Stamping Sunday Blog Hop - Paper Party

| on

Hi there, and welcome to my blog.
It's the Stamping Sunday Blog Hop and the Design Team have been creating for a 'Paper Party' theme.

I have chosen the delightful and pretty 'Hand Penned Designer Series Paper'. As a double sided paper, this DSP is my favourite, however, you can use any of the gorgeous Designer Series Paper to make what I have done for you...

First up, a favourite 6" x 12" gift bag and it's the lovliest little parcel.
Landscape: Score 3-1/4"/5-3/8"/8-5/8"/10-1/2".
Portrait: Score 1" at the top (to fold over) & 1-1/4" at the bottom (to wrap as a gift and adhere with 'Tear & Tape Adhesive').
Burnish the score lines and adhere with 'Tear & Tape Adhesive'.

I stamped the floral image with 'Blushing Bride' ink, and added the sentiment using 'Tuxedo Black Memento Ink'.

An envelope made from the Designer Series Paper.
All made with a 6" x 6" piece of Designer Series Paper, a piece of 'Basic White' cardstock for the notecard and some ribbon & twine coloured with 'Highland Heather Stampin' Blends Markers'.

I added a stamped off floral image using 'Highland Heather' ink to the bottom of the notecard.
Add a sentiment, or not.

Some sweet 'Layering Circle Dies' tags - stamp on them, or not!
Add some 'Blushing Bride Twine' for a gorgeous little tie.

Some 'Tailor Made Tags Dies' with the pattern side of the Designer Series Paper!
I have added the flower reinforcements from the 'In The Tropics Dies', colour coordinated, and I think some 'Linen Thread' would be a perfect tie on a package.

'Nanny's Choc Chip Cookies' need their own specially made jar, for whenever Nanny comes to visit!
Nanny has hand written the tag, and it's a perfect little jar for when Nanny bakes for her Grandsons.

A touch of 'Pale Papaya Ribbon' over the beautiful Designer Series Paper strip around the glass jar.

Thankyou for visiting my blog.

| on

 Hey there! It's time for an Inspire.Create.Stamping Challenge.

We are 'CASEing the Designer', our Verity, and a previous creation she has made. Get your creating feels on, and get on board to add your project to our gallery here.

*CASE = Copy And Share Everything!

I have gone a bit Vintage, with some Shabby Chic, for my interpretation of Verity's CASE the Designer Challenge.

Straight up, I have flipped the image from Portrait to Landscape.
Get your 'Hand Penned Petals' stamp set, a 'Memento Ink Pad' & 'Stampin' Blends' ready for some colouring fun.
I love colouring with 'Stampin' Blends Markers' onto 'Sahara Sand' cardstock.

Adding a touch of 'Tasteful Textile 3D Embossing Folder' after the stamping and colouring.
Looks like some vintage fabric, don't you think?

The 'Pale Papya Ribbon' & 'Very Vanilla Scalloped Lace Trim' make a beautiful duo, with the 'Happy Birthday' tag attached with 'Linen Thread'.

Just Add Ink - Just Choose Two Challenge #559

| on

It's a Just Add Ink 'Just Choose Two' Challenge,p and the Design Team have created some beautiful projects to inspire you. 

Add your 'Just Choose Two' projects here.


I have chosen 'Stitching' & 'Stripes'.

What will you choose?


I coloured the cute Kangaroo and flower using 'Stampin' Blends Markers'.

My next element was the 'Sahara Sand' die cut swirl - die cutting the circle from the middle to expose the 'Mint Macaron' stripes.

I hand stitched some white cotton thread within the stitched circle and finished the ends tying a tiny bow.

Embossing the 'Stitched Rectangle' background with the lovely 'Ornate Floral 3D Embossing Folder'.

I have coloured with 'Stampin' Blends' & fussy cut the tiny flowers & leaves.

Scattering a few 'Mint Macaron Genial Gems' to finish my creation. 

Thankyou for visiting my blog, and I can't wait to see your project in our gallery.

See you next Challenge. D x

Colour INKspiration #101

| on

Hello, and welcome to my blog.

The Colour INKspiration Crew have a Colour Challenge, and we want you to join in the fun.

Create a project using our Challenge colours, and add it to our Colour INKspiration Challenges FB page here.

Pale Papaya, Fresh Freesia, Highland Heather, Balmy Blue & Evening Evergreen.
You can also use Basic Black, Basic White, Crumb Cake, Very Vanilla & Metallics.

The 'Pale Papaya' Gingham pattern from the 'Pansy Petals Designer Series Paper' was my starting point for my creation.
I have stamped the floral images using the 'Evening Evergreen' ink pad - stamped off 3 times, before stamping onto the Designer Series Paper.

I have coloured the die cut butterfly, from the 'Brilliant Wings Dies' using a 'Sponge Dauber' and Balmy Blue, Highland Heather & Fresh Freesia inks.
Doesn't it look beautiful?

And some lovely additions with some 'Pale Papaya Genial Gems' scattered onto the embossed rectangle element, and some White Twine.

How's about this sweet gift tag too?
The 'Tailor Made Tags Dies' are a favourite of mine, and I added a 'Pale Papaya In the Tropics Dies' flower as a reinforcement.

Thankyou for paying me a visit, and I hope to have inspired you to make something amazing for our Colour INKspiration Challenge #101.
See you next time. D x
