Strong and Beautiful Mother’s Day Card

Mother’s Day is approaching ( in just under a month’s time). So today I pulled out a favourite retiring stamp set (Strong and Beautiful) and paired it with a soon to be released new floral set (Colour and Contour). The layout of this card was inspired by the Hand Stamped Sentiments Challenge #362.

Some of the finer details that you may not be able to see in this photo are the Dainty Diamonds embossing on the Basic Black cardstock , the coating of Wink of Stella and the fact that the flower was stamped on Shimmery White cardstock. If you want all the details check out the video below.

Product List

In addition to these products I used some not yet released items ( Polished Pink Ink, Soft Succulent Ink, Colour and Contour Bundle and 2021-2023 In Colour Gems). You can grab these items on May 4th or contact me today to join my team and add these items to your Starter Kit now.

Sweet Silhouette

These beautiful (soon to be retiring) silhouette stamps and dies create quick and stunning cards.

The first card I created for the Spot Sketch Challenge #157. If you would like to see how I created the coloured background on the left check out my video below. I think this card could make a fabulous grad card or celebration of most life changes.

I then used some other pieces from this great bundle and some spare watercolour pieces ( because I never paint just one paper at a time!) to create a variation of this card.

The Sweet Silhouette dies and Silhouette Scenes stamp set will no longer be available after May 3rd. So if you love these grab them now! You can use the host code: BWWEEQGM, any order over $60 using this code will receive a little something special from me as a thank you.

Playful Alphabet Birthday Fishes Card

I love creating with these Playful Alphabet Dies. The ability to create my own sentiments (especially puns) makes me smile. Using the Adhesive Sheets on the back make creating with the letters so easy as well.

The little fish were created using the walking egg die from the out of catalogue Chick Dies set. I am so excited to be able to create this since my oldest (almost 16!) STILL loves his Goldfish Crackers.

To see exactly how I created this, check out my video on You Tube. Make sure to subscribe while you are there.

In the video I mentioned an upcoming FREE workshop on April 10th. You can join my Online Workshop page for monthly FREE workshops. https://www.facebook.com/groups/OnlineStampinWorkshopWithLeah

DAY 3 – STAMPIN THE RAINBOW

I will be live everyday this week ( Mar 14 – 20) at 10am (ish) to stamp with you. Each day I will be featuring a different colour and one great ordering special (see below). Today’s card is featuring the colours Crushed Curry and So Saffron, the Cute Fruit stamp set and the gorgeous Fine Art Floral DSP. I actually created 3 cards to show how we can step up our cards – go from simple stamping to slightly more avid.

The stamp set I am featuring is called Cute Fruit – it is found in the Beginner’s Brochure. The first card is just cardstock and ink – but I did use a masking technique ( you can watch the video below to see how).

To step it up I created the same card but added a DSP layer and some fussy cutting instead of masking.

Finally, we went a little bit further and added ribbon, embellishments and Dimensionals. Nothing too crazy – but all the small details make a huge difference.
