Spring Summer Card Swap

Hello Everyone,

With each new catalogue there are more wonderful products to choose for your paper craft projects.

To share some inspiration, some of us demonstrators do a card swap.

These aren’t exactly the same as the ones I sent, I forgot to take photos of those…. So I remade them with 2018 in colours, the originals were in 2017 in colours.

The Stamping is all done using the Beauty Abounds set… I love those bokeh dots.

I thought the sentiment was fitting too as we are all friends in the Stampin’ Up! community.

I added the butterflies using the Butterfly Duet punch and adhered them with a glue dot.

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.

Don’t forget to check out Sale-a-bration and the free products available when you spend multiples of £45.

If your shopping wish list gets to £99, there’s no better time to join my team. You can choose £170 worth of products to be included in your personal starter kit; add a little extra and receive an exclusive Stampin’ Up! Craft & Carry tote.

Thanks for stopping by today and happy Stampin’!

The Great Card Swap

Hello Everyone,

Today I am sharing a card I sent out as part of a swap group. The theme was “congratulations”.

I chose a simple design using the Well Said bundle allowing the sentiment to remain the focal point.

A splatter image from the Beauty Abounds stamp set was used to add colour to the background, increasing the intensity around where the sentiment would be positioned.

Three sets of leaves were die cut from white card stock and adhered with Multipurpose glue. The panel was added to a Gray Granite card base.

Night of Navy ink was used to stamp the sentiment. This was adhered over the bottom edge of Die cuts using 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.

So Glad #GDP172

Good Morning Everybody,

This week’s challenge from the Global Design Project is to Case the designer.

The inspiration card is from Shawn. You can see what the design team have created here.

I have used the Incredible Like You stamp set. The colour scheme was chosen to match the fabulous Reversible ribbon.

The card base uses Gray Granite card stock… This is such a great addition to the Neutrals colour family.

I substituted the strip of card stock with the stripes from the stamp set.

The sentiment was stamped with Gray Granite ink and adhered with dimensionals.

Some leaves were added to the background before adding two of the Blooms. These were stamped with Coastal Cabana Ink and fussy cut.

Finally, a bow of Reversible ribbon finished the card.

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

Those Who Inspire Us

Good Morning Folks,

Today I am combining a Sale-a-bration freebie with one of my annual catalogue favourites.

If you do not know what Sale-a-bration is all about click below to see more about the offers available.

I built this project by starting with this great sentiment. This comes from “Part of my Story” Sale-a-bration stamp set.

This was stamped with Lovely Lipstick ink and Die cut with a Stitched Shapes Framelit. A Scalloped Layering Oval Die made the card stock layer.

The card base was made with Lovely Lipstick card stock. Ribbon was wrapped around the white layer before adhering to the base. The prepared sentiment was added usind dimensionals.

The Pop of Petals stamp set was used to add some greenery to the background. Three flowers were stamped & punched. These were secured in position with glue dots.

Finally, some leaves were punched from Lemon Lime Twist card stock. Glitter Enamel dots completed 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.

Inspire.Create #034

Hello Everyone,

The Inspire.Create team have set a brand new colour challenge.

The inspiration has come directly from the Happiness Blooms suite of products from Stampin’ Up!

See what the design team have created with this palette here

I opted to let the experts do the hard work combining the colours. I picked out this pattern from the Designer Series Paper pack.

I wanted to add a sentiment to suit the bright colours. I chose this from the Friendly Expressions stamp set. I changed the layout by inking parts of the stamp separately.

I then used the Stitched Rectangle dies to cut the sentiment and a small strip of Night of Navy card stock.

Finally, I added some extra embellishments by punching some Bitty Blooms from Calypso Coral card stock. A Pineapple Punch enamel dot was added to the centres.

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

Watercolour Rooster

Good Morning,

I have to admit this guy was not top of my list to choose as a Sale-a-bration freebie…. But look how cute this card is, super pleased with the watercolouring!

If you do not know what Sale-a-bration is all about click below to see more about the offers available.

I started by stamping the rooster and sentiment with black waterproof ink using the Stamparatus. While that dried completely, the background layer was stamped with Crushed Curry ink.

Acrylic blocks make fantastic little watercolour palettes. Whether the ink is taken from an ink pad or a Stampin’ Write marker this is perfect for smaller projects. The blocks are easily cleaned with a cloth or Stampin’ Shammy.

I used my aquapainter to add colour to the image.

I decided to stick to a neutral card base, using Crumb Cake card stock.

The stamped topper was adhered to the base using 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.
