Lasting Lily #WWYS 207

Happy Monday, it's that time of the week again, that's right I'm back with What Will You Stamp?  This week we are showcasing the stunning Lasting Lily Stamp set - yours FREE with a qualifying purchase during Sale-A-Bration


AND what's just as good as a FREE stamp set....coordinating framelits (available to purchase for a limited time from March 1-31st)



I love Calla lily's, I remember them growing near my bedroom window as a child, and they are still fond to my heart..... my white husky is even called Lily!

I applied ink to the stamp using a dauber, this made it easy to add the yellow stamen and blend the green into the bottom of the flower. The DistINKtive stamp design gives lovely detail and depth in colour, all you need to do is add ink for a gorgeous stamped image.



I randomly stamped the splatter image in the set to create the background, and added a little extra splash with an Aqua Painter. After cutting the images it was flower arrangement time, I find this so therapeutic, the satisfaction of a lovely arrangement is so rewarding. Lastly I added the sentiment, there are several to choose from in this set with a mixture of fonts.

Butterfly Sympathy

Where did that last week go? How is it Sunday already? I think I am having crafting withdrawals, so whilst a load of washing is doing it's thing I pulled together a quick card.




Whilst we don't like these occasions, it is good to have a Sympathy card on hand. I've incorporated the Well Written framelits into my design today, I really like the mix of stamped and die cut sentiments, it adds an element of interest. I did think about adding a die cut butterfly, but decided to keep things simple.



The background was super quick, #loveitchopit to the rescue with the Botanical Butterflys DSP. I based the Whisper White layer on the size of the diecut and coordinating stamped sentiment, found the perfect Rectangle Stitched Framelit, then all that was left was to stamp the butterfly and edges using the Beauty Abounds set.

Thanks for visiting today, I hope you enjoyed viewing my project. Stay tuned for more inspiration and tips this month. If you live in Australia and don't already have a demonstrator I'd love love to be yours.

Amazing Life #WWYS 206


I'm back again with another week of What Will You Stamp?  This week we are showcasing Amazing Life - a set that has a variety of sentiment perfect for many occasions.


Now, designs with flowers come naturally to me, but I fought my inner self and after several ideas, here's what I create for this weeks challenge:


The mixture of fonts on the 2 large sentiments in this set is just gorgeous, I opted for the cake sentiment to make me use the cake stamp instead of reverting to flowers - do you have images that your create with more easily than others too?



I still kept the design delicate, adding Petal Pink with Gold embossing - I stamped off the small stamp onto scrap before stamping the background to keep it subtle. The stamp set can also be purchased as a bundle with the AMAZING Rectangle Stitched Framelits (13 to choose from in the set) - these were straight on my list when I first saw the Occasions catalogue, and the get quite a workout in this household!

For an extra touch of bling I added some Champagne Simmer paint to Cake - both the word and image - here's a better picture with a light shining to show off the shimmer.

It's a Beautiful Day with Butterfly Beauty

It's been such a lovely weekend weather wise I haven't been in the craft room much - making the most of the first weekend in weeks to being able to go outside and not burn to a crisp in a matter of minutes.... so in honor of that I have created this card:



I wish things were this green, when out and about in the car yesterday most of the grass has suffered dreadfully with our recent heat waves, and has died off - here's hoping that the little rain we had early on Saturday perks it up and it starts growing green again.

After cutting the butterflies from the respective large butterfly dies, for something a little different I offset the 2 die cuts rather than layering directly on top of each other, it gives a really nice effect.



And the sentiment from Love what you do was perfect..... It's a beautiful day, and I've been enjoying :)

Ink: Petal Pink, Grapefruit Grove, Memento Black
Cardstock: Whisper White, Basic Black, Garden Green, Petal Pink, Grapefruit Grove
Embellishments: Frost White Shimmer Paint
