Heat Embossed Flower from Botanical Builder

Hi All

Today I am sharing a card I am entering to the CAS Colours & Sketches Challenge #184 using the Botanical Builder dies.


The embossed flower came about after creating brooches for our swaps with other demonstrators at a recent training event. Each layer were pressed on Versamark Pad, coated with the Clear Stampin' Emboss Powder.

For this card, I made the embossed flower using Night of Navy and Very Vanilla card stock and adding Copper Stampin' Emboss Powder in the centre.

Layering Circle framelits for the scalloped aperture and another was used as a stencil to achieve the Copper embossed circle border. Mint Macaron card embossed with Petal Burst Embossing Folder underneath.

We don't have the Copper Metallic Thread so I used natural fibres from our stash for the leaves. They were made using the same method as the flower then cut in to shape.

Hope you like the card and thank you for stopping by

Stampin' with Picture Perfect Bird

Hi All

Just wanted to share this card I created using the sketch from CC&S#182 with the bird stamp from Picture Perfect set.

The Picture Perfect stamp set consists of 4 images that uses the 2 Step Stamping technique which creates the photo realistic result. I used the Stamp-a-ma-jig to ensure each layer aligns perfectly.

Stamped on Very Vanilla card, fussy cut and mounted on Mint Macaron using the Layering Circles die. The colours used for the bird are, Tempting Turquoise, Island Indigo and Crumb Cake. I then used Real Red & Pumpkin Pie Stampin' Markers and a white pigment pen to add more colour to the body and eyes before coating most of the image with Gold Wink of Stella.

I used one of the leaf die from Botanical Builder, coloured with Garden Green, Old Olive, Real Red, Pumpkin Pie Stampin' Markers and Wink of Stella before folding over and sticking wire on the middle for extra support. The small flower die is also from the Botanical Builder set, coloured with Tempting Turquoise and Pumpkin Pie.

I am entering this card to the following challenges:
Glitter 'n' Sparkle #197 - Anything Goes
Craft Your Passion #321 - Anything Goes

Hope you like the card and thank you for stopping by

Stampin' with Picture Perfect for Challenges

Hi All

I created a floral card with the sentiment customised from the Crazy About You set. I have CASEd the layout, gold details and splatter effects from Steffi Helmschrott's card with the colours from CC&S

Stampin' the flower from Picture Perfect set on Very Vanilla card, I used 2nd generation technique to achieve 2 shades of the Elegant Eggplant, Soft Suede for the shadows and gold glitter to the highlights.

The flourish is from Hopeful Thoughts set, stamped with Cucumber Crush and the splatter effect is from Awesomely Artistic set stamped with Soft Suede. I added extra glitter dots on the card base and Gold Wink of Stella.

I felt that the background was too much so I used Whisper White Craft Stampin' Pad to help tone it back down which worked great.

Hope you like the card and thank you for stopping by

Class Projects and Samples

Hi All

Hope you're having a great weekend. I just wanted to share with you the 2 projects we made at our recent card making class in Basingstoke and the other samples we showed our attendees last Tuesday.

It was a challenging class as we made our own templates for future use before moving onto the actual projects but our ladies did very well.

We made a simple yet elegant card using the Love & Affection stamp set with the Layering Squares Framelits dies.

We then made this card using the Botanical Builder with the Wonderful Wreath Framelits dies. The die cuts are suspended on two supporting bar along the top and the bottom.

Here are other samples of our Diorama cards using various Stampin' Up! products which you can purchase from our ONLINE SHOP. The Stampin' Trimmer is a great tool for these kinds of cards as it allows you to cut and score.


Join us at our next class where we will be creating home decor on a canvas, more details to follow.

Thank you for stopping and happy stampin'
