Seasons Greetings

September 14, 2021

I really love the large floral image from the Words of Cheer stamp set and just had to make one more card. This time, I cut Basic White card using one of the Basic Border Dies. I attached a piece of Peaceful Prints Designer Series Paper behind the bottom edge before attaching the panel to scored and folded Cherry Cobbler card. I stamped the large floral image from the Words of Cheer stamp set onto Basic White card using Memento Tuxedo Black ink. I coloured the image using Cherry Cobbler, Shaded Spruce and Dark Real Red Stampin’ Blends.

I cut out the image using the co-ordinating Christmas Cheer Die and attached it to the card front. I stamped the image once more onto Basic White card using Memento Tuxedo Black ink. I coloured the central part of each flower using Cherry Cobbler Stampin’ Blends and cut them out.

Each flower centre is attached to the co-ordinating flower on the card front using dimensionals. Lastly I added a Basic Rhinestone to the centre of each flower. I stamped the greeting from the Words of Cheer stamp set onto Basic White card using Cherry Cobbler ink and trimmed around the the greeting before attaching it to the card front. To decorate the inside of the card, I stamped part of the floral image from the Words of Cheer stamp st onto the lower left hand corner of Basic White card. I coloured the image as before using Cherry Cobbler, Shaded Spruce and Dark Real Red Stampin’ Blends. Do you love this bundle as much as I do?

Penguin Party

September 13, 2021

Today’s card uses the really fun Penguin Place stamp set from the latest Mini Catalogue. I love this set, because it can be used for birthdays or Christmas which makes it very versatile. It also co-ordinates with the Penguin Playmates 12″ x 12″ Designer Series Paper which you can earn for free during Sale-a-bration – Yay! For my card today, I die cut a piece of Misty Moonlight card using the Basic Border Dies and attached it behind one long edge of a piece of the Penguin Playmates Designer Series Paper. The panel is attached to the left hand side of Basic White card before stamping the greeting from the Penguin Place stamp set using Memento Tuxedo Black ink.

I also stamped the balloon string from the Penguin Place stamp set using the same ink. The balloon from the Penguin Place stamp set is stamped onto the balloon string using Misty Moonlight ink. I stamped the penguin image from the Penguin Place stamp set onto Basic White card using Memento Tuxedo Black ink. I added the feet and the nose/mouth using Bumblebee ink. I cut out the penguin image using the Layering Circle Dies and attached it to a Misty Moonlight scalloped circle cut using the same dies.

The image panel is attached to the card front using dimensionals. I stamped the present image from the Penguin Place stamp set onto scrap Basic White card three times, once using Misty Moonlight ink, once using Fresh Freesia ink and once using Just Jade ink. I cut out the images and attached them in front of the penguin image. To decorate the inside of the card, I stamped the balloon string image from the Penguin Place stamp set three times onto the lower left hand corner of Basic White card using Memento Tuxedo Black ink. I stamped a balloon image from the Penguin Place stamp set onto each balloon string using Misty Moonlight, Fresh Freesia and Just Jade ink.

This is such a bright, happy birthday card, don’t you think? If you haven’t received a copy of these catalogues, you live in Australia and don’t have a demonstrator, then please contact me so that I can get them to you.

Woorim

September 11, 2021

Today’s page shows off some photos from a holiday we had with my youngest daughters children at Woorim way back in January 2018. Looking at the photos, I can’t believe how quickly these children have all grown up! For the first page I attached three photos down the right hand side of a Basic White 12″ x 12″ page before attaching a strip of Night of Navy card. I attached a strip of Balmy Blue card across the left hand side of the page. I cut a piece of Night of Navy card using the largest die from Scalloped Contour Dies which I attached behind the left hand edge of Pacific Point card.

