Simply Sketched Saturday Challenge June

Independent Stampin' Up! demonstrator Jillian Selwood

Thank you for joining us for another Simply Sketched Saturday Challenge! We’re so excited to be sharing this hop with you.  The products used are all available in the current Annual, or seasonal, Stampin’ Up!® Catalogues*. Simply use the buttons at the bottom of the post to keep hopping!

The lovely Keren Howell of Tuppence Coloured designed our sketch this month and here it is:

I just love a clean and simple card and this design is crying out for just that. Here is my interpretation of the sketch.

Stampin' Up!, challenge, pop of pink, triple banner punch, melon mambo

I've used a base of thick Whisper White Cardstock with a piece of Designer Series Paper from the Pop of Pink collection. Basic black banner and Melon Mambo circle. All finished off with some rhinestones for a bit of bling. I thought the banner was looking a little sad so I scored some lines on it to give it a bit of character not something I have done before but I think it works.

Father's Day

Happy Father's Day to all those fabulous Dad's out there.

Here is the card I made for my Dad, he likes to wear a shirt and tie most of the time so I thought this was so appropriate for him.

I also made a couple of Father's Day cards to sell at Craft and Crumpet over at Accrington.

I've been watching quite a few people using watercolouring on their cards and I just love the effect.

Card Swap May

Independent Stampin' Up! demonstrator Jillian Selwood

The theme this month was insects, another difficult one for me. Fortunately I managed to find a bee on one of stamp sets so came up with this card.

I stamped the flowers onto Shimmery White cardstock and then using my aqua pens smudged the ink around the edges to give the colour inside the petals. I finished it off with the corner trio punch.

This is the beautiful card Jenny sent to me, I do love clean and simple cards and this one fits the bill perfectly. Thanks Jenny, I love it.

This month we had five ladies celebrating their birthdays so I made them each one of these cards using the brand new in colours: Dapper Denim, Emerald Envy, Peekaboo Peach, Sweet Sugarplum and Flirty Flamingo. I absolutely love all five of these new colours.

Thanks for visiting my blog today, until next time.

On the 1st June the brand new Stampin' Up! catalogue arrived. There are lots of new goodies and thankfully quite a lot of stamps, punches and dies are being carried over too.

I took part in a card challenge recently for New Arrivals. I don't have any baby stamps so it was off to Pinterest for inspiration.

I love this baby girl card, I think it's very pretty.

I just loved this idea of a baby wrapped in an envelope, special delivery! Well it appealed to my warped sense of humour!
