Stampin' Up

Trimming the Town

I do love a good blend pen for colouring. I like that you can get a range of colours my using the coordinating pairs or a complimentary colour. You can also get a smooth colour when using a single pen – no lines or blotches!

The Coming Home stamp set is a brilliant choice if you like to stay between the lines (and the matching paper will blow your socks off!). Its simple design is great choice if you are new to colouring in.

For this project I was inspired to move away from card making and start thinking about Christmas (yes it’s still October…)

I used a 12″ box frame and  elements from the stamp set to make this singe sheet of paper into a true Christmas scene, before finishing it off with the “Joy dies” in coordinating colours of Pool Party and Poppy Parade.


I’m really pleased with how it turned out. I can’t wait to see what’s coming with the rest of the paper pack!

Purr-fect Pets

Cats Vs Dogs is a common argument, but what if you like both? The Pampered Pets Stamp Set from Stampin’ Up! is what you need.

In my last post I featured the dogs, so now it’s feline time.

I’ve used Real Red as my base colour which fits in ‘purrfectly’ with the coordinating Playful Pets designer speciality paper.

Have you spotted the little mouse on the background – it’s these little touches that make this a great set!

A touch of colour using the Crumb Cake Blends finishes off this cat. Time for a quick catnap before the next card making session!
