Layered Card with the Grace’s Bundle

Hello Everyone,

I do love this stamp set and I am sorry to see it retiring.

The sketchy artwork makes the images very easy to colour, whether you use Stampin’ Blends or watercolour pencils!

See how I made this card in my video tutorial…

Layering the die cuts gives the card lots of dimension!

This sample uses Poppy Parade instead of Daffodil Delight…. With so many other colours in the Stampin’ Blends range there are lots of possibilities with this set!

I hope you enjoyed this project.

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

Monday Colour Challenge with Under My Umbrella

Hello Everyone,

Here we are at Monday again and another colour challenge!

This week’s combo is;

  • Soft Suede
  • Shaded Spruce

I don’t use Soft Sueded and So saffron very often. After rummaging through the retiring stamp sets I settled on using Under My Umbrella to make a first floral background.

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

So what do we think? Which do you prefer? If I’d have had enough Shaded Spruce cardstock I would tried that too! Lol!
