Pick me up – time to be happy

I like to use sketches to get my cre8tive juices flowing. I have found a great site that has many other talented Stampin! Up! users on there and have used their recent sketch to cre8te the following card. So here is the sketch – No: PCCCS085:

A close friend of mine is going through a rough time at the moment and I cre8ted this card to offer a pick me up for her.

I chose to cre8te this card using Paper Craft Crew Card Sketch #85 and the basic gray colour card choices of Basic Gray, Melon Mambo and Old Olive.

I used Basic Gray as the base card and started by stamping the background in Basic Gray with ink dots from the Gorgeous Grunge stamp set. I then layered framelit banners in Old Olive and Melon Mambo cardstock underneath the sentiment along with a scallop punched from Basic Gray cardstock and hole punched the edges. On Very Vanilla cardstock the ink dots were stamped again in Old Olive with the so sorry sentiment stamped on top in Basic Black. I decided to layer this on Basic Black cardstock to make the sentiment pop a little more.

Inside the card I have layered the second part of the sentiment on Melon Mambo cardstock shaped from the banner framelit dies.

This is one of my first few cre8tions of this year. I hope you enjoyed it and will check back for more soon!

Till then,

New year – new look!

Hey bloggers,

It’s been a while since Mum & I have blogged but I decided to spice up our blog a little and moved websites.

We’ve had a quiet past year with not many paper crafting projects emerging from our little studio! This year we are attempting to change this and have been inking, tearing, embossing and stamping more frequently!

I hope we can keep up with the frequent blogging this year and can inspire all you other crafters out there. Please feel free to critique our work with respect and I hope we can gain inspiration from all other talented bloggers out there.

Watch this space as our blog emerges with cre8tivity!
