Quick Make Trio of Hearts Card

I’ve got a very quick card for you today which you can make in minutes using the Pleased as Punch Designer Series Paper

Easy to Make Sale-A-Bration 2020 Coordination Product DSP

This 12″X12″ DSP coordinates with the following punches.

  • Heart Punch pack
  • Tulip Builder Punch
  • Umbrella Builder Punch
  • Small Blooms Punch

It’s available until 31st March or while stocks last so you’ll want to get in quick for this pretty pack of paper. 

Simply punch out 3 hearts from the DSP using the plain heart from the Heart Punch pack and adhere them to the bottom of your Whisper White layer. Attach a piece of Bermuda Bay ribbon across the top using Tear n’ Tape. Then wrap the Linen Thread 3 times around this layer. I tied the bow separately and attached it with a glue dot. 

The sentiment was stamped in Shimmer Black Embossing Powder on Coastal Cabana cardstock. I love how this shines and the black accents the sentiment.

Forever Blossoms Engagement Card

I’ve got an engagement card to share with you today which I made for a special order. The theme was a rustic yet elegant look. This is an A5 card to which I added the Woven Threads Designer Series Paper. The front of my card was trimmed about 1.5cm shorter on the width. Then I added a strip of Designer Series Paper on the inside of the card,  creating a pretty border. 

I paired the Magnolia Lane Memories & More card pack and Designer Series Paper with the Forever Blossoms stamp set to achieve just the right touch of rustic and added the beautiful Silver Metallic Edged ribbon to add the touch of elegance. I am a huge fan of gingham (you might have guessed) and if it’s rustic, gingham’s in. The Neutrals Designer Series Paper stack has 4 different patterns in all our Neutral colours. This collection is a must have in my Designer Series Paper stash as neutral colours work in with a lot of projects. The gingham heart was punched out with one of the hearts from the Heart Punch Pack. It was then adhered to the reverse of one of the heart doilies.

I stamped the blossoms on Shimmery White cardstock in Early Espresso ink. I went against the general rule of using water-based markers with a non-water based ink pad – like Stazon. The image was coloured in with Petal Pink and Old Olive Stampin’ Write Markers, using an Aqua Painter to blend it. As I wanted a softer look, I chose the Early Espresso ink and I didn’t really mind that it blended in a bit as it added to the rustic look of the card. 

The inside of the card was decorated with a couple of cards from the Memories & More Card Pack. Adding this was a perfect touch for this happy couple. Memories & More card packs are great for scrapbooking as well cardmaking, as I’ve done here.

Stampin’ Dreams Blog Hop – Valentine’s Day

Hi crafty friends,

Welcome to Stamping Flair and thank you for stopping by to see what I have created for the Stampin’ Dreams Valentine’s Day inspired blog hop. There’s still time for some last minute creating and we are here to inspire you.

Stampin' Dreams Blog Hop July Designer Series Paper

I’ve got a little treat bag for you today and this is definitely perfect for a last minute make as it is very quick to create. Stampin’ Up! have some gorgeous gift packaging and these Copper Dotted Treat Bags are simple and elegant.

I stamped the lacy heart in Real Red and then layered it on a heart punched out of the Designer Series Paper and then set it against one of those beautiful doilies. At $9.50 for 40 doilies these are great value as there is so much you can do with them.

The wood grain paper is from the Pressed Petals Specialty DSP. If it has wood, I love it and I find it so versatile. Add a few chocolates in the cute cellophane bags for some added prettiness and you’ve got a lovely little treat bag.

Joy of Sets Blog Hop – Love is in the Air


Welcome to my blog and the Joy of Sets monthly blog hop. No surprises with our theme this month – Love is in the Air. If you are new to my blog, I hope you enjoy my projects and become a regular.

The Joy of Sets - One Stamp 3 Ways

With only a few days left to Valentine’s Day, we hope to inspire you with our projects. So please make sure you stop by all the blogs for loads of ideas to help you create something special for that special someone.

My projects started off with my idea of using the Detailed Hearts Die with watercolouring. Then I chose my colours of Mint Macaron and Blushing Bride. Using an aqua painter, I watercoloured a panel of Shimmery White cardstock. 

