Stylish Stems Framelits Dies

Hello,

I'll be disappointed when these beautiful Stylish Stems Framelits Dies (#142750) are retired, but we always have to make room for more exciting products. The flower is cut with these framelits.

 

The cardstock is Whisper White (#106549) and Watermelon Wonder (#138341). I embossed the cardfront with the Petal Burst Textured Impressions Embossing Folder (#141493). The 2 scalloped squares were cut with the Layering Squares Framelits (#141708). Happy Birthday and the banner is from the Birthday Banners stamp set (#p141506) and stamped with Watermelon Wonder ink (#138323). The co-ordinating framelit to cut this banner is in the Bunch Of Banners Framelits (#141488). I attached the banner and the white scalloped card with Stampin' Dimensionals (#104430).
So the retiring products here are the Stylish Stems Framelits Dies and the Watermelon Wonder card and ink.

Have a great weekend.

Till next time,

Happy Stamping!


Lesley.

Layering Squares Framelits Scrapbook page

Hello,

Here's a very simple scrapbook page using the Layering Squares Framelits (#141708).


 

The base page is Smokey Slate from the 12x12" Neutrals Collection (#131187). The other cardstock used is Basic Black (#121688), Real Red (#106578) and Whisper White (#106549). The Real Red card and the photos were cut with the Layering Square Framelits. The black squares were cut with the trimmer. The hardest part of this page is probably lining up all the squares and getting the correct distance between each square. I found an easy way to do this. I measured the 3 squares together (240mm), then took this measurement from the 304mm base size which left 64mm. I then divided this amount by 4 which is 16mm to give me equal spacing. I cut strips this size, then placed them on the page to easily arrange the squares as shown below. This makes it very easy to ensure everything is in line.

 

This is a great way to use photos that have a lot of background that can be cut from the photo and highlight the subject.


Till next time,

Happy Stamping!


Lesley.

Grateful Bunch

Hi and welcome,

These flowers from the Grateful Bunch stamp set (#p140691) are cut with the co-ordinating Blossom Punch (#140612).

 

All the images were stamped with Bermuda Bay ink (#131171). Happy Birthday is from the Big On Birthdays stamp set (#p142877). The cardstock is Whisper White (#106549) and Bermuda Bay (#131286). I used the Stitched Shapes Framelits (#145372) to cut the 2 circles. The Whisper White card front has been embossed with the Elegant Dots Textured Impressions Embossing Folder (#138287). The ribbon is Silver 1/8" Ribbon and I added White Perfect Accents (#138416)to the flower centres. I added a bit of sparkle to the larger flower using the Clear Wink Of Stella Brush (#141897).
The Grateful Bunch stamp set and the Blossoms Punch are retiring, as well as the Elegant Dots Embossing folder.

Have a great day.

Till next time,

Happy Stamping!

Guy Greetings

Hello,

It's a while since I made a masculine card, so here is one today using the Guy Greetings stamp set (#c138828, #w138825, #p137178).

 

The cardstock is Early Espresso (#121686) and Very Vanilla (#106550). Happy Birthday is from the Big On Birthdays stamp set (#p142877). The car and "to a classic" is from the Guy Greetings stamp set. These were all stamped with Early Espresso ink (#126974). The background was stamped with Crumb Cake ink (#126975) and these images are from the Gorgeous Grunge stamp set (#c130517, #w130514). The Early Espresso card behind the car and the square of Very Vanilla with the splotches were both cut with the Stitched Shapes Framelits Dies (#145372).

Paisley stamp set

Hello friends,

This beautiful Paisley stamp set (#142196) and matching Paisley Framelits Dies (#141849 will be returning in the new catalogue which is great news.

 

I have used Very Vanilla card (#106550) as well as Gold Foil Sheets (#132622). All the stamping has been heat embossed with VersaMark (#102283) and Gold Stampin' Emboss Powder (#109129). The Paisley Framelits were used to cut all the paisley images except the leaves. These were cut by hand as there is only a framelit for the smaller leaf in the set. I used the Stitched Shapes Framelits (#145372) to cut the Very Vanilla oval and the Layering Ovals Framelits (#141706) to cut the scalloped gold foil. Stampin' Dimensionals (#104430) were used to attach the greeting and the larger paisley.

Till next time,

Happy Stamping!


Lesley.

Flourishing Phrases

Hi everyone,

When I first saw the retiring list I thought the Flourishing Phrases stamp set was retiring, but then realised it was the bundle that is retiring so the stamp set and framelits will still be available in the next catalogue. You will find this with a number of the bundles that the products will be still be available but not as a bundle. I have used the Flourishing Phrases Bundle (#c142323, #w142322) for this card.

 

The base card is Rose Red (#108613), then I have used Wisteria Wonder (#124389), Whisper White (#106549), Garden Green (#108605) and Pink Pirouette card (#116203). I used Rose Red ink (#126954) to stamp the flower and sentiment from the Flourishing Phrases stamp set (#c141534, #w141531). The sentiment was cut with the Layering Ovals Framelits (#141706) and as usual I attached this with Stampin' Dimensionals (#104430). The flowers and leaves which were cut with the Flourish Thinlits (#141478) were glued using the Fine-Tip Glue Pen (#138309). I added some Metallic Enamel Shapes (#141678) to finish the card.

Till next time,

Happy Stamping!


Lesley.

Butterfly Thinlits

Hello ladies & guys,

I can't believe the weekend is here already. Where do the weeks go? On todays card I have used Mint Macaron card (#138344) and ink (#138326), which are in the In Colours that are retiring.

 

I have stamped on the Whisper White card (#106549) using the splotch from the Perpetual Birthday Calendar stamp set (#p137167) using the Mint Macaron ink. I stamped this image twice. Then I using the crosshatch image from Best Birds stamp set (#p141525), I heat embossed with VersaMark (#102283) and White Stampin' Emboss Powder (#109132) over the splotches. I also did  the same on the Mint Macaron card for the piece across the bottom of the card. The butterfly was cut with a framelit from the Butterfly Thinlits (#137360) from Gold Foil Sheets (#132622) and attached with Stampin' Dimensionals (#104430). Thank You is from the Rose Wonder stamp set (#p140697) and this was heat embossed with VersaMark and Gold Stampin' Emboss Powder (#109129). One of the Layering Ovals Framelits (#141706) was used to cut the sentiment. This was also attached with Dimensionals.
The Perpetual Birthday Calendar stamp set is also retiring.

Have a great weekend.

Till next time,

Happy Stamping!
