Banners for You Congrats Card for WWYS #122


Hello and welcome to this week’s Challenge at What Will You Stamp? This week we’re playing with Banners for You. I needed a congrats card this week as my daughter and her boyfriend are celebrating their 1st “anniversary” of being together. This stamp set lends itself to so many occasions. Here’s the card I made for them.


I used the “black magic” technique for my card. Starting with a piece of Whisper White cardstock, I stamped the flower images and then stamped over them with Versamark and clear heat embossed, then stamped the “donut” image in Versamark and clear heat embossed them as well. This is where the magic happens. I used my Archival black ink pad and covered the entire panel with ink. The heat embossed areas resist the black ink and you end up with a very unique look.


I’ve used Lemon Lime Twist cardstock as a contrast (hands up if you love this colour as much as I do!). I stamped the donut image again around the edges of the LLT panel in Versamark to give a subtle watermark effect. All that was left was to bling it up and I did that by adding some of the gorgeous new Glitter Enamel Dots.

Tropical Panorama Using Seaside Shore for WWYS #121


Hello and welcome to this week’s Challenge at What Will You Stamp? This week we’re playing with Seaside Shore. What a fun set this is! I had a ball creating what I’m calling my “tropical panorama”.


I went all out and created a net for my little fish. Aren’t they adorable? I also got to test out an exciting new product – Stampin’ Up! now has embossing paste! Woohoo! It’s really fun and just what I needed for my “sand”.

Here’s a couple of close-ups:



TIP: To make flowers (or in this case, fish) look puffy and more 3D, turn them face down on your Stampin’ Pierce Mat and use an embossing tool like the one that comes with the scoreboard, or as I did here, the top of my Piercing Tool. Rub in a gentle circular motion until you’re happy with the result.

Badges and Banners Baby Card for WWYS #120


Hello and welcome to this week’s WWYS Challenge. The stamp set we’re highlighting this week is Badges and Banners. For some reason, it took me a while to decide what to design with this set, although it does lend itself to a quick and easy kind of card. I decided on a baby card (because they’re good to have on hand) so started with the cute birdcage image and “welcome, baby” banner image. I was also itching to use some of the gorgeous new Colour Theory paper, so these three elements were my jumping off point.


I added that beautiful die-cut from the Flourish Thinlits set to give my birdcage something to hang from. I ink blended some watercolour paper with Berry Burst (the same colour as the Designer Series Paper) before cutting it (3 in Whisper White plus the watercoloured layer) and stacked it – such a cool effect!


The birdcage was stamped with Versamark, embossed in gold, as was the sentiment. I punched this out using the Duet Banner Punch, and, because it punches both banners at once, I decided to apply Versamark to the larger banner and covered it in gold embossing powder too and layered it underneath the sentiment. I used my Berry Burst marker to add detail to the sentiment and along the bottom of the birdcage. Some clear Wink of Stella was applied to the birdcage and the flourish. The birdcage was attached to the flourish using Gold Metallic Thread before the top layer was adhered. The final touch was some gold ink (an old Encore ink pad I have in my stash) – simply daubed on with an old paint brush.

TIP: When working with “simple” images like the birdcage, try adding little finishing touches like the Berry Burst accents on this card. You’ll be surprised how it can dress up your design.

Pretty Kitty Card for WWYS #119


Hello and welcome to this week’s WWYS Challenge. This week we’re designing with the oh! so cute Pretty Kitty Stamp Set. I wanted to keep this card sweet and simple to match the kitty, so I chose a simple white background and embossed it with the Softly Falling embossing folder.


I added a shaker element, but again, I kept it soft and pretty with vellum and a simple white frame to disguise the double-sided foam tape underneath. I coloured the kitty with watercolour pencils, fussy cut it out and added it onto the shaker, which I filled with hearts in Flirty Flamingo and Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Paper punched using the Cookie Cutter Builder Punch.


The sentiment was punched with the Classic Label Punch and nestled at the bottom of the shaker. I added some clear Wink of Stella around the shaker frame to add a little somethin’ somethin’.

TIP: White embossing on white is a great way to create a classically elegant look.

Crazy Crafters Blog Hop with Special Guest Lea Denton

Welcome to the Crazy Crafters’ Blog Hop with special guest Lea Denton. Lea lives in the UK and has been crafting for over 25 years! Her designs are gorgeous. We are excited to be hopping with her today. You can check out all the yummy inspiration on Lea’s blog by clicking on her picture.

We are each CASEing (Copying and Selectively Editing) one of Lea’s designs today. The card I chose to CASE (shown below) is a fun spinner card, and I haven’t made one of these before (don’t ask me why). Lea’s card uses the Lift Me Up bundle, but I’ve decided to go with the Eastern Palace Suite for my version.


And here it is.


I love blue and gold together, so I heat embossed both sentiments in gold and used Dapper Denim with Gold Foil Paper and a gorgeous foiled paper from the Designer Series Paper pack. This suite is beautiful, and you can choose from two exclusive bundles that include freebies BUT they’re only available to purchase in this format until 1 June; they won’t be bundled in the Annual Catalogue, so get in early and get yours! Click here to see the offer. And here’s the inside. I chose to keep it clean and simple and just let the opulence of the gold speak.


To continue along the hop, select the person next on the list after me, Gail Davidson, to see all the gorgeous creations from Lea and the other Crazy Crafters.
