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!

Butterfly with Detailed Floral Wings

Dear Crafters,

Do you love butterflies like me? Yes? I find I am always drawn to butterflies for many different types of cards, from sympathy to birthday to Thanks or even just a Thinking of You card!

Blooms & Bliss Bold Butterfly Feminine handmade card #stampinup, DIY @cardsbykate

The card base is Rich Razzleberry with a layer of Very Vanilla embossed with the Fluttering textured impressions embossing folder. Each of these butterflies has a shimmer, which was added by brushing some Wink of Stella over each one.

The layered squares framelits were used to create the square layer and some lace trim added to the bottom of this layer before adding it to the card with dimensionals.

I die cut a piece of Blooms & Bliss Designer paper with the Bold Butterfly framelit.

I die cut the larger of the Detailed Floral Thinlits in Very Vanilla card, then placed the bold butterfly framelit over the top and die cut it. Leaving it in the framelit and not removing it just yet, I added small dobs of Tombo glue to the back and then placed the Designer Series Paper butterfly over it, easily lining it up using the edges of the framelit!

I added Wink of Stella to the Vanilla pattern on the butterfly.

Blooms & Bliss Bold Butterfly Feminine handmade card #stampinup DIY @cardsbykate

Tie some gold cording trim around the body of the butterfly and two small pieces for the antennae. I also tied a bow around the front of the trim, before adding it to the card with dimensionals.

I haven’t added a sentiment, because it really doesn’t need one, but it can then be used for any occasions!!!

Bloomin’ Butterfly

Dear Crafters,

Today I have a pretty use for the Bloomin’ Heart Framelit, without it being a heart!

Once I die cut the heart, I glued it onto some vellum and then used the  which also coordinates with the Bold Butterfly Framelits.

My colour scheme: Blushing Bride, Rose Red and Whisper White.

I have used the Love Blossoms DSP which is still available until the end of May and then it retires. It is a gorgeous pack (see below), be sure to add it to your order.

I added a banner of Rose Red cardstock with a sentiment stamped in the same colour. The Botantical Builder Framelits were used to die cut the flower, then I added Wink of Stella for a stunning shine!

The cording trim was wrapped around the centre of the butterfly and some silver sequins added for some extra bling!

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?

Just Add Butterflies

Dear Crafters,

Today I enter a challenge at Just Add Ink. The challenge this week is to Just Add Butterflies, JAI#272.

Butterflies #Stampin'Up!

I began by embossing the black card with the Butterflies TIEF in the Big Shot. I die cut the two banners using the Lots of Labels Framelits.

I stamped the flowers (Awesomely Artistic stamp set) in Versamark ink, then added clear embossing powder and heat set. I used the Blender Pens with Wild Wasabi ink to colour them.

Colours used: Basic Black, Melon Mambo, Wild Wasabi and Gold.

Butterflies #Stampin'Up!

The sentiment is from the Greetings Thinlits in gold glitter paper, as is the butterfly (Bold Butterfly Framelits).

Please leave a comment below, if you think my card met this sketch challenge.

Why don’t you give a challenge a go, they are so much fun. Head across to the Just Add Ink page for more inspiration and see how the designers interpreted this challenge.

Brick Wall

Dear Crafters,

Today I share another  product new to the annual catalogue, the Brick Wall TIEF. It is a 6″ x 6″ embossing folder, so super large to emboss a bigger area!

I have not done any stamping on the front of this card at all, so check it out!

Let’s get started.

I embossed a piece of whisper white cardstock and then used my sponge daubers in a circular motion to colour the wall. I used Sahara Sand, Smoky Slate & Tip Top Taupe.

Stampin' Up! Watercolour Wings Brick Wall

The butterfly is made from die cuts using the Bold Butterfly Framelits. The bottom layer is vellum and the next is Watermelon Wonder. I added some gold thread behind the butterfly and a gorgeous blossom accent to the front with a small pearl which I coloured with a metallic gold sharpie pen.

Stampin' Up! Watercolour Wings Brick Wall

I added some Cucumber Crush leaves die cut from the Flower Frenzy Bigz die (retired).

Don’t forget to decorate the inside of your card too with another little butterfly!
