HAND-PENNED CARD SET WITH BASIC BORDERS DIES!

Today I have 5 very simple cards to share with you. I created these as samples for my launch a few weeks ago. I have used the Hand-Penned Designer Series Paper.

They might be simple but let me tell you what they show.

  1. They show a different print of the gorgeous Hand-Penned paper on each card.
  2. They show a decorative edge with a different die from the Basic Borders Dies.
  3. Each card has a different sentiment from the Many Messages stamp set cut with a different shape from the Messages Die.
  4. Each card has co-ordinating ribbon as an accent. The ribbon is the White Crinkled Seam Binding coloured with the Stampin’ Blends. (How cool is it to be able to get matching colours)

To finish I added an Opal Round or an Adhesive Pearl on each one.

I have added a vellum leaf under the sentiment punched out with the Sprig Punch.

Cards in a hurry that’s what they are. Probably the longest part was colouring the ribbon.

Check them out closer.

Mint Macaron

Daffodil Delight

Highland Heather

Cinnamon Cider

Blushing Bride

Very simple but I hope you like them.

Happy Stamping,

Jenny

UNDER MY UMBRELLA CARD ON A RAINY DAY!

The other day I decided to play just because. No creating for classes, blog posts, Youtube, Challenge cards, Thank You cards. I just decided to pull out a set to create. I very rarely do that. (Maybe I should do it more too).

It was grey and rainy here and has been for some time. By looking at the weather it’s going to be raining for some time still. That doesn’t matter when you can just pull out card and ink and play.

I grabbed the Under My Umbrella stamp set. Maybe because it was raining. Here is the card. I was surprised it didn’t take long to put together.

The images were coloured with the Stampin’ Blends.

You can find the Under My Umbrella stamp set in my store -> HERE. Don’t forget the Umbrella Punch too. That makes cutting the umbrellas out so easy. You do need to fussy cut the boots.

Have a happy day. If it’s raining where you are keep safe and dry.

HEY BIRTHDAY CHICK POP OUT SWING CARD + VIDEO!

Friday Flicks. I have a fun card for you in today’s video. This video is a replay from my Facebook Live on Wednesday. I created a Pop Out Swing Card with the Hey Birthday Chick Bundle. I have made a few of these over the years and I love making them. It has been a while so thought I would pull it out again and freshen it up.

Here is the card for you first.

MAKE YOUR OWN POP OUT SWING CARD

The video will show you the details. I will give you general details and measurements below.

Base card is a standard size card. Designer Series paper is 4mm (1/8″) smaller. I used the Balmy Blue pattern in the Subtles pack New demonstrators receive free in Sale-A-Bration. (They will receive a pack from each Colour Collection. 200 6″x6″ in total valued at $100)

I used the Layering Squares Dies for the window cut-out. You can use a circle or rectangle also if you wish.

The inside White card measures. 15.2cm x 12.8cm (6″ x 5″). Score at 5cm and 10cm. (2″ and 4″). Adhere to the inside of the card with the white card in the folded position. ONLY place adhesive on the back of the right hand section. Centre it inside the card to the right and at the top and bottom. Close up the card and adhere the square panel in through the window to adhere to the white bi-folded card. Only place adhesive on the back on the right hand section.

Check out the Hey Chick or the Hey Birthday Chick Bundles. They both have the cute chicks and dies that co-ordinate with each one.

FINE ART FLORAL THANK YOU CARDS!

I like making little Thank You cards for my customers for when they order with me. I couldn’t help this month to use the new gorgeous Fine Art Floral Suite.

The Smoky Slate card base was stamped with the flower a couple of times with Smoky Slate ink. For the white card piece. Firstly diecut the white card with the scalloped rectangle frame from the Stitched So Sweetly dies.

Some tips with stamping the flower.

I first inked it with Old Olive and before stamping I used the Blender Pen to wipe off the Old Olive Ink on the small flower heads. To do this, swipe with the Blender Pen and rub off the ink on to scrap paper. Keep doing this until the ink is off. It takes a couple of goes. Then coloured them with a Blender Pen dipped in Pumpkin Pie ink. Then you can stamp it on the white card. With the Dark Poppy Parade Stampin’ Blends I coloured a little dot on the flowers.

