Time For Tea Bundle

Hello friends,

The Time For Tea bundle (#p148410) consists of  the Time For Tea stamp set (#p147069) and the Spot Of Tea Framelits (#146821).







I love this fancy fold card which is very easy to make. The Whisper White card (#106549) is 22.5cm x 10.5cm and scored at 7.5cm. I embossed the flap with the Tin Tile Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder (#147906). Inside the card, the Bermuda Bay card (#131286) measures 14cm x 9.5cm and the Coastal Cabana card is 22cm x 8.5cm and scored at 13cm. The Designer Series Paper from the Tea Room Specialty Designer Series Paper (#146894) is attached to the Coastal Cabana flap. I glued half of the Pearlised Doilie (#146938) on the DSP using the Fine-Tip Glue Pen (#138309). The sentiment is from A Good Day stamp set (#c145873, #w145870), stamped with Bermuda Bay ink (#147096). The cup also stamped with Bermuda Bay ink is from the Time For Tea stamp set. The sentiment and the Bermuda Bay card under the sentiment and the cup are cut with dies from the Spot Of Tea Framelits. I attached the cup and the  sentiment with Stampin’ Dimensionals (#104430). To enable you to tuck the flap under the sentiment only attach the Dimensionals on the left side.

Enjoy your day.

Pretty Pines Thinlits

Hi,

We sometimes focus on the latest catalogue and can forget about the annual catalogue which is also current. So today I have combined products from both catalogues for this Christmas card.




Poppy Parade (#121694) has been used for the base card. The Whisper White cardfront (#106549) has been embossed with the Softly Falling Textured Impressions Embossing Folder (#139672). Seasons Greetings from the Stylish Christmas stamp set (#c146773, #w146770) has been stamped with Poppy Parade ink (#147050). The ribbon is Poppy Parade 1/2” Textured Weave ribbon (#147813). The pine cones are cut with the Pretty Pines Thinlits (#141851) from Soft Suede card (#119982) and Crumb Cake card (#121685). I used the Gold Foil Sheet (#132622) for the bow from the same die set. The Sprig Punch (#148012) was used to punch the Garden Green (#108605) leaves. These were glued to the card with the Fine-Tip Glue Pen (#138309) and I used Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals (#144108) to attach the pine cones and bow.

Be creative and have a great day!

Timeless Textures

Hello,

The Stamparatus (#148187) is such a versatile tool for stamping and have used it here with a template to stamp an image perfectly 8 times on the Very Vanilla (#106550) square.




This stamp is from the Timeless Textures stamp set (#c140517, #w140514) and I have used Crumb Cake ink (#147116). The sentiment is from A Good Day stamp set (#c145873, #w145870), stamped with VersaMark (#102283) and embossed with Gold Stampin’ Emboss Powder (#109129), then heat set with the Heat Tool (#129056). The circles are cut with the Layering Circles Framelits (#141705). I used the Gold Foil Sheets for the circle, bow and “ribbon”. The bow and ribbon are cut with dies from the All The Presents Thinlits (#147917). The circles and bow were attached to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals (#104430) and I used Multipurpose Adhesive Sheets (#144106) on the back of the “Ribbon”. The Designer Series Paper is from Tranquil Tide (#146331). I sponged the edges of the Very Vanilla square with Fresh Fig ink (#144248).

Depending on where you position the stamp on the template, will depend on how your finished stamped images will look. Using the same image I stamped on another piece of card with these results below. So why not experiment to see what design you can achieve with various images.

The silver cross was glued to the white cross with the Fine-Tip Glue Pen (#138309) and I used Dimensionals to attach the blue cross to the card.

Happy Birthday Thinlits

Hello,

A great card for those that don’t particularly like stamping as there is no stamping on this card.




I embossed the Whisper White base card (#106549) with the Petal Burst Textured Impressions Embossing Folder (#141493). The Nature’s Poem Designer Series Paper (#146338) was attached to a piece of Soft Suede card (#119982). Happy Birthday was cut with the Happy Birthday Thinlit (#143700) from both Mint Macaron card (#138344) and Soft Suede card. I glued the 2 pieces together with the Fine-tip Glue Pen (#138309), offsetting slightly to give a shadow effect. The Whisper White and Soft Suede card were attached to the base card with Stampin’ Dimensionals (#104430).

