Stampin Up Awesome Gift

Hi lovelies

Stampin Up Awesome Gift

My class in July was using the Awesomely Artistic Stamp Set.  I love this very versatile stamp set.  My Stampin Up Awesome Gift Card is part of the class.  (All classes are available by post)

In this months class we did resist embossing as one of the techniques.  Every month I make sure we do something different ….. sometimes we revisit techniques we used a long time ago, sometimes new ones and sometimes the class decide what they want to do the next month.  We’ve got shaker cards, accordian cards, resist embossing on vellum and watercoloring coming up in the next few months among other things.  Its going to be an exciting few classes.

Stampin Up Awesome Gift

How cute is this.  It measures approximately 2 1/2″ square.  I’ve used the new labels thinlet dies to create the matts.  The base is tip top taupe, and has been stamped with blackberry bliss.  I have heat embossed with clear embossing powder and then stamped and inked over the top.

The lovely dragonfly is from the Awesomely Artistic set and has been stamped in blackberry bliss and then fussy cut, before being added to the gift card with a glue dot.

Hope to see you again tomorrow for more using this lovely set.

Stampin Up Decoupage Bejewelled

Hi everyone.

Stampin Up Decoupage Bejewelled

Todays post is the last in the Dahlia Stamp set series.  The Stampin Up Decoupage Bejewelled card is a gorgeous card.  I really enjoyed making this one and fussy cutting the layers, to create something a little different.

dd & ttt decoupage dahlia aug 2015

As you can see I first stamped the background with Tip Top Taupe.  My layers are Very Vanilla, Delightful Dijon, and then Very Vanilla.  The Tip Top Taupe gives a great contast to the Delightful Dijon and just highlights the Stampin Up Decoupage Bejewelled Dahia.  I stamped this twice onto very vanilla, before fussy cutting both and then adding random Rhinestones all over the centre.

I stamped and punched out a sentiment using the washi tape punch using very vanilla and then punched a second washi tape in delightful dijon.  This was cut in half and layered behind the first one to give depth and add interest.  This was adhered to the centre of the inside of the card.

I hope you liked today’s post.

Don’t forget to check the clearance rack, there has been some wonderful new items added.  Also the weekly deals are pretty amazing at the moment.

Check back tomorrow for the start of my 5 days of Awesomely Artistic.

Stampin Up Fussy Cut Definitely Dahlia

Hey everyone

Stampin Up Fussy Cut Definitely Dahlia

Definitely Dahlia is fast becoming one of my favourite background stamps.  But it really doesn’t have to remain in the background.  Stampin Up fussy Cut Definitely Dahlia shows how versatile this background stamp is and how much it cry out to be the show stopper on any card.

How to create Stampin Up Fussy Cut Definitely Dahlia

I started off with very vanilla cardstock.  I love the subtle colour of this cardstock. Its not a harsh cream colour, but a beautiful summery colour which sets everyone one of the 48 Stampin Up Ink colours off perfectly.  It really is one of my favourite go-to card base colours.

Stampin Up Fussy Cut Definitely Dahlia

I stamped two definitely dahlias in Cucumber Crush, but they were stamped off the cardstock to only give 3/4 of the image on each edge of the card.

I then fussy cut around these, but left a 1″ gap in the middle to join the two together.

Lastly I then stamped in Watermelon Wonder on another Very vanilla piece and completely fussy cut this piece.  I then added this to the front of the card using the dimensionals to give depth to the card.

I love the way the colours complement each other and how the shape of the card is so unique.

To create this subtle inked image I have used the Stampin Write Markers to colour straight onto the red rubber stamp.  Starting with tip top taupe on the edges I then added the Watermelon Wonder in varying degrees before  finally using delightful dijon in the middle.

The sentiment was stamped directly using the ink pad Watermelon Wonder and stamped over the top of the subtle image.

STAMPIN UP DOUBLE BUTTERFLIES

Have you been enjoying the butterfly basics cards I have shown this week. Todays card, Stampin Up Double Butterflies is something a little bit different.  Its an A5 card, and I have used Island Indigo, Melon Mambo, and So Saffron.  I cut two butterflies using the butterfly thinnest dies and then stamped the front piece of the card.  I left the butterflies plain, but then covered them with with dazzling diamonds to give them sparkle.stampin up double butterflies

My cardbase is made from the lovely watermelon wonder cardstock.  I have then added Daffodil Delight embossed card.  Can you see that super cute embossing.  Yep it’s butterflies.  How cute it that.  Its one of the new ones from the new 2015/16 annual catalogue.

I punched out a watermelon wonder elegant butterfly and a cucumber crush one. Then split the cucumber crush one in half and layered it behind the watermelon one to create the layered look.  I took the petit petals punch and punched out 3 watermelon wonder flowers and then the new Tree Builder Punch and punched out 3 tiny daffodil delight flowers.

I have stamped the cowslip from the butterfly basics stamp set  twice and then coloured them.  Each was fussy cut and then layered onto the card front.  I stamped the lovely sentiment using the stamp set I think you’re lovely stamp set.

Stampin Up Butterfly Basics Back to Black

Hi guys

Stampin Up Butterfly Basics Back to Black

 

Hello lovelies.

We gone a little bit retro and vintage today with my Stampin Up Butterfly Basics Back to Black card.

Stampin Up Butterfly Basics Back to Black

 

Taking very vanilla cardstock I have created my card base, gently sponged the edges with crumb cake and have then added some similarly distressed Typeset DSP.

I have added a black matt layer and then stamped onto a piece of very vanilla cardstock using Tip Top Taupe, Crumb Cake and Basic Black using lots of the stamps from Stampin Up Butterfly Basics stamp set.   I have triple stamped the fern to give lighter shades of black and depth to the card.

Lastly I cut three small typeset DSP butterflies using the small butterfly frame lit, I have then cut a medium butterfly using the framelits in basic black.  These have been layered and shaped to give the effect of floating wings and finished with some basic jewels.

I have then attached this to the front of the card using glue dots.  Perfect.

My Stampin Class ladies voted this their favourite card in the card class and have all since cased it.  Its so simple to create yet so effective to look at.

Stampin Up Butterfly Basics Oval Frames

Hey Hey Everyone.

STAMPIN UP BUTTERFLY BASICS OVAL FRAMES

Stampin Up Butterfly Basics Oval Frames is day day 3 of my Stampin Up Butterfly Basics series.   Today I have combined it with Oval Frames and the new Brick wall embossing folder, and the itty bitty butterfly punch.

 

Stampin Up Butterfly Basics Oval Frames

 

The base of my card is the lovely Old Olive.  One of my go to colours.  It goes with so many of our colours and always looks good.  To create my wall I have used Daffodil Delight and the new Brick Wall embossing folder.  I just love this folder, it gives such a great background and I have lots of ideas that I want to try with it.

I used two of my oval framelits to create the old olive frame.  I then stamped the gorgeous “cowslip” from the Butterfly Basics stamp set and used my Stamp ‘n’ Write markets and my blender pens to colour this image.

I then stamped the sentiment and the itty bitty butterflies (Again from the Butterfly basics Stamp Set) I punched these out and then punched out the sentiments using my  oval punches.

All the bits were layered and stuck using tombow and dimensionals.  I love how clean and fresh the colours are together.  What a lovely bright vibrant card to have on your mantle shelf.
