GORGEOUS GRAPE AND LEMON LIME TWIST – WHAT A COMBINATION!

I have been using the Wishing You Well set  lately and it is one we used at my Holiday Catalogue Launch last weekend.  I made a few samples which I will show you over the next few days.

When making these cards I discovered a new Colour combination which is becoming a favourite. I have seen these 2 colours paired together quite a bit over the internet recently and I just had to try it myself.  How bright and fresh are these 2 colours, Lemon Lime Twist and Gorgeous Grape.

The Gorgeous Grape card is embossed with the Tin Tile Embossing Folder (which I think I adhered wrong again!).  This Wishing You Well set is one of the Distinktive style sets.  This means it gives different opacities to the stamped image creating depth to your image.  It gives a very effective result without too much stamping.

I simply stamped the leafy stem once with the Lemon Lime Twist onto white card.  This was then cut with one of the Layering Oval Framelits.  I could have layered the oval on to a different piece of card but instead I sponged around the edge of the oval.  The sentiment was stamped on Lemon Lime Twist card and cut with a Framelit from the Farmhouse Framelits Dies.  I wrapped some Silver Metallic Edge Ribbon around the Gorgeous Grape card before assembling it to the base card.

It’s a quick card to put together.  Watch for more cards with this combination.  Why not try it yourself??

This is the Wishing You Well set if you haven’t noticed it in the Holiday Catalogue.  For $33 AUS for clear mount it is pretty good value and is a great set for any occasion, Thinking of you cards, sympathy, birthday and Christmas.  It covers all bases I think. 🙂

Have a great day,

Jenny

DETAILED DEER GLIMMER!

I have another card using the Detailed Deer Thinlits.  This card was another from out Shoebox Swap in our Team Stamp Day a few weeks ago.

This card was created and shared to us by Vanessa Webb.  Isn’t it an elegant one??

Detailed Deer Glimmer

The sentiment is from the Merry Christmas To All Bundle.  What about those Galvanised Buttons?  They have a country/rustic feel. The red trim on his neck is from the Suite Season Specialty Washi Tape.  

I haven’t paid too much attention to the Black Glittered Organdy Ribbon which you can find on page 49 of the Holiday Catalogue. We don’t create for Halloween or Thanksgiving here so we tend not to focus on the later half of the catalogue.  This ribbon is really lovely though.  It is so soft – and very sparkly.  It works well for an elegant Christmas card too.  I may have actually bought some since making this card.  It is one of the ribbons in my Ribbon Share too. I just had to add it. (You can head back a few posts to see about that or you can email me to join in at jghayward@yahoo.com)

The background on this card is Merry Merlot cardstock that has been embossed with the Tin Tile Embossing Folder.  I rubbed over the card very lightly with some White Shimmer Paint with a Sponge Dauber.  It is just a subtle effect.  A scalloped Vellum Oval was adhered under the Reindeer too to finish.

Hope you like it.  Thanks for visiting me.  I have people from all over the world visiting me here.  It’s so lovely that the internet can join us together in our love of crafting.  Why not say Hello in a comment and let me know where you are visiting from.

FOLD FLAT CHRISTMAS CARD WITH DETAILED DEER!

Today’s card is one we made at our Team Stamp Day a few weeks back.  I am just getting to show you now.  This card has a few different names but I call it the Fold Flat card.

This is the front view.

Fold Flat _ Front view

This is it side on.  It can fold flat to be able to send it in an envelope.

Fold Front _ side view

With the paper, the check pattern one on the front is from the Festive Farmhouse Designer Series Paper from the Holiday Catalogue.  The “bauble” one is from the Under The Mistletoe Designer Series Paper from the Annual Catalogue.  The Detailed Deer Thinlits are cut from the Gold Glimmer Paper, Gold Foil and Sparkle Glimmer Paper. The sentiment is from the Flourish Filigree.

I can’t remember now who shared this card for our Shoebox Swap at the Team Stamp Day.  I am not sure where she got the tutorial to make this one but I have made them before and shared the tutorial for it on my blog some time ago.

Fold Flat Card Tutorial in Large and standard size: Head -> HERE.

I hope you like them.  They have been popular on my blog since I orginally posted it so now you have another version.

Thanks for stopping by.  Have a great weekend,

WEDNESDAY’S WOW! #39 – TAKE YOUR PICK TOOL!

