Sunflower Popcorn

I'm giving you a sneeky peek into my next workshop.
My lovely ladies are going to be watercolouring lots of lovely bears, which I will be previewing over the next few days, hope you'll like him as much as I do!

Meet Popcorn the Bear, from Crafters Companion, isn't he cute! He's a range of 12 stamp sets & 3 CD Roms.

I used:
Lemon pearlescent card blank
Watercolour paper
Sunflower backing paper from the Popcorn bear Flowers CD Rom which I've cut into an oblong panel then cut around the flowers to add interest
Popcorn Bear Thanks a Bunch stamp set
Stampin' Up! inks in Basic Grey,Close to Cocoa, More Mustard & So Saffron

Thanks for looking!

Teachers' Pet!

I did these items for Abi's Funky Friday Cchallenge #26 of Chocolate Chip, Close to Cocoa, Barely Banana & Very Vanilla.
I did a bookmark, fridge magnet, some wrapped chocolate and a card. I also did a tag on ribbon to tie up the bundle.

I used:
Forest Friends stamp set
Watercolour Vine roller
Soft Summer stamp set (for the greeting)
Close to Cocoa & Barely Banana ink
Chocolate Chip, Close to Cocoa, Barely Banana & Very Vanilla cardstock
Scallop Edge, Scallop Circle, 1 3/8" Circle, Scallop Oval & Oval punches

I love the Forest Friends stamp set, it fitted perfectly for my teacher theme.

Thanks for looking!

So Swirly Christmas

Hi, Welcome to my blog!!
I hope it gives you some ideas and inspiration.

I know I'm early but when you have loads of cards to make, best start early!
The colour combination is Night of Navy and Very Vanilla.
I used stampin' up's Season of Joy stamp set for the tree and the greeting, I love the set as there are so many options available. I'm sure I'll be using it for most of my christmas cards.
I used the So Swirly roller for the border, it's so easy to get fantastic borders with very little effort.
I finally used a few gems for a little bit of sparkle, couldn't resist!

Thanks for stopping by!
