I’m not only a papercraft, but a lover of many other crafts!!  One of my all time favourites is cross stitch so I was excited to see the Cross Stitch Christmas stamp set.

Here the latest cross stitch that I finished earlier this year.

bec-cross-stitch

Using my Stamparatus, I stamped the 3 trees in Shaded Spruce, Granny Apple Green and Real Red.  It does take a little bit of practice to get the stamps lined up nicely.   I cut it out with an Oval Stitched Shape framelits and then a crumb cake oval.

I embossed the Granny Apple Green with the Quilt Top embossing folder.  Don’t you just love this folder!

I stamped the sentiment in Shaded Spruce and punched it out with the Classic Label punch.  I added a piece of Polka Dot ribbon and Real Red Solid Ribbon.

I just love Christmas!!!  I can’t wait to get into making Christmas cards!

Head on over to visit Lou and check out her gorgeous project!

Colour Your Season

esad colour hop bannerI’m excited to be a part of the ESAD Colour Your Season blog hop tonight.  This bundle is just so lovely but it’s only available for the month of August.

esad colour hop info

You may have come from Fi Cobbin, or starting here with me.

I am starting to get in the Christmas spirit so I decided to highlight the lovely holly wreath and use my new Real Red Stampin’ Blends.  (New colours are coming in the 2018 Holiday Catalogue!!)

I just love the Stitched Seasons framelits and the double stitching.  I cut out a piece using the Under the Mistletoe DSP and then decide that I would make two cards and use the opposite pieces.  I also used my favourite Subtles embossing folder!

So there are 10 amazing designer series papers on sale this month.  When you buy 3 packs, you’ll get one for free!!  Check them out here.

To help you decide which papers you NEED, I’ve got a few cards to help you make up your mind.  I just received the Darling Label Punch Box which is stunning!  I love the tin in comes in.

My first card uses the Garden Impressions dsp.  I love how bright and cheerful the paper is.  I also used my new favourite embossing folder, Subtle.  You’ll be seeing it often!

esad-dsp-bec-1The Under the Mistletoe DSP is in my favourite Christmas colours of Real Red and Old Olive.  And again, there’s my favourite embossing folder!

The Petal Promenade DSP is absolutely gorgeous!!  I have to admit that this was a hard paper to cut.

Then I got a bit excited and forgot that the sale doesn’t include the specialty papers.  So here are a couple of extra cards using the Share What You Love Specialty DSP and Tea Room Specialty DSP.

It’s my lovely friend from Western Australia, Kelly Kent’s Birthday!!  She is having a couple of blog hops to celebrate and I’m so excited to be a part of it!

I’ve also used one of the fabulous tutorials by Bronwyn Eastley, which you can purchase here.  It’s the Tri-Fold Window Card which is such a wow card!

I used the Layered oval Framelits to cut out the centres of the card.  And have you noticed the colour of the cardstock!!  Yes, it’s Mint Macaron making a come back in the Colour Revamp!!  I love this colour and am so glad to be able to play with it again. Now when I created my card, I didn’t have the mint macaron ink pad so I just used a versa mark ink pad to create a tone on tone look.   Oh and check out the colour of my ink, it’s the new Grapefruit Grove!

And isn’t the Share What you Love Specialty DSP just beautiful!  There are 4 sheets of each of pattern of the DSP and many of them have a pearly finish to them.  So pretty!!

I also added half a pearlized doily and the new Rich Razzleberry velvet ribbon.  Love velvet ribbons!

ESAD Holiday Catalogue Hop

I’m so excited to be a part of the ESAD 2017 Holiday Catalogue blog hop!  And to be sharing a couple of my favourite Holiday projects with you!

So you might be starting the hop with me, or have come from the talented Ellen Woodbridge.  Just make sure you keep following the next button to see all the amazing inspiration from the Holiday Catalogue.

There are lots of fabulous stamp sets and products in this catalogue!!  I decided to create my first project using the Good Tidings stamp set.

I started off with using the Ruffled Dynamic Textured Impressions embossing folder which I just received this week to add some texture to the background.  I then stamped up a piece using the holly stamps from the set.  I stamped off once using garden green for the solid image and then didn’t for the second image.

