Postage Due

Hello,

Todays card shows a technique which I'm not sure what its called, but gives a nice effect to the stamping.
 
 
To stamp the Postage Due image (#c126397, #w132064), I used a couple of sheets of baby wipes, then using the ink refills, I randomly added ink to the baby wipes to cover an area large enough for the stamp. I used Crumb Cake re-inker (#121029) and Island Indigo (#122932). You can reuse this and each time you stamp it, it will be a bit different. When you normally ink your stamps you usually pat the stamp several times on the ink pad. With this method, just pat onto the inked wipes once. However you might like to experiment and get some really great effects.
The card stock is Cherry Cobbler (#121681), Island Indigo (#124390) and Very Vanilla (#106550). I used the Woodgrain embossing folder (#127821) on the Island Indigo card. Thank You is from the Sassy Salutations stamp set (#c126707, #w132070, using Island Indigo ink (#126986) and I punched this with the Decorative Label punch (#120907).
I hope you try this method as its so much fun. You can use more colours for some great effects. If you don't have baby wipes you can use kitchen paper with the same results. You can put these aside for use at another time. Just spray with water to re-moisten and re-use.
 
Hope you are all staying dry and safe. We've had an enormous amount of rain today with lots of thunder and lightning.
 
Till next time,
Happy Stamping!
Lesley.

Moon Lake

Hi everyone,

Today I wanted to make a very easy card, then show how easy it is to just add a couple of colours and not much more effort to make it just that much nicer.

 
 
The base card is Marina Mist (#121682). Whisper White (#106549) and Basic Black (#121688) have been used on both cards. The second card I have added Real Red card (#1065780 and Flashback DSP (133699). As you can see it doesn't take much to make a difference.
The stamp sets are  Moon Lake (#c138540, #w137149), Work of Art (#c134114, #w134111) and Big Day (from Sale-a-bration). The swish from Work of Art was stamped with Marina Mist ink (#126962) and the duck and sentiment were stamped with the Tuxedo Black Memento ink (#132708).
 
Till next time,
Happy Stamping!
Lesley.

Scrapbook pages

Hello,

I don't seem to get enough time to do scrapbooking so thought it was time to make time do a couple of pages today.



The DSP for the base page is from the Park Lane DSP (#133694). The other cardstock is Blackberry Bliss (A4-133682, 12x12"-131195) and Very Vanilla (A4-106550, 12x12"-124301). The letters are cut using an electronic cutter using Very vanilla card. These were glued to circles punched with the 1-3/8" circle punch (#119860), then the Starburst Framelits (#132967). I used the On Film Framelits (#132969) for the small photo on the left page. I used the Candy Dots Brad Bases (132293) but instead of adding Candy Dots I used Rhinestone Basic Jewels (119247) which fitted nicely on the bases.

The Park Lane DSP, Starburst Framelits, On Film Framelits and Blackberry Bliss are all in the Retiring List. If you want any of these (if they are available) just contact me.


As well as the retiring list, the Weekly Deals are still available every week, so check out this weeks deals here.

Till next time,
Happy Stamping,
Lesley.

Butterfly Basics Bundle

Hello again,

Today I wanted to do the same design card as yesterday but for a female.




I used Coastal Cabana card (#131302), Bermuda Bay (#131286) and Very Vanilla (#106550). The stamp sets are Butterfly Basics (#c138816, #w138813, #p137154) and Sassy Salutations (#c126707, #w132070). I used Bermuda Bay ink (#131171) and Crumb Cake (#126975) was used for the honeycomb background on the Very Vanilla card. The butterfly was cut with the Butterflies Thinlits Dies (#137360). This can be purchased as a bundle with the Butterfly Basics stamp set, saving 15% (#c139323, #w139322). The Spiral Border (#119872) was the punch used on the Coastal Cabana card. The butterfly was attached with Stampin' Dimensionals (#104430) and Pearl Basic Jewels (#119247) were added to the butterfly.

That's all today.

Till next time,
Happy Stamping!
Lesley.

The Open Sea

Hello,

The Open Sea stamp set (#c123032, #w128454) has been used for this masculine card.



