EIEIO!!!


Hello Everyone!  Today the Divinity Divas are going down to the farm!!  We have adorable farm animal stamps and awesome coordinating dies to create fun scenes!  A fun story, my first trip to the USA was when I was 19 and when I visited Iowa, I was amazed that the barns really were RED!!  We don't have red barns here in Australia, mostly they are plain wood, or these days metal!!  :)

For my first card, I've made a Center Step Card using Center Step Card Die and the matching Center Step Layers dies to create the card base out of brown card and green papers from Boho Bolds and Christmas 2017 papers.  Across the top I've used Cloud Borders and Baby Boy paper for the clouds.  Using Red, White, Black and Brown card and the Barn Dies, I've created the red barn.  I've created the fence using white card and the Farm Fence Die, the grass using the Grass Lawn Die and then finished the scene by stamping, colouring and diecutting the animals using Farm Friends Stamp Die Duos!

Stamps - Farm Friends SDD (Divinity Designs)
Paper - DD Boho Bolds, Christmas 2017 and Baby Boy Paper Pads; Red, White, Brown
Ink -Memento Tuxedo Black
Accessories - DD Dies: Barn, Farm Fence, Grass Lawn, Center Step Card, Center Step Layers, Cloud Borders; Copics


For my second card I've used a base of brown, layered with white card and then a blue and white spot paper from Boho Bolds.  I've also used the green paper from Boho Bolds and the Grass Lawn Die and Grass Hill Die for the grass accents.  I've made a wooden barn using Weathered Wood paper, Black and Brown card and the Barn Dies.  Then I've cut white card using Farm Fence Die to create the fence and filled the scene with the animals stamped, coloured and diecut using Farm Friends Stamp Die Duos.

Purple Birthday Gift Bag


Hello Everyone!  Today I have a Gift Bag that I made for a co-worker's birthday.  Callum's favourite colour is purple and favourite movie is Charlie and the Chocolate Factory - so I've tried to go with that sort of theme and of course filled the bag with chocolates!!  :)

For the bag base, I've cut purple card using the Card Caddy and Gift Bag Dies and then used the matching Gift Bag Handles and Topper to cut the Vintage Ephemera paper.  The panels on the front are created by cutting a layer of white with Snowflake Sky, a rectangle of brown and then some Boho Bolds paper cut with Rectangles Dies.  Across this I've added a strip of purple and cut his name using Long and Lean Letters out of brown and white.  Finally I've used the Wavy Words Stamp/Die Duos to create the banner along the top!

Birthday Gift Bag


Hello Everyone!  This month the Divinity Divas were challenged to a new colour combo which consists of Moss, Buttercream and Mauve.....such a pretty combo!  I've made my project feature more of the mauve and used a little amount of the other two colours as accents.  At my workplace, when a birthday comes along I usually make a little gift box or bag and pop in a little treat.....and also take balloons!  I had a lot of birthdays all really close together lately which made me think I really should make up some boxes and bags in preparation and be a little more organised!

I've created a gift bag using Card Caddy and Gift Bag dies to cut cream card and then glued all the pieces together.  I've then cut some pink paper from Shabby Pastels Paper Pad with Snowflake Sky Die for the front panel, topping with some moss green paper and spotted pink paper using the Shabby Pastels Paper Pad.  Next I've used Fancy Circles to cut cream card, topped with pink Shabby Pastels Paper also cut with Fancy Circles and topped again with spotted cream paper from the same paper collection and glued it to the front of the box.  Next I've stamped the sentiment from Wavy Words Stamp Die Duo in black onto cream card, die cut with the matching die and then airbrushed it with RV95 Copic while it was still in the die.  I've then popped this up on foam tape and finished with a few clear rhinestones.

All About Babies!


Hello Everyone!  It's a brand new month, so that means it's time for another new release from Divinity Designs!  This month it's all about BABIES!  Oh my gosh, this release is just so adorable you'll love it!!

