Simple Colouring with Shaded Summer

Hello Everyone,

Shaded Summer is a delightful stamp set that’s super easy to colour!

I’ve chosen to use my Stampin’ Blends markers, but you could use whatever colouring medium you want.

You can see how I made this card in my video tutorial….

This sample uses Flirty Flamingo and Old Olive…..

I’d like to try making these again using some purples instead!

I hope you enjoyed this project.

Fun Card with Hey Birthday Chick!

Hello Everyone,

I thought I’d make something fun today, so I pulled out these delightful ladies and some bright card stock!

This also gave me an excuse to use my Stampin’ Blends markers too!

You can see how I made this card in my video tutorial….

I brought in more of the Cinnamon Cider in the yellow card which gave the chickens a different look.

Here’s a close up of the Poppy Parade version of the card….

Which is your favourite?

Embossed Rose Gold Birthday Card

Hello Everyone,

Did you spot this gorgeous speciality Designer Series Paper?

Each sheet has a beautiful brushed texture to it. I thought I’d add some extra texture with the Pretty Floral embossing folder.

I took the opportunity to use the Delicate Petals set once more too. The flowers were coloured very simply to coordinate with the card base.

You can see how I made this card in my video tutorial….

I used a different layout for my original sample as another option.

This piece was embossed with the Stitched Greenery die. Look out for more projects with this in the future!

I hope you enjoyed this project.

Something Different with Butterfly Brilliance

Hello Everyone,

I’m trying something new today with the Butterfly Brilliance stamp set.

After a team meeting, I remembered a technique from many years ago where pigment powder was brushed over versamark ink, so I thought I would give it a go with the new Soft Pastels.

There are 8 colours in the pack;

  • Poppy Parade
  • Mango Melody
  • Daffodil Delight
  • Granny Apple Green
  • Mossy Meadow
  • Coastal Cabana
  • Night of Navy
  • Gorgeous Grape

See how I made this card in my video tutorial….

You can achieve different looks by adding more of the Soft Pastel!

The bold black sentiments add impact to the card design and are emphasized by the black border created with the layering.

I hope you enjoyed this project.

Simple Masking Technique with the Springtime Joy stamp set

Hello Everyone,

Masking is a useful but simple technique to achieve a different look with yours stamps without adding additional layers.

The front most image is stamped first and then covered with a paper mask. Cutting the mask from sticky note paper means it stays in place while the other images are stamped over the top.

You can see how to do this in my video tutorial….

Of course I had to get my Stampin’ Blends out to colour these little guys!

I hope you enjoyed this project.

One Card, Three Ways with the Art in Bloom Bundle

Hello Everyone,

I am so excited about this new product from Stampin’ Up!

The Art in Bloom bundle includes a stamp set, dies and a hybrid embossing folder!

The products can be used independently or in combination to make simple effective cards.

1. Simple stamping – use the stamps alone and colour them with your favourite medium or the two-step elements in the stamp set! I used Stampin’ Blends for my card.

2. Just emboss – use your Stampin’ Cut and Emboss to emboss your card stock. I’ve used Basic White and added colour with Blending Brushes. Why not try other card stock colours?

The ink picks out the embossed details.

3. Stamp, cut & emboss – easily line up your stamped images with the die and embossing folder. The die sits inside the folder which is specifically designed so that it is not damaged in the process – it’s so clever!

(Do not try this with your other embossing folders)

I raised the die cut pieces up on to dimensionals.

You can see how I made these cards in my video tutorial….

This shows just 3 options, but there are so many other combinations to try!

I hope you enjoyed this project.

Revisiting the Quite Curvy Bundle

Hello Everyone,

Hello Everyone,

Here we are at Monday again and another colour challenge!

This week’s combo is;

  • Soft Suede
