Springtime Impressions

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

Totally Trees – Sneak Peek 


Totally Trees is another fantastic stamp set available from the brand new Autumn/Winter catalogue, out on 1st September, and I love this contemporary take on the Christmas tree.

I adore the simplicity of this card, and it’s difficult to convey in picture, the beautiful effect of the copper heat embossed insides of the trees.


I embossed the card front by running it through my Big Shot with the Softly Falling embossing folder. Next, I stamped the green tree tops in garden green ink, and then copper embossed the framework of the tree over the top of this.  Finally, I brushed clear wink of Stella over the tree tops before fussy cutting them out.

I wrapped a piece or burlap ribbon over the lower part of my card panel before I adhered the central tree flat, and raised the trees on either side by adhering them with dimensionals.


To finish, I copper embossed the sentiment from Oh What Fun stamp set on some whisper white cardstock, and cut a banner using the Triple Banner Punch, before sponging the edge in garden green ink, adhering with dimensionals, and placing three basic rhinestones for a little sparkle 🎄🎄🎄
