Designer Series Paper, Farewell, Handmade Cards, Masculine, Stampin' Up!

Earthy tones for a Masculine card

Hello Friends,

My project today is a Masculine Farewell card using the Wood Textures Designer Paper, Painted Harvest stamp set and the Seasonal Layers thinlits.

I initially had the Lemon Lime Twist panel on the left plain, but then i decided to stamp those little acorns and I think it looks great. I also stamped one on the envelope!

The sentiment was printed using my computer, but look at that detail in the Wood Textures DSP?!!! It has so much detail and it looks so real! I love these detailed leaves too.

On the inside of the card I used some of the Year of Cheer Specialty Washi Tape and a small piece of the Wood Textures DSP.

Masculine Farewell using Wood Textures DSP & Seasonal Layers Thinlits

Hello Friends,

My project today features the gorgeous Wood Textures DSP and isn’t it stunning?!!

I was asked to make quite a few masculine farewell cards and this is a style that I struggle with immensely, but I actually love this. I saw a similar card by Jo Anne Hewins on Pinterest and went from there.

She believed she could… so she did!

Hello Friends,

I have only used the Pink Pirouette Combo pack of blends markers ($15.50) for this card to colour and blend the pig. Such great value! I did add some Wink of Stella to her wings though for a little extra sparkle!!!

Farewell, Stampin' Up!, Sympathy

Sympathy for a beloved pet

Hello Friends,

My project today is with a touch of sadness for a teacher colleague who lost her beloved best friend during the recent school holidays 😦

This is the card I made for her, in the hope that it may bring some comfort and lasting memories of her loved, Becks (named after David Beckham)!

He was a little white fella, so I obviously had to use the Bella & Friends stamp set. I stamped the image in black ink and then used my blender pen with some smoky slate ink to add some highlighting. Of course I needed to add a red collar with the red heart with a touch of Wink of Stella on top!

My card base is Chocolate Chip with a layer of Lemon Lime Twist, then White. The floral image is stamped with Lemon Lime Twist on the front and the inside panel is stamped off once before stamping on the card.

Hello Friends,

My project today uses the Painted Harvest stamp set to create a Farewell card.

The base card is Night of Navy and the flowers are stamped in Night of Navy, Dapper Denim and Pool Party. The centre of the flowers are stamped with Soft Suede. The leaves are Pear Pizzazz.

I also stamped the flower and leaves on the inside of the card.

The sentiment was created on the computer and printed in Night of Navy using the RGB codes and I used the retired Word Window punch (still a favourite).

The gingham ribbon gives that country look, but still coordinating with the flowers!

Botanical Blooms

Dear Crafters,

Check out today’s multi-layered card. I don’t usually add so many layers, but I was very happy with how this one turned out!

I was asked to make a few Farewell cards for my workplace, and this was one of them.

Botanical Builder Framelits, Love Blossoms DSP, Farewell Handmade Card, DIY,  #stampinup

The card base is Blushing Bride with a layer of the Love Blossom Designer Series Paper.

I embossed the Sahara Sand Banner with the Softly Falling Textured Impressions Embossing Folder and layered it on a piece of Rose Red card stock which I scored a 1/4″ border around the edge.

I used the Botanical Blooms Framelits Dies for all the blooms and foliage (Blushing Bride, Rose Red, So Saffron, Mossy Meadow, Pear Pizzazz, Whisper White & Love Blossoms DSP).

The Blushing Bride Satin ribbon was tied in a bow and finishes off this stunning card (if I do say so myself lol).

The Journey Begins

Dear Crafters,

Well, we come to the end of another year. Personally I am glad it is over, even though it went so fast, but it was not one of my best years with a broken ankle and many deaths in the family. Here’s hoping that 2016 will be much brighter and happier xxx

I love new products and today is no exception. As a Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator, we have early access to brand new products from the Occasions catalogue and Sale-a-bration brochure which go live on 5th January 2016! Here is a project using the Beautiful Ride stamp set.

Beautiful Ride VW Bug #stampinup

I thought this was a perfect card as our Journey Begins leading into a brand new year of 2016!

I stamped the images onto watercolour paper with Memento black ink and used the Aqua Painter brush and inkpads to colour.

Colours I’ve used are: Marina Mist, Mossy Meadow, Crushed Curry, Smoky Slate and Tangelo Twist.

How cute is the little puppy looking out the window?!!!

Beautiful Ride VW Bug #stampinup

Many years ago, the Volkswagon Beetle was my first ever car and when I saw this stamp set in the catalogue, I knew I just had to have it!

I would like to end by wishing everyone a very happy, healthy and crafty 2016!

HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!
