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.

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.

So yesterday I got out my sponges, ink pads and stamps and set to work.

Here’s the result.

Cherry cobbler meets confetti stars

Morning everyone.

Whilst teaching class last month, I had 5 minutes to have a play myself.

So I sat and had a coffee with the ladies and began punching out some stars using the new confetti stars punch.  This is a lovely big punch and is so easy to use and line up.

Anyway I loved the effect and wanted to use it on a card.

I saved the stars I punched out.
Using the Designer Series Paper Stack I matted a layer of Old Olive and then added the confetti punched piece.

I then added a further strip of the DSP and matching ribbon, topping off with a sentiment from the White Christmas Stamp Set.
Lastly I used my two-way glue pen to stick down the stars.
Simple, but very effective.
Am off to try this in whisper white and night of navy.  What colour combinations would you like to see.
To get your hands on this gorgeous punch, head on over to my store now.
I guarantee you won’t be disappointed.

Frosted sequins …………

Morning Crunchies.
As promised today I have day 4 of the Letterpress week to show you.
Today is a very clean and simple card, but I think its really beautiful.
I have used the frame from the Letterpress set and stamped it in Night of Navy.  I have stamped the sentiment in Pool Part.  Don’t you love the contrast.
I have added frosted sequins to the frame artwork to give it some sparkle.
The Base of the card is Night of Navy, with a Pool Party matt and then the whisper white stamped layer.
Tomorrow I will be showing you the last of my five designs.
But don’t panic, theres lots more inspiration coming up.
Big hugs

Anyway today’s card is a conditioned card for my Mil’s friend Lorna.  
She lurves pink.  The pinker the better.  And my mil, loves the peacock stamp.  So I’ve combined them again.

I’ve heat embossed the peacock in white, having used my embossing buddy first.  
I also heat embossed the sentiment, before punching out.  

I finished this of with some basic jewels randomly dotted everywhere.
I hope you like this one.
I’m off having a girlie weekend with friends, and look forward to sharing another pink creation with you tomorrow.
Have a great day.