The Very Vanilla background (#106550) was stamped using Crumb Cake ink (#126975) and Cajun Craze ink (#126965). The boat and anchors were stamped using Tuxedo Black Memento ink (#132708) on Cajun Craze card (#121683) and Marina Mist card (#121682). Happy Birthday is from the Butterfly Basics stamp set (#c138816, #w138813, #137154). I used the Spiral Border punch (#119872) on the Marina Mist card. I sponged the edges of the Very Vanilla and Cajun Craze cards with Cajun Craze ink and the Marina Mist with the Memento ink.



Till next time,
Happy Stamping!
Lesley.

Timeless Talk

Hello ladies,

Another stamp set in the retiring list is the Timeless Talk (#c126607, #w126605). It's sad to see some of the favourite products retiring but I am looking forward to a whole lot of new ones. Here is a very easy masculine card.




The cardstock is Daffodil Delight (#121680), Basic Black (#121688) and Very Vanilla (#106550). The inks are Daffodil Delight (#126944) and Tuxedo Black Memento (#132708.

With the zig zag along the bottom of the card I used the stamping off method for a lighter image.

Have a great day.

Till next time,
Happy Stamping!

Happy Birthday is from the Sketched Birthday stamp set (#c130426, #w130423) and cut with the Bitty Banners Framelits (#129267). The "stamp" is punched with the Postage Stamp punch (#122344).

Retiring List

Hello Ladies,

Well the wait is over for what is available on the retiring list. The retiring list is all the products which will no longer be available in the new catalogue (which comes out on 2nd June). The retiring list is available from today till 2nd June or while stocks last. Many of the products are up to 50% so it is a great opportunity to stock up at some great prices. You can contact me to place an order or order online. Click here to view the retiring list.

Today I have included a couple of cards I have previously put on the blog that have products from the retiring list.


The Fancy Fan embossing folder (#127751), Hearts Collection framelits (#125599), Petite Pairs stamp set (#c122497, #w128706) and the Delicate Designs embossing folder (#127023) are all retiring on this card.

Glimmer Paper Butterflies

Hello again,

I often have bits and pieces left over from projects so I put them into a box for use at another time. This butterfly, sentiment and the embossed Whisper White card were all in this box so it made this card even quicker to make.




The cardstock is Pacific Point (#116202), Real Red (#106578) and Whisper White (#106549). Red Glimmer Paper (#121790) was used for the butterfly which was cut with one of the Butterflies Thinlits Dies (#137360). " For You" is from the Tag Talk set (#c134252, #w134249), stamped with Real Red ink (#126949) and punched with the Label Bracket (#132153). As with most cards I make, I have used Stampin' Dimensionals (#104430) to attach the sentiment and butterfly.

Till next time,
Happy Stamping!
Lesley.

Hexagon Hive Thinlits

Hello,

The Hexagon Hive Thinlits is one of the products available this week in the Weekly Deals for a great price of $32.21. I have used it for today's card. Check out the weekly deals here.



I stamped the Very Vanilla base card with Crumb Cake ink (#126975) and the Hardwood background stamp (#c133035, #w133032). The Hexagon Hive Thinlit cut the Baked Brown Sugar cardstock (#231301). I cut the bottom off the Hexagon Hive as I didn't want it to cover the whole card. This was then glued to the card using the Multipurpose Liquid Glue. This has a fine tip so easy to use on the narrow parts. Happy Birthday was stamped with the Memento Tuxedo Black ink (#132708) and this is from the Sassy Salutations stamp set (#c126707, #w132070). The flower from Beautiful Bunch (#c134282, #w134279) was stamped with the Memento ink as well, on Real Red card (#106578). The coordinating punch for this flower is the Fun Flower (#133785). I stamped the leaves from the Stippled Blossoms stamp set (#c126747, #w132076). These were stamped with Crumb Cake ink (#126975) and Garden Green (#126973). I love these stamp sets which are 2 step stamping. In fact, the first time I saw 2 step stamping was at a Stampin' Up! demonstration and I wanted to know more and it wasn't long before becoming a Stampin' Up! demonstrator.

Hope you have had great weekend.

Till next time,
Happy Stamping!
Lesley.

Four Frames

Hi,

Today I used the Four Frames stamp set (#c123442) with the coordinating Decorative Label punch (#120907). I heat embossed this with VersaMark (#102283) and Gold Embossing powder (#109129).



