Magical Day by SU! Knight in Shining Armour mini card

Hello there,
Today's card is a fun mini sized card using the brilliant new narrow notecards from the S/S catalogue, you can bet you'll be seeing a lot more of these over the next few weeks ;-), which I've teamed with the most adorable stamp set e-ver! Magical Day!
 I used my Stampin' Blends to colour this little guy in :-) Video tutorial coming soon...
 I used some (retired) black glimmer paper (not just for halloween) with the NEW Tailored Tag punch as a fun layer behind the knight, you could of course use silver glimmer paper if you don't have any of this black.
 The sentiment is from the Sale a Bration Epic Celebrations stamp set and the papers are also freebies (both available to choose when you spend £45) called Bubbles and Fizz.
 Isn't this little fella just adorable??
Well, that's all from me today, I'll be back soon with another make :-)
'Till then, happy stampin'

Red Guitar Epic Celebration Card - A FREE SaB Stamp Set

Hello there!
I have been making a lot of fun cards recently and I've also managed to photograph them to share with you on here!! Go me ;-) 
OK, so lets start today with the FREE Sale-a-Bration stamp set called "Epic Celebration" (See Page 12) which is just the perfect set for those ever tricky teenagers.
 I used the guitar for this card but there are lots of other fab images in this set, which you can choose for FREE with orders over £45 in my SHOP. This set is going to be one of those keeper sets for me,  for sure!
 I love how the little Gold Glitter flakes lift this card from cool to blinging great ;-)
I also added plenty of Wink of Stella to the guitars after water colouring them using my Real Red ink pad and both an aqua painter and then blender pens for the finer details.
 And this fab sentiment is also included in the set!
So, do you love this set as much as I do??
Thanks so much for stopping by today and if you have any questions about this card, SaB or anything SU! feel free leave me a comment.
I'll be back with you tomorrow with another (can I say adorable) card :-)

Inspire. Create. Challenges #009 - Love

I'm here with another post for Inspire. Create. Challenges and we are at week #009 already! The theme this week is "Love" 
A nice broad theme with plenty of choices for entering. We would love it if you would join in with this challenge, sharing your makes. You can see what the rest of the fabulous DT has made HERE if you fancy some top notch inspiration!
So, I have had the New "Party Pandas" (FREE Sale-a-Bration) stamps for quite a while and this is the first chance I've had to play with them and I couldn't resist giving this adorable little panda a heart to hold...
I die cut the smallest heart from the Sweet and Sassy framelits dies, stamped the sentiment, also from the Party Pandas set,  and used a marker to edge it (TIP HERE). I then used a craft knife to cut around the pandas paws so I could slip the heart over the envelope he usually holds.
I also used to my Stampin' Blends to add shadow behind the heart and add a little blush on his cheeks, let's call that 'artistic license' shall we? ;-)
TIP: I cut the left hand arm (as you look at it) a little further back than it is designed to be (trim a little at a time) so the heart could be slipped down far enough.
TIP 2: Only add glue to the centre band of the heart so the top and bottom still pop out a little.
I stamped the background around the panda using the tiny hearts from the "Heart Happiness" stamp set and the larger, striped heart is from the same set.
Finished with a pink Tinsel Trim (!!!) bow, soooo fun!
And of course the Pandas are a FREE Sale-a-Bration stamp set!! Whoop! So, you can choose this set when you spend over £45 in my SHOP :-)
Let me know if you have any questions and we all hope you join in with this fortnights Inspire. Create. Challenge :-)

NEW Flying Home Birthday Card using Stampin' Blends

Hello again, this is my second post today and for this post I have a card to share with you! (to see the first post with all the new Spring/Summer catalogue and sale-a-bration details, click HERE
I made this card for my step-daughters birthday using the new stamp set (now available!!) Flying Home and coloured it using the Stampin' Blends :-) It was quite easy to colour with these pens, even for an alcohol marker novice like me. I totally need to practice some more with the pens as I love the saturation you get and that's exactly what we'll be doing at my Three Month Blends Class, more info on that tomorrow, but for now, the card.
 I made a DL size card (21cm x 10.5) for a change today...
 I stamped the image in memento ink and coloured it before die cutting with the stitched edge framelits...
 I added a layer of pink glimmer paper which I had in my stash and didn't realise it had retired :-(  There is some fun new 6x6" glimmer paper in the Spring/Summer catalogue though, on Page 37 ;-)
 The sentiment is from another new set, Bird Banter, stamped and white embossed on a Flirty Flamingo card strip.
Well, I love this set so you'll be seeing lots more over the coming months with it! Don't forget to check out this morning's post HERE but here's a fun little peek at what's in the Spring/Summer catalogue highlights from SU!
Thanks so much for looking again today :-)
