SOME FAVOURITE CARDS FROM 2017!

It’s the end of another year.  I have to say I have really enjoyed my stamping this year.  I have tried some new techniques and got involved in some challenges.  It’s been fun!

I thought I would look back at some of my favourite projects from this past year.  Now I did think I would pick one from each month but it was getting too hard.  So I have just picked a few.  If you click on the title you can see more details of the project.

** Apologies in advance: lots of photos. 🙂

Delicate Details Dragonfly

I think the Delicate Details stamp set was my favourite for Sale-A-Bration for 2017.

Multi Stamping for the boys cards

The Nailed It set was great for the boys cards earlier this year.

Carousel Birthday Bendi Card

I have wanted to make a Bendi for a long time so it was great to finally make one.  I must make another one again soon.

Flower Box 

This was the most popular class for the year.

LAST DAY TOMORROW FOR PAPER AND FOR MERRY PATTERNS!

End of October tomorrow.  Yikes! That is scary how quickly the year is speeding by.  I wanted to let you know though that tomorrow is the last day for these Stampin’ Up! specials.

Yes! If you want to grab the free pack of Designer Series Paper with the purchase of 3 then you better be quick.

Here are the ones that are available just to remind you.

Here are the papers again to see them.

You can order them in store HERE.  Choose your 3 then you can add your 4th one for free!  Ordering Online?? Please use the Host Code: BRE396PY

OR to order you can contact me directly.

While we are talking paper.  I hadn’t shown you this cute card with the Delightful Daisy DSP that is one of the listed papers.

This card was inspired by Marcy Denning on Pinterest.

Just a little strip of the Delightful Daisy Paper, one happy piggy coloured with the Aquapainters and ink and a few loopy threads.  One Happy Card I think. 🙂

———————

Another quick reminder too, the stamp set Merry Patterns is only available for one more day Receive it free with a minimum $450 party order (or maybe you need to stock up big!) 🙂  I have had fun playing with this set these past 2 months.  It’s sad to see it go.

This is one of the cards we made at my Stamp A Stack class on Friday.  This was inspired by a couple of different cards on Pinterest.  Gotta love that Pinterest!! 🙂

—————————-

While these 2 specials end tomorrow I can’t wait until Wednesday when the Stampin’ Blends alcohol markers are available for you to order.  I have had fun playing with these the past couple of weeks so stay tuned for them later.

“See” you soon,

MERRY PATTERNS HALF FOLD CARD!

I have had a couple of great classes yesterday and today.  Lots of fun and chatter and creating.  We have a good time at class.  If you are local you will just have to come sometime.

These are the cards we made.  Creating an Eclipse Christmas card with Carols of Christmas, a sweet one with Brightly Lit and a fun Half-Fold card with Merry Patterns. Everyone loved them. 🙂

I don’t often show the “how-to” of my class cards on my blog but I wanted to show you this one.   I have seen a few Half Fold cards on Pinterest lately and wanted to try this card AND as we only have a couple of weeks left for the Merry Patterns I thought it would be good to give this an ink.

So for you to make your own here are the details.  Of course, you could substitute any stamps and paper.

CREATING A HALF FOLD CARD

1. Whether you are using the Metric or imperial measurements it doesn’t matter the idea is the same.  Take your standard base card (for this one I used Old Olive) and score at the half way mark on the long side.  (For metric the base card is 14.8cm x 21cm.  Score on the long side at 10.5).

2. On your score line cut down half way.  Then cut across on the front of the card base from where you finished your cut on the score line to the edge of the card.

3. The piece that you have cut off becomes your card mat for the front image.  Cut a piece of Whisper White just slightly smaller than the card mat. (For metric that measures 10.1cm x 7cm).

4. Cut a piece of Whisper White for the inside of your card just slightly smaller than the inside card base.

5. Stamp and Decorate your card as you like. The Designer Series Paper for this card is from the Merry Little Christmas pack.

I hope this makes sense.  Please ask if you are unsure.

Jenny

PS. Only 2 weeks left to get your Merry Patterns set with qualifying parties/orders of a minimum of $450.  Be sure to book your event soon or place your order so you can grab your set.
