Poppy Moments See Through Card

Hi and welcome to my Blog today.

This week I have been working a special for a very special person, my Mother as her birthday is not far away.

Poppy Moments See Through Card

For this card I have used the products from the Peaceful Poppies Suite found in the Stampin’ Up! ® Mini Catalogue.

I have ‘CASED’ this card from Jennifer McGuire. She has a wonderful video showing how to make a this card.

In making this card I have made a couple of changes from the products Jennifer used.

  • I have used products from the Stampin’ Up! ® 2020 Mini Catalogue – Poppy Moments Dies
  •  This card is a three fold card and by having the fold to the side instead of the top I was able to make the card base with only the join to card front.

This card was not a hard card to make but I did have to play with it to get the layout of flowers and leaves the way I wanted it.

Jennifer suggests to use ‘Glad Press’n Seal’, glad I had this in my stash as it would have taken a lot longer with out it. When removing it, take it very slow and gently so not to damage the die cuts.

Breathtaking Bouquet – Water Colour

Welcome to my Blog, I hope you enjoy reading today’s project.

Breathtaking Bouquet

Breathtaking Bouquet is one of the many products from Stampin Up!  ® Mini Catalogue that soon will be leaving us. I have enjoyed working with this stamp and have made a few beautiful cards from it.This stamp makes a wonderful back ground stamp or you can colour it with Pigment Sprinkles, Water Colour Pencils or with the Stampin’ Pads & Aqua Painters, as I have done with this project.

With the one Stamped and water coloured image I created three cards.

Forever Blossoms – Partial Die Cut

Hi and welcome to my Blog.

Today’s card was inspired by a video from Jennifer McGuire on Partial Die Cuts.

What is ‘Partial Die Cutting?

Partial Die cutting is just what it says… your only cutting part of the die. But in this case we are using two dies and on each one your cutting only a part of the die. The products I used  for my card are Stampin’ Up! ® Forever Blossoms Bundle and Stitched so Sweetly Dies.

I found it wasn’t as easy as it looked at first and it took me about 6 attempts to get something that I was happy with. The down side of this technique is now my dies are slightly bent…they still work so that’s OK.

The image was then coloured using Stampin’ Up! ® Blends.

Products & Measurements used…

How did I make this card…

  • Stamping, die cutting & colouring the image – I would suggest watching Jennifer McGuire’s video
  • On either side on the label portion of the cut out I punched a small hole so later ribbon can be threaded through.
  • Colour a length of Ribbon as per video linked below.

  • With smaller mat piece (8.5 x 11.5 cm) cut with one of the scallop stitch die from the Stitched so Sweetly dies and emboss with Scripty 3D Embossing Folder.
  • Adhere the two mats together.
  • Place dimensionals onto the back of the die cut image..DO NOT remove the backings
  • How to thread the ribbon – start at the left hole and take one end of the ribbon from the back to the front. At this point you can place the mats under the image (do not remove backings from the dimensionals). Then take the ribbon behind the mats and across to the left side. Put the two ends of the ribbon together and thread through the right hole on the stamped image. While the ribbon is loose remove backings from the dimensionals and adhere in place. Tie a bow and trim.
  • With Multi Purpose Glue attach the mats to card base.
  • Sentiment – stamp sentiment onto a piece of basic Black cardstock using VersaMark and White Embossing Powder. Adhere the sentiment to card with the mini dimensonals.

Timeless Tulips

Today’s card was created using  Stampin’ Up! ®  Timeless Tulips stamps and Faux Water Colour Technique.

How to achieve a Faux Water Colour look.

  • Ink up the Tulip image with Mango Melody ink and sponge Poppy Parade Ink around bottom edges and up one side.
  • Stamp image onto Shimmery White cardstock
  • With Aqua Painter lightly go over the stamped image with a slightly wet brush to blend colours.

Products & Measurements used…

How did I make this card…

  • Stamp the smaller tulips directly onto the card front along with stems and leaves following the above directions.
  • The two larger tulips and two leaves were stamped onto a scrap of Shimmery White cardstock and punched out using the coordinating punch.
  • Add a splatter Mango Melody and Poppy Parade ink onto the card front using watered down ink and Aqua Painter.
  • By using Stamparatus I was able to positioned the sentiment and stamped it in Poppy Parade.
  • Whisper White Crinkled Seam Binding Ribbon was wrapped around card front twice and adhered to the back with snail.
  • Then attach the card front to card base with dimensionals
  • Adhere the large tulips and leaves to card front also with dimensionals.
  • I then tied a double bow using a bow maker in the Whisper white Seam Binding and attach with a glue dot.
     It’s a simple card to make and I hope you give it a try and make one for yourself.

    Ornate Gardens in Blue…

    Hi and welcome to my Blog.

    Do you craft?

    Did you know doing craft is a great way of relaxing and getting rid of all that stress….

