Watercolor Shapes Background

Hi everyone, sharing some cards I made using the Watercolor Shapes stamp set.  I got the inspiration for this background from a shirt that I recently purchased.  The shirt had a lot of freehand doodling on it which was a complete disaster when I tried to replicate it, so I ended up using some images from the Biggest Wish and the Lovely & Lasting stamp sets.


The large circle image in the Watercolor Shapes stamp set was a lot larger than I wanted, so I die cut some Post-it Notes with a circle and stamped the image on top of these.  This had the result of reducing the size of the stamped circle.  I also masked some of the large solid color circles.  

For the non solid circles I stamped the images using the Post-it Note circles, this created circle shape that I was trying to create.


I could not decide on the base color card so played around a little.  The Cajun Craze card base is my favourite.


The sentiment panel was made using the Biggest Wish stamp set and the Deckled Rectangles.

I added a piece of Metallic Mesh Ribbon behind the sentimen rectangle and added some Rhinestones to finish the cards.


I hope you enjoyed these projects.

Timeless Greetings

Hi everyone, sharing some cards I made with the additional pieces from the Timeless Greetings Kit. I also wanted to see what I could create using the stamp set.  I created some Embellishment Clusters (I have loved creating these) for the cards, these are all the same however I did created some different backgrounds.


For my first project I created a background using Matte Finish Embossing Paste and the Artistic Mix Decorative Masks.  I created an Embellishment Cluster by using 1cm wide strips of Early Espresso and Mint Macaron Cardstock, a piece of Cajun Craze Designer Series Paper from the He's The Man Specialty Designer Series Paper Pack and a Gold Metallic Rectangle made using the Stitched Rectangle Dies.  The other elements are from the Timeless Greetings Kit.  Some Linen Thread was added behind the Embellishment Cluster and 3 of the Adhesive Back Studs from the Timeless Greetings Kit to finish the card.


For these next 4 cards I used the Metal Plate 3D Embossing Folder.  For two of the backgrounds I inked the embossing folder with Early Espresso and embossed of Crumb Cake cardstock, I did one side of he embossing folder and then the other side.  This create two quite different backgrounds.  For the other two backgrounds I embossed Crumb Cade cardstock and dragged the ink pad over the embossed piece.  I did a front side and a back side, again creating two quite different backgrounds.

I also created some additional elements using the stamp set and the Stitched Shapes Dies.  To create the clocks I stamped the clock using Soft Suede ink and also on top of this I stamped the large circle from the Watercolor Shapes stamp set.  I then die cut the clock using the circle from the Stitched Shapes Dies.





I hope you enjoyed these projects.

Wishing You a Happy Ever After

Hi everyone, sharing another project that I made at my creative New Year's Eve party.

I used another sheet from the Splendid Days Specialty Designer Series Paper Pack for this card.  I have had this paper pack for months so I was wanting to use it on the cards I am making for sale at work with the proceeds going to the Cancer Council.

The sentiment is from the Celebrating You stamp set which was stamped using Black Memento ink on a stitched circle cut using the Stylish Shapes Dies.

The embellishments used are the Sprig Trinkets and the Baker's Twine Essentials Pack.

I hope you enjoyed this project.

Wishes for a Beautiful Birthday

Hi everyone, Happy New Year!

I spent New Year's Eve at home creating cards, this is my happy place.  I will be posting more projects I made over the next couple of days.


I made a slimline card by using the Kraft 6" x 6" Paper Pack. Making card bases using this Paper Pack is so easy, just score at 3" and fold in half, instant card base.

I cut a piece of Copper Foil Sheet at 13.5cm x 4.5cm and then die cut it using the Stitched Greenery Die.  This die does not actually cut out the paper but cuts this gorgeous leaf and branch image into the paper.  I then cut a piece of pattern paper from the Splendid Day Specialty Designer Series Paper at 10cm x 5cm.  I matted these two onto pieces of Basic White cut a 13.8cm x 4.8cm and 10.3cm and 5.3cm.

The sentiment from the Framed Florets stamp set was stamped using Black Memento ink on a stitched circle cut using the Stylish Shapes Dies.

The embellishments I used are a punch vellum leaf, Open Leaf Trinket, Glittered Organdy Ribbon and Champagne Rhinestones Basic Jewels.

I hope you enjoyed this project.

December Card Class Projects

Hi everyone, sharing the projects from December's Card Class that I held last weekend.


The first card usings products from the Fittings Florets Collection.  I love the Fitting Florets Designer Series Paper, which is only available until the 4 January 2023.  


The second project is a little box that holds 6 little Santa Chocolates.  I used the Lights Aglow Specialty Designer Series Paper on this project.  I love all the Very Vanilla and Gold with the little pop of colour from the Santa Chocolates.


The final project is an idea that I cased from Chelsea Christensen, it is a terrific way to use up the small scraps of leftover pattern paper.

I hope you enjoyed these projects.
