It feels like Christmas was ages ago even though it wasn’t. My sleep pattern hasn’t quite adjusted back into work-mode and my mind is everywhere else! I’m sure I can blame my phone for that even though I try to spend as little time using it because I just find myself in zombie-mode scrolling down endless Facebook posts! That’s what I like about crafting it gathers my thoughts and I focus on one thing at a time- with no scrolling!
Monday evening is my craft night. Fiancé cooks dinner and all I have to do is pop down from the attic to eat and then I go back! It’s amazing! I know not everybody is as lucky and has many other things to do around the house but if you plan a project in advance you can easily make it happen in an hour. The hanging basket with succulents is adorable and I haven’t really gotten over the succulent craze a year ago where we had succulents everywhere.

This card is easy and quick to do. It’s so quick I made 5 cards in one hour! – not all with wonky sentiments! Haha 🙂
Get all the card cut first, then get the inks out, colour and assemble – DONE!

Flamingos and new Stampin’ Up! 2017-2019 in colours!

Pop of Paradise Pop of Paradise

Apologies for not having posted in a while. Life has been very busy. Planing a wedding (yes! my wedding! or ours.. but mine too!) and finishing off doing up a house (to sell).

In the meantime Stampin’ Up has launched their new catalogue, yay! PDF is available here or under the catalogue tab. Personally, I love the new catalogue and got a huge wish list!

I love the new in colours (please see photo display at bottom of the post!) and had a quick play with them and the new stamp set Pop of Paradise which has flamingos of course. Flamingos are very popular at the moment. Copper has been popular in interior decorating for a long time in Britain and Scandinavia and has finally found its way into crafting. Copper embossing is the way to go.

I made the two cards by using following items:

I did the stamping on scrap whisper white card stock and cut out leaves, flamingo and banner with scissors. The watercolour background is very easy to make, just pick up colour from ink pad with aqua painter and apply to watercolour paper with lots of water. I like adding drops of colour to the wet paper for a splash of extra colour. Takes a bit of time to dry or you can cheat and gently dry it with heating gun.

If you haven’t seen the new colours please take a look at them right here 🙂 From left to right: Tranquil Tide, Lemon Lime Twist, Powder Pink, Berry Burst and Fresh Fig.
Also if you havent seen; Helen Read has made a list of awesome colour combinations for the new in colours on Pinterest.
