Welcome to the Stamping Society July Blog Hop! This month we are featuring the gorgeous Beautiful Friendship stamp set.
Let’s get straight to the card shall we?
You know sometimes you just can’t get the balance right on a card? Well that happened to me while creating this card. So, instead of moving layers around and trying to add more bling and embellishments, I trimmed my card width down. I took 1.5cm off the width. So my finished card is 9cm x 13cm. Soooo much happier with the balance now. You might like to try it next time too.
The colours I’ve used are Blushing Bride, Rococo Rose, Bermuda Bay, Pool Party and Old Olive Inks. Rococo Rose, Bermuda Bay and Pool Party Card.
I tend to also forget about our other embellishments like these cute little clips. I’m on a quest this year to use embellishments outside my comfort zone!

Stampin’ Up! Seaside Notions is one of those stamp sets that could easily pass you by, but don’t let it!
As I’m getting ready to head off on the Stampin’ Up! Incentive Trip next week, I cased my card this week for Linc n Learn. I’ve cased Nadine Weiner, I did add some more bling, and also created another in a second colour.
The images are stamped with Early Espresso, and coloured with Stampin’ Blends. This works because the Early Espresso (and all the other colours) are waterbased, and the Blends are alcohol! Perfect right?
I’ve used Calypso Coral, Balmy Blue, Crumb Cake, Soft Suede and Ivory. The label is from the new Wild Rose Die set.
One thing, the images do need to be fussy cut 🙂
If you have any questions about the cards, please feel free to contact me.
I have boxes and boxes of retired bits and bobs! DSP, Ribbons, Embellishments etc so I thought I’d do up some Lucky Dip Bags to give away with your orders!
Each bag contains a variety of my retired product. They all include DSP, and may contain ribbons, embellishments, left over kits, Memories and More etc. Some products are part packs, some are brand new. All DSP has been cut to 6″x12″ to fit in the envelopes. Bags do not contain Stamp Sets or Big Shot items.
To be eligible for a Lucky Dip Bag, place an order of $100 before shipping with me. All I’m asking is that you pay for the 1kg post satchel which is $11.55. If you’d like the Lucky Dip Bag, I’ll paypal you an invoice for the post bag. Contents of the Lucky Dip Bag are yours for FREE. Spend $200 and you’re eligible for 2 bags etc. I’ll adjust the cost of the post satchel accordingly. A 3Kg bag is $14.55, so you could spend $300 and get 3 Lucky Dip Bags!
At the moment, I’ll have the bags until sold out. Australian residents only.
If you have any questions, please feel free to email me 🙂
It’s time for another Design it with DSP Blog Hop!! Only we’ve had a name change. We are now called Pretty Cards & Paper!!
I am so excited to share projects with you from demonstrator friends around the world all using the Bird Ballad Designer Series Paper. I am honored to be a part of this design team and love that we can all share projects using the same DSP. Make sure to check out all the blogs (list at the bottom) and enjoy these projects from around the world.
I love it when DSP has big colourful images that you can cut out and use in your cards. Which is exactly what I’ve done with my card.
I cut out the largest die from the Stitched Nested Labels Dies from Whisper White card, and sponged Pool Party over the mid section, and let the colour fade out. I then flicked water from my Aquapainter over the top, it dissolves the ink and leaves little white dots.
I then cut out and extra label shape from the reverse side of the Bird pattern and layered it behind. I finished off with Wink of Stella on the flowers and the bird.
It’s time to see what the rest of the Design Team has made using the Bird Ballad DSP. Make sure to visit everyone to see all the fun things you can do with this paper.

I loved the Beautiful Friendship stamp set as soon as I saw it in the new catalogue. It’s great for just filling up your white card with loads of beautiful colour flowers.
And of course, having been made at Linc n Learn, I have another colour variation for you.
The colour combination I’ve used here is Blushing Bride, Rococo Rose, Seaside Spray and Pretty Peacock. First go at inking up the Seaside Spray and Pretty Peacock. The SS is so nice and works really well with the Rococo Rose.
I did a Facebook Live to show how I created the card, but once again, the comments wouldn’t come through.
Just a reminder about Stamp by Mail – I’m still waiting for my cardstock order to arrive, so I’m leaving it open until it does arrive. You won’t have long to sign up tho – VISIT THIS POST TO SEE MORE
