When the Occasions Catalogue was launched I shared many a project using Sheltering Tree Photopolymer Stamp Set. I haven’t used it for a while however, used it in a bit of a different way for this card. The colours are Rose Red and Blushing Bride. I’ve used just the tree canopy and stamped around the edge of the Whisper White. You get a great effect by inking up in Rose Red, stamping and then stamping off a couple of times…. Read more »

I’ve decided to try another floral stamp set with a punch – Petal Potpourri which combines with the Flower Medallion Punch. I’ve used the punch on the front of the card.

Again the sentiment from Mum’s Love Photopolymer Stamp Set but the flower is from Petal Potpourri… Read more »

Yesterday I shared the Vivid Vases stamp set with some sewing and today I’ve decided to take a totally different direction and use some dry embossed vellum. I used an Aqua Painter again to colour the image and added tiny pearl to the foliage of the flower. The bow is made from the Painted Blooms Cotton Twine. I do like it’s thickness and the way it seems to tie lovely bows. I’ve used an image from Mum’s Love Photopolymer Stamp… Read more »

Would you like a bag that turned into a box? Well this is it. The Stampin’ Up! Mini Treat Bag Thinlit Die created yesterday’s bag and today’s box. I do have a couple more shares later in the week using this same Thinlit Die. This is an idea from Create With Connie and Mary where you can get a free tutorial. The thinlit is easy to turn into a box and over the next couple of days I’ll show you… Read more »

Anyway I filled this little basket with… Read more »

It is Jenny Hayward’s turn this week to bring you the 12 Weeks of Christmas project.  We’re excited to share this project with you.  Today Jenny shares some Christmas Ornaments that you can make to hang on your Christmas Tree this year, or to give as a gift to someone special. These were really hard to take photos of and I apologise for the reflection.  I would have spent an hour and a half taking photos inside and out trying to get the… Read more »

Here’s my first card. I have another view for you as well, so you can see I stamped the inside of the card too. I also stamped the envelope. Receiving a hand stamped envelope, just adds that little bit of excitement to happy mail, I think and besides you… Read more »

When we make projects we like to be quite thrifty with the products we use so we ultimately save money to spend on more new products, right? Well today a fellow demonstrator posted a message on a forum about placement of the Curvy Keepsake Box Die Thinlit on an A4 sheet of card. I’ve always cut my card in half and layered them together and cut 2 at once and this makes 1 complete box. Today I worked out you… Read more »
