Stampin' Up! Hardwood meets Life in the Forest

Ah - ha! As promised a make today without an owl, it does still have a woodland feel to it though as I've used the fox from Life In the Forest stamp set:

Stampin_up_Nottingham

I've used Naturals White card for my base, it's a lovely sturdy card, heavier weight than our other card stock and has a great speckled effect on it too. Next I added a layer of Crumb Cake with Hardwood stamped in Early Espresso.

A few strips of Gingham Garden Designer Washi Tape and a sentiment from Perfect Pennants.
Next I stamped the fox in StazOn ink and painted him using an Aqua Brush with Cajun Craze re-inker and a little water. 

Added punched flowers and Candy Dots to match. Great with Stampin' Up! that all our products colour coordinate so well. Simples.

Stampin' Up! Owl Punch Notebooks

I promise one day this week I will blog something that doesn't have an owl in the design - or at least I promise to try!

To be fair it's half term here so I can't really craft this week, more about spending time with my fabulous boys and they have a play date arriving any minute now so I'm typing this up fast!

I made these decorated notebook a few weeks ago for a local craft fair, they are in their cello bags so I hope you can see the detail OK:

Stampin_Up

I used a mix of colours from scraps of left over Designer Papers and of course the beautiful Hardwood background stamp. I knew as soon as I saw it in the Stampin' Up! catalogue I would be getting lots of use out of it.

Stampin_Up

I used the Banner punch to make my bunting and yes, yes of course the Owl Builder Punch!
I've been asked for tutorials on a few of my latest makes so please watch this space over the next few days as I will be making them available.

Stampin' Up! Owl Punch Pop Up Box

Where is the weekend going? We're having lots of family fun for the Bank Holiday, yesterday we took the boys to Conkers, a woodland experience with lots of fun things to do and we're off out in a bit on another adventure too.

But you came here for the crafty stuff so.....I know, I know it's owls again but what can I do? Jelly loves owls!

Stampin_up

My second attempt at a pop up box card. They are so much easier to make than I imagined they would be. I hope Stampin' Up! never retire the Owl Builder Punch -  it's my favourite Stampin' Up!product EVER!

Want to see some close ups?

Stampin_Up

Ooh - yesterday on our adventures I got to see this beauty:

Stampin' Up! Hardwood meets Owl Builder Punch

Aah the start of a bank holiday weekend and indeed the chaos of half term is about to descend on me - bring it on!

If you follow me on Facebook you'll have seen my teaser project yesterday. Sometimes when I get stuck for inspiration I look on Pinterest and do you know I actually looked at my own stuff for a change. proved handy too as I've now re-vamped an old project.

I've made a card and a box featuring the Stampin' Up! Owl Builder Punch and the fabulous Hardwood background stamp.

Stampin_Up_Demonstrator

 Here's a close up of the card. the stamp set is Hello, Lovely which proper tickles me as it's how I greet most people!

Stampin' Up! Tidy Up Time

I'm stopping mid clear out to share with you what a mess The Room of Craft has got into recently:

Stampin_Up_Nottingham

I swear I had nothing to do with it - it just happened all by itself! So far I've attacked the side of the room you can't see on the photo. Actually when I say I've attacked it, I've been mainly on my hands and knees picking up 'rubbish' and 'recycling' - things in boxes and bags I thought at some point I would need when actually I don't! 

So I shall continue with operation 'Save The Room of Craft' for the rest of the day so that tomorrow I can get in here and get creating as we have a new Stampin' Up! catalogue coming soon and there's tons of stuff in the current catalogue I haven't used yet!!!

How often do you have to tidy up your craft space / room? Are you as bad as me? Please tell me I'm not alone?

Hugs

PS - it's a good job I'm not showing you a photo of my bedroom - next job is to tackle clean washing mountain!!!!

Stampin' Up! Flower Die Owl Cushions

Afternoon, it's been a while. Lot's of different things have been occupying my time of late and I'm hoping to get back to regular blogging and creating too.

My makes for today do use Stampin' Up! product but are some of my fabric creations. I have a bit of a thing for owls as most folks know and have designed and created some owl cushions starting with this one:

Stampin_Up

The Stampin' Up! products used are of course the gorgeous Fun Flowers Die and a button too. I think this is my favourite one so far. Next is a vision in very bright pink and oranges!

Stampin_Up

And last my spotty dotty purple creation. I'm loving working with these colours and it's so fab that I can use my Stampin' Up! ides and buttons on them too.

Stampin_Up

I have been doing a spot of paper crafting too and I even attended Stampin' Up! regional training over the weekend which was an absolute blast.

If you'd like to order or buy one of these cushions, please drop me an email at:
bluejellystampin@sky.com

You can of course also order Stampin' Up! products from me 24/7 by popping by my Stampin' Up! Shop.
