Touches of Texture and Designer Tin of Cards Stamp Set - a GREAT pair!


I've been having lots of fun playing with the Serene Scenery paper stack. The patterns and texture in this paper pack is awesome. In addition to the ones I shared here the other day, I have a few more to share with you today.


This first one combines the pattern that has kind of a linen look to it with the flower from the Touches of Texture stamp set and a greeting from the Designer Tin of Cards stamp set. I added a flagged piece of the cucumber crush mini striped ribbon and stapled on a bow tied from linen thread. I don't stamp on patterned paper very often but this paper pack is perfect for it.


This woodgrain paper is one of my favorites from the paper stack. I love it! I would love to see this sheet available in a 12x12 sheet. This card also uses the same two stamp sets.

Here's a little tip when using markers with your photopolymer stamp sets, as I did for the greeting on this card.
  • Ink the entire greeting with the lightest color - in this case pool party.
  • Use a clean blender pen to remove the ink wherever you'd like a different color.
  • Use a marker to reink that word - here I used the delightful dijon marker to ink the word fantastic.
  • Give the stamp a huff and stamp it onto your paper.
I find that markers don't seem to adhere to the photopolymer stamps like they do the rubber stamps so this tip helps.

I will leave you with one last card created using this same grouping of products.


Such a simple card but I love the combination of the realistic and spotted patterns!

Have a creative day!

Foxy Friends Welcome Little One Layout


One of my top ten items from the new catalogue is definitely the Little Foxy Suite - the little fox in the Foxy Friends stamp set and the patterned paper pack are awesome! I combined this sweet of products and a few others to create this super cute layout of the day my daughter was born. It's such a simple layout and similar to a few others I've done using circles. When you find a layout you love, why not duplicate it! Just switch up the products and colors you use and no one will never know;)


Check out that little fox - isn't he adorable! This grouping of products is perfect for baby projects - think of the cute baby shower invitations and decor you could make with this! But it's not just for babies - you can use it for pretty much anything!


Notice the tight scallops around the photo of my daughter? That's from the Layering Circles framelits. The set comes with assorted sizes of circles and scallop circles and I am loving those tight scallops! And of course another top ten - the labeler alphabet. I'm pretty sure you will be seeing that on almost all my layouts from now on!

The little foxy suite is one of the cutest collections, in my opinion, we've ever carried! I love it so much, I feel it deserves a special class.

Flourish Thinlits Meet Serene Scenery


Have you noticed the Serene Scenes paper stack in the new catalogue? It is so beautiful and fun to play with. One side has realistic prints (weave, sweater, sky, bokeh-look, dandelions in a field, etc.) and the other is regular patterned paper. As soon as I saw it, I knew it would be part of the Bingo gifts at June's Stampin' Bingo. I really wanted to give everyone a few ideas on how it could be used.

This first card was one of the make and takes. I combined it with the Flourish Thinlits and the Designer Tin of Cards stamp set. Simple but beautiful!


This next project is a little gift card holder and envelope. It was created using the same basic supplies. I just love these flourish thinlits, the detail in them is amazing!


I love how this paper is softer in some areas and more bold in others. It really beautiful!


I will back next week to share a few more samples of projects created using this Serene Scenery paper stack.

Have a creative day!
