I started gently ink blending the inks onto the card front until my colour was built up. I adhered this onto my card base. Using another piece of White Card Super Smooth 250gsm I die cut the trees and adhered to the card with some PVA glue.

I love you!

Hello there,

I’m so excited to be sharing my first card and blog post for Magengo today.

I’m super excited to be joining this amazing team and I can’t wait to share my card with you! I hope you feel inspired to create a valentines card using this brand new release.

I have used the Our special moments stamps and they are just adorable! I love how easy it is to print these out and colour. They are also packed with images that are all beautiful. You can see all the beautiful stamps and cutting files at the Magengo store.

I couldn’t pick a favourite so I used these adorable bears and flowers. I coloured the images in with my copic markers and then trimmed them out. I really wanted to make a cute scene so I ink blended the background with distress ink (spun sugar) and added some cloud and grass using dies. I then die cut a tree and leaves and adhered these down onto my card. Once all these parts were completed I adhered the bears down onto my card.


To finish the card off I added a few hearts to the cloud and also a sun. I then heat embossed the sentiment with white embossing powder before trimming the sentiment down and adhering to my card.

Thank you so much for stopping by today!

Floral hello card (Pantone 2020)

Hello there I’m up on the papermilldirect blog today.

I have a different kind of floral card for you today.

If you follow Pantone they have said that the colour for 2020 is classic blue so I’ve used some gorgeous Blu Sirio for this card.

To make this card you will need:

You will also need:

To make my card base I trimmed down a piece of Perla Sirio Colour Card 290gsm and scored in half. I then trimmed down a smaller pice of the Blu Sirio Colour Card 290gsm that’s smaller than the card base. I then embossed some stripes and adhered this to the card base.

Next I used some Sage Sirio Pearl Double Sided Card 300gsm and using some leaf dies I die cut some leaves out and placed them aside.

I then used a piece of White Card Super Smooth 250gsm to stamp the flowers onto. I coloured them in with my spectrum noir markers and trimmed them out. 

I then adhered the leaves and flowers across the middle of the card using foam tape.

Next I die cut the word hello using some Orchid Double Sided Pearlised Card 300gsm. I adhered this to my card using PVA glue.

To finish off the card I added some clear drops. 

What do you think of Pantone’s colour for 2020? I personally love the colour of papermilldirect’s Blu Sirio Colour Card 290gsm. Its a great colour for masculine cards too.

Thanks for stopping by today!
