May SU Colour Challenge

Hello Everyone,

I made this card ages ago and completely forgot to share it!

I have to different ink blending methods to create this project.

I also used the amazing Tropic Chic stamp set which is sadly retiring. To achieve the gradient colour on the leaves, I used the Stamparatus tool, inking and stamping each image twice.

Here is video showing how to create a blended background!

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.

Thanks for stopping by today and happy Stampin’!

Beautiful Bouquet vs Colourful Seasons

Hello Everyone,

Today is the final day of my doubling up week, I hope you have liked what I have sharing with you.

For this post I am using the same colour combo with two different stamp sets!

The first uses Beautiful Bouquet and the coordinating dies.

I started with a Grapefruit Grove card base and added layers of Pear Pizzazz and Whisper White card stock.

Flowers and leaves were stamped and die cut ready to add to the card. The sentiment was stamped with Soft Suede ink and die cut using the Stitched So Sweetly die set.

The elements were adhered to the card with dimensionals and a small bow was added.

My second card uses the same colours, but uses the Colourful Seasons stamp set instead. I do use the coordinating dies too but these are no longer available.

See how I created this card as it happened in the video below:

Peacock Duo

Hello Everyone,

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

Today, it’s the Royal Peacock stamp set and matching dies with Call Me Clover and Blueberry Bushel retiring In Colours.

For the first card, the peacock was stamped with the assistance of the Stamparatus, first with Blueberry Bushel for the head and body and Call Me Clover for the tail.

The details were heat embossed with copper powder, (also retiring), and then die cut.

Some additional feathers were die cut to embellish the sentiment. This was stamped with Blueberry Bushel ink and cut with the Stitched So Sweetly dies.

The second card is completely different!

Four large feathers were die cut from Blueberry Bushel card stock and adhered together to form an oval-ish shape.

Stitched Square dies were used to cut the green frame and the stamped sentiment.

A few rhinestones added some extra interest to the background.

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

With Deepest Sympathy

Hello Everyone,

It is a sad reality that not all the cards we make and send are for happy events. There is comfort however, that even at these sad times, a beautiful handmade card can be created.

I used a simple layout, starting by stamping a Whisper White card panel with an image from the Verdant Garden stamp set and Smoky Slate ink.

The panel was layered with Basic Grey card stock and some Polka Dot Tulle was wrapped around the middle. This was adhered to a white card base with dimensionals.

The sentiment is from the Peaceful Moments set and was stamped with Smoky Slate ink. This was then die cut and also added to the card with 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.

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.

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

Lovely Lipstick Friendship Card

Hello Everyone,

Have you checked out the Last Chance products yet?

The new annual catalogue launches next month which means making room in the warehouse and retiring some products.

There are a few things to consider when looking at the list;

1. Bundles will retire, but may still be available as individual items in the new catalogue.

2. 2018 In Colours and anything with those colours included, (DSP, ribbon, embellishments etc.) will retire…. But don’t worry new colours are on the way!

3. Individual Stampin’ Blends markers will no longer be available.

You can view the retiring products here

So this card uses retiring items, Lovely Lipstick ink and card stock, Best Dressed DSP and the Honey Bee stamp set.

The DSP panel measures 2 by 5 inches and was adhered to Lovely Lipstick card stock cut 1/8 inch larger on both sides.

I adhered this panel to a preprepared card base with dimensionals.

The sentiment from the Honey Bee stamp set was stamped with Lovely Lipstick ink and cut with the Stitched So Sweetly dies…. Thankfully these dies are staying, I use them so much!

A scattering of clear rhinestone jewels finished off the card.

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.
