FLOWERING FOILS FLOWERS!

I have been sharing some projects with the Flowering Foils Specialty Designer Series Paper.  Here is another one for you.  This one uses 2 of the prints in the pack.

The flowers were coloured with the Stampin’ Blends. The flowers on the paper are embossed in Rose Gold and in Silver so the ink resists the outline.   I fussy cut the flowers out to add them to the card.  I used the lined print for the mat on the card.

The sentiment is from the Positive Thoughts stamp set.  It is heat embossed in white Embossing Powder. The black card looks striking against the paper.

Notice the ends of the black strip? To create these I punched them with the Tailored Tag Punch.  Feed the end of the strip in to the punch from the back where the window is.  This way you can see that it is straight before you punch it out.  I found that the angles were quite long so I trimmed them slightly.  You can leave them long if you like that.  I added some Adhesive Pearls to finish it.

Hope you like it.

The Flowering Foils Designer Series Paper is available as a Free Sale-A-Bration choice with your order over $90.  Be sure the grab some soon before it goes. You can order in my store now.  Head to the link shown just below.

Have a great week ahead.

WEDNESDAY’S WOW! #97 – NATURE’S THOUGHTS DIES!

Wednesday’s WOW! #97 – Today I thought we need to take a closer look at the Nature’s Thoughts Dies.  These are a hidden gem and I have had so many comment lately about where the dies are from when I have used them.  Perhaps you have missed them yourself.

These dies co-ordinate with the Positive Thoughts stamp set in the Mini Catalogue.  They have recently been released as part of the Co-ordination products.  

I have die-cut them out so you can see them closer.

What I love particularly is the “dotted” frame die and the little flourish strip.  All the dies are great though. What about the largest feather? It has embossed lines on it which is really cool.

This card below I shared recently uses both the frame and the flourish strip.

This is the Positive Thoughts stamp set that these dies co-ordinate with.   The words are lovely in this set too.  I think these are a “Must-have” in your collection.

 

You can find these dies in my store now -> HERE.  Don’t miss them. You need them for your collection.

If ordering online please use the Host Code: MJMPAFFR.  After your order I will email out to you your free Project Tutorial Bundle available for this month.  This includes 12 projects using different Stampin’ Up! products.

Have a great day,

FLOWERING FOILS FAVOURITE FOR SALE-A-BRATION 2ND RELEASE!

Today is the 2nd release for Sale-A-Bration.  As if you didn’t have enough choices right!

You can see all the items in the catalogue -> HERE.

Of course there are some great choices.  I have to say though my favourite is the Flowering Foils Designer Series Paper.

We have had similar paper in past years.  These are just (if not more) as gorgeous.

There are 12 12″x 12″ white sheets with embossed designs in Rose Gold and Silver.  There are 4 designs and 3 of each sheet.

You can leave them plain or colour them with a sponge/dauber or with the Stampin’ Blends.

This is one of the cards I created with the paper coloured with the Stampin’ Blends.  I have used the Balmy Blue and coloured the background then used the Daffodil Delight for the flower centres.

The sentiment is from the Positive Thoughts stamp set.  Such lovely words.  I had the vellum diecut from the Flourishes Dies left over from another project and it worked well with this.

It’s hard to tell in the photo but I have used the ornate die strip from the Nature’s Thoughts Dies. You can see it better in the photo below.

These projects are created by Stampin’ Up! artists but it shows how pretty the paper is sponged.

So how do you get yourself some of this Flowering Foils paper??

It’s available free as part of Sale-A-Bration with orders over $90 AUD until the end of March.  

In Australia?  Head to my store now -> HERE and shop for your stamps, ink paper.  When your order totals over $90 you can select this as your free item.

There are other choices too and other options for over $180 too.  Don’t miss them.

Happy Shopping – and creating. 🙂

Have a great day,

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.