Happy Birthday from the Petite Pairs (#c122497, #w128706) is stamped with Pear Pizzaz ink (#131180).
The base card and the "ribbon" is Brushed Gold card (#124917). The "ribbon" is punched with the Dotted Scallop Ribbon Border punch (#119275). On a piece of Whisper White card (#106549) I stamped the leaves from the Stippled Blossom stamp set (#c126747, #w132076) using Pear Pizzaz ink (#131180) for the base of the leaves, then gold embossed the second image. The DSP is from the Subtles Colour Collection (#130135). The butterflies are from the Papillion Potpourri (#c123759, #w132058) and punched with the Bitty Butterfly punch (#129406). These were also gold embossed. Stampin' Dimensionals (#104430) were used to attach the butterflies and the sentiment to the card.


Till next time,
Happy Stamping!

Hello Life Project Kit

Hello,




I have had fun putting this Hello Life Project Kit together (#137949). All I have to do now is print some photos and add them to the frames. Everything is included that you need and instructions are included so very easy to put together. This is available from the Occasions Catalogue so can be ordered till 2nd June. The frame size is approximately 430 x 350 mm.

I'm looking forward to changing this frame from time to time as I get updated photos of the family and with a variety of themes.

That's all today.

Delicate Designs

Hello,

Using Whisper White card (#106549), I cut the scallop with the Large Scallop Edgelit (#127019). Then I embossed with one of the Delicate Designs folder (#127023). I taped a piece of Pink Pirouette card (#116203) under the scallop.




On another piece of Whisper White I stamped using Pink Pirouette ink (#126956) with one of the images from the Stippled Blossoms stamp set (#c126747, #w132076) for a subtle background. This is the same image that was stamped in black on the 2 flowers. This card was added to a piece of Melon Mambo card (#119980). The flowers are stamped with Melon Mambo ink (#126948) and Tuxedo Black Memento ink (#132708) and hand cut. The sentiment is from the Label Love stamp set (#c130622, #w130619) and punched with the Artisan Label (#130920). This sentiment and one of the flowers was attached to the card with Stampin' Dimensionals (#104430).

That's all today,

Till next time,
Happy Stamping!

Butterfly Basics and Work of Art

Hi and welcome,

The Work of Art stamp set (#c134114, #w134111) has a great range of images which work well for backgrounds. I used one of the images on this card.



I stamped this with Pink Pirouette ink (#126956), Pear Pizzaz (#131180) and So Saffron (#126957). The flower from Butterfly Basics stamp set (#c138816, #w138813, #p137154) was stamped with Calypso Coral ink (#126983). Happy Birthday is from the Label Love stamp set (#c130622, #w130619) and punched with the Coordinating Artisan Label punch (#130920). I attached this to the card with Stampin' Dimensionals (#104430). The cardstock is Calypso Coral (#124392), Pear Pizzaz (#131290) and Whisper White (#106549). I added 2 pieces of the Sweet Dreams Designer Washi Tape (#137787) to the bottom of the card.

If you have MDS you might like to check here on what products are available. Unfortunately MDS and digital downloads will be discontinued but will be available at 30% off from 21st April till 2nd June.

Yes it's Wednesday again so this weeks WEEKLY DEALS can be found here.

The new annual catalogue will be available on 2nd June (not the 30th June as originally advertised). I can't wait to see what new products will be available. This means that the retiring list will soon be published, so watch out for this info next week. The retiring list is all the products that will not be in the next catalogue and are often offered at discounted prices so a great chance to get all those products you have always wanted.


Thanks for visiting,

Happy Stamping!

Postage Due

Hi,

A tool I find very helpful when making cards or scrapbooking, is the Colour Coach (#130118). This gives colour combinations for each of the Stampin' Up! colours. Today I wanted to used Baked Brown Sugar so checked the colour coach to see what colours were suggested. One of the colour combinations was Garden Green and Cherry Cobbler, so this is what I decided to use.


