Botanical Tags Thinlits

Hello Ladies & Guys,

I just received these beautiful Botanical Tags Thinlits (#146824) and just had to make something with them. After making a tag, then decided to add it to a card.



The base card is Lemon Lime Twist (#144250), then I attached the Designer Series Paper from Animal Expedition (#146902) to the Whisper White card (#106549). I wrapped a piece of the Whisper White 5/8” Polka Dot Ribbon (#146912) around the card front. The tag is cut with one of the dies from Botanical Tags Thinlits. The stamped images are all from the Botanical Bliss stamp set (#c146612, #w146609), and stamped with Lemon Lime Twist ink (#147145) and Pineapple Punch ink (#147141). The cut out leaves are cut with a die from the Botanical Tags Thinlits using Pineapple Punch card (#146994). The rounded corners of the tag are punched with the Detailed Trio punch (#146320). I added some silver sequins from the Metallics Sequins Assortment (#144214) to finish off the card.

Have a great day.

Serene Garden

Hello and Welcome,

The Serene Garden Bundle (#p148395) is a set that will allow you to stamp, emboss and die cut to create unique layers on your projects. This was one of those “must have” sets as soon as I saw it in the catalogue.


I embossed the Soft Sea Foam base card (#147012) with the beautiful Tufted 3D Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder (#146335). I then stamped the leaves on the Soft Sea Foam card and Old Olive card (#106576) using Soft Sea Foam ink 147102). One of the dies from the Garden Scene Framelits (#146355) enables you to just cut some of the leaves from the stamped image. This allows you to see the stamped image on the Old olive card underneath. I stamped the bird and the flowers with VersaMark (#102283) and heat embossed with Gold Stampin’ Emboss Powder (#109129) and heat set with the Heat Tool (#129056). These were then cut with the Garden Scene Framelits. Happy Birthday is from the Detailed With Love stamp set (#c146606, #w146603) and cut with an Oval from the Stitched Shapes Framelits (#145372). The bird, sentiment and flowers were attached to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals (#104430).

I hope you have a great week and have a chance to do what you love.

Animal Outing

Hi friends,

The giraffe and the frog on the branch are both images from the very cute Animal Outing stamp set (#c146600, #w146597) and are great for kids cards.




I stamped the giraffe twice using Tuxedo Black Memento ink (#132708), then coloured them with the Light Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Blend (#144586) and Ivory Stampin’ Blend (#144606). The frog and leaves were coloured with Light Old Olive (#144574) and the branch with Bronze (#144607). The branch with the frog were cut with a die from the Animal Friends Thinlits (#146823). Happy Birthday from Happy Birthday Gorgeous (#p143662) was stamped with Grapefruit Grove ink (#147142) on Very Vanilla card (#106550). The “fence” was cut with the Stained Glass Thinlits (#146347). I adhered the Multipurpose Adhesive Sheet (#144106) to the back of the Grapefruit Grove card before cutting this. I then attached this to a piece of Very Vanilla card, then I used Stampin’ Dimensionals (#104430) to attach this to the card. The branch was attached with Mini Glue Dots (#103683). The card front has been attached to Basic Black card (#121688).

Have a great weekend.

Hello again,

I love a bit of sparkle and shine on my cards and this one doesn’t disappoint, using the new Sparkle Glimmer Paper (#146957) to cut the butterfly using the Springtime Impressions Thinlits (#146326).

Delicate Lace Edgelits

Hello everyone,

The Delicate Lace Edgelits (#147053) consists of 3 beautiful lacey dies, and I used one on this card.



I embossed the Whisper White base card (#106549) with the Tufted 3D Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder (#146335). I used the Delicate Lace Edgelits to cut the Pool Party card (#124391), Coastal Cabana (#131302) and Bermuda Bay (#131286). I then layered these on the card. The sentiment is from the Painted Glass stamp set (#c147461,#w147458) and stamped with Bermuda Bay ink (#147096). The Copper Foil label (#142020), the Whisper White card with the sentiment as well as the Bermuda Bay flower are cut with the Stitched Seasons Framelits (#149013). This set along with the Blended Seasons stamp set (#c 149016, #w149019) are only available from 1st August till 31st August (or while stocks last) so if you love this, like I do, make sure you place your order ASAP. They are also available as a bundle (#c149894, #w149893)

  




Take note of the stitching around the labels. The stitching is on both sides of the cutting line, so it looks like this when cut -



........So you can use both pieces of the card with stitching on both.


