Bloomin heart valentines and beautiful you

Last weeks theme was love and romance which I thought was very appropriate seeing as we were fast approaching Valentine's Day. 

I am sharing our cards we made using the Bloomin' Heart thinlits die and a variety of other flowers and heart dies and punches

 The ladies had fun creating their cards as I gave them various options on whether they wished to use all the flowers, hearts, bows and sentiment in their design.

   They were all very unique and lovely and for those not wishing to send valentine's cards were ideally suited for anniversary, wedding and engagement

A quick card was required to finish the class so we used the dancing lady from the Beautiful You stamp set and co-ordinating sentiment.  The new watercolour pencils were used to colour in the hat and dress and some wink of stella to give it a little sparkle and a band of ribbon around the card

A very simple, but classy looking card  which can be completed in minutes

Dragonfly dreams part IIIand Lift me up

Here is the third part of the cards using the Dragonfly Dreams stamps and co-ordinating Detailed Dragonfly Thinlits dies

I cased the following card  from Pinterest as I thought the technique and overall finished effect was absolutely stunning and can be used in a variety of different colour combinations

Colour combination for this card is Mint Macaron, Island Indigo and Emeral Envy.  Each stamp pad was stamped a couple of times onto one piece of acetate and then spritzed with water to get the colours to combine and mix with each other. Using a strip of shimmery white card which has also been spritzed with water  place it on top of the acetate and carefully press down to transfer the colours to the card and then leave to dry and you will be amazed at the effect you have created!

Once the image was dry the dragonfly was randomly stamped on top in Emerald Envy and the spots in Island indigo.

The dragonflies were kept whole for this card with no fussing cutting!

Resist embossing with Stampin' Up! Dragonfly dreams

Another couple of cards to share with you today featuring the ‘Dragonfly Dreams' stamps and co-ordinating 'Detailed Dragonfly' Thinlits dies. 

I am loving this set so much, I don't want to put it down as I seem to be finding lots of different cards that I want to create with it. These cards are part two in a series of three we have made in our recent classes showing a variety of different techniques

Resist embossing technique using white embossing powder and a background wash with aquapainters in wisteria wonder and blushing bride ink swooped across the card.

Large dragonfly was die cut in vellum and small dragonfly heat embossed with blushing bride embossing powder and die cut.

I really like this colour combination of this card in bermuda bay and mint macaron. A couple of the smaller dragonflies were die cut, separated and glued onto co-ordinated card and fussy cut around and placed onto stamped background with the dots from the same stamp set with dimensionals

The dragonfly dreams is available as a bundle in photopolymer for £42.25 which is a saving of 10% if they were purchased separately, and remember for every £45 spend you can choose one of 11 products for FREE during Sale-a-bration

Dragonfly Dreams and Nailed it Bundles

Hello everyone, 

Our card classes begun again last week and although we have enjoyed all the recent festive activities it is always lovely to get back into a regular routine again.

There are so many stamps to choose from the New Stampin' Up! Spring/Summer catalogue it is very hard to say which ones are my favourite but Dragonfly Dreams and Nailed it are at the top!

Dragonfly Dreams was one of my first purchases from the catalogue during the pre-order period Demonstrators are eligible for. I love the intricate thinlit dies which co-ordinate with the stamps.The dragonfly dreams is available as a bundle in photopolymer for £42.25 which is a saving of 10% if they were purchased separately.  

Nailed it and Dragonfly Dreams

I teamed the Dragonfly Dreams set with Timeless Textures to create the background in crumb cake, wisteria wonder and elegant eggplant

 A lot of us all find great difficulty in creating those cards for men so I think the Nailed It set is absolutely perfect for all this who are interested in DIY

Nailed it is also available as a bundle with a saving of 10% (wood £45 and Clear mount £38.50)

The tools were stamped twice in black memento onto red and smoky slate cardstock, die cut and paper pieced together. They have been mounted onto one of the ovals from the stitched shapes framelits, I am pleased to say these framelits are now back in stock and available to order.

Sale-a-bration is in full swing at the moment and for every £45 spent you are entitled to choose one of the 11 FREE items from the accompanying leaflet.
