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.

Party Time #GDP171

Good Morning,

Getting back to my schedule following the holiday season, so today I have my Global Design Project entry to share with you.

The theme this week is…. A new year. See the design team projects here

I have used the Birthday Cheer stamp set to create my project… I thought the party hats were just the thing for the theme.

I built the card base using Melon Mambo card stock. I then added a layer of glimmer paper and Whisper White card stock.

For the topper, I heat embossed the sentiment with gold powder.

The hats were stamped in Stazon black ink and coloured with watercolour Pencils and adhered using dimensionals.

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

The candles were added above the sentiment. Balmy Blue ink was used to fill in the candles, whilst Mango Melody made the flames.

The panel was then adhered with dimensionals and some sequins were added to complete the card.

InspireINK October Blog Hop

Hi Everyone,

Welcome to this month’s InspireINK blog hop.

This month the theme is….

I used the image to inspire my colour choices too, opting for Blackberry Bliss, Old Olive and Crushed Curry.

The card base was layered with Very Vanilla card stock and Country Lane Designer Series Paper.

A smaller piece of patterned paper 2-1/2 by 3 inches was added towards the last hand side. An Old Olive coloured doily was adhered over the top.

Blackberry Bliss ink was used to stamp the sentiment on to Very Vanilla card stock. This was Layered on to Blackberry Bliss card stock and added to the card with dimensionals.

Matching leaves were cut with the leaf punch and were added along with some faceted dots.

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

This week marks the first anniversary of the amazing Inspire.Create challenge blog!

Congratulations to Hannah McCurley for making it all happen.

So the theme challenge is……

You can see what the design team have made here! Why don’t you join in too?

I have created a bright congratulations card featuring Petal Palette and the Buffalo Check background.

The check was stamped with Lemon Lime Twist ink and cut down to size… (I didn’t measure it). I also cut a piece of white card stock and stamped the leaves. This was added to a Lovely Lipstick card base.

The flowers were watercoloured with Lemon Lime Twist and Lovely Lipstick inks before Die Cutting. These were adhered with dimensionals.

The sentiment was tucked in to the flowers also using dimensional adhesive.

A few artisan pearls completed the card.

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