Adventure Begins #GDP183

Hello Everyone,

This week is a theme challenge!

See what the Design Team have created with the sketch here

And this is what I decided to make…. Let’s go fly a kite!

I prepared a white card base and stamped clouds with Smoky Slate ink.

The topper was made with Stitched Rectangle dies.

The kites from the Swirly Bird stamp set were stamped with the 2017 In Colours.

I picked out the sentiment from the Treehouse Adventure set which was stamped in Fresh Fig ink and cut with a Stitched Rectangle die.

I hope you enjoyed this project. The supplies used are listed below.

Thanks for stopping by today and happy Stampin’!

Swirly Birthday #GDP177

Hello Everyone,

This week the challenge is a colour challenge!

See what the Design Team have created with this colour combo here

And this is my card…

I love the Swirly Bird stamp set…. It can be used for any occasion, gender neutral, and works with just about any colour combination going!

I started with Granny Apple Green ink, stamping the splatter image in both first and second generation ink.

The large swirl was added next with Coastal Cabana ink. The same ink, but second generation, was used for the smaller swirl.

For the sentiment, I used the bold font of the Perennial Birthday set with Melon Mambo ink. I adhered this to the card with dimensionals.

I hope you enjoyed this project. The supplies used are listed below.

Green Swirl Birthday

Hello Everyone,

This card I made for an Irish friend who loves green.

And if green isn’t your colour, this design can easily be made in colours to suit your taste.

I like building backgrounds with different colour inks. The Swirly Bird stamp set is perfect for this.

I started with the largest image, stamped in the lightest colour, Soft Sea Foam. Stamping in threes is generally pleasing to the eye too.

The smaller images were added in the other colours, finishing with the splatter that was stamped with the darkest colour, Shaded Spruce.

Shaded Spruce was also used for the sentiment. This was added to over hang the layers behind the background panel.

I hope you enjoyed this project. The supplies used are listed and linked to the online store below.

I would love to be your demonstrator.

Inspire.Create #028

Hello Everyone,

There’s a new Inspire.Create challenge going on right now…. Look at these colours!

As always the design team have pulled out all the stops with their samples. You can see them here.

For my design, I wanted to use a stamp set with lots of complementary elements. I ended up choosing Swirly Bird.

The card itself was really easy to put together. First, I decided which stamps I would pair with each colour, (except Lovely Lipstick). I then built up the design, keeping in mind the “rule of threes”.

The corners were punched with the Detailed Trio Punch and adhered to a Lovely Lipstick card base.

I also used Lovely Lipstick card stock to die cut the word ‘love’ which I adhered to a Vellum circle.

The additional sentiments were stamped on to strips of white card stock. These were also added to the Vellum, this time with dimensionals.

The vellum was then adhered to the card with dimensionals, hiding them behind the other elements.

I hope you enjoyed this project. The supplies used are listed below.

Thanks for stopping by today and happy Stampin’!

Hi Everyone,

Today’s card was made with minimal supplies.

The card base was made with Perfect Plum card stock.

A Very Vanilla layer was stamped with the splatter image from the Swirly Bird stamp set using Perfect Plum ink before adhering to the card base.

The smaller layers were cut one inch smaller the the base layers.

A selection of swirl images were stamped on to the Very Vanilla card stock. First, second and third generation ink were used to create texture.

A Perfect Plum die cut swirl was secured to the upper right portion, with the sentiment banner added over the top.

I hope you enjoyed this project. The supplies used are listed and linked to the online store below.
