The Gang’s All Meer

Welcome,

The Gang’s All Meer stamp set (#c152294) is just so cute, and I love meerkats and could watch them all day with their antics. This stamp set is from Sale-a-bration, so a free set with a $90 order (in Australia).




This is a very easy card with a bit of stamping and colouring with Stampin’ Blends. I stamped the group of Meerkats with Tuxedo Black Memento ink (#132708). Then I cut the “label” from the Very Vanilla card front (#106550) and stamped the single Meerkat. A Stitched So Sweetly Die (#151690) was used to cut this. The meerkats were coloured with Light & Dark Crumb Cake Stampin’ Blends (#144601) and I used Light & Dark Soft Suede Stampin’ Blends (#147273) for the ground. “Thank You” from Timeless Tropical stamp set (#c151497) was stamped with Merry Merlot ink (#147112). The cardfront was attached to the Merry Merlot card base (#147005), then the cutout with the single Meerkat was attached with Stampin’ Dimensionals (#104430), where it was cut from. 


Enjoy your weekend.

Timeless Tropical Bundle

Hi again friends,

Looking for something tropical, well here it is with the Timeless Tropical Bundle (#c153811).




Very Vanilla card (#106550) was used for the base card and also for all the stamping. All the stamped images are from the Timeless Tropical stamp set (#c151497). I stamped the trees with Sahara Sand ink (#147117) and again with Granny Apple Green ink (#147095). These were cut with a die from the In The Tropics Dies (#151495). I then cut the trunks from the green trees and the top of the trees were attached on top of the other trees with Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals (#144108). The sentiment was stamped with Granny Apple Green ink and the frangipani with Daffodil Delight (#104430). The flower and leaves were cut with In The Tropics Dies. I used Granny Apple Green card (#147014) and Garden Green card (#108605) for the leaves. The sentiment was cut with Stitched Nested Labels Dies (#149638). The “frame” was cut with the Stitched Rectangles Dies (#148551) using Tropical Oasis Designer Series Paper (#151252). The background behind the trees was stamped with Seaside Spray ink (150085) using Bokeh Dots stamp set (#c148113).

I hope you are enjoying all the beautiful products from the 2020 Mini catalogue and Sale-a-bration.

Hello again everyone,

The Honey Bee Bundle (#151526) co-ordinates with the Golden Honey Specialty Designer Series Paper (#152311) from Sale-a-bration. This beautiful DSP has gold accents on one side of each of the papers.




The yellow & white designer paper is from the Best Dressed 6”x6” Designer Series Paper (#151319). The black & gold is from the Golden Honey Specialty Designer Series Paper. I cut the hexagons with a die from the Detailed Bee Dies (#151526) from Gold Foil Sheet (#132622). I glued the hexagons to the DSP using the Fine -Tip Glue Pen (#138309). I used Basic Black card (#121688) and Gold Foil Sheet for the bee which was cut with a die also from the Honey Bee Dies. “Celebrate every moment” is from the Honey Bee stamp set (#151527), then cut with an Ornate Frames Die (#150664) and attached with Stampin’ Dimensionals (#104430). This was stamped with Tuxedo Black Memento ink (#132708). The body of the bee was glued to the card with the Fine-Tip Glue Pen.

Best Dressed Designer Series Paper

Hello & welcome,

It is so easy to make a quick and easy card with beautiful Designer Series Paper and a sentiment. I have used Best Dressed 6”x6” DSP (#151319), but of course you could use anything you already have.




I cut this sheet to the desired size, then cut a piece 3.5cm long ways and flipped it over to use the reverse side at the bottom of the card. I added the Gold Shimmer Ribbon (#152156) along where I joined the paper. This ribbon was part of the Christmas Time Is Here Suite, and is still available to order. The sentiment is from Peaceful Moments stamp set (#c151595) and stamped with Blackberry Bliss ink (#147092) on Whisper White Card (#106549). This card and the Blackberry Bliss card were cut with dies from the Stitched So Sweetly Dies (#151690) and attached to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals (#104430). The Gold Glitter Enamel Dots (#152155) are also from Christmas Time Is Here suite and also still available. The Designer Series paper was attached to Blackberry Bliss card and the base card is Whisper White. 

So easy!!!

Did you know that some of the dies from the Detailed Bee Dies (#151526) in the 2020 Mini catalogue, will cut bee images and flowers from the Golden Honey Specialty Designer Series Paper (#152311) which is from Sale-a-bration? I love the co-ordination of Stampin’ Up! products.

