Upsy Daisy thank you card

Hi my stamping friends!!

I have a simple little card to show you today using one of my favourite techniques which is using your markers directly onto the stamp. It works beautifully with this big Upsy Daisy stamp.
The background on the So saffron and Peach parfait was achieved using the ink pad pressed lightly onto the cardstock.

If you have any questions, just ask! Thanks for stopping by and Happy Stamping!
Love Claire

Kindness with free buttons!

Hi my stamping friends!
I hope you are all feeling bright and chirpy today!
Don't you just looooove these bright little buttons? They look so sweet teamed up with the new A la carte Hello Blossoms stamp. I have used the old olive marker to just ink the stems and scallop base and then adhered 5 of these little Daffodil delight flower buttons on top.
Again, I have used the markers to colour the Kindness stamp from the Heard from the heart stamp set. The sentiment says: "Kindness comes in many forms but always from the heart". A very lovely sentiment! The ribbon used here is the luscious 1-1/4" Striped Grosgrain ribbon in Old olive. This ribbon has a beautiful soft feel to it.

Happy Stamping!

My beautiful friend...

This is a little card that I made for my best friend... She is one amazing lady having just given birth to her fourth baby! They have 3 little boys and have just finally had their princess as number 4! I am so happy for them! Love you Nat!

These cute little buttons and bright ribbon just makes me happy! This card was very much inspired by this card from Andrea Walford. I am a big fan of Andrea's work!

Something pretty.... and some upcoming blog candy!

Hello my friends!

I have a pretty little card to share with you today. This was made for my Mum's birthday in late May. I just love making these sweet little flowers at the moment! I have used the square lattive embossing folder for the crumb cake base of the card and there are also some stamped flourishes from the Vintage vogue stamp set there too. The other colours I have used are Chocolate chip, Very vanilla, Blushing bride and Pear pizzazz.

Here you can see the flower up a little bit closer - it is made using the scallop circle punch. You cut the scallop circle into a spiral before winding it up into the flower shape. I must confess that I learnt this technique on youtube!

I have also noticed that I am coming up to my 100th blog post so I thought that it was high time I had a blog candy competition!! I will be back in the next couple of days with more information about how you can enter to win some free Stamping items!

Stampin' up! are also offering a great promotion this month. It is a free gift with purchase promo which means that if you spend $100 you will receive a free roll of ribbon and a set of 48 designer buttons (see picture below)! Click here for more information.

Please comment or email me at if you have any queries about this card or this months special offer.

Happy Stamping!
Love, Claire
