Fancy Folds Blog Hop





Hello there, I hope you are enjoying some of the nice weather we have been having here in the UK and if you're in Aus and you're reading this with a pair of warm socks on and a hot cocoa I hope you are enjoying the hot cocoa :) 
Its fancy fold blog hope time again and this month we are playing and making Tunnel Cards. Yet again I am ashamed to admit that I have never in my years of crafting tried one of these cards but I had great fun coming up with something special for a special birthday :) 




I am using up the yummy Birthday Bouquet designer paper and decided to combine the Happy Birthday Everyone set with the Numbers of Years . The Lots of Labels framelits are one of my favourite layering shapes we do as they are so easy to make a fun statement on your projects.   And here'e the close up



The colours are, Crumb Cake, Watermelon Wonder, Hello Honey a touch of Pool Party and some Soft Suede. 
Then there's the  inside !!!! Lovely fun surprise for the recipient and the 21 again !! is sure to bring a smile to the sweet recipient's face.



Thank you for visiting me today now hop along to my friend's blog post Tanja Kolar and the other girls. Make sure you live some sprinkles of love via a comment if you visit them <3 nbsp="" p="">
Have a fabulous rest of the day, hugs Monica xx

Birthday Blooms Stampin

Hello there,
I hope this finds you well??? As the retirement carries on until the end of May I have mad a decision to blog about all of these projects I have ready to share so that you get a chance to see them as well. Today I am sharing a card I made with the lovely set Birthday Blooms .

I really like this popular set but then again I love flower sets and this one is particularly pretty. I have stamped the flower head in versamark onto watercolour paper and embossed it in white powder. Then using my aqua brush and ink pads I set about colouring it in.  
The card base is in Pool Party and the papers are matching to this set and called Birthday Bouquet
I cut and layered the flower head over a white mat that I singed with a bit of pool party ink to offer some interest to the otherwise plain layer then I took the Wink of Stella glitter brush and tapped it so I got some little glittering splatters. 


I hope you liked my quick little project today, thank you for visiting and see you again soon.
