    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.

    Have you started thinking about them yet?

    Merry and Bright

    My card today uses the Joyful Holly Stamp 153440 set from Stampin’ Up! ® 2020 August – January Mini Catalogue.

We are a group of Stampin’ Up!® Demonstrators from around the world taking part in a training program helping us to build a successful Stampin’ Up!® Business and reach some of our goals. Thank you, we really appreciate your support.

    Flowers for Every Season

    My card today is very simple and is all about texture and as they would say in ‘Sesame Street’ …

    “It’s brought to by the letter B – Bumble Bee”.

    If you asked me what my favorite colour is I would tell you BLUE, I still love blue but I’m really liking Bumble Bee at the moment. This card just uses the Whisper White and Bumble Bee looks so clean and fresh.

    I have a tendency to work within a suite only adding a few small extras that you wouldn’t notice that belong to another collection. With this card I have pulled elements from different collections and put them together and I love it!

    Give it a try, it’s fun once you get your head around it…Group products together from different suites and see what you come up with. I’d love to see what you make.

    This is a simple card to CASE and I will list all the products I used below and they will be linked back to my On-Line Store.

    Peony Gardens and Blends

    Welcome to another Blog post on this chilly but beautiful Saturday Morning.

    Peony Gardens and Blends

    Approximately two weeks ago I showed you a card using the Peony Garden Designer Series Paper where I just coloured the back ground of the paper. I was enjoying the relaxation of just colouring in that I did another, this time adding more colours. It has sat on my desk for a few days and last night I finally made it into a card.

    The Blends are wonderful for colouring in as they don’t leave that line on your work that markers can leave.

    The colours I have used are…

    The Measurements I used are…

    • Card Base, Basic Black – 10.5 x 29.8cm, scored 14.9cm
    • Mat, DSP – 14.47 x 10cm
    • Mat, Basic Black – 8 x 12.4cm
    • Card Front, DSP – 10 x 15cm and trimmed down to 7.7 x 12.1cm

    Inside the card I added a sheet of Whisper White Cardstock 10 x 14.4cm, and added a strip of DSP that I had trimmed off.

    Here’s a Tip….

    They are sometimes a little forgotten but use the Black Combo pack of Dimensionals. I used the mini ones under my sentiment and the larger ones under the Basic Back Mat. Great to have when using darker colours in your cardstock. Always worth while having a pack handy.
