Deer Gift Bag


Hello Everyone!  Today I have a gift bag created with some of the New October Release stamps and dies from Divinity Designs!  Someone said to me the other day that there was 11wks until Christmas.... CAN YOU BELIEVE THAT???  Time to get cracking on this season's cards and gift goodies!!

With that in mind, I've made a Christmas Gift Bag by using the Card Caddy and Gift Bag Dies to cut red cardstock.  I've glued the bag together and then used the Gift Bag Handles and Topper Dies to cut a piece of Rustic Christmas Paper for the decorative topper.  I've used the round die from Deer Ornament Stamp/Die Duo to cut a circle of Rustic Christmas Paper and then stamped the sentiment from the same set onto some kraft card.  I've die cut the sentiment with Pennant Flags and also cut a piece of brown paper from Rustic Christmas Paper.  From the same paper, I've die cut the deer from Deer Silhouette Die as well the bottom shape of the Pinecone.  I've then die cut the decorative pinecone out of brown card and the branches out of Rustic Christmas Paper using the new Pinecones and Pine Branches Dies.  I think you'll be seeing a lot of those pinecones and branches because they'll be super useful!

Stamps - Deer Ornament SDD (Divinity Designs)
Paper - DD Rustic Christmas Paper Pad, Red, Kraft, Brown
Ink - Icing on the Cake
Accessories - DD Dies: Deer Silhouette, Pinecones and Pine Branches, Deer Ornament, Pennant Flags, Card Caddy and Gift Bag, Gift Bag Handles and Topper

Sending Love


Hello Everyone!  Today I have another card using the latest offerings from Uniquely Creative!  This beautiful floral and matching die set is called Sending Love and there are so many things you can do with all the mix and match pieces!  This time I've decided to create a type of wreath/circle effect using two of the flowers and many of the leaves.

I've created my card with a base of blue, layering with white and a piece of paper from my stash that had a tiny amount of green.  Next I took a piece of white card, lightly airbrushed the edges with Copic G43 and then die cut an oval out of the middle so the patterned paper showed through.  I've die cut a piece of white using Chunky Lace Die and popped it under the bottom edge of the rectangle.  Then came the fun part of stamping all the flowers, leaves and sentiments from Sending Love off, colouring with Copics and diecutting with the matching Sending Love Dies.  I had a bit of a fiddle to get the look I wanted and then glued them into place.  Finally I've added the sentiment and popped it up on foam tape.

Stamps - Sending Love (Uniquely Creative)
Ink - Black, Grey, Sugar Plum, Green
Paper - Blue, White, X-press It Blending Card, Kaisercraft

Happy Birthday Birdie


Hello Everyone!!  Today I have another card using the new release by Uniquely Creative!  How fun is the birdie from Beautiful Bird!!  Once again I have made it into a Rosella adding the black dots on the wings, but this time coloured it as a Yellow Rosella.  Rosellas come in an abundance of different colours, the photo below was my inspiration, but of course this birdie could be any kind of parakeet, so let your imagination run wild! 


I've used a base of purple, layered with cream, saffron yellow and white stamped with yellow feathers (the feather stamps are from Beautiful Bird).  Next I used two rectangle dies to create a frame of saffron yellow card.  I've lined up the frame, stamped the sentiment from Beautiful Bird into place and then popped the frame up on foam tape.  Next I stamped the branches several times as well as the bird from Beautiful Bird and coloured with Copics and Prismacolor Pencils.  I've die cut the branches and bird using the matching Beautiful Bird Dies and attached as shown.  To finish I've accented with a few tiny Crystal Rhinestones.

Gift Tote


Hello Everyone!  This month the Divinity Divas have been given the Colour Combo Challenge of Red, Light Pink and Green.  These colours can be found in the Christmas Collection 2018 paper pad which is sooooo pretty!  I've decided it's not too early to make a start on Christmas gift boxes because the end of this year is going to be a little crazy in the Jones household!


I've created the base of this Tote Bag using a pink card stock and the Timeless Tote and Layers dies.  I've then used the Christmas Collection 2018 paper pad, white card and the Timeless Tote and Layers dies to decorate the panels.  To accent I've used Snow Crystals dies and white card and A Gift for You dies and pink card and attached as shown.  It's a quick, easy and fun project to make!  :)

Paper - Divinity Designs Christmas Collection 2018, Pink and White card

I've folded a piece of light blue card for the base.  The main layer is constructed of white card, a piece of watercolour blue patterned paper and topped with another piece of white card.  The top piece of white has been die cut with Interlocking Scribble Circles Die to give a little texture.  The flowers from Sending Love have been stamped in grey ink onto X-press It Blending Card and coloured with Copics.  I've then die cut them with the matching Sending Love Dies and glued as shown.  The sentiment from Sending Love has been stamped in black and trimmed to size and popped up on foam tape.  I've then popped the entire card front up on foam tape on the base card and finished with a few Crystal Rhinestones.

Beautiful Girl


Hello Everyone!  I have some super fun news that I've had to keep secret for a little while....this month I'm a guest designer for Uniquely Creative!  If you haven't heard of them before, Uniquely Creative is an Australian stamp and die company with some beautiful designs and I've been blessed to be ask to join the team this month!  You can follow all the latest news on the Uniquely Creative Blog!

