Highland Heather Congratulations card

Hello! I thought you might like to see this congratulations card I made for my friends’ wedding anniversary… I haven’t used the Detailed Floral Thinlits dies for ages so I decided to give them some overdue attention. My friends’ wedding colours included purple so Highland Heather was my first choice. I used Whisper White for […]

Balmy Blue lip balm box

Hello. The title of today’s blog could be a tongue twister, couldn’t it? This is what it’s all about, a cute lidded box for an EOS lip balm made from Balmy Blue card and DSP… The box base is made from card measuring 7 & 1/2 inches by 5 & 1/2 inches. Score on the […]

Christmas money gift wallets

Hello. If you read yesterday’s blog post you might remember that I punched shapes out of the glimmer paper layer of my cards to use on other projects. Well, this is how I used the Tailored Tag punched paper… Sometimes it’s easier to gift cash at Christmas, especially if you know that the recipient is […]

Card layout challenge

Hello! I set myself a little challenge to make 2 different cards with the same layout, but to see how different they could look – even if I used only 1 designer series paper pack. Firstly I made a Birthday card in Lovely Lipstick and Powder Pink For this one I used Powder Pink as […]

Petal Passion Best Wishes

As promised in yesterday’s post, here’s a brighter and cheerier card made using the Petal Passion Designer Series Paper… This time I decided to use my Light Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Blend to colour the background of the paper then used a variety of other blends for the flowers.  The leaves were coloured with Light Old […]

Petal Passion Sympathy Card

I have absolutely loved every design within the Petal Passion Designer Series Paper pack.  But I must admit the large flowers sheet has been my favourite, especially when coloured using the Stampin’ Blends.  I’ve used almost every colour on it for various projects. However, with almost the last of it I decided to just colour […]

Quick & Easy bunting

With the upcoming Royal wedding to celebrate, I decided to make some red, white & blue bunting. However my sewing isn’t great & I didn’t have fabric on hand. So I used some card stock. I also couldn’t be bothered with cutting triangles so I used a 2 inch punch instead… I punched 24 circles […]

Happy Birthday to the best sister in all the land!

As promised in yesterday’s blog, here’s a rather more feminine card using the World’s Best Trophy stamp set… Instead of using the trophy I used the birthday cake.  My card base is Powder Pink measuring 29 x 10.5 cm which was scored at 14.5 cm to create a portrait tent fold.  The next layer is […]

Flower Shop Lip Balm Box

As promised, here’s the little gift box I made to coordinate with the Thank You card I shared with you yesterday. As you can see it was made to fit a lip balm tin (a Vaseline one also fits!) and is kept closed with a ribbon tied in a bow.  The ribbon sits under the […]

Flower Shop Thank You card

I love the Flower Shop stamp set and the coordinating Pansy Punch – they have been long time friends.  Again, these products are retiring at the end of the month, unless of course they sell out before then.  Today I’ve used them to create this card.  Pop back tomorrow to see a matching gift box. […]
