The challenge for this fortnight at The Male Room is to make a masculine project using Fruit!

I have to admit that I am struggling to find some creativity at the moment, possibly because a large portion of my stamping stash is still packed inside those big brown boxes.  So I had to find something to do with fruit, somewhere……

I have used some cards from one of my Project Life kits which I have layered, stamped on and done some faux stitching around the edges of both card layers.  It ended up being a pretty simple card to make and I quite like the apple.
Hope you will find some “fruity” inspiration from the rest of the Design Team, and make sure you share your projects with us.
Happy stamping!

Message In The Bottle

Another “Under Water” card today, for the challenge at The Male Room.
I like this challenge, this one had me thinking of all sorts of things to try out!  For my card today, I have used a Digital image from Make It Crafty, of a message in a bottle.

The image has been coloured using Copic markers, and then to make it look more like it was underwater, I have layered over the top, an Acetate Photo Filter Frame from the Project Life “Let’s Get Away” Accessory Pack. The photo filter adds that blue, green, yellow colour over the colouring and gives it a little more depth and interest.
Behind the main image, I have stamped some tiny fish and starfish (which are a little difficult to see in the photo), using the Stampin’ Up! Sea Street stamp set.

Happy stamping!

Just Add Ink Challenge

A quick post today to show the card I have made for this week’s Just Add Ink challenge.
My card again uses lots of new goodies from the soon-t0-be released new catalogue, but I am having so much fun playing with new stuff that I just can’t help myself! 🙂


The card uses a Project Life card which I have stamped the image onto, then done some paper piercing around the arrow to highlight it, and the cute bicycle image is from the new hostess stamp set Life’s Adventure.
Happy stamping!

Create with Connie and Mary Colour Challenge

I thought the colour challenge from Create with Connie and Mary (CCMC308) would really be a challenge for me, they are definitely not colours I would normally put together.  However, since it’s the middle of winter here, and I like a challenge, I decided to have a go and create something bright and cheery.
Here are the colours:

I also thought I would like to use some of the new Project Life products which will be available when the new catalogue goes live on the 1st July.  Just one of the many things I love about being a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator is being able to get these products in advance to show you what can be done with them.


Becky Higgins, the founder of Project Life, has now partnered with Stampin’ Up! to bring authentic Project Life products to you in Stampin’ Up! exclusive colours and designs.
Don’t know what Project Life is? Project Life was developed as a quick and easy way of keeping memories and photos alive, without the time involved with traditional scrapbooking, it’s simple, easy and fast and keeps your photos organised.
Today I have made a card with some of the Project Life products, no stamping on this card!  I will be making up some pages using Project Life to share with you as well.  As a homeschooling family, I find Project Life the ideal way of keeping records of the things we have been doing.

Hope you are enjoying your weekend.
Happy stamping!
