BLUEBERRY BUSHEL DELIGHTFULLY DETAILED!

This card I have for you today is another one using the Delightfully Detailed Laser-Cut Specialty Designer Series Paper.  This one is similar in layout to the one I showed you yesterday but this one is in Landscape orientation. Also, this one is showing the white side of the paper.

The sentiment is from Eastern Beauty stamp set again.  This time layered on a scallop cut with the Layering Circles Framelits from Silver Foil.  The Blueberry Bushel mat that the diecut was adhered to was then adhered to a piece of Whisper White card mat and then adhered to the card base.

I mentioned some tips in cutting this paper in yesterday’s post but I forgot to mention how I adhere them down on to the card.  For mine I added really small drops of the Multipurpose adhesive.  I found it helped by adding a “blob” of the adhesive on to scrap paper or on to the silicone mat.  Then picked up a little with the small tip of the adhesive bottle to dab it down on to your piece.  That was better in case when I squeezed the bottle I got a great big dollop on my project.  Not pretty!

More to come with this delicate paper.  Thanks for visiting.

MERRY MERLOT DELIGHTFULLY DETAILED PAIR!

Have you seen the gorgeous Delightfully Detailed Laser-Cut Specialty Designer Series Paper?  Just beautiful!  I have been creating with this paper this week and thought I would show you.  I have made lots so watch out for the next few posts.

Firstly about this paper: this Designer Series Paper comes in 8 light-weight sheets and delicately cut.  There are 4 each of 2 designs.  One is the lovely floral patterns and the other design is frames and borders.  They are Vanilla on one side and White on the other side so you can choose depending on your project.

You can cut the patterns out to use them.  I used the floral design and cut various sections of the paper.  You can see it below.  It does take time to cut it but I think it is worth it.  JUST A TIP: I laid a base card near the section where I was cutting so I could see what size to cut it out to.  This was better than just randomly cutting and I can see how the sections fitted on the card as I went.

For these cards I went with one of the new colours – Merry Merlot.

I used the Vanilla side of the paper for these cards.  You don’t need to add much to the cards.  The sentiment is from Eastern Beauty set.  I used the Layering Circles Framelits to cut the vanilla circle and a scallop one in Copper Foil.

This card below was inspired by a card I received this week from my upline – Vanessa.  I made mine to a standard size card adding one of the detailed flowers at the top of the Very Vanilla card base.  The sentiment from Southern Serenade is stamped on a square of Very Vanilla card and then layered on a square cut with the Stitched Shapes Framelits.  I added some loops of Copper Thread and also Adhesive Pearl around.

I have more cards to come with this paper so check back in very soon.

STAMPIN’ DREAMS BLOG HOP – ANNUAL CATALOGUE SNEAK PEEK!

Today I am joining in the Stampin’ Dreams Blog Hop.  It is all about the new Annual Catalogue Sneak Peek so you are in for a treat.  I am sure there are some lovely creations everyone will share today.  You might be starting here or you have just come from Elaine’s blog -> HERE.

Today I am focusing on the new Bundle Sitting Pretty.

I have created 2 cards with this Bundle.  I really like the seat Dies in the Pretty Park Framelits set.

I have used the gorgeous Share What You Love Designer Series Paper.  The card base is the new Incolor Grapefruit Grove.  For both of them I used sentiments from the set Eastern Beauty stamp set.  I kept the layout similar for both cards.

For the top card I cut the bench seat in Black Cardstock.  For the little bird I stamped it in black and stamped the inside of the bird in Mint Macaron.  You don’t even need to colour it with the markers or pencils.  Just a tip though: I stamped the inside of the bird twice turning the stamp slightly each time to give a little more cover in the inking.  It’s a little hard to know how to stamp it. Now don’t bother trying to cut this tiny bird with scissors.  You can cut it with the matching die!

On the card below I have used the lovely Velvet Rich Razzleberry Ribbon. For this set I stamped the ornate seat in Rich Razzleberry ink on Rich Razzleberry card.  This was then cut out with the matching die.  I also cut a heart in Silver Glimmer Paper with the heart die. 

I hope you like them.

A DAPPER DENIM/TIDAL TIDE MIX WITH THE EASTERN PALACE BUNDLE!

