Game On stamp set

Hi and welcome,

Time for another masculine card. The Game On stamp set (#152646) is great for the man in your life.




The designer series paper is World Of Good Specialty DSP (#152491). This pack has antique designs and textures with Brass Foil designs on some of the sheets. The black with brass foil designer paper was cut with the Stitched Triangle Dies (#152710). I stamped an image from the Game On stamp set onto the Bumble Bee coloured DSP, using Sahara Sand ink (#147117). The sentiment, chess pieces and dice are all from the same stamp set. The sentiment was stamped with Bumble Bee ink (#153116) and cut with an Ornate Frames Die (#150664). The chess pieces and dice were stamped with VersaMark (#102283) on Sahara Sand card (#121695). This was embossed with White Stampin’ Emboss Powder (#109132) and set with the Heat Tool (#129056). These were fussy cut before attaching to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals (#104430).

Have a great day & keep crafting!!

Borders Abound stamp set

Hello everyone,

I stamped the background of the Whisper White card (#106549) using 2 images from the Borders Abound stamp set (#c152627).




To stamp the background I used the “Hinge-Step technique” using the Stamparatus (#148187). I stamped the first image using Crumb Cake ink (#147116) then moved the plate down one hinge, re-stamped, then continued to the bottom of the card. Then I set up the 2nd image in between these images to fill in the gaps and using the hinge- step technique till all gaps were filled. I attached the card front to Pretty Peacock card (#150886). I cut a circle with the Stitched Shapes Die (#152323) from Pretty Peacock card, the embossed this with the Seabed 3D Embossing Folder (#152700). I attached one of the Gold Hoops Embellishments (#152474) to the Pretty Peacock circle. I used Mini Glue Dots (#103683) to attach the hoop, where the other elements would cover them. The sentiment is from the Woven Heirlooms stamp set (#c149306) and also cut with a Stitched Shapes Die. I used Pretty Peacock ink (#150083). The bird from the Birds & Branches stamp set (#p152570) was stamped with Pretty Peacock ink and Crumb Cake ink. The bird was cut with a die from the Birds & More Dies (#152721). The dies for the leaves are from the Forever Flourishing Dies (#152714) and I used Pretty Peacock card and Gold Foil Sheet (#132622). The ribbon to make the bow is the Very Vanilla/Gold 1/4” Pleated Ribbon from the Boho Indigo Product Medley (#153132) and was attached to the card with Mini Glue Dots (#103683). Gold Glitter Enamel Dots (#152155) were attached to the sentiment and one for the birds eye.

Stay safe & keep crafting!!


Birds & Branches

Hi everyone,

If you love cute little birds you will love this Birds & Branches Bundle (#154107).




The Soft Sea Foam card (#147012) was cut with 2 dies from the Birds & More Dies (#152721), then embossed with the Tasteful Textile 3D Embossing Folder (#152718). The branch, flowers and bird were also all cut with these dies. I used Garden Green card (#108605) for the branch and Poppy Parade card (#121694) for the bird. I stamped the flowers from the Birds & Branches stamp set (#152570) using Bumble Bee ink (#153116) and added the Red Rhinestone Basic Jewels (#144220) to the flower centres. I used the Adhesive Sheet (#152334) on the back of the Garden Green card before cutting the branch. I am so pleased to see the return of adhesive sheets as it makes it so easy to attach more detailed die cuts to your project. “Happy Birthday” is from the Many Mates stamp set (#c152633) and stamped with Poppy Parade ink (#147050), then cut with a Stitched So Sweetly Die (#151690). The sentiment, bird and flowers were all attached with Stampin’ Dimensionals (#104430) and Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals (#144108). I couldn’t resist adding sparkle to the bird and flowers using the Clear Wink Of Stella Glitter Brush (#141897).

Have a great day.

So Much Love stamp set

Hello ladies & guys,

I love the soft tones in this pretty card using the So Much Love stamp set (#c152667).



