Amazing You Card in Dapper Denim

I am so in love with the little flower stamp from the Amazing You stamp set! I can't decide if I prefer the Peekaboo Peach version of this card, or today's version in Dapper Denim - what do you think? 

The only thing I'm not keen on with this version is that I didn't manage to get the watercolour paper to lie completely flat when I was adhering it to the background card, and I've managed to leave a big air bubble right in the middle! I've read a tip about running watercolour paper through a Big Shot or similar to flatten it out after it's been wet and dried, so I might give that a go next time. 

I have no doubt that I'll be sharing more using these stamps and dies, I can't get enough of them at the moment!

Mothers' Day Card #GDP128

Like many other papercrafters across the UK this week, I made my Mum a Mothers' Day card, which I couldn't share until now as she reads my blog (Hi Mum!). I based the design on this week's Global Design Project, which was a gorgeous card created by Steffi Helmschrott. The idea is to take inspiration from as much of Steffi's creation as you want, and then make a card that's your own. I took the gorgeous floral cluster in the bottom right of Steffi's card and worked with that. I've used the Naturally Eclectic Suite to create a cluster over a Brusho Watercolour background. I'm pretty pleased with how it turned out, and I think Mum liked it too! 

I was absolutely thrilled last week when I looked at the blogpost for the winners of #GDP127 and there was my little card! Thanks so much guys! I love taking part in the challenges, I think they're great for inspiration, and it feels great to be one of the winners :)

You're Simply Amazing #GDP127

This week's challenge over at Global Design Project celebrates Stampin' Up's amazing Sale-a-bration promotion. I decided to use the Amazing You Stamp Set and the Celebrate You Thinlets Dies to make this card. I started by embossing the gorgeous floral image from the stamp set onto watercolour paper, and then added colour using the yellow and gamboge Brusho colours. I decided to keep it simple and just added a stamped and die cut greeting, and then backed the whole thing onto Smoky Slate card to make the colours pop. Easy peasy!

Jems Blog Hop - Spring is Here!

This month's challenge for the Jems Blog Hop team is to celebrate all things Spring or Easter. I hope you've enjoyed everyone's creations so far, you should have come to me via the lovely Lynn. I went for a Spring themed card, I can pretend that Spring has arrived even if the weather isn't playing ball! I love the combination of Lemon Lime Twist and Powder Pink, it feels very Spring-like, so the Lemon Lime Twist card in the Sale-a-bration Tutti-Frutti card pack was the perfect base!

Oh Happy Day Card #GDP126

I played along with the sketch challenge at Global Design Project this weekend. Challenges are a great way to kick start creativity and get you thinking in different ways. I definitely think I'll be playing along more often because I love how this card turned out! I used the Happiest of Days stamp set, and some of the fabulous new Springtime Foils paper from Sale-a-bration. I love the metallic sheen to the paper, and the fact that it's really thick and sturdy - more like card than paper. I even did some fussy cutting - stamping the flowers on card, colouring them with the Stampin Blends and then cutting them out - not like me at all! 

Supply List:
Happiest of Days Stamp Set
Stampin Blends Marker Light Rich Razzleberry
Stampin Blends Marker Dark Pink Pirouette

Amazing You Layout with the Petal Passion Suite

I've been doing lots of crafting for a reason recently - you know what I mean, whether it's making cards for a commission or to send to someone in particular, or creating a project for a themed blog hop, you're creating with a specific purpose in mind. Last weekend I decided it was about time I did some crafting just for the sake of it, sitting down with no fixed outcome in mind, just pulling out supplies and seeing what I can make from them. This was the result!

I dug out one of my favourite photos of Mojo and decided to do a layout using the Petal Passion Suite. I layered some white card over the black and white striped paper from the suite. I used Lemon Lime Twist and Berry Burst ink and an Aqua Painter to create a watercolour wash, which I then added detail to using the splatter stamp from the Waterfront stamp set (which I can see being very regularly used in the future!)

I die cut a couple of the leaf/branch pieces and a border piece from black card using the Petals & More Thinlits and layered these behind the photo. I then added a heart sticker from the Petal Passion Memories & More Card pack, and a few black and gold sequins. 

To create the title I took a piece of scrap white card and scribbled liberally with the brush end of the Lemon Lime Twist, Berry Burst and Fresh Fig Stampin Write Markers to create an ombre effect. I then used the Sale-a-bration Celebrate You Thinlits Dies to cut the title from the coloured card.

You can purchase everything you need to make this layout from my online store - don't forget to use the February online code to earn a freebie from me. The full supply list is at the end of this post. Thanks for calling in, hope you enjoyed today's project!
