Baby Bear

Here's some more 'Baby Bear' love. 
Little Shop on Alabama in Blenheim needed some baby cards so this is where these little guys reside for now.  Little Shop on Alabama.  The gorgeous little shop has lovely handmade gifts so be sure to check it out next time you're in Blenheim.

I'm in love with the little enamel shapes.  Pictured here are hearts from the 'Subtles' pack.  I'm slowly collecting them all as they are just sweet little details to add to cards and scrapbook pages.  They are available in Metallic, 2016-18 In Colors, Brights, Regals and Subtles.

Thanks to those who came to my class this morning.  If you live in Nelson I would love you to join us next time September 23rd.  Happy crafting!  Sal x

Fox on a Box

Last month a friend hosted a private online workshop.  I made small kits in advance and the participants around the country used their own inks and stamps to complete the projects.  It was lots of fun and a learning curve for me- especially with the video making.  Today's share is the gift I gave the hostess. 
I love this design by Pootles Papercraft  Box for 3x3 cards or a soap  I popped in one of Nelson's 'Global Soaps' which fit well.  The colour scheme is the Foxy Suite colours- Calypso Coral, Pool Party and Smoky Slate.  The stamps are 'Foxy Friends' and 'Thoughtful Banners'.  The silver Satin Ribbon is so beautiful!

It's so nice to see the sun today.  Enjoy the rest of your weekend. x

Keep it Simple

I'm a big fan of simple cards and 'A Little Foxy' DSP certainly paved the way for this simple creation.  I love the colours in the Foxy Suite- fresh, funky and modern!

I stamped the sentiment using the 'Labeler' set.  A handy one to have, that's for sure.  The stars are from the 'Metallic Enamel Shapes' pack.

See you soon! x

Scenic Sayings-yes please!

I'm getting a lot of use out of the 'Scenic Sayings' stamp set.  It's actually a set I won in the Prize Patrol at Onstage earlier this year.  :)  Thanks Stampin' Up!
For my first card I have embossed the sentiment with 'Copper Embossing Powder' and the yummy copper washi tape is from the 'Affectionately Yours' pack.

'Hey There Friend'- another cool 'Scenic Sayings' stamp.  Bold, funky and modern.  I was inspired by a gift bag in the catty for this diagonal design.   

See the doily?  That's a metallic foil doily turned upside down.  The background spots are from 'Gorgeous Grunge'- a very well used stamp set, that's for sure. 

Don't overlook the 'Scenic Sayings' set.  I give it the thumbs up.  Thanks for visiting. xx

'In this World' Easel Card

We had our Nelson Extravaganza yesterday.  Huge thanks to Jacque for coming down, all the demos who taught and helped on the day and of course the lovely guests who attended the day.  It's a big, fun day that's for sure.
The theme was 'messy' this time.  My Easel card had a lot of inking and sponging.  Dyeing the burlap was pretty messy but I had done that for the ladies ahead of time.  I used a few drops of Dapper Denim Reinker in  a ziplock bag and coloured about a metre at a time.

The door opens to reveal the rest of the sentiment and a little puppy ('Sitting Here').  'Timeless Textures' stamps were used around the edges of the panel and the 'porch'.  The inks used in the card are Dapper Denim, Early Espresso, Tip Top Taupe and the door was sponged in 'Soft Suede'.

Thanks for looking :) Sal.
