Multicolour Stamping with Markers…

This Multicolour Stamping with Markers technique is an oldie but a goodie, it is such a nice way of taking a single stamp and stamping it in a whole variety of colours. I have used the Shaded Summer stamp set for this card, I just love the flowery images that are in the set, as well as all of those gorgeous sentiments! I actually made this card for the Global Design Project #292, I love taking part in challenges because it can really inspire the creative person inside. This week’s challenge was to CASE the designer, Susan Wong. What a […]

A very girly birthday card…

I made this girly birthday card for my niece’s birthday, I think it will be just perfect for her even though she isn’t a particularly girly girl. I was working on a project for my return to in person classes and this paper was out on my desk, just calling to be used. It is absolutely stunning, and from the new Expressions in Ink Designer Series Papers. These papers are absolutely gorgeous, and mimic an alcohol effect style, without the mess or the need to buy and learn how to use alcohol inks. And they have the most beautiful gold […]

Theme Challenge by the Global Design Project – Animal…

Sometimes challenges can really help to inspire us, and because I haven’t posted in one for a while I wanted to take part in this theme challenge by the Global Design Project #279. The theme for this challenge is Animals, and co-incidentally I had the gorgeous Springtime Joy set on my desk from a recent project! I absolutely love the adorable little creatures in this set, all the way from the lamb to the smallest butterfly. Each one really has their own character and together they make the cutest of scenes. I stamped my images in Basic Grey, to give […]

Sketch challenge using the Simply Succulents Bundle…

I had so much fun taking part in the Global Design Project challenge last week that I have decided to take part again, this time it is my take on a sketch challenge using the Simply Succulents Bundle. The challenges really are great for when you are stuck for inspiration, so I hope you enjoy my entry for #GDP274, with its stunning blended background! There are lots of ways to interpret this sketch challenge, as you can see by the examples over at http://www.global-design-project.com/, but I have chosen to work around the layout of the card and also to incorporate […]

Colour Challenge with Pretty Perennials…

I have been in a bit of a ‘blog’ slump after Christmas, so what better way to re-energise than to take part in a colour challenge with Pretty Perennials stamps and dies, this time set by the Global Design Project #GDP273, with the stunning combination of Soft Sea Foam, Petal Pink and Night of Navy! Wow, what a great mix, and colours I would never think of to put together, but they really do work. I wanted to use the Pretty Perennials stamp set from the just released Jan – Jun Mini Catalogue, with it’s beautiful full bodied stamps and […]

Joy to the World Paper Pumpkin kit…

As is so often the case I am a little late to the party here, but I can safely say that I am LOVING working with the Joy to the World Paper Pumpkin kit. If you don’t already have this in your Christmas loving hands I seriously recommend that you get it while stocks still last – I don’t think it will be long before this sells out. I happened to have the kit on my desk when I stumbled across this weeks Global Design Project challenge, #GDP268. The link to the page is at the bottom of this post, […]

Hello and welcome stampers, I want to share a card with you today using some new products from the Stampin’ Up!

The idea is that you take the sketch, theme, colour combination etc that is given, […]
