Royal Wedding Inspired


Yesterday we saw Prince Harry and Meghan Markle tie the knot and many tuned into the spectacular event.  Comments were made about the various outfits donned for the special occasion and the queen was no exception in her Lemon/Lime outfit with purple accents.  I couldn’t resist creating a card using these colour tones as it is the perfect spring colour palette.

Screen Shot 2018-05-20 at 13.23.28

The outside was stamped using Concord & 9th’s Wreath Turnabout (and I have to say this is super easy to use!) along with inks from the Aladine IZINK range – full list of supplies below.  A window was created and then the other wreath stamp option used on the inside with Memento inks and Aladine Embossing powders.



Once the card was closed it gave a peak of the message inside.


I hope you found inspiration from all the fashionable outfits worn to the big day too!


Supplies used in this project:-

Concord & 9th Wreath Turnabout Stamp Set, Izink Dye inks Cassis & Verveine, Pigment inks Lemon, Light Pink & Violet.IZINK Embossing Powder Relief Geranium, WOW Embossing Pad,  Memento New Sprout, Angel Pink & Lulu Lavender dye inks & Spellbinders reverse scallop nesting die.


Concord & 9th Playdate

I was so excited when Concord & 9th agreed to hop with the design team at Chameleon Art Products, their stamps and dies are the perfect match to Chameleon pens and pencils.  Once my stamps and dies arrived, I just couldn’t stop creating!

I wanted to create something to pay forward, so created this mantra poster for my Yoga teacher.


It was her personal saying to live by, I used my laser printer to print the mantra and then foiled using my Heidi Swapp machine.  I then stamped the Hello Lovely floral stamp around the edge of the page using Memento Tuxedo Black ink and then Coloured using my Chameleon pens and Color Tops.  The finished poster was then mounted onto patterned paper from DCWV.

Materials used:  Chameleon Pens; Mellow Yellow, Spring Meadow, Dark Sage, Green Apple, Cornflower Blue, Peony Pink & Tangerine, Chameleon Color Tops; Lavender & Fuchsia. Concord & 9th Hello Lovely Stamp set, Heidi Swap Gold Foil, Anne-Marie Printing cardstock, Memento Tuxedo Black ink, DCWV Paper Plants Stack.

Thanks for visiting me today, I hope you enjoyed hopping with Chameleon and Me!

Lawn Fawn Fun

I was so excited to learn that Imagine Crafts/Tsukineko would be doing a swap with Lawn Fawn, they have such cute critters I couldn’t resist creating this card.

IMG_1109I just love the snow effect that you can achieve using the IrResistible Texture Spray Wedding Dress, it works so well with the Memento Inks.

There is also a little video showing how this card came to life and a bonus showing the decorated inside too!

It’s a Memory Box Kind of Day.

Life has been so crazy that I have only just found time to post this Christmas card using the amazing Imagine Craft/Tsukineko and Memory Box Products! I wanted to make the inside just as special as the outside as you can see here.
