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.

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 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 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.

Don’t forget you can get everything you need to make this cute card over in my online Stampin up shop.  Simply click my Shop with me Link in the sidebar.

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.

Blue Shoes with Stampin UP Guy Greetings

Hey guys,

STAMPING UP GUY GREETINGS BLUE SHOES

So are you loving the other cards in this series of cards.  I have been having great fun using the Guy Greetings stamp set from Stampin Up.  Today’s card is Blue Shoes and has been made using the Stampin Up Guy Greetings stamp set.

I have changed the colours again and this time have used pool party.  I used the gorgeous large dots embossing folder to create the background.  Isn’t this just too cute.
blue shoes with Stampin Up Guy Greetings

The base of my card is very vanilla and I have stamped the shoes directly onto the inside of the card.  The front was matted and layered.  The shoes were stamped in a line using my Stampa -ma – jig.  This is a great tool for being able to line up stamped images and get them exactly where I need them to be.

I also used it put the sentiment onto the top of the shoes.

The little banner sentiment was stamped and then I used the snips to cut the banner ends into it.  The edges of the matting and layering have been distressed with the same colour ink to give definition to the card.

This would make a great birthday card for the fashionista male in your household.

Righty Tighty – Guy Greetings from Stampin Up

Hello lovelies.

Righty Tighty GUY GREETINGS from Stampin Up – Day 3,

The gorgeous Guy Greetings from Stampin Up has really been a boost to my stamp sets.  I adore all the images and the great male sentiments.  This set has really inspired me to get creative and I hope that you guys are finding my creations inspiring.

As a teenager when I was learning to drive my Dad showed me how to change the wheel on my car.  I remember him telling an easy way to undo the nuts, “Rightly Tighty, Lefty Loosy!!”  It stuck with me for years and works for DIY as well as car maintenance.

Today’s card is the card I created for my Dad because this saying was so apt.

Guy Greetings from Stampin Up - Rightly Tighty  by Crunchie Crafts

 

Using the gorgeous Typeset DSP – (Designer Series Paper) I created a gorgeous front to my card.  I sponged the edges of my DSP to a very vintage look to my card.  I loved the polaroid frame that I created for my card on Day 1, so I decided to use it again today.  First I stamped the main image and then on a second piece of cardstock I cut out the middle of the cardstock using the Square Framelits.   I raised the polaroid frame using frailest.  The sentiment was stamped onto a rectangle of cardstock, and then distressed before creating the banner end with my 1″ square punch.  I pleated some chevron ribbon down the front of the card and attached my banner on top of it.

Lastly I made a matching envelope from the same DSP stack.

All the products used in creating this gorgeous card and envelope can be found on my online shop by clicking the link in the sidebar.

Morning lovelies.

How are you all today.    I am loving the new annual catalogue and there are so many great ideas that it is an ideal way to creative.  One of my favourite stamps has been carried forward and has been featured on page 107.  So I decided to get creative.

Casing the Catalogue in the New In-Colours.

I recreated this card using Tip Top Taupe as my base and then the other new colours, Watermelon Wonder, Cucumber Crush, Delightful Dijon and Mint Macaron.

Here’s my take on the card.  I hope you like it.image

 

 

 

 

and whilst I was about it I decided that the inside of  my first card was so beautiful I would recreate it as a front………. so here’s card number 2.
