A bit of a late one today. Its been a week of disturbed sleep and 6am starts so blogging has been a little challenging. Sam is off giving Summer a bath so I thought I would sneak 5 minutes to share a couple of crafty projects with you.
The card below was inspired by this Pinterest beauty. I absolutely adore the white embossing on vellum contrasted with Crumb Cake. And I just love stamping this poinsettia image from Stampin' Up!'s Joyful Christmas stamp set.
And I know the card isn't perfectly stamped. I decided to share it with you today as a reminder to always check the edges of your stamps before stamping (or alternatively don't press too hard with your stamp like i did!). Unfortunately this card was blighted by the Versamark edge marks. But I love it all the same.
There is still plenty of time to order your Christmas crafting goodies in order to create your own gifts, cards and wrapping. You can order direct with me or through my online store direct to your door.
And don't forget to add the hostess code below for your chance to win the combined hostess freebies for the month:
My second crafty share I wanted to show you is a collection of Hostess Club thank yous I created to put in with the club orders last month.
I am usually a more colourful crafter leaning heavily towards the brights family. But I decided to use a Whisper White envelope and my Basic Black ink pad only to create this monochrome Flower Shop stamp set inspired collection.. It was finished with a flower punched with the Blossom punch from Modern Medley Designer Series Paper and the Thank You is from A Round Array. Inside I cut some Modern Medley paper samples and Basic Pearls for all my lovely hostesses. I will be starting a new virtual Hostess Club very soon so if you would like to join please get in touch to find out more on firstname.lastname@example.org.
And one last thing, there are only 4 more days to join my Stampin' Up! team for the bargain price of £25. I would love to welcome you to the Island Inkers and I have a fresh batch of notebooks and paper samplers waiting to welcome you on board to the Stampin' Up! family. Please see this post for more info on joining up, or get in touch directly and I'd be only too happy to chat you through what is involved.
Thank you for popping by today. I really appreciate you visiting my blog and love sharing my crafty projects with you.
