Good Morning Everyone,

Happy Friday!

Just a quick post this morning to remind you all that BONUS DAYS finishes today, so it's your last day to earn those coupons.

Comfort & Hope Masculine Get Well Soon Card

Good Morning Everyone,

How are we all doing today, I hope today is a good Day!

I have a card today to send well wishes to those, who may not be feeling 100% at the moment, and I think it lends itself well to a masculine card.



Measurements

Mossy Meadow Cardstock
1pc - 4 1/8" x 11 3/4", scored at 5 7/8"

Very Vanilla Cardstock
1pc - 5 5/8" x 3 7/8"
1pc - scrap for the circle
2pc - scrap for the corners
Scraps - for the leaves

Soft Suede Cardstock
1pc - scrap for the circle


Create your card base by folding the Mossy Meadow cardstock along the score line. Sponge the edges of the larger piece of Very Vanilla with Crumb Cake ink and add to the inside of the card.

Taking the twine loops, ink up in mossy meadow ink and cover the card front with this image. Add the leaf image to the centre of the circles.

Now take some scraps of Very Vanilla and cut a couple of triangles. Stamp the herringbone image onto these triangles in crumb cake in and them sponge the edges. Add these triangles to opposite corners of the card front.

On some more scraps, stamp the leaf image with Garden Green ink. fussy cut these out - I think I used about 8 in total.

Add the Soft suede circle to the centre of the card front, then arrange the leaves to fill out the circle.

On the very vanilla circle, stamp the twine loops in crumb cake, then add the sentiment from Gorgeous Posies in the centre. Sponge the edges with crumb cake ink. Add this over the leaves using dimensionals.

Using the Circles from the Stitched Shapes Dies, cut a large Soft Suede circle and a smaller circle in Very vanilla.

Meadow Moments Embossed Birthday Wishes Card. Share it on a Sunday

Good Morning Everyone,


Happy Sunday. That's right folks, its Share it on a Sunday again! I don't know about you, but this week seems to have flown by!

The theme this week is Embossing. For those who don't know, there's two types of embossing - Dry Embossing and Heat Embossing. I couldn't decide on one or the other so I decided to use both methods here!




Measurements

Seaside Spray Cardstock
1pc - 5 7/8" x 8 1/4", scored at 4 1/8"

Whisper White Cardstock
1pc - 5 5/8" x 3 7/8"

Terracotta Tile Cardstock
1pc - 3 1/2" x 5 7/8"

Pretty Peacock Cardstock
1pc - 3 1/4" x 5 7/8"

Scraps of Purple Posy & Rococo Rose Cardstock


Take the Seaside Spray Cardstock and fold along the score line, adding the whisper white panel to the inside. Add the Terracotta Tile Cardstock along the centre of the card front.

Run the Pretty Peacock cardstock through your die cutting machine in the Meadow Moments embossing folder. Add this to the centre of the Terracotta Tile piece on the card front.

On scraps of purple posy cardstock, stamp the sentiment from Fancy Phrases, and three of the flowers from Baskets of Bloom in versamark ink. Sprinkle silver embossing powder over and gently tap off the excess. Set the powder with your heat tool - making sure all the powder has melted and left you with shiny smooth lines.

Punch out the sentiment with the tailored Tag punch. Also cut one in Rococo Rose, cut this along the middle and add behind the sentiment, making sure you can see an even border of the colour at the top and bottom. Add this to the card front with Dimensionals.

Cut out the flowers using the small bloom punch and gently tease up the edges to give a little dimension. Place a silver metallic dot in the centre of each and add around the card front over the dry embossed leaves.

Finally take a few of the metallic pearls and add to the top of the embossed panel - there's actually some small embossed circles which are perfect for you to sit these on.


Be sure to check out what Donna And Karen made today too....

Sending Comfort and Hope Greeting Card. InspireINK July Blog Hop

Good Morning Everyone,

Happy Saturday, I hope you are all well today and enjoying your weekend so far.

Today I have a special post for you, I'm taking part in the InspireINK July Blog Hop, where we are all showcasing Stampin Up's Brand New In Colour Collection.








Measurements

Cinnamon Cider Cardstock
1pc - 4 1/8" x 11 3/4", scored at 5 7/8"

Just Jade Cardstock
1pc - 5 5/8" x 3 7/8"

Whisper White Cardstock
2pc - 5 3/8" x 3 5/8"
1pc - 4" x 2 1/2"

Bumblebee Cardstock
1pc - 4 1/8" x 2 5/8"


This card is super simple to put together and you are really relying on the beautiful colours to do all the work for you.

Fold your Cinnamon Cider cardstock along the score line to create your card base, then add one of  the larger pieces of whisper white to the inside, and the Just Jade cardstock to the card front.

Take the other largest piece of whisper white and using the twine loops image from Comfort and Hope, create a fun background by stamping it in all 5 colours across the card, overlapping and filling in most of the white space. Be sure to fully clean off your stamp in between ink colours otherwise you will just end up with a slushy messy colour.

Once you are happy with the patterning, add this piece to the centre of the Just Jade on the card front.

On the last piece of whisper white, stamp the comfort and Hope sentiment in the centre using Cinnamon Cider ink, and then add the other sentiments in opposite corners in Misty Moonlight ink.
Layer this onto the Bumblebee cardstock and then add to the card front.

I told you it was really easy, didn't I?

Please pop over and see what all the other talented ladies have created for this hop....

Good Evening Everybody,

I hope you are well this Friday Night?


Wanted to share this fab little Birthday card, which is super simple and just a little bit different. Now, because of all the colouring it's not the quickest card in the world, but I think it's definitely worth it

1pc - scrap for the sentiment

Bumblebee cardstock

1pc - 5 5/8" x 3 7/8"
1pc - 5 1/4" x 3"
1pc - scrap for the sentiment

Blackberry Bliss Cardstock
1pc - scrap for the balloon

Create your card base by folding your cherry cobbler cardstock alongthe score line. Add the largest piece of whisper white to the inside. Then layer up the Bermuda Bay and Bumblebee cardstock onto the card front

On the remaining piece of whisper white, ink up the three outline sentiments from Many Mates and randomly stamp them in Memento all over the card. Also, stamp the happy birthday onto a scrap of whisper white. Once this ink has dried, take a selection of blends and colour in all the letters.

Add the larger panel to the card front.

Layer up the sentiment onto some cherry cobbler. Punch out three balloons and attach some bakers twine to each. Add these to the card front with dimensionals and pull the bakers twine down the card. Adhere these strands under the sentiment and trim the ends.
