Well, what can I say...I'm in Love! The Parisian Beauty Bundle is just amazing.... I have so many ideas running around in my head for this set it's crazy, I have partially completed projects all over my desk, I finally knuckled down and completed this one to share with you today.

This is my first attempt at a "DL" size card too, and I must say, I quite like the tall and skinny proportions of this card size. II wanted to use the new Champagne Rhinestones, so I I decided  on a Petal Pink and Crumb Cake colour combination.

The background was stamped using the Stamparatus, so easy to get consitant spacing by just moving the plate a notch, and of so effective. I repeat stamped the border under the main sentiment also using the Stamparatus, stamping the image onto a clear sheet, so that I could then align the image to stamp a continuous row the width of the card.

I had so much fun with the card that I kept inking up and created a matching envelope!

All Star Tutorial Blog Hop

Not only is today the monthly All Star Blog Hop, but it is also the launch day of Sale-A-Bration and the Mini Catalogue, wow what a busy day!

Do you ever get caught up in the detail, and before you know it hours have past and all you really wanted was a quick card? That is me all to often,but today card came together quickly and it's perfect for a masculine birthday event too!

Who would have thought with just a strip of Birthday Bonanza Designer Series paper, a sentiment from Bonanza Buddies (from the new Mini Catalogue) you could have a gorgeously masculine card in a jiffy!

I raised card front layer using some corrugated embossed cardstock for a little mow impact, the DSP is adhered directly to the card base, here's the side view

Lastly add some sequins to celebrate the happy day = card is complete!

Yes, it's a simple design, but less can be more on some days, hahaha (I don't have many of those days when it comes to card making).

Say it with Stars... Happy Birthday

I've had a crafty orientated day today in between weekend household chores, after delivering catalogues, and in between multiple loads of washing & cooking I played with part of my So Many Stars bundle..... being the Stitched Stars dies (23 in the set, spoiilt for choice, woot!)

These dies were perfect for the Global Design Project theme this week:

I started by stamping my birthday sentiment, then placed 3 of the star dies (the 3 smaller detailed stars) in position and ran through the Big Shot, then re-positioned and worked by way along the edge of the card, cutting 7 in total - perfect for a rainbow of colour.

I used 2 of the stitched stars to cut the colours, then placed them behind the card front and popped up on dimensionals, lastly mounting the card front on a Thick Whisper White card base, and there you have it, a fun Children's birthday card!

Peony Garden All Star Blog Hop

Happy Friday and welcome to the new look All Star Tutorial Team. Today we have more projects featuring the gorgeous Peony Garden Suite.

After a few crazy busy weeks at my not so 9 to 5 day job, some colour therapy was needed; I find colouring relaxes me and helps me unwind, how about you?

I used light & dark Highland Heather & Old Olive Stampin' Blends, then added Light Pool Party around the edge of the images - all the time using the Color Lifter to help blend the colours to my liking.

To finish I added a strip of Basic Black cardstock and some black ink splatters. Continue through the list below to see more creations from the design team:

All Star November 2019 Blog Hop

It's the first Friday of the month, so that means we are back with the All Star Tutorial Bundle Blog Hop. 

I enjoyed experimenting with watercolour for my tutorial, so I thought I will continue the theme into today's hop - it's a different card and technique, but features a watercolour element.

I must say, I was terrified to try this technique, but absolutely adore the outcome! It's really simple to do too - ink up your stamp (I've used the tree from Winter Woods), spritz your watercolor paper, spritz your inked image, then stamp... and then magic before your eyes, isn't it wonderful?

I'm normally into fine lines and details, but the randomness of the watercoloured tree blows my mind, I love it! I also double stamped the sentiment (from Merry Christmas to All), first in Cherry Cobbler, then in Golden Glitz, the shimmer is just gorgeous in real life (my photo doesn't give justice) - at first glance it tricks your eyes and may look a little blurry, but then …
