Celebrate You Thinlits Dies

Welcome friends,

I hope you have been able to get the Celebrate You Thinlits Dies (#146840) from Saleabration. I love these dies. Time has almost run out to get them for free - till 31st March. However if you missed out, the good news is that they will be available to purchase from the new annual catalogue coming in June. Great news!!




I used “Celebrate” to cut the Springtime Foils Specialty Designer Series Paper (#147193), another very popular and gorgeous Saleabration product. I then cut this twice in Basic Black card (#121688) and attached the 3 pieces together for dimension. I used the Multipurpose Adhesive Sheets (#144106) on the back of each piece of card before cutting to make it easy to adhere each piece together. I then coloured “celebrate” using a Sponge Brayer (#141714) with Sweet Sugarplum ink (#141395). “Amazing” was cut from Basic Black card and I used Sweet Sugarplum card (#141423) for “You”. Sweet Sugarplum was used for the base card and Basic Black for the trim around the Designer Series Paper. The flowers are from the Hold On To Hope stamp set (#c145780, #w145776). The flowers were inked with Sweet Sugarplum Stampin’ Write marker from the 2016-2018 In-Colours (#141393) and Old Olive from the Brights Stampin’ Write Markers (#131259) was used to ink the leaves. The flowers were stamped on Whisper White card (#106549) and cut with a die from the Cross Of Hope Framelits Dies (#145654). 2 of the flowers were attached to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals (#104430).

I would like to wish you all a very Happy and safe Easter.

Happy Wishes

Hello,

The Happy Wishes stamp set (#c147227, #w147224) is a beautiful set from Saleabration which has such a variety of sentiments for so many occasions. Both words on this card are from this set.



I used the Stamparatus to stamp the images and as I was making a number of cards the same, this made it so easy. The Stamparatus will be available again from beginning of June when the new annual catalogue comes out. I inked “happy” with Wisteria Wonder ink (#126985), then using a Sponge Dauber (#133773) with Elegant Eggplant ink (#126969), I added the ink to the flowers on the stamp. I also used Elegant Eggplant ink for “anniversary”. Then I attached some of the Multipurpose Adhesive Sheets (#144106) to the back of the Very Vanilla card (#106550) and then cut the detailed image using the larger of the dies from the Detailed Floral Thinlits (#141482). This adhesive ensures that all the intricate pieces are adhered to the card. The card front was added to the Wisteria Wonder base card (#124389). The cute little hearts are cut with dies from the Sweet & Sassy Framelits (#141707) using Elegant Eggplant card (#108614) and Gold Glimmer Paper (#133719). These were attached to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals (#104430).

That’s all for today.

Saleabration finishes on 31st March so if you are wanting this or any other Saleabration product contact me now before you miss out. I cut the oval with the Layering Ovals Framelits (#141706), then attached this to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals (#104430). The crosses are cut with dies from the Cross Of Hope Framelits (#145654), using Gold (#132622) and Silver (#132178) Foil Sheets. With Sympathy from Flourishing Phrases stamp set (#c141534, #w141531) was stamped with VersaMark (#102283) and heat embossed with Gold Stampin’ Emboss Powder (#109129) and set with the Heat Tool (#129056).

Myths & Magic Suite

Hello friends,

Another cute little girls card using the Myths & Magic suite.



I used Whisper White (#106549) for the base card. The Designer Series Paper is Myths & Magic Specialty DSP (#145600. The DSP with the mermaids was cut into strips and attached to another piece of Designer Series Paper with Stampin’ Dimensionals (104430). I stamped the mermaid from the Magical Day stamp set (#c145857) with Tuxedo Black Memento ink (#132708), then coloured with Stampin’ Blends. The colours I used are Light Pool Party (#144595), Light Daffodil Delight (#144586), Dark Daffodil Delight (#144585) and Light Pink Pirouette (#144593).

The sentiment was stamped with Pool Party ink (#126982), then this was cut with the die from the Magical Mates Framelits. I also cut another banner for the sentiment using the DSP, cut the ends and attached it to the banner with the sentiment.

Have a great day.

Masculine card 7


Hello,

Here is my final masculine card this week. I have used the Wood Textures Designer Series Paper Stack (#144177) on Sahara Sand card (#121695).


