Little Twinkle Baby ..

Buy Stampin Up! Little Twinkle Stamp set and matching punch !!
Hi everyone,
Well yet again its Friday and I am sat here wondering where did another week go? But I managed to clear most of my workload and created like a demon so  I will have things to share next week as its going to be a busy one. I have a Team Gathering next Sunday and I am really looking forward to being with them , but it does involves a bit of work.. ok quite a lot of work LOL

Anyway enough of my waffle, I had to make a welcome to the world card for a little treasure and I was busting to get to play with the new Little Twinkle bundle.

This card has a funny story attached to it as it ended up a collaborative affair. While I couldn't wait to play with this I set on the wrong path for some reason and it took a village of people to get it finished and I am still not entirely sure. Ok, maybe a village is an exaggeration but three of us weighed in our expert opinions.... love my crafty friends.

 Not even the editing get better LOL Man I forgot to take a closer shot so I wanted to trick you .... well as you can see I failed but you get to see those details a little more closely. I embossed the constellation in gold powder then tiny sparkly gold stars have been added for maximum shine and glitz.

I have sponged the Polka Dot Tulle ribbon in the Petal Pink ink, and gosh I love this new colour. It has a hint of peach to it and its just so classy and fresh. Perfect paired with navy which I need to try next. The sentiment has been heat embossed as well. 

So its time for me to go  and spend the next few hours chilling before my Facebook Live on my Facebook Page tonight at 8.30pm BST. Thank you for joining me today and if I don't see you on my Live broadcast tonight, have a fantabulous weekend.
Much love Monica

Stampin Up Varied Vases Card by Monica Gale #varied vases #stampinup #gracefulglassvellum

And we are showcasing the Varied Vases Bundle. If you visited me on Monday you will have seen so other examples made with these lovely vases.

For today's Showcase I stepped up the antics and made a somewhat more involved example. This card is for my sister's birthday ( she doesn't usually check my blog unless I send her to it so I'm keeping my fingers crossed she doesn't see it..... Laura if you see this ahead of time * Surprise !!! isn't it gorgeous ???) 

Laura loves orchids, and her windowsills are full with glorious ones always in bloom. She seems to have knack for keeping them thriving so when I thought about the card for her special day, I knew this set would be perfect.

And I spent a little time fussy cutting those tiny orchids and I am fairly sure I won't be doing this in a hurry ... but hey she my only sis and she is definitely worth it. 

I have punched the chubby vase out from Whisper White card stock and added some Embossing Paste to it. Its all in the details and my little pot definitely came alive with that extra step.

Before cutting the flowers up I added just a hint of colour to the centres using the Blends. Can you see that fab texture on the vase?? yum yum 

And let's just talk about the fabulous Graceful Glass printed Velum shall we?? You can this gorgeous pack here, so many wonderful designs and so easy to use. I have turned mine the other way here as the black lines were a bit too harsh with my soft colour scheme of Powder Pink and Grey Granite... as for the Powder Pink mini Ruffled Ribbon.. well that baby needs no introduction or superlatives of just how gorgeous is it.

Thank you so much for joining me and the rest of the designers today, now hop long to the gorgeous Nadine and see what she has in store today
