Anzac Day broach made from paper!

Dear Crafters,

Anzac Day is a time for the community to come together to remember and recognise the service and sacrifice of members of the Australian Defence Force. Originally a commemoration of the landing of Australian and New Zealand forces on Gallipoli on 25 April 1915, Anzac Day is a public expression of gratitude and reflection resonates to the present day.​

So today, in memory of the ANZACs, I have made my own Red Poppy to pin on my top!

ANZAC poppy broach using Stampin Up Pansy punch by Kate Morgan, Australia

I used the Pansy punch, which unfortunately is retiring soon, and punched 3 x Real Red flowers. I used my bone folder to curl the petals and to loosen the fibres of the card so it becomes more pliable. I then used a retired punch (cannot remember what set it was from) for the black centre. I used the Piercing mat and tool to put a hole through the centre then joined them together with a black split pin. I glued a small magnet to the back so I could then add it to my top without piercing the material, by adding a magnet inside my top to hold it on!

Here’s s closer look!

Flower Power

Dear Crafters,

How are you enjoying all the new products in the 2016-2017 Annual Catalogue? Well, I have placed my order, but I am still waiting for it to arrive, but it should be any day now. I’m stalking the postie every morning, waiting for my delivery!

Here is a card style that I haven’t done for a while, but I love how they look. It may look difficult, but it actually is super easy to create and it still fits into your normal C6 envelope!

Flower Shop, Pansy punch, Affectionately Yours DSP, #stampinup, Petite Petals, Scallop Tag Topper

I love how bright and busy this Designer Series Paper is, however I felt I could only use it on one panel for a bold statement. The sentiment is from the new Thoughtful Banners stamp set and I can see many projects using this over the coming year.

Flower Shop, Pansy punch, Affectionately Yours DSP, #stampinup, Petite Petals, Scallop Tag Topper

I love how the Scallop Tag Topper punch is used to create the closing mechanism for this card and tied off with a coordinating ribbon bow. The inside of the card has been stamped on directly with the same petite petals stamp.

Check out that Wink of Stella on the pansy!

I added some White Perfect Accents to the centres of the smaller flowers, but they were too stark, so I coloured them with my Gold Sharpie to tone them down a little!

Birthday, feminine, Flowers, Stampin' Up!

Birthday Blossoms

Dear Crafters,

Today I go back to our Annual Catalogue and chose something feminine to work with. Here I used the Birthday Blossoms stamp set and the coordinating Pansy punch!

IMG_5564

My colours are Blushing Bride, Whisper White & Pool Party. I stamped the images and then used my Aqua Painter to colour the flowers. Once dry, I added some Wink of Stella to the centres of the flowers. You can see the shine!

The leaves were stamped and fussy cut and the Pansy Punch makes life easier to cut the pansies!!! These were adhered with dimensionals.

Don’t forget to decorate the inside panel of your card and the envelope!

Christmas

A Rudolf Christmas

Rudolf Christmas #stampinup

Dear Crafters,

Well, it is the last day of November and I have nearly finished creating my Christmas cards. Here is one final card for a very special friend who is going through a lot of challenges in her life and I know this will cheer her up immensely.

Rudolf Christmas #stampinup

Rudolf is made using the following punches:

  • 1/2″ circle punch (nose & feet)
  • 3/4″ circle punch (nose)
  • 2″ x 1-3/8″ oval punch (body)
  • Pansy punch (chest)
  • Owl builder punch (head & eyes)
  • Tree builder punch (antlers & ears)

I used smoky slate, sahara sand, whisper white, cherry cobbler and basic black cardstock.

The Merry Moments DSP Stack banner is cut with the Banner Triple punch, as is the silver glimmer card.

The sentiment is from the Holly Jolly Greetings stamp set.

Isn’t it just the cutest?!!!!

feminine, Handmade Cards

All Abloom with Flower Shop

Dear Crafters,

Well my summer holidays are over  but I want to share one more card with you using the All Abloom Designer Paper Stack.

I have bundled it up with the Flower Shop stamps and coordinating punch.

Flowers make me happy and this card certainly is a happy card.

Flower Patch

The base card is Mossy Meadow with layers of All Abloom Designer Paper.

The flowers are stamped using the Flower Shop stamp set in Strawberry Slush and Blushing Bride inks and punched out using the coordinating Pansy Punch.

Flower Patch

I used dimensionals to add the flowers to the card, slightly overlapping them.

I added the sentiment from the Flower Patch stamp set and added some pearls to finish it off.

Be sure to decorate the inside panel of your card and even the envelope helps tie it all together as seen in the first photo.

I would love you to comment below with your thoughts on this creation.

Card in a Box Style, feminine

Flower Shop Explosion Box Card

Happy New Year!

Flower Shop Explosion Box Card

I am loving making these explosion box cards if you haven’t noticed by now! They are so quick and easy and fun to make. All the cutting and scoring is done with the Stampin’ Trimmer.

This card is for my husbands cousin who is turning 26. I think she will love the colours of Wisteria Wonder, Blushing Bride and Pistachio Pudding. I used the Flower Shop Bundle from the current Annual Catalogue and the Papillon Butterfly Stamp set with the coordinating punch.

Happy Stamping!

Card in a Box Style, feminine, Owl Punch

Explosion Box Card

Morning Stampers,

I want to share with you today, a card that a fellow demonstrator showed us last weekend ~ an explosion box card!

How cool are these?

I am loving this new card style and can see myself creating lots of them over the coming months.

This first one we made for my hubby’s birthday last Wednesday and he was super impressed when he pulled it out of the envelope…. yes you heard right, it folds flat and fits in an envelope!!!!

And you see those little monsters popping up out of the box, they are made with the owl punch!

Explosion Box Card

This next card I made for a dear friend of mine who lives in Tasmania and is a very talented lady, especially with her photography. I couldn’t send her any old card, so I thought she would appreciate something a little more special. I have used the Flower Shop Stamp Set and coordinating Pansy punch and the Papillon Potpourri Stamp Set and coordinating punches (Bitty & Elegant Butterfly) to create this one.

Explosion Box Card

I have had some interest in how these are made and so I am willing to do a class to show you just how quick and easy these are to make. If you would like to come along to a class, please comment below what day and times best suit.

Happy stamping,
