Tip Top Taupe

Hello all, hope you've had chance to enjoy the sunshine again today, it's been very hot here.

I've now received all my On Stage Local display samples back so I thought I would show you them together. My ' mission ' was to showcase the old In Colours ( yep, I was gutted not to get the new ones lol ! ) and we had to make a variety of projects predominantly that colour.

This was particularly difficult for me - I like my colour combos - and using one main colour was a lot more challenging than it initially sounds. Anyway, here's what I came up with for Tip Top Taupe....

A scrapbook page of my two girls and an anniversary card with Timeless Love.

Isn't that die cut heart just so pretty ? My faux book you've seen before.

A close up of the scrapbook page....yes, it is that flower from Fabulous Flora again ! And look at those cute frilly socks - my now teenagers would just roll their eyes !

And so all of them together....

Back soon with another colour x

Christmas Baby Bear

Hello there, did you enjoy the Jems Blog Hop yesterday ? Some great ideas and really it showcased the new In Colours.

Firstly a little background info about today's card. On Friday afternoon I was home alone and as the weather was unexpectedly hot I decided to be self indulgent and sunbathe in the garden. Despite the glorious weather and wearing my shorts, I suddenly had an idea for a card....but a Christmas card. Initially, I thought I must remember that for a few months time, but, after about 5 minutes I decided I NEEDED to make it - now ! Does that ever happen to you lol ?

After I'd made it I shared it with my team mates and then posted it on a Demonstrator Facebook group. The response was overwhelming, I got over 540 likes and some lovely comments ! In fact I put something in the microwave for 3 minutes and when I came back I had notifications of 50 more likes !
So I thought I'd better share with you too..... Get ready , he is sooo cute.....

See, told you- isn't he just so sweet ?

 If you haven't got the Baby Bear set you can order him at and I have 'dressed' him with items from the equally cute Snow Place Christmas stamp set. The sentiment and accessories are also from a new Christmas set called Peace this Christmas. I also have lots of other ideas for him, so expect lots more bear designs.

I shall be making a batch of Christmas bears in the sunshine again today. Hope you like him x

June Jems Blog Hop

Hello and welcome to the 2nd Jems Blog Hop, we had so much fun last time , we're doing it all again !

This time the theme is the new Stampin Up In Colours.

I love playing around with colour combinations and like how the colours change the mood of a project. For today's Hop I decided to make a card for each of the 5 new In Colours but to keep the other colours the same. So I decided that Mint Macaron and Tip Top Taupe would work with each of the colours, what do you think ?

The first one is Flirty Flamingo......

The butterfly has been stamped with a gorgeous flower from the new hostess set Fabulous Flora.

Next on to Emerald Envy.......

And on to Peekaboo Peach....

And Dapper Denim......

And finally, and probably my favourite version of this particular card, Sweet Sugarplum...

And a picture of all of them together......

Which one is your favourite ?

Here are the links to the rest of the Jem's projects in the Hop


Happy Hopping and please pop back again soon x
