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

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.

Thanks for stopping by,

Jenny

GINGHAM TEA BAG TREAT HOLDER!

I had my Summer Sizzler Catalogue Launch on this weekend for the Occasions and Sale-A-Bration Catalogue.  It was a fun time sharing lots of the gorgeous new products and samples with them.

I will share some of the cards I have made over the next couple of weeks.  Today I thought I would share with you the little Treat Holders I made for everyone who came to Thank them for coming.

These cute little Treat Holders are made using the new Gingham Gala Designer Series Paper stack.  The paper is 6″x6″ (15.2cmx15.2cm) and are just the right size for these.  I made them in some of the different colours.  I took a photo of 3 of the different colour ones.  I have also used the lovely Organdy Ribbon that is available as a free choice for Sale-A-Bration. I will tell you how to make them below.

To decorate the front of them I stamped one of the butterfly stamps from Butterfly Gala set using Black Memento ink and these were then coloured with the Stampin’ Blends.  Using the Butterfly punch makes life a lot easier.  No fussy cutting them. 🙂 The sentiment is from the Well Said stamp set.  I stamped the “THANKS” on to Whisper White and punched it out with the Classic Label Punch.  I then could trim off each end. I find this a much easier way of doing it.

To make the Treat Holders

1. Take your 15.2cm x15.2cm (6″x6″) piece of paper.  I have used the Gingham Gala Designer Series Paper stack.

Line the left hand edge of the paper on the 6.7cm (2 5/8″) mark on the Envelope Punch Board.

Punch the paper and score on the score grid of the Punch Board.

2. Turn the paper 90′.  Line up the little score tab on the previous score line.  Punch and score.

Turn the paper another 90′.  Line the tab mark on the score line, punch and score.  Turn again and repeat.

3. Round the corners using the corner rounder on the punch board.  Fold on the score lines. Decide which side you want showing on the outside, place that side facing down when folding.

NB: In the photo below I hadn’t turned it over at this point.

Fold up the bottom tab.  Place adhesive on the 2 outside edges of this tab. I used Snail adhesive.  Fold in one side tab and adhere down. Before folding in the other side tab place adhesive on the inside bottom edge of this tab.  Fold over and adhere down.

Decorate as you like. To add ribbon, punch a hole in the top tab and thread through your ribbon.

This is a great size for a Tea Bag packet, chocolate, Gift card or other treat.

Enjoy.

Jenny

FARMHOUSE CHRISTMAS CARD

The card above was made for my 12 Weeks of Christmas series but, well… I ran out of weeks to share it. It’s a great opportunity to share it with you now for my Christmas wishes to you.  Made with the Farmhouse Christmas Bundle which is sadly not being carried over, I wanted to show that you can use this set without having to colour it all the time.  I stamped the house a number of times over the Crumb Cake card base.  The paper is from Under The Mistletoe DSP.  You can stamp directly on to the silver Foil but remember to use Stazon.

While this card is very simple I deliberated on it for so long in how to work the sentiment.  Maybe an hour just on that. How many different ways could I work it. Seriously why can’t I just go with it!  It worked out in the end with just a strip of Real Red Satin Ribbon to finish. Which I should have just stuck with in the beginning.  Do you have days like that?? 🙂

Thanks for visiting,

Happy Christmas.

Jenny
