To A Wild Rose

Welcome friends,

Here’s another stamp set which I haven’t used for some time, don’t know why, as the roses are beautiful.




The stamp set is To A Wild Rose (#c149452). I stamped one rose with Gorgeous Grape (#147099) and Highland Heather (#147103). This is a 2 step stamp, so I stamped the outline with Gorgeous Grape, the second layer with Highland Heather then the background layer with Highland Heather which I stamped off for that lighter image. This was then cut with the co-ordinating die from the Wild Rose Dies (#149547). Then I stamped the Bermuda Bay rose onto the card front. The outline was stamped with Bermuda Bay ink (#147096), the next layer with Coastal Cabana ink (#147097), then the 3rd layer with stamped off Coastal Cabana ink. I used the die to cut out the rose to cut a piece of post-it notes and used this as a mask over the Bermuda Bay rose. This allowed me to stamp the next rose without it stamping over the top of the other rose. I used Crushed Curry ink (#147087) for the outline, then So Saffron ink (#147109) for the 2nd layer and stamped off So Saffron for the background. I then embossed the Whisper White card (#106549) with the Subtle 3D Embossing Folder (#151775). This was attached to the Gorgeous Grape card (#147011) then Purple Posy card (#150887). The purple flower was attached with Stampin’ Dimensionals (#104430). The Whisper White 5/8” Flax Ribbon (#148764) was attached to the card with Mini Glue Dots (#103683) and the sentiment was also attached with Dimensionals. Happy Birthday is from the Peaceful Moments stamp set (#c151595), stamped with Gorgeous Grape ink then cut with a Stitched So Sweetly die (#151690). The embellishments are 2019-2021 In Color Faceted Dots (#149607.

Painted Poppies

Hello,

A simple card, but I thought was very pretty just in red, black and white.




The cardstock is Whisper White (#106549) and Basic Black (#121688). I embossed the cardfront with the Ornate Floral Embossing Folder (#152725), then wrapped the Real Red 3/8” Double-Stitched Satin Ribbon (#151155) around the card. I stamped the poppies from the Painted Poppies stamp set (#151599) using Tuxedo Black Memento ink (#132708). I coloured the poppies with Stampin’ Blends - Real Red combo (#147935) and Poppy Parade combo (#147275). This was cut with a Stitched So Sweetly Die (#151690), then attached to the Basic Black card. This was attached to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals (#104430). “Sent with love” is from the Itty Bitty Greetings stamp set (#146667) and stamped with Real Red ink (#147084), then cut with a die from the Ornate Frames (#150664). The Red Rhinestones Basic Jewels (#146924) were added to the sentiment and card.

Best Dressed designer Series Paper

Hi friends,

When you need a quick and easy card, using designer series paper is the answer. I am sure you all have plenty of excess to use, just like I do. I have used the Best Dressed 6”x6” Designer Series Paper (#151319).




I attached the Designer Series Paper to the Whisper White base card (#106549). I stamped the sentiment from Dandelion Wishes stamp set (#151345) using Blackberry Bliss ink (#147092), then cut this with one of the dies from the Layering Circles (#141705). I attached this to the swirly die cut Blackberry Bliss card (#133682). This was cut with a Painted Labels Die (#151605) and Stampin’ Dimensionals (#104430) were used to attach this to the card. The ribbon is Purple Posy 1/2” Scalloped Linen Ribbon (#149706).

As I said, quick and easy.

Stay safe and keep crafting!!

Daisy Lane stamp set

Hello everyone,

This is a lovely bright and cheerful card which is just what we need at this time. I have used the daisies from the Daisy Lane stamp set (#c149325).





The cardstock for the base card, the flowers and the leaves is Very Vanilla (#106550). I used the So Saffron vellum from the Periannial Essence 12”x12” Vellum cardstock (#149101). I cut the edge of the velum with the Ornate Borders Dies (#152724), then embossed it with the Scripty 3D Embossing Folder (#149634). I  stamped each daisy twice with Mango Melody ink (#147093) and punched them with the Daisy Punch (#143713) and the Medium Daisy punch (#149517). These were assembled using Stampin’ Dimensionals (#104430) and Mini Glue Dots (#103683). The leaves were stamped with Granny Apple Green ink (#147095), then fussy cut. These leaves are also from the Daisy Lane stamp set. “Thank You” is from Peaceful Moments stamp set (#c151595). I stamped this using the Stamparatus (#148187), and Granny Apple Green ink. Then I re-stamped the sentiment with VersaMark (#102283) and added Clear Stampin’ Emboss Powder (#109130) which was heat set with the Heat Tool (#129056). This is a way of embossing any colour ink but you must not move your card in between stamping. I added some shimmer to the daisies using the Clear Wink Of Stella Brush (#141897) and added the Glitter Enamel Dots (#146934) to the flower centre and card.


Stay safe and keep stamping!!

Perennial Essence Designer Series Paper

Hi again,

It’s the start of another week, but everyday seems the same these days, but hopefully things will start to slowly change soon.

The beautiful Perennial Essence Designer Series Paper (#149100) has been used for the cardfront. All the Designer Papers from the Annual catalogue are retiring, so if you want any make sure you place your order soon.





The DSP was attached to the Highland Heather card (#147010), then this was attached to the Gorgeous Grape base card (#147011). I cut the detailed border using the Lily Pad Dies which were available during Sale-A-Bration. The leaves are cut with a die from the Garden Gateway Dies (#151512) and I used Shaded Spruce card (#147006). The Fine-Tip Glue Pen (#138309) was used to glue the leaves and border to the card. Thinking Of You is from Rooted In Nature stamp set (#146482) and I stamped it with Gorgeous Grape ink (#147099). The 2 scalloped circles from the Layering Circles Dies (#141705) cut the circles, then these were attached with Stampin’ Dimensionals (#104430). I used 3 of the Noble Peacock Rhinestones (#149494) in the lower right corner.