Each of the pieces of DSP were cut 9.5cm x 2.5cm which fitted nicely on the card. I stamped the guitar and the sentiment from the Epic Celebrations stamp set (#c147236) using VersaMark (#102283) and embossed with the Gold Stampin’ Emboss Powder (#109129), which needs to be heat set with the Heat Tool (#129056). Both these were stamped onto Very Vanilla card (#106550). The sentiment and the Tranquil Tide square were both cut with dies from the Stitched Shapes framelits (#145372). I used Stampin’ Dimensionals (#104430) to attach both the sentiment and guitar to the card.

I often hear that people struggle with masculine cards so I hope I have inspired you with some easy masculine cards this week.

The card for the banners are Soft Suede, Night Of Navy (#106577) and Tranquil Tide (#144252).

Hello,

The next masculine card is very simple, stamping just a sentiment from the Guy Greetings stamp set (#c138828, #w138825, #p137178).



Night Of Navy (#106577) has been used for the base card and the Designer Series Paper is True Gentleman (#145593). I stamped the sentiment onto Very Vanilla card (#106550) using Crushed Curry ink (#131173), then this was punched with the Tailored Tag Punch (#145667). I also punched a piece of Tranquil Tide card (#144252) and Night of Navy card with this punch. I cut the punched card along the centre to give 2 pieces, then attached them to the sentiment. This was then attached to the crushed Curry square which was cut with the Stitched Shapes Framelits (#145372). I also added the half tags below the square. I used Stampin’ Dimensionals (#104430) to attach the square to the card.

Then I added a piece of the Wood Textures Designer Series Paper Stack (#144177) and 2 strips of the Tranquil Tide card (#144252) to this. I also embossed the Tranquil Tide strips with the Pinewood Planks 3D Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder (#143708). Happy Birthday and the tools are from the Guy Greetings stamp set (#c138828, #w138825, #p137178). The inks used are Soft Suede (#126978) and Tranquil Tide (#144085).

Guy Greetings & True Gentleman DSP

Hello Ladies & Guys,

It’s a while since I made a masculine card so thought I should make one today, (especially as it’s my husbands birthday tomorrow) but as usual am running out of time, so this is another quick and easy card. I am sure he will like it as it has a car on it.




I used one of the designs from the True Gentleman Designer Series Paper (#145593) and this was attached to the Crushed Curry base card (#131288). I cut a piece of Crumb Cake card (#121685) with the largest of the square dies from the Stitched Shapes Framelits (#145372). The car from Guy Greetings stamp set (#c138828, #w138825, #p137178) was stamped with Dapper Denim ink (#141394) onto Very Vanilla card (#106550). I cut this with the same square framelit, but I wanted a rectangular shape, so I repositioned the framelit and just ran it through the Big Shot again. This was then attached with Stampin’ Dimensionals (#104430). Happy Birthday is from the Happy Birthday Gorgeous stamp set (#p143662), stamped with Crushed Curry ink (#131173) and punched with the Classic Label punch (#141491). This was attached with Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals (#144108).

Well, that’s all for today.
Hope you are having a great weekend.

Move Me Thinlits

Welcome friends,

Black and gold always looks elegant together, and this card could be used for a range of special occasions.







I have used Whisper White card (#106549), Basic Black card (#121688) and Gold Foil sheet (#132622). The Hexagon 3D Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder (#143231) was used to emboss the White card front. This was attached to the Basic Black card. A piece of Basic Black 3/8” Shimmer Ribbon (#144129) was wrapped around the card front which was then attached to the base card. Celebrate was cut with the Celebrate You Thinlits Dies (#146840) which is one of the Sale-a-bration products. Don’t forget Sale-a-bration finishes at the end of March so don’t miss out if you are still wanting some of the fantastic free products with a qualifying order. The Fine-Tip Glue Pen (#138309) was used to glue “Celebrate” to the card. One of the Gold Metallic Foil Doilies was added to the card, then the butterfly attached with Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals (#144108). The butterfly is cut with a die from the Move Me Thinlits (#143732) and I added a Clear Faceted Gem (#144142) to the butterfly.
“You” is stamped with Basic Black Archival Ink (#140931). You will find this stamp in the Amazing You stamp set (#c147215, #w147212), also a sale-a-bration product and co-ordinates with the Celebrate you Thinlits. The heart framelit to cut this is in the Lot Of Love Box Framelits (#145653).

