Daisy Delight Spinner

Daisy-Delight---Close-Up

Today I am sharing with you a “Spinner Card” using the Delightful Daisy Suite, Page 126 of the 2017-2018 Annual Catalogue.  When I first saw this set I imagined it spinning on a card & then forgot about it until I saw this card on Pinterest which prompted me to get my act into gear & create one of my own.  Thank you for your inspiration!

In fact, this is the card we will be creating today in our “Cards @ Toogoom” Class this Daisy-Delight1---Insidemorning.  You still have time to come along.  Everything is supplied, just bring yourself or a friend.  9.30am – 11.00am.

My greeting has been printed onto Whisper White CS in Night of Navy, cut down to size & adhered to the Card Front.  You could easily stamp your own greeting or sentiment using one of the many lovely sets from the Annual Catalogue.

It was a pretty easy card to create but one with a bit of a Wow.  I am going to wind my flower up a little before posting off so that the customer’s mum will see it spin when she opens it.

Kylie’s International Highlights

The past month seems to have flown as it is that time when once again I am playing along with Kylie’s International Blog Highlights.

This month the theme is “Teacher’s Gifts“.  I don’t have any need for these gifts, but it is lovely to create something different & be out of your comfort one at the same time.

Not sure of what is Kylie’s International Highlights?   It is where Demonstrators from all around the world take part in a monthly Blog Highlight.  It’s a great way to get to know other Demonstrators & see projects using current Stampin’ Up!® product.

Vote for Me HereWhat is so different about this Blog Highlight?  YOU get to vote for your top 5 favourites.  The top ten will then get to take part in an international blog hop with Kylie & other talented successful demonstrators.

What do I do?  All you have to do is click on the “Vote for Me” photo at the side or head on over to Kylie’s Blog, click on the heart in the top right hand side of the picture.  I’m #5!

My project today is actually one that I created for one of my “Creative Classes” using theDeliightful-Daisy-Post-It-NDelightful Daisy” Suite.  This Suite is my all time favourite from the Annual Catalogue but haven’t really showcased any of the cards I’ve created.  I sometimes remember AFTER I’ve mailed the cards that I hadn’t taken any photos.

I think Post-It Note Holders are always very handy, so while creating my holder, I thought I would do something a little different & turn it into the shape of a “bag”.  The handle has been created using the gorgeous Daffodil Delight Double Stitched Ribbon.  Don’t you love it?

Seeing as though the ‘bag” was so cute, I thought it would be lovely to have a matching Delightful-Daisy-Cardcard to go with the gift, so out came the Suite once again.  I’m glad I did, as I am a little happy with the final result.

The gorgeous Petal Burst EF has been used both on the bag & the card – not sure if you can easily see it.  It finished the projects off perfectly.

I am loving the coordinating little “bag” & the card.  I do hope you do too.

Be sure to check out all the other lovely creations when you pop on over to Kylie’s Blog .  Don’t forget to go & vote for the ones you love & leave them a little love!

Until next time, Happy Stampin’

Daughter

Oh-So-Eclectic---close-up

Heya Stampers,

Today’s post is a very easy card using the “Oh So Eclectic” Stamp Set, which I actually cased from here.  I especially loved the colours, layout & how she stamped the flowers.  So easy but very striking with a WOW factor.  Thank you so much for your inspiration!

I actually didn’t change much at all as it was perfect the way it was, except I used Very Vanilla Card, changed out the greeting & I stamped a small image in amongst the flowersOh-So-Eclectic---inside from the same set.

The set is a 2-step stamping technique.  The beauty about this technique?  The images don’t have to be perfectly lined up with each other.

The flower outline was randomly stamped direct onto a piece of Very Vanilla using Memento Tuxedo Black Ink before stamping the matching solid image over the top using Berry Burst & Lemon Lime Twist Inks.  I then randomly stamped the small dotty image around the flowers in Memento Tuxedo Black Ink.

I stamped “Daughter” from the “Thoughtful Banners” Stamp Set onto scrap Very Vanilla.  The label outline was stamped using Berry Burst Ink before punching with the Classic Label Punch.

I layered the stamped card to a piece of Basic Black, then onto a piece of Lemon Lime Twist & finally to the Base Card – Berry Burst before popping on the sentiment with Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Hope you enjoyed my card today.

Until next time, Happy Stampin!

