A ride in the park

June 26, 2017

This card is one that I created for last week’s class at Beachmere.  When I was looking for designer series paper to add to the card, I found a big bag of retired papers and I really have no idea what pack this paper is from but it was just what I wanted.  I attached the (mystery) Designer Series Paper to the left hand side of Whisper White card.  I stamped the greeting from the Work of Art stamp onto the lower right hand corner of the card using Memento Tuxedo Black ink.  The Whisper White card is attached to scored and folded Basic Black card.  I cut Whisper White card using the Layering Squares Framelits Dies and stamped the car from Guy Greetings using Memento Tuxedo Black ink.  I cut a mask from a post-it-note and attached it over the stamped card.  I inked the trees from the Lovely as a Tree stamp set using Lemon Lime Twist and added a bit of depth of colour by thumping the trees with the Tranquil Tide Stampin’ Write Marker.  I stamped the image from the Work of Art stamp set using Sahara Sand ink to represent the road.  I removed the mask and attached the stamped panel to a Sahara Sand scalloped square also cut using the Layering Squares Framelits Dies.  The panel is attached to the card front using dimensionals.

To decorate the inside of the card, I punched a narrow strip of Sahara Sand card using the Decorative Ribbon Border Punch, attached it behind one long edge of the same (mystery) Designer Series Paper I used on the front of the card before attaching to the bottom of Whisper White card.

Male cards are not easy for me to make, I think it is because I get caught up in all the gorgeous flowers and “girly” things in the catalogue.  Anyway, I think it turned out great and so did the ladies at class.  What do you think?

Bye for now,

Card 3 – One Sheet Wonder

June 24, 2017

This is the last card i created with my One Sheet Wonder template using the Delightful Daisy Designer Series Paper.  I punched a narrow strip of Old Olive card using the Decorative Ribbon Border punch.  The punched border is attached behind one long edge of the Designer Series Paper, this time using the small scallop edge and not the decorative edge.  I attached the panel to the left hand edge of Whisper White card.  The greeting from the Thoughtful Banners stamp set is stamped onto the lower right hand corner of the Whisper White card using Memento Tuxedo Black ink.  The Whisper White card is attached to scored and folded Night of Navy card.  I punched three daisies from Night of Navy card using the Daisy Punch and sponged the edges of the petals using Night of Navy ink.  The daisies are attached on top of each other using Glue Dots and making sure to stagger the petals.  Three 3/4″ scalloped circles (retired punch) are punched from Daffodil Delight card.  I cut between the scallops to create petals and sponged the edges using Daffodil Delight ink.  The Daffodil Delight scalloped circles are attached on top of each other using Glue Dots before attaching to the centre of the daisy.  The daisy is attached to the card front using Glue Dots, making sure to centre the daisy on the edge of the designer series paper.  The solid leaf is stamped onto Whisper White card three times using Old Olive ink which has been stamped off once.  The outline leaf is stamped over the  solid leaf using Old Olive ink.  I cut out the leaves and attached them to the right hand side of the card front around the daisy.  The finishing touch to the daisy is a large Clear Glimmer Dot.

To decorate the inside of the card I punched a narrow strip of Old Olive card using the Decorative Ribbon Border Punch and attached it behind one long edge of the Delightful Daisy Designer Series Paper.  The Designer Series Paper panel to the bottom of Whisper White card before attaching to the inside of the card.

This time I reversed the Designer Series paper to use the side with the gorgeous daisy images.  I love both sides of this paper and cannot choose between them.  What about you, which is your favourite side of this piece of Designer Series Paper?

