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.

In Australia? Shop -> HERE.  Select your Sale-A-Bration choice when you have completed your order before checkout. 🙂  Please use the Host Code: R26WHBUN  AND THANK YOU. 🙂

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

A SIMPLE POPPY CARD!

This card was one of the Make and Takes we had for Onstage in November.  I never made any of my cards that day – but then I usually don’t.  It’s the time to chat to people and I have to say it can get a little stressful when you have to make the cards in a short amount of time.  So I usually bring them home to make.

I only managed to complete the card this week.  I changed it up a little to what it was meant to be.  That’s ok. 🙂  The card is aimed for a beginner stamper.  One who is just starting out and doesn’t have a lot of products.  It’s basic stamping with little or no colouring or any diecutting.

I added a little more background stamping with the poppies and leaves using the Painted Poppies stamp set.  These were in poppy Parade.

On a piece of white card I stamped a poppy just off the top edge of the card and then added the Happy Birthday from the Peaceful Moments stamp set.  I lightly sponged some Poppy Parade ink around the edge of the card.  I haven’t done that for a very long time.  I used to add it all the time but now I tend to leave the card clean – if I can describe it like that.

The strips of the Peaceful Poppies Designer Series Paper were adhered straight down on to the Poppy Parade card base and the white stamped piece was raised up with Dimensionals.  Before doing that I added a little piece of the Whisper White Crinkled Seam Binding Ribbon.  Of course finish with bling.

Hope you like my version of the card.  There have been a few versions of this card from those who went to Onstage.

Happy Stamping,

Jenny

SUNDAY SUITES – PEACEFUL POPPIES SUITE!

We are looking at the Peaceful Poppies Suite today for our Sunday Suites.  Since I have been sharing a little recently with the Poppies Suite and this weekend I have had a really fun Poppies class (more on that later), I thought it was a good time to share this suite.

The Peaceful Poppies Suite is an absolutely gorgeous one.  There are lots of different products in this suite with not just one, but TWO stamp and die bundles.

Let me tell you about them.

Below is the full Peaceful Poppies Suite Bundle.  All these products are available all together as one bundle ($238AUD), or you can buy them individually.

The Peaceful Poppies Suite Bundle includes:

* Painted Poppies Cling Stamp Set (10% off)
* Peaceful Moments Cling Stamp Set (10% off)
* Painted Labels Dies (10% off)
* Poppy Moments Dies (10% off)
* Peaceful Poppies Designer Series Paper
* Peaceful Poppies Sequins
* Whisper White 1/4″ (6.4 mm) Crinkled Seam Binding Ribbon
* Peaceful Poppies Elements

Product colours in this suite are: Blackberry Bliss, Calypso Coral, Crushed Curry, Flirty Flamingo, Mossy Meadow, Old Olive, Pool Party, Poppy Parade, Rich Razzleberry.

Below is the Painted Poppies Bundle.  You have the Painted Poppies stamp set and the Painted Labels Dies.  The dies have 2 great labels shapes for any sentiments.  The flower shape will cut the full flower shape, and you have the smaller leaf die for the smaller leaf in the set.

I love the swirly shape.  It’s a great one for backing your sentiments.

The second Bundle available in this suite is the Peaceful Moments Bundle which includes the stamp set and the Poppy Moments Dies.

These dies have the 2 different flower shapes with their outline which are great for layering together.  It also has 2 different leaf shapes to layer together and a couple of little flower centres.  It has a really fun background die which I will tell you more about later.

This Painted Poppies Designer Series Paper is GORGEOUS!!  Truly beautiful prints and such fun, rich colours.  These were very popular in class this weekend.  You don’t need much more on your cards when you use this paper.

The Peaceful Poppies Elements ($11.25) are a bit of a sleeper in the catalogue.  I don’t think the catalogue shows them too well.

The pack contains:

8 sheets total
* 2 sheets black die-cut elements with black foil prints: labels, banners, borders
* 2 sheets white thick cardstock die cuts with coloured prints: poppies
* 2 sheets vellum die cuts with white prints: poppies and leaves
* 2 sheets watercolour paper die cuts with clear UV prints for watercolouring: poppies and leaves

With the Printed diecut sheets you can simply pop them off the sheet and add them to your project.

