Coffee Break Designer Series Paper


Time for a male card. For this I have used the Coffee Break Designer Series Paper (#144155).

The base card is Soft Sky (#131292). Happy Birthday is cut from Early Espresso card (#121686) using the Happy Birthday Thinlits (#143700). Before cutting this I adhered a piece of the Multipurpose Adhesive Sheets (#144106) to the back of the card. This makes it so easy to the attach the Happy Birthday to the card - no fiddly gluing on intricate pieces. I stamped the tree with the Lovely As A Tree stamp set (#c127793, #w128655) using Early Espresso ink (#126974) on Whisper White card (#106549), then I cut this with a die from the Layering Circles Framelits. The scalloped circle was also cut with the same set of framelits and this was attached to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals (#104430). The ribbon is Burlap Ribbon (#141487).

Have a great day.

Gift Card Holder

Hi everyone,

This Gift Card holder is ideal for Christmas when you are giving that special person a gift card.

I used the Year Of Cheer Specialty Designer Series Paper (#144640), and inside I stamped on Whisper White card (#106549). I cut the DSP 10.5cm x 25cm. This was scored at 5cm, 12.5, 15 and 17.5cm. Fold as shown below.

Now tape the bottom of the mountain fold together and punch along the fold with the Classic Label punch (#141491) as shown. You will need to punch twice, leaving a small piece on each side. This is where the gift card will be held.                                                  
Inside, I stamped with Real Red Ink (#126949) and Garden Green (#126973), using stamps from Deck The Halls stamp set (#c144804, #w144801) for the baubles and leaves, and Christmas Quilt (#p144793) for the sentiment. I added some of the Year Of Cheer Specialty Washi Tape (#144644) below the punched area. For the belly band I used Silver Foil Sheet (#132178). The Garden Green card was punched with the Pretty label punch (#143715) and the Real Red card was punched with the 1-3/8”Circle Punch (#119860). Merry Christmas is from the Star Of Light stamp set (#p142110) and stamped with Real Red ink. I used a die from the Bunch Of Banners Framelits (#141488) to cut this, then attached this with Stampin’ Dimensionals (#104430).

Have a great weekend.

Hi And Welcome,

One of my favourite flowers is this daisy from the Daisy Delight stamp set (#p143669).

Berry Burst cardstock (#144249) was used for the base card and for the flower. I stamped the flowers with Berry Burst ink (#144083) and these were then punched with the Daisy punch (#143713). I used Mini Glue Dots (#103683) to attach the 2 pieces of flowers together, then attached it to the Whisper White card (#106549) with Stampin’ Dimensionals (#104430). The White card was cut with the dies from the Swirly Snowflakes Thinlits (#144678) to give the lovely pattern at the bottom as well as the dots along the top. Thank you is also from the Daisy Delight stamp set and stamped with Berry Burst ink. The Designer Series Paper is from the Colour Theory DSP Stack (#144193) and the ribbon is the Silver 3/8 Metallic- Edge Ribbon (#144213). The leaves are from the Painted Harvest stamp set (#144783), stamped with Pear Pizzaz ink (#131180) on Pear Pizzaz card (#131290), then punched with the Leaf Punch (#144667). I attached these with the Mini Glue dots. The sequins are from the Metallics Sequins Assortments (#144214) and glued with the Fine-Tip Glue Pen (#138309). A Glitter Enamel Dot (#144200) was added to the centre of the daisy.

That’s all for today.

Musical Instruments framelits dies

Hi friends,

Here is a great card for someone that loves their music.

The base card and card front are Very Vanilla (#106550). I stamped the cardfront with the Sheet Music background stamp (#c143970, #w143967) using Soft Suede ink (#126978), then tore the edges and sponged them with Soft Suede ink. The  treble cleft and French horn are both cut using the Musical Instruments Framelits Dies (#144677). For the treble cleft I used Basic Black card (#121688) and Copper Foil Sheet (#142020) for the French horn. Happy Birthday is from the Happy Birthday Gorgeous stamp set (#p143662) and stamped with Archival Basic Black ink (#140931). I punched this with the Classic Label punch (#141491). I used the Basic Black 3/8” Shimmer Ribbon under the French horn. The treble cleft was adhered with the Multipurpose Adhesive Sheet (#144106) and I used Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals to attach the French horn.

Enjoy your day.

Balloon Celebration

Hi Ladies & Guys,

It’s great to be back in the craft room after a few weeks away. I was asked for a card for a baby girl, but this one could be used for many occasions.

The base card and card front are Whisper White (#106549) and the DSP is from the Fresh Florals Designer Series Paper Stack (#144131). I stamped the balloons on Vellum cardstock (#106584) using VersaMark (#102283) and White Stampin’ Emboss Powder (#109132). This was set with the Heat Tool (#129056). The stamp set for the balloons and sentiment is Balloon Celebration (#p140675). Congratulations and the strings were stamped with Powder Pink ink (144084) and the sentiment was cut with the Classic Label punch (#141491). I punched the balloons with the Balloon Bouquet punch (#140609), then added some colour by sponging the Vellum balloons with Powder Pink ink. The balloons were attached to the card with Mini Glue Dots (#103683) and Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals (#144108). The ribbon is the Powder Pink Shimmer Ribbon (#144151) and I added Glimmer Enamel Dots (#144200) to the card.

Happy Birthday Thinlits

Hi and welcome again,

I like to cut this Happy Birthday Thinlit (#143700) in 2 different colours and offset them slightly to give a shadow effect.

I cut these from the Champagne Foil Sheets (#144748) and Basic Black card (#121688). I used the Multipurpose Adhesive Sheets (#144106) on the back of these before cutting with the thinlits. The base card and card front are Peekaboo Peach (#141422) and Basic Black was also used between the 2 pieces of Peekaboo Peach. I stamped on the cardfront using the Marbled background stamp (#c144772, #w143755). I stamped with VersaMark (#102283) and sprinkled with a mixture of Clear Stampin’ Emboss Powder (#109130) and Dazzling Diamonds Stampin’ Glitter (#133751) which was then heat set with the Heat Tool (#129056). This gives a nice glitter to the background. The cupcake was stamped using the Sweet Cupcake stamp set (#p141498) and cut with the co-ordinating Cupcake Cutouts Framelits (#141474). For the base of the cupcake I used Crumb Cake ink (#126975), Soft Suede (#126978) and Early Espresso  (#126974). For the top of the cupcake I used Peekaboo Peach ink (#141398), both full strength and the stampin off method to get a lighter colour. I stamped on Very Vanilla card (#106550) for the cupcake. The top was attached with Stampin’ Dimensionals (#104430), then I glued the Iredescent Sequins (#144212) using the Fine-Tip glue Pen (#138309).

Have a great day.
