Paper Piecing

Dear Crafters,

Today I have created a card using the Paper Piecing Technique, not to be confused with the Paper Piercing Technique!

This technique is quite easy, but you need to like fussy cutting!!!!

I stamped the floral image onto the chosen Designer Series Paper and then fussy cut out the flowers petals with Paper Snips. I did the same for the leaves, but onto a different designer paper.

Stamp the image again (stem) onto your Very Vanilla card and then glue the fussy cut pieces over the top.

I added the cute little ribbon bow, using some of the metallic ribbon that I got for FREE during Saleabration when I placed a $90 order!!!

Just Add “S”

Dear Crafters,

It has been quite a few months since I have entered any challenges, but today I enter the Just Add Ink challenge, “Just Add S” to your project (#318).

So I have chosen to add a Sunburst!

Love Blooms Baby Bear Sunburst Feminine handmade card #stampinup, DIY, @cardsbykate #stampinupaustralia

I love making this style of card, not only does it showcase so many of the wonderful Stampin’ Up! papers, but it can also use up some smaller scraps left over from previous projects.

I also adore this new Baby Bear stamp set. Isn’t it just adorable? I have stamped it with Sahara Sand, Crumb Cake and Soft Suede, as it is a two-step stamp, although there are 3 parts to it, hence the 3 colours!

I also wanted to show you some cards with the new Affectionately Yours DSP using the same Sunburst technique. They are so bright and cheery. This time the little cat is created using the Foxy Friends bundle (purchase both items together to save $$).

Designer Jewellery!

Dear Crafters,

You probably looked at the heading and thought “What? Designer Jewellery? I thought this was a paper crafting site”. Well yes, today I have an extra blog post to share with you with some amazing projects that I have made using our Designer Series Papers!!! I love to showcase them in this way, because it is always a talking point when speaking with so many people. I get loads of wonderful comments and I’m always asked where I purchased them from…. well me of course!

Here is this Necklace and Earring Set made with the Floral Boutique DSP!

IMG_5795

The jewellery items I purchased on eBay and I used my circle punches to cut the Designer Series Paper. The necklace circle was a little too big, so I did have to trim around the edges with paper snips for it to fit neatly inside the tray! I adhered it with Crystal Effects and then added some more Crystal Effects on top to add the glass circle. The earrings were done the same way.

What do you think of my jewellery sets to showcase our DSP?!!!

Flower Power

Dear Crafters,

How are you enjoying all the new products in the 2016-2017 Annual Catalogue? Well, I have placed my order, but I am still waiting for it to arrive, but it should be any day now. I’m stalking the postie every morning, waiting for my delivery!

Here is a card style that I haven’t done for a while, but I love how they look. It may look difficult, but it actually is super easy to create and it still fits into your normal C6 envelope!

Flower Shop, Pansy punch, Affectionately Yours DSP, #stampinup, Petite Petals, Scallop Tag Topper

I love how bright and busy this Designer Series Paper is, however I felt I could only use it on one panel for a bold statement. The sentiment is from the new Thoughtful Banners stamp set and I can see many projects using this over the coming year.

Flower Shop, Pansy punch, Affectionately Yours DSP, #stampinup, Petite Petals, Scallop Tag Topper

I love how the Scallop Tag Topper punch is used to create the closing mechanism for this card and tied off with a coordinating ribbon bow. The inside of the card has been stamped on directly with the same petite petals stamp.

Check out that Wink of Stella on the pansy!

I added some White Perfect Accents to the centres of the smaller flowers, but they were too stark, so I coloured them with my Gold Sharpie to tone them down a little!
