Stamp the large flower image from the 'Words of Cheer' stamp set onto Basic White card using Tuxedo Black Ink. Die cut using the Christmas Cheer Dies. Colour the images with Stampin' Blends. Attach to the card using Stampin' Dimensionals. Die cut some various leaves from the Polished Pink 2021-2023 In Colour Shimmer Vellum using the Christmas Cheer Dies.

Today I used the Daisy Garden Stamp set and combined it with the Ornate Floral 3D Embossing Folder, Pattern Party DSP (a Host Rewards item) and the Layering Circles Dies.

Stamp the Daisy Garden stamp with Versamark Ink onto a card front sized piece of Basic White and heat emboss with White Stampin' Emboss Powder. Use a Blending Brush and apply Pacific Point ink to the embossed piece. Use a Sponge Dauber to apply Daffodil Delight ink to the centres of the flowers. Wipe off any excess ink with a tissue. Use the Layered Circles dies to cut a circle from this stamped image. Use one of the slightly larger scalloped Layered Circles Dies and cut a scalloped circle from Basic Black card. Adhere the stamped and embossed circle to the scalloped circle with Liquid Glue and attach to the card with Stampin' Dimensionals.

Stamp the sentiment from the Inspired Thoughts stamp set onto a strip of Basic Black card using Versamark ink and heat emboss with White Stampin' Emboss Powder. Adhere to the card with Stampin' Dimensionals. Add Matte Black Dots to the card.

You're Too Kind - Quiet Meadow - #GDP308

You're Too Kind - Quiet Meadow - #GDP308


Hello again! Today's card is one I have entered into the Global Design Challenge #GDP308 Case the Designer Wilma de Korte this week. I was inspired by the general design and the floral elements from the card.

For this card I used the Quiet Meadow Stamp Set, Be Dazzling 6" x6" Specialty Paper, Tasteful Textile Embossing Folder and Stampin' Blends (for colouring Vellum and the stamped flowers).

Instructions:

- Use a piece of Basic White A4 card, cut in half lengthwise and folded. Mat with a piece of Be Dazzling Specialty Paper attached with Stampin' Dimanesionals. Using a piece of Basic White card, emboss with the Tasteful Textile Embossing Folder and splatter Polished Pink ink. 

- Attach progressive shorter strips of Basic White, Vellum (coloured with Stampin' Blends and Isopropyl Alcohol), Be Dazzling Specialty Paper. Attach the pieces together using Stampin' Seal. Stamp the sentiment from the Quiet Meadow stamp set onto a piece of Basic White card and also attach with Stampin' Seal.

Stamp some flowers from the Quiet Meadow set onto Basic White card using Tuxedo Black Ink. Colour the images with Pale Papaya and Polished Pink Stampin' Blends, and move the colour around a little with Isopropyl Alcohol using either a brush or Water Painter. Attach the flowers to the card using Mini Glue Dots and Stampin' Dimensionals.  

- Cut a piece of White Glittered Organdy Ribbon in half lengthwise and tie into a bow and attach near the flowers with a Mini Glue Dot. Add some 2021-2023 In Colour Jewels to the flowers and the card.

Giving thanks for you - Butterfly Brilliance, A Wish for Everything & Artistically Inked - #JAI570

Giving thanks for you - Butterfly Brilliance, A Wish for Everything & Artistically Inked - #JAI570


Hello again! Today's card is one I have entered into the Just Add Ink #570 Colour Challenge this week.The challenge this week involved using Night of Navy, Coastal Cabana and White. 

For this card I used a few Stampin' Up!® stamp sets. I used the Butterfly Brilliance stamp, A Wish for Everything and the Artistically Inked set. I used the Brilliant Wings Dies and the Suit and Tie Dies.

I also want to thank Just Add Ink for my selection as Winner for last week's "Just Add N" Challenge for THIS card. I am incredibly grateful to the team for my selection. ❤️

Instructions:

- Use a piece of Night of Navy A4 card, cut in half lengthwise and folded. 

- Cut a piece of Watercolour paper and ink up the large Artistically Inked stamp set with Coastal Cabana ink. Spray the stamp with water from a Spritzer prior to stamping, then press down onto the Watercolour paper. Repeat this step with the Coastal Cabana ink until happy with the result. Repeat the same process with the Night of Navy ink. 

- Add some water to the Watercolour paper using both a Spritzer and Water Painter to move the colour around more as well as to add splatter. Splatter some Wink of Stella ink onto the Watercolour card. Once dry, attach this piece to the Night of Navy base with Stampin' Dimensionals. 

- Using a piece of White Vellum card, stamp a large butterfly image from the Brilliant Wings stamp set with Versamark ink and heat emboss with White Stampin' Emboss Powder. Die cut the butterfly using the Brilliant Wings Dies. Attach the butterfly to the card using Mini Glue Dots.

- Use the 'A Wish for Everyone' stamp and stamp the sentiment onto Coastal Cabana card using Versamark ink and heat emboss with White Stampin' Emboss Powder. Use a strip of Night of Navy card and mat under the sentiment strip and attach both to the front of the card using Stampin' Dimensionals. (NB- for this I used a leftover scrap of Night of Navy that had been cut using the Suit and Tie Dies).

- Add some Wink of Stella to the butterfly wings and add some Holiday Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the card.
