STAMPtember - Sweet Cakes

Hi folks...I'm back with more STAMPtember makes...

this time using the "Sweet Cakes" stamp set...

playing with the new Pastel Distress Crayon on watercolor card to create a background...

and Distress Inks watercolouring over the stamped and heat embossed Sweet Cakes images...
I've been busy giving the kitchen a bit of a make-over...new paint colour on the walls and freshening up the paintwork...
and oh boy did I choose the wrong days to be stuck up a ladder with a paint roller in hand because rather unexpectedly Summer decided to return with the hottest roasty toasty days we've had all year but hey ho...the job is done and this beat up old crafter has every intention of spending today in the company of my best mate...
 who's got chilling down to a fine art...in other words...feet up and doing absolutely nothing.
but I'll be back tomorrow with more STAMPtember makes
Hugs Kath xxx


  1. Wonderful cards Kath.
    Buddy always looks adorable - hope you both enjoy your 'chillin'.

  2. Buddy sure knows how to enjoy himself, he looks super cool on the step - I guess it must have been a bit warm with that coat on.... Your cards are beautiful Kath, I love the soft colours in the background - I guess I need to add those new colours to my collection now! Hope the weather lasts a few more days...

    Hugs, Anne xx

  3. "Happy" birthday is apt, because these certainly made me happy to look at! gorgeous cards Kath.
    We were out of luck here in Leeds (as per usual), lovely weather everywhere else, and nothing but rain and misery here. Methinks I need to move back to Aberdeenshire, because my parents consistently report better weather than us! x

  4. Hi Kath x hope you are managing a relaxing day today x you have been so busy but it's all looking good x
    Totally love your Stamptember makes. Love the colours of the crayons and your stunning layout. You sure showcased these stamps xx
    Also love your journal pages in the post below.

    Sending hugs
