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!

I hope you enjoyed this project.

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!

I hope you enjoyed this project.

Friends are Like Seashells – Stamp, Die cut and Emboss!

Hello Everyone,

I’m using something new today. This suite is intriguing as it not only has coordinating dies, but a coordinating embossing folder too!

I chose to make my project using these fantastic products!

The Stitched with Whimsy dies added stunning detail to my background layer. The set has 6 dies, 3 squares and 3 rectangles!

The layer was matted with black cardstock. Daffodil Delight ribbon was added before adhering to a Daffodil Delight card base with dimensionals.

The Delicate Petals bundle has some beautiful stamps, but the dies are amazing! The dimensional flowered were easy to create with Basic White and Daffodil Delight cardstock. The stitched lacy details are incredible.

Soft Sea Foam ink was used to stamp over the background too.

The sentiment was stamped in Daffodil Delight ink. This fitted nicely in the Double Oval punch. I love the wavy edge rather than a scallop.

I used the Black Matte Dots for the centres which pulled in the black layering. The matte finish makes these perfect for male cards too.

Here’s a close up of those stitched details!

I hope you enjoyed this project.

Cardmaking with the Springtime Joy stamp set

Hello Everyone,

I wonder if you caught my post for the InspireINK Blog hop on Saturday?

I used the adorable Springtime Joy stamp set and I’m using it again today to CASE my own card to make today’s project!

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

Make sure to clean masks thoroughly between used….. My Coastal cabana turned a little grey. Fortunately, this didn’t spoil the final project.

The colour lifter marker gave my bunny a soft look! An essential for your Stampin’ Blends collection!

Inspire.Create Sketch Challenge with the Vine Design Bundle

Hello Everyone,

Welcome to my blog. Today I am sharing a 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.

And this is what I created!

When I saw the circle in the sketch, I knew I wanted to use the Vine Design Bundle for my project!

I used blending brushes to add some colour to the detailed die cut.

The flowers were stamped with Seaside Spray ink and also die cut for layering over the top.

See how the card was put together in my video tutorial….

The label me fancy punch was perfect for cutting the sentiment.

Rhinestones were added to the centre of each flower. These could be substituted with pearls or other embellishments.

This sample used Rococo Rose. Which is your favourite?

I hope you enjoyed this project.

Dimensional Floating and Fluttering Card!

Hello Everyone,

Another fabulous die bundle being featured today …. Floating and Fluttering!

I have shared some cards with the stamp set already, but I am also using the coordinating dies in the project featured today!

I used Stampin’ Blends to colour the butterflies. See how to get this stunning look in my video tutorial!

Using a coordinating ink pad for the sentiment pulls the design together.

And I just had to add Wink of Stella to the wings.

The die cuts give the card loads of dimension.

There are so many colour combinations you can try!

  • Highland Heathe
  • Just Jade
  • Gray Granite
