Inspiration from my Craft Table!

Hello Everyone,

Inspiration can come from just about anywhere…. And today’s card was inspired by some leftover pieces of Designer Series Paper that I discovered when tidying my craft table!

I decided to use the Art Gallery stamp set and dies to create the cards.

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

I love the pop of colour from the Polished Pink flower head!

This sample uses Pale Papaya, coordinating not only the DSP but the bloom too!

And here is Fresh Freesia!

I hope you enjoyed this project.

Easy Cards with the Hand-penned Designer Series Paper

Hello Everyone,

This week’s Inspire.Create.Challenge really got me thinking about ways to use designer series paper… One of my current favourites is the Hand-Penned collection!

Using this layout it is possible to make 6 of these cards from a single 12 by 12 sheet of paper.

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

Whatever layout you choose, you can’t fail to make stunning cards with these papers … And just love Highland Heather!

The jury is still out for me on whether the die cut needs the extra colour…..

These are the results with a different design from the paper pack! The main colour in this design is Pale Papaya.

Going Vintage with the Joyful Holly stamp set

Hello Everyone,

I love this stamp set so much, I’m very sad it will be retiring in January.

So here’s something a little different. All the projects I have created with this set have used traditional red and green colour combinations. This time I’m going for a vintage look!

See how I made my card in my video tutorial….

The Merry Merlot berries were a great addition to this design and the champagne rhinestones are the perfect finishing touch.
