Flowers, Handmade Cards, Stampin' Up!, Thank you

For all the thoughtful things you do

Dear Crafters,

Here’s a classic navy and white colour combination with a hint of colour!

Floral Phrases, Floral Boutique DSP, #stampinup, DIY, Floral Affection TIEF, 2016, #stampinupaustralia, Feminine Handmade Card

I adore this new designer series paper, Floral Boutique. I have teamed it together with the coordinating stamp set, Floral Phrases and the new Floral Affection Textured Impressions Embossing Folder.

Once I embossed the white card, I die cut it with the Oval framelits. I began by colouring the navy flowers with the aquapainter, but decided to use the Stampin’ Write Markers for a more solid colour. I went over the flowers only with the Wink of Stella.

Basket For You

Dear Crafters,

Tell me, who doesn’t love flowers? said no one ever!

Today’s card uses the Hostess Set, Basket For You. I have to admit, I didn’t really look twice at this set until I saw a card by one of my downline, Kimberly, who made a stunning card with this set.

Basket For You, Petal Burst TIEF, #stampinup, DIY,  2016, #stampinupaustralia, Feminine Handmade Card

I started by embossing the Flirty Flamingo card with the Petal Burst Textured Impression Embossing folder. Next I stamped the basket image and coloured it with the new 2016-2018 Stampin’ Write Markers and the basket was watercoloured using the Aquapainter.

I used the oval framelits for the main image (and paper pierced the edge) and deco label framelits to die cut the Peach behind it. These were adhered with dimensionals. The sentiment was cut out with paper snips!

I even stamped a small flower on the inside of the card and on the envelope (which I forgot to put in the photo!) oops.

Bright Florals

Dear Crafters,

Today I use the brand new Detailed Floral thinlits dies, another of my must have on my first annual catalogue order!

Detailed Floral Thinlits, 2016-2018 In Colour Markers, Floral Phrases, DIY, #stampinup, Handmade card, Stampin Up 2016

I started by die cutting the black card with the thinlits and glued them to the top and bottom of the card, then stamped the sentiment and added the enamel dot.

Using the new 2016-2018 In Color Stampin’ Write Markers, I coloured all the flowers and leaves. Because the borders of the thinlits are black, it doesn’t matter how well you colour in as it doesn’t show on the black card!

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

Butterflies

Swallowtail

Dear Crafters,

Today I use the Swallowtail stamp to create a card in some of my favourite colours!

Swallowtail card #stampinup

I stamped the image on white card with black ink and coloured the image using Stampin Write Markers in Bermuda Bay, Pacific Point and Tempting Turquoise.

I added some Dazzling Details to the wings for a stunning glitter effect.

Swallowtail #stampinup

The base card is Bermuda Bay to coordinate with the markers used on the butterfly.

I have left this card without a sentiment, but I will add one when the time comes for me to give it away!

Please leave a comment below if you like my card today.

Butterflies, feminine, Handmade Cards

Sheer Perfection Butterfly

Dear Crafters,

Today I share with you a stunning, colourful and bright card with the Sheer Perfection Designer Vellum Stack and some Stampin’ Write Markers.

I have used the vellum sheet with the Butterflies, and die cut a banner using the Banner Framelits from it as well as a piece of Whisper White card at the same time. Turn the vellum over and colour with the Brights pack of Stampin’ Write Markers. I adhered the vellum to the white banner using glue dots.

Sheer Perfection Vellum

The base card is Melon Mambo with another layer of Melon Mambo on top. This layer I have sponged the edges with coordinating ink and a sponge dauber, before cutting the 4 corners out.

I then attached some twine by wrapping it around each edge to form a border. Add all the layers with dimensionals.

I added a band of Coastal Cabana card embossed with the Decorative Dots TIEF.

Sheer Perfection Vellum

The sentiment is stamped in Coastal Cabana ink on Whisper White card stock and I cut it out with paper snips. This is added to the card with dimenionals.

How gorgeous is this butterfly vellum coloured from behind? I just love how bright this card is!

Sheer Perfection Vellum

Be sure to decorate the inside panel of your card by stamping a butterfly!

Motorbike for the boys

Dear Crafters,

Today I share a card I made using MDS (My Digital Studio), the computer program that Stampin’ Up! have had for a few years now, and will no longer offer from 31st May 2015. When I heard this is was disappointed, as I had purchased many downloads and use the program for my scrapbooking and designing my blog headers. But in saying this, we can still use the program, there just won’t be access to new downloads.

This card was made for a young man in his 20s for his birthday. At that age, I find masculine cards more difficult, but love this motorbike stamp which I downloaded in MDS for only a couple of dollars and can use as many times as I like!!!

Motorbike

I printed the image onto white card and cut it to the size required. I coloured it with Stampin’ Write Markers. As the saying goes, Red goes faster, so that is what I chose!!!!

How awesome does it look?!!!

Motorbike

I layered it on Basic Grey card and Real Red and added some coordinating Candy Dots.

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