A Bird Ballad Flourish

Rimmer is growing fast, interesting in everything... including ink pads (there was a near miss with him almost creating a card with inky feet) eating lots, and sleeping too, so I made the most of his nap time and are joining the Global Design challenge with my creation.


I like the central strip with the little elements at the top and bottom in the sketch, and made these my main elements.

 #GDP198

I took liberty and turned the design 90 degrees so I could use some DSP and stamped "scraps".... I hate to waste anything when I create!


I added the flourish die cut to compliment the dSP, and by doing in whisper white it's subtle and doesn't over power the DSP. For my touch of bling I used some Frosted Epoxy droplets.



Thanks for visiting today, I hope you enjoyed viewing my project. Stay tuned for more inspiration and tips this month. If you live in Australia and don't already have a demonstrator I'd love love to be yours. 


PS: here is sleeping beauty - he's figured out how to get on top of the big scratchy pole already!

Stampin Friends July 2019

Welcome to this months Stampin' Friends Blog Hop. This month's theme is has no boundaries, anything goes, so you are going to see a lot different themes. I decided on a Christmas in July theme, after all, you can never to be prepared for Christmas - it always seem to sneak up on me before I know it! 



I popped some winter coloured treats in a mini treat box and tied a Tiffany type bow, and created a little tag with some off cuts and spare die cuts (I keep a container full of random die cuts just in case).

After water colouring the background with Balmy Blue, Highland Heather and Pool Party, I die cut a sentiment using the Merry Christmas dies. When the background was dry, stamped the snowflakes from Colorful Seasons and embossed with Shimmer White embossing powder, then lastly stamped Merry. You can see the shimmer a little better in this picture, I was trying to beat the sun setting when I took these photos, there is a lot more shimmer in real life.


I hope the projects you've seen here on my blog today have inspired you & brightened your day. You are currently visiting Sue Vine at MissPinksCraftSpot. Please see the list below & hop through all of the friends on the list to see all our projects. You don't want to miss any!

What's your favourite DSP?

Welcome to the monthly Stampin' Dreams Blog Hop. This month's theme is all about DSP - Designer Series Paper. You are currently visiting Sue Vine at MissPinksCraftSpot from Adelaide, Australia. 

There are so many beautiful DSP's in the Annual Catalogue it's very hard to choose a favourite,.... and I change my mind all the time!!!! My husband would say that's nothing new if you ask him, I say it's because of my star sign, I'm a Libra.

After much agony of choosing a DSP I decided to make  the Bird Ballad Designer Series Paper the theme for my card, I hope you like it:



There are lots of images and designs to choose from in this pack, my daughter likes birds, so with her help the choice was made.  I added a double bow using the Organdy Striped Ribbon and added the sentiment from Flourishing Phrases to finish.



I hope my card has inspired you & brightened your day. You are currently visiting Sue Vine at MisspinksCraftSpot. Follow the list below & hop through to see all the amazing DSP creations, you don't want to miss any!
