Julie Nutting meets WMS Eat cake…


Hope your weekend is going great.

Popping in to share the latest birthday card.

Scrapbook boutique – February Mood Board here

Seize the Birthday here

Here is my card

21st chanelle 2 (388x640)

I stamped the Mixed media doll from Julie Nutting on xpress card stock and coloured with alcohol markers. I used my spica pens in gold, black and red to add some glitter then when that wasn’t the effect I wanted I added a load of wink of stella. I mounted onto red and gold cardstock from my stash.  I finished with some sequins and the sentiment from WMS Eat cake stamped with versamark and gold embossed then die cut from SU tags and labels framelits. Note the  card base size is 22 cm x 10.5 cm.

Here is another pic which shows the sparkle a little more.

This card is for a 21st in a few weeks.

Happy Birthday Ms A…


Yes it is another birthday in my house today.

Ms A turned 10.

Happy Birthday

This is her birthday card

Ms A birthday card

I used Hero Arts Cupcake and Waltzing Mouse Eat cake stamp sets to create the card. The cup cake is coloured with alcohol markers before adding some kindy glitz and glossy accents.  Not entirely happy with the frosting.  I went a little overboard with the glossy accents and it spread a little just like the cupcake filling below! I die cut the “10” from Memory Box Classic numbers die set a few times and added more glossy accents. The sentiment is from the same waltzing mouse set. The patterned paper and cardstock are SU.

Pajama Party…

Waltzing Mouse Stamps are having a Pajama Party this weekend. Last week I received my first order of their stamps so I’m joining in. Warning this is pic heavy!


Challenge 1 – Knot or twine


I have used Half Pint Heroines stamped onto various papers including Kaisercraft La Di Da Collection 6″ paper pad and scrap papers and fussy cut.  I masked the clouds and sponged on some colour. I then used glitter for the clouds – it needed a bit of sparkle! The sentiment is from Half Pint Heros and is punched using Stampin UP! Modern Label punch. I also used Calypso coral cardstock. This challenge needed a knot or twine. I used some twine from the Rusty Rose on the hot air balloon.

Challenge 2 – Nautical


I used Half heros coloured with alcohol markers. I made the life buoy using 1 3/4″ and 1 1/8″ circle punches and scraps of cardstock.  I added twine from Hemptique which is threaded through a button from my stash.

Challenge 3 – Colour Challenge



I used stamps from Teeny Trees stamped in Stampin UP! Basic Black, Pacific Point, Smoky Slate, Basic Gray and Cherry Cobbler. The mount cardstock is pacific point.

Challenge 4 – Oldest stamp or oldest WMS


I think my oldest stamp is a Stampin UP! wood mount seeing spots. I still use it sometimes but seeing in this challenge I could opt to use my oldest WMS and seeing I only just got mine I had to ink up another set. For this card I used Eat Cake with silver and white embossing powder some punched flowers (punch brand unknown), some rhinestones and Pacific point ink and cardstock.

Another pic – bit hard to get a pic of the white embossing.


Enjoy the rest of your weekend and thanks for stopping.
