Bottled Birthday

September 6, 2022

Today’s card uses some more of the beautiful Design A Daydream 12″ x 12″ Designer Series Paper along with the Bottled Happiness stamp set. I attached a piece of the Design a Daydream Designer Series Paper to Basic White card and then scored and folded Petal Pink card. I embossed a piece of Petal Pink card using the Pretty Flowers Embossing Folder and attached it across the card front. I stamped the bottle image from the Bottled Happiness stamp set onto Basic White card using Soft Sea Foam ink.

I stamped the leafy image from the Bottled Happiness stamp set twice so that it sits inside the neck of the bottle using Soft Sea Foam ink. I attached the stamped panel to Soft Sea Foam card and then the card front using dimensionals. I stamped “happy birthday” from the Peaceful Moments stamp set onto Basic White card using Soft Sea Foam ink.

I punched out the greeting using the Double Oval Punch. I attached the greeting to a Petal Pink scalloped oval cut using the same Punch and then the card front using dimensionals where necessary. To decorate the inside of the card, I stamped the greeting from the Peaceful Moments stamp set onto Basic White card using Soft Sea Foam ink. I stamped the leafy image from the Bottled Happiness stamp set beside the greeting also using Soft Sea Foam ink. I attached a strip of the same pattern Design A Daydream Designer Series Paper across the bottom of the stamped panel.

This card is so soft and pretty. I hope the recipient loves it too.

The Dress reveal

September 3, 2022

I shared a page I created for these photos way back in June when she first purchased it. I had several people ask when they could see the dress which I wasn’t allowed to share until now. Her formal was held last night so here is the page with photos of Abigail in her dress.

Of course she looked way more glamorous last night with her hair and make up done, but I love that she wanted me to see this special outfit when she first got it. I am one lucky Nan! If you want more details on how I created the page check out this post.

Bye for now,

Artful Birthday

September 1, 2022

Today’s cards use the beautiful Artistically Inked stamp set and co-ordinating Artistic Dies. I began by stamping the greeting from the Artistically Inked stamp set onto two pieces of Basic White card using Polished Pink ink on one and Fresh Freesia ink on the other. I embossed the stamped Basic White card using the Painted Texture 3D Embossing Folder before attaching the panels to the co-ordinating colour card base. I cut Basic White card twice using the Fabulous Frames Dies and attached one to each card front using mini dimensionals. I stamped the large flower from the Artistically Inked stamp set twice onto Basic White card using Polished Pink ink.

I stamped the smaller flower four times onto Basic White card using Fresh Freesia ink. I stamped the double leaf image six times onto Basic White card using Soft Succulent ink. I also stamped the very small flower twice onto Basic White card using Daffodil Delight ink. All of these images were cut out using the co-ordinating Artistic Die. I layered one large flower, two smaller ones and three sets of leaves onto each card front using dimensionals where necessary.

I added the small Daffodil Delight flowers to the centre of the large Polished Pink flowers. For the final touch I added three Basic Rhinestones to each card. To decorate the inside of each card, I stamped the greeting from the Peaceful Moments stamp set twice onto Basic White card, once using Polished Pink ink and once using Fresh Freesia ink. I also stamped the large flower from the Artistically Inked stamp set onto the lower left hand corner of each Basic White panel using Polished Pink ink on one and Fresh Freesia ink on the other. I masked the flowers with a post-it-note mask and stamped the double leaf image twice around each flower using Soft Succulent ink. To finish the large flowers I stamped the very small flower onto the centre of each one using the co-ordinating ink which I stamped onto scrap paper first.

I am very happy with the way these cards have turned out and I love the texture on the gorgeous frame. I have a couple of special ladies in mind for these cards and I hope they love them too.

Happy Anniversary

August 30, 2022

Today’s card is a little bit of fun, I decided to use the duck image from the Stylish Sketches stamp set (FREE during Sale-A-Bration with a qualifying order) to create an Anniversary card! I embossed Basic White card using the Timeworn Type 3D Embossing Folder and attached it to scored and folded Soft Suede card. I attached a piece of Designer A Daydream 12″ x 12″ Designer Series Paper across the bottom of the embossed card and attached a narrow strip of Soft Suede card across the top.

