Purple Posy Day #2

G’Day Friends,

Thanks so much for dropping by today!

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.

Ok enough of that, let’s get onto today’s card.

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.

Purple Posy Day #1

G’Day Friends,

It’s a new week which means a new 2019-2021 In ColourPurple 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.

Seaside Spray Day 3

G’Day Friends,

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.

Pretty Peacock Day #3

G’Day Friends,

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.

Seaside Spray Day #2

G’Day Friends,

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.

Pretty Peacock Day #2

G’Day Friends,

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.

Seaside Spray Day #1

G’Day Friends,

I’m playing catch up this week with showcasing the 2019-2021 In Colours.  As well as Pretty Peacock this week you will also see creations from the lovely Seaside Spray.

This colour would have to be one of my favourites as I am a real blue person & it reminds of the colours in the ocean.

Again I’ve kept the layout fairly simple allowing the colour to shine although I’ve added Sahara Sand with just a pop of Rococo Rose.

The stamp set is Garden Wishes from the JJ Mini Catalogue.

I tied a small bow from Linen Thread to pop it a little more.

Pretty Peacock Day #1

G’Day Friends,

Are you ready for our new 2019-2021 In Colour of Pretty Peacock this week?

I will be honest & say that I wasn’t a big fan of Pretty Peacock but after creating all my projects for the week that has changed very quickly.

I’ve kept my card fairly simple but that is the way to go if you are creating with males in mind.

I randomly blended Pretty Peacock Ink over a piece of Basic White with the lovely new & oh so fantastic Blending Brushes leaving White spaces here & there.

I then stamped the large yacht from the Sailing Home Stamp Set direct over the blended area in Pretty Peacock Ink followed by the 2 smaller yachts.

The birds were randomly stamped 3 times above the yachts once again in Pretty Peacock Ink.

The sentiment is from the Happiest of Birthdays Stamp Set & again stamped in Pretty Peacock Ink. 

Both these stamp sets are a couple of my “go to” sets.  Do you have ones like that?

Terracotta Tile #3

G’Day Friends,

Today is Day 3 of showcasing the lovely rich Terracotta  Tile  2019-2021  In  Colour?

Again, I’ve teamed it up with the thee Ornate Garden Specialty DSP along with the Ornate Layers Dies & the Ornate Style Stamp Set.

The sentiment is from the Level 1, Heal Your Heart Sale-a-Bration Stamp Set.

The sunflower was stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black, coloured & blended with Stampin’ Blends of Daffodil Delight, Crumb Cake & Old Olive.

The frame was then adhered to the left side of the Card Front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

The sentiment was stamped in Terracotta Tile, die cut with the Layering Ovals Dies before being adhering to a scallop oval die cut from Terracotta Tile with the same Layering Ovals Dies.

It was popped up to the Card Front with a Stampin’ Dimensional on the right side & Adhesive on the left side.

I finished the card off with a  cute little Terracotta Tile Butterfly Gems.

Have you noticed that I’ve been using these lovely little Butterfly Gems on all my cards?
