Just Add Ink #423

Hi Everyone,

I hope those of you in the UK are enjoying the Bank Holiday.

Today I am playing along with the Just Add Ink challenge.

This is an interesting combination, see what the design team have made here!

And this is what I have created featuring the Follow Your Dreams stamp set and dies.

I built the background first using the Artisan Textures stamp set. To soften this a little, a Vellum overlay was placed over the top. The panel was added to a Basic Grey card base.

There are lots of layers on the dream catcher.

First, the largest image was stamped in Basic Grey and Die cut.

The additional layers were cut from Bermuda Bay and Soft Suede card stock. These were secured together with a silver brad.

The large feathers were cut from white card stock and Soft Suede ink was added to the ends with a sponge dauber. The smaller feathers were stamped with Bermuda Bay ink on to matching card before Die Cutting and adding to the dream catcher.

The Friendly Expressions stamp set was used for the sentiment which was heat embossed with silver powder.

This was cut with the Pretty Label Punch and adhered with dimensionals. A few silver pearls completed the card.

I hope you enjoyed this project. The supplies used are listed below.

Thanks for stopping by today and happy Stampin’!

Inspire.Create. #025 Guest Designer

Hello Everybody,

Today is a very special day for me… Today I have the enormous pleasure to be a guest designer for this Inspire.Create.Challenge.

This week is a colour challenge, and wouldn’t you know they are three of my favourites!

So this what I have designed.

I have kept the card simple to allow the beautiful colours to shine through.

I used the Chase Your Dreams Framelits to cut five feathers from Whisper White card stock. The word “dream” was cut three times.

The inks were applied to the die cuts using a sponge dauber.

The die cut words were stacked and adhered to the card with Multipurpose glue.

Mini dimensionals were used to adhere the feathers to the card.

A touch of Wink of Stella was added over the top of the die cuts for a little extra sparkle.

I hope have enjoyed this project as much as I did making it!

The supplies used to make this card are listed below.

Thanks for taking the time to read my blog post today, please call back again soon.

Happy Stampin’!

Project Share Project

Hello Everyone,

Welcome to this week’s Project Share. This week the ladies have designed some lovely monochromatic cards.

It just goes to show what can be achieved with minimal supplies. I have enjoyed using this technique too.

Amanda has used shades of blue with the Very Vintage stamp set for this beautifully simply and elegant card.

See more about how the card was made on Amanda’s blog here

Angelina has treated her customers to this wonderful card design. This demonstrates the exquisite coordination of Stampin’ Up! Designer Series Papers and ink pads.

Heidi has used one of my favourite sets of Stampin’ Up! 2018 Annual Catalogue. The combination of greens makes the dream catcher really pop from the background.

I hope you have enjoyed all these projects.

Hello Everyone,

I love this new stamp set and couldn’t wait to make my own dream catcher!

To make the dream catcher I started by stamping the base image with Gray Granite ink and die cutting.

The additional catcher elements and larger feathers were die cut from white card stock. Mint Macaron ink was sponged over these before layering them together with multipurpose glue.

The small feathers were stamped with Balmy Blue ink. These were also die cut and adhered to the centre of the dream catcher.

Finally, the word dream was die cut from Basic Gray card stock. Wink of Stella clear glitter was added over the top and then adhered to the card with multipurpose glue.

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