WEDNESDAY’S WOW #56 – MASKING FROGS!

I have a fun card for you today for Wednesday’s WOW! #56.   I want to show you how to make this cute card with the So Hoppy Together set using the masking technique.

For the card I have used Lemon Lime Twist base with the Gingham Gala paper stack.  The frogs were stamped in Black Memento ink and coloured with the Granny Apple Green Stampin’ Blends.

Do you want to know how I stamped the frogs?? I used the masking technique.  Let me show you how it is done.

MASKING TECHNIQUE WITH THE FROG

You can use this technique with any stamps.  The idea is to create a mask on a piece of sticky note paper.

1. First stamp your image on to a piece of sticky note being sure to stamp where the sticky part is underneath.  Fussy cut around this image.

2. Stamp your image again onto your white card towards the left hand side of your card in the position you would like it to be.  Place your “mask” piece that you had created in Step 1 directly on to that stamped image.

3.  Stamp your image again to the right next to your stamped and masked image where you would like it to be.  See the photo below if you are unsure.

4. Remove your mask and place it over the 2nd stamped image to mask this one.  Stamp your image again to the right of this.  See the photo below.

I hope this helps you.  What stamps could you use for this fun technique??

Don’t forget to grab your So Hoppy Together set Free with orders over $90 during Sale-A-Bration.  Or you could choose another option.  There is so many lovely products to choose from and who doesn’t like free. 🙂 🙂 🙂

FROGGY WINDOW!

It’s all about the frogs this week.  The Frogs in the Sale-A-Bration So Hoppy Together set.  They are cute little characters.

I had this idea in my head using the Rectangle Stitched Framelits to create a window for the cute little froggy on his unicycle.

A window was diecut in the Grapefruit Grove card base using one of the Rectangle Stitched Framelits and some of the little flies were stamped around the edge.  The sentiment is from the Amazing Life stamp set and punched with the Classic Label Punch.

On a piece of Shimmery White card I stamped the unicycle froggy.  JUST A TIP: Place the Shimmery White card inside the Grapefruit Grove card so you can see through the window to position where to stamp. The frog was stamped and then coloured with Watercolour Pencils and the Aquapainter. On a scrap piece of Shimmery White I stamped and coloured the little butterfly and then fussy cut it.  No Framelits for this – YET!! 😉  I added some sparkle with the Wink of Stella.  It is hard to see it though.

Watch out for more frogs this week.

Have a great week.

BIRTHDAY CHEER WITH THE STAMPIN’ BLENDS!

I have another card for you using the Birthday Cheer Bundle.  This was another card we made at class last week.

Some tips to make your own.

Firstly, cut the White card piece with the Rectangle Stitched Framelits die before you stamp. Then you know where to stamp your images.

The images need to be stamped in Memento Black ink so it can be coloured with the Stampin’ Blends.  The smaller sentiment is stamped on  a strip of Mint Macaron.  Rather than flag the ends of the strip or punch it with a Banner punch or a die I decided to keep it straight and wrap some of the Nature’s Twine around it.

On the Rich Razzleberry card mat first stamp your images in Razzleberry ink on the card and then run it through the Big Shot with the Subtle Embossing Folder.  It adds just a little texture to the card.  I really love this folder for creating the light texture. I think it gets missed in the catalogue.

The Birthday Cheer Bundle and the Subtle Embossing Folder are now available in my store now -> HERE.  Please use the Host Code: Q6XB6QR6  OR you can contact me directly.

Thanks for your order.  I appreciate each and every one of them.  Be sure not to mark your order anonymous or I won’t be able to send you out  your small gift.

Thanks for visiting.  I am off this weekend to the huge Craft Alive show. I am holding a booth there with 3 other wonderful demonstrator friends. It has been months  and months of planning and work.  I am exhausted already to be honest but I hope it goes well.

I will tell you more about it next week.

Have a great weekend,

Jenny

WEDNESDAY’S WOW! #55 – TIPS WITH THE FLORENTINE FILIGREE BUNDLE!

For Wednesday’s WOW! #55 today I thought I would look at the Florentine Filigree Bundle in the 2019 Occasions Catalogue.  I have been fascinated with it every time I see it in the catalogue.

The Florentine Filigree Thinlits die is quite fancy and the Florentine Filigree stamp set has a number of different medallion style stamps.

