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.

The supplies used are listed and linked to the online store below.

If your order is less than £150, use the Hostess Code YKD92HEX when placing your order to get an extra gift from me!

I would love to be your demonstrator.

Thanks for stopping by today and happy Stampin’!

Simple Friendship Card with the Parisian Flourish 3D Embossing Folder

Hello Everyone,

I’m doing something really simple today.

In the same way Designer Series Paper can make a card front, so too can embossing folders.

Today I have embossed Very Vanilla card stock. For a different look, you can use coloured card stock or designer series paper!

The texture created with these folders is incredible to see.

I have emphasized the detail by applying some ink over the top with a blending brush.

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

All that is needed is a sentiment. For this card I used dies as I had the Stampin’ Cut and Emboss Machine out. You could equally use punches.

Some coordinating ribbon completes the card. You can also colour ribbon with Stampin’ Blends, Stampin’ Write Markers or even Stampin’ ink pads!

I hope you enjoyed this project.

Don’t Forget Pretty Perennials!

Hello Everyone,

I’m sharing these cards today for a couple of reasons;

  • These beautiful stamps and dies are still available in the mini catalogue
  • To show how the new in colours work with SU base colours

Each card uses four colours, with darkest being used for the card base, sentiment and flower centres.

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

White ribbons can be coloured to match your project so these are great to have in your stash!

I really love how the purple card turned… Though I am biased, Blackberry Bliss is one of my favourite colours!

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.

Gez Carpenter: Nigezza Creates

Heather Forgan: Stamp With Nellie

This month’s theme really got me thinking….. Many of you will know I’m not one for anything fancy, but nevertheless, I have managed to make this card!

Measurements (inches):

Whisper White Base card 5-7/8 x 6-1/4 scored on long side at 4-1/8

DSP 5-3/4 x 4 and 2 pieces 5-3/4 x 2

Whisper White Inner card 5-3/8 x 7-1/4 scored on long side at 3-5/8

DSP 3 pieces 5-1/4 x 3-1/2

If you are using the Stitched So Sweetly dies to add panels, you will also need to cut 4 pieces of DSP 3-5/8 x 2-1/2

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

I love how the different designer series papers work together!

The inside portion folds out. Leave a panel blank for your own handwritten message!

The little bit of extra stamping around the main greeting adds interest without adding bulk.
