Brightly Gleaming Specialty Designer Series paper

Hello friends,

The Brightly Gleaming Specialty Designer Series Paper (#150429) has beautiful copper foil accents on one side and this design has the copper stars. There is a lovely range of designs in this pack.

I stamped “Love, Peace and Joy” with Night Of Navy ink (#147110) onto Very Vanilla card (#106550). These words are from the So Many Stars stamp set (#p150496). For the Designer Series Paper I cut a rectangle which measured 9 x 13.5cm. Then I placed a mark 4cm from the bottom left corner both horizontally and vertically. I then cut from each of these marks to the top right corner, then I attached these 2 pieces to the Very Vanilla card. The cardfront was attached to the Night Of Navy base card (#106577). The stars are cut with dies from the Stitched Stars Dies (#150653), from Copper Foil Sheet (#142020) and Night Of Navy card. The bottom star was attached with Stampin’ Dimensionals (#104430) and I used a Mini Glue Dot (#103683) to attach the detailed star. A Copper Designer Elements accent (#149586) was added to the star to finish the card.

Enjoy your day.

Daisy Lane


These beautiful daisies are from the Daisy Lane stamp set (#c149325).

The large daisy has been stamped twice with Mango Melody ink (#147093) on Mango Melody card (#147013), then punched with the co-ordinating Daisy Punch (#143713). These were assembled with Mini Glue Dots (#103683). The background was stamped with the All Wired Up background stamp (#c149262) using Smokey Slate ink (#147113). I then stamped 3 of the smaller daisies onto the card front, as well as 3 on separate Very Vanilla card (#106550) and fussy cut these. The daisies were then attached with Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals (#144108). The leaves, also from the Daisy Lane stamp set, were stamped with Old Olive ink (#147090). “Thank You” is from the Abstract Impressions stamp set (#p147513) and I used Mango Melody ink. This was cut with a die from the Ornate Frames (#150664). The Holiday Rhinestones Basic Jewels (#150457) were used on the sentiment and the centre of the large daisy. The base card and card front are Very Vanilla.

Have a great weekend.

Pigment Sprinkles

Hi everyone,

I have just had a play with the Pigment Sprinkles (#149663). These are watercolour pigment crystals which you just mix with water. You only need to use a very small amount of crystals. There are 6 Stampin’ Up! colours which are Bermuda Bay, Daffodil Delight, Granny Apple Green, Gorgeous Grape, Mango Melody and Melon Mambo.

I used the Gorgeous Grape pigment. I added a small amount of crystals and mixed with water on an acrylic block, then using an Aqua Painter (#103954) to colour the Watercolour Paper (#149612). This was the attached to a piece of Basic Black card (#121688). The base card is Very Vanilla (#106550). The Very Vanilla “Thank You” was cut with the Thank You Die (#146832) and I fussy cut the Basic Black card. The butterfly was cut from the Butterfly Beauty Dies (#148536) and I added Rhinestone Basic Jewels (#144220) to the body of the butterfly. The ribbon is Black 3/8” Glittered Organdy Ribbon (#147897).

Enjoy your day.

So Many Stars Bundle


Gold and White always looks so stunning and I love how this card turned out.

I used Whisper White card (#106549), Gold Foil Sheets (#132622) and Gold Glimmer Paper (#146958). The card front was embossed with a retired embossing folder (Softly Falling). I stamped the star and the sentiment on Whisper White card with Crushed Curry Ink (#147087). Season’s Greetings is from the Itty Bitty stamp set (#c150513) and the star is from So Many Stars stamp set. The stars and the detailed cutout were cut with the Stitched Stars Dies. I cut the detailed cutout in half and spread it apart so I could see more of it, rather than the stars covering too much of it.  The sentiment was punched with the Classic Label punch (#141491). The sentiment and Gold star were attached with Stampin Dimensionals (#104430) and the Gold glimmer star on top was attached with a Mini Glue Dot (#103683). The small solid stars come from the detailed cutout and placed onto the cardfront.

Have a fantastic day.

Hi again,

For today’s Christmas card I have used the Christmas Gleaming Bundle (#c153006) which consists of the Christmas Gleaming stamp set (#c150464) and the Gleaming Ornaments Punch Pack (#150647).

The Wrapped In Plaid 6”x6” Specialty Designer Series Paper (#149596) was attached to the Whisper White Base card (#106549). The Whisper White card front was attached to Cherry Cobbler card (#121681) and the Cherry Cobbler 3/8” Diagonal Stripe Ribbon (#150439) was wrapped around this. The baubles from the Christmas Gleaming stamp set were stamped with Cherry Cobbler ink (#147083) on Whisper White card and punched with the co-ordinating Gleaming Ornaments punch. Merry Christmas is also from the Christmas Gleaming stamp set and I used Cherry Cobbler ink. The holly was stamped with Shaded Spruce ink (#147088) on Call Me Clover card (#146992), then fussy cut. I added the Toile Tidings Glitter Enamel Dots (#150433) to the holly. The baubles and holly leaves were attached with Stampin’ Dimensionals (#104430). I used the Clear Wink Of Stella Brush (#141897) to add some glitter to the holly leaves.

Have a great day.
