Making My Dad’s Birthday Card

Hello Everyone,

Here’s another quick card for the chaps in our lives…

For this project, the card base has been simply decorated by layering patterned paper and coloured cardstock.

This formula can be adapted very easily to suit the needs of the project you are making!

The Stitched So Sweetly dies make a simple sentiment topper and a bit of Wink of Stella adds some shine without being too feminine!

I hope you enjoyed this project.

To continue with the retiring product showcase this week, today’s project uses the Right Triangle and Rustic Retreat stamp sets.

Using Die Cuts and Punches to Make Beautiful Cards

Hello Everyone,

Today I wanted to make something really special and extravagant.

With a trim, this die cut fits a UK card base perfectly. Adding some ink with a blending brush highlights the details!

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

This combination of punches makes quick and easy embellishments.

I love this version of the card made in Blushing Bride!

Super Fast Cards with Oh So Ombre Designer Series Paper

Hello Everyone,

The end of Sale-a-bration is fast approaching so I have some super fast cards to share today!

I’ve chosen the Oh So Ombre paper to work with but you could use this simple layout with any of the patterned papers available.

The topper uses the Approaching Perfection stamp set which is also part of the promotion.

I did not add any extra ribbons or embellishments to these samples, the idea was to keep them very simple on this occasion.

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

I made this card using all four colours in the Oh So Ombre collection!

Bermuda Bay and Blackberry Bliss are two of my favourite colours!

And here are the Rococo Rose and Granny Apple Green versions!

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?
