It doesn't always have to be white

Hi all, with my house in decorating chaos and my scrapbooking supplies here, there and everywhere it was a bit of a struggle trying to find everything I wanted for this project.

My friend Irene is getting married in just over three weeks, and I'm making some of the bits for her (tiara, table plan, place cards etc.) so I wanted to keep her burgundy colour scheme going in the card I've made for their special day.

Using the incredibly versatile Scribble Sentiments for the wording both on the cover and inside, I also added a flourish from Fancy Flourishes and the heart came from the Made with Love and Laughter set. I used a silver ink pad for all the stamping and the edges. Along with some pearlised hearts, silver ribbon, a fantastic Fiskars Threading Water punch and.... ta da! Ok the fanfare might be a teeny bit over the top, but I hope you can see the possibilities with this design. Happy stamping people.


  1. very pretty Sam, like the idea of just 2 colours. looks very elegant

  2. Sam, this is so pretty. Love the alternative colour. Light on dark shows the stamps off beautifuly. Jayne x

3 and counting....

We’re at the 3rd trade show.... this year !!!!!!
To say I’m tired is an understatement, but there’s something about the shows plus adrenaline that just keeps you going.
There’s nothing better than teaching people new techniques and that’s what these shows are all about. That and having fun of course !!!
We’re all set up...this is the calm before the storm ;) we have so many new things to show this year, it makes it all the more exciting.
One of the best things about trade show shows is meeting up with buddies in the industry and even though I see Leandra and Mark (PaperArtsy) every week (we quiz together) it was great to go out with them last night.

Richard and Mark look like they’re praying, when in fact they were having a bald off 不不不不 Steve has more hair than both of them put together so as a gesture of kindness he hid his. 不不不不不  It’s now 6am, I’m ready to jump in the shower and get this day started... think of me standing from 8am to 6pm.... I hope you get to sit a lot m…

One for the Mums ...

In celebration of the fabulous Catherine Pooler Inks about to hit the store, I thought I'd pop a little card on here. Take a folded card base, I always make mine from card stock, then I know the piece on top is going to match perfectly. then cut a smaller piece and perforate the edges, you can use a perforating blade, if your trimmer has one, or there are many dies out there that do this in a snip ! Using the WOW! Embossing Powder Layered Hearts Stamps, I inked up and stamped using the Catherine Pooler Daydream, Aquatini and Skylight Inks.
Embellish with a Uni Ball Signo White Gel Pen, one of my favourites !!!
Finish off with the Mothers day sentiment from the WOW! Embossing Powder Everyday Sentiment Stamps, inked in Versafine Onyx Black, adhere with foam pads. Check out PAPERBOX for a great selection  of card stock. Thanks for looking
