RAINBOW GLIMMER BLOSSOMS + A VIDEO!

I have been playing with the so sparkly Rainbow Glimmer Paper.  It is just gorgeous.  I love the colours in it.

I created a card using it with the Many Layered Blossoms Dies.  I wondered how the diecut flowers would turn out when using the Glimmer Paper.  Let me just show you. 

I really hope you can see the sparkle in these cards.  The photo just doesn’t do them justice.

I put together a video.  I share a few tips in the video so be sure to check it out.

ORNATE GARDEN AND BEST DRESSED TOGETHER FOR A FAST ACTION CARD!

I was playing around just recently to put this card together.  I decided to film a video creating it to show the process I go through sometimes in creating a card. So not to bore you too much I sped the video up – with my lovely daughter’s technical skills. I have still much to learn in this area.  😉

When I make a card there is often a lot of deliberation and shifting things and uncertainty until it comes together.  I’m sure you find that too.

For this card I had a plan.  I always sketch the plan out first for a card.  I had already stamped and coloured the perfume bottle from the Dressed To Impress stamp set.  That was left over from another project.  I wanted to use some of the new Ornate Garden Suite that I had.

I have used the Ornate Borders Dies and the Ornate Layers Dies.  The paper is from the Dressed To Impress Designer Series Paper.  I also used the Ornate Floral 3D Embossing Folder.

So check the quick video out.

Do you like these super quick videos?  Would you like to see more of them?  I will see what my editor can do. 🙂

Here is the finished card for you.

Have a great day,

Jenny

The Ornate Garden Suite is now available in store now -> HERE.

TAGS IN BLOOM BORDER CARD + VIDEO!

Sale-A-Bration Sunday. Today I have a card for you using the Sale-A-Bration stamp set Tags in Bloom. You can use the gorgeous tag images for your sentiments on your cards but I created a border on your cards with the flowers.  Just for something different.

I made the cards in Petal Pink and in Flirty Flamingo.  What colour do you prefer?

I have a video showing how to create it.  I am venturing more in to videos (much to learn still) but hopefully it gives you an idea.

The Tags In Bloom set is a Free choice for Sale-A-Bration with qualifying orders over $180.

The set co-ordinates with the Label Me Lovely and Label Me Fancy Punches from the Mini Catalogue.

WATERCOLOURED PAINTED POPPIES!

I want to share this card with you today.  I made it at our team Shoebox Swap last week.  I will show you the other cards we made later but thought I would show you this one today as I recreated it and filmed a video to show you how it was made.  Hope you like it.

It’s using the Painted Poppies set and is a fun card – although a little messy.  This card was shared to me by Deborah in our Inky Fingers Team.

 

Just a quick overview of how to make the card but be sure to watch the video (and you can subscribe to my channel on Youtube to catch new updates.  It’s early days but I am working on it!) 🙂

  1. Use your clear block and press the ink pad on to the block to get some ink.  Use the Aquapainter to spread the ink around and make it a little watery.
  2. Press the Painted Poppies “splodge” stamp on to the clear block to pick up some ink.  Press it on to your card.  I used Very Vanilla.  You could use Thick Whisper White, Shimmery White or Watercolor card.  Repeat this 3 more times over the card in a “circular” pattern.  Use the Aquapainter to spread the ink and also add some more ink from the block if you need to.
  3. Allow to dry then stamp the flower outlines over the “splodges”.  Stamp the leaves in black over the card.
  4. Use the large “splatter” stamp and ink it up in Mossy Meadow ink.  Stamp off first on scrap paper then stamp over the larger leaves.  Use the smaller “splatter” to stamp over the smaller leaves.  Clean the stamp, ink up the stamp in Gray Granite then stamp off first on to scrap paper. Stamp on the small leaves.
  5. Diecut flower centres add them to the card and stamp the sentiment.  Adhere the card to the card base.

Hope you have some messy fun with this card.

Have a great day,

Jenny

HIMALAYAN POPPY CARD!

Last week I shared on my Facebook page this card with the Painted Poppies stamps.  I wanted to go with a different colour of poppy than what you might be seeing all around the internet.  I looked up some poppy colours and saw a gorgeous blue one called the Himalayan Poppy.  So I tried to recreate this.

The Balmy Blue card piece was embossed with the Stone 3D Embossing Folder. A new favourite of mine.  The Poppy was coloured with the Stampin’ Blends.

I put together a video showing how I created the card.  You can check out this video on Youtube -> HERE.

Apologies in advance.  I am still working this video thing out so be patient. 😉

If you need these Painted Poppies (or any other products) in your life then you can grab them in my store now -> HERE.

Thank you and have a great day.

SUNDAY SUITES – PRESSED PETALS SUITE!

It’s Sunday Suites time.  Today we are looking at the Pressed Petals Suite.  I have seen a lot of projects with this suite recently so I thought it would be timely to look at it.

The Pressed Petals Suite includes a sweet stamp set, Path of Petals, for those special encouraging occasions. (See it closer below).  I love the Petal Labels Dies.  They create some very detailed, delicate labels for your sentiments. 

This is the Path of Petals stamp set.

With these Suites you can use just one Item code to get all of these items together. The Pressed Petals Suite is #152193 and is $167.76 AUD

In the Suite it includes the Pressed Petals Journal.  I have only just noticed the embossed cover. Isn’t that gorgeous??  You can decorate the Journal with some simple decorations.  Not too much or you cover the lovely embossing. On this one it is using the Pressed Petals Specialty Designer Series Paper.

You have to have a closer look at the Pressed Petals Specialty Designer Series Paper.  It looks like pressed flowers on the paper.  Do you remember pressing flowers when you were younger?  Picking the flowers then pressing them in piles of books between paper.  It is just like it.

A couple more samples for you using this suite of products.

I have to show you the Pressed Petals Specialty Washi Tape.  It contains 2 rolls.  One roll is a Crumb Cake tape.  The other petal one is not your regular Washi Tape here.  The roll of tape actually contains individual petals.  You can use the petals on their own as an embellishment or you can peel one off at a time and build up your flower. It is $13 AUD  It is very clever.  I haven’t seen anything like that before have you?

If you want to have a closer look at this suite check the video out below.  It shows you in much more detail the journal and the gorgeous Washi Tape.

So there is the Pressed Petals Suite.

If you want to grab one of these products or all of them you can grab them in my store now -> HERE.  (Australian residents). Please use the Host Code: HCCFFCSU

Thanks for visiting me today on this Sunday.
