Pick a Pattern Card Set


Don't you love it when a card design comes together really quickly? It's even better when only minimal supplies are required to make it (in this case, Pick a Pattern DSP and the Lovely Inside and Out Bundle). I had such fun making these that I kept going, and made a set of 6!


This Patterned Paper is lots of fun. The funky, hand-drawn designs are really cool, and the colour palette is a bit different too. I think the Lovely Words thinlits work really well with it.

TIP: I cut my paper to 4" x 6" and then trimmed 1/4" off the 6" length. I used the trimmed-off strips to decorate my cards.

A Little Wild Thailand Swap


One of the fun parts of Stampin' Up! Incentive Trips is swapping with other Demonstrators from around the world. I made 25 of these cards to take to Thailand, and I came home with 25 different cards, each one uniquely and beautifully made. It's a lovely memento of the trip and a great way to get inspiration.
This is the inside of my card (I had to include his cute little bottom!):


I've used one of my favourite sets in the new Catalogue - the very cute "A Little Wild" stamp set. I've used Soft Sky as my base colour, with lots of white, a splash of Crumb Cake and Pear Pizzazz, Calypso Coral and So Saffron.
I'm hoping there are 25 people out there who were happy to receive my card!

CCMC467 Bouquet Bunch


It's Thursday, and that means it's Challenge time again over at www.createwithconnienadmary.com.
This week is a colour challenge, and these are the colours we had to work with:  
I struggled a bit with this one, and I'm still not sure I'm entirely happy with the end result. I really like the colour combo, but I don't think I did it justice.
  • There's not a lot of stamping on this card (maybe that's why I don't like it!). The dies are from the Bouquet Bunch framelits.
  • I used the Fine Tip glue and some Dazzling Diamonds glitter to make the centres of my flowers sparkly.
  • The sentiment is from the Beautiful Bouquet stamp set
  • I've used the Fresh Florals Designer Series Paper in Berry Burst
  • Did you know that you can make scalloped rectangles using the Layering Squares framelits? I used the partial die-cutting method to do this
I hope you like my card. Check out what the other talented stampers have come up with HERE. Don't forget you can play along over on the facebook page!

Just a Note with Crafting Forever


In my humble opinion, the Crafting Forever stamp set is a must-have for all crafters. This is one set I'll be keeping, even after it retires. The images and sentiments are just so perfect. They pretty much sum up everything I love about crafting.

But, as you can see, you can use it to make cards for non-crafters too. I've used the pens image to make this clean and simple card. I actually made a bunch of these in lots of different colours, but the Lemon Lime Twist one was my favourite. I stamped the pens in black and used a marker to colour parts of the images.

The sentiment is a stamp from the Soft Sayings Card Kit. This stamp set is only available as part of the kit. Check it out in the Product links below. The kit is fabulous value!

Good Friends are Hard to Find


I just love large stamps - they make it so easy to whip up a quick card. This one from the Lovely Friends stamp set certainly fits the bill!
My colour combination is Tranquil Tide and Berry Burst. I've stamped off the leaves and lighter part of the flowers.
I've also added a Glitter Enamel Dot to the flower centres. Look at how pretty these are:


I've been sticking them on everything!
The crackle-effect paper in the background is from the Color Theory Paper Stack.

CCMC466 Watts of Occasions


It's Thursday, and that means it's Challenge time again over at www.createwithconnienadmary.com.
This week is a sketch challenge, and this is the sketch we had to work with:  
It took me a little while to get my head around this sketch! The trapezoidal shape really threw me for a bit!
  • I've used the Watts of Occasions stamp set. This one went straight onto my 'must have' list. I just know I'm going to use it a WATT hahaha
  • I stamped my globes on Glossy White cardstock, cut them out and used a Powder Pink and Crushed Curry marker to highlight the filaments
  • The 'glow' for the lightbulbs is a stamp from the Lovely Inside and Out stamp set
  • The Designer Series Paper on this card is from the Whole Lot of Lovely Pack. It has stunning floral designs but also bold, graphic prints too, in gorgeous colour combinations. I've used the black and white spots and also the stripy background
I hope you like my card. Check out what the other talented stampers have come up with HERE. Don't forget you can play along over on the facebook page!

Wood Crate Thank you Gift


These were the thank you gifts I gave out at my Open House Catalogue Launch. They were quick and easy to make using the Wood Crate framelits and co-ordinating stamp set (available as a bundle). I made them in all 5 new In Colors. Lemon Lime Twist proved to be the favourite on the day.

The Wood Textures Designer Series Paper Stack makes these crates look so realistic. You can get 1 crate out of a 6"x6" sheet. You need to cut 2 pieces to make the crate. The second piece will be missing a small part of the bottom, but when you layer them together, you can't tell. I also added a layer of cardstock to the base for more stability.

The gusseted Cellophane bags are the perfect size to fill with a few yummy treats. Add a tag and a couple of embellishments and you are done!