I've made two projects for you today!  The first (above) is using the brand new Surprise Box Wide Dies, cutting some Blushing Bride card and then folding and gluing into place.  These dies also come with the matching layers dies which I've used to cut the new Baby Girl Paper Pad papers as shown. I've then die cut the word 'Baby' from Bless this Baby Stamp/Die Duo and the hearts using Layering Hearts Dies all using the same Baby Girl Paper Pad and attached as shown.  Finally I've stamped the clothesline, pegs and clothes from Baby Clothesline Stamp/Die Duo, onto X-press It Blending Card and coloured them with Copics and then die cut with the matching dies from the same set.  To have the clothesline coming up from the inside divider, I've used the matching card and the new Sentiment Strips Dies!  Now I'm sure that the Sentiment Strips are supposed to be used for small sentiments - but they also make PERFECT 'posts' for the clothesline!!  ;-)  I've also used the Bless this Baby stamps to stamp the 'Hello Sweet' sentiment and used the Sentiment Strips Dies to cut it out and then attached across the heart.  I've been hanging out for small strip dies for little sentiments, so I'm over the moon about this new addition to my collection!

Stamps - Bless this Baby Stamp Die Duo, Baby Clothesline Stamp Die Duo (Divinity Designs)
Ink - Memento Rich Cocoa
Paper - DD Baby Girl Paper Pad, Blushing Bride, White, X-press It Blending Card
Accessories - DD Dies: Surprise Box Wide, Layering Hearts, Sentiment Strips; Glue



My second project is a Center Step Card!  This time I've gone for the blues!  I've cut the dusty blue card using Center Step Card Die and then used the Center Step Layers Dies to cut the papers from Baby Boy Paper Pad.  I've used the same paper pad and Layering Hearts Dies to create the row of hearts across the bottom - popping them all up on foam tape.  Next I've used Double Stitched Rectangles Dies to create the frame out of Baby Boy paper and popped this up on foam tape.  I've cut the word 'Baby' from Bless This Baby out of Baby Boy paper and then another couple of times out of plain white card and glued them all together.  I thought since the frame was popped up that this would give the diecut a little more strength.  Before adding the word Baby, I've die cut the balloon out of the same paper using Balloons and Streamers Dies and attached as shown, then added the 'Baby' over the top.  I've used Bless This Baby sentiment stamps to add the 'It's A Boy'.

Stamps - Bless This Baby Stamp/Die Duo (Divinity Designs)
Ink - Versafine Black
Paper - DD Baby Boy Paper Pad, Dusty Blue Bazzill
Accessories - DD Dies: Center Step Card, Center Step Layers, Layering Hearts, Double Stitched Rectangles, Balloons and Streamers; X-press It Foam Tape

Summer Berries


Hello Everyone!  Today Power Poppy has another sneak peek for you called Summer Berries!  This set has three images and an array of fabby sentiments!


I started by stamping the image from Summer Berries onto X-press It Blending Card and colouring it with Copics and pencils.  I was trying for something a little different - I think I over thought the bird!  Birds are a challenge for me, so I googled an Australian Red-Browed Finch as inspiration.  I thought it would be interesting with it's red face and green wings......I think I need more work!  In going with my 'let's try something different idea' - I've taken a stencil and blending brush and used Scattered Straw ink to create a bit of a background.  I don't know......what do you think??

 
I've created the rest of the card with a red base, layer of brown, some Maja Designs paper and die cut the curve of the front with a border die.  I've created the top by cutting some brown card with Scalloped Rectangles die and trimmed to size and topped with a red ribbon.  Finally I've stamped the sentiment from Summer Berries added some enamel dots.

Stamps - Summer Berries (Power Poppy)
Ink - Memento Rich Cocoa, Catherine Pooler Icing on the Cake, Tim Holtz Scattered Straw
Paper - X-press It Blending card, Maja Designs Life in the Country Paper, Red, Brown

Strong and Beautiful


Hello Everyone!  It's Day 3 of the sneak peeks at Power Poppy!!  The latest addition to the Enchanted Garden collection is..... Strong and Beautiful.  And beautiful it is!!  With a stunning large floral arrangement complimented with two smaller accent pieces and a range of celebratory sentiments, this set is bound to be a go to!

http://powerpoppy.com/products/strong-and-beautiful

So I decided to focus on the two smaller accent images and give them a moment to shine.  I've die cut a rectangle of X-press It Blending Card with Double Stitched Rectangles Die and stamped the Hellebore (Lenten Rose) in Rich Cocoa ink and then masked it and stamped the fern frond all around it.  I've also used the sentiment from Strong and Beautiful and I've then coloured this panel with Copics and then added a little pencil as well.