    In Australia we are having to stay home, trying to keep active in some way (that’s stress in it’s self)…and there is only so many times I can vacuum the floor in one day.

    Find a craft, activity or a few different activities to do so then you have a variety. I always have a few different things on the go…most of the time I would say that’s not a good thing because then nothing gets finished. But at this point in time ‘variety is the spice of Life’.

    Make sure that every 30 mins you get up and walk around the house…check on the kids, the cat or get a drink of water. Keep active…I’m lucky in that at my place I have a walking track in the house…when you walk in the front door you can go right go up the hall to family room and the continue through to the lounge and your back to the start…I’m just doing laps of the house.

    What have made today?

    I love Blue….For this card I used the different shades of blue along with Smoky Slate and Daffodil Delight from Stampin’ Up! ® Blends range to colour the flowers.I then used one of the frames from the Ornate Style bundle to cut the beautiful boarder. Use the Precision Plate when cutting out these frames, it will make cutting them so much easier. If you don’t have that plate then add a shim or a sheet of cardstock and run it though a few times until it has cut through.

    The mat of Whisper White card stock was run through the Big Shot using the Ornate Floral 3D Embossing Folder.

    I left this card free of any sentiment for two reasons, so it can be used for any occasion and I didn’t want to cover the stunning flowers.

    Products used from Stampin’ Up!

    •  Ornate Style Bundle 154119
    • Ornate Floral 3D Embossing Folder 152725
    • Whisper White cardstock
    • Blends Combo’s – Balmy Blue, Night Of Navy, Seaside Spray, Daffodil Delight, Smoky Slate
    • Momento Tuxedo Black Ink Pad

    Ornate Garden Suite will be available for you to order from 1 April – 31 May.

    I hope you find this video helpful in putting your card together.

     

    Thank you for stopping by and reading my Blog. I hope you’ve enjoyed my projects & that you’re inspired to get crafty!

    Peaceful Poppies

    Hi and welcome to my Blog.

    Wow! What a world we are living in at the moment…ever changing and it seems day by day. I Pray that you are all keeping safe and healthy at this time. Everything just seems so unreal…I keep hoping that I will wake up and this will be all over. But that unfortunately isn’t happening.

    The other morning I opened my daily devotional book I’m reading and it said ‘ Don’t fret or worry. Instead of worrying ,pray. Let petitions and praises shape your worries into prayers, letting God know your concerns. Before you know it, a sense of God’s wholeness, everything coming together for good, will come and settle you down. It’s wonderful what happens when Christ displaces worry at the center of your life. Philippians 4:6-7’

    It was wonderful to read these words, it gives me great comfort as like many of us our family are spread far and wide. We have to hand over to God all our fears and worry, knowing that he has it all worked out,  no matter what happens God is in control. So lets Pray together to God for his Blessings and healing and to give us peace of mind and heart.

    Today I want to share with you 3 cards I made for my ‘Face to Face’ class I held last month using Stampin’ Up!® products from the Peaceful Poppies Suite. This suite of products are in the Mini Catalogue and are available until June from my On-Line Store.

     

    Peaceful Poppies Tutorial

    I have also made a tutorial for each of these cards, so that you too can have a go at making them. While we are taking shelter in our homes at this time having something to make and share with others is great for our peace of minds.

     

    Each of the cards are simple to make but also with each one the skill level will steps up.

    If you don’t live in Australia and you use the US Letter Size cardstock, you may have to adjust the measurements to work for your cardstock. The only adjustments you would have to make is the Card base size and mat size.

    I hope this encourages you to make these cards, as I said the Peaceful Poppies Suite is still available to purchase. Order yours today, make them with your family and enjoy the time together.

    Keeping you all in my Prayers.

    Ornate Garden

    Hi and welcome to my Blog.

    The card I have made today was so much fun to make and it was inspired by Scrappy Strip Technique by Bruno Bertucci

    It’s a great way to use up all those of-cuts and it’s not as hard as it looks.

    Bruno has done a video on this and you can find it on Kylie Bertucci YouTube Channel.

    I must say I am in love with this beautiful die from the Ornate Boarder Dies.

     The products I have used are from Stampin’ Up! ® Ornate Garden Suite which is an Early Release product from the up coming new Annual Catalogue 2020-21. You will be able to purchase then products as part of the Early Release on the 1 April until 31 May. If you want these products now then Join my Team. You can add some of these products to your starter Kit


      How did I create the Boarder edge?

      I have trimmed 2.5cm off the side front of my card base. Then with a 4 cm x 14.9cm strip of cardstock I cut out the die and attached to the front of the card.

      I attached strips of the Ornate Garden Specialty Designer Series Paper  to a piece of cardstock measuring 15 x 10.5 cm and then trimmed down to 7.8 x 14.9cm, attach to card front with dimensionals.

      On Whisper White cardstock stamp your sentiment and cut using the stitched frame die from the Ornate Layer Dies.
