Here is my card:


How I made this card?

  • A6 Thick Whisper White Cardstock (297x105mm scored 148mm)
  • Blooms & Bliss Designer Series Paper 148x90mm
  • Used the hexagon details from the Window Box Thinlits Dies, I aligned the flat sides with the top and side edge of the DSP
  • I took the Emerald Envy Taffeta Ribbon, from the new Party Animal Suite, and wrapped it around card twice and tied a bow.
  • I adhered the DSP with Stampin’ Dimensionals
  • On Whisper White Cardstock I stamped the flower and outline from the Penned & Painted Stamp Set in Sweet Sugarplum and Rich Razzleberry
  • Then the leaves and outline in Mint Macaron and Emerald Envy
  • I fussy cut flower and leaves and flower out separately, and adhered those with Tear & Tape

Here is a close up of that detailed die from the new Window Box Thinlits Dies…


Until next time… Happy Stampin’



#GDP060 – Case the Designer

This week I played along with the Global Design Project and their Case the Designer Challenge, Caseing Brian King’s card.

Here is the challenge card:

I really liked the layout of Brian’s Card so that’s what I focused on when I created my card.

Here is my card:



My colour scheme used Wisteria Wonder, Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Paper and Whisper White.  I used the Perpetual Birthday Calendar and the Number of Years Photopolymer Stamp Set and the Large Number and  the Layering Circles Framelits Dies.

How I made this Card:

  • The card base is Thick Whisper White Cardstock A6 (210 x 148mm scored at 105mm);
  • Wisteria Wonder cut to 144 x 100mm;
  • I cut a circle into the centre of the Wisteria Wonder piece using the Circle frame lit that’s approx. 5.5cm;
  • Then I randomly stamped the hearts from the Perpetual Birthday Calendar in Wisteria Wonder and over the top in Whisper White Craft;
  • I stamped the Happy Anniversary from the Number of Years Stamp Set in Wisteria Wonder onto the Whisper White Piece that is 118 x 75mm;
  • I cut the numbers out with Large Numbers Framelits Dies out of the Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Paper, I adhered the numbers using Glue Dots onto that original circle that was cut out;
  • I used snail to attach the Wisteria Wonder piece, Stampin’ Dimensionals to adhere the Whisper White piece and finally the Wisteria Wonder circle adhered with snail.

I hope you enjoyed this quick and easy card.

Until next time… Happy Stamping,
