WEDNESDAY’S WOW! COLOURING OVER EMBOSSING!

This project for today’s Wednesday’s WOW! is a card we made at class a couple of weeks ago using the Stampin’ Blends. I thought it might be a good technique to share with you.

I have used the Lift Me Up set and heat embossed it with white embossing powder and then coloured it with the Blends markers.

Do you want to see how to do this? 

I haven’t done a video as yet but I have an earlier tutorial from some time ago using the Blendablilities.  They work the same way.  To find out head -> HERE to see the blog post.

Happy Colouring!

BEACHY LITTLE CHRISTMAS WEEK!

The weather is warming up here and it is Summer this week.  I thought it’s time to share some Beachy Little Christmas cards for you that I have been making over the last few weeks.

Here is the first one.  I think this is my favourite one.

I heat embossed the shells and the sentiment with Gold Embossing Powder on to Thick Whisper White card base. The shell sentiment is from the Beachy Little Christmas set and the “Merry Christmas” is from Star of Light set.  The white squares are cut with the Stitched Shapes Framelits and then I cut gold squares from the Layering Squares Framelits.

I wrapped around some Gold Thread before layering it on white card layered on a Gold Foil Sheet mat. I think the gold makes it classy.

Thanks for stopping by,

WATCH IT WEDNESDAY #9 – THOSE HIDDEN STITCHED SHAPE FRAMELITS!

For today’s episode of Watch It Wednesday I want to share a  product that sometimes gets missed in the catalogue.  Every time I use these in class my class members are amazed.  Where had these been hiding all the time?? So I wondered if you had really discovered these yourself.

Today let’s look at the Stitched Shapes Framelits.

I think these Framelits are great and I do use them all the time.  They give an extra dimension around your shape without being too fussy.  What do you think of them?  You need them in your stamping supplies for sure.

Here are a couple of cards that I have used them on.

Thanks for visiting.

ESAD 2017 HOLIDAY CATALOGUE BLOG HOP WITH FANCY FOLDS OR 3D!

Today’s Blog Hop with ESAD (that is Extra Special Australasian Demonstrators  – We are all pretty special though!), is focusing on creating a Fancy Fold or a 3D project using products from the 2017 Holiday Catalogue.  You would have just come from the very talented Sue’s blog HERE. 

I love a Fun Fold card so I was keen to take part in this Blog Hop.  Today I have made what I call a ‘LATCH FOLD’.  It could be called a Buckle Fold as I have been investigating but there is no slit that the flap tucks in to so I will still call it a Latch Fold. 🙂

I have used the Snowflake Sentiments stamp set found on page 35 of the Holiday Catalogue and my favourite Christmas colour combinations of Island Indigo and Pool Party.

The “Merry Christmas” sentiment is heat embossed in silver to add some sparkle.  It was cut with the Layering Circle Framelits and then raised up with Dimensionals on an Island Indigo circle cut with the Stitched Shapes Framelits and then this was raised up on a Silver Foil circle cut with a scallop in the Layering Circle Framelits.  Before adhering it to the card I looped around some Silver Thread.  The snowflake is from the Seasonal Layers Thinlits cut from Silver Foil too. To make that stand out I punched a circle from Island Indigo with the 3/4″ circle punch.

Here is the inside.  I added a strip of Pool Party card which I had embossed with the Softly Falling Embossing Folder.

Do you want to make one yourself??

Stop by tomorrow I have made another Latch Fold card and I will share the instructions then.

For now you need to get hopping again. This time you are off to the lovely talented Nicole’s blog -> HERE.

If you get lost on your Hop then here is a list of all the participants for you to join in anywhere.

A FLAP FOLD DAISY CARD!

This card I am showing you today was actually the first card I made with the Daisy Delight Bundle.  Usually my first couple of cards with a new set I turn to Pinterest and CASE a card.  I liked the idea of this card.  It is a Flap fold card.  Just a little different to the standard card.  I CASED it from Janet’s blog HERE.  I will give you the measurements shortly.  Janet has just the imperial measurements for her card but I will give you the Metric as well as the Imperial. First I guess you want to see the card.

Isn’t the Delightful Daisy Designer Series Paper just gorgeous??  On the top flap I stamped the Daisy in Calypso Coral twice and punched them out.  They were layered together and off-set slightly.  The centre was stamped in Pool Party and punched with the 1/2″ circle punch. I stamped the leaves in Old Olive for the outline and the solid image.  These were hand cut. The Daisy was then layered on a circle cut with the Layering Circle Framelits in Pool Party and then a larger one with the Stitched Shapes Framelits.  

The sentiment is from the Happy Birthday Gorgeous set. I made a discovery when I cut the sentiment out using the Straight banner die from the Bunch of Banners Framelits.  I cut the white card which I had stamped the sentiment on and it had left the centre where that was stamped but also a banner frame. So I cut another Banner in Calypso Coral to create a frame.  Cool trick!

Here is the inside of the card.  Just a simple “happy birthday” from the Happy Birthday Gorgeous set.

I think I have to make some more of these cards.  Do you want to make one?  Here is how.

FLAP FOLD CARD

Metric: Cut an A4 sheet of card lengthways in half.  This will measure 29.7cm x 10.5cm.  Score on the long side at 10.5cm and 14cm.

Imperial:  Cut standard card lengthways to measure 11″ x 4.25″.  Score at 2″ and 7.5″.

Your Designer Series Paper pieces for the front panels are cut just slightly smaller.

Thanks for visiting.  Have a great weekend,

Jenny

DAFFODIL DAISY DELIGHT!

