WEDNESDAY’S WOW! #93 – LAYERING THE POPPY MOMENTS DIES!

Wednesday’s WOW! #93.  Today we are looking at the Poppy Moments Dies.  These are lovely dies in the 2020 Stampin’ Up! Mini Catalogue.  There are so many dies and what do you do with them??

Today’s Wednesday’s WOW! is Layering the Poppy Moments Dies.  See how these flower dies work together.

You will find in these dies a number of flower shapes and leaf shapes.  They can work on their own or layer them together.  You can see in the image above how I have layered them.

There are a number of small flower centres too.  The really small leaf shape that you can use for the small “bud”, I have also used as a small leaf.  I showed that in the little tags in the previous post.

Below is the dies to see what they actually look like.  One die I haven’t shown on the image above is that small shape in the top left.  This diecuts the pattern in your card.  It doesn’t completely cut the card.  I will share that in another post to show you how it works.

Hope this is helpful for you when you come to use the dies.  PIN the image so you have it as a reminder next time.

Have a great day,

Jenny

POPPY THANK YOU TAGS!

On the weekend for my special Poppies class I made each person that came a little Thank You tag for coming.

They are just simple tags but you don’t need to do a lot with these poppies.

The top of the Whisper White tag is punched with the Delightful Tag Topper Punch with some Petal Pink Metallic Edge ribbon through the top.

After cutting the poppies,  the Petal Pink solid flower was sponged with a little Petal Pink ink and then the outline poppy in Poppy Parade was adhered over the top.  There was just a little strip of the Peaceful Poppies Designer Series Paper across the bottom.  The leaf cut in Granny Apple Green is actually the “leaf” or base for the small poppy bud but I think it works well as a little leaf.

The “splotch” stamp is from the Painted Poppies Stamp set and the Thank You from the Peaceful Moments stamp set.  

Sweet tags in no time.

I showed you all about the gorgeous Poppies products in yesterday’s Sunday Suites.  Did you check them out?

You can head to my shop now -> HERE and see them. 

If ordering just add the Host Code at checkout. R26WHBUN  Thank you kindly. 🙂

Happy Stamping,

Jenny

CHRISTMASTIME IS HERE TAGS!

Over the weekend I had my last class for the year.  It’s been a fun year of creating, sharing and laughs.  For our last class we made a Christmas box and 6 tags.  I thought we would have a closer look at the tags.

We made 2 of each of these tags using the gorgeous Christmastime is Here Specialty Designer Series Paper.  They were certainly loved by everyone and I think they will grace many presents this Christmas.

What else did we use?

Itty Bitty Christmas, Christmas Gleaming Stamp set, Snow Globe Scenes Dies, Rectangles Stitched Dies, Stitched Shapes Dies, Detailed Trio Punch, Banner Triple Punch, Delightful Tag Topper Punch, Sprig Punch.

Hope they might inspire you with your Christmas tags.

The Christmastime is Here Suite of products are still available.  I would grab that paper. It is great not just for Christmas.

See them -> HERE.

Have a great week,

Jenny

NATURE’S BEAUTY FOR WORLD CARDMAKING DAY 2019!

This weekend is World Cardmaking Day. A great day to celebrate what we love – to create cards and sharing them.

This weekend I am having a special class to celebrate World Cardmaking Day.  It is focusing specifically on the Nature’s Beauty stamp set. We are getting together not just to make cards but to raise money for Mental Health.  I will show you one of the cards we will be making but also tell you how you can help me raise money for Mental Health too, even it you can’t make the class. 

For this card I stamped the fox in Memento Black and coloured them with the Stampin’ Blends; Calypso Coral and Mint Macaron.  The white card was cut with the Stitched Rectangles Dies and trimmed off a little at the top to straighten it off.  The strip of paper is from the Mosaic Mood Specialty Designer Series Paper.  On top of that you wrap around some Linen Thread.

The trees were stamped several times in Mint Macaron on the card mat with some stamped snow drops along the top of the card.

I am so looking forward to this fun class this weekend.  BUT if you can’t make it you can support Mental Health too.  Let me tell you how.

  • Order the Nature’s Beauty stamp set, Stampin’ Up! will donate $4.25 to local Mental Health Organisations.
  • Place any order between October 3rd and October 6th and I will donate 20% commission to Headspace.

This is for Australian residents only sorry.