I stamped the duck image from the Stylish Sketches stamp set onto Basic White card using Memento Tuxedo Black ink. I coloured the image using Daffodil Delight & Soft Suede Stampin’ Blends before cutting out the image using the largest circle from the Layering Circle Dies. I stamped the greeting from the Celebrating You stamp set onto the image panel using Soft Suede ink. The stamped panel is attached to a Soft Suede scalloped circle also cut using the Layering Circle Dies.

The whole panel is attached to the card front using dimensionals. To decorate the inside of the card, I stamped another greeting from the Celebrating You stamp set onto Basic White card using Soft Suede ink. I attached a narrow strip of the same pattern Design A Daydream Designer Series Paper and a very narrow strip of Soft Suede card across the bottom of the card.

Day 3

August 27, 2022

Today’s page highlights our overnight stay at Tambo on our way to Winton. We love the drive through sites at the Motel which is right in town. Unfortunately it was Sunday so nothing was open but we did manage dinner at the pub. I attached pieces of He’s The Man 12″ x 12″ Specialty Designer Series Paper across a Basic White 12″ x12″ page.

I printed my journaling onto one of the die cuts from the He’s The Man Specialty Designer Series paper and attached it so that it sits behind the edge of the photos on the right hand side of the page.

I attached another of the die cut pieces from the Specialty Designer Series Paper and attached the title which I cut from Early Espresso card using the now retired Playful Alphabet Dies. I also attached the die cut tree from the Specialty Designer Series Paper beside the title panel. So simple (what else would it be) but lots of memories.

Bye for now,

More Love & Light

August 25, 2022

For today’s card, I decided to pair the Lighthouse Point Bundle with the Oceanfront stamp set. I stamped the “sand” image from the Oceanfront stamp set onto Basic White card using Sahara Sand ink. I stamped the “sky” image from the Oceanfront stamp set twice above the “sand” image using Bermuda Bay, making sure to overlap the images. I used the same stamp to add Coastal Cabana ink to cover the rest of the panel, also overlapping the stamps to give more texture. I stamped the large grass image from the Oceanfront stamp set twice onto the bottom of the stamped panel using Mossy Meadow ink.

The stamped panel is attached to the centre of scored and folded Night of Navy card. I die cut Night of Navy card with the large solid Lighthouse Die and Basic White card using the detailed Lighthouse Die. I also cut So Saffron card using the light Die from the Lighthouse Dies. I attached the three dies together before attaching them to the stamped panel. I stamped the double rock image from the Lighthouse Point stamp set twice onto Basic White card using Sahara Sand ink.

I cut out the images using the co-ordinating Lighthouse Die and attached them to the card front using dimensionals underneath the right hand image. I stamped the greeting from the Lighthouse Point stamp set onto basic White card using Night of Navy ink and cut it out using the smaller banner from the Lighthouse Dies. The greeting is attached to the card front using dimensionals. To decorate the inside of the card, I stamped another greeting from the Lighthouse Point stamp set onto Basic White card using Night of Navy ink. I also stamped the double rock image from the Lighthouse Point stamp set several times onto the lower left hand corner of the Basic White card using Sahara Sand ink. I added a couple of grass image from the Oceanfront stamp set using Mossy Meadow ink.

I am really starting to love this Bundle, so many possibilities.

August 23, 2022

Today’s card once again uses the Hippest Hippo stamp set, Hippo Dies and the Silver & Gold 6″ x 6″ Specialty Paper which you can earn for FREE during Sale-A-Bration with a qualifying order. For this card I attached a piece of Night of Navy card down the right hand side of a Basic White panel before embossing using the Painted Texture 3D Embossing Folder. I attached the embossed panel to scored and folded Smoky Slate card. I cut the Gold Dotted paper from the Specialty Paper using the largest circle from the Stylish Shapes Dies and coloured it using Night of Navy ink and a Blending Brush.

I attached the circle to the card front with a strip of Gold Foil over the bottom edge. I cut Bermuda Bay card twice using the “wave” die from the Hippo Dies and attached them together. The waves are attached to Basic White card before being cut out using the second largest circle from the Stylish Shapes Dies.

