Memories and More

May 11, 2019

I don’t have a Memory Keeping page to share with you today but I do want to share some cards I made using the Happiness Blooms Memories and More cards and the co-ordinating Happiness Blooms Memories and More Cards and Envelopes.  Did you know that the 6″ x 4″  and 3″ x 4″ cards in and of the Memories and More card packs fit the envelopes perfectly. Of course these cards are designed to co-ordinate specifically with the Happiness Blooms Memories and More cards so that you can create really beautiful cards quickly and easily using these co-ordinating products.   You can find Whisper White Memories and More cards and envelopes in the Annual Catalogue but the Happiness Blooms Memories and More Cards and envelopes are Night of Navy and the envelopes are decorated with Night of Navy stripes.

When creating your cards you can add the finishing touch by using the die cuts included with the Memories and More cards, or leave the card just the way they are.  I have chosen not to add extra decorations to my cards and I think they turned out great.  The cards shown in the first picture are 4″ x 6″ cards and the ones on the right are 3″ x 4″ cards.  I really have to apologise for my Watermark being upside down in the photo of the 3″ x 4″ cards.  Maybe this was done after a couple of glasses of Wine!

So if you have some of these cards in you stash and they are not making it into your Memory Keeping pages, this might inspire you to create some cards.  I’d really love to hear what you think of these cards and maybe share some of the cards you have created using the Memories and More Cards.

Bye for now,

Happy Birthday Noah

May 10, 2019

My youngest Grandson turns 12 today.  Happy Birthday Noah, hope your day is amazing! I have been having fun making Bridge Fold cards and decided to create one for Noah.  My card base is Thick Whisper White card 8″ x 10.5cm.  I scored along the 8cm length at 1-1/4″ and 2-1/2″.  I flipped the card and scored from the other end at 1-1/4″ and 2-1/2″.  My bridge strip is 14cm x 1-1/4″.  All of the Tranquil Textures Designer Series Paper pieces are 1″ wide.  I cut Night of Navy card using the Well Written Framelits to create “happy” and “birthday”.  I also cut Night of Navy card using some old non-Stampin’ Up! dies to create the “12”. The greeting is attached to Whisper White card and then Night of Navy card. I attach this central panel before I attached the “bridge” section, just to make it easier to put together.  I cut the large balloon from Night of Navy card using the Up and Away Thinlits Dies.  The background pieces are cut from Crumb Cake and Fresh Fig card using the same dies.  I stamped the smallest balloon and the medium balloon from the from the Lift Me Up stamp set onto Whisper White card using Fresh Fig ink and Night of Navy ink.  The balloons are cut out using the co-ordinating Up and Way Thinlits.  I also attached a panel to the back of the card, so that I could write my message.  This was fun to create and I know that Noah loved it.  Have you tried one of these, if you haven’t you really should.  The best thing about this card is that it folds flat and will fit in a standard sized Australian envelope.

Bye for now,

I thought I would pop in today and share some more amazing examples of the Everything is Rosy Product Medley which is only available till the 31st May or while stocks last.  This Medley is amazing you get a stamp set, dies, designer series paper, foil paper, shimmer paint, ribbon, die cuts, the list goes on an on – and all for the amazing price of $139.00.  I can’t believe all the gorgeous product that you get in this Bundle and it doesn’t come with instructions, so you are only limited by your imagination.

I thought I would share a couple more images that I have found on the net using this beautful Product Medley.  I am not sure if you have been looking but some people have the most wonderful imaginations and have been sharing all sorts of projects, not just cards – boxes and the most amazing scrapbook album too.  I hope you don’t wait too long to place your order because this Medley is selling fast.   The Artisan Design Team for Stampin’ Up! shared some great projects.  Here are a couple for you to enjoy.

and what about this one

There are many, many more examples floating around on the net and you can also check out my Everything is Rosy Pinterest board where I have been madly pinning all the gorgoeus creations I can find.  Thanks so much to Tanya Rees and Angela Meiritz-Reid for the inspiration in these two gorgeous examples.

As I said before this Medley is selling fast and no wonder, so don’t delay placing your order.

Geared up 4 Ways

May 7, 2019

Today’s post is another one aimed at using up some of my Designer Series Paper.  I wanted to cut some of my Classic Garage Designer Series Paper and used an old method that I have tried before.  I cut four pieces of Designer Series Paper to the same size, then I cut each of the pieces into four more pieces.  I swapped around the pieces until I had one piece for each design on each Basic Black layer.  The panels are attached to scored and folded Basic Gray card.  I stamped the car from the Geared Up Garage stamp set onto four different colours of cardstock (Crushed Curry, Real Red, Tranquil Tide and Pumpkin Pie) using Memento Tuxedo Black ink.  I cut out the cars using the co-ordinating Garage Gears Thinlits Dies.  Each car is attached to a Very Vanilla oval cut using the Layering Ovals Framelits DiesThe Very Vanilla ovals are attached to Basic Black scalloped ovals cut using the same dies, and then the card front using dimensionals.

To decorate the inside of the cards, I cut out the large cog image from Basic Black card using the Garage Gears Thinlits Dies and attached them to Very Vanilla card.  I stamped the greeting from the Geared Up Garage stamp set onto Very Vanilla card using Memento Tuxedo Black ink and punched them out using the Tailored Tag Punch.  The greetings are attached over the Basic Black die cuts.

