Love, So Very Grateful (JAI#207 )

Hello Crafters,

At Just Add Ink this week, it’s a sketch challenge!

The minute I saw this challenge I knew what I was going to do, it was just the colours that I wasn’t sure about. Because I wanted to use the ‘love’ die from the expressions thinlits, I thought I should do something with pinks!

So Very Grateful

Some of the items used in this card are from the Sale-a-bration & Occasions Catalogues:

So Very Grateful

To create the banner edges, I placed the pink pirouette card stock into the side of the Decorative Label punch. Isn’t it a cute result?!!!

I didn’t have any ribbon in coordinating colours, so I used the Whisper White Taffeta Ribbon and coloured it by placing it onto the Pink Pirouette Stampin’ Ink pad and let the colour soak in. I used my heat tool to dry it so the ink didn’t run onto the So Saffron tag.

I think the pearls just finish this card off perfectly.

Be sure to have a go at some Challenges, they are great fun to play along and see what others design, so head over to Just Add Ink for more inspiration from the Design Team!

Christmas, Thinlits Dies

I’m back!

Well hello lovely stampers,

We are back from our wonderful holiday to Phuket, Thailand. I hope you enjoyed the few photos we posted on facebook while we were away. You wouldn’t believe that we took over 900 photos, so there will be lots of Scrapbooking in the near future!

It’s great to be home and able to stamp again!

The new Expressions Thinlits Dies (from the Holiday Catalogue) got a work out this morning and they are wonderful. I was a little worried about easy they were going to release from the die, but they are fantastic. They sure will become a feature on many cards.

I started with this Christmas card using the thinlits and the frosted finishes embellishment with the Winter Frost DSP.


This card also uses the love thinlits with the Beautifully Baroque Bundle (stamp and coordinating embossing folder). You can purchase these 2 items at 15% off!


Christmas Card using the dies from the Keepsake Ornament Set and new silver ribbon from the Holiday Catalogue.


I love this Venetian Romance DSP pack of papers. I have also used the expressions thinlits using multipurpose adhesive sheets and silver glitter over the heart from the Hearts a Flutter Stamp and Die Set.


These are just a taste of what I have been working on and will have plenty more to share with you in the coming weeks.

To purchase any of these items, be sure to visit my online store!

Happy stamping,
