Hello Everyone,

I’m trying something new! A one sheet wonder! I’ve seen lots of these around on Facebook and YouTube, so I wanted to give it a go.

The products I’ve chosen are based on two Facebook challenges, Autumnal theme and a colour challenge;

I picked out leaf images from the Rooted in Nature and Loyal Leaves stamp sets.

See how I made my cards in my video tutorial…

I hope you enjoyed this project.

Inspire.Create #054

Hello Everyone,

Welcome to my blog. Every other Monday I share my project that I have used as my entry for the Inspire.Create challenge.

This time it’s a theme challenge. The design team have made some wonderful samples as inspiration. You can see them here.

And this is what I created!

This challenge was the perfect excuse to use the Christmas Layers Die.

I originally thought I would use white on white but the detail didn’t shine as much as I wanted.

Instead I chose a super bright background and sponged the card stock with Melon Mambo ink.

The sentiment was also stamped with Melon Mambo Ink.

Stitched Rectangles dies were used to cut the sentiment and some vellum.

These were adhered with dimensionals and embellished with Melon Mambo glitter enamel dots.

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

Welcome to my blog. Every other Monday I share my project that I have used as my entry for the Inspire.Create challenge.

Hello Everyone,

Welcome to my blog. Every other Monday I share my project that I have used as my entry for the Inspire.Create challenge.

This time it’s a theme challenge.

The design team have made some wonderful samples as inspiration. You can see them here.

I have used the emboss resist technique for my project;

I picked out the Stargazing stamp set…. I thought the stars would be perfect for this technique.

First, I applied Balmy Blue ink to some white card stock where the sentiment would be. I then used versamark ink to stamp the images. These were embossed with clear powder.

I then added Pacific Point and Night of Navy ink over the top. A damp cloth rubbed away the excess ink.

The panel was die cut with a Stitched Rectangle and layered on to Whisper White card stock.

A Night of Navy card base was embossed with the Swirls & Curls embossing folder before adding the topper 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.

Hello Everyone,

Welcome to my blog. Every other Monday I share my project that I have used as my entry for the Inspire.Create challenge.

This time it’s a theme challenge. The design team have made some wonderful samples as inspiration. You can see them here.

Well this is a challenge… After a rummage in my stash, I found a goldfish image in the Jar of Love stamp set, so I made a tank for them.

The back drop was made with a stamp from the Lily Pad Lake set. The weeds are partially stamped foliage from Jar of Love.

A Stitched Rectangle was used to cut an aperture in a white card layer. This was added over top with dimensionals.

The fishes were stamped and die cut and added to the ‘tank’.

By chance, the greeting “best fishes” was included in the set. I added this with Pumpkin Pie ink.

Spring Flowers

Hello Everyone,

This morning’s project is for a Facebook theme challenge from Jill. She has chosen spring flowers for the challenge.

I picked out the In Every Season stamp set and worked with the little bluebells.

I started by die cutting some Pool Party and vellum card stocks with the Stitched Rectangles dies.

The vellum was then embossed with the Layered Leaves folder and adhered to the Pool Party piece. Adhesive was applied knowing it would be covered by other elements of the card. Some Polka Dot Tulle was added to the piece before adding to the card.

The flowers were stamped with Stazon Ink to allow the use of watercolour pencils. These were then fussy cut and adhered on the left hand side. A small bow was secured over the untidy stems.

The sentiment was stamped and die cut. This adhered with dimensionals. Some matching glitter enamel dots completed the card.