Take 2 – One Sheet Wonders

June 23, 2017

This is the second card I made using the 6″ x 6″ One Sheet Wonder template.  For this card, I punched a long narrow piece of Daffodil Delight card using the Decorative Ribbon Border Punch and attached a piece behind each long edge of the Delightful Daisy Designer Series Paper.  The Designer Series Paper is attached to Whisper White card.  I stamped “thank you” from the Daisy Delight stamp set onto the lower right hand corner of the Whisper White card using Memento Tuxedo Black inkThe Whisper White card is attached to scored and folded Night of Navy card.  Onto another piece of Whisper White card I stamped various images from the Daisy Delight stamp set using Old Olive, Night of Navy, Daffodil Delight and Crumb Cake ink.  The stamped card is cut using the largest circle from the Layering Circles Framelits Dies.  I cut a scalloped oval from Night of Navy card using the largest scalloped circle in the Layering Circles Framelits Dies.  I attached the stamped circle to the scalloped circle die and then the card front using dimensionals.

To decorate the inside I used the very narrow piece of Designer Series Paper which was left over from the 6″ x 6″ piece once I had cut it according to the template, which I attached across the bottom of Whisper White card.  I attached the Whisper White panel to the inside of the card.

Another card I am very happy with using these gorgeous co-ordinating products.  What do you think?  Which card do you like the best?  I’d love to hear.

Daisy Delight One Sheet Wonder

June 22, 2017

I found three different one sheet wonders using a 6″ x 6″ piece of designer series paper quite some time ago on Pinterest.  Today I had a play using one of the cutting templates and the Daisy Delight Designer Series Paper.  This is the first card I created.  I stamped “thank you” from the Daisy Delight stamp set onto the lower right hand corner of Whisper White card using Memento Tuxedo Black ink.  I punched a narrow strip of Daffodil Delight card using the Decorative Ribbon Border Punch.  I attached the punched Daffodil Delight card behind one long edge of the Daisy Designer Series paper and attached it to the top of the stamped Whisper White card.  The stamped card is attached to scored and folded Night of Navy card.  I punched three daisies from Daffodil Delight card using the Daisy Punch I sponged the petals of the card using Daffodil Delight ink and then layered the three daisies one on top of the other, attaching them with Glue Dots and making sure to stagger the petals.  I punched Basic Black card three times using the retired 3/4″ scallop circle punch.  Each of the scalloped circles is cut between the scallops towards the centre, creating small petals.  I used a bone folder to add some dimension to the circles and then attached them to one another using Glue Dots. The daisy is attached to the card front using Glue Dots and a large Clear Glimmer Dot is attached to the centre.

To decorate the inside of the card, I punched a narrow piece of Daffodil Delight card using the Decorative Ribbon Border punch and attached the punched card behind one long edge of a piece of Delightful Daisy Designer Series Paper.  The Designer Series Paper is attached to the bottom of Whisper White card.  The whole panel is attached to the inside of the card.

I really love this Designer Series Paper, especially the way it has a faded look to some of the designs, including the one I used on this card.  What do you think?  Do you like it.  This card is destined for a customer who ordered using my Hostess Code recently.

Bye for now,

Happy Anniversary

June 20, 2017

My Mum and Dad are celebrating their 63rd Wedding Anniversary yesterday.  What an amazing milestone.  It must be awesome to look back and see how their family has grown.  I am one of three daughters and Mum and Dad have four granddaughters and one grandson, eight great granddaughters and eight great grandsons.  Unfortunately, we do not always get together as a family but maybe soon.

Anyway I was inspired by a sketch challenge at The Papercraft Crew to create my card.  I embossed Very Vanilla card using the Softly Falling Embossing Folder and attached it to scored and folded Thick A4 Very Vanilla card.  I am so excited that we have this this A4 card in Very Vanilla as well as Whisper White.  I cut two hearts from Soft Sky card using the Sunshine Wishes Thinlits Dies I cut through one of the hearts so that I could intertwine them before attaching to the lower right hand corner of the card front.  I tied a bow using the  Silver 1/4″ Natural Trim and attached it where the hearts intersect using a Glue Dot.

To decorate the inside I stamped a greeting from the Special Celebration stamp set onto the centre of the card using Soft Sky ink.  This stamp set is a great one to have in your stash, it covers just about every occasion you would ever need a card for.

Anyway once more congratulations and Happy Anniversary to my lovely Mum and Dad.

