Daisy Delight - what's not to love?

With the imminent release of the new catalogue, and some birthdays to celebrate this week, I had to dip into a new stamp set and get it inky!

That set is Daisy Delight - a really fun stamp set with this amazing daisy as the main image. There is even a daisy punch to go with it! AND you can buy these 2 products together at a 10% discount (just £27.75 for the stamp set + the punch).  Not only that, but there are papers too!

Here is my finished card:

I just had to use some of the papers as they are fantastic designs. I created the middles of the flowers with a 1/2" circle punched from crushed curry cardstock, which I had run through the Gently Falling embossing folder.


 Here's a close up of the daisies. So quick and easy to put together. I love that Stampin' Up! have added new punches to the catalogue this year.

You can order this set from 1st June onwards. If you don't already have a Demonstrator and you are based in the UK, France, Germany, Austria or The Netherlands then contact me today for your own copy of the new catalogue.

Thanks for popping by - lots of new products to share, so do come back soon.

Bright Wishes - Wishing Well design

I treated everyone to a new stamp set this morning at #coffeeandcard, the Bright Wishes set which comes out next week on 1 June 2017.

It features the wishing well as the main image, with a selection of sentiments to go with it. I let everyone colour in their images with whatever medium they wanted - marker pens, blender pens with ink, aqua painters or watercolour pencils!



I am not sure the morning session's noise level has ever been that quiet. Very therapeutic colouring in!  In fact so relaxed, I forgot to take photographs at the end, so here are my two finished samples. The roof of the well has been decoupaged for a 3D effect.


Same again on Wednesday - hope I remember to take photos this time!
Thanks for stopping by today.

Is it a cluster? a flight? or a shimmer?

On researching something for this week's coffee and card, I discover that there does not seem to be one definitive answer to my question...What's the collective noun for the dragonfly?  Offerings included cluster, flight, shimmer and even a dazzle of Dragonflies. Take your pick!

Anyway, the subject of today's card was Dragonflies!

The ladies did a great job, using the Dragonfly Dreams stamp set, mixed with Definitely Dahlia.

Here are my sample cards

Finished cards - set 1.

Finished cards - set 2. I love all the colour combinations.

Coffee and card.... and birthday cake

The lovely Susan celebrated her birthday this week, and we were lucky enough at #coffeeandcard to be the recipients of her birthday cake, created by Hummingbirds Bistro on Wednesday.

Here was the cake we were treated to:

It was absolutely delicious.

After the cake came the crafting.... 
and there was a lovely selection of finished cards at Brackley. 
Here are some of them.

 Thanks for popping by today.
