Stylish Stems Framelits Dies

Hello friends,

I guess I could call this an envelope card, as that's what it looks like.

 

 




The Night Of Navy base card (#106577) is a normal size card, then the flap has been added. The flap is cut at 14.9 cm x 9.5cm. I scored at 1cm along the long side. I marked at the halfway point on the opposite side at 7.5cm and on each side at 4.5cm from the scoreline. Then I cut the v shape for the flap. See diagram below , it's probably easier to understand.

 

I cut the outline of the flower on the flap using the Framelit from the Stylish Stems Framelits Dies (#142750), then embossed the flap with the Petal Burst Textured Impressions Embossing Folder (#141493). Always cut with the framelits first before embossing. If you do it the other way, you will flatten out the embossed pattern. Then using Whisper White card (#106549) I cut another flower using the same framelit. I coloured this with a dauber and Cherry Cobbler ink (#126966) around the outside, then So Saffron (#126957) in the centre of the flower. I cut another flower using the detailed flower framelit using Cherry Cobbler card (#121681). I added glitter to this with the Clear Wink Of Stella Glitter Brush (#141897). I glued this to the base flower that I coloured, using the Fine Tip Glue Pen (#138309). The centre was coloured with the Gold Wink Of Stella Glitter Brush (#141898).
The DSP is from the Floral Boutique Designer Series Paper (#141663). To attach the flap to the card, ensure you have the card so that the opening is at the top and attach the flap to the back top of the card. To attach the flower, close the flap over the front of the card and position the card to line up with the cutout on the flap. I attached the flower with Stampin' Dimensionals (#104430). Congratulations is from the Best Birds stamp set (#p141525), stamped with Cherry Cobbler ink (#126966) and cut with a framelit from the Bunch Of Banners Framelits (#141488). This was also attached with Dimensionals. Ensure the Dimensionals are only on the outer edges of the banner so the flap can tuck under it.
I also decorated inside the card. I should do this more often. I stamped the smaller flowers from the Special Reason stamp set (#142899) using Night of Navy ink (#126970) and using the stamping off method. I actually stamped twice on scrap paper, then stamped 4 times on the Whisper White card without re-inking. The sentiment is also from the Special Reason stamp set and stamped with Night Of Navy ink.

 

Have a great day.


Till next time,

Happy Stamping!

Tarnished Foil with Butterflies

Hello everyone,

Today I have experimented with the Tarnished Foil technique again, but using it for a feminine card which I love the results.

 


 

I have used the Petal Burst Textured Impressions Embossing Folder (#141493) for these cards. The only difference with the backgrounds is that I embossed the first one with the Gold Foil (#132622) so the Petals were debossed and the 2nd card the Petals are raised. To do this just turn one of the pieces of foil upside down in the embossing folder. Once I embossed the Foil Sheet, I rubbed the Jet Black StazOn ink pad (#101406) over the embossed area. Don't cover the area evenly as it looks better this way. I then rubbed the VersaMark pad (#102283) randomly over the area, again its best not to cover the whole area evenly. I sprinkled Gold Stampin' Emboss Powder (#109129) over the Foil, then heat set with the Heat Tool (#129056). I again rubbed the Black ink over the top, and repeated the process with Copper Stampin' Emboss Powder (#141636), black ink, Silver Stampin' Emboss Powder (#109131) and finishing with the black ink. As you can see on the 2 cards, the black ink will colour the raised areas, so the petals are coloured on the second card and the bits between the petals are coloured on the first card.
The cardstock I have used are Crushed Curry (#131288) and Basic Black (#121688). The sentiments are from the Best Birds stamp set (#p141525) and stamped with VersaMark and Gold Stampin' Emboss Powder. This was cut with the Stitched Shapes Framelits Dies (#145372). The butterflies were cut with the Bold Butterfly Framelits (#138135) and Butterflies Thinlits (#137360). One of the Flourish Thinlits (#141478) was used to cut the border piece under the sentiment. I added Rhinestone Basic Jewels (#119246) to the butterflies. Stampin' Dimensionals (#104430) were used to attach the sentiment and butterflies to the card.

Till next time,

Happy Stamping!

Nailed It Bundle

Hi,

The love the Tarnished Foil technique I have used on this card and particularly suits a masculine card, although I will also experiment with it for a feminine card.