I realised I hadn’t shown you all my Delightful Daisy cards.  I started sharing them a couple of weeks ago but then there was something about a new catalogue coming out …:)

So I shall show you a few over the next couple of posts.

Today’s card is so bright and sunshine-y.  I love the gorgeous Delightful Daisy Designer Series Paper. The prints are so lovely.

This was the first time I had used the small flowers from the Daisy Delight stamp set.  I cut the circle from Stitched Shapes Framelits first so I could see where to position the flowers. The flower outline image and the filler image was stamped in Daffodil Delight and the stems were stamped in Old Olive.  I cut a scallop circle using the Layering Circle Framelits in Silver Foil.

The sentiment is from Butterfly Basics stamped on to Daffodil Delight card mat which was then embossed with the Softly Falling Embossing Folder.

So happy and bright.

Thanks for looking,

Jenny

 

MORE 6″x6″ TREAT HOLDERS!

Yesterday I showed you some more Z-fold cards and they had little treat holders.  I thought I would share with you how to make those particular ones.

Firstly, the Dapper Denim Napkin fold.

These are one of the easiest, quickest treat holder you could possibly make.  I used to make them a lot when I was younger but had forgotten about them until recently.  They are a good size to fit a small chocolate treat in.  Here is how to make them.

Of course, you can make these any size you like.  The principal is the same.  Just be sure that your paper is square.

For this particular version I used the Color Theory paper stack in which the piece measures 6″x6″ (15.2cm x 15.2cm).

NAPKIN FOLD TREAT HOLDER

1. Fold your paper piece in half diagonally.

2.  With the fold towards you, take the left hand corner and fold it to about the mid point on the paper on the opposite side.  See the photo below to see what I mean.

3. Fold the right hand corner so it overlaps the last fold and for the point to reach the mid point on the opposite side.  Place a little adhesive behind the folds to help it stay closed.

4. Take the top point and fold just one layer down over the 2 folds. Place adhesive behind it to keep it closed.

Add a tag or embellishment as you like.  For this version, I used the Dapper Denim marker over just the “smile” word in one of the sentiments from the Colorful Seasons set.  Cut that with the Stitched Oval Framelits.  I stamped a few snowflakes on to the piece too and finished it off by cutting some “snowflake” embellishments from the Layered Seasons Thinlits.

OLD OLIVE MINI BOX

This little mini box is so cute.  You could fit a lipstick or lip balm in it or a small chocolate.  The finished size measures 7cm Wide (2 3/4″),  3.2cm Deep (1 1/4″) and 2.2cm Height (7/8″).

This was made with the Envelope Punch Board.  When I went back to find the tutorial for this I couldn’t seem to find it.  I am sure I used the one by my lovely friend Tanya HERE.  When I made it up again though it was slightly longer.  The tutorial at that link is a paid Tutorial for lots of different sized boxes with the Envelope Punch Board, but for $2 it is not a bad purchase. 🙂  Have a look on Pinterest though for a few other versions.  There are larger ones but I was in keeping with the 6″x6″ paper.

So here are the 4 little treat holders made just with a piece of 6″x6″ paper.  There are so many others too but it is amazing what you can make with such a small piece.

Enjoy,

Jenny

 

CLEAR BUNNY BOX FOR EASTER!

Easter is this weekend. Are you all sorted?? I had these little Lindt chocolate bunnies left over from class last week and wanted to make a special box for them.  I will show you what I created and I have the tutorial below to make your own.

It’s a little shallow box with a clear Acetate lid on top.  I realised one of the bunnies was a bit squashed but hey! I went with it still!! 🙂

TO MAKE YOUR OWN CLEAR BUNNY BOX

I have included Metric and Imperial but please check the Imperial measurements first. 🙂

Base:

15.4cm x 5.4cm. (6 1/8″ x 2 1/8).

Score at 1.2cm (1/2″) on all 4 sides.

Cut up on the small score lines on opposite ends.  Fold on all the scored lines. Add adhesive.  I used Fast Fuse.  Assemble your box.

Lid: 

*For Imperial measurements please test them first.

17cm x 14cm (6 3/4″ x 5 1/2″)

On the 17cm (6 3/4″) side score at 2cm and 15cm (1 3/16″and 5 7/8″)

On the 14cm side (5 1/2″) side score at  5.5cm and 8.5cm (2 3/16″ and 3 3/8″).

*Apologies for the photo quality.  It is a bit hard with the lighting and the shiny acetate.

Cut up on the small score lines on each side.  Fold on the score lines.  The acetate is hard to fold over but run along the folded line with your bone folder to press it down. Add your adhesive to the small tab at the side and down one of the side tabs.  Adhere together to form a box.

Hope that is clear?? Decorate as you like.

I wrapped around some Sweet Sugarplum Ruched ribbon, then decorated it with the diecut flower with the Stylish Stems Framelits.  The sentiment is from the Little Cuties set, cut with the Stitches Shapes Framelits and a small Layering Ovals Framelits.  I actually had these little “bits” on my desk from a project I didn’t end up using so that worked well.

I hope you like the cute box?? There is just enough time to make your own.

LAST DAY FOR STITCHED SHAPES AND 25% OFF!

Can you believe it is the end of November?? Going way too fast!

I received my Stitched Shapes Framelits a couple of weeks ago and had some time to create with them.  One of the cards I made was a special card to say HI to some new customers who I have met recently.  I thought I would show you.

stitched-circle-hello

The base card is Watermelon Wonder.  It is a bit hard to tell in the photo. It’s been a while since I have used the set Kinda Eclectic.  You can’t tell on this but I added a little Wink of Stella sparkle on the butterfly. I also dusted off the Hello You Thinlits. The white card mat was embossed with the Brick Wall Embossing Folder.
