Catching Up

It’s been a while…

I’ve not been at all well for most of April actually. I had a cold that wouldn’t go and then my asthma started playing uo big time and then just to add insult to injury, I got bronchitis. Talk about things coming in threes

How come nothing nice comes in threes?

So this is a catch up post since I’ve neglected a few design team posts.

Papermill Direct.

Papermill have some new offers which you can see on their offers page on the website. Firstly these wonderful cream C6 envelopes are half price at £2.75 for 50 – total bargain, they feel lovely.

I made mine fit for Easter by stamping and colouring on them. I used Derwent Coloursoft pencils so I didn’t have any bleed through issues.

Rich Cream PMD envelopes 2

And also on offer is some smooth white paper – perfect to go in the envelopes perhaps?

I made a note pad with the paper using some Nautical printables from Sonya DeHart on etsy.

Crafting by Designs

New challenge started on Wednesday at Crafting by Designs and the theme is Asia.

We are sponsored by Nicecrane Designs and I have used the Geisha Volume 1 set to make the quick and easy, but super pretty gift tags

Feeling the Blues

Well.. teals…

Do you ever just get in the mood to use a certain colour? This weekend has been teal weekend.

Lisa Sumpter papercraftbliss ruff card 2014

This fun card was made using same of the elements and cards from the Simple Stories Sn@p collection. Super cute amd since I have a little dog myself, I snapped it up when I saw it.

I’ve also used Papermill Direct ocean blue card as my card base. It’s one of my favourite colours of theirs.

I made this teal ombre card using one of the digi papers by Pink Petticoat

The stamps are by Personal Impressions and the sequins are from Lawn Fawn.

I used Papermill Direct plain white and black card for this card.


Papermill Direct Offer

The team at Papermill Direct have another fab offer for you this week. Some lovely smooth ivory card. You can get a small box of approx 80 sheets for just £4.00!

I’ve used it to make an Easter card.

Lisa Sumpter PMD Easter Card with Ivory Offer card 2014 papercraftbliss

It’s perfect for inking on as I have with distress inks. Ivory card gives your projects a more warm feeling than if you’re using plain white so along with the blue sky, the scene feels warmer, as if the sun is shining somewhere.

I used my Silhouette Portrait to cut out the cross and shroud, the hill and the tufts of grass.

You can see more offers on the Papermill Direct offers page.
