Not one, two, three - but four Climbing Orchid Cards

Hello stampers! 

With the holiday 2017 catalogue approaching soon, demonstrator blogs seem to be full of holiday themed projects. I have made a bunch of projects that are not holiday themed at all. We did just get a brand new catalogue in June and it's only August. I don't want to forget about all the beautiful stamp sets and products from it. So today, I have a bunch of cards to share that I made with one of my very LOVED sets from the Annual Catalogue called {Climbing Orchid}. 


I found myself constantly gravitating towards this stunning set and who doesn't love flowers? I have used this set so much, that some of the other sets that I ordered have remained untouched... I know! That won't last for long, I assure you. I went to some of my favourite colours and all in green tones. I absolutely love green flowers - I just find it so interesting to have a tone on tone flower. Maybe it's just me?! 



I used watercolour paper for all of my samples shared today. This first one I used Emerald Envy, Lemon Lime Twist and a splash of Berry Burst to the centers. Next, I went with Lemon Lime Twist and Old Olive, which compliment each other perfectly. Old Olive works perfectly for the shading on the lighter shade of green, Lemon Lime Twist. I did use a tiny bit of Berry Burst on this one too. It's funny, but when I first got the new in-colours I thought I wouldn't like the Berry Burst because it appears too pink - but it's more of a fushia. To my surprise (and some others), I find myself using it quite often.


For the next card I went back to the darker tones, using the same colours as the first. I water coloured the background and added a few sequins to step it up a bit.


Lastly, the same colours as the second Lemon Lime Twist and Old Olive. I decided to use an embossed background with the new {Ruffled Textured Impressions Embossing Folder}. I fussy cut out the orchid and added dimensionals for more depth. 


I think I used pretty much every stamp in this set on these four cards - it's surprising how much you can do with this set. You can send orchids for a fraction of the cost! I hope you have enjoyed peeking in on my blog today - I hope you have a beautiful day!

Carols of Christmas + Embossing Paste

Hello stampers! 

I have another holiday themed card to share today featuring {Carols of Christmas}. This set is available NOW for everyone to order! As a demo, I got to order mine last month and play a little with it. I decided to try out the {Embossing Paste} to see if it could pull off the look of snow... guess what? I think it's not bad.. not bad at all!! 


I must say that I do enjoy making holiday themed cards, even though we don't really celebrate it. And just look at that adorable little reindeer.... so stinkin' cute! 


I heat embossed the stamps with clear embossing powder and added some dapper denim ink to do a watercolour wash for the background. I hope you like it!

Oh So Eclectic... oh, hello friend

Hello stampers!

What a beautiful day we have today! I hear it's going to be a rain free weekend too... can't remember a 3 day stretch with no rain. For today, I have a fresh card to share. I say fresh because I used Lemon Lime Twist and it looks like a fresh colour. I made this card several months ago (I think May?) but forgot to share it with you. It was my very first card with this set (that I won at On Stage). 


I immediately had to stamp the leaf image - I love how it looks 3-D. I added a bit of Tranquil Tide stamping and cut out a flower to finish it off. I hope you like it, enjoy the sunshine!

Tickled Pink with Fabulous Flamingo!

Hello stampers!

Today I have a PINK card, well Sweet Sugarplum isn't technically a pink but it goes nicely together. I always seem to be low on baby themed cards, not sure why but I decided to get some done. I used the "fabulous" {fabulous flamingo} stamp set. A fellow demo in the same group as me is totally obsessed with flamingos and I decided that after studying it multiple times that I must have it too. They do seem to be trendy right now... they are popping up in all the stores. 


For my colours I went with the new in colour -powder pink, along with Flirty Flamingo ... very appropriate for stamping a flamingo eh?! and lastly Sweet Sugarplum. I stamped tone on tone for a more subtle muted look that simply stamping onto white card stock. 


You can see the nice selection of sentiments within the set, since I was on a mission to create baby cards I thought the tickled pink for you was perfectly fitting for my card. 


The sentiment is heat embossed with gold embossing powder... I am all about the gold embellishments and added touches, it's strange because I'm personally more of a silver girl. However, gold looks amazing with the pink tones! As a final detail I added a few of the {Iridescent Sequins} = love!! I think a mother to be would like this card, what do you think? Just a heads up... "we" demos got to see some sneak peeks of the upcoming Holiday catalogue and I pretty much NEED, hmmm... want. Some Christmas stuff and some fall and Halloween stuff (my fav!). I'll share as soon as I can. Have a great day!

Carols of Christmas - coming soon!

Hello stampers!

Starting August 1, 2017, the stunning new stamp set called {Carols of Christmas} and {Card Builder Framelits} with be available to order a month before the upcoming Holiday catalogue goes live. I love the large, bold font on the sentiments. Since I used the {Colour Theory DSP} with an ombre design, I did the same for the sentiment. It's very simple to do - just stamp with the full strength ink and stamp off once the bottom portion - and there you have it an ombre sentiment. 


I used the framelits to make a stencil and using a sponge dauber added some trees that way. I used marina mist and soft sky. I also added some {Embossing Paste} to add some fallen snow to the sponged trees. I hope you like it!

Daisy Delight and Colour Theory

Hello stampers!

I have another card to share featuring the {Daisy Delight} stamp set, daisy punch and colour theory DSP... can you tell I really like them? I went for an angled look with the DSP for this card and added a bit of gold foil to jazz it up a bit. 


I decided to flip the DSP so one piece has the colour gradation from dark to light and the other from light to dark. I love this paper and that it looks like paint swatches. I hope you like my card, have a fab day!

Happy Birthday with Colour Theory

Hello stampers! 

today's share, it's featuring the {Colour Theory DSP} and the {Happy Birthday Thinlit}. It was rather simple to create, and the paper looks amazing! I love this DSP.  


I started with a Rich Razzleberry card base to coordinate with the DSP. I diecut the happy birthday, but instead of just using it as is I decided to put the diecut back in leaving an outline of the diecut words. I hope you like my card. Have a great day!!
