Message in a bottle

May 26, 2022

This week in my Facebook Live I shared some cards I created using the Bottled With Happiness Bundle. I really enjoyed “playing” with this bundle. Today’s card is a stepped up version of the cards I shared yesterday. I began by attaching a piece of Orchid Oasis 2022-2024 Designer Series Paper to the left hand side of scored and folded Thick Basic White card. I stamped the greeting from the Sending Smiles stamp set onto the lower right hand corner of the Basic White card front using Orchid Oasis ink. I cut a rectangle from Basic White card using the Stitched Rectangle Dies and punched the bottom of the panel using the Vintage Bottle Punch.

I attached one of the Vintage Bottle Shaker Domes behind the punched shape. I added some of the Effervescent Elements into the shaker dome and attached a piece of Window Sheet to close the shaker dome. I attached the Basic White rectangle to an Orchid Oasis rectangle cut using the Stitched Rectangle Dies then the card front.

I stamped the floral bouquet image from the Bottled With Happiness stamp set onto Basic White card using Sweet Sorbet ink. I added the leaf bouquet image from the Bottled With Happiness stamp set onto the floral image using Parakeet Party ink. I cut out the floral bouquet and attached it over the top of the shaker dome using doubled up dimensionals. I tied a bow in a length of white Baker’s Twine from the Baker’s Twine Essentials pack and attached it just below the bouquet of flowers. To decorate the inside of the card, I stamped the floral bouquet onto the lower left and corner of Basic White card using Sweet Sorbet and Parakeet Party ink.

I am so happy with the way this card turned out and I know that the person who receives it will love it too.

Perfect Birthday

May 24, 2022

Today’s card shows of the Perfectly Penciled 12″ x 12″ Designer Series Paper. This paper is gorgeous and lends itself perfectly to colouring. I embossed Basic White card and attached it to scored and folded Soft Succulent card. I cut a piece of the Perfectly Penciled Designer Series Paper and coloured it in using Highland Heather and Soft Succulent Stampin’ Blends. I attached the Designer Series Paper to Soft Succulent card and then the card front.

I stamped the greeting from the Peaceful Moments stamp set onto Basic White card using Highland Heather ink. The greeting is punched out using the Double Oval Punch. I attached the greeting to a Soft Succulent scalloped oval punched using the same punch and then the card front using dimensionals. To decorate the inside of the card, I coloured a narrow panel of the Perfectly Penciled Designer Series Paper using Highland Heather and Soft Succulent Stampin’ Blends.

I attached a narrow strip of Soft Succulent card behind the right hand edge of the Perfectly Pencilled Designer Series Paper and attached it to the left hand side of Basic White card. I stamped the greeting from the Peaceful Moments stamp set on the Basic White card using Highland Heather ink.

I love how pretty this Designer Series Paper looks when it is coloured. Most of the Black and White Designer Series Papers from Stampin’ Up! can be coloured to suit your own colour scheme. So clever!

The Girls

May 21, 2022

Today’s page shows off a photo of my Mum, myself and my sisters when we were all a lot younger! I began by attaching pieces of the now retired All Together 6″ x 6″ Designer Series Paper across a Basic White 12″ x 12″ page. I attached the photo over the Designer Series Paper without adding a border panel. The journaling was printed onto Basic White card and cut into strips before it was attached to the left hand side of the Designer Series Paper. I printed the title onto Basic White card and cut it out using my Paper Snips. I used the Butterflies & Flowers Layering Decorative Masks to create the floral piece using Highland Heather and Gorgeous Grape ink. I cut out the floral image before attaching it to the lower right hand corner of the photo. So simple, but I think it is so pretty.

To A Classic

May 19, 2022

Today’s card shows off the He’s All That Bundle from the new Annual Catalogue. I cut two pieces of He’s The Man Specialty Designer Series Paper and attached them to Basic White card. I attached a narrow strip of Early Espresso card across the panel before attaching it to scored and folded Early Espresso card. I stamped the greeting from the He’s All That stamp set onto Basic White card using Early Espresso ink.

I cut out the greeting using the rectangle die from the All That Dies. The image panel is attached to the card front using dimensionals. To decorate the inside of the card I attached a narrow strip of the He’s The Man Specialty Designer Series Paper across the bottom of Basic White card.

I stamped another greeting from the He’s All That stamp set onto the Basic White card using Early Espresso ink. What I love about this card, is that the Designer Series Paper does all the hard work. Adding a simple greeting and using a die to create the main focus makes it fun, quick and easy to create great male cards. I am sure that you will also find the He’s All That Product Suite fun to create with. The specialty paper is amazing as well, such great colours to work with.

Happy Mother’s Day

May 9, 2022

I made this card some time ago whilst waiting for my pre-order to arrive. I did CASE the new catalogue and you can find the example on page 20. I liked this card so much I haven’t shared until now because I wanted to give it to my Mum. I stamped the border image from the Daffodil Daydream stamp set across Fresh Freesia card using Rich Razzleberry ink before attaching it to scored and folded Thick Basic White card. I cut Rich Razzleberry card using two of the Stitched Rectangle Dies to create an open rectangle which I attached to the stamped Fresh Fressia card. I cut three sets of leaf/stems from Granny Apple Green card using the Daffodil Dies and attached them to the card front.

I layered the stems so that it looks like a bouquet. I stamped the large floral image from the Daffodil Daydream stamp set onto Basic White card using Memento Tuxedo Black ink. I coloured the image using Daffodil Delight and Granny Apple Green Stampin’ Blends and cut it out using the co-ordinating Daffodil Die. I wrapped the stem of the floral image using White Crinkled Ribbon and tied a bow.

The floral image is attached over the die cut leaf/stems. I stamped the greeting from the Daffodil Daydream stamp set onto Basic White card using Rich Razzleberry ink and cut it out using one of the Layering Circle Dies. I attached the greeting to the card front, slightly tucking it beneath the floral bouquet. To decorate the inside of the card, I stamped the border from the Daffodil Daydream stamp set across the bottom of Basic White card using Rich Razzleberry ink. I stamped the small floral image from the Daffodil Daydream stamp set onto Basic White card and coloured it using Daffodil Delight and Granny Apple Green Stampin’ Blends. I cut out the image using the co-ordinating Daffodil Die and attached it to the lower left hand corner of the stamped Basic White card.

As I said I loved this card and gave it to my Mother for Mother’s Day. If you check the catalogue on page 20 you will see that my version is slightly different but totally inspired by the version in the catalogue.

Bye for now,
