MOUNTAIN AIR – CARD IN A BOX!

I had been playing with the Mountain Air Bundle recently. Before I move on to sharing projects with new products I thought I would share this card with you.  It’s a Card In A Box.  I love making these and I hadn’t made one in a while.

This bundle works so well with these style boxes.  You have lots of different images and can build up your scene.

To create the Card In A Box I have teamed it with the Country Club Designer Series Paper (retiring).

The sentiment is from the Peaceful Moments stamp set (carrying over).

The template for making the Card In A Box can be found on Di’s blog -> HERE.

I’m glad to see that this will be carrying over in to the new catalogue.  It gives me some more time to play with it later.

You can grab it now in store though -> HERE.

I have started playing with new products so I’m excited to be sharing some new projects with you starting next week.  EEK! New Catalogue!!!! 🙂

Have a great weekend,

Jenny

MOTHER’S GIFT BAG AND CARD!

With Mother’s Day this weekend I have a Gift Bag and Card set to share with you.

This gift bag and card is created with the Best Dressed Suite.

Best Dressed Gift Bag and Card

With all the cool images on this piece of Best Dressed Designer Series Paper I didn’t need to do a lot of stamping.

I did stamp the perfume bottle from the Dressed To Impress stamp  set and coloured it to match the paper.  The bottle was stamped with the “splodge” stamp in Daffodil Delight.  Then the top was coloured with the Smoky Slate Stampin’ Blends. 

To finish the card I added some loops off the Mint Macaron Sheer Ribbon behind the Purple Posy diecut circle. I used both of the sentiment shapes and layered them together.

For the bag diecut the bag twice in the Mint Macaron card and then diecut two from the paper.  Then trim off the sides of the paper diecut piece and adhere them on to the bag.

For the tag I cut the perfume bottle off the paper to match it all.

A sweet little gift set for any special person.

This Dressed To Impress Bundle of the stamps and dies will be carried over in to the new catalogue but buying it now as a bundle will save 10%.  The paper won’t be carried over so if you want it grab it now.

See it in my store now -> HERE.

Thanks for stopping by,

Jenny

MEERKAT TENT CARD!

I had a special request from a friend for a Housewarming card and the people LOVE Meerkats.  They have received it now so I can share this with you.

I wanted something a little different but I don’t have any “housewarming” type greetings.  I thought the Well Written Dies would work ok.

I made a Tent Card with The Gang’s All Meer stamp set from Sale-A-Bration.  Now I realise that this is a little tropical for the meerkats BUT I just thought it worked ok and kinda cute.  So just roll with it for me. 🙂

This is the front on view.

Side on View.

I have made a few versions of the tent card over the years but I have the tutorial again for the Tent card below.

The meerkats were stamped on Whisper White card and coloured with the Stampin’ Blends.  I fussy cut them out. TIP: Just leave a little white border when you fussy cut.  It’s softer on they eyes.

When I cut and scored the Old Olive card I adhered a piece of the Tropical Oasis Designer Series Paper on the front panel and diecut it with the Scallop Circle from the Layering CIrcles Dies. This cut out piece was then adhered inside the card.

The Palm tree was stamped from the Timeless Tropical Stamp set.  I shared this tip in a recent video.  But to create the different colours on the palm tree you could colour it with your Markers But I stamped 2 trees, one in Old Olive and one in Early Espresso.  Then I cut off the palm leaves of the Old Olive one and adhered it straight on top of the Early Espresso one.

The welcome was diecut from the Well Written Dies and adhered on to the front with the cute standing Meerkat.  Of course finished with a Tropical Oasis Trinkets.

TENT CARD TUTORIAL

1. Cut your base card to measure 10.5cm x 29.5cm.    (4 1/4″ x 11 5/8″)

2. Score on the long side at 2.5cm, 5cm, 7.5cm, 18.5cm. (1″, 2″, 3″, 7 1/4″).  Fold on the score lines.

3. Cut your window from the front using the die of your choice.

4. Add adhesive onto the small tab and adhere to the inside of your folded card at the back. (Just fold up the card first to work out the best place for your adhesive).  I had the tab to attach to the back of the card so you can’t see it inside the front).

5. If you wish to add a piece of card inside for stamping as an alternative, cut a piece of Whisper White 11cm x 10.5cm. (4 1/4″ x 4  5/16″).  I used a piece of white card this size for on the back of the Tent Card for writing your message on too.

Have fun creating it,

Jenny

POPPY THANK YOU TAGS!

On the weekend for my special Poppies class I made each person that came a little Thank You tag for coming.

They are just simple tags but you don’t need to do a lot with these poppies.

The top of the Whisper White tag is punched with the Delightful Tag Topper Punch with some Petal Pink Metallic Edge ribbon through the top.

