SOME MORE OH! SO ECLECTIC! YES IN BERRY BURST AGAIN. :)

These cards I wanted to share with you today are using Oh! So Eclectic and well, I have used Berry Burst again.  I will use a different colour soon I promise.  But it is such a lovely colour. 🙂

I held an event last Saturday with a group of ladies who mostly had never stamped before.  This first card I demonstrated to them to show the Big Shot.  They were so impressed – no scissors required!!

This card was inspired by one on Pinterest.  I love the Diamond pattern you can diecut in your cards.  It just adds something else to the card.

How to make it:

Firstly, stamp 2 of the detailed flowers on scrap Whisper White card in Berry Burst.  Then overstamp this with the solid full flower stamp in Powder pink.  The great thing is it doesn’t even have to be a perfect fit as it just adds a little colour.  Cut this with the flower Framelit shape in the Eclectic Layers Thinlits.

For the other flower, stamp the Solid full flower stamp in Berry Burst on scrap Whisper White and cut that with the flower Framelit.  Also cut a flower in Berry Burst with the detailed die and the flower shape die.  I run them together in the Big Shot.  It is much easier doing it that way. You will also need to cut 2 leaves from Lemon Lime Twist Card.

Then it’s a matter of assembling it all together. You can raise the flowers up with Dimensionals. Don’t forget the bling. 🙂

This next card was the Make and Take card they all made.  There needed to be some gentle encouragement for some to make it as they were a little intimidated but they were so proud of themselves when it was done.

How to make it: 

On a piece of Berry Burst card slightly smaller than your base card run it through your Big Shot with the Softly Falling Embossing Folder. This adds some lovely texture to your card.

On a piece of Whisper White, stamp the detailed flower stem stamp several times in Berry Burst. Then with the solid flower top stamp it in Powder Pink over the flowers.  Fill in some of the spaces on the white card with the little flowers stamped in Lemon Lime Twist.

When assembling the card, adhere a thin strip of Lemon Lime Twist under the right side edge of the White card.  Stamp the sentiment on to Powder Pink card and punch it out with the Duet Banner Punch. Sponged a little ink around the edge of the banner. Punch a second banner from Lemon Lime Twist card.  Adhere these together by off-setting them slightly.

Would you like to make these cards with me? If you’re local, let’s plan a date for us to share them with your friends. It would be a great excuse for you all to get together. Drop me an email or a comment.

Be back again soon,

DECEMBER WONDER CHRISTMAS!

I was playing around with a new stamp set last week ‘December Wonder’ from the Holiday Supplement Catalogue.  At first I dismissed the set because it was marked as Project Life – and well I don’t do a lot of Project Life and certainly not Christmas. (Did you think that about the set too???).  Then I had another look at it and thought it is still such a great set for your cardmaking. There are some really great images.  I will show you a few projects over the next few days with the set and you can see what you think.

Here are the cards I first made.

P1140726

These cards were inspired by a card on Pinterest that used ‘Endless Wishes’ but I don’t have that set.  (Yes really!).  I stamped the small and large snowflake on the bottom of Whisper White card. Stamped the greeting from the set and then pierced holes around the card with the Paper Piercer and mat.  I tied around some ribbon, added a snowflake embellishment from the Frosted Sequins Embellishments in the Holiday Catalogue and added a Rhinestone to the centre.  Quick cards that you could reproduce in a hurry.

The colours I used were Cherry Cobbler and Crumb Cake with the Cherry Cobbler Sheer Linen Ribbon and then for the second one Lost Lagoon and Crumb Cake with Lost Lagoon Satin Ribbon.

Here is the stamp set for you to check out if you haven’t already noticed it in the catalogue. 🙂

Stay tuned for some more exciting projects with this set this week.
