CAROLS OF CHRISTMAS – DAY 5!

DAY 5

Today’s project is actually a gift box.  It is always good to have little boxes to fill with chocolates or treats.  This is not a new box for me but I will give you the instructions shortly.

I created the sentiment the same way as I did on the card from yesterday.  You can go back to that post to check it out if you like.  This box was just the right size to add the die cut frame on the top of the box.  The ornaments on the side was added as an afterthought.  It needed something there.  I probably should have thought of that before I assembled the box.  So stamping on this afterwards was a little stressful.  I held a clear block to the back of the panel when I stamped – and held my breath. That is an important stamping requirement you know. 😉  It turned out well not just once but twice.  I was so lucky!!

To make the box:

I designed this box a few years ago now.  You can find the Original post with the instructions in Metric and Imperial on this post HERE. 

Here is the card and the box together to see what a great pair they make. Funky for Christmas do you think?? 🙂

CAROLS OF CHRISTMAS – DAY 2!

DAY 2

This card was actually the first card I made using the Carols of Christmas set. I have to be  honest though I am not too sure of it.  I didn’t want to hit you with this one first.  (you might not come back!!)  Anyway, it’s a different style for me.

I have seen a lot of the loopy ribbon and sequin trim behind a sentiment or image block.  I thought I would try that effect.  This is the retired Gold trim.  I don’t have the current mini sequin trim.  I am really not sure of this look though. What are your thoughts??

The sentiment is Heat Embossed in Gold for a little shine.  I matted it on the Gold paper from the Eastern Palace Specialty Designer Series Paper and added a little colour with the mini ornaments in Tranquil Tide, Real Red, and Dapper Denim.

IT’S ALL WEDDINGS!

Last week I had a big week making wedding cards.  I had 8 to make all up.  Two were for a family wedding last week and one for a family friend and then Josh has 5 weddings coming up.  Yes, 5!

So I thought I would share them with you.  The lighting is not great for these.  Sorry but I hope it gives you a good idea.

This first one uses the retired Bundle of Love DSP. I had a small piece left which I thought would work a treat AND one last little embellishment.  The card base is Sahara Sand.  The sentiment is from Rose Wonder.  The ribbon is the Very Vanilla Satin ribbon retired also. I cut a leaf spray in Sahara Sand and in Vellum. This was for our nephew’s wedding.

This one I made for my Mother In Law to give our nephew (her grandson) as she was unwell to make a card.  The hearts are from Sunshine Wishes cut from Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Paper and Rich Razzleberry card. The sentiment and the little swirly flourishes are from Floral Phrases.  The main colour is Rich Razzleberry and I used some Rich Razzleberry Cotton ribbon (retired).

I made a couple of these ones below in Sweet Sugarplum using Sunshine Wishes and Floral Phrases again. This time the sentiment is from Rose Wonder.  I have used the retired Sweet Sugarplum Ruched Ribbon.

These next 2 I made the same.  I made 2 in Island Indigo and 2 in Crumb Cake. These cards were inspired by an idea on Pinterest.

To create this card:

I cut the flower (from the Rose Garden Thinlits) from the Whisper White card and then embossed it with the Softly Falling Embossing Folder. This piece was adhered to the card mat (Crumb Cake or Island Indigo.  Then I adhered the Die cut flower on to the card and adhered the whole piece to the Thick Whisper White card base.  I cut a leaf spray from Crumb Cake (or Island Indigo) and also with Vellum.  The sentiment is from Rose Wonder set.   On these I added a little bow with either the White  Baker’s Twine or Linen Thread.

Perhaps Linen Thread is not considered very elegant for weddings but based on a number of the invitations that Josh has received they are quite often very rustic in the crumb cake colour or with doilies and/or tied up with twine. So I think these were well suited.

Hope they inspire you for your next wedding cards.  These will get me by for a couple of months!!

Have a great day,

Jenny

 

 

A SPECIAL CARD IN A BOX!

I know we’re in the midst of the all the excitement with the new catalogue but I just have to share this project.  I know it is using retired products now but I thought you might still like to see it.

A couple of weeks ago a friend of mine asked me to make a special baby card for her new grandchild.  At that time she didn’t know what the gender was and requested it to be Teal Green in colour with splashes of red. I knew the family as well so I wanted it to be pretty special.  I recreated a card in a box that I made some time ago.  You can see that original project HERE. That card in a box has been repinned 3.3K times on Pinterest so I thought it might just be “good enough”. 🙂

The only paper I had to match the Bermuda Bay card was this retired paper.  I can’t even remember the name of it.  I just found a few scraps of it in my retired paper box. Lucky!!!

