Sunny Challenges and Creations we had to use Marina Mist and place any shape on the card front. I thought that I would do another card for the challenge (what so soon?) because I really started to get into the swing of Marina Mist!My base was of Sahara Sand, and I then 'wheeled' a strip of Marina Mist and Very Vanilla Card stock with the Jumbo Wheel Friendly Words. I added a length of the Chantilly Crochet Trim across the centre and attached a flower that I made by punching out 3 Fancy Flower Shapes, and 2 of the small leaves from the Sizzix Die Island Floral. I distressed all the shapes and seperated them before assembling them. I used a small yellow button from the Icecream Parlour Button collection and tied it off with Hemp twine. The sentiment is from the age old favourite Sincere Salutations , which I stamped off in Black and punched out using the decorative label punch. I hope you like my card, it was quick and easy to do and came together very quickly. Would love to hear what you think. Bye for now

Sunny Challenges and Creations this week. This time I chose to use Garden Green for my card base, I topped that with Confetti Cream and the panels were cut from Holly Jolly DSP that I had on hand and is just about to retire. Using the Big Shot I cut a scallop oval in Garden Green and a medium oval in Confetti Cream which I ran through the Big Shot once again this time inside the Square Lattice embossing folder, because as you remember at least one embossing folder was to be used. The image I stamped twice in Garden Green and coloured the star yellow is from the soon to be retired Christmas Classics stamp set. One of the images I cut up in sections and layered it onto the bottom one with dimensionals just to give it a bit of a lift. The sentiment is from Heard from the Heart, and on the inside of the card on Very Vanilla Card stock I stamped the verse from Snow Swirled along with a snowflake in the top right hand corner. The bow is Very Vanilla Satin Ribbon and the bow was placed in the centre of the top portion of the card to give it a 'bauble look'.It seems a bit sad to be saying goodbye to some of your favourite stamp sets, they are a little like comfy slippers really, they are always there when you wnat them. Nevermind on the 1st of September we will have a whole lot more new favourites that we will automatically reach for!

Sunny Challenges and Creations Challenge for this week. I pulled out some Regal Rose cardstock, which I dont seem to use often enough, layered it with Whisper White which I had passed through the Big Shot using the Petals a Plenty embossing folder. I then matted some Whisper White onto another piece of Regal Rose and fed each corner into the Decorative Label Punch to make the corner shapes that I achieved here. A Strip of matching cardstock had a piece of white grossgrain ribbon across its length and attached to the main body of the card. The sentiment was stamped and the large oval punch was used to shape it. The fox was stamped in Regal Rose once again and placed on dimensionals. She is so cute, she looks like she is batting her eyes at any unsuspecting little boy fox! I have had fun using this set this week and hope that you have liked what I have done. Bye for now
Sunny Challenges and Creations I used a Whisper White card base, and using Bashful Blue Ink and the standard size Stampin' around wheel with cup cakes on it, then topped it with Bashful Blue card stock and added a scallop edge from the Tasteful Trim Die, I then ran a piece of Whisper White through the Big Shot using the Square Lattice embossing folder and matted that onto a piece of Tempting Turquoise and placed the turtles using dimensionals. For some reason this card puts me in mind of "snips and snails and puppy dog tails"! I had fun making this card and I hope you like it too!

Sunny Challenges and Creations we are using the stamp set Fox and Friends and the sketch for this challenge was done by Vicki. As I said in an earlier post it really had me thinking, and now I seem to have gotten into the 'groove' with set and will share with you over the next couple of days some more of my creations using this lovely set. The card base is Tempting Turquise and that has been layered with Whisper white of which I attached four of the lions from the stamp set that were stamped in More Mustard and that was then run through the Big Shot using the Square Lattice embossing folder. A smaller mat of the Tempting Turquoise topped with Whisper White was adhered to the embossed layer and then I had cut out a giraffe that was stamped in Cajun Craze and he was placed using dimensionals. You cant see it very well in this picture but I placed a basic rhinestone for the giraffe's eye. The card was finished off by placing a strip of More Mustard Cardstock across the page which had 1/8" White Taffeta Ribbon attached to it. This is such a pretty set and I dont know why I hadnt had ink to it before this :( I do hope you like it and I would love to know what you think of it.

Sunny Challenges and I thought that I would post another of my creations that I made for this week. We had to work with Inspired by Nature and it is such a lovely set and it is very 'giving' in as much that there are so many components to work with. I decided this time not to be so structured and to let a bit of whimsy play a part. I am so pleased with the end result and I hope you like it too! My base is Very Vanilla, which I topped with a piece of Soft Suede cardstock. I ran this through the Big Shot using the Tulips border embossing folder. The Regal Rose I ran through the Big Shot as well this time using the Perfect Polka Dots embossing folder. I used Soft Suede ink to stamp the grasses on Very Vanilla, and the flowers are the smallest daisy, which were coloured using the Stamp n Write Markers in Real Rose, Melon Mambo, So Saffron, and Soft Suede. Five flowers were inked and stamped then cut out, and then attached to the cardstock randomly using my faithful Anywhere Glue Stick. This layer was then run through the Big Shot too, this time using the Squeare Lattice embossing folder. Before attaching this layer to the Baja Breeze mat I coloured some 1/8" taffeta ribbon with Regal Rose ink and tied it around the botton. It was then assembled, dimensionals were added to the back and it was all attached to the main body of the card. I hope you like what I have done, Iwould love to know what you think. Bye for now.....