Let me introduce you to Beautiful Bird!  My first reaction was "How CUTE is this bird"....my second reaction was...."What sort of bird is this and how do I colour it?".  I have to admit I'm a little bird-challenged and did a lot of research on this bird and in the end decided it must be a Rosella!


This bird didn't actually come with the spots on the wings, I drew them in with a Black .01 Copic Multiliner.  I've stamped and coloured the bird and leafy branches from Beautiful Bird with a large range of Copics and Prismacolor Pencils and then die cut with the matching Beautiful Bird Dies.  I've stamped the "Beautiful Girl" sentiment in pink ink and die cut with the matching die.  The other sentiment is also from Beautiful Bird and I've trimmed it with a paper trimmer.  Once I had all my pieces, I constructed the card using green for the base.  Next I've taken white card, die cut some feathers using Uniquely Creative Sketchy Feather Trio 1 Die set as well as a layer for the card.  I've placed the feather die cuts over the panel and airbrushed with Copic G43 to create my background.  Around this I've added pink ribbon and topped with a panel of pink and white (lightly airbrushed with Copic G43) and popped it up on foam tape.  I've glued all the images and sentiments as shown and finished with some Uniquely Creative Silver Pearls.  (Just a heads up, you can buy the stamps and dies as a bundle!)

Less is More Unless...


Hello Everyone!  Today the Divinity Divas are playing with the September Release and I've been using some of the awesome new Coffee themed goodies from Divinity Designs to create a fun Trifold Card.

I've used the Tri-fold Card and Layers die to cut some orange card for the base and the Latte Love paper for the layers.  I've used the 'coffee' die from Perk Up Stamp/Die Duo to cut some brown card and glued it into place.  I've also used Perk Up to stamp both the sentiments in brown ink onto cream card.  The first one I've cut using Sentiment Strips Dies, the other I've cut with Large Banner Dies.  To accent, I've used Cocoa and Coffee Stamp/Die Duos to cut out the mug, hearts, coffee and foam. 

I love that the Cocoa and Coffee set has all the mix and match pieces (and they can be used for other projects besides coffee themes too)!

August Colour Combo


Hello Everyone!  It's time for a new Diva Colour Challenge over on the Divinity Designs Blog!  This month our colours are Cranberry, Sunflower and Rust.


I've made a Thank You card today using the Thanks for Everything Stamp/Die Duo set.  I've die cut the 'Thanks' out of Fall Favorites Paper and cut another out of cream card and glued them together for strength and dimension.  I've die cut the cream circle using Pierced Circles and stamped the sentiment in the middle and attached the 'Thanks'.  I've matted this with Fall Favorites Paper cut with Circles and Scalloped Circles Dies.  The panel behind that is Follow the Son Paper with a layer of cream cut with Lattice Background and both panels cut with Rounded Rectangles.  The circle panel has been popped up on top of the lattice panel.  The base is cream topped with a plain and patterned layer from Fall Favorites Paper wrapped with two pieces of gold ribbon.  I've finished with pewter pearls in the corners.

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)

Woodland Carpet


Hello Everyone!  It's Day 2 of the Enchanted Garden Power Poppy Release!  Today we are showcasing another new clear stamp set called Woodland Carpet!  This beautiful set includes two larger images and three smaller images along with a range of sentiments which would be suitable for either masculine or feminine cards.


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!


 That's all from me today, pop back tomorrow for another amazing set to drool over!!  Thanks for visiting and hope you are inspired to stamp!!  :)

Creating with Divinity Designs


Hello Everyone!  Today the Divinity Divas are having a look back at the June Release!  I've made two projects today that I hope you'll enjoy!

My first project is a Cascade Card!  I've used the Cascade Fold Card with Layers to cut a blue base and the layers are cut using Notable Notes Paper.  I've then cut LOTS of black cut using Musical Notes Dies and attached them as shown.  Finally I've stamped the sentiment from Marvelous Things, die cut with Pennant Flags Dies and lightly airbrushed with Copic V09 Marker.

Stamps - Marvelous Things (Divinity Designs)
Ink - Black
Paper - DD Notable Notes Paper Pad, Blue, Black, White
Accessories - DD Dies: Cascade Fold Card with Layers, Musical Notes, Pennant Flags


My second project is a card with a green base topped with light blue card.  Next I've taken white card, cut and embossed with Sunburst Background Die.  While still in the die, I've airbrushed it with some Y17 Copic.  Across the bottom, I've added a piece of Pearl Deco Tape.  I've stamped the sentiment from Color My World in black and die cut with Scalloped Ovals and popped up on foam tape.  Next I've die cut the Globe using Globe and Stand Dies out of white card.  I've lightly coloured this with Copic.  Next I've cut another piece of white using Circles Dies and sponged blue ink on it and glued the two pieces together and popped it up on foam tape.  To finish I've embellished with clear rhinestones.

Divinity June Release!


Hello Everyone!  It's the beginning of a new month, so that means it's time for a new Divinity Designs Release!  This month there is a huge range of stamps and dies to choose from and I've been working with the new Cascade Fold Card with Layers Dies as well as the new Globe and Stand Die, Bubbles Stencil and Color My World Stamp set.

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.

Stamps - Aloha (DD)
Paper - Divnity Designs By The Shore, Cream, Green, White
Ink - Black
Accessories - Divinity Designs Dies: Bitty Blossoms, Ferns, Frangipani, Tropical Leaves, Cascade Fold Card with Layers, Grass Lawn, Bird of Paradise; Copics, Glue



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.
