Vintage Leaves

Welcome again,

I often say that I love the way Stampin' Up! co-ordinate stamp sets and other products which make it so easy when crafting. These co-ordinating Vintage Leaves and Framelits are available in a bundle which also means you save 15% when buying them together.





I embossed the Very Vanilla base card (#106550) with the Elegant Dots folder (#138287) and I cut the ovals with the Ovals Collection Framelits (#129381). The leaves from the Vintage Leaves stamp set (#p138802) were all stamped with VersaMark (#102283) and Gold Embossing Powder (#109129), then cut with the Leaflets Framelits (#138283). The cardstock for the leaves is Cherry Cobbler (#121681), Crumb Cake (#121685), Cajun Craze (#121683) and Old Olive (#106576). Old Olive is also used for the larger oval. Happy Birthday is from the Teeny Tiny Sentiments (#c120024, #w130042), stamped with Cherry Cobbler ink (#126966), then punched with the Word Window punch (#119857). Gold Cording Trim (#139618) was used to make the bow which was attached to the sentiment with a Mini Glue Dot (#103683). The leaves were layered using Stampin' Dimensionals (#104430).

I'm looking forward to a great 2016 and sharing what I love to do - crafting.

Till next time,
Happy Stamping!
Lesley.

Butterflies Thinlits

Hello and welcome,

Another little sneak peak today from the new occasions catalogue, with the Blushing Bride Glimmer Paper (#140550) which I have used for the butterfly.



This butterfly was cut with the Butterflies Thinlits (#137360) and placed on top of the solid butterfly cut with the Bold Butterfly Framelits from Basic Black card (#121688). The base card is Very Vanilla (#106550) and I have also used Blushing Bride card (#131287) with Timeless Elegance DSP (#138444). Happy Birthday is from the Guy Greetings stamp set (#c138828, #w138825, #p137178). I stamped this with VersaMark (#102283) and Black Embossing Powder (#109133) which was then heat set with the Heat Tool (#129056). I used one of the Banners Framelits (#132173) to cut this, and I attached the banner to the card with Stampin' Dimensionals (#104430). The embellishment on the butterfly is Winter Wonderland (#139621).

I wish you all a very happy, safe and healthy New Year and best wishes for a great 2016.

Till next time,
Happy Stamping!
Lesley.

Festive Flower Builder Punch

Hello again,

There are some returning favourites from the holiday catalogue which are being carried over to the Occasions catalogue and the Reson for the Season stamp set with the Festive Flower Builder Punch is a bundle (#140847) which is returning. Yes this may be a Christmas set but can also be used for other occasions, as I have done on today's card. 



I have used Whisper White (#106549) for the base card. The flower was made with Marina Mist card (#121682) and this was stamped with Marina Mist ink (#126962) using the Reason for the Season stamp set (#p139730). The petals were punched using the Festive Flower Builder punch (#139682). For the centre of the flower I used Silver Glimmer Paper (#135314). The flower was put together using hot melt glue. The Silver Foil Sheet (#132622) was cut with the Striped Scallop Thinlits (#133734). The Fine-Tip Glue Pen (#138309) is ideal to add glue to the small areas of these scallops. The sentiment is from the Birthday Blossoms stamp set (#c139471, #w139167) and stamped with Marina Mist ink.

You will also find in the new catalogue a cute stamp set which co-ordinates with this Festive Flower punch. I love it when there are multi uses for a product.

Till next time,
Happy Stamping!
Lesley.

Lovely as a Tree

Hello friends,

Firstly, I hope you all had a very happy and safe Christmas, which I did with all the family here. After everyone left I spent the last 2 days re-organising my craft room and couldn't wait to start stamping again. It's only a few more days - 5th January- when you can start ordering from the new catalogue with so many exciting new products on offer. As well as this, Sale-a-bration is here again, so with every $90 worth of products you order you will earn free products of your choice from the Sale-a-bration catalogue. Today I am giving you a sneek peak of one of the stamp sets, Perfect Pairings (#c141261, #w141258) which have a range of sentiments which can be used alone or with a matching pair as I have used here.



