Sam’s Colour Challenge

Hello Everyone,

Today’s project is for a Facebook colour challenge!

Aren’t they gorgeous!

I knew I wanted use flowers and settled on the Small Bloom Punch.

The background was made using the Many Medallions die. The coordinating stamp set, Many Mates, was used for the sentiment.

I also used the Stamparatus tool to create this multicoloured sentiment.

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

Vellum sprigs and clear rhinestones completed the card.

I hope you enjoyed this project.

Creating with the Tasteful Touches stamp set

Hello Everyone,

Lots of texture going on with today’s card.

I used Mint Macaron as the main colour, it’s not my most favourite colour in the Stampin’ Up! family but looks good with the black and white elements.

I made my original sample with a Blushing Bride layer over the front of a white card base.

I wonder which you prefer?

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

I love the glitter ribbon and pearls as the finishing touches!

I hope you enjoyed this project.

Clean & Simple card featuring the Sailing Home stamp set

Hello Everyone,

Clean and Simple is the order of the day today with these lovely sailing boats.

The stamp set has lots of detail so there is no colouring required if you don’t want to. I have used a damp brush to pull some the colour from the line art.

Die cutting the images was made so easy with the magnetic cutting plate, and it keeps your dies safe until you put them away!

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

I made the original sample using a Basic Gray colour scheme.

Here are the two side by side, which do you like best?

I hope you enjoyed this project.

Wonderful Rooted in Nature

Hello Everyone,

Today’s project is all about Stamps, Paper and Ink!

This version is stepped up slightly, adding an additional set of mats and layers to a coloured card base.

The single layer version is pictured at the end of this post.

Layers are easy to cut with Stampin’ Up! Paper Trimmer!

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

Masking over the sentiment means it stands out without the need for punches or dies.

New Colour Combo with Beautiful Friendship stamp set

Hello Everyone,

Yellow! Not my favourite colour, but I know many of you do, so I’m using Daffodil Delight as my starting point today.

After rummaging through my other ink pads, I decided to team this with Just Jade, (originally this was going to be Pear Pizzazz but I changed my mind!) and Rococo Rose.

See all the stamping in my video tutorial….

The black ink of the sentiment really pops from the other bright colours in this design.

Mini Catalogue Card Swap – What did I make?

Hello Everyone,

One of great things about being a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator is sharing creativity and ideas both with my customers and the rest of the team.

At each catalogue launch we do a card swap… By exchanging cards we share ideas, discover new techniques, and sometimes realise there’s something we didn’t see in the catalogue!

See how I made my batch of cards, you may be surprised at which stamp bundle was used….

The Shimmery White card stock is so pretty in real life!
