Congratulations

G’day Stampers,

Today’s card is one I created using one of the sketches from our Pretty Pattern Papers (check out the Page above) Tutorials.

Last week I shared with you a card using the same sketch & as it turned out, I was asked to create card using Pinks, White & Browns for a special occasion.

As I wanted to use the same layout from the one I shared last week, I decided to go with the Bloomin’ Love Stamp Set along with the Bloomin’ Heart Thinlits & of course the matching Love Blossoms DSP (retired).

I updated it by changing out the circle to squares by using the Layered Squares Framelits (loving these…), embossing a piece of Blushing Bride Card & adding Pearls.  Actually, to be truthful, I found the piece of Blushing Bride already cut to size & embossed so it was sort of easy to go from there.

Until next time, Happy Stampin’

Good Morning Stampers,

I’ve been playing with gorgeous “Serene Scenery” DSP Stack.  I will admit it sort of didn’t hit #2---Julyme when looking through the Catalogue, but ideas started forming in my mind on how to put it to good use.  The papers in the Stack are stunning!

For my card today, I used the sketch for this month, which made it so easy.  I had been wanting to play with paper by cutting & matching the design much the same way as we do with our stamps.  The sketch worked perfectly for my idea.

I will admit that I swapped part of the sketch to the opposite side but that is ok.  The beauty of sketches is that you have fun with them & make them work for you.

I am also loving all the great Bundles SU! have in the new Catalogue, including the many lovely Thinlits & Framelits, so I put one of them – “Sunshine Wishes” – to good use.

003wm-blog-insideAs I have so much Whisper White Baker’s Twine (retired) still staring at me waiting to be used, I used it on my card but you could easily replace with the Thick Baker’s Twine, Ribbon or even Washi Tape.

When trying to match Papers, be careful that you cut in the same direction or else you will have all sorts of problems.

I cut my Thinlits a number of times from scrap Whisper White Card so that they would look a little raised when on the Card.  I also created a bit of a shadow with the “Congrats” which meant I adhered the Melon Mambo just a little lower than the Whisper White.

You may have also noticed that I’ve used no stamps on my card today, thanks to this gorgeous Paper Stack & “Sunshine Wishes” Thinlits.

I’m really happy with this card, but would love to know what you think?

I saw a card when looking for something else on the internet the other day & loved the way the card had been created using DSP & Card in a Mosaic way.  After tracing it back to the original post, I would like to thank Kelly for sharing it her wonderful card.

This is a perfect way to use some of your DSP.  You can have as many pieces of DSP or Card as you like to create your own version of the card.  I decided to use just 2 pieces of DSP along with 1 coordinating Card for my mosaic.  Creating your card this way, you are able to create 3 more cards using the same Card & DSP.

The Mosaic Card fits in perfectly with our Pretty Pattern Papers whereby we encourage you to use all that gorgeous DSP you have sitting in your cupboard & not a game to cut into it.  Be sure to click on the link to purchase any of the tutorials available.

Don’t forget, by clicking on the link below, you are able to download a Free Tutorial to create your own card.  It also includes all the supplies I’ve used plus the measurements.

Until next time, Happy Stampin’

My card today is one I saw on Pinterest a couple of weeks ago & thought I would give it ago 4  May - TTusing all Stampin’ Up! products.  Thank you Julie for your inspiration.  I love the final result although it is very bright & way out of my comfort zone, but hey that is the great thing about creating & trying new things.

I’ve used Timeless Texture from the 2016 Occasions Catalogue which is due to retire at the end of the month so be quick to get in while you can.  The greeting/sentiment is from Perfect Pairings which was part of SAB 2016 where you could earn it for FREE.

Don’t forget, Sponging & Heat Embossing are our Technique Treats this month, so if you would like to learn how to do these techniques, then pop on over to the Techniques Treats Page to purchase them.  Even if you know how to do the techniques why not refresh your memory.

I’ve been playing with the Decorative Masks of late & loving the different looks I can achieve with these.  I have also been creating classes using 004wma-blogthem for Crafty Creations Classes – my volunteer classes.

For my card today, I saw something similar on Pinterest sometime ago & filed it in the back of my mind to have a play over the Christmas Break.  Looking at the original, my doesn’t look much like it but that is a good thing.

I’ve used the gorgeous “Birthday Blooms” from the current 2016 Occasions Catalogue & team it up with the greeting from “Sky is the Limit” which is from 2016 SAB.

I used one of the Decorative Masks from the “Happy Patterns” as I sort of wanted to create a wall which the Rose could sit on.  Not sure if I pulled it off, but I’m happy with the result.

My Pearls have been coloured with a Pink & Yellow Permanent Marker.  The colours are so close to Melon Mambo & Daffodil Delight that I couldn’t have planned it better if I tried.

I finished my Rose off by adding “Wink of Stella – Clear” to the flower.  I did try to get a good photo of all the lovely shinny bits, but unfortunately no luck.

Until next time, Happy Stampin’
