SO HOPPY HALF FOLD CARD!

I have a bright, happy card for you today.  I wanted to create some more with this fun Sale-A-Bration set So Hoppy Together.  I have made a few cards recently.  If you missed them you can click on the tag ‘So Hoppy Together’ down the bottom.

For the card I cut off about 3cm (1 1/4″) on the front panel.  The cheery paper is from the How Sweet It Is DSP pack.  I had JUST enough of that paper for the front.  The frog is stamped in Memento and coloured with the Stampin’ Blends. 

Of course, I used the Layering Circles Framelits and the Stitched Shapes Framelits.  These don’t move too far off my table. The little tag is from the Wood Crate Framelits.  It’s just the right size.  The card was inspired by THIS card here but I decided to cut the card down and changed it around a little. 

Here is the inside.  I stamped the flies down the side.  Cute but in real life I don’t like being in a swarm of flies especially with those bulging eyes.  🙂  The sentiment is from Amazing Life.

How fun is it??

You can still get the So Hoppy Together stamp set but not for much longer.  2 weeks left for Sale-A-Bration.

12 WEEKS OF CHRISTMAS – WEEK 11 – ALL IS BRIGHT!

I know I have featured the All is Bright Designer Series Paper a lot recently for my 12 Weeks of Christmas.  But hey! it’s a fun, festive paper and so easy to make cards with and that is what 12 Weeks of Christmas is all about.

Here we have Week 11 of our 12 Week of Christmas series.

The card base is Garden Green. The red card mat was embossed with the Softly Falling Embossing Folder. The piece of All is Bright Designer Series paper which is about 7.5cm wide (3″) was cut to a banner ends with scissors.  The circle wreath from the Making Christmas Bright was stamped in Garden Green.  The sentiment was stamped in black and the Bright was stamped in Real Red.  I added some Red Rhinestones for dress up the wreath.  This circle wreath was adhered on to a scallop circle in Gold Foil cut with the Layering Circles Framelits.  Before adhering this piece to the card I added some Red Satin Ribbon hanging from behind it.  

I love the brightness of this card and the festive feel to it.  Very traditionally red and green Christmas don’t you think?

So next Friday is our last project for our 12 Weeks of Christmas.  That’s crazy! That means it’s almost Christmas.  I don’t know about you but I am totally not ready.  How about you?

Just a note on this stamp set too the Making Christmas Bright.  This stamp set is carrying over BUT not as a bundle.  If you like this stamp set then grab it now and get it at 10% off for the Bundle.  It is too late for this year’s projects but then you are all ready for next year.

SNOWFLAKE SHOWCASE WEEK – DAY 5 + 12 WEEKS OF CHRISTMAS WEEK 6. WHAT A TREAT!

     

Two in One for you today.  It’s Friday which means I have a special project for you for our 12 Weeks of Christmas series.  And since it is the end of our Snowflake Showcase Week let’s use snowflakes for this project.  I do hope you like this.

I wanted to create a special Christmas Gift Tag/Ornament using the Snowflakes but keeping it simple so you can easily create a few of them.

To create the Snowflake Tag/Ornament

Cut the large snowflake from the Snowfall Thinlits from White Velvet Paper. Cut the next size down snowflake from Silver Glimmer Paper, the next size down from Tranquil Tide and one of the smaller ones from White Velvet Paper.  Layer them and adhere them together.  I used the Multipurpose Adhesive for that.

Cut two medium size circle from the Layering Circles Framelits from Tranquil Tide card.  Adhere the snowflake on to the front of the one of the circles.  Loop a length of the Silver Metallic Edge Ribbon adhere behind the Tranquil Tide Circle.  Adhere the 2nd circle behind that so the ribbon is sandwiched between the circles.  That last circle behind is optional but I think it gives a neater finish so you don’t see the ribbon at the back.

—–

Have you liked these projects with the Snowflake Showcase??  Are these products something you would buy?

I did say a Week of projects.  Well … I am off to Stampin’ Up! Onstage this weekend.  SO, I am going to give you a bonus project tomorrow with these products to keep you going all weekend.  I will be back next week to tell you what I can.  I am so excited to be off to Melbourne.

Have a great weekend and if you are going to Onstage somewhere in the world have a great time.  By the way, these events are just for Demonstrators.  If you would love to go and you are not a Demonstrator then maybe you will just have to join right. It’s just another added bonus. 🙂

If you are in Australia you can join with me in my JEN’s INK team.  I have lots of hobby demonstrators if you just want the discount for yourself OR maybe you would like to get a little income and have some friends/family or new customers purchase from you. There is no hard selling as everyone loves the products. I show you the steps and help you whatever you want to achieve.  You can stop by my page at the top to ‘JOIN THE JEN’s INK TEAM’ and find out more.

FESTIVE FARMHOUSE CHRISTMAS CARD!

A couple of weeks ago for my Week 1 of 12 Weeks of Christmas I showed how quickly your Christmas cards can be made using the lovely Designer Series Paper from Stampin’ Up!. (Head back a few posts if you missed it).

Today I have another Christmas card for you using Designer Series Paper.  This one uses the Festive Farmhouse Designer Series Paper.

The sentiment from the Farmhouse Christmas set is stamped in Old Olive on Granny Apple Green and cut with one of the Layering Circles Framelits.  It was stamped again in Real Red on white and cut with the Stitched sentiment label die in the Farmhouse Framelits dies.  Before they were raised up off the card I added a couple of leaves punched from the Sprig Punch from Real Red and vellum.  I finished the sentiment off with a double bow from Linen Thread.  The base card is Old Olive and the Real Red.  I have to say the colour in the paper is actually Cherry Cobbler but it worked with red.  I don’t know why I used that but I think because I was making the other card that I had shared at the same time and just used the same colours.  I have to say you don’t notice it though.

