About Me

My photo
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.

Somewhere over the rainbow

Good morning!

Today over at the Sweet Stampin Challenge Blog the theme is Rainbows.  This can be a card including rainbows, or colours from a rainbow.
I went with the later on my card today and I also went One Layer!

The card base is Confetti White, and then I stamped the images from Growing Green in Certainly Celery, Daffodil Delight, Pumpkin Pie and Real Red.  I used an Aqua Painter to blend the colours in each image slightly to give a water colour effect.  This card is quite well suited to having some water added and doesn't buckle easily, though don't drown the card in water :o)
The sentiment is from Curly Cute and was inked in Old Olive and placed using my Stamp-a-ma-jig, though I think it might be slightly wonky still!  That's my hand-eye co-ordination and placement though!!!!!!!!

Right, the sun is currently shining, so I'm off out to Kew Gardens.  I've not been before so am really looking forward to it :o)

Have a lovely Sunday...........
