{Evelin T Designs} Featured Stamp Set: Warm Winter Wishes


I'm on the Evelin T Designs blog with a holiday card featuring the Warm Winter Wishes stamp set (also sold at EH | SSS). It was hard to pick which images I wanted to work with since they're all so cute! Since I'm a big coffee/tea lover, I decided to colour the three cuties holding mugs.


I decided on a colour theme to highlight their scarves and mittens. Then I watercoloured each image strategically so they would look great sitting in a row with their winter accessories, enjoying their beverages.


To create an interesting background and to highlight these adorable images, I used two different dies to create a border with wonky scallops and stitching. Then I used the colours I used on the accessories to sponge the edges before stamping the sentiment.


I adhered fun foam to the back of the panels and used foam tape to attach the animals. To finish, I added a little white silk bow to the bunny's ear.


Thanks so much for stopping by!

{Altenew} Sympathy Card featuring Summer Afternoon Gradient Cardstock + Giveaway Reminder


I recently had to make a sympathy card for dear friends of mine. It's never a card anyone wants to make but the right products make it easier. Altenew's Build-A-Flower: Morning Glory is still my favourite Build-A-Flower set. I just love the way the layered inks highlight the blooms and the combination of stems, spiral vines and leaves is perfection.


I picked my colours based on recently released sets of Gradient Cardstock, using the coordinating inks to stamp the flowers and leaves from  Build-A-Flower: Morning Glory, and the bird from Birds of a Feather. Then I used the Summer Afternoon Gradient Cardstock to cut two strips for the sentiment from Starry Flowers and die cut the branch from Birds of a Feather.


I picked Shades of Purple because of the family's fondness for the colour and because it symbolizes the richness of a long and full life. The Sea Shore colours represent the sky and Summer Afternoon the sunshine. Visually, all the colours compliment each other and create a full scene.


You can find additional inspiration featuring the Build-A-Flower: Morning Glory HERE and Birds of a Feather HERE.

{Catherine Pooler Designs} October 2019 Club Sursee | Part 3


I'm back one last card using the Deluxe Club Sursee subscription for October 2019. Again, this one uses the same colour scheme as the first two cards I shared (here and here) using these same products. It's so easy to create several cards with one set of colours! I find that I don't have to think too much this way. ;) Do you do this, too?


This card features more of the amazing images from the Sleigh Ride stamp set and coordinating Sleight Ride Dies. I also used the Scroll Border Die to dry emboss the top and bottom of the panel to symbolize blowing snow, which ties into the sentiment from Sleigh Bells Ring.


I attached the trees, truck and snowflakes at different heights using both glue dots and foam tape. To frame the scene, I added 1/8" stripes of glitter black cardstock to the top and bottom of the panel.
