Simple and Super Card Inspiration…

I wanted to share with you today some simple and super card inspiration. Whenever I am stuck for ideas, there are many places to look for an idea, but the Stampin’ Up! catalogue is one of the first places I go to. It is so beautiful to look through, and so full of projects to try, you really should take a look.

Here is the new 2021 Jan-Jun Mini Catalogue, coming soon, not long to wait now! If you are super excited, you could always join my Virtual Catalogue Launch Party Facebook Group where I will be sharing lots of fun over the coming weeks!


Jan - Jun 2021 Mini Catalogue - easy card inspiration right here

I wanted to work with a gorgeous stamp set called ART GALLERY. It has some stunning two step stamping flower images and lovely co-ordinating dies. Highland Heather and Gorgeous Grape are the two colours (my favourite) I used to stamp the flowers, and Pear Pizazz for the leaves. I actually stamped the image in both colours and then cut the flowers of the purple image off and stuck them onto the green image.

I must admit I got a bit ‘snip happy’ and cut some of the leaves off too, so that I could rearrange them a little for effect! Can you see how I made the background here? I used our new blending brushes, also coming out in January, with the basic pattern masks, to create the dotty effect. Isn’t it great? Then there is a sneaky piece of DSP too, to create some interest.

Stampin’ Blends Course

Bookings are now open for my next Stampin’ Blends Course, starting on Sunday 5th February 2023, with four zoom classes running over several months (to give you plenty of time to practice in between). All of the classes are recorded into a Private Facebook Group too, so you can watch and rewatch as many times as you like. The course also includes a 17 page written course guide, with accompanying worksheets.

There are two options for this course, a product based option (available UK only) and an online only option (available WORLDWIDE). The online only version is £70 and the product based version is £180 – for which you get access to the whole course, the course guide, £180 worth of product (4 stamp sets and 21 Stampin’ Blends) Sale-A-Bration goodies and free postage too.

Because you also get your choice of 4 level one Sale-A-Bration items, this option is a real bargain if you love Stampin’ Up! products, and as always you are free to swap out for other product of your choice.
