Sunday Stamper - Week 218 - Shiny Happy People

Goooodly Morning Stampers and a very happy Sunday to you all. Many thanks for all your amazing entries for last weeks challenge and welcome to you lovely newbies who have recently joined in with the Sunday Stamper - I know I say it all the time but... thank you... you makes me smile big! On with this weeks challenge, the theme for which is... SHINY. To join in is simples: make a little something, it can be anything you fancy. Add in the theme and some stamping and then hop back here to leave me a comment with a link to the place you are showing your entry. If you haven't got a blog or web-photo-hosting-jobby, you can use Facebook or drop me an email. The theme will remain open until 21:00 Saturday 18th August 2012.


My reasoning for chosing the theme this week is because *ssshhh, don't tell anyone I told you but...* I have been using some metal for my samples for todays shows. Obvs, it is shiny - but you can use anything that is shiny - even the sun, that is shiny sometimes too! This first card is using said *don't tell anyone* metal and some gorgeous Spellbinder dies.


And this one... erm... yep, the same stuff - different colours though. I won't go into great detail on how I made them because I am hoping to be able to show you on the tellybox later. If you don't get chance to watch, I will try and make sure I do a tut-thingy on here later in the week.


I shall away. I have been naughty and sat and watched Mo Farrer romp home for a Gold... the half man, half Cheetah that is Usain Bolt storm his way to a new Olympic record in the 4x100m and then, bless his little cotton socks, young Tom Daley - winning a Bronze medal. What a credit to the country he is. Anywaya... enough of my waffling... apart from to remind you of the channel deets and show times etc: I am on with Dawn in the Tool Shed at midday for two hours and again with Dawn at 5pm. The channel is Sky 671, Freeview 36 or Freesat 813 or you can watch online HERE. Thanks for looking... have a fab day! TTFN

Love your shiny today Hels. Thought you might have used lots of gold - inspired by the truckload that Great Britain now has in the shape of Gold Medals! What a fabulous event it has been!

Love your cards today Hels and am busily thinking of an idea to enter the Shiny Sunday Stamper challenge. I actually found my metal sheets the other day - when I wasn't looking for them. They were, of course, in a safe place.

Have set the progs to record although I will be watching as well.

These are gorgeous samples Hels and I remembered the shows just in time to set record. I've been out of crafting action completely this week because of family commitments so nearly forgot, eeek! Of to do a couple of little chores so I can be ready to catch a bit of the 12 noon show live.

Break a leg Kiddo, as they say in showbiz! You'll be fab I know.

Brilliant cards Hels, love using metal too, really looking forward to the shows today too. A x

lucretia said...

Ah ha! Found you. I knew what you looked like but couldn't find the article I last read with your work in or recall your name but have been looking for ages for your blog and I've found it!

Ria said...

Hi Hels
I love these two cards but I have to say the pink one wins hands down for me. To be able to use the metal sheets and still make it girlie has got to be a winner.
I enjoyed your two shows today on C&C the stuff was flying out. I worried that there would not be enough for the rest of the show.

Claire said...