The Basic Black card (#121688) was embossed with the Coastal Weave 3D Embossing Folder (#151503), then attached to Gold Foil Sheet (#132622).

The base card is Whisper White (#106549) and the flowers were also stamped on Whisper White card. The hibiscus was stamped with VersaMark (#102283) and embossed with Gold Stampin’ Emboss Powder (#109129) and set with the Heat Tool (#129056) I then coloured this with Dark & Light Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Blends (#144603) and Light Real Red Stampin’ Blends (#147933) for the stamen.

I punched it a second time to make it a bit smaller, then punched a piece of Pear Pizzaz card, which I placed behind the slightly smaller sentiment. This was attached to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals (#104430) and I added a bow made with the Mossy Meadow Linen Thread from the Magnolia Lane Ribbon Combo Pack (#149485). The Holiday Rhinestone Basic Jewels (#150457) were added to the card and flowers.

Happy Australia Day.

Music From The Heart

Hi again,

I guess we all tend to get a new product, use it for a while then sometimes forget about it when new products come out. I think this is what I did with the Pigment Sprinkles (#149663), but I starting using them a couple of weeks ago and am loving playing with them again. One thing I love about them is you never get the same results twice.




There are 6 colours of sprinkles in the box - Bermuda Bay, Daffodil Delight, Granny Apple Green, Gorgeous Grape, Mango Melody and Melon Mambo. You can use one or a combination of colours. Even when using just one colour you can get other colours appear once water is added to the sprinkles. I used Bermuda Bay Sprinkles on the Whisper White (#106549) background for this card. After spraying it with water and drying it with the Heat Tool (#129056), I then embossed this card with the Parisian Flourish 3D Embossing Folder (#151474). This was the spritzed with Frost White Shimmer Paint (#147046) to give it a lovely shimmer. Happy Birthday and the 2 images were stamped with Tuxedo Black Memento ink (#132708) and the 2 images were fussy cut. These are all from the Music From The Heart stamp set (#151674). The Bermuda Bay card (#131286) was used for the base, the strip under the sentiment and the circle. The circle was cut with a Layering Circles Die (#141705). Stampin’ Dimensionals (#104430) were used to attach the images to the card and I added Holiday Rhinestone Basic Jewels (#150457).

I hope you are enjoying your long weekend.




Positive Thoughts

Hi everyone,

I love the images and sentiments in the Positive Thoughts stamp set (#151490) and now these beautiful images can be cut with the coordinating Nature’s Thoughts Dies (#153586), which will be available to order from 4th February.




I have used Whisper White card (#106549) and Granny Apple Green (#147014). I also cut Champagne Foil Sheet (#144748) with a die from the Painted Labels Dies (#151605), then I cut it in half - you can see a small amount of it under the flowers and butterfly. I stamped the fern onto the background using Soft Sea Foam ink (#147102). Then I stamped another 2 images using Granny Apple Green ink (#147095) on separate card and cut them with a Nature’s Thoughts Die. The butterfly was stamped with Pacific Point ink (#147098) and the flowers with Real Red ink (#147084) and Pumpkin Pie ink (#147086). These were all cut with the Nature’s Thoughts Dies as well as the detailed border. The sentiment was stamped with Granny Apple Green ink and cut with a Stitched Rectangles Die (#148551). Stampin’ Dimensionals (#104430) were used to attach the butterfly, flowers and sentiment. The jewels are from the Noble Peacocks Rhinestones (#149494) and Holiday Rhinestone Basic Jewels (#150457).

Enjoy your weekend.

Poppy Moments Dies with Pigment Sprinkles

Hello,

I love it when a card comes together so easily. I was cleaning up (a never ending job around here) as I always have “leftovers”. As I moved a piece of card, these outlines of the poppies were sitting on this card which I had coloured with Pigment Sprinkles, and thought, that would be a lovely card. So here it is.




I had lightly sprinkled the Mango Melody and Daffodil Delight Pigment Sprinkles (149663) onto a piece of Shimmery White card (#121717). This was then sprayed  with water using a Stampin’ Spritzer (#126185), then I used the Heat Tool (#129056) to set and dry it. The poppies were cut with the Poppy Moments Dies (#151594) from Basic Black card (#121688) and I glued them to the card with the Fine-Tip Glue Pen (#138309). The centres of the poppies are from Mango Melody card (#147013). “Happy Birthday” from the Peaceful Moments stamp set (#151595) was stamped with VersaMark (#102283) and embossed with Black Stampin’ Emboss Powder (#146956) and set with the Heat Tool. I used a die from the Stitched So Sweetly Dies (#151690) to cut the sentiment and sponged the edges with Mango Melody ink (#147093). This was attached to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals (#104430). The ribbon is Whisper White 1/4” Crinkled Seam Binding (#151326) and the Holiday Rhinestone Basic Jewels (#150457) adds a sparkle to the card. Whisper White card (#106549) was used for the base and Basic Black to matt the card front.


