Sweet Stampin' - Happy Birthday!

Hello everyone :o)

It's our 7th birthday over at Sweet Stampin', so we have a nice easy 'birthday' challenge theme, plus a prize from Crafts & Me and an extra mystery prize too.

Here's my card...

I used some fab new goodies from Crafter's Companion's Birthday Party collection, with a super cute older image from DigiStamp Boutique.

Items Used
7" square card blank made from A3 Centura Pearl Snow White Hint of Gold
Image - Daisy & Cake - DigiStamp Boutique
Colouring - Spectrum Noirs & Illustrators & Clear Sparkle pen - Crafter's Companion
(left the die in place after cutting, and inked the lettering with white ink before removing)
Core'dinations Darks cardstock
Doodlebug enamel dots

Ooh, we've booked to see Fantastic Beasts at the cinema tomorrow... I've been looking forward to this for months (we're all slightly Harry Potter obsessed in our house).  I'm probably more excited than the kids lol... can't wait!!

Thanks for popping in, hope you all have a lovely evening :o)

Sweet Stampin' - red for remembrance

Hello everyone :o)

Our challenge this week at Sweet Stampin' is 'red for remembrance' and we're sponsored by Crafts U Love.

I made a Christmas card to add to the (teeny tiny) pile, using a fab new image from DigiStamp Boutique.

Items Used
Image & Sentiment - Merry & Bright - DigiStamp Boutique
Colouring - Spectrum Noir Illustrators
Papers - Sara Signature Contemporary Christmas 6x6 paper pad
Memory Box Precious Stars die
Doodlebug enamel glitter dot
Glamour Dust

I had to treat myself to the new Illustrator pens from Crafter's Companion... I've been playing with them lots and love them!  There's a brush nib and a fine bullet nib in each pen, gorgeous rich colours and they blend beautifully... can't wait for the rest of the colours to come out, I need them all ;o)

Thanks for popping in, hope you have a lovely evening!
