Sweet Talk DSP & Create With Friends Stamp Set

 Hello and thanks for visiting!

Today's card was made to go along with these sweet little boxes from the Sweet Talk Designer Series Paper.  They'll be filled with valentine chocolates soon!  I learned to make these little boxes from Pootles, click here to visit her website.  




The card uses the Create With Friends Stamp Set, it's stamped with Real Red ink and fussy cut out.  I used the Bouquet of Love 3D Embossing Folder to emboss on the patterned paper.  It's difficult to see in this picture but there's a lovely subtle texture on the paper.  The Bouquet of Love Embossing Folder has a matching die Item #157641 in the  January - June Mini Catalogue.  Click here to see the details of this emboss and die combo.




To create the little boxes start with a piece of DSP measuring 4 x 10 1/2.    Score along the 10 1/2 inch side at 2 1/2; 5; 7 1/2 & 10.  Score along the 4 inch side at 1 1/2 to create the bottom of the box and secure with Stampin' Seal.  The box is held closed at the top with a Real Red Ribbon.  I hope to do a little short video or reel in the next couple of days to show how simple it is to create these little boxes - the 'Trix' is to ensure the pattern of the paper is oriented correctly - so stay tuned.  Click here to see the Sweet Talk Designer Series paper Item #157616 in my online store.

Happy & Heartfelt for #GDP326

 Hello and thanks for visiting!

I created today's card for the Global Design Project Sketch Challenge #326.  Please click on either my card or the GDP image to visit their blog post for all the inspiration!

I love the clean and simple look of white cards, and I always look for a bit of texture when I create a clean and simple styled card.  However I couldn't decide which 3D Embossing Folder I preferred, so I made them both.  I can always use more Valentines Cards :) 

*** Click here to shop the supplies to make this card.


Please leave me a comment and let me know which card you prefer :)  thx so much!

#1  for #GDP326 uses the Ornate Floral 3D Embossing Folder Item #152725 


Click my card to visit #GDP326




- OR -


#2 the Timeworn Type 3D Embossing Folder  Item #156505 






The card is quite simple to make, the card base is Thick Basic White and the layers are Basic White.  My favourite red, Cherry Cobbler for the sentiment, is glued to the little heart from the Bouquet of Love Hybrid Embossing Folder and matching dies, Item #157641  


The GDP sketch that inspired my card

Click the image to visit #GDP326



Assembly & Trix:

*  There really isn't any 'Trix' with this card, each Basic White Embossed layer is 1/4 of an inch smaller than the plain Basic White CS layer.  You can adjust the sizing as per your preference and size of pattern on the embossing folder.

*  Glue the embossed layers to the plain layers.

*  Adhere the 3 x 3 square with Stampin' Dimensionals (dimensionals) 

*  The sentiment is fussy cut and attached with glue to the heart.  The Ornate Embossing Folder card has a 1/4 x 3 1/4 inch strip of Basic White CS added as per the sketch.

Nuts & Bolts for #TGIFC351

 Hello and thanks for visiting!

Today's card is for the #tgif challenge 351, a fun sketch challenge!  Please click on my card or the tgif challenge image to visit their blog for lots of inspiration!


Click on the card to visit #tgifc351


I love monochromatic colour palettes,  and I love the Stampin' Up!® Designer Series Papers!  I was able to used leftover strips of DSP for this fantastic sketch.  The DSP is from the Sweet Talk DSP pack (in the new January to June Mini Catalogue)   Do you have any leftover strips of DSP in your stash?  If so go make a card using the sketch as inspiration and join the fun!

This week has been all about Colour Embossing and Watercolouring for me.  Today's card is created using a Real Red Heat Embossed robot & sentiment,  and then coloured in with a Blushing Bride Watercolour wash on Thick Basic White Cardstock.   I've also added a watercolour wash to the background.  The Sweet Talk DSP has a super watercolour wash pattern on one of the papers, but I wanted a more linear, horizontal pattern so I decided to create the background with Blushing Bride ink and a Water Painter.

For more inspiration using Colour Emboss with Watercolouring check these posts: January 16th  &  January 18th

For a quick idea of how to Colour Emboss check out the Pinterest Idea Pin here   For more inspiration from Lesley's StampinTrix Pinterest page please click here

4 x 5 1/4 Thick Basic White Cardstock (CS)

3 different strips of Sweet Talk DSP: 1/2 inch x 3 7/8; 3/4 of an inch x  3 3/4; 3/4 of an inch x 3 1/4

Strip of Real Red CS 1/4 of an inch  x  14/16 

4 1/4 x 5 1/2 Scrap Thick Basic White CS for the Coloured Embossed & Watercoloured image and sentiment

Nuts & Bolts Stamp Set

Stitched Rectangle Dies

Ink Colours:  Real Red & Blushing Bride

VersaMark Ink

Clear Embossing Powder

Assembly & Trix:

*  Apply a light watercolour wash using diluted Blushing Bride ink to the CS layer and set aside to dry.

*  Using the Stamparatus™ stamp the robot using Real Red Ink.  ***Trix, repeat the stamping a couple of times to get a nice deep red ink layer,  it will add to the colour emboss look.