So there is another quick Christmas card for your collection.

Thanks for stopping by,

POSTCARDS PALS TRIO!

I have been wanting to share these cards with you for a few weeks.  I coloured them a couple of months ago and posted the images on Instagram and Facebook but only recently assembled them on to a card.  These cards use the very cute Postcard Pals set.  I have to say I was a little hesitant getting the stamp set as I am not very good at colouring.  I am working on it.  I saw such cute cards with them though and it may have just slipped in with an order one time. 😉

Here are the 3 cards.  My daughter did point out to me that I hadn’t coloured the Platypus dude.  I will do him shortly.  I can’t miss him out. 🙂

Here they are close-up for you.

For this one below I have stamped the image in Black Stazon on Shimmery White card and coloured it with the Watercolour Pencils.  The base card is Crushed Curry and the paper is from the Country Lane Designer Series Paper.  I went around lightly in Basic Gray pencil and washed it over to add dimension to the image.

This next card is stamped on to Thick Whisper White card and coloured with the Stampin’ Blends.  Isn’t this beaver such a happy chappy.  The Real Red card is embossed with the Subtle Embossing Folder and a strip of paper from the Share What You Love Specialty Designer Series Paper.  The card needed something else.  Rather than a card mat I thought a decorative strip.  I pulled out the Delicate Lace Edgelits and cut the “triangular” edge one from Pool Party card.

Now we have a happy Pelican.  This one was stamped on Shimmery White and coloured with Watercolour Pencils.  The sentiment was stamped on Pear Pizzazz and cut with the Stitched Shaped Framelits.  I also cut a scalloped circle from the Layering Circles Framelits from Silver Glimmer Paper to adhere underneath this one.  The white card was a bit plain so I added some “spots” from the Farmhouse Christmas set that I had out on my desk still.

I hope you like these trio.  They make me smile whenever I look at them.

Have a happy day,

Jenny

12 WEEKS OF CHRISTMAS – WEEK 2 – HOLLY CHRISTMAS!

Week 2 of 12 Weeks of Christmas.   Today I am sharing a card with the Timeless Tidings stamp set.

Today’s card is not exactly quick but if you had a small number of cards to send out I think these would be pretty special.  You could simplify it to make it quicker if you like.  Although you are colouring the leaves they are simple to colour.  I used the Old Olive and the Cherry Cobbler Stampin’ Blends.  You could leave off the loopy Gold Threads and if you didn’t want to emboss the Cherry Cobbler strip either that would make it quick.  I had embossed this strip with the Subtle Embossing Folder. But really there isn’t a lot to do on the card.   I hope you like it anyway. 🙂

Thanks for stopping by,

12 WEEKS OF CHRISTMAS – WEEK 1 – ALL IS BRIGHT CHRISTMAS!

I am excited!  Today starts a special series on my blog.  Every Friday I will share projects with you for 12 Weeks of Christmas.  Yes, it is getting that close. Eek!

My plan for this series is to bring you reasonably quick cards and projects to help you in your Christmas creating.  So stay tuned for them.

My first project is a very quick card.  How much quicker can it get with the beautiful papers that Stampin’ Up! offer.

Add a piece of the lovely paper on a standard card mat.  This paper is from the All is Bright Designer Series Paper from the Holiday Catalogue.

The sentiment is from the Farmhouse Christmas set.  Firstly stamped on Whisper White which is cut with one of the circles from the Layering Circles Framelits and then layered on a Scalloped Circle from Gold Foil.  The sentiment is stamped again on Real Red and then cut with one of the framelits from the Farmhouse Framelits.  Before adhering that to the card with Dimensionals I punched out some leaves from Old Olive with the Sprig Punch.   

With one sheet of Designer Series Paper you will be able to get 6 cards.  They won’t take long at all to put together.

Thanks for stopping by.  Remember each Friday to check in with our 12 Weeks of Christmas countdown.  Of course, check in before that as I will be sharing lots of other projects too. 🙂

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.

ONE LAST CHRISTMAS CARD WITH HEARTS COME HOME – AND A HAPPY CHRISTMAS!

It’s my last Christmas share today.  I made this one a couple of months ago.  So it is about time to share it with you.

This one I Cased from my friend Leonie who I think Cased it off Pinterest.  I have seen it on Pinterest anyway.  It uses the Hearts Come Home stamp set and the Hometown Greetings Edgelits.

The little houses were cut from Whisper White and adhered to a Night of Navy diecut circle.  The Circle is layered on to a Silver Foil Scallop Circle. Both are cut from the Layering Circles Framelits.  I had heat embossed Santa and his reindeers in Silver Embossing Powder too.

The Night of Navy card strip was embossed with the Softly Falling Embossing Folder and I added some Silver Foil Strips underneath the piece. After wrapping around some Silver ribbon I adhered the piece on to a Whisper White Card mat that I had heat embossed the sentiment in Silver.  It was all adhered to a Night of Navy card base.

There you have it, Christmas creating is done.  I am looking forward to packing all the Christmas stamps away and now turn to the new Occasions Catalogue.  I can’t wait to play with some fun new products coming out.  Watch this space for more.

For now, I wish you a very Happy Christmas.  Thanks for stopping by.  I hope however you spend Christmas the time is full of happiness and joy.  Perhaps you can take time to remember the greatest gift we have received – and it is not found under the tree.  It is one of Hope and Grace so freely given to us.

Christmas blessings to you and yours,

Love Jenny x
