‘Special Delivery’ From Spellbinders

Hello ! Hope you’re having an amazing day.

Spellbinders kindly sent me some gorgeous stamp and matching die sets. One of these is called ‘New Arrival’ (SDS-122), and is perfect for all baby congratulations cards and handmade gifts.



This set is available from Simon Says Stamp. The set is designed by Debi Adams and every time I use red rubber sets (these are red rubber cling stamps) I remember just how good and crisp the images are and how much I should use them more!


I’ve made a very simple shaker card and added some confetti bits from Nuvo Confetti and glitter collection. I’ve coloured the images using alcohol markers plus a blender pen. Adding a little watercolour using Nuvo AquaFlow pens adds some detailing around the clouds and stops it looking too stark. After all, babies are sweet and cuddly so cards should exude warmth!

Do look out for more Spellbinders products, I am really loving using them!

See you soon with another blog post using another Spellbinders set

Last Winnie & Walter Challenge

Hi! Wow- isn’t it freezing! I’ve been busy knitting..more on that later but today I’m popping in with my last creation for the Birthday Bash

I’d originally designed it with Shay’s ‘One’ Challenge in mind- and then I remembered there was also a Shaker Challenge. This is perfect for that challenge. Had I realised there was a shaker challenge WHILST I was making it, I’d have made far more colourful!
As it is- the whole card is acetate and was great fun to make. What is hard to see because its clear is that there is snow stamped all over the card- I’ve used the sequin stamp from the Big, Bang Bling set as snow with White Stazon to stamp it with.

The trees are a fabulous cut file from Winnie & Walter here & apart from the fact that my Silhouette blade is now getting a little blunt, it’s a great image. I’ve stamped out the words from The Big, The Bold & You and added some Glossy Accents to give shine and depth.
You’ve still time to join in- do play along- I’ve loved creating for the challenges. I think you’ll agree that I’ve made me two solitary stamp sets go a long way!

See you tomorrow with some ‘moosey-action’