That’s all for today.

Sweet Cupcake

Hello,

The Sweet Cupcake stamp set (#p141498) is photopolymer, and is a 2 step stamp, so the Stamparatus is just ideal for stamping all the images.



The “icing” was stamped with Flirty Flamingo ink (#141397) - for the first layer I used the ink at “full strength”, the next layer I stamped off once and the third layer I stamped off twice before stamping the image. This was stamped on Whisper White card (#106549). The base of the cupcake was stamped onto Powder Pink card (#144251) with Flirty Flamingo ink. I only stamped the one image for this. These were then cut with the co-ordinating Cupcakes Cutouts Framelits (#141474) and attached to the DSP with Stampin’ Dimensionals (#104430). The Designer Series Paper is from the Petal Passion Memories & More Card Pack (#145592) and this was attached to the Flirty Flamingo card (#141421). The base card is Whisper White  and the Powder Pink card was embossed with the Simple Stripes Textured Impressions Embossing Folder (#145648). The sentiment from the Sweet Cupcake set was stamped with Flirty Flamingo ink, then cut with the Classic Label Punch (#141491). I used Stampin’ Dimensionals to adhere this to the card and finished the card by glueing some Calypso Coral sequins from the Iredescent Sequin Assortment (#144212) with the Fine-Tip Glue Pen (#138309).

Enjoy your day.

Wood Textures Designer Series Paper

Hello again everyone,


The Wood Textures Designer Series Paper (#144177) has a great range of timber images in various colours and designs. I think this card would be suitable for either male or female.




The base card is Very Vanilla (#106550) and I stamped the sentiment from A Good Day stamp set (#c145873, #w145870) also onto Very Vanilla card. I used Archival Basic Black ink (#140931) and punched this with the 1-1/4” Circle punch (#119861). This was attached to Basic Black card (#121688) which was punched with the 1-3/8” circle punch (#119860). I stamped on the Wood Textures Designer Series Paper using VersaMark (#102283) and embossed with Gold Stampin’ Emboss Powder (#109129) and heat set it with the Heat Tool (#129056). These images are from the Hello Friend stamp set (#c144059, #w144055) and Hold On To Hope stamp set (#c145780, #w145776). The dragonfly is cut with the Detailed Dragonfly thinlits (#142749) from Basic Black card, then this was attached to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals (104430). I adhered the DSP to a piece of Basic Black card.

Well, that’s all for today.

Sale-a-bration products

Welcome,

Sale-a-bration will be coming to an end at the end of March, so if there are still some of these exciting products you want, don’t delay in contacting me. I would hate you to miss out. I have used a variety of these free products on todays card.




I stamped on the Peekaboo Peach card (#141422) with VersaMark 102283) to give a very subtle background and a watermark effect. I used the flower from the Amazing You stamp set (#c147215, #w147212). I also stamped the same flower twice on Very Vanilla card (#106550) using Peekaboo Peach ink (#141398) and fussy cut these. One of these I cut the flower only and layered it over the other image for some dimension. Stampin’ Dimensionals (#104430) were used to attach the 2 images together. “Celebrate“ & “You” are both from the Amazing You stamp set and also stamped with Peekaboo Peach ink. “Amazing” was cut with a die from the Celebrate You Thinlits Dies (#146840) from Peekaboo Peach card, then I added some glitter using the Clear Wink Of Stella Brush (#141897). This was glued with the Fine-Tip Glue Pen (#138309). The beautiful Designer Series Paper is Springtime Foils Specialty DSP (#147193). This pack consists of 3 of each of 4 single sided designs in Gold Foil, Rose Gold Foil and Silver Foil on a white background. I decided to add some colour to this DSP so I sponged Peekaboo Peach ink using a Sponge Brayer (#141714) and I wanted to achieve an ombré look, so it is darker at the bottom and gets lighter at the top. The foil resists the ink, so you can still see the original design. If you feel the ink has got onto the foil, just rub over the piece with a tissue and any excess will rub off.  I used the Lots Of Labels Framelits (#138281) to cut the Smokey Slate card (#131291) and the Designer Series Paper. These were attached to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

The Sale-a-bration products used here are the Amazing You stamp set, Celebate You Thinlits Dies and the Springtime Foils Specialty Designer Series Paper.

Hope you are having a fantastic day.

