Farewell, feminine, Flowers, Stampin' Up!

Botanical Blooms

Dear Crafters,

Check out today’s multi-layered card. I don’t usually add so many layers, but I was very happy with how this one turned out!

I was asked to make a few Farewell cards for my workplace, and this was one of them.

The card base is Blushing Bride with a layer of the Love Blossom Designer Series Paper.

I embossed the Sahara Sand Banner with the Softly Falling Textured Impressions Embossing Folder and layered it on a piece of Rose Red card stock which I scored a 1/4″ border around the edge.

I used the Botanical Blooms Framelits Dies for all the blooms and foliage (Blushing Bride, Rose Red, So Saffron, Mossy Meadow, Pear Pizzazz, Whisper White & Love Blossoms DSP).

The Blushing Bride Satin ribbon was tied in a bow and finishes off this stunning card (if I do say so myself lol).

Card Box using Diagonal Plate

Dear Crafters,

Back on the 18th January, I shared a card box/envelope and today I share another one that is slightly bigger but uses a full 12″ x 12″ sheet of card stock.

This envelope holds at least 6 A5 cards and 6 C6 envelopes. It is really just a thicker envelope that I made using the diagonal plate with the Simply Scored.

Card Box Wildflower Fields DSP #stampinup

I started with an 12″ x 12″piece of card stock and scored on the diagonal plate at 4″ and 6″. Tip: Score from the ruler along the top and the sides so you don’t have to turn your card stock.

Turn the card stock 90 degrees and score both sides diagonally at 5″ and 7″.

Cut out the small triangles as shown below

Cut up the scorelines as shown below

Now add your Designer Series Paper (Wildflower Fields DSP) and your Tear and Tape adhesive as shown

Also add another piece of DSP to the back of the box

I have decorated the front using a flower I made with the Bow Builder Punch

I adhered the flower to the top flap of the envelope/box as the weight will hold it closed.

Bailey’s turning 7!

Dear Crafters,

On Saturday it was my nephews birthday and he turned 7!

Here is the cheeky monkey card I made for him using the Number of Years stamp set and the Large Numbers framelits dies. The monkey image is from the Zoo Babies stamp set.

Don’t you love how fun these 7 monkeys look, hanging off the number 7?!!!!

Birthday Numbers

Dear Crafters,

Today I have a couple of samples using the Number of Years stamp set and coordinating Large Numbers framelits dies which are must have items from the Occasions catalogue.

If you read my blog, you will have noticed that my eldest daughter is turning 10 this year (omg) and so I have started creating many cards using these products with the number 10 on them for her friends!

Large Numbers Framelits Number of Years Birthday #stampinup

This first card is very simple but effective using Rose Red as the base and Blushing Bride for most of the stamping.

This next card is also very quick and easy, and uses the brand new Confetti Embossing Folder. How cute is that?

Large Numbers Framelits Number of Years Birthday #stampinup  Large Numbers Framelits Number of Years Birthday #stampinup

I love how a little embossing can completely change the look of a card and it is so easy to just run it through a Big Shot machine!

The Number of Years stamp set and the Large numbers Framelits dies can be purchased as a bundle for only $85.75 (#140811) saving you 15%. And if you add the embossing folder to your order, you can select 1 FREE product of any choice from the Saleabration brochure. How cool is that?!!!!

Wildflower Fields Card Box

Dear Crafters,

Today I share a gift idea in the way of a large envelope/card box to place some cards and envelopes in to give as a lovely gift to someone.

I have used Blackberry Bliss, this stunning rich colour coordinates with the Wildflower Fields Designer Series Paper that you can choose for free with any $90 order during Saleabration.

Card Envelope Project Wildflower Fields DSP #stampinup

This envelope can hold 6 A5 cards and C6 envelopes. It is really just a thicker envelope that I made using the diagonal plate with the Simply Scored.

I started with an 11″ x 11″piece of cardstock and scored on the diagonal plate at 3-1/2″ and 5-1/2″. Tip: Score from the ruler along the top and the sides so you don’t have to turn your card stock.

Turn the card stock 90 degrees and score both sides diagonally at 4-1/2″ an 6-1/2″.

Card Envelope Project Wildflower Fields DSP #stampinup

I have used a retired brad as the closer on this one, the flap folds down and underneath it to hold it closed.

I have even put a piece of DSP on the back to dress it up and show off this gorgeous DSP!

Isn’t it a lovely way to give some cards to someone as a gift?!!!

And here are the matching cards I made to go inside with the Flowering Fields stamp set
