Playful Pals Bundle

Today I had a Craft Day at my house and one of the sessions was boxes using the Playful Pals Bundle. The ladies had such fun with these stamps and matching Dies.
Above is a cheeky chicken.

A Mr and Mrs Cow complete with eyelashes and bow.

Mrs. pig looks astonished in the next photo and Mr. pig looks a bit grumpy.

A pair of white chickens this time.complete with ruffled feathers.

A cute soft Suede with dots stamped with Early Expresso Ink.

Next up is "Chicken Pox" complete with glasses and a dinky bow.

A pair of goofy looking frogs.

Lastly the original animals which I made before the class. I gave the ladies a chance to decide which animals they wanted to make when they started the class. They completed two cows,two pigs and two chickens each and one person managed to do the frogs as well. We had a lot of laughs!

Circle of Spring

I have been preparing these cards for a Make and Take this week at St. Oswalds Church, Bidston.
We decided to use the Circle of Spring Stamp Set from the main Catalogue. It matches the Wondrous Wreath Dies and has a number of useful sentiments including Thank You, Happy Birthday, Happy Easter, Happy Mother's Day and Hello Spring.

I embossed the Marina Mist Cardstock with the Decorative Dots Embossing Folder. The tiny flowers were punched out using the flower Itty Bitty Accents Punch.
The bow comes in the set.

The background for this card was some of the Garden in Bloom Designer Series Paper. I inked the edges to give a bit of definition. I added a few extra tiny flowers from the stamp set and finished it off with a bow made using the Bow Builder Punch.

Picture Perfect

I have really enjoyed playing with the Picture Perfect Stamp Set from the Spring/ Summer Occasions Catalogue. The first card was a welcome card for my Upline Monica Gale when she came over from Yorkshire to do a Training Day for us last week.

You could use any colour combination for these awesomely created birds.
The Flower Stamp is one of the ones that you can choose for free with an order of £45 or more during the Saleabration period.It is called "What I love."

This is mainly a Pool Party and Bermuda Bay combination with a speck of Calypso Coral for the throat.

The colour combo here is Mossy Meadow, Always Artichoke and Rose Red.

Balloon Celebration Bundle

There is a fun bundle in the Spring/Summer Occasions Catalogue which includes the Balloon Celebration Stamp Set and the matching Balloon Bouquet Punch.
The first card was designed by Monica Gale and we made it at our Training Day last week.
I love the colour combo of Blushing Bride and Pool Party.

Inspired by our Training Day I made the next card for one of my Downlines, Tracey, who has just promoted to Silver. I turned to Brights this time using Rich Razzleberry, Melon Mambo, Bermuda Bay and Daffodil Delight. The Wink of Stella finished it off nicely.

This card was inspired by one which I saw on Julie Kettlewell's Blog. This is a good was to use up scraps of Designer Series Paper. The three pieces used here are from the "It's My Party" 12 x 12 Designer Series Paper Stack.

The last two cards are quick and easy Thank you Cards for some of my Customers.
I love it when you can make cards quickly that still have a bit of dimension for interest.
It was the spotty stamp that you stamp on to the balloons that sold the set to me as well as the varied sentiments.
