A shaker card for Mum!

Dear Crafters,

Today, I have the Mother’s Day card that I made for my mum, featuring the new Delightful Daisy Designer Series paper from the soon to be released Annual catalogue. I have also used the Large Letter framelits that you can get in a bundle saving you 10% but this is only until 31st May. They will be in the new Annual catalogue, but you cannot get it as a bundle, so get yours today by clicking here, you won’t be disappointed!

Anyway, are you ready to see my shaker card?!!!

I am absolutely in love with the new Delightful Daisy Designer Series Paper which will be available to order on 1 June 2017.

The sequins on the inside are the old 2013-2015 In Colour sequin pack, but they actually coordinate quite well with the colours in this DSP!

The large letter framelits were used to create the negative image for the front of the card, creating the shaker section…. but I also used the positive images for the inside of the card! No waste in this house!!!! lol

The sentiment, Happy Mother’s Day is from the Crazy About You stamp set and the flowers stamped on the MUM dies cuts is from brand new Colourful Seasons stamp set.

Art With Heart Team Blog Hop: Annual Catalogue Sneak Peeks

art-with-heart-team-blog-hop-logo-currentDear Crafters,

Tonight I am participating in a blog hop along with the super talented ladies in the Art With Heart Team. We thought it  would be fun to share some fabulous ideas to inspire you from our brand new 2017-2018 annual catalogue, which is available 1st June.

Be sure to request your copy of the catalogue today!

Blog Hops are full circles, so you can start hopping here and then at the end of each post is a link to the next one. There is also a list of participants at the end in case of any broken links.

Now let’s get started!

For my projects, I have used the Colorful Seasons suite, Colorful Seasons stamp set and Seasonal Layers thinlits dies (page 147 of new annual catalogue). I love how this bundle has so many items to be able to create a project for any season. There are 24 stamps in this stamp set; sentiments, flowers, leaves, branches, snowflakes and more!

Autumn – I have used Daffodil Delight, Pumpkin Pie, Tangerine Tango and Chocolate Chip. The material of the sun chair was stamped using the kissing technique with the wavy stamp from the set, Work of Art! I stamped the sentiment in Daffodil Delight, but it needed something, so I also stamped in Pumpkin Pie, but slightly offsetting it for a shadow effect.

Spring – I have used Powder Pink, Sweet Sugarplum, Chocolate Chip and Whisper White. The blossoms were stamped with Powder Pink and Sweet Sugarplum inks and die cut. The second one is a stamped off version of Sweet Sugarplum! I just love this colour combination and I could certainly see myself sitting on this chair enjoying a drink under the cherry blossoms 🙂

Winter – I have used Dapper Denim, Soft Sky and Whisper White with some Silver Glimmer of course! The snowflakes are stamped in Dapper Denim and stamped off a 2nd and 3rd time to get the gradient in the colour. I have also used some of the new Glitter Enamel Dots; how stunning are they?!!!!

Foxy, Peekaboo Peach

Dear Crafters,

Today I have challenged myself to make a card using the new In Color, Peekaboo Peach. Now I have to tell you, it was my least favourite of the 2016-2018 in colors, but after completing this card, I think differently of it, lol. It just works so well for the colour of the fox!

I am so happy that this stamp set is carrying over into the new annual catalogue 🙂

Faux Embossing with Dies

Dear Crafters,

I just love this technique of using dies to embossing without cutting!

The flamingo is stamped with Memento Black, Flirty Flamingo and Powder Pink inks.  The sentiment was stamped and cut out using the new Pretty Label punch. Then we cut 2 more of the punch pieces in Flirty Flamingo card and off set them behind the white one to create the layered effect.