Bye for now,

Kris

Just a note

June 19, 2017

This card using the Oh So Eclectic stamp set and matching Eclectic Layers Thinlits Dies.  I cut Very Vanilla card using the large open cut framelit from the Eclectic Layers Thinlits Dies.  Doesn’t it create a gorgeous border?  I love how detailed it is, don’t you?  I stamped the greeting from the Flourishing Phrases stamp set onto the top right hand corner of the Very Vanilla card using Rich Razzleberry ink.  I wrapped the card with Bermuda Bay 3/8″ Mini Chevron Ribbon and tied a knot.  I stamped the leaves from the Oh So Eclectic stamp set twice onto Very Vanilla card using Old Olive ink and cut them out using the matching Eclectic Layers Thinlits Dies.  I stamped the flower onto Old Olive card using Old Olive card and cut it out using the matching thinlit.  I had the Rich Razzleberry flower laying on my desk from when I was creating my daughter’s birthday card, so I trimmed it down and attached it over the Old Olive flower.

To decorate the inside of the card, I stamped the leaf image from the Oh So Eclectic stamp set twice onto the lower left hand corner of Very Vanilla card using Old Olive ink.  I stamped the leaf image once more onto Very Vanilla card and cut it out using the matching thinlit die.  The additional leaf is attached over the stamped leaves before attaching to the inside of the card.

This is such a pretty product suite.  I can’t wait to play some more with the stamps and co-ordinating products.  If this isn’t on your wish list, you might need to at least consider it.

Bye for now,

Happy Birthday Emma

June 17, 2017

My youngest daughter, Emma, celebrates her birthday today.  She is an amazing woman and a beautiful daughter and I hope she has an wonderful day.  I fell back on an old layout which I love to create this card.  Funnily enough, all of you must love it too, because the cards I have pinned using this layout get lots of repins.  So, thank you.

I decided to break out some new product for this card – Yay.  I embossed all but the top third of Very Vanilla card using the new Pinewood Planks Embossing Folder.  This is a dynamic embossing folder and doesn’t need a bottom plate when running through the big shot.  I stamped the greeting from the Best Birds stamp set onto the top right hand corner of the embossed card using Rich Razzleberry ink.  I wrapped the top of the embossing with Silver 1/4″ Natural Trim and tied a knot before attaching to scored and folded Rich Razzleberry card.  I stamped the leaves from the Oh So Eclectic stamp set three times onto Shimmer card using Old Olive ink and cut them out using the matching Eclectic Layers Thinlits Dies.  I attached the leaves to the card front. I stamped the outline flower from the Oh So Eclectic stamp set onto Shimmer card and then used my Aqua Painter to spread the colour over the flower.  I cut the flowers out using the matching die.  I used my Clear Wink of Stella to colour the flower, just to add a little more sparkle.  I stamped the flower centre onto Shimmer card using Daffodil Delight ink and cut it out using the matching Eclectic Layers Thinlits Die.  The flower centre is also coloured with the Clear Wink of Stella before attaching to the centre of the flower.  I attached to the card front over the top of the ends of the leaves.

To decorate the inside of the card I inked the stem of the flower from the Oh So Eclectic stamp set using Old Olive ink and stamped them onto the lower left hand corner of Very Vanilla card.  I stamped the flowers once more onto Shimmer card using Rich Razzleberry ink.  I used the Aqua Painter to spread the colour over the flower and cut them out using the matching framelit.  I trimmed away the stems and added them to the stamped stems.  The one on the right is flat onto the card and the one on the left is on dimensionals.

I learned the colouring technique I used on the flowers from a tutorial that I purchased from my friend and fellow Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator, Vicky Wright.  Thanks Vicky, awesome technique and I love the finished look.

Now, I don’t know about you but I believe this stamp set will be hard to stop using.  The possibilities are endless and I love the fact that it has matching dies to cut out the flowers.  And what about that embossing folder?  I love how gorgeous the finish is and how deeply etched the embossing is on the card.  I am positive that you will be wanting to place these items on your next order.

Bye for now,

Kris
