The sweet peas stamp set is one you can use for all occasions, from birthday to a new baby.  Have some fun with it. 

For this card, grab your colouring pens, embossing powder and heat tool.

Stamp some peas onto some cardstock to cut out and stamp the peas in a pod onto a piece that you can die cut or punch out.  Use your memento black or another ink colour. Have some fun colouring them in.  Cut out the small peas – a little therapeutic fussy cutting.

On the smaller piece of cardstock, decide on your placement and then stamp a couple of the flowery stamps using versamark and then heat emboss.

Stamp your sentiment with versamark and heat emboss that then punch or die cut.

For the strip, use a piece of patterned paper and trim to your desired width – the piece on this card is slightly longer than the layer.

Layer up your pieces, glue down and add some sparkly gems.  Voila!

A whole Latte Love

So this took me a while, I did get the stamps out and stamped a few images and then went rogue and just used the papers, and some other things too!

The papers from the online exclusive so are not in any catalogue.  The papers are double sided and I used two sheets out of the pack. 

I have used the happy birthday from the wanted to say dies, which are carried over into the next catalogue with the happy birthday die cut from the new basic beige.  I roughed up the edge of the coffee cups, and for the strip and ‘blue’ piece went around the edge with a marker to give it a bit of a pop. I took the photo on a piece of paper that is also included in the papers!

And just a little reminder, the items retiring in the mini catalogue and 2023-2024 catalogue last chance ends tomorrow (29 April) in case there is still something you fancy to add to your crafting needs.

Get creative : Ice Cream!

Stepping It Up: Ice Cream Swirl Bundle

Strawberry or vanilla? Or, maybe chocolate?  With the Ice Cream Swirl Bundle (which includes the Ice Cream Swirl Stamp Set and Dies) you can create your own flavour! It also happens to be a perfect choice for step-up projects!

What’s the scoop on the “CASEable” version?

Keep it simple by using tone-on-tone stamping, die-cut images, a Lighter than Air Designer Series Paper banner embellishment, and a trio of our Rainbow Adhesive-Backed Dots. Finish it off with a sentiment stamped in Bubble Bath ink on Basic White Cardstock. Sweet!

Approachable Avid
To make the yummy and refreshing “Approachable Avid” card really pop, make a simple frame with Pool Party Cardstock and use the ice cream swirl and wafer cone detail dies to add an extra layer of fun.

The striped, Lighter than Air Designer Series Papes (with its ice cream parlour vibe) provides the perfect, pastel background.

Artfully Avid
To create the “Artfully Avid” Pool Party Cardstock gift packaging, start with a watercolour wash on Fluid 100 Watercolor Paper and die cut the shapes (including a cherry and rolled wafer biscuit, this time!).

Do you love the scalloped ice cream cone wrapper and the sunny Lemon Lolly Baker’s Twine bow?

Such cute touches make this the perfect gift packaging for any summer occasion!

Surprise! Have you seen…
