Lift Me UP!

I was so pleased this stamp set carried over… I love it!

The background was made from an off cut off Whisper White card stock which I embossed with the Hexagons folder. I inked over this with Pool Party ink, then layered this on to so Pool Party card stock.

I cut 3 clouds and adhered these with Fast Fuse.

The balloons were stamped in Real Red ink and die cut. This were added with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

A sentiment from the set was stamped in Pacific Point ink.

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

Thanks for stopping by.

Happy Stampin’!

Lovely

Sometimes simple is best, this is so cute, love how it came out.

I embossed some Whisper White card stock with the Petal Burst embossing folder. Before adhering to the card base, I added some Flirty Flamingo Striped Grosgrain ribbon. 

The Lovely die was cut from white card stock, then cut out using the 2nd largest heart die from the framelit set.

The largest die was then used to cut some Pink Pirouette card stock. The white die cut was then adhered to this, and added to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

To finish I tied a knot around the ribbon and added some Rhinestones.

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

Masking

Today I am applying a technique I learned whilst attending our team retreat over the weekend.

The lovely Janice showed us how to mask. By doing this a shape can be created surrounded by colour still allowing for stamping.

The retreat project used a circle cut from a post-it note. I have switched it up and used the pretty label punch instead.

I went with a floral theme, selecting stamps from the Beautiful Bouquet stamp set and purple pink tones of ink.

The same set contained the sentiment, which was stamped in Garden Green ink.

The piece was cut down and layered on to coordinating card stock.

The card base was also stamped before adhering the topper.

I finished off the card with some of the new rhinestones….even more sparkly than before! 

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

Hello Friend

I thought I would use some 2016 In Colours today…I thought they might be feeling a little lonely.

I have used the Oh So Eclectic bundle to create today’s project.

Peekaboo Peach was used to add the tiny petals to the card base. 

I used the same stamp for a tone on tone effect on the Dapper Denim card stock, I then scored the card stock on the reverse to add interest.

The leaves were die cut from Emerald Envy card stock. The flowers were first die cut from Powder Pink, the overlay is cut from Flirty Flamingo.

Finally, I made a sentiment banner stamped with Peekaboo Peach ink.

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

Happy Stampin’!

Pootlers Team Retreat, Day 2

Yes, these are Christmas cards! Yes, it is June! Us crafter’s have to start early.

So yesterday was brilliant!

The lovely Janice provided a make and take, with a focus on masking. My end results are pictured above.

Then we made a post-it note block and pen holder, courtesy of Sam Hammond, (pictures to follow).

Amanda showed us how we can use Memories and More products. This was something completely new to me and really enjoyed seeing the products in person. Watch this space for more on these products.

Thank you ladies for sparing time to create our projects, also to Heidi for her enormous effort to provide a “one sheet wonder”. I will be finishing this off at home and will share the results.

The whole weekend was truly amazing. I have met so many new people, been reunited with others, shared crafty hints and tips, and made some beautiful projects. 

Thanks also to my table mates; Laurie Jennings, Jill Chapman, Julie Addison and Tracy Walken.

This is why I love being a Stampin’ UP! demonstrator.

Thanks for stopping by.

Happy Stampin’!

Spots

Good Morning!

I am spending this weekend at my first Team Retreat. I am so excited I think I might berry burst!

So just a quick share today and tomorrow I will show what me got up to.

Super simple this one. Choose your colour scheme and away you go.

Select 3 or 4 inks, then randomly stamp the circle from Wood Words. Start with the darkest colour, I also stamped off a few of them too.

The sentiment I chose is from Window Shopping…I wanted something quite bold. I stamped this in same darkest ink colour on the a strip of card to suit the height of the sentiment. The strip was cut to 4 inches long to fit the card front perfectly.

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

Thanks for stopping by.

Happy Stampin’!
