TEAM SHOEBOX SWAP – DAY 4!

OK, Today is my last sharing from our recent Team stamp day with Shoebox Swap cards.  I have a few various ones for you.

This one below is using that gorgeous Delightfully Detailed Laser Cut paper.  I have shown lots of cards using this paper recently.  For this card you don’t need much more than backing a section of the paper on to a strip of black card and adhering it to your white base card.  It makes it look so elegant don’t you think??  I think from memory the sentiment banner is a strip of white card and using the small circle punch to notch out each corner.

This next one is a fun fold.  Adhere a strip of the lovely paper, this one is the Nature’s Poem DSP, down the left hand side of the front of your card.  Punch a slit using the Classic Label Punch on the side of the card front.  You need to punch it twice to be sure that the dragonfly fits through. Punch it once near the top, then slide it down a little bit and line it up with the previous punch and punch it again.  A dragonfly from the Detailed Dragonfly Thinlits was cut from Vellum and also from Cajun Craze.

This is the inside of the card.  The sentiments are from Better Together set.  It’s a cool card.

This card uses the lovely Love What You Do set, the Share What You Love paper and the Lovely Floral Embossing Folder.

This is a cute little treat bag below.  It is very quick to make up.  This is based on Pootles bag -> HERE.

I hope you have so enjoyed these little projects from our team day.  We are getting ready for another get together in the next few weeks.  Hopefully I don’t take as long to share those with you. 😉

Hope your weekend is going awesomely.

5 WAYS WITH PAPER – #4!

Today – DAY 4 of “5 WAYS WITH PAPER”.  What have you thought so far??

Today’s card – why not feature the paper! With all the beautiful prints you can use them just as they are.

This lovely print from Nature’s Poem Designer Series Paper is so detailed with the veins of the leaves.  I decided to make a Sympathy card with this paper.  Good to always have on hand sadly.

It’s a very simple layout with a window highlighting the paper.  The leaves are from the Seasonal Layers Thinlits. I cut one from Crumb Cake and one from Vellum.  The sentiment is from the Better Together set.

Last one tomorrow.  Hope you will tune in.  I have had fun creating with the papers.  I should do more of it.  How about you?

FRESH COLOURS FOR CI17 COLOUR CHALLENGE!

I had a little play today with the Colour INKspirations Challenge (CI17).  I have missed a few rounds lately so it was good to take time out to play.  I really like to have a go at these challenges as it really extends your creativity.

The Colours for this week are: Pool Party, Lemon Lime Twist, Tempting Turquoise and Flirty Flamingo.  What fun, fresh colours!

I had in mind to use the Beachy Christmas set in the Holiday Catalogue.  I hadn’t got around to using this set yet.  And you don’t need to use this just for Christmas …

For this card I used the sketch from Freshly Made Sketches #261

I was going to watercolour the houses with just a wash but then saw the Work of Art set.  One of the larger “block” type stamps covered over it nicely.  I did do a test run on scrap card to mist the colours after I stamped but I liked it better just to leave them.

The Flirty Flamingo card mat was embossed with the Sparkle Embossing Folder.  I added a strip of the Eastern Palace DSP.  I love that Lemon Lime Twist!  The sentiment I used was from Better Together set.

The clouds were from the Lift Me Up Bundle stamped in Pool Party.  I wouldn’t have necessarily stamped them in that colour but had to add it somewhere.  I did add some sparkle with the Wink of Stella pen.  It’s a bit hard to tell though.

Now when I made this I first used the Peekaboo Peach instead of the Flirty Flamingo.  So I had to put that one aside and redo it with Flirty Flamingo. Once I had finished the card I then went back and finished this one.  I thought I would show you that one too.

I used more of the Eastern Palace DSP.  I played around with the sentiment a bit to cut angles and all kinds of things but ended up just trimming it down and adding some doily underneath.  The sentiment is from Dragonfly Dreams.

I think I like this version better.  What do you think?

Thanks for looking.  I hope your weekend has been great and you have had a chance to be creative,

FOXY CATS!

Since I have got back from Stampin’ Up! Onstage last week I have been running.  I think in circles more so but anyway… I haven’t had a lot of time to go through my photos to share with you as yet but I hope to very soon.  In the meantime I still have cards to share.

Today is a card with cats!!

These cats are made with the Fox Builder Punch.  I am not a fan of foxes so I haven’t got this punch but I used this punch on our stamping weekend.  I found this idea on Pinterest so thought I would make a card with this.   I thought it was a cute idea.

foxy-friends-cats

The cats are stamped in Crumb Cake and Early Espresso using the ‘Foxy Friends’ set. The sentiment is from the set ‘Better Together’. The leaf and the curvy spray of leaves is from the ‘Foxy Friends’ set too. A good thing with the stamps being photopolymer I could curve the spray before I inked it to match the White oval piece that I had already cut with the Oval Layering Framelits. 

The base is Sweet Sugarplum and the paper is from the Playful Palette Paper stack. Before I adhered the cute cats and the Oval sentiment piece I swirled around some Silver Thread and tied around some Sweet Sugarplum Ruched ribbon.

These cats look pretty happy don’t you think. 🙂

Have an awesome day wherever you may be.
