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.

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.

Pootlers Spring Summer Blog Hop

Hello Everyone!

Today I am blog hopping with team mates showcasing the products from the Spring / Summer catalogue.

If you’ve not decided what to buy or need ideas for projects, this is the hop you need.

At the bottom of this post is a link to the other entries… Please do check them out!

I have resisted using this gorgeous stamp set especially for this hop. It’s called Wonderful Romance. I have also incorporated the stunning Speciality Designer Series Paper, this particular sheet is actually printed on to Vellum!

The main image was stamped in Stazon Ink. An aqua painter was used to watercolour the image, once dry this was die cut.

Dimensionals were used to adhere the die cut to the card base.

The sentiment was stamped with Shaded Spruce Ink, punched & mounted on to the lovely oval die cut from the same bundle.

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