I then stamped the sentiment from the set in Cherry Cobbler and cut it out using the circle framelits.  I also did a silver foil circle and a scalloped circle in Cherry Cobbler.  And wait for it, I USED washi tape!!  I used the new Year of Cheer Specialty washi tape (which is so lovely!!) and a piece from the Basics Pack 2 washi tape.  I will get through my washi 2″ at a time!!

For my second card, I wanted to do something other than Christmas.  The Painted Harvest stamp set is beautiful!!  When I first saw it, I wasn’t convinced, but seeing many demonstrator samples over the past month has made me change my mind and fall in love with it.

I love that you can do so many different colour combinations for the flowers, however today, I’ve gone fairly traditional.  I started with the centre of the flower using Early Espresso.  I then used Daffodil Delight for the solid image and then used Pumpkin Pie for the next image and then did my favourite thing, fussy cutting.  NOT!

I stamped the leaves on the cardstock in Old Olive and the sentiment in Early Espresso.

This is a quick and easy card to re-create.

I hope you have enjoyed my cards tonight.  Next up is the amazing Mandy.

Make sure you leave me a comment and let me know what you think of my projects!  A list of the participants is below in case you get lost on the hop.

Happy Stamping

ESAD 2017-2018 Favourites Blog Hop

I’m so excited to be a part of the ESAD blog hop and sharing my favourites from the 2017-2018 Annual Catalogue with you.

I am loving all things flowers in the new catty and two of my favourite sets are the  Floral Statements stamp set and the Climbing Orchid stamp set.

For my first card, I silver embossed the Thanks stamp of the Floral Statements stamp set.  I have to tell you, this looks so pretty all on it’s own!  I then coloured it with the watercolour pencils.  I used Melon Mambo and Rich Razzleberry for the flowers and Old Olive for the greenery.  A little bit of blending with a blender pen, and voila!! it’s all done!  I then layered it up with Silver foil, Rich Razzleberry and an Old Olive base.  I just love the Old Olive Mini Chevron Ribbon, don’t you?

I just received my order of the new embossing paste and had to play with it straight away!  I used a small bit of paste and mixed it with Cherry cobbler and Cajun Craze re-inkers to make a brick wall using the decorative masks.  This stuff is so fun!!  And very addictive!!!

To create my orchids to climb up the wall, my clever friend, Bronwyn Eastley has created a number of orchid images to inspire us.  Click here to see her images.  I decided to use this one for my next card.

To create the stems, I used the stem from the Seasonal Layers thinlits, cut out two and stuck them together with my fine tip glue pen.  Whilst that was drying, I created the flowers using Rich Razzleberry and Daffodil Delight.  I also added some Stella to the DD flowers for a bit of bling.

I then created the sentiment using the Birthday Banners stamp set and the Bunch of Banners framelits.

I’m pretty happy with these two cards!!  Please leave me a comment and let me know if you do too!

Next up is the talented Sharon Dalton.

CTC55 – Catty Section – Into the Woods

I am really enjoying caseing the 2015 Holiday catalogue this year. There are so many lovely projects to choose from!!

This week at Caseing the Catty we are up to the Into the Woods section. I don’t have many of the sets in this section but one of my favourite sets of the whole catalogue is Lighthearted Leaves. I have seen so many lovely cards done using this set. So, of course, it was the stamp set of choice this week.

I am caseing the sponged card on page 44 of the catty.

ctc55 p44

This was such an easy card to make. I made a template of the leaf and then sponged with the lighter colour. This is a polymer set which made it so easy to stamp the second image over the top.

I’ve gone with a different colour theme for the two cards I made. One combo of Soft Sky and Marina Mist and the other Perfect Plum and Blackberry Bliss. I added a touch of bling by using some silver thread. I don’t seem to have the knack of artistically arranging twine or thread, but you get the idea!!

I used the washi tape punch and the thanks sentiment from the Cottage Greetings stamp set.

ctc55 Bec a

For the second card, I used the Lots of Labels framelits and trimmed it down and the happy birthday stamp from the Cottage Greetings set.

I’m very happy with the end result!! I might have to do this with some more sets!!

To continue on the hop, head on to Kathryn’s blog.
