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.

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.

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.

Stampin Up Double Butterflies

Hello peeps

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

I also created stained glass panels to fit behind each butterfly.  The itty bitty butterflies were punched out and made 3d as well.  Its such a pretty card and I know thats it on its way to a customer in Australia as i speak.

Don’t forget to look at this weeks weekly deals, there are some amazing offers.

Guy Greetings from Stampin Up – day 1

Hi everyone,

GUY GREETINGS from Stampin Up created by Crunchie Crafts – Day 1

Apologies for the absence, but family life has not been easy and I needed some time out.  But i’m back with lots of lovely projects to show you and hopefully inspire you with.  Today I am showing you the first of 5 projects that I used the Guy Greetings stamp set from Stampin Up for.    I made these for fathers day, but you can change the greeting for birthday, or for any special occasion for that wonderful man in your life.

 

Guy Greetings from Stampin Up created by Crunchie Crafts Lisa Cornwall, Independent Stampin Up Demonstrator

To make this I used the lovely new thick Whisper White Cardstock for my card base, cut to 11 3/4″ x 5 3/4″.  Folded in half to create a 5 3/4″ square card.  Then I added some Typeset DSP, which had been ink distressed.

This DSP (Designer Series Paper) is really lovely to use and is slightly lighter in weight than our other DSP, but the designs are really beautiful and very versatile.

I stamped onto whisper white and cut the gorgeous frame using a rectangle of DSP and our square framelits.  Its easy to create this lovely polaroid photo effect in this way.  To create the banner I cut a 1″ strip of cardstock, stamped my sentiment and then using Snips cut the banner end.  I stuck this onto my card using dimensionals.  Everything has been distressed with crumb cake ink, before I added some burlap ribbon and some chevron ribbon, and finally stuck my polaroid style stamped topper.

Check back again to see the next of my 5 projects using this stamp set.
