Nail Polish Card

Hello Crafters,

The school holidays have arrived and my girls want to get all girly and paint their nails! I remembered seeing a card on Pinterest that I fancied, so here we go.

I did the base card in Pool Party, then added a layer of Whisper White and stamped two images from the Chalk Talk stamp set with Crisp Cantaloupe ink. I punched out the For You image with a 1-1/4″ circle punch and added it with dimensionals.

The gorgeous little nail polish bottles are made with Crisp Cantaloupe, Pistachio Pudding, Pool Party and black card stock.

The designer paper is from the Sweet Sorbet DSP pack.

The nail polish bottles are adhered with dimensionals also and a little rhinestone added for a bit of bling! What lady who paints her nails doesn’t love a bit of bling?!!!!

 

Here is a close up!

I love this card and can see myself making many more of these!

JAI#209

Hello Crafters,

At Just Add Ink this week, it’s a Just Add…… Layers challenge!

Petal Parade

I am loving these colours together and I am already missing my favourite Sweet Sorbet DSP from Sale-a-bration 2014 and the coordinating Petal Parade stamp set.

I think I have a few layers here, starting with the Pool Party card base.

The next layer is Whisper White with the Sweet Sorbet DSP with some black 1/8″ taffeta ribbon.

Another Pool Party layer with Whisper White on top with stamped images from the Petal Parade stamp set and adhered with dimensionals.

On top of this is another layer of banners and flower adhered with dimensionals and some punched itty bitty shapes held down with mini brads. I also added a clear button with some twine.

The sentiment is stamped from Teeny Tiny Sentiments stamp set and I punched it out with the Word Window punch, before sticking down with more dimensionals.

These colours of Pool Party, Black and White are just stunning and work so well together!

Scallop Tag Topper Punch Card

Hello Crafters,

I don’t know what it is, but I just can’t get enough of this Sweet Sorbet DSP. I love the colour scheme and find it so refreshing, maybe these colours remind me of gelati, yummy!

Scallop Tag Topper

For the card base, I started with a piece of Whisper White cardstock measuring 5-3/8″ x 4-1/8″.

Measure and mark the centre along the shorter side. Flip the card and repeat. Shimmy it into the Scallop Tag Topper punch (#133324) and line up the mark with the centre of the scallop punch.

So Very Grateful

Hello Stampers,

As you know, my Big Brown Box arrived from Stampin’ Up! a couple of days ago with my new supplies from the Sale-a-bration brochure & Occasions catalogue.

Here is another card I have created but this time a birthday card for a lovely lady.

The gorgeous background paper in called Sweet Sorbet and is from the Sale-a-bration brochure which if you place an order of $90 or more, you can get a packet for free! Yes you heard correct, free and it has 12 sheets in the pack!

The stamp is from the So Very Grateful Stamp Set in the new Occasions Catalogue, available for purchase on 28th January. Just let me know if you would like a copy of the catalogues mailed to you prior to the sale starting!

I used the Stampin’ Write Markers to colour the image and stamp the sentiment in Pistachio Pudding and Crisp Canteloupe.
