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

WEDNESDAY’S WOW! #94- MASKING WITH THE GANG’S ALL MEER!

Wednesday’s WOW! #94 – Let’s look at these cute little meerkats in the The Gang’s All Meer set available for Sale-A-Bration.  You have just got to love the sweet smiles don’t you?? 🙂

This set is great for fun birthday cards whether it’s just from you or from a whole group.  They are very easy to colour with any of your colour mediums whether it is the inkpads, watercolour pencils or Stampin’ Blends.  It has some other fun elements in the set with the little party hat for those meerkats or the cactus, or even a cute gecko that can join in the party.

See the stamp set in action in this video and particularly the great way of using this set with the masking technique.  It’s so easy and you can have a card full of these cute critters.

Below is the card with the masked Meerkats so you can get a better view of it.  Stamp as many meerkats as you like. You could use any other image you have using this same technique.

Here are some other samples Brian shared in this video so you can have a closer look.

 

Now you can have these cute meerkats yourself.

Choose this for your Free choice with orders over $90 AUD (or choose any other of the options) as your Free Sale-A-Bration choice.  Check it out in store-> HERE.

Have a great day,

INSPIRED POWER OF HOPE!

The other day I pulled out the Power of Hope Bundle with the stamp set and the 3D Stone Embossing Folder.  I wanted to be a little “arty”with it.  I don’t know why it was 40’C here!  I had already made one card with the bundle (which I shall show you later), and wanted to create more.  In between running in to the study to stand in front of the air conditioning to cool off a little and then running back to the Dining room to stamp and create away.  It was way too hot to work in my craft room even with the fan on.  Anyway, I was surprised what I came up with.  Thought I would share it with you today.

Before I started the card I did a little searching on Pinterest for Japanese art.  There were some beautiful images I must say but I chose this one to work with for inspiration.

This was my finished card.  Not exactly the same but that’s ok.  Sometimes you use images as a springboard for your creating.

I used Shimmery White card to take the watercolouring and just added a light wash with the Aquapainter and Granny Apple Green ink pad.  Leaving it to dry, which didn’t take too long in the heat I then stamped the images in Memento Black ink.  They were coloured with the Stampin’ Blends.  Afterwards I added a little more wash of the Granny Apple Green to the outer edges of the card and a little Smoky Slate under the building.  If you do this be very careful not to touch the stamped images or the black ink will run.

The stamped piece was cut with one of the Stitched Rectangles Dies and layered on to Poppy Parade card mat.  I had run that piece through with the Stone 3D Embossing Folder although it is hard to see that. The sentiment was stamped on to a piece of Poppy Parade card and I flagged the end with scissors.  I added a piece of Gold Foil Sheet too and flagged the end of that piece.

The tassel is one of the Best Dressed Tassels.  To colour the ends I masked off the top half of the tassel with some scrap paper and coloured over the ends with the Dark Poppy Parade Stampin’ Blends.  Colour one side and turn it over, mask the area again and colour the other side.  You may want to check and touch up any white parts. The tassel was tied on with the White Baker’s Twine.

It’s a little bit arty for me but I had enjoyed creating it.

The Power of Hope is a beautiful bundle that is available as a Free choice for Sale-A-Bration with orders over $180 AUD.  I think it is totally worth it so be sure to grab that with your next order.

Have a great weekend.  I hope there is some creating in store for you.

ESAD 2020 MINI CATALOGUE AND SALE-A-BRATION BLOG HOP!

Time for another ESAD Blog Hop.  This time we are sharing projects from the new 2020 Mini Catalogue and Sale-A-Bration.  I can’t wait to see what everyone has created.  You might have come from Cathy’s Blog -> HERE or starting from this blog.  The full list of participants will be below.

Firstly with the Blog Hop.  What is ESAD anyway??  

Now for my project.  It’s a very hard decision to work out what you are going to use with these Blog Hops.  There are so many new and exciting products.  What’s a person to do?? 🙂  In the end I chose to use the new So Sentimental Bundle because I love the Stitched So Sweetly Dies.  I think many people will love them.  I have made a few projects with them recently but today I have this one to share with you.

