Global Stampin’ Friends Blog Hop

Welcome to this month’s Global Stamping Friends Blog Hop & thank you for visiting.  logoWe are a group of card makers from all over the world who love to create.  This month the challenge is all about the spanking, brand new Annual Catalogue.  If you haven’t heard by now the new catalogue went live yesterday so be sure to contact your nearest Demonstrator for a copy.

You have come via the very talented Sharon who does amazing work especially with her scrapbooking.

Dragonfly-Dreams-1---InsideFor my card today I opted to go very simple & showcase a couple of the new In Colours – Lovely Lipstick & Pineapple Punch Inks & boy do they have a “punch”.   I will say I am not a Brights’ girl, but I am loving these colours.  I teamed the Inks with Basic Black, Whisper White & Lovely Lipstick Cardstock along with a set that has carried over – Dragonfly Dreams.


My dragonfly has been heat embossed using VersaMark & Clear Emboss Powder.  I love embossing my shapes this way as it sort of packs a bit of a “punch” to your projects.

Birthday Blossoms


Today I am sharing with you one of the cards we created using the Birthday Blossoms Stamp Set along with the Naturally Eclectic DSP.  The ladies absolutely loved the card, especially the flowers for some reason.  I think it may be the colours which I picked up from the DSP.Birthday-Blooms-1---Inside

I’ve stamped Emerald Envy Ink direct onto Emerald Envy CS, fussy cut before adhering to the card.  The DSP was layered onto a piece of Peekaboo Peach CS & then to a Fresh Fig Base.

Celebrate #2


My card today is our 2nd card created last Friday using the same set Amazing You, which you re able to see here.  I still have another to share with you in the next couple of days so be sure to pop back.

Amazing-You---Lemon-Lime-TwFor this card I’ve teamed Lemon Lime Twist with Basic Black & Melon Mambo.  I am loving these colours together – so vibrant! Once again, I’ve used the Petal Passion DSP on the card.  I love when I can show my classes different ways of using our lovely DSP with just the 1 stamp set.  Once again, the flowers have been coloured with Watercolour Pencils & Blender Pen.

The leaves were stamped with the Lemon Lime Twist Stampin’ Spot from the Tutti-fruitti Suite, Page 28 of the 2018 Occasions Catalogue.

Birthday Blossoms


A couple of days ago I shared with you the card we created in our “Cards @ Toogoom” class.  Well, today I thought I would share with you another card I created a few weeks ago with the same fold but using the Birthday Blossoms Stamp Set.

I got my inspiration for the card from Pinterest which had been created by Michelle Birthday-Blossoms---InsideLast.  Thank you Michelle for your inspiration!  I loved the clean lines of her card, along with the touches of pink.

To colour my flowers, I sponged Power Pink Ink over the top with a Stamping Sponge before blending Flirty Flamingo with a Blender Pen beginning from the inner petals & out towards the outer petals.  It picks up the colour yet still keeping them soft.  I added touches of Clear Wink of Stella to bring the Flirty Flamingo out a little more.

Don’t forget when shopping in my Online Shop to use September’s Host Code to receive a gift from me.

Until next time, Happy Stampin’
