Friendship Card with Love What You Do from Stampin' Up!

I've taken my recent addiction to fussy cutting to a whole new level on this card, by cutting up a sheet of patterned paper! Well, not the whole sheet, I'm not that crazy - just a small corner of it :D 

I made a video to show how I put this card together. The video starts with the flowers already cut out - I didn't film the fussy cutting, no one wants to see that! I'll let you into a little secret though, the first part of the video shows how I stamped the grey leaves onto the white card. It looks like I'm stamping pretty randomly, but if you look very carefully you can see that there are small pencil marks on the card. I'd already assembled all the elements that I wanted on the card and had arranged them into the finished design without gluing. I then made small pencil arrows to show where I wanted to stamp the leaf images, and the direction that I wanted them to go in, so that once I'd removed all the elements from the white card I still knew exactly where I needed to stamp. 

I hope you like the video - it was a bit long so I've sped things up a bit to make it easier to watch - I don't really stamp that quickly!

Happy Birthday Card featuring a sponged bokeh background

This is the second card from my experimentations with circle templates and sponge daubers! I really had fun getting inky and making these cards, so it certainly won't be the last time that I use this technique. I went for a different colour combination this time, using Powder Pink, Berry Burst and Lemon Lime Twist. I had the die cut flower and the punched leaves in a little tub that I keep on my desk to store spare bits in - never throw anything away, you never know when it might come in handy! 

The sentiment is from the Hand Delivered stamp set, which is a hostess set. I love the font so this stamp is probably going to get used a lot.



Supply List: Hand Delivered Stamp Set; Eclectic Layers Thinlits Dies; Layering Circles Framelits Dies; Basic Black, Whisper White & Rich Razzleberry Card; Powder Pink, Berry Burst, Lemon Lime Twist & Versamark Ink Pads; White Stampin' Emboss Powder; Classic Label Punch; Leaf Punch; Vellum Card.

Graduate Card with the Hand Delivered Stamp Set from Stampin' Up!

I felt like doing a bit of colouring this weekend, and since it's the end of the academic year this stamp set seemed perfect! Even though I don't work in education anymore, there's still something really special about this time of year, that feeling of the school year ending and the promise of an endless summer stretching out before you.

I've used the pencils on their own to colour this image, I haven't blended (which you can do with the aquapainters or the blender pens) as I liked the look of the pencil strokes - it seemed to fit the theme of the card. It's unusual for me to create a card with a landscape orientation, and I still can't decide whether I like it or not! What do you think? Are you a portrait card maker like me, or do you like landscape cards? Let me know in the comments!



Supply List: Hand Delivered Stamp Set; Stitched Shapes Thinlits Dies; Tuxedo Black Memento Ink Pad; Whisper White & Rich Razzleberry Card; Neutrals Designer Series Paper; Share What You Love Artisan Pearls; Rich Razzleberry Velvet Ribbon; Watercolour Pencils; Paperclip from the Share What You Love Embellishment Kit.

Happy Birthday Card with Beautiful Day from Stampin' Up!

I spotted this gorgeous card on Pinterest the other day, and immediately knew that I had to have a go at my own version. I've copied the butterfly from Beautiful Day directly, as I loved the colour combination that Hannah used. I've added some Wink of Stella to the Lemon Lime Twist centre to give a hint of sparkle. I chose to mount the Whisper White panel onto Berry Burst card to match the Berry Burst butterfly wings. I've used a different sentiment, but kept the positioning the same, and also used the white embossing powder on Basic Black card. I've used Silver Metallic thread behind the sentiment, and finished off with some black sequins (because you know how much I love adding sequins!). 

I hope you like my version, and thank you Hannah for the inspiration!



Supply List: Beautiful Day & Hand Delivered stamp sets; Whisper White, Basic Black & Berry Burst card; Berry Burst, Lemon Lime Twist, Tuxedo Black Memento & Versamark ink; Silver Metallic Thread; Metallic Sequin Assortment; White Stampin' Emboss Powder; Wink of Stella.

Birthday Wishes Card with Touches of Texture from Stampin' Up!

I had a go at another new to me technique this weekend, and this lovely card was the result. I'm really pleased with how it turned out, so you'll see a few more cards using this technique in the near future!

I started off by creating a circular template by cutting a circle in a piece of waste card using the Layering Circles Framelits Dies. I then secured this to a piece of Whisper White card cut to size using washi tape and used sponge daubers with several colours of ink to create the sponged circle (Mint Macaron, Balmy Blue and Soft Sea Foam). Removing the template left a perfectly coloured circle. I then cut a couple of smaller circles in more waste card, and sponged through those using Craft White ink on top of the coloured circle to create the bokeh effect. Not bad for a first attempt!



Supply List: Touches of Texture & Varied Vases stamp sets; Classic Label Punch; Layering Circles Framelits Dies; Whisper White and Mint Macaron card; Mint Macaron, Balmy Blue, Soft Sea Foam, Tuxedo Black Memento and Craft White inks; Pick a Pattern washi tape; Share What You Love Artisan Pearls; Tranquil Tide Bakers Twine from the Share What You Love Embellishment Kit.

Congratulations Card with Little Elephant & Neutrals DSP from Stampin' Up!

I'm really enjoying spending time in my craft room at the moment, it's in the attic with a lovely big velux window and a view over the fields. I get the benefit of the gorgeous sunshine as well as a cooling breeze through the window while I'm creating - what more could you ask for?

I went with a similar theme to my last card, using a cut out circle over patterned paper, but I moved the circle to the bottom right corner, and used two layers of patterned paper from the Neutrals DSP pack. I stamped and punched the larger of the two elephants from the Little Elephant stamp set, and stamped and fussy cut two lots of the flowers. I don't know what's going on with me at the moment, I'm really not a fan of fussy cutting, yet I seem to be doing loads of it at the moment! Some of the new stamps just shout to be cut out :)

I tried several different ways to finish off the card, it just felt like it needed something above the circle, and when I scattered the sequins I knew I'd found a winner! I love the way it looks like the elephant is blowing bubbles!




Supply List: Little Elephant Stamp Set & Elephant Builder Punch; Neutrals Designer Series Paper; Classic Label Punch; Highland Heather, Old Olive, Daffodil Delight, Melon Mambo & Memento Black inks; Metallics Sequin Assortment.

Friendship Card with Stampin' Up! Varied Vases #GDP145

I love the colour combination in this week's Global Design Project Challenge. Mint Macaron is one of my all time favourite colours, I was so happy that Stampin' Up! brought it back as part of this year's colour refresh, and it works really well with Grapefruit Grove and Fresh Fig. 

I've seen a few cards recently using the technique of highlighting patterned paper through an aperture, so I thought I'd have a go. I've used some of the stamps from the Varied Vases stamp set to create my own background, using the three colours in the challenge, and I'm really pleased with how well it's turned out!




Supply List: Varied Vases Stamp Set with the Vases Builder Punch; Mint Macaron, Grapefruit Grove, Fresh Fig and Memento Black inks; Mint Macaron, Grapefruit Grove and Whisper White card; Layering Circle Framelits Dies.
