I have been a Stampin' Up Demonstrator for almost two years now, and when I signed up it was just for the starter kit and discount on products........ I never imagined it would snowball into being a business like it has. I am a new Mummy to my little boy, Isaac, who is almost four months old now. I am spending my maternity leave enjoying watch him grow up, becoming his own little person, and also trying to build my business up. Stampin' Up! have amazing products and I would love to share my crafting passion with as many people as possible. I am always putting through orders, so if you need anything, or just want some information or advise, please do not hesitate to contact me.

Colour Q Challenge for a Tuesday

Hello everyone!

Today I wanted to share with you a card I have made for the Colour Q Challenge
As the name suggests it is a colour challenge - this weeks colours are Daffodil Delight, Old Olive, Crumb Cake, Not Quite Navy and Whisper White.

I went with a simple design using the Printed Petals stamp set and a sentiment from the Tiny Tags set.

The card base is Crumb Cake textured card, layered with Not Quite Navy textured card which has the largest Printed Petal stamped on it twice in Whisper White ink.  
I added a nice bright Daffodil Delight Printed Petal punched out with the Scallop Circle Punch and topped it with an Old Olive Designer Button.
The Sentiment was stamped in Not Quite Navy and I used the Word Window Punch, then popped it in the card with a Dimensional.

Tomorrow is going to be a mixed bag or fun and not so fun!  I have the day off work so will be spending it being creative and making lots of lovely cards and maybe a few 3D items too, the downside is I'm off work as my car is going for a service!  Could be expensive :o(

I'll be back tomorrow with my days creations.........  xxx