*  Clean the stamp and re ink using VersaMark, ensure there is a good coating of VersaMark ink on the image.  Then sprinkle with clear embossing powder and heat set.  

*  Create the sentiment layer the same as above, 1st with Real Red Ink and 2nd with VersaMark ink.  

*  Apply a  Blushing Bride watercolour wash to the image and sentiment strip and set aside to dry.  Colour the heart with a Real Red watercolour wash.

*  Die cut the robot with a Stitched Rectangle Die.

*** Trix, determine the placement of the image, sentiment and strips of DSP first by laying them on the card base.  Fussy cut the sentiment apart if you wish.  Adhere all pieces to the watercoloured washed CS layer with Multipurpose Liquid Glue (glue)  Pop up the robot with Stampin' Dimensionals.

*  Adhere the CS layer to the card base with glue.

awww, thanks with the Otters 2.0

 Hello and thanks for visiting!

Have you ever created a card and then thought, no wait, what if I add ___ instead of _____?  Well that's what happened to me Tuesday.  Monday Jan 10th was the Blog Hop for the Demonstrator Training Program I'm part of, compliments of Bruno & Kylie Bertucci. 

Each watercoloured image looked slightly different after it dried.  The Pool Party seemed to be the predominant colour.  So today I created a couple of cards with the extra images - and Pool Party was calling to me instead of Misty Moonlight for the backgrounds. 


Pool Party card base & layer embossed with Bark Embossing Folder


Both images were  watercoloured with Misty Moonlight and Pool Party on Fluid 100 Watercolor Paper.  I love the way colour blends on this paper providing different colour intensity.  I think that's one of the reasons I love watercolouring, I never know what I'm going to get until the paper dries :)


Sahara Sand card base & Pattern Party DSP layer


Assembly & Trix:

The layout is the same 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 card base.  The middle layer is 4 x 4 1/4 & the watercolour layer is 3 1/2 x 4 1/2.  ***Trix, the watercoloured layer is distressed using old scissors and crumpled to softened the fibers of the paper.  

If you missed the card I created for Kylie & Bruno's Blog Hop, click here to visit and pick up the links for the Hop.

'This' (Pool Party) or 'That'  (Misty Moonlight)

Floral Squares Dies for The Paper Players #573 Color Challenge

Hello and thanks for visiting!

Today's card is for Anne Marie's Color Challenge over at The Paper Players.  Please click on either my card or the Paper Players image to visit their blog post and enjoy the inspiration :)



Click the image to visit the PP573 Challenge



The sentiment from 'Lovely You' Stamp Set combined with the Floral Squares Dies creates the focal image for the card.  The Stitched Greenery Die adds a bit of texture and is the same size as the card base.  



Click the image to visit the PP573 Challenge


Assembly & Trix:

There's very few Trix to this card, the Just Jade leaves are fussy cut and glued onto the Basic Black Square Die.  Calypso Coral CS is added for the flowers for one square die, and the other uses Pale Papaya CS. 

*  Adhere the 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 Thick Basic White Stitched Greenery Die layer to a 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 Thick Basic White card base with Mulitpurpose Liquid Glue, (glue). 

*  Fussy cut the coloured CS and glue to the Black frame.  ***Trix, apply glue to the Black Square Dies and then add the coloured CS.  I find this helpful when my hands get shaky :)

*  Stamp the sentiment with Memento Black Ink, fussy cut and adhere using Stampin' Dimensionals.

*  Embellish with the Classic Matte Dots.

Floral Squares Dies with Lovely You Stamp Set

 Hello and thanks for visiting!

Today's card is for the TGIF Challenge #350  The Night of Navy and Blushing Bride background is watercoloured on Fluid 100 Watercolor Paper.  I embossed the tips of the flower with gold heat embossing, all set on a Blushing Bride card base.

Click the image to visit the #tgifc350 challenge


Assembly & Trix:

*  Apply a water wash to the Fluid 100 Watercolor Paper before applying colour.

*  Practise on some scrap paper first to decide on the intensity of colour.  Remember the more water on the paper the more the colour will run and disapate.  Set aside to dry and ***Trix, weigh it down with a clear block while you do the embossing step.

*  Use an Embossing Buddy or something to remove static from the Floral Square so the embossing powder only goes where you wish.   ***Trix, use a sponge dauber to dab the VersaMark onto the Floral Square Die.  Emboss with Gold Embossing Powder.

*  Emboss the sentiment from the Lovely You stamp set with Gold Embossing Powder on Blushing Bride cardstock (CS) and fussy cut out.

*  Distress the edges of the dry watercoloured layer with scissors and adhere using Multipurpose Liquid Glue (glue) to a Blushing Bride CS layer that is an  1/8 of an inch bigger.  Then adhere to the card base with glue.

*  Adhere the Floral Square to the watercoloured layer with Stampin' Dimensionals (dimensionals)

*  Adhere the gold twine to the sentiment layer with Mini Glue Dots.  ***Trix, adhere the sentiment to the watercolour layer with a dimensional where it hangs off the edge of the Floral Square. 


*** And for a bit of fun, here's my question for you :)   What's your favourite, the card with the distressed watercoloured layer, slightly off center as above, or the clean card below that is centered on the card base?  Please leave me a comment in the comment section below I'd love to know your preference :)
