Another Set of Cards

February 19, 2019

This time using the Oh So Eclectic stamp set from the Annual Catalogue.  I cut Calypso Coral card using the Rectangle Stitched Shapes Dies and attached it to scored and folded Thick Whisper White card.  I cut Whisper White card using a slightly smaller Rectangle Stitched Framelits Die and at the same time using the die from the Eclectic Layers Thinlits Dies inside the rectangle shape.  The Whisper White card is attached to the centre of the Calypso Coral card.  I stamped the greeting from the Itty Bitty Greetings stamp set using Pear Pizzazz ink onto the lower right hand corner of the card front.  I stamped the leaf from the Oh So Eclectic stamp set three times onto Whisper White card using Pear Pizzazz ink.  The leaves are cut out using the co-ordinating die from the Eclectic Layers Thinlits Dies.  I stamped the small flower head onto Whisper White card three times using Calypso Coral ink.  I cut out the flowers using the co-ordinating die from the Eclectic Layers Thinlits Dies.  I also cut the complete detailed flower from Calypso Coral card.  The flower head image is attached to the back of the detailed flower.  I attached the leaves and two of the flowers to the card front using liquid glue.  I attached the third flower using dimensionals underneath the flower head and liquid glue on the stem.  I used the Calypso Coral Stampin’ Write Marker to colour the Whisper White 1/8″ Sheer Ribbon.  I let the ribbon dry and tied a bow which is attached over the flower stems using a glue dot.

To decorate the inside of the card, I stamped the leaf image twice onto the lower left hand corner without re-inking.  I stamped the flower onto scrap Whisper White card using Calypso Coral ink.  I stamped the detailed image over the top using Calypso Coral ink.  The image is cut out using the co-ordinating Eclectic Layers Thinlits Die and attached over the leaves.

The remaining cards are created using Blushing Bride, Petal Pink and So Saffron ink and card.  The ribbon is coloured in the same manner as for the first card using the co-ordinating Stampin’ Write Marker.

These cards were inspired by one I saw on Pinterest (sorry I can’t find the original to give credit, let me know if it is yours) and I just love how pretty they are.  I would really love to hear what you think.  I have been sharing lots of sets of cards recently and I wonder if you are enjoying them or maybe not?

Try Stampin’ on a Tuesday 395

February 18, 2019

Today’s card is created using the current sketch challenge at Try Stampin’ on a Tuesday.    I began by stamping the palm tree trunks from the Beach Happy stamp set onto Shimmery White card using Soft Suede ink.  I stamped the palm leaves from the same stamp set using Old Olive ink.  The sand image from the High Tide stamp set is stamped using Crumb Cake ink.  The sea image, also from the High Tide stamp set, is stamped using Bermuda Bay ink.  I stamped the chair and umbrella image from the Beach Happy stamp set onto scrap Shimmery White card using Memento Tuxedo Black ink.  I stamped the chair fill image using Mango Melody ink and the umbrella fill image using Poppy Parade ink.  I cut out the image and attached it to the stamped panel using dimensionals.  I wrapped Very Vanilla card twice using the 3/16″ Braided Linen Trim and attached it to scored and folded Crumb Cake card.  I attached the stamped panel over the top of the 3/16 “Braided Linen Trim using dimensionals.  I tied a bow onto the left hand side of the card using the same 3/16″ Braided Linen Trim and frayed out the ends.

To decorate the inside of the card, I stamped the palm tree from the Beach Happy stamp set using Soft Suede and Old Olive inks.  I added the greeting from the Beach Happy stamp set using Soft Suede ink.

Simple really but I like the way it turned out.  I’d love to hear what you think.

