Life is better with a Friend like you.

Good Morning and welcome……..

The card I have on my blog today I made as part of the ‘Aussies Who Love Stampin’ Up!’ ® In-Colour Challenge #AWLSU060

Life is better with a Friend like you.

In this challenge we could work with one colour or more. I decided to go with the …MORE. The colours I have used are Magenta Madness, Just Jade and Bumble Bee from the 2020-22 In-Colour Designer Series Paper.

This is a simple card using circles cut with the Layering Circles dies…sitting on Whisper White cardstock with the 3 In-Colours also stamped using a splatter stamp found in the Beauty Abounds stamps. The sentiment white embossed on Basic Black cardstock is from the Peaceful moments stamp set.Then finished with 3 enamel dots from the 2020-22 In-Colour Enamel Dots.

Prized Garden

My cards today uses the Stampin’ Up! ® Prized Garden Suite Collection, the ‘WOW’ of this card is the amazing 3D blossom.

I have added an extra layer in my Peony by adding a layer of vellum to each petal. Each layer was sponged lightly with Blushing Bride Stampin’ Pad and shaped with a bone folder. Each petal has that extra shimmer with a touch of Wink of Stella. The ribbon loops were made by cutting 10cm of ribbon, folding them in half and joining with a Mini Glue Dot.

To assemble the Peony

  • Cut all 5 layers of the Peony – I have numbered each one 1through to 4, not including the stamen.
  • Starting with the smallest petal, slip petal 1 into the slit of petal 2 – lining up the bottom edges. Add a small amount of glue at the base of each petal.
  • Slip petals 1&2 into petal 3 – lining up the bottom edges.
  • Slip petal 1, 2 & 3 into 4
  • Once the flower has been assembled slip the stamen into place in the 1st petal.

Hello – Forever Greenery

Good Morning,

so glad you could stop by and have a look at my card today…

Hello -Forever Greenery

A few days ago I shared with you a card I made, made in the same way as this one except it was a landscape card. This time I have turned it around and made as a portrait card. I have still used all the products from the Forever Greenery Suite but for the first time I have used one of the embossing folders – Greenery Embossing Folders. They come in a pack of 2 different folders. Both a perfect size for the Mini Stampin’ Cut Embossing Machine, which will be released later in the year.

A Sweet Friendship – Forever Greenery Suite

Hi and welcome today to my Blog.

 

A Sweet Friendship

I love this card, it is so simple, sweet and clean.

There is something about a white card and with that strip of green leaves on the white background makes it refreshing.

This is a simple card to make and with just a sentiment to stamp. The only colour comes from a strip of Designer Series Paper which is 3.5cm wide, a great way to use up any left overs.

A Gold Hoop Embellishment layered with a Vellum leaf cut using the Forever Flourishing Dies and a Gold leaf from the Forever Gold Laser -cut Specialty Paper.

The whisper White mat has been embossed using the Sutbles 3D Embossing Folder.

The sentiment comes from the Butterfly Wishes Cling Stamps, a sentiment for any occasion.

You will find a Tutorial on my Tutorial Page for this card

Sunflower Shaker Card

Beautiful bright Sunflowers…I don’t know what it is about Sunflowers but they always seem to bring joy to peoples faces.

Helen Keller said….

My card to day uses the Sunflowers from the Jar of Flowers Bundle. The flowers were stamped in Memento Ink and coloured using Blends. .The stems of the flowers were stamped in Memento Ink and were also stamped off just to mute the colour so the looked like they were in water. The Mason jar was stamped in Pool Party Ink and then using the reverse side (because they are a reversible stamp) I also used Pool Party Ink but stamped off to give a lighter shade

In the Mason Jar Dome I added some of the Flower for Every Season Gems.

Sending Healing Hugs – Forever Greenery

My love affair with the Forever Greenery Suite continues…

The Scrappy Strip Technique is a great way to great fantastic backgrounds with lots of interest. Here I have created a back ground using this technique with the Forever Greenery Designer Series Paper.

I kept the strips narrow, approx 12mm, that way I could use nearly all the designs. The strips were adhered to Whisper White Cardstock and also matted onto Whisper White Cardstock.

By placing a layer of vellum on top of the Scrappy Strips it softened the intensity of the colour and allowed the bouquet of fern leaves to stand out. Using the Forever Flourishing Dies leaves were cut from Just Jade, Pretty Peacock and vellum cardstock, also included gold leaves from the Forever Gold Laser-cut Specialty Paper

To a friend that makes me smile – Flowers for all Seasons

I love it when a card design comes together so well and this card was one of them. This card is a simple Z-Fold card and the ‘Flowers for Every Season’ Designer Series Paper (DSP) made it very quick to put together.  Along with the floral I also used one of the Just Jade designs from the 2020-22 In-Colour DSP.

The words on this DSP are the words of Stampin’ Up! ® Statement of the Heart, in English and other languages.

The sentiment and flowers inside the card were stamped in Memento Black and left un-coloured, with just a hint of colour down the edge of the Just Jade DSP. The sentiment was cut our using a circle and scalloped circle from the Layered Circle Dies.

To make the sentiment ‘Pop’ I added a piece of the new In-Colour 1/4 ” Ribbon in Bumble Bee.

You can find a tutorial for this card on my Tutorial Page in the bar above.

Still in My Heart

Hi and welcome today to my Blog.

At the moment I’m sitting in my workroom, heater is on and it’s lovely and warm. My computer tells me it’s about 10 degrees but I’m sure the real feel is colder than that. Wondering if this winter will bring snow….LOL I hope for snow every winter, it’s been a few years since we had some…fingers crossed.

Still in My Heart

Today’s card is a simple card to make…Stampin’ Up!® have done most of the work for us.

Here I have used the stunning and elegant Forever Gold Die-cut Specialty Designer Series Paper. I have used one of the panels on my card front and anything else you put with it needs only to be simple.

This card is made up of layers. Framing the gold panels is a double mat and the mats are only millimeters different in size. The mats have been lifted of the card base with dimensionals and the sentiment lifted again. 

The sentiment and the punch used on the banner comes from the Lovely You Bundle. I love the mix of the 2 font styles…What do you think?

You must have a look at the Lovely Ladels Pick A Punch…It’s 6 punches all rolled into one….There are 2 different styles and each style cuts 3 different sizes…each size being a little different as the tag gets wider.

You can use the just one single or layer them on top of one another…you can make your label as long or as short as you want.

Until the end of June you could sign up with Stampin’ Up! ® and chose the Lovely You Bundle as your Free Bundle.

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…..
