All That You Are Watercolour Card

Hiding on the inside cover of the Spring/Summer Catalogue the All That You Are stamp set might be one which you’ve over-looked, I know I did for a couple of months. It’s a stamp set which contains lovely floral images and the best thing is the two smaller flowers can be cut out with the First Frost dies which carried over from the Autumn/Winter catalogue.

I love the main floral image so wanted to highlight that by creating a very simple card, so out came my Stazon ink and water-colour pencils.

Using the Rectangle Stitched Dies to add a sentiment and some of the Black Cord finishes the card off and makes it look elegant.

Wonderful Romance Anniversary Card

After making an Anniversary card with the To Have and To Hold stamp set I decided to make a few more using other sets, so today I’m sharing this card made with the Wonderful Romance bundle.

This is part of the Floral Romance Suite which is perfect for all theings romanctic and wedding themed. There are some gorgeous embellishments in this suite but sadly they didn’t make it onto this card but look out for them on a project soon.

I used Lovely Lipstick and Soft Sea Foam as a colour scheme to show these products look gorgeous in any combination, not just those suggested in the suite.

To start the card I stamped and embossed three of the floral bunches on vellum. I then coloured them on the verse side using a mixute of Mossy Meadow with hints of Pineapple Punch for the leaves and Lovely Lipstick and Petal Pink on the flowers.

I used one full bunch of flowers for one side of my card and sections of the other two images I’d stamped on the other side so I ended up with more of the larger flowers. I love that you can cut the images up to create your own arrangements, don’t be afraid to experiment as thats part of the fun

I finished the card off with some Lovely Lipstick Enamel Dots in the centres of the flowers which really bring out the Lovely Lipstick.

I love how versatile this bundle is and think you should definielty consider it for your collection before its gone.

Painted Seasons Birthday Card

I wanted to share with you another card I’ve made with the Painted Seasons stamp set and matching framelits as this sets will no longer be available after Sunday as March 31st signals the end of this year’s Sale-A-Bration

I chose to use Gorgeous Grape as despite being a purple I haven’t really warmed to this colour yet, I think its because its more on the blue blue side of purple. It’s quite a bright colour when you see a full sheet of cardstock so I’ve toned it done by adding a vellum layer. The fancy edge at the bottom is cut using the Delicate Lace Egelits Dies which I think really adds a wow to this card.

The greeting comes from the More Than Word stamp set which has sentiments to co-ordinate with many of our Sale-A-Bration sets, this will also be gone after Sunday ao grab it while you can as it has a lovely mix of fonts. I stamped the greeting on a frame from the Stitched Label Framelits as I thought the edge work well with the lacy die.

To finish the card I added some leaves and one of those gorgeous flowers from the Painted Leaves stamp set, every time I stamp this flower I’m amazed by how much detail there is in just one stamp, its stunning!!

Get Well Soon Card with Healing Hugs

I’m sharing a get well card today which is something I don’t make enough of. For this card I’ve pulled out the Healing Hugs stamp set because I love that beautiful rose image and the best thing is you can get all that detail with just one impression.

Taking inspiration from the Tea Room Speciality paper I chose a colour scheme of Calypso Coral and Rich Razzleberry with just a hint of Pear Pizzazz. You wouldn’t expect these two colours to work but I love them together.

The Rich Razzleberry background layer is the lattice die from the Rose Trellis Framelits. I love this die and if you do too I suggest you order it very soon as when our current supply of this Framelit set have run out it won’t be replaced.

Pop of Petals Floral Trio Birthday Card

Can you believe I’ve had the Pop of Petals stamp set and matching Four-Petal Flower Punch and they’ve not been used, shocking right? So today’s the day I inked it up and created the simple but stunning birthday card.

Three stamped and punched flowers in Berry Burst and a little foliage stamped in Lemon Lime Twist and you have the main part of the card.

Next simply add your chosen greeting to the centre of the stamping, my sentiment came from the Happy Birthday Gorgeous stamp set, then you have an almost complete card.

To finish the card I added a large Gold Facet Gem to the centre of each flower, aren’t they just the perfect fit?

Simple Stamping – Vibrant Vases

So today I’m bringing #SimpleStamping to the Vibrant Vases set. I was so pleased to see this in the new catalogue as its adds even more versatility to using the Varied Vases Bundle which is one of my favourites from the Annual Catalogue.

For this project I’ve used just four inks (Blueberry Bushel, Old Olive, Calypso Coral and Tuxedo Black Memento) and the stamp set.

Although these are photopolymer stamps and easy to line up  I would suggest using the Stamp-a-ratus if your going to create an image where things need lining up in straight lines like the vase on the shelf. This would also make creating multiples of this card very quick.

Hope you’ve enjoyed today’s #SimpleStamping and a quick look at Vibrant Vases.
