I hope you all had an enjoyable weekend. We managed some quality family time with a trip to the zoo and it was so nice to be outside in the fresh air making memories together!
I've managed quite a bit of craft time this week (hooray!) so i'm on track with this week's Global Design Project challenge!
This week we are casing the designer....
I love the colour combo that Kylie has used here but I've chosen to case just the style of card ...
For this card I have used the following products:
To make this card
Tempting Turquoise measuring 3,1/4" x 5,3/4
I hope you like my entry, thanks for reading!
A bit late in the week for me but I got there eventually!
This week's Global Design Project challenge is a theme week all about Winged Creatures!
What does Winged Creatures mean to me?! Well, Butterflies were what stood out to me first, however this challenge is designed to get you crafting out of your comfort zone, well for me that's the idea anyway so I didn't reach for my many butterfly stamps and dies...instead I opted for an unused stamp set that I have in my stock...Best Birds!
I love this stampset and I have many projects pinned to Pinterest unsing it but nope it's still untouched...until this week!
The card measures 4" x 5, 3/4".
Using the Stazon ink I have stamped the branch onto watercolour paper and then the bird to get the image that the bird is standing on the branch. I also stamped "it's a good day".
On a seperate piece of Watercolour Paper I have stamped the bird again and 3 flowers.
Using the watercolour pencils and an aqua painter I have coloured the images in and left to dry.
Whilst there are coordinating framelits for this stamp set, I didn't purchase them so I have cut the bbird and flowers out using my good old scissors.
I have attached the bird and the flowers to the base image using Dimensional foam pads.
To make the edge of the watercolour paper & DSP look rough, I have scratched the edge using the blade of my scissors.
The DSP has been stuck to the Early Espresso cardstock, trim added and the image using dimensionals to make it stand out.
Watercolouring is still very new to me but overall my technique is improving. This isn't a traditonal "my style" of card but I hope you like it!

Have a great weekend!
This months' project class was based around the Succulents Bundle that is one of the new products available in the Spring/Summer seasonal catalogue.
This set jumped out of the catalogue at me as it screams Spring and who doesn't love spring?!!
For this class I wanted to make something more than a card as the large flower dies make the most beautiful 3D flowers....and this is what they made!
I picked the flower pots up from Wilkinsons and used some Sisal that I purchased from Hobbycraft and ordinary dressmaker pins with a pearl top.

Hope you're all managing to shelter from this horrible weather we are experiencing at the moment.
Today I am sharing with you a 3-d project which makes a nice change from the usual cards!
These boxes measure 2" square and they are really handy for small gifts. I like to fill mine with sweet treats for table gifts and that's exactly the idea behind this project.
Filled with lovely mints, I have added a couple of strips of DSP, and some ribbon and bakers twine to secure.
The tag is made from a few punched shapes and a stamp set that is just perfect for this sort of project!
All of these products are available to order now and remember you can order a FREE Sale-a-Bration product with orders of £45!
