Truly Tailored and Diagonal Stripe Masculine Card #CI25

Today I am playing with the Colour Inspiration Challenge #CI25 with the colours Night of Navy, Lemon Lime Twist and Whisper White with Truly Tailored and Diagonal Stripe stamp sets from Stampin' Up!. I also added the Stitched Shapes Framelits, Tailored Tag Punch and True Gentleman Button with Linen Tread.



I stamped the main sentiment on Vellum using the Stamparatus so it didn't slip. I also used the Hill stamp with Night of Navy ink onto the same colour paper to add a pattered layer.

Clear Mount Backgrounds can sometimes be hard to stamp evenly. I have seen this technique used before so here it is in pictures with the Stamparatus.


Adhere stamp to the plate towards the outer edge and ink up the stamp 


Add piece of card stock over your inked stamp


Close your Stamparatus base to plate (upside down)


Flip your Stamparatus right way up keeping it closed and add pressure to transfer ink to your paper.


Open and your card stock will perfectly stamped and positioned without using extra paper or the magnet.




The Stamparatus will available to purchase in the upcoming Annual catalogue

Ready to Pop with Popcorn Thinlits Box

I shared with you a few weeks ago the invitations for my son's Year 6 Farewell, well here are the place settings that were used at the event using Ready to Pop stamp set and Popcorn Box Thinlits from Stampin Up!


The Stampin Up! Colours used are Pacific Point, Tangerine Tango, Real Red, Crushed Curry and Emerald Envy.

The cut Popcorn Thinlits boxes were embossed with the Polka Dot Basics Embossing Folder all in the Big Shot.

The name labels were stamped with the popcorn pieces from the Ready to Pop stamp set in So Saffron ink and punched with our circle punches.

The boxes were embellished with a clown nose and matching tissue paper.


I was very glad to have the Mum Army to help get these 120 boxes made and ready for an amazing night.

Bird Banter and Petal Palette Love Card

I playing with some different for my products today, Bird Banter stamp set from Stampin' Up! is a set I received at November 2017 OnStage and is not a set I would by for myself, but these adorable Budgies lend themselves perfectly to the Stampin' Dreams Love Blog Hop. I added the sentiment from the Petal Palette stamp set which suited these images perfectly.


I stamped all the images in Momento ink and coloured them with Stampin' Blends in Olive Olive, Daffodil Delight, Night of Navy, Smokey Slate, Pink Pirouette, Rich Razzleberry and Cherry Cobbler. I filled some of the background with the Light Pool Party Blends and blended it out further with the Colour Lifter to create to faded out look. I added two chipboard outline hearts from the Hearts and Stars Elements to add some texture to the card and as a sparkly touch of Wink Of Stella to all the hearts. I added 2 layers of paper from the Tutti-frutti Paper Stack.

Heartfelt Blooms Sympathy Card

I recently has the sad need to make a sympathy card for my neighbour. My Motto when making these cards is keep it simple. I used the Heartfelt Blooms stamp set from Stampin' Up! that you can earn during Sale-a-Bration 2018. Its a Distinktive stamp which is a new style of Red Rubber stamp and I was ample to stamp this Rich Razzleberry image with is one stamping.


Since I had such a perfect image I didn't want to stuff up the sentiment also from the Heartfelt Blooms stamp set. I used my coming soon in the 2018-2019 Annual Catalogue Stamparatus to line it up just perfectly. I have the photos below to show you what I did.

I placed my stamped card in the corner of the Stamparatus along with the image sheet from the Stamp-a-ma-jig/or piece of Window Sheet to test out my lining up before I committed to it on the card with ink. 

Stamp-a-ma-jig Image sheet over the stamped image

Stamp on the image sheet to try out positioning. Move the stamp wipe of image sheet and try again if you are not happy with where you will be stamping.

When happy remove image sheet, ink up stamp and stamp on paper

Petal Palette Bundle with Petal Passion Paper Card

I was inspired to make this card using the Petal Palette Suite from Stampin Up! by one of my favourite crafters Amy Rsavy. When I saw her card I thought I have a great stamp set to CASE that card. Who can go past embossing and water colouring with vellum and a touch of copper?


The flowers are clear Heat Embossed on Watercolor Paper and watercolour washed with Melon Mambo and Old Olive inks with an Aqua Brush then die cut with the co-ordinating Thinlits. I stamped and Copper Heat Embossed the sentiment onto Vellum and added it to a piece of Petal Passion Paper and wrapped some of our copper thread around it to tie it all together.

This card part of a Blog Hop for a Demonstrator Group that I am a part if

Stampin Blends Artwork by my Son

Many of you may or may not know my son (Mr 13) is quite talented artist and has been dying to use my Stampin' Blends from Stampin' Up! thanks to copious amounts of You Tube art videos he has watched. As all good and protective crafter do I shared my wisdom of using them and got the teenager look. They all survived experience to tell the tale of their next project!!!!!



My Son sketched this Billy Connolly look a like in pencil and then filled in the ring the pairs of blends colours. He then added extra shading and the outline with a dip pen and ink.

I cannot draw to save my life but I really do adore that I can share my SOME of my supplies and knowledge with him.
