MOUNTAIN AIR – CARD IN A BOX!

I had been playing with the Mountain Air Bundle recently. Before I move on to sharing projects with new products I thought I would share this card with you.  It’s a Card In A Box.  I love making these and I hadn’t made one in a while.

This bundle works so well with these style boxes.  You have lots of different images and can build up your scene.

To create the Card In A Box I have teamed it with the Country Club Designer Series Paper (retiring).

The sentiment is from the Peaceful Moments stamp set (carrying over).

The template for making the Card In A Box can be found on Di’s blog -> HERE.

I’m glad to see that this will be carrying over in to the new catalogue.  It gives me some more time to play with it later.

You can grab it now in store though -> HERE.

I have started playing with new products so I’m excited to be sharing some new projects with you starting next week.  EEK! New Catalogue!!!! 🙂

Have a great weekend,

Jenny

BEAUTIFUL MOMENTS WEEK – DAY 3 – TOP PANEL CARD!

Moving along on our Beautiful Moments Showcase Week.  Day 3.  This card is a little different.  I don’t know what you might call it but I call it a Top Panel Card.  I will share the instructions below.

The base card is a little smaller than the standard size allowing you to have a panel overhanging the edge.

Of course, you could do the base any size but for this one, the base card measures 21cm x 10.5cm scored at 10.5cm.  (8 1/2″ x 4 1/4″ scored at 4 1/4″).  The paper mat is slightly smaller 4mm (1/8″).

The stamped piece is watercolor card cut with the larger die in the Stitched So Sweetly Dies.  The image was stamped in Black Stazon and coloured with the Watercolor Pencils and washed over lightly with the Aquapainter.  When the watercolor card was cut it left some scratches on the other side.  (maybe because my plates are scratched!).  I didn’t want it showing on the reverse so I adhered a piece of White card on the back.

The sentiment was also stamped on watercolour card to match the stamped piece.  The sentiment is from the Positive Thoughts stamp set.  It was stamped in Black Stazon so I could do a light colour with the Daffodil Delight pencil and lightly wash it.  The flourish piece behind the sentiment is from the Flourish Dies.

Check back tomorrow for Day 4 of our Showcase using this lovely set.

It’s time for another Stamping Around The World Blog Hop. You might have come from Sue’s Blog ->HERE.

Today I have a card using the Brightly Gleaming Suite for you.  This is a Flap Fold style of card.

The card was inspired by one that was shared on Lee Ann’s blog -> HERE. I will give you the measurements below though before you are on your way to the next blog.

FLAP FOLD CARD

Card Base: 10.5cm x 14.8cm  (4 1/4″ x 5 1/4″)

Night of Navy card: 8.5cm x 21cm scored at 10.5cm  (3 1/4″ x 8 1/2″ scored at 4 1/4″)

Designer Series Paper: 8.1cm x 10.1cm ( 3″ x 4″)

Whisper White card (inside): 8.1cm x 10.1cm (3″ x 4″)

Scrap card for stamping ornaments and Copper Foil for Stitched Circle.

 

The base card is a single piece with the “flap” of card of Night of Navy adhered on to the top.

It is such an easy fold of card to make.  I hope you get to try one yourself.

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

MAGNOLIA HALF-FOLD CARD!

Today I have a Magnolia Card for you.  I shared a card recently with the Magnolia Blooms set.  This is another card I made at the time.

The Magnolia flower was coloured with the Petal Pink and the Mossy Meadow Stampin’ Blends.

This is a Half-Fold Card.  The front of the card base is cut in half. I used a strip of the Magnolia Lane Designer Series Paper down the left hand edge of the card base.

There is a smaller panel that is placed off the edge of the front flap with the magnolia image.  It’s simple but adds another dimension to your card.  See the inside below.

I should have coloured the inside leaves.  I forgot about them.

 

I’m really liking this Magnolia Blooms set.  Why?

  • It’s simple to use.
  • It’s easy to colour. The simple lines and shading makes it easy to follow when colouring to get the depth of colour on it.
  • It’s great for a Beginner stamper starting out in stamping but great for the Avid stamper who can step it up with other products they have.
  • It has great sentiments for any occasion.  I love the font too.
  • It’s affordable.  $24 AUD people! How great is that.

