PERENNIAL POPPY!

I made this card sometime ago.  Just being able to share it with you now.

I wanted to show the Diecut pattern background and see how it looked.  I will say.  I’m not sure on this one BUT I’m putting it out here for you. 🙂

I have used the Poppy Moments dies.  The background was diecut on the Balmy Blue card and the leaves stamped over it.

The Piece was layered on to a piece of the Perennial Essence Designer Series Paper for a subtle effect.

I diecut the poppy.  On the white piece I sponged some Flirty Flamingo ink on  the centre.

The sentiment was diecut with the Stitched So Sweetly Dies.

I hope that this card gives you some inspiration.

The Poppy Moments Dies are carrying over in to the new catalogue.  Buy them now as a Bundle with the Peaceful Moments stamp set so you can save 10%.

See and order in my store >HERE.

For the next week I have a special gift with your orders.

Have a great weekend.

SOME SPECIAL CUSTOMER THANK YOU CARDS!

I can show you these cards now.  Recently I made these Thank You cards for a special group of customers.  This group has been with me for 10 years now supporting me, encouraging me and attending my events.  I wanted to mark the special occasion.

I made a couple of different variations but using similar products.

Paper: Perennial Essence Designer Series Paper,

Card: Whisper White, Flirty Flamingo, Petal Pink, Calypso Coral, Balmy Blue.

Stamps: Butterfly Gala, Magnolia Blooms.

Inks: Balmy Blue, Granny Apple Green, Flirty Flamingo, Daffodil Delight,

Dies: Stitched Rectangles Dies, Stitched Nested Dies.

Other: Butterfly Duet Punch, Adhesive Rhinestones, Adhesive Pearls.

I wanted to tell you how I created the butterflies.  I stamped the butterflies from the Butterfly Gala stamp set on white card.  Before I punched them out I sponged over them.  Firstly with a colour in the centre and then around the outside with another colour.  The butterflies were all different colours. I punched them out with the Butterfly Duet Punch. To add some highlights I sponged around the edge of the butterfly with the colour I used on the outer edges.

I really appreciate these lovely group of ladies.  They changed the direction of my business and continue to support me.  They have become lovely friends.

Now let me just take this opportunity to thank each and everyone of you.  Thanks for all your support, your comments when you can, your pinning and Thanks for visiting my corner of Blog land.  It’s because of you I post often hoping to inspire you.  I hope I do that.  Thanks for your support.

I’m looking forward to a new year of creating and sharing.

Happy Stamping,

Jenny

WEDNESDAY’S WOW! #75 – PRETTY PERENNIAL ESSENCE!

Wednesday’s WOW! #75.  Today is something pretty.  I have recently discovered the Perennial Essence Designer Series Paper.  It is so pretty.  I thought we would have a closer look at it as the photos in the catalogue really don’t show it enough.  I will look closer at this suite at a later date but you really need to see the gorgeousness of this paper.

Let’s catch this video.

Now this paper looks like hand-painted prints – and it is!  One of the product designers who designed this paper was so inspired by the works of Monet when she visited New York that she was inspired to create “Monet-esque paper for Stampin’ Up! Designer Series Paper.  It is truly gorgeous.

Here are some creations using this paper by Stampin’ Up! artists.

I love the colours used in this paper.  They are: Balmy Blue, Blackberry Bliss, Blueberry Bushel, Calypso Coral, Crushed Curry, Flirty Flamingo, Mossy Meadow, Old Olive, Petal Pink, So Saffron and Whisper White.

What do you think of this paper?  You don’t need too much more to your card or your project with this paper.  Just add a sentiment and maybe some ribbon.  It looks gorgeous framed too.

You can see it in store now -> HERE.
