Using Some Scraps

So from my last card I had some more Pigment Sprinkles pieces of card left and the Broadway Birthday set on my desk.  When I did the backgrounds I cleaned up some excess with strips of Whisper  White I had laying about which made some interesting strips.  Here is what I have used a few of those bits for.


Here is what I have used:
Stamps: Broadway Birthday
Card/Paper: Whisper White, Watercolour Paper, Crumb Cake
Ink: Memento Black
Tools: Pigment Sprinkles, Broadway Lights Framelits
Embellishments: Sprinkles Embellishments (retired)

Don't forget this set and framelits is retiring so if you NEED IT get in quick!

Happy crafting,

Messy Fun!

So if anyone saw my Instagram or Facebook story the other day you would see I was having fun with the Pigment Sprinkles.  Hot tip - if you are messy like me and don't want multi-coloured hands for days wear gloves lol.  I made a few backgrounds and here is what I have done with one of them.


 So once my background had dried I cut out the wish using the Broadway Lights dies.  Keep the cut out bit and make another card!


Waste not want not hey!

Here is what I used: 
Stamps: Broadway Birthday, Well Said
Card/Paper: Whisper White, Basic Black, Watercolour Paper, 
Ink: Granny Apple Green, Memento Black
Tools: Broadway Lights Dies, Pigment Sprinkles
Embellishments: Sequin Stars from my stash.  

These are bright and fun just the thing to brighten up a cold and wet day here in Melbourne!

Happy crafting,

What To Do With Left Overs

No not the left overs in the fridge!  Those scraps on your craft desk from all those projects.  All that creating with the Peaceful Poppies Suite left me with a desk full of scraps.  The perfect time to try out the Scrappy Strip Technique (by Bruno Bertucci).  You can watch his video here.


So super easy but effective and uses up all those scraps!

Here is what I have used:
Stamps: Peaceful Moments
Card/Paper: Basic Black, Peaceful Poppies DSP
Ink: Versamark
Tools: White Embossing Powder, Heat Tool, Trimmer
Embellishments: Peaceful Poppies Elements (for the sentiment tag)

What's that I hear you say? She white embossed her sentiment.  Something different lol.

Its my current groove!

Hope you are having a crafty day, its freezing here in Melbourne so hiding in the craft room with the heater on!

More Poppies!

So are you sick of them yet?  LOL.  I might be a bit biased to the Poppy as that is my granddaughters name!  Made another one with this beautiful suite.


I think this is my go to style.  I love white space and a cluster in the bottom right corner.  I do it a lot lol. 

Here is what I have used:

Stamps: Beauty Abounds (sentiment), Painted Poppies
Card/Paper: Whisper White, Basic Black
Ink: Poppy Parade, Versamark
Tools: White Embossing Powder, Heat Gun, Painted Labels Dies
Embellishments: Peaceful Poppies Elements, Peaceful Poppies Sequins, Whisper White 1/4" Crinkled Seam Binding Ribbon

Of course I've done my sentiment in white embossing powder on the black again!  The die has a centre inside of it when you cut it out but I wanted it open so just punched it out with my 2" circle punch.  

Thanks for popping by, hope you are getting your crafty on!
