Birthday Sugar

Hi, and welcome to my blog. If you've been sticking with me throughout the last week of intensive book page related blogging, then a huge thankyou! 

Today we take a break from the book pages to share with you a card I made using a gorgeous image from my favourite craft shop That Craft Place. You can visit their Facebook shop HERE, and the link to their Etsy store, where their digistamps can be found, is a little further down the page!

I used the following materials / steps for this project:

The adorable image is called "Love from Sugar" and is from That Craft Place's Sugar & Spice digistamp range, available to buy from Etsy.  The sentiment is also from That Craft Place's Etsy store. 

The image was printed onto Neenah cardstock and coloured using Derwent Academy Coloured Pencils, my first attempt using pencils!

That Craft Place don't just sell digital products, and indeed have a bricks and mortar shop selling craft goodies to stash addicts like me all over the country! Infact the mirror card on this project is from their store too.

The pink die cut with hearts cut out is from a die set by Tonic, and the yellow flower was cut with a die by XCut.

The papers and cardstock are from my stash.
