Sweet Sugarplum and Rich Razzleberry Blooms


I just love the new stamp set - Blooms &  Wishes.

I knew exactly how I was going to use the stamps as soon as I saw the the 2016/17 Annual Catalogue.

The colour palette I worked with is a world away from what I normally opt for, but I do love the result:-


I opted for shades of Rich Razzleberry, Pink Pirouette, Melon Mambo and Sweet Sugarplum, by loading the whole stamp with Pink Pirouette and then simply sponging the other colours onto the stamp before laying down the image.  Each flower is slightly different.

Its a very pretty set and I do love it.  I know its one which will get a lot of use.

I used layers of Rich Razzleberry, Sweet Sugarplum and Whisper White cardstock to create this 5 1/2" x 5 1/2" inch card.

The sentiment comes from the set called Hopeful Thoughts.

Hope you like it.

Thank you for stopping by today.

Floral Affection Embossing for Quick But Pretty Cards


My collection of embossing folders is slowly growing, and this card is made using one of a pair (so real value for money) which are called the Floral Affection Textured Impressions Embossing Folders.

This is such an effective yet really quick way to put together an eyecatching little card.  This one has been crafted using Watermelon Wonder card stock with the top layer having been layered on a piece of Whisper White to co-ordinate with the white heat embossed sentiment :-




Finished with a scattering of pearl embellishments and some pretty punched flowers, I can tell you that I put this card together in about five minutes.  I seen numerous cards using this embossing folder, executed in the same manner as this one on Pinterest and social media and am simply unable to credit anybody.  So I am sorry about that.  But this is my version using my preferred colour choice.

Members of my Reward Club will be receiving the Floral Affection Embossing Folders free (worth £8.95) next month, after I have closed my June Reward Club.   To find out more about my Reward Club, please click on the link along the top of my Blog.

Thank you for visiting today.

Pink and Pretty Baby Bear - Correctly Stamped This Time !!


I was quite amazed to discover right at the end of filming my tutorial giving instructions on how to create this sliding pop-up card, that the original Baby Bear I stamped and shared, indeed showcased here, was not complete !!!   I didn't notice and at the time of creating the original Blog post, nobody else seemed to either !



It would appear that in my excitement to create the card and share, I missed out the third and final step of stamping the little fellow.  How remiss of me.  So this feminine version is sporting the final stage of stamping which gives clearer definition.   Compare the one above with the one below (which actually still looks rather lovely).


 
As I received a lot of requests, I have made a video tutorial which shows you how to create this sliding pop-up card yourself:-

Beautiful Baby Bear Sliding Pop Up Card !

Since this little bear arrived, I have been thinking of all the different types of cards that would be great to showcase it.

Well after much consideration - I decided upon a Sliding Pop Up Card !

Here is my little guy in all his glory.




I absolutely adore this stamp set called Baby Bear and as far as I am concerned, it's a keeper.  Stamped in three stages and three different  colours, the bear just is adorable.   He is created using the three step stamp technique.  I used Sahara Sand, Crumb Cake and Chocolate Chip.

The chest of drawers behind my bear is made using the retired Decorative Label Punch.

It makes a great Baby Card and would be adorable in shades of Pink too.

I love inter-active cards so as soon as I found a great tutorial by Kim Score for the basics, I knew I had to have a go.

I shall be posting my own version using all the products here, should the demand justify it.

It was surprisingly easy.   I just love how it turned out.  Hope you do too.

Thank you for stopping by today.

Window Card in Pop of Pink!


I thought I would share this card with you today:-

Its a window card:-




I used my new Sweet and Sassy Framelits Heart Dies to die cut the heart aperture on a piece of designer series paper from the Pop of Pink Speciality 12 x 12 Designer Series Paper pack and then used two to create the black heart that frames the aperture.  On the base layer of card I stamped my sentiment which is from the Happy Happenings stamp set.  Next, I adhered some clear acetate to the back of the aperture and then applied some foam strips to the acetate to create a raised window.  Further strips were added to the edges and then adhered to the base card.

I finished up with some Whisper White Thick Baker's Twine and punched out three little black heart embellishments.

I hope you like my little sweet and sassy card !

Thank you very much for stopping by today.  Have a lovely day, whatever you are doing.
