Welcome from Cathy's page


I really like the richness of these colours.


I was using the stars in a class a couple of weeks ago so I decided to keep using them as they are so pretty.

The strips of paper in the background are 1.2cm wide (great for using up scraps) and the black background has a splash of Champagne Shimmery Paint sprayed on it to add some sparkle.

Lastly the flowers were stamped on the shimmery white cardstock in Merry Merlot and I used an aqua painter to move the colour around.



  • Stamps: Free as a Bird
  • Ink: Gray Granite, Blackberry Bliss and Merry Merlot
  • Card: Whisper White, Shimmery White, Basic Black, Gray Granite, Blackberry Bliss and Merry Merlot
  • Tools: Aqua Painter, Stitched Stars Dies and Stitched Rectangle Dies with a Die Cutting Machine
  • Embellishments: Dimensionals and Champagne Shimmer Paint

        Welcome from Nikki's project





        The year sixes at our primary school had their confirmation on the weekend which prompted me to pull out my Hold onto Hope set to make this fortnights card.

        Since we don't have Purple Posy ink just yet I did stretch and use Gorgeous Grape with the Highland Heather.

        This is a perfect quick card to make when you are a bit time poor as the background paper makes the card look finished. (Well the Confirmation writing took the longest as each letter is stamped singularly.)

        • Stamps: Hold onto Hope and Make a Difference
        • Ink: Highland Heather & Gorgeous Grape
        • Card: Whisper White, Shimmery White, Purple Posy, Garden Green and Feels Like Frost Specialty DSP stack
        • Tools:  Subtle Embossing Folder,  Christmas Layers Dies, Stitched Labels Dies with a Die Cutting Machine
        • Embellishments: Dimensionals

              Welcome from the gorgeous Rose's page


              I have a set I don't think I have inked yet....



              I had a few scraps of the Designer Series Paper sitting on my desk from a previous project that I had made and thought why not use them up!

              I made two frames in the whisper white to place over the top on an offset angle and cut a Seaside Spray Circle which was then embossed with the subtle folder for a bit of texture.

              The cake was stamped with the new Delicata Metallic Ink and coloured with Stampin' Blends for a splash of colour. I then dipped the rhinestones into the ink to make them gold :-)
              (tip: I have noticed that the gold will rub off no matter how long you leave it to dry so it may be best to clear emboss over the top so it sets)


              • Stamps: Piece of Cake
              • Ink: Gold Delicata Metallic Ink and Rococo Rose
              • Card: Whisper White, Seaside Spray, Gold Foil and In Colour 2019-2021 Designer Series Paper stack
              • Tools: Seaside Spray & Rococo Rose Stampin' Blends, Subtle Embossing Folder, Cake Builder Punch, Christmas Layers Dies, Stitched Shapes & Stitched Rectangles Dies with a Die Cutting Machine
              • Embellishments: Dimensionals and Rhinestones
