Summer Silhouettes

This card was really easy to make. The colours are midnight muse with pool party, whisper white and natural white.

A bit of paper piercing and embossing with the polka dot embossing folder just adds that little bit more.

Waterfall cards

I had lots of fun making these waterfall cards and they were surprising simple to do.

I first saw these being made at a Stampin' Up! training event but there lots of videos and tutorials out on the net that are easy to follow.

This is the first time I've used Calypso Coral with Raspberry Ripple but I like how they work together. It's nice and vibrant and a change from the usual subtle pink for a new baby.

I also wanted something different since baby Ella is nearly 6 months now and I 've just got round to getting her a gift. My bad!

This is my husbands valentine card which was actually the first one I did and I was so pleased I did some more.

I also find with a new technique or idea that if I try it a few times all at once then the procedure tends to stick a bit more in my little blond brain.

This one is using the fresh vintage designer series paper which was on offer last year for sale-a-bration. I loved these paper and I still turn to this stamp set often as it is a favourite.

More Direct to Paper Scenic Stamping

Summer Silhouettes


stampin up, summer silhouettes, scenic stamping, direct to paper

This was some more direct to paper and sponging which was done with the summer silhouettes set.

Colours are pumpkin pie, old olive, pool party and island indigo. The images were stamped using basic black.

The vintage wallpaper embossing folder was used for the background with island indigo card, and naturals white for the card base. The main image is mounted with old olive and there's a touch of pretty in pink in there too.

I really enjoyed making this card and this is a lovely stamp set.