I attached a piece of the Soft Sea Foam designer paper from the 6”x6” Subtles Designer Series Paper (#153072) to the Whisper White base card (#106549). The next layer is Whisper White which was cut with the Ornate Layers Dies (#152726). On top of this is a piece of Soft Sea Foam card (#147012) which was cut with a Stitched Rectangles die (#151820). This is a perfect fit for the Ornate Layers cut out. I then embossed this with the Dainty Diamonds 3D Embossing Folder (#152702).

Boho Indigo Product Medley

Welcome friends,

You can let your creativity run free with the Boho Indigo Product Medley (#153132). It has almost everything you need for cards or scrapbooking and when you run out of the consumables you can get more with the Refill Kit (#153925). Included in the pack is a stamp set, dies, designer papers, ribbon, embossed sheets, gold foil accents and paper flowers.
For this card I combined some products from this Medley as well as using some other beautiful products.




First I punched the corners of the Whisper White base card (#106549) with the Detailed Trio Punch (#146320). The designer paper is from the Product Medley. I cut a piece of Whisper White card with a die from the Stitched So Sweetly Dies (#151690), then embossed it with the Dainty Diamonds 3D Embossing Folder (#152702). I just love this embossing folder with the beautiful delicate embossing. The vase was stamped with VersaMark (#102283) onto Misty Moonlight card (#153086). The White Stampin’ Emboss Powder (#109132) was sprinkled over the stamped image, then set with the Heat Tool (#129056). The coordinating die was used to cut out the vase. The Silver Foil Sheet (#132178) was used for the leaves which were also cut with a die from this product medley. The vase was attached to the card with Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals (#104430) and I used the Fine Tip Glue Pen (#138309) to attach the leaves. The flowers are also from this same set, however they are white so I coloured them with the Light Misty Moonlight Stampin’ Blends (#153108). Then I used the Clear Wink Of Stella Glitter Brush (#141897) to add the glitter to the flowers. These were then attached to the card with Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals. The 3/8” Denim Ribbon was wrapped around the card.

I hope your weekend is a crafty one!!


So Much love

Hello everyone,

The Magenta Madness is such a vibrant pink colour which I have used here on this card.




The Whisper White card front (#106549) was embossed with the beautiful Dainty Diamonds 3D Embossing Folder (#152702). I sponged the edges with Magenta Madness ink (#153117) then attached this to the base card. The Whisper White card and Magenta Madness card (#153085) were both cut with a die from the Stitched Rectangles Dies (#152710). The flower is from the So Much Love stamp set (#c152667) and I used Tuxedo Black Memento Ink (#132708). This was fussy cut and coloured with Stampin’ Blends. The colours used are Magenta Madness (#153106), Just Jade (#153107), Cinnamon Cider (#153105) and Daffodil Delight (#154883). I used the Clear Wink Of Stella Glitter Brush (#141897) to add the sparkle to the flower. This was attached to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals (#104430). “Happy” & “Birthday” are dies from the Well Written Dies (#151816) and I used the new Rainbow Glimmer Paper (#153056). I used the Fine-Tip Glue Pen (#138309) to glue the words to the card. I coloured the Pearl Basic Jewels (#144219) with the Magenta Madness Stampin’ Blends before attaching to the card.

Enjoy a crafty weeekend!!

Flowers For Every Season Designer Series Paper

Hello and welcome,

The Flowers For Every Season 6”x6” Designer Series Paper (#152486) have a range of beautiful flowers for each of the 4 seasons as well as small patterns on the reverse, giving you a wide variety of choice. The colours are in the new 2020-2022 In colors  which are Cinnamon Cider, Just Jade, Magenta Madness, Misty Moonlight, Bumble Bee as well as Poppy Parade and Whisper White.




