The Great Card Swap

Hello Everyone,

Today I am sharing a card I sent out as part of a swap group. The theme was “congratulations”.

I chose a simple design using the Well Said bundle allowing the sentiment to remain the focal point.

A splatter image from the Beauty Abounds stamp set was used to add colour to the background, increasing the intensity around where the sentiment would be positioned.

Three sets of leaves were die cut from white card stock and adhered with Multipurpose glue. The panel was added to a Gray Granite card base.

Night of Navy ink was used to stamp the sentiment. This was adhered over the bottom edge of Die cuts using dimensionals.

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

I would love to be your demonstrator.

Those Who Inspire Us

Good Morning Folks,

Today I am combining a Sale-a-bration freebie with one of my annual catalogue favourites.

If you do not know what Sale-a-bration is all about click below to see more about the offers available.

I built this project by starting with this great sentiment. This comes from “Part of my Story” Sale-a-bration stamp set.

This was stamped with Lovely Lipstick ink and Die cut with a Stitched Shapes Framelit. A Scalloped Layering Oval Die made the card stock layer.

The card base was made with Lovely Lipstick card stock. Ribbon was wrapped around the white layer before adhering to the base. The prepared sentiment was added usind dimensionals.

The Pop of Petals stamp set was used to add some greenery to the background. Three flowers were stamped & punched. These were secured in position with glue dots.

Finally, some leaves were punched from Lemon Lime Twist card stock. Glitter Enamel dots completed the card.

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

I would love to be your demonstrator.

Inspire.Create #034

Hello Everyone,

The Inspire.Create team have set a brand new colour challenge.

The inspiration has come directly from the Happiness Blooms suite of products from Stampin’ Up!

See what the design team have created with this palette here

I opted to let the experts do the hard work combining the colours. I picked out this pattern from the Designer Series Paper pack.

I wanted to add a sentiment to suit the bright colours. I chose this from the Friendly Expressions stamp set. I changed the layout by inking parts of the stamp separately.

I then used the Stitched Rectangle dies to cut the sentiment and a small strip of Night of Navy card stock.

Finally, I added some extra embellishments by punching some Bitty Blooms from Calypso Coral card stock. A Pineapple Punch enamel dot was added to the centres.

I hope you enjoyed this project. The supplies used are listed below.

Colourful Butterflies

Hello Everyone,

Today I am having a play with these three great Stampin’ Up! colours in a Facebook colour challenge.

I started by preparing a white card base, Stamping the background with Touches of Textures.

A Stitched Rectangle was adhered over the top with dimensionals. The sentiment was also cut with a Framelit and secured in position.

The butterflies were stamped and punched. I added these to the card and decorated them with rhinestone jewels.

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

Pootlers Spring Summer Blog Hop

Hello Everyone!

Today I am blog hopping with team mates showcasing the products from the Spring / Summer catalogue.

If you’ve not decided what to buy or need ideas for projects, this is the hop you need.

At the bottom of this post is a link to the other entries… Please do check them out!

I have resisted using this gorgeous stamp set especially for this hop. It’s called Wonderful Romance. I have also incorporated the stunning Speciality Designer Series Paper, this particular sheet is actually printed on to Vellum!

The main image was stamped in Stazon Ink. An aqua painter was used to watercolour the image, once dry this was die cut.

Dimensionals were used to adhere the die cut to the card base.

The sentiment was stamped with Shaded Spruce Ink, punched & mounted on to the lovely oval die cut from the same bundle.

I hope you enjoyed this project. The supplies used are listed below.

Lovely Lattice

Hello Everyone,

I made today’s card using a stamp set I received for FREE as part of Stampin’ Up!’s Sale-a-bration event.

It’s called Lovely Lattice and can be chosen as a free item when you place an order of £45.

The image was stamped on to Vellum with versamark ink and embossed with white powder.

I coloured on the reverse with Stampin’ Blends for a faux parchment effect.

As vellum is tricky to stick down I used an adhesive sheet. I cut this with the new layering rectangle dies.

A simple sentiment stamped with Old Olive ink completed the card.

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

I would love to be your demonstrator.

Why not join my team and enjoy discounted prices and access to exclusive events? During Sale-a-bration the starter kit offers extra value, for a little extra you will also receive an exclusive craft tote!