 

I used Silver Foil Sheet (#132178), which was embossed with the Hexagons DynamicTextured Impressions Embossing Folder (#143231). Using the Jet Black StazOn ink pad (#101406), I rubbed randomly over the embossed sheet. Then I applied VersaMark (#102283) randomly over the sheet and added Silver Stampin' Emboss Powder (#109131), then heat set with the Heat Tool (#129056). I then added more VersaMark and this time the Copper Stampin' Emboss Powder (#141636). After this was heat set I rubbed this again with StazOn ink. The finished results will be different each time by using different coloured Foil, embossing powders and embossing folders. The tools from the Nailed It stamp set (#c143077, #w143074) were stamped with StazOn ink and cut with the Build It Framelits Dies (#143230). I used Silver Foil, Basic Black card (#121688) and Cajun Craze card (#121683) for the tools. Happy Birthday from Guy Greetings stamp set (#c138828, #w138825, #p137178) was stamped with Jet Black StazOn ink on Cajun Craze card, and cut with one of the Project Life Cards & Labels Framelits, then attached with Stampin' Dimensionals (#104430).

Have a great weekend.

Till next time,

Happy Stamping!

Layered Letters Alphabet

Hello and welcome,

Yes, another scrapbook page. This is a very quick and easy page. I like simple, uncomplicated pages, especially for boys.

 

I have used Real Red and Pacific Point 12x12" cardstock from the Brights Collection (#131186). The DSP is retired. I find I always have leftover DSP which always comes in handy for a scrapbook page eventually. I stamped the letters from the Layered Letters Alphabet stamp set (#p138692) on Whisper White card (#106549), using Real Red ink (#126949) Pacific Point ink (#126951) and Daffodil Delight ink (#126944). The letters were then cut with the Banners Framelits and I sponged around the banners using the same inks.

Till next time,

Happy Stamping!


Lesley.

Balloon Scrapbook page

Hello everyone,

I am hoping to get back into scrapbooking a bit more this year, so here is a lovely bright scrapbook page today which would be great for kids birthdays.

 

I stamped the clouds from the Sprinkles Of Life stamp set (#p139971) on the 12x12" Whisper White base page (#124302), using Tempting Turquoise ink (#126952). The DSP is retired. For the balloons I stamped the card with the same coloured ink - Tangerine Tango card (#116206) and ink (#126946), Pacific Point card (#116202) and ink (#126951), Daffodil Delight card (#121680) and ink (#126944), Real Red card (#106578) and ink (#126949), Perfect Plum card (#108615) and ink (#126963), and Bermuda Bay card (#131286) and ink (#131171). The balloons are punched with the Balloon Bouquet (#140609). This punch punches both the small and large balloons. The card for the rectangles and circles are Tempting Turquoise (#108598) and Daffodil Delight (#121680). The circles are cut using the Layering Circles Framelits (#141705).

Till next time,

Happy Stamping!

Swirly Scribbles Thinlits

Hi everyone,

My grandson wants a bird for his birthday so this is the card I made for him.

 

The bird was stamped with VersaMark (#102283) and Gold Stampin' Emboss Powder (#109129) on So Saffron card (#108611). This is of course heat set with the heat Tool (#129056). The co-ordinating framelit to cut the bird is from the Birds & Blooms Thinlits (#141477). The Early Espresso card (#121686) and the Garden Green card (#108605) are cut with the Swirly Scribbles Thinlits (#141497). These were glued to the card with the Multipurpose Liquid Glue (#110755). The base card is Very Vanilla (#106550) and the DSP is from the Moroccan Designer Series Paper (#141645). Happy Birthday which is stamped with Garden green ink (#126973) is from the Birthday Banners stamp set (#p141506), then cut with a Framelit from the Bunch Of Banners Framelits (#141488). The sentiment and bird were both attached with Stampin' Dimensionals (#104430).

Till next time,

Happy Stamping!

Rose Wonder

Welcome,


I have been having trouble posting this blog so hopefully it is working now. The photo didn't appear in the previous post so should be right now.


I have done some more watercolouring today. I think I need a bit more practice. I did this one with the Watercolour Pencils (#141709) and Aqua Painter (#103954).  


 


The cardstock is Real Red (#106578), Basic Black (#121688), Watercolour Paper (#122959) and Whisper White (#106549) for the tag. The flower from Rose Wonder stamp set (#p140697) was stamped with Basic Black Archival ink (#140931). I used Old Olive and Real Red from the Watercolour Pencils, and blended the colour with an Aqua Painter. Thank You from the Circle Of Spring stamp set (#p138964) was stamped with Real Red ink (#126949) and I used the Lots Of Labels Framelits (#138281) to cut this. I cut the end off to give a straight edge. I just realised I also could have used the tag from the Tags & Labels Framelits (#138282) to get the same results. This tag was attached with Stampin' Dimensionals (#104430).


Till next time,

Happy Stamping!


Lesley.
