Skipping With Spellbinders !

Hi! How are you today? I vaguely remember skipping at school- with 2 ropes and 2 people swinging them and we had to get in the middle and jump. I could cope with the one rope easily but two ropes sure was challenging. The best bit was joining in whilst the others were skipping so you didn’t end up with the rope lashing your ankles.

Onto today..and mushrooms! Before you think that my brain has gone mushy and I’m making overly tenuous links..it’s the mushrooms that are skipping. See….

Granted, this isn’t something you see every day. But why not?!- you know that song ‘if you go down to the woods today…’. It reminds me of Enid Blyton’s ‘The Faraway Tree’ as I reckon these little ‘fun-guys’ would be right at home in the Enchanted Wood.

Anyhow, this cute set is a stamp and die set from Spellbinders called ‘Getting All Mushy’ by Debi Adams and I love it. It’s simply coloured with alcohol markers and next up I reckon this set will create a mushroom pyramid really nicely!! ( as you do), or a bunch of them peeking out a pretend scrumpled paper bag ( like they’ve been rescued from the supermarket!)

I’m so thankful to Spellbinders for sending me this set to play with and have loved getting creative with the characters. The dies cut out the outside of the stamped hearts as well as an internal shape so it’s really versatile.

These mushrooms just make me happy looking at their little smiles!! What sort of scene would you create with a bunch of mushrooms??

See you soon!

‘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

Spellbinders ‘Let’s Bake’ Dies!

Hello! Hope you’re having a wonderful day!

It’s only a little while since I did any baking- I’ve managed to avoid doing too much over the school holidays as my kids have taken over that job!

I received some dies from Spellbinders and to my delight, one set is a baking themed one featuring 10 etched dies called ‘Let’s Bake – A Sweet Christmas’ by Sharyn Sowell.

This is what I cooked up 😉

Now you can see there’s not obviously any Christmas slant to it- but that’s the beauty of these- add a little holly or a Christmas patterned tablecloth and you have the perfect ‘from my home to yours’ or to adore tags with freshly baked goodies that you’ve rustled up yourself. Actually, after creating this, I had to top up my baking supplies ready for a session this evening!

If you haven’t ever used Spellbinders dies before, apart from their unique coloured gold dies, they’re a treat to use- they cut so cleanly and beautifully. I cut them out of white cardstock and then used my Nuvo AquaFlow pens to watercolour onto each piece. This easy type of scribbly watercolour suits me perfectly and I have loved creating with these dies.

I’ve other projects coming, so do keep an eye out for them.

The dies are available in the U.K. here and one US stockist with them in stock is Simon Says Stamp

I’d love to know what you think of the dies and how you can see yourself using them.

Thanks so much to Spellbinders for sending them- and I reckon I need to be off…there’s cakes that need baking!!