My card is created with a base of green, topped with cream and some Golden Grove paper.  Around this is a piece of golden brown ribbon.  I've added another piece of Golden Grove paper and then added the diecut 'brickwall' made with kraft card and Texture 4 Die.  My coloured feature panel has been matted with kraft card and popped up on foam tape and I've finished with a few chocolate pearls.

Stamps - Strong and Beautiful (Power Poppy)
Ink - Memento Rich Cocoa, Catherine Pooler Icing on the Cake

I've created my card with a base of cream, layered with rust coloured card.  I've diecut some light brown card with Divine Eloquence and glued this on top of these layers.  Next I've stamped the image from Woodland Carpet in Rich Cocoa onto X-press It Blending Card and coloured with Copics.  I've diecut the coloured image with Labels 28 and finished off the sky and soil while it was still in the die and then attached it to the top of the card.  Finally I stamped the sentiment from Woodland Carpet onto white card die cut it and popped it up on foam tape.

Big Sexy Blooms!


Hello Everyone!  Have I got news for you!!  Power Poppy is releasing a new range of clear stamps called the Enchanted Garden Collection!  There are FIVE beautiful new sets to make you gasp and grab your favourite colouring medium and get creating!  Today we are sneak peeking Big Sexy Blooms which will be available (along with the other four sets) on July 1st.


Ever since I was little I've loved daisies and this bold background beauty of Gerbera Daisies speaks to my soul!  I've stamped Big Sexy Blooms in Icing on the Cake ink onto X-press It Blending Card and coloured with a whole lot of Copics.  I decided to let the background shine and accent it with a punched border......which I had nearly completed when my FAVOURITE border punch broke.  I honestly nearly cried.  SIGH!  So I started over with a different border punch to do the edge.  I've then added a layer of white and then trimmed my Big Sexy Blooms layer to size and wrapped a piece of white ribbon around it.  I've been a bit sneaky and added a sentiment from another new set - Strong and Beautiful - but you have to wait until Friday to hear all about that set!!  :)  I've stamped that also in Icing on the Cake ink, die cut with Pierced Circles and layered with Circles dies and popped it up on foam tape.

Stamps - Big Sexy Blooms, Strong and Beautiful (Power Poppy)
Ink - Catherine Pooler Icing on the Cake
Paper - X-press It Blending Card, White, Blue
Accesories - Divinity Designs Pierced Circles and Circles Dies, Blue Ribbon, Lattice Border Punch, X-press It Foam Tape

There's LOTS of inspiration for you today, so pop on by these blogs and see what the girls have been creating!

For my first card, I've used the amazing Cascade Fold Card with Layers Dies and combined them with a range of stamps and dies to create a tropical theme including - Aloha Stamps for the Bird of Paradise and sentiment in the front - Bird of Paradise is coloured with Copics and diecut with the matching Bird of Paradise Die.  Other dies include, Bitty Blossoms, Ferns, Frangipani and Tropical Leaves.

My second card features the new Globe and Stand Die, Bubbles Stencil and Color My World Stamp Set.  I actually started this with the Bubbles Layer, cutting the panel using Rectangles Dies, adding Weathered Wood Distress Ink and then placing the Bubbles Stencil over the top and applying Atelier Moulding Paste.  I've heat set the bubbles and then matted with white and green card and attaching some sheer ribbon and attached it to a dark blue base cut with Pierced Rectangles.  Next I've die cut the Globe and Stand out of brown and white card, colouring the continents of the globe with Copics.  To create the background, I've die cut the matching shape using Circles Dies and gave it a watercolour wash.  Next I've stamped the sentiment from Color My World and die cut with Pennant Flags and trimming to size.  I've finished by attaching to a white card base and embellishing with a few clear rhinestones.

Time for Graduation!

Hello Everyone!  This month Divinity Designs is all about Fathers Day and GRADUATION!!  I was SO EXCITED to see Graduation products coming out for May because my first born will be graduating Grade 12 this year - although here in Australia that means in November, so I will have plenty of time to create a range of things to celebrate this big occasion!

So what new goodies am I using today?  There are two new stamp sets with a Graduation theme and I have The Future!  I'm also using the new Grad Dies and Weathered Wood Paper Collection!


