Paperbabe Stamps challenge #65

Today we have a new challenge for you at Paperbabe Stamps

Below are two images, The Pantone colour of the year is Ultra Violet, so we have a colour and a floral image



You can use the images any way you choose, let your imagination run free and create something fun.

I created a card to help inspire you

After a good look through my crafty stash I settled on something a little different. I was inspired by the colour and floral images but wanted to create something that was my spin on the theme, I got to  thinking about how the Pom Poms in the Designa knit set reminded me of Alium heads.



I started by Inking a piece of super sooth card using Distress Oxide in seedless preserves, I ombred the  background slightly, in order to add intesity to the top part of the background I added a little Distrees Oxide Peacock feathers. I then used the large pom pom and some Disstress Ink seedless preserve to stamp my pattern.  I then added some sparkle to the smaller pom poms using a clear sparkle embossing powder.

The sentiment comes in two parts was stamped in black ink and white embossing powder.  I wrapped some twine around the top section and adhered to a card blank.

I hope I've shown how you can create something pretty even if you dont have the same colour or flower.

Tattered Lace world launch - DT Samples

I have 3 cards to share today using the World Launch from Tattered Lace dies which is set to launch on Create and Craft TV tonight at 7pm as part of their world wide week event.


First up is a shaker card using the If wishes were kisses die set. I cut the boy and girl in black card and added them behind a pink heart apperture.


Next we have a cute card featuring the sweet little boy and girl, I opted for a muted pallet and simple design using one of the Lace edge essential dies.


In this final card I used all 3 of  the die sets I was sent, I love how the Lace edge and beaded chains circles can work perfectly together.

The nesting dies are a fantastic addition to my collection and the cute little boy and girls are so adorable.

I have added links for each product below.

For the guys - Altenew Educator Certification Program

Morning everyone

I'm sharing a card I made recently whilst participating in the Altenew Educator Certification Program.


I used Altenews cube builder stencil to create the geometric background,it's perfect for the men in your life. I added my sentiment using the Bold Alphabet dies and the best dad stamp set. The stars were stamped using the Trophy life stamp set.


I love the bold black against the green tones. I am so glad I added this stencil and dies set to my stash.

Here's links to the products I used


Thanks for stopping by, I'll be back later in the week with more crafty projects.

Anniversary card - Altenew Educator certification program challenge





I am so excited to be sharing this project with you, this card is my final one for the Level 1 Altenew educators certification program. After taking all 10 classes and submitting my work I was asked to make an Anniversary/love/wedding card skils things I have learnt from 3 of the classes.

Choosing which three was to use was a little tricky as I learnt so much and in a way I think my card combines elements from several classes.



I was inspired by the All about layering 1 and 2 classes and wanted to use layered floral images so choose to use the Vintage rose stamps and dies. 

I used the following colours for my flowers; Blush, Peach perfect, Rouge and Caramel toffee.


I loved the Easy die cutting class and some of the things I learnt, so my leaves were die cut from vellum and then heated embossed using Golden Peach embossing powder.


In the Clean and Simple Boutique cards class I learnt about the use of white space and adding foiling or metallic elements to projects, adding embossing powder to the leaves creates a metallic effect, the shine is stunning yet subtle.

I have had a blast and learnt so much form some very talented designers/tutors.

I hope this card gets me a pass and I can progress on to level 2.

Thanks for stopping by today, I hope you have liked this project.

Easy Die cutting techniques - Altenew Educator Certification Program

Good morning everyone, today I am sharing a clean and simple stamped and die cut card.


I created my card using Altenews Vintage teacup stamp and die set. I was inspired by the Altenew class Easy die cutting techniques. I think sometimes it's easy to get caught up in trying out the next new technique and to forget about how we can make clean simple cards using the set we have in our stash.


I stamped my tea cup and saucer onto some Solar crest card and used Altenews Artist markers to colour the image.  I added the polka dot detail using the stamp in the set along with Lavender fields ink set.


I added the steam image in grey and my sentiment in black.

I think letting the imagery speak for itself makes this card beautiful

Spread your wings - Paperbabe Stamps DT project


Hey there, we have a new challenge for you (the first of 2018) over at Paperbabe Stamps.

It's a fan favourite, Anything goes!!!


I have created a simple card to help inspire you. 



I used 2 inks for the coloured areas of my card, Wild Honey Distress oxide and spiced marmalade Distress ink.

I then used Onyx black Versafine to add the detailed alphabet sentiment and the Wild honey distres oxide for the water coloured  part of the letters.

Lastly I stamped and embossed a butterfly onto acetate and then fussy cut it before adding it to the bottom of my card.

Do you want to join in with the challenge?

Clean and simple Boutique cards - Altenew Educator Certification Program


I have been dying to share this card with you, I was totally inspired by the Amazing Jennifer Rzasa and her Altenew Academy class; Clean and simple boutique cards.




In the class Jennifer talk about not being afraid of white space on your cards. This is something I have previously struggled with but not any more.


I created my card by blending a section using Distress inks and flicking water at it.  I adhered this to a white card and added a black die cut Elephant from the Baby Zoo die set.  I then stamped my sentiment from the Be strong stamp set.


One of the other things that hit me in the class was how we can make the recipients experience even ore special by decorating the envelopes we put our master pieces in.

I blended a piece of white card using the same colours as on my card, I then die cut the word hugs and a heart and added then to a white envelope liner.

When the envelope is opened you see the word hugs first and then as the card is taken out you then get the surprise of the heart.

Irresistible inking techniques - Altenew Educator Certification Program


Today I am sharing a card inspired by the lovey Sara Naumann and her Irresistible Inking techniques class at Altenew Academy.

As you know I am taking part in the Altenew Educator Certification Program and have to take course to pass each level. This course was part of the level 1 requirement but you to can take the course to learn new skills and new ways in which to use your crafty stash.



So what did I make?

This card is very different than my usual style but I adore it, it reminds me of some of the cards my Mum and step farther used to get each other, they were on recycled hand made paper and very muted water coloured images.



I used Sara's tips on brayering a background panel using my Altenew crisp inks, I dab a little ink on to my glass mat and spritzed with water, I then roll my brayer through it and then onto my white cardstock. I first did this with the Caramel Toffee ink, blasted it with my heat gun and then repeated with the rouge ink.


I then stamped and die cut some tulips to co ordinate with my chosen colour palette. I adhered my brayerd background onto some white card and edged the card with Caramel Toffee ink by running my ink pad against the edges of the card.


I finished it off by adding some twine and a sentiment. I used foam pads to adhere the brayerd panel to add some depth and dimension. My sentiment on the outside reads "sending you" and on the inside of my card it says birthday wishes.
