In Every Season CAS Card in Berry Burst

Hello there and happy Sunday!
I hope you weekend is going well? I have a sweet card for you today using the "In Every Season" stamps again, see more with this set HERE, and I used Berry Burst ink pad with blender pens to colour this image...
 I layered the image using stitched shape framelits and Fresh Fig card for a darker tone.
Adding some Berry Burst ribbon that I found in my "box of shame" half finished card makes. I like how the simple strip just lifts this card though, do you?
And that's it! I think these small images lend themselves really well to clean and simple cards so that's it!
Thanks so much for stopping by today, I hope you enjoy the rest of your SUnday and I'll be back tomorrow with another card :-)
'Till then, happy stamping!

Healing Hugs Photrealistic Roses

Have you seen these brilliant new photorealistic stamps in the new catalogue? Stampin' Up! has created these specially etched stamps that allow you to create these different depths of colour with just one inking! They are also all sized so that you can ink the stamp in the centre of our standard ink pads to avoid any lines from having to ink over the edges (I love how SU! think of everything!)
 I am totally in love with this rose set, called Healing Hugs, and I made this card on a bit of a whim after just having to have a play with the flowers...
Of course you can add in other colours with a sponge dauber to make them even more detailed but I just used Flirty Flamingo and Pool Party for these.
 I decided to trim these out and fold them at the edges slightly for a little more texture.
 Finish with sequins and a gold heat embossed sentiment before adding to a Grey Granite (my new favourite neutral!) card base.
So, what do you think of these clever new style of stamps that SU! have named "DistINKtive"? I am in love with them :-D Plus, there is also another set with a lovely Koi Carp image (and more) if that's your kind of thing, I have already seen quite a few lovely makes with them.
Let me know your favourite stamps from this catalogue in the comments ;-)
OK, thanks for looking today and I'll be back tomorrow with another make, I hope I'll see you here.

Using Stitched All Around for Inspire. Create Challenges Sketch #20

Hello there and welcome to today's blog post.
And it's time again for another challenge from Inspire. Create Challenges. This week (#20) it's my favourite kind of challenge, a sketch challenge, so let's start with the sketch shall we?
Now, I have followed the sketch fairly closely this week and I have played with some of my new goodies too! 
I absolutely adore these Petal Promenade papers and couldn't wait to get my hands on them. I didn't actually get the stamps to go with them (yet) so instead I've teamed them with the Stitched All Around stamps and dies with crisp white and navy...
 Love that cross stitch effect border die and the stitched edge framed panel from this set.
 And I think that paper just takes this whole card to another level!
So, do you love them too?? Let me know in the comments section...
To see what the ret of the Dt have made with this sketch please do head over to the ICC blog HERE and then get making! We'd love to see what you come up with!
Thanks so much for looking today :-)

A Good Day with Narrow Notecards by SU!

Hello there,
Yesterday I had a really lovely day of crafting with friends. A card class in the morning and team meeting in the evening :-) I mean, I love to craft anytime but it's even nicer to craft with friends, right? I do have another class on Saturday with a few spare spaces so if you'd like to come along for a relaxed, informal card class then this one is for you. I'll walk you through three cards, step-by-step, and you can enjoy some "me time." Let me know!
So today I have a simple note card to share with you using the Narrow Notecards (these are a really lovely size) teamed with the "A Good Day" stamp set, lets see....
 I used a baby wipe, dipped in an ink pad to make the swooshed background and coloured the image with Blends! Now, exciting new is some of the Sampin' Blends are available to order again! Whoop! Take a look in my shop HERE to see which ones are available and let's keep everything crossed for the rest to be back soon too ;-)
I used the coordinating mini scalloped punches to cut out the image and a layer behind (retired Soft Sky) and the sentiment is also from the set.
And that's all there is to it1 A quick and easy not to send to a friend. I like to keep a few of these kinds of card in my stash, ready to pop into parcels :-D
I'll be back here again tomorrow with a fresh, new challenge for Inspire. Create Challenges using more new stamps and dies so do hop by and take a look, plus I really love the paper I've used for the card, like really love it! I hope to see you here!