Timeless Tropical

Hi again,

Night Of Navy ink (#147110) was used for the sentiment. I stamped the flower with Pumpkin Pie ink (#147086) onto Pumpkin Pie card (#108601) and the leaves were stamped with Pear Pizzaz ink (#147104) on Whisper White card. The leaves and flower were cut with dies from In The Tropics (#151495). The rectangular Whisper White and Pumpkin Pie cards were cut with Stitched So Sweetly dies (#151690). The Designer Series Paper is Night Of Navy from the Neutrals 6” x 6” DSP. The small piece behind the flower is the reverse side of the same paper. The flower was attached with Stampin’ Dimensionals (#104430) and I added the Holiday Rhinestone Basic Jewels (#150457). I used the Clear Wink Of Stella (#141897) on the flower for a bit of sparkle.

Fanciful Fragrance

Hi friends,

It is easy to forget some of the smaller images in a stamp set, and this flower is one that I think I have only used inside a card.







These flowers are from the Fanciful Fragrance stamp set (#c149281) and I stamped them with Crumb Cake ink (#147116). Using the Stamparatus (#148187) makes it very easy to align the images.

The cardfront was embossed with the Tin Tile 3D Embossing Folder (#151801). The leaves and buds were cut with the Birthday Dies (#153590) and attached to the card with the Fine-Tip Glue Pen (#138309). The sentiment from Peaceful Moments stamp set (#c151595) was stamped with VersaMark (#102283) and Gold Stampin’ Emboss Powder (#109129) was added and set with the Heat Tool (#129056).

Birthday scrapbook page

Hi and welcome friends,

Today I made this scrapbook page using current and retired products. I find scrapbooking is often a way of using retired products, especially Designer Series Paper which we all have so much of.





This DSP is retired but was just perfect for this birthday celebration. Happy Birthday is cut with  the retired Happy Birthday die. This sentiment and the letters for the names were cut from Basic Black card (#121688). The photos were matted on Champagne Foil Sheet (#144748) and Basic Black card. The balloons were punched with the Balloon Bouquet Punch (#140609). I used Champagne Foil, Night Of Navy card (#106577) and Lovely Lipstick card (#146993) for the balloons and embossed them with the Hammered Metal 3D Embossing Folder (#150646). The string for the balloons is also a retired silver cord.

I am hoping over the coming months I will get a lot more scrapbooking done. I will never run out of photos.

Stay safe and keep crafting!!

Free As A Bird

Hello again,

As you know, I love to use embossing folders, embossing powders and dies on most of my cards, so today I challenged myself not to use any of these with this simple stamping card.




I brayered on WhisperWhite card (#106549) using Seaside Spray ink (#150085), Grapefruit Grove ink (#147142), So Saffron ink (#147109) and Soft Sea Foam ink (#147102). The bird image from Free As A Bird stamp set (#c149468) and “Happy Birthday” from Perennial Birthday stamp set (#151240) were both stamped with Tuxedo Black Memento ink (#132708). The card front was attached to Basic Black card (#121688) then onto Grapefruit Grove card base (#146995). I couldn’t resist adding some Iridescent Sequins (#144212) to the card.

Today’s job in self isolation was to clean out and de clutter some cupboards as well as sorting out the freezer. Another productive day.

Stay safe and keep crafting!

The flowers also from the Royal Peacock stamp set was stamped with Pretty Peacock ink and cut with a die from the Detailed Peacock Dies.

Fanciful Fragrance

Hi everyone,

When new products arrive it is easy to forget some of the products in the annual catalogue, so today I am using the Fanciful Fragrance stamp set (#c149281), but I have combined it with an embossing folder from the current mini catalogue.




I was wanting a vintage look for this card and thought the Parisian Flourish 3D Embossing Folder (#151474) was perfect. After embossing the Very Vanilla card (#106550), I sponged Crumb Cake ink (#147116) which highlighted the embossed areas. The perfume bottles from the Fanciful Fragrance stamp set were stamped with Soft Suede ink (#147115) then fussy cut. “Happy Birthday” from Peaceful Moments stamp set (#c151595) was stamped with Pretty Peacock ink (#150083). This card was attached to Pretty Peacock card (#150886). The base card is also Pretty Peacock. The photo doesn’t show it’s real colour for some odd reason. The Very Vanilla Scalloped Lace Trim (#149593) was coloured with Crumb Cake ink using a Sponge Dauber (#133773). Pretty Peacock rhinestones from the Noble Peacock Rhinestones (#149494) finished off the card.


Stay safe and keep crafting.

Ornate Style Bundle

Hello again & welcome,

Perhaps you have realised by now how much I love this new Ornate Garden Suite (#154153), as here is yet another card using these gorgeous products.




The base card is Daffodil Delight (#121680) and the card front is Whisper White (#106549). The white card was cut with the Ornate Layers Dies (#152726). The flowers are from the Ornate Style stamp set (#c152572) and stamped with Tuxedo Black Memento ink (#132708) then fussy cut. The Blender Pens used are Daffodil Delight Combo (#144603), Purple Posy Combo (#149566), Flirty Flamingo Combo (#147278), Seaside Spray Combo (#149569), Old Olive Combo (#144574) and Ivory (#144606). Some of the flowers were attached to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals (#104430). The bow is cut with a retired die (All The Presents) from Gold Glimmer Paper  (#146958). “Your amazing” is a sentiment from the Ornate Thanks stamp set (#152488) and stamped with Daffodil Delight ink (#147094). I added some glitter with the Clear Wink Of Stella Brush (#141897) to the flower centres.

Have a relaxing weekend.

Stay safe & keep crafting.
