Daisy “Delight”-ful Thank You Card for WWYS #124


Hi and welcome to this week’s What Will You Stamp? Challenge. The stamp set were using this week is the delightful Daisy Delight. Who doesn’t love daisies, right? I just adore this whole suite, and as you can see I’ve used some of the beautiful Designer Series Paper in my card project this week too.


I’ve actually CASEd a card I made back in February this year using the Succulent Garden Suite; I loved it that much I decided to recreate it with Daisy Delight.


I added a gorgeous dimensional punched daisy to the inside of my card and stamped it on the envelope flap as well. Accents were added using some sequins from the Iridescent Sequin Assortment – another of my favourite products – they’re just beautiful.

Thanks for visiting my blog. If you’ve left me a comment, thank you! You’ve made my day. Be sure to hop on over to the WWYS blog to see what everyone else has made and enter your own project. You could be our next guest designer!

Hello and welcome! Today, I’m pretty excited to be blog hopping with the Crazy Crafters because we’re highlighting the new (Second Release) Sale-a-Bration products. Woot! Along with the 12 products you can already earn for FREE when you place a $90 order, starting TODAY you can choose from another three brand new ones! Here they are:




I’ve used two products today – the Make a Medallion Stamp Set and the Glimmer Paper (I used the Bermuda Bay).


I really love the Make a Medallion set. It’s pretty and delicate. Although I’ve used strong colours on my card, imagine using it with soft colours, or even neutrals. And the glimmer papers – T-O  D-I-E  F-O-R! I just can’t stop using them, really!

3×3 Thank You Cards #1

Hello and welcome. I thought I’d share some of the cute 3″ x 3″ Thank You cards that I send out to my eBay customers when they purchase from me. I usually do a batch of 10-12 at a time (half in Whisper White and half in Very Vanilla) and each batch is different. Here’s the last two batches I made:


For these I have used the cute little envelope and message dies from the Love Notes Framelits Die set, along with the splats from Gorgeous Grunge Stamp Set and the sentiment from Teeny Tiny Sentiments Stamp Set to create little messages. So cute! And you only need scraps of Designer Series Papers to make them. I used papers from the Sending Love and Playful Palette DSP Stacks, as well as Moroccan, Pop of Pink and Blooms & Bliss DSP packs. I used co-ordinating ink colours to stamp the splats and sentiment.


This batch uses the beautiful new die from the Window Box Thinlits Dies set. And I’ve just cut a bunch, backed them with various colours of cardstock and applied some Clear Wink of Stella to the central flower. Then I made some banners from black cardstock and white heat embossed the sentiment and adhered it with dimensionals.

Thanks for visiting my blog today. If you’ve left me a comment, thank you! You’ve made my day.

Bella & Friends for WWYS #98

 

Welcome to our WWYS Challenge for this week! Bella and Friends is such a cutesy set and just begs to be watercoloured. I had yet to try out my brand new watercolour pencils from the Occasions Catalogue (if you haven’t got your copy yet, click on the big orange button below this post and I’ll get it straight out to you). Back to the watercolour pencils – I used an aqua painter on the little dog image using watercolour paper. You can also use a blender pen if you’re using normal cardstock or DSP. I was AMAZED with the result; the colours blended so easily.

 

 

I backed the image with a piece of Sweet Sugarplum stamped with the dotty image from Playful Backgrounds and paired it with the dotty paper from the Playful Pallette DSP Stack. The sentiment was die-cut using one of the dies from the Project Life Cards & Labels Framelits. The ribbon is new from the Occasions Catalogue’s Succulent Garden Ribbon Combo Pack. It’s gorgeous and soft.

 

Here’s a close-up of the watercoloured image.

Paisleys & Posies Gift Set for WWYS #90

Hello and welcome to this week’s WWYS Challenge using the Paisleys & Posies Stamp Set. I fell in love with this set the moment I clapped eyes on it. The designs are gorgeous and the colour possibilities are endless. Here’s the stamp set pic:


90-paisleys-posies

 

I knew I wanted to use black and copper for this project as I think they are a real WOW together, and I also decided to make a matching gift box, not for any other reason than I wanted to make THAT gorgeous flower from the matching Paisleys Framelits Dies! It would have been too much on the card but I think you’ll agree it’s stunning on the gift box.


paisleys-posies-1

 

TIP: Matching pieces don’t always have to be exactly the same. Here, I’ve reversed the colours on the box but it still matches the card perfectly.

And here’s a close-up of that flower! How gorgeous is it?!

Peachy Thank You Card for GDP058

It seems like ages since I’ve joined the Global Design Project Challenge and I really like the sketch for this week.

gdp058

My card for the challenge highlights the gorgeous Fruit Stand Designer Series Paper. Don’t forget you can get it free this month with the Buy 3 Get 1 Free DSP offer.

peachy-thank-you-card-1

I’ve used the co-ordinating Fresh Fruit Stamp Set for the sentiment and the outline around the peach. The peach was simply fussy cut from the DSP. So easy!

TIP: If your DSP has horizontal or vertical lines and you want diagonal ones – no problem. Just cut the paper on the diagonal as I’ve done here. 