Enjoy your day.

Painted Poppies Bundle

Hi & Welcome,

Yes, I do love the poppies in the 2020 Mini catalogue. There are 2 bundles with poppies, designer series paper and lots more. Here I have used the Painted Poppies Bundle (#c153827).




I used Whisper White card (#106549) for the base and the card front. For the background I sprinkled the Granny Apple Green Pigment Sprinkles (#149663) onto the card, then normally I would spritz with water, but this time I spritz it with Frosted White Shimmer Paint (#147046) which gives a lovely shine to the card, as well as activating the sprinkles. I used the Heat Tool (#129056) to dry the card. Remember, you only need a small amount if pigment sprinkles - a little goes a long way. The Peaceful Poppies Designer Series Paper (#151324) was attached to the card front as well as the Real Red 3/8” Double-Stitched Satin Ribbon (#151155). The poppies from the Painted Poppies stamp set (#151599) were stamped with Tuxedo Black Memento ink (#132708) onto Real Red card (#106578). The leaves were stamped with Granny Apple Green ink (#147095) onto Granny Apple Green card (#147014). The poppies and leaves were cut with the Painted Labels Dies (#151605). I added some glitter to the centre of the poppies with the Clear Wink Of Stella Glitter Brush (#141897). The sentiment is from the Peaceful Moments stamp set (#151595) and stamped with Real Red ink (#147084) and cut with another of the Painted Labels Dies. The sentiment and the 2 small poppies were attached with Stampin’ Dimensionals (#104430).

I hope you are enjoying all the new products in the Mini Catalogue as well as Sale-a-bration like I am.

Have a great day.


Birthday Dies and Happy Birthday To You

Hello,

I have used the Birthday Dies (#153590) which coordinate with the Happy Birthday To You stamp set (#152308), and these dies will be available on 4th February.




The base card is Whisper White (#106549). I stamped the splotches on the background with So Saffron ink (#147108). The Designer Series Paper is from the Golden Honey Specialty Designer Series Paper (#152311) and the blue card is Seaside Spray (#150889). I stamped the cake & flower image twice, using VersaMark (#102283) and embossed them with Gold Stampin’ Emboss Powder (#109129). One die cut the whole cake and the another die cut the flowers from the second image. I coloured the cake with Light So Saffron Stampin’ Blends (#149555). The flowers were coloured with Light & Dark Seaside Spray Stampin’ Blends (#149569), Light & Dark Mint Macaron Stampin’ Blends (#147283) and Dark Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Blends (#144585). I used Gold Foil Sheet (#132622) for the cake stand which was also cut with a die from the Birthday Dies. “Celebrate” was stamped with Seaside Spray ink (#150085), then cut with a Stitched Rectangles Die (#148551). The cake stand, sentiment and flowers were attached with Stampin’ Dimensionals (#104430) and Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals (#144108). I finished the card with Holiday Rhinestone Basic Jewels (#150457).

Have a great day.

Thoughtful Blooms

Hi,

I decided to make a “Simple stamping” card . Most cards I make use dies and/or embossing, so I restricted what I used for this one. I did use a punch for the flower.




The cardstock is Flirty Flamingo (#141421) and Very Vanilla (#106550). The inks used are Flirty Flamingo (#147052), Garden Green (#147089), Pear Pizzaz (#147104) and So Saffron (#147109). “Happy Birthday” is from the Happy Birthday To You stamp set (#152308) and all the other images are from the Thoughtful Blooms stamp set (#152290). The flower in the centre was stamped then punched with the Small Bloom Punch (#152316) and attached with a Stampin’ Dimensional (#104430). Both these stamp sets and the punch are from Sale-a-bration. I added the Rhinestone Basic Jewels (#144220) which I coloured with Dark Flirty Flamingo Stampin’ Blends (#147032) before adhering to the card.

Yes, that was simple.

Have a great day.

Happy Birthday To You with Birthday Dies

Hello Ladies & Guys,

On 4th February, there will be 5 sets of dies and some Designer Series Paper available in the Coordination Product Release, and as the name suggests, they coordinate with stamp sets and punches that are available in the 2020 Mini catalogue and Sale-a-bration catalogue. An advantage of being a demonstrator is that we can purchase these products earlier, so couldn’t resist using them today.





