New Catalogue Sneak Peek #6

Hello again,
I have a couple of simple cards to share today.

I have used the new 'Label Love' stamp set and coordinating punch teaming it up with the two beautiful butterfly punches, 'bitty butterfly' and 'elegant butterfly'.

The papers I used are from 'Polka Dot Parade' and are some of my favourites.

New Catalogue Sneak Peek #5

Hi there,
Something a bit different today.

I have made two cards in the same design but different colours.

First up using Strawberry Slush cardstock.

And second using Costal Cabana cardstock

For both cards I used patterned paper from 'Quartrefancy Speciality' paper pack.  I stamped the design from 'Mosaic Madness' stamp set and punched out using the coordinating 'Mosaic' punch.  

I can not take credit for the design of the card I saw it on pintrest and really liked it, the tutorial is here if you wish to have a go at making one.

Thank you for visiting

New Catalogue Sneak Peeks #4

Hi there, back again with more to share today
I have two cards to show using the same products, one with a masculine feel and one more feminine.

I have used Baked Brown Sugar cardstock for the bases and patterned paper from 'Soho Subway' paper pack.  The sentiments for both cards are from the 'Label Love' stamp set, using the coordinating punch and are stamped in Pistachio Pudding ink.

To embellish the cards I have used This and That washi tape and handmade clay buttons and flowers.  These were made using a great new product 'Simply Pressed Clay' and 'Buttons & Blossoms Simply Pressed Clay Molds'.  I experimented with the clay colouring it before use with Pistachio Pudding ink from a reinker when I made the blossoms and colouring after dry for the buttons.  Both ways seems to give a good effect but I will be experimenting more. 

The clay is airdry and very light so great for cards.  It is great to be able to make this type of embellishment in any colour needed for a project, I just need a bit of practise so my buttons end up round like buttons should be ;)

New Catalogue Sneak peek #3

hello on this sunny Saturday,

Today I am sharing a set of very simple cards, I don't do 'clean and simple' but these images are so beautiful they don't need a lot of embellishment

I stamped the images from the new hostess set 'Simply Sketched' onto card using Stazon ink and then coloured using a waterbrush and ink from the new 'In colours' ink pads.

I think this stamp set is going to be a new favourite, you can get yours when you host a Stampin' up party!

I hope you have had a sunny day too


New Catalogue Sneak Peek #2

Hello again,
I am back today with another sneak peek 

 For this card I have used Crisp Cantaloupe cardstock for the base and stamped the lovely 'Wildflower Meadow' stamp onto Smokey Slate cardstock using the Smokey Slate ink.  This is a new colour added to the Neutrals collection and is a lovely shade of grey.  I then added a greeting in Crisp Cantaloupe using the 'Label Love' stamp set and coordinating punch.

To add a bit of extra detail I used a small spot of Crystal Effects on the center of the flowers.

Thank you for visiting today

For this card I used cardstock in all the new 'in colours', they are all beautiful shades and compliment each other so well.  The Colours are Baked Brown Sugar, Coastal Cabana, Crisp Cantaloupe, Pistachio Pudding and Strawberry Slush.

I used the gourgeous 'Papilion Potporri' stamp set and coordinating punches that are still available in the new catalogue along with some new goodies.  The shapes my butterflies are perched on have been created using the new 'Label Love' stamp set and coordinating punch.  The greeting I used is from an absoloutely stunning new hostess set called 'Simply Sketched'.
