Stampin' Up

Limiting your colour range with Grace’s Garden

Limiting your range of colours can make a striking card, something I often do if I want a sentiment or image to really stand out. In this simple three colour card I’ve use the stamp set Grace’s Garden stamp set as my basis, but created interest by adding layers.

Grace's Garden Stamp Set Card

I started off with a simple white folded card to which I added a layer of Peony Garden designer series paper. This single colour design of large flowers provides a background for another white layer, a piece made using the Stitched Rectangles dies.

In this card I’ve matched the colour of the patterned paper by stamping in Basic Grey ink, before colouring using the Melon Mabo blend and a little bit of Wink of Stella for added sparkle.

It’s all tied up with a bow made using the Polka Dot Toile Ribbon and some pearl embellishments finish it off.

Pop back later this week  as I’ll be showing you a range of cards that can be make using Grace’s Garden, a real treat for Spring cards!

Using Write Markers for a simple multicoloured card

Following on from my video where I showed you how to make the Worlds most simple card, I thought I would show you another of my favourite tricks with the Stampin’ Up! Write Markers.

The Write Markers are so versatile and easy to use and great for anyone just starting out. In my video I’ll show you how you can use them to stamp in multiple colours all at once – a very neat trick!

One of my beginner tricks (and I still do it now!) is to use a piece of card for the ‘front’ of my folded card. It means if it goes very wrong I’ve not wasted a whole piece. 

I love ribbon and adding a knot or bow is an easy way to add a bit of cheerfulness to a card.

What do you think of my trick, cool isn’t it?

I’d love to see what you’ve made, or if you’d like to have a go get in touch – I’m currently offering Classes by Zoom!