Here I have used one of the dies from the Birthday Dies (#153590) which coordinates with the Happy Birthday To You stamp set (#152308) from Sale-a-bration. I love how you can just use the flowers and not the whole image with the cake, or you can layer each of the images.
The cardstock is Whisper White (#106549). I stamped Happy Birthday from the Happy Birthday Stamp set using Flirty Flamingo ink (#147052). I then embossed the card front with the Scripty 3D Embossing Folder (#149634). The flowers were stamped with Tuxedo Black Memento ink (#132708) and coloured with Stampin’ Blends. I used Dark & Light Flirty Flamingo (#147278), Dark & Light Soft Sea Foam (#148059) and Dark Daffodil Delight (#144585). The Birthday Dies were used to cut the flowers and leaves. I used Soft sea Foam card (#147012) for the leaves. The leaves were glued with the Fine-Tip Glue Pen (#138309) and the flowers attached with Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals (#144108). Holiday Rhinestones Basic Jewels (#150457) were added to the card.


Have a great week.

Kerchief Card Kit

Welcome everyone,

I am just loving all the products from Sale-a-bration and the Kerchief Card Kit (#152319) is a great kit which allows you to make a card in just minutes.







This is an all inclusive card kit which gives you 8 cards, 4 of each design and includes envelopes as well. The kit includes the printed card bases, printed die cuts, gold foil and vellum accents, twine and adhesive. There are sentiments in English, French & German. So you could use just the elements in the kit or you could add your own elements for something different. In the first photo, for the 2 red cards at the top , I used elements from the kit only. The other 2 cards I added elements from the Peaceful Poppies Elements (#151327). In the 2nd photo I used all the elements from the kit, but added Glitter to the flower with the Clear Wink Of Stella Glitter Brush (#141897) and one of the cards I added the Noble Peacock Rhinestones (#149494). For the top left card I cut the Vellum with the gold dots and punched the ends with the Banner Triple Punch (#138292).

This kit is great for the busy crafter or the ideal gift for someone new to card making. Note there is no stamping required on these cards - it’s all done for you.

Have a great day.

Music From the Heart

Hi again,

Music From The Heart stamp set (#151674) is a great set especially for those who are musical.





I used Shimmery White card (#121717) as this is perfect for watercolouring and as I was using the Pigment Sprinkles (#149663) and needing to add water, this was my choice. Fluid 100 Watercolour Paper (#149612) would be the other option. I sprinkled Gorgeous Grape and Melon Mambo sprinkles onto the card. Remember a small amount goes a long way. Then I spritzed the paper with water till I got the required effect, and used the Heat Tool (#129056) to dry it. If you have time you can let it air dry. I then stamped the musical images from the Music From The Heart stamp set using Tuxedo Black Memento Ink (#132708) onto the background and the tiny hearts with Gorgeous Grape ink. On another piece of  Shimmery White card I stamped the sentiment and piano with Gorgeous Grape ink (#147099). I coloured the “heart” on the piano with the Light Purple Posy Stampin’ Blends (#149564). I cut this card with a Stitched Rectangles Die (#148551) and this was matted with Gorgeous Grape card (#147011), then attached with Stampin’ Dimensionals (#104430). The Gorgeous Grape rhinestones from the Noble Peacock Rhinestones (#149494) were added to the card.

The weekend is upon again already. Where does the week go?

Have a great weekend.

Honey Bee Bundle

Hi friends,

The Honey Bee Bundle (#c153792) from the 2020 Mini catalogue co-ordinates beautifully with the Golden Honey Specialty Series Paper (#152311) which is one of the Sale-a-bration products, and I have used both on this card.





The base card is Whisper White (#106549). The 2 pieces of Designer Paper are from the Golden Honey Specialty DSP (#152311). This designer paper has black and white images with Gold accents on some of the designs. The “honeycomb” paper was cut with the rectangle from the Nature’s Thoughts Dies (#153586) which will be available on 4th February. The beehive from the Honey Bee Stamp Set (#c151527) was stamped with So Saffron ink (#147109). “Happy Birthday” from the Peaceful Moments stamp set (#c151595), was stamped with VersaMark (#102283) and embossed with Black Stampin’ Emboss Powder (#146956), then set with the Heat Tool (#129056). This was cut with a die from Stitched So Sweetly Dies (#151690). I used Basic Black card (#121688) for the bee and glued the body of the bee to the card with the Fine- I cut another bee from Gold Foil Sheet (#132622) and used the small pieces from the body which would normally be removed, and glued them in position of the black bee. Stampin Dimensionals (#104430) were used to attach the sentiment and beehive. The bee and beehive were cut using the Detailed Bee Dies (#151526)

Enjoy your day whatever you are doing.

