Celebration Balloons with Happy Birthday Gorgeous & Calligraphy Essentials & More !

Today I have a striking little card in Lovely Lipstick and Black card stock with some gold accents.

I recently ordered the Calligraphy Essentials stamp set and decided to make a celebratory card.  I really liked the fonts in this set and decided that I would carefully colour my sentiment in using a black marker pen.



I stamped and gold heat embossed some balloons and used the Balloon Bouquet Punch to punch them out.

......And those bubbles ?  Those are one of the elements from the Bubble Over stamp set.  I finished the whole thing by adding a sprinkling of gold sequins.

Well I hope you like the recipe - I think its rather nice to get out a selection of stamp sets using elements from each set to make something unique and fun.  Why restrict yourself to just one set if you have an abundant crafty stash ?

Thanks for looking - and I hope you will pop back.

Bye for now,

Linda x

Busy, Busy, Busy ! Customer Sneak Peeks of the Dashing Deer Bundle

Oh my - I am working against the clock now ! 

I spent yesterday prepping some cute little projects which will be enclosed with the new Seasonal Brochures I am sending out to my customers ready for the launch of the new seasonal Autumn/Winter Brochure next week.



I always think that seeing something in "the flesh" helps to inspire those creative juices.

All I can say is thank crikey for the Stamparatus which was invaluable in precision stamping all the sentiments and verses for all my cards (in excess of 100 cards !!).



I had a good old dose of "crafter's elbow" after die-cutting all the gorgeous hand-stamped Christmas stags.  Aren't they just gorgeous ?   I think that the Dashing Deer Bundle is going to be a winner this year.  Well that's my prediction anyway.

The colour scheme for my card is a monochomatic one.  I used Coastal Cabana.  And have you spotted the trees ?   They are from the Lovely As a Tree stamp set (one of the first sets I purchased as a demonstrator five years ago ........ and it's still available to order !!).


There is a slight delay in getting my brochures in the post due to the fact that I rather stoooopidly ordered a batch of them in French !!!   However, my customers can rest assured  that they will be receiving their free complimentary brochures before all the new products go live on 5th September.

Jar of Love - in Poppy Parade

OK .... so not a jar in sight !

But I do love how taking just two stamps from the many that are included in the Jar of Love stamp set lead to this !  Actually I have used three elements if you include the cute and inspirational little sentiment. 

The stamp set and co-ordinating Every Jars Framelits have been around since last year and I have used them a lot, but wanted to do something just a little bit different with them.



Poppy Parade is one of this year's returning colours and is a member of the Brights collection.  I think it's a gorgeous shade of red and I shall be using it for some Christmas makes shortly.   Teaming it with some pretty white heat embossing really showcases it's vibrancy.

The little die cut blossoms with their rhinestone embellishments just makes the design "pop".

Again ..... it's a very simple design, as to be honest, I struggle with anything too complicated, but I think its very effective.

Hope you like it too.

Things have been quiet from me, as I have been on annual leave for two weeks, but I am back and in full swing now, prepping for a big mail drop as the new Seasonal Catalogue goes live "NEXT WEEK".  How exciting !

Thanks for looking, and ciao for now.
