Creative Elements

Welcome ladies,

I think Creative Elements (#122647) is a very pretty stamp set. I haven't used it for a while so here it is on today's card.






Pear Pizzaz card (#131290) and ink (#131180) has been teamed up with Rich Razzleberry card (#119981) and ink (#126950), as well as Whisper White card (#106549). The Scallop Trim Border punch (#118402) was used for the decorative border. The flowers were hand cut, then attached to the card. One was taped to the card, the next with Stampin' Dimensionals (#104430) and the 3rd I put 2 layers of Dimensionals for more lift. Best wishes is from the Express Yourself stamp set (#130339) which is one of the Hostess products available.

Swallowtail

Hello,

The Swallowtail stamp (#129216) looks beautiful gold embossed on this card.



It was embossed with Versamark (#102283) and Gold Embossing powder (#108129) onto Brushed Gold card (#124917). I then cut it into 3 pieces and mounted it onto Basic Black card (#121688). Using Stampin' Markers in Island Indigo, Crushed Curry and Cajan Craze, I coloured parts of the butterfly, then dabbed with a tissue to give a subtle colour. This also removes the colour from the gold embossing. All these markers are available in the Regals Stampin' Write collection (#131262). The base card is Crushed Curry (#131288) and Whisper White (#106549 used for the sentiment. The punches for the sentiment are Word Window (#119857) and Modern Label (#119849). Just For You is from the Teeny Tiny Sentiments (#120024) using StazOn Jet Black ink (#101406).

That's all today,
Till next time,
😊Happy Stamping😊

Embossing on Vellum

Welcome,

The Flower Garden embossing folder (#123113) was used to emboss the Vellum card (#106584).



I used Wisteria Wonder (#124389) for the base card, then Rose Red (#108613) under the Vellum, and Whisper White (#106549) for the sentiment. The 5/8" Organza ribbon (#114319) is used for the ribbon and bow. I used the 1/8" Mini Brads (#122941) to attach the Vellum to the Rose Red card. Congratulations is from the Itty Bitty Banners stamp set (#126257), stamped with Rose Red ink (#126954) and cut with the coordinating Framelit from the Bitty Banners Framelits (#129267). I used glue dots (#103683) to attach the bow and Stampin' Dimensionals (#104430) for the sentiment.

Till next time,
😊Happy Stamping😊

Blossom Punch

Hello and Happy Easter to all,


Firstly, I wish everyone a Happy Easter and hope you are having a relaxing weekend with family and friends.

Today's card uses the Shimmery White cardstock (#121717) and Crisp Cantaloupe (#131303).




The Crisp Cantaloupe was punched with the Scallop Trim Border (#118402) and the Shimmery White was embossed with the Needlepoint Border folder (#129383). The stamp sets used are Perfectly Penned (#122892) for the sentiment and Everything Eleanor (#124164) for the image of the label. The ink used is Calypso Coral (#126983) and Crumb Cake (#126975). The flower is made using the Blossom Punch (#125603). After punching these flowers I scored each petal through the centre. I did valley folds on one and mountain folds on the other. I then cut each petal towards the centre, making sure not to cut right to the centre. I sponged the edges with Crisp Cantaloupe ink (#131176). I put the 2 flowers together with a Stampin' dimensional (#104430), then added a small flower from the Boho Blossoms punch. A Candy Dot Brad Base (#132293) and Candy Dot from the Neutrals Collection (#130934) finishes off the flower.

I have now decided to add some leaves to the card.




These leaves are punched from the Bird Builder punch (#117191) using Pistachio Pudding card (#130020)

That's all today,
Till next time,
😊Happy Stamping😊
Lesley.

Mixed Bunch birthday

Hello,

I often mention that I consult the Colour Coach (#130118) for colour combinations. This card uses the suggestions for Midnight Muse.






The base card is Rich Razzleberry (#119981) and this was embossed with the Woodgrain folder (#127821). The Midnight Muse (#127546) was embossed with the Honeycomb folder (#129378). Pink Pirouette (#116203) is the other cardstock used. The flower is from the Mixed Bunch stamp set (#125537) and stamped with Rich Razzleberry ink (#126950). This is then punched with the Blossom punch (#125603). I punched the other smaller flowers using the Boho Blossoms punch (#119858) and added them to the flower centre using a Glimmer Brad from the Basics collection (#121003). Happy Birthday is from the Perfectly Penned stamp set (#122892) and uses the Midnight Muse ink (#126860). This is cut out using a Framelit from the Chalk Talk set (#129983). Stampin' Dimensionals (#104430) were used to attach the flower and sentiment.

