Single Snowflake

Good Morning!

When it comes to bulk card making as we do at Christmas time, a simple design makes the process so much easier.

This is clean, simple but still striking.

I started with a Whisper White card base and card layer.

From the Snowflake Sentiments set, I stamped the largest snowflake with Night of Navy ink on to a scrap of white card stock.

This was cut with a Stitched Circle die and layered on to a scalloped circle cut from Night of Navy card stock.

The circles were mounted on to a white scalloped square and adhered to the card with dimensional.

The sentiment was stamped underneath and a rhinestone added to the snowflake centre.

I hope you enjoyed this project. The supplies used are listed and linked below.

Free shipping is available on all orders for 24 hours, beginning at 11pm Sunday 26th November through til 11.59pm on Monday 27th November.

White card layers were wrapped with ribbon of various types; Real Red Solid ribbon, Mini Tinsel Trim and Tranquil Tide Finely Woven ribbon.

Falling Snowflakes #GDP114

Hi there,

It is a Sketch Challenge over at the Global Design Project this week!

Click here to see what the Design Team created to inspire us!

This card started with making the window frame. After rummaging in my scraps box, I found a piece of Perfect Plum card stock…. Not a colour I use a lot of… So I went with that.

The apertures were cut with the smallest Layering Square die, carefully spacing them as I went.

Somewhere along the line, I decided to use snowflakes within the apertures, so I pulled out Snowflake Sentiments and the matching dies.

I cut the snowflakes, layered them together and added a rhinestone and allowed them to dry.

I stamped the card layer with snowflakes using Wisteria Wonder, stamped off once.

The sentiment was stamped using Elegant Eggplant ink. White sheer ribbon was added to the bottom.

The window frame was adhered with some multipurpose glue. The die cut snowflakes were then added to each aperture.

 

I hope you enjoyed this project.

Oh Christmas Tree

Hi there,

Today’s project is a simple card that is easy to mass produce. Christmas is a time when we need lots of cards so lets make it easy.

I have used the Season Like Christmas set.

The tree was stamped in Pear Pizzazz and Garden Green ink, with Early Espresso for the trunk. A touch of Soft Sky was added at the base.

The panel was trimmed down to create a deep border from the edge of the card, (I have used a conveniently sized scrap). A slightly larger piece of Cherry Cobbler lifted this from the background.

For some extra festivity, I added some silver tinsel trim behind the panel. I decided not to use a sentiment, the card speaks for itself.

This combo screamed Christmas!

I have used the Good Tidings stamp set to make a background. The layers are stamped with same colour ink, but the first was stamped off to give a lighter shade. This was mounted on to Cherry Cobbler card stock and then on to a Pool Party card base.

The sentiment, I stamped in Pear Pizzazz and used the Layering Square framelit to cut it out.

Finally, this was added to a Pol Party Scalloped square, and the on to the card with dimensionals.

Many Marvellous Markers

Good Morning Everybody,

Today’s project is a special thank you to my fab upline Sam Hammond …. Not only does she love rainbows, but I have used the Many Marvellous Marker collection which I only have because of her amazing generosity.

I have used the “acrylic block technique” to make this colourful background.

By adding ink from the stampin’ write markers on to the block, lightly spritzing with water and then stamping this on to watercolour paper – that’s it!

Leave it to dry and then cut it to size.

The stampin’ write markers can be used for stamping too! The sentiment from All Things Thanks was coloured with three markers, Smoky Slate, Basic Grey and Basic Black for a gradient effect.

I finished the card with black bakers twine and rhinestones.

I hope you enjoyed this project. To get your hands on these marvellous products click the links below.

What an amazing weekend! Becoming a Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator was the best decision ever.

Yesterday was a team day put together by my upline Sam Hammond and Caroline Helwigh.

During the day, we had the opportunity to work with the Half Full stamp set.

I made three cards in the time we had… including a Christmas card with not a wine glass in sight!

The images were coloured using blender pens and ink. I can’t wait to try watercolour pencils and Stampin’ Blends with this set too!

Once coloured, the images were layered up and simply attached to card bases.

For Mum

Good Morning!

I made this card especially for my mother-in-law’s birthday last weekend.

I used the beautiful Stampin’ Blends to colour the rose image. The darkest shades of Cherry Cobbler were used in the centre, gradually blending in the lighter shades of Calypso Coral towards the edges.

The leaves were coloured with Old Olive markers. The dark shade was added along the veins of the leaves and then blended with the light marker.

The dies were used to cut a black outline image and the sentiment.

The fine tip glue pen was used to adhere the delicate outline. The sentiment was raised on dimensionals. The panel was added to a Calypso Coral card base.

Happy Birthday to You

Good Morning,

I discovered the Happy Celebrations stamp set had this great bold lettering perfect for some Stampin’ Blend colouring!

I stamped the sentiment on to a scrap of Whisper White card stock using Tuxedo Black Memento ink.

Once completely dry, I used Rich Razzleberry Stampin’ Blend markers the colour the image. To achieve this, each letter was coloured individually, starting with the lightest shade. The dark marker was used at the bottom, and blended out to the top with the light marker.

The coloured panel was adhered to a piece of vellum with Fast Fuse adhesive.

The card base was made with Rich Razzleberry card stock. A piece of striped paper from the Birthday Memories designer series paper collection was chosen as the background.

The sentiment was added to the card with dimensionals and some rhinestones provided a bit of sparkle.

Inspire.Create.Challenge #004

Hi there,

The Inspire.Create.Challenge this week is a colour challenge. See what the design team created here

This is my project.

I have used Painted Harvest to make my card.

I started by experimenting with the blue inks. I wasn’t sure that they would go together, but the result was beautiful.

I decided to keep the accompanying leaves plain white.

The sentiment was stamped in Flirty Flamingo and cut with my favourite Starburst punch. I also punched some Flirty Flamingo card stock to lie underneath.

I used a Whisper White card base and added layers of Island Indigo and Calypso Coral.

The white layer was stamped with foliage from the set using both Island Indigo and Soft Sky inks.

Some Flirty Flamingo Striped Grosgrain ribbon was added across the middle. The sentiment and flower were added with dimensionals.
