Dauber Colouring – a new way to colour

I dont know about you, but I love to colour.  Its a great way to destress and relax.  I love finding new ways to use our products and dauber colouring is a new way to colour using inks and daubers.

Dauber Colouring – how do I do that?

Its a really easy technique to master so whether you have been stamping for a long time or are just starting out this is a great one for everyone.

Creating this gorgeous card is fun and it has lots of different elements to create a real wow card for the recipient.


Stamp your flowers from the Petal Palette set in Archival Black ink.   Leave to dry.

Whilst waiting for that to dry take your small whisper white piece of cardstock and stamp top and bottom with the dots (again from the petal palette set) in Lemon Lime Twist.

On a scrap of whisper white stamp the bird in Archival Black in and use the corresponding dies to cut the bird out.

Cut out two sets of the flowers from Berry Burst Cardstock and stamp with versamark.   Use clear embossing power and heat emboss.

Lemon Lime twist Sentiment.

Lemon Lime twist is the base for the sentiment.  Stamp your chosen sentiment in versamark and heat emboss with black embossing powder.   Cut the sentiment out using matching dies.

Using two daubers, and the lemon lime twist ink pad and berry burst ink pad, ink up your dauber and ink up the flowers and leaves you stamped in a dabbing motion, varying the pressure and going over some areas to create different depths of colour in your stamping.

Please this layer onto your Lemon Lime twist matt, and in turn stick that to your card base.

Ribbon edge

Using the ribbon edge punch, and lemon lime twist punch out a section as long as your top white layer.

Stick down the black DSP onto your stamped and daubed image.  Next add the ribbon edge you have punched out.  Lastly add the top matt layer, adding the berry burst heat embossed flowers and bird.

Lastly add your sentiment.

Stampin up birds on a branch








Hi everyone.

Stampin up birds on a branch

So it seems ages since I posted, but so much has been happening…… I have lots to share with you over the next few weeks.  But today I want to share these Stampin up birds on a branch. They are just too cute.





I just love this colour combination.  Hello  Honey, Lost Lagoon and Whisper White.  All to create this cute card using our Ronald MacDonald Charity Set, Sprinkles of Life.  Super cute.

I hope this inspires you to create Stampin up birds on a branch in your own colour scheme.



Stampin Up Emboss Resist Leaves




Hey Peeps,


Stampin Up Emboss Resist Leaves


So todays card was inspired by my wreath from yesterday.  I loved the leaves and had a few left over, so I wanted to create a special card.  Stampin Up Emboss Resist Leaves was born.  I have used emboss resist techniques on this as well as stamped and die cut leaves.


Stampin Up Emboss Resist Leaves


My card base is Delightful Dijon, topped with Chocolate Chip and a very vanilla matt.  I stamped the Vintage Leaves onto my very vanilla in versa mark and then sprinkled with Cherry Cobbler embossing powder.  This is now retired but black would look amazing effective.  A few minutes with the heat tool and I had the most gorgeous leaves.

Out came the sponges, cajun craze, chocolate chip, and delightful dijon, and I got to inking up my very vanilla cardstock.

Once done I added the spray of diecut leaves and the cute little wooden heart embellishment.



Stampin Up Emboss Resist LeavesOf course I finished off the inside using the leaf stamps in the same colours and inking the edges.  Super Cute and super cool.  Love it.




Stampin Up Bohemian Dsp meets Wetlands

Hello my lovelies,

Stampin Up Bohemian Dsp meets Wetlands

Some time back I showed you some lovely cards and a bag made using the bohemian dap from Stampin Up.  Stampin Up Bohemian Dsp meets Wetlands is a continuation of this.  I love the colours in it, and it works so well for a masculine card.

Here’s the envelope first.  This is for my Step-Dad, “P”, I made this using the wonderful Envelope Punch Board.  It makes making matching envelops super easy.

Stampin Up Bohemian Dsp meets Wetlands


I stamped the little tag with the birds from the Wetlands set as well.

Next is the card.  I used the same DSP,



matted and layered it.  I then used the co-ordinating cardstock in Blackberry Bliss and Delightful Dijon and the Square Framelits to cut the centre piece.

The very middle has been sponged with our wonderful inks and then stamped.




The inside has a repeat of the front but also has a money pocket.  This is because my Dad had Euros for his holiday spends.

Have you seen the new Holiday Catalogue yet?  No, click on the link in the sidebar to start your holiday craft shopping.  If you havent got your copy  and would like one then please drop me an email and I will get one posted to you.




Stampin Up A Tissue

Hello peeps

Stampin Up A Tissue

A tissue, a tissue, we all fall down.  Memories of childhood nursery rhymes come to mind when I titled this one Stampin Up A Tissue.  But seriously today’s make is using the resist emboss technique.  Its a really cute tissue box cover to match the gift card I made yesterday.

Again I have used the lovely Tip Top Taupe from the 2015/17 In Colours and Blackberry Bliss from the 2014/16 In Colours.  These two sets of colours (10 in total) blend seamlessly together to give an amazing colour palette.

Stampin Up A Tissue


How gorgeous is that.  It fits over a standard size square box of tissues (available in most Supermarkets)  Again I have used the new labels thinlets dies to create my tissue hole and the surrounding trim.

I love the emboss resist technique and adore how the shading with the sponges highlights different ares of the box.  I have used blackberry bliss, tip top taupe and crumb cake to do this.  I have also stamped over the top as well.

Don’t forget to check back tomorrow for more inspiration.



Stampin Up Awesome Gift

Hi lovelies

Stampin Up Awesome Gift

My class in July was using the Awesomely Artistic Stamp Set.  I love this very versatile stamp set.  My Stampin Up Awesome Gift Card is part of the class.  (All classes are available by post)

In this months class we did resist embossing as one of the techniques.  Every month I make sure we do something different ….. sometimes we revisit techniques we used a long time ago, sometimes new ones and sometimes the class decide what they want to do the next month.  We’ve got shaker cards, accordian cards, resist embossing on vellum and watercoloring coming up in the next few months among other things.  Its going to be an exciting few classes.

Stampin Up Awesome Gift

How cute is this.  It measures approximately 2 1/2″ square.  I’ve used the new labels thinlet dies to create the matts.  The base is tip top taupe, and has been stamped with blackberry bliss.  I have heat embossed with clear embossing powder and then stamped and inked over the top.

The lovely dragonfly is from the Awesomely Artistic set and has been stamped in blackberry bliss and then fussy cut, before being added to the gift card with a glue dot.

Hope to see you again tomorrow for more using this lovely set.
