I picked Have a Hoot and the coordinating Peek a Hoot dies to work with.

I used the tags die in the set to create these apertures in Crumb Cake cardstock and stamped this with Crumb Cake ink.

This was used to mark a piece of Whisper White, identifying where the owls would be stamped. I used the Stamparatus to position the stamps.

The images were stamped again on a separate sheet for colouring and die cutting.

Pool Party ink was applied to the white cardstock before colouring the tree branches. (No need to colour the owls at this point).

This was adhered behind the Crumb Cake apertures, then onto a piece of Real Red cardstock before adding to a Crumb Cake card base.

The owls were coloured with Stampin’ Blends markers before die cutting. They were adhered to the card with dimensionals.

Finally, Real Red ink was used to stamp a sentiment.

I hope you enjoyed this project.

The video tutorial for this project will be available tomorrow, do stop by again then!

Inspired Thursday – Playing with Poinsettias

Hello Everyone,

Did you see the Project Share Project blog post this morning? If not you can see it here

From Jill’s card I am using the striped layout with the Dainty Diamonds embossed centre panel.

From Heather’s card I am using the Playing with Patterns designer series paper and embellishments.

From Gez’s card I am using the Poinsettia Petals stamp set.

And this is the result!

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

So pleased with how this turned. The red card stock was definitely the right choice.

I hope you enjoyed this project.

Blended Postage Stamps

Hello Everyone,

I am experimenting with a different layout using Rectangular Postage Stamp Punch today.

I think I may have gone a little overboard with the dimension on this one, but I do like how the 4 rectangles came together in to a square shape.

The images were coloured with Stampin’ Blends markers, so the line art was stamped with water based Memento Tuxedo Black ink.

See how I made this card in my video tutorial…

I added some mess free glitter with a Wink of Stella glitter brush pen and a few pearls completed the card!

I hope you enjoyed this project.

Postage Stamp Punch Window card

Hello Everyone,

I hope you had a lovely weekend!

This idea entered my head from somewhere…. I wanted to create a window look with the Postage Stamp punch!

I then had to work out how to do it….

I decided to use the Ornate Style stamp set for the focal image, which I coloured with Stampin’ Blends.

Which colour way do you prefer?

Coloured Blooms

Hello Everyone,

This week I’m doubling up! Two cards each day with the same or similar products!

Today I am using the Pocketful of Happiness stamp set. This is also reduced at the moment making it a real bargain too!

This card was stamped with Memento ink and coloured using Stampin’ Blends.

The flowers feature over the base layer, softened with vellum.

Additional flowers were also fussy cut and adhered around the sentiment.

For card number 2, the flowers were stamped over the card layer with Stazon ink and coloured with watercolour pencils.

The panel was layered with black card stock and added to a white card base with dimensionals.

The same sentiment was stamped and cut with the Pretty Label Punch.

So which do you prefer? The vibrancy of markers or softness of watercolour pencils? It’s hard for me to choose!

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.

Better with You

Hello Everyone,

With the new 2020 annual catalogue just weeks away, today’s card mixes current annual catalogue and mini catalogue favourites.

Best Dressed designer series paper was adhered to a white card base.

A white panel was stamped with the sentiment from the Butterfly Gala set using Granny Apple Green ink.

The butterflies were stamped separately with Memento ink. Lovely Lipstick Stampin’ Blend was added to the back of the image. Petal Pink marker was used to blend first on the back and then on the front.

The images were punched out, shaped and adhered to the card.

Healing Thoughts

Hello Everyone,

The trees and plants have started to come to life with the recent fair weather, so I created my own colourful garden for today’s project.

No layers or fussy cutting with this one. Just the beautiful Grace’s Garden bundle.

Fours sets of each of the flower images were stamped on to Whisper White card stock with Memento ink.

I used a selection of Stampin’ Blends to colour the images. I was thinking of roses, poppies, hyacinths and forget-me-nots!

The coloured images were die cut and adhered to a card base with dimensionals. Some had a double layer to create extra depth.

I added a healing thoughts sentiment which was cut with a Stitched Rectangle die.

For Violet

Hello Everyone,

This weekend, I received the sad news that a member of our Stampin’ Up! teammates had passed away after being infected with Coronavirus.

Violet was an amazing person, generous and supportive of everyone in the team. She had a great sense of humour too. We will miss her the next time we have a team event.

So this card was made with Violet in mind, I thought the sentiment was perfect.

I used a combination of Highland Heather and Pool Party Stampin’ Blends which worked out really well.

The wings were shaped slightly with a bone folder. To keep the shape, the wings were supported by dimensionals whilst the body was fixed to the card with multipurpose glue.

I used a Stitched So Sweetly die cut as a backdrop. This was adhered with dimensionals.

Highland Heather ink was used for the sentiment, also adhered with dimensionals.

From the Bottom of my Heart

Hello Everyone,

Lots of colouring of one sort or another going on in today’s card.

I began by preparing the background panel.

I used my grid paper to line up some post it note masks so I could add ink to this portion. I did this with a sponge and Highland Heather ink.

Leaving the post it notes in place, I secured a pattern mask over the top and added more Highland Heather ink. I then added versamark to the inked section, peeled away the post it notes and embossed with clear powder.

The florals are from the Bloom and Grow set. These were stamped three times with Memento ink and coloured with Stampin’ Blends Markers.

The coloured images were die cut and then manually cut apart to create the large spray of flowers. I used a mix of dimensionals and liquid glue to add texture.

Finally, the sentiment was stamped with Blackberry Bliss ink and cut with the Timeless Label punch and Wink of Stella Glitter was added to the larger flowers.

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