When I looked at the samples though I was quite fascinated with them.  On the one on the left those flourish style images were stamped in the little gaps in the diecut .  How can you get them so lined up and so neat?

The smaller card on the right looked like it had Texture Paste used with the diecut.

I came across a video with some great tips and it shows you how to easily create these cards.  I thought you might like to see the video.

Here are you are below.

What do you think? Are you going to add this bundle to your wish list now? It’s a gorgeous one isn’t it.

You can shop for this in my store now -> HERE. Please use the Host Code: Q6XB6QR6  It is $69.25 AUS 

Add a little more to bump your order up to over $90 and you can choose a Sale-A-Bration item too AS WELL as receive my Tutorial Bundle for 10 exclusive projects.

BIRTHDAY CHEER EASEL CARD!

I held a Birthday Cheer class on the weekend.  It was showcasing the great Birthday Cheer Bundle from the Occasions Catalogue and making some fun cards with it.  I don’t often share my class cards with you but I thought I would share with you about this.

One of the cards I made was an Easel card.  This card was inspired by one I saw on Pinterest.

This first card was the card I made to share at the class. Everyone thought it was nice.  It was using the gorgeous Grapefruit Grove Foil Sheets from Sale-A-Bration. (On a side note did you know that this foil is nearly sold out?? You might want to grab this as your next free choice for Sale-A-Bration). It is so shiny.

The single cupcake is stamped in Stazon and watercoloured with the inkpads. There is a die to cut it too.

The Easel card is very easy to make.

To make one: Take a standard sheet of card. Cut it in half vertically. Take one of those halves and score it in half and then score one of those sections in half again.  Then fold up to create an easel.

With any type of Easel card you need something on the base as a stopper to hold up the Easel.  For this one I used the Oval sentiment piece.

While I made this card and used this for the class I had a different idea in my head but it wasn’t working before the class.

During the class when I was demonstrating this I played around with it and created this version below.  Everyone loved this idea even more and made this one instead for their card.  So I thought you might like to see it then.

I created the Easel card the same with the cutting and scoring.  This time though I rearranged the pieces.  So simple really but so much more effective.  Adhere your diecut cupcake border behind the Mint Marcaron card piece.  For the stopper on this I used the cupcake.

Doesn’t that create a bit more of a WOW??

Why not create your own.

BOKEH BEAUTY ABOUNDS!

I shared a pair of cards recently using the Beauty Abounds set.  (If you missed them you can see them -> HERE)

I realised I hadn’t come back and shared another pair of cards I made with this set. I needed to make some more quick cards up.

Here they are for you.

Both are similar in design in Gorgeous Grape and Mango Melody.  The Butterflies are coloured with the Stampin’ Blends.  There isn’t a Gorgeous Grape Blends but I used the Highland Heather which works just as well.  You can’t see it but I added some Wink of Stella on the butterflies to make them sparkle.

I am really loving the Black/Silver Striped Metallic Ribbon.  It works with so many different colours and projects.

The “You are Amazing” sentiment comes from the Amazing Life set.  The “hello” from the Beauty Abounds set.

These cards were sent out to some special people.

Thanks for stopping by.

WEDNESDAY’S WOW! #54 – EXTENDING THE LARGE RECTANGLE STITCHED FRAMELIT!

If you are using the Standard Metric card bases you might be facing a problem. Today for Wednesday’s WOW! #54 I want to solve that problem for you.  I have to say this is not my original idea. I think I saw it on a Facebook group I am on but not sure where or who by now.  Perhaps you haven’t seen it though so I thought I would share it with you.

The metric size card bases are just slightly different to the US size so the largest Rectangle Stitched Framelits doesn’t sit quite right for some people. It’s not evenly spaced around each side when you cut the card mat.  To some that doesn’t matter but you might like the even space.  Here is a solution for you.

EXTENDING THE RECTANGLE STITCHED FRAMELITS

Cut your card with the Largest Rectangle Stitched Framelit.  On your card piece, cut off a section at the bottom.  This could be any amount you like to work with your card design.  I cut this one at about 3 1/2 cm.

Once you have stamped your piece of card how you like, adhere that to the card base. Add a strip of card (or even wide ribbon) across the join of the card.  The card strip could be where you stamp your sentiment. Nobody would even know there is a gap there. 🙂

Here is a Pinterest graphic that you can PIN for your later use.