Lovely as a Tree

Realising that I no longer have many stamp sets for males, I went straight for my back up set – “Lovely as a Tree“.  It has been sooooooo long since I’ve had a play with this set that I thought it would be Lovely-as-a-Tree---Close-Up great to showcase at our “Cards @ Toogoom” class last Friday week.

As you know this is one of the longest sets available in the Catalogue.

I did start to case the card from the Annual Catalogue, Page 137, but as usual it sort of went off on its own.

The Old Olive has been embossed with the Woodland EF (which you can’t see very clearly but it does make the card) before adding to a piece of Very Vanilla, a piece of Solid Very Vanilla Baker’s Twine wrapped around the top part before being adhered to the Base Card – Chocolate Chip.

Lovely-as-a-Tree---InsideThe image has been stamped in Chocolate Chip Ink & then coloured & blended using the Watercolour Pencils before being die cut & layered onto a scallop circle & adhered to the Card Front.

For the inside I stamped the same image in Chocolate Chip Ink direct onto a piece of Very Vanilla before adhering to the Old Olive Base Card.

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.

Happy Birthday

A couple of weeks ago I created 2 cards using the fun “Bike Ride” Bundle.  Well today I amBike-Ride---Iside showing you the 3rd card created using basically the same supplies, colours & layout.  The differences being I’ve used Chocolate Chip as my Base Card, Embossing Paste & Crumb Cake & Chocolate Chip Ink Re-Fills along with Sunshine Sayings for my greeting.

To achieve my “footpath”,  I added a 3 small amounts of Embossing Paste onto the Silicone Craft Sheet, added a very tiny drop of Crumb Cake & Chocolate Chip Ink Refills to 2 of the amounts but not really mixing them.

I placed the “Brick” Decorative Mask to the bottom part of a piece of Whisper White Card, Bike-Ride---Embossing-Pasteapplied the White Embossing Paste followed by the Crumb Cake & then the Chocolate Chip to the Mask.  I found doing it this way, I had a more of a distinctive look with the colours.

The “Happy Birthday” was stamped onto a scrap of Whisper White CS, punched with the Classic Label Punch & adhered behind the bike to look like a “flag”.

I’m finding this Bundle lots of fun with lots of ideas popping into my head as I create my cards.

Happy Anniversary

I was asked to create a card for a special 40th Anniversary so the first stamp set that 20170630_125601blog-insidepopped into my mind was the Number of Years including the matching the “Large Number” Framelits along with the Bloomin’ Heart Thinlits.  Of course being the 40th I had to use the “Red Glimmer Paper”. 

This was perfect timing as I am a member of “Joy of Sets (SU!)” FB Group & they are having their first challenge this month.  The challenge is “RUBY – let’s see red on your cards“.

Being for a very special occasion, I thought a 5” square card would be nice.

I die cut the heart into a piece of Thick Whisper White Card using the Blooming Heart Thinlits & running through the Big Shot.  A piece of the Red Glimmer Paper was then adhered behind the cut out shape.  I also die cut a number of flowers scraps of the Red Glimmer Paper & Thick Whisper White Card for later on.  I wasn’t too sure which ones I was going to use.

The die cut heart was inlaid back into the shape using the Fine-Tip Glue Pen before layering onto the Base Card – Thick Whisper White.

I die cut the “4” & “0” from the Red Glimmer Paper using the Large Number Framelits by running through the Big Shot.  I repeated it twice but using Thick Whisper White Card as I wanted the numbers to pop out a little.  The die cut numbers were layered onto each 20170630_125538blog (2)other before finally adhering to the Card Front.

After settling on the Whisper White die cut flowers, these were adhered to heart with the Fine-Tip Glue Pen.

I stamped “Happy” onto scrap Whisper White in Memento Tuxedo Black Ink, punched it with the Classic Label Punch, cut the left side straight & adhered to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  The “th” was stamped onto scrap Whisper White in Memento Tuxedo Black Ink, cut back to size & a Banner Shape into the left hand side before being adhered to the top of the “o”.

The Banner image was stamped onto Whisper White Card in Memento Tuxedo Black Ink as was the “Anniversary“, fussy cut & adhered to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

To complete the card, Pearls Basic Jewels were applied to the centre of the flowers & randomly scattered around the card front.

For the inside & the envelopes, I used the remainder of the die cut Whisper White flowers along with the Red Glimmer flowers.

I do hope you like my card today, I know the lovely couple who received it did!

