Animal Outing Baby Card

Good Morning readers and welcome to my blog today! Today's make (and tomorrow's) will be with the Animal Outing stamp set. I was lucky to get this one free at a Stampin' Up! event in April and I must say it's one of those sets that has now grown on me! I saw THIS CARD on Pinterest and just had to case it as I loved it so much. I made a few tweaks and didn't use the Rooted in Nature papers but created a patterned background with the leaf stamp from the Rooted in Nature set.

The animals were coloured with the Stampin' Blends, watch out for a new Blends club coming soon!
What is really helpful with the colouring of these stamps is the shading on the stamp. If you look at the rhino you can use the lines and shaded areas to add the darker pen to help achieve a shaded look! I am no colouring expert, I just try and use this to help me!
Hope you like today's card, will be back with another one tomorrow!
July's code is now live and will run until 30th July

Petal Promenade Customer Thank You cards

Good morning and welcome back to my blog today! Today's makes are some quick and simple little cards I made for my customers who ordered online with me last month. I wanted to share how wonderful the Petal Promenade papers are and made these cute little square cards. You can get 3 out of a piece of A4, they measure 9.9cm square.
I've used Petal Pink for the card base and then of course the stunning Petal Promenade papers 
The sentiment is from the Accented Blooms stamp set, stamped in Grapefruit Grove and punched out with the coordinating punch.
My customers also received a hostess stamp set as a free gift this month. I love choosing free gifts for them and sending them out! Hope you enjoy them ladies!
This months code is LIVE if you would like to get a free gift in August from me!

Petal Promenade Papers

Good Morning and welcome to my blog today! Today's card style is a new one for me, it's called a Peek a Boo Gatefold card and I was totally inspired by the lovely Rachel Tessman. You can find a video on this card on Rachel's lovely blog HERE I have actually had the privilege of meeting Rachel in person on the Stampin' Up! Caribbean Cruise and climbed the Dunn's River Falls with Rachel and her Mum! Thank you Rachel for the inspiration. I have used the Petal Promenade Papers that are part of the Buy 3 and get a 4th free offer.
These papers truly are stunning and the catalogue and my photography do not do them justice at all, they truly are stunning and I just love the images of the peonies, so on trend!
 For this card to work you do need some nice sturdy ribbon to hold the closure shut. The ribbon is held down with some glue dots. 
 Inside a message is hidden by the circle on the outside, a nice little touch! Thank you again Rachel for the inspiration.

Rooted in Nature Gatefold Card

Good Morning! I am a little late posting today after quite a hectic weekend of Cricket, Football and more Cricket but I am back now with a couple of new cards to share with you.
We made these cards at our Team Training event last week and I designed the one here using the papers that are part of the Buy 3 and get a 4th FREE offer this month.  As usual after I designed it I thought of ways I could improve the card and suggested to my team that they could stamp leaves on the Designer paper which some of them did and I sneaked a photo of Amanda's make below.
Here is what the inside of the card looked like before I stuck it in and below is the card Amanda made with the addition of the stamped leaves on the DSP.
 I love the Thinking of You sentiment and we embossed this with Copper Embossing powder. I also made another version with the reverse side of the paper. The joy of our papers is that if you don't like one design then we have another design on the back!
 And here is the lovely Copper Embossing in all it's glory!
