A box full......

Every tool needs a tool box so here's my take on a tool box filled with tools from the nailed it stamp set. The card is a simple center stepper card decorated with pattern paper from the Urban District papers from Stampin' Up! The tools and nuts and screws were die cut using the Frame It framlits from Stampi' up! no fussy cutting for this card !!!

Metallic hexagons...

Today's Samples not only feature the nailed it stamps but also the amazing dimensional embossing folder from Stampin' up! called Hexagons Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. Pictures don't really show quite how dimensional it is! 
Again the samples are in the vibrant bold colours and the more subtle options.

Nailed It.....

Don't you just love the names companies come up with for products etc?...This weeks inspiration will be featuring a stamp set from Stampin' Up! called Nailed It and it just fit's the bill soooo well! Here is  a picture showing the stamps.

I think this set lends its self to boys of all ages from 2 to 99 and maybe even the girl too?
So to start off the week here's a card for the younger age or young at heart. I've used bright colour ways for the children and more grown up shades for the ehhh more grown up children!

Foil Card - Day 4
Hello. For my last project this week I have played with Whisper White, Copper Foil
and a little splash of Basic Black Ink.


I made the box first and decided that it will be perfect as a gift box for a wedding or Anniversary.

The card was next and I kept it in simple white and mats of copper foil.


I embossed the whole of the card base with Falling Petals TIEF to add dimension to the 
The messages on the card are from Better Together stamp set,


The gift box is from the Window Box Thinlits Dies.

The message on the box is from  the co-ordinating stamp set
to the Thinlits called Window Shopping.

I love the way that the box looks in the Copper Foil

Foil Card - Day 3
Today's card colour was decided by my 8 year old grandson Jayden.
 I couldn't decide on a colour to use so he chose one.

Tempting Turquoise, Whisper White and Gold Foiled card.

I die cut the Flourish and edge pieces in the gold and embossed the White card with 
Sparkle Textured Impressions Embossing Folder.

The messages used were from Flourishing Phrases stamp set.

Today should be Foil card day 3 projects but I must apologise.
Yesterday was my birthday and I was kept very busy by my
 amazing friends and family well into the night!
However, some of the beautiful cards that I received were made by my Stampin' Up! 
friends. So I thought I would show some of them to you.

This first card was made by Cary. It's absolutely beautiful because as usual she make very 
creative cards etc. She used Falling Flowers stamp set and the Large Letter Framelits to make this.

 I've shown you the inside because of how lovely Cary has decorated it. 

The rest of the cards were made by some of our lovely ladies who join us in our classes.
This card was using the Beautiful You stamp set made by Debbie.

The next was made using Big Day stamp set and made by Debs.

This one is from Lizzie and made using Flower Shop stamp set and the Pansy punch.

This last card was made by Kate and she used the Birthday Blast stamp set and Star Blast Edgelits.

I consider myself to be a very lucky person to have such talented friends.
Thank you to everyone for the birthday wishes, xxx

Foiled Card - Day 2

Today's card has far less foil on than yesterdays.
When I cut down foiled sheets I usually keep the strips and 
so I decided to use them as an accent on this card.

This card is made using the Very Vanilla cardstock and the Washi Tape from the Urban Underground range of products, and once again the stamp set Urban District.

This time, I stamped the letters individually and cut them out using a craft knife and scissors. 
Then mounted them onto Delightful Dijon cardstock

The other accent on this card is a few of the embellishments from the same range Urban Underground.
There are screw heads, stars and nuts as above. 

There are the most mazing phrases in this stamp set.
