Nothing Fancy

January 31, 2023

Today I am sharing another card I made using the Fancy Flora Collection from the current Mini Catalogue. For this card I cut a piece of the Fancy Flora 6″ x 6″ Designer Series Paper and attached it to a panel of Soft Succulent Fine Shimmer 12″ x 12″ Paper. The whole panel is attached to scored and folded Thick Basic White card. I cut Basic White card using the largest circle from the Layering Circle Dies. I cut Soft Succulent card using the largest scalloped circle from the Layering Circle Dies. I stamped a greeting from the Something Fancy stamp set onto the Basic White circle using Soft Succulent ink.

I attached the stamped circle to the scalloped circle and then the card front. I stamped one of the solid flowers from the Two-Tone Flora stamp set onto Basic White card twice using Daffodil Delight ink. I stamped the detailed flower image from the Two-Tone Flora stamp set over the top of the solid images using Calypso Coral ink. I also stamped the leaf image from the Two-Tone Flora stamp set onto Basic White card using Soft Succulent ink.

The flowers and leaf were cut out using the co-ordinating Two-Tone Flora Dies. I attached one flower and the leaf image flat onto the stamped circle. I attached the second flower using dimensionals. To finish off the card front I added three of the Gold Iridescent Pastel Gems around the greeting. To decorate the inside of the card, I stamped another greeting from the Something Fancy stamp set onto Basic White card using Soft Succulent ink. I attached a strip of Soft Succulent Fine Shimmer Paper behind one long edge of a strip of Fancy Flora Designer Series Paper. The Designer Series Paper panel is attached across the bottom of the stamped Basic White card.

I really am loving this very beautiful Fancy Flora Collection and I hope you are too.

Bye for now,

Crows Nest National Park

January 28, 2023

While staying at Crows Nest, Ron & I decided to do the walk to the Koonin Lookout at the National Park. We left early but being December it got hot quickly and we were very glad to finish our walk, although the scenery and lookout were spectacular. I cut a piece of Coastal Cabana card using the decorative edge from the Scalloped Contours Dies before embossing the card using the Timber 3D Embossing Folder.

I attached the embossed card behind the right hand edge of a piece of Enjoy The Journey 12″ x 12″ Designer Series Paper. The whole panel is attached to the left hand side of a Basic White 12″ x 12″ page. I cut Basic Black card three times using the tree from the Majestic Mountain Dies. I attached the die cut trees to the left hand side of the page before attaching my photos directly to the page.

I die cut Basic Black card using the hiker image from the Greatest Journey Dies and attached it to the lower right hand corner of the embossed Coastal Cabana card. I printed the title onto Basic White card and fussy cut the words before attaching them to the upper right hand corner of the page. The journaling is printed onto Basic White card, cut into strips and the edges dipped into Memento Tuxedo Black ink before being attached to the page. Another simple page but again it inspires lots of memories of this walk.

Thinking of You

January 26, 2023

This week in my Facebook Live I shared some cards I created using the Dainty Flowers 12″ x 12″ Designer Series Paper which you can earn for FREE during Sale-A-Bration with a qualifying order. This paper does co-ordinate with Dainty Delight Bundle which you can find on page 55 of the current Mini Catalogue. I do not have the Dainty Delight Bundle but this paper is so gorgeous it can be used as the focal point for your cards. For my card today, I cut a floral arrangement from the Dainty Flowers Designer Series Paper into a narrow panel.

I attached the panel to another piece of Dainty Delight Designer Series Paper which has a lovely washed background look. The whole panel is attached to scored and folded Mossy meadow card. I stamped the greeting from the Quiet Meadow stamp set onto Basic White card using Mossy Meadow ink.

I cut out the greeting using one of the banner dies from the Cracker & Treat Box Dies. The greeting is attached to the card front using dimensionals. To decorate the inside of the card, I cut a small floral bouquet from the Dainty Flowers Designer Series Paper and attached it to the lower left hand corner of Basic White card. I attached a narrow strip of the same paper I used as the mat for the card front. I loved how this turned out and thought I would create another card using the same components. This time however, I fussy cut the floral arrangement and attached it to Basic White card. The rest of the card is created in the same manner as the first one.

I think they are very pretty, but I think the fussy cut one is a little prettier. What about you? Which one do you like the best.

Wishing you Everything

January 24, 2023

wonderful. Today’s card uses the In The Country stamp set, which is another stamp set you can earn for free during Sale-a-bration (4th January to 28th February 2023). I embossed Basic White card using the Timeworn Type 3D Embossing Folder and attached it to scored and folded Bermuda Bay card. I stamped the image from the In The Country stamp set onto Basic White card using Memento Tuxedo Black ink.

