Painted Seasons Love

As promised, today's card showcases some of the painted seasons designer series paper which I just love. There are so many bright and fun colours on one side and more muted patterns on the other which covers all tastes and needs! 

This card came together quickly, it's my go-to design when I am lacking a bit of mojo as it gets me creating again. And it shows off papers and embossing folders well. I was quickly able to mass produce a heap of cards in this design with the different papers in this pack. 

Do yourself a favour and make sure you get you hands on this bundle - it is only available to earn for free with a $180 (AUD) order.

New Sale-a-bration bundle - Painted Seasons

One of the new sale-a-bration items is this stunning bundle - Painted Seasons. The images are just stunning and being distinktive have a lovely shadow effect. The look like they have been shaded or stamped a few times but it's as simple as stamp and go!

Today's card was inspired by the talented Kylie Bertucci. She showcased a similar design with cards in a variety of colours which I simply fell in love with. A simple change of sentiment and this style of card is great for almost any occasion. ( I have since also seen a card similar to mine done by Vicki Boucher which is perhaps where I got the colour combo from :) )

For this card I have used flirty flamingo, smokey slate, petal pink, and mint macaron. The focal image has been winked with my wink of stella pen and the little sentiment comes from the Butterfly Gala stamp set.

I loved the look of the white mat around the stamped piece, it creates a lovely border. Thanks for that tip Kylie!

Today I have just showcased the stamp set but next time I will show you a sample with the Painted  Seasons designer series paper.

Remember this bundle can only be earned, you cannot purchase it, with a $180 order. And only while stocks last. Trust me, this set is a keeper!

Hi There - Flowering Desert

I've fallen hard for this cactus set called Flowering Desert. Today's card is simple but I just love these colours together - lovely lipstick and garden green. I was inspired by some cards made by Mary Fish for this layout. 

The added little flower makes the cactus more cute and less prickly! It is a punch from the bitty blooms punch pack. I added and glitter enamel dot.  

I have used the subtle embossing folder on the green mat as it reminds me of sand in the desert and it adds dimension to the card. 

I also added the old olive linen thread as a lasso and the cute sentiment - hi there!

Stampers Anonymous Team Blog Hop - Colour Challenge #1

Today I am blog hopping again with my talented Stampers Anonymous team. You have probably arrived from Sharon's blog - welcome!

This month's theme is a colour challenge based on the image below. 

Aren't they fun and bright? They make me smile :) 

So onto my card, I needed a thank you card for a dear friend (who just happens to love purple - how perfect is that?)

I was inspired by this card by a fellow demo called Anne Marie Hile. 

The card has quite a few elements to it but I loved just adding the little extra bits and pieces here and there as I felt it really added to the card and gave it more dimension. I am really pleased with the result! 


So using 2 of the colours in the challenge - highland heather and lemon lime twist I added layers to the base card. I love the look of the subtle embossing folder - it's a little bit hard to see in this photo but it gives a really beautiful linen look. Great when youwant a bit of tecture but not somethig too overwhelming. 

I used some new items - the Stitched Rectangles dies and the Well Said bundle. The Well Said bundle has a huge assortment of words that you can mix and match to say just about anything!

I used the Balmy Blue ink and patterned paper to add the third colour for the challenge. 

A touch of bling with the pearls and the glitter enamel dots gave the card a bit of sparkle.