I attached the photo of Noah to the panel before attaching it to the left hand side of the page. I cut the letters for the title from Basic White card using the Playful Alphabet Dies. I stamped “you are so loved” from the A Grand Kid stamp set onto Basic White card using Night of Navy ink. I cut out the greeting using one of the retired Be Mine Stitched Dies. I cut the Night of Navy frame using the same dies. I attached the Night of Navy frame to the page and attached the greeting in the centre. For the second page I attached a strip of Night of Navy card to the left hand side of a Basic White 12″ x 12″ page, with a strip of Balmy Blue card across the page. I cut Basic White card using the largest rectangle die from the Scalloped Contour Dies and attached it behind one of the photos before I attached them. I printed the journaling onto Basic White card which I attached to Night of Navy card before attaching it to the right hand side of the page. I added another strip of Balmy Blue card below the journalling. The heart on this page is cut from Night of Navy card using the retired Be Mint Stitched Die.

It’s so nice to finally get these photos onto a page and into my album and I know that the grandchildren will enjoy looking at the page and remembering the fun we had.

Sending Christmas Cheer

September 10, 2021

Today’s card again uses the Words of Cheer Bundle which you will find in the new Mini Catalogue. I began this card by attaching two pieces of Peaceful Prints Designer Series Paper to Basic White card. You can earn this Designer Series Paper for FREE with a qualifying order during Sale-a-Bration. I stamped the greeting from the Words of Cheer stamp set onto the upper left hand corner of the Basic White card using Real Red ink. The whole panel is attached to scored and folded Real Red card. I stamped the floral image from the Words of Cheer stamp set onto Basic White card using Memento Tuxedo Black ink.

I coloured the image using Real Red, Shaded Spruce and Dark Cherry Cobbler Stampin’ Blends. The image is cut out using the co-ordinating Christmas Cheer Die. I attached the die cut to the card front partially covering the Designer Series Paper. I stamped the floral image from the Words of Cheer stamp set onto Basic White card using Memento Tuxedo Black ink.

This time, I only coloured the inside petals of each of the flowers using Real Red Stampin’ Blends. I cut out the inside panels for the flowers and attached then using dimensionals over the co-ordinating flower on the card front. Lastly I added Basic Rhinestones to the centre of the flowers. To decorate the inside of the card, I stamped part of the floral image from the Words of Cheer stamp set onto the lower left hand corner of Basic White card using Memento Tuxedo Black ink. I coloured the image once again using the Real Red, Shaded Spruce and Dark Cherry Cobbler Stampin’ Blends.

I really love how this card turned out. I used a card sketch I found on Pinterest as the starting point for this card and I love how it turned out. What about you? What do you think?

Words of Cheer

September 9, 2021

Yesterday on my Facebook Page I shared a video with some ideas for using the Words of Cheer stamp set and co-ordinating Christmas Cheer Dies. Today I am sharing another card I created using these products. I began by cutting the edge of a Real Red card base using the Basic Border Dies. I partially inked the greeting from the Words of Cheer stamp set with Real Red ink and stamped onto Basic White card cut using the Ornate Layers Dies. This panel is attached to the card front.

I cut the background die for the word “cheer” from Shaded Spruce card using the Christmas Cheer Die. The die cut is attached below the greeting onto the Basic White layer. I cut the individual letters for the word “cheer” from Basic White card and attached them to the Shaded Spruce die cut.

I cut the larger star image from the Christmas Cheer Dies twice from Real Red card. I also cut the two different leaf image dies from Shaded Spruce card. I layered the small leaf images and two of the stars together to create a “poinsettia” which I attached around the die cut “cheer”. I also added medium Basic Rhinestones to the centre of the “poinsettias”.

To decorate the inside of the card, I cut a piece of the Peaceful Prints Designer Series Paper and attached it to the right hand side of Basic White card. I die cut Shaded Spruce card using the holly die from the Christmas Cheer Dies and attached them to the top left hand corner of the Basic White card. I also die cut the holly berries from Real Red card using the Christmas Cheer Dies and attached them onto the holly leaves. The panel is attached to the inside of the card and because I cut down the card front, you can see the Designer Series Paper when the card is closed. The great thing about this Designer Series Paper is that you can earn it for FREE during Sale-a-Bration with a qualifying order.

This is such a fun bundle to create with. Have you noticed it in the Mini Catalogue?

