Hello and Welcome,

Today I am taking part in a video hop with the "Global Monthly Video Collab Group" We are Stampin Up Demos from around the world, who get together every month to bring you a little inspiration.

This months theme is "Florals". And I am so looking forward to seeing what everyone has created, to continue the hop, look for the links below!


I am using one of the New Bundles available now in my Online Store "Celebrate Sunflowers" This set is going to be so popular, who doesn't love Sunflowers - they are the Happy Flower...

The treat box measures 3 x 3 x 2" and can fit a lot of sweet treats inside, what would put inside?

Did you notice two of the NEW 2020 - 2022 In Colors??? Bumblebee and Just Jade work perfectly for this box with a little Early Espresso.

Thanks for visiting today, Please take a look at the blog links below for more inspiration on the hop.

Until Next Time,

Ornate Style Spotlight Card!

Welcome to the Ink and Inspiration Blog Hop for May, this month's theme is "New Annual Catalogue", I am excited to show you what I have created, but I hope you are ready for lot's of great inspiration.

Whether you are starting here or hopped from another blog you are currently visiting Tracy Bish from Australia. I hope you enjoy my project.

The Ornate Garden Suite was an early release from the Stampin Up Annual Catalogue. This suite has two bundles (stamp and die sets), Ribbon, Designer Series Paper, a 3D Embossing Folder, and Embellishments. It is so nice to play with the new products early.

The technique used on this card is called the "Spotlight Technique" where one or more pieces of the card are highlighted and given dimension. Die cutting the circle with the Stitched Shape Dies and the Scallop Mango Melody card with the Layering Circle Dies, but both could be cut with the layering circle dies.

Colouring the circle image with Stampin Blends is so easy, and it just pops off the card... So bright and vibrant on the Thick Whisper White card.
The ribbon and rhinestones have also been coloured with the Stampin Blends to tie the card together.

This bundle can now be purchased through my Online  Store, and any item purchased from this suite using this months Host Code with receive a 90 Card PDF Tutorial Bundle as an extra FREE gift.( You will also receive my Handmade card + the monthly Bundle Tutorial)

I hope you have enjoyed today's card, please be sure to see what other inspiration everyone has ready for you, please click on the links below!

Until Next Time,

Stampin Up's "Painted Poppies" Bundle Card!

Hello and Welcome,

Today's CASE card is from page 26 of the Mini Catalogue, using the Painted Poppies Bundle.This CASE card is a little different from the catalogue, I have put a little spin on it, but still looks pretty similar!

Starting with a Thick Whisper White card base, I have added the DSP (this pattern is so pretty) can you see the die cut poking out from behind the stamped image? 

The Poppy image has been stamped with the Stampin Write Markers (Real Red and Old Olive), sentiment has been Heat Embossed with White Embossing Powder.


Thanks so much for visiting today, I hope you have enjoyed the card, please feel free to leave a comment, I love to hear what you thought!

Until Next Time,

Stampin Up's "Dressed To Impress" Card!

Hello and Welcome,

Today's card is a really "girly" card, that I absolutely love!

This card is totally inspired by the "Best Dressed" Suite that can be found on page 54 - 56 of the Mini Catalogue. Starting out with DSP strip this is where my inspiration started. 

I really wanted to make this card a little different and not completely focus on the pinks, and in the DSP there is a little yellow, that let me bring in the Crushed Curry and Gold to the card.


Thanks so much for popping by my blog today, I hope you were able to receive a little inspiration, and enjoy the card.

I will be back with more inspiration for you very soon, Until then!
