Last week I decided to play with a stamp and die set I had forgotten about ! I love this stamp set as so many uses and I made a bulk lot of these for any upcoming ladies occasions.
I also had a go at colouring them in ( which I will be first to admit I am hopeless at colouring ) but just love the scribble effect I did.
Supplies :- Beautiful You Stamp set, Nuvo Alcohol Markers, Spectrum Noir Sparkle Brush Pens
So now with christmas is over with, now begins the mad rush of birthdays I have in next few months. I decided to start today with a card for my god daughter’s upcoming first birthday and for a special little man in my life.
For my god daughter’s card I decided to go with a Fairy theme as I know she has a fairy birthday cake on order so it seemed fitting. For the background I grabbed a piece of laminated sheet ( as I have no acetate ) and put Distress Oxides Worn Lipstick and Pickled Raspberry on it and spritzed with water and placed white card on top. This is first time I have done this and I am very pleased with result.
Such a shame the camera did not pick up the gorgeous glitter from Spectrum Noir Sparkle Brush Pens. Again this was my first time using these and again I am so impressed with these and so easy to use. I have my eye on 2 more other sets ! This set was Spring / Summer.
For the special little man in my life I decided to use the Space Explorer stamp and die set. Again I am not that brilliant at colouring but i gave it a go … I know I have room for ALOT of improvement but I was pleased and hopefully little man will be too. The pens I used were Nuvo Alcohol Markers.
Feeling bit more pleased with myself after my disappointment with Poppy stamp and dies.
I needed a storage for my die’s but really did not want to spend mega money so I had a brain wave …yes scary thought I know but I had an old CD Storage wallet gathering dust and that is what gave me the idea.
I bought a roll of magnetic tape from Poundland and made some basic background square card templates to slot inside and Voila !!!
So there we have it a cheap affordable Die Cut storage for £2 – These CD storage can also be found in Poundshops
Supplies :- Memento DewDrops : Summer Sky, Angel Pink, Dandelion and Tangelo
Stamps are Flower Blocks – Clearly Besotted Stamps
As it is my mum’s birthday soon and her favourite flower is Poppies… I was pleased to find a stamp set & die set for a good price.
Well today I had a rare day off and thought I would give them a go… how disappointed I am with this set. Firstly the stamps are not individual stamps, nor would then attach to a stamp block or my WRMK…. so I had to work blind with them.
First attempt was stamp image and place paper on top then use die cut and second attempt was to use distress ink on to paper, place die on top and then stamp outline in black and place paper on top….must be an easier way to use these stamps surely ? Of course there is … means I have to cut them out and add foam or stix 2 on top *sighs*
I honestly thought given they are Sheena Douglass I would be impressed but alas I am not.
Well next Sunday is my gorgeous godson 2nd Birthday, where has my little man gone ?
As he is dinosaur mad I really hope he likes his card. I was lucky enough to find this die set on Ebay ( don’t you just love Ebay ? I do ! )
Next weekend I will be busy making dinosaur cupcake toppers and cupcake wrappers, so if all goes well I will post my efforts, I say efforts as never done these before so wish me luck !

After a very manic week I am slowly getting all my happy mail ( well apart from a seller in China that sent me 4 embossing folders instead of 8 ! but am on the case with that ) and a lovely rare day off, I decided to play around with new dies, folders and stamps.
I have been after a Ribbon Awareness stamp for what seems ages and finally got a stamp set, although ribbon not as big as I would like, I must not complain.
These are nowhere finished to my satisfaction but as I said am only playing around.
Supplies :- WRMK Precision Stamp Tool, CBS Colour Chameleon Stamp Set, Newton’s Nook Support Stamp Set, Memento Dew Drops – Grape Jelly, Lulu Lavender, Angel Pink, Tuxedo Black, Distress Inks – Spun Sugar & Pickled Raspberry
I just recently bought WRMK Precision Press Stamping Tool from CraftWorld after reading so many fab reviews…Where has this tool been since I started !!
I know there are other varieties of this stamping tool out there and I am not going to make any comparisons as I don’t own any others nor would it be right of me to do so.
So what made me buy this ? I suffer from Tennis & Golfers elbow and after a while I get excruciating pains and have to stop, Not any more with this handy tool. I must admit my stamping is now so much better and so much easier. There are so many pro’s for this product…. Light, Compact. perfect stamping, can easily re ink an image if not correct and not have to worry about lining stamp up, layer stamps, card did not move when stamping …need I go on ?
If anyone is thinking about getting this or any other stamping tool my advice is DO IT !
It was so easy to stamp and I did 50 Wish Jar Little Notes within approx 2 hours from scratch.
