Circle Fancy Fold card

Dear Crafters,

Today I have a circle fold card. I had seen one on a Facebook page that I am a member of, but there were no instructions, so I went about creating my own.

I started by die cutting the large scallop circle framelit from Lost Lagoon card stock and folding it in half. Then I die cut a smaller circle from the 2014-2016 In Colour DSP stack.

I then die cut smaller circles again out of Lost Lagoon and Whisper White and adhered these together and then onto the bottom fold of the card.

The next step was die cutting all the leaves and flowers using the Botanical Builder Framelits with Lost Lagoon, Mint Macaron, Blushing Bride and So Saffron card stock, glued them together. I added some with dimensionals.

Lastly, I added Wink of Stella to the centres of the flowers, I think you can see it in the photos?! I also added some basic pearls to 2 of the smaller flowers.

Isn’t this different? I love trying new things and not just our usual A5 cards all the time, but it still fits into our C6 envelopes….bonus!

And here is another one I made in black, white and the brights!

Calendar Card

Dear Crafters,

Today I share with you one of the projects we made at my Techniques class last week.

These mini tab calendars prove popular every year, and my class attendees love making projects with them.

We have made an easel card and added the calendar, so the recipient can have it standing on their desk, wardrobe, where ever they place it for the whole year to admire.

We used the Flowering Fields stamp set which we coloured with Stampin’ Write Markers. The background is the Designer Series Paper, Wildflower Fields which coordinates with this stamp set.

I love that we have something quite Australian in the range.

What do you think of this project? My class ladies loved it!

An here is another card using the same stamp set and DSP. I love making Random Act of Kindness cards and popping them in the post to unsuspecting recipients xx

Pleat Fold Card

Dear Crafters,

“A party without cakebis just a meeting”, I love that sentiment and I’m sure it will get loads of use.

So today, I’ve tried a new technique which I found on Song of My Heart Stampers website. Although we use slightly different card stock sizes to the USA, I have just altered my design slightly.

I love how bright and cheery this is using Melon Mambo, Daffodil Delight and that stunning It’s My Party Designer Series Paper.

I stamped the cake image onto white card stock and fussy cut it out, then added it to the card with dimensionals. The candle is stamped and then punched out, using the candle from the Party Punch Pack. How cute is it?!!!

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.

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!
