Masculine Thank You with the Nature’s Poem Suite

Dear Crafters,

Today I share a couple of cards using the new Nature’s Poem Suite; Rooted in Nature stamp set, Nature’s Roots Framelits, Nature’s Poem DSP. I am so excited this stamp set has coordinating framelits to cut out the images. No more fussy cutting!

I love how the background piece of DSP brings so much dimension to a card. I stamped some of the leaves on it with Crumb Cake ink and wow, it brings it to life.

The tree image is stamped in Shaded Spruce, a new colour arriving on 1 June. This particular image is stamped off once, but you will see the full strength image in my next card (no wasting from me!!!). I love the large banner behind with the Layered Leaves Dynamic Textured Embossing on it. A piece of vellum, sponged with ink gives an antique look and is punched with the Starburst punch.

This card uses a darker piece of Designer Series Paper from the Nature’s Poem pack. With the full strength tree image, I felt it needed a darker base. I added a thin banner of Shaded Spruce card behind the larger banner.

Let the Good Times Roll on Australia Day!

Dear Crafters,

Today I share this card using the Let the Good Times Roll bundle in the Occasions catalogue. You may remember I shared one earlier in January that was a feminine one, but today is my dads 70th birthday and I thought this was an appropriate card for him, as it brought back wonderful memories of the times he would take me on the rides at the theme parks while my mum & sister looked on in terror!!!! Dad & I loved them!!!

The base card measures 8¼” x 5⅞” and is folded in half.
The Whisper White insert measures 8″ x 5½”.

Are you ready to see the magic happen as you open up the card to reveal the 3D pop up inside?

Who wouldn’t get a thrill out of opening this card?!!!! Isn’t it just so cool?!!

This is a 14 piece photopolymer set, so it makes it super easy to line up the stamped images as well as using the coordinating dies to cut them out so no more fussy cutting! I have used lots of colour as I think it is such a fun card that screams colour!

Remember, here are the tips I found when using this bundle:

  1. use whisper white, not the thick whisper white card, it’s easier to fold the tracks
  2. do not score your white card all the way through. Only score each side about 1/2″, line up the die and then cut, then use a ruler to score across to the edge of the die cut
  3. Score along each edge of the tracks and the bottom edge before trying to fold them
  4. Add an extra layer over the framework of the roller coaster for strength
  5. it will fold flat, you just need patience in the manipulating of the tracks
  6. I made a quick 30 second video to show how it folds flat, view here. (I’m not into making videos, so no instructions with it, lol).
  7. You can also view the YouTube video by Brandi at the Stampin’ Up! home office here to see more about how to create the pop up section!

Masculine

Hexagon meets Grunge

Hello Crafters,

Today I want to share with you a masculine card I case’d from a card I saw on Pinterest a while back using the Hexagon Punch and the Kaleidoscope DSP.

I did the base card in Black, then added a layer of Crushed Curry card and stamped an image from the Gorgeous Grunge stamp set in Smoky Slate ink.

I punched the Kaleidoscope DSP with the circle from the Itty Bitty Shapes Punch Pack then used the Hexagon Punch so the circle is centred.

Hexagon

I used some Bermuda Bay 1/8″ Taffeta Ribbon and weaved it through the punched Hexagons.

I stamped Happy Birthday from Itty Bitty Banners and die cut with coordinating Bitty Banners dies.

Here is a close up!

Hexagon Punch

I love how this turned out and love the Grungy look using the stamp set to add a little detail. Without the stamped background it looked too plain.
This grungy style was something that definitely didn’t appeal to me when I first saw it, but boy has it grown on me!
Why don’t you have a go at a gungy style card too?
