Coming Soon…..

Hi Everyone,

I have exciting news. 1st November sees the release of limited edition stamps and dies.

As a demonstrator, I have been able to purchase this early, and as you know, I adore snowflakes for Christmas card making.

This is the idea I am sharing today using a non traditional colour scheme.

First, I stamped the small snowflake cluster across the card using versamark ink and heat embossed with clear powder.

Soft Sea Foam ink was applied over the top with a sponge dauber.

The sentiment was also stamped with Soft Sea Foam ink and cut with the Everyday Label Punch.

The large snowflake was die cut from Whisper White card stock. I then embellished with faceted dots.

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

Thanks for stopping by today and happy Stampin’!

Hi Everyone,

For today’s project I thought I would use the Making Christmas Bright stamp & punch bundle.

On a Whisper White card layer I stamped the circular motif with versamark and heat embossed with white powder. Balmy Blue ink was sponged over the top.

The sentiment was added with Smoky Slate ink. The layer was mounted on to a white card base with dimensionals.

The bulbs were stamped on to each of the 2018 in colour card stocks with versamark, embossed with clear powder and punch out. The fixings were punched from Basic Gray card stock.

Silver baker’s twine was adhered to the card base with Multipurpose glue. The light bulbs were added with dimensionals.

Merry Christmas To You

Good Morning Everybody,

Today’s card is a C. A. S. E of a card from The Creative Watermelon. You can see her original design here.

I really liked the watercoloured circle of Kaylee’s card. For my version, I used the Emboss resist technique.

The light bulbs from the Making Christmas Bright stamp set was stamped with clear versamark ink and heat embossed with clear powder.

Ink was pressed on to an acrylic block and added over the top of the embossing.

A white card layer Die cut with a layering circle die. The watercoloured piece was adhered behind the aperture and added to a Real Red card base.

Black card stock was die cut with an adhesive sheet on the back. The word could then be adhered straight on to the card.

The rest of the sentiment was heat embossed in white and then adhered with dimensionals.

Sorry…

Good Morning Everybody,

Today’s make is a clean and Simple card.

I began by embossing a white card base with the brand new Swirls and Curls embossing folder. The folder was not rolled through all the way, resulting in the bottom of the card remaining flat.

The word “sorry” was stamped with versamark ink and embossed with copper powder.

The partner sentiment was added with Early Espresso ink.

The tree was inked with Cajun Craze, a sponge was used to add some Early Espresso to the trunk. The image was die cut and adhered using mini dimensionals.

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

Look out for more Autumn Winter catalogue sneek peeks ahead of next week’s launch.

Just Add Ink #423

Hi Everyone,

I hope those of you in the UK are enjoying the Bank Holiday.

Today I am playing along with the Just Add Ink challenge.

This is an interesting combination, see what the design team have made here!

And this is what I have created featuring the Follow Your Dreams stamp set and dies.

I built the background first using the Artisan Textures stamp set. To soften this a little, a Vellum overlay was placed over the top. The panel was added to a Basic Grey card base.

There are lots of layers on the dream catcher.

First, the largest image was stamped in Basic Grey and Die cut.

The additional layers were cut from Bermuda Bay and Soft Suede card stock. These were secured together with a silver brad.

The large feathers were cut from white card stock and Soft Suede ink was added to the ends with a sponge dauber. The smaller feathers were stamped with Bermuda Bay ink on to matching card before Die Cutting and adding to the dream catcher.

The Friendly Expressions stamp set was used for the sentiment which was heat embossed with silver powder.

This was cut with the Pretty Label Punch and adhered with dimensionals. A few silver pearls completed the card.

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

Just Add Ink #420

Good Morning Everybody,

How about this for inspiration this week? Such a bright palette of colour.

The design team have made some great inspirational projects. You can see them here

For me the colours that show the most are pink-red, green and yellow. The botanical aspect is carried over in to my design with the use of leaves.

I opted for an Emboss resist watercolour card.

The leaves from the Blended Season stamp set were stamped with versamark ink on to watercolour paper. Clear embossing powder was added and this was heat set.

Lovely Lipstick, Pineapple Punch and Call Me Clover ink was pressed on to a silicon sheet and an aqua painter was used to colour over the card stock.

Once this was completely dry, extra ink was applied to the leaves. This brought out the detail of the stamped images.

The piece was adhered to some Night of Navy card stock and mounted on to a white card base.

A sentiment from Stitched All Around was stamped with Night of Navy ink and die cut with Blended Season coordinating Framelits. This was layered onto a larger Die cut from vellum and then adhered to the card base with dimensionals.

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

The theme this month was chosen by Sally.

This is my project.

Very Vanilla card stock was used to make the card base which was then embossed with the Tufted embossing folder.

The sentiments were stamped with versamark ink and heat embossed.

Oval dies were used to used to create a layered topper.

Polka Dot Tulle ribbon was zig zagged between the layers for added texture.

Perseverance

Good Morning,

I love today’s project! It turned out just as I had hoped. I had seen a short video clip of swimming koi and noticed many of them had large areas of white on them.

I thought about how I could achieve this.

As with my previous card using the smaller fishes; I used the Stamparatus to build the layers.

Using sponge daubers to apply the ink; I started with a little bit of Gray Granite. Added Poppy Parade around the head and tip of the tail, then added some Pumpkin Pie.

I was careful not to add ink to the middle of the body. The final step was inking the whole thing with versamark. This was stamped twice to ensure good coverage and then heat embossed with clear powder.

Pool Party and Soft Sea Foam ink was added around the fish to bring out the “white” parts and the illusion of water. A light spritz with water added to the effect.

The final piece was mounted on to Gray Granite card stock and then a Soft Sea Foam card base.

Ihope you like this as much as I did.

The supplies used are listed below and linked to my 24/7 online store.

Floral Frame Just Add Ink #414

Good Morning Everyone,

I am playing along with the Just Add Ink challenging today.

The design team have provided lots of inspiration, you can see their work here!

I have used floral die cuts to make a frame.

The floral die is from the Abstract Impressions bundle. I used this to die cut Whisper White card stock which had been coloured with sponge daubers.

A 2-1/4 inch circle was punched from some vellum. The sentiment was stamped on this with Gray Granite ink. This was heat embossed with clear powder.

A 2 inch punch was used to cut an aperture in a Whisper White card layer. The vellum circle was then added over the top with a tiny amount of multipurpose glue.

This panel was adhered to a piece of Soft Seam Foam card stock also with an aperture.

Dimensionals were used to add this panel to a Very Vanilla card base.

The floral die cuts were added around the edge of the vellum circle using multipurpose glue.

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