Simply Sketched Saturday Challenge

SSSC Header

Hi everyone and welcome to another Simply Sketched Saturday Challenge blog hop!. For anyone new to my blog this is a challenge that I take part in once a month with some fellow crafters. Usually we are given a sketch to work with, but this month is slighlty different – we have been given four Stampin’ Up colours, definitely a challenge!

These are the colours that have been picked for us:SSSC June

They are lovely colours and I really enjoyed working with them. It took me a while to manage to come up with something using all four colours, but I got there!

I used the Falling Flowers stamp set and it’s coordinating framelits dies, May Flowers. I love this stamp set as there is so much you can do with it. I love the flourish and chose it as a background, along with the smallest flower in the set, for my bold die cut flower. 

I really had fun playing around with this stamp set and these colours, I hope you like the end result. My fellow crafters have come up with some amazing projects using these same colours, so make sure that you use the buttons below to go and have a look.

Happy Crafting’

Pootler’s Design Team – Week 1


Hi everyone and welcome to my latest blog. I feel very priviledged that I have been picked as a Pootler’s Design Team Member for the month of June.  Pootles (AKA Sam Hammond) is a wonderfully talented crafter and she chooses people each month to design a card that will feature on her blog. So for the month of June myself and four other crafters will be blogging for the Design Team every Thursday. I will be featuring the same stamp set over the next four weeks, showing different ways it can be used.

The stamp set picked for this month is a beautiful floral one called Remarkable You.

I absolutely love one of the new Stampin Up colours for this year – Tranquil Tide, and thought it was perfect for the flower I used in this card. As its such a strong colour I decided to just use it along with Whisper White and not add any other colours into the mix. The designer series paper pack Delightful Daisies has this beautiful paper, which has a faded, or distressed look which I love!

I really hope you enjoyed my card this week and that you will come back and take a look next Thursday to see what else I have come up with.  This stamp set is a beautifully versatile set that I am really enjoying playing with!

Sale-a-bration Saturday

Hi, so today’s blog is an extra one for the week to remind you that some of the fabulous sale-a-bration goodies retire on Monday, so you might want to hop over to shop and see what you can get while it’s still there! There is more than one project here for today because I love these products!


I’ve used lots of the sale-a-bration stamps and papers and I’m really not sure yet which is my favourite – I love the little chick, he is so cute and very versatile, as you can see from my photos.

The Hello stamp set is also great – I’ve only posted one of my cards here made with that stamp but again its very versatile.

The Perfectly Artistic designer paper stack is great too, watercolour on one side and marbled on the other, it can be used for so many different projects.

Thanks for stopping by, I hope you have enjoyed these projects and you are having a great weekend!