I cut the designer paper with a die from the Tasteful Labels (#152886) and rounded the corners with the Detailed Trio Punch (#146320). “Birthday Wishes” is from the Butterfly Wishes stamp set (#149346) and stamped with Bumble Bee ink (#153116). The leaves from the Tasteful Touches stamp set (#c152562) were stamped with Pear Pizzaz ink (#147104). I attached Stampin’ Dimensionals (#104430) to the back of the Designer Paper and attached this to the Whisper White card (#106549). The flower is also from the Tasteful Touches stamp set. This was stamped with Bumble Bee ink and then re-stamped with VersaMark (#102283) and embossed with Clear Stampin’ Emboss Powder (#109130) which was set with the Heat Tool (#129056). I fussy cut the flower and attached it to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals and Mini Glue Dots (#103683). The die cut leaves are actually from the Forever Gold Laser-Cut Specialty Paper (#152493). I used the white side and daubered it with Pear Pizzaz ink and I glued these to the card with the Multipurpose Liquid Glue (#110755). I find the easiest way to add glue to these fine die cuts is to add some glue to a Silicon Craft Sheet (#127853), then dab a sponge into the glue, then sponge lightly onto the cutouts. The ribbon and gold trim are from the Forever Greenery Trim Combo Pack (#152475).

Enjoy your day!!

Forever Fern Stamp Set

Hello my friends,

Here’s another card using the Forever Fern Bundle (#c154094), which as I have said before is one of my favourite sets at the moment.




All the stamped leaves are from the Forever Fern stamp set (#c152559). The coloured inks I have used are Cherry Cobbler (#147083), Garden Green (#147089), Terracotta Tile (#150086) and Mango Melody (#147093). The leaf under the sentiment cut from Silver Foil Sheet (#132178) and all the stamped leaves were cut with the Forever Flourishing Dies (#152714). I embossed a piece of Very Vanilla card (#106550) with a Greenery Embossing Folder (#152716), then daubered with the Mango Melody ink to highlight the embossing. This was attached to the cardfront which I had punched one of the corners with the Detailed Trio Punch (#146320). The leaves were attached to the card with Mini Glue Dots (#103683) and Stampin’ Dimensionals (#104430). “Birthday Wishes” is from the Butterfly Wishes stamp set (#c149346) and I stamped this with VersaMark (#102283) and embossed with Silver Stampin’ Emboss Powder (#109131) and set with the Heat Tool (#129056). This was cut with a Tasteful Labels Die (#152886). The edges of this label and the cardfront were sponged with Mango Melody ink. The trio of embellishments are from the Holiday Rhinestone Basic Jewels (#150457).

Have a great and crafty day!!


Under My Umbrella

Hello friends,

Here’s a pretty card using the Under My Umbrella stamp set (#p151518). All the stamped images are from this set.






Not sure what this fancy fold card is called but it is very easy to make and is one of my favourites. I have used Whisper White card (#106549) and Poppy Parade card (#121694). The base card measures 21cm x 10.5cm and scored at 6cm. The Poppy Parade card is 14cm x 9.5cm. The next layer of White card is 23cm x 8.5cm and scored at 13cm. I embossed the right hand flap with the Ornate Floral 3D Embossing Folder (#152725). I stamped the raindrops with VersaMark (#102283) and embossed with White Stampin’ Emboss Powder (#109132), which was set with the Heat Tool (#129056). I sponged the edges of this piece of Whisper White card with Poppy Parade ink (#147050) and attached it to the left front flap of the card. The sentiment was stamped with Poppy Parade ink and cut with a die from the Tasteful Labels Dies (#152886). I then cut the Poppy Parade card with the same dies and glued it to the sentiment. I attached this to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals (#104430). Ensure to only add the Dimensionals to the left side of the circle so you can tuck the flap under the right side. I stamped the 2 umbrellas with VersaMark and White Stampin’ Emboss Powder onto Poppy Parade card and punched these with the Umbrella Builder Punch (#151293). The handles were stamped with Poppy Parade ink. I used Tuxedo Black Memento Ink (#132708) for the flowers. These were coloured with Stampin’ Blends - Poppy Parade (#154958), Mint Macaron (#154889) and Mango Melody (#154888). I added glitter to the umbrellas, flowers and the Poppy Parade circle with the Clear Wink Of Stella Glitter Brush (#141897).


Have a crafty day!!

Natures Thoughts Dies & Tasteful Labels Dies

Hi again everyone,

This card would be suitable for a masculine card.



