My World is Brighter

Hello Everyone,

I am using the Paisleys and Posies stamps and coordinating dies for today’s project.

I have chosen a neutral colour combination of Sahara Sand, Soft Sky and Crumb Cake.

The card base was built using Sahara Sand card stock and adding layers of Soft Sky and Crumb Cake card stock.

The Crumb Cake was stamped with the large dotted outline first.

The make the topper, I stamped and die cut three of the shapes from the stamp set.

The sentiment was stamped with Early Espresso ink on to Very Vanilla card stock. The sentiment and Paisley shapes were arranged on to some Soft Sky card stock.

Some extra details were added to break up the empty space using Soft Sky ink and rhinestones.

I hope you enjoyed this project. The supplies used are listed and linked below. I would love to be your demonstrator!

Thanks for stopping by and Happy Stampin’!

Sunny Day #GDP135

Good Morning!

The Global Design Project design team are helping us all get ready for Summer with some beautiful bright projects.

This is the theme for this week’s challenge. See the inspiration here!

Here is my entry for this week;

I love this card!

To make the card base I stamped the sunshine image from the Sunshine and Rainbows using first and second generation Daffodil Delight ink.

Some striped DSP from the Tutti-Frutti pack were added down the centre of the card.

The sunglasses from Pocketful of Sunshine stamp set were stamped on to scraps of each of the 2016-2018 In Colour card stocks. To get an even solid black image I used my Stamparatus tool. This allowed me to stamp each image three times.

The images were fussy cut and adhered to the card using dimensionals.

The cute little sentiment from Sunshine and Rainbows was stamped with black ink and cut with the 1-1/8 scalloped circle punch.

The “sunshine” was created by punching a Daisy from So Saffron card stock. This was then cut again using the 1-3/4 inch circle punch. This was added to the card using doubled up dimensionals.

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

Lost Without You

Hello there,

The colour inspiration for today’s card came from this bright designer series paper from the Pick a Pattern collection.

All of the supplies used today are due to retire at the end of May. You can see all the retiring products here. Don’t miss out – once they are gone, they are gone!

To make this card, I used Pink Pirouette card stock to make the base. The DSP was then added to this.

The topper was made with Pink Pirouette card stock measuring 3-1/4 inches by 5 inches.

A piece was Whisper White was cut 1/8 inch shorter and narrower. This was used to stamp on.

I have used the Blooms & Wishes stamp set. The sentiment was stamped first with black memento ink.

The flowers were added using. Flirty Flamingo, Pink Pirouette, Crushed Curry and Emerald Envy inks. First, second and third generation stamping created a softer effect using such bright and beautiful colours.

This was adhered to the Pink Pirouette card stock and then to the card with dimensionals.

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

Inspire.Create #016

Good Morning!

This week the Inspire.Create design team are celebrating the 2016-2018 In Colours that will be retiring in June.

You can see their beautiful designs here!

And here are my projects;

I have used the You Move Me stamp and die bundle – also retiring – and really love how they turned out.

The card bases were cut to 4 inches and scored at 5-7/8 inches. Whisper White card stock was adhered to the front.

Five Stitched squares were die cut from white card. These were then cut again with the decorative butterfly die and adhered to a scalloped square cut from each of the In Colour card stocks.

Five additional butterflies were cut from white card stock. The wings were shaped with a bone folder and adhered to the scalloped square topper.

The sentiment was stamped in coordinating ink at the bottom of each card. I used my grid paper to line up each one.

The topper was adhered to the card with dimensionals.

Finally, three rhinestone gems were added to each of the butterfly bodies.

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

Smooshed Heart

Good Morning,

I am trying something new today… Ink smooshing!

I prepared a card blank using Rose Red card stock.

On some watercolour paper, I stamped the striped heart from the Heart Happiness stamp set using clear Versamark ink. This was heat embossed with clear powder.

Once cool, I smooshed Rose Red ink over the top. To do this, ink was applied to a piece of plastic which was then swiped and dabbed over the project.

While this dried, I die cut hearts from black card stock and vellum. A Tailored Tag was cut from Rose Red card stock.

Some black metallic thread was adhered to the card first. The other elements were then added over the top.

The greeting is from the Window Shopping set. This was stamped with Rose Red ink and adhered with dimensionals.

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

A Little Thanks #FMS333

Hi there,

This week at Freshly Made Sketches, Narelle is challenging crafters to use circles in their designs. This is the sketch;

The design team have made some great inspiration projects. You can see them here!

This is my entry in to the challenge.

The card base is made from Marina Mist card stock. Layers of Dapper Denim and Whisper White were adhered to the front.

My circles were made by cutting Dapper Denim with a 2-1/4 inch punch. The Starburst punch was used to cut some vellum.

These were layered together and adhered to the card, one flat, the other with dimensionals.

Two flowers from the Flower Shop stamp set were stamped with Marina Mist ink and cut with the coordinating Pansy punch.

The One Big Meaning stamp set was used to stamp the greeting. I used Dapper Denim ink. This was adhered to a Classic Label punched from Dapper Denim card stock and tucked in under the embellishments.

Finally, I added some Glitter Enamel Dots to the flower centres and to embellish the background.

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

Thanks for stopping by and Happy Stampin’!
