Here is a clean and simple project using some of the new In-Colours for 2016-18 while we wait!


I am really pleased with how simple this is – I have teamed Emerald Envy (NEW COLOUR) card stock with Whisper White and Sweet Sugar Plum(NEW COLOUR) – this is fast becoming a new favourite! I used the same colours in ink pads. The stamp sets are Balloon Celebration and Layering Loveliness (NEW STAMP SET), both of which can be found in the new Annual Catalogue.

Now I like simple cards, but sometimes you need a little bit more. So over the next few days, whilst I am waiting for my new products to arrive, I am going to show you how I upscale my simple projects with a few tips, techniques and accessories. There are definitely some NEW and exciting accessories –  which can be found in the new Annual Catalogue and can be viewed here  – I really hope you will pop back and see how it is going…

Until next time, remember to stamp your place in the world!

Ok – a Valentines Tutorial…

I will list the products I have used at the end….

1. I took a piece of 12 x 12 Whisper White card stock and cut it to 6 x 12 then scored at the 6 inch mark folding it to make my card base.

2. I then cut a piece of Real Red card 6′ x 2 1/4′.  I embossed this using the Happy Heart embossing folder.


3. Then using the Chalk Board cardstock I punched out 6 hearts – my punch is the old heart punch but there is a gorgeous new one which I will give you details of below. I also used some old DSP which has red glitter polka dots on.


4. The DSP hearts I folded in half but the Chalk Board ones are sturdier so I used my Scoreboard to score them down the middle before folding them and glueing them together with Tombow wet glue – this has to be the BEST wet glue on the market – you get a minute or so to maneuvre your card around into place before it grabs and holds firm! Once these were glued and folded I popped them under a punch while they dried.IMG_0013 IMG_0014

5. Taking my Stamp a Majig, my photopolymer stampset Hello Life and Basic Black ink pad, I then stamped onto the polysheet, making sure to line my stampblock right into the corner of my Stamp a Majig.  I then lined this up onto my card base.

6. I stamped the ‘Love’  and heart on a line from Hello Life and ‘You’ and ‘So Much’ from Crazy About You.  I really love the photopolymer stamps, they are so easy to position and get just right.  To get the red heart I inked up the whole image then carefully wiped away the Basic Black ink from the heart. I then used my Real Red Stampin’ Write marker to ‘ink’ up the heart just before stamping on my card.


Once this was all done, I assembled my card….I attached the embossed, Real Red strip with the hearts, glued on my 3d hearts and added a little sparkle to the tiny red heart.  And here is the finished card…..