To make the background for the card front I used the spots from the Basic Pattern Decorative Masks (#150697) and daubered VersaMark (#102283) randomly over the mask. I didn't want perfect spots. Then I sprinkled the card with Silver Stampin’ Emboss Powder (#109131) and set this with the Heat Tool (#129056). The designer paper is from the World Of Good Memories & More Card Pack (#153600) and this was attached to the Real Red card (#106578). Next I attached the Basic Black card (#121688) which I cut with a Tasteful Labels Die (#152886). I wrapped the Black 3/8” Glittered Organdy Ribbon (#147897) around the card. The sentiment from the Timeless Tropical stamp set (#c151497) was also silver embossed, then cut with another Tasteful Labels Die. This was attached to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals (#104430). The feathers and leaves are cut with the Nature’s Thoughts Dies (#153586) from Silver Foil Sheet (#132178). I daubered with Real Red ink (#147084) around the sentiment and card front and this was attached to the Whisper White base card.

Have a great day.

2020-2022 In colors

Hello friends,

Today I have made 2 cards, I guess you could say “the same but different”, showing the 5 new 2020-2022 In Colours.

I have also used Whisper White card (#106549). For the top card I cut the detailed cutouts from the Ornate Layers Dies (#152726) from Whisper White card. They were also cut with the rectangle from the same set of dies. I also cut each of the colours with the rectangle die and placed the White die-cut over the coloured cards, then attached them to the base card.
For the 2nd card I cut each of the coloured cards with the detailed die and the rectangle die and attached each to the White base card.
“Hello” is from the Good Morning Magnolia stamp set (#c149298), stamped with VersaMark (#102283) and embossed with Gold Stampin’ Emboss Powder (#109129) which was set with the Heat Tool (#129056).

The Seaside Spray 1/4” Metallic Ribbon (#150446) was wrapped around the card front, then this Whisper White card was attached to the Seaside Spray base card (#150889).

Flowers For Every Season Memories & More Card Pack

Hello Ladies & Guys,

I find the Memories & More card packs so versatile and are great not only for the beginner stamper but even the more avid crafter, as there is such a variety of designs and stickers included. They are great for cards and scrapbooking. I have used a couple of pieces from the Flowers For Every Season Memories & More Card Pack (#153058).




I embossed the Whisper White base card (#106549) using one of  the Greenery Embossing Folders (#152716). There are 2 folders in this set. I wrapped the Magenta Madness 2020-2022 In Color 1/4” Ribbon (#153623) around the card. I cut a triangle from the Misty Moonlight card (#153086) and attached this to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals (#104430). The Magenta Madness Designer Paper from the 2020-2022 In Color Designer Series Pack (#152070) was attached to the light blue card from the card pack and a sticker from this pack was attached. I wrapped a piece of the Gold Trim which is part of the Forever Greenery Trim Combo Pack (#152475) around the card. The sentiment from Tasteful Touches stamp set (#152562) was stamped with VersaMark (#102283) and Gold Stampin’ Emboss Powder (#109129). This was set with the Heat Tool (#129056), then cut with a Layering Ovals Die (#151771). Stampin’ Dimensionals were used to attach the sentiment to the card. The 2020-2022 In Color Enamel Dots (#152480) were added to the card and I added some sparkle to the flowers using the Clear Wink Of Stella Glitter Brush (#141897).

Have a great weekend & keep crafting!!

Fancy Fold card

Hello again friends,

I have been playing today with this fancy fold card, called a balcony fold card.



Below is the card when folded





I have used Whisper White card (#106549), Gorgeous Grape card (#147011) and Ornate Garden Specialty Designer Series Paper (#152488). The base card is 6”x6” and scored in half. The front piece is 7”x1-1/2” and scored at 1/2”, 3-1/2” and 6-1/2”. The inside piece is 5”x2-1/2” and scored at 1/2”, 2-1/2” and 4-1/2”, then I layered the coloured card and DSP. I stamped the leaves from the Forever Fern stamp set (#152559) and they were cut with the Forever Flourishing Dies (#152714). The inks used for the leaves were Soft Sea Foam (#147102), Old Olive (#147090), Granny Apple Green (#147095) and Daffodil Delight (#147094). I also added some of the leaves from the Forever Gold Laser-Cut Specialty Paper (#152493). “Happy” & “Birthday” are from the Well Said stamp set (#148796) and stamped with Gorgeous Grape ink (#147099) and cut with an Ornate Frames Die (#150664).

