Farewell, feminine, Handmade Cards, Kids Cards, Stampin' Up!

She believed she could… so she did!

Hello Friends,

My project today is a quick and easy card using the This Little Piggy stamp set with the Stampin’ Blends Markers to colour the image.

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!!!

Make a Wish Eclipse card using Happy Birthday Gorgeous

Hello Friends,

My project today is a another Eclipse card using the Happy Birthday Gorgeous stamp set!

I love to personalise these cards, but sometimes it is also great to have some birthday cards on hand to use at the last minute, so I made this one for that occasion.

I love this colour combination of Berry Burst, Powder Pink, Sweet Sugarplum and Emerald Envy!

The easiest way I found to get the letters lined up without them moving, was by putting some washi tape across the letters to hold them in place before die cutting. This also made it easier in the class setting to save time!

The Heart of Christmas, Week 23: Beachy Little Christmas with Stampin Blends!

Heart of Christmas Stampin Up Art with Heart Team Christmas Inspiration

Hello Friends,

Welcome to Week 23 of The Heart of Christmas: Handmade Inspiration from the Art with Heart team!

My project today is using the Beachy Little Christmas stamp set and the brand new Stampin’ Blends Markers which are released today for you to purchase!!!

You can purchase these markers singularly or in a combo pack of two. Or if you are like me and need the entire set, you can also purchase all of them (see below)!!!

Here is my Christmas card using these amazing new blending markers.

My card base is Fresh Fig and I used the Thick Whisper White for the centre panel.

To use the Stampin’ Blend Markers, you need to stamp your images with the Black Memento ink pad, allowing it to dry for a few minutes before you begin colouring. I add the darker shade first and then blend with the lighter shade.

I used some of the Red Ribbon across the top and bottom of the white card and added a bow, just to add a little red to make it extra Christmassy!!!

Eclipse card with Watercolour Wings

Hello Friends,

My project today is a card I made for my niece’s birthday a couple of weeks ago. Her favourite colours are aqua and pinks, so I’ve used Pool Party, Dapper Denim, Powder Pink and Sweet Sugarplum.

I’m not sure if you can see the Wink of Stella on the body of each butterfly, but it is so pretty in real life!

This was another card we did at my last class and the ladies thought it was so clever and so much easier to create than they imagined!

Who loves donuts or cookies?

Hello Friends,

My project today is was inspired by Connie Tumm from the USA.

Personally, when I first saw this card, I saw those yummy, sweet, fancy jam biscuits, but so many others just saw donuts, so I’m happy to go with either!!!!

This is my version of the card and we made this at my last class with a lovely group of ladies who loved it! They had so much fun making them and they are made donuts!!!

I personally don’t eat donuts, but I do know they come with chocolate, vanilla & strawberry icing with sprinkles on top, so that is what we made.

The card base is chocolate chip, with Very Vanilla and Pink Pirouette for the other layers. We used the Stitched Shapes Framelits to die cut the oval from the centre of the card.

Some of these punches have retired, but I will always keep them as they come in handy for so many projects just like this! The 3/8″ circle punch was also used for the centre of the each donut!

Don’t you just love the layers and texture of this card? I love how the Layered Leaves Dynamic Textured impressions embossing folder gives such a deep impression as the background and then coordinates so well with the black and white leaf layer of dsp!

The Triple banner punch makes creating banners so quick and easy and perfect. I certainly cannot get them so perfect without this punch!

Adding the layer of silver glimmer adds a touch of class, as does the two little black rhinestones!

Birthday, Kids Cards, Masculine, Stampin' Up!

Personalised masculine birthday card using Sweet Cupcake!

Hello Friends,

My project today is for a little boy turning 8! I am terrible with creating cards for boys as I don’t have any boys in my family, especially not at this age anyway! It was Joel’s birthday during the recent school holidays and he had a party at Timezone which my daughter was so excited about. This is the card I finally came up with!

The icing on this cupcake was meant to look like choc-mint and the cupcake represents the O in his name. I also embossed the card base with the Pinewood Planks Dynamic TIEF for some extra texture.

I stamped another cupcake and placed it inside the card with the sentiment from the same stamp set, Sweet Cupcake.

The reason I chose to use Lemon List Twist for the card base is because it matched the gift bag that we had put the present in!!!
