Healing Hugs is such a versatile stamp set and I love this classic blackberry bliss and gray granite colour combination.
The copper accents work so well with the rich colour of the flowers. I’m so happy that those gorgeous leaves trinkets and the Nature’s Twine have carried over to the new Annual catalogue.
Such a simple but elegant design that came together quickly – Stampin’ Up! coordination at its finest xx
This week is all about Christmas tags, and these ones are super cute and easy to put together. I love the stitched shapes framelits dies and how gorgeous these square ones look layered up together.
Although I stayed with a merry merlot/tranquil tide and copper theme throughout, I absolutely love the design break with the buffalo check background stamp. So beautiful, why did I wait so long to use it?!
Having made 6 gorgeous tags, I just had to make a matching box to hold them all in!

My family love Merci chocolates so I thought I would create some pretty treat holders as table decorations for Christmas Day.
As you know I am totally in love with the limited edition Snowfall Thinlits dies (only available to purchase until the end of November) as well as copper foil, so these treat holders make me happy!!
I also thought they could make for beautiful wedding favours and they couldn’t be easier to make.

Coastal Cabana Classic Stampin’ Pad
Little Maisy turns 2 today, and Follow your Dreams is the perfect bundle for any little girl. I have always loved dream catchers and the idea that they keep you safe and catch all the bad dreams for you.
I decided to go with ‘dream big, wish big’ as it is a birthday card and gift box set after all, and the copper foil and sequins add the perfect amount of lift and sparkle.
I normally struggle to use calypso coral as a colour, but I chose it as its the boldest colour in the iridescent sequins. It’s hard to appreciate from the photos, but the sequins are so pretty. I would never put these colours together myself, but they actually work so well together. Happy 2nd Birthday Maisy xx
I posted a variation of this card a while back using the main colours from the Joyous Noel Suite (https://stampingwithlove.net/2018/08/31/joyous-noel-detailed-deer-sneak-peek). Today I’m posting the same card in a very different colourway – gray granite and soft suede.
I would never have thought to put these colours together had I not been taking them from the stunning Joyous Noel DSP, but I absolutely love the colour combination on this card. So sophisticated and Christmassy in its own right, and no red or green in sight!
I coloured a few rhinestones in soft suede with my Stampin’ Blends. This DSP is so elegant and rich, and the copper foiling adds glamour without overpowering everything else. You really need to see it with your own eyes to appreciate it -love, love, love.
The Springtime Impressions Thinlits Dies are so beautiful and intricate.
For my first play, I decided to watercolour the large floral die cut. My watercolouring is a bit rusty, but the result was still pretty on the watercolour paper. This paper is pricier than some, but has a gorgeous thick textured finished which is so elegant, especially for special occasions.
I adhered my floral die cut onto more watercolour card and added the copper foiled butterfly with mini dimensionals. I just love the richness of the copper foil, and am a little copper obsessed lately as you’ll see from my upcoming projects!
I brushed over the floral die cut with wink of stella once it was dry. What do you think of the colour combo? I quite like the mix of the fresh soft sea foam and coastal cabana with the rich gorgeous grape and fresh fig xx
I love big bold sentiments and the font and size of the Christmas sentiments in Watercolor Christmas are no exception. This stamp set is perfect for quick Christmas crafting. I chose to pair rich deep colours with crumb cake cardstock for these cards – cherry cobbler, fresh fig, tranquil tide and night of navy. I stamped the sentiment onto an oval, die cut using the stitched shape framelits dies and added some copper foil Christmas mistletoe cut using the Pretty Pines Thinlits Dies with some copper washi tape from my stash and ribbon to match the card bases. I also embossed my card front with the Softly Falling embossing folder to add to the Christmassy vibe, and attached to a copper foil mat.
