BRUSHO LONG WEEKEND DAY 3 – A SPECKLED BUTTERFLY!

I think this is my favourite card.  I really like how it turned out.  Can I say that??  Sometimes I am hesitant to say that about something I have made.  But I like the effect of it and I have to say it is just chance really.  When you use these Brusho Crystals you don’t know how it will work.

The butterfly is from A Beautiful Day set.  For the sentiment I masked the first word in the sentiment from the set to just stamp the “thinking of you” and heat embossed it in white.

To find out how to create this effect I have a video for you.

So what are your thoughts on the Brusho Crystals?  Have you tried them?  Do you think now you might give them a go?  Let me know what you think.  I would love to hear.

Just a reminder that my 15% off the Brusho Crystals ends at 8pm tonight. If you want to grab them and save money on then just drop me a comment or email me and I will get that sorted for you.  Included is an information sheet to help you use your set of Brushos.  I hope you will give them a try.  I don’t think it is the last you will see of these from me.

Thanks for joining me in this.  I hope you have had a great weekend.

STAMPIN’ DREAMS BLOG HOP – IT’S A LOVE THEME!

We are back with the Stampin’  Dreams Blog Hops for 2018.  We start off the year with a Love theme.  You might have come from the super, talented Juana’s Blog or starting here with me.  Either way, enjoy the Hop.

I don’t do a lot of  “lovey dovey” stuff and don’t usually do anything for Valentine’s Day but lately I have had to do a lot of wedding and engagement cards so maybe this Hop would be a good one for me. 🙂

For my project I have created a “love” Panel card and Gift Card Holder.  

I just received the Bubbles and Fizz Designer Series Paper which is a Free choice for Sale-A-Bration.  I noticed in the pack this sheet with the circled hearts in Calypso Coral so I thought I would use that.  It looked pretty cool! The Panel card idea was inspired by a card from a recent papercrafts Magazine.  I thought it was a little bit different to the standard card.

Here is a closer view of it.  The middle section of the base card is cut off and a separate card mat adhered to the front.  I will give you details to make your own further below.

I added the hearts from the Sunshine Wishes Thinlits in Calypso Coral and Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Paper.  It needed something else when I had finished so I added a little bow with the Calypso Coral Sheer Ribbon.

The Gift Card holder is created with the Envelope Punch Board with the Gift Card size and scoring instructions on the board (the first one listed).  I added a strip of the Designer Series paper around it.  Just a note on that:  As the card holder is made in card it is a little thicker so the flap can’t tuck in to the envelope without  squishing it.  So I just left it open.   The “for you” is from the Mini Treat Bag Thinlits.

CREATE YOUR OWN PANEL CARD.

– Cut a standard size Card base.  From the front panel cut a piece off the front at 3cm (1 1/4″) down from the front score line.  On the piece you cut off, cut a piece off that at 3cm (1 1/4″).  **NB: For Imperial do check the measurements.  Basically you are cutting off a section down from the top of the fold line and then cutting a piece of that cut off section the same measurements.  You can vary the measurements to however you like.

– Make the panel piece the size you like.  This piece, the Calypso Coral mat measures 8cm x 12.3cm (3 1/8″ x 4 7/8″).  The Designer Series Paper piece is just slightly smaller.

– To assemble the card.  Lay down the White card strip that you cut off previously.  Line it up with the bottom edge of the back of the card base.  Adhere the panel on to the top and bottom edge pieces remembering to only place adhesive at the top and bottom at the back of the card mat for the panel.  I hope that makes sense. 🙂


NOW CONTINUE TO HOP

Now you can continue on your way around the Blog Hop to see the other “Love” projects.   Head on your way to Alejandra’s Blog -> HERE.  (I can’t add the list of participants on my hop as I have a WordPress blog but you shouldn’t get lost, just keep following the links on other blog posts).

Enjoy,

Jenny

NOW FOR MORE PARTY PANDAS!

I showed the Peekaboo Pandas in last post.  Let me say first, they have had a huge response over on Pinterest.  Lots seems to love those cute guys.  As I was making that card I was lining up the inside pandas in the wrong place.  I didn’t want to waste them as they were still OK.  Just not for the projects I was making.  So I have made up a couple more cards.  I will show you this one and then stop by again next post and I will show you the other one.

I coloured the balloon and the envelope with the Stampin’ Blends and the hat was coloured with the Stampin’ Write markers.  

I added some Calypso Coral Sheer Ribbon and the sentiment was stamped on Daffodil Delight and punched with the Classic Label Punch and also punched in Calypso Coral and Basic Black card and layered together.  Haha! I think it is the cute expressions on these guys that melt the heart do you think?

Enough from me today.  Thanks for the visit.  Enjoy the rest of your day.

HEDGEHUGS WITH THE STAMPARATUS!

I have been playing with new products the last few days.  I am loving this new set Hedgehugs coming out in the new Occasions Catalogue on January 3rd.  I think you will love it too.

I have recently got the Stamparatus and have used that to stamp this so all the images are evenly spaced.

Today I put together a video showing how to use the Stamparatus for this.  It’s a different type of video.  I spent the last 2 days to put together one and it just wasn’t happening.  What do you think of this format.  Would you like to see more of this type or would you like the traditional type of videos?  Do let me know.  The video is below. (Please note: If you are receiving this post by email subscription the video might not show up so head directly to the blog post by clicking on the post title above).

If you missed the card size for the Whisper White on the video here are the measurements again.

Metric       14.8cm x 7cm.

Imperial   5 1/2″ x 2 3/4″.

Hope that is helpful.

Other details on the card:

Paper:  Sweet Soiree Specialty Designer Series Paper, Old Olive card base.

Ink: Berry Burst, Old Olive, Marina Mist.

Other: Whisper White Organza Ribbon.

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. 🙂
