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

I do love purple and grey together! I hope you like this alternative way to use a tag topper punch!

Here is the Blushing Bride and Early Espresso version. Another great combination.

There are many more you could use!

I hope you enjoyed this project.

Super Quick Pretty Cards with the Pretty Perennials Stamp Set

Hello Everyone,

I am continuing with the quick and easy cards, this time using the fantastic Pretty Perennials stamp set!

With lots of elements that work together and some two step stamping too, this set is so versatile!

See the cardmaking process in my video tutorial….

With dozens of colours to choose from, this card can be made over and over again.

I did not add any embellishments or ribbon either, so imagine the possibilities for stepping up this simple layout.

Change the neutral colour to black, grey or Crumb Cake…..

Or use a different shade of green….

I wonder which is your favourite?

Festive Friday with Jolly Holly

Hello Everyone,

Here’s a sneaky peek at a new stamp set coming soon in the new mini catalogue!

I just love the simplicity of this set, and I made a very simple one layer card.

Using the Stamparatus tool, meant I could stamp the leaves and the sentiment very quickly. It would be easy to make multiple cards too.

Watch how I put this together in a flash in my video tutorial….

The berries were coloured separately with a Stampin’ Write marker. Red rhinestones would look lovely too!

In My Heart

Hello Everyone,

All the projects I am sharing this week will feature at least one retiring product.

Today it is the Modern Heart stamp set.

I kept it simple heat embossing the image with clear powder.

The facets were coloured with watercolour pencils, though I think a “real” watercolor effect may have been more successful to achieve the rainbow look.

The sentiment was added with black Memento ink.

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

Blush Snowflakes

Hello Everyone,

As the Christmas season is drawing ever nearer, I thought I would share a quick card idea.

This card was simply stamped using the Frosted Foliage stamp set and Blushing Bride ink.

The sentiment is from the same set and stamped with Real Red ink. This was cut with a Stitched Circle Die and adhered to the card with dimensionals.

Simples! But very pretty!

InspireINK Blog Hop – Back to Basics!

Good Morning Everybody,

Welcome to this month’s InspireINK blog hop. This time we have a theme challenge to play with.

“Back to Basics”

  • One stamp set
  • One Ink pad & card colour

I chose one of my favourite stamp sets for this challenge, I find it so versatile.

So Tropical Chic with a Purple Posy colour theme.

The card stock panel was randomly stamped using Purple Posy ink. This was layered on to matching card stock.

Some Polka Dot Tulle was tied around the panel before adhering to the card base.

The sentiment was cut using the Tailored Tag Punch. Some Purple Posy card stock was also punched and layered together with dimensionals.

Shimmery Frosted Foliage

Hello Everyone,

Today’s card is a one layer card! I know… Not a dimensional in sight!

The simplicity of the design was intended to showcase the stunning Delicata Metallic Pigment Ink.

I used the Silvery Shimmer ink for the snowflakes. It is difficult to see from the photograph the true beauty of this ink.

For the frosty feel I used Seaside Spray for the sentiment and card base.

Keeping it Simple – Part 5

Hello Everyone,

If you follow my blog you will have seen that I have doing a series of simple cards with minimal supplies.

The card base was made with Whisper White card stock.

I added a smaller panel layered with Rick Razzleberry card stock with Polka Dot Tulle tied around the middle.

On some scrap card, I stamped some leaves. I cut two portions with the Tailored Tag Punch. I also stamped and punched the sentiment.

The pieces were positioned a bit like a jigsaw puzzle around the knot of the ribbon using dimensionals.

A few rhinestones finish the card!

Keeping it Simple – Part 4

Hello Everyone,

Welcome to part 4 of this series all about keeping it simple. Limited supplies doesn’t mean limited options!

So today, it is the layout that has been changed, opting for a square stamped panel as the focal point.

As before, I used Rich Razzleberry Ink to stamp the leaves from the Tropical Chic stamp set and layered this on to matching card stock.

The tulle ribbon was wrapped and tied around the panel before adhering to a white card base with dimensionals.

Also, as before, the sentiment was cut with the Tailored Tag Punch and some rhinestones finished the card.

Keeping it Simple – Part 3

Hello Everyone,

Here’s another keep it simple card….

This time I have added a punch to the supply list and used a simple stamping technique to get more from a single ink pad.

The background panel has been stamped with second generation ink…. This means inking the stamp, stamping on to scrap card and then using the second impression on the project. This gives a lighter shade without buying extra ink colours.

The Tailored Tag Punch was used to cut the sentiment.

Embossed Delightful Birthday

Hello Everyone,

I thought I would get my embossing powders out today to create these simple stamping cards.

For the background stamping I used the Artisan Textures stamp set with a trio of ink colours, working from light to dark.

An embossing buddy ensured the ink was completely dry before adding the sentiment with versamark ink.

Embossing powder was sprinkled over the stamped sentiment and heated until melted.

The toppers were adhered to white card bases with dimensionals.

Keeping it Simple

Hello Everyone,

There was a little challenge set in our team Facebook group this weekend…. Keep it simple – one stamp set, one colour and one embellishment.

I picked out;

  • Tropical Chic,
  • Rich Razzleberry ink,
  • Polka Dot Tulle ribbon.

And this is what I came up with… Super easy to achieve whether you are a beginner or more experienced stamper.

I stamped the leaves first overlapping the edges of the card layer.

The Tulle ribbon was added toward the bottom and tied in a bow. The layer was added to a white card base.

The sentiment was stamped next on to a strip of card stock and adhered with dimensionals.

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