Dimensional Floating and Fluttering Card!

Hello Everyone,

Another fabulous die bundle being featured today …. Floating and Fluttering!

I have shared some cards with the stamp set already, but I am also using the coordinating dies in the project featured today!

I used Stampin’ Blends to colour the butterflies. See how to get this stunning look in my video tutorial!

Using a coordinating ink pad for the sentiment pulls the design together.

And I just had to add Wink of Stella to the wings.

The die cuts give the card loads of dimension.

There are so many colour combinations you can try!

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 W7ZJNXEV 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’!

Colour Challenges with Pretty Perennials

Hello Everyone,

Here we are again, the start of another week of lockdown here in the UK!

Today’s cards have been made for a couple of Facebook colour challenges;

  • Highland Heathe
  • Just Jade
  • Gray Granite

And….

  • Old Olive
  • Petal Pink
  • Night of Navy

I chose to work with the Pretty Perennials bundle. It is so versatile and great value for money. For a few extra pounds, you will also qualify for a Sale-a-bration item!

You can see the cardmaking process in my video tutorial….

I tweaked the layout slightly from the original so it was a little more balanced.

The Pastel Pearls from the Hydrangea Hill suite were perfect for this card!

I hope you enjoyed this project.

Super Quick Pretty Cards with the Pretty Perennials Stamp Set

Hello Everyone,

I am continuing with the quick and easy cards, this time using the fantastic Pretty Perennials stamp set!

With lots of elements that work together and some two step stamping too, this set is so versatile!

See the cardmaking process in my video tutorial….

With dozens of colours to choose from, this card can be made over and over again.

I did not add any embellishments or ribbon either, so imagine the possibilities for stepping up this simple layout.

Change the neutral colour to black, grey or Crumb Cake…..

Or use a different shade of green….

I wonder which is your favourite?

I hope you enjoyed this project.

Simple Stampin’ with Borders and Backgrounds

Hello Everyone,

It’s all about the stamping for today’s card project.

Here I have used the Borders to Backgrounds stamp set. The colour inspiration is from a just for fun Facebook colour challenge.

The sentiment is from Sweet Ice Cream, but of course this can be swapped for something else in your crafty stash!

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

Blending over the stamped sentiment ties the design together beautifully!

Hello Everyone,

Welcome to this week’s Project Share. As always my friends have created some lovely work. Please use the links to visit their blogs and read more about their projects.

This week I wanted to share a selection of Christmas projects from the ladies, some have been shared before, and others are new!

As we reach the end of the current mini catalogue offering, some of the featured products may already have sold out, but the projects may still offer some inspiration to you, as they have me!

———————————

Jill’s clean and simple style is seen in all her projects.

The treat pouch is perfect for beginners.

I love the colours used on the Christmas trees.

The fancy fold card uses DSP and matching inks for a coordinated finish.

Visit Jill’s blog here to browse more of her work!

Heather has made three very different projects

I just love the wreath, I definitely want to try this.

Another wreath is used for her card, this time as a die cut.

The mini bell jar is adorable, a fantastic gift.

Visit Heather’s blog here for even more ideas!

Gez has also been busy with these projects!

These alphabet dies have used very creatively with some ink blending.

The set of tags are just so cute and easy to make.

Changing the colouring medium gives the little gnomes a different look.
