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.

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.

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 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.

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?)

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.

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.

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.

 

Stampin Up Decoupage Bejewelled

 

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.

I then stamped the definitely dahlia stamp a second time on another piece of cardstock.  I fussy cut this one to match how it fitted onto my stamped top layer.  This was adhered with dimensional to give some depth and character to the card.

I also stamped the back and front of the envelope to give a complete matching set.  Imagine giving friends and family sets of notelets like this as presents.  This would also make a great thank you card.  Quick and easy to do.

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.