Till next time,
😊Happy Stamping😊

Core'dinations and distressing

Hi,

Today I used the Core'dinations cardstock in Cherry Cobbler from the Regals Collection (#129955). I embossed this with the Alphabet Press folder (#130916) then using the Stampin' Sanding Block (#129367), I gently rubbed over the embossed card to get this distressed look.




Just be careful when sanding as too much pressure can tear the card.

The other cardstock is Very Vanilla (#106550), Gumball Green (#127543) and Basic Black (#121688). The stamp sets are Zoo Review (#122199) and Sketched Birthday (#130426). I have used Framelits from the Labels Collection (#125598), Bitty Banners (#129267) and Word Bubbles (#132968). The inks used are Cherry Cobbler (#126966) and Basic Black (#126980).

I hope you are all having a relaxing break.
Till next time,
😊Happy Stamping😊

Timeless Talk

Hi again ladies,

I enjoy making cards which have different folds and this is a favourite of mine.




The opened card -




The base card is Very Vanilla (#106550). This is cut at 210 x 110 mm, and scored at 75mm on the long side. The Cherry Cobbler (#121681) is 125 x 100mm. The Island Indigo card (#124390) is 190 x 90 mm and scored at 115mm. I embossed the right side (smaller flap) of this card using the Stripes folder (#123128). The stamp sets used are Off The Grid (#130736) and Timeless Talk (#126607). I heat embossed the telephone and sentiment with Versamark (#102283) and Black Embossing powder (#109133). The Framelit used for the sentiment is from the Word Bubbles Framelits Dies (#132968). When attaching the piece of card with the telephone, I used Stampin' Dimensionals (#104430) only on the right hand side at the back so that you can slide the flap under.

Have a great day,
Till next time,
😊Happy Stamping😊

Harvest Blessing

Hello,

The Colour Coach (#130118) was again used for this card to decide on the colours. I find it invaluable for choosing colours for both cards and scrapbooking.






For this card, I cut 3.5cm from the right side of the front of the card for a variation to the normal card. The base card is Very Vanilla (#106550), with the other Cardstock being Crushed Curry (#131288), Cajun Craze (#121683) and Bermuda Bay (#131286). The Cajun Craze was stamped with the Hardwood stamp (#133035) using Versamark (#102283) giving a subtle image to the card. Harvest Blessing (#126452) and Bring on the Cake (#121958) are the other stamp sets used and stamped with Versamark, Cajun Craze ink (#126965) and clear embossing powder (#108130) and heat set. The Honeycomb folder was used to emboss the Crushed Curry card. The Ovals Collection Framelits (#129381) and Decorative Label punch (#120907) were used.

Till next time,
😊Happy Stamping😊

Petite Petals

Hi,

These cute little flowers belong to the Petite Petals stamp set (#133155) with the coordinating Petite Petals punch (#133322). Buy these as a bundle (#134822) and save $$$$$.





The Cardstock is Wisteria Wonder (#124389), Very Vanilla (#106550) and Elegant Eggplant (#108614), I embossed the Elegant Eggplant with the Woodgrain folder (#127821). I inked an acrylic block with the Wisteria Wonder ink (#126985) and stamped that onto the piece of Very Vanilla card. (This probably works better with the older type ink pads than the much juicer new ones). I then cut this and the Wisteria Wonder card with the Labels Collection Framelits (#125598). The ink used for the flowers and sentiment is Elegant Eggplant (#126969).
Happy Birthday is from the Itty Bitty Banners stamp set (#126257) and cut with the Bitty Banners Framelits (#129267). The ribbon under the sentiment is Very Vanilla 1/2" Seam Binding (#120999). Silver Sparkle Dazzling Details (#127845) was used for the centre of the flowers. As usual I attached the sentiment and some of the flowers with Stampin' Dimensionals (#104430).

