    cards, Personal Ramblings


    I can finally share this card now. This was a very special wedding card to make for my son and his new wife who recently were married.

    It’s a simple card but that’s my style. 🙂 But the shine on it was beautiful. Sadly you can’t quite capture that in a photo.

    I used the Pearlescent Specialty Paper to diecut the flower using the Artistic Dies. Sadly this paper is not available now. It gives such a beautiful shimmer. I hope you can see that in the photo below.

    Cinnamon Cider was used for the card mat as that was a close match to the Bridesmaids dresses. The sentiment from Last a Lifetime (retired) was Heat Embossed with Copper Embossing Powder.

    For the inside I used a piece of the Pearlescent Specialty Paper to add some shine. I used the Saddle Brown Stazon to stamp the sentiment and flower as it was a shiny surface.

    How cool though! The flower from the Last A Lifetime stamp set matched so well with the diecut flower from the Artistic Dies.

    I have to share a photo of the happy couple right. 🙂 We haven’t got the professional photos yet. This is just one of my happy snaps. There was just so much happiness and smiles on the day.

    Below is Josh and Claire and my daughter Carlie who was one of the bridesmaids with her boyfriend James.

    Ok. Now I have indulged you I will be back with more inspiration soon.

    Have a great day,

    Playing with the Artistically Inked stamps and dies recently. I thought it would be fun to create a card with the 2021 Incolors and the “splotch” stamp. Well that’s what I am calling it anyway.

    Just a tip when you want to stamp this – Stamp the top one and the bottom one first. Just have them off the edge a little. Then you can fill the centre section with the other 3 colours. It is a little easier to evenly space them.

    I have made a few cards with this gorgeous bundle and I will share more with you soon.

    Happy Stamping,

    I think one of my new favourite bundles is the Flowers of Friendship. And to think I dismissed it several times going through the catalogue!

    It is such a sweet set and I love the versatility of the punch. For this card though I have just used the stamp and coloured it with the Stampin’ Blends.

    The paper strip is from the Pansy Petals Designer Series Paper. Add a little twine and a little pearl to finish. It’s just a sweet card.

    What more do you need really when you make a card? Some pretty paper and a sentiment.

    The paper from the Dandy Garden Designer Series Paper with lots of fluttering dragonflies makes for a very quick card. I added some strips of the striped paper behind it for added contrast. Just use strips too. Don’t use a whole piece of the paper behind it as it is wasted.

    I added some loops of the Midnight Muse Twine behind the sentiment with a small punched Bumblebee dragonfly.

    The Dandy Garden paper is retiring and leaving VERY SOON. It is reduced too. 🙂

    Wednesday’s WOW! #121. Sharing a tip for you on masking your sentiment area. This creates an “edge” for your surrounding stamping and creates a white space for your sentiment that helps it stand out without even raising it on a separate punch or diecut. It creates such a cool effect.

    We created this card in my Retiring Class last week. I love the Beautiful Friendship stamp set and I’m so sad it is leaving. This card is not my original idea. I saw it on Pinterest by Nancy Ferb.

    I have used the Mango Melody for the card base and Terracotta Tile for the card mat.

    You create the mask for your sentiment area by adding a Sticky Note on the white card. I have shown it below. You can place it anywhere you like. Then stamp around the Sticky Note. When you are done remove it and then you have a “block” area to add the sentiment.

    Sadly this stamp set is no longer available. 😦 They go quick when they are retiring.

    Don’t miss out on any other of the Retiring Items. Only 2 weeks left. Check it out -> HERE.

    Check out the Clearance Rack too for some huge discounted items. See it -> HERE.

    With your orders I’m sending out some of my Hand-made cards. I have lots to give away. That’s in addition to the other little gifts I send out.

    Happy Stamping,
