Positive Thoughts Card

I’ve pulled out the Positive Thoughts stamp set to work with today as I wanted to make a sympathy card, somehting I struggle with. I think all of the senitments in this set convey posite caring thoughts and I really like the sentiment  “Hugs, Prayers, Love” because if I lost someone close to me thats exactly what I’d want from other people.

Using the Tasteful Textures Embossing Folder adds a subtle background to this card which paired well with the paper from the In Good Taste DSP.

My favourite part of this card is the tiny little die cut butterfly, I think it adds the perfect finishing touch to the card.

Simple Stamping: Rainbow Butterflies

Just a quick little project today to highlight our wonderful new Rainbow Glimmer Paper, something which is goregous no matter ho much you use.

I’ve stamp three butterflies from Butterfly Gala on the Glimmer paper with Jet Black Stazon. I then left my stamping to dry for ten minutes to make sure it didn’t smudge.

I then punched then out and added some stamped bodies. After stamping my greeting and the antenna’s, I added the butterflies with glue dots. Quick, simple and full of sparkle what more could you want.

Floral Friday: Timeless Tulips Card Duo

For today’s Floral Friday post I’m highlighting the Timeless Tulips stamp set. Tulips are one of my favourite flowers but I actually don’t like red ones. So today’s cards are featuring red tulips in Poppy Parade.

I’ve paired my red tulips with the Stitched Nested Dies and the Forever Greenery Designer Paper.

Timeless Tulips 1

This first card is just simple stamping on the largest Stitched Nested Label with just the centre tulip popped up on some dimensionals. I’ve left sentimetns off this card so it can be used for any occassion.

Timeless Tulips 2

For the second card I added in the one of the new Greenery Mini Embossing Folders to add some texture to the background.

I like these cards but I’m still not a fan of red tulips.

Two Ways With Triangles

I didn’t think I’d love the Stitched Triangle Dies as much as I do but they are amazing and definitely one to add to your collection. I love how you can link them togther to create a patchwork effect, create bunting of many sizes or just use them in a random pattern seperatley like I have here.

5 Triangle card

For both of these cards I use a card base measuring 13.9cm x 10.5cm, slightly smaller than my normal cards bases, so the largest Stitched Rectangle Die fits comfortably on the card front. I then cut out five random triangles out of my rectangle. I used the thick Whisper White cardstock to do the triangle to add some stability to this layer. I then stamped the greeting from So Senitmel in Memento Tuxedo Black, using washie tape to cover half the greeting so only Thank You was stamped.. To finish the card I filled in my triangle windows with 2020-2022 In-Colour Designer Paper.

Triangle Lines Card

For the second card I used the die with the long line of triangles and cut five rows. I colour each one with a strip of In-Colour cardstock on the back, I secrured the strips in place with tear and tape. I added the same sentiment, stamped in full on the largest of the Tasteful Labels Dies.

I really love how these cards turned out and can’t wait to play more with the Stitched Triangles.

Floral Framed For You Card

I love stamp sets that have little flowers and leaves so you can create quick and simple backgrounds just by randomly stamping. Thats one reason the Framed For You stamp set has been one of my first cgoices from the new catalogue, alongside the floral images there are some great sentiments and that great frame image which works perfectly with our Layering Squares Dies.

For this card I used a bold colour combination of Gorgeous Grape, Just Jade, Pool Party and Cinnamon Cider and I love how these colours look together.

Framed With Love -flat

I love how this turned out and think its a great design you could mass produce easily to build your card stash, its also one where you could change up the colours easily.
