Happy Birthday Thinlits

Welcome again,

This fancy fold card is one of my favourites and very easy to make and I just realised there is no stamping!




The cardstock is Very Vanilla (#106550) and Tranquil Tide (#144252). The designer series paper is from the Delightful Daisy DSP (#144137). The flower is one of the Eastern Gold Vinyl Stickers, which I adhered to Tranquil Tide card, then cut with a die from the Eastern Medallions Thinlits (#143725). I attached this to the card using Stampin' Dimensionals (#104430) just on the left side of the flower so I could tuck the flap on the right side under it. I embossed this card with the Quilt Top Textured Impressions Embossing Folder (#144687) and then attached Happy Birthday to it. I attached the Multipurpose Adhesive Sheets (#144106) to the Tranquil Tide card before cutting with the Happy Birthday Thinlits (#143700). The gold scallop border is also from the Eastern Gold Vinyl Stickers.
The dimensions for the card are :
The base card - 21cm x 10.5cm and scored at 6cm from the left.
The Tranquil Tide card - 14cm x 9.5cm.
The top card - 23cm x 8.5cm and scored at 13cm.


Up & Away Thinlits

Hi,

I needed a change from all the Christmas cards I have been making, ready for my upcoming Christmas workshop, so today I have made this beautiful card using the Up & Away Thinlits (#142748). I do love Black & Gold.


The base card is Very Vanilla (#106550) and the black card is Basic Black (#121688). The Designer Series Paper is from the Bundle Of Love Specialty DSP (#144143). Before I cut the balloon from the Basic Black card, I adhered a piece of the Multipurpose Adhesive Sheets (#144106) to the back of the card. Then it was easy to add the pieces cut from the Gold Foil Sheets (##132622) to the cut out balloon. When I attached the balloon to the card I used Stampin' Dimensionals (#104430). To try to give the balloon more of a rounded shape, I put 2 dimensionals on top of each other in the middle of the balloon, and one around the edge. For You is from the Birthday Blooms stamp set (#c140658, #w140655) and stamped with VersaMark (#102283) and Gold Stampin' Emboss Powder (#109129) which was heat set with the Heat Tool (#129056). I used the Layering Ovals Framelits (#141706) to cut this and used Stampin' Dimensionals to attach this to the card.

I hope you having a great weekend.

Mini Pizza Boxes

Hello and welcome again,

Don't you just love these cute Mini Pizza Boxes (#144645) which could be used for small note cards, chocolate treats, a gift card or anything else you can think of.


The boxes are glossy on one side and matt on the other, so you can use whichever side you like. I used the glossy side for all these boxes. For the top left box, I have embossed with the Winter Wonder Textured Impressions Embossing Folder (#144686), then added a snowflake cut using the Seasonal Layers Thinlits (#143751) from Gold Foil Sheets (#132622). This was glued to the box with the Fine-Tip Glue Pen (#138309). The sentiment is from the Seasonal Bells stamp set (#c142107, #w142104). This was stamped with VersaMark (#102283) and Gold Stampin' Emboss Powder (#109129), then heat set with the Heat Tool (#129056), the cut with the Bunch Of Banners Framelits.  I attached this to the box with Stampin' Dimensionals (#104430).
The box on the right was embossed with the Quilt Top Textured Impressions Embossing Folder (#144687). The tree is cut with a die from the Card Front Builder Thinlits Dies (#144674). I used the Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Paper (#135315), then added a bit of colour using Garden Green ink (#126973) on a Sponge Dauber (#133773). The sentiment is from the Christmas Quilt stamp set (#144793) and stamped with Real Red ink (#126949). I cut this with a die from the Lots Of Labels Framelits (#138281). This was then attached to the box with Stampin' Dimensionals. Real Red card (#106578) was used for the little swirl from the Swirly Snowflakes Thinlits Dies (#144678). I glued this with the Fine-Tip Glue Pen.
For the bottom box, I used Real Red card for the scalloped square which was cut with one of the dies from the Layering Squares Framelits (#141708). One of the designs from the Year Of Cheer Specialty Designer Series Paper (#144640) was attached on top of the red square. A piece of the red Tinsel from the Mini Tinsel Trim Combo Pack (#144636) was tied around the square card, then this was attached to the box with Stampin' Dimensionals. I stamped the baubles from the Carols Of Christmas stamp set (#c144804, #w144801) using Real Red ink and these were cut with the co-ordinating dies from the Card Front Builder Thinlits Dies (#144674), then I used the Mini Stampin' Dimensionals (#144108) to attached each of these to the box. The sentiment from the Snowflake Sentiments stamp set (#c144820, #w144817) was stamped with Real Red ink and punched with the Pretty Label punch (#143715).

Have a great weekend.

Quilt Top TIEF & Quilt Builder Dies

Hi,

Black and Gold - very elegant, (and looks much better in real life).



I embossed the Very Vanilla base card with the Quilt Top Textured Impressions Embossing Folder (#144687), then I attached the Washi Tape from the Year Of Cheer Specialty Washi Tape (#144644) and Pick A Pattern Washi Tape (#144166). The scalloped square was cut with the Layering Squares Framelits (#141708) from Gold Foil Sheet (#132622). I used the Quilt Builder Framelits Dies (#144673) to cut the Basic Black card and DSP from the Bundle Of Love Specialty Designer Series Paper (#144143). I glued the black card and DSP with the Fine-Tip Glue Pen (#138309) to the gold square. This was then attached to the card with Stampin' Dimensionals (#104430). Happy Birthday is from the Birthday Banners stamp set (#p141506) and stamped with VersaMark (#102283) and Gold Stampin' Emboss Powder (#109129) and heat set with the Heat Tool (#129056). This was cut with one of the dies from the Bunch Of Banners Framelits (#141488) and I sponged the edges with Soft Suede ink (#126978) then attached it to the card with Stampin' Dimensionals.


Quilt Builder Framelits Dies

Hello,

The Quilt Builder Framelits Dies (#144673) have been used to cut all the pieces for the "quilt" on this card.



The outline was cut from the Copper Foil Sheets (#142020) and the red and green pieces are cut from the Quilted Christmas 6"x6" Designer Series Paper (#144617). I attached this to a piece of Whisper White card (#106549) which I had covered with Multipurpose Adhesive Sheets (#144106) to make it easy to attach all the pieces. I stamped the sentiment from the Christmas Quilt stamp set (#p144793) using Real Red ink (#126949), then I embossed the top part of this piece of card using the Quilt Top Textured Impressions Embossing Folder (#144687). This white card was attached to a piece of Real Red card (#106578). The "quilted piece" was attached to the card with Stampin' Dimensionals (#104430).

Detailed Dragonfly Thinlits

Hello ladies and guys,

A beautiful card today in black and white with a bit of sparkle.



Firstly, I attached 2 designs of the Pick A Pattern Washi Tape (#144166) to the Whisper White base card (#106549). Then I stamped Happy Birthday from the Rose Wonder stamp set (#p140697) using Tuxedo Black Memento ink (#132708) on the smaller piece of Whisper White card. Next I embossed this card with the Softly Falling Textured Impressions Embossing Folder (#139672) and attached this to a piece of Basic Black card (#121688). The dragonfly is cut with the larger dragonfly from the Detailed Dragonfly Thinlits (#142749) using Silver Glimmer Paper (#135314), then this was attached to the card with Mini Stampin' Dimensionals (#144108). I attached the silver sequins from the Metallics Sequin Assortment (#144214) using Multipurpose Liquid Glue (#110755).

Have a great day.
