Coming up Roses

Gooood morning!!

Popping in with a quick post this morning!

I created this card using WPlus9 Coming Up Roses. It's a two step stamping set (say that three times fast!) and it's so, so easy to use.

I stamped the roses using a mixture of Memento ink and Versamagic chalk ink and I'm pretty happy with the colour combos I managed to achieve this time!

I added a stamped sentiment from MFT - More Essential Sentiments and die cut everything using MFT - Blueprints 24

I added a couple lilac brads and smooshed everything together.

Job done. Thank you for stopping by today! :) xx

Come Fly with Me

A bright and breezy morning to you all!!

I awoke angered this morning, to the sound of what I thought was rain.
Turns out it was just my neighbours garden sprinkler. Hehe.

My mood can only improve from here on out! We'll see! :P

Before I get stuck into todays post, I wanna say a MASSIVE thank you to everyone who joined in with our anniversary challenge over at Passion for ProMarkers last week. You guys are the bestest! The winners are in for some absolute treats! Be sure to stop by the blog later on today to see if you've won!!

Today, we have a new challenge.

Our wonderful Marie wants you to


You can interpret this weeks theme any way you wish. Fairies, transport with wings, birds, bees. I can't wait to see what you guys come up with.

For my card, I used a fund raiser image from Simply Betty Stamps. You can find her awesome group over on FB! 

I coloured this cutie up in a time before I was really in the habit of writing my colour combos down, so I'm sorry, but I can't give you any details this time round! 

I can't wait to have a scroll through everyone's entries!

Now time for some inspiration? Yes!

I took the opportunity to print out my digi at 5" and go to town with the colouring (because I didn't need any extra room for a sentiment). Look at all of that hair! This image is one of the fundraisers over at Simply Betty Stamps (on Facebook). This lady is from the Elegant Beauty set. I adore her.

I coloured her up to match some subtle papers from First Edition and kept the embellishments pretty minimal (for me) with a simple doily and double bow with button!

I hope you likey, and it inspires you to create a card without a sentiment. These kinda creations are ideal to have in your stash, for at any given moment you can grab one, and add any sentiment you need to the inside. Quick and easy birthday card, or thank you card? Perfect!

That's all from me today. Be sure to stop by the Passion for ProMarkers blog and see what else my awesome teamies have in store for you today! I do hope you join us! xx

Blue Hair Envy

Goooood morning!

Time for a new challenge over at

Today, it was my turn to set the challenge theme.

I wanna see a colour combo of 


Here's what I came up with using INKED PRETTY from Saturated Canary.

I printed this cutie at about 4.5" and went to town with all of that hair of hers.
I used Black, Petrol Blue, Marine, Turquoise and Duck Egg for her hair.

I layered a piece of purple card behind the image panel and added it to a 4.25"x5.5" card. 

Of course, I couldn't leave it there and had to add dots of liquid pearls and stickles. 

Thank you for stopping by today, I hope you join in with the challenge.
