Best Birds & Birds & Blooms Thinlits

Hi,

Today's card is the same design as yesterdays, but I wanted to show the reverse of the Bundle Of Love Specialty Designer Series Paper (#144143) and also suitable for a masculine card.



The cardstock is Soft Sky (#131292), Island Indigo (#124390), Very Vanilla (#106550) and Copper Foil Sheet (#142020). The bird and sentiment are stamped with Island Indigo ink (#126986). The bird is from the Best Birds stamp set (#p141525) and the sentiment is from Guy Greetings stamp set (#c138828, # w138825, #p137178). The framelits used are Birds & Blooms (#141477) for the bird, Stitched Shapes (#145372) for the circles and Seasonal Layers (#143751) for the branch. I used the Mulitpurpose Adhesive Sheets (#144106) for the branch, and the bird and sentiment were attached with Stampin' Dimensioanls (#104430).

That's all for today.

Till next time,

Happy Stamping!


Lesley.

Bundle Of Love Specialty DSP

Welcome friends,

Regular readers know that I love butterflies and pretty cards and this one covers both of these.



The Bundle Of Love Specialty Designer Series Paper (#144143), which I have used on the card, is a heavyweight paper with gold foil designs on one side and pink or blue with Very Vanilla on the other side. The cardstock is Very Vanilla (#106550) and Fresh Fig (#144248) and the larger butterfly is Gold Glimmer Paper (#133719). This butterfly is cut with the Butterflies Thinlits (#137360) and the smaller butterfly with the Bold Butterfly Framelits (#138135). Happy Birthday is from the Best Birds stamp set (#p141525) and stamped with Fresh Fig ink (#144082). The circles are cut with the Stitched Shapes Framelits (#145372) and attached to the card with Stampin' Dimensionals (#104430). I used Mini Glue Dots (#103683) to attach the butterflies to the card. A Gold Faceted Gem (#144141) was added to the butterfly.

Enjoy your day.


Till next time,

Happy Stamping!


Lesley.

Floral Phrases

Hi again,

There are a variety of Suites in the annual catalogue, suitable for a range of occasions. The Fresh Florals Suite which I have used for this card is ideal for Love and Sympathy. Each suite includes stamp sets, framelits, DSP and embellishments that all co-ordinate, making card making that much easier.



The cardstock is Whisper White (#106549), Powder Pink (#144251) and Flesh Florals Designer Series Paper (#144131). The border at the top of the card, the flower and sentiment were stamped with Powder Pink ink (#144084) and these images are from the Floral Phrases stamp set (#141764). The circles were cut with the Stitched Shapes Framelits (#145372) and the Layering Circles Framelits (#141705). The banner was cut with a die from the Cupcake Cutouts Framelits (#141474). The banner and circle were attached with Stampin' Dimensionals (#104430). I also added a bit of glitter to the flower using the Clear Wink Of Stella Brush (#141897), but I don't think it has shown very well on this photo.


Till next time,

Happy Stamping!


Lesley.

Hello Friend

Hello friends,

The stamp set I have used for this card is Hello Friend (#c144059, #w144055). This stamp set co-ordinates with the Hello Friend Heat Embossing Project Kit (#146013) which is s great way to make a bunch of cards with all embellishments included. However I haven't used the kit today - I will do that another day.



Recently I showed how you can heat emboss with any of the Stampin' up! colours, using VersaMark and any colour stamp pad. Another way is just using the ink pad without the VersaMark, but you do need a very "juicy" ink pad to do this. Usuallly they are juicy when they are new, otherwise just re-ink the pad with plenty of ink. You also must work quickly to add the embossing powder before the ink dries. The leaves on the wreath and Hello were stamped with Tranquil Tide ink (#144085), then Clear Stampin' Emboss Powder (#109130) added, then heat set with the Heat Tool (#129056). The flowers were also heat embossed and I used Cherry Cobbler ink (#126966) for these. The background behind Hello was stamped with Soft Suede ink (#126978) but not embossed. The flowers are from the Best Birds stamp set (#p141525) and cut with a die from the Birds & Blooms Thinlits  (#141477). The circle was cut with the Stitched Shapes Framelits (#145372). The cardstock is Tranquil Tide (#144252), Cherry Cobbler (#121681) and Very Vanilla (#106550). The circle was attached with Stampin' Dimensionals (#104430) and the flowers with Mini Glue Dots (#103683). The Cherry Cobbler card was embossed with the Pinewood Planks 3D Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder (#143708)

Have a great day.

Till next time,

Happy Stamping!

Background Bits with Sunshine Wishes

Hello everyone,

The Multipurpose Adhesive Sheet (#144106) has been used again to adhere the flower to this card. So simple and no more fiddly glueing.



The cardstock is Berry Burst  (#144249), Whisper White (#106549) and Powder Pink (#144251). The flower was cut with a die from the Sunshine Wishes Thinlits (#141489). I cut 2 flowers, cut the stem from one and overlapped the flowers. Thank You and the background image are from the Background Bits stamp set (#c144029, #w144026) and stamped with Berry Burst ink (#144083). The ovals were cut with the Layering Ovals Framelits (#141706) and atttached to the card with Stampin' Dimensionals (#104430). I added some of the beautiful Glitter Enamel Dots (#144200) to the card.

 Where do the weeks go? The weekend is here already. Have a great one.



Till next time,

Happy Stamping!


Lesley.

Sunshine Wishes Thinlits

Hi,

Another busy day with painting and decluttering, so I haven't had much time in the craft room lately, so here is another quick and easy card. Framelits and Designer Series Paper make it very quick. I didn't even have to stamp.




The framelits to cut these hearts and sentiment are from the Sunshine Wishes Thinlits (#141489). I applied the Multipurpose Adhesive Sheets to the back of the Copper Foil Sheet (#142020) before cutting the framelits, which makes it so easy to attach the detailed cutouts to the card. Just remove the backing and adhere to the card. The base card is Whisper White (#106549) and the Lemon -Lime Twist DSP is from the Fresh Florals Designer Series Paper Stack (#144131). Can't get much easier than that!


Till next time,

Happy Stamping!


Lesley.

Inspired Events

Welcome again,

I have stamped on the Whisper White card front (#106549) using the image from the Inspired Events stamp set (#p143693) with Crushed Curry ink (#131173).



Happy Birthday is from the Happy Birthday Gorgeous stamp set (#p143662) and the ovals are cut with the Layering Ovals Framelits (#141706). I have used Crushed Curry card for the base card and butterfly. The butterfly is cut with the Move Me Thinlits (#143732), and attached to the card with Mini Stampin' Dimensionals (#144108).  I added Glitter Enamel Dots (#144200) to the butterfly and Whisper White card. I attached the white oval to the  Basic Black oval (#121688) with Stampin' Dimensionals (#104430).


Till next time,

Happy Stamping!


Lesley.