Blossoms In Bloom

Hello friends,

I have used the same technique as on yesterday’s card using the ink refills and a Water painter (#151298) with the Blossoms In Bloom Bundle (#p154123).




After colouring the Shimmery White card (#121717) with a variety of re-inkers, I cut the card with a Many Layered Blossoms Die (#153582). The Gold Foil Sheet (#132622) with the Adhesive Sheet (#152334) adhered to the back was cut with the “outline’ die. Before adhering the die cutouts to the card front I stamped using the floral image from the Blossoms In Bloom stamp set (#152684). I daubered the colours onto the stamp to match the colours on the coloured die cut piece, then stamped onto the Whisper White card front (#106549). The ink colours are Real Red (#147084), Daffodil Delight (#147094), Bermuda Bay (#147096) and Melon Mambo (#147051). The die cut pieces were attached to the card with Mini Glue Dots (#103683). Happy Birthday is also from the Blossoms In Bloom stamp set and it was stamped with Daffodil Delight ink (#147094). This was cut with a Stitched Rectangle Die (#151820). The Daffodil Delight card (#121680) under the sentiment was punched with Lovely Labels Pick A Punch (#152883).

Have a great day.

Butterfly Beauty Dies

Hi everyone,

I was reminded recently of this technique using ink refills and Water Painters (#512298).






Using a variety of ink refills and a Water Painter, I randomly coloured a piece of the Shimmery White card (#121717) as shown above. (This photo is another piece I coloured as I didn’t photograph the piece before I cut it). Shimmery White card is perfect for watercolouring, so great for this technique. You can get more subtle colours by using more water when colouring. You can allow this to air dry or use the Heat Tool (#129056) for a quicker result. Once dried I cut the coloured card using the Butterfly Beauty base Die (#151819). Then the Brass Foil Sheet (#153057) was cut with the “outline” die from the same set. I had used the Adhesive Sheets (#152334) on the back of the foil sheets before cutting, which makes it so easy to adhere this more detailed die-cut piece. The Whisper White card front (#106549) was embossed with the Old World Paper 3D Embossing Folder (#153200). The butterflies were attached to the card with Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals (#104430). The sentiment is from the Blossoms In Bloom stamp set (#p152684) and stamped with Highland Heather ink (#147103). The die to cut the sentiment is one of the Stitched Rectangles Dies (#152323). This was attached to the card with Mini Glue Dots (#103683). The beautiful Gilded Gems (#152478) were added to finish the card.


Enjoy your day & keep crafting!!

Tasteful Touches stamp set

Hello,

I usually like nice bright colours but recently I have enjoyed using some of the more subtle colours on my cards.




I have used Whisper White card (#106549) as the base card, card front and to stamp the flower and sentiment on to. The stamped leaves and the flower are from the Tasteful Touches stamp set (#c152562). I used Soft Sea Foam ink (#147104) for the leaves and Blushing Bride ink (#147100) for the flower. I fussy cut the flower and used the Clear Wink Of Stella Glitter Brush (#141897) to add the sparkle to the flower. I cut the leaves using the Forever Flourishing Dies (#152714) from Soft Sea Foam card (#147012), then spritzed the leaves with the Frost White Shimmer Paint (#147046).The sentiment from the Tasteful Touches stamp set was also stamped with Blushing Bride ink. This and the Champagne Foil Sheet (#144748) were both cut with Stitched Nested labels Dies (#149638). I used the Tasteful Textile 3D Embossing Folder (#152718) to emboss the foil. The die-cut leaves were attached to the card with Mini Glue Dots (#103683) and the sentiment and flowers were attached with Stampin’ Dimensionals (#104430). Holiday Rhinestone Basic Jewels (#150457) were added to the card.

