Making My Dad’s Birthday Card

Hello Everyone,

Here’s another quick card for the chaps in our lives…

For this project, the card base has been simply decorated by layering patterned paper and coloured cardstock.

This formula can be adapted very easily to suit the needs of the project you are making!

The Stitched So Sweetly dies make a simple sentiment topper and a bit of Wink of Stella adds some shine without being too feminine!

I hope you enjoyed this project.

Layered Card with the Grace’s Bundle

Hello Everyone,

I do love this stamp set and I am sorry to see it retiring.

The sketchy artwork makes the images very easy to colour, whether you use Stampin’ Blends or watercolour pencils!

See how I made this card in my video tutorial…

Layering the die cuts gives the card lots of dimension!

This sample uses Poppy Parade instead of Daffodil Delight…. With so many other colours in the Stampin’ Blends range there are lots of possibilities with this set!

I hope you enjoyed this project.

Monday Colour Challenge with the Tranquil Thoughts Stamp Set

Hello Everyone,

This week’s colour challenge….

  • Garden Green
  • Mango Melody
  • Flirty Flamingo

It was so tempting to get out the Friendly Flamingo stamp set, instead I turned the the Tranquil Thoughts stamp set.

I’ve used this before for a challenge, but this time I am using some of the additional dies in the bundle too.

You can see how I made this card in my video tutorial….

Adding the ink with a blending brush brings out the embossed detail from the die.

Here’s a close up of the original sample. Which is your favourite?

Monday Colour Challenge with Today’s Tiles

Hello Everyone,

We have an interesting set of colours to work with this week….

  • Rich Razzleberry
  • Seaside Spray
  • Pear Pizzazz

I wanted to use the Today’s Tiles stamp set before it retires.

This set lends itself to use with the Stamparatus tool slowing the repositioning of the stamp to create this background.

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

It’s a tough call to pick my favourite with this one!

Bright Patchwork with the Right Triangle bundle

Hello Everyone,

To continue with the retiring product showcase this week, today’s project uses the Right Triangle and Rustic Retreat stamp sets.

Both sets are a little overlooked in the annual catalogue but I really enjoyed using them.

Monday Colour Challenge with Under My Umbrella

Hello Everyone,

Here we are at Monday again and another colour challenge!

This week’s combo is;

  • Soft Suede
  • Shaded Spruce
  • So Saffron

I don’t use Soft Sueded and So saffron very often. After rummaging through the retiring stamp sets I settled on using Under My Umbrella to make a first floral background.

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

So what do we think? Which do you prefer? If I’d have had enough Shaded Spruce cardstock I would tried that too! Lol!

Here’s a close up of the So Saffron version!

Inspire.Create.Challenge #087 Sketch Challenge with the Peony Garden Suite

Hello Everyone,

Today I am sharing my project for the Inspire.Create challenge. Design Team!

This time it’s a sketch challenge. The rest of the design team have made some wonderful samples as inspiration. You can see them here not give it a go? We’d love to see your creations!

I have chosen the Peony Garden Suite for my design and went for a gatefold card to complement the sketch layout.

There were some tricky measurements in making this particular card, but these can be adjusted slightly to meet your needs.

Gray Granite ink was used to stamp the peony image which was coloured with Soft Sea Foam and Petal Pink Stampin’ Blends and die cut.

Elegant Faceted Gems added a touch of bling, I did manage to get my Wink of Stella working (maybe it was camera shy?) and added a bit of that too!

I hope you enjoyed this project. You can see the video tutorial here!

Scrapbusting with the Tailored Tag Punch

Hello Everyone,

I don’t know about you, but I have a tonne of designer series paper to use up.

The papers currently available in the annual catalogue are likely to retire to make way for more beautiful things to come, so if there are any you want to stock up on, now is the time before they sell out!

A personal favourite is the Playing with Patterns pack. It’s full of bright colours suitable for all occasions.

I have used the Tailored Tag Punch to make a fun background with these papers. I used most of the designs for my card, but you could pick out a colour theme just as easily!

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

Orientating the punch shapes gives each card a different look.

The sentiment is taken from the Round of Applause stamp set.

I hope you enjoyed this project.