Heartfelt bundle, Stampin' Up!, Watercolouring with aqua painters

Stampin' Up!, Hearfelt bundle, Heart doily cut in half and layeredThe card base was embossed with the Pinewood Planks embossing folder. Then I layered a panel of Blushing Bride cardstock die cut with the Stitched Rectangles die. I die cut another piece of Whisper White cardstock in the same size. Then using the Detailed Hearts die, I embossed the white panel. 

I stamped and punched the heart from the watercoloured cardstock and cut a Heart doily in half to create a smaller matte around this image.

How to make a gift tag with a rectangle die

I had some watercoloured cardstock left so I made a gift tag for this cute bag which is in the Birthday Bonanza suite. One of the Stitched Rectangle dies was used to create the banner shape.

I added some of the die cut hearts from my card to embellish the tag and this gift bag filled with chocolate hearts was all set for giving.

Stampers Showcase Blog Hop January 2020 – All You Need is Love

When you saw the title of this blog hop did you start singing? I just can’t get that one line out of my head – and it’s only one note!! 

Stampers Showcase Blog Hop Header

I’m hopping with other talented demonstrators from the Stampers Showcase Blog Hop group and it’s all about that word, L-O-V-E. That’s another song to get you singing. Valentine’s Day is only a couple of weeks away so we hope to inspire you with projects that you can make to give your loved one. Make sure you go through all the blogs to see the creativity that is shared by all the lovely ladies. 

I have used the Parisian Beauty bundle to create my card and it’s the first card I’ve made with this bundle. Paris is known to be the City of Love so that was my inspiration. 

I started off by creating a watercolour wash using Seaside Spray, Smoky Slate and Rococo Rose ink refills on shimmery White cardstock. 

The flourishes were die cut with Whisper White cardstock and then I used a sponge dauber to add Rococo Rose to it. I chose not to use Rococo Rose cardstock as I wanted a softer look.

The sentiment has been layered on a panel of Whisper White cardstock stamped with the script stamp in this set and then run through with the beautiful Parisian Flourish 3D Embossing Folder. To add more depth, I then added Rococo Rose to the raised parts using my sponge dauber.

I stamped the bird and hearts from the Music from the Heart stamp set which is my favourite stamp set in this catalogue. The silver hearts are Epoxy Heart Droplets which I covered with Versamark, then Silver Embosssing Powder and heat embossed. 

Thank you for stopping by my blog. All products I’ve used on this card are listed below.  Next up on the hop is Mo Rootes. Click on the Next button to see what inspiration she has for you today.

Kre8tors Blog Hop January 2020 – SAB & Mini Catalogue


Today I’m hopping with other demonstrators for the Kre8tors blog hop. I’m really glad that you are able to visit my blog to see what I’ve created.

Kre8tors Blog Hop August Color Challenge

We are using products from the 2020 Mini and Sale-A-Bration catalogues to create our projects. I chose a particular stamp set which stands out for me.

Apart from my love of papercrafting, all my life I have been surrounded by music. My mum was a music teacher and together with her and my sister, we used to sing trios at our church. My partner, Adrian is a music teacher and accompanist for choirs and my daughter also enjoys playing clarinet, guitar and singing. So I don’t think it’s a surprise that my favourite stamp set in the Mini Catalogue is Music from the Heart. I love the images and sentiments which are just so apt for the music lover. 

Music from the Heart, Music Notes Stamp Set, Treble Clef, Musician

I have created a fun set of note cards using this stamp set and focused on the hearts. It’s so easy to create lots of cards as there are a lot of images. 

I’ve used the Best Dressed Designer Series Paper to create a colourful background. The clear Epoxy Heart droplets were coloured with the Lovely Lipstick Stampin’ Blend. I coloured them with about 3 layers to get a good coverage.

I just love the sentiment of this next card – it’s bound to cheer someone’s spirits. Those birds are so cute and add just a lovely touch to the card. 

Forget your trebles handmade card with die cut hearts

This stamp set just makes cardmaking quick and I just couldn’t stop as I had so many ideas. The variety of stamps that come in this set make it so easy to do background stamping and create fun, individual patterns on paper.

Background stamping creates music Designer Series Paper, Music from the Heart

I love this image of the grand piano with the heart and that sentiment would make it a great Valentine’s Day card. 

Grand piano card, Stampin' Up!

Music from the Heart is a stamp set for all occasions. I hope this inspires you have a play with this beautiful stamp set which has been inspired by Million Sales Achiever Dawn Olchefske. Please leave me a comment as I love hearing from you.
