POWER OF HOPE SWAP CARD!

I can now share you my card I created for our recent Team Shoebox Swap.  I have shared the other cards recently.  This card was also the card I created for a group swap I was in.

I have used the Power of Hope stamp set and the 3D Stone Embossing Folder.

The black card was embossed with the embossing folder and you can’t tell in the photo but I swiped over the Versamark inkpad over the raised embossed parts on the card and it gave a little shine.

The Petal Pink card was stamped with the tree from the Power of Hope stamp set and the “Dots” were from the Beauty Abounds set.

The lady she was stamped in Memento and coloured with the Rich Razzleberry, Petal Pink and Black Stampin’ Blends.  The white card was cut with the largest die from the Stitched So Sweetly dies.  The sentiment was a bit bare just in white so I also cut a small piece of Gold Foil both diecut with the small rectangle from Stitched Rectangles Dies.  I finished the card off with a little of the Petal Pink Metallic Edged ribbon.

Hope you like it.  I have made this card quite a few times now.

This Power of Hope set is available Free as a Bundle with the Embossing Folder for Sale-A-Bration with orders over $180 AUD.  I hope you be sure to get your set before the end of March.  I think it’s a beautiful set and just a little different to others we have.

Have a great day,

Jenny

WEDNESDAY’S WOW! #61 – BOTANICAL BUTTERFLIES GIFT BAG!

Wednesday’s WOW! #61.  I have something special today.  I hope you like it.  I am featuring the Botanical Butterflies Designer Series Paper all week.  Of course you can use any paper for these projects but how pretty is this paper – and bonus because it is free!

Today I want to show you this cutie Butterfly bag.  I have the tutorial below for you.

For the cute tag above I punched a butterfly from a scrap piece of the paper using the Butterfly Duet Punch. I used the Detailed Trio Punch on the white tag. The sentiment is from Beauty Abounds.

Here is the side view.

This is such an easy Gift Bag to make and it only uses 1/2 sheet of the Designer Series Paper.  You can make a few in no time.

BUTTERFLY GIFT BAG

METRIC MEASUREMENTS:

30.5cm x 15cm.

Score on the long side at 12cm, 14.5cm, 26.5cm and 29cm.

Score on the short side at 2.5cm and 12.5cm.

 

IMPERIAL MEASUREMENTS:

12” x 6”.

Score on the long side at 4 ¾”, 5 ¾”, 10 ½”, and 11 ½”

Score on the short side at 1” and 5”.

 

With the paper in landscape orientation, cut up on the scored lines along the bottom up to the score line.  Angle the cuts if you prefer so the tabs will sit better when they are folded up.

Fold on all the score lines.  On the top score lines fold the paper forward to show the other side of the paper.  Adhere this down on to the front.  See the photo to show it clearer.

Place adhesive on the narrow side tab and fold the paper to form a box shape.  Adhere this narrow tab to join the other side.  Place adhesive to the bottom small tabs.  Fold up and then adhere the long tabs at the bottom to form the box.

HANDLES:

Card strip – 2 @ 1.2cm x 14.8cm.

2 @ ½” x 6”

For the handles: Firstly, take a strip and run it up and down on the edge of the table.  This helps curve the card and breaks down the tissue a little.

Place adhesive on each end of one strip, Position one end inside the bag at the top.  Gently curve the strip and adhere the other end to the inside of the bag.  Repeat the same for the second strip on the other side.

Have fun creating them,

Jenny

FAB FRIDAY #145 WITH BOTANICAL BUTTERFLIES PAPER!

Continuing with the Botanical Butterflies Designer Series Paper series for this week.  I have another cute card with this gorgeous paper.

How pretty are these butterflies?  You don’t need much to put together a card when you have paper like this.  I went for the colourful butterflies print for this card.  The black and white diagonal stripe paper at the sides are the reverse of this print.  I simply cut 2 strips to run along the edge of some Lemon, Lime Twist card and then adhered them both to the back of the paper piece.

To put the card together I used a card sketch from Fab Friday #145.  You can see that sketch -> HERE.

Watch out for another project tomorrow – and it’s our Wednesday’s WOW! project so be sure to stop by.

BOKEH BEAUTY ABOUNDS!

I shared a pair of cards recently using the Beauty Abounds set.  (If you missed them you can see them -> HERE)

I realised I hadn’t come back and shared another pair of cards I made with this set. I needed to make some more quick cards up.

Here they are for you.

Both are similar in design in Gorgeous Grape and Mango Melody.  The Butterflies are coloured with the Stampin’ Blends.  There isn’t a Gorgeous Grape Blends but I used the Highland Heather which works just as well.  You can’t see it but I added some Wink of Stella on the butterflies to make them sparkle.

I am really loving the Black/Silver Striped Metallic Ribbon.  It works with so many different colours and projects.

The “You are Amazing” sentiment comes from the Amazing Life set.  The “hello” from the Beauty Abounds set.

These cards were sent out to some special people.

Thanks for stopping by.

Jenny.

SIMPLE BEAUTY ABOUNDS PAIR!

Stampin’ Up! is all about simple stamping at the moment.  I find that a bit hard but I needed to make some quick cards the other day so I went with some simple stamping.

This Beauty Abounds set is a lovely one.  I love the Bokeh style dots.  You can create some fun, whimsical cards with this.

Colours are Flirty Flamingo, Granny Apple Green and Memento Black.  I stamped a butterfly on scrap white and coloured it with the Flirty Flamingo Stampin’ Blends then fussy cut it out.

You could do a lot with this set.  I have seen some lovely samples online so I need a little more play with it I think. 🙂

It is available as a Bundle with the gorgeous Butterfly Beauty Thinlits for $97.  You can buy the stamps alone for $40.

Available in my store now -> HERE.
