Creating with the Textures and Frames Stamp Set

Hello Everyone,

I’m finally inking up this stamp set today…. You can choose this as a free item during the Stampin’ Up! Sale-a-bration promotion that runs until 30th September!

This set is right up my street, simple to use background builders are always high on my list to add to my stash! Doesn’t go well with the Biggest Wish set (another favourite of mine).

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

The sentiment combination was changed around in the two samples to give a different look…

The Subtles are in use with this sample which makes the black sentiment pop. The matte black dots tie the design together…

I hope you enjoyed this project.

The supplies used are listed and linked to the online store below.

If your order is less than £150, use the Hostess Code YKD92HEX when placing your order to get an extra gift from me!

I would love to be your demonstrator.

Thanks for stopping by today and happy Stampin’!

I have chosen to work with the Beautifully Penned Designer Series Paper. This is one of the fabulous papers you can earn during Sale-a-bration! This coordinates with the Hand Penned Petals Suite in the Annual Catalogue too!

I put this with the Biggest Wish stamp set which is great versatile set for beginner cardmakers!

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

I picked out three different ribbons to compliment the cards. Of course you don’t NEED to use all three, but this shows you some options. I kept it simple by tying knots rather than bows.

Whilst the black and white, monochromatic look suits the paper, just look what happens when you introduce a coloured card base!

This is Melon Mambo….

And these are Coastal Cabana and Granny Apple Green. All are in the Brights colour family.

Here are the cards I make in my video ….

I hope you enjoyed this project.

This week’s Monday Colour Challenge is…..

  • Early Espresso

A Final Card with Borders to Backgrounds

Hello Everyone,

The January to June Mini catalogue will retire in just over a week’s time…. And sadly this stamp set has already sold out 😦

But I still wanted to show you these cards I made with the Stamparatus tool. So if you managed to get the stamp set or you have something similar you can try this out!

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

The Biggest Wish stamp set lives on the desk at the moment…. I just love it!

I have used complimentary colours to make my cards. I think that these would also look good with black accents too!

And here’s a bonus card I didn’t show on my video! This combo is Shaded Spruce and Granny Apple Green.

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.

Monday Colour Challenge with Watercolour Shapes

Hello Everyone,

Monday is here again…. so it’s time for a colour challenge!

This week’s colours are;

  • Night of Navy
  • Merry Merlot
  • Pacific Point

I’d already decided that I was going to work with the Watercolour Shapes stamp set regardless off the colours that came out.

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

I think they worked out quite well in the end and I do love the bold sentiments in the Biggest Wish set!

The original samples were made using the skinny rectangle shape.

The Merry Merlot sentiment is my favourite, which is yours?

I hope you enjoyed this project.

Old meets New Simple Floral Friendship Card

Hello Everyone,

I love the simplicity of today’s card featuring an old favourite with the fabulous new set Biggest Wish.

A stamparatus tool would be really useful to stamp the background if you have one.

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

The coordination of the ribbon used pulls the whole design together.

This sample uses Blushing Bride and Blackberry Bliss.

Which is your favourite?

I hope you enjoyed this project.

Hello Everyone,

This week’s colour selection is….

With unusual combinations like this, I turn to “background builder” stamp sets.

So I picked this new set, Watercolour Shapes, to make this bokeh style card….

The bold lettering of the Biggest Wish stamp set was the perfect pairing.

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

This card could be made in many different colour schemes!
