New Home stamp set from Stampin’ Up!

I have a new home card to share with you using the Flying Home stamp set from Stampin’ Up!

Flying Home from Stampin Up

When I saw this cute bird and babies in a nest I thought of ‘flying the nest’ so I felt it lends itself to a new home card.

I used the greetings from the Home Life stamp set which were perfect.

Here is how I made the card

  • Stamp the bird and nest onto whisper white in Black Memento Ink.
  • Colour the image with Stampin’ Blends (not shown in the photo below).
  • Punch out a circle using the 2″ circle punch and with the relief I framed the image but left some of the stamp overhanging the outside of the circle and drew a pencil line.
  • Cut around the over hanging parts of the image with scissors.
  • Position the image into the punch and made sure to have the overhang inside the base of the punch so it was not cut off.
  • Simply rub out the pencil line and mount onto a scallop circle from the layering circle framelits and a large smoky slate circle.

The cloud background was created with the Pattern Party Decorative Masks and Smoky Slate and Soft Sky Ink and a sponge.

The greeting from the Home Life stamp set was stamped on Basic Grey ink and I used my new stamparatus to position the greeting perfectly!  It is amazing, I cannot wait for you to get your hands on one!

I think I am addicted to the Stampin’ Blends, they give such an intense pop of colour.

Lots of Lavender FREE from Stampin’ Up!

I have a beautiful card to share with you using the Lots of Lavender Stamp set which is FREE when you place an order for £45+ from my online shop.

Lots of Lavender FREE from Stampin' Up!

I stamped the beautiful lavender stamp in Black Memento Ink and coloured it using the Stampin’ Blends.  I found a circle die and drew a pencil line so that some of the flower and stems would be outside the die cut shape.  I cut around the protruding pieces so that they would not be cut by the die.

I really wanted to add some dimension and texture on this card so I stamped and hand cut some more of the lavender foliage and fussy cut around it and raised it up with dimensionals.

A Linen thread bow adds some more texture.

Here are the Stampin’ Blends colours I used –

  • Pink Pirouette Dark
  • Rich Razzleberry Dark
  • Rich Razzleberry Light
  • Old Olive Light
  • Old Olive Dark

Lots of Lavender FREE from Stampin' Up

The amazing die cut word is from the Celebrate You Thinlit Dies cut in Basic Grey cardstock, which are also free during saleabration if you spend £90.  The word YOU and ARE SIMPLY are from the matching stamp set called Amazing You also free during saleabration with a £45 spend.

There are lots of lovely free items to get your hands on till the end of March, details of this fantastic promotion are shared in the Saleabration brochure on the right which will open as a pdf.

The embossing folder I used is called Quilt Top, isn’t it beautiful?

Party Pandas FREE from Stampin’ Up!

I inked up the adorable Party Pandas for our team meeting last night and created this card as a make and take.  The Party Panda stamp set is free during saleabration with any order of Stampin’ Up! products of £45+. I cased the idea for this card from Anni Karten.

Party Pandas from Stampin Up

How I created my Panda Card

  • Stamp the pandas onto whisper white cardstock and cut around each Panda.
  • Punch out three circles using the 1 3/4″ punch and used a sponge dauber to add a circle of ink.  You can simply add coloured circles from cardstock or patterned paper or create your own background.
  • Position the Pandas in each circle so they are at jaunty angles.
  • Stamp the greeting and add the balloon and a hand drawn line for the balloon string.
  • Two enamel dots added a little pompom on the birthday hat and the balloon, hat and heart were coloured with our Stampin’ Blends.
  • Pretty simple to make and would look great with a blue colour way too!Shop during Saleabration and get FREE itemsStampin Up Saleabration
