Sealed With Love for WWYS #101


Hello and welcome to this week’s WWYS Challenge. This week’s stamp set is Sealed With Love, a great one for Valentine’s cards, but it can just as easily be used for cards like the one I’ve made to send to family and friends to let them know you love them.

 


On a Shimmery White card base I’ve added another panel (also Shimmery White) onto which I clear embossed the sentiment and then ink blended Real Red, Melon Mambo and Watermelon Wonder. I then die cut the panel using the hearts border die from the Love Notes Framelits Dies. I die cut the border again from a piece with tiny strings of hearts from the Sending Love Designer Series Paper Stack so that it fitted perfectly under the main panel. I adhered the two pieces to another piece of Whisper White cardstock and adhered the whole panel to the card base with Foam Adhesive Strips.

Tip: When adding composite pieces to a panel it is better to make it a little larger than the card base and then cut it down to the desired size. This allows you leeway with regard to the border around the panel and the relative size of each element (in this case the depth of the DSP piece. It also allows you to trim away the edges of an ink blended piece which are usually much darker than the rest of the piece that can make the finished card look “untidy”.

I decided it needed something more, so I flicked some water off an acrylic block with a paintbrush until I was happy with the look, dabbing the excess water off with a paper towel.

The finishing touches were Wink of Stella added to the die cut hearts and a few silver metallic hearts.

I also added a strip of the Designer Series Paper to the inside of the card.

WWYS Hits 100 – Hooray!


Hello! Welcome to this week’s WWYS Challenge. This is a milestone week as What Will You Stamp? has reached 100 Challenges! Wahoo!! This week we’re using Number of Years Stamp Set. I made a special 6″ x 6″ congratulations card for today using the floral spray from this set. I also used a few other stamp sets to complete the project.


This card was inspired by Jennifer Maguire; she made some similar cards using a bunch of smaller images to make a background pattern of sorts but she coloured hers. I decided to go with full on gold! The Hooray sentiment comes from the Confetti Celebration Stamp Set, and I’ve also used some of the little floral and leaf images from the Love & Affection Stamp Set. After heat embossing the sentiment in the centre, I arranged the small images in the MISTI and stamped in Versamark then heat embossed. Turning the card a quarter turn each time I repeated this 3 times. The MISTI is a great tool for this kind of technique, and I don’t think I would have attempted this card without it.


For the inside of the card I used this GORGEOUS sentiment from the new Birthday Blast Stamp Set from the 2017 Occasions Catalogue. I just adore this font and I think it looks fabulous in gold! I layered Whisper White on Gold Foil. I also added some matching washi tape  from the Pop of Pink pack to the bottom of the panel for that extra somethin’ somethin’.

Tip:  When layering, especially with more expensive specialty cardstocks like foil sheets, cut the panel to size and then cut all the way around about 1 cm in from the edges, so you’re left with a frame. This saves wasting your cardstock.


To finish off this project, I made an envelope and embellished with more of that washi tape on the flap.

Stitched Shapes Framelits Card

Hello and welcome to my blog and today’s project. The Crazy Crafters are excited to be hopping with Val Moody today.  Val is a Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator from the UK, and I am a HUGE fan of her work. She is in the Top 100 demos globally – so well deserved! You can check out Val’s blog by clicking on her picture.

 

 

We are each CASEing (Copying and Selectively Editing) one of Val’s designs today. I chose to CASE the card below. I love the clean, crisp look of this card and the pop of contrasting colour.


I chose to change it up and use squares instead of circles, and Pool Party instead of Real Red.


The sentiment is from the Lovely Stitching Stamp Set, the little leaves from the Swirly Scribbles Thinlits Dies, and those gorgeous little flowers are part of the brand new Sending Love Suite. Adorable, aren’t they? They come in natural, and I’ve coloured them to match my card. I also stamped the flower image from the Lovely Stitching set in Versamark behind the sentiment.


