Christmas, Handmade Cards, Holiday Catalogue, Stampin' Up!

Twinkling Christmas Lights

Today I have another card using the Making Christmas Bright Bundle, CASE’d directly from page 6 of the 2018 Holiday catalogue. You may remember seeing my post on Wednesday using this same bundle, you can see it here.

My Real Red card base is embossed in the Big Shot with the Subtle Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. A layer of Call Me Clover card is added down the centre.

The Whisper White card is stamped with the sprigs from the Christmas Pines stamp set. Then I added the strings for the lights, however, I forgot to stamp these last week when Andrea was here so I’ve had to improvise and so I used the line stamp from the Balloon Celebrations stamp set! I stamped it in Gray Granite ink, but 2nd generation stamping so it isn’t so dark.

The Christmas lights are stamped in Real Red, Call Me Clover, Pineapple Punch and Pool Party. The tops are Gray Granite ink on coordinating card stock. Before I added each light with a dimensional, I used a sponge dauber to lightly add some ink for the light’s glow!

Can you see those Pretty Pines die cuts on top of the stamped ones? These just added an extra bit of dimension.

Birthday, Flowers, Stampin' Up!

Dandelion Magic & last ever Weekly Deals

Dear Crafters,

Today I have a card that I have cased from Pinterest by a lady called Bente Stempelt. I thought it was such a clever idea to create one large dandelion from all those little dandelion stamps!

I love using balloons for birthday cards but this was just too clever an idea using Balloon Celebration stamp set from the Occasions catalogue.

My colour scheme: Hello Honey, Old Olive, Smoky Slate, Soft Sky & Whisper White.

This is a single layer card, so no dimension, but it really doesn’t need it.

IMG_5525

I stamped the clouds first and then the stem before the centre and then the fairy bits (I don’t know their technical term) which we all blow off to make a wish. Didn’t you do that as a kid?!!!

The grass is actually the stamp in the set that is the bunch of strings (upside down and just the ends).  I stamped the sentiment last, but you could really stamp in any order you like!

Don’t forget to decorate the inside of your card too! You can see I have stamped the grass again and some dandelion bits on the inside.

Birthday, Celebrate, Kids Cards, Stampin' Up!

Star Celebration

Dear Crafters,

Today I have a very busy balloon card!

I love using balloons for birthday cards and I’m sure it is the first thing you also reach for when creating projects for birthdays. As I have probably mentioned many times, this was the very first stamp set and Punch Bundle that I added to my cart when we were able to purchase from the Occasions catalogue.

My colour scheme: Watermelon Wonder, Blushing Bride and Whisper White.

IMG_5522

I stamped the balloons first and punched them out and then placed them on the white card to see where to stamp the strings. I added the sentiment and then all the stars, and lots of them!!!! lol

I felt something was missing, so I grabbed my Watermelon Wonder Stampin’ Write Marker and drew by hand, the little dashes around the edge to create a border.

Don’t forget to decorate the inside of your card too! You can see I have stamped the stars again and drawn the border in little dashes on the inside!

IMG_5523

Lastly, I added some rhinestones for a little glimmer!

Skater Girl

Dear Crafters,

Today I share with you a card I was commissioned to make for a work colleague who requested a card for her daughter who loves skateboarding!

Here’s what I came up with:

IMG_4644

To begin, I stamped the skateboard from the Skating By stamp set and then the female figure from the Hey Girl stamp set.

I coloured the images with Copic markers, but stamped the female image onto some Brights Collection DSP and cut out the dress only and glued it on the stamped image for a pretty patterned dress! What a clever idea, hey!!!

IMG_4646

The balloon was also stamped onto DSP and cut out using the Balloon Bouquet punch, then added with a dimensional.

IMG_4645

Don’t forget to add am image to the inside of the card and coordinate the envelope to match. I thought this cute floral image was perfect.

Birthday, feminine, Flowers, Stampin' Up!

Blooming Birthday

Dear Crafters,

In January, I made a similar card to this one, but here I have used some brighter colours.

I started with a black card base and added some Bermuda Bay DSP.

 

#BalloonCelebration #occasions2016 #stampinup #stampinupaustaalia

Next I stamped the images onto Whisper White card stock using the Memento Black Inkpad. The stems are from the Flower Patch stamp set, as is the sentiment, but those flowers are actually from the Balloon Celebration stamp set. Yes, it is that “wheel” looking stamp that we all looked at and wondered what on earth it goes with in the theme of the balloon celebration stamps.

#BalloonCelebration #occasions2016 #stampinup

The flowers are coloured with the Stampin’ Write Markers, Daffodil Delight, Melon Mambo and Tempting Turquoise. I stamped the dotty circle image onto vellum and punched it out with the 3/4″ circle punch.

I added each vellum circle with a glue dot and then added a large pearl to the centre of each flower.

Check out that gorgeous white jute ribbon behind, adding the perfect amount of texture!!!

Birthday Celebration & You Little Furball

Dear Crafters,

Here’s a new idea for that “wheel” like image from the Balloon Celebration stamp set that no one seems to know what to use it for!

IMG_4479

In this card I’ve used it as a background stamp!

Melon Mambo, Basic Black and Whisper White are a classic combination. They go so well together.

IMG_4480

Then I also thought that it could be used as a ball of wool or roll of string with the kitty cat playing with it!!!

IMG_4478 IMG_4477

Has this given you some more ideas of what to use this image for?

Pop up Slider Card

Dear Crafters,

Happy New Year to you all, I hope that your celebrations were safe and wonderful and your year ahead is full of love, laughter, happiness & of course loads of crafting!

Today I share with you, a new technique that has been around for many years, but I have not made until now. It’s the pop up slider card.

Slider Card Balloon Celebration Bouquet #stampinup

I love new products and today I have used a few of them lol. These are from the Occasions catalogue and a couple of the FREE sets from the Sale-a-bration brochure which goes live on 5th January 2016!

I used the Balloon Celebration stamp set and the coordinating Balloon Bouquet Punch. This punch has 2 size balloons on it, so it is fantastic value!  I also used the Hello stamp set and Perfect Pairings stamp set, both of which can be earned FREE during Sale-a-bration. All you have to do is spend $90 and choose 1 FREE item, spend $180 and choose 2 FREE items and so on.

Here’s how it works. As you pull the ribbon tab at the top, the middle section of the card opens up to reveal hidden messages.

Push the tab back in and the card closes up.

Colours I’ve used are: Mint Macaron, Pool Party, Melon Mambo & Whisper White.

How cute is this technique??!!! I don’t know why it took me so long to give it a go, but I can see myself making many more of these fun cards.