Shaded Birthday

September 7, 2021

I am sharing a card with you today using a stamp set that I didn’t even see in the Annual Catalogue until the Sale-A-Bration catalogue arrived. You see, you can earn some dies for free during Sale-a-bration that co-ordinate with this lovely stamp set! I attached a piece of Fresh Freesia 2021-2023 In-Colour Designer Series Paper to scored and folded Thick Basic White Card. I cut Basic White card using one of the rectangle dies from the Scalloped Contour Dies and stamped “happy birthday” from the Shaded Summer stamp set onto the lower left hand corner using Soft Succulent ink.

I attached the stamped die cut to the centre of the Designer Series Paper panel. I stamped the floral image from the Shaded Summer stamp set onto Basic White card using Soft Succulent ink and used the co-ordinating Summer Shadows Die to cut it out. I stamped the same image onto scrap Basic White card using Fresh Freesia ink and cut out the flowers only.

I attached each of the flowers over the co-ordinating flower on the image stamped in Soft Succulent ink. I did trim away some of the Soft Succulent die cut to make the flowers stand out better before attaching the whole piece to the stamped Basic White rectangle. Just to add a little bling, I added some Basic Rhinestones to and around the floral image. To decorate the inside of the card, I stamped the same floral image from the Shaded Summer stamp set onto the lower left hand corner of the inside of the card using Soft Succulent ink. I also stamped the image onto scrap Basic White card using Fresh Freesia ink, cut out the flowers and attached them over the Soft Succulent stamped image. This is such a pretty stamp set with lots of love sentiments, made even better by being able to earn the co-ordinating dies for free. I hope I have inspired you to take another look at this stamp set when you are putting together your Wish List.

Happy Father’s Day

September 6, 2021

Hope that all the Dad’s and Grandfather’s had a wonderful day yesterday. I thought I would share the card I made for my Dad with you today. I embossed Basic White card using the Painted Texture 3D Embossing Folder. I attached a piece of In Good Taste Designer Series Paper which I cut on an angle across the bottom of the embossed card. I cut Night of Navy card using the “rope” die from the Smooth Sailing Dies and attached it to the top edge of the Designer Series Paper. The Basic White panel is attached to scored and folded Night of Navy card. I cut Basic White card using the Layering Circle Dies and masked a large section. I used a Blending Brush to add Night of Navy ink to the lower section of the circle. I removed the masks and masked the coloured section of the circle before adding Coastal Cabana ink using a Blending Brush. I attached the Basic White circle to a Night of Navy scalloped circle cut using the Layering Circle Dies.

The circle panel is attached to the card front using dimensionals. I stamped the small sailing ship from the Sailing Home stamp set onto Basic White card using Memento Tuxedo Black ink. I stamped the anchor image from the Sailing Home stamp set onto Basic White card using Night of Navy ink. I cut out the images using the co-ordinating Smooth Sailing Die. I coloured the sailing ship using the Light Night of Navy, Light Smoky Slate, Dark Daffodil Delight and Dark Poppy Parade Stampin’ Blends. I attached the sailing ship to the coloured Basic White panel. I tied a length of White Bakers Twine from the Baker’s Twine Essentials Pack through the anchor and attached it to the card front using dimensionals where necessary.

I stamped “happy father’s day” from the A Wish For Everything stamp set onto Basic White card using Night of Navy ink. I punched out the greeting using the Double Oval Punch. The greeting is attached to a Night of Navy scalloped oval punched using the Double Oval Punch. The greeting is attached to the card front using dimensionals where necessary. To decorate the inside of the card, I stamped the small sailing ship onto the lower left hand corner of Basic White card. I coloured the image using the same Stampin’ Blends as the image on the front of the card. I attached the piece of Designer Series Paper I had left after cutting the piece for the front of the card which is also on a diagonal. I cut another “rope” image from Night of Navy card using the Smooth Sailing Die. I also cut the “rope knot” from Night of Navy card using the same dies. I attached the “rope” and then the “knot” across the top of of the Designer Series Paper.

I love the way this card turned out. Although my Dad was not into “sailing ships” he was in the Navy for a long time and he still loves the sea.

