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!
Thanks so much for dropping by today! It’s been a little while since my last post but hopefully I will be more consistent with the posting.
Over on my FB Page & in my VIP Group, I posted a This or That photo with 2 different Stamp Sets, asking which one they would like to see projects created for. Rooted in Nature was the clear winner BUT that is not to say that I won’t be sharing projects for Sailing Home!
Today’s share is a simple one created with a very simple masking technique.
The sentiment is from the Happiest of Birthdays Stamp Set & was stamped in Night of Navy.

It’s Day 2 of showcasing the lovely soft 2019-2021 In Colour of Purple Posy.
When creating with this colour, I find it hard to go past the fun Playing with Patterns DSP. I also love the cute little Moving Along Stamp Set which I used Monday as well. I think they are made for each other but I will let you decide on that one.
I cut a strip of DSP, adhered it to a piece of Basic white Cardstock before wrapping a piece of Night of Navy Ribbon down the edge of the DSP. This Ribbon is from the Playing with Patterns Ribbon Combo Pack.
The layer of Basic White was then adhered to a piece of Night of Navy before being adhered to the Purple Posy Base Card.
I stamped the little chopper onto scrap Basic White in Night of Navy Ink, coloured & blended with the Purple Posy Stampin’ Blend Combo before die cutting a circle with the Layering Circles Dies. I cut a scallop circle from Night of Navy with the same dies.
These pieces were adhered together prior to adhering to Card Front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
The sentiment was stamped with Night of Navy Ink, punched with the Classic Label Punch & adhered to the left side of Card Front with Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals.
In my photo I finished the card off with Night of Navy Rhinestones from the Holiday Rhinestones but have since changed them out to the Playing with Patterns Resin Dots of Purple Posy which softened the whole look of the card more.
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.
I am well & truly playing catch up now as this is my 2nd post for today!
It’s Day #2 of Seaside Spray In Colour which is one of my favourites. Do you have a favourite?
I’ve been digging out a few neglected Stamp Sets from my shelves & playing with them once again.
Today it is To a Wild Rose’s turn. It’s been teamed up with Blushing Bride, Just Jade plus Seaside Spray. Not forgetting Basic White of course.
I must admit, I am loving these colours & may have to play some more with this colour combination.
The flower is a 3 step image & was stamped onto a piece of Basic White in Seaside Spray Ink, stamping off twice, once & then direct onto the Cardstock. I filled in the gaps with the little image from the same set which I must admit has been stamped in Petal Pink BUT only because I picked up the wrong colour. This will teach me not to put Inks away when I have finished stamping with them, but it does blend in.
I then randomly chopped this stamped piece into 3’s prior to adhering to a piece of Blushing Bride Cardstock, Basic White & then to the Seaside Spray Base Card.
The sentiment was stamped in Seaside Spray Ink onto Basic White, die cut with the small oval from Layering Ovals Dies & adhered to a Just Jade scallop oval which was die cut from the same Dies prior to adhering to Card Front with Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals.
To complete the card, I randomly adhered 3 x Seaside Spray Butterfly Gems to the Card Front.
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.
