Sprinkles of Life Basket of Flowers

Morning Peeps,

 

Sprinkles of Life Basket of Flowers

Everyone loves to receive a basket of flowers once in a while, and card makers are no exception.  The Sprinkles of Life Basket of Flowers is a great way to show someone how much you care and bring a little sunshine into their day.

Stampin Up Sprinkles of Life

 

I used the gorgeous Cucumber Crush and Watermelon Wonder as my base colours for this card.  The clouds are stamped and then punched using the matching punch.  Don’t you just love the sunshine.  Its also a punch.

I really enjoyed making this card, so simple, so quick and just so happy.

Hi everyone.

Stampin up birds on a branch

www.crunchiecrafts.stampinup.net

 

I just love this colour combination.  Hello  Honey, Lost Lagoon and Whisper White.  All to create this cute card using our Ronald MacDonald Charity Set, Sprinkles of Life.  Super cute.

I hope this inspires you to create Stampin up birds on a branch in your own colour scheme.

Stampin Up Emboss Resist Leaves

 

 

 

Hey Peeps,

 

Stampin Up Emboss Resist Leaves

 

So todays card was inspired by my wreath from yesterday.  I loved the leaves and had a few left over, so I wanted to create a special card.  Stampin Up Emboss Resist Leaves was born.  I have used emboss resist techniques on this as well as stamped and die cut leaves.

 

Stampin Up Emboss Resist Leaves

 

My card base is Delightful Dijon, topped with Chocolate Chip and a very vanilla matt.  I stamped the Vintage Leaves onto my very vanilla in versa mark and then sprinkled with Cherry Cobbler embossing powder.  This is now retired but black would look amazing effective.  A few minutes with the heat tool and I had the most gorgeous leaves.

Out came the sponges, cajun craze, chocolate chip, and delightful dijon, and I got to inking up my very vanilla cardstock.

Once done I added the spray of diecut leaves and the cute little wooden heart embellishment.

 

 

Stampin Up Emboss Resist LeavesOf course I finished off the inside using the leaf stamps in the same colours and inking the edges.  Super Cute and super cool.  Love it.

Stampin Up Vintage Leaves Wreath

Hi Guys,

 

 

Stampin Up Vintage Leaves Wreath

When I first looked through the new annual catalogue I complete dismissed these gorgeous leaves.  It never dawned on me that I could make a beautiful Stampin Up Vintage Leaves Wreath, let alone the beautiful cards that have also been made.  All I saw was leaves not potential.

How many of you have been uninspired by what you’ve seen, or thought I can’t use that in lots of ways so I’m not going to get it.  I have come to the conclusion that these are the sets that we go back to time and time again.  I have loved using these leaves.

I have stamped them, die cut them, coloured them, heat embossed them, emboss resisted them, you name it I’ve done it to these Stampin Up Vintage Leaves.  They are a must have.

Heres my gorgeous wreath.  I have used Delightful Dijon, Cherry Cobbler, Cajun Craze and Chocolate Chip in this one.  It is absolutely gorgeous.

Stampin Up Vintage Leaves Wreath

As you can see I stamped every leaf in Early Espresso, and then cut using the matching framelits. I am so in love with my Stampin Up Vintage Leaves Wreath that I have made two.  One for local shop display and one for my home.

To finish off I used the stunning Watercolour Wings.  This fantastic triple stamping set is done in Cherry Cobbler, Cajun Craze and Delightful Dijon.  I have layered three butterflies and finished off with Pearl Basic Jewels.  Of course, when the seasons change  I can remove the leaves – I have made this possible, and then add a winter theme, spring or summer theme as need be.

I am running a couple of classes on these.  If you would like to join in please get in touch.

Stampin Up Bohemian Dsp meets Wetlands

Hello my lovelies,

Stampin Up Bohemian Dsp meets Wetlands

Some time back I showed you some lovely cards and a bag made using the bohemian dap from Stampin Up.  Stampin Up Bohemian Dsp meets Wetlands is a continuation of this.  I love the colours in it, and it works so well for a masculine card.

Here’s the envelope first.  This is for my Step-Dad, “P”, I made this using the wonderful Envelope Punch Board.  It makes making matching envelops super easy.

Stampin Up Bohemian Dsp meets Wetlands

 

I stamped the little tag with the birds from the Wetlands set as well.

Next is the card.  I used the same DSP,

matted and layered it.  I then used the co-ordinating cardstock in Blackberry Bliss and Delightful Dijon and the Square Framelits to cut the centre piece.

The very middle has been sponged with our wonderful inks and then stamped.

The inside has a repeat of the front but also has a money pocket.  This is because my Dad had Euros for his holiday spends.

Stampin Up Awesome Bokeh

Hi guys

Stampin Up Awesome Bokeh

A new technique today,  in my Stampin Up Awesome Bokeh technique class.

Do you know what Bokeh is?  Its a technical photographic term and refers to the light bubbles seen in photographs.  This is a great technique to try and its one that gets very messy.  So there were lots of inky fingers around.  My perfect kind of day.

IMG_1593.jpg

I will be doing a photographic tutorial on this in a future post so you can see how its one.  (One day I may pluck up the courage to do videos.  Would you guys like that?)

 

Stampin Up Awesome Bokeh

 

I just love the colour combinations used in these cards.  Adore how the awesomely artistic stamp set is ideal for this technique.  The ferns and dragonfly are just perfect for this kind of card.

Today is Wednesday, so the new Weekly Deals are launched today for this week.  Click this link to see what’s there and place you order through my online shop.

Stampin Up A Tissue

Hello peeps

Stampin Up A Tissue

A tissue, a tissue, we all fall down.  Memories of childhood nursery rhymes come to mind when I titled this one Stampin Up A Tissue.  But seriously today’s make is using the resist emboss technique.  Its a really cute tissue box cover to match the gift card I made yesterday.

Again I have used the lovely Tip Top Taupe from the 2015/17 In Colours and Blackberry Bliss from the 2014/16 In Colours.  These two sets of colours (10 in total) blend seamlessly together to give an amazing colour palette.

Stampin Up A Tissue

 

How gorgeous is that.  It fits over a standard size square box of tissues (available in most Supermarkets)  Again I have used the new labels thinlets dies to create my tissue hole and the surrounding trim.

I love the emboss resist technique and adore how the shading with the sponges highlights different ares of the box.  I have used blackberry bliss, tip top taupe and crumb cake to do this.  I have also stamped over the top as well.

Don’t forget to check back tomorrow for more inspiration.
