Simple Stamping with the In Bloom Stamp Set

Hello Everyone,

I’m using some favourites from the annual catalogue today for some simple stamping.

The beauty of this technique is that you can create the right background for your project!

I picked colours from the same colour family to work with. These are all from the Subtles! I’ve also pulled out my favourite Stitched So Sweetly dies too.

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

Here’s the original sample using Coastal Cabana, Flirty Flamingo and Daffodil Delight, all from the Brights family!

Stamping the sentiment a number of times with the Stamparatus intensifies the colour helping it to stand out from the background.

I hope you enjoyed this project.

Festive Friday with Jolly Holly

Hello Everyone,

Here’s a sneaky peek at a new stamp set coming soon in the new mini catalogue!

I just love the simplicity of this set, and I made a very simple one layer card.

Using the Stamparatus tool, meant I could stamp the leaves and the sentiment very quickly. It would be easy to make multiple cards too.

Watch how I put this together in a flash in my video tutorial….

The berries were coloured separately with a Stampin’ Write marker. Red rhinestones would look lovely too!

In My Heart

Hello Everyone,

All the projects I am sharing this week will feature at least one retiring product.

Today it is the Modern Heart stamp set.

I kept it simple heat embossing the image with clear powder.

The facets were coloured with watercolour pencils, though I think a “real” watercolor effect may have been more successful to achieve the rainbow look.

The sentiment was added with black Memento ink.

Blush Snowflakes

Hello Everyone,

As the Christmas season is drawing ever nearer, I thought I would share a quick card idea.

This card was simply stamped using the Frosted Foliage stamp set and Blushing Bride ink.

The sentiment is from the same set and stamped with Real Red ink. This was cut with a Stitched Circle Die and adhered to the card with dimensionals.

Simples! But very pretty!
