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?

If you would like to place an order, click the order online button on the top right of my blog.  If you spend more than £20+ please use the monthly hostess code to receive a free thank you gift from me.  For every £45 you spend during saleabration you can choose a free item (does not include postage) and if your order is £150+ please do not use the monthly hostess code as you will receive stampin’ rewards to spend (which is money to spend on any Stampin’ Up! goods of your choice) and I will send a thank you gift as I really appreciate your custom.

Dragonfly Dreams Bee Card from Stampin’ Up!

This weeks challenge at the Global Design Project is to make a card featuring a winged creature! I love bumble bees. I fell in love with this chubby little chap as soon as I saw the Dragonfly dreams stamp set.

Dragonfly Dreams Bee Card

Isn’t the bee beeautiful?  I stamped onto watercolour paper which was cut out with our stitched framelit dies (which are still available but not in a catalogue, click the link in the items used at the bottom of this post if you wish to order) which I love as you get three shapes of dies in 3 sizes for each shape and 12 dies in total.

I then coloured with our marker pens and a blender pen and outlined him with a sahara sand marker.  The card base is made from Kraft cardstock and I stamped the bee in black ink.  It looks so striking on the kraft background.

I then finished it off with our gorgeous burlap ribbon and linen thread.

We would love you to play along this week at the Global Design Project and made something using the challenge outlined below.  Pop on over to the Global Design Project to see what the other design team members have made and also see the instructions on how to play along.
