Sneak Peek: Petal Palette Bundle

Dear Crafters,

With Christmas now over for another year, it’s not long before we celebrate the start of 2018 and that means Sale-a-bration and the release of the Occasions catalogue!

Today I am sharing the Petal Palette stamp set and the coordinating Petals & More Thinlits dies, available as a bundle saving you 10%. But this Petal Passion Suite is so much more… there are metal embellishments, black & white Designer Series Paper (perfect for colouring) & Petal Pair Textured Embossing Folders, that all coordinate!

You can see I have used the Petal Pair Textured Impressions Embossing Folders above in the background, as well as the stamp set and the thinlits dies. There are also some lovely sentiments in this stamp set, so you won’t be disappointed.

On the inside of the card, I just placed some of the smaller die cuts in the corner.

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.

Thoughtful Branches, Beautiful Branches, Sympathy card #stampinup DIY @cardsbykate

This first one is a sympathy card that I made for a work colleague who lost her father last week following a short illness. I wanted to make it feminine but also added some Dapper Denim in memory of her dad!

How sweet is the little bird? I love that!

I decorated the inside of the card and the envelope to match!

This next card is amazingly using the same stamp set and just shows the versatility of this bundle. A Christmas card using the gorgeous Emerald Envy and Cherry Cobbler.

This card was looking a little plain and needed something else, so I added the twine bow to finish the card. It was just what it needed. I love this sentiment too!

Flowers, Stampin' Up!, Sympathy

Flourish with Sympathy

Dear Crafters,

You know those sad occasions when you need to send someone a sympathy card and you don’t have some already made? Well today I have made one for that very day when unfortunately we need one.

This card is white with Rich Razzleberry and what a stunner colour combination!

IMG_5814

I love all the textures in this card, from the Petal Burst embossed background, to the Flourish Framelit to the Pansy and Petite Petals flower.

I also added some of the new Copper Metallic thread behind the Pansy, not sure if you can see it, as it is so fine.

Basket For You

Dear Crafters,

Tell me, who doesn’t love flowers? said no one ever!

Today’s card uses the Hostess Set, Basket For You. I have to admit, I didn’t really look twice at this set until I saw a card by one of my downline, Kimberly, who made a stunning card with this set.

Basket For You, Petal Burst TIEF, #stampinup, DIY,  2016, #stampinupaustralia, Feminine Handmade Card

I started by embossing the Flirty Flamingo card with the Petal Burst Textured Impression Embossing folder. Next I stamped the basket image and coloured it with the new 2016-2018 Stampin’ Write Markers and the basket was watercoloured using the Aquapainter.

I used the oval framelits for the main image (and paper pierced the edge) and deco label framelits to die cut the Peach behind it. These were adhered with dimensionals. The sentiment was cut out with paper snips!

I even stamped a small flower on the inside of the card and on the envelope (which I forgot to put in the photo!) oops.

Blooms & Wishes

Dear Crafters,

Today I have created a card that could be used for many different occasions, as it is so veratile. You have to check out the designer paper too, it is my favourite in this annual catalogue!

Blooms & Wishes, Blooms & Bliss DSP, 2016-2018 In Colors, DIY, #stampinup, Handmade card, Stampin Up 2016

I started by adding a piece of designer paper to the card base and cut a strip of Island Indigo to the same length. A piece of white card was cut slightly smaller and then I randomly stamped the floral images and the sentiment before gluing them all together.

Blooms & Bliss DSP, Blooms & Wishes, 2016-2018 In Colors, DIY, #stampinup, Handmade Feminine card, Stampin Up 2016

I added a strip of crumb cake which was punched with a retired border punch under the decorated strip. I punched the flowers in coordinating cardstock and added rhinestones. I love the watercolour look of these stamps!

Blooms & Bliss DSP, Blooms & Wishes, 2016-2018 In Colors, DIY, #stampinup, Handmade card, Stampin Up 2016

The sentiment is also from the same stamp set. I adore this Designer Series Paper, it is certainly my favourite pack in this new annual catalogue. Be sure to visit over the next few weeks as I share many more projects with these papers.

Sympathy Rose

Dear Crafters,

Last week I shared some cards using the Rose Wonder stamp set and the coordinating Rose Garden thinlits. Here is another Sympathy card using this same bundle, but yet this is very simple and elegant.

Rose Wonder, Rose Garden Thinlits, #stampinup, DIY, 2016-2017 Annual catalogue

This White and Pool Party card doesn’t need to be anything fancy. It is simple, elegant and stylish. The image of white on white is beautiful and noting over rated.

The only colour is the sentiment and a glitter pool party bow ribbon.
