Inked Botanicals

I am loving the Inked Botanicals Bundle & Designer Series Paper and wanted to use it in my Facebook Live a few weeks ago.

This suite is a fabulous set of products and you will just love to have in your stash of craft supplies. I wanted to show off the Designer Series Paper because I just love this paper and the colours that are used.

Here is my quick video for my Inked Botanicals Suite

Queen Bee

The Queen Bee Stamp set is one that didn’t really appeal to me when I first went through the Mini Catalogue but after seeing a class that Erica Cerwin created I knew I just had to have it! Below are the projects I created on my facebook live today and I also added in a cute fancy fold card.

In the video below is my very quick video that is only about 8 minutes or so. If you want to watch the full video you can watch that right here. This will give you an overview of how I have created the cards. But if you’d like to watch with some extra directions then you can check out the longer video that is also on my YouTube channel.

Hannah Turns 12 in Lockdown

My youngest daughter Hannah turns 12 in Lockdown today. We live in Sydney Australia and we have been in lockdown since the end of June and we are now at week 11 and there looks like there will be another 8 weeks at least.

But as Hannah turns 12 and we are in lockdown I wanted to celebrate her as much as we can at this time. So I made her this card as she is a huge fan of Harry Potter. She has read all the books and her favourite house is Hufflepuff which is why the card is the colours that they are. The majority of her gifts are Harry Potter related so I hope she is going to be super excited with them.

I used the Suit & Tie dies and the Playful Alphabet dies from Stampin’ Up! And then used the Biggest Wish stamp set for the sentiment inside. I did make a smudge on the collar but hopefully it just adds to the look of the card and highschool 🙂

March Stampers Anonymous Team BlogHop #28

Welcome to the March Stampers Anonymous Team BlogHop #28. You may have joined me from Elizabeth’s Blog or you may have started here. This month’s Blog Hop is to a colour challenge. Colour challenges can be fun and not so fun, if you know what I mean. But I do like these colours together and I knew which stamp set I wanted to use straight away.

I wanted to use products from the January to June Mini Catalogue and I like the Fine Art Floral Suite. And with so many great products that are still available, you’ll want to get your hands on these products now.

I had some inspiration for this card from one I recieved this past week from our Demonstrator Development Manager, Clare. Her card is gorgeous and had an embossed frame and I wanted to incorporate that into my card.
However, I felt the white in the background was a bit stark for me so I chose one of colours to be a background layer. Then I chose the coordinating Painted Texture 3D Embossing Folder from the Art Gallery Suite. I applied some ink to the folder and then ran it through
the Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine to add some depth to the embossed image.
