Sentimental Swirls Blog Hop - Pootlers Team

 Hi Everyone,

Today it's another Pootlers Team Blog Hop, this time in honour of the Chief Pootler Sam Hammond Donald and her new stamp set - Sentimental Swirls which she has helped to design as the 1st UK Million Dollar Achiever. An amazing achievement and a great stamp set.


1 piece of gorgeous grape card stock 5 7/8" x 8 1/4", scraps for the letters
1 piece of Simply Marbleous dsp 3 7/8" x 5 5/8", strip 1/2" x 5 5/8"
1 piece of basic white 3 7/8" x 5 5/8", 1 piece 3 1/3" x 4 1/2"
Sentimental Swirls stamp set
Gorgeous grape ink
Highland Heather ink
Fresh Freesia ink
Fresh Freesia Stampin' Blends
Playful Alphabet dies
Scalloped Contour dies
Stampin' Cut and Emboss Machine
Basic Rhinestones
Bone Folder
Multipurpose adhesive


On the long side score the gorgeous grape card at 4 1/8" and fold and burnish to make the card base.

Use the swirl and the small flower and butterfly to randomly stamp a design on the paler side of the designer series paper using gorgeous grape ink. Adhere to the card front.

Die cut the 2nd largest rectangle from the Scalloped Contour dies in basic white and the 3 letters from the gorgeous grape scraps.

Stamp the swirl using highland heather ink on the rectangle and then add in some of the outlines for the small flowers in fresh freesia. I've then coloured them in using Stampin' Blends.  Stamp the sentiment in highland heather and then adhere the letters in place underneath the sentiment.  Adhere to the card front, at an angle, using dimensionals.

Add rhinestones to the centre of all the flowers that are visible on the mat layer as well as the dsp layer.

Add the remaining strip of dsp (darker, swirly side, to the right hand side of the remaining basic white card and then adhere to the inside of the card.

Quick and easy card to celebrate Sam's success, please pop over and see what my talented team mates have made too.
