Blended Seasons - Friend


I did something just a little bit different for today's card. Do you remember the one I posted last Wednesday? You can see it again HERE. Well ...... I challenged myself to create another, but only using products I used in my first card ..... and this is the result :o)

I used the same stamps, framelits, colours and embossing folder. Both are great cards ..... but quite different.

The Blended Seasons bundle is very versatile .... that's what it's about afterall - suitable for all seasons! The stamp set and framelits are available together as a Bundle saving you 10% on the total price. Or you can purchase them separately. You can find full details HERE. Remember though, these products are ONLY available for this month!


The sentiment panel is created using the Stitched Seasons framelits. I used the largest of them here, but cut it a little differently. I saw Australian Demo Kylie Bertucci do this for one of her cards and thought what a fabulous shape it was. 

You can do the same technique with lots of different framelits - punches too! I've done it in the past with several, but until I saw Kylie's card I had completely forgotten about the technique.

I recommend that you cut your mat and then stamp on it. If you try to get your stamping centred while you are creating your mat, it can get a little tricky. 

Cut your mat as normal - you can just do a part of it if you want from a smaller piece of card. Once you have done the first cut, you just move the framelit down the card until you have the shape you want .... and run it through the Big Shot again. Give it a go .... it's really simple to do :o).

Design It With DSP - Blog Hop - Nature's Poem


Welcome to the Design It With Designer Series Paper Blog Hop! 

I am excited to share projects with you created by Demonstrator friends around the world. This month we are all using the Nature's Poem Designer Series Paper (DSP) from Stampin' Up!

I am honoured to be a part of this Design Team and love that we get this opportunity to inspire you with awesome projects all using the same DSP! Make sure you check out all the Blogs (list at the bottom) and enjoy all of these wonderful projects :o)



The Nature's Poem DSP comes in a 12" x 12" pack of 12 sheets. You get 2 each of 6 double sided designs. These papers are really lovely. I tried to use as many as possible in my project! They are part of the Nature's Poem Product Suite and coordinate with the Rooted In Nature stamp set and Nature's Roots framelits.

I have created a Video Tutorial for you for my project. I hope you enjoy it :o) 

I would love to know what you think of my card .... please leave me a comment at the end :o) 

Today's project is this Handkerchief / Napkin fold card ....



This is how it looks when tucked inside its Belly Band.


And .... when the Belly Band is removed.


Finally .... when it's fully opened. There is plenty of room for a message on the centre panel.

Here is the Video Tutorial:

Blended Seasons with Striped Scallops


I have used the wonderful Blended Seasons bundle again for today's card. Remember, these products are only available until the end of this month ..... then they will be gone! You can find all the details of the Promotion HERE.

I chose to focus on the leaves this time ... stamping them down the left-hand side of the white mat in three different colours. I then ran this through the Big Shot with the Striped Scallops embossing folder.


The two die cut leaves were created using the coordinating Stitched Seasons framelits, as was the Rich Razzleberry mat that the sentiment sits on.