I coloured the image using Grey Granite, Light Flirty Flamingo, Dark Poppy Parade, Light Old Olive and Dark Bermuda Bay Stampin’ Blends. I attached the stamped Basic White panel to Bermuda Bay card and then the card front. I stamped the greeting from the Charming Sentiments stamp set onto Basic White card using Bermuda Bay ink.

I used the co-ordinating Sentiment Silhouette Die to cut out the greeting before attaching it to the card front. To decorate the inside of the card, I stamped a greeting from the Celebrating You stamp set onto Basic White card using Bermuda Bay ink. I embossed a narrow strip of Basic White card using the Timeworn Type 3D Embossing Folder and attached a narrow strip of Bermuda Bay card behind one long edge. The embossed panel is attached to the bottom of the stamped Basic White card.

This is a very pretty stamp set and I am sure it will be very popular with those that love colouring.

The Park

January 21, 2023

Today’s page shows off some photos of the park in Crows Nest and the beautiful Rememberance walk to the Cenotaph. I attached a piece of Design a Daydream 12″ x 12″ Designer Series Paper to a Basic White 12″ x 12″ page. I embossed a piece of Night of Navy card using the Painted Texture 3D Embossing Folder and attached it across the bottom of the Designer Series Paper. I added my photos to Night of Navy card before attaching them to the page. I cut the title from Night of Navy card using the retired Playful Alphabet Dies.

I cut the solid flower from Basic White card using the Poppy Moments Dies and coloured it using the Dark Real Red Stampin’ Blend. I die cut the detailed flower from Real Red card using the Poppy Moments Die and attached the flowers together. I cut the flower centre from Basic Black and the leaves from Old Olive card using the Poppy Moments Die. The journaling is printed onto Basic White card and cut into strips before attaching to the page. Simple as usual but it makes me smile when I remember this happy day.

Bendy Birthday

January 19, 2023

This week on my Facebook Live, I shared the Around the Bend Bundle. This is a great bundle but I probably love the dies the most. For this card, I used Washi Tape to line up the two dies from the Around the Bend Dies on a piece of Basic White card so that I created a narrow scalloped border as well as the decorative panel. The narrow scalloped border let me attach it to the back of the decorative panel without obscuring the “holes” in the panel. I attached the die cut panel to the left hand side of a piece of Design A Daydream 12″ x 12″ Designer Series Paper and then scored and folded Pool Party card. I cut Basic White card using the largest circle from the Layering Circle Dies.

I stamped the “sand” stamp from the Oceanfront stamp set across the bottom of the Basic White circle using Sahara Sand ink. I stamped the “sea” stamp from the Oceanfront stamp set above the stamped sand using Pool Party ink. I stamped the same stamp to fill the top of the circle but this time I stamped the image onto scrap paper first. I stamped the small bird image from the Seaside Bay stamp set across the “sand” using Early Espresso ink.

I cut a scalloped circle from Pool Party card using the Layering Circle Dies and attached the stamped Basic White circle. The image panel is attached to the card front using dimensionals. I stamped “happy birthday” from the Go To Greetings stamp set onto Basic White card using Early Espresso ink. I cut a “v” in one end of the greeting banner “before attaching it across the image panel. To decorate the inside of the card, I stamped the “sand” image onto the lower left hand corner of Basic White card using Sahara Sand ink. I cleaned the stamp and re-inked using Pool Party to add a little bit of “sea” before stamping the bird image from the Seaside Bay stamp set using Early Espresso ink

I love how this card turned out, don’t you. I am really looking forward to using these Around the Bend Dies on lots of creations.

Bye for now,

Crows Nest

January 14, 2023

Before Christmas Ron and I decided to take a short break and visited a little town about two hours from home. We had a lovely time. For my page I attached a piece of the Enjoy The Journey 12″ x 12″ Designer Series Paper across the bottom half of a Basic White 12″ x 12″ page. I did cut a border from Basic Black card using one of the Blossoming Happiness Dies which I attached to the bottom edge of the paper first. I attached my photos onto the page without adding any mats. I cut two of the decorative panels from Basic Black card using the All That Dies to attach to the page. I cut the title from Basic Black card using the new Alphabet A La Mode Dies which you can find in the new Mini Catalogue.

I added Adhesive Sheet to the back of the Basic Black card first to make it easier to attach the title. I printed my journaling onto Basic White card and cut it out using one of the Something Fancy Dies and attached it to the lower right hand corner of the page. Lastly I cut Basic Black card using the Greatest Journey Dies and attached the tree image to the bottom of the page. I love how pretty this page looks and the Designer Series Paper is just simply gorgeous. You can find the Enjoy The Journey Collection on page 58 of the new Mini Catalogue.
