Baby, it's cold outside

These are the cards I made.


I used a new bundle that will be available on the 3rd August 2021 in the mini catalogue.
It is called Peaceful Deer and has some tree and deer images with a co-ordinating punch.


I decided to create a blended background and add some trees in Night of Navy, and then have the deer leaping through the laser cut snowflake that will also be available in August.






Here is the video of how I made them...

Stamping Sunday Blog Hop - Suite on You - Sweet Symmetry


Hi there and welcome to the Stamping Sunday Blog Hop, this month we are focusing on the Suites of products that Stampin' Up! create to make it easier to choose what we love.

I have chosen to focus on 
Sweet Symmetry 


it contains some very pretty papers, with patterns in the style of folk art, also an extremely versatile stamp set and punch.


I decided to create 3 cards.


The first one is made with just ink, card and paper, by making use of the symmetrical patterns in the stamp set, it was so easy to create this pattern using Calypso Coral, Polished Pink, Bumblebee and Night of Navy.


In the second card I wanted to use a piece of the beautiful paper, but also wanted to show off some of the stamps by using Night of Navy on the delicately patterned yellow paper.  By mounting it onto the matching card stock it really shows it off.


For the final card I wanted to show off the colourful paper and the leaf punch.

To watch my process here is a video

Creating cards from a Stamped Wreath with Ruth from Artful Stampin

One of my enduring and favourite things to do is to stamp with flower, leaf and texture images and create floral arrangements that can be used for paper craft projects.


I used a couple of stamp sets that will be available in August 2021.

One is called Gorgeous Leaves, and the other is going to be available as a freebie when you spend £90, it is called Delicate Dahlias.  The other floral stamp that I used is called Color and Contour and it's available in the Annual catalogue 2021-2022


For those of you who may be new to my blog, I have been using and showing people how to use stamps for the last 10 years.  Over that time I have enjoyed my personal development as a stamp and paper craft artist, and also sharing that on YouTube through my tutorials.

Here is how I stamped the wreath


The colours I used where:
Crushed Curry, Cajun Craze, Poppy Parade, Real Red, Basic Gray, Smoky Slate, Gray Granite and  Sahara Sand

The following day I cut up the wreath!
I know that still fills some of my viewers with dread, but the saying "you can't make a cake without cracking some eggs" comes to mind.

Here are the cards I made...


The beautiful grey leaves were cut using a new die set called Intricate Leaves, it accompanies the Gorgeous Leaves stamp set,


The scalloped rectangles are cut using Scalloped Contours Dies.



Can you spot the gold leaf accents?  They are from the Artistic Impressions Ephemera pack, they are laser cut pieces perfect for embellishing cards.

Stamping Sunday Blog Hop - Paper Party


Welcome! 
Thank you for popping to my blog, the focus this month is on paper.
Now I know a few of us have plenty of paper that we like to stroke and keep for that special project.

I have used the gorgeous Hand Penned DSP


Here is a card design that helps to use some up.

The base measures 11 5/8" by 6 1/8" and scored at 3 7/8" and 7 6/8"
The panels of paper measure 3 3/4" by 6".

I used quite a few different dies to create the embellishments to decorate the card.


For some of the decorations on the card I fussy cut flowers from the paper.




I used some of the scraps to create this box

Here is a video of my process...

Stamping Sunday Blog Hop - Bundled Up


Well, hasn't another month come around so quickly!

Welcome to the Stamping Sunday Blog Hop, pull up a chair, make a cuppa and enjoy some beautiful creations from Stampin' Up! demonstrators from all over the world.

We were asked to focus on a bundle of products.  Did you know that there are quite a few items in the Stampin' Up! catalogue that are designed to co-ordinate with each other.  This often helps with the creative process as I am not searching to find something to cut out an image or to find a matching tool.

Here is the Beauty of Friendship stamp set and Dies and I have 3 projects for you today.


As we said "goodbye" to a number of stamp sets that feature trees last month, I jumped at the chance to order this.  The stamps are really easy to match up... actually what I really mean is that you do NOT have to be precise to get a fabulous result.

Here I have used just the stamp set and 4 colours to create a soft effect.


I used Petal Pink, Pale Papaya, Gray Granite and Basic Gray and stamped onto Very Vanilla card, then mounted again onto a Very Vanilla card base.


This is the result of the additional use of one of the tree dies and a scalloped strip of Gray Granite, (I'm afraid I could not resist using the scallop edge die from Penned Flowers Dies).


And then here we have what happens when my mind turns to flowers!
I'm sorry I didn't get round to filming this.  

I cut out the "tree tops" from Pale Papaya card and cut a spiral into them and rolled them up to make the flowers.  Then cut various trees from Blackberry Bliss, Rich Razzleberry and Gray Granite card.  On the darker branches I swiped some Craft White Ink, and on the Gray Granite I brushed some Gray Granite Ink before gluing it all down.  Can you spot those adorable little birds nestled in there? They are also in the die set.  

The Artisty Blooms Self Adhesive sequins are so useful for adding a bit of sparkle and the clear dots from the Faceted Gems make great dew drops on the leaves.


Thank you for stopping by, and if you would like to purchase any of the products featured I have created a helpful link to all the products here  https://s.tamp.in/k1sm9G

---{Birds and Branches meets Hand Penned Petals}--

I am loving this new stamp set in the 2021-2022 annual catalogue.


It's called Hand Penned Petals, and it has the most delightful floral images with others to "fill" in.

An idea came to me after being inspired by {this} blog over the weekend.

I loved the way Hermine used a circle to frame the images on her card.

I recalled that we have an outline stamp in the set Floating and Fluttering...


...and decided that it would lovely paired with some birds from Birds and Branches



and some images from Tranquil Thoughts.



Here are the results.




The colours used include... Early Espresso, Soft Suede, Evening Evergreen, So Succulent, Pale Papaya, So Saffron, Balmy Blue, Blushing Bride, Coastal Cabana, Basic Gray, Smoky Slate and Crumb Cake

To see how I stamped these please look at the video {here}


Thank you for popping by, if you have been inspired by this idea please feel ftree to have a go and share the results on Artful Stampin Space, a Facebook group that can be found {here}
