Todays cards feature two new stamp sets from the new Stampin Up catalogue Hello Colour and You’ve Got Style. These stamps are both such cute stamps and they both feature line stamps that I am able to colour in yipee. This is a very mono chrome card using pinks (powder pink from the new in colours) and I found this quite calming and very soft colouring, however any colouring would be fantastic.

Welcome to week 3 of the design team. This week I had fun looking at different cuts and folds for card, I took my inspiration from Vamp Stamps eArticle called Speciality Card Folds: Cards with More Than One Fold (link can be found here. I would encourage you to have a look at the other eArticles.
I settled on a tri fold card with the top of the card stepped, on relection I think that this stamp was a bit too big for this but overall the card came out quite well.

Welcome to the 2nd week of the June design team. This week I have gone pink and made a very simple and easy gift tag. I have used Melon Mambo as my colour this week as it so such as bright a cheery colour, brightens up any day.
For this project you will need
Remarkable You stamp set
White card stock (3 1/2 by 5 1/2)
Cardstock (4 by 6)
Verasafine black onyx
Stampin Write Markers (melon mambo)
All Things Thanks stamp set.
Ribbon to match.
I rounded the corners of the tag and stamped in the image in black ink. Using the stampin marker and coloured in the dark parts of the calla lily and used a water brush to drag the colour to make the lighter or highlight areas. This would also look great on the front of a card as well.
There will be a video to follow but I have such a busy week and the weekend was the wedding of a very good friend so I had not weekend to shoot the video.
God bless and happy stamping.
Hello and welcome to week 1 for the June Pootles design team.
This month’s stamp set is called Remarkable You (click to purchase). This stamp was never on my radar, I don’t know why as it is flowers and something I can colour in, both of which I love.
As this stamp is a very clean and elegant I want to mimick that in the finished project as I don’t do fussy cards (if that what you are looking for you’ve come to the wrong place). I also wanted to single layer card but to too boring that’s why I decided to cut a panel out.
I have done a short video (well short for me) on how I completed that card.

A scrap of cardstock for the strip (I used night of navy but any colour that matches or goes with the colour of the flower.
