TGIF Challenges #TGIF303


I haven't made a card in a while and it was my besties birthday the other day so I combined a challenge with some new product coming soon.

This week is a sketch challenge and this is what I made with it.

You can not have enough Butterflies!

Using a pop of vellum on top of the Designer Series cut out Butterfly adds dimension to this card.

  • Stamps: Enjoy the Moment
  • Ink:  Versamark
  • Card: Magenta Madness, Basic White, Basic Black, Butterfly Bijou DSP and Gold Foil
  • Tools: Brilliant Wings Dies & Tasteful Textile 3D embossing folder with the Stampin' Cut & Emboss Machine as well as White Embossing Powder with a Heat Tool
  • Embellishments:  Dimensionals & Matt Black Dots

The Dimensionals - Love Is In The Air


Welcome to my blog and to The Dimensionals tutorials and our second year producing great 3D tutorials for you

We’re a group of Stamping Friends who offer 3D Paper Craft Tutorials on the 1st day of every month
I am so super excited to be a part of a group of such talented ladies and I pinch myself on how I got here.......

The theme for this month is Love is in the Air! 
I was lucky that my prize patrol for Onstage last year was the gorgeous Always in My Heart Stampset, so the first opportunity to purchase the dies, I did!

This is my
Love Swing Step Card

Such a pretty die set and it looks great on the front of a card.

With the added Hearts from the Stitched Be Mine Dies it finishes off this card so nicely.

Now if you go to check out Bronwyn's  chokky holders they are pretty cute!

Stamping Pals Challenge 12 - Favourite Technique


I was lucky to be the winner of Challenge 10 and asked to be guest designer for Stamping Pals Challenge 12.

The theme this month is Favourite Technique.

My favourite technique is actually using a die cut to mask a background. 
Here I used Highland Heather, Seaside Spray and Night of Navy for the background and added the colour using the new blending brushes.

After peeling off the die cut you are left with the white lined image for one card and the die cut also has colour so you can use it up on another card... Its a bit of a two for one and super effective.

I love this technique as it is easy to do and it great for any type of stamper from beginner to avid!

You don't need to add too much to the background as it is pretty enough.

What technique are you going to use for this challenge?

  • Stamps: Simply Succulents
  • Ink: Versamark, Highland Heather, Seaside Spray, Night of Navy and Memento
  • Card: Whisper White, Basic Black, Mint Macaron and Vellum
  • Tools: Potted Succulents, Layering Circle and Stitched So Sweetly Dies with a Stampin' Cut and Emboss Machine, White embossing powder and a heat tool, Mint Macaron, Just Jade and Highland Heather Stampin' Blends
  • Embellishments: Dimensionals & Matte Black Dots