The cardstock used is Naturals Ivory (#108630), Baked Brown Sugar (#131301), Cherry Cobbler (#121681) and Garden Green (#108605). The stamp sets are Postage Due (#c126397, #w132064), Work Of Art (#c134114, #w134111) for the Zig zags on the Cherry Cobbler Card, and Sketched Birthday (#c130426, #w130423) for the sentiment. The inks are Baked Brown Sugar (#131174), Garden Green (#126973) and Cherry Cobbler (#126966). The "stamp" was punched with the Postage Stamp punch (#122344) and the sentiment was cut with one of the Bitty Banners framelits (#129267). The "stamp" and sentiment were attached with Stampin' Dimensionals (#104430).

Have a great day.

Till next time,
Happy Stamping!

Butterflies Thinlits

Hello,



Time for some home d├ęcor. Of course couldn't resist using my favourite butterfly from the Butterflies Thinlits Dies (#137360). Since I have had these framelits I have been wanting to put these butterflies into a frame and I have finally found a suitable one.








For the background I used one of the Irresistibly Yours specialty DSP which was from SAB. I then cut some Gold Foil Sheets (#132622) with the Striped Scallop Thinlits (#133734) and glued them onto the background with the Multipurpose Liquid Glue (#110755). Next I cut 3 butterflies with the Butterflies Thinlits dies using Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer paper (#135315), Champagne Glimmer Paper (#127885) and Red Glimmer Paper (#121790). I then layered these with Stampin' Dimensionals (#104430). This was then placed into the frame. I didn't include the glass which allows the butterflies wings to stand up nicely.

Till next time,
Happy Stamping!
Lesley.

Alphabet Press Embossing folder

Hello ladies,

The technique I have used for the background today is using an embossing folder which I have inked with a brayer.



Using the Alphabet Press embossing folder (#130916), I added Pacific Point ink (#126951) with a brayer (#102395) to one side of the folder. I then embossed a piece of Whisper White card (#106549) and this is the results. The other cardstock is Pacific Point (#116202) and Real Red (#106578). The stamp sets are Sassy Salutations (#c126707, #w132070) and Cupcake Party (#c134126, #w134123). The cupcake base was stamped with Real Red ink (#126949) and the icing has been punched from Gold Glimmer Paper (#133719) using the Cupcake Builder punch (#121807). The cupcake was attached to a piece of real red cut with the Starburst framelits (#132967). The ribbon is Real Red 1/8" Taffeta Ribbon (#119251). I added some Pearl Basic Jewels (#119247) to the card near the sentiment and on the base of the cupcake.

Tip for today.
To remove the ink from the embossing folder, just wash under running water.


Till next time,
Happy Stamping!
Lesley.

Everything Eleanor and Work of Art

Good morning,

I used the Work of Art stamp set (#c134114,#w134111) again today for the background on this card using Daffodil Delight ink (#126944) and Pink Pirouette (#126956).




Then I stamped the flourish from Everything Eleanor stamp set (#c124164, #131987) using Wild Wasabi ink (#126959). The butterfly is stamped with Night Of Navy ink (#126970. This butterfly is from the Butterfly Basics stamp set (#c138816, #w138813, #p137154) and cut with the Butterflies Thinlits Dies #137360). Don't forget these are available as a bundle saving 15% (#c139323, #w139322, #p138865). The sentiment also from Work Of Art is stamped with Night Of Navy ink. The cardstock is Whisper White (#106549) and Night of Navy (#106577). The Small Scallop Stampin' Trimmer Rotary Cutting Blade (#129410) was used for the decorative edge on the Night Of Navy card.

Have a great day.

Till next time,
Happy Stamping!

Work Of Art

Hi,

I have just received a Stampin' Up! order and it's always exciting to use a new stamp set, so couldn't resist making a card with this Work of Art stamp set (#c134114, #w134111) today.



The other stamp set is Moon Lake (#c138540, #w137149). Firstly I stamped the 3 "splotches" of colour with Soft Sky ink (#131181), Blushing Bride (#131172) and Pear Pizzaz (#131180). Then Tuxedo Black Memento ink (#132708) was used to stamp the sentiment and bird. The cardstock used is Blushing Bride (#131287), Basic Black (#121688) and Whisper White (#106549).

Bloom With Hope

Hello,

Bloom With Hope (#c133952, #w133949) is one of the Hostess stamp sets in this current catalogue. Time is running out to be able to earn one of these beautiful sets as there will be a new catalogue available from 2nd June (not the 30th as advertised on the back of the catalogue). Contact me if you want more info on how to get this or any other Stampin' Up! products.





