ORNATE GARDEN AND BEST DRESSED TOGETHER FOR A FAST ACTION CARD!

I was playing around just recently to put this card together.  I decided to film a video creating it to show the process I go through sometimes in creating a card. So not to bore you too much I sped the video up – with my lovely daughter’s technical skills. I have still much to learn in this area.  😉

When I make a card there is often a lot of deliberation and shifting things and uncertainty until it comes together.  I’m sure you find that too.

For this card I had a plan.  I always sketch the plan out first for a card.  I had already stamped and coloured the perfume bottle from the Dressed To Impress stamp set.  That was left over from another project.  I wanted to use some of the new Ornate Garden Suite that I had.

I have used the Ornate Borders Dies and the Ornate Layers Dies.  The paper is from the Dressed To Impress Designer Series Paper.  I also used the Ornate Floral 3D Embossing Folder.

So check the quick video out.

Do you like these super quick videos?  Would you like to see more of them?  I will see what my editor can do. 🙂

Here is the finished card for you.

Have a great day,

Jenny

BEST DRESSED – ALWAYS IN STYLE!

Another Best Dressed card for you since I am on that roll at the moment.  I will mix it up a bit never fear. 🙂

This is a sample I made for the display board at Onstage with the Best Dressed Suite.

You don’t need much with the gorgeous Best Dressed Designer Series Paper do you?? Such pretty little flowers and pretty colours.

I added a little stamping on the Petal Pink Stitched circle from the Stitched Shapes dies. To add colour to the perfume stamp one of the “wash” stamps.  The sentiment was cut with one of the stitched labels in the All Dressed Up dies and then you can tuck one of the Best Dressed Tassels in behind it.  I used a Glue Dot to stick it down.  The Pretty Peacock strip down the side was embossed with the Lace 3D Embossing Folder to add some texture.

I think Kindness is Always In Style right.  The world needs a little more kindness.

Have a great day to you and share a little kindness today,

Jenny

SUNDAY SUITES – BEST DRESSED SUITE!

Sunday Suites are back for 2020.  This week since I have been sharing projects with the Best Dressed Suite let’s have a closer look at the whole suite.

I think the Best Dressed Suite is a really fun one and can be quite classy too.

This is what is included in the entire Best Dressed Suite Bundle.

The Best Dressed Suite Bundle includes:

* Dressed to Impress Photopolymer Stamp Set (10% off)
* All Dressed Up Dies (10% off)
* Best Dressed 6″ x 6″ (15.2 x 15.2 cm) Designer Series Paper
* Mint Macaron 1/8″ (3.2 cm) Sheer Linen Ribbon
* Best Dressed 3″ x 3″ (7.6 x 7.6 cm) Note Cards & Envelopes
* Best Dressed Tassels

Colours used in the suite are: Blackberry Bliss, Daffodil Delight, Lovely Lipstick, Old Olive, Petal Pink, Pretty Peacock, Purple Posy, Mint Macaron.

Let’s have a closer look at the Best Dressed Designer Series Paper.  It is gorgeous.  One side has stylish images, the other side has floral prints either large or small.

One thing I learned when preparing my projects for Onstage was that the larger floral prints have been designed with white spaces around the flowers so you can easily fussy cut them to add directly to your projects.  I will share more about that on another post.

The Best Dressed Notecards and envelopes make really quick note cards to give to others.  They have a partly printed “swoosh” on the front of the card and the envelopes are printed on as well.  There are 24 in total with the cards and envelopes and they come in Daffodil Delight, Purple Posy and Petal Pink.  They are really sweet.  They are little cards measuring 3″x3″ or 7.6cm x 7.6cm.

What about some samples with these mini notecards.  These are straight from the catalogue. The notecards fit nicely inside the bag too so that gives you an idea of the size of the bag.

The All Dressed Dies are really fun.  They make the sweetest little bags.  You can change them up anyway you like.  See the samples below.  I have created a few fun bags already that I will share with you soon.

Don’t forget the Best Dressed Tassels as well.  There are 18 in total. 6 each in Petal Pink, Pretty Peacock and Whisper White.  With the White ones too you can colour them with the Stampin’ Blends or sit them in a little dish with reinker and water.

In the dies set is the long stitched die.  It’s great for the handles on your bags or I have used it as an edging but what about this fun idea.  Add the strips to the front of a card to create added texture.  This card sample is from Stampin’ Up!

So what do you think of the Best Dressed Suite?? Fun hey??

BEST DRESSED – LIPSTICK STREAK!

Another card for you today with the Best Dressed Suite.  This was another project I shared at Onstage last November with this suite.

The Dressed To Impress stamp set has some cute images and some really fun “wash” type images.  These washes are great to add colour to the cute images as an alternative to colouring them with the inks or the Stampin’ Blends, or you can use them as background stamping.

The stamp set is below so you get an idea.

I wanted to show a different way of using one of the longer “wash” streaks.  As you can see in the card below, use it as a nice long lipstick steak.  Make it any colour you like, BUT – Be as Bold As Your Lipstick. 🙂

For this card a piece of the Best Dressed Designer Series Paper was cut with a large Stitched Rectangles Dies and then one was cut on white card with a smaller of the rectangles.

On the Lovely Lipstick base card stamp some of the smaller flowers in the top left corner and the bottom right corner with Lovely Lipstick ink to give just a subtle background stamping.

On the white card stamp the “streak” across the bottom of the white card. I used Lovely Lipstick. Stamp your lipstick at an angle.  This one was coloured with the Smoky Slate Stampin’ Blends on the base of the lipstick.  The lipstick colour was stamped with the small circular “wash”.

Stamp the sentiment in Memento black and punch that out.  Add a few loops of the Silver Thread behind it before raising it up off the card.  Of course add some bling with the Rhinestones to finish.

Now go and streak that lipstick. 🙂

You can see this set and buy in store now -> HERE.

Don’t forget with every order with me you receive a Tutorial Bundle of 12 different projects as a little Thank you.  Plus I send out a little card and small gift to say Thanks so be sure to not mark it anonymous when you order. AND with orders over $90 you receive your choice of Free Sale-A-Bration set.  

Thanks for visiting me today.  Have a great weekend,

Jenny