I am really happy with the way these cards turned out.  All the different pieces of Designer Series Paper co-ordinate so perfectly no matter which way you use them.  If you wished you could swap out some of the Designer Series Paper for coloured card which is embossed to add dimension.

And to be really kind you can download a PDF of the format I used to create these cards here.  Sorry but the dimensions are in centimetres.

Just a reminder that this stamp set and co-ordinating dies will carry over to the next annual catalogue BUT the bundle will not.  So if you want this stamp set and co-ordinating dies you need to purchase before the end of May to be able to save on the bundle purchase.

Bye for now,

Happy Birthday

May 6, 2019

Today’s card is one that I made for Sharron who celebrated her 50th birthday last weekend.  I hope you had an amazing day!   I punched a narrow strip of Rich Razzleberry card using the Decorative Ribbon Border Punch and attached it behind a piece of the Share What You Love Designer Series Paper which is cut on an angle.   The Designer Series Paper is attached to Whisper White card and Rich Razzleberry card before wrapping the top of the Designer Series paper using Rich Razzleberry 1/4″ Velvet Ribbon.  The whole panels is attached to scored and folded Thick Whisper White card.   I stamped the flower stem from the Beautiful Bouquet stamp set (this one is carrying over to the new catalogue) onto Whisper White card using Old Olive ink. I stamped various flowers from the Beautiful Bouquet stamp set onto the flower stem using Rich Razzleberry ink.  Some of the flowers were stamped off first to give a lighter impression.  I cut out the image using one of the ovals from the Layering Ovals Framelits Dies and attached it to a Rich Razzleberry scalloped oval and then the card front using dimensionals. Lastly I added some Basic Rhinestones to the centres of some of the flowers.

I decorated the left hand side of the inside of the card by cutting the “happy” and “birthday” from Rich Razzleberry card using the Well Written Framelits Dies.  I cut the “th” from birthday as well.  The numbers are cut using some old dies from my stash.  The greeting is attached to Whisper White card before attaching the panel to the inside of the card.  I decorated the right hand side by punching a narrow strip of Rich Razzleberry card using the Decorative Ribbon Border Punch.  The punched piece is attached behind one long edge of a narrow strip of the Share What You Love Designer Series Paper.  The designer series papeer is attached to Whisper White card before the whole panel is attached to the inside of the card.

I love how pretty this card turned out, don’t you?  Once again I hope you had a lovely birthday Sharron and that you enjoyed the surprise your Mum organised.

Summerhouse

May 4, 2019

When I was a young girl growing up my Grandparents had a greenhouse next to the outdoor toilet (do you remember those?).  Anyway that greenhouse was built during the early 1930’s when there wasn’t even a house.  Apparently my grandparents and assorted relatives used to travel from Redfern to East Hills to have picnics in the Summerhouse.  It’s amazing what you learn when you take the time to ask questions about photos that your parents have.  These photos were taken on one of those picnics.  I used Whisper White 12″ x 12″ card as the base for my page, which co-ordinates with the Natures Poem Designer Series Paper which I used to create the title using the Large Letters Framelits Dies.  I also used the same Designer Series Paper as mats for the journaling which I created on my computer.  The journaling and the mats are cut used the Rectangle Stitched Framelits Dies.  I printed the word family onto Whisper White card using my computer and stamped the image from the Rooted in Nature stamp set over the top using Sahara Sand ink.  I cut out the image and then attached the filigree piece.  This is cut from Shaded Spruce card using the Well Written Framelits Dies.  I also cut the image from Grapefruit Grove to create the flowers.  The image is attached to the page using dimensionals.  I will let you in on a little secret,  I do not permanently attach the journaling until I have checked it with my Dad because I find that sometimes, he might remember another name or give me a little more information to add.

I love creating these pages and guess what, it gives me another excuse to use my Designer Series Paper.  My stash is gradually disappearing, slowly but surely.

Bye for now,

Another Forever Lovely card

May 3, 2019

This card uses the Forever Lovely stamp set and All My Love Designer Series paper, which I have to admit I am really loving.  I am so happy that this stamp set will over from the Occasions Catalogue to the 2019 Annual Catalogue.  I embossed the right hand side of Whisper White card using one of the Petal Pair Embossing Folders.  Once embossed I attached the All My Love Designer Series Paper to the left hand side of the embossed card.  The panel is attached to scored and folded Lovely Lipstick card. I stamped the greeting from the Forever Lovely stamp set onto Whisper White card and cut it out using one of the Layering Circle Framelits Dies.  The greeting is attached to a Lovely Lipstick scalloped circle cut using the same dies and then the card front.  I stamped the large flower from the Forever Lovely stamp set onto scrap Whisper White card using Lovely Lipstick ink.  I cut out the flower using the co-ordinating Lovely Flowers Edgelits Dies.  I also cut the leaves from Soft Sea Foam card using one of these same dies.  I attached the leaves to the back of the flower and then the greeting circle using dimensionals.

To decorate the inside of the card, I attached a piece of the same Designer Series Paper across the bottom of Whisper White card.

This is a relatively simple card but I do love it’s style.  What about you?

Bye for now,

Kris