Have a great day.

Apron Of Love

Hi,

It’s a while since I have made a masculine card and this one would be perfect for the male (or even female) who loves their BBQ.




The base card is Night Of Navy (#106577) and the card front is Whisper White (#106549) which I stamped with the Buffalo Check background stamp (#c147794, #w147797) using Poppy Parade ink (#147050).

I used the Night Of Navy from the Neutrals 6”x6” Designer Series Paper (#146967) for the apron and Whisper White for the pocket. The utensils were cut from the Silver Foil Sheets (#132178) with Multipurpose Adhesive Sheet (#144106) adhered to the back before cutting. The sentiment on the pocket is from the Apron Of Love stamp set (#p145835) and stamped with Poppy Parade ink. Happy Birthday from the Itty Bitty Greetings (#c146667, #w146664) was stamped with Night Of Navy ink and punched with the Classic Label Punch (#141491), then attached to the card with Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals (#144108).

Snowflake decoration

Hello,

Something a bit different today - a Christmas decoration, made using the largest die from the Snowfall Thinlits Dies (#149692). Yes, I do love this set.







This was a bit hard to photograph, so hope you can see it ok. I cut 4 snowflakes from the Silver Glimmer paper (#146960). I scored through the centre of each and glued them with Multipurpose Liquid Glue (#110755). I just glued the star in the middle and left the detailed parts of the snowflake. Add a piece of thread to hang this gorgeous snowflake. This is very easy to make so won’t take long to make a few for your christmas tree.

Have a great day.






Snowfall Thinlits

Welcome,

The Snowfall Thinlits Dies (#149692) consists of 20 beautiful snowflakes and flower dies, some of the dies co-ordinate with the Snow Is Glistening stamp set (#149742) and the Happiness Surrounds stamp set (#149744). Others cut out snowflakes in various shapes and sizes which can be used alone or in layers.  I have used a medium size snowflake for this card. A quick and easy card after a busy week.



I attached the Festive Farmhouse Designer Series Paper (#147820) to the Cherry Cobbler base card (#121681). Another piece of the same DSP was attached across the top of the card. The snowflake was cut from the Silver Glimmer Paper (#146960) and glued with the Fine Tip Glue Pen (#138309). The sentiment is from the Snow Is Glistening stamp set using Cherry Cobbler ink (#147083). I added the Snowflake Trinket (#149620) using a mini Glue Dot (#103383).
These 2 stamp sets, framelits and trinkets will all be available from 1st November. 

Have a great weekend.

Lined Alphabet Bundle

Hello friends,

Just received the Lined Alphabet Bundle (#148390) today so had to have a play with them. This bundle consists of the Lined Alphabet stamp set (#p145908) and the Layering Alphabet Edgelits Dies (#145664). I have only used the Edgelits on this card.




I used the 2018-2020 In-Color 6”x6” Designer Series Paper (#146963), then cut the individual letters using the 2018-2020 In Colours- Grapefruit Grove (#146995), Blueberry Bushel (#146991), Pineapple Punch (#146994), Lovely Lipstick (#146993) and Call Me Clover (#146992). I glued the individual letters with the Fine Tip Glue Pen (#138309). This was all attached to the Whisper White Base card (#106549). I cut the flowers from the Flourish Thinlits (#141478) using Merry Merlot and Tranquil Tide from the Joyous Noel 6”x6” Glimmer Paper. I had adhered the Multipurpose Adhesive Sheet to the back of this glimmer paper before cutting with the framelits. I used the Clear Wink Of Stella Glitter Brush (#141897) to add some glimmer to the letters.

Have a great day.

Hello & Welcome,

Another beautiful card using the Snow Is Glistening stamp set (#p149742). I love this Christmas Tree consisting of snowflakes.