Happy Birthday To You

Welcome everyone,

The Happy Birthday To You Stamp Set (#c152308) is another Sale-a-bration product and includes this beautiful birthday cake. I know you all love co-ordinating dies, and the Birthday Dies (#153590) which cut out various elements of this image will be available to order from 4th February.





The base card is Whisper White (#106549) and I added the Gold Foil Sheet (#132622) to the right side. This was embossed with the Coastal Weave 3D Embossing Folder (#151503). I cut the Soft Sea Foam card (#147012) with the Stitched Rectangles Dies (#148551). The birthday cake was stamped with VersaMark (#102283) and embossed with Gold Stampin’ Emboss Powder (#109129). The flowers were coloured with Petal Pink Combo Stampin’ Blends (#147272), the leaves with Soft Sea Foam Combo Stampin’ Blends (#148059) and the berries/buds with Light Calypso Coral Stampin’ Blends (#144042). Shimmer was added to the flowers with the Clear Wink Of Stella Glitter Brush (#141897). This was then cut with a Stitched So Sweetly Dies (#151690). “Celebrate” is from the Itty Bitty Greetings stamp set (#c151331) and also Gold embossed. This was cut with a die from the Ornate Frames Dies (#150664). The die only has a hole in one end as well as the little cut outs in the corners, so I turned the die around and cut it a second time so it was the same on both ends. I then threaded the Mossy Meadow Linen Thread from the Magnolia Lane Ribbon Combo Pack (#149485) through the holes and attached the sentiment to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals (#104430). The embellishments are from the Christmastime Is Here Suite Bundle (153947) and this gorgeous suite is still available.

Check out all the co-ordinating products coming on 4th February here


Have a great day.

The Gang’s All Meer

Hello,

I just adore meerkats and could watch them all day, so was thrilled to see this stamp set - The Gang’s All Meer (#152294) from Sale-a-bration.





I stamped the meerkats onto Very Vanilla card (#106550) using Soft Suede ink (#147115), then I coloured the group of meerkats with Dark & Light Crumb Cake Stampin’ Blends (#144601). The sentiment was stamped with Crushed Curry ink (#147087). The Designer Series Paper is Best Dressed 6”x6” (#151319) and the ribbon is  5/8” Burlap Ribbon (#141487). I used the Stitched Nested Labels (#149638) to cut the Very Vanilla card with the Meerkats and the Soft Suede card (#119982). This was attached with Stampin’ Dimensionals (#104430).

Have a great day.

Honey Bee Bundle

Welcome friends,

I have just received the Honey Bee Bundle (#c153792) and had to immediately make a cake with it. We have a couple of bee hives so was excited when this set was in the catalogue. There is also Designer Series Paper - Golden Honey Specialty DSP (#152311) which is part of Sale-a-bration and co-ordinates with this bundle, however I haven’t used it on this card.




The cardstock is Very Vanilla (#106550) and Basic Black (#121688). I used Gold Foil Sheet (#132622) for the hexagons, Vellum (#106584) for the bee and I added this bee to a bee cut from Daffodil Delight card (#121680). All the images are from the Honey Bee stamp set (#c151527). For the flowers and leaves I applied Crushed Curry and Old Olive from the Regals Stampin’ Write Markers (#147155) before stamping. The bee was stamped with Jet Black StazOn ink (#101406). I coloured the body of the bee with Crushed Curry Stampin’ Write Marker as well as making the black a bit darker on the body using the Basic Black Stampin’ Write Marker (#100082). I attached the stamped bee to a bee cut from Daffodil Delight card using Mini Glue Dots (#103683) then the bee was attached to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals (#104430). I glued the flowers and hexagons with the Fine-Tip Glue Pen (#138309). The card front was embossed with the Stone 3D embossing folder, part of the Power Of Hope Bundle (#152318) from Sale-a-bration. The sentiment was cut with a Stitched So Sweetly die (#151690), then matted with Basic Black card. The Detailed Bee Dies (#151526) were used to cut the bee, hexagons and flowers. The ribbon is Gold Metallic-Edge Ribbon (#144146).

Enjoy whatever you are doing today - hopefully something crafty!!


