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
  • Shaded Spruce Stampin’ Pad
  • Stazon Black
  • 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
  • You can also add some splatters with the Wink of Stella.

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

During the Month of October Stampin’ Up! ® are having the yearly Paper Sale…and the Heartwarming Hugs is one of the 15 paper designs in the sale. So if you LOVE our amazing DSP…NOW is the time to purchase it with a 15% discount.

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….

Joyful Holly & Toile Tidings

Hi and welcome today to my Blog.

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.

 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
  • Real Red DSP Mat – 14.1 x 9.7cm

Christmas Gleaming Tags

November is almost over and not long now to Christmas. Tomorrow I’m hoping I can get my Hubby and son to put up the Christmas Tree and decorate it. This month has been such a busy month for me with my alterations business, lots of formals and people wanting their clothes taken up before the holidays start.

Each week on Wednesdays I am trying to do a Facebook Live at 7.30pm (AU time). I would love it if you could join me as we work our way through Stampin’ Up!® Product.

This week we looked at the Stampin’ Up! Blends and made gift tags using the Christmas Gleaming stamps.I have now edited the video and it can be found on YouTube. I will also post it here for you to watch.

 

I hope you enjoy my video. All the products used are listed from the Link below and can also be purchased their as well.

Wrapped in Plaid

This months Card Class we focused on the ‘Wrapped in Plaid’ Suite from the Stampin’ Up!® Holiday Catalogue. Trying out the different products in the suite and adding a few extra for some added fun.

In this class we make three cards learning different techniques or different card folds.

Card 1

This card is a very non-traditional card using Whisper White & Granny Apple Green in colour. With a little bit of Silver Metallic Thread and Shimmery White embossing powder to give it some ‘Bling”.

Card 2

Here we CASED the card from the catalogue, showing how the catalogue is a wonderful resource for card ideas and inspiration. We did make a few little changes to our card. Instead of using the Stitched Rectangles to cut the card front as in the catalogue, we used the Subtle Embossing Folder to add texture.

Card 3

This card was CASED from Lori Pinto. I found this card on Pinterest while looking for some inspiration. It’s a very simple card to make but fun to be able to make something that is not just your side opening card.

I hope you have also found some inspiration in these cards. All three of these cards were simple to make and a lot of fun.

All the products I used in these cards will be listed below and are linked to my On-Line Store. If you have any questions please contact me and I will get back to you as soon as I can. Please leave me a comment below so I know you have visited. Have a lovely day…Keep on Stampin!

Christmas is fast approaching…have you started your shopping yet?…What about your Christmas cards?

I’m starting to get mine ready now, can’t wait to the last minute. I love giving hand made cards, it makes the gift of giving so personal even something as small as a card.

Stampin’ Up!® have some amazing Christmas stamp sets and bundles in their Holiday Catalogue this year. Sometimes its hard to choose which one you want or maybe you just want them all! One that I really wanted was ‘God’s Peace” because of the Biblical message it shares.

With this card I wanted the message from Luke 2:10-11 to be the focal point, so I kept the card design very simple.

The technique used is called Resist Embossed, its not hard to do and I think looks very effective. The Message isn’t lost or over powered by the image and the image is still there.

How do you do Resist Embossed Technique?

With all the stamping I used the Stamparatus, so I could make sure I got good clean images.

  1. Stamped the Bible Verse Luke 2:10-11 or background stamp you are using.
  2. Rub Embossing Buddy over the area where image was  to be stamped
  3. Stamp image in VersaMark, and heat emboss using  Clear Stampin’ Embossing Powder. * If you embossed the image first and then stamped the verse you would have parts of the verse missing where it goes over the embossing . As the ink resists the embossing. So by stamping the verse first and then emboss you still have the verse intact.
  4. With a sponge or dauber very lightly blend colour over the top of the embossed image blending the edges out to white. The embossed image then comes to life like magic. Use a soft cloth to rub off any excess ink stilling on the surface of the embossed area.
