Joyful Holly

Hi and welcome today to my Blog.

Joyful Holly Photopolymer Stamp set

My card today uses the Stampin’ Up! ‘Joyful Holly’. This is a simple card to make, you will have fun making this for your friends and family.

The Poppy Parade card front has been stamped all over using one of the Holly images Poppy Parade Stampin’ Pad.

The Joyful Holly stamp is a 2 step stamp – one stamp gives you the out line and the other fills in the image. It is a Photopolymer stamp so you can see through the stamp to line it up. I used the Stamparatus which allows me to line everything up and stamp multiple cards.

Stamparatus $85.00 AUD

Peaceful Nativity Bundle – Theater Card

Hi and welcome today to my Blog.

Peaceful Nativity Bundle

In my Card Making Class today we made this wonderful ‘Theater Card’ using the Peaceful Nativity Bundle ..and we had fun!

I had seen this style of card earlier this year and loved it…but just hadn’t found the products I wanted to use for it. Then the Stampin’ Up! ® 2020 Aug- Jan Mini Catalogue came out and as soon as I saw the Peaceful Nativity Bundle I knew this was what I wanted to do. So back in August I had decided on the stamp/dies bundle and even the Designer Series Paper…Brightly Gleaming Specialty Designer Series Paper…..I just hadn’t made the card as yet!

Then this week I had such a busy week I just hadn’t had time to make a card and prepare before the class…So what did I do…I knew what card I wanted to make and I had a link to the instructions. So I made a quick dummy card before the class started, just to make sure I knew what I was doing and so I could be aware of any problem areas.Good thing I did …..any problems that could happen where sorted. Great!

So everyone started with some cardstock and we all made the card together. It was a lot of fun and I think everyone enjoyed it. It gave everyone a chance to see how I design a card (layout wise, as the how to make the card was already done by someone else).

The tutorial I used is by Laurence Mirman, the link to here page is below for you to see https://lolascrapetcompagnie.blogspot

Her instructions were very good and translated well with the help of Google.

The only change I made was to make the two sliding panels at the front (Screen) slightly narrower. Laurence said to cut 4 pieces 10.5 x 14.8cm – one for the back, one for the very front and two for the moving screen.I cut down the two for the screen down to 10.2 x 14.8cm. By removing those couple of millimeters meant it fitted easier through the mechanism at the back a little better.

Images….

  • The stable and trees were die cut using Soft Suede cardstock
  • Star – Gold Brushed Metallic Cardstock
  • Jesus, Mary, Joseph and animals were stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black and coloured with Stampin’ Blends

This is a great interactive card, starting with a closed front you pull the tabs at each side and the screen opens up to reveal the beautiful scene of the Nativity. Here’s a 5 second video showing you how the finished card works.

I love it when a card like this goes together so well ( No mess ups in the class..by me!..LOL)…Mind you next time the class will be prepared well in advance.

May you days be merry & bright…..Curvy Christmas

Good Morning and welcome again to me Blog

May you days be merry & bright

Today is a very simple card great for the beginner stamper…This card uses the Curvy Christmas Stamp set from the Curvy Celebrations.

My card uses just one stamp set, 2 colours in Cardstock, 4 Stampin’ Ink Pads and a little bit of Bling – Wink of Stella .

Products used in this card are…

  • Curvy Christmas Stamp set
  • Whisper White Cardstock
  • Sahara Sand Cardstock
  • Misty Moonlight Stampin’ Pad

  • White Craft Ink
  • Wink of Stella

How to make this card.

  • Card Base Whisper White 14.9 x 21 cm, score at 10.5cm
  • Card Front Sahara Sand 10 x 14.4cm
  • Using the Shaded Spruce Ink  and the curvy trees..stamp 3 rows of trees off setting each one so they look like rolling hills.
  • Stamp the curvy Stars in the Misty moonlight. Here I stamped one in one direction and the turned the stamp 360° and stamped the second row of stars again offsetting the stamps a little.

**Each row of stamping is not the same so then it gives the card movement

  • Using Stazon Black Stamp the sentiment between the Trees and Stars.
  • Press some of the White Craft ink into the ink pad lid or onto an acrylic Block. Water down slightly and with a Water Painter colour in the branches on the trees.
  • Add extra water to the White Craft ink and add a few splatters

Curvy Christmas by Stampin’ Up!….. Part 2

Hi and welcome today to my Blog.

Curvy Christmas…Part 2

Yesterday on my Blog I showed a card using the Sketch Challenge from Global Design Project #GDP262.Where I created my own decorative paper using Blends and alcohol on Vellum. The card was a simple card to make and I want to show that by changing the printed paper to a DSP it can be made simpler still for you to CASE.

I have used the Classic Christmas 6 x 6″ in Sahara Sand. You can purchase this DSP in November as part of the Curvy Celebrations.

