Global Design Project 096

I have a clean & simple card for you today which has been inspired by the Global Design GDP096Project #GDP076 – Case the Designer Challenge.  Hasn’t Tanja Kolar created a gorgeous card?

I had been thinking about creating something with the “Butterfly Basics” Stamp Set for a couple of days now & this was just the perfect way to showcase this lovely set.  I am also low on my Sympathy Cards (have a Expo coming up) so it worked in well.

The Very Vanilla Card has been embossed with the Fluttering EF & then adhered to the Base Card – Elegant Eggplant.

Butterfly-Basics---Close-UPThe large flower was inked using my Regals Stampin’ Write Markers – Always Artichoke & Elegant Eggplant, while the middle of the flower is Crushed Curry.

The butterfly was stamped onto Very Vanilla in Rose Red before die cutting with the matching Butterflies Thinlits & adhered to the card with Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals under the wings.  This is so that the wings would stay popped a little.

The sentiment was stamped onto scrap Very Vanilla in Elegant Eggplant before being punched with the Classic Label Punch & adhered to the Card Front with Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I completed the card by adding Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the centre of the butterfly &Butterfly-Basics---Inside randomly scattering a couple around the square.

Thank you Global Design Team for a great challenge.  Be sure to go & check out the amazing creations everyone has created.

256. With Sympathy – Butterfly Basics

Butterfly-Basics

Kinda Eclectic

Heya Stampers,

I set my team a challenge a couple of weeks ago to create a card using the sketch.  Today’s post is my take on the challenge.  I do have another & will share once I’ve found it.#9---2017

As the card went off in the mail about 2 or 3 weeks ago I am going off the photo on how I created it.

A circle was die cut into the middle of a piece of Marina Mist CS using the Layering Circles Framelits, ran through the Big Shot & embossed with the Fluttering EF.

I laid it onto the Base Card Front – Whisper White & drew a circle around the inside of the circle with a pencil – this is so that I had an idea where to stamp.

The images are from the “Kinda Eclectic” Stamp Set (retiring) with the sun So Saffron, the leaf peaking out from the bottom right hand corner Wild Wasabi & the sentiment Early Espresso.  The pencil line was carefully removed using a rubber.

20170422_084909blog-(2)blogA piece of Window Sheet was adhered to the back of the embossed Marina Mist before layering onto the Whisper White Base Card.

The flower from the “Flower Shop” Stamp Set was stamped onto a piece of scrap Whisper White in Pink Pirouette Ink & punched with the matching Pansy Punch.  A second leaf from the “Kinda Eclectic” Stamp Set was stamped onto a piece of scrap Whisper White in Wild Wasabi  before fussy cutting.

The flower was adhered to the Card Front with Stampin’ Dimensionals while the leaf was adhered just under the flower so that it hung down a little.  I stamped a small butterfly from the same set in So Saffron Ink, punched with the Bitty Punch & adhered to the top of the Window Sheet with a Mini Glue Dot.

To complete my card I randomly scattered Rhinestones around the front, 1 to the middle of the flower & a couple of small ones to the centre of the butterfly.

Why not have a go at creating something using the sketch.

Until next time, Happy Stampin’

Goodbye Botanical Blooms

There is something about this card I love.  I think it could be the colours which make the20170404_135229_resizedblog (2) card pop!  As I wanted the card to be mostly Whisper White, I thought it would be nice to add a little bit of Daffodil Delight & pops of Basic Black.

I wanted the flowers look like they were in a frame, yet sort of “poking out”.  I opted for a circle just to be a little different.  The background of Whisper White has been embossed with the “Softly Falling” EF.

The touches of Old Olive leaves lift everything away from the Whisper White background.

20170404_135246_resized-bloThe Basic Black circle has been created using the Layering Circles Framelits, the flowers sponged in Daffodil Delight Ink using Sponge Daubers.

The Botanical Builder Framelits create beautiful flowers & they are different every time you use them.

For the inside of my card I used one of the flowers I had die cut & sponged for the front but didn’t end up using.  Shame for it to go to waste & not be used.

Card #3

Today is one of the cards I created a couple of weeks ago using the “Falling Flowers” Bundle 20170325_145307_resizedblogfrom the 2016-2017 Annual Catalogue.  The bundle includes the Stamp Set & the matching “May Flowers” Framelits.

It is now on its way to Amber, one of my nieces who celebrate their 30th birthday this week.  Crikey, where does the time go?  I can see them as tiny little babies!

I actually did this for a challenge & now as I didn’t know what one it was, I missed out on posting it, but thought I would still share with you.

Gift Set

Over the past week or so I’ve shared with you the little gift I created for Kathy who signed 20170201_063901_resized_1blup to be a SU! Demo.  I don’t do all my gifts the same as I like to create individually for each one.

Today, I am sharing with you, the Gift Bag created to house those gifts including the card created to go with them.   I created this bag a long time ago & have always loved it.

Again, I’ve used the gorgeous “Falling in Love” DSP from the 2017 Occasions Catalogue.  I’ve kept it very simple as I wanted the DSP to be the showcase.

I used Soft Sky CS for the base of the bag.  A piece of Sweet Sugarplum CS was embossed with the lovely Falling Petals EF before being adhered to the bottom part of the Bag, while a piece of the DSP was adhered to the top.  The handle has been created from a piece of Sweet Sugarplum Ruched Ribbon.

I stamped “Just for You” from “So In Love” Stamp Set onto a piece of Very Vanilla CS with Sweet Sugarplum Ink, die cut the circle using the Stitched Shapes Framelits & adhered to a piece of Sweet Sugarplum CS which had been die cut with the Layering Circles Framelits & adhered to the bag where it opened.

The 2 Butterflies were punched from Blushing Bride Glimmer Paper using the Bitty Butterfly Punch & the Elegant Butterfly Punch before being adhering to the bag.

I hope you like my creation today.

Until next time, Happy Stampin’

Post-It Notes

A part of the small gift I posted off to Kathy (new Downline), were Post-It Notes which I thought would be very handy for her.

Again, I’ve used the lovely “Falling in Love” DSP but teamed it up with a piece of Sweet Sugarplum which was embossed with the “Falling Petals” EF & is part of the “Falling in Love” Suite, Page 51.  The base of the Holder is Soft Sky.

I also punched a Butterfly from the Blushing Bride Glimmer Paper with the Bitty Butterfly Punch.