So have you got this set?? Really.  It’s one of THE most affordable sets in the catalogue.  You won’t find it in the Annual Catalogue.  It is in the Experience Creativity brochure.

Available to order in my store now -> HERE.

PENGUIN EASEL FOR SEPTEMBER STAMPING AROUND THE WORLD BLOGHOP!

It’s time for September Blog Hop with the Stamping Around the World Tutorial Group.  You might have come from Sue’s Blog or starting here.

For our Blog Hop we use the stamp set/bundle that we used in this month’s Tutorial Bundle that are sent out.  Of course I used the Playful Penguins set from the new 2019 Holiday Catalogue. They are just too cute. 

For this Blog Hop I have made probably the easiest Easel card you could create.  The idea came from Lou’s blog -> HERE.

Let me show you the card and I will tell you how I have made it.

Front View

From Top

Side View

Folded card

To create the Super Simple Easel Card

See the ‘Side View’ photo above to get an idea of the fold.

Cut card to the standard size base card whether you are using Metric or the Imperial US card size.

Score 2.5 cm (1″) on the front of the card base. Fold on the score line.  This is for the fold of the Easel.

Cut a strip of card 2.5cm wide (1″) and the length being the width of the card.

I added a strip of the Christmas Gleaming stripe pattern on this piece of card. This strip is then adhered to the bottom edge of the inside of the card with dimensionals.  This strip creates the anchor point to hold the Easel up.

Decorate

Decorate the Easel card as you like.

I cut a curved strip of Sparkle Glimmer Paper and adhered it on the folded tab.  3 Penguins were stamped with their scarves and then hand-cut and raised up off the Glimmer Paper.  A piece of the Christmas Gleaming Designer Series Paper was adhered to the front of the card which you can see as the star pattern on the top panel.

The sentiment was stamped on a strip of white card but check out the flourish banner Gold Foil.  That was cut using the Ornate Frames Dies from the Holiday Catalogue.

Such an easy card to create but so fun with these penguins.

WEDNESDAY’S WOW! #68 – FAREWELL LOVELY AS A TREE!

Today is a special Wednesday’s WOW!

Today we take a moment to remember the timeless Lovely As A Tree set.  It is so sad that this set is leaving us.  Each year we scour the catalogue to see if it has made it in.  This year though I think we were all saddened to see that it’s time had finally come. 

This set started in the Catalogue in the US back in 2001.  I believe it was designed by Shelli Gardner’s sister who started Stampin’ Up! with Shelli.  This set has been like a much loved family member so it is a sad occasion.  I bought this set in my first Demonstrator order after I joined back in 2008. This set has had so much use and I think every Christmas it gets pulled out.  It is such a classic stamp set.

So today for Wednesday’s WOW! #68 we look back at some of my projects with this stamp set.  I am sad that I couldn’t find photos of some cards I had made but let’s have a look back at these projects I have kept. I have to say it is also a look back at my stamping style too.  Perhaps that is a little embarrassing but … anyway. Enjoy the nostalgic journey.  Apologies in advance for lots of photos.

May 2011 – See the original Post -> HERE.

I don’t know what I was thinking with that button.

Even the inside of the card was stamped with the trees.

From a Stamp A Stack Christmas 2011 with another classic stamp Dasher.  What a great combination these stamps were.  See the original post -> HERE.

These cards were some I received for Christmas 2013.  It included a couple of cards using the Lovely As A Tree set.  I like how the tree is used on it’s side to give the effect of branches.  Very cute.

This Tunnel card was a favourite at a Christmas Card class in 2013.  You can see that post -> HERE and I included a Tutorial how to make the Tunnel card there too in that blog post.  Go and check it out.

This one below was a real WOW! at class back in 2011.  Everyone loved this card. This was a Sparkly Christmas card. You can see it in this post -> HERE and I have a tutorial how to make it in that post. You can use this technique with any stamp set.

Now this next card we actually made at a team meeting like nearly 2 years ago.  I didn’t quite finish it at the time.  So I put it aside on my desk to finish.  All it needed was to be stuck together and a sentiment added.  Well I actually finished it a month ago.  Or actually my daughter finished it for me.

On this card I masked a section of the card and sponged in the section.  Then with the group of trees I heat embossed in Silver Embossing Powder.