The scalloped detail on the focal piece was achieved using the top of the Best Badge punch.

peachy-thank-you-card-2

I’ve finished the inside off simply with a 1cm strip of the striped DSP.

Foxy Friends for WWYS #75

Hello and welcome to another WWYS Challenge.  This week we’ve been given the challenge to use the Foxy Friends Stamp Set. Challenge?  Heck no!  This set is fun and adorable – and versatile too.  You get 29 – yes, 29 images in the set, so there’s lots of room for creating different animals and scenes.  It could be used for just about any occasion, and it comes with a punch.  I bought the bundle and saved 10%.  To see what the rest of the Design Team came up with for this challenge, head on over to the What Will You Stamp Blog.  If you have this set we’d love it if you could join us.  You’d be inspiring us and other crafters all over the world!  And you might just be a winner! How awesome is that?

#75 Foxy Friends

Here’s my card.  I made this one for a customer and she has received it now, so no spoiler!

Foxy Friends-1

I’ve used the same colours as the co-ordinating DSP Stack – Basic Black, Calypso Coral, Pool Party,
Smoky Slate and Whisper White.  A little dash of Cucumber Crush for the leaves makes this little scene pop.  The gorgeous sentiment comes from the Flourishing Phrases stamp set.

If you like this colour combination, please feel free to save and share it.  You can find more inspiration on my Pinterest Colour Inspiration Board.

Casing France Martin – Tri-Fold Shutter Card

CCBH w France Martin

I’m very excited to be taking part in the June Crazy Crafters Blog Hop with special guest stamper France (“Frenchie”) Martin.  Frenchie is a prolific blogger with a big following and a big personality.  We are very grateful and excited that Frenchie has joined us in this hop.  We are all casing a past project from Frenchie’s blog and here’s the card I decided to case from 8 April 2016:

And here’s my card:


Tri-Fold Shutter Card-1

I adore the Detailed Floral Framelits and the Floral Boutique DSP.  Navy and white give a clean, crisp look that I love.


Tri-Fold Shutter Card-2

I loved the fun open and close of the shutter card and have never made one before so I gave it a go!  I’m pretty happy with the result.


Tri-Fold Shutter Card-3

I made one modification – I replaced the belly band with a magnetic closure.  And here’s a close-up of the card fully open:

Enjoy the Little Things Thank You Card

Today’s post is a lot longer than usual, but I didn’t want you to miss out on anything that’s going on, and there’s a LOT going on at this time of the year with Stampin’ Up!  Many products will be retiring to make way for the exciting new products that will fill the new Annual Catalogue.  If you currently don’t have a demonstrator, and you’d like me to send you a brand new catalogue for FREE, let me know so I can organise that for you.  Click on Catalogues > Request a Catalogue in the menu bar at the top of this page.  They’ll be going out in the mail on May 11.

Well, it’s Friday!  And that means it’s time for another Crazy Crafters’ Team Project Highlight, hosted by our fabulous upline, Kylie Bertucci.  Thanks Kylie!  Be sure to check out all the fantastic projects this week by clicking on the banner above – and don’t forget to vote for your top 3 picks by clicking on the heart in the top right-hand corner of the image.  So, here we go!

This card was so much fun to create.  While the design is nothing extraordinary or difficult, I’ve just used images and shapes in a different way, giving it a fun perspective.  The square image from the Enjoy the Little Things stamp set is echoed in the sentiment layer.  I’ve just turned it to create a diamond shape.  And I think this card would be a good unisex thank you card to have on hand, as it’s suitable to give to a girl or a fella.


Enjoy_the_Little_Things_Thank_You_Card-1

The colour combination is vibrant and cheerful too.  Tangelo Twist has to be my favourite amongst the In Colours – I just adore it!  And I paired it with the (“masculine”?) Night of Navy.  After I’d decided on these two colours, it struck me how nautical they look too (must have been subliminal thinking!).  If you like these colours together, feel free to save the colour inspiration image below.


Post 26 Mar 16

The background consists of an emboss resist image, a little watercolouring and splattering and drips – well, you get the idea.  You could do anything you want here really, a lovely soft wash or, like I’ve used, a bit of everything for a grungier (that’s a word BTW) look!  I think though, the stronger colours really make the crisp whiteness of the image pop.


Enjoy_the_Little_Things_Thank_You_Card-2

And how about that gorgeous sentiment?!  I think this is one of my all time faves.  The beautiful script font pairs extremely well with the tall blocked font of the “you”.  It’s from the Happy Happenings stamp set.  It looks regal popped up on layers of Tangelo Twist and Night of Navy.

Finally, I’ve used Burlap Trim to blend the layers and provide texture and interest (I’m sure there’s a nautical link there somewhere!).  But rather than just wrap it around I’ve pulled some threads to give it a lattice appearance.  I love it when you can use one item in many ways, and I think this makes it the most versatile of all the current Stampin’ Up! range of ribbons and trims.

Here’s the encyclopaedic version for those of you who like to keep all your information in one place!


Enjoy_the_Little_Things_Thank_You_Card-3

If you like this card and want to recreate it, get in quick because the Enjoy the Little Things stamp set, Tangelo Twist cardstock and ink, burlap ribbon and Squares Collection Framelits are all on the Retiring Products list!
