Share What You Love Suite and Grapefruit Grove

For today’s card I’m showcasing products from the Share What You Love Suite in Grapefruit Grove, one of our new 2018-2020 In-Colours. As regular readers will know I’m not a huge fan of the orange/peach shades in our collection but Grapefruit Grove is lovely and currently my favourite of the new in-colours.

Most of these products come from the Gotta Have It All bundle, which I highly recommend anyone purchasing as this suite of products is just stunning in real-life.

I added a circle from the Stitched Shape Framelits as a base for my stamping. The leaves are done in second generation ink so you can see how lovely a lighter shade of this colour is. The doily was one of the new pearlescent ones turned over and inked with Grapefruit Grove, I think this gives the card a real pop.  The beautiful Artisan Pearls add the perfect finishing touch, I can see myself going through many packets of these.

Here’s a close-up of the card, I wish the photo showed the beautiful pearly shimmer on those fussy cut flowers.  Hope you enjoyed today’s project.

Floral Friday: Goodbye Tranquil Tulips

Today for my Floral Friday feature I’m saying goodbye to the set Tranquil Tulips, this has been my favourite host stamp set from the 2017 – 2018 Annual catalogue as tulips are one of my favourite flowers. I’m still waiting for mine to appear in my garden but in the meantime I’ve enjoyed making these two cards:

berry burst tranquil tulips

This first card uses shades of Berry Burst and Old Olive. The first layer was done with second generation ink from the Berry Burst. A simple greeting from the Beautiful Bouquet stamp set and some background paper from the Color Theory DSP Stack finish off the front of  this simple card.

On the inside I added another stamped tulip and a matching strip of paper just  to add an extra touch.

dapper denim tranquil tulips

For the blue version I used Dapper Denim and Old Olive and stamped on the crackle glaze paper. To add some extra dimension to this card I stamped the second layer of the tulip petals on a separate piece of paper and layered them up with Dimensional’s. The greeting and label image on this card come from the Rose Wonder stamp set another of my favourites which is retiring.

Hope you enjoyed todays project.

Bright and Cheery Birthday Card with Picture Perfect Birthday

For today’s card I used probably the brightest suite of products which are currently in the catalogue.  I think you can’t really go wrong with these products and any card made using them will brighten the recipients day. Here’s what I came up with:

Lemon Linme twist Happiest of birthdays to you

I love the combination of Lemon Lime Twist and Berry Burst together and think this card could work for males or females as its not overly feminine. The party blower stamps are really cleverly designed as the images all interlock making stamping a straight image super simple.

Eastern Palace Mini Treat Bag & Notecard

For today’s project I wanted to make a little notecard to accompany a gift and I decided to use the Mini Treat Bag Framelits and pair it with products from the Eastern Palace suit which work really well for both men and women.

I kept the stamping simple with a mix of fresh Fig, Dapper Denim and Emerald Envy, I love how perfectly aligned the dots are thanks to the Stamparatus (available June 1st), simple but stunning.

The Mini Treat Bag was made up using the instructions in the die packet, just cut the two large dies and stick together. To add some decoration to my bag I created a belly band which can be removed. I just wrapped some of the Tranquil Tide Finely Woven Ribbon around the bag and secured at the front with a small piece of Tear n Tape. I then simply stuck on of the Gold Vinyl Stickers on some Fresh Fig cardstock and cut out with the two corresponding dies from the Eastern Medallions Thinlits. I love how this combination of dies cuts out the inner petals and adds even more dimension to the project.

I love how with coordinating products a project like this can take just a few minutes to complete and looks gorgeous when finished. The Eastern Beauty stamp set and eastern Medallions Thinlits are only available as a bundle until May 31st, then they will only be available separately, so grab them now and save 10%.

Simple Thank You Car with the Share What You Love Suite

I’m loving playing with the Share What You Love Suite of products which is currently available as three bundles. This card features products from the biggest bundle the Gotta Have It All Bundle which includes my newest favourite paper pack the Share What You Love Speciality Paper. Here’s a look at my card:

Share What You Love gotta have it all bundle

The beautiful paper doesn’t need much adding to it to make a great card so I just stamped a simple panel with the largest floral stamp from the Love What You Do stamp set in Rich Razzleberry. I added a little texture to the card with the new Rich Razzleberry Velvet Ribbon which is so soft to touch.

Magical Day Mermaid Birthday Card

Today I’m featuring the Magical Day stamp set out of the Spring/Summer catalogue, I love this set and was really hoping this would not be retiring, sadly it is so if you haven’t yet added it to your collection I highly recommend it.

I chose the little mermaid stamp as my focus as I wanted to use the bubble paper from the Myths and Magic Speciality DSP and the Glitter Epoxy Shapes. Here’s my card:

And here’s a close up of the mermaid:

Fresh Florals Popcorn Daisy Box

Fresh Florals was one of those packs of paper I bought last year in the demonstrator pre-order period and haven’t used to its fully potential which is a shame as its beautiful paper. For today’s project I’ve teamed it up with the Popcorn Box Thinlits and the Daisy Punch to create a cute little box which would make a lovely wedding favour.

To embellish the front of the box  I punched three daisies out of vellum and sponged them with powder pink ink before gluing together. I added a large faceted clear gem to the centre. I went round this gem with the powder pink Stampin’ Marker to added some more definition. To another bit of texture I added some loops of Silver Metallic Thread and secured behind the daisy.

I love how this turned out and think it’s looking very cute sat on my desk, unforntunatly my daughter also likes it so I’m not sure how long it will last.