Have a great day & keep crafting!!

Forever Fern Bundle

Hi everyone,

I think I have mentioned before that this is one of my favourite bundles, the Forever Fern Bundle (#154094). In fact the Forever Greenery suite Collection (#154143) has a combination of beautiful co-ordinating products including Designer Series paper, Gold Hoops Embellishments, Gold Laser Cut Paper and embossing folders.



I stamped the feathers from the Tasteful Touches stamp set (#c152562) using VersaMark (#102283) and White Stampin’ Emboss Powder (#109132). After setting with the Heat Tool (#129056) I lightly daubered over the embossed feather with Soft Sea Foam ink (#147102). Then I stamped the leaves on the Whisper White card front (#106549) also with Soft Sea Foam ink. All the stamped leaves and berries/flowers are from the Forever Fern stamp set (#c152559). The berries or flowers (not sure what to call them so I will call them berries) have been stamped with Real Red ink (#147084). This was done with the Stamparatus (#148187) as I also wanted to stamp it with the VersaMark and add Clear Stampin’ Emboss Powder (#109130). The other coloured leaves were coloured by daubering the ink onto the stamp. For 2 of the sets of leaves I used Cajun Craze ink (#147085) in the middle and Old Olive ink (#147090) on the outside, and for the 3rd set of leaves I used Old Olive and Crushed Curry ink (#147087). I added some glitter to these leaves using the Clear Wink Of Stella Glitter Brush (#141897). These leaves, the berries and the leaves from the Old Olive card (#106576) were all cut with the Forever Flourishing Dies (#152714). The leaves from the Old Olive card were then Spritzed with Frost White Shimmer Paint #147046). Before attaching all the leaves to the card I embossed part of the card front with one of the Greenery Embossing Folders (#152716). “Happy Birthday” from the Itty Bitty Greetings stamp set (#c151331) was stamped with Real Red ink and cut with a Tasteful Labels Die (#152886). I added the Red Rhinestone Basic Jewels (#146924) to the greeting. I used Mini Glue Dots (#103683) to attach the Old Olive leaves and the red berries, and Stampin’ Dimensionals (#104430) to add the other leaves to the card as well as the greeting. I sponged the edge of the cardfront with Soft Sea Foam ink.

I hope you have had a chance to do some crafting this weekend.






Greenery Embossing Folder

Hello & welcome friends,

I have just received this new Greenery embossing folder (#152716) which is one of 2 folders in the set so couldn’t wait to use it on a card. These folders are narrower than the normal embossing folders. They measure 8.6cm x 15.9cm and I still didn’t use the whole width of the folder on this card.




I have used Whisper White card (#106549) for all the elements. The flowers and leaves are from the Forever Blossoms stamp set (#151457). I used Flirty Flamingo ink (#147052) for the flowers and Granny Apple Green ink (@147095) for the leaves. These were cut with the co-ordinating Cherry Blossoms dies (#151456). I wrapped the gorgeous metallic gold trim from the Forever Greenery Trim Combo Pack (#152475) around the card front, then added the Gold Hoop Embellishment (#152474) using Mini Glue Dots (#103683) to adhere it to the card. I ensured the dots would be hidden under the flowers. The flowers were attached with Stampin’ Dimensionals (#104430) and the leaves with Mini Glue Dots. I added the Champagne Rhinestone Basic Jewels (#151193) to the flowers sentiment and card. “Thanks You” is from the Blossoms In Bloom stamp set (#p152684) and stamped with Flirty Flamingo ink. This was cut with the Lovely Labels Pick A Punch (#152883). This punch allows you to punch 6 different labels, which can be layered, and cut any length you require to suit a variety of sentiments, so very versatile.

Have a crafty weekend!!

Ornate Style

Hi everyone,

These flowers on today’s card are from the Ornate Style stamp set (#c152572).