 

To continue along the hop, select the person next on the list after me, Gail Davidson, to see all the gorgeous creations from Val and the rest of the Crazy Crafters.

Crazy Patchwork Card

Hello and welcome to my blog and today’s project. Have you ever had crafting ideas percolating around in your head for ages, and then one day the planets align – the perfect opportunity to use that idea presents itself and you instantly know that that idea is exactly what you had envisioned for your current project? It happens to me a lot! And today’s project springs from an idea I had when I first played with the lace image from the Grateful Bunch Stamp Set. That was way back in February last year when I made this embellished notebook! The idea was to make a card that looked exactly like a paper version of a popular quilting technique called “crazy patchwork”. In crazy patchwork, literally anything goes and it’s usually a mix of patterns, stitches, appliquéd flowers, beads, buttons – anything! Here’s an example:

So … a friend recently asked me to make a card for a work colleague who was leaving. I like to personalise cards to the recipient, so I asked my friend what this lady was like. She said “Well, she’s Scottish … oh, and she’s into quilting.” As soon as the words left her mouth, the idea that had been in the back of my mind for all those months literally hit me like a bolt of lightning. I couldn’t believe my luck and I was so excited. To be honest, this card was a real labour of love; it took me hours to create but I just adore it! And it was so satisfying to get that design out of my head and into my hands. 🙂

Well, after that exhaustive introduction, here’s my card:


Although the Warmth and Cheer paper I used is now retired it was perfect for a Scottish lady! And besides all the heat embossing, the paper piecing was what took the longest. Accuracy is key here! I started in one corner and worked across, adding pieces to a backing piece of photocopy paper until I was happy with the look. I then trimmed it down to suit my 6″ x 6″ card size. I used images from the Lovely Stitching Stamp Set and the Sale-a-Bration stamp set Delicate Details, which you can earn for free with a $90 purchase. Here’s a close-up of the embossing detail:


For the sentiment I used a circle cut with the Stitched Shapes Framelits Dies. The “Best Wishes” comes from the Blooms & Wishes Stamp Set, and the “from all of us” comes from the Crazy About You Stamp Set.


Finally, I added the “You’ll be missed” sentiment on an extra piece of photocopy paper which acted as additional “pages” since there would be many people writing in the card. This sentiment is from the Wild About Flowers Stamp Set.


I also added some tartan paper to the envelope flap to finish off the project (see main image). Although this card took a relatively long time to make, I was so happy with the finished result. What do you think? Was it worth it?

Update 17 Feb 2017: I have added this card to this week’s Crazy Crafters Highlights. If you’d like to vote for my card, voting begins at 6:00pm AEST (7:00pm Daylight Saving Time).

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

Congratulations Card for a Special Reason!

posted in: Cards, Congratulations | 0

Hello! Today I’m sharing a congratulations card I made for a new team member using a couple of new stamp sets from the Occasions Catalogue – the Special Reason Stamp Set, along with the floral images from the Hostess set Thankful Life which I heat embossed and then sponged over with Daffodil Delight ink.

 


The Special Reason Stamp Set has coordinating framelits dies; these can be purchased as a bundle at a 10% saving.

 


 


The technique is triple time stamping which is not as hard as it looks!

I just adore these colours together: Peekaboo Peach and Flirty Flamingo for the flowers, and Wild Wasabi and Pear Pizzazz for the leaves.

Tip: Use sponge daubers to add shading to stamped images. Ink up with the lightest colour then daub on the darker colour to add depth.

The gorgeous petite font used in this stamp set is very versatile too; you can use the sentiments inside the card as well as on the card front.

I decided on a base of Sahara Sand to let the colours of the images shine.  What do you think?