I used 3 designs from the Back To Black DSP (#133700). The cardstock is Bermuda Bay (#131286), Basic Black (#121688) and Whisper White (#106549). Don't these colours look great together!!! I stamped the flower with VersaMark (#102283) and heat embossed with Black Embossing Powder (#109133). I handcut the flower then attached it to the card with Stampin' Dimensionals (#104430). Happy Birthday is also from the Bloom with Hope stamp set. This was stamped with Tuxedo Black Memento ink (#132708) and punched with the Modern Label punch (#119849). The edges of this were sponged with Bermuda Bay ink (#131171).


Have a great day.


Till next time,
Happy Stamping!
Lesley.

Textured Impressions Embossing folders

Hello ladies,

This is a beautiful card using just Whisper White card (#106549) and Gold Metallic Encore Ink (#132141).





I used 4 different embossing folders - Decorative Dots (#133520), Lovely Lace (#133737), Woodgrain (#127821) and Fancy Fan (#127751) for a variety of textures. The butterflies are from the Papillion Potpourri stamp set (#c123759, #w132058) and punched with the Elegant Butterfly (#127526). Wedded Bliss is from the Tag Talk stamp set (#c134252, #w134249) and it also has a coordinating punch - the Label Bracket (#132153). I added the smallest of the Pearl Basic Jewels (#119247) to each butterfly. The butterflies and sentiment were added to the card with Stampin' Dimensionals (#104430). I think this would also make a lovely sympathy card.

That's all today.

Till next time,
Happy Stamping!
Lesley.

Bow Builder Punch

Hello,

Here's a pretty card which I have added a bow made with the Bow Builder Punch (#137414).





I embossed the Very Vanilla base card with the Woodgrain embossing folder (#127821). The other Cardstock is Blackberry Bliss (#133682). I stamped the image from World of Dreams (#c134186, #134183) using Pear Pizzaz ink (#131180). The flowers from Petite Pairs (#c122497, #w128706) were stamped with Blackberry Bliss ink (#133642) and punched with the Petite Petals punch (#133322). These were added to the card with Stampin' Dimensionals (#104430). Pearl Basic Jewels (#119247) were added to the flowers, bow and sentiment. Happy birthday is from the Big Day stamp set (from sale-a-bration).

Don't forget about the bundles that have been put together which will give you a saving of 15% till 17th April. Check out what is available here.

I wish you all a very Happy Easter.

Till next time,
Happy Stamping!
Lesley.

Stippled Blossoms

Hi again,

I am almost at the end of my supply of quick and easy cards which I made before my hand operation. I have actually been able to get back into a bit of crafting the last couple of days as long as I don't do too much at a time, which is fantastic. I find it hard not being able to do very much.




I had another flower from Stippled Blossoms stamp set (#c126747,#w132076) already stamped and cut. I seem to have a lot of these floating around. It was stamped with Crumb Cake ink (#126975) and VersaMark (#102283) with Gold Embossing Powder (#109129) which was heat set. The card stock is Very Vanilla (#106550), Basic Black (#121688) and Calypso Coral (#124392). I embossed on the base card with the Honeycomb folder (#129378). Happy Birthday is from the Itty Bitty Banners stamp set (#c126257, #w132022). This coordinates with the Bitty Banners framelits (#129267) which was used to cut this. The sentiment and flower were attached to the card with Stampin' Dimensionals (#104430.


Till next time,
Happy Stamping!
Lesley.

Moon Lake

Hello,

I embossed the image from the Moon Lake stamp set (#c138540, #w137149) on Basic Black card (#121688) using VersaMark (#102283) and White Embossing powder (#109132).



I then cut this with the Labels Collection Framelits (#125598). The base card is Island Indigo (#124390 and the DSP is Adventure Bound DSP Stack (#137780). Happy Birthday is from the Guy Greetings (#c138828, #w138825, #p137178) and stamped with Tuxedo Black Memento ink (#132708). I added some Candy Dots from the Regals Collection (#130932).

I wish you and your families a safe and Happy Easter.

Till next time,
Happy Stamping!
Lesley.
