I’ve only recently discovered the Triple Layer Stamping technique (you will find loads of tutorials if you Google it) but having done so, I love it. It is very simple but very effective. Here’s my first go:

P1030826

I’ve used Marina Mist throughout. The seam binding ribbon was originally Baja Breeze, but I went over it with a Marina Mists stamp pad and it coloured up relly well. I cut down the long edges and then teased the threads so it frayed. I’ve added some little pearls as a finishing touch.

Can’t wait to try this technique some more.

Just for You – CCMC#246

This week’s challenge over at Create with Connie and Mary is another colour challenge requiring the use of Island Indigo,  Calypso Coral and Real Red. Again, the supplies available to me were limited but I quite like having to think about how to combine what I do have. On this occasion all I had in Calypso Coral was the flower in the Pop-Up Posies Kit and for Island Indigo I had ribbon and the Sycamore Street designer papers.

Love the Real Red with the Indigo Island 🙂 I cut  and layered the paper and cardstock and then added three layers of petals from the Pop-Up Posies set. I decided to use a Real Red button for the centre instead of one of the brads in the pack.

P1030642

I ran a strip of ribbon down the side and added a little bow plus a flower using a stamp from the Spring Sampler set and some Real Red ink.

The sentiment is also stamped in Real Red.

Spring is in the Air – SUO #67

Today I a sharing a card that I’ve made for the current SU-Only Challenges which has the theme “Spring is in the air.” I’m ridiculously excited about my new blossom punch and Mixed Bunch stamp set, but even more excited about what I did with some Very Vanilla seam binding! (Little things! :))

P1030576

To me, nothing says spring like daffodils, so I thought I’d use the Mixed Bunch stamp along with Daffodil Delight ink and some Desgner Brights buttons to make some daffodil like flowers.

P1030578

I used subtles Designer Series Paper (so sad to hear Certainly Celery is going :() and Daffodil Delight cardstock for the background before popping on the flowers. I swept a Daffodil Delight inkpad along some Very Vanilla seambinding ribbon. I just love how that turned out – that colour is too scrumptious!

P1030576

To finish I stamped out the sentiment, using Pumpkin Spice ink, onto Daffodil Delight Cardstock.

Wedding card CCMC#245

It’s another sketch over at Create With Connie and Mary for challenge #245. As it is my cousin Olivia’s wedding on Saturday I decided to combine the challenge with creating her wedding card.

P1030572

I’m so pleased that I bought the Artisan Embellishments Kit when I placed my last Stampin Up! order. The lace that comes with it is absolutely dreamy and I hope Stampin’ Up! will sell it by the metre sometime very soon.

P1030570

I used Crumb Cake Designer Papers on Whisper White cardstock for the base and then ran the lace across the card, using Sticky Strip to adhere it. I’ve made a bow from the seam binding and attached a rose, which is from the kit, to the centre, first curling the stem around a cocktail stick. I tucked in the “LOVE” ticket, which is also from the kit and finally his and hers butterflies which I stamped and cut out.

P1030573

I have another friend getting married in the summer and intend to do a similar version of this card for her too as I just love how its turned out.

Going Green – SUO Challenge #65

I had another delivery of fab Stampin’ Up! goodies this week and couldn’t wait to have a play. I’ve also been looking out for blog challenges that I can link up with. Today I have been working on a card to share over at the SU Only Challenges blog which has the theme of “Going Green.” Here’s what I made:

P1030266

I have to confess to being totally in love with the Designer Series Paper Stacks, especially the spotty paper in Certainly Celery from the Subtles collection. I also used some of the Wild Wasabi from the same pack. I edged them all with Old Olive ink then layered them up. The top two layers are raised on Stampin’ Dimensionals. I’ve run a strip of Very Vanilla seam binding across the card and popped on two little Designer Buttons.

P1030264

I stamped the snail in Old Olive, punched out using the circle scallop punch and edged with more ink before adding the button. I used a Stampin’ Dimensional to lift the whole thing.  The sentiment is from the Itty Bitty stamps – I had to cut it out as I don’t have the matching dies – yet!!!!

P1030263

The finishing touch was to add the bow.

P1030268

P1030267

The majority of my rapidly expanding Stampin’ Up stamps are the clear ones rather than the wooden mounted. I LOVE how these come packaged like DVDs. It makes storage so easy and means that they don’t get lost.

Thanks for buzzing by and check back here soon as I have lots more to share with you 🙂
