Perfectly Plaid - Clean and Simple


I wanted to have another little play with my Perfectly Plaid stamp set and this is what I came up with :o)


This was the first card I designed. I wanted it to be Clean and Simple and I wanted to use Very Vanilla card - I never use Very Vanilla card and I have masses of it :o)

I started by stamping the little Tree in Shaded Spruce ink ... which is gorgeous by the way - and then stamped the Trunk using Soft Suede ink. 

It needed a little more, so I added one of the Copper Star Designer Elements. I then decided to add a little yellow 'glow' behind the Star, so using a sponge dauber applied a little So Saffron ink underneath it.


The sentiment was stamped using the Delicata Celestial Copper ink and heat embossed using Copper powder. 

I added a Copper Foil layer under the Vanilla panel before adding it to a Shaded Spruce card base.


This is my 'stepped up' version of the first card. The layout and colours are basically the same, but there's much more to it.

This time I stamped the Tree onto scrap Very Vanilla card and cut it out using one of the Square Stitched Shapes dies. I added it to a Copper Foil mat and used Dimensionals to raise it up.

The paper also has a Copper mat. It comes from the Regals 6" paper stack.

The Vanilla background layer was embossed using the Swirls & Curls folder.


I stamped and embossed the sentiment onto scrap Very Vanilla and cut it out using one of the Rectangle Stitched dies. I had to extend the length of the one I used by partial cutting on the Big Shot. I added another Copper mat underneath and again used Dimensionals.

Frosted Snowman Season Card - Video Tutorial


Hi There! :o)

My Video today showcases the Snowman Season stamp set again. I love this set, the images are just too cute!


This is such a simple card. I added extra texture by 'frosting' my Snowman and the little snow banks that he is sat on :o)

I used our gorgeous new Stampin' Ice Glitter for this. It's clear, but adds a lovely sparkle to your projects.


I used my Stampin' Blends Alcohol markers to colour him. You can still see all the details even though he is covered in the glitter. 

His hat was coloured using Real Red, Shaded Spruce and Mango Melody (I said Crushed Curry in the Video).

I stamped on Thick Whisper White this time and used the Fine Tip Glue Pen to adhere the Ice Glitter. If you use the normal weight Whisper White card you may find that it warps and buckles slightly as the glue dries - it's quite a wet glue. You shouldn't get this with the thicker card :o)

Here is the Video ...
