Designer Series Paper, Stampin' Up!, Washi Tape

Card for the coffee addict!

Hello Friends,

My project today uses the Coffee Cafe stamp set and coordinating Coffee Cups Framelits dies, and the Coffee Break Designer Series Paper. #cutitnothoardit

I made this card for one of my closest friends for her birthday last week. We try to get together weekly for coffee, so I thought this was kind of appropriate 😉

Angela also loves blue, so what better colours to use than Soft Sky, teamed with browns with white.

I love this coordinating Designer paper and the new Year of Cheer Specialty Washi Tape, which you can see two thin strips of the gold; one across the centre of the ribbon and the other on the coffee cup.

The inside of the card has this sentiment from the Special Celebrations stamp set.

How cool is it that the images on the Designer Series Paper can also be die cut with the coordinating dies!!! I love this new feature of Stampin’ Up!

Hula Hoop Girl

Dear Crafters,

Well it is nearly the end of 2016 and in a way, I am glad to see this year over and very much looking forward to a happier and healthier 2017.

Now that Christmas is over, I am now focusing on the brand new products in the Occasions and Sale-a-bration catalogues available from 4th January!

Today I have the Beautiful You stamp set. When I first saw this particular image, I just knew she had to have a hula hoop swinging around!

The background was sponged using the Seasonal Decorative Masks which are currently on sale for $7.00. You get 4 masks for that price too. It’s a bargain!!!

To draw the Hula Hoop, I used the inside of the smallest Oval from the Stitched Shapes Framelits using a black Sharpie pen!!!

I love these Watercolour Pencils, they make colouring super easy and you can use either the Blender Pen or AquaPainter to blend the colour. I have also added some Wink of Stella to her hat!

Hooray, let’s celebrate

Dear Crafters,

On Monday I shared a card using the Affectionately Yours Designer Series Paper and today I have a card using the Washi Tape from the same suite!

So here is my card!

Affectionately Yours Designer Washi Tape, Confetti Celebration, DIY, #stampinup

And the sentiments are are from a new stamp set, Confetti Celebration that will be available from 1st June in the brand new 2016-2017 Annual catalogue.

What a fun way to use some washi tape. Can you see that middle one? It has copper metallic dots on it. It is super duper pretty and shiny!

Affectionately Yours Designer Washi Tape, Confetti Celebration, DIY, #stampinup

I love how simple this card is to make, by simply using designer washi tape!

Sponging & Reflection technique

Dear Crafters,

Today I share a card made using the sponging & reflection technique.

Now I have to say, I am a HUGE fan of artists who are great with using sponges, but I have to say, I am not.  I have a go and that is the point of this card. You need to try new things and maybe one day, you too will accomplish new highs.

Serene Silhouettes Sponging Reflection Technique #stampinup Sympathy card @cardsbykate

The very first thing I did, was to stamp the image in basic black ink. Then I stamped that same image onto some acetate and quickly applied the acetate to the card to create the reflection.

Then I placed a large post it note across the bottom of the main image to create the horizon first. I used sponge daubers to keep adding colour until I was happy with it. Be careful not to add too much, as you can always add more, not take it away!!!

Then I removed the post it note and did the lower section of the card. I added some washi tape and the sentiment overlay with a stapler.

How do you think I did with the sponging? Yeah, needs improvement, but that will come with more practice!

Christmas Cutie

Dear Crafters,

Today I share a card using some more of the brand new goodies from the Holiday Catalogue!! Be sure to get a copy or view it online now!!! You won’t be disappointed!

The Season of Cheer Designer Washi Tape is so quick and easy to use and helps to create cards in no time. The Home for Christmas Enamel Dots are adhesive backed, which make them super quick to add.

The image is stamped with the new black archival ink pad which is perfect for use with watercolouring techniques.

Christmas Cuties #stampinup

I used the brand new Holly Jolly Greetings stamp set and the Christmas Greetings Thinlits Dies to create the sentiment. The die was glued on with the new Fine Tip Glue Pen, which is super amazing for adding small embellishments like these!

Christmas Cuties #stampinup

I coloured the image with Stampin’ Write Markers.

Fun with Washi Tape

Hello Fellow Crafters!

Thanks for stopping by to see my Fun with Washi Tape post.

The idea for today’s card was some inspiration I found on Pinterest. This card has lots of white space topped with a sweet little Washi tape present complete with bow. I added a small yellow background for a splash of happiness!

IMG_3158

This is one of the quickest cards ever to put together and great for mass producing.

Thought I might even do this for a group of non-crafters at my next Party so they can see just how easy it is to make a quick card without being overwhelmed.

Then I came across the idea of making some cute Washi Tape toothpick flags, while baking cupcakes for my daughter’s 4th birthday.  Stay tuned to see them another day!

What I love so much about working with Washi Tape is that the projects are so quick, easy and the tape is so workable…. and it’s fun!
