HILLS OF TUSCANY meets GARDEN MEADOW artfulstampin style!

I loved the results of this experiment that I just had to share it with you!

Mixing stamp sets together comes really naturally to me as I have learned to appreciate the infinite potential of doing this.  However I am aware that I don't want to overwhelm my viewers and readers with too many choices.

I think these cards prove a happy medium.

I use just two stamp sets; Hills of Tuscany 162682 and Garden Meadow 162736, or in this case Jardin Des Pres.  I was accidently sent the stamp set and Stampin' Up! were kind enough to let me keep it.


The ink pads I used were
Early Espresso, Pecan Pie and Crumb Cake


To colour in some of the details I used
Early Espresso, Pecan Pie, Crumb Cake and Petal Pink Stampin' Write Markers.


I stamped on Very Vanilla Card, then mounted them on Early Espresso, Pecan Pie and Crumb Cake Card.


I love how they have resulted in a tranquil, sepia toned cards.

To see how I stamped them watch this video

Stamping Sunday Blog Hop - Whimsical Wings and Soaring Hearts

Hello and welcome to this month's hop with the theme

Whimsical Wings and Soaring Hearts

I'm going to go straight to it and present my card...


I used the Bee Mine Designed Series Paper that is from the current Mini Catalogue and went a bit grungy on it with the Pecan Pie ink - which is awesome for that vintage look.


The heart was created with triangles from the Patchwork Pieces Dies set 161592 and the Flowers and leaves from the Paper Florist Dies set 161284. The lovely butterfly wings are already precut and in the Paper Butterfly Accents 162612

To view how I made it watch this.

Please check out the other hoppers today and give their blogs some love!

Stamping Sunday Blog Hop - Mainly Monochrome

Thank you for hopping to me today :) A special hello if you've reached me from Katja's blog


So our theme this month is Manly or Mainly Monochrome

I choose to go Monochromatic first, however I think these card's might fit into the Manly category.

I used the gorgeous Botanical Beauty stamp set from Stampin' Up! (162903) and the Around the Bend dies (160649)
with Basic Black, Basic Gray, Smoky Slate and Basic White card stock, then stamped with Smoky Slate ink and Basic Gray ink.


I love using contrasts to make patterns really pop, made all the more special when it has been created yourself.


I actually stamped on a whole sheet of Basic White card and have lots left over for another project.

To see how I made the card, take a look at this video

Happy NEW Year - New template resource

Hello, and a Happy 2024 to you.

The end of a year and the beginning of a new one often gives me time to reflect and think about ways to improve myself, and the processes I use in my life.  I am already pleased to announce that one of those changes has already been implemented and seems to be working, and already helpful to myself and my customers.  I have enlisted the help of an online website to help with booking my online classes.  


You can see what I have on offer and be able to book on here.

But wait! That's not all...
I am constantly designing cards, I run a monthly class where I have to design and create the kits for 3 cards, I have a YouTube channel to provide ideas for and sometimes those are completely improvised and of the moment.  Either way there are some advantages to being able to simply record designs that are tried and tested and can easily be repeated with alternative paper, card and embelishments.

So... my plan is, whenever I design a fancy fold card, I will draw out a plan for it on grid paper, take a photo, and share it on here or on my Facebook group.

So this is my first one recorded in this way...


The idea for this card popped into my head and I immeadiately embraced it as I love the idea of adding dimension to a card, but still keeping it flat for posting.


I used the FREE Saleabration paper from Stampin' Up!  (2024) called Trusty Toolbox and loved how it turned out.
I created a pop-up tube on which to place my focal point.


During my YouTube live I remade it, slightly adapting it with a shorted tube, moving it's position, changing the paper, card and embellishments.


Those laser cut butterflies are available in the new MINI CATALOGUE product no 162612


The self adhesive sequins make an instant finishing touch for them - product no 161206

Here is the measurements, and if you want to see how to assemble it please watch my video below.
