Thank you for stopping by, I hope you are having a lovely day! The Darling Details Stamp Set and co-ordinating Darling Details Dies really are darling! I love this bundle as the images are able to be coloured or stamped depending on what you'd like to create. For these cards I stamped, if you would like to see the card I water-coloured please click here . I love using one layout and altering it, so many possibilities! Which colour combination is your favourite? This Bubble Bath version was created on my Facebook Live yesterday, you can watch it  here  if you are interested in seeing how I created this card. A Basic White card base is one of my favourites, I love how fresh and smart it looks. The Basics 3D Embossing Folders are, in my opinion, a must have in your craft stash! The two I have used create a very subtle yet elegant look. Do you have these folders? I hope you enjoyed my cards for today. Have a great weekend and I'll see you again soon x Shop Stampin' Up!

The Be Inspired Design Team are hopping today and our theme this month is "Summer". It's past the shortest day here in New Zealand now so I'm hoping Summer won't be too far away!   I'm looking forward to seeing what everyone has created! P lease be sure to hop all the way around for lots of inspirational projects created by the design team. Have you seen the Darling Details Stamp Set on page 68 of the Stampin' Up! Catalogue? It is such a gorgeous set with lots of pretty images and I love the fonts that have been used for the sentiments! Sweet Sorbet created the lovely rich colour of the flowers with leaves of Granny Apple Green. I added these onto a blended background of Boho Blue. The sentiments in this set are very useful and I love the mix of fonts. I have created a video tutorial for this card, click on the link below to watch! Next up in today's hop is my lovely and inspirational friend Louise in Australia , I'm looking forward to seeing what

Hello and welcome to my blog! It's lovely to have you here. Have you seen the Berry Harvest Stamp Set in the Stampin' Up! Annual Catalogue? It's on page 118. It is such a versatile stamp and I am enjoying creating cards with it! To create this card I stamped the image in Memento Ink onto a piece of Basic White Cardstock then using Blending Brushes I added Calypso Coral and Melon Mambo. I added the colour in swirls gradually building up the colour. It is a quick but striking technique. To add another detail, I splattered the card with White Pigment Ink.  The Happy Birthday sentiment is from the Artistically Inked Stamp Set and has been heat embossed in white and layered over a black bow. To finished it off I added some black Classic Matte Dots. To see a video on how I created this card, please click here . In the video I also show a number of other cards I have created using this stamp set. What stamp set do you find most versatile? Product List Artistically Inked