After cutting the poppies,  the Petal Pink solid flower was sponged with a little Petal Pink ink and then the outline poppy in Poppy Parade was adhered over the top.  There was just a little strip of the Peaceful Poppies Designer Series Paper across the bottom.  The leaf cut in Granny Apple Green is actually the “leaf” or base for the small poppy bud but I think it works well as a little leaf.

The “splotch” stamp is from the Painted Poppies Stamp set and the Thank You from the Peaceful Moments stamp set.  

Sweet tags in no time.

I showed you all about the gorgeous Poppies products in yesterday’s Sunday Suites.  Did you check them out?

You can head to my shop now -> HERE and see them. 

If ordering just add the Host Code at checkout. R26WHBUN  Thank you kindly. 🙂

Happy Stamping,

ALL DRESSED UP BACKPACK!

Have you seen these cutie bags around the internet?  They are made with the All Dressed Up Dies from the Best Dressed Suite.  So sweet. ❤

This is one I made for my presentation at Onstage.  By changing the handles you can make it in to a backpack.

I kept it simple and didn’t add a tag on this one but it is easy to do.  You don’t need too much with this gorgeous paper from the Best Dressed Designer Series paper. 

Cut the buckle out using the die and add that to the strip before adhering the handle to the bag. To add the handle, adhere one end of the strip inside the front of the bag.  The other end, fold over the end a little and then adhere this to the back of the bag checking the position of the handle so you have a little curve happening.

A few people have commented about cutting the paper with these dies that they tend to be “cutting” rather than “scoring” on the bag.  I would suggest play around with the layers on your diecutting machine. You may need a shim on the top of your plates.  Alternatively, if you have a soft mat place that as your top cutting plate making sure the die is facing down as you don’t want to cut the mat. 🙂

Others have asked how tall these bags are. They are tiny.  It stands at the height of the Tombow multipurpose adhesive.  If fits the small notecards in which is about 7cm (3″) high.

Happy playing.

SUNDAY SUITES – BEST DRESSED SUITE!

Sunday Suites are back for 2020.  This week since I have been sharing projects with the Best Dressed Suite let’s have a closer look at the whole suite.

I think the Best Dressed Suite is a really fun one and can be quite classy too.

This is what is included in the entire Best Dressed Suite Bundle.

The Best Dressed Suite Bundle includes:

* Dressed to Impress Photopolymer Stamp Set (10% off)
* All Dressed Up Dies (10% off)
* Best Dressed 6″ x 6″ (15.2 x 15.2 cm) Designer Series Paper
* Mint Macaron 1/8″ (3.2 cm) Sheer Linen Ribbon
* Best Dressed 3″ x 3″ (7.6 x 7.6 cm) Note Cards & Envelopes
* Best Dressed Tassels

Colours used in the suite are: Blackberry Bliss, Daffodil Delight, Lovely Lipstick, Old Olive, Petal Pink, Pretty Peacock, Purple Posy, Mint Macaron.

Let’s have a closer look at the Best Dressed Designer Series Paper.  It is gorgeous.  One side has stylish images, the other side has floral prints either large or small.

One thing I learned when preparing my projects for Onstage was that the larger floral prints have been designed with white spaces around the flowers so you can easily fussy cut them to add directly to your projects.  I will share more about that on another post.

The Best Dressed Notecards and envelopes make really quick note cards to give to others.  They have a partly printed “swoosh” on the front of the card and the envelopes are printed on as well.  There are 24 in total with the cards and envelopes and they come in Daffodil Delight, Purple Posy and Petal Pink.  They are really sweet.  They are little cards measuring 3″x3″ or 7.6cm x 7.6cm.

What about some samples with these mini notecards.  These are straight from the catalogue. The notecards fit nicely inside the bag too so that gives you an idea of the size of the bag.

The All Dressed Dies are really fun.  They make the sweetest little bags.  You can change them up anyway you like.  See the samples below.  I have created a few fun bags already that I will share with you soon.

Don’t forget the Best Dressed Tassels as well.  There are 18 in total. 6 each in Petal Pink, Pretty Peacock and Whisper White.  With the White ones too you can colour them with the Stampin’ Blends or sit them in a little dish with reinker and water.

In the dies set is the long stitched die.  It’s great for the handles on your bags or I have used it as an edging but what about this fun idea.  Add the strips to the front of a card to create added texture.  This card sample is from Stampin’ Up!

So what do you think of the Best Dressed Suite?? Fun hey??

If you want to see more about them check the Youtube video out -> HERE.

You can see and shop the Best Dressed Suite in my store now -> HERE.

TEAM CHRISTMAS SWAPS!

It was the last team meeting for the year on Wednesday.  I wanted to share the swaps I received.  I have to say I didn’t get to make any swaps for this time but people were very generous in giving me one.

