I am sharing a bit of a sneak peek today of a new product which will be available from 1st Feb 2022.
The new Natural Tone Stampin’ Blends!

These will be fantastic for skin tones as well as for animals and, well…. just a great addition to current collection of colours.
They are available as a preorder for demonstrators right now, so if you are interested in getting these now and would like to get a minimum of 20% off your craft purchases, contact me, or you can join here.

Vintage Friendly Hello

As I am sure you can tell, I just love the Friendly Hello Sale-a-Bration stamp set (available 4th January 2022), I am also loving the Heart and Home Suite (also available 4th January from the new Mini Catalogue) – yes, there is a lot to look forward to with all the gorgeous new goodies coming soon.

I made this card during my regular Wednesday morning Facebook Live, I have to admit though, I was very tired and probably sounded it. However I think the card turned out ok. This is a style I love to make, I know it’s not everyone’s cup of tea but it is easy enough to adjust it to be less “fussy” and appeal to a wider range of people.
The gorgeous flowers from the Friendly Hello set, have been stamped in Basic Gray and then coloured with Pale Papaya ink and Blender Pens. And that gorgeous Basic Gray doily is part of the Heart and Home suite.

I’m not sure about you, but I am looking forward to some holiday time and some down time to connect with some creativity and have a play with some new products and ideas.
Happy stamping!

Stampin’ Up! Friendly Hello

My card today uses the Stampin’ Up! Friendly Hello stamp set, one that you may not have seen yet. It is a brand new one, available from the 4th January 2022, along with the pretty Friendly Hello Designer Series Paper.



I fell in love this with gorgeous little bird as soon as I saw it, and am so grateful that I am able to earn free goodies from Stampin’ Up! just for choosing to be a demonstrator and share what I love doing. And of course, it’s always fun to receive free things, and this is one that you can also receive for free during this coming January/February Sale-a-Bration.

Cute little birdie is coloured using the Stampin’ Up! Watercolour pencils, but with no water involved, just coloured with the pencils.
Isn’t this just the most gorgeous image?
I have also stamped on the inside of the card with a smaller image from the same set, also coloured with the pencils.

While this one is only available to demonstrators prior to the 4th January, if you really want it, you could join my Stampin’ Up! family of demonstrators, with all the benefits that go along with that.
Of course there are always the items that are on the Last Chance List and in the Clearance Rack to craft with until January, and I will be posting up some projects using those soon.
Happy stamping!

Pattie’s Creations Challenge 112

Theme – Make a Splash: Water MUST be part of your Image!
For this month’s challenge with Pattie’s Creations I have chosen Pattie’s wonderful Mallards image.

I just loved colouring this image, and of course have used my Copic Markers.

I decided to keep the card very clean and simple so that the image was the highlight of the card, and also decided to leave it blank without a sentiment, although it could be used for just about any type of card.
I hope you will join in the fun this month, create something with a water theme, or just that has some water somewhere, and share it with us at Pattie’s Creations in July.
Happy Stamping!
Chris