Scotts Head

September 4, 2021

The photos on today’s pages were found in my box of photos and go back to November 2018. We stayed a week and caught up with a group of our friends. I attached pieces of the black patterned Pattern Party Designer Series Paper across both Basic White 12″ x 12″ pages. I did cut a “v” in each end of the narrow strips of Designer Series Paper using the Tailored Tag Punch. I attached the photos to the page without adding any cardstock layers.

The title is cut from Basic Black card using the Playful Alphabet Dies. I wanted to add some decoration and decided to add some shells and seaweed images from the Friends are Like Seashells stamp set. I used Blushing Bride, So Saffron, Flirty Flamingo Sahara Sand and Mossy Meadow ink to stamp the images. I decided to fussy cut the images and not use the co-ordinating Dies. I arranged the seashells and seaweed on the bottom corners of both pages.

I am happy with the way these pages turned out. I got a lot of photos on the pages because the photos were all 3″ x 4″. Let me know what you think.

Shaded Summer Birthday

September 3, 2021

Today’s card once more uses the Shaded Summer stamp set and Summer Shadow Dies which I featured on this weeks Facebook Live. I used the Textures and Frames stamp set to add So Saffron ink across the Basic White Panel. I stamped happy birthday from the Shaded Summer stamp set before attaching the Basic White panel to Gorgeous Grape card and then scored and folded Pear Pizzazz card. I cut the large more solid flower die from Summer Shadow Dies from Highland Heather and Petal Pink card.

I die cut the large detailed flowers from Gorgeous Grape and Blushing Bride card. I attached the co-ordinating flowers together before attaching them to the lower left hand corner of the Basic White card. I die cut Petal Pink, So Saffron and Highland Heather card using the small solid flower from the Summer Shadow Dies. Each of the flowers is attached to the Basic White card using mini dimensionals.

I die cut the solid leaf from the Summer Shadow Dies from Soft Sea Foam card and the detailed leaf from the same dies from Pear Pizzazz card. I attached the leaves together before attaching the leaf to the card front with the stem underneath the Highland Heather flower. I added Basic Rhinestones to the centres of all of the flowers. To decorate the inside of the card I stamped the greeting from the Peaceful Moments stamp set onto Basic White card using Gorgeous Grape ink. I attached another leaf die cut from Soft Sea Foam and Pear Pizzazz card using the Summer Shadow Dies.

I’ve surprised myself again with this card, it has turned out so much better than I imagined.

Thank You

September 2, 2021

Yesterday in my Facebook Live I shared some cards made using the Shaded Summer stamp set from the Annual Catalogue and the Summer Shadow Dies which are Free with a qualifying order during Sale-A-Bration. For today’s card, I stamped the greeting from the Shaded Summer stamp set onto the lower right hand corner of Basic White card using Early Espresso ink. I embossed the stamped Basic White card using the Tasteful Texture 3D Embossing Folder before attaching a piece of In Good Taste Designer Series paper to the left hand side.

The panel is attached to scored and folded Early Espresso card. I cut a rectangle from Early Espresso card using the Stitched Rectangle Dies and attached it to the card front using dimensionals. I cut a circle from Sahara Sand card and punched and then used the same circle to cut away to top of the circle before embossing the card with the Painted Texture 3D Embossing Folder. I cut a straight edge in the piece of card I cut from the circle and attached it to make a base for my “flower pot”.

I stamped the image from the Shaded Summer stamp set onto Basic White card using Sahara Sand ink. The image is coloured using the Dark Flirty Flamingo, Dark Granny Apple Green and Dark Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Blends. I cut out the image using the co-ordinating Summer Shadow Dies. I attached the floral image to the top of the Sahara Sand “flower pot” before attaching the whole piece to the Early Espresso stitched rectangle. To decorate the inside of the card, I stamped another greeting from the Shaded Summer stamp set onto Basic White card using Early Espresso ink. I stamped the leafy image from the Shaded Summer stamp set beside the greeting using Sahara Sand ink. I used the Dark Granny Apple Green Stampin’ Blend to add a little colour the image. I attached a piece of the same pattern In Good Taste Designer Series Paper across the bottom of the stamped panel.

I have to say that this card turned out way better than I expected it to. I hope you like it too.

Bye for now,

Kris