Cousins – Family

February 16, 2019

I am running a little late today with my post, sorry!  These photos are of my Dad and his brother, taken with their cousins.  Dad isn’t sure where the photos are taken but says that that picture of him was taken when he was joining the Navy so he was 21.  My Dad is the one in the photo on the right.  Anyway I couldn’t resist using the gorgeous Painted Seasons Designer Series Paper as the backdrop for the photos.   I decided to use this lovely pattern and attached it across a Very Vanilla 12″ x 12″ page.   I cut the main title from Call Me Clover card using the Large Letters Framelits Dies.  I used the retired Little Letters Thinlits Dies to cut the second title from Call Me Clover card.  The journaling was created on my computer and attached to Call Me Clover card before attaching to the page.  To decorate the left hand corner I stamped the flowers from the Painted Seasons stamp set onto Very Vanilla card using Poppy Parade ink and also Mango Melody ink.  I stamped the leaves from the Painted Seasons stamp set onto Very Vanilla card using Call Me Clover ink.  The flowers and leaves are cut out using the Four Seasons Framelits Dies which will be available for purchase on the 1st March.   I layered the leaves and flowers onto the left hand corner with the flower in the centre attached using dimensionals.  Don’t forget that this gorgeous paper and the Painted Seasons stamp set is available FREE with a qualifying order during Sale-a-Bration.

Once more this is a relatively simple page but one that emphases the photos and the story for my girls and their children.

Bye for now,

New SAB items

February 15, 2019

Today is the day Stampin’ Up! is releasing some new product you can earn for free during Sale-A-Bration.  One of the products being released is the Painted Seasons Bundle.  This consists of a beautiful stamp set and gorgeous co-ordinating Designer Series Paper.  The card I am showing you today was shared by a Donna Gray an Australian Demonstrator.  Donna has a facebook live video you can watch here that shows how she created her card.  I created a card just like Donna’s using Highland Heather, Gorgeous Grape, Soft Sea Foam, Gray Granite and So Saffron, which is very pretty.  However, I wanted to create a birthday card for a friend and so I experimented with some different colours.  I stamped the larger single flower from the Painted Seasons stamp set onto Whisper White card using Flirty Flamingo ink.  I stamped the same flower again but this time using Mango Melody ink.  I stamped the leaves using Granny Apple Green ink.  Donna stamps her leaves without it, but I used a post-it-note mask to cover the flowers before stamping.  I added the small “dotty” image using Gray Granite ink.  The stamped panel is attached to Gray Granite card and then scored and folded Flirty Flamingo card.  I stamped the greeting from the Picture Perfect Birthday stamp set onto Whisper White card using Gray Granite ink.  I punched out the greeting using the 2″ Circle Punch and attached it to Gray Granite card punched using the Starburst Punch.  The greeting is attached to the card front using dimensionals.

To decorate the inside of the card, I stamped the flower using Flirty Flamingo ink onto the lower left hand corner of Whisper White card.  I masked the flower and stamped the leaf image using Granny Apple Green ink.

Here are both cards together, they are both gorgeous don’t you?

Thank you so much Donna for sharing your creativity.  I recommend you watch the video and then create a card of your own.  I’d love to see what colour combo’s you can come up with.

Birthday Wishes

February 14, 2019

I used the sketch at Freshly Made this week to create this card.  I stamped the bokeh image from the Beauty Abounds stamp set using Flirty Flamingo ink.  I stamped the same image, between the first set of images, this time using Mango Melody ink.  The stamped Whisper White card is attached to Basic Black card and then to scored and folded Flirty Flamingo card.  I cut “birthday” and “wishes” from Basic Black card using the Well Written Framelits DiesThe words are attached across the stamped panel.  I cut Flirty Flamingo card and Mango Melody card using the small flower from the Well Written Framlits Dies and attached the flowers around the greeting.  Lastly I added Basic Pearls to the centre of each flower.

To decorate the inside of the card, I stamped the bokeh image from the Beauty Abounds stamp set twice using Flirty Flamingo ink and once using Mango Melody ink.

Such a simple card but I really love it.  Thank you Freshly Made for another great sketch.

