Convention – You’re Great

June 28, 2015
009

We made a really cute note card at Convention using the I Think You’re Great stamp set.  I loved the card and decided to recreate it for one of my classes, with a little variation.  I stamped the “leafy” image from the stamp set onto Whisper White card using Mint Macaron ink.  I added a very narrow strip of designer series paper from the Stacked With Love Designer Series Paper Stack which is now retired but you could use the Everyday Chic Designer Series Paper which is what they used at Convention. 010 I attached the stamped card to Mint Macaron card and then to scored and folded Basic Black card.  I stamped the “I think you’re great” image onto scrap Whisper White card using Memento Tuxedo Black ink, cut out the “you’re” and “great” and attached them to the card front.012  Lastly I added a few Basic Rhinestones.  The basic layout is the same as the one we made at Convention but I just had to add a few more layers.  Inside I simply stamped the scallop image onto the bottom of Whisper White card using Mint Macaron ink.  Since it was for one of my classes, this gave everyone the chance to use the Stamp-A-Ma-Jig to line up the image across the bottom of the card.

Very simple but very sweet, don’t you think?  Thanks Stampin’ Up! for the inspiration.

Chocolate Chip Sprinkles of Life

June 23, 2015

031You may or may not know that Stampin’ Up! is a great supportor of the Ronald McDonald House Charities.  This year the Ronald McDonald House Charity stamp set is Sprinkles of Life.  Every time someone purchases this stamp set, Stampin’ Up! will donate $3.00 to the Charity.  This year you will find the stamp set on the inside of the back cover.  It is a gorgeous stamp set with lots of great images and sayings AND it matches the Tree Builder Punch which is a new addition to this year’s catalogue.

I embossed Whisper White card using the Large Polka Dot Embossing Folder and attached it to scored and folded Chocolate Chip card.  I stamped the cupcake base onto Whisper White card and cut it out using a Circle Framelit Die.  I attached the stamped circle to a Pink Pirouette circle punched with the 2-1/2″ Circle Punch.032  I stamped the cupcake icing onto Pink Pirouette card using Pink Pirouette ink and punched it out using the Tree Builder Punch.  I attached the panel to the left hand side of the card front using dimensionals.  I cut a banner from Chocolate Chip card using the Bitty Banners Framelits Dies.  The greeting is from the same stamp set and I stamped it on Whisper White card using Chocolate Chip ink before punching it out using the Word Window Punch.  The greeting is attached to the banner and then to the card front using a dimensionals.034  I stamped the small flower from the stamp set onto scrap Whisper White card using Chocolate Chip ink.  I didn’t check my Tree Builder Punch too well because I completely missed that it has a matching punch for this flower!  I punched mine out using one of the circles on the Owl Builder Punch.  The flower is attached to the cupcake using a Glue Dot and to finish it off I added a small Basic Rhinestone to the centre.

Inside the card I stamped the candle image, also from the Sprinkles of Life stamp set, onto Whisper White card using Chocolate Chip ink.

I am very sure that this stamp set is going to become a firm favourite of mine and yours as well.  Don’t you think?

Happy Anniversary to my Mum and Dad

June 19, 2015

015My parents are celebrating their 61st Wedding Anniversary today.  It sounds like such a long time but I am sure like everyone else, they sometimes wonder where on earth that time has gone.  Although the size of the family probably reminds them.  They are the proud parents of three daughters, grandparents of four granddaughters and one grandson and great grandparents of seven great-granddaughters and six great-grandsons!

I made them a card using the same sketch as this card.  I attached Whisper White card to scored and folded Elegant Eggplant card.  I embossed the lower part of another piece of Whisper White card using the Happy Hearts Embossing Folder016 I also punched the top of the embossed card using the Hearts Border Punch.  The embossed card is attached to Elegant Eggplant card and then the card front using dimensionals.  I stamped “Happy Anniversary” from the Teeny Tiny Sentiments stamp set onto the right hand side of a strip of Whisper White card using Elegant Eggplant ink. 017 I attached the greeting panel to Elegant Eggplant card and then the card front using a dimensional on the outer edges only.  I punched a heart from Elegant Eggplant card using the Sweetheart Punch and attached it to the left hand side of the greeting panel.  I stamped the heart from the Hello Life stamp set onto Whisper White card using Elegant Eggplant ink and cut it out.  The stamped heart is attached to the centre of the punched heart.

Inside I punched a strip of Elegant Eggplant card using the Hearts Border Punch and attached it to the bottom of Whisper White card.

I hope they have a lovely day and celebrate in style.

Happy Birthday Emma

June 17, 2015

My youngest daughter Emma is celebrating her birthday today and unfortunately we can’t be with her to help in the celebration.  I hope she is having a wonderful day being spoiled by her family.  However I did make a card which I thought I would share with you.  I hope she has already received it because she does visit my blog.