I guess because I have a son graduating, I aimed for a more masculine themed Graduation Card. I've used the Vintage Label Flip Fold with Layers for the base using black card and cut the Weathered Wood paper with the Layers Dies.  I've stamped the sentiments from The Future in the top and bottom corners.  I've used the largest Vintage Label die from the same set to cut a piece of silver for the front.  Then used a piece of white card, the next sized Vintage Label Die from the same set and then the Double Pierced Vintage Labels Die to cut the middle to create the frame for the front and the cut out piece for the middle. I've cut black card using the Grad Dies for the words on the front and cap in the middle (the tassel is cut of silver).  The numbers are cut using Long and Lean Numbers and the Apostrophe from Long and Lean Letters.  I've stamped the inside sentiment from The Future and then finished with a few black rhinestones.

Stamps - The Future (DD)
Ink - Black
Paper - Divinity Designs Weathered Wood, Black, Silver, White
Accessories - Divinity Designs Dies: Long and Lean Numbers, Long and Lean Letters (apostrophe), Vintage Label Flip Fold with Layers, Grad, Double Pierced Vintage Labels; Black Rhinestones
For my second project, I've made a Gift Card Holder!  I've used the Gift Card Holder Die to cut black card for the base, topped with some red card and then cut the decorative white panel using the filigree panel also from Gift Card Holder Die Set.  I've cut the Cap using Grad Dies out of black and gold card.  Next I've stamped the sentiment from The Future in black onto white card, die cut with Pennant Flags Dies and matted with black card cut with Double Stitched Pennant Flags.  Perfect for the little gift for the new Graduate!

A Sweet 15!


Hello Everyone!  Today I have a card for my niece Heidi who is turning 15 in a few days!  I love these new Long and Lean Letters and Long and Lean Numbers by Divinity Designs, they are just perfect for personalising and great for creating teen cards!

I've used a white base topped with aqua cut with Snowflake Sky, a layer of deep pink card and then Romantic Roses Paper cut with Rectangles Dies.  Next I've cut the name out of deep pink card using Long and Lean Letters and assembled them across the bottom.  (I love how you can fit a name across a vertical card because these letters are so skinny!)  I've added a piece of silver ribbon across the top and then cut a heart out of deep pink (I've used the die from Festive Favors here) and then the numbers out of white using Long and Lean Numbers.

I've used a neutral base and layered with medium pink and hot pink, topping that with some fun paper from the Beautiful Blooms Paper Pad.  I've added a strip of light gold paper across the middle.  I've cut a cream piece of card with Squares dies and matted with medium pink card cut with Scalloped Squares, adhered together and then used a smaller Sqaures die to cut the middle out to create a frame and added that to the middle.  I've then used Long and Lean Letters to cut the name out of medium pink card and glued them as shown.  Hope she likes it!

April Releases!


Hello Everyone!  Today the Divinity Divas are looking back at the Divinity Designs April Release.  There is such variety this month and I'm using the new stamp set Grandmother's Heart for my first project and  Long and Lean Letters for my second!

I've used a white card base by folding a piece of card in half and cut it with Scalloped Rectangles leaving the top fold uncut.  Next I've used the same die to cut a piece of pink paper from the Pretty Pink Peonies Collection and glued it neatly over the top.  I've layered with a piece of green card, white card cut with a smaller die from Scalloped Rectangles and topped with a patterned piece of Pretty Pink Peonies paper cut with Double Stitched Rectangles.  Around this I've attached two pieces of light green ribbon.  I've stamped the image and sentiment from Grandmother's Heart in black onto X-press It Blending Card and coloured the flower with Copics.  I've cut each out using two sizes of dies from Double Stitched Circles, popping the sentiment up on foam tape.  To finish I've added some pink rhinestones to the top corner.

I've used a base of green, a layer of cream cut with Pierced Rectangles which is layered with blue and green card.  On top of this is a panel of Vintage Ephemera paper cut with Rectangles Dies.  Next I've cut the balloon using Balloons and Streamers Dies out of cream and blue card and glued in place.  I've then cut the happy birthday using Happy Birthday Script and the 'CRAIG' using Long and Lean Letters all out of green card and glued as shown.