On the watercolour paper sheets, the poppies and the leaves are embossed. You can give a light wash over the images with your ink and Aquapainter to give a little colour.  The images will resist the wash.  It looks cool.

What about the Whisper White Crinkled Seam Binding Ribbon shown below!  It is very light, soft ribbon.  AND don’t just leave it white.  You can easily add colour to this ribbon by running over it with the Stampin’ Blends to create a colour to match your project you are creating.

Now for some samples for you courtesy of Stampin’ Up!

These cards below show the background die.  It is very effective.  For the card on the bottom right, the die was run through acetate or very thick card.  This creates a mask. Place this on to your card and then lightly rub over it with the Texture Paste.

Why not fancy up a journal by creating the layered flowers.

Lots of inspirational projects on this hanger.  What one is your favourite?

So what do you think of the Peaceful Poppies Suite?  Get the whole suite or just one or 2 products within the suite. Either way you won’t be disappointed.

Thank You,

Hope your Sunday is great,

Jenny

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??

BEST DRESSED – LIPSTICK STREAK!

Another card for you today with the Best Dressed Suite.  This was another project I shared at Onstage last November with this suite.

The Dressed To Impress stamp set has some cute images and some really fun “wash” type images.  These washes are great to add colour to the cute images as an alternative to colouring them with the inks or the Stampin’ Blends, or you can use them as background stamping.

The stamp set is below so you get an idea.

I wanted to show a different way of using one of the longer “wash” streaks.  As you can see in the card below, use it as a nice long lipstick steak.  Make it any colour you like, BUT – Be as Bold As Your Lipstick. 🙂

For this card a piece of the Best Dressed Designer Series Paper was cut with a large Stitched Rectangles Dies and then one was cut on white card with a smaller of the rectangles.

On the Lovely Lipstick base card stamp some of the smaller flowers in the top left corner and the bottom right corner with Lovely Lipstick ink to give just a subtle background stamping.

On the white card stamp the “streak” across the bottom of the white card. I used Lovely Lipstick. Stamp your lipstick at an angle.  This one was coloured with the Smoky Slate Stampin’ Blends on the base of the lipstick.  The lipstick colour was stamped with the small circular “wash”.

Stamp the sentiment in Memento black and punch that out.  Add a few loops of the Silver Thread behind it before raising it up off the card.  Of course add some bling with the Rhinestones to finish.

Now go and streak that lipstick. 🙂

You can see this set and buy in store now -> HERE.

Don’t forget with every order with me you receive a Tutorial Bundle of 12 different projects as a little Thank you.  Plus I send out a little card and small gift to say Thanks so be sure to not mark it anonymous when you order. AND with orders over $90 you receive your choice of Free Sale-A-Bration set.  

Thanks for visiting me today.  Have a great weekend,

Jenny

SOME SPECIAL CUSTOMER THANK YOU CARDS!

I can show you these cards now.  Recently I made these Thank You cards for a special group of customers.  This group has been with me for 10 years now supporting me, encouraging me and attending my events.  I wanted to mark the special occasion.

I made a couple of different variations but using similar products.

Paper: Perennial Essence Designer Series Paper,

Card: Whisper White, Flirty Flamingo, Petal Pink, Calypso Coral, Balmy Blue.

Stamps: Butterfly Gala, Magnolia Blooms.

Inks: Balmy Blue, Granny Apple Green, Flirty Flamingo, Daffodil Delight,

Dies: Stitched Rectangles Dies, Stitched Nested Dies.

Other: Butterfly Duet Punch, Adhesive Rhinestones, Adhesive Pearls.

I wanted to tell you how I created the butterflies.  I stamped the butterflies from the Butterfly Gala stamp set on white card.  Before I punched them out I sponged over them.  Firstly with a colour in the centre and then around the outside with another colour.  The butterflies were all different colours. I punched them out with the Butterfly Duet Punch. To add some highlights I sponged around the edge of the butterfly with the colour I used on the outer edges.

I really appreciate these lovely group of ladies.  They changed the direction of my business and continue to support me.  They have become lovely friends.

Now let me just take this opportunity to thank each and everyone of you.  Thanks for all your support, your comments when you can, your pinning and Thanks for visiting my corner of Blog land.  It’s because of you I post often hoping to inspire you.  I hope I do that.  Thanks for your support.

I’m looking forward to a new year of creating and sharing.

Happy Stamping,

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
