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

The Hive 3D embossing folder is so pretty and would make a great backdrop to a variety of projects.

Slim Card using the Words of Cheer Stamp Set

Hello Everyone,

I’m trying a different card base today to create the mini slim cards. These are made with the 6×6 Kraft cardstock by simply scoring in half.

The designer series paper is a returning favourite from last year called Heartwarming Hugs. It uses pretty patterns with the traditional red and green colour scheme.

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

I just love colouring with my Stampin’ Blends and I hope you find my quick tips useful!

Wink of Stella and glittery gems complete the cards!

Creating Subtle Backgrounds with Decorative Masks & Pastels

Hello Everyone,

Today I am sharing a technique to create backgrounds using the Soft Pastel Assortment.

Using this medium gives a much softer colour to the background than can be achieved with inks.

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

The piece was simply layered with coordinating cardstock with a die cut sentiment added with dimensionals

This card used a different mask but the same pastel colours. This time the sentiment was cut with the Double Oval punch.

I hope you enjoyed this project.

A Bit of Colouring with the Free as a Bird stamp set

Hello Everyone,

I fancied doing some colouring today, so I pulled out the Free as a Bird stamp set.

This set is in the annual catalogue and I don’t see it used very much….

I did a quick image search for British birds so I could use some appropriate colours.

These are coloured to resemble Robins using Calypso Coral, Smoky Slate, Bronze and Ivory.

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

Which card is your favourite?

Here’s the original sample with the little birds coloured to resemble blue tits. For these I used Balmy Blue, Old Olive and So Saffron.

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!

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,

I thought I would use the Quite Curvy bundle again today.

This was an early release last December and was extremely popular.

The Stitched So Sweetly dies were just the right size for the sentiment.

I think I like the Misty Moonlight base the most. What do you think?

Hello Everyone,

I do love this stamp set and I am sorry to see it retiring.

The sketchy artwork makes the images very easy to colour, whether you use Stampin’ Blends or watercolour pencils!

Layering the die cuts gives the card lots of dimension!

This sample uses Poppy Parade instead of Daffodil Delight…. With so many other colours in the Stampin’ Blends range there are lots of possibilities with this set!
