Happy Birthday – Peony Garden

Hi and welcome today to my Blog.

Happy Birthday

‘Love it, Chop it’….#loveitchopit

What is ‘Love it, Chop it’? Instead of hoarding our beautiful Stampin’ Up! ® Designer Series Paper (DSP), Stampin’ Up! ® Demonstrator Kylie Bertucci encourages us to love our papers by cutting it into usable pieces and use it on our cards. You can make lots of card fronts by cutting your DSP into 10 x 14.4 cm pieces. Out of one sheet of DSP you will get 6 card fronts.

You are more likely to use your beautiful papers when in smaller pieces.

 Make this DSP your own by colouring it in…Colouring is also good for your well being, so relaxing.

For this card I have used my Stampin’ Blends in Mint Macaron to colour in the back ground.

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.

Products used in this card are…

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
