Faux Embossing with Dies

Dear Crafters,

I just love this technique of using dies to embossing without cutting!

Isn’t it just so elegant? I love the effect and softness this technique provides, especially for a wedding card!

OnStage pillow gifts

Dear Crafters,

Today, I am home resting after a huge couple of days in Sydney for the Stampin’ Up! OnStage Local event which was held at Luna Park!  It was so exciting getting our hands on the brand new Annual Catalogue, and it never fails to impress me, but…. I am still not allowed to share anything from that event until tomorrow.

So, today I will share the pillow gift I made for my room buddy, Sharon and the gift I made for Catherine Proctor, who was so kind and caring and did so much for Sharon and I while we were in Sydney. We can’t thank Catherine enough for all her driving, picking us up from the airport on Friday and taking us to our hotel, then again on the day of the event!

For Sharon, my travel and room buddy, I made the gift box and inside was the earrings and necklace set (Blooms & Bliss DSP) and a little notebook in coordinating colours.

For Catherine, I made this card and coordinating notepad.

I hadn’t actually met Catherine before this event, so I wasn’t sure what to make to thank her, but who doesn’t love hearts, butterflies and pearls, right?!!!!!!

and because Catherine was also our taxi on Friday, I baked her some homemade choc chip cookies to enjoy with her cuppa!

Flowers, Stampin' Up!, Sympathy, Thinlits Dies

You’re in my thoughts

Dear Crafters,

It is always tough to come up with a card design for someone who may have lost a loved one, so I always like to have some on hand to be able to grab when required.

Today, I share a card using the Bloomin’ Heart Thinlits die.

Bloomin Heart #stampinup Occasions 2016 Saleabration Bloomin Heart #stampinup Occasions 2016 Saleabration

I have used Wisteria Wonder and Whisper White, purple being the colour of love and I think it is lovely in this sympathy card.

Bloomin Heart #stampinup Occasions 2016 Saleabration

Notice I have glued the heart die cut behind the top layer, framing part of the heart but also so it gives that gorgeous shadow behind once the layer is adhered with dimensionals.

Always remember to stamp the envelope and the inside of your cards!

Bloomin’ Heart at JAI

Dear Crafters,

Today I enter a challenge at Just Add Ink. The challenge this week is from Rochelle who has suggested we all “Just Add Something New”.

rosepolkapaper2

With the new Occasions catalogue going live on 5th January, we have plenty of new yummy products to choose from.

Anyway, lets get rolling!

#bloominheartthinlitsdie #loveblossoms #birthdaybouquetdsp #occasions2016 #stampinup #flowers #bowpaperclipsembellishments

I started with a Mint Macaron card base and added a piece of the new Birthday Bouquet DSP. A piece of dotted lace trim in Mint Macaron was added across the centre.

Next I die cut the Bloom’ Heart Framelit from Blushing Bride card stock and glued it to some vellum and then cut around the edges with paper snips. This just gave it a more subtle and frosted background.

#bloominheartthinlitsdie #loveblossoms #birthdaybouquetdsp #occasions2016 #stampinup #flowers #bowpaperclipsembellishments #stampinupaustralia

I stamped the flower images (Bloomin’ Love stamp set) with Blushing Bride ink onto coordinating card stock and die cut them out, before adding with a glue dot and then a pearl into the centre of each one!

The Bow Paper Clip Embellishment was added (how cute are they?!!!)

On the back of the vellum, a dimensional was placed under each of the 5 flowers and added to the card.

#bloominheartthinlitsdie #loveblossoms #birthdaybouquetdsp #occasions2016 #stampinup #flowers #bowpaperclipsembellishments

 

I stamped the “celebrate” sentiment (from Beautiful Ride stamp set) in Mint Macaron onto Whisper White card stock and used the banner punch at one end.

Don’t forget to decorate the inside panel along with a coordinating envelope!

Bloomin Heart #stampinup

Dear Crafters,

Last Wednesday I shared a card made with some products from the upcoming Occasions catalogue and I am sharing some more today using the same suite.

I adore these colours together; blushing bride & rose red. The Designer Paper Series Stack, Love Blossoms is going to be so popular and you can probably see why as I share my creations with you over the coming months.

Bloomin’ Heart

Bloomin Heart #stampinup

Dear Crafters,

Oh how I love glitter and when we were shown these items at the On Stage Local Stampin’ Up! event 2 weeks ago, ready for release on 5 January, this new Blushing Bride glitter paper is simply stunning , and I had to have it!!!

This is the Bloomin’ Heart Thinlit and the perfect die for this glitter paper.

Bloomin Heart #stampinup

I used a crumb cake card base and layered some blushing bride card which was embossed with the Elegant Dots TIEF. The sentiment (Bloomin’ Love stamp set) is stamped onto whisper white card in crumb cake and blushing bride inks then fussy cut and added with dimensionals.

Bloomin Heart #stampinup
