Your Kindness

Hello Everyone,

Today’s card demonstrates that beautiful greeting cards can be made with minimal supplies.

This card features the Layered with Kindness stamp set which will retire when the new catalogue launches in June.

Granny Apple Green ink was applied to the stamp using a sponge dauber. I chose to also add some Shaded Spruce ink to the stems and base of the leaves for extra depth.

The sentiment was stamped with a contrasting colour, in this case, Lovely Lipstick. This was cut with the Timeless Label punch and added to the card with dimensionals.

Upline Colour Challenge 2

Hello Everyone,

Here’s another colour challenge card, just a bit of fun during these crazy times.

I have taken the opportunity to showcase some retiring products, Pop of Petals, Perennial Birthday, Four Petal Flower punch and the Leaf Punch.

You can see all the last chance products here along with links to the Early Release Product Medley and the Clearance Rack.

I stamped my own background layer with Pop of Petals and Mango Melody ink. This adhered to a Poppy Parade card base.

Coastal Cabana ink was used to add some leaves to separate layer and stamp the sentiment. I ran a Poppy Parade marker along the edge and adhered this with dimensionals.

Flowers were stamped with Poppy Parade ink and punched out. Multi purpose glue was used to secure them to the card.

Finally, some punched vellum leaves added some additional details and texture.

Colour Challenge Revisited

Hello Everyone,

You may remember the cards I made for a colour challenge last week. I liked the layout I used, do I switched out the for Bermuda Bay and Coastal Cabana.

Upline Colour Challenge

Hello Everyone,

There’s nothing like a colour challenge to get the creativity flowing. This week, my upline challenged the team to use these colours!

There are some stamp sets that really lend themselves to these types of challenge. Label Me Bold is one of those sets. With great images and some versatile sentiments this is a great beginner set too.

I have used my usual small card layer formula to make the card.

The white layer was stamped first with Smoky Slate ink, with the hearts added with Rococo Rose.

A vellum label was cut as an “overlay” and some extra texture.

The sentiment was stamped with Basic Grey ink and adhered with mini dimensionals.

I also made an alternative version, mixing up the colours and swapping the label for the Starburst punch.

And here they are side by side…. Which do you prefer?

Laurie’s Card

Hello Everyone,

I designed a card last week for a colour challenge that I was really pleased with, so when I realised it was a good friends birthday coming up I knew I wanted to make it again.

The original colours consisted of 2 neutrals to which I added a contrasting bright colour.

For this combo I chose Smoky Slate and Merry Merlot from the neutrals. I opted for Mango Melody as the contrasting colour.

I started by preparing a Smoky Slate card base and cutting Merry Merlot and Whisper White card stock layers.

The sentiment was stamped withe Merry Merlot ink and cut out with a Stitched So Sweetly die. This was adhered to vellum also cut with a die.

Before adhering the layers to the base, Smoky Slate ink was used to stamp the foliage. The layers were adhered together and added to the card with dimensionals.

The sentiment was added next, also with dimensionals.

Finally, the flowers were stamped with Mango Melody ink and punched. The petals were shaped before securing to the card.

I hope you enjoyed this project. The supplies used are listed and linked to the online store below.

Inspire.Create #064

Hello Everyone,

Welcome to my blog. Today I am sharing a project that I have used as my entry for the Inspire.Create challenge.

This time it’s a colour challenge. The design team have made some wonderful samples as inspiration. You can see them here.

And this is what I created!

My choice of colour was Lovely Lipstick. I thought this would add some contrast to the otherwise neutral pallette.

The base card was prepared using Crumb Cake card stock. Layers of Night of Navy and White were cut with Stitched Rectangle dies.

I picked a bold sentiment from the So Sentimental stamp set. This was cut with the coordinating die. Before sticking this down, I first added foliage images from the Pop of Petals stamp set and Crumb Cake ink.

Three flowers were stamped with Lovely Lipstick ink and cut with the coordinating punch.

I hope you enjoyed this project. The supplies used are listed and linked to the online store below.

Well Done

Hello Everyone,

Today I wanted to make something very simple that a new paper crafter could achieve. The layout would work with many different colour combinations, use the supplies you have!

My card base is made with Basic Grey card stock. I cut panels of Crushed Curry and Whisper White card stock.

The white panel was stamped using the Label Me Bold stamp set and adhered to the Crushed Curry layer.

The sentiment was stamped with black ink and cut with snips. I added this to a heart punched from vellum using mini dimensionals.

Mother’s Day Tulips

Hello Everyone,

Mother’s Day is only a few weeks away so I thought I would share this card with you. It’s very easy to make if you are just starting out with paper crafting.

The patterned paper is part of the free sampler pack available exclusively when joining Stampin’ Up! You will also receive a mini paper cutter and an additional free stamp set of your choice. This is all on top of the regular, totally customisable, starter kit – the best value product in the catalogue.

See more about joining Stampin’ Up! and the benefits it has by clicking here!

I started by making a white card base and adhering the patterned paper to the front.

Next, I stamped the tulips. They look great stamped in a single colour. I opted to mix Real Red and Flirty Flamingo. This can be done by applying each ink to the stamp with a sponge dauber. Each flower was cut out with the coordinating punch.

Before committing to sticking these in place, I positioned them first so the the stems could be stamped in the right place. The panel was layered with Real Red card stock and added to the card base.

I added the flowers with dimensionals to lift them slightly.

Finally, I added the sentiment. I have die cut mine, but this cut be cut with a paper trimmer just as easily.

Confetti!

Hello Everyone,

I have a lovely bright card to share today.

I picked out this cute paper as the background.

I cut a frame using the Stitched Rectangle dies and adhered this with mini dimensionals.

The sentiment was stamped with Bermuda Bay ink. This was also cut with a Stitched Rectangle die. This was positioned overhanging the frame.

Finally, some blooms were stamped with Daffodil Delight ink and punched out. An epoxy dot was coloured with a Poppy Parade Stampin’ Blend marker and added to the centres before adding to the card with multipurpose glue.

Butterfly Grove

Hello Everyone,

Today I am revisiting a favourite set from the annual catalogue for a colour challenge;

This one had me stumped and this was the third attempt at something I liked. I think the Grapefruit Grove was the sticking point but found a way to use it without overpowering the design.

I stamped the butterflies with Night of Navy ink. Seaside Spray and Coastal Cabana inks were used to fill in the images. These were cut with the coordinating punch.

Grapefruit Grove ink was used for the sentiment and cut with a Stitched Rectangle die.

I built up the card layers and added the sentiment with dimensionals. Three butterflies were adhered with multipurpose glue with the wings bent up for extra texture.

Thank You Blooms

Hello Everyone,

I really love how this card turned out.

The design combines the So Sentimental bundle and Sale-a-bration items.

A Gray Granite card base was prepared and layered with white card stock.

Night of Navy ink was used to stamp the sentiment which was die cut and adhered with dimensionals.

Flower centres were stamped in Daffodil Delight and Grapefruit Grove inks. The punch was used to cut the flowers to give white petals.

Before adhering, a few leaves were added first using Old Olive. The blooms were shaped and added with multipurpose glue.