All is Merry & Bright… using the Peace & Joy Bundle

Hi and welcome today to my Blog.

All is Merry and Bright

This brings to mind twinkling lights and lots of tinsel and everyone happy and having a wonderful time…oh’ I LOVE Christmas!

My card today is not covered in tinsel and twinkling light but it does have the tradition colours of Christmas and the bright sparkly of gold.

For my card today I have used the Peace and Joe Bundle along with the Heartwarming Hugs Designer Series Paper, which is on SALE until the end of October. You can find the link below.

How to Make this card…

  • Real Red Card Base – Cut 14.9 x 21cm, scored at 10.5cm
  • Mossy Meadow Mat – 10 x 14.4cm
  • Mossy Meadow Spot Designer Series Paper (DSP)- 7.5 x 9.7cm
  • Strip Designer Series Paper – 7.5 x 9.7cm
  • Vellum – 9 x 12.5cm, die cut with Scalloped die Die No: 6 (see pic below)
  • Whisper White cardstock -7 x 10 cm die cut with Scalloped die Die No: 4 (see pic below)
  • Emboss the die cut Whisper White with the Dainty Diamonds 3D Embossing Folder 152702
  • Brushed Metallic Cardstock – 4 x 11cm – adhere Adhesive sheet on the back before die cutting the word ‘Bright’. When peeling apart the die and Cardstock make sure you don’t loose the dot of the ‘i’…If you do then use a Rhinestone Jewel as the dot.
  • Whisper White Card Insert – 10 14.4cm.

How!

  • Using Multi-purpose glue adhere the Mossy Meadow spot DSP to the Moss Meadow mat allowing 1.5 mm around top and sides.
  • Adhere the DSP Strip to the bottom of the mat lining it up with the spot DSP along the sides and with 1.5mm around sides and bottom. The strips will overlap the spots.
  • Adhere the mat to the card front with either Seal or Multi-purpose glue
  • Peel the backing of the adhesive on the word ‘Bright’ carefully and attach to Whisper White Panel. Make sure that the part of the cross on the ‘T’ is attached to the panel, as in my photo above.
  • Turn the panel over to the back, the words that over hang are sticky from the adhesive. Pat them down with your embossing Buddy or a small amount of corn flower. This just removes the sticky.
  • Place dimensionals on the back of the Whisper White die cut & embossed panel and adhere onto the Vellum.
  • Add some Multi-purpose glue to the back of the vellum where the Whisper white covers it and glue to the card front.
  • On a scrao of Whisper White cardstock stamp the words ‘Merry’ & ‘And’ using Real Red Ink. Cut out by hand and adhere to card front using the Mini Dimensionals
  • Add some Gold Glitter Enamel Dots to your card
  • Attach the Whisper White Insert to the inside of the card

Joy to the World

 

Hi and welcome today to my Blog.

Joy to the World

This is heading into my favorite time of the year…Where we celebrate the Birth of Christ and what JOY that brings of Salvation and Hope.

My card today I have used products from the Peace and Joy Bundle 155167. This card is a slim line card, the finished card measures 10 x 21 cm (cut 20 x21cm, score 10cm). This is a simple card to make with the only stamping on the label.

Here I used a Label die from the Stitched Nested Labels as the base for sentiment to sit on. The sentiment is ‘Joy – to the World’ and for the ‘Joy’ I used all the 3 dies from the Bundle. The beautiful Red Velvet Paper was used for the fine word die and I used the Adhesive Sheets on the back of the Red Velvet and the Whisper White die cut – to make adhering them together a breeze.

 

TIP – Once you have adhered all the 3 parts of ‘Joy” together place it onto of the Whisper White Label and lightly trace around it. This way you have an idea where you need to stamp. Shown here from another project made using the same Dies. The pencil line then can be rubbed away using a soft eraser.

Christmas Gleaming Tee-Pee Card

Hi! Welcome today to my Blog.

Christmas Gleaming Tee-Pee Card

For years I have looked at this style of card and have wanted to make one…Yay! Now I have done it….what do you think?

For this card I have used some of the Christmas Gleaming Variety Bundle 156082 that is a returning product in the Aug-Jan 2020 Mini Catalogue. Oh…and not forgetting the Punches that is included in the Bundle

This card when folded flat will fit into our Australian Std C6 envelope. 

The challenging thing when making this card was making and attaching the embellishments to the front of this card. You need to make sure that when you fold the card flat that the ‘Merry Christmas’ sentiment goes to the left and not to the right hand side fold line. It is also easier to put your embellishments onto the card when it is folded into the Tee-Pee.

Sometime next week I will post a video about this card so stay tuned….

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
  • Real Red DSP Mat – 14.1 x 9.7cm