I used the Heat Tool (#129056) to dry this. I stamped some snowflakes using Granite Gray ink (#147118) and the stamping off method. The Christmas Tree was stamped with VersaMark (#102283) and embossed with Silver Stampin’ Emboss powder (#109131) then set with the Heat Tool.

Hi Ladies & Guys,

The Beautiful Baubles Bundle (#p149920) consists of the Beautiful Baubles stamp set (#p147765) and the Detailed Baubles Thinlits Dies (#147924).




Firstly, I stamped the flourish from the Stylish Christmas stamp set (#c146773, #w146770) using Call Me Clover ink (#147139). Next, I embossed the Very Vanilla card front (#106550) with the Blizzard Thinlits Die (#147902) with the Big Shot Embossing Mat (#146327).

Petal Promenade Designer Series Paper

Hi & Welcome again,

The Petal Promenade Designer Series Paper (#146913) is such a beautiful combination of floral designs. I have used one of the smaller elements on this card.




The base card is Highland Heather (#147010), then the Gorgeous Grape card (#147011) is attached to the base. Another piece of Highland Heather is under the DSP. I stamped the sentiment from the Stitched All Around stamp set (#c146632, #w146629) using Gorgeous Grape ink (#147099), directly onto the DSP. The bow is a die from All The Presents Thinlits (#147917) and the detailed cutout at the bottom of the card is cut with the Stained Glass Thinlits (#146347). I used the Multipurpose Adhesive Sheet (#146347) for this, making it so much easier to adhere this detailed piece to the card. The bow was attached with Stampin’ Dimensionals (#104430).


Have a great day.




Stylish Christmas stamp set

Hello friends,

I have made this beautiful non Christmas card with the Stylish Christmas stamp set (#c146773, #w146770).




I love swirls and originally wanted this stamp set just for this gorgeous swirl image, although I did also like the flower. Now that I have had time to use it I like it even more. This is a “Distinkive” stamp set which means it creates different opacities in a single stamped image. I stamped the flowers with Rich Razzleberry ink (#147091) and fussy cut them. I stamped the swirls twice using VersaMark (#102283) and embossed with Silver Stampin’ Emboss Powder (#109131) and heat set with the Heat Tool (#129056). This was stamped onto Festive Farmhouse Designer Series Paper (#147820). The base card is Rich Razzleberry (119981). The sentiment is from the Accented Blooms stamp set (#c146681, #w146678) and stamped with Rich Razzleberry ink. One of the flowers was attached with Stampin’ Dimensionals (#104430). I added Clear Rhinestone Basic Jewels (#144220) to the flower centre and onto the cardfront.

I hope you are having a creative weekend.

Christmas Framelits 3D project

Hello friends,

I was thrilled how this Christmas Shadow Box turned out. First one I have made but really, just like scrapbooking. The first photo is before it is framed, so a bit easier to see the detail.







I have only used 1 stamp - Mary, Joseph and the donkey - from Night Of Bethlehem stamp set (#c145282, #w144809). This was stamped with Soft Suede ink (#147115). I used a full sheet (12”x12”) of the Joyous Noel Designer Series Paper (#147813) for the background. The Whisper White (#106549) Scalloped squares were cut with a die from the Layering Squares Framelits (#141708) and the Merry Merlot (#147005) squares were cut 8.5 x 8.5cm I embossed the White Squares with 3 different embossing folders - Softly Falling (#139672), Swirls & Curls (#147923) and Tin Tile Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder (#147906). The framelit sets used are All The Presents thinlits (#147917), Pretty Pines Thinlits (#141851), Starlight thinlits (#141840), Bethlehem Edgelits (#144676), Merry Christmas thinlits (#147912), Detailed Deer Thinlits (#147915), Detailed Baubles Thinlits (#147924) and Blizzard Thinlits (#147902). I used the Joyous Noel 6”x6” Glimmer Paper (#147817), Gold Foil Sheets (#132622), Gold Glimmer Paper (#146958), Crumb Cake card (#121685), and Tranquil Tide card (#144252).

Look forward to making a variety of these with different themes.

Enjoy your day whatever you are doing.
