Hello Everyone! Today I have a brand new digital image from Power Poppy! This one is called Aloe and Oranges is just the first of several new beautiful images that is being released this week! Just wait until you see all the amazing work from the Bloom Brigade, you are going to LOVE them believe me!
I've used a base of white card and layered with light green, topped with white card cut with Divine Eloquence Die. The next panel is X-press It Blending Card that I've printed the Aloe and Oranges on, coloured with Copics and then die cut with Decorative Labels 28. I've matted this with green die cut with Labels 28 and popped it all up on X-press It Foam Tape. Next I've stamped the sentiment from Tea in the Garden clear stamp set in Vintage Sepia ink and cut to size and popped up on foam tape.

Hello Everyone! Today I have a fun thank you card for you using some cute new goodies from Divinity Designs. I've used Butterfly Trio Dies, Floating Frame Die and Birthday Blooms Stamp/Die Duo.
I've used a base of Rich Razzleberry cut with A2 Portrait Card Base With Layer Die, with the inside panel of cream cut with the layer die from the same set. Next I've added a layer of River Rock cut with Matting Rectangle and Rustic Beauty paper cut with Floating Frame Die. I've taken the square from the Floating Frame Die set to cut through the River Rock and Razzleberry layers through to the inside. I've then stamped the flowers and leaves from Birthday Blooms Stamp/Die Duo (I've used a Misti to make sure I've got a good even coverage) and then die cut with the matching die. Next I've die cut the butterflies using Butterfly Trio Dies and brushed them with purple ink. I've popped the butterflies and the top flowers up on X-press It Foam Tape. To finish I've added the 'Thanks' using Wisteria Wonder card and the Thanks for Everything Stamp/Die Duo.

You Are My Lighthouse
Hello Everyone! Today we are showcasing the August Release by Divinity Designs! I am using the new stamp set called Shine Bright! I really like this adorable lighthouse and it also has a great combination of sentiments as well!
I've used a blue base and layered with River Rock. I've stamped the lighthouse and sentiment from Shine Bright in black onto X-press It Blending Card and applied layers of Distress Ink for the sky and sea and coloured the lighthouse with Copics. I've deliberately added touches of red and yellow down the side of the lighthouse for some reflected light. I've also added the red band around the middle because I felt I made the lighthouse a little top heavy with the red. I've framed this with America the Beautiful paper diecut with Pierced Frames. I felt it looked a bit dark, so I've added a frame of aqua using Lavish Layers. To finish I've added some River Rock Ribbon, some twine and a nautical charm.
Stamps - Shine Bright (Divinity Designs)
Ink - Black, Distress Inks: Broken China, Stormy Sky, Chipped Sapphire, Hickory Smoke, Peacock Feathers
Paper - Divinity Designs America the Beautiful, Blue, Aqua, River Rock
Accessories - Divinity Designs Dies: Pierced Frames, Lavish Layers; Copics, Spica Pen, River Rock Ribbon, Charm, Glue, Twine
For my second project, I've used the new Accordion Fold with Layers Die for the base card and layers. It is a loooooooong die at a length of 12 inches, so it is easier with a long platform. The layers are created using Beautiful Blooms paper. Around the middle I've used the Belly Band Die to cut a matching base and the Beautiful Blooms paper (solid) for the layers. I've decorated this with Vintage Labels 2 (airbrushed with R83 Copic) and topped with another diecut stamped with the sentiment from Shine Bright! I've then used Birthday Blooms Stamp/Die Duo to create all the flowers and leaves with a little extra help using my Misti to make sure of even inking!
Stamps - Shine Bright (sentiment), Birthday Blooms SDD (flowers/leaves)
Ink - Memento Angel Pink and New Sprout, Catherine Pooler It's a Girl
Paper - Divinity Designs Beautiful Blooms, Ivory, White
Accessories - Divinity Designs Dies: Accordion Fold with Layers, Belly Band, Vintage Labels 2
So who is the lighthouse in the storm of life that could use a card?? I can think of a couple that are always there to keep me grounded and shines light when I need it and I hope you do too! Make sure you check out Divinity Designs Blog, Facebook, Pinterest and Instagram for even more inspiration! Thanks for visiting today and hope you are inspired to stamp! :)

Hello Everyone! Today I have an eclipse card that I've made for my son's girlfriend. Happy Birthday Emily!! We hope that you have a wonderful, fun filled and very happy day - Best wishes from the Jones'!
Emily is 15 today and I tried to make something "not too over the top", but still classy! Apparently her favourite colour is blue (me too!!), so I went looking for some pretty, but teenager appropriate paper and came across this cute butterfly paper by Kaisercraft which I thought was perfect.
I've used the Slimline Card Base die for the light blue base, Slimline Rectangles for the dark blue layer and then Slimline Layering Rectangles for the Flutter Kaisercraft layer. I've taken the Letters E, M, I, L, Y and lay them on the patterned paper........they JUST fit!! WHEW!! I've held them in place with some removable tape and ran it through my Platinum die cut machine. I've then removed the letters from the paper and embossed them before popping them up on foam tape. To give just a little embellishing, I've added a couple of frangipani and fern die cuts.
Stamps - NONE
Ink - Memento Cantalope (flower centres)
Paper - Kaisercraft Flutter, Light Blue, Dark Blue, White, Green
Accessories - Divinity Designs Dies: Slimline Card Base, Slimline Rectangles, Slimline Layering Rectangles, E, M, I, L, Y, Frangipani, Ferns; Glue
That's all from me today, thanks for popping by and hope you are inspired to create!! :)
