Stampin Up Ink to Stamp Technique card

Delightful Dahlia Day 2

I really had fun doing this card.  Todays Stampin Up Ink to Stamp Technique card is super fun to do and gives a different result every time.  What are you favourite colour combinations.  The Stampin Up ink to Stamp Technique Card gives you so many opportunities to combine all your favourite colour combinations.

Stampin Up Ink to Stamp Technique Card

I am loving the new 2015/17 In Colours – and here have combined the gorgeous Delightful Dijon ……. (such a lovely mustard colour) and the beautiful Watermelon Wonder …… (a stunning Pink/Peach colour.  I have added in a little bit of Tip Top Taupe …… (again one of the new 2015/17 colours.)

To create the Stampin up Ink to Stamp Technique card I have matted Delightful Dijon and Very Vanilla.  On the top Very Vanilla layer I stamped my images.

To create this subtle inked image I have used the Stampin Write Markers to colour straight onto the red rubber stamp.  Starting with tip top taupe on the edges I then added the Watermelon Wonder in varying degrees before  finally using delightful dijon in the middle.

The sentiment was stamped directly using the ink pad Watermelon Wonder and stamped over the top of the subtle image.

Here’s my supplies.

Stampin Up Double Butterflies

Hello peeps


Have you been enjoying the butterfly basics cards I have shown this week. Todays card, Stampin Up Double Butterflies is something a little bit different.  Its an A5 card, and I have used Island Indigo, Melon Mambo, and So Saffron.  I cut two butterflies using the butterfly thinnest dies and then stamped the front piece of the card.  I left the butterflies plain, but then covered them with with dazzling diamonds to give them sparkle.stampin up double butterflies

My cardbase is made from the lovely watermelon wonder cardstock.  I have then added Daffodil Delight embossed card.  Can you see that super cute embossing.  Yep it’s butterflies.  How cute it that.  Its one of the new ones from the new 2015/16 annual catalogue.

I punched out a watermelon wonder elegant butterfly and a cucumber crush one. Then split the cucumber crush one in half and layered it behind the watermelon one to create the layered look.  I took the petit petals punch and punched out 3 watermelon wonder flowers and then the new Tree Builder Punch and punched out 3 tiny daffodil delight flowers.

I have stamped the cowslip from the butterfly basics stamp set  twice and then coloured them.  Each was fussy cut and then layered onto the card front.  I stamped the lovely sentiment using the stamp set I think you’re lovely stamp set.

Stampin Up Butterfly Basics Back to Black

Hi guys

Stampin Up Butterfly Basics Back to Black


Hello lovelies.

We gone a little bit retro and vintage today with my Stampin Up Butterfly Basics Back to Black card.

Stampin Up Butterfly Basics Back to Black


Taking very vanilla cardstock I have created my card base, gently sponged the edges with crumb cake and have then added some similarly distressed Typeset DSP.

I have added a black matt layer and then stamped onto a piece of very vanilla cardstock using Tip Top Taupe, Crumb Cake and Basic Black using lots of the stamps from Stampin Up Butterfly Basics stamp set.   I have triple stamped the fern to give lighter shades of black and depth to the card.

Lastly I cut three small typeset DSP butterflies using the small butterfly frame lit, I have then cut a medium butterfly using the framelits in basic black.  These have been layered and shaped to give the effect of floating wings and finished with some basic jewels.

I have then attached this to the front of the card using glue dots.  Perfect.

My Stampin Class ladies voted this their favourite card in the card class and have all since cased it.  Its so simple to create yet so effective to look at.

Stampin Up Butterfly Basics Oval Frames

Hey Hey Everyone.


Stampin Up Butterfly Basics Oval Frames is day day 3 of my Stampin Up Butterfly Basics series.   Today I have combined it with Oval Frames and the new Brick wall embossing folder, and the itty bitty butterfly punch.


Stampin Up Butterfly Basics Oval Frames


The base of my card is the lovely Old Olive.  One of my go to colours.  It goes with so many of our colours and always looks good.  To create my wall I have used Daffodil Delight and the new Brick Wall embossing folder.  I just love this folder, it gives such a great background and I have lots of ideas that I want to try with it.

I used two of my oval framelits to create the old olive frame.  I then stamped the gorgeous “cowslip” from the Butterfly Basics stamp set and used my Stamp ‘n’ Write markets and my blender pens to colour this image.

I then stamped the sentiment and the itty bitty butterflies (Again from the Butterfly basics Stamp Set) I punched these out and then punched out the sentiments using my  oval punches.

All the bits were layered and stuck using tombow and dimensionals.  I love how clean and fresh the colours are together.  What a lovely bright vibrant card to have on your mantle shelf.