I dug out my ‘Something For Baby’ set too from my retired box.  That was lucky too as I don’t have any new baby stamps as yet.

So enough of the chatter.  Here it is.

I used Watermelon Wonder which matched. (Grabbed that out of the retired box too!).

I realised I didn’t get a photo of the left side flap.  That had little booties in Crushed Curry and I tied teeny, tiny bows in White Baker’s Twine.  The sentiment is from ‘Baby Bear’ – yes! That is current! I probably could have used that but Baby Bear was a bit big for the box.

Well it was very well received and I can tell you that baby Phoebe arrived safely last week.  She is very gorgeous and they were all delighted and fascinated in the card.  It can be displayed on the shelf in the nursery for some time to come.

Thanks for indulging me.  Back to current products in next post.

ESAD BLOG HOP WITH THE EASTERN PALACE SUITE!

Thank you for joining us on the ESAD Eastern Palace Suite Blog Hop.  I have already been sharing some cool projects with this suite this past week and I am excited to share this one with you too.

This project is a cute Tag and matching Envelope.  I will share the details on how to make it further below. It’s a bit hard to photograph with the shiny Gold Foil.  Sorry for the shine.

CREATING THE MINI TAG AND ENVELOPE.

THE ENVELOPE

1. Cut the envelope from the Mini Treat Bag Thinlits with the Eastern Palace Specialty Designer Series Paper.  Before you assemble the envelope be sure to cut the circle window in the front panel with the Layering Circles Framelits.

2. Cut the circled strip in Gold Foil using the Thinlits in the Mini Treat Bag Thinlits set.  The little flower on the front strip is cut from one of the small Thinlits in the Eastern Medallion Thinlits set in Gold Foil and Dapper Denim.  

3. The “flowery” diecut in the centre is from the Eastern Medallions Thinlits set.  It comes out attached to your card with the diecut outline. You can snip off the tiny sections where it is attached.  I then used one of the Layering Circle Framelits to cut out the centre of this piece and also cut the circle in the Treat Bag BEFORE  it is assembled as mentioned further above.

THE TAG

When you pull the tag out it reveals the stamped piece that you could see through the window of the bag.

1. On a piece of Very Vanilla card [measurements are 8.4cm x 12cm – (3 3/8″ x 4 3/4″)] stamp the smaller images from the ‘Eastern Beauty’ stamp set in Dapper Denim. At the bottom heat emboss in gold the “flourishy” image. Add a matching strip of DSP along the bottom.

2.Heat emboss the circle image from the ‘Eastern Beauty’ stamp set in gold onto  a small piece of Very Vanilla card. Then heat embossed the sentiment in the centre.  To do this first ink the stamp in Versamark and then ink in Dapper Denim ink before stamping on the card. Pour over your Clear Embossing Powder and heat.

3. Cut the stamped circle with the Layering Circle Framelits.  Layer this circle on to a Gold Foil Scallop Circle which is a larger size of Scallop than the circle in the Layering Circle Framelits. Raise them up off the card with Dimensionals.  Layer this Very Vanilla tag on to a piece of Dapper Denim card [measurements are 8.8cm x 12.4cm – (3 1/2″ x 4 7/8″)]  Then add a piece of Dapper Denim Ruched Ribbon at the top and a small Gold “flowery” diecut over it. To finish add an Adhesive pearl to the centre of the flower and one on the circle sentiment.

4. For the reverse of the tag cut a piece of Very Vanilla card the same size as the piece on the front of the tag. (measurements above).  Stamp the corner images again and repeat the DSP strip at the bottom and the Gold Embossed “flourish”.

If you haven’t seen this great suite yet then below is the stamp set and the thinlits.  How many different ways can you use these Thinlits?? I will show you in a post soon.

    

You can see more about this suite in store HERE.

A SOFTER POOL PARTY FOR EASTERN PALACE!

While I am waiting for my new Incolors to arrive I thought I would play with some different colours with the Eastern Palace suite.  This time I have gone for a softer colour combination of Pool Party, Smoky Slate and Island Indigo.

This card was inspired by a home decor framed piece by Kerstin HERE.

This suite is SO versatile! I can’t believe how many different ways you can use this.  I have mainly used the Eastern Beauty stamp set here and just the “flowery” shape die and the small centre piece using the Eastern Medallions Thinlits.  After I cut the “flowery” pieces, I curled them a little with my Bone Folder and then raised them up with the Dimensionals.

So something a little different with them.

Thanks for stopping by,

Jenny
