Forever Greenery – You Can Do This…

My card today was created using products from the Stampin’ Up! ® Forever Greenery Suite.

This card has two main elements – the wreath and the water colour wash back ground.

The wreath brings together products such as the Forever Fern Bundle (stamps and Dies) and the Forever Gold Laser Cut Specialty Paper.

Remember..Purchase a bundle get a 10% discount

The back ground was created with a water wash of Garden Green and Pear Pizzazz Re-Inkers, using the new Water Painters. The broad brush Water Painter made this a quick and easy technique. When you purchase the Water Painters it comes in a set of 3 – 1 x fine tip painter, 1 x medium tip painter & 1 x large flat brush  painter. They are so easy to use, fill the barrel with water for easy colouring. You may find the brushes may stain but as long as you clean them well they are ready to go for your next project.

The Forever Greenery Suite collection is made up of 6 products and Stampin’ Up! ® has made ordering very easy all you need is one Item Code for the suite.

The suite includes the Forever Fern Bundle and the price has been adjusted with the 10% discount.

154143 The cost of this beautiful suite is $183.25…..

Below I have listed all the products from the suite that I have used if you wish to order them individually. They have all been linked to my On-Line Store for easy ordering.

June International Blog Highlights – Thank You

Hi and welcome to today’s Blog post.

Today I thought I would share with you another project using products from Stampin’ Up!® ‘Flowers for Every Season Suite’. This is such a huge suite and its jam packed with beautiful items that I know you will love.Now I am going to be honest with you I didn’t buy it all….I just got a few products thinking…that will do…I don’t need this or that. Well….I should have just got the lot! I’m now waiting on everything I didn’t order to come…..I hate waiting.

So lets get back to the ‘Flowers for Every Season Suite’…You can purchase this Suite using just one Product No 154132 (saves having to enter each number for all 12 products…that’s right there are 12 products in one suite….WOW!

The cost for this suite is $313.00 AUThere is so much in it!

So what have I made today using this suite….

Jar of Flowers- Thank You

For this card I have used Stampin’ Up! ® Jar of Flowers Bundle , which includes the Jar of Flowers Stamp set and Jar Punch.

When you purchase these two items as a bundle you get 10% Discount.

The punch cuts a Mason Jar and the Mason Jar Shaker Domes fits perfectly into them. The domes you can fill with anything you wish, today I have used the Flowers for Every Season Gems in my jar, but you could put seeds or coloured confetti.

The flowers I stamped 3 times and I used Paper Tole Techniques to get dimension and height. The bottom layer is complete, where the second layer I used the 3 large flowers and 2 smaller blue flowers. Then the top layer is only the two front flowers. In between each layer is dimensionals to give you the height.

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.

Products & Measurements used…


**  Products on the Last-Chance Products –

Mini Catalogue List – https://go.aws/34ZEwdy
Annual Catalogue – https://go.aws/2VvzSRK


How did I make this card…

  • Using the Stamparatus® stamp the Breathtaking Bouquet in VersaMark.
  • Cover with Embossing powder and set with a Heat Gun.
  • Colour the bouquet using the Stampin’ Pads with Aqua painters
  • Using the Soft Sea Foam and a sponge, sponge lightly over the watercolour paper around the edges and in between the flowers to give the back ground a Soft sea Foam hue.

  • Using the Stitched Rectangle Dies cut the painted imaged into 3 sections

  • Cut and fold card bases(measurements above)
  • 3 Emboss mats with Embossing folders – I used either of the 2 folders for each of the mats.
  • Adhere the mats to card base with Multi Purpose Glue on all three cards
  • Wrap White Bakers twine around the 3 images, attach Tassel and tie into a bow.
  • Attach dimensionals to back of the images and adhere to card fronts.
  • Slightly bend each of the 3 leaves on each leaf. Using Multi Purpose glue on steams of the leaves tuck them under the images where the Tassels are.
  • Add three Frosted and Clear Epoxy Droplets to each card.

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!