Firstly, this tag set is from Bonnie.  She made a cute little holder for the 6 tags.  There were lots of different stamp sets used to create these tags.

Christmas treats and a tag.  I liked the way Barbara made the tag using the Christmas Gleaming stamp set.  They are all lovely.  I am sorry I don’t have any directions for the little chocolate box.  The window is cut using the Stitched Rectangles  dies though.  It is really sweet.

Then an origami ornament from Vanessa.  I have seen these a few times recently.  I have wanted to make one but as yet haven’t had a chance.

You can see how to make them in this Youtube link -> HERE.

It might be too late for you with these for this Christmas but be sure to PIN them or save the ones you like ready for your creating next year.

Thanks for visiting me,

Have a great weekend,

Jenny

WEDNESDAY’S WOW! #91 – CUTE APRON GIFT BOX!

Today’s Wednesday’s WOW!#91 I have a special project for you.  It’s an apron gift box. 

I shared this project at my Onstage presentation back in November.  I was honoured to present the Best Dressed Bundle in Sydney.  I will be sharing other projects with this bundle in the coming weeks but thought you might like to see this project.

It might be fun to make up a little gift box for someone.  If you are a Demonstrator it might be great as you start planning your Catalogue Launches in January.  I have made it in to a little Stampin’ Up! apron which is quite a novelty but you could use other card or paper and make a really pretty box.  I am sharing the template and the details below.

So many people loved this cute little bag at Onstage and also when I have shared it on some Facebook groups I am on.  Now here it is for you.

This is made with the All Dressed Up Dies.

Cut one bag front from black card.  Trim the side off the diecut bag and also the bottom tab so you are left with an apron shape.  Also cut 2 of the stitched strips from black card to use as the straps.

Here is the back of the bag.  I created a little box so you can fill it with small treats  It’s a very simple box.  I will share the template below.  The straps are attached at the top of the apron, crossed over and attached inside of the box at the back.

BOX TEMPLATE

Below is the template to create the box.  Cut your card 10.5cm x 12cm (4 1/8″x 4 3/4″).

Score on the short side at 4cm, 6.5cm (1 1/2″, 2 5/8″). Score on the long side at 2.5cm, 9.5cm (1″, 3 3/4″).

Cut up on the tabs on the short sides.  Fold on all the score lines.

Add adhesive to the outside of the small centre tabs on the short side.  Fold up to form a box.  Add more adhesive on the tabs as needed.  Adhere all together.

Place adhesive on the back of one side of the box.  Line up the bottom edge of the box with the bottom edge of the apron at the back to be sure it is straight. Adhere the straps on the apron and box.

I cut the small stitched sentiment shape to create the apron at the front and added a small logo from the Follow Your Art Washi Tape.

I hope you like the cute box/bag.  It’s a lot of fun to create.

This will be the last Wednesday’s WOW! for 2019.  We will have a couple of week’s break over Christmas and New Year and be back in 2020.  I look forward to sharing more with you in the new year.

If you have any suggestions of what you would like to see for future Wednesday’s WOW! then drop me a comment.

Happy creating,

Jenny

SNOW GLOBE SEAHORSE!

You have probably seen the Still Scenes stamps and the Snowglobe Scenes dies in the Holiday Catalogue along with the Snowglobe Shaker Domes.  These make fun Christmas cards and we had a great time using them in a class recently.  You can use these products not just at Christmas time.  I was looking around on Pinterest and found some fun ideas using other occasions stamps.

For this one I used the Seaside Notions stamp set to make a fun snowglobe.

To make this I diecut the circular shape with the die in the set on the white card then embossed it with the Swirls and Curls Embossing Folder.  I used a small piece of white card and traced the circular shape on to the white card in pencil so I could see the area to stamp on to.  Then adhere one of the Shaker domes in to the embossed white card from behind.

The images were stamped on the scrap white card in Memento and coloured with the Stampin’ Blends.

To assemble the card the stamped white piece was adhered on to the Seaside Spray Card mat.  Then carefully add a little glitter. I used the Ice Stampin’ Glitter and also some Snowflake Sequins. Remove the backing off the Snowglobe Shaker Dome and carefully position it on to the Seaside Spray card mat.  Then you can adhere the whole piece on to the White card mat.

To finish stamp the base in Smoky Slate and cut that with the die and raise that up off the card with Dimensionals.  Stamp the sentiment from the set on to scrap white card and cut this with the Ornate Frames Dies and also cut one in the Silver Glimmer Paper.  Cut the silver one in half and adhere that behind the white one to off-set it . Adhere that on to the card and add a bow from the Seaside Spray Metallic Ribbon. 

The Still Scenes Bundle will be carried over But as individual stamps and dies.  If you buy them now as a bundle you will save 10%.  See them -> HERE in my store. 

Thanks for visiting me today,

Happy Stamping,

Jenny