I stamped the flowers again in Pumpkin Pie ink on to scrap white card and used the small detail flower stamped in Poppy Parade. Diecut the flower using the Floral Gallery Dies. I snipped off the stem on this one then raised the flower head up off the card Dimensionals. I love the extra height and dimension you get that way.

If you order with me this month you will get to receive one of these cards. 🙂

Stop by my store to order -> HERE or you can contact me directly and I will help you out.

Thank you for your orders. I know you will love the products when you get that package on your doorstep. 🙂

QUITE CURVY CARD IN CALYPSO CORAL!

Today’s card was created in my Facebook Live on Wednesday. Yes! I have ventured in to doing Lives. This is something I have put off for so long. But I am hoping that each Wednesday afternoon I can share a card with you on Facebook.

The video is now on my Youtube channel and I will post it here for you. For the card I used the Quite Curvy Bundle. I am loving these stamps and dies.

Here is the card.

The leaves were coloured with the Stampin’ Blends. I used the Wrapped In Texture Embossing Folder and the sentiment piece is diecut with the Tasteful Labels Dies.

I had made one of these cards before the Live for a swap card in my JEN’s INK Team Facebook Group. It was great to get some of my team creating for that. I will share the other swap cards soon. The card I made for the swap was in Highland Heather.

WORLD CARDMAKING DAY BLOGHOP!

It’s World Cardmaking Day.  How great is it that there is a date that we celebrate all things cardmaking whether it be creating the cards and the pleasure it brings or in  sharing the joy of giving the cards.

Today to celebrate we have a Blog Hop with lots of Demonstrators from around the world.  The theme today is sharing a corner of your world.

For me,  I live on the East coast of Australia just south of Sydney.  I live about 200 metres (1/4 mile) from the beach. I spend a lot of my time at the beach all year around.  It’s my happy place, my place to escape and leave the worries of the day behind.

This is my local beach.  We have so many beaches up and down the coast though which I do visit too.

So of course since the beach is a big part of my life I had to create a card for that.  I chose to use the Seaside Notions stamp set.

I love different folds too so wanted to make something a little different.  This is a type of Easel card.

Front on.

Side view you can see the fold and the flaps.

Don’t forget to decorate the inside.

See it open.

This was a fun card to make.  To save time I won’t share how to make it today.  Come back and visit me again tomorrow and I will give you the details.  Be sure to PIN one of the images to Pinterest so you know how to head back here.

You can now continue on the hop by heading to the link below where it says Click here.

WARM AND TOASTY REINDEER!

Are you loving the Warm and Toasty Stamp set? It is so cute.

I have a sweet card for you today with the Reindeer.

I have to say I was a little nervous colouring this reindeer.   I am not the greatest at it but I was pleased how this turned out in the end. I used the Stampin’ Blends.

The paper is from the ‘Tis the Season Designer Series Paper.  You don’t need much more to the card really. I added a little  loop of Red Sheer Ribbon.

In Australia? Grab the Warm and Toasty stamp set in my store -> HERE

I think you will really enjoy this set.  Even in Australia here where we don’t have snow for Christmas you just can’t help but love these happy characters for your Christmas projects.

STAMPING AROUND THE WORLD JUNE BLOG HOP!

Time for another Blog Hop with the Stamping Around The World Tutorial Group.  We bring you different Tutorials each month and join together in a Blog Hop.

This month I am using the Tasteful Touches Bundle.  I have loved using this bundle the last few weeks.  It is so gorgeous.

Here is my project for you.

The flower is stamped over the white card with Basic Gray ink.  It just makes a simple statement.  The flower is stamped again on scrap white card and this one coloured with the Flirty Flamingo and Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Blends.  The flower is fussy cut out with scissors.

The sentiment piece is stamped on Sahara Sand and diecut with the small banner shape from the Tasteful Labels Dies.  I thought the flower was a little bare so added a scallop circle cut from Vellum.  This scallop is cut with the scallop die in the the Tasteful Label Dies set.

Card measurements:

Thick Whisper White card base: 21cm x 14.8cm scored at 10.5cm   (8 1/2″ x 5 1/2″ scored at 4 1/4″)
