Gold Thank You Eastern Palace Bundle Card

I adored how elegant this card by Katy Harrison is that I found on Pinterest. I recently remade it for my 2018-2018 Annual Catalogue Launch I made a few changes a few details to the card.

I used the Eastern Palace Speciality Paper strip on a Thick Very Vanilla Card base
 with the Eastern Gold Vinyl stickers that I cut in half tucked under the paper. For the medallion I used two of the Eastern Medallion Dies cut them using the Prescision Plate in the Big Shot and sniped it out from the card stock so it is a single piece. I layered on top of this a gold foil circle and a Very Vanilla circle with a stamped thank you from the Eatern Beauty Stamp Set with Basic Black Archival Ink. I used Lots of dimension to take this simple elegant card to the next level.

Berry Burst, Happy Birthday Gorgeous Card

I shared THIS card with you a few weeks ago and to I played with the background first before I was happy with it and while cleaning my desk I found the original piece that I  Ink Smooched it using Powder Pink Ink and even though it's not my favourite background I made another card.

 I stamped the roses in clusters using stamped off Berry Burst Ink, then poppy stamp also stamped in Sweet Sugarplum Ink and finally the leaf in Lemon Lime Twist Ink and added touches of Wink of Stella for some sparkle. I stamped the sentiment frame in Basic Black  Archival Ink and sentiment in Berry Burst Ink onto Whisper White card stock punched out with the Classic Label Punch. I layered the sentiment on Black Metallic Thread. The stamped piece is layered onto a Basic Black matt onto a Berry Burst card base.


These are the colours and Stamp set used for this project

Wood Textures Paper and Happy Birthday and Eclectic Layers Thinlits

A Male card with some Bling? I know it sound impossible but here is how I made it simple using Wood Textures Paper Stack and some scraps of Glimmer paper, Card Stock, Vellum and Ink.


I chose my favourite piece of the Wood Textures Paper Stack and Layered it on a piece of Island Indigo card stock. I used the Eclectic Layers geometric Thinlit and cut into a piece of Silver Glimmer Paper I then trimmed it out with Paper Snips to create the base for my sentiment. I cut HAPPY out from the Happy Birthday Thinlit in Bermuda Bay and Island Indigo once again in using the Big Shot trimming the bottom of the sentiment to separate it from the birthday portion, both these pieces were layered and offset. I stamped Birthday from the Birthday Delivery stamp set in Island Indigo ink onto a scrap of Vellum to let the Glimmer Paper shine through. The wood layered piece was then adhered to a Thick Whisper White card base using Stampin' Dimensionals.

Lovely Inside & Out with Color Theory Memories & More

I was inspired by a recent email from Stampin' Up! to use my Memories & More card to make projects other than Pocket Scrapbook pages. I have previously used Memories & More Color Theory cards to make THIS card and while I was picking cards out for that card this Camera card jumped out to me so I popped aside to make this card.


I paired the 3x4 camera card with another card that is 6x4 polka dots, which had a white strip on one side which I trimmed off and adhered to the Dapper Denim card base to make it look like  Polaroid picture. I used the Lovely Inside & Out stamp set to stamp the LOVELY in Berry Burst on the Camera Card which is layered on Berry Burst card stock and the Friend from the Lovely Word Framelits in Dapper Denim 3 times which I trimmed out of the frame and layered together. The Say Cheese sticker is from the same Memories & More Color Theory Pack and I just chopped it to finish off the card.

Using Tranquil Tide I stamped the HOORAY in Tranquil Tide also on Whisper White card stock punch with the 2" circle punch.

The color combination I have used is Soft Sky, Dapper Denim and Whisper White. I stamped the Baby Bear layers starting in opposite order so you can line up the arm holes for perfect alignment I used the detailed one first In Dapper Denim ink, the middle layer is stamped off Dapper Denim and the bottom layer in Soft Sky on Whisper White card stock which is layered on a piece of Dapper Denim. I embossed a piece of Soft Sky card stock using the Sparkle embossing folder in the Big Shot on a Thick Whispser White card base.

Lovely Inside & Out - 2017-2018 Annual Card Swap

I am very happy to have participated in a card swap with 11 other demonstrators of cards using new Products from the 2017-2018 Annual Catalogue. I am happy to have some great sample to be able to share with my customers at classes.


To make my card I have used the very versatile Lovely Inside & Out stamp set. I started with the Very Vanilla card stock layer stamping in Fresh Fig and then a stamped off image and Tranquil Tide stamped off above it as well. This piece was layered on both Tranquil Tide and Fresh Fig card stocks before adhering it to the Thick Very Vanilla Card base I stamped the third image in stamped off Lemon Lime Twist above and below the panel. The sentiment is from the Lovely Inside & Out stamp set which is stamped in Fresh Fig ink on Lemon Lime Twist card stock punched with the Classic Label Punch and the co-ordinating Lovely Words Thinlits and Stitched Shapes Framelilts also in Lemon Lime Twist card stock in the Big Shot and adhered them to the stamped panel completing the card.

Climbing Orchid Bundle with Fresh Florals Card

The Climbing Orchid stamp set is one of my Favs from the new 2017-2018 Annual Stampin' Up! Catalogue (Page 21). This card is my first play with it and I have so many more ideas in my head to make and share with you really soon.


 For this card I used purples and pinks - Wisteria Wonder, Sweet Sugarplum, Berry Burst (a little obsessed with this colour atm) and a touch of Crushed Curry. I stamped all the layers for the orchid onto Whisper White card stock- the Berry Burst layer is stamped off and then die cut them with the matching Orchid Builder Framelits in the Big Shot. I also cut the oval to layer the orchid on from the Stitched Shapes which is sponged with the Burry Burst ink and added the orchid stem in Early Espresso ink.  I assembled the orchid on the sponged oval using Stampin' Dimensionals this was layered on a piece of Berry Burst paper from the Fresh Floral Paper Stack then layer on Whisper White card stock and adhered to the Whipser White card base. To finish the card I added the sentiment also from The Climbing Orchid stamp set and some matching Color Theory Glitter Enamel Dots.

Magical Mermaid with Color Theory Memories & More Card

I was commissioned to make a birthday card for lovely young lady I know and knew the NEW Magical Mermaids set would perfect. I paired the stamp set with a few cards from Memories & More Color Theory Card Pack. This card are intended for Pocket scrapbooking but are perfect for many MORE other projects as well. I stamped the Mermaid on a scrap of Vellum with Versamark ink and coated in Gold Emossing powder and melted with the Heat Tool. I coloured the mermaid using the colours of ink from Color Theory Suite - Dapper Denim, Old Olive, Berry Burst and Crushed Curry with a touch of Powder Pink for her skin using a damp Aqua Painter I hand cut her out and added to the wave card. I also Gold Heat Embossed the sentiment on the same card and added some solid Mermaids stamped with Versamark ink and stamped off Seaweed in Old Olive. This card was layered with a Berry Burst card that reminded me of scales.

These pieces were layered onto a piece of Whisper White card that had bubbles stamped in Dapper Denim and Seaweed in Olive and layered onto Berry Burst and a Thick Whisper White Card Base. For a finishing touch I added a number of the matching Color Theory Glitter Enamel Shapes.

I couldn't leave the inside of the card naked so added a stamped off Berry Burst Mermaid and Dapper Denim sentiment also from the Magical Mermaid Set.
