STAMPIN’ DREAMS BLOG HOP – CASE THE CATALOGUE!

Today I am taking part in the Stampin’ Dreams Blog Hop where the theme is CASE THE CATALOGUE.  I have to say first off I am a little excited to be a part of this Blog Hop, but I am a little daunted too. Have you seen the amazing line up in this Hop??  WOW!  How exciting to be a part of it! I hope you enjoy our little hop.

You would have just done a BIG jump from the US from the lovely Debbie Henderson’s blog HERE or just starting out on my blog.

Now CASE THE CATALOGUE.  Do you realise how many gorgeous projects are in this catalogue?  Where do you start?

I decided since I am focusing on Christmas in July this month I will CASE one from the Christmas section.  I chose the card in the top right on P 118.

This is my card.

I created the card on a Thick Whisper White base.  The Designer Series Paper is from the Delightful Daisy pack.  The colour in this pack is actually Old Olive but I think the Pear Pizzazz that I used goes well with the lighter colourings in the paper.  I used the Holly Berry Happiness stamp set and the Holly Berry Builder Punch. This is a great stamp set if you don’t like colouring.  It is a 2 step one so it has the outline and the solid stamp to in-fill.  Adds colour so easily.  🙂

To stamp the wreath it is easier if you draw a circle in pencil on to your card first.  I traced around one of the Layering Circle Framelits and then you can stamp up your image around it. It is easy to see being in Photopolymer. Then just erase your pencil circle out. You can add the red berries in after.

The sentiment is stamped on a Pear Pizzazz card strip and then I flagged the ends.  I stamped and punched out the holly and check out the large red berries.  I am not sure if you can see in the photo below but I went over the berries with the Fine Tip Adhesive and left it to dry.  This adds a little shine to your berries.

The catalogue is a great resource for inspiration.  I always forget to look at it when I am stuck. What about you?  We should turn to it more often. 🙂

Now to continue the Hop you are off to Carolina’s blog HERE. Thanks for visiting me.

A GRUNGE 21ST BIRTHDAY CARD!

It’s my gorgeous boy’s 21st Birthday today. It’s crazy to think it is here. I have been feeling a little emotional this past week. It seems not that long ago he was a preschooler.  I am  proud of him but also very Thankful for the young man he is but still I don’t like it when they seem to grow up way too quickly. 😦

Anyway, I thought you might like to see the card I made him. This is with a retired set Grunge Rock. It’s a great set for those boys cards.

The numbers from the Large Numbers Thinlits were cut from Copper Foil Sheets.  The card mat and some stamping is Dapper Denim. The background dots are from Timeless Textures set and stamped in Soft Suede. This colour is a good match with the Copper.

The circle image is stamped in Soft Suede on scrap white card and punched out with the 1 3/8″ circle punch. It is raised up with Dimensionals after I added a few loops of Copper thread.

Although this is a retired set perhaps it would give you some inspiration for those masculine cards you need to do.

Thanks for looking,

Jenny

A BERRY HAPPY BIRTHDAY!

I thought I would show you one of the cards we made at Card Class last week.  I have been playing with the Happy Birthday Thinlits and Happy Birthday Gorgeous.

This card was CASED from Mary’s blog HERE.  I just didn’t add the DSP layer and kept it a little simpler.

I am loving the new Incolors.  I have used Berry Burst, Powder Pink and Lemon Lime Twist.

Thanks for visiting,

Jenny

OPEN HOUSE REVIEW AND A WALK THROUGH VIDEO!

Over the weekend I had my Open House Events for the new Catalogue.  I had some lovely ladies coming along for lots of fun and creativity.  I thought I would share some photos and a video for you.  Once again I didn’t take photos of when people are there…. I always forget that.  There is too much going on.  🙂

I just had a small display of samples but that’s OK.  Sometimes it can get a bit overwhelming when people first come along.

Firstly, the video for you.  (If you receive this post via email then head to my blog post by clicking on the Title and you should get there to view it properly)

I will share details of some of the cards I showed in the video over the next few posts but here is just a couple of still photos to share.

The Eastern Palace Suite Display.  I have shared most of these projects over the last few weeks.

Color Theory Suite.  I will share more details of these later.

New Product Display

Incolor Flower Box using the Delightful Daisy Bundle The box is made using the Wood Crate Thinlits.  This was inspired by a Demonstrator on a Facebook group I am on. The centres are the new Gold Faceted Gems.

Everyone received a Thank You Gift for coming of a little pack of Incolor ribbon and a bow, some Gold Faceted Gems and a chocolate. It was all gifted in a Wood Crate.  The flower is from the Happy Birthday Gorgeous set.

Lucky Door Prize for each event was some 6×6″Eastern Medallion paper, Easter Gold Vinyl Stickers and Gold Ribbon.

Sorry if you couldn’t make it along.  I wanted to share some of the creations with you though.  If you are local then try and come along next time.

LEMON LIME LABEL ME PRETTY!

I have been busy all week getting things ready for my Open House this weekend showcasing some lovely new products.  I will share some of these after the weekend but I shared this card on Instagram this afternoon so thought I would quickly post it here for you. (BTW: If you are on Instagram you can follow me.  Just do a search for Jenny Hayward). 🙂

I needed to make some cards using the new Label Me Pretty Bundle.  Now when I get a new stamp set I do a little searching online for samples using sets that are very similar.  So in this case I was looking at the old Chalk Talk set and a few “tags” type sets.  I couldn’t believe how many stamp sets that Stampin’  Up! have released with the word “tags” in the name.  Anyway, I came across a few older cards that inspired me through Google searches and on Splitcoaststampers.

I had this small strip from the Eastern Palace Specialty Designer Series Paper.  I just LOVE this Lemon Lime Twist paper in the pack and I couldn’t bare to throw this strip out. I sometimes keep small pieces but end up throwing them out at the end of the catalogue as I hadn’t got around to using them.   Not this time though … 🙂

This was the finished card I created.

I stamped one of the “label” sideways on white card to create a flourish effect in Lemon Lime. The strip was adhered to the card and then I tied around some Thick Black Baker’s Twine.  This was adhered to the Lemon Lime base card. Another label was stamped in Berry Burst on to the Berry Burst card and punched out with the Pretty Label Punch.   The sentiment is stamped in black on to white card and cut with a Layering Circles Framelit.   They were both raised up off the card with Dimensionals.  I added some Rhinestones to the card but still felt it was a bit plain so after a day of looking at it I very nervously stamped some leaves from the Colorful Seasons set.  I was so worried of messing it all up and getting ink everywhere at this point BUT it worked!! Phew!  I think it might have been good to sponge the edge of the card with Lemon Lime ink but I wasn’t going to bother with that at this point.

So a simple card but funny that the whole card was designed around this little strip of paper!

Thanks for stopping by,

Jenny