Flower Shop

Hello,

I stamped the flowers from the Flower Shop stamp set (#c130942, #w130939) onto Vellum Cardstock (#106584). These were stamped with VersaMark (#102283) and embossed with Silver Embossing Powder (#109131), which then needs to be heat set with the Heat Tool (#129056).




These flowers have a co-ordinating  punch - the Pansy Punch (#130698) and I coloured the flowers with the Dark Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Blends (#144585). I embossed the Daffodil Delight base card (#121680) with the Basket Weave Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder which part of the Blossoming Basket Bundle (#c147505, #w147504).  The beautiful designer series paper is Springtime Foils Specialty DSP (#147193). I cut the Smokey Slate card (#131291) and the Shimmery White card (#121717) with the Lots Of Labels Framelits (#138281). The labels were attached to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals (#104430) and I also used Dimensionals to attach the flowers. The leaves from the Painted Harvest stamp set (#p144783) were stamped with Pear Pizzaz ink (#131180) and these were punched with the Leaf Punch (#144667) and Mini Glue Dots (#103683) were used to attach the leaves to the card. I adhered a Multipurpose Adhesive Sheet (#144106) to the back of a piece of Silver Foil (#132178), before cutting  “celebrate” which is a die from the Celebrate You Thinlits (#146840). The Multipurpose adhesive makes is so easy to attach detailed cutouts to the card.

The Designer Series Paper, the Celebrate You Thinlits and the Basket Weave embossing folder are all free products available with qualifying orders during Sale-a-bration. If you are still wanting to take advantage of these or the other exciting free products, you have till the end of March, so contact me as soon as possible.

A Good Day

Hi,

How cute are these Mini Embroidery Hoops (#146243) which are available from the Occasions catalogue. There are 2 sizes with 8 hoops in the pack.

I stamped the image from A Good Day stamp set (#c145873, #w145870) with Emerad Envy ink (#141396). This was punched with the 1-1/8” Scallop Circle Punch (#146138).

Detailed Floral Thinlits

Hi everyone,

I think this is a first for me - a card made just with framelits and no stamping.




The base card and card front are both Very Vanilla (#106550). I cut the card front with the Detailed Floral Thinlits (#141482). This was glued to the card using the Fine-Tip Glue Pen (#138309). The Multipurpose Adhesive Sheets (#144106) would have worked well on this detailed cutout. Celebrate and the birds were cut from the Gold Foil Sheets (#142020). Celebrate is from the Celebrate You Thinlits Dies (#146840) from  Sale-a-bration. The birds are from the Birds & Blooms Thinlits (#141477) and I attached these with Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals (#144108).

Enjoy your day.

Timeless Textures

Hello,

I know we all get excited when new products are available, but we still have great products in the annual catalogue, so for today’s card I have used some of my favourite products from that catalogue.



I attached the Very Vanilla card front (#106550) on to a piece of Elegant Eggplant card (#108614), then this was attached to the Very Vanilla Base card. The images from Timeless Textures stamp set (#c140517, #w140514) were stamped with Powder Pink ink (#144084), Sahara Sand (#126976), Wisteria Wonder ink (#126985) and So Saffron (#126957). The little stamped butterfly is from the You Move Me stamp set (#p144002) and the sentiment is from Birthday Basics stamp set (#c138816, #w138813, #p137154). The butterfly and sentiment were stamped with Elegant Eggplant ink (#126969). I used the Move Me Thinlits (#143732) to cut the butterfly from the Copper Foil Sheet (#142020) and I attached this to the card with Mini Stampib’ Dimensionals (#144108). I glued the 3 copper sequins from the Metallic Sequin Assortment (#144214) using the Fine-Tip Glue Pen (#138309). 

Have a great day.

Petal Palette

Hello,

This little bird from the Petal Palette stamp set (#c145788, #w145785) is so cute.




