A Circle Sentiment - Crimson Cloud

Hello and welcome :) 
Thanks for popping by.
Today's post is my DT post for

I went with a nice clean and simple card to make it all about the sentiment stamps I used.
I took a 5 x 5 blank card some black card and green glitter docrafts card and punched a circle out of them.
Then using the white punched out circle I stamped the amazing black circle sentiment using a black versafine ink pad and then stuck it on the inside of the card, I then stamped the You are truly sentiment on the front under the open circle and added some black polka dot ribbon from my ever growing stash (opsey) lol......
What a fab set of sentiments and its great that you can use your circle punches and die's with them and with the added bonus of the normal sentiments too.

What a perfect stamp set for the school holidays as every little girl would just love to colour her and big girls ;) I only know that because I adore this set.
Look at all those stamps you get, there is so many things you can do with this stamp set as you can see from my inspiration I have cut round a few of the butterflies to make them stand out from the card, i've also stamped and glittered and then cut out the flowers, the small flowers in the flower border layer up perfectly onto the large single flower, you could also layer the butterflies too. I have stamped the butterflies and glittered them and then put them onto some thick acetate so the look like they are fluttering in mid air.

Mr & Mrs

Hello to you today Thanks for popping by.
I just thought I would share with you a few makes that I was asked to make for my Mother-in-Laws Craft Shop on Llandudno Pier in North Wales using some of the products in the shop.
I was asked for some simple Wedding & Anniversary cards.

The Happy Anniversary sentiment is from Visible Image Stamps. Pop over to their Website to see the array of top quality stamps at prices to suit every Crafters pocket or Visit Pier Crafts on Llandudno's Pier  where you will find a collection of this fine stamps.

The Hearts stamp is from Stamps by Chloe which you will also find stocked at Pier Crafts on Llanduno Pier.

I have used Metallic sparkling Silver Wow Embossing Powders on these cards which you will also find  these in the shop, they really are the best embossing powders i've used and there is an amazing colour range.
You will also find Hobby House gems & pearls, quickie glue pens, diamond sparkles, a wide range of ink pads, glues, wild rose stamps, Hunkydory, Spellbinders, Spectrum Noirs. It really is a little cave of goodies with a personal touch and when I have a little spare time I love hanging out there and YEY I get to play with all the goodies well come on it would be rude of me not too ;). lol
