Last weekend I had my Catalogue Showcase. Lots of fun, creating and pouring over the new catalogue and new colours. I have been wanting to share the projects we made all week but I wanted to finish with the Delightfully Detailed projects first. SO, today I can share them.
We looked at the new catalogue and colours. I shared an overview in this post -> HERE.
To try the new colours everyone got to make a bookmark using the Waterfront set.
On the top they could use the Scallop Tag Topper Punch or the new Detailed Trio Punch. We used some of the new Black Cord to tie it off.
For the card we used the fantastic new Stitched Labels Framelits. I have mentioned these previously. These are a must have I think. We used the Love What You Do stamp set and some of the gorgeous Share What You Love Designer Series Paper. A little addition with the Share What You Love Artisan Pearls finished the card off. The sentiment for this is from Happy Birthday Gorgeous. I think everyone was in love by the end of the session. 🙂
I had mentioned the Stitched Labels Framelits back in this post -> HERE. I didn’t share this chart I had made at the time to show how each of the Framelits cut. You might like to see it.
These are the Framelits
Hope your weekend is going well. It is blowing a gale here so hopefully I won’t get blown away. 😉
Visit again soon,
Last month we had the Stampin’ Up! Onstage event. I am sure you have read lots about that already. I realised I hadn’t show you the cards we made. They are with products from the upcoming catalogue. Lots of gorgeous stuff! So I have this card for you today. And this is using the lovely paper and stamps from the Share What You Love suite that is now available this month.
The gorgeous Share What You Love Designer Series Paper (that has a beautiful shine to it), the lovely Velvet Rich Razzleberry ribbon, the Pearlized Doilies that have a nice soft shine to them and of course the Love What You Do stamp set. Notice the little pearls. They are the Artisan Pearls and are really lovely too. They come in a mixed pack with Rich Razzleberry, Grapefruit Grove and Tranquil Tide colours.
I will bring you some of the other cards next post.
Today I am joining in the Stampin’ Dreams Blog Hop. It is all about the new Annual Catalogue Sneak Peek so you are in for a treat. I am sure there are some lovely creations everyone will share today. You might be starting here or you have just come from Elaine’s blog -> HERE.
Today I am focusing on the new Bundle Sitting Pretty.
I have created 2 cards with this Bundle. I really like the seat Dies in the Pretty Park Framelits set.
I have used the gorgeous Share What You Love Designer Series Paper. The card base is the new Incolor Grapefruit Grove. For both of them I used sentiments from the set Eastern Beauty stamp set. I kept the layout similar for both cards.
For the top card I cut the bench seat in Black Cardstock. For the little bird I stamped it in black and stamped the inside of the bird in Mint Macaron. You don’t even need to colour it with the markers or pencils. Just a tip though: I stamped the inside of the bird twice turning the stamp slightly each time to give a little more cover in the inking. It’s a little hard to know how to stamp it. Now don’t bother trying to cut this tiny bird with scissors. You can cut it with the matching die!
On the card below I have used the lovely Velvet Rich Razzleberry Ribbon. For this set I stamped the ornate seat in Rich Razzleberry ink on Rich Razzleberry card. This was then cut out with the matching die. I also cut a heart in Silver Glimmer Paper with the heart die.
I hope you like them.

Today we have a very special Blog Hop celebrating the lovely Kelly Kent’s Birthday. She wanted to get some stamping friends together and share our creations with you. How exciting! I have to say though it is a little overwhelming. What to create … It had to be a birthday card of course.
You would either be starting here on your hop or you have just come from Siobhan’s blog -> HERE. So come and join the Birthday Hop.
Today I am sharing with you a Fun Fold card, It’s a Pop Out Swing Card. I have made a few versions of this card (see one HERE), but this one is a teeny tiny version. So cute! It stand about 10cm (4″) high. I have used the gorgeous new set available early this month, the Love What You Do stamp set and the Share What You Love Designer Series Paper.
Don’t forget a matching envelope for this card too. Made easy with the Envelope Punch Board.
The beautiful paper and colours makes this a gorgeous project without too much to it. That Rich Razzleberry Velvet ribbon is just so soft and gorgeous too.
The Frame on the front of the card is made with the Layering Squares Framelits. The sentiment inside is from the Southern Serenade set. The leaf stem on the inside is cut from Mossy Meadow cardstock using the Flourish Thinlits.
You can continue on the Birthday Blog Hop now and pop back again later to get the instructions link. You will find the instructions for this card on Amanda’s blog -> HERE.

You might have seen this project in the past week. This was made for my Mother’s Day class this weekend. It was a bit hard to see the card so I thought I would show you a little closer view. Plus it is an opportunity to just take a minute to wish all the Mummies a Happy Mother’s Day. Whether you are a mummy to humans or to furry creatures or an “adopted” mummy to young ones. I wish you a wonderful day. Be sure to take some time to put your feet up, maybe indulge in a little creativity just for yourself. However you spend it, Have a great day. xx
Onto the card.
It’s quite a simple card but I think the paper is the star. This is the gorgeous Share What You Love Designer Series Paper. It is so shiny although you may not be able to see it. I love the colours. Ooh! Mint Macaron is back!!! The white card is stamped with some of the small images from the Love What You Do stamp set. The sentiment is from the You’re Inspiring set. You could easily substitute a Happy Birthday which is what I did in one of the cards I made in classes this weekend.
The sentiment piece and the Silver Foil backing is cut from the Layering Oval Framelits and I added some loops of Silver Thread. It makes such a nice “extra” to a card. The paper doily is from the current Lace Paper Doilies.
The Share What You Love is available as bundles as an early release now. I mentioned that a couple of posts back so just pop back one or 2 posts. All these will be available individually in the upcoming 2018 Catalogue on June 1st.
I will be off but thanks for stopping by. Have a great day xx