I hope you are having a great day.

Sea Of Textures

Hi,

This cute octopus is from the Sea Of Textures stamp set (#c146488, #w146485) and this set bundles with the Under The Sea Framelits Dies (#146334). The bundle is also Sea Of Textures (#c148358, #w148357).


I embossed the Tranquil Tide base card (#144252) with the new Subtles Textured Impressions Embossing Folder (#143706). I love this subtle texture from this folder. The Tranquil Textures Designer Series Paper (#146331) is part of the Tranquil Textures Suite and teams beautifully with this Bundle. I stamped the frames from the Swirly Frames stamp set (#p146519) with VersaMark (#102283) and embossed with the new Black Emboss Powder (#146956) which was heat set with the Heat Tool (#129056). The round frame was cut with the Layering Circles Framelits (#141705). The seaweed and starfish are cut with the Under The Sea Framelits using Crumb Cake card (#121685), Cherry Cobbler (#121681), Tranquil Tide and Blueberry Bushel (#146991). “For You” is from the Cake Soiree stamp set (#c145745, #w145521). The octopus and sentiment were stamped with Tranquil Tide ink (#147146) and the octopus, starfish and circle frame were attached with Stamping Dimensionals (#104430) and Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals (#144108). I used the Fine Tip Glue Pen (#138309) to adhere the seaweed to the card.

Abstract Impressions

Hi Ladies and Guys,

Do you sometimes look at a stamp set and don’t think much about it, but when you actually see it used, it is suddenly a must have. Well that’s what happened to me with the Abstract Impressions stamp set (#p147513). This is a 2-step set and is bundled with the Springtime Impressions Thinlits Dies (#146326) - not used on this card.



I also love the beautiful new colours which I have used for this card. For the lighter colour of the flowers I used the stampin’ off method to give a lighter colour, then used full strength ink for the darker colour. The inks I used for the flowers are Mango Melody (#147093), Coastal Cabana (#147097) and Gorgeous Grape (#147099). I used Mint Macaron (#147106) and Garden Green (#147089) for the leaves. Gorgeous Grape ink was also used to stamp the sentiment. I added some Share What You Love Artisan Pearls (#146927) to the card. The cardstock is Gorgeous Grape (#147011), Coastal Cabana (#131302) and Whisper White (#106549).

Delightfully Detailed Laser-Cut Specialty Paper

Hello & Welcome,

I am finally back after a great holiday, so apologies for my absence over the last few weeks. I am so excited to be back in the craft room with so many fantastic products to “play” with. I have made this card today for a friend who is having an operation this week.



I attached a piece of the Whisper White Satin Ribbon (whoops! this is now retired) to the Petal Promenade Designer Series Paper (146913), then this has been attached to the Whisper White card (#106549). Then I attached the laser-cut paper from the Delightfully Detailed Laser-cut Specialty Paper (#146907). “Sending Love and Hugs” is from the Ribbon Of Courage stamp set (#c143855, #w143852) and stamped with Flirty Flamingo ink (#147052). I punched this with the Pretty Label punch (#143715), and sponged the edges also with Flirty Flamingo ink. This was attached to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals (#104430) and to finish the card I added the Share What You Love Artisan Pearls (#146927).

Rooted In Nature Bundle

Hello again.

The Rooted In Nature Bundle (#c148353, #w 148352) consists of the Rooted In Nature stamp set (#c146482, #w146479) and Nature’s Roots Framelits Dies (#146341) and have been used on this card. I know this will be a favourite with such a variety of beautiful natural images. 



  I splattered some Clear Wink Of Stella (#141897) on the Very Vanilla base card (#106550). The leaves and sentiment were stamped with Tranquil Tide ink (#147146) and the round piece of timber was stamped with Soft Suede ink (#147115). This has to be fussy cut but both types of leaves have a co-ordinating dies. The timber was adhered with Stampin’ Dimensionals (#104430). The piece of “timber” across the card is Wood Textures 6”x6” Designer Series Paper (#144177) which I embossed with the Pinewood Planks Textured Impressions Embossing Folder (#143708). Then I sanded this to show the “grain of the timber”. The DSP under the sentiment is from the Nature’s Poem Designer Series Paper (#146338).

Have a great day.
