Here is the challenge:


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,

Global Design Project #GDP004 | Case the Designer

The other day I had sat down to finish off my brother 21st birthday invitations which he had started a couple of weekends ago and being a typical 20 year old still hasn’t finished.  So when I soon ran out of birthday details instead of printing out more I also got distracted by my Flurry of Wishes stamp set that I had yet to try out.  I had also seen this challenge and thought I give it a go.

As much as I love cherry cobbler, I also like the idea of a neutral christmas.  So went and stamped the Flurry of Wishes, the stamp with the two snowflakes, in both Soft Suede and Crumb Cake.  Punched them out but only used the smaller snowflake.  After playing with the placement I decided on using snail on the Crumb Cake and dimensionals on the Soft Suede.  Added a bow, some rhinestones and banner with more rhinestones (of course!).


Happy Stamping,
