Gorgeous Leaves Bundle meets Watercolor Shapes - Stampin' Up!

I spent the rainy weekend crafting away and created this awesome stamped one sheet wonder with the Gorgeous Leaves stamp set and the Watercolor Shapes stamp set. I just love stamping whole sheets, don't you?

The colour combination I chose was Night of Navy, Calypso Coral, Bumblebee, Sahara Sand & Crumb Cake. I LOVE how it turned out!

After I had finished stamping I decided to cut it down to 2x full card fronts (10cm x14.4cm), and 4x half card fronts (10cm x 7.2cm). I matted the panels with Night Of Navy cardstock and used Sahara Sand bases. Finally I finished off with some sentiment labels, die cuts, twine and a few little gems. What do you think?

Happy Birthday William! Feat. Sweet Little Stockings Stamp Set!

Today is a super exciting day for me because it is my beautiful boy's 14th birthday!

My son William really loves animals, and he would love to get a golden retriever and a grey cat! This is something we often talk about, making up names for the imaginary pets! Maybe one day he will be lucky enough to have those pets!

So it goes without saying that for William's birthday card I just could not go past the Sweet Little Stockings stamp set! 

I absolutely love the animals in the stamp set, and there are elements within the stamp set which allows for cards other than Christmas themed cards.

As you can see I have used the party hat and present images to turn this card into a birthday card, along with the cat and dog (obviously). I went with a woodgrain print DSP from the Beauty Of The Earth paper pack as well as a nice blue pattern from the same pack, to create the concept of the animals peeking through holes in a fence to say hello!

You can head over to my Stampin' Up store to pick up these goodies and have a play yourself!

Guest Designer for Colour Inspiration Challenge #CI108

 Ok folks, todays blog post is super exciting for me!

I am so chuffed to be invited as guest designer for the Colour Inspiration Challenge #CI108 and can I just say how AMAZING the colour combo is!

The colours chosen for the challenge are Daffodil Delight, Polished Pink, Fresh Freesia, Balmy Blue, Coastal Cabana, and oh my goodness these look so amazing together!

For my card I wanted to play on the colour blocking look of the staircase along with the white handrail in the inspiration graphic - here's what I came up with!

I have featured the Flowers Of Friendship bundle, and the Brick & Mortar 3D embossing folder. The sentiment is from the Peaceful Moments stamp set and the label is from the Scalloped Contours dies.

You can head over to my online store to pick up these items and recreate this card!

Have You Tried Stamping On Coloured Cardstock?

 I have revisited a lovely and simple technique of stamping directly onto coloured cardstock.

The cardstock colour is So Saffron and this allows for a lovely vintage look to the card. I have used Mossy Meadow, Blackberry Bliss and Rich Razzleberry for the stamping which features the Sale-A-Bration stamp set Delicate Dahlias.

What do you think? How about you give it a try!

His & Hers Cards - featuring the Beauty Of The Earth Suite!

 Another card I created on Nancy's mystery stamping class is this fabulous Blackberry Beauty card which features the stunning DSP.


I just love this card sketch and so I thought it would be a great opportunity to do another His & Hers card!

Here's the masculine version I came up with using the Beauty Of The Earth Suite.

I also created a YouTube tutorial for you to follow along and create the card yourself at home!
