Sealed With Love, Love Notes Pouch

This little project was actually inspired by my husband, he has often joked about us not buying gifts but making promises and requests to each other. His favourite request being a home cooked roast lamb dinner, this happens very rarely as I hate the smell of cooking lamb.

Anyway I decided to produce something I could write these little promises on as a gift for Valentine’s Day. This little pouch was very quick to make and could be embellished any way you like. Continue reading “Sealed With Love, Love Notes Pouch”

So Very Much meets…Sealed With Love

For today’s project I wanted to make some really quick cards that had nothing to do with the love theme but still used the Sealed With Love stamp set. I chose to use the paint stripe stamp to make a background. Continue reading “So Very Much meets…Sealed With Love”

“Hearts & Kisses” 3 in a Row Games using the Sealed With Love Stamp Set

Today is the first in my new week long series featuring the Sealed With Love Bundle from the Spring/Summer catalogue. I’m hoping to bring you some ideas and show you this bundle can be used for more than just Valentine’s cards.

I thought I’d start the series off with something completely different, a love themed version of 3 in a Row, “Hearts & Kisses” made using the Sending Love dsp stack, Layering Squares Framelits and the Sealed With Love stamp set.

To make the board you will need a piece of Real Red cardstock measuring 61/2″ by 6 1/2″

Take a piece of the Sending Love dsp stack, or any other piece of 6″ square patterned paper. Score on both sides at 2″ and 4″ to form a grid pattern.

Cut two strips of 12″ cardstock 1/4″ wide and cut in half so you have four 1/4″ strips each 6″ in length.

Stick the red strips along the score lines on your dsp piece to form the grid. Stick the whole piece to the centre of the Real Red piece, your board is complete.

To make the playing pieces you will need to cut twelve squares from the 1 1/4″ scallop square Framelit in Real Red and twelve squares of Whisper White from the 1 3/16″ square die.

One six of the white squares stamp the lips images from the Sealed With Love stamp set in Real Red ink and on the other six stamp one of the Heart images. Stick the stamped images onto the red squares and your ready to play.

I loved making this little game and can see it transferring to a other stamp sets such as Beetles & Bugs or Day the Beach really well.

Thanks for stopping by today, hope you join me tomorrow for my next Sending Love project.

Floral Friday – Inside the Lines Razzleberry Birthday Card

This years Spring/Summer and Sale-A-Bration catalogue have introduced a couple of products for those interested in adult colouring, the watercolour pencils and the Inside the Line dsp. As someone who finds colouring very therapeutic and has a very large collection of the colouring books I couldn’t wait to test out these two new products. Here’s the card I came up with using a Rich Razzleberry and Old Olive colour scheme.

I loved making this card and love how it turned out even more and most of all I love just how simple it was to make. Just a little colouring and cutting of the flowers and a greeting stamped on one of the banners from the Banner Framelits set. I love how adding a little bit of Rich Razzleberry Stampin’ Marker to the centre of the flowers has just given them a lift and finished off the card.

If you want to get your hands on this gorgeous card then simply make an order of £45.00 or above and you can choose this item for FREE. So simply click here to go straight to my online shop and get your set.

Sale-A-Bration: Tasty Trucks

Tasty Trucks was the first item on my Sale-A-Bration wish-list this year. With the cute little truck and plenty of sentiments and accessories this is the perfect set to make a variety of cards.

I stamped the truck on the Shimmery White cardstock as my Watercolour Cardstock appears to have gone walkabout since Christmas. I coloured using the blender pen and the new Watercolour pencils which are just lovely to work with and available in thirteen true Stampin’ Up! colours so a must have for anyone who loves to colour.

The background paper comes from the Festive Birthday dsp pack which has a gorgeous mix of bright colours, perfect to brighten up the mood on a miserable January day. I finished off the card by layering it onto some die cut ovals which has been stamped in Melon Mambo with that adorable little cupcake.

I think Tasty Trucks is a great set to add to your collection. Plus if you picked up Glamper Greetings from the Autumn/Winter catalogue then this is the perfect accompaniment. Available free with a purchase £45.00 or more from any current catalogue. If you purchase everything I used to make this project below then the total is £92.50, meaning you can pick up Tasty Trucks and one other Sale-A-Bration item totally free!

Floral Friday – Oh So Succulent Birthday Card

succulentcard1.jpg

Today its the birthday of one of my best friends and to celebrate I made her this card, I hope she has received it before she reads this. I chose to use the new Oh So Succulent bundle  from the new Spring/Summer catalogue. The stamps and dies have a mixture of combinations which can be used to make flowers and other succulent plants along with some greetings in two lovely fonts.

I stuck to a colour combination of Mint Macaron, Sweet Sugarplum, Calypso Coral with a hint of Tip Top Taupe to match with the co-ordinating Succulent Garden dsp. Calypso Coral is not one of my favourite colours as I’m just not an orange/peach kind of girl but in small doses I think it looks okay. Here is a close up of the flowers

I’ve added some enamel shapes just to finish the card off and keep it fairly flat  for posting. I’m looking forward to playing some more with this versatile new set.
