Ornate Garden Suite

Hello Ladies & Guys,

Over the last few weeks I have made some cards using the Ornate Garden Suite. This is now available to purchase and is a sneak peek from the Annual catalogue which will be available in the next couple of months. You can purchase the whole suite or individual products. Today’s card is using some of the beautiful products from this suite.






I embossed the card front with the Ornate Floral 3D Embossing Folder (#152725), then attached this to the Whisper White base card (#106549). The Designer Series Paper is Ornate Garden Specialty Designer Series Paper (#152488). Some of the sheets have Gold Foil Designs like this one on the card. The sentiment is from the Painted Glass stamp set (#c148220) and stamped with VersaMark (#102283) and embossed with Gold Stampin’ Emboss Powder (#109129). This was set with the Heat Tool (#129056). This was then punched with the Label Me Lovely punch (#151296). After punching the top of the sentiment I then re-inserted the sentiment into the punch to punch the bottom part to make the punched piece smaller. A Gilded Gem (#152478) was placed under the sentiment.

Check out the beautiful products in this Ornate Garden Suite here.

Stay safe & healthy & keep crafting.

Sea Of Textures with Come Sail Away Memories & More Card Pack

Welcome friends,

I have used one of the beautiful laser-cut cards from the Come Sail Away Memories & More (#149552) for the card front.




I attached this to the Seaside Spray base card (#150889) using the Fine -Tip Glue Pen (#138309). I stamped the octopus from the Sea Of Textures stamp set (#c151267) using Night Of Navy ink (#147110). This was then cut with the co-ordinating die from Under The Sea Dies (#146334), then attached to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals (#104430). “Happy Birthday” is from the Perennial Birthday stamp set (#c151240) and also stamped with Night Of Navy ink on Whisper White card (#106549). I cut this with a Stitched Rectangles Die (#148551). I used Night Of Navy card (#106577) for the banners under the sentiment.

With beautiful products it doesn’t take a lot of work to get a lovely card like this one.

Stay safe and well and keep crafting!!

Come Sail Away Memories & More Card Pack

Hi again,

Another quick and easy card this time using the Come Sail Away Memories and More Card Pack (#149552).




This card pack consists of double sided printed cards - 2 each of 25 designs in 2 sizes. There are also single sided laser-cut specialty cards and 4 sticker sheets. This pack is very convenient for a great masculine card as well as scrapbooking.
The base card is Whisper White (#106549). I attached 2 of the smaller design cards to Night Of Navy card (#106577) before attaching to the base card. “Celebrate”, the anchor, compass and the chevrons are all stickers from the pack, so you couldn’t make an easier card than this.

Stay safe & keep crafting!!



Double Z Fold card

Hello friends,

Today’s card is the same style as yesterday’s but using different Designer Series Paper and dies for the card front, so all the measurements are the same, so check out yesterday’s post for these








The cardstock is Night Of  Navy (#106577), So Saffron (#108611), Whisper White (#106549) and the Designer Series Paper is Pressed Petals Specialty DSP (#149500). I embossed the So Saffron card front with the Stone 3D Embossing Folder which is part of the Power Of Hope Bundle (#152318) from Sale-a-bration. The sentiment is from Woven Heirlooms stamp set (#c149306) and stamped with Night Of Navy ink (#147110). This was cut with the Stitched So Sweetly Dies (#151690) and attached to the Night Of Navy card which was cut with a die from the Ornate Layers dies (#152726). I attached this to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals (#104430).

3 years ago I started painting our house (inside) and never finished it as I didn't have time. Well I no longer have that excuse with self isolation, so today I started painting again. That is only the first job on a very long list of jobs to do during these “quieter” times. Cards & scrapbooking will also be a priority, so a good mix of things to keep my mind active, which is very important.

Stay well and keep crafting!!

Butterfly Beauty Dies

Hi & welcome friends,

I was asked to design a card using the Butterfly Beauty Dies (#148536) with Night Of Navy, silver and white, so decided the double Z fold card would work well.