I have used Soft Suede ink (#126978) for the sentiment as well as the trees. After stamping the trees from Lovely as a Tree (#c127793, #w128655), I cut this into 3rds and taped them onto the Soft Suede card (#119982) with a small space in between. I also sponged the edges using a dauber and Soft Suede ink. The base card is Whisper White (#106549).

Sale-a-bration runs from 5th January till 31st March 2016. There are some products available throughout this period, however there are some products that are available only till 15th February, then there will be a release of more products for the remaining time. So make sure you don't miss out on the products that you want.

Till next time,
Happy Stamping!
Lesley.

Merry Christmas

Hello everyone,

Firstly I would like to wish everyone a very happy Christmas and best wishes for the New Year. I am taking a short break from the blog but will be back after Christmas with lots more cards. 



The Dove is from the Dove of Peace stamp set (#w139800). I stamped and heat set this with VersaMark (#102283) and Gold Embossing powder (#109129) on Soft Sky card (#131292). The other cardstock is Whisper White (#106549) and Night Of Navy (#106577). The Deco Labels Collection Framelits (#130102) cut the labels which I then attached the dove to using Stampin' Dimensionals (#104430). I embossed the white label with the Softly Falling embossing folder (#139672). The sentiment is from the Peaceful Wreath stamp set (#p139794) and stamped with Night of Navy ink (#126970).

Thanks for your support this year.

Wishing you Peace, Joy, Love and good health this Christmas.


Till next time,
Happy Stamping!
Lesley.

Birthday Blossoms

Welcome ladies,



I have used part of the sentiment from Birthday Blosssoms set (#c139471, #w139167). "Celebrate You" is the actual stamp but I only wanted to use "celebrate", so once I stamped this, I punched celebrate with the Word Window punch (#119857), then attached this to the Night of Navy card punched with the Washi Label (#138296). The card stock is Daffodil Delight (#121680), Night Of Navy (#106577), Whisper White (#106549) and Brights DSP Stack (#138434). The flowers are from the Birthday Blossoms stamp set and stamped with Night Of Navy ink (#126970). The co-ordinating punch for these flowers is the Pansy Punch (#130698). The small flowers are punched with the Tree Builder punch (#138295). The ribbon is Whisper White 5/8" Satin Ribbon (#134549).

The count down to Christmas continues. This time next week it will all be over for another year. I hope you all have a great week.

Happy Stamping!
Lesley.

Butterfly Birthday

Hello,

I have just received some of the new products from the next seasonal catalogue and I can't wait to share them with you. As a demonstrator we can get the products earlier so we can start planning our projects. The catalogue is available from 4th January, so not too much longer to wait. There are so many fantastic new products, I'm looking forward to start playing with them (as soon as I get some time).

Meanwhile here is a lovely simple Birthday card with Butterflies.



I stamped the splotches from the Gorgeous Grunge stamp set (#c130517, #w130514) onto the Whisper White card (#106549) using Mint Macaron ink (#138326). The ribbon is the Mint Macaron 1" Dotted Lace Trim (#138424). The butterfly cut from Mint Macaron card (#138344) has been cut with the Bold Butterly Framelits (#138135). The Butterflies Thinlits (#137360) cut the butterfly from the Gold Foil Sheets (#132622). Both butterflies were attached with Stampin' Dimensionals (#104430). Happy Birthday is from the Butterfly Basics stamp set (#c138816, #w138813, #p137154). This was stamped with VersaMark (#102283) and Gold Embossing Powder (#109129), then heat set with the Heat Tool (#129056).

Have a great day.

Till next time,
Happy Stamping!
Lesley.

Sympathy card

Hi everyone,

Unfortunately I needed 2 Sympathy cards this week and this is one of the ones I made.



I love the Shimmery White card  (#121717) for special cards so that's what I have used today. The silver is Silver Foil Sheet (#132178) and the leaves were cut from the Silver Glimmer Paper (#135314) using the Bird Builder Punch (#117191). I stamped a flower from the Beautiful Bunch stamp set (#c134282, #w134279) on the card using the metallic silver ink, now retired. Then on another piece of card I stamped the same flower with VersaMark (#102283) and added Silver Embossing Powder (#109131), which was heat set with the Heat Tool (#129056). This was then punched with the Fun Flower Punch (#133785) and placed over the first image using Stampin' Dimensionals (#104430). The leaves were glued to the card using the 2-wat glue pen (#104425). The sentiment is from the Petite Pairs stamp set (#c122497, #w128706) and also heat embossed with silver.

