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!

*************************

I have taken the opportunity to showcase some retiring favourites!

The metallic elements I chose are Champagne Foil, and some metallic edged ribbon.

This sample uses Petal Pink and Rich Razzleberry with the Rooted in Nature stamp set and dies.

I love the detail of the Many Medallions dies. The foil looks amazing die cut this way.

I chose Very Vanilla as the base to bring through the warm tone of the foil and the inks.

This combo uses Blushing Bride and Blackberry Bliss!

I hope you enjoyed this project.

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.

Cardmaking with the Springtime Joy stamp set

Hello Everyone,

I wonder if you caught my post for the InspireINK Blog hop on Saturday?

I used the adorable Springtime Joy stamp set and I’m using it again today to CASE my own card to make today’s project!

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

Make sure to clean masks thoroughly between used….. My Coastal cabana turned a little grey. Fortunately, this didn’t spoil the final project.

The colour lifter marker gave my bunny a soft look! An essential for your Stampin’ Blends collection!

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 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!

Project Share Project Blog Hop – Fancy Fold Card

Good Morning Everybody,

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.

Monochromatic Cards featuring the Lovely You stamp set

Hello Everyone,

Today’s project demonstrates that beautiful cards can be made with limited supplies.

Monochromatic designs can still have depth and interest by using second generation ink, blending and layering.

The stamped border has been heat embossed to add texture, but this step could be left out!

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

Here is my sample made with Just Jade.

The sentiment could be punched or cut down with a paper trimmer.

Tell me which is your favourite and if you try this I’d love to see them!

Mini Catalogue Card Swap – What did I make?

Hello Everyone,

One of great things about being a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator is sharing creativity and ideas both with my customers and the rest of the team.

At each catalogue launch we do a card swap… By exchanging cards we share ideas, discover new techniques, and sometimes realise there’s something we didn’t see in the catalogue!

See how I made my batch of cards, you may be surprised at which stamp bundle was used….

The Shimmery White card stock is so pretty in real life!

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!