Until next time, Happy Stampin’

Scrapbook Page

I am a member of a Facebook Group called “Stampin’ Up! Scrapbook Global” & the challenge last week was to case (copy & share everything) a favourite layout from the gallery.  There are so many wonderful layouts that I was sort of torn as to which one to do, but eventually I settled on a great page created by Scrappam Boum  Thank you so much for your inspiration!  You created a gorgeous page.

I have used retired DSP but I am happy with the page just the same.  You could easily change out the designs to current product.  For me, it is a great excuse to #loveitchopit some of my DSP that is still sitting on my shelf.

If you read my blog, you know that I often create pages for my niece & post them down to her.  Sometimes I will add photos, other times the pages are left blank for her to add photos.  The same goes for the journaling – sometimes I do it & other times it is blank for 180617-(2)blogBonnie to do it.

I randomly stamped the bunch of flowers from the Birthday Blossoms Stamp Set onto a 12″ x 12″ Whisper White CS in Night of Navy, Marina Mist & Calypso Coral Inks.  I wanted to bring the colours out in the photo but at the same time not make it to “flowery”.

I cut a couple of pieces of the Celebrate Today DSP (2015 Occasions Catalogue) & layered them down the Whisper White Card.  I again cut 2 pieces of DSP from the same pack, punched a banner shape into 1 end of each piece with the Banner Triple Punch, cut each piece back to size & adhered them across the same Whisper White Card.

The photo was matted onto a piece of Marina Mist CS so that it wasn’t White on White & then mattered onto a piece of Night of Navy – again bringing out the colours the blokes are wearing & adhered to the page on an angle.

A flower was stamped onto scrap Whisper White with Calypso Coral Ink, punched with the matching Pansy Punch & adhered to the page with a Stampin’ Dimensional.  I then decided to stamp a leaf onto scrap Whisper White in Old Olive Ink, fussy cut it before adhering under the flower.

My journaling section was stamped with the bunch of flowers in Calypso Coral Ink, punched at one end with the Banner Triple Punch before layering onto a piece of Night of Navy CS which was cut back enough for a small edge to show around all sides, punched with the Banner Triple Punch & adhered to the page.  The actual journaling has been done with the Journaling Pen.

Hello There Swirly Bird

Today’s post is another from our Training weekend last month.  20170529_153743blog-inside

I’m a little bit happy with this card considering it has been cased from the new Catalogue but with a few changes.  I will say that it was going to start out as the card on Page 10 but then was changed at the last minute & I now the card on Page 171 (sort of).  Does that ever happen to you?

Don’t forget to use your Catalogues are a great source for ideas & inspiration.

We water washed a piece of Shimmery White Card with Sweet Sugarplum & Aqua Painter to get the background.  Seeing it in real life shows a lovely soft shinny background.

The shapes were die cut using the Swirly Scribbles Thinlits & adhered to the Card to make them look Faux Die Embossing.  Another use for your Framelits, Thinlits & Punches.

If you click on the link above the photo you will be able to download the Tutorial to create your own card.  I would love for you to share any cards you create using the tutorials.

Until next time, Happy Stampin’

Balloon Celebrations

Heya Stampers,

Today I am showing you a card we created in our “Cards @ Toogoom” class a couple of weeks ago.  I20170524_152841blog-inside am a little behind in posting our creations, but I am slowing getting there.

I wanted to create a Birthday Card which could be used for either a boy or girl & so went with the “Balloon Celebration” Stamp Set.  It has a matching Balloon Boutique Punch which makes life so much easier.  I also used the “Cherry on Top” DSP Stack (retired) along with a couple of 2015-2017 In-Colours which have since retired – Watermelon Wonder & Tip Top Taupe.

Because the front was so easy, I wanted to showcase that you could also do the inside a little different & it would be something the receiver would not be expecting when opening the card.  It is not what I had planned but after 20170524_142626blog-closeupseeing this card on Pinterest, I decided to go for it.  Meg called it a “Snowcone Pop-Up Card”.  Thank you so much for your photo instructions.

I’m quite happy with how the card turned out considering I wasn’t sure where I was going with it.  You could easily change the colours, DSP & Ribbon to current products & have yourself a completely different looking card.

If you click on the link above the photo, you will be able to download the instructions to create your own card.  They include all the supplies & measurement (metric & imperial).

Until next time, Happy Stampin’
