Thanks so much for popping in today. It is very much appreciated.
I thought I would share a card I created sometime ago but one that I hadn’t posted using the lovely Tasteful Touches Stamp Set, along with the In Good Taste DSP & the Tasteful Textile 3D Embossing Folder. All of which I am so happy are in the current Annual Catalogue.
A piece of Basic White was embossed with the Tasteful Textile 3D Embossing Folder, adhered to a layer of Smokey Slate Cardstock & then to a Night of Navy Base Card.
A piece of Basic White was stamped with the feather from the Tasteful Touches Stamp Set in Night of NavyInk, a piece of Ribbon (retired) wrapped around the bottom part & a bow tided. This panel was then adhered to the piece of DSP with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
The sentiment was stamped onto scrap Basic White in Night of Navy Ink, fussy cut & adhered to the Card Front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Today’s card is an idea I’ve had in my head for a couple of days so of course, I had to try & recreate the idea onto a card. I’m happy to say that it worked out how I was one seeing it.
I die cut 4 different stitched rectangle shapes from a piece of Very Vanilla Cardstock with the Stitched Rectangle Dies before randomly stamping 3 of the shapes with images from Dragonfly Garden Stamp Set. The 4th one I stamped a sentiment from the same Stamp Set. All images were stamped in Night of Navy Ink.
The shapes were then arranged & adhered to a mat of Smokey Slate Cardstock.
A piece of Merry Merlot Cardstock was embossed with the Tasteful Textile 3D Embossing Folder, adhered to a Night of Navy Base Card before the Smokey Slate panel was adhered to the centre of the embossed Cardstock with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
I punched 3 x small dragonflies from scrap Merry Merlot Cardstock with the Dragonflies Punch prior to randomly adhering to the Card Front.
To complete the card, I adhered a Silver Metallic Pearls to the centre of each dragonfly & randomly to the panel.
I hope you like it as much as I did creating it.
Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions.

Today’s card has been taken from one I saw on Pinterest by Annette Elliot. I just loved the colours & the simple layout, although I have changed mine a little as you do. Thank you Annette for your inspiration.
I’ve used the sweet “A Little Lace” Stamp Set & one that I am wondering why I haven’t played with more as I am loving it. I can see a few more projects coming with this set.
Did you know the Medium Daisy Punch fits the large daisy in this set? Isn’t that fantastic?Did you notice I’ve used 4 of the retiring 2019-2021 In Colours – Terracotta Tile, Purple Posy Cardstocks, Purple Posy & Rococo Rose Stampin’ Blends plus Pretty Peacock Ink? Oh not to mention the Terracotta Tile Butterfly Gems to complete my card.
Both the Classic Label Punch (one of my favourite Punches) & the Layering Ovals Dies are retiring too. Check them out in the Last Chance Product List.
Actually, I’ve used a lot of retiring products to create my card today as I’ve just realised the Subtle 3D Embossing Folder is on the list too!
I do hope you enjoyed my share yesterday showcasing the lovely Rooted in Nature Stamp Set?
Today’s share is again a simple one created with a little bit of highlighting with our Sponge Daubers. I’ve gone back to the clean & simple creating of late & find that I am enjoying it. Our cards don’t have to be fancy to have a WOW!

Today’s card is one that I’ve created with the lovely new Butterfly Brilliance Collection which goes live today until the beginning of May. I am loving this collection & much to my surprise am enjoying creating for a class around this Collection but I am getting off the beaten track so to speak.
I embossed a piece of Mint Macaron with the Subtle 3D Embossing Folder prior to adhering to a Just Jade Base Card.
A piece of the Butterfly Bijou DSP was trimmed down prior to adhering to a piece of Basic White & then to the top part of the Card Front.
I die cut the stitched shape from Basic White with the Stitched So Sweetly Dies, stamped the sentiment from the Happy Thoughts Stamp Set in Memento Tuxedo Black Ink, die cut with the Layering Circles Dies & adhered to the centre of the stitched shape with Stampin’ Dimensionals. This was then adhered to the centre of the DSP panel with Stampin’ Dimensionals too.
I inked up the butterfly of choice, stamped onto a piece of Basic White in Memento Tuxedo Ink prior to colouring & blending with Mini Macaron Stampin’ Blends.
The image was die cut with the outline die from Butterfly Wings Dies before being adhered to the bottom of the die cut circle/shape with Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals on bottom of the wings only.
To complete the card I randomly adhere Shaded Spruce Holiday Rhinestone to the front of the card.
