SWEET SOIREE – WEDDINGS!

I am still using the gorgeous Sweet Soiree Specialty paper, and on a mission to #usethatpaper. You don’t have to store this precious paper.  It is too lovely NOT to use. 

Today it is wedding cards.  The beautiful paper which is what I think are wedding cakes on it makes very quick, special cards.

You don’t need a lot with this gorgeous paper.  I added a Silver Foil mat under the paper, a sentiment, some bling and either some Silver Thread or Silver ribbon.  The sentiment for the one at the top is from Floral Phrases.  The sentiment on the card below is from Balloon Celebrations.   

I hope you like these cards and please, #usethatpaper.

Thanks for stopping by.

SWEET SOIREE COLLAR CARD!

I have another card to share with you today using the gorgeous Sweet Soiree Specialty Designer Series Paper.  One more way that you can #usethatpaper  I am on a mission to use up my paper instead of storing it and hoping to help you in using your stash. There are some lovely, gorgeous paper to come in the new catalogue, so you need to use this paper.

I have to admit one of the dilemmas of using the gorgeous Stampin’ Up! paper is – which side do you use?? Usually there is gorgeous prints on both sides and you don’t want to cover one to show the other side.  SO, I think this fold is great as you can see both sides at once.

This card is a Collar card.  I was reminded of this card when I went looking through some older blog posts. You can see that one I made -> HERE.

I liked both sides of this piece of Sweet Soiree paper so it was nice to see both of them.

To create a Collar Card

Cut your white card slightly smaller than your card base – 4mm (1/4″ ) smaller. Cut your piece of Designer Series Paper 4mm (1/4″) smaller than the white card mat.

On your piece of Designer Series Paper, at the half way point on the right hand side, which is approximately 4.8cm.  Cut in from this point 5cm (2″).  Fold back each section from the end of the cut to the corner of the piece of paper.

Adhere this piece on to your white card and then on to the card base.  Adhere under each flap to hold them down.

Stamp the sentiment on the white section. This one is from the Waterfront set. I cut a flower from the Flourish Thinlits from Silver Foil.

Now you can see both side. 🙂

Have a great day,

SOMETHING QUICK WITH THE SWEET SOIREE PAPER!

OK, Let’s chat.  Do you have lots of pretty paper sitting in your craft stash??  I can guess you do.  It looks so nice sitting there but you are scared to cut in to it or you might be saving it for a “special” project?? Yes I know.  It is tough!

So a new catalogue is coming very soon and we will have more pretty paper to collect.  We need to use this paper we have now.

SO… Let’s use it.  I am going to be sharing some projects over the next days and weeks to USE THAT PAPER.  Will you join me??  I am sharing these projects on here and Facebook and Instagram and adding #usethatpaper  So you can join in with me.

Today’s project is using that gorgeous SweetSoireepaper.  It is so pretty and I was really hesitant to use it but really …

Anyway, here is the card.

Cut the Designer Series paper about 2cm (3/4″) shorter than you would usually.  Cut off 2.5cm (1″).  Adhere them to the Whisper White card with the smaller section at the bottom of the card.  Stamp your sentiment in the white space.  This is from the set Birthday Blossoms.  The leaf is from the Flourish Thinlits cut from Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Paper although you can’t see the sparkle too well.

ok. Go and grab some pretty paper and #usethatpaper

Have a happy, crafty weekend.

TWO 90TH BIRTHDAY!

I had the pleasure of making 2 special 90th Birthday cards the last couple of weeks.  I thought I would show you them.

This first one requested by a friend for a lovely old friend of hers.

I pulled out the Number of Years set and the Large Numbers Framelits for it.  The card was inspired by one on Pinterest.  The “90” needed something to lift it so I added a square cut with the Stitched Shapes Framelits in Copper Foil and added a few loops with the Copper Thread. The sentiment is from the Blooms and Wishes set.

This next card I sent to a special lady.  I didn’t know her but I know what a milestone 90 is and I heard she was going to be having a very quiet birthday.  I couldn’t let this special milestone slip by.

I added a piece of the Sweet Soiree Specialty DSP to a white card base.  Cut a square with the Stitched Shapes Framelits in Vellum to sit the silver “90” on.  It’s hard to adhere vellum so I added a couple of dabs with Snail Adhesive under where the numbers would sit. Then sentiment is from Happy Birthday Gorgeous.  

Two special cards for 2 lovely ladies.  I hope they had a lovely celebration in the end.

Have a wonderful week.

SILVER GABLE BOXES!

Have you seen the Silver Gable Boxes in the Occasions Catalogue?  These make really quick gift boxes in no time.

I shared in the last post the boxes I made up for the Lucky Door Prize for my launch. Head back to see those.  I made a few more up to show ideas with them.  Let me show you.

Firstly, a simple one with the Hedgehugs set.  Cute!  The paper strip is from the Eastern Palace Specialty Designer Series Paper pack.  I stamped the hedgehog in Dapper Denim and coloured the centre of the flower with the Lemon Lime Twist marker.  I added a bow with Lemon Lime Twist Mini Striped ribbon with a glue dot.

Here is another Gable Box.  This time decorated with the Sweet Soiree Specialty Designer Series Paper.

 

The sentiment is from the Birthday Blossoms set.  I love the Metallic Edge Berry Burst Ribbon.

Here is another version of the boxes.

This time I cut off the top of the Gable Box. So the handle section along the scored line.  Then created a wrap using the Sweet Soiree Specialty DSP.  I added a strip of the Berry Burst cardstock and then tied some Lemon Lime Finely Woven Ribbon.

You can grab the boxes in store now -> HERE and decorate them how you like.  They are $14 for a 12 pack.

Grab some and give a little treat to someone to brighten their day.

PARTY PANDAS PAIR!

OK, I promise this will be the last Party Pandas card for a little while.  I’m sorry.  I really love these guys.  I wanted to show you this card and then I will move on.

The stamped pandas were left overs with trying to get my Peekaboo Panda card right.  You can see that card if you head back 2 posts.  Not wanting to waste them I cut the white stamped card down.  Layered it on a Silver Glimmer Paper scalloped Square mat.  This was cut with the Layering Square Framelits.  The Old Olive card was embossed with the Brick Wall Embossing Folder.  The paper strip is from the Sweet Soiree Specialty Designer Series Paper pack.  The sentiment is punched with the Duet Banner Punch.  I wasn’t completely happy with how the sentiment looked but hey! I am trying not to dwell on things too much.  What do you think about it?

I hope you can get some Panda Action.  Don’t forget they are a free choice during Sale-A-Bration.

Have an awesome weekend.  I hope you get in some creating time for you.

THE NEW HEDGEHUGS CUTENESS!

I showed last post one of the cards I have recently made with the new Hedgehugs set.  By the way did you check out the video from that post?  I would love to know your thoughts on it.

The Hedgehugs set is very cute and I can’t wait for you to see it.  This card I am sharing today was the first card I made with the set.  I kept the card simple, but isn’t the new Sweet Soiree Specialty Designer Series Paper gorgeous??

Here is the card for you.

I raised up the cute Hedgehog with dimensionals.

Check out all the new products coming.  I am loving that Berry Burst Metallic Edge ribbon too.
