All Things Fabulous

My card today features Stampin’ Up!  All Things Fabulous Bundle 154112…..I love how this card turned out…What do you think?

I love the stark contrast between the Basic Black  and the other colours, the black just makes everything ‘POP’. 

All Things Fabulous is a ‘Two Step’ stamp, I have used this Bundle previously to see the post Click …HERE. 

For this card I stamped the images onto the Fluid 100 Watercolour Paper 149612 and only used Magenta Madness Stampin’ Pad 153117  for the flower and Granny Apple Green Stampin’ Pad 147095 for the leaves. By using the watercolour paper I was able to give the flower and leaves a watercolour look using the Water Painter 151298.

How did I do this….

The flowers have 3 parts, I used – 1A- the larger petals, 1B – medium size inner highlights and 1C – the smaller inner highlights.

  • Ink up 1A with Magenta Madness – stamp off twice onto a piece of scrap paper, giving you the lightest shade. Then stamp onto the watercolour paper.
  • Ink up 1B with Magenta Madness –  stamp off once and the line up over the previously stamped image and stamp.
  • Ink up 1C with Magenta Madness – NO STAMPING OFF..line up image again and stamp.

This will give you a flower all in the same colour but with different shades.

  • Then using a fine tipped Water Painter, filed with water. Go over the flower image allowing the colours to blend and bleed a little around the edges for that water colour look. I ever so slightly took the colour out a little around the edges as I didn’t want a white boarder around the images.
  • The leaves are just one stamp and I just stamped then went over with the Water Brush as above.

Have you tried the NEW Stampin’ Up! ® Cut and Emboss Machine149653……

  • WOW, it’s amazing. The lace die cut just cut out so smoothly and the finish on it is stunning. This machine is so worth the investment of $209..Before cutting the Whisper White Cardstock I added a Adhesive Sheet 152334, this makes adding it to your card so simple.
  • The Basic Black mat I used the Subtles 3D Embossing Folder 151775 to give the card front some texture rather than a flat black surface.
  • Sentiment was stamped using Momento Tuxedo Black onto Whisper White Cardstock.

Thank you for coming by today!

Joyful Holly & Toile Tidings

I’m still playing with Joyful Holly 153440. The simplicity of this stamp set allows it’s self to blend with other products. Stampin’ Up! ® have this year brought back some of the popular products from last years Holiday Catalogue. One of those products is the Toile Tidings Designer Series Paper (DSP) 150432 and they have teamed it up with the Joyful Holly in this years 2020 August – January Mini Catalogue. I like this DSP last year but I did not purchase it…so this year I have.

 So my card today is based on the Toile Tidings with some stamped images from the Joyful Holly.

The Toile Tidings DSP comes in 2 colours – Real Red and Very Vanilla or Garden Green and Very Vanilla. For this card I have used combinations of both colours to add contrast. I have also added mats under the two layers to give a slight break between patterns.

Measurements & Products used in this card are…

  • Real Red Card Base – 14.9 x 21cm, score at 10.5cm
  • Garden Green Mat – 14.4 x 10cm

Soap Gift Boxes

Hi and welcome today to my Blog.

Last week in my class we made these cute little Gift Boxes fill with a small cake of soap.These little boxes of soap make a great little gift for those times where you need something quick, for that unexpected gift

Soap Gift Boxes

You could use any Cardstock and Designer Series Paper to make Boxes with Belly Bands, here I have used Stampin’ Up! ® Peony Gardens Suite Collection.

These boxes made to the dimensions of the Soap.You could use any beautiful soap for this, the soap I used came in a box of 10 soaps – all  wrapped in cellophane. Each soap measured 5cm square with a depth of 1.8 cm. The finished size of my box is 5.5 cm square and a depth of 2 cm.

Here is a my measurement plan for cutting, scoring & folding of card stock.

Measurements Used –

  • Box – 9.5 x 17 cm, score along 9.5cm side at 2cm , 7.5cm. Score along 17cm length at 2cm, 7.5cm, 9.5cm, 15cm
  • Belly Band – 4.5 x 15 cm
  • Tag – scrap for stamp and die cut

How did I do That – Soap Gift Box Video

Watch the video where I show you how I made this basic box.

To finish these boxes I wrapped some Tulle Ribbon around the box and tie of in a bow. Stamp the small Peony image onto Whisper White cardstock using So Saffron Ink Pad. Stamp the ‘For You’ sentiment from the Beauty Abounds Stamp set. Punch a small hole and tie around center of the tulle box using bakers twine. Add Glue Dot under the bow and under tulle on the bottom of the box to hold in place.

Just Because…

Hi and welcome today to my Blog.

Have you signed up for my ‘Newsletter’ yet? I hope after today’s post you will consider ‘Signing Up!’.

As part of my newsletter each month I give you a FREE Tutorial that I have made just for that month. After 2 months I will then share that card on my Blog. Today’s card is one that I shared in my June Newsletter.

Just Because

For my card I have used Stampin’ Up! ® Flowers for Every Season Designer Series Paper and the Lovely You Bundle from the Annual Catalogue. By using the Designer Series Paper (DSP) and some simple stamping you can create quick and fun cards to share with family and friends. Here in the Southern Highlands each year in September we celebrate ‘Tulip Time’. This DSP reminds me so much of our beautiful gardens we have in the area on display.

The White Embossed sentiment from the Lovely You Stamp set is simple and beautiful. I love the use of two different fonts and ‘Just because’ can be used for so many different occasions.