Bye for now,

Graceful Garden Four Ways

February 12, 2019

Today’s cards are the result of another afternoon of colouring in the air conditioning trying to escape the heat in Brisbane.  For this card I stamped the flower from the Graceful Garden stamp set onto Whisper White card using Memento Tuxedo Black ink.  The flower is coloured using Real Red and Old Olive Stampin’ Blends.  I stamped the Buffalo Check Background onto Whisper White card using Old Olive ink.  To make this truly successful I used the Stamparatus so that I could re-ink and stamp as many times as I wished to get a perfect image.  I cut Real Red card using the Rectangle Stitched Framelits Dies and attached it to Whisper White card.  I attached the Buffalo Check piece onto the left hand side of the Whisper White card, partially covering the Real Red rectangle.   The whole piece is attached to scored and folded Real Red card.  I cut a slightly smaller rectangle from Whisper White card using the Rectangle Stitched Framelits Dies.  I stamped the background image from the Graceful Garden stamp set using Smoky Slate ink.  I attached the flower to the stamped panel and then the card front using dimensionasl.

To decorate the inside of the card, I stamped the small flower from the Graceful Garden stamp set onto the upper right hand corner of Whisper White card using Memento Tuxedo Black inkThe image is coloured using the Real Red and Old Olive Stampin’ Blends.

As I said I coloured several flowers in the one sitting.  The second card uses Cherry Cobbler card for the card base and the larger rectangle.   The flower is coloured using Cherry Cobbler and Old Olive Stampin’ Blends.  The Buffalo Check is stamped in Old Olive ink and the background in Smoky Slate ink.  The smaller flower is also used to decorate the inside of the card.

The third card uses Lovely Lipstick and Granny Apple Green Stampin’ Blends to colour the flowers.  The Buffalo Check Background is stamped in Granny Apple Green ink and the background in Smoky Slate ink.  The card base and large rectangle use Lovely Lipstick card.

The last card is coloured using Rich Razzleberry and Old Olive Stampin’ Blends.  The Buffalo Check Background is stamped using Old Olive ink and the background using Smoky Slate ink.  The card base and the large rectangle use Rich Razzleberry card.

So there you have it, four gorgeous (well I think they are gorgeous) cards using the beautiful flower from the Graceful Garden stamp set.  I really wanted to showcase the Rectangle Stitched Framelits Dies and the beautiful Buffalo Check background, did I do it?  I would love to hear what you think.

Bye for now,

Note Card Set

February 11, 2019

I saw a card on Pinterest (sorry I can’t find it now, let me know if it is yours)  which I thought was pretty and decided to take the idea and use it to create a quick set of Very Vanilla Note cards.  I used several different colours, however this first one uses Bermuda Bay to stamp the Bokeh Dots background image.  I set up all the stamped images on the Stamparatus because I knew I wanted to make more than one card.  I stamped the image from the Timeless Textures stamp set over the left hand edge of the background using Memento Tuxedo Black ink.  I stamped the greeting from the Beautiful Bouquet stamp set using Memento Tuxedo Black ink.  I coloured the flower using the Dark Night of Navy and Dark Old Olive Stampin’ Blends I also stamped the flower image onto the lower left hand corner of the envelope and coloured it using the same Stampin’ Blends.

The second Note card has the background stamped in Petal Pink with the image coloured using the Dark Real Red and Dark Old Olive Stampin’ Blends.  Again the envelope has the flower stamped and coloured using the same Stampin’ Blends.

The third Note card has the background stamped in Crushed Curry with the image coloured using the Dark Cajun Craze and Dark Old Olive Stampin’ Blends.  The envelope is decorated in the same manner as the others using the co-ordinating colours.

The last one has the background stamped using Soft Sea Foam ink and the image is coloured using the Dark Flirty Flamingo and Dark Old Olive Stampin’ Blends.  Once more the envelope is decorated in the same manner using the co-ordinating colours.

Such a simple card to create but I think these have turned out pretty, don’t you?

Bye for now,
