Card Swaps with the New Framed Florets Bundle

Hello Everyone,

There’s nothing like crafting with sister demonstrators in our team… And that’s what I did at the weekend all be it virtually this time.

So we did a little postal card swap… I will show you the cards I received another time … But this is the one I sent out featuring the new early release bundle Framed Florets!

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

Here I’ve used Pale Papaya and Tahitian Tide with a favourite combo of Evening Evergreen and Soft Succulent!

This is my original sample using polished Pink and Orchid Oasis.

I hope you enjoyed this project.

Inspire.Create.Challenge #130 with Blessings of Home

Hello Everyone,

Welcome to my blog today!

My card project is my design team inspiration for the Inspire.Create.Challenge 130…. And this time it’s a free choice, no specific theme or colours!

So I made something pretty and floral with the Blessings of Home bundle and my Stampin’ Blends!

The colours I used were Melon Mambo, Flirty Flamingo, Evening Evergreen and Soft Succulent….

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

The decorative masks add a simple and effective background to coordinate with the design.

Theses flowers were coloured with Tahitian Tide and Balmy Blue!

And this one uses Highland Heather and Fresh Freesia!

I hope you enjoyed this project.

Inspire.Create.Challenges #129 – Festive!

Hello Everyone,

It’s time for another Inspire.Create Challenge! And this time we are being festive with our creations!

You can see the other design team projects over on the Inspire Create Challenge blog

While you are there we would love to see what you make with this theme, just upload your image and we will pick a winner!

My card today features the Christmas Season and Christmas to Remember stamp sets.

I chose a bright colour palette of Granny Apple Green and Poppy Parade for the Holly leaves and berries.

For some contrast I picked out another colour from the “brights” collection – my fave – Bermuda Bay – and used this for the sentiment and card base!

For this sample I switched to the “subtles” collection of colours, Pear Pizzazz, Calypso Coral and Balmy Blue but kept the layout the same.

Both cards were embellished with this gorgeous gold ribbon!

I hope you enjoyed this project.

Floating DSP Technique using Hues of Happiness

Hello Everyone,

I thought I’d give this technique a try today using some scraps from my desk! I’ve seen this a few times, most recently by Jill at Paper Daisy Crafting….

Easel Card with Colour and Contour

Hello Everyone,

I’m bringing out another favourite stamp set for today’s card!

I created a hand stamped background, opting to use Basic Grey rather than black ink for a softer look. This complimented the Highland Heather ink I added to the flowers.

For something different I made this into an easel card. I thought this provided an opportunity for the beautiful scalloped edge to shine through.

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

The original card used So Saffron. I love this cute new tag punch!
