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.

Hello Everyone,

This week I wanted to share a selection of Christmas projects from the ladies, some have been shared before, and others are new!

As we reach the end of the current mini catalogue offering, some of the featured products may already have sold out, but the projects may still offer some inspiration to you, as they have me!

———————————

Jill’s clean and simple style is seen in all her projects.

The treat pouch is perfect for beginners.

I love the colours used on the Christmas trees.

The fancy fold card uses DSP and matching inks for a coordinated finish.

Heather has made three very different projects

I just love the wreath, I definitely want to try this.

Another wreath is used for her card, this time as a die cut.

The mini bell jar is adorable, a fantastic gift.

Visit Heather’s blog here for even more ideas!

Gez has also been busy with these projects!

These alphabet dies have used very creatively with some ink blending.

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.

https://fresh.inlinkz.com/js/widget/load.js?id=9c9b10dbdecdfb9300b0

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!

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!