I created a card and a little treat holder with the Kraft Pillow boxes.

With the card you don’t need too much with the gorgeous Peaceful Poppies Designer Series Paper.  Add a piece of this to a Granny Apple Green card mat and add this to the Poppy Parade card base.  The Granny Apple Green is not a colour that is featured in the paper but I think it gives it a little POP against the Poppy Parade colour.

The sentiment from the So Sentimental stamp set was stamped on white and cut with one of the label shapes in the Stitched So Sweetly Dies set.  This was layered on to a piece of Granny Apple Green cut with one of the other label die shapes.  It’s hard to tell but I embossed the green card with the Pinewood Planks 3D Embossing Folder to give it some texture.

I tied around some Granny Apple Green Crinkled Seam Binding Ribbon.

Wait, what?? Granny Apple Green Crinkled Seam Binding Ribbon.  Where is that in the catalogue??

It’s actually the Whisper White Crinkled Seam Binding Ribbon on p 25 of the 2020 Mini Catalogue.  You can create any colour ribbon you like with the Stampin’ Blends.

Check it out below.  Just run along the ribbon with the Stampin’ Blends Marker. It dries quickly and ready to use on your projects.

Now for the Treat Holder.

Assemble the Kraft Pillow Box. Then wrap a strip of the Peaceful Poppies Designer Series Paper around the Pillow Box.  I wrapped around some more ribbon I had coloured around the box too.

The label for this box was using a different stamp in the So Sentimental stamp set and cut with different dies in the Stitched So Sweetly dies.  The Granny Apple Green card was embossed with the Pinewood Planks 3D Embossing Folder as well.

If you haven’t noticed the So Sentimental Bundle you can find it on p 20 of the Mini Catalogue. It has the different label shapes and Stitched Scalloped Rectangle dies of varying sizes. Great for layering together.  Available for $56 AUD.

A FLIRTY CUPCAKE!

A couple of months ago I shared a project with the Hello Cupcake Sale-A-Bration set. You can see that post -> HERE. You can see it below too. It was an angled piece of the Mango Melody from the Brights paper stack.   BUT I have been amazed how popular it has been on Pinterest especially since I realised I hadn’t pinned it yet!

This is the Mango Melody one.

I loved the card too and since I had some more angled scraps I made up another version.  This time in Flirty Flamingo.  The angle pieces were left over from when I made a banner.

This version is just a little different in that I cut the cupcake from a Stitched Circle rather than the oval and stamped the flowers in the background white card before I embossed it with the Subtle Embossing Folder although that is a little hard to see.

These are lovely summery colours don’t you think?

One 2 days left to get your Hello Cupcake set during Sale-A-Bration.  You don’t want to miss out on them.  You can purchase the Call Me Cupcake Framelits also for $47 AUS.

Grab them -> HERE in my store. When your order is over $90 then choose the Hello Cupcake set or any of the other Sale-A-Bration choices.

BOTANICAL BUTTERFLIES PAPER WEEK – SPOTLIGHTING!

I have been sharing projects all week with the Botanical Butterflies Designer Series Paper that is available as a free choice for Sale-A-Bration.  Of course you could use the ideas for any paper because we need to #usethatpaper  I love this paper though which is why I am featuring it.

For this card I used one of the black and white prints in the pack and created a card with the Spotlight technique.  The idea with this technique is you take a small section of the paper/image and “highlight” an area.  

To do this I cut a circle from the piece of paper and coloured just that section with the Stampin’ Blends.  Then layered it on a diecut scallop circle and raised it up off the card.  It’s great as you don’t have to colour the whole piece of paper in.  Great for the “colouring challenged” 😉  I find too it’s not as overwhelming with a small area.

I hope you have liked all the projects I have shared this week.  What has been your favourite?

Tomorrow I actually have a bonus project so be sure to stop by.  If you haven’t already, subscribe to my blog. Click on the tab in the right column.  Then you will get an update each time I post.

Thanks for visiting me,
