Curvy Jar of Flowers

This card has a lovely image which gave me a chance to do some colouring using colours that complimented the paper that I used both on the outside and inside of this card. The floral stamp set will be carrying over to the new catalogue, but the sentiment is from the Quite Curvy set which will be retiring.

Card Base – Poppy Parade Cardstock 8 1/4″ x 5 7/8″
Layer 1 – Flowers for Every Season Designer Paper 5 5/8″ x 3 7/8″

The image on the 1st layer is coloured using Stampin’ Blends.

Stamp the flowers on the first layer at the bottom of the cardstock in the centre, then stamp the sentiment.

The papers in this project used last years in-colours as well as Poppy Parade which is the base for this card. So excited that I have now received this year’s new in-colours which I will be sharing with you on Saturday.

Until next time, happy crafting

Fancy Phrases Multi-purple layered Card

This is the card I made for Mother’s Day for my Mother-in-law, but could equally be used for a birthday, anniversary or just because. I love the corners which were made with the Detailed Trio punch, which I don’t remember to use nearly enough despite having to buy a second one because I lost mine and missed it so much.

Base Card – Gorgeous Grape Cardstock 8 1/4″ x 5 7/8″ scored and folded @ 4 1/8″
1st layer – Highland Heather Cardstock 5 3/4″ x 4″
2nd layer – Very Vanilla Cardstock 5 5/8″ x 3 7/8″

The image and the rhinestones were coloured with our brilliant Stampin’ Blends. I love that we can use the blends to colour our ribbons and embellishments so they match the cardstock and inks that we are using.

There is a very vintage feel to this stamp set and would be great for those of you who like to make shabby chic cards.

Until next time, happy crafting

Dragonfly Garden Card

This card as you will see from the inside is actually a Mother’s Day card, but I couldn’t post it until Mum had received it 😀 I bought this bundle especially to make a card for Mum, but this is part of a bigger Suite called the Dandy Garden Suite which includes the Garden wishes bundle together with Designer Series paper and lots of other things.

Dandy Garden Suite- January – June 2021 Mini catalogue pages 24-27

Card Base – Pretty Peacock Cardstock 8 1/4″ x 5 7/8″ scored and folded 4 1/8″
1st layer – Forever Greenery Designer Series Paper 5 5/8″ x 3 7/8″
2nd Layer – Basic White Cardstock 5 1/2″x 3 1/2″
Inside layer – Basic White cardstock 5 5/8″ x 3 7/8″

The Dragonflies were stamped in the chosen colour and then the ink was spread over the wings using Wink of Stella.

The flowers were coloured using Stampin’ Blends.

The photo doesn’t really show how beautiful the ribbon really is. It is two-tone Pretty Peacock and Old Olive and I really love it. I wish I had got some before. This will definitely be going in my hair soon 😀 What products do you love? What do you use your Stampin’ Up products for that isn’t necessarily what they were intended for?

Until next time, happy crafting

Fancy Phrases Birthday

Hello, it’s been a while. I am now almost completely recovered from my fall (still can’t eat an apple and my finger will never be the same again and currently still goes purple and swells if I use it too much 😆) and my youngest has gone back to school so I have my laptop back again. I am hoping to update my blog three times a week, so thank you for staying with me 😀

The ribbon was coloured with the dark Soft Sea Foam Stampin’ Blends. The image was coloured with light and dark Soft Sea Foam and Old Olive Stampin’ Blends.

I will be back on Saturday with another project for you.

Until then, happy crafting.

I liked this set as soon as I saw it. It is fun and is great for colouring. I haven’t used it as much as I would like, but as my family is now in self-isolation until my daughter’s test results come back, I will have time to play.
