Simple Colouring with Shaded Summer

Hello Everyone,

Shaded Summer is a delightful stamp set that’s super easy to colour!

I’ve chosen to use my Stampin’ Blends markers, but you could use whatever colouring medium you want.

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

This sample uses Flirty Flamingo and Old Olive…..

I’d like to try making these again using some purples instead!

I hope you enjoyed this project.

Fun Card with Hey Birthday Chick!

Hello Everyone,

I thought I’d make something fun today, so I pulled out these delightful ladies and some bright card stock!

This also gave me an excuse to use my Stampin’ Blends markers too!

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

I brought in more of the Cinnamon Cider in the yellow card which gave the chickens a different look.

Here’s a close up of the Poppy Parade version of the card….

Which is your favourite?

Embossed Rose Gold Birthday Card

Hello Everyone,

Did you spot this gorgeous speciality Designer Series Paper?

Each sheet has a beautiful brushed texture to it. I thought I’d add some extra texture with the Pretty Floral embossing folder.

I took the opportunity to use the Delicate Petals set once more too. The flowers were coloured very simply to coordinate with the card base.

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

I used a different layout for my original sample as another option.

This piece was embossed with the Stitched Greenery die. Look out for more projects with this in the future!

I hope you enjoyed this project.

Monday Colour Challenge

Hello Everyone,

Here we are with another Monday Colour Challenge…..

Our line up this week is;

  • Just Jade
  • Cinnamon Cider
  • Magenta Madness

All these colours are part of the 2020-2022 in colour collection, with Bumblebee and Night of Navy. You can purchase them all as a bundle and save 10%!

I’ve used the Flowers of Friendship stamp set and coordinating punch to make my project.

You can see how in my video tutorial…

The tone on tone look on the card base can be achieved with the coordinating ink or versamark depending on the look you are going for.

I used the same elements to make this version as part of a team challenge. I love this combo!

Simple Masking Technique with the Springtime Joy stamp set

Hello Everyone,

Masking is a useful but simple technique to achieve a different look with yours stamps without adding additional layers.

The front most image is stamped first and then covered with a paper mask. Cutting the mask from sticky note paper means it stays in place while the other images are stamped over the top.

You can see how to do this in my video tutorial….

Of course I had to get my Stampin’ Blends out to colour these little guys!

I hope you enjoyed this project.

One Card, Three Ways with the Art in Bloom Bundle

Hello Everyone,

I am so excited about this new product from Stampin’ Up!

The Art in Bloom bundle includes a stamp set, dies and a hybrid embossing folder!

The products can be used independently or in combination to make simple effective cards.

1. Simple stamping – use the stamps alone and colour them with your favourite medium or the two-step elements in the stamp set! I used Stampin’ Blends for my card.

2. Just emboss – use your Stampin’ Cut and Emboss to emboss your card stock. I’ve used Basic White and added colour with Blending Brushes. Why not try other card stock colours?

The ink picks out the embossed details.

3. Stamp, cut & emboss – easily line up your stamped images with the die and embossing folder. The die sits inside the folder which is specifically designed so that it is not damaged in the process – it’s so clever!

(Do not try this with your other embossing folders)

I raised the die cut pieces up on to dimensionals.

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

This shows just 3 options, but there are so many other combinations to try!

I hope you enjoyed this project.

Revisiting the Quite Curvy Bundle

Hello Everyone,

I thought I would use the Quite Curvy bundle again today.

This was an early release last December and was extremely popular.

I do love the little birds!

I’ve used the 2020 in colours as my colour scheme.

The Stitched So Sweetly dies were just the right size for the sentiment.

I think I like the Misty Moonlight base the most. What do you think?

Hello Everyone,

I do love this stamp set and I am sorry to see it retiring.

Inspire.Create.Challenge #087 Sketch Challenge with the Peony Garden Suite

Hello Everyone,

Today I am sharing my project for the Inspire.Create challenge. Design Team!

This time it’s a sketch challenge. The rest of the design team have made some wonderful samples as inspiration. You can see them here not give it a go? We’d love to see your creations!

I have chosen the Peony Garden Suite for my design and went for a gatefold card to complement the sketch layout.

There were some tricky measurements in making this particular card, but these can be adjusted slightly to meet your needs.

Gray Granite ink was used to stamp the peony image which was coloured with Soft Sea Foam and Petal Pink Stampin’ Blends and die cut.

Elegant Faceted Gems added a touch of bling, I did manage to get my Wink of Stella working (maybe it was camera shy?) and added a bit of that too!

I hope you enjoyed this project. You can see the video tutorial here!
