About Me

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. If you want to try before you buy, then check out my classes and get booked on.

Double Challenge Day - take two..........

I really liked the Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge this week, but am a bit late getting started on it.  Having looked at some of the challenges throughout the rest of this week, I thought I'd link the Sweet Sunday sketch in with The Color Dare this week.  The colours are ones I would never have thought to put together - So Saffron, Concord Crush and a Neutral!

I grabbed my stack of In Colour DSP and my Trendy Trees stamp set for this one and thought I'd make a lovely Thinking of You card.

I used the trusty Stamp-a-ma-jig to get my trees trunks and the leafy tops all lined up, and decided the put the more standout Concord Crush colour in the middle, but to make it a bit more interesting I stamped it twice and cut one out with the 1" Circle Punch and popped it on top with a dimensional.  I thought it gave a nice bit of dimension to the card.  I used the Eyelet Border Punch along the bottom, and added in some Crumb Cake textured card for mounting.

I wasn't too sure these colours would really work together, but I think they look great!

The Details: 
Card / Paper - Concord Crush smooth and DSP / So Saffron DSP / Very Vanilla / Crumb Cake textured
Stamps / Ink - Trendy Trees / Crumb Cake / So Saffron / Concord Crush

  1. I've always really liked this stamp set...not sure why I haven't purchased it yet! ;) Great layout and I agree that popping out the one tree in the middle gives it that added little touch! Pretty card!

  2. Very nice - I like how you popped out the middle tree. Thanks for joining us in the Color Dare this week.
