So this months challenge was a stampin stack.  So three cards using the same bundle

For mine I decided to use the Watercolour Wings Bundle, I mean why not, seriously who doesn't love butterflies....

This one I got a little smart and used two bundles the Watercolour Wings again and the Six Sided Sampler Bundle.

Last and Definitely not least is my card I made for my beautiful little Granddaughters Birthday witch is today. Again I used two bundles The Watercolour Wings and the Flower Patch Bundle.

 How gorgeous is her little bling butterfly!!!?

Colour Me... Creative Wisteria Wonder

So this is my first entry in the Colour Me challenge and what a week to join... I LOVE WISTERIA WONDER! Sorry for shouting but you might notice I love Purple lol. I went pretty simple with this card. I stamped the Perfect Peacock stamp with Versamark and embossed with Silver Embossing Powder. I coloured in with Wisteria Wonder ink pad and a Blender Pen in a single coat for the larger part of the feathers and twice over for the 'eye' of them. the sentiment was done in Wisteria Wonder too and it was from the Butterfly Basics stamp set. Finished off with a rhinestone for the dot one the I.
can you spot what else I added to the card to make it pop
That's right I used the crystal effects on the eye of the feathers. What do you think, does it make it pop do you think? Anyway I hope you like my card. And until next time stay well and happy crafting Tam xx

Mojo Monday #409

Yay I am back again for another weeks challenge with Mojo Monday #409. I really do struggle with DSP and am trying to force myself to use it because I love the designs so much. Normally I try to keep everything I use in the challenges current but this week I decided to use the retired Cannery Framelits, and I am hanging my head in shame here as it is actually the first time I have EVER used it (slaps own hand) I hope you like it. It is certainly something a little different from what I normally create so please leave comments on your opinion and suggestions to improve :). The DSP I used is Farmers Market, I used several different sheets out of the pack. I stamped with Old Olive for the sentiment and to sponge the 'jar'. Early Espresso Bakers Twine was used for the lid ribbon
and no the peach isn't a stamp, I cut it out of the DSP, Isn't it exquisite!!!!
Well until next time happy crafting and stay well Tam xx

Challenges #8 and #256

Good Morning folks! I am finally back at my crafting table today after a bit of a break, I've been off making fences and greenhouses and grassing the yard etc to make it a bit more functional and pretty :). So the first thing I thought I would do on my return was participate in a challenge or two.
 So this post is incorporating two challenges.... Stamp Ink Paper and The Paper Players challenges. The Stamp Ink Paper #8 challenge was a '├Łour Choice'and The Paper Players #256 was 'It's Hip to be Square' So here is my project...  
It is a square card using Melon Mambo and Whisper White with a tiny bit of Blushing Bride and a bit of Dazzling Details Silver Glitter along with a few Basic Rhinestones to finish off the card. 
All stamping was done from the Hostess set Best Thoughts. The butterfly and sentiment were stamped with Melon Mambo but the flower was done with Versamark and Melon Mambo Embossing Powder. I coloured the flower using Blender Pens with Blushing Bride and then did the centres with a little Melon Mambo. I hope you like it
I think this is one of my favorite sets at the moment, i just LOVE colouring in!

Well until next time I hope you all stay well and happy crafting Tam xx Well that was an oops for me, I always forget that the deadlines are for the US and I am in Australia lol. So I didn't get to add it to the lineup for the Paper Players, there's always next week right ;)