I cut the Night Of Navy card (#106577) 28cm x 21cm and scored on the long side at 7cm and 14 cm. The Designer Series Paper is from the Flowering Foils Specialty DSP (#152312). 2 pieces were cut 20cm x 6cm and the 3rd piece is 20 x 13cm. The size of the Whisper White card (#106549) is 23.5cm x 16cm and scored along the long side also at 7cm and 14cm. Notice that the larger piece is on the right for the base card and on the left for the Whisper White card. The butterflies were cut using the Butterfly Beauty dies and I used Night Of Navy card and Silver Foil Sheet (#132178). These were glued with the Fine-Tip Glue pen (#138309). Happy Birthday is from the Magnolia Blooms stamp set (#152729) and I stamped this with Night Of Navy ink (#147110). The circles were cut with the Layering Circles Dies (#141705) and attached to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals (#104430). The stamped butterfly is from the Beauty Abounds stamp set (#c148726) and also stamped with Night Of Navy ink.

Hope you are all doing well in these uncertain times. I think crafting will keep me sane.

Magnolia Lane Memories & More Card Pack

Welcome,

Today I wanted to show you how easy it is to make a quick and easy card with the Magnolia Lane Memories & More Card Pack (#149554). This pack includes 50 (total) double sided cards (2 each of 25 designs) in 2 different sizes, 6 - single sided printed vellum specialty cards and 4 sticker sheets which include sentiments, flowers, leaves, borders and tags.




I have combined these with the Magnolia Lane Large Specialty Memories & More Cards & Envelopes (#149487). These Kraft cards have white foil accents as well as a liner for the envelope, so these products combined make cardmaking so easy. The Memories & More cards are also great for scrapbooking pages.

The background card is 6”x4” so fits perfectly on the base card and the smaller card is 3”x4”. This card has the sentiment and the brown images printed on it. I added the other 2 leaf images which are stickers. The border along the bottom of the card is also a sticker.

Of course you could add your own stamped images or embellishments, but I just wanted to use the products provided in the pack.

If you are looking for something suitable for the males in your life, Come Sail Away Memories & More Card Pack (#149552) would be perfect. Check back tomorrow for a card using that pack.

Stay healthy and positive, and keep on crafting!!

Stampin’ Blends with Designer Series Paper

Hi again everyone,

I have another variation for colouring the Flowering Foils Specialty Designer Series Paper (#152312) from Sale-A-Bration.

The DSP was attached to the Lovely Lipstick base card (#146993). I also cut the fancy border under the sentiment with an Ornate Borders Die (#152724). The sentiment which is from the Positive Thoughts Stamp Set (#151490) was stamped with Lovely Lipstick ink (#147140) and cut with a die from the Stitched Rectangles (#148551). This was attached to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals (#104430).

The Whisper White card and the Blackberry Bliss card were cut with the Stitched So Sweetly Dies (#151690). These were attached to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals (#104430). The ribbon under the sentiment is Purple Posy 1/2” Scalloped Linen Ribbon (#149708), and I added some of the Rose Metallic Thread (#146915) near the sentiment.

I hope you are all staying well and crafting is helping you in this current situation.

Colouring Flowering Foils Specialty Designer Series Paper

Welcome friends,

Today I am colouring the Flowering Foils Specialty Designer Series Paper (#152312) from Sale-A-Bration using Stampin’ Blends.




On this beautiful paper with the small flowers I have coloured the white background with Light Seaside Spray Stampin’ Blend (#149567) and have left the flowers without colouring. This was then attached to the Seaside Spray card (#150889). I cut another piece of the Seaside Spray card using one of the borders from the Ornate Borders Dies (#152724), then turned it around and cut it a second time to make the strip. I then attached the Seaside Spray Metallic Ribbon (#150446) to this. The sentiment is from the Timeless Tropical stamp set (#c151497) and stamped with Seaside Spray ink (#150085). This Whisper White card (#106549) and the Seaside Spray card were both cut with Stitched So Sweetly dies (#151690), then attached to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals (#104430). The embellishments are Champagne Rhinestone Basic Jewels (#151193).

A lovely simple card, and even the colouring with the Stampin’ Blends is simple.