During March we are showcasing this lovely collection, so be sure to subscribe for more ideas on creating with this collection.
It’s a new week which means a new 2019-2021 In Colour. Purple Posy is the star of the show this week!
I knew immediately what I wanted to use to create my card today & that was the fun Playing with Patterns DSP. I’ve teamed it up with the fun Moving Along Stamp Set. A match made in heaven or so I think, but you be the judge.
A piece of Basic White was embossed with the Tasteful Textiles 3D Embossing Folder before being adhered to a Purple Posy Base Card.
I randomly stamped the little outline car image direct onto a piece of Basic White Cardstock in Highland Heather Ink. I then decided to highlight one of the cars, so I stamped the solid car image into one of the outline images. This set is a 2 step stamping set! Have I mentioned how much fun this stamp set is lol!
The stitched rectangle has been die cut from Magenta Madness with the Stitched So Sweetly Dies.
This panel was adhered to the left of the Card Front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
The sentiment was stamped onto scrap Basic White in Blackberry Bliss, punched with the Classic Label Punch & adhered to the lower right of the Card Front with Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals.
To complete the card I decided to add a couple of Clear Rhinestones.
This is my last day of showcasing the Seaside Spray In Colour. It is one of my very favourite colours.
For our card today, I’ve teamed up Seaside Spray with the lovey Daisy Lane Stamp Set along with the gorgeous Scallop Linen Ribbon.
As I loved the colour combination from my post on Thursday, I thought I would sort of go along the same lines again but this time I’ve teamed it up with Sahara Sand.
A piece of Sahara Sand was embossed with the Tasteful Textile 3D Embossing Folder, adhered to a piece of Basic White, Ribbon placed along the top of the embossed Cardstock & then adhered to the Seaside Spray Base Card.
The sentiment is from the Happy Thoughts Stamp Set & was stamped on a piece of Basic White Cardstock in Seaside Spray. The stem was stamped to the left of the sentiment in Sahara Sand, adhered to a layer of Blushing Bride before being adhered to the Card Front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
I stamped the large daisy twice, the medium daisy twice in Seaside Spray, punched with the Daisy & Medium Daisy Punches, adhered onto each other so that the petals were all off centre & adhered to the top of the stem with a Stampin’ Dimensional.
I then tied a small knot from the same Ribbon & adhered it to the centre of the daisy with a Mini Glue Dot. The card was completed with the lovely little Seaside Spray Butterfly Gems.
My card today was actually created with family members in mind & has already gone off in the post.
Thank you for joining me this week. It is always very much appreciated.
Today is the last day of showcasing the lovely Pretty Peacock 2019-2021 In Colour. I do hope you are enjoying the cards I’ve been creating with these In Colours over the past few weeks.
I’ve combined the “old”, so to speak, with the “new” for today’s share. Enjoy Every Moment Stamp Set is from the 2021 Jan-Jun Mini Catalogue.
The more I use this set, the more I am loving it. So much potential.
I randomly stamped 4 images from Enjoy Every Moment Stamp Set onto 4 x squares in Old Olive Ink. These squares were then adhered to 4 x scallop squares die cut from Coastal Cabana with the Layering Squares Dies before adhering to the left side of Basic White which has been embossed with the Subtle 3D Embossing Folder.
The sentiment from the same set was stamped onto scrap Basic White in Pretty Peacock Ink & die cut with the die from Stitched So Sweetly Dies before being adhered to centre of the 4 squares with Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals.
A very easy but effective card I think but more importantly I do hope you like it.
Well this didn’t happen yesterday instead spent the day in bed with Vertigo. I know what I would have sooner been doing lol.
Pretty Peacock screams the ocean – to me anyhow – & this was the perfect time to create a card for males, females or kids.
It was also the perfect time to dig out my very neglected Whale Done Stamp Set & Whale Builder Punch.
Of course when you have these 2 products, you have to do a little embossing which means I embossed a piece of Basic White Cardstock with the gorgeous Seabed 3D Embossing Folder before adhering to the Pretty Peacock Base Card.
The sentiment is from the Happiest of Birthdays Stamp Set, stamped in Pretty Peacock Ink prior to being die cut with an oval from the Layering Ovals Dies. It was then adhered to a Pretty Peacock scallop oval die cut with the same Dies.
The whale was stamped onto a piece of Basic White in Pretty Peacock Ink, punched with the Whale Builder Punch prior to adhering to the side of the oval with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
I am loving the simple layout & colours of this card! I hope you do too.
