Thanks With Stampin' Up!'s Floral Phrases


Wow!  The week has gone by super fast!  I had intended to post up this card earlier.  This is the other card we did at my class last weekend.  If you would like to check out the other card click here.

In the new Stampin' Up! Annual Catalogue 2016-2017, the Floral Phrases set was the set I just had to get straight away (I know, who am I kidding, along with half the catalogue...).  But really - pages 76-77 were my favourite featuring this stamp set, dies, papers and Night of Navy ...

It is just so easy to create something spectacular with any of the products on those pages.  For this card the die set is the hero product - in a very simple but elegant card.

Hope you have had an amazing weekend!

Lots of hugs,
Lisa xx

Sunshine Love Wishes


Another great class today with lovely ladies joining me for the Step It Up Class.  Today we did a lot with the Big Shot and played with some beautiful embossing folders and dies.

For today's class I wanted to show that you can use a dry embossed image in a different way by colouring the raised areas with Stampin' Write Markers.  I love the new 2016-2018 In Colors so have used four of the 2016-2016 Marker Collection here on an embossed image created with one of the "Floral Affection" folders.  I've also used Garden Green from the Regals Marker Set for the leaves.

I've also used details from the "Sunshine Wishes" Thinlits set.  This set just makes me feel so happy - just like stamping and papercrafts.

Well I hope you have enjoyed a wonderful Saturday.
Love and hugs,

Lisa xx

Watercolor Wings Silver Embossed Card


The other card that we created at my Easy Cards Class last Saturday (see my previous post for first card).   We used one of my favourite stamp sets - Watercolor Wings.  It is another Two/Three Step Stamp Set - and it is just sooo pretty!
For this card the main colours used are Mint Macaron and Emerald Envy - highlighted with some Silver Embossing.  A simple card with beautiful results.

Hope you are all having a wonderful weekend :)

Happy crafting and hugs,
Lisa xx

Embossed Wondrous Wreath Card


Yesterday I held my Easy Cards & Craft Class and the focus was learning how to use Two/Three Step Stamping Sets and practising heat embossing.

For this card the stamp set used is Wondrous Wreath.  I have used this set so much - lots of fun ways to use it and great value for money.  Here's some of my previous posts with examples of this set:

Wondrous Wreath - CASEing the Holiday Catty

Wondrous Wreath Fun!

Wonderful Christmas


For this card the stamp with a smaller number of leaves was stamped over the top of the main wreath image and heat set with gold embossing powder.  I really love the colour combo with Very Vanilla Cardstock, Crumb Cake Ink Pad, Gold Embossing and popped with the new In-Color Sweet Sugarplum - used for the ruched ribbon, stamped sentiment and the cardstock to highlight the wreath panel.



I also wanted to show the class one of my favourite things - the VersaMark stamp pad.  It is a great item to start out with when getting into cardmaking and scrapbooking as you can use it in a lot of different ways.  It also has a refill available - I like to make sure the pad is really juicy for lovely clear embossed images - it really helps the powder to stick better prior to heating.


I hope you have enjoyed seeing this project.

Happy crafting and hugs,
Lisa xx
