Monday Colour Challenge with Hydrangea Haven

Hello Everyone,

It’s Monday! And our colour challenge this week is…

  • Highland Heather
  • Flirty Flamingo
  • Mint Macaron

I turned to Hydrangea Haven to make my card with these colours!

The offset layers are a fun way to add colour!

The Pastel Pearls were an obvious choice to add some bling to the project!

I hope you enjoyed this project.

Making My Dad’s Birthday Card

Hello Everyone,

Here’s another quick card for the chaps in our lives…

For this project, the card base has been simply decorated by layering patterned paper and coloured cardstock.

This formula can be adapted very easily to suit the needs of the project you are making!

The Stitched So Sweetly dies make a simple sentiment topper and a bit of Wink of Stella adds some shine without being too feminine!

I hope you enjoyed this project.

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!

Monday Colour Challenge with the Tranquil Thoughts Stamp Set

Hello Everyone,

This week’s colour challenge….

  • Garden Green
  • Mango Melody
  • Flirty Flamingo

It was so tempting to get out the Friendly Flamingo stamp set, instead I turned the the Tranquil Thoughts stamp set.

I’ve used this before for a challenge, but this time I am using some of the additional dies in the bundle too.

You can see how I made this card in my video tutorial….

Adding the ink with a blending brush brings out the embossed detail from the die.

Here’s a close up of the original sample. Which is your favourite?

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.

Making More with the Today’s Tiles Bundle

Hello Everyone,

I wonder if you would’ve guessed which bundle I used to make this card?

This card was designed to show how to make the most of the smaller elements in a set.

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

It can be awkward to tie a bow with single sided ribbon. I hope you liked my tips on doing this!

I’d like to do another card using a single colour of cardstock to achieve a faux embossed look!

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!
