Take a “Traveler” with me


Wow!! I just love this new stamp set “Traveler”. I knew that it would be one of the first stamp sets that I would buy out of the new Autumn/Winter Catalogue

This card measures 6in x 6in, which is one of my favourite sizes…I also used a couple of embossing folders to give the card more depth and texture, I used the chevron and dotty ones, I think they are my most used…..although have you seen the new one! with the large dots,  take a look you will love it. This card came together really quickly once I had stamped and cut out all the images that I was going to use…which was just as well as I got the colour wrong and was meant to make it in blue…..never mind…..you can never have enough spare male cards lying around….well you can if they are sitting in my craft room as I love making male cards.

Thanks for stopping by and taking a look at what I have made, don’t forget to leave a comment!!

Colour with Blendabilities




I just love the new Blendabilities, they are brilliant, and the one thing you don’t have to  do is try and match up colours for the right blend as “Stampin Up” have done all the hard work for you, it makes colouring so easy now.

Blendabilities come in packs of 3, dark, medium and light, and all for £10.95 per pack, on the other hand you can get the skin tone which consists of 6 colours for £20.95, bargain wouldn’t you say.

I used Flower shop and Petite petals for this card. The leaf stamp is from clarity stamps. And to finish it off I made an envelope with the envelope punch board and lined it with paper from the designer series paper stack, I think it finishes this card off

I used the masking technique for this card, this technique is so simple but very effective.

Welcome to “Stampin Stars” blog hop

Welcome to “Stampin Stars” blog hop there is lots to share with you, so take a seat and enjoy.

If you have hopped here from Angela then welcome to my blog 🙂 if you are starting with me welcome too 🙂 there are lots of wonderful projects for you to see

I am just loving the new catalogue,  and one of the stamps that was a must have for me was the “Sea Street”, these stamps are just too cute…….and I used my new favourite colour “Blackberry Bliss”…….love, love, love it….. I think you get the idea. So here is my project for my first ever Blog Hop……


The Moonlight designer series paper  stacks are gorgeous, so I didn’t waste any time in putting this card together, I also made a cute box to go with ,it which will be filled with some sweets, as my grandaughter Mia will be receiving this card. The box is really simple to make and I left one end unstuck, because I made a little sleeve to keep  it closed, making it this way the box can be kept or re-used for another small gift.

Dimensions for card:

Cut Blackberry Bliss: 4in x 12in, score at 6in on the long side

Cut Dsp: 3 4/8in x  3 4/8in, mat onto Hello Honey: 3 6/8in x 3 6/8in: adhere to card front

Cut Hello Honey strip: 4in  x  7/8 in 

Cut Blackberry Bliss strip: 4in x 5/8in

Stamp the octopus onto whisper white, cut out, using dimensionals stick to dsp.

Stamp the flag strip onto whisper white (I used 2 colours for mine) hand cut out, adhere to Blackberry Bliss strip then mat onto Hello Honey strip. Adhere to card front

Stamp a sentiment onto a whisper white (I used one from the gift of kindness) cut it out using the word bubble framelits dies, sponge the edge with Blackberry Bliss adhere to card using a dimensional.

Dimensions for box:

Cut a piece of Blackberry Bliss card stock: 5 in x 7 in 

Cut dsp: 3 6/8 in x 1 in 

Apply sticky strip or tombo to the short side of the card, roll up and adhere. Once stuck, stick one end together, if you have a crimper run the bottom edge through, this will make it look like those small frozen drink cartons. With the other end flatten the end so it sticks the opposite way to the bottom, lay on you score board and score 1/2 in down from the top, this will help make it hold together.

For the sleeve: score the dsp on the short side at 1/in, on the long side score at 2/8 in + 3 4/8 in, fold and stick, once dry slip onto box. You have now completed my project, enjoy.
