Simple but effective card

That's a ominous blog title! I case'd this card from a US Stampin' Up! publication. I love how simple but effective it is (hence the title!)

Colours are Basic Grey & Bashful Blue which compliment each other really well. The stamp set used is the Itty Bitty Banner set which I lined up using my trusty Stamp a ma jig.

The small punch out is from the Itty Bitty punch pack, it was fiddly but not too difficult to line them up.

Beyond Plaid

After a fab class yesterday I've managed to have a crafty play today too.

I bought the Beyond Plaid set from the Spring mini as I loved the patterns straight away. Though I wasn't sure what I was going to do with it!

I stamped the image in Wild Wasabi, Chocolate Chip & Bashful Blue then punched out with the 1 1/4"  punch to create the background. I used the Oval framelits to create the topper with the cute Itty Bitty butterfly punch & the left over bits of the stamping.

I'm really happy with how it's turned out & I can't wait to use the other patterns in the set.

Origami bookmark

We're currently on the second week of the Easter holidays & unfortunately my youngest has been poorly since he finished school, typical.

Just a little project today, I've created an Origami bookmark using some Pool Party designer series paper. It's surprisingly easy to make & I used the tutorial here. I've finished off with an Antique brad.
