My Journal

This is another book I covered a couple of weeks ago.  They are great for your notes, etc.  I am always asked “where did I buy my book?”

Again, as with my last notebook, I have used retired DSP.  Yep, you have probably gathered – I have lots of the stuff left, but it is all good as I use it for the markets, my volunteer card class & also for family.  Great way to use it all up!

The colours for the journal were taken from the Ribbon, which was hanging in my stash from years ago & sort of just jumped out & into my hands!003blog

After covering the book with retired “Urban Garden” DSP, I added a bit of Night of Navy CS down the spine.  I thought the colours would pick up the blue in the DSP.  I then added the Ribbon down the front so that it worked as a Bookmark too.

I stamped the image shape from “Everything Eleanor” Stamp Set direct onto Whisper White CS in Chocolate Chip Ink.  The flowers from Petite Petals were stamped in Chocolate Chip & Marina Mist Inks, punched with the corresponding Petite Petals Punch & adhered to the top of the stamped shape with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I rounded the bottom left corner of the Whisper White & the Chocolate Chip Layer with the Project Life Corner Punch prior to adhering Ribbon across the bottom part of the stamped Whisper White.  The Chocolate Chip Matt was adhered to the Whisper White & finally to the notebook front cover.

My Journal” was created using MDS, printed onto a scrap piece of Whisper White CS, adhered to a mat of Chocolate Chip CS prior to being adhered to the front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

To complete the front, I added small Pearls to the centre of the flowers & one either side of “My Journal“.

Blues & Browns are some of my favourite colour combinations & I don’t think you can ever get bored with them.

Until next time, Happy Stampin!



Happy Birthday Wishes

This card was created for a friend of mine for her birthday early last month.  Yep, I’ve just gotten round to posting it.  Where does the time go?

I did see the card on Pinterst & thought I would have a go.  Thank you so much for your inspiration.

I run a piece of Whisper White through the BS using Decorative Dots EF.  This was he adhered to a piece of Soft Sky Card & finally to the Base Card – Whisper White.003---blog

The vase was created by using a Framelit from the Ovals Collection & then embossing with the Beautifully Baroque EF prior to adhering to Base Card.

I stamped 3 x large flowers from Flower Shop & 3 x small flowers from Petite Petals in Pink Pirouette, punched with the corresponding Pansy & Petite Petals Punches.  The smaller flowers were adhered to the centre of the larger flowers with Stampin’ Dimensionals prior to adhering to card with Stampin’ Dimensionals & placing Pearl Basic Jewel to the centre of each flower.

The leaves were punched using the Bird Builder Punch from Wild Wasabi Card & randomly adhered to the card.

Happy Birthday Wishes” from Petite Pairs, was stamped straight onto Wisher White Card in Melon Mambo Ink, punched out with the Extra-Large Oval Punch prior to adhering to card with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I do apologise for not having any measurements or instructions for today’s card, but the list of supplies I used may be found below.

Until next time, Happy Stampin’
