Lifting Me Up #GDP186

Hello Everyone,

This week is a sketch challenge!

See what the Design Team have created here

I have used a bright colour palette for my project featuring the Lift Me Up stamp set.

Pacific Point Designer Series Paper was added to a Whisper White card base.

Two squares of Whisper White card stock were die cut. The first was adhered flat. A small strip of Mango Melody DSP was added to the bottom edge. The second square was added with dimensionals.

A balloon was stamped with Poppy Parade ink and die cut.

A sentiment was added with Bermuda Bay ink.

Finally, some vellum clouds were added to the background.

I hope you enjoyed this project. The supplies used are listed below.

Thanks for stopping by today and happy Stampin’!

Wild Congratulations

Hello Everyone,

Here’s something a bit different from me today. Isn’t it cute!

This stamp set is called A Little Wild and will be retiring at the end of May.

The lions were stamped in Memento ink and coloured with Stampin’ Blends.

A rectangular frame was die cut and added to the card with dimensionals.

The lions were arranged in and around the frame.

A simple sentiment was added to the bottom.

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.

Inspire.Create #041

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

Sketch challenges can be interpreted in so many ways.

This is my project….. And no stamping!

I prepped a Basic Black card base. Lemon Lime Twist Designer Series Paper was added to a Basic Black card layer.

Some black glittered Organdy ribbon was tied in to a bow and added to the middle to hide the join between the papers.

A 2 inch panel of DSP was cut and layered on to Basic Black card stock and added to the card with dimensionals.

A die cut dragonfly and sentiment was then adhered to 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.

Bermuda Leaves

Hello Everyone,

This card was inspired by a card I saw by Karen Varley at Donemark Papercrafts. You can see the original here.

I just love Bermuda Bay so I used this as a starting point to make the frame with my Stitched Rectangles dies.

I knew I wanted a sentiment for the middle. I picked out this one from the Seize the Day stamp set. This fitted perfectly onto one of the smaller rectangles.

After fiddling around with the layout, I decided I wanted to stamp around the frame. I used the Stamparatus for this so I could use 2 ink colours. I find this works best using sponge daubers to apply each colour. This stamp was from the same set. I was so pleased with the result.

I layered this panel on to Bermuda Bay card stock and then to a white card base.

The frame and sentiment were added with dimensionals.

To complete the card I added some vellum leaves. This softened the edges of the frame without being distracting.

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.

Dream #GDP185

Hello Everyone,

This week is a colour challenge with a twist…..

See what the Design Team have created here

I have opted to use one of the exiting in colours for my design. The lovely Berry Burst.

I have used a standard card base matted with Whisper White card stock.

Additional layers were added over the top with dimensionals.

The design elements were taken from the Chase Your Dreams die set.

The feathers and the word “dream” were coloured using a sponge dauber.

I hope you enjoyed this project. The supplies used are listed below.

To See Far

Hello Everyone,

This stamp set was on my Product Purchase Premiere last year! New products before anyone else is just one perk of being a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator that attends an On Stage event.

I used some different colours for this one, plumping for Highland Heather for the watery background.

The sentiment was added next using Lovely Lipstick ink. I used the same colour card stock to layer on to. This was adhered to a Gray Granite card base.

The heron and water lilies were stamped with Gray Granite ink and coloured with Stampin’ Blends. I used the coordinating dies to cut the images and added them to the card front with dimensionals.

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

Petal Thanks

Hello Everyone,

Today’s project is about using up scraps. I had a bunch of Designer Series Paper strips left over from something else, (which you will see on Tuesday)!

The strips were trimmed slightly to 5-3/4 inches in length and adhered to a white card base.

A coordinating ink colour was used to stamp the bold sentiment from All Things Thanks. This was die cut with a Stitched Rectangle die and adhered with dimensionals.

The same inks were used to stamp the flowers which were cut with the coordinating punch.

Lastly, some leaves were punched from vellum. These were slotted behind the flowers and secured with Multipurpose glue.

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