Sale a Bration International Blog Hop

Hello there :)
I am so excited I take part in a international Blog Hop today all about Sale a bration!! It's been a while since I did a blog hop and I am apologising now for bad photos, my big camera is poorly :( Anyway I focused on the Vellum for this hop there's a host of products you can earn for FREE with a £45 order and the white printed vellum is a fabulous choice.

This is the card I created, the leaves were cut form the fabulous Botanical Builder Framelits. The white leaves were coloured using the liquid Glitter magic Wink of Stella, sadly the photo makes it look quite dull but in real life is shimmery and sparkly <3 .="" nbsp="" p="">


 One of my favourite techniques using the Wink of Stella pen is to simply tap it over my project so that I get lots of sparkly splatters that create extra interest. More vellum layered over the punched out butterfly finishes off this rather unusual looking card.


 Thank you so much for visiting me today, I am so excited for you to go around the hop there is some yummy and fabulous projects... ENJOY !!!! 
Love n hugs Monica xx

You Can Create It UK

Hello there,
WOW we made it !! We survived the month of January!! Things can only get better now right?
Its time for our monthly challenge at You Can Create It and sadly it is also our last month. We had a blast this last year and loved being part of the team so it was a hard decision t pull out but I know I personally I will still play along with the gang in the future. The kit was pretty and pink this month so I went with designing a love themed card :)



I cut tiny strips of paper in contrasting design from the Love Blossoms Designer Paper Stack and used them as a border at the base of the card blank then simply cut two hearts using the amazing Blooming Hearts Thinlits dies one in the yummy Blushing Bride glimmer paper and one in whisper white. I layered the two then cut some small flowers to accents them. Have a look at the gorgeous glimmer paper !! just yummy :)


And to tie in with the shadowed look I stamped the sentiment twice by only inking once to achieve a similar look. Quick card but the sparkle WOW's !!!
 And here's Teri's project , my sweet partner in this. She created a lovely card with her kit, love the DSP layout on this :)


Yummy :)
