April / May 2019 Reveal, Design Team Blog Hop & GIVEAWAY!

April / May 2019 Reveal, Design Team Blog Hop & GIVEAWAY!


Finally the day has arrived and the April / May 2019 Reveal, Blog Hop & GIVEAWAY is here! The Release will be available to purchase HERE at a NEW time of 9pm GMT tonight.

Hopefully you have hopped on over from HERE, where I have formally introduced the 4 new Clear Stamp Set designs, 2 coordinating Designer Die collections AND 1 Stencil Design being released.

I’ve made a couple more cards using the new products, not as many as I had hoped to make, but I do feel I am getting back into the creative groove again…


My first card uses the Designer Dies English Country Garden Butterflies. I’ve been wanting to pair the butterfly with the Large French Script Background for ages and it seemed the perfect time now I had the dies to match. They give such a love clean cut edge compared to fussy cutting!


I still have a thing for shades of grey! Hence my colour scheme, though I did add in a little hint of aqua for the butterfly body and some Nuvo Drop detail. The Happy Birthday sentiment is from Birthday Sentiments, which is now back in stock.

My last card today was inspired by a couple of things. Firstly the Double Challenge over at CAS Colours & Sketches seen HERE and below.

double 319

And secondly by Jenny’s card HERE our Guest Designer for this release. I just loved how Jenny thought to cut up the Background Block Mid Century Modern II. So I did the same, this time using it for the top and bottom border in the sketch.


I simply stamped the Background Block Mid Century Modern II in black and coloured the outline sections with the closest colours to the challenge as I had. I then got to fussy cutting the sections out and adhered them to my card base using some new Gina K Connect Glue – LOVE! Thanks for the recommendation Lynda 😉


The sentiment is another from Birthday Sentiments and I’ve accented it with a flower from Mid Century Modern Florals and some of my favourite Gloss White Nuvo Drops!

That’s all from me today, but as usual we have our traditional Design Team Blog Hop & Giveaway. To be in the chance of winning The ENTIRE April / May 2019 Release! (4 clear stamp sets, 2 previously released clear stamp sets, 2 co-ordinating designer die collections & 1 stencil design).

Simply comment along the blog hop, it’s as easy as that! You have until Midnight Sunday 12th May 2019. Winner will be announced a few days after.

Happy Hopping!

    Two super cards Bev. The butterfly teams so well with the background script and I love how you used the background block stamp to make a border xx

    They are awesome, Bev ! I love the pairing of the butterfly with the Script background, they match so well together. Your grey stamping with few teal touches make a beautiful masculine card. Love it ! I also thought about making a card for CAS colours & Sketches but it was focused on the Mid Century Modern Floral and didn’t manage to something I liked. But you did ! It’s just perfect : clean and simple ! Thanks so much for this fabulous release and now get prepared for packaging all the orders it’s going to generate on the website and at the festival !! Hugs xx

    These are great designs Bev, love the bumpy border in those colours and the splash of colour on your monochromatic butterfly card. I’ve loved showcasing the new release… it was just my style and I picked up some creative ideas along he way too . Thank you 😊

    Love both cards, but especially the butterfly. The restrained colour scheme really makes the image spring to life.

    Gorgeous cards, Bev. Your first card is so pretty with the neutral colours and the pop of aqua. The butterfly and the scripty background do go so well together. And I love how you’ve mixed and match products on your second and delightfully CAS card. Such a fun and clever use of the background block stamp.
