Floral Wings

Dear Crafters,

Today I use the Hostess stamp set, Floral Wings which also coordinates with our Bold Butterfly Framelits.

I have no idea what this style is called, but I find it quite effective. I cut down a piece of Whisper White card by 5mm on each side. I stamped the butterfly image in the centre and then measured in the same distance from each side towards the centre and drew a line down, but not across the wings. I then cut out that centre portion leaving the butterfly intact.

My colour scheme: Blushing Bride, Melon Mambo, Mint Macaron and Whisper White.

I then stamped the floral images along each edge and added the sentiment.

I embossed the base card with the Elegant Dots TIEF using the Big Shot machine, before adhering the stamped piece.

What do you think?

Bailey’s turning 7!

Dear Crafters,

On Saturday it was my nephews birthday and he turned 7!

Here is the cheeky monkey card I made for him using the Number of Years stamp set and the Large Numbers framelits dies. The monkey image is from the Zoo Babies stamp set.

Don’t you love how fun these 7 monkeys look, hanging off the number 7?!!!!

Birthday Numbers

Dear Crafters,

Today I have a couple of samples using the Number of Years stamp set and coordinating Large Numbers framelits dies which are must have items from the Occasions catalogue.

If you read my blog, you will have noticed that my eldest daughter is turning 10 this year (omg) and so I have started creating many cards using these products with the number 10 on them for her friends!

This first card is very simple but effective using Rose Red as the base and Blushing Bride for most of the stamping.

This next card is also very quick and easy, and uses the brand new Confetti Embossing Folder. How cute is that?

I love how a little embossing can completely change the look of a card and it is so easy to just run it through a Big Shot machine!

The Number of Years stamp set and the Large numbers Framelits dies can be purchased as a bundle for only $85.75 (#140811) saving you 15%. And if you add the embossing folder to your order, you can select 1 FREE product of any choice from the Saleabration brochure. How cool is that?!!!!

Papillon Potpourri Pop-up Card

Dear Crafters,

While I wait for my order to arrive with some new goodies from the Occasions catalogue and FREE Sale-a-bration products, I thought I would go back to a favourite of mine, the Papillon Potpourri Stamp set and coordinating Elegant & Bitty Butterfly punches.

I love butterflies and I think you may find that shows in this card! lol

I watched a documentary the other day which showed masses of monarch butterflies and it was just so unbelievable, that I wanted to recreate that image in my head.

Papillon Potpourri

The base layers were embossed with the new Spring Flowers TIEF. The centre pieces are die cut using the Big Shot and the Labels Collection Framelits then pierced with the piercing tool, mat & Festive Paper Piercing Pack.

Now are you ready to see inside? This is my favourite part!!!!

Papillon Potpourri     Papillon Potpourri

I used the Papillon Potpourri stamps with Memento Black ink then punched each one out.

I added them to the centre piece with Tombo Glue and dimensionals!

What do you think? Isn’t it stunning?

Here’s a close up of the butterfly mass.

I also added a couple of leaf stems from the Owl Builder Punch and some gold glitter butterflies.

Notice that I haven’t even added a sentiment! It simply doesn’t need one, or maybe it is just too busy with butterflies!

I would love you to comment below with your thoughts on this creation.

Hot Air Balloon

Dear Crafters,

My last post was all about travel and today is no exception!

I have never been in a hot air balloon, but I can only imagine how it must be to fly up in the sky above everything and be so free. Who knows, one day I may get that chance!

Celebrate Today is such a versatile set and can be purchased as a Bundle (stamps & coordinating dies) saving you 15% off.

Celebrate Today

The background is embossed using the Decorative Dots TIEF. I used the Celebrate Today stamps for the sentiment.

The balloons are die cut using the Big Shot and I made 5 images all exactly the same. Fold each balloon in half and then glue to each other. Very simple but so effective!

Stamp the bottom part of the balloon using Stampin’ Write Markers.

I tied a piece of twine at the bottom of the balloon before using Tombo Glue to adhere to the card.

Celebrate Today

Don’t forget to stamp the inside of the card too!

Celebrate Today ~ Travel

Dear Crafters,

Happy New Year!!!!

Seeing as it is holiday time here in Australia, although we are not going anywhere, I wanted to make some cards for those who may be heading off for their annual break.

I have a new product from the Occasions catalogue (on sale from 6th January) called Celebrate Today, and I wanted to incorporate the balloons into this card. Not only can these balloons be used for birthday celebrations, but I also imagined them as hot air balloons!

Celebrate Today

I used the World Map stamp as the background and sponged it with Soft sky ink.

The balloons are inked with soft sky, but before stamping, I kissed it against the World Map stamp, then onto the paper! What a great effect!!!! Next use the Big Shot to die cut the images.

Celebrate Today

I tied a piece of twine at the bottom of each balloon and stamped the sentiment from our Project Life range, Remember This stamp set. I added these with dimensionals.

Celebrate Today

Don’t forget to stamp the inside of the card too!