Hope you are having a great weekend,
Till next time,
😊Happy Stamping😊

Everything Eleanor and Masking technique

Hello,

The Masking Technique is used to stamp the flowers on this card.




For this technique, firstly stamp the image on your card. Then stamp it again on a scrap piece of paper (post it notes are great as the sticky piece ensures the mask stays in place). Cut around the stamped image, cutting just inside the lines - this piece becomes your mask. Place this over the image on your card. Stamp another image over a portion of the mask to create layered images. Repeat as necessary. On my card I stamped the corner image, then placed the mask over that flower then stamped the other 2 flowers.

The card stock for this card are Calypso Coral (#124392), Basic Black (#121688) and Crushed Curry (#131288). The DSP is from the Watercolour Wonder (#132994) which is in the Occasions Catalogue. I stamped on the DSP using Calypso Coral ink (#126983) with the flower from Everything Eleanor stamp set (#124164). Happy Birthday is from Express Yourself stamp set (#130339) which is one of the hostess products. The punches used for the sentiment are Word Window (#119857) and Modern Label (#119849). I added some Dazzling Details (#124117) to the stamens of the flowers. The Woodgrain
Folder (#127821) was used to emboss the base card. The little butterflies are from the Beautiful Wings Embosslits (#118138) with a Pearl Basic Jewel added.

Bye for now,
😊Happy Stamping😊

Peaceful Petals

Welcome,

Peaceful Petals stamp set (#133107) is available from the occasions catalogue and this is where you will find this flower.




The card stock is Whisper White (#106549), Midnight Muse (#127546) and Pink Pirouette (#116203). I stamped the flower onto the background and pink card ( not sure if it showing up very well on the pink) using Pink Pirouette ink (#126956). I placed the pink pirouette card on the White card so that it was stamped at the same time. I then taped the Midnight Muse card to the card with the pink pirouette on top. A flower was then stamped with Midnight Muse ink (#126860) on Whisper White and this was hand cut and placed on the card using Stampin' Dimensionals (#104430). The ribbon is Midnight Muse 3/8" Stitched Satin. The sentiment is from the Petite Pairs stamp set (#122497) and also stamped with Midnight Muse ink.

Thanks for stopping by,
Till next time,
😊Happy Stamping😊

Timeless Talk Birthday

Hi,

I am donating cards for a fund raiser and looking through my stash, I realised I haven't got a lot of masculine birthday cards so here is one I made today.




The base card is Crumb Cake (#121685). The Marina Mist card (#121682) has been embossed with the Square Lattice folder (#119976) and the Cherry Cobbler card (#121681) was embossed with the Chevron folder (#127749). Basic Black (#121688) was used to mat these. Happy Birthday is from Label Love stamp set (#130622) and punched with the coordinating Artisan Label (#130920). The bicycle is from the Timeless Talk stamp set (#126607). This image as well as the sentiment were heat embossed with Versamark (#102283) and Black embossing powder (#109133). The Ovals Collection Framelits cut the oval which was then sponged with Basic Black ink (#126980). I added the Rhinestone Basic Jewels (#119246) to the wheel hubs. Stampin' Dimensionals (#104430) were used for the sentiment and bicycle.

That's all for today,
Till next time,
😊Happy Stamping😊

The Open Sea

Hello ladies,

I made this type of card recently and liked it so much I decided to do it in this weeks class.




On Very Vanilla card (#106550) I heat embossed with Versamark (#102283) and Gold embossing powder (#109129) using the Hardwood stamp (#133035). I cut the centre out to make a frame. Using Stampin' Dimensionals (#104430), I attached this to a piece of Basic Black card (#121688). I stamped the ship from The Open Sea stamp set (#123032) with Island Indigo ink (#126986) on Very Vanilla card. Happy Birthday is from the Sketched Birthday stamp set (#130426) and this was cut with the Bitty Banners Framelits (#129267). The base card is Island Indigo (#124390).

Tomorrow's card will show how I used the embossed card which was cut from the centre of this one, and was the second card made at the class.

Till then,
😊Happy Stamping😊
Lesley.

Glimmer Paper

Welcome Stampers,

I have used both the Red Glimmer Paper (#121790) and the Champagne Glimmer Paper (#127885) today for this glittery card.





