Celebrating Tina

Hello Everyone,

Today’s card is dedicated to my wonderful friend and downline Tina, who sadly passed away in August.

She loved life, loved colour, loved flowers, especially Sunflowers.

This is us at Onstage Live last November. We had so much fun!

I wanted to make something that reminded me of Tina to keep on my craft desk.

Lots of colouring and die cutting for this one to create a stunning dimensional piece.

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

She wasn’t a blingy person, but I could resist some champagne rhinestones and Wink of Stella.

And here is where I am keeping it.

Always in my thoughts.

I hope you enjoyed this project.

This week we all took part in a team blog hop showcasing products from the August December Mini Catalogue.

There is so much to chose from, and all the ladies have used completely different products in completely different ways!

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

Heather has created this square card with a wonderful watercolour background! It really makes the single snowflake pop!

Gez has gone for a halloween theme for these little treat boxes. The silver embossing looks terrific on the bats! Totally spooky!

Hello Everyone,

It’s time for a team blog hop! This time we are showcasing the August-December Mini Catalogue products!

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!

Hello Everyone,

Did you see the Project Share Project blog post this morning? If not you can see it here

From Jill’s card I am using the striped layout with the Dainty Diamonds embossed centre panel.

From Heather’s card I am using the Playing with Patterns designer series paper and embellishments.

From Gez’s card I am using the Poinsettia Petals stamp set.

And this is the result!

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

So pleased with how this turned. The red card stock was definitely the right choice.

Blended Postage Stamps

Hello Everyone,

I am experimenting with a different layout using Rectangular Postage Stamp Punch today.

I think I may have gone a little overboard with the dimension on this one, but I do like how the 4 rectangles came together in to a square shape.

The images were coloured with Stampin’ Blends markers, so the line art was stamped with water based Memento Tuxedo Black ink.

See how I made this card in my video tutorial…

I added some mess free glitter with a Wink of Stella glitter brush pen and a few pearls completed the card!