Hello Everyone!  Today I have a Center Step Card using the latest stamp set released by Divinity Designs called Grandmother's Heart.  This set has a floral image and a selection of sentiments for Mothers and Grandmothers......just in time for Mother's Day!  :)

I've used cream for my base and cut it with Center Step Card Die.  Next I've used the Center Step Layers to cut some Pretty Pink Peonies Collection paper.  I've used Scalloped Ovals to cut cream card for the next layer.  I've stamped the image from Grandmother's Heart in black onto X-press It Blending Card and coloured it with Copics.  I've kept part of the image outside the Ovals die and added a shim to prevent it cutting (but my Grand Calibur got pretty close I have to say!) and trimmed those leaves up.  I've stamped the sentiment also from Grandmother's Heart in black and then sponged some Antique Linen ink around the edges.  I've popped the oval panel up on foam tape.

Power Poppy Friday!


Hello Everyone!  It's time for another Power Poppy Friday and today is also a Weekend Stamp Steal for Artistic Bouquet and Rosé All Day digital!  So of course I whipped out my Artistic Bouquet clear set and got to work!  :)

I've stamped this big beauty of an image from Artistic Bouquet onto X-press It Blending Card and then die cut it with Pierced Rectangles Die and then set to colouring it all with Copics!  I always need lots of birthday cards at this time of year (well most times of the year really, but particularly in May and June), so I've used the Birthday Blessings sentiment, also from Artistic Bouquet.  I've matted this with white and put it on an aqua base and finished with a few rhinestones for a bit of sparkle!

April Release


Hello Everyone!  It's release time for Divinity Designs and I'm showcasing the new Long and Lean Numbers Dies.  These awesome number dies have a companion in the Long and Lean Letters Dies!  I love a good alpha set and to have the matching numbers is just too awesome for words!!  :)










Of course there is more to the new release than just these two sets and you can find all the latest goodies in the Divinity Designs Store!

I've made today's card with my nephew in mind who has a birthday coming up very soon!!  I kept the design fairly simple and masculine with a bit of a beachy theme since he lives quite close to the beach!

I've used a base of kraft card, layered with cream and topped with some By The Shore paper.  Across this I've added some mesh ribbon.  Next I've cut some blue card with Large Banner Dies and topped that with kraft cut with Pierced Circles and cream cut with Circles Dies.  Finally I've cut blue card using Long and Lean Numbers Dies.

You can find even more inspiration at these locations the Blog, Webpages, Samples GalleryFacebookPinterest and Instagram. Thanks for popping by and hope you are inspired to stamp!  :)

March Colour Challenge


Hello Everyone!  This month the Divinity Diva's have been given a colour combo of Yellow, Turquoise and Green to create a project!  I've used the new Divinity Designs Test Tube Treats Dies and matching Treat Tag Sentiments 2 sets to create mine for a fun gift!


I've used a base of yellow cut with Test Tube Treats Dies and layered with paper from Birthday Bash.  I've then created my focal piece using Turquoise card and Green card cut with Circles Dies and Yellow card cut with Scalloped Circles Dies.  Across the middle I've stamped the sentiment from Treat Tag Sentiments 2 in black and die cut using the matching die from Test Tube Treats Dies.  I've added some cute tiny chocolate freckles to the Large Test Tube and it's good to go!

Test Tube Treats


Hello Everyone!  Today I have some fun projects using some of the latest stamps and dies by Divinity Designs!!  These sweet treat ideas have been created using Divinity Designs new Test Tube Treats Dies and matching Test Tubes Large (there are shorter ones available if you prefer).

These come together in a snap, cutting some cream card with the Test Tube Treats Dies and then using the layering dies (which are part of the same set along with sentiment tags and a bow) to cut some Latte Love Paper.  I've stamped the sentiment from Treat Tag Sentiments 2, cut it with Circles Dies and matted with cream cut with Scalloped Circles Dies.  I've filled the Test Tubes Large
with some coffee - the perfect gift for a latte lover!

I've made another project today, this time using cream card cut with Test Tube Treats Dies and then created the layers using the same die set and the Spring Flowers Collection 2019 paper.  Now I did make a bow using the dies and then realised I had the large Test Tubes not the small ones so it's been obscured (sorry about that!).  I've filled the Test Tubes Large with some Crispy M&M's, stamped the sentiment from Treat Tag Sentiments 2 in black and cut it out with one of the dies from Test Tube Treats Dies and attached it with some twine.