This glimmer paper adds glitter to your card and won't brush off which is great. The base card is Brushed Gold (#124917) with Real Red (#106578) and Basic Black (#121688) used for the sentiment and flower. The flower and sentiment were both heat embossed with Versamark (#102283) and Black embossing powder (#109133). The stamp sets are Secret Garden (#129144) and Bring on the Cake (#121958). The Secret Garden Framelits (#129372) cut the flower. The flower and sentiment were attached with Stampin' Dimensionals (#104430).

Have a great day,
Till tomorrow,
😊Happy Stamping😊
Lesley.

On Film Framelits dies

Hi and Welcome,

The DSP used on this card is Sweet Sorbet from SAB and framed with the On Film Framelits Dies (#132969).




Don't forget when using Framelits, use some waxed paper between the Cardstock and Framelit to make it easier for the Cardstock to come out of the Framelits.
The Cardstock is Whisper White (#106549) and Crisp Cantaloupe (#131303). The flowers from Everything Eleanor (#124164) and the sentiment from Sassy Salutations (#126707) are heat embossed using Versamark (#102283), Calypso Coral ink (# 126951) and Clear embossing powder (#109130). The butterflies are from the Beautiful Wings Embosslits (#118138)

Thanks for your support,
Till next time,
😊Happy Stamping😊
Lesley.

Chalk Talk Birthday

Hello again,

All of the pieces of cardstock used on this card are part of my scrap collection. We end up with so many pieces of various shapes and sizes, so it's great to be able to make use of them eventually.






The Cardstock used is Midnight Muse (#127546), Cherry Cobbler (#121681) and Whisper White (#106549), with Brights Colour Collection DSP (#130134).
The Stamp sets used are Chalk Talk (#130634) and Sketched Birthday (#130426). I used the Chevron embossing folder (#127749) on the Midnight Muse card. The Framelits used are from Chalk Talk (#129983), Circles Collection (#130911) and Bitty Banners (#129267). The Banner punch (#133519) punched the little tags on the side of the card. The ribbons are Daffodil Delight 1/4" Stitched Grosgrain (#126872) and Midnight Muse 3/8" Stitched Satin (#126847). I have used Stampin' Dimensionals (#104430) on the sentiments and Glue Dots (#103683) to attach the bow.

Have a great weekend,
Till next time,
😊Happy Stamping😊

Timeless Talk Birthday

Hello,

For something different, I decided to make a Black and White card today. As you probably know, I usually like the brighter colours, but I do like this.





So of course I have used Whisper White (#106549) and Basic Black (#121688) card. Timeless Talk (#126607) was the stamp set used and heat embossed using Versamark (#102283) with Black embossing powder (#109133). The sentiment is also from Timeless Talk and stamped with Basic Black ink (#126980). The Stamp-a-ma-jig (#101049) is a great tool to position these 2 stamps for the sentiment, so you get them exactly where you want them. The Framelits used are from the Labels Collection (#125598). I then used the Festive Paper Piercing pack (#127857) with the Paper Piercing tool (#126189) and Stampin' Pierce Mat (#126199) to pierce the design around the labels. The Dotted Scallop Ribbon Border punch (#119275) was used for the "ribbon". The bottom of the card was embossed with one of the Delicate Designs folders (#127023).

That's all for today,
Till next time,
😊Happy Stamping😊
Lesley.

Framelits

Hi,

Framelits are so versatile and I have used 4 different ones on this card.




Firstly, I stamped the Very Vanilla card (#106550) using the Hardwood stamp (#133035) and Crumb Cake ink (#126975). This was attached to the Cherry Cobbler (#121681) card. I cut Crumb Cake card (#121685) using the Hexagon Hive Thinlits die (#132965). I put this through the big shot 3 times, arranging it each time to remove all the pieces, so only the outline of the hexagons were left. I then glued this to the card with the 2-way glue pen (#100425). The zebra from Zoo Review (#122199) was stamped with Basic Black ink (#126980) and used the Ovals Collection Framelits (#129381). Happy Birthday is from the Itty Bitty Banners stamp set (#126257) with the matching Bitty Banners Framelits (#129267). The ink for this is Cherry Cobbler (#126966). The Framelit from the Apothecary Accents (#127003) was used for under the sentiment.

Till next time,
😊Happy Stamping😊
Lesley.
