The sentiment was cut using the Tailored Tag Punch. Some Purple Posy card stock was also punched and layered together with dimensionals.

Pootlers Blog Hop – New Catalogue 2019

Hello Everyone,

Today’s project is part of a team blog hop where we have all used our shiny new products from Stampin’ Up!’s Annual Catalogue!

This one is terrific with some gorgeous stamp sets, bundles and full suites of products to choose from.

My project showcases product from the Magnolia Lane Suite. We had an enormous Magnolia in our front garden when I was a child and I always remember how stunning the flowers were.

The Designer Series Paper has been used as the background for my card. It is so lovely I wanted this to remain a feature.

The topper was kept small using the Stitched Rectangles dies. A larger layer was added by die cutting vellum, so the pattern could still be seen.

The white panel was stamped with a sentiment in black ink, and embellished using the small Magnolia image from the stamp set with Gray Granite ink.

Some silver thread was looped between the layers for some extra texture.

Please click on the blue box below to see all the other fantastic creations

Good Morning Everybody,

Welcome to this month’s InspireINK blog hop. This time we have a fun colour challenge.

Please be sure to click through all the projects in the hop by clicking on the link below.

I have chosen two lovely retiring stamp sets for my card, Falling Flowers & Friendly Expressions.

A white card layer was first stamped with the large flourish image using Mango Melody ink.

Blackberry Bliss ink was used to stamp the sentiment on to some vellum. I secure this to the card layer by wrapping the ends behind.

Other elements were stamped on to Whisper White card stock. The images were “coloured” by moving the ink with a Wink of Stella Glitter brush. These were then die cut ready to be arranged on the card front.

A combination of Multipurpose glue and dimensionals were used to adhere the elements. Some faceted gems completed the card.

InspireINK Blog Hop – For a Special Lady

Good Morning Everybody,

Welcome to this month’s InspireINK blog hop. If you have joined me from Jill’s lovely project, you will know the theme this time is…

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

So for me, every special lady deserves flowers, and what could be better than stunning orchids.

I made the orchids first using the Climbing Orchid stamp set and coordinating dies. I chose Daffodil Delight and So Saffron inks for the petals. These were put together with Multipurpose glue.

The card base was made from Whisper White card stock. A panel was embossed using the Layered Leaves Dynamic Embossing folder. A strip of So Saffron card was added over the top.

I added the orchids and slipped a Starburst cut from vellum behind them.

Gray Granite ink was used to stamp the sentiment from the Part of my Story stamp set. This was cut with a Stitched Rectangle die. I secured this with dimensionals.

Some rhinestones finished off the card with a sparkle.
