cards, Catalogues


I have another card for you today with the Hello Ladybug stamps and the Ladybug Builder punch.

I will say I meant to position the white card up a little higher but I stuck it down and realised – and it was stuck!!

I used the Pansy Petals Designer Series Paper too. It was a sweet pattern for these Ladybugs stamped in Bumblebee and Calypso Coral.

The diecut edge under the white is from the Nature’s Thoughts Dies. The sparkly paper is the Supple Shimmer Paper.

You can see the Hello Ladybug stamps and dies (Price is $56.50 AUD) in my store now -> HERE.

These Ladybugs are going to fly off now.

Have a great week,

The Pansy Petals Designer Series Paper has been very popular I think. It is so pretty. Flowers on one side and Gingham and other patterns on the other. What’s not to love!

Of course this paper works lovely with the Pansy Patch Stamp Set and Pansy Dies but why not use it on it’s own.

For this card I used the “paper tole” on the pansies. From the pansy print I cut several out and snipped off sections. I think the Pansy Dies will cut these too which is cool and if you don’t like cutting.

After cutting them all layer them together and raise up the smaller parts with Dimensionals to give dimension.

I used some of the Fresh Freesia Gingham print in the Pansy Petals DSP pack for the card. The sentiment is from the Tasteful Touches stamp set.

Why not try it yourself.

If you need this paper this is one of the packs at 15% off this month which is a bonus!

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.

For today’s video I wanted to create some Recessed Panel cards to share with you. In the video I show you how to make one version but I have some other variations to share too. Have you tried this technique? It’s a great way to showcase some beautiful papers.

Check the video. I have the other cards to share with you too.

This is the card created in the video. I think when I looked at it after I should have cut the top curve higher to showcase more of the paper. You just don’t think of that in the middle of filming. ūüôā

This one is the same version using a different print of the Pansy Petals paper. I used the Basic Borders Dies to create the curves in both of them.

Instead of curves you could make straight cuts in the card. For a difference though cut the card vertically. This one uses the Hand-Penned paper.

What about adding the pretty papers on top of the recess. This is a great way of showing that beautiful paper. This one uses the Art Gallery Designer Series Paper. For this I cut 2 angle cuts in the bottom right corner of the paper and added strips of the Poppy Parade card behind to highlight it.

I hope you get to create these soon. Choose whatever way you like to.
