I chose the Bloom and Grow stamp set to create my project.

The images are fantastic for colouring with Stampin’ Blends.

This stamp set is retiring, so get it while you can… When it’s gone it’s gone!

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

The softer colour palette gives the design a completely different look.

Here’s a close up of the original card!

*************************

I have taken the opportunity to showcase some retiring favourites!

The metallic elements I chose are Champagne Foil, and some metallic edged ribbon.

This sample uses Petal Pink and Rich Razzleberry with the Rooted in Nature stamp set and dies.

I love the detail of the Many Medallions dies. The foil looks amazing die cut this way.

I chose Very Vanilla as the base to bring through the warm tone of the foil and the inks.

This combo uses Blushing Bride and Blackberry Bliss!

I hope you enjoyed this project.

Here’s something super simple for today’s card. This one features another overlooked stamp set, Inspiring Iris.

This is two step stamping set, although, the images can also be coloured with other mediums too.

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

I quite like the addition of the Melon Mambo on this carnation.

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.

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

I think this would make a great card for a guy too by switching Brights for neutrals!

I hope you enjoyed this project.

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!

I hope you enjoyed this project.

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!

Hello Everyone,

This week’s colour challenge…..

  • Terracotta Tile
  • Real Red
  • Smoky Slate

Terracotta Tile is one of the retiring in colours. If you want any of these colours in ink or accessories order soon.

I have chosen the Game On stamp set to work with. This is in the annual catalogue… I wonder if this will carry over to the new issue…

Fussy Cutting isn’t for everyone, but thought it was worth it for this project…

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.

Making More with the Today’s Tiles Bundle

Hello Everyone,

I wonder if you would’ve guessed which bundle I used to make this card?

This card was designed to show how to make the most of the smaller elements in a set.

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

It can be awkward to tie a bow with single sided ribbon. I hope you liked my tips on doing this!

I’d like to do another card using a single colour of cardstock to achieve a faux embossed look!

Using Die Cuts and Punches to Make Beautiful Cards

Hello Everyone,

Today I wanted to make something really special and extravagant.

I pulled out the gorgeously detailed Many Medallions dies and the coordinating stamp set.

With a trim, this die cut fits a UK card base perfectly. Adding some ink with a blending brush highlights the details!

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

This combination of punches makes quick and easy embellishments.

I love this version of the card made in Blushing Bride!

Monday Colour Challenge with the Waterfront stamp set

Hello Everyone,

It’s colour challenge Monday…. This one had me thinking!

I decided to use the Waterfront stamp set. This set is one of my older sets, and it’s a real possibility that this will retire when the new annual catalogue launches in May! Watch this space for more info!

This layout uses first, second and third generation stamping to create depth with a single colour ink pad.

See how I made my card in my video tutorial…

I hope you liked my tip on using the ink pad to make the edge of the panel more defined.

Inspire.Create.Challenge #086 – Anything Goes!

Hello Everyone,

Welcome to my blog! It’s time for another Inspire.Create.Challenge.

The rest of the design team have made some wonderful samples as inspiration. You can see them here.

Why not give it a go? We’d love to see your creations!

It’s funny, I could make whatever I wanted for this challenge, but somehow that made it harder to decide what to use!

In the end, I chose the Delicate Petals bundle. This set makes incredibly detailed dimensional florals.

The background was easier to stamp than it looks.

I used the Lovely Labels Pick a Punch to cut the sentiment.

A matte black dot completed the card!