Morning lovelies.


Sometimes its nice to create something clean and simple (CAS).  And todays card Stampin Up Stained Glass Butterfly is just one of those cards.  Beautiful yet, clean and uncluttered, with just the right amount of pizzazz.

I wanted to show you how amazing the framelits are that match the set and how they can be used as a focal point on your card.

Stampin Up Stained Glass Butterfly

This card uses the Stained Glass technique which is so simple to do.  Using Sponge daubers cover a piece of cardstock with colours of your choice.  This piece of card needs to be slightly bigger than the aperture you are going to cut in your top layer.

I cut my butterfly from a white pice of cardstock.  I then stamped the two daffodil delight lines using the Butterfly Basics stamp set in daffodil delight.  I have used both the die cut and the cardstock it was cut from.  By placing the coloured stained glass behind the front bit and then putting the butterfly back into its aperture.

All the items used to make this clean and simple Stampin Up Stained Glass Butterfly card can be purchased through my online shop, simply by clicking the link in the sidebar.

Easily Done Stampin Up Butterfly Basics

Hey folks,


So this is the first of my 6 days of Butterfly Basics.  Easily done Stampin Up Butterfly Basics is a great easel card and is so quick and simple to do, but oh so effective.

Who wouldn’t want to receive this gorgeous card with a beautiful floating multi coloured butterfly floating on the front.

I love the colours in this card, it reminds me of long hot summer days, walking my dogs through the meadows.

The wide selection of stamps in this stamp set makes collage backgrounds for your cards super easy, as everything co-ordinates perfectly.  The lovely long ferns, cute postmarks and the pretty little flowers are just some of the ones I used today.  Not to mention the cute sentiments.  It really is a must have set.

I created my easel base using whisper white cardstock, then stamped with Pear Pizzaz, Melon mambo, daffodil delight, and tip top taupe.  The butterfly was cut using the matching framelits.  (Whats more you can purchase the stamps and the framelits as a bundle and save 15% – it just gets better and better)

After cutting my butterfly I used sponge daubers and the same colours to create the multi coloured effect on the butterfly.

I really enjoyed creating this card and the ladies in my monthly classes all enjoyed creating this one.

Pop back again to see the other cards I have created using this versatile stamp set.





Hiya everyone


So today is the final of the five cards I have created recently using the Classic Guy Greetings from Stampin Up.  I am so in love with this set…. it solves so many problems when it come to having to make male cards.  There is a sentiment and image for every occasion.  Whats more the sentiments also lend themselves to other stamp sets as well, so you need never be stuck for a sentiment for a male card again.

guy car fathers day june

Today’s card is very vanilla and has been cut at 11 1/2″ x 5 3/4″  and then folded in half.  I then added Typeset DSP which had been distressed around the edges using crumb cake ink and our daubers.  This really does give a super soft effect and make the paper pop.

Again using very vanilla cardstock I stamped my image and have mounted it behind the polaroid frame I created using another piece of cardstock and my square framelits.  Before mounting on the card I stamped the Sentiment “To a Classic” on the front and then distress all the edges with the sponge daubers and crumb cake ink.

The banner was stamped and trimmed with the snips as before, and again has been inked using the sponge daubers.  I added three layers of ribbon, burlap, chevron and linen to create the flag effect under the banner.

Lastly I created a matching  envelope from the DSP to complement my card.

I hope you have enjoyed seeing these five creations as much as I have enjoyed making them.  Don’t forget to leave your comments I love hearing what you think.

Check back again for 5 days of Butterfly Basics.  So pretty and girly, I just know that your gonna love it.

Blue Shoes with Stampin UP Guy Greetings

Hey guys,


So are you loving the other cards in this series of cards.  I have been having great fun using the Guy Greetings stamp set from Stampin Up.  Today’s card is Blue Shoes and has been made using the Stampin Up Guy Greetings stamp set.

I have changed the colours again and this time have used pool party.  I used the gorgeous large dots embossing folder to create the background.  Isn’t this just too cute.
blue shoes with Stampin Up Guy Greetings

The base of my card is very vanilla and I have stamped the shoes directly onto the inside of the card.  The front was matted and layered.  The shoes were stamped in a line using my Stampa -ma – jig.  This is a great tool for being able to line up stamped images and get them exactly where I need them to be.

I also used it put the sentiment onto the top of the shoes.

The little banner sentiment was stamped and then I used the snips to cut the banner ends into it.  The edges of the matting and layering have been distressed with the same colour ink to give definition to the card.

This would make a great birthday card for the fashionista male in your household.