This card below was the most recent one from last Christmas.  I realised I hadn’t shared this card with you before. We used the Copper Shimmer Paint and swiped it over the card mat that had been embossed with the Tin Tile Embossing Folder.

Then for more shine we added the Shimmer Paint directly to the tree stamp and also on to the sentiment stamp.  To do this use the Dauber and pick some Shimmer Paint from inside the lid of the Shimmer Paint bottle then lightly dauber over the stamp.  Then stamp it on your card.  Against the Merry Merlot colour it is quite classy.

So sadly the Lovely As A Tree stamp set has sold out now.  I hope you managed to get hold of one.

A new replacement might just be the Rooted in Nature stamp set.  Have you added that one yet to your collection? This set has a number of stamps AND dies.  I think this will be a good alternative.  Hopefully I will get to play more with that one again soon.

Thanks everyone for your patience as we wander down memory lane.

Farewell Lovely As A Tree.  You have been a reliable stamp set for all those special projects and festive occasions. You will be missed.  But I won’t be able to part with you just yet.  Enjoy your retirement.

Jenny

BOTANICAL BUTTERFLIES WEEK BONUS – W CARD!

I have a bonus project to share with you today for Botanical Butterflies week.  It’s a ‘W’ card.  I have seen a few of them around and was wanting to try one.  We made this one at our team meeting on Wednesday night and I thought it was good timing. So you get a bonus project.

Don’t look closely.  It was made in a rush at the meeting.  There are lots of parts to this card but it will give you an idea.  And can’t beat those pretty butterflies from the gorgeous Botanical Butterflies paper.

This is the card closed.  Tied up with some of the lovely soft Lemon Lime Twist Organdy ribbon.  The sentiment is from Incredible Like You and the paper on the front is from the Gingham Gala Paper. 

This is the inside of the card with more pretty butterflies.

I won’t give you the details of how to make one as you can check it out for yourself.  The card was CASED from Jan B cards.  HERE is the link to her Youtube video.  It’s long one.  It goes for 47 minutes so be prepared with a drink in hand and take notes.  The card is very easy though once all the cutting is done and you can decorate it anyway you like.

What could you do inside? Some stamped and cut images, a baby card, maybe a 4 letter name. Endless ideas to work with.

Have fun with it.

I hope you like the Botanical Butterflies week.  The ideas I have shared could work with any paper.  This gorgeous paper is Free though.  Can’t beat that. 

This is a Sale-A-Bration choice for orders over $90.  You could choose the gorgeous Painted Seasons paper or any of the other choices.  You only have one week left so get on it.

In Australia? You can order in my store -> HERE.  

Have a great weekend,

Jenny

BIRTHDAY CHEER EASEL CARD!

I held a Birthday Cheer class on the weekend.  It was showcasing the great Birthday Cheer Bundle from the Occasions Catalogue and making some fun cards with it.  I don’t often share my class cards with you but I thought I would share with you about this.

One of the cards I made was an Easel card.  This card was inspired by one I saw on Pinterest.

This first card was the card I made to share at the class. Everyone thought it was nice.  It was using the gorgeous Grapefruit Grove Foil Sheets from Sale-A-Bration. (On a side note did you know that this foil is nearly sold out?? You might want to grab this as your next free choice for Sale-A-Bration). It is so shiny.

The single cupcake is stamped in Stazon and watercoloured with the inkpads. There is a die to cut it too.

The Easel card is very easy to make.

To make one: Take a standard sheet of card. Cut it in half vertically. Take one of those halves and score it in half and then score one of those sections in half again.  Then fold up to create an easel.

With any type of Easel card you need something on the base as a stopper to hold up the Easel.  For this one I used the Oval sentiment piece.

While I made this card and used this for the class I had a different idea in my head but it wasn’t working before the class.

During the class when I was demonstrating this I played around with it and created this version below.  Everyone loved this idea even more and made this one instead for their card.  So I thought you might like to see it then.

I created the Easel card the same with the cutting and scoring.  This time though I rearranged the pieces.  So simple really but so much more effective.  Adhere your diecut cupcake border behind the Mint Marcaron card piece.  For the stopper on this I used the cupcake.

Doesn’t that create a bit more of a WOW??

Why not create your own.

Thanks for stopping by,

Jenny
