Mini Cups…

… of Ferrero Rochers.

I would like to take this opportunity to wish you all a very Safe & Happy Easter.

You may remember I created some of these way back in December for the local Christmas Fair.  Well, as it happens, they have an Easter Fair on the Good Friday each year, so I went along.

Thinking that they may be popular & a little different to what is on offer I created a heap of them & decided that I would only put a small display out at a time, but have more in hiding if needed.  They were a huge hit & couldn’t keep up the demand.

I originally found the idea on Pinterst sometime ago & for once in my life, had written the instructions on a piece of paper.  Mind you it took me a little bit to find them, but so glad I did.  Thank you so much for your inspiration.

To create my cups I’ve used lots of lovely DSP, including – By the Shore, Floral Boutique, Go Wild (retired), Cupcakes & Carousels (2017 Occasions), Affectionately Yours plus a heap of other DSP which is not shown.  For the “saucers” I used coordinating Cardstock which was punched using the 2″ Circle Punch or the Layering Circles Framelits.

To decorate the cups, lots of lovely Punches, Dies & Stamps were used – Blossom Punch, Elegant Butterfly & Bitty Butterfly Punches, Bold Butterfly Framelits, Botanical Builder Framelits, etc plus “Seaside Shore” Stamp Set to name a few.

Be sure to pop back in a couple of days time to check out another lot I created.April

Until next time, Happy Stampin’

When I created my card I am sharing with you today, all the items were current.  In fact, it 3  Juneis one of the cards created for our Pretty Pattern Papers which sees the release of the new Tutorial tomorrow, so be sure to head on back to grab your tutorial.

For my card I used the “Go Wild” DSP Stack (retired) to create my bags.  These were adhered to 3 separate pieces of Melon Mambo Card, a piece of Silver Cording Trim (retired) was used for the hands & pieces of Tissue adhere to the top of each bag.

I embossed a piece of Whisper White with the Boho Chic Embossing Folder before layering onto a piece of Melon Mambo before layering onto the Base Card – Daffodil Delight.

The greeting from SAB 2016 “Hello” Stamp Set was stamped onto Whisper White in Melon Mambo, cut into shape before layering onto a piece of Basic Black & then across the card front.  The Bags were adhered to the Card with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

To finish the card I cut 3 small flowers from the “Botanical Builder” Framelits 1 x Whisper White, 1 x Daffodil Delight & 1 x Melon Mambo, adhered them to each bag & popped a small Rhinestone to the centre of each to finish the card.

A very simple card but one that shows you how to use those little pieces of DSP lying around but you don’t want to toss out.

Until tomorrow, Happy Stampin’

Pretty Pattern Papers – June

G’day Stampers,

I sure hope you are enjoying your tutorials & using up a lot of your DSP.  I know I am & it has given me a new lease of life creating with my DSP.

This month we are playing with the “Go Wild” Paper Stack.  This stack retired at the 3  Junebeginning of the month but you can still play with the papers you have in your stash or any of the new DSP you may have purchased from the new Catalogue.

Don’t forget, along with the sketch, we have tutorials for 4 greeting cards, a list of Measurements (Metric & Imperial) plus a list of Supplies we have used for our cards.

To purchase your Tutorial, click on the Pretty Pattern Papers Page.

Until next time, Happy Stampin’

Happy Birthday Elaina

I’ve been playing with Slider Cards (prepping for classes) the last couple of 002wma-blogdays & decided to create one for my niece who turns 3 in a week or so.  If you google “Slider Cards“, all types will come up along with instructions.

In fact, I am so happy with my progress that I didn’t realise that I had created classes for the next 4 months including my volunteer class which is every week.  I am also happy that they are all very different, ie techniques, stamps, colours, etc.  I can only hope that I don’t change my mind at the last minute, which I find myself doing sometimes but more importantly the ladies like them too.

Because Elaina turns 3 this month & is into ducks, I thought it only appropriate that I create a card with ducks & of course we have to have 3 of them.

I did have to comprise on the coins as our 5c coin was a little big, so I punched a couple of circles using the Owl Builder Punch, stuck them together for strength & used them in lieu of the coins.  They are not as strong but it did the trick.

I also opened the gorgeous “Go Wild” DSP Paper Stack which I think suits the card.  I added a little bit of Bermuda Bay behind the ducks to create the illusion of water.

Until next time, Happy Stampin’

PS  Since the photo was taken, I’ve added coloured black Rhinestones to their eyes – much better!