Thoughtful Blooms Stamp set from Sale-a-Bration

Hello,

All of the stamped images here are from the Thoughtful Blooms Stamp Set (#152290) and is one of the free products from Sale-a-bration (with a $90 order). 





I embossed the Whisper White card (#106549) with the Stone 3D Embossing Folder, which is part of Power Of Hope Bundle (#152318) and also part of Sale-a-bration. Before embossing the card I wiped the Golden Glitz Delicata Metallic Ink (#150711) over one side of the folder, which gave a subtle colour in the grooves of the embossing. This was attached to the Crushed Curry base card (#131288). The flowers and leaves were stamped with Poppy Parade ink (#147050), Pear Pizzaz ink (#147104), Pacific Point ink (#147098), Real Red ink (#147084) and Crushed Curry ink (#147087). “Thank You” and the Crushed Curry card behind the sentiment was cut with dies from the Stitched So Sweetly Dies (#151690). I used the Braided Border Punch (#151294) for the detailed border piece. I attached the stamped rectangle card with Stampin’ Dimensionals (#104430), then added the Red Rhinestones Basic Jewels (#146934) to add a bit of bling to the card.


Have a great day.

Painted Poppies

Hi and welcome,

Another gorgeous stamp set in the 2020 Mini Catalogue is Painted Poppies (#c151599).




I stamped the poppies with Tuxedo Black Memento ink (#132708) on Whisper White card (#106549) and coloured them with Real Red Stampin’ Blends Combo (#147935). The sentiment which is from the Peaceful Moments stamp set (#151595) was stamped with Real Red ink (#147084). The sentiment, the Basic Black card (#121688) and the Real Red card (#106578) were cut with the Stitched Nested Labels (#149638) and these were attached to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals (#104430). Red Rhinestone Basic Jewels (#146924) were added to the sentiment. The cardfront was matted with Basic Black card, then attached to the Whisper White Card. The detailed border along the bottom of the card was cut with a die from the Painted Labels Dies (#151605) using Real Red card and glued to the card with Fine-Tip Glue Pen (#138309).

Have a great day.

Lily Impressions Designer Series Paper and Sale-a-bration

Hi everyone,

I just love these lilies and this is a variation of a card I did last week.





The card base, lilies and detailed border are Highland Heather card (#147010). The Whisper White (#106549) cardfront has been embossed with the Parisian Flourish 3D Embossing Folder (#151474). The Lily Impressions Designer Series Paper (#152284) was cut with the largest rectangle from the Stitched So Sweetly Dies (#151690). I stamped the lilies from the Lovely Lily Pad Stamp Set (#152288) with VersaMark (#102283) and embossed with the Shimmer White Stampin’ Emboss Powder (#149511). This was set with the Heat Tool (#129056). The lily pad was stamped with Shaded Spruce ink (#147088) onto Shaded Spruce card (#147006). The lilies, lily pad and detailed border were cut with dies from the Lily Pad Dies (#152315). “Happy Birthday” is from the Peaceful Moments stamp set (#151595) and stamped with Blackberry Bliss ink (#147092). This was cut with a Stitched So Sweetly Die. The larger lily and sentiment were attached to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals (#104430) and I used Mini Glue Dots (#103683) to attach the border. 

The Lovely Lily Pad stamp set, the Lily Pad Dies and the Lily Impressions Designer Series Paper are all free products from Sale-a-bration with a qualifying order.


Have a great day.

Lovely Lily Pad stamp set and Lily Pad Dies

Hello friends,

I have surprised myself and finished another scrapbook page. It’s a simple one but I love it.




The background page is Whisper White 12”x12” cardstock (#124302). The coloured card is Gorgeous Grape (#147011) and Highland Heather (#147010). I stamped the lilies from the Lovely Lily Pad stamp set (#152288) with VersaMark (#102283) and used White Stampin’ Emboss Powder (#109132) and set it with the Heat Tool (#129056). These were then cut with the co-ordinating Lily Pad Dies (#152315). I also cut the detailed border pieces with the dies as well as the Gorgeous Grape outline of the lily, which I glued onto the stamped lily in the bottom corner of the page. The photo and 2 matts for the photos were cut with the Stitched Rectangles Dies (#148551). As I said, this is a very easy page, but elegant. 

The Lovely Lily Pad Dies and the Lily Pad Stamp set are both free products from Sale-a-bration. I am sure these will be on your wish list. The stamp set is with a $90 order and the dies with a $180 order.

I hope you are enjoying your weekend and doing some crafting.
