Wishing You Sunny Days

Evening everyone....I hope you have all had a great weekend.
I had a fantastic day at Sir Stampalot yesterday and would like to say a big thank you to everyone that came. It really was a brilliant day:) 

Sorry I have been a little quiet....with the TV shows and my mini holiday I just haven't found the time:(
I am now working on the October shows.  So rather than disappoint you all I have decided that I will do a post more regularly, but rather than do a full tutorial I will just add a list of items that I have used.  For the more detailed card/project I will still try to do a mini tutorial. However if any of you have a question on how I have done something then by all means just add your question in the comment box and I will answer it.  It may not be straight away, but I do try and check my blog a few times a day.

 Wishing You Sunny Days

Items Used
  • Heartfelt Creations Classic Sunflower Collection: Classic Sunflower stamp and die, Chick Retreat (sentiment) &Sunflower Bouquet stamp.  The sentiment inside the card is from the Raindrops on Roses collection - Adorned Roses and Raindrops on Roses decorative die.

  • Other Items that I have used are Spellbinder Stately Circles and Classic Circles Dies, Platinum & Diamond Stickles, Dove Blender pen, Distress Inks - mustard seed, wild honey, weathered wood, tea dye, gathered twigs, crushed olive, versafine - vintage Sepia, Archival - Olive, A Martha Stewart border punch, and some blue, sage green and cream card.


  1. Hi Nikki,
    Oh my favourite stamps and colours. I love how you colour the sunflowers, they are just so very pretty and I know I keep saying it but the blue card you use is gorgeous.
    Glad you had a good day at Stampalot...take care.

    Love Sheila xx

  2. Evening Nikki, I love this card, I saw you make it on TV and thought how lovely it was then. I did get these stamps and papers but haven't had a minute to try them out yet. Hope you enjoyed your mini break.

  5. I like the idea of 'little and more often' blogs!

  6. Hi Nikki
    Such a lovely card and pretty colors, i have just been watching one of your shows i recorded , and i did wonder where you got the pink mat ? { the one you use with the boor tool to curl your flowers } i have been looking for something for months now with no success .

  8. Wow wow wow Christine
    A stunning card for us today. Thanks for telling us what stamps etc you used. I tried to email you asking for the template for the pyramid box you did the other day. However, being abroad my emails aren't going through ,so will try when I get home.

  9. Sorry Nikki
    My brain must be in meltdown today as I meant to say a stunning card today, and not that I had emailed you for a template. So sorry. It's the hot sun in Crete that saddling my brain.
