Stampin’ Up!

Petite petals card

This is the card the participants at a recent workshop completed. It is very simple but very effective.  If you would like to make a card like this why not book a workshop with your friends? It’s easy, you gather your friends and I come along and teach you how to do it. Instructions are included below.

2014-11-13 workshop cards 009

 

This simple card was created with a whisper white card base, a strip of whisper white (5cmx10.5cm), a strip of strawberry slush cardstock (5.5cm x 10.5cm), and a strip of paper to stamp the 3D flowers on.

1. Emboss the whisper white card base with the woodgrain embossing folder.

2. On your small strip of whisper white stamp one of the petite petals stamps all over, making sure some of your image goes off the edge of the whisper white.

3. Adhere the stamped whisper white to the strawberry slush cardstock then adhere this to the card base.

4. Stamp one flower from petite petals, flower shop, and beautiful bunch.

5. Using the co-ordinating punches punch these flowers out. Petitie petals punch, pansy punch and fun flower punch.  

6. Use your thumb to curl the flower petal up. This is achieved by pulling your thumb from the centre of the flower to the edge of the petal. The more dimension you create the more realistic they look.

7. Adhere the 3 flowers to each other using dimensionals.

If you have any questions or would like to book a workshop please don’t hesitate to contact me.

Until next time, happy crafting.

Thank you

I don’t think people acknowledge others enough in our society. I made this quick card one night for my eldest daughter because she helped me out. Hollie had only just turned 8. It was a busy evening (aren’t they all when you have young kids?) and I hadn’t had time to get the washing off the line. I was cooking dinner. My darling husband wasn’t home. I wasn’t getting flustered. The kids were nagging because they were hungry and were fighting with each other because, hey that’s what you do at the end of the day and you just want to go to bed. Hollie, seeing me a little flustered and knowing I wanted to get the washing off the line, offered to take the washing in for me. Isn’t that just so sweet?

2014-08-05 HJs thank you card 001

Hollie loves creating. Hollie loves praise. I left this outside her room so she could see it when she got up. Nothing special but the sentiment was what was special. She loved it and even now thinking about her taking the washing off the line for me makes me smile. What a lovely girl.

 

To create this card you will need:

Whisper white card stock

Blackberry Bliss cardstock and ink.

Scalloped edge punch

Hearts border punch

Big News for the sentiment and the hearts in the background.

If you would like any information on these products or any of my classes please don’t hesitate to contact me.

Until next time,

Happy crafting.

Stampin’ Up! blocks

One of the things that got me hooked on Stampin’ Up! was the amazing blocks for the clear stamps. I had never held another stamp block in my hands and have it feel so right.

2013-07-15 Stampin' Up! blocks 015

They have been designed so the contour of the along the side fits perfectly in you fingers. They are really amazing. I love them. Here is me holding block D.

They come in a variety of sizes but if I was going to recommend a starting size I would Block E would be the best as if fits most stamps onto it and is reasonably priced at $19.95. If you are looking at a bundle to start with I would recommend the Clear-mount Starter Bundle as it contains 3 blocks and comes with a 15% discount.

Project Life Stampin’ Up! style again

If you haven’t heard me bang on about Project Life yet you obviously haven’t been near me for the last 6 years. I have been a huge fan since Becky Higgins brought this system out.

I was ecstatic when Stampin’ Up! announced they were introducing Project Life as part of our line. As a busy mum of 5 Project Life has helped me keep up to date with memory keeping for our family.

You will have arrived here from Kelly’s blog, hopefully you will continue on the blog hop and be inspired to create something yourself.

Everyday Adventure Project Life kit

2014-07-25 Project life 002

This is a really simple version. This system is so awesome because you just print the photos and slip them in, add a bit of journaling and slip in some filler cards to make it all pretty. All I’ve added is the stamps from the Project Life Day to Day stamp set for the “April and the black arrow comes from the set Project Life Point & Click. Both of these sets are photopolymer and stamp just beautifully. 

Just a few bits of stamping from your stamp stash and you make a beautiful layout.

2014-07-25 Project life 004

This one is totally plain. Nothing but the photos and the Project Life kit.

2014-07-25 Project life 011

With this one I stepped it up a bit. I used the Everyday Adventure kit and the Everyday Adventure accessories kit. Just a little layering and some stamping add a whole other level to this layout.  I even stamped on the wood veneer. They are really cute.

I am leaving off the journaling until after I post this because it’s a bit mushy and I get a little embarrassed which is a little stupid because I like to read others’ mushy journaling.

Now you’ll be wanting to head to the next blog post. Next up is Christie. If you get lost I have a list of all the blogs at the bottom of the page for you to refer back to. Have fun being inspired by these wonderful ladies.
