I am a little late in posting my card today as I meant to share it with you this morning but got a bit carried away with doing other things & it slipped my mind.
I’ve created my card using the challenge over at Global Design Project #87where this week they have the theme of Cooking, Baking and Making!
When I saw the challenge, “Perfect Mix” Stamp Set sprung immediately into my mind. This set is from the 2017 Occasions Catalogue & will be retiring at the end of May, so this is the perfect time to ink up this great set one last time.
I actually created this fold last week. To check out the instructions on how I created this fold, please click here. It is the perfect way to use some of that lovely DSP sitting on your desk before it retires.
I decided to play with “Playful Palette” DSP Stack which is another item retiring. I think it works in great with the set. I also used the “Playful Palette” Washi Tape which is on the inside of my card & the envelope. Gotta love it when everything matches.
To create my “shelf”, I stamped random images direct onto scraps of Very Vanilla Card in Memento Tuxedo Black Ink & coloured with the Sweet Sugarplum & Peekaboo PeachMarkers & Bender Pen before fussy cutting.
I punched a piece of DSP with the 2″ Circle Punch & adhered to the Very Vanilla side of a Lace Doily (2017 Occasions Catalogue) & cut the Doily in half.
A circle was die cut from Very Vanilla Card using the Layering Circles Framelits & running through the Big Shot before layering onto a Basic Black scallop circle which had been die cut using the same set of Framelits & running through the Big Shot.
The “shelf” was adhered to the bottom part of the scallop circle with Stampin’ Dimensionals before adhering the baking images, the oven mitt with a Stampin’ Dimensional while the others were adhered with Liquid Glue.
The sentiment was stamped onto a scrap of Very Vanilla Card in Memento Tuxedo Black Ink, fussy cut & adhered to the top of the “shelf”.
I do hope you like my card today, I am still undecided but happy with the final result. Why not head over to Global Design Project & play along. There is still a heap of time to do so.
I must admit that I don’t think this set has seen ink much at all. I am still trying to get through all my stamps before the new Catalogue comes out which means over the next couple of weeks, I will be showcasing some of my less stamped sets. Today’s card is just that!
I’m also happy to say that I’ve used the matching “Playful Palette” Washi Tape. Now all I need to do is create a card using the matching “Playful Palette” DSP Stack & I will be happy. This suite uses some of the 2016-2018 In Colours of Emerald Envy, Peekaboo Peach & Sweet Sugarplum.
To create my card, I added strips of the Washi Tape across the top of Very Vanilla CS before layering onto a piece of Basic Black CS & then to the Base Card of Peekaboo Peach.
I stamped the easel onto a scrap of Very Vanilla CS with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink, the stamped the “spat” Image into the centre with Emerald Envy, Sweet Sugarplum & Peekaboo Peach Inks before die cutting with the Layering Squares Framelits. The top of the easel was fussy cut while the legs were stamped direct onto the card. I stamped the sentiment direct over the stamped images in Memento Tuxedo Black Ink.
The “square” was adhere to the Card Front with Stampin’ Dimensionals, as was the top of the easel. To finish the card I added 3 x Basic Black Candy Dots (retired).
For the inside, 2 x strips of Washi Tape was adhered down the left hand side of Very Vanilla CS before being layered inside the Card.
I know it is a very simple & easy card but one that showcases this lovely set & the Washi Tape.
… for “Stampin’ Girls Gone Wild“. This is a challenge FB Page run by the very talented Connie Stewart. I’ve been a member of this page for some time but have never managed to play along with any of her challenges. As part of our challenge this week or weekend is to create a project for an online challenge. You can see my 1st challenge card from yesterday here.
I’ve been waiting to find the “perfect” opportunity to ink up the lovely little stamp set “Perfect Mix” from the 2017 Occasions Catalogue. This is perfect for anyone who loves baking – boys & girls, male or female.
I wasn’t too sure where I was heading with this card but after playing around with a few options, I decided I liked this one the best, it sort of come together better than the other bits I was playing with.