I attached the Petal Passion Designer Series Paper (#145589) to the Cherry Cobbler base card (#121681). This DSP has different designs in Black & White and you can add colour using your favourite colouring techniques which makes it easy to co-ordinate colours with your projects.  I embosssed a piece of Whisper White card (#106549) with one of the Petal Pair Textured Impressions Embossing Folders (#145656). There are 2 narrow folders in this set.  I cut a piece of Cherry Cobbler card with a die from the Petals & More Thinlits (#145655) and glued this on top of the White card using the Fine-Tip Glue Pen (#138309). Celebrate which is from the Amzing You stamp set (#c147215, #w147212) - from Sale-a-bration - was stamped with Cherry Cobbler ink (#126966) and I punched this with the Tailored Tag Punch (#145667). I also punched Cherry Cobbler card and Basic Black card (#121688) to place under the sentiment. There is a co-ordinating die in the Petals & More Thinlits (#145655) to cut the bird. I used Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals (#144108) to attach the bird to the card.

Don’t forget that Sale-a-bration continues till the end of the month, so if you are wanting to get some of the fabulous free products just contact me, before its too late.

Have a great day.

Petal Palette

Hello and welcome,

Here’s a quick and easy card to show one of the great ways you can use the new Stamparatus. This will be available to order in June with the new annual catalogue (if you weren’t lucky enough to order one already).




I used Whisper White card (#106549) and Lemon Lime Twist (#144086) and the ink is Lemon Lime Twist (#144086). I attached the Thank You stamp from the Petal Palette set (#c145788, #w145785) to the Stamparatus. I love how the hinged plate can be be moved to evenly stamp repeatedly. The bird is also from the Petal Palette stamp set and cut with the co-ordinating Petals & More Thinlits Dies (#145655).

Have a great day.

Heart Happiness

Hello Ladies & Guys,

I think the Heart Happiness stamp set (#p145769) from the Occasions catalogue will be such a versatile set with such a variety of hearts in different shapes and sizes. The hearts also co-ordinate with the Sweet & Sassy Framelits (#141707) as well as the Lots Of Love Box Framelits (#145653).



The card front is from the Painted With Love Specialty Designer Series Paper (#145580) and this has been attached to the Very Vanilla base card (#106550). I stamped one heart directly onto the DSP using VersaMark (#102283) and heat embossed the Gold Stampin’ Emboss Powder (#109129) with the Heat Tool (#129056). The heart with the flowers were also stamped and heat embossed with Gold. The other hearts were stamped with Calypso Coral ink (#126983). I attached the larger heart with Stampin’ Dimensionals (#104430). The ribbon and bow is Calypso Coral 1/4” Ombré Ribbon (#144235) and I used Mini Glue dots (#103683) to attach the bow. 

Enjoy your day.

You’re Inspiring

Welcome everyone,

I admit I’m not good at colouring and often don’t get a stamp set because it needs colouring, but have decided I need to practice, as there are so many beautiful stamp sets which can be coloured with Stampin’ Blends, Stampin’ Write markers or other colouring methods. This stamp set - You’re Inspiring (#c145808, #w145805) is one of those beautiful sets.





I stamped the flowers onto the Whisper White base card (#106549) using Tuxedo Black Memento ink (#132708). The flowers were coloured with Crushed Curry, Daffodil Delight, Old Olive and Crumb Cake Stampin’ Write Markers. These markers are available in their collections - Regals (#131262), Brights (#131259), and Neutrals (#131261). The sentiment was stamped onto a piece of Color Theory Designer Series Paper Stack (#144193) also with the Tuxedo Black Memento ink. The lace is Very Vanilla 1/2” Lace Trim (#141672). I also added some Glitter & Clear Epoxy Shapes (#145632) to the card. Not sure if you can see these on the top part of the card.

That’s all for today.

Springtime Foils Specialty DSP

Hello again,

Another absolutely beautiful Sale-a-bration product is the Springtime Foils Specialty Designer Series Paper (#147193). There are 4 designs with Copper, Gold and Silver Foil, and I have used 2 of the designs on this card.



The DSP on the right side has been coloured with Stampin’ Blends - Light Calypso Coral (#144042) and Light Old Olive (#144574). The base card is Whisper White (#106549). Happy Birthday is from the Window Shopping Stamp Set (#c143265, #w142920) and stamped with Calypso Coral ink (#126983). The Whisper White and Calypso Coral (#124392) banners were cut with the Banner Triple Punch (#138292). The banners were attached to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals (#104430), then I added some of the copper sequins from the Metallics Sequins Assortment (#144214) using the Fine-Tip Glue Pen (#138309). The ribbon is the 1/4” Copper Trim.

With beautiful paper like this, it is so easy to make a quick and easy card.

Have a great day.
