I chose the Bloom and Grow stamp set to create my project.

The images are fantastic for colouring with Stampin’ Blends.

This stamp set is retiring, so get it while you can… When it’s gone it’s gone!

You can see how I made this card in my video tutorial….

The softer colour palette gives the design a completely different look.

Here’s a close up of the original card!

Inspire.Create.Challenge #086 – Anything Goes!

Hello Everyone,

Welcome to my blog! It’s time for another Inspire.Create.Challenge.

The rest of the design team have made some wonderful samples as inspiration. You can see them here.

Why not give it a go? We’d love to see your creations!

It’s funny, I could make whatever I wanted for this challenge, but somehow that made it harder to decide what to use!

In the end, I chose the Delicate Petals bundle. This set makes incredibly detailed dimensional florals.

The background was easier to stamp than it looks.

I used the Lovely Labels Pick a Punch to cut the sentiment.

A matte black dot completed the card!

I hope you enjoyed this project.

I used this wonderful bundle called Best Year. The stamp set has sentiments for all year round.

The dies are easy to use. It only takes a few minutes to release all the tiny details.

You can have lots of fun with colour combinations too!

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

The bold sentiment was die cut with a Stitched Rectangle die and a few pearls completed the card.

I hope you enjoyed this project.

I chose to make my project using these fantastic products!

The Stitched with Whimsy dies added stunning detail to my background layer. The set has 6 dies, 3 squares and 3 rectangles!

The layer was matted with black cardstock. Daffodil Delight ribbon was added before adhering to a Daffodil Delight card base with dimensionals.

The Delicate Petals bundle has some beautiful stamps, but the dies are amazing! The dimensional flowered were easy to create with Basic White and Daffodil Delight cardstock. The stitched lacy details are incredible.

Soft Sea Foam ink was used to stamp over the background too.

The sentiment was stamped in Daffodil Delight ink. This fitted nicely in the Double Oval punch. I love the wavy edge rather than a scallop.

I used the Black Matte Dots for the centres which pulled in the black layering. The matte finish makes these perfect for male cards too.

Here’s a close up of those stitched details!

I hope you enjoyed this project.

I chose to work with the Springtime Joy stamp set and the Oval Occasions bundle to create an oh so cute and bright birthday card!

The sweet little lamb was coloured with Stampin’ Blends, but of course, there are other colouring mediums to choose from. I did go back to a favourite staple item in the Stitched So Sweetly dies.

I used the new blending brushes to add Flirty Flamingo ink to the background using a mask.

Gray Granite ink was used for the sentiment, which I punched with the fabulous coordinating Double Oval punch. This was layered with Flirty Flamingo over some white twine loops.

The new Pastel Pearls were the perfect finishing touch to the design, and I couldn’t resist a bit of Wink of Stella on the flowers!

I hope you enjoyed this project.

I’m working with this amazing paper pack called Flower and Field. The pack has two each of six double sided designs, there’s something for the guys too!

I call these inside out cards. I’ve use both sides to make each card!

I added a sentiment from the A Touch of Ink stamp set, (also free!) using a coordinating ink colour!

I think this one is my favourite!

I decided I would let the stats decide what I would share…. And this card has proven to be very popular!

This was made with the Quite Curvy bundle.

The leaves and birds were coloured using Stampin’ Blends markers.

I made several cards in different colour combinations…. I wonder which is your favourite?

You can see how I made my card in my video tutorial…..

Welcome to this month’s Project Share Project blog hop.

Links the other Project Share Project Fancy Folds are below, or use the next button at the bottom of this post!

Gez Carpenter: Nigezza Creates

Heather Forgan: Stamp With Nellie

Jill Chapman: Paper Daisy Crafting

This month’s theme really got me thinking….. Many of you will know I’m not one for anything fancy, but nevertheless, I have managed to make this card!