It is not often that I post on a Saturday as I usually have the day off from crafting but I’ve issued a challenge over on our FB Page that this weekend, we had to find a challenge, create a project & post it somewhere including our Page.
I’ve had my head going around the past couple of days thinking of a way to create a card using the challenge over atFMS. Once I sort of set my mind to what I wanted to do, I was surprised at how easy my card came together. As I hadn’t created a male card in some time, I also challenged myself to creating one for the males & think I have succeeded. Although I will admit that I wanted to emboss the background but completely forgot about that part until after I put it together. Oh, well!
Thank you once again to the team over at FMS for a great challenge – loved the layout!

My card today is one I cased from Naomi but changed it out to suit what I wanted to do.
In fact, not only did I use Washi Tape to create my card, but I’ve added strips of Peekaboo Peach & Basic Black Card mixed in. I used the “Faux Stitching” Technique on it which just happens to be one our techniques for November. Be sure to go & check out our Technique Page.
I must say one thing – since beginning this idea, I am finding I am actually using my WashiTape & will be happy that I may not have any left over come the end of the current Catalogue. Usually I have a heap of it left.
It’s quite a simple & easy card but one with a bit of a WOW!

I was playing around the other day & decided to have a play with Washi Tape & try & use it in an entirely different way. Mind you, I am still working on that project.
While playing, I had a light bulb moment! Why not try & use it with the Brick Wall EF? Out came the “Cherry on Top” Washi Tape (Retired) & off I went playing & cutting.
As I wanted the Washi Tape to be the star, I kept the remainder of the card very clean & simple. Don’t forget, you could even use scraps of DSP, Ribbon or even Cardstock. You will also need a little bit of patience, but I think it is worth it in the end.

I didn’t make it last Wednesday, a couple of things happened & it sort of went to the back burner, so today we’re back!
My card today has been created with retired Washi Tape, but you could always replace it with the lovely “Candy Lane” Page 5, “Warmth & Cheer“, Page 13, or the “Presents & Pinecones“, Page 20 of the 2016 Holiday Catalogue.
I created a simple Christmas Card, although it sure didn’t start out that way. Once I had decided on the Tape, I knew I wanted to keep it simple & let the Tape speak for itself. Sometimes it is best to keep things simple.

Today is “Washi Wednesday” which means we have a card using Washi Tape.
Again, it is a very easy card but with a little bit of a WOW. It is not my idea, as I found one on Pinterest but sort of turned it into my own. In fact I had picked up the “Pop of Pink”Washi Tape to use, remember seeing the card & went with it. Thank you so much for your inspiration.
If you don’t have Washi Tape, don’t forget you could try using strips of DSP to create the card.

It’s Wednesday today, which means its “Washi Wednesday” where we get to create cards using the lovely Washi Tape.
I did these cards a couple of weeks ago for some Thank You Cards for my customers. I ended up doing a couple of each which is unusual for me as I don’t often create a number of the same cards, but I love how quick & easy cards are able to be created using Washi Tape. You don’t have to have a couple of layers like I have, you could easily just create using your Base Card.

A huge thank you once again, to everyone who has been supporting us throughout our adventure/s. It is very much appreciated.
Each month we release a set of 3 cards using DSP (Designer Series Paper), along with a Sketch, Supplies, Measurements & Instructions. It is a way to get you to use up that lovely stash of Paper you have sitting in your cupboard. The sketches are able to be used over & over so that you are creating entirely different looks.
This month we are playing with the lovely DSP Stack – Playful Palette. I will admit although I love the papers I was finding them very hard to use. Now that I have cut into it, ideas are flowing!
Throughout the month, I will be creating more cards using this lovely paper, so be sure to pop back to check them out.
We hope you will join us this month. To purchase your Tutorial, please click on the Pretty Pattern Papers Page.