It’s Wednesday! And we have another edition of Wednesday’s WOW! #39 for you today I thought it would be good to check out this new little gadget in the catalogue – The Take your Pick Tool.  I keep calling it the Pick It tool because I can never remember the name. LOL!

This neat little Multi-purpose pick-up tool makes picking up sequins and other smaller embellishments so much easier.  It contains putty in the end and this is used to pick up the item and place it on your project.  BUT, there is more to this tool.  It has some handy-dandy little tool attachments to use in other areas of your creating.  Check out the video to see.

Pretty clever hey!  What about those neat little attachments?  You can get replacement putty too when you are out of it.

This Take Your Pick tool can be found on p30 of the Holiday catalogue OR you can see it in my store now -> HERE – and throw one in with your next order.

If you choose to order through me this week please use the HOST CODE: ME4VSE3W     I appreciate your orders and I usually send a little Thanks out your way so please be sure not to mark your details as ‘anonymous’ to the order otherwise I won’t know where to send a gift to you.

SO SANTA MOPED!

I shared some cards yesterday using the So Santa set for a Blog Hop.  Did you see them?  Jump back a post to check them out if you missed them.

Today I have another card for you using the So Santa set.  I love the cool Santa on the Moped.

I coloured this image with the Watercolor Pencils.   I looped around some Silver Thread onto the back of the stamped piece.  This piece was adhered on to a piece of the All Is Bright Designer Series Paper and then adhered to a Real Red Card base.

The sentiment was stamped on black card in Versamark and heat embossed with White Embossing Powder.  To finish the card I added a Real Red Rhinestone.

Do you like this cool dude?  It’s such a fun set.

This set is available in the 2018 Holiday Catalogue. You can see it and order it in my store now -> HERE. Please use the Host Code: ME4VSE3W   or order directly to me (Australian residents only).

ESAD 2018 HOLIDAY CATALOGUE BLOG HOP!

 

Welcome to the ESAD 2018 Holiday Catalogue Blog Hop.  It’s nice to have you stop by.  I am sure you will see lots of gorgeous projects along the hop with the lovely new products from the new Holiday Catalogue.

Firstly though, ESAD is a great group of Demonstrators from Australia and New Zealand and we love sharing with you regularly.

 

You would have come from Rachael’s blog HERE or you are starting from this blog.  You can just hop from one post to the other though in the links shown in each post and see the projects.

For my projects today I have used the very cute So Santa set.  I love that we have some “summery” Christmas sets because in Australia we don’t have snow and snowmen at Christmas time.

These are the 2 cards I have made.

Don’t you love the cool Santa dude in his boardies.  (yes, that’s Aussie for Board shorts).  They were both coloured with the Stampin’ Blends.  I kept the layout the same for both and just changed them slightly.  Both the sentiments are from the So Santa set.  The paper is from the Under The Mistletoe Designer Series Paper from the Annual Catalogue.  Of course you could use any paper.  I just flagged the end of the pieces.  They were adhered to a white card mat that I had embossed with the Softly Falling Embossing Folder. 

One of the images I cut with the Layering Squares Framelits and I cut a Silver Glimmer Paper scallop square to go behind it.  The other was cut with the Layering Circles Framelits with a scallop circle behind it.

Hope you like these Santas??

ANOTHER FARMHOUSE CHRISTMAS TRUCK!

Yesterday I shared a card I made with the truck in the Farmhouse Christmas set.  I have another one to show you today.

Yesterday’s truck was coloured with the Watercolor Pencils.  This one I have coloured it with the Stampin’ Write Markers because I didn’t have the Real Red Blends at the time and I wanted it red. I have used the same Designer Series Paper as the previous card which is from the Under The Mistletoe pack and I added a strip of Copper Foil under the stamped piece. A red card mat was embossed with the new Tin Tile Embossing Folder.  It is a lovely folder.  I have to say, when I was assembling the card I accidentally put the adhesive on the front of the embossed piece and so stuck it down with the other side showing.  I don’t think it matters too much but it is different.

The sentiment is from one in the Farmhouse Christmas set and cut with the stitched rectangle in the Farmhouse Framelits. You don’t need to do too much with it but I did add some loops of Copper Thread behind it.

Hope you like this one?  Thanks for visiting.  I hope your weekend is going along great.