I stamped the floral image twice, using VersaMark (#102283) and Gold Stampin’ Emboss Powder (#109129), then set with the Heat Tool (#129056). I fussy cut the outline of one image and 3 of the flowers from the second image. I used Stampin’ Blends to colour the images. Th colours used are Soft Sea Foam (#154902), Flirty Flamingo (#154884), Calypso Coral (#154881), Purple Posy (#154896), Pool Party (#154894), Daffodil Delight (#154883) and Pumpkin Pie (#15487). I also coloured the Pearl Basic Jewels (#144219) with these Stampin’ Blends. I attached the 2 Daffodil Delight flowers and the Pumpkin Pie flower with Stampin’ Dimensionals (#104430) over the larger flower image. The card front is from the In Good Taste Designer Series Paper (#152494). I also gold embossed the edges of the DSP by daubering VersaMark along the edges and adding the Embossing Powder. The Gold  Foil Sheet (#132622) was cut with a die from the Ornate Borders Dies (#152724) and attached to the card with Adhesive Sheets (#152334). I am so pleased to have these available again as it makes it so much easier to adhere the detailed cut outs to your project. Just adhere a piece onto the back of your cardstock before cutting. “Happy Birthday” is from the Blossoms In Bloom stamp set (#p152684) and this was also gold embossed. I used a Stitched Rectangle Die (#151820) to cut the sentiment.

I hope you have a great weekend, stay safe & keep crafting!!

The 2 pieces of DSP are from this pack and attached to the Whisper White base card (#106549). The ribbon is Whisper White 1/4” Crinkled Seam Binding (#151326) and I coloured this by sponging with Poppy Parade ink (#147050). I stamped the daisies from Daisy Lane stamp set (#c149325), onto Poppy Parade card (#121694). I used VersaMark (#102283) and White Stampin’ Emboss Powder (#109132) which was heat set with the Heat Tool (#129056). These were punched with the Medium Daisy punch (#149517). The 2 daisies were assembled together with Mini Glue Dots (#103683) and attached to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals (#104430). The greeting is from the Last A Lifetime stamp set (#151479) and stamped with Poppy Parade ink. The greeting and the Poppy Parade card were both cut with the Tasteful Labels Dies (#152886) and attached to the card with Dimensionals. The Red Rhinestone Basic Jewels (#146924) were added to the flower centre and the sentiment.

Enjoy your day, stay safe & keep crafting!!

World Of Good Masculine card

Hi and welcome again,

It is so easy to make a quick card using the Memories & More Card Packs. These packs are great for cards and scrapbooking. They include 2 sizes of double sided cards of various designs as well as stickers. I have used the World Of Good Memories & More Card Pack (#153600).



I attached the larger piece of designer paper to the Whisper White base card (#106549). The next layer is Night Of Navy card (#106577), then the smaller piece is another piece of designer paper from the pack. I stamped Happy Birthday from Peaceful Moments stamp set (#151595) onto the card using VersaMark (#102283), sprinkled with Silver Stampin’ Emboss Powder (#109131) and set with the Heat Tool (#129056). The 3 stickers under the sentiment are also from the Memories & More pack and have adhesive backs, making the card so easy to assemble.

Enjoy your day & keep crafting!!

Forever Fern Bundle

Welcome everyone,

I have made so many projects using the Forever Fern Bundle (#c154094) so here is another card.




The Designer Series Paper is the 2020-2022 In-Color 6”x6” DSP (#153070). The strip under the sentiment is the reverse of the cardfront. The colour is Just Jade. I coloured the 2 tone leaves by daubering onto the stamp with Mint Macaron ink (#147106) and Crushed Curry ink (#147087). I used the Clear Wink Of Stella Glitter Brush (#141897) to add glitter to the leaves. The smaller leaves were stamped with Soft Suede ink (#147115). These leaves and the small leaves from the Brass Foil Sheet (#153057) were all cut with the Forever Flourishing Dies (#152714). The outline leaf is from the Forever Gold Laser Cut Specialty Paper (#152493). The sentiment is from the Forever Fern stamp set and stamped with Mint Macaron ink (I’m still waiting on my new In Color inks otherwise I would have used Just Jade). The sentiment was cut with a Tasteful Labels Die (#152886) and attached with Stampin’ Dimensionals (#104430).

Have a great day and keep crafting!!
