Shaded Summer Birthday Card

Hello Everyone,

We are into the last few days of Sale-a-bration so I wanted to use the Summer Shadows dies again.

This time I’m using them alongside the metallic speciality papers and the Encircled in Beauty dies.

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

The coloured embossing worked out so well. It really helped to keep the coordinated look of the original black and gold design.

The different colour ways give the cards a completely different feel!

The black and gold is very striking and the gold shimmer ribbon looks fabulous!

I hope you enjoyed this project.

The Project Share Project Blog Hop – Birthday Theme

Good Morning Everybody,

Welcome to this month’s Project Share Project blog hop.

You will find links to the projects made by Jill, Heather and Gez at the bottom of this post…. It would be great if would stop by their blogs too!

Our theme is “birthday” – I’m sure the ladies will have some great ideas for this theme, but I’m sticking to a pretty floral card!

My card features the Art Gallery stamp set and coordinating dies.

I’ve also thrown in some embossing to add interest to the background.

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

A touch of ink rubbed over the embossing with a blending brush emphasises the texture!

This sample was made with Mango Melody and Mossy Meadow….

Which do you like best?

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.

Arranging a Springtime Wreath

Hello Everyone,

It may be turning chilly with autumn approaching, but I thought I’d make a little reminder of the bright colours of spring!

I’ve used the Stamparatus tool to stamp the wreath, first in Granny Apple Green ink and then again with versamark.

By heat embossing with clear powder, a glazed look can be achieved.

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

Here’s a close up of the glazed wreath and the shaped flowers!

This is the Christmas version…

And here they are together. Just shows how versatile this set can be.

Double Heat Embossing with the Today’s Tiles stamp set

Hello Everyone,

I trying out something fun with heat embossing today, I’m calling it double embossing!

Step one, heat emboss with clear powder.

Step two, heat emboss with coloured powder.

In this example I chose silver, this could also have been white!

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

I ended up using Rich Razzleberry card stock, but would have preferred to use Blackberry Bliss.

This is the original sample using Very Vanilla, Terracotta Tile and Cinnamon Cider.

I used gold powder for step two!

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!

Tiled Background with the Stamparatus

Hello Everyone,

I hope you’ve been loving the different backgrounds I have been making this week.

Here’s another with the Today’s Tile stamp set.

This is the Gray Granite version which was finished with champagne rhinestones.

The two Grey’s look so different when they are side by side. Which do you prefer?
