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.

I call these inside out cards. I’ve use both sides to make each card!

I added a sentiment from the A Touch of Ink stamp set, (also free!) using a coordinating ink colour!

I think this one is my favourite!

You Mean Everything To Me

Hello Everyone,

I used this stamp set for the first time a couple of weeks ago and I had some other ideas on how to use it, and this is one of them.

See how I made this card in my video tutorial…

Embellishments can be customised with the Stampin’ Blends markers. I did this with the ribbon and the pearls for a fully coordinated look. They would have looked great left in white too!

I hope you enjoyed this project.

Birthday Bugs

Hello Everyone,

So this card turned out way better than I imagined it would!

The card features the retiring stamp set Wiggle Worm.

The little bugs were stamped with Memento ink so they could be coloured with Stampin’ Blends.

I used Pumpkin Pie and Daffodil Delight markers working from dark to light.

The body was coloured with Smoky Slate markers, with the dark marker used for the mouth.

Each was die cut and added to a layered card base in coordinating colours.

A sentiment was added with plain black ink and cut with the Label Me Fancy punch.

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

Colour Challenge Revisited

Hello Everyone,

You may remember the cards I made for a colour challenge last week. I liked the layout I used, do I switched out the for Bermuda Bay and Coastal Cabana.

The colours work really well together. What other combinations would you try?

In Colour Tulips

Hello Everyone,

If you have ever flown over The Netherlands, you will know colourful tulips can be!

All the current in colours are in use today, it won’t be long before we will be welcoming some new colours to the Stampin’ family.

The flower heads were stamped and punched in all the available colours except Call Me Clover. This was used for the stems and leaves.

All that was needed was a sentiment which I opted to stamp with Soft Suede ink. This particular sentiment seemed quite fitting given the current global pandemic!

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

Upline Colour Challenge

Hello Everyone,

There’s nothing like a colour challenge to get the creativity flowing. This week, my upline challenged the team to use these colours!

There are some stamp sets that really lend themselves to these types of challenge. Label Me Bold is one of those sets. With great images and some versatile sentiments this is a great beginner set too.

I have used my usual small card layer formula to make the card.

The white layer was stamped first with Smoky Slate ink, with the hearts added with Rococo Rose.

A vellum label was cut as an “overlay” and some extra texture.

The sentiment was stamped with Basic Grey ink and adhered with mini dimensionals.

I also made an alternative version, mixing up the colours and swapping the label for the Starburst punch.

And here they are side by side…. Which do you prefer?

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