MAKING LOOPY THREADS ON CARDS!

Last month I gave away these cute Pop Up Scrap Bins for everyone who ordered from me. I made up some cute cards as Thank You’s.  The card was inspired by the Pop Up Bin itself.

Here is the bin again just for you to see.

The cards were small notecards measuring 10cm x 10cm (4″ x 4″).  The black card mat was embossed with the Lucky Stars Embossing Folder.  A Gold Foil circle was cut with the Layering Circles Framelits and then stamped in Black Stazon with the sentiment from ‘Tin of Cards’.  I looped around Gold Thread behind the circle before adhering it to the card with Dimensionals.

People have asked me several times how to make those loopy threads on the cards so when I was making this I made a video to show you.  See that below.

BOTANICALS AND TIMELESS TEXTURES!

I made this card a couple of weeks ago for our team swaps. It was a really busy time but I was determined to make some. A number of the lovely people in our team had given me swaps at the previous meeting and at Onstage and I didn’t have any so I really had to make up for it.  Although I still don’t think I made up for the lovely cards I received. 🙂

This card was CASED from a card on a Facebook group I am on.  Yes, I was in a hurry and didn’t have time to think for myself.  I loved the idea though of teaming two of my favourite products and with one of my favourite colours.

I have used Timeless Textures and the greeting is from ‘Tin of Cards’.  I am having a great time with the Botanical Builders Thinlits. I cut a Mint Macaron flower with them and then sponged some Mint Macaron ink on the edges. I added a black centre to the flower.  I think it just “pops” it a little.  A little bling with the Rhinestone is good for the sparkle factor.

Thanks for visiting me.  Do stop by again.  Drop a comment and say Hi too.  I love to hear how you are and where you are from.

IT’S MY PARTY THANKS TAGS!

I forgot to show you these.  So many other exciting things to show.  I made a number of these tags a couple of weeks ago for the lovely ladies who ordered at my Occasions and Sale-A-Bration Catalogue Launch.

thanks tags

These were very quick to make.  They had to be. I cut a strip of white card 10cm x 5cm (4″ x 2″) and a piece of the ‘It’s My Party’ DSP stack.  I adhered them together and then punched out the end with the Scallop Tag Topper Punch.  I added a strip of the Sahara Sand print from the ‘It’s My Party’ stack along the bottom.  I then tied around some of the Melon Mambo or Mint Macaron Baker’s Twine. The greeting is from the ‘Tin of Cards’ set and that was raised up with dimensionals and then a couple of the balloons from the ‘Party Wishes’ set were stamped and punched out to add to this.  I think I may have even added some sparkle with the Wink of Stella brush. It’s a bit hard to see that though sadly.

Thanks for stopping by today,

A SHELTERING TREE SESSION!

One day last week I pulled out my ‘Sheltering Tree’ stamp set.  I cut up some Whisper White card front pieces to size and stamped away.  It was such fun.  I haven’t had a stamping session like that for a long time and with the way my cardmaking endeavours were going for days before that I was pleased how they worked out.

It was fun to put together all the little images in the set.  There were so many different combinations.  I could have stamped for hours but there was some thing called dinner and housework that stopped me! Who do they have eat!!

I then assembled them all into cards the other day. Here is the finished result.  I made a few of each so I had some cards on hand although I will say that a number of them have already been sent on their way to some special people.

Card bases were Tangerine Tango or Melon Mambo with a Basic Black or Pear Pizzazz card mat. Greetings were from ‘Remembering Your Birthday’ or ‘Tin of Cards’ if the greeting wasn’t from the ‘Sheltering Tree’ set.

Thanks for stopping by today. I hope your day is a happy one.  🙂 🙂 🙂
