A simple card

August 31, 2014

009I was surfing Pinterest recently (you know, I think I am addicted) and found a very simple card using an image that wasn’t Stampin’ Up! but I knew it would work with the beautiful flower in the Stippled Blossom stamp set, so I just had to case it.

I stamped the solid flower from the Stippled Blossom stamp set onto Whisper White card using Wisteria Wonder ink which I had stamped off once onto scrap paper.  010I stamped the outline image over the top using the same ink.  I masked the flower and stamped the leaves using Always Artichoke ink.  Again the solid image was stamped off once onto scrap paper first.  I stamped “thinking of you” from the Sassy Salutations stamp set to the left and below the flower.  I stamped the second flower onto scrap paper using Elegant Eggplant ink.  011Again the solid image was stamped off once onto scrap paper to give the lighter colour.  I cut out the Elegant Eggplant flower and attached it over the flower and leaf images.  Although I love one layer cards, I do struggle to actually make them, so I had to add an Elegant Eggplant card base.

Inside the card I stamped the Wisteria Wonder flower which I masked before stamping the leaves.

A simple card but I think it is gorgeous and I thank Laura, the creator of the card I cased, for the inspiration.

Bye for now,

Cheerful Christmas Card

August 29, 2014

0242Here I am again sharing something from the Holiday Catalogue.  I must have Christmas or celebrations on the brain, although it is hard not to with all the gorgeous Christmas goodies in this fantastic catalogue.  Anyway, I created this card to be part of my September Class.

I embossed Very Vanilla card using the Large Polka Dot Embossing Folder and attached it to scored and folded Early Expresso card.  I attached a strip of the very gorgeous Under the Tree Specialty Designer Series Paper to a strip of Early Expresso card and then the card front. 0252 I punched two tags from Crumb Cake card using the Note Tag Punch and embossed them using the Perfect Polka Dots Embossing Folder.  I attached the tags to the card front so that they were sitting just under the top of the designer series paper.  I stamped the background tag image from the Cheerful Tags stamp set onto Very Vanilla card using Crumb Cake ink.  I stamped the tree border stamp across the bottom of the tag using Garden Green ink.  0272I stamped merry, three times using Early Expresso ink above the tree border.  I punched the tag using the Note Tag Punch and attached it to the card front using dimensionals.  I tied a knot in a length of Early Express 1/4″ Cotton Ribbon and attached it to the top of the tag using a Glue Dot.

Inside the card I stamped the row of trees across Very Vanilla card using Garden Green ink.  I stamped the greeting from the same stamp set using Cherry Cobbler ink.

I think this is such a fun set and of course would make the most adorable set of Christmas Tags but that will be a project for another day.

Wondrous Wreath

August 27, 2014

032Here is another card for my September Class using stamp sets from the Holiday Catalogue.  This is my first creation using the Wondrous Wreath stamp set and matching Wonderful Wreath Framelits Dies.

I stamped Crumb Cake card with the Hardwood Background stamp using Crumb Cake ink and sponged the edges of the card using the same ink.  I attached the stamped card to scored and folded Crumb Cake card.  I cut four pieces of Crumb Cake card to represent panels on a door which I stamped  with the same stamp and ink.  033I sponged the edges with Crumb Cake ink before attaching the panels to the card front using dimensionals.  You have to stamp three images one on top of the other to create the wreath.  I stamped the first image onto Very Vanilla card using Wild Wasabi ink, the second image using Garden Green ink and the third image using Cherry Cobbler. 034 I managed to line up the first two images perfectly but I think my berries are a little off! To make it easier to line them up you have a little tab on each image, so, if you place the tab in the same position you can line them up fairly easily.  There are two Framelits to cut out the wreath, one for the outside and one for the inside.  Each of these framelits also has the tab so that you can position them correctly.  Next I stamped the bow image from the Wondrous Wreath stamp set onto Very Vanilla card using Cherry Cobbler ink.  This image also has a matching framelit in the Wonderful Wreath Framelits Dies.  I attached the bow to the wreath.

Inside I stamped the greeting from the same stamp set onto Very Vanilla card using Cherry Cobbler ink.

I think that it looks like a wreath hanging on the front door, well at least I hope it does.  Have I got it right?

Only one day and you too can try out this stamp set and matching framelits, which, by the way, is a bundle in the Holiday Catalogue.  Woohoo!

Bye for now,

Technostamper Challenge 328

August 25, 2014

035I am getting ready for next month’s class which is going to be all Christmas Cards and I decided to use the Technostamper Challenge for one of the cards.

I embossed Whisper White card using the Stylish Stripes Embossing Folder and attached it to scored and folded Cherry Cobbler Card.  I punched both long edges of a strip of Cherry Cobbler card using the Scallop Edge Border Punch, wrapped it with Whisper White 5/8″ Satin Ribbon and attached it to the card front.  038I stamped the small tree image from the Project Life Holiday Cheer Photopolymer stamp set three times onto Whisper White card using Garden Green ink.  I stamped the greeting from the Endless Wishes stamp set above the trees using Cherry Cobbler ink.  The image panel is attached to Garden Green card and then the card front using dimensionals.  Lastly I tied a length of Whisper White 5/8″Satin Ribbon in a knot to the left of the image panel.036

Inside the card I stamped one of the edge images from the Project Life Holiday Cheer Photopylymer stamp set using Cherry Cobbler ink.  I stamped the tree image from the same stamp set using Garden Green ink.

A simple card but I think it is quite stylish.  You will love this new Project Life stamp set which is being released on the 28th August (only a few days now).  It has lots of images and sayings which make it quite versatile.

I’d really love to hear what you think

Bye for now,

Happy Birthday Lorraine

August 24, 2014

Yesterday I shared the card set that I made for my husband’s cousin and today I thought I would share her birthday card and the matching box I made to hold the Christmas Cards.

Lorrain's-Birthday-Present

I embossed Whisper White card using the Decorative Dots Embossing Folder and attached it to scored and folded Bermuda Bay card.  I stamped Birthday Wishes from the Four You stamp set onto Whisper White card, which has a “v” cut in one end.  I attached the greeting to Calypso Coral card and added a strip of Mossy Meadow card which has been punched using the Scallop Edge Border Punch.  I cut a circle from Whisper White and another one from Mossy Meadow using the Circles Framelits Dies and attached them to each other and the card front using dimensionals.  I stamped the flower from the Stippled Blossoms stamp set onto Whisper White card using Bermuda Bay ink and cut it out.  The solid flower was stamped off once onto scrap paper to create the dimension.  I stamped the leaves from the Stippled Blossoms stamp set three times onto Whisper White card using Mossy Meadow ink and cut them out.  I attached the leaves and the flower to the Whisper White circle and added small pearls to the centre of the flower.

Lorrains-Birthday-present-2

Inside the card I stamped the flower, covered it with a mask before stamping the leaves over the top.  Simple but so pretty.

Lorraines-Birthday-present-

I made my box using the Envelope Punch Board and decorated it to match the card, although I didn’t add a greeting this time.  I love the way they look together and so did Lorraine.

Bye for now,

Kris