I have another Eastern Palace Suite card to show you today.  I created this card after I made the project for the Blog Hop while I still had everything out.  BTW: Have you checked the Blog Hop out yet with the Eastern Palace Suite?  If not head back 2 posts and start the Hop around to see some great projects with this suite. 

The card base is Dapper Denim and then a piece of the Eastern Palace Specialty Designer Series Paper is matted on to a Tidal Tide card mat.  I added one of the Eastern Gold Vinyl Stickers along the bottom edge.   For the flower I cut 2 of the shapes from the Eastern Medallions Thinlits in Tidal Tide and then 1 in Gold Foil.  I was still waiting on my Tidal Tide inkpad so I sponged the edges of the flowers with Versamark to add some depths of colour.  The flowers were layered together and then some stickers were placed on the top one.  Before adhering it to the card base I curled up the edges a little with my Bone Folder and then added some loops of the Gold Thread.  The sentiment is from the Eastern Beauty set and embossed in Gold and I added a little Gold embossed swirl as well.  This was punched out with the Classic Label punch and then adhered together with a Gold Foil one.   An adhesive Pearl was added to finish it off.

There you have it.  I hope you like it.  Until next time….

ESAD BLOG HOP WITH THE EASTERN PALACE SUITE!

Thank you for joining us on the ESAD Eastern Palace Suite Blog Hop.  I have already been sharing some cool projects with this suite this past week and I am excited to share this one with you too.

This project is a cute Tag and matching Envelope.  I will share the details on how to make it further below. It’s a bit hard to photograph with the shiny Gold Foil.  Sorry for the shine.

CREATING THE MINI TAG AND ENVELOPE.

THE ENVELOPE

1. Cut the envelope from the Mini Treat Bag Thinlits with the Eastern Palace Specialty Designer Series Paper.  Before you assemble the envelope be sure to cut the circle window in the front panel with the Layering Circles Framelits.

2. Cut the circled strip in Gold Foil using the Thinlits in the Mini Treat Bag Thinlits set.  The little flower on the front strip is cut from one of the small Thinlits in the Eastern Medallion Thinlits set in Gold Foil and Dapper Denim.  

3. The “flowery” diecut in the centre is from the Eastern Medallions Thinlits set.  It comes out attached to your card with the diecut outline. You can snip off the tiny sections where it is attached.  I then used one of the Layering Circle Framelits to cut out the centre of this piece and also cut the circle in the Treat Bag BEFORE  it is assembled as mentioned further above.

THE TAG

When you pull the tag out it reveals the stamped piece that you could see through the window of the bag.

1. On a piece of Very Vanilla card [measurements are 8.4cm x 12cm – (3 3/8″ x 4 3/4″)] stamp the smaller images from the ‘Eastern Beauty’ stamp set in Dapper Denim. At the bottom heat emboss in gold the “flourishy” image. Add a matching strip of DSP along the bottom.

2.Heat emboss the circle image from the ‘Eastern Beauty’ stamp set in gold onto  a small piece of Very Vanilla card. Then heat embossed the sentiment in the centre.  To do this first ink the stamp in Versamark and then ink in Dapper Denim ink before stamping on the card. Pour over your Clear Embossing Powder and heat.

3. Cut the stamped circle with the Layering Circle Framelits.  Layer this circle on to a Gold Foil Scallop Circle which is a larger size of Scallop than the circle in the Layering Circle Framelits. Raise them up off the card with Dimensionals.  Layer this Very Vanilla tag on to a piece of Dapper Denim card [measurements are 8.8cm x 12.4cm – (3 1/2″ x 4 7/8″)]  Then add a piece of Dapper Denim Ruched Ribbon at the top and a small Gold “flowery” diecut over it. To finish add an Adhesive pearl to the centre of the flower and one on the circle sentiment.

4. For the reverse of the tag cut a piece of Very Vanilla card the same size as the piece on the front of the tag. (measurements above).  Stamp the corner images again and repeat the DSP strip at the bottom and the Gold Embossed “flourish”.

If you haven’t seen this great suite yet then below is the stamp set and the thinlits.  How many different ways can you use these Thinlits?? I will show you in a post soon.