I attached a length of Sahara Sand 7/8″ lace trim behind a piece of Sahara Sand designer series paper from the Neutrals Colour Collection before attaching it to Whisper White card.  I stamped the background stamp from the You’ve Got This stamp set onto Whisper White card using Sahara Sand ink.  The stamped card is attached to Rich Razzleberry card and then the card front using dimensionals.027  I stamped the flower from the You’ve Got This stamp set onto Whisper White card using Stazon Jet Black ink.  I used my Blender Pen to pick up Rich Razzleberry, Old Olive and Daffodil Delight ink to colour in the flower.  Once I had finished colouring, I cut the image out and attached it over the background stamp.  028I kept the inside of the card extremely simple, adding Rich Razzleberry card wrapped with another piece of the Sahara Sand 7/8″ lace trim.

Simple, but I think, extremely gorgeous, even if I do say so myself.  What about you, what do you think?

Anyway once again Happy Birthday to my lovely daughter.

Bye for now,

Happy Birthday Ethan

June 12, 2015

ethans-9th-3My eldest grandson is celebrating his birthday today.  Unfortunately we can’t be there to share in his excitement but we celebrated with him earlier.  I created his card using a combination of stamping and MDS.  I can’t tell you how sad I am that this programme has gone away.  I love being able to play with elements and resize the stamps to suit my design.

For my card I stamped three of the “splotch” images from the Gorgeous Grunge stamp set onto Whisper White card using Tempting Turquoise, Daffodil Delight and Real Red ink. ETHANS-9TH I added the line image across the bottom of the card using Crumb Cake ink.  I added a layer of Daffodil Delight and Basic Black card before attaching the stamped panel to scored and folded Tempting Turquoise. The  guitar player was created in MDS.  I resized him to fit the front of my card, printed him onto Whisper White card and cut him out.  He is attached to the card front using dimensionals.  Inside the card I used MDS once again to add the guitar player to the bottom of Whisper White card.  This time I adjusted the opacity each time to create the look of movement.  I stamped “Happy Birthday” from the Crazy About You stamp set using Memento Tuxedo Black ink.   Ethan loved his card and he also loved the amplifier we gave him.  He loves playing the guitar and is showing a real talent for it.  I hope that it is always something that gives him pleasure.  Anyway Happy Birthday Ethan, hope you have a fantastic day.

Bye for now,

Thanks You’ve Got This

June 8, 2015

I had occasion to make a couple of thank you cards for some friends who organised a school reunion.  My husband’s school friends met up at Nambucca Heads to celebrate the last members of his year turning 60.  Anyway the two women who organise these events go to a great deal of trouble and I wanted them to know we appreciate all their efforts.

Thanks-you-for-Peggy-&-Beth

I used two Whisper White note cards to create these very quick and simple thank you notes.  I used Soft Sky and Pool party to stamp the background stamp from the I think You’re Great stamp set and then stamped the flower over the top using Memento Basic Black ink.  I stamped the “thank you” from the Work of Art stamp set using the same ink.  Just to finish it off I stamped the flower onto the envelopes using the Memento Tuxedo Black ink.

Thank-you-for-Peggy-&-Beth

I love how quickly you can create a beautiful card using the note cards as a starting point.  They are also really economical and come with matching envelopes.

I hope these two special ladies enjoy their cards.

Bye for now,

Ice-Cream Birthday

June 6, 2015

0123Isn’t the Sprinkles of Life stamp set simple gorgeous.  I have had fun playing with this stamp set since I got my pre-order.  I also really love the beautiful new paper stack, Cherry on Top.  The paper stacks in the new catalogue are now 6″ x 6″ which is an easier size to use both in cardmaking and scrapbooking.  This is another card we have used in a recent class.

I punched a narrow strip of Watermelon Wonder card using the Hearts Border Punch and attached it behind one long edge of a piece of the Cherry on Top Designer Series Paper.  This piece is attached to the bottom of Whisper White card and then to scored and folded Smoky Slate card.  I stamped the “ice-cream cone” onto Whisper White card using Delightful Dijon ink and attached it to Smoky Slate card.  0133I stamped the “ice-cream” image onto Cucumber Crush card using Cucumber Crush ink, Watermelon Wonder card using Watermelon Wonder ink and Mint Macaron card using Mint Macaron ink.  The images are punched out using the Tree Builder Punch.  I attached these images to the top of the “ice-cream cone”.  The top two images have a half a dimensional under the bottom of the image to give them a little lift.  I punched Watermelon Wonder card using the Cupcake Builder Punch to create the little cherry for the top of the “ice-cream”.  The image panel is attached to the card front using dimensionals. 014 I stamped “happy birthday wishes” from the Petite Pairs stamp set onto Whisper White card and punched it out using the Oval Punch.  I attached the greeting to a Watermelon Wonder Scalloped Oval and then the card front using dimensionals to position it slightly over the image panel.   Inside the card I simply added a strip of Watermelon Wonder card behind one long edge of a piece of  the Cherry on Top Designer Series Paper before attached it to the bottom of Whisper White card.

Now doesn’t that make you want to buy this gorgeous stamp set and as an added bonus you will be supporting the Ronald McDonald House Charities.  You know I love receiving feedback, so please leave me a comment.

Bye for now,

Kris