Sunshine Sayings for WWYS #99


 

Hello and welcome to our WWYS Challenge for this week! I have to confess I haven’t used the Sunshine Sayings set as much as a should have, but I had so much fun making this card, I think I’ll be using it more in future!  I wanted to keep it simple – well as simple as it can be for me! – and I had the design kinda mapped out in my head. But I have a confession to make – I actually meant to make a portrait card not a landscape version as you see here. Any guesses as to what happened? Well, after die cutting the flower I happened to flip my card over and I had already stamped my signature stamp on the back in, you guessed it, landscape! It was one of those self-deprecating moments – not pretty! But that’s the thing with cardmaking – it doesn’t matter; you can always make it work! I love that!!! So I just stamped and adhered my sentiment sideways too! 🙂

 


 

I did a bit of shading behind the flower and applied some Wink of Stella and it looks gorgeous in real life.

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.

Thoughtful Banners for WWYS #97

 

Hello and welcome! I hope you all had a very merry Christmas and a happy New Year.  Our very first What Will You Stamp? Challenge for 2017 is to create using the Thoughtful Banners Stamp Set. This set coordinates with the Duet Banner Punch and is very useful for putting together your own message as there are LOTS of words and phrases. The stamp set and punch are available to purchase as a bundle.

 

Item # 142330 – Thoughtful Banners Photopolymer Bundle

 

I decided to do a sentiment background and chose Mint Macaron and Smoky Slate as my colours.

 

 

I had a strip with the negative from a project I had made using the Flourish Thinlits so I knew I wanted to incorporate that piece into my design. I also wanted to try out the new Lift Me Up bundle. So I decided on a graduation card for this project.

 

 

I stamped rows of the sentiment in Smoky Slate and one in Mint Macaron as a highlight. I then simply adhered the balloons, the banner and scattered some metallic stars.

 

Tip: You can often save and use the negative pieces from diecuts to use on another project, saving cardstock and giving you extra elements for another card.

Flurry of Wishes Card for WWYS #95

 

 

Hello! and welcome to this week’s What Will You Stamp? Challenge. This week we’re designing with the Flurry of Wishes Stamp Set. You can purchase the stamp set and coordinating Snow Flurry Punch and Flower Medallion Punch.

 

Item # 139680: Snow Flurry Punch and Item # 137417 Flower Medallion Punch

 

It’s hard to see in the picture, but I started by adding some glitter snowflakes using Heat and Stick powder and Dazzling Diamonds glitter. Some more snowflakes were clear heat embossed in Soft Sky ink and then a good spattering of Pacific Point ink followed. The large snowflake was clear heat embossed in Pacific Point ink and punched out with the Flower Medallion Punch and popped up on dimensionals.

 

 

I added some washi tape from the Floral Boutique suite before adding the Night of Navy clear embossed sentiment onto a banner and attached with dimensionals. The card was finished off with some of the Soft Sky coloured sequins from the Fancy Frost sequins pack.

 

 

I decorated the inside of the card with the coordinating sentiment, some more Pacific Point splatters, a strip of Floral Boutique washi tape and a small snowflake clear embossed over Soft Sky ink and punched out with the Snow Flurry Punch.

Christmas Pines for WWYS #94


 

Hello! and welcome to this week’s What Will You Stamp? Challenge. This week’s challenge is to use the Christmas Pines Stamp Set. You can purchase the stamp set and coordinating Pretty Pines Thinlits Dies as a bundle but you’d better be quick as it’s on the retiring list. Click here to grab yours before it’s gone forever!

 


Item # 143496 Christmas Pines Photopolymer Bundle

 

To start, I embossed the front panel of Whisper White cardstock with the Holly embossing folder and gave it a watercolour wash of Soft Sky. I then made a little “posy” of pine leaves topped with a couple of the gorgeously detailed pine cones cut from Early Espresso and Copper Foil. I added a Cherry Cobbler bow and finished it off with a couple of the Mini Jingle Bells.  So lovely!

 


 

You can see in the close-up photo below the sparkle on the bow. That was achieved by applying clear Wink of Stella and then Fine-Tip Glue pen over the top. I love the effect this creates. The sentiment was then stamped onto vellum and clear heat embossed and the card was finished off with some of the Soft Sky coloured sequins from the Fancy Frost sequins pack.
