Faux Iris Twist Technique

Dear Crafters,

Well the school holidays are well and truly over and back to work hasn’t been the easiest, but today I share this card that is quite the opposite. It is an easy technique but super effective!

I have used the stunning Pop of Pink Designer Series Paper (Melon Mambo, Basic Black and Whisper White).

I stamped the sentiment ‘Enjoy’ from the Bella & Friends stamp set and the ‘It’s Your day’ sentiment from the Confetti Celebration stamp set.

I saw this idea on Julie Davison’s YouTube channel, so thank you Julie!

I just love how with a couple of double sided DSP pages, you can create such a stunning card. This is a great technique to use up those scrap pieces you have saved for that special project!

View Finder card

Dear Crafters,

Today I share a View Finder card which I saw a tutorial on YouTube, but she called it a Spinning Card. It reminded me very much of the old view finder we had as a kid, so that is what I am calling it!

I used the Thoughtful Banners, Confetti Celebration and the Blooms & Wishes stamp sets.

For all the details on how I made this card, please click here to view the YouTube video by Raenelle Pearso, in Arkansas!

Isn’t it a fun style card?!!!!

Birthday, Kids Cards, Masculine, Stampin' Up!

Confetti Art

Dear Crafters,

Today I have another Shaker card using lots of new products from the Annual Catalogue. This one has more of a masculine feel to it, using the gorgeous Dapper Denim and Emerald Envy In Colours.

 Playful Palette, Sprinkles Punch, Thoughtful Banners, Layered Squares Framelits, #stampinup

The base card I stamped first with the little lights at the top and then the stars all over the card, leaving a blank space where the easel is to go. The easel is stamped and then I die cut the centre using the Layered Square framelits and then fussy cut the easel.

The sentiment is from the new Thoughtful Banners stamp set and the coordinating Dual Banner punch.

 Playful Palette, Sprinkles Punch, Thoughtful Banners, Layered Squares Framelits, #stampinup

The bits inside the shaker are created using the new Sprinkles punch. The new foam adhesive strips make creating shaker cards so much easier, be sure to get some in your next order.

Playful Palette, Sprinkles Punch, Thoughtful Banners, Layered Squares Framelits, #stampinup

And check out that gorgeous ruched ribbon. Can you see the Wink of Stella on the little stars?! You know me, even though it’s a masculine card, a little sparkle on the stars was a must! lol

Hooray, let’s celebrate

On Monday I shared a card using the Affectionately Yours Designer Series Paper and today I have a card using the Washi Tape from the same suite!

So here is my card!

Affectionately Yours Designer Washi Tape, Confetti Celebration, DIY, #stampinup

And the sentiments are are from a new stamp set, Confetti Celebration that will be available from 1st June in the brand new 2016-2017 Annual catalogue.

What a fun way to use some washi tape. Can you see that middle one? It has copper metallic dots on it. It is super duper pretty and shiny!

Affectionately Yours Designer Washi Tape, Confetti Celebration, DIY, #stampinup

I love how simple this card is to make, by simply using designer washi tape!

Hexagon Flower Frenzy

Hello Crafters,

What a glorious Melbourne Cup Weekend we have had and so today I share something that is just as colourful and floral!

Hexagon Flower Frenzy

This is my first time using the Hexagon Hive Thinlit and I wanted it to be a darker, dull shade so that the colour of the DSP behind really pops!

The DSP is from the pack called Confetti Celebration. It has such bright and beautiful colours in it, including Basic Gray, Bermuda Bay, Crushed Curry, Pistachio Pudding, Strawberry Slush, Tangelo Twist and Whisper White.

As you can see I have used Pistachio Pudding card for the leaves and the flowers are Crushed Curry, Strawberry Slush and the Silver Glitter paper!

Hexagon Flower Frenzy

I sponged the edges of each of the die cut images with the coordinating inks.

Hexagon Flower Frenzy

This background puts a smile on my face, it is just so bright and cheery and brings loads of dimension to this card.
