Upsy Daisy Candles and more . . .

Had a couple of friends over tonight to have a play at stamping onto candles, which I saw on SCS a while ago but now can't find it to link it up. This is what we came up with.
The first photo we used the wonderful "Upsy Daisy" set, Stampin' Up! markers on the first two and white craft ink on the blue one. You can just see the "Dazzling Diamonds" on the purple flower on the first one (tania's creation).

Tania and Carla also did these two.

And this is what little boys do with stamp offcuts when they are supposed to be in bed (Aidan 18 months).

Have an awesome weekend.

Kerryn's Colour Challenge #18

Kerryn's challenge this week used Glorious Green, Summer Sun, Rose Red and a neutral. All bright cheery colours. As my big boys are at rugby and little boy is in bed I have time to play, (should be doing end of year paperwork, but this is more fun). Here is my version.

Cardstock: Black, Glorious Green, Summer Sun and Rose Red

Ink: Basic Black

Stamps: Family Phrases

Tools: Star Punch, 1 1/4 Circle Punch, Square Scallop and Square Punch

Colour Challenge #51

I wasn't sure about this combo of colours (i think it was the mustard) but I love the way this has come together. The message isn't bad photography (not blurry), I have shadowed the choc chip words with more mustard using the stamp-a-ma-jig to get it just in the right place. I made the chocolate chip frame using the scallop border punch.

Cardstock: Chocolate Chip, Rose Red, More Mustard, Whisper White

Ink: Chocolate Chip, More Mustard

Stamps: Words from Upsy Daisy

Other: Rose Red Felt Flowers, Choco Chip Ribbon, More Mustard Brads

Tools: Stamp-a-ma-jig, Mat Pack and punch tool