I made sure that only the outside edges were attached to each other. I stamped the hippo image from the Hippest Hippo stamp set onto Basic White card using Memento Tuxedo Black ink. I coloured the image using Light Smoky Slate and Dark Petal Pink Stampin’ Blends. I attached the hippo image to the circle making sure to slip it in between the waves. I cut Night of Navy card using the Hippo Dies to get the goggle image and also the breathing apparatus and attached the pieces to the hippo image. The image circle is attached to the card front using dimensionals. To decorate the inside of the card, I coloured a strip of the gold dotted Specialty Paper using Night of Navy ink and a Blending Brush. I attached the paper across the bottom of Basic White card and stamped the greeting from the Hippest Hippo stamp set using Memento Tuxedo Black ink.

Christmas

August 20, 2022

I created today’s page to use the Decorated Pines Dies which co-ordinates with the Decorated with Happiness stamp set which I shared in my Facebook Live this week. I cut two pieces of Merry Merlot 12″ x 12″ card and embossed the strips using the splatter folder from the Stripes & Splatters 3D Embossing Folders. I attached one embossed piece to the bottom of a Basic White 12″ x 12″ page and the second piece to the top of a Basic White 12″ x 12″ page. I used a Blending Brush to add Mossy Meadow ink to two silver pieces of the Silver & Gold 6″ x 6″ Designer Series Paper which you can earn for Free with a qualifying order during Sale-A-Bration. I attached one to each of the Basic White pages. I cut Basic Gray card to use as my photo mats and attached one large and one small piece to each page.

The large pieces will hold two 6″ x 4″ photos and the small ones will hold one 4″ x 6″ photo. I die cut Mossy Meadow card three times using the branch die from the Decorated Pines Dies. I attached two stems to the top left hand corner of one page and the third stem to the lower right hand corner of the second page. I die cut Silver Foil card using the bauble and bow dies from the Decorated Pines Dies. I attached the baubles and the bows to the branch stems. The Silver Foil 12″ x 12″ card is another item that you can earn for Free during Sale-a-Bration with a qualifying order. (You must use the item no for Sale-a-Bration or you will be charged the usual catalogue price.) I cut Merry Merlot card using the retired Playful Alphabet dies to create my title.

I don’t have any photos as yet but my pages are ready to add the photos from this coming Christmas.

Christmas Greetings

August 18, 2022

This week in my Facebook Live I shared the Decorated With Happiness Bundle and the Artistic Mix Decorative Masks. I decided today to share the same Bundle but this time using the Split Card Textures Dies. These dies are found in the Annual Catalogue and are stand alone dies which means they will co-ordinate with any stamp set you might already own. I think these kind of dies are amazing and love that Stampin’ Up! keeps adding them to the dies collection.

Anyway I cut Old Olive card using the Split Card Texture Die and attached it to Real Red card and then scored and folded Thick Basic White card. I die cut Basic White card using the Decorative Pine Dies and attached the decorations to the Old Olive panel.

I stamped the greeting from the Decorated with Happiness stamp set onto Basic White card using Real Red ink and punched it out using the scalloped oval from the Double Oval Punch. The greeting is attached to the card front using dimensionals. To decorate the inside of the card I stamped the greeting from the Decorated with Happiness stamp set onto Basic White card using Real Red ink. I also stamped one of the bauble images from the same stamp set also using Real Red ink. I love the effect of these dies and of course you could rotate the panel and have the solid panel on the right instead of on the left of the card front. I can’t wait to try these dies with other stamp sets in my collection.

Today’s card uses the Stylish Sketches stamp set which is FREE during Sale-A-Bration with a qualifying order. I embossed Very Vanilla card using the Timeworn Type 3D Embossing Folder and attached it to scored and folded Mint Macaron card. I attached two different pieces of paper from the Design A Daydream 12″ x 12″ Designer Series Paper to the embossed card. I stamped the leaf image from the Stylish Sketches stamp set onto Very Vanilla card using Memento Tuxedo Black ink.

I cut out the image using the largest circle from the Layering Circle Dies and coloured the image using Mint Macaron, Petal Pink and Light Soft Suede Stampin’ Blends. I stamped the greeting from the Celebrating You stamp set across the bottom of the Very Vanilla circle using Mint Macaron ink.

I attached the image circle to a Mint Macaron scalloped circle cut using the Layering Circle Dies. The image panel is attached to the card front using dimensionals. To decorate the inside of the card, I stamped another greeting from the Celebrating You stamp set onto Very Vanilla card using Mint Macaron ink.
