Hearts Come Home CAS#240

The Hearts Come Home stamp set was one of the first items from the AW catalogue on my pre order list, I love the little houses (perfect for 'new home' cards too!), the wee flying Santa and his reindeers and the gorgeous sentiments! The matching dies are amazing as well and I've seen so many great fancy folds cards made with them, I've added one to my to do list this weekend :) Check out the Stamp and Die bundle to save 10%.

When I saw the CAS #240 Sketch I thought the stamp set would suit the sketch pretty well. I also knew that I wanted to use the Shimmery White cardstock as the base for the water colouring, it really adds a beautiful subtle shimmer to your projects.

As always, one of my cards wouldn't be complete with out some heat embossing 😁 I think gold and Night of Navy is such a classy colour combo for Christmas, what do you think?

Glitter embossed Good Wishes

My cards today use a couple of the new items from the Autumn/Winter catalogue along with the Emerald Envy & Real Red Embossing Powders which are currently in the Clearance Rack, they're reduced to £2.20 a pot and each pot lasts f.o.r.e.v.e.r so I'd grab them while you still can!

Stampin' Up! UK | Every Good Wish

I just adore the watercolour look, so I was delighted when I saw the Every Good Wish stamp set in the new seasonal, it has two watercolour effect sentiment stamps which lend themselves very well to some nice quick and easy Christmas cards. They are the perfect size for some 3"x3" cards and you'll also find new 3"x3" envelopes in the AW seasonal! What a time saver they'll be this Christmas!


You obviously lose a bit of the watercolour effect when using the glitter embossing powder but I think you cant really go wrong with a bit of sparkle at Christmas time!

Big on Happy Birthdays!

My card today features one of my favourite colour combos EVER for the Global Design Project #101, Night of Navy (my absolute favourite SU colour), Bermuda Bay and Flirty Flamingo.
I've got a few birthdays coming up so I knew that I wanted to make a birthday card for the challenge. I love the large stamps in the Big on Birthdays set (except the 'at least you're still pretty one 😲 what is that all about!?), they make such simple and stylish cards.

I am obsessed with water colouring just now and I cant get over how simple it is to do with the watercolour paper and the aqua brushes. The paper dries really quick so you can get on with making the card without too much down time. I don't have the Flirty Flamingo marker pen so I 'coloured' the flowers using my ink pad and sponge daubers.

Golden Wedding Anniversary - #GDP100

I knew right away which card I wanted to CASE when I saw the Design Teams projects at Global Design Project 100 | CASE the Designer Celebration. I am always drawn to beautifully simple cards with loads of white space. So Tanja Kolar's card was perfect! I needed a Golden Wedding anniversary card so I pulled out my much used (and much loved!) Large Number framelits dies and the gorgeous Gold Glimmer paper. A touch of gold embossing and plenty of white space and there you have it!
