STAMPIN’ UP! RINGS OF LOVE PAPER!

The Rings of Love Paper available for Sale-A-Bration is quite a surprise really. I have been playing a lot with it!

Sharing two cards with you today as we are running out of time!

Firstly with some scraps of paper I had left I put this card together. and just added a sentiment and embossed the Mint Macaron card mat with the Brick and Mortar 3D Embossing Folder.

The sentiment is from the Go To Greetings stamp set.

Now to my second card.

With my class this week with the Adventurous Journey Stamp Set I have been having lots of fun creating with it. I thought this print from the Rings of Love paper looked like a watery background. I really liked the effect of it. And no mess with creating a watercolour piece!

The sentiment is from the Painted Poppies Stamp set stamped on a diecut circle from the Beautiful Shapes Dies.

This week Sale-A-Bration all comes to an end and you won’t be able to get this paper again. Don’t miss it … 😦

I have shared a few cards with it recently so head back a few posts if you missed it.

To grab your bonus paper place an order over $90 AUD and you can pick that as your choice. Or there are lots of other great bonus products too.

HELLO HIPPEST HIPPOS CARD!

When I was playing with the Hippest Hippos stamps and dies a few weeks ago I thought the centre of the goggles looked liked the “old school” phones.

You know the ones many of us grew up with that had the cord hanging off and you couldn’t take your phone anywhere. Even having to talk to friends right in among the family …

Those were the days. Anyway I had to create these hippos with their phones.

I created a Half Fold Easel card for it. I had a lot of leftover bits too to put the card together. The sentiment is cut with one of the Beautiful Shapes Dies.

And just a note they are not outside right. How can you talk outside unless you have a long cord … (For some reason I put the plants on there but hey, they can be indoor plants). 🙂

This is it front on.

Side on so you can see the Easel part.

It folds flat easily to post out.

What do you think??

A Half Fold Easel Card is quite easy. Cut the right hand section off of the front of the card base. On the left hand section score it at half way. You can decorate as you like. Just have a piece on the left hand side at the bottom to help the easel part stand up.

Less than a week to get the Hippos and the dies for Sale-A-Bration. Have you got them yet? Don’t miss out on them.

If you are in Australia and still need to grab your Sale-A-Bration bonus gifts then I would love to serve you. Head to my store to order online -> HERE. Please use the Host Code: DK3ZG2DU

Have a good day,

STRIPS WITH THE SPLENDID DAY DESIGNER SERIES PAPER!

This card is a great way of showing both sides of the lovely Splendid Day Specialty Designer Series Paper. It would work well with any paper. Do you find it hard to choose which side to use sometimes??

I have also used the Go To Greetings Stamp Set for the sentiment. They really are my “go-to” sentiment set at the moment. This is punched out with the Double Oval Punch. I added some diecut leaves from the Splendid Stems Dies.

Now for the measurements to make your own. You can show off both sides of paper or it’s a great way of using up scrap pieces.

STRIPS WITH DESIGNER SERIES PAPER

Card base 21cm x 14.8cm Scored at 10.5cm

                   8 ½” x 5 ½” Scored at 4 ¼”

Fresh Freesia card mat    9.9cm x 14.2cm    4” x 5 ¼”

White card    9.5cm x 13.8cm       3 ¾” x 4 7/8”

DSP pieces @2    4.4cm x 13.2cm   Cut at 5cm

                               1 5/8” x 4 ½”  Cut at 2”

Lay out the pieces of Designer Series Paper (DSP) on to the front of the white card.  With a short piece then a long piece next to it. Then below these, a long piece with short piece next to it.  It doesn’t matter which order though.

Flip the 2 small DSP pieces over to show the other side.  Adhere these to the white card.

Then assemble the card on to the card mat and on to the card base. Add your sentiment or embellishments as you like.


Hope you get to make one yourself.

Back with another card using the gorgeous Wonderful World Designer Series Paper. I have used it with Blackberry Bliss which is a colour I don’t often use.

The sentiment is from the Go To Greetings Stamp Set.

I used the top print of the paper to fussy cut the flowers out. It is really easy to cut so don’t be put off.

But You need to really see more of these prints in store ->HERE.

WEDNESDAY’S WOW #139 – 3 WAYS TO COLOUR THE FOILS PAPER!

Wednesday’s WOW! #139 – Add colour to the Silver and Gold Foils.

You might have seen the Silver and Gold Foils Designer Series Paper available for Sale-A-Bration? Of course you can leave it as it is but why not have some fun with it and colour it. There are a number of different ways you can do that.

The Silver and Gold Foils Designer Series Paper have embossed designs on them. There are dots and stripes in Silver and in Gold. The dots or stripes will resist the ink when you add colour so you have nice shiny additions to the colour. Once you add the colour just wipe off lightly with a tissue to remove any excess ink on the foil parts.

Let me show you 3 Ways to add colour to this paper.


1. Use the Blending Brushes to add colour. Use one colour or a number of colours and brush over a piece of the paper. (bottom left)

2. Use markers to add additional coloured stripes on the striped print. Using 2 colours will add an extra pizzazz to your cards. (right).

Of course you can leave it plain as a lovely background and add extra stamped images or elements on the card. (top left)

3. Stamp directly on to the Foils with regular Classic Ink Pads. You will have the “embossed” lines or dots run through it but it adds a cool effect. (below)

Want some more ideas with colouring Foils Paper?

A few years back there was some other range of Foils Paper. I shared a few projects using them way back then. Check out the posts -> HERE and -> HERE. Or you can do a search for Springtime Foils Paper on my blog.

Below is the Silver and Gold Foils Designer Series Paper. It is a pack of 24 sheets in 6″x6″ size. 12 each in 2 patterns (stripes and dots) and in 2 colours (silver and Gold).

And bonus, it is a free choice for Sale-A-Bration with your orders over $90 AUD. (Only while supplies last).

Grab it now with your orders (or grab any of the other great Sale-A-Bration choices.

A WONDERFUL WORLD PAIR!

In last week’s Instagram Reel I shared making this card.

If you don’t follow me on Instagram already head -> HERE so you don’t miss out on more Reels and inspiration.

For this one I punched the corners of the piece of Wonderful World Paper with the Very Best Trio Punch.

The piece of Orchid Oasis card was embossed with the Bark 3D Embossing Folder.

This was the first card I made below. For the strip of Wonderful World paper I kept the edge straight. I embossed the Flirty Flamingo card with the Merry Melody 3D Embossing Folder.

For both cards the flower from the Wonderful World Stamp Set was stamped in Pear Pizzazz on the white circle. Then stamped again in Rich Razzleberry. I snipped the flower head with scissors.

The sentiment is from the Artistically Inked Stamp Set.

Which do you like better, Orchid Oasis or the Flirty Flamingo one?

The Wonderful World Designer Series Paper and the Wonderful Stamp Set is available as a Free choice with your orders over $180 AUD.

I can’t believe we are half way through Sale-A-Bration already!