Here is the Nature’s Beauty Stamp set if you haven’t noticed it. It is tucked away on the very last page of the Holiday Catalogue. It is $37 AUD.

HOW TO ORDER:

Order directly to me by emailing or phoning me.

OR order Online -> HERE. Please use the Host Code: 3JU96AZ

Any order receives a small gift to say Thanks.  Orders over $78 will receive the Tutorial Bundle of 12 projects from a group of Demonstrators from around the world that I am a part of.

I appreciate your support. Thank You.

Have a great weekend and I hope that you get to make a card yourself this weekend.

WRAPPED IN PLAID CHRISTMAS GLEAMING!

Today I wanted to show you the second card everyone got to make at the Hot Chocolate Bar Holiday Catalogue Launch.  If you missed the other card head back a post.

This card is made using the Christmas Gleaming Bundle but I matched it with the Wrapped in Plaid Designer Series Paper. It gives it a totally different look.

I made this card for a swap group I have been in too.  I will show you the other cards I received in the swap in a later post.

So this is the card.  It’s a half-fold card.  That’s what I call it anyway.

The card was inspired by a card by Julie Davison.  It was using a totally different stamp set and paper but I liked the idea.

To create the card, cut your card vertically in half giving you a long piece of card.  Score that in half.  Then I cut one section of it in half.  It’s a very easy fold to do but something a little different.

I cut a length of the Wrapped in Paper and punched the end with the Banner Triple Punch.  You can create it any length you like.  The width though is 5cm (2″) so it can fit in the punch.

The ornament was stamped in Cherry Cobbler on white card and punched with the Gleaming Ornament Punch.  It was then layered on a Cherry Cobbler circle cut with the Stitched Circles dies.  The little flourishes were stamped in Shaded Spruce on the front of the card.

Here is the inside.  Adhere a piece of White card inside and you will see this from the front which I stamped the holly on. The little dots are stamped in Crumb Cake around the holly.

It’s a fun card and very easy layout.

Here are a few cards using different prints from the Wrapped In Plaid paper.

Try it sometime yourself with maybe even a different stamp set.

Happy Stamping,

Jenny

HOT CHOCOLATE BAR CATALOGUE REVIEW!

A few weeks ago now I had the catalogue launch for the 2019 Holiday Catalogue.  I decided on a Hot Chocolate Bar for it.  Since Christmas is so hot here it’s not the time for Hot Chocolate.  Actually it had been quite hot the days leading up to the weekend so it was a bit ironic.  On the day though the weather cooled down.  It was a lot of fun and always so nice for everyone to see what is out for their Christmas creating.

I thought I would share a little bit of it with you.

Firstly, since it was a Hot Chocolate Bar I made up the little gifts in take-away coffee cups.  I know they are not environmentally friendly but I had these sitting around so why not use them.

They were decorated with the snowflake from the Christmas Layers Dies from the Dazzling Glimmer Paper.  It is a bit hard to see the sparkle.  How gorgeous is that Cherry Cobbler Diagonal stripe Ribbon.

The sentiment is from the Itty Bitty Christmas set but check the frame.  You might actually miss these in the catalogue.  They are created with the Ornate Frames Dies from Shaded Spruce card and then a Cherry Cobber Scallop square from the Layering Squares Dies.

See it here closer.

In the cups I had some ribbon and little embellishments and of course the obligatory chocolate treat. 🙂

We made 2 cards on the day.  I will show you one today and then another tomorrow.

We used the Brightly Gleaming Suite for the cards.

The card above is quite simple really but it looks quite classy with the gorgeous shiny copper accents on the Brightly Gleaming Specialty Designer Series Paper and the sparkly Star Designer Elements. The Copper Foil was embossed with the Hammered Metal 3D Embossing Folder.  Doesn’t that look a cool effect.

When I made the card originally I made a small gift tag up with some “bits” left over.  It’s good to have a matching tag.

The Classic Weave Ribbon is gorgeous with the embossed copper words on it.

I will show you the other card next time.

Until then, why not stop on by my store and check out all the Brightly Gleaming items in the suite. HEAD -> HERE.

If you want to order any of these please use the HOST CODE: 3JU96AZN

Or you can contact me directly to order. (Australian residents only).

Thanks for visiting.  Be sure to stop by again to see the other project. And By the way, If you live in Wollongong be sure to come along to a class sometime.  We are a friendly bunch.  It will be great to see you.
