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.

Sprinkles of Life Basket of Flowers

Morning Peeps,


Sprinkles of Life Basket of Flowers

Everyone loves to receive a basket of flowers once in a while, and card makers are no exception.  The Sprinkles of Life Basket of Flowers is a great way to show someone how much you care and bring a little sunshine into their day.

Stampin Up Sprinkles of Life


I used the gorgeous Cucumber Crush and Watermelon Wonder as my base colours for this card.  The clouds are stamped and then punched using the matching punch.  Don’t you just love the sunshine.  Its also a punch.

I really enjoyed making this card, so simple, so quick and just so happy.


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 Vintage Leaves Wreath

Hi Guys,



Stampin Up Vintage Leaves Wreath

When I first looked through the new annual catalogue I complete dismissed these gorgeous leaves.  It never dawned on me that I could make a beautiful Stampin Up Vintage Leaves Wreath, let alone the beautiful cards that have also been made.  All I saw was leaves not potential.

How many of you have been uninspired by what you’ve seen, or thought I can’t use that in lots of ways so I’m not going to get it.  I have come to the conclusion that these are the sets that we go back to time and time again.  I have loved using these leaves.

I have stamped them, die cut them, coloured them, heat embossed them, emboss resisted them, you name it I’ve done it to these Stampin Up Vintage Leaves.  They are a must have.
Stampin Up Vintage Leaves Wreath


Heres my gorgeous wreath.  I have used Delightful Dijon, Cherry Cobbler, Cajun Craze and Chocolate Chip in this one.  It is absolutely gorgeous.

Stampin Up Vintage Leaves Wreath

As you can see I stamped every leaf in Early Espresso, and then cut using the matching framelits. I am so in love with my Stampin Up Vintage Leaves Wreath that I have made two.  One for local shop display and one for my home.



To finish off I used the stunning Watercolour Wings.  This fantastic triple stamping set is done in Cherry Cobbler, Cajun Craze and Delightful Dijon.  I have layered three butterflies and finished off with Pearl Basic Jewels.  Of course, when the seasons change  I can remove the leaves – I have made this possible, and then add a winter theme, spring or summer theme as need be.

I am running a couple of classes on these.  If you would like to join in please get in touch.




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.
