Stamping Sunday Blog Hop - Preview 2020

Hello, and welcome to my blog.
The Stamping Sunday Design Team Blog Hop is featuring the 2020 Annual Catalogue Preview, and there are some incredible NEW products to show you.
The 2020 Annual Catalogue will be available 3rd June, 2020!


I have featured the NEW In Colours; 
'Cinnamon Cider', 'Just Jade', 'Bumble Bee, 'Magenta Madness' & 'Misty Moonlight', 
along with the NEW 'Lovely Labels' stamp set & coordinating 'Lovely Labels Pick A Punch'.

 Beginner Crafter card:
I started out making In Color Bookmarks to go with the NEW Annual Catalogue to give to my customers, and it struck me to make cards using the NEW In Colors.
Cardstock strips are 1.5cm x 10.5cm, and adhered onto a 'Whisper White' card base. 
I added a sentiment stamped in 'Jet Black Staz-On' ink.

Casual Crafter card:
I adhered the In Color strips to a 'Whisper White' layer, adding some 
'Magenta Madness Ribbon', and a sentiment.

I stamped the sentiment, then stamped the flower image.
The flower image has been stamped off using 'Smoky Slate' ink.
Punching the ends of the 2.5cm or 1" strip into a label using the 
'Lovely Labels Pick A Punch'.

Avid Crafter card:
I stamped 5 different images onto the In Color strips using 'Versamark' ink.
I placed the strips of cardstock into the 'Subtle 3D Embossing Folder' and ran it through my embossing machine.
Adhering the strips onto a 'Whipser White' layer, and adhering to a 'Basic Black' layer.

 My favourite ribbon is the '1/4" Bumble Bee Gingham Ribbon'!
I have also added some '2020-2022 In Color Enamel Dots', in 'Bumble Bee', to the sentiment

Thankyou for visiting my blog, and I hope you will get some inspiration from the amazing Design Team and their 'Preview' creations?

Just Add Ink - Inspiration Challenge #506

Hello, and welcome to my blog.
The 'Just Add Ink Design Team' have an amazing 'Inspiration' Challenge, and we have some incredible creations for you to see.
We would love for you to play along with this Challenge, and you can add your project to our blog gallery here.


I was inspired by the colours and have used the; 'Crushed Curry', 'Garden Green', 'Rich Razzleberry' & 'Basic Grey' with some 'Gold Foil' as my starting point.

'Thinking of you Sweet Friend'
Hands up who are sad the beautiful 'Honey Bee Bundle' is retiring?
I'm making the most of this delightful Bundle!
A NEW punch has helped me make the sentiment; 'Lovely Labels Pick a Punch', available June 3rd, 2020.

The bee-hive has been embossed using 'Clear Stampin' Emboss Powder', creating the shine of the ceramic bowls in the Inspiration photo.
The beautiful 'Gold Foil' bee is the centrepiece of the card front.

The 'Basic Gray' background has been embossed using the 'Bricks & Mortar 3D Embossing Folder'. Something like the tiled kitchen bench.
What has inspired you?

Thankyou for paying me a visit, and we are looking forward to seeing your project in our gallery.
See you next time. D x

Colour INKspiration #CI77


Hello, and welcome to another Colour INKspiration Colour Challenge.
The Crew have some incredible creations to inspire you, and we want you to join in the fun. Add your project to our fb page gallery here.


Below is the Inspiration photo for our Colour Challenge.

'Old Olive', 'Soft Sea Foam', 'Garden Green', 'Very Vanilla' & 'Seaside Spray'.
You can also add 'Basic Black', 'Crumb Cake', 'Whisper White' & 'Metallics'.

So much green, and a little bit of blue in between!
I have watercoloured ink stripes from 'Garden Green', 'Old Olive', 'Soft Sea Foam' & 'Seaside Spray' onto 'Very Vanilla' cardstock card front, using an 'Aqua Painter'.
*TIP: Do not fill the 'Aqua Painter' with water, and do not wet the cardstock.
I added the ink to my acrylic blocks. Dipped the 'Aqua Painter into water, then into the ink. I swiftly painted the line onto the cardstock. Rinse the colour, and go into the next colour, and continue.

Sneak peek products!
I have used some NEW products on my creation, and I am in love with the NEW 
'Forever Greenery Suite'. (Available June 3rd, 2020)
The sentiment is from the 'Forever Fern' stamp set, and I have die cut the fine fern leaves in 'Vellum' from the coordinating 'Forever Flourishing Dies'.
And a little bit of 'Forever Greenery Trim Combo' underneath the sentiment.

'You Can Do This'
I stamped the leaf image using 'Garden Green'; stamped off prior to stamping onto the 'Very Vanilla cardstock. Adding stamped off 'Soft Sea Foam' dots over the sentiment element.
Lastly adding the pearls, which I coloured using 'Soft Sea Foam Dark Stampin' Blends Marker'.

Thankyou for visiting my blog, and I hope to have inspired you to join in our Challenge? Add your project to our gallery here, and we can't wait to see what you come up with.
See you next time. D x
