Meant to Be with #WWYS 204

Welcome to this weeks What Will You Stamp? showcase of the Meant to Be stamp set, new in the 2019 Occasions Catalogue, I can't wait to see what the rest of the team has created.
 Meant to Be by Stampin' Up!
When I first saw this set, not only did the beautiful font take my eye, but the coordinating framelits had me positively squealing with excitement, so I just had to include them in this weeks project.


You are spoilt for choice with sentiments in this set, I was going to do a Valentines theme card, but decided instead to make my card friend themed, after all we have friends that we just adore and love too. For a little bling I added shimmer paint behind the delicate hearts die cut, and some Artisan Pearls.


I love that there are not only hearts, but also a matching floral edge stamp in the set, and paired with the Be Mine frameits the possibility for projects is endless, below is another project I've created using this bundle.

Thinking of Botanical Butterflies | Crazy Crafters Blog Hop with Wendy Cranford

Welcome to our Crazy Crafters Blog hop with special guest Wendy Cranford for the USA. Wendy is a super talented crafter,  you may be familiar with her blog Luvin Stampin, it's full of amazing projects that are bound to inspire you.

As a Crazy Crafter, our task is to CASE (copy and selectively edit) one of Cathy's creations, I decided on the below card, I just adored the simple lay out.


Like Wendy, I've made use of the beautiful Botanical Butterfly Designer Series Paper - it's just gorgeous.... and can be yours FREE with a qualifying purchase during Sale-A-Bration, here's my Wendy inspired creation:



I was taken by the delicate detail of this imagery, I paired up with stitched scallop edge from the Be Mine framelits - I can't believe that I missed this framelit when I first looked at the set - I must have been too excited by all the hearts. To add height to my scalloped layers I added a layer of corrugated embossed cardstock.



The sentiment is from Climbing Roses, and I adore how it looks with this DSP, and lastly I added just a touch of bling with Rhinestone jewels - I must say, I'm super happy with my CASE today, be sure Take your time to hop all the way around our Crazy Crafters hop to see all the incredible creations inspired by Wendy, and if you have a chance please leave a comment, we love receiving comments!

Ink It! Stamp It! with Wonderful Romance


Welcome this years first Ink It Stamp It! blog hop, and we have lots of Occasions and Sale-a-Bration inspired creations to show you. Being the Libran I am, I had a total change of mind, from the Well Said Bundle to the actual creation using Wonderful Romance..... I got so carried away with colouring when using Wonderful Romance the other day I just couldn't stop!


I used white embossing powder then water coloured using an Aqua Painter - remember less is more when water colouring, you call always add more ink to get a darker tone, but you can't really take the ink back.  I applied this process with the Mint Macaron leave, adding 2 -3 layers of colour to achieve the depth I was happy with.



For the card base I use the Crackle Paint background stamp, I wished I had stamped it off once as the contrast on white was a litlte stark for the water colour image, so I sponged some Crumb Cake for added tone on tone, and I'm really happy with how it finished up. Lastly I added a bow with Linen Thread.  TIP - if you are "bow challenged" start out using this or twine as they are both very forgiving, and as you gain confidence move onto ribbon.

Thanks so much for joining us today. We hope you'll join us again next month to see our projects & tips. You are currently visiting Sue Vine at Miss Pinks Craft Spot, to keep hopping around see the list below to see who is up next.

Beauty Abounds at #GDP173


What do you do when you have a day off work and it turns out to be an absolute scorcher of a day... park yourself under an air conditioning duct and a find a card challenge!  That's what I did this morning, and I couldn't pass up the colour challenge on offer the Global Design Project - after all pastels are my "go to" colours (and pink of course!)

 #GDP173

I've been itching to try out the Bokeh dots in the Beauty abounds stamp set, so I took this colour palette and tried them out, and I love the result!


I wasn't in the mood for fussy cutting, so instead of stamping butterflies I used the beautiful Butterfly Elements that I earned as a Sale-a-Bration FREEBIE. There is an amazing selection of butterflies, flowers and leaves - 84 pressed wood elements in total in the pack.


I also couldn't resist using the Rectangle Stitched framelits, I am soooo loving having these rectangles to create layers and frames, and just had to add a little bling too - Iridescent sequins are great to have on hand, and go a long way!

Ink: Petal Pink, So Saffron, Soft Sea Foam
Cardstock: Whisper White, Petal Pink, Soft Sea Foam
Embellishments: Iridescent Sequin Assortment, Butterfly Elements (FREE with qualifying purchase during Sale-a-Bration)
