Hello Everyone,

This week I’m doubling up! Two cards each day with the same or similar products!

Today’s featured products are the Bird Ballad laser cut cards.

Some Very Vanilla card stock was cut to size. Stampin’ Sponges were used to colour the card stock starting in the centre. This card uses Gorgeous Grape and Melon Mambo inks.

The second combo used Granny Apple Green and Bermuda Bay inks.

The centre colour was used to stamp the sentiment which was cut with the 2″ circle punch. This was adhered to a Starburst punched from the combo colour.

Finally, some Small Blooms were punched, shaped and adhered to the card with multipurpose glue. Champagne rhinestones completed the cards.

I hope you enjoyed this project.

Since publishing this post, I made a video for the technique…

Birthday Bugs

Hello Everyone,

So this card turned out way better than I imagined it would!

The card features the retiring stamp set Wiggle Worm.

The little bugs were stamped with Memento ink so they could be coloured with Stampin’ Blends.

I used Pumpkin Pie and Daffodil Delight markers working from dark to light.

The body was coloured with Smoky Slate markers, with the dark marker used for the mouth.

Each was die cut and added to a layered card base in coordinating colours.

A sentiment was added with plain black ink and cut with the Label Me Fancy punch.

You Are…..

Hello Everyone,

This has to be my favourite stamp set in the annual catalogue. I love the versatility it offers for so many occasions.

Today, I chose bright colours to brighten the day during the lockdown.

I stamped the leaves first. I used my Stamparatus to layer the inks, applying them to the stamp with a sponge dauber. I started with Bermuda Bay, wiped the stamp clean, then added Granny Apple Green. Each leaf was die cut ready to add to the card later.

A simple background was stamped on to a Whisper White card panel with Crushed Curry and Melon Mambo inks. This was secured to a Melon Mambo card base with snail adhesive.

The sentiment was stamped separately and cut with the Timeless Label punch. This and the die cut leaves were added with dimensionals.

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

Love & Happiness

Hello Everyone,

Today’s project is a wedding card! The couple didn’t have an official colour scheme si I picked out this pretty Magnolia Lane designer series paper.

The paper was layered with Crumb Cake card stock with some vellum in between for a softened look.

The large magnolia was coloured with Petal Pink and Mossy Meadow Stampin’ Blends. This was then die cut and adhered with dimensionals.

The sentiment was taken from the Dandelion Wishes and cut using Stitched So Sweetly dies.

Healing Thoughts

Hello Everyone,

The trees and plants have started to come to life with the recent fair weather, so I created my own colourful garden for today’s project.

No layers or fussy cutting with this one. Just the beautiful Grace’s Garden bundle.

Fours sets of each of the flower images were stamped on to Whisper White card stock with Memento ink.

I used a selection of Stampin’ Blends to colour the images. I was thinking of roses, poppies, hyacinths and forget-me-nots!

The coloured images were die cut and adhered to a card base with dimensionals. Some had a double layer to create extra depth.

I added a healing thoughts sentiment which was cut with a Stitched Rectangle die.

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

For Violet

Hello Everyone,

This weekend, I received the sad news that a member of our Stampin’ Up! teammates had passed away after being infected with Coronavirus.

Violet was an amazing person, generous and supportive of everyone in the team. She had a great sense of humour too. We will miss her the next time we have a team event.

So this card was made with Violet in mind, I thought the sentiment was perfect.

I used a combination of Highland Heather and Pool Party Stampin’ Blends which worked out really well.

The wings were shaped slightly with a bone folder. To keep the shape, the wings were supported by dimensionals whilst the body was fixed to the card with multipurpose glue.

I used a Stitched So Sweetly die cut as a backdrop. This was adhered with dimensionals.

Highland Heather ink was used for the sentiment, also adhered with dimensionals.

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

The cherry blossom was stamped with Stazon ink.

Grace’s Garden

Hello Everyone,

I am so pleased with how this card turned out. It’s been in my head for some time!

I stamped the floral images I wanted to use on to some Whisper White card stock using Stazon black ink. The gate was stamped ith Memento ink. These were left to dry completely before colouring them.

Watercolour pencils were used to colour the flowers, smoothing out the lines with a blender pen.

I wanted the gate to be white, but added a touch of Ivory Stampin’ Blends marker for some depth.

All the pieces were die cut ready to adhere to the card.

A white card base was prepared by adding a layer of card stock which I coloured the edge of with a Highland Heather Stampin’ Blend Marker.

A final layer was stamped with a sentiment. The die cut pieces were added to the card using Snail and 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.