Measurements (inches):

Whisper White Base card 5-7/8 x 6-1/4 scored on long side at 4-1/8

DSP 5-3/4 x 4 and 2 pieces 5-3/4 x 2

Whisper White Inner card 5-3/8 x 7-1/4 scored on long side at 3-5/8

DSP 3 pieces 5-1/4 x 3-1/2

If you are using the Stitched So Sweetly dies to add panels, you will also need to cut 4 pieces of DSP 3-5/8 x 2-1/2

You can see how to make this card in my video tutorial….

I love how the different designer series papers work together!

The inside portion folds out. Leave a panel blank for your own handwritten message!

The little bit of extra stamping around the main greeting adds interest without adding bulk.

Jill’s card is very traditional, using reds and greens to colour her Christmas ornament! The shading makes it appear 3D!

I picked Have a Hoot and the coordinating Peek a Hoot dies to work with.

I used the tags die in the set to create these apertures in Crumb Cake cardstock and stamped this with Crumb Cake ink.

This was used to mark a piece of Whisper White, identifying where the owls would be stamped. I used the Stamparatus to position the stamps.

The images were stamped again on a separate sheet for colouring and die cutting.

Pool Party ink was applied to the white cardstock before colouring the tree branches. (No need to colour the owls at this point).

This was adhered behind the Crumb Cake apertures, then onto a piece of Real Red cardstock before adding to a Crumb Cake card base.

The owls were coloured with Stampin’ Blends markers before die cutting. They were adhered to the card with dimensionals.

Finally, Real Red ink was used to stamp a sentiment.

I hope you enjoyed this project.

The video tutorial for this project will be available tomorrow, do stop by again then!

For my design, I used post it notes to mask off sections of the cardstock to create a striped background.

The grid paper helped plan where the masks needed to be placed.

Stampin’ Sponges were used to apply the ink to each section. More colour was used along the left hand edge for an ombre look.

The vellum panel is 3 inches wide and long enough to wrap around the striped panel and secure with tape.

The “happy” die was added over the top with multipurpose glue.

Coordinating inks are used to stamp the rest of the greeting. Flag ends were punched with the Tailored Tag punch and adhered with dimensionals.

Small Blooms were cut from Whisper White card stock with a matching enamel dot placed in the centres.

You can see how the card was made in my video tutorial…

InspireInk Blog Hop – New Catalogue Favourites

Good Morning Everybody,

Welcome to this month’s InspireINK blog hop.

This month we are showcasing the new delights of the 2020 Stampin’ Up! Annual Catalogue!

Please be sure to click through all the projects in the hop by clicking on the link at the bottom of this post.

I am featuring the Blossoms in Bloom bundle.

This wouldn’t normally be something I would go for, but I have made so many cards already, I thought I would share another.

This is really easy for a beginner stamper too. Use the colours you have to make your own version of this card.

By using an odd number of images, the card design remains balanced. The stamps have details within them that gives a watercolour effect without the mess.

The Whisper White Tulle adds some soft texture. The sentiment tucks in under the knot nice and neatly.

And here is a closer look at the Melon Mambo version.

Pootlers Blog Hop – Heartfelt

Hello Everyone,

Here we are blog hopping again with the Pootlers Team! The theme is the new Mini Catalogue and Sale-a-bration!

There is a blue box at the end of this post with a link to all the other featured projects. There are so many entries that the links cover two pages! Please take a look, like and subscribe!

I have chosen to work with the Heartfelt bundle to make this layered card.

The card base is made with Real Red card stock. Layers of Whisper White and Flirty Flamingo card stock were adhered with Snail adhesive.

The next layer was cut with the largest rectangular die from the Stitched So Sweetly set. Two vellum hearts were attached toward the top and bottom of the die cut. This was then adhered with dimensionals.

The heart punches were used to cut Real Red and Whisper White card stock.

Two red hearts were sandwiched together with dimensionals.

A sentiment was stamped on to the white heart with Flirty Flamingo ink and added to the others.

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