My first #thedailymarker30day Challenge

Hello Crafty Friends! As many of you will know, the 8th edition of Kathy Racoosin’s colouring challenge starts today! I’m excited to be taking part in it for the very first time. As a mummy of two under 5’s, wife, friend and full-time professional, this is quite a commitment for me! So I hope I’ll be able to keep up. I’m pinning this post to the top of my blog during the month of September and I plan on sharing my daily coloured images with you here and on Instagram. Are you joining in too? Let me know! I’d love to see your colouring too…

Featured in the Sunny Studio Stamps blog!

Hello crafty friends! In today’s blog post I am showcasing two cards I created recently using a couple of my favourite Sunny Studio Stamps sets. I shared both of these cards on Instagram and Facebook, and they were subsequently spotted and featured in the Sunny Studio Stamps Blog. So I figured if Mendi liked them, maybe you will too! 

I created this first card using Sunny Studio Stamps “Magical Mermaids” Set. This card was for my best “mummy friend”, Aenny, whose birthday it was last Monday. I cut out the little stitched window using the Square Peek-a-Boo Window Die-namics die by My Favorite Things, stamped the sentiment in French using my favourite French sentiment set “Tampons Carterie” by Miaoups Creátions (site currently offline), and spelled my friend’s name with Concord & 9th’s awesome Perfectly Penned stamp set (I think this has been a huge seller and I can understand why!)

My second card was created using Sunny Studio Stamps “Perfect Popsicles” layering stamp set. I was going for that “masculine card” look which is sometimes hard to achieve and in the end I found this CAS card came together very easily. No surprise, since this stamp set is so versatile! You can’t tell on the card, but the little popsicle is actually an action wobbler. Which of these two cards is your favourite?! Do let me know in the comments section below!

That’s it for today. I hope you are having a sunny week, and if not, consider treating yourself to a bit of Sunny Studio Stamps retail therapy!

Bastel Traum Design Team Challenge #54

Hello Crafty Friends! And welcome back to another Bastel Traum Challenge video tutorial! Come and join us at the Bastel Traum Challenge blog for a chance to win a 15 CHF certificate to the Bastel Traum online shop (they ship worldwide and Tom, who owns it, is amazing at providing you with honest product advice!)

The subject of this month’s challenge isWater and so it is that I am taking you all under the sea with this super cute mermaid underwater scene!

To create today’s card I used two more adorable stamp sets from Sunny Studio Stamps’ latest release, called “Magical Mermaids” and “Oceans of Joy“, which I stamped and coloured with my alcohol-based Copic markers. I also created a front window for my underwater scene using my Essentials by Ellen “Diagonal Window” die and decorated it with a sea turtle-shell pattern using this super versatile (top layer) stencil from Honey Bee Stamps’ latest release.

For those of you who don’t know it, I love sea turtles. I don’t get to scuba dive very often and I’m not terribly adventurous (meaning a 15 metre / 50 feet dive is plenty enough for me!), but my husband and I enjoy it every time we get a chance. Last time we visited the stunning Mayan Riviera, in Mexico, we had the privilege of diving with wild sea turtles. They are some of the most beautiful creatures I have ever encountered, truly majestic, and I hope the people out there who hunt them and hurt them will realize that before it’s too late. In the mean time, my “water” (or rather, “under water”) card is my little tribute to this beautiful endangered species!

I hope you enjoy my video tutorial as much as I enjoyed creating it for you and that you’ll play along with the design team at the Bastel Traum Challenge blog for a chance to grow your craft supplies collection. Until next time!

Bastel Traum Design Team Challenge #53

Hi everyone! And welcome to the Bastel Traum Challenge #53, the subject of which is: 

Men and Boys

In last month’s challenge post you watched me create a home décor project for my baby girl’s 1st birthday. It just so happens that my son was born in the month of May (and so were his two best buddies!) So coming up with a project for this challenge was no challenge at all for me! 

To create this project I used the Pirate Pals Stamp Set from Sunny Studio Stamps along with my Silhouette Cameo 3. I started off by making a card for my soon to be 4-year-old boy and, thanks to my awesome Xyron Sticker Maker, he was able to join in the card-making fun by helping me create a couple of cards for his mates. 

My favourite card is the one on the bottom right, where he decided the ship’s captain had taken the other wee pirate prisoner by putting him in a barrel! Which is your favourite? Do let me know in the comments section below!

I hope you enjoy today’s video and that it inspires you to play along with us for a chance to win a 15 CHF certificate to the Bastel-Traum.ch online shop. Happy crafting mateys!

“Color Outside the Lines” Card {Sunny Studio Stamps}

Welcome back to another card-making blog post and video tutorial. I hope you’re having a bright and sunny day!

Like many of you, I follow Doodlebug Design on social media. When they introduced their Design Team members for 2017, DT Member Mendi Yoshikawa’s scrapbooking layout of a typewriter caught my attention. Upon reading the content on the typewritten page, I discovered Sunny Studio Stamps and was immediately captivated by their story and beautiful designs.

A few weeks ago I placed my first order with Sunny Studio Stamps and was really touched by Mendi’s handwritten “thank you” on my invoice (all the more so because she got the spelling of my name right!)

I always appreciate it when craft suppliers add a little human touch to an order placed online. This, along with the INFINITE possibilities this stamp and die set offer, inspired me to create today’s video. I hope you enjoy watching it as much as I enjoyed creating it.

Thanks for stopping by, I hope your day is filled with rainbows!!!