Have a great day. 

Till next time,
Happy Stamping!
Lesley.

Sprinkles Of Life

Hello and welcome,

I don't make a lot of kids cards but decided to make this today which of course would be suitable for any kid (big or little).



The base card is Very Vanilla (#106550), with Rich Razzleberry (#119981) and Bermuda Bay (#131286) which co-ordinate with the colours in the Bohemian DSP (#138446). The ink is Rich Razzleberry (#126950), Bermuda Bay (#131171) and Delightful Dijon (#138327). Happy Birthday is from the Endless Birthday Wishes (#p140273). The ice-cream is from the Sprinkles of Life stamp set (#p139971) and the ice-cream scoops were punched with the co-ordinating Tree Builder punch (#138295). I added some glitter to these using the 2-way Glue Pen (#100425) then sprinkling with Dazzling Diamonds Stampin' Glitter (#133751). The top "scoop" was attached with Stampin' Dimensionals (#104430).

Till next time,
Happy Stamping!

Butterflies Thinlits

Hello and Welcome,

With this being such a busy time of the year, I am finding it hard to post a blog every day, so apologies if I don't get one done each day till things quieten down a bit. 
It's been a while since I have made a card with a butterfly (and I am sure you know I love butterflies), so here is one.



The base card is Whisper White (#106549). I attached the beautiful Winter Wonderland Specialty DSP (#139588) to a piece of Bermuda Bay card (#131286). Happy Birthday is from the Endless Birthday Wishes stamp set (#p140273) and stamped with Bermuda Bay ink (#131171). The punch used for "birthday" is the Washi Label punch (#138296). The butterfly from the Bermuda Bay card was cut with the Butterflies Thinlits (#137360) and the gold butterfly was cut with the Bold Butterfly Framelits (#138135). The gold card is Gold Foil Sheet (#132622). After cutting this butterfly I embossed it with the Decorative Dots folder (#133520). I used Stampin' Dimensionals (#104430) to attach the butterflies.

Have a great day.

Happy Stamping!
Lesley.

The paper is from the Home For Christmas Designer Series Paper (#139592). The tag was made using the Scalloped Tag Topper and the Curvy Corner Trio Punch (#139683). I stamped the Christmas Wishes from Cosy Christmas stamp set (#c139779, #w139776) using Real Red ink (#126949). The ribbon is Gold 1/8" ribbon (#134583). 

That's all today.

Peaceful Pines

Hello and welcome,

This is just one of the 8 Christmas Tree images in the Peaceful Pines stamp set (#p139728).



The tree was stamped with Cucumber Crush ink (#138324), then cut with the co-ordinating Perfect Pines Framelits (#139665). This stamp set and Framelits are also sold as a bundle (#140850) with a 15% saving. Using another Framelit from the same set, I cut the holes for the "string of lights".
I cut another tree from Real Red card and placed it under the stamped tree so you can see the "lights". The Cardstock is Real Red (#126949), Whisper White (#106549), Winter Wonderland Specialty DSP (#139588) and Gold Foil sheets (#132622). Thinking Of You is from the Embellished Ornaments stamp set (#c139759, #w139756) and stamped with Real Red Ink (#126949). I also embossed the Whisper White card with the Softly Falling Embossing folder (#139672). The Christmas tree and tub were attached with Stampin' Dimensionals (#104430). The tub is also cut with a Framelit from the Perfect Pines Framelits Dies.

Have you finished your Christmas cards yet? I'm still finishing mine and hopefully have them in the mail soon.

Till next time,
Happy Stamping!

Flurry of Wishes

Hi Ladies,

I stamped on the Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Paper (#135315) with Night of Navy ink (#126970) for the snowflake.




The stamp set is Flurry of Wishes (#p139732). The punch which co-ordinates with this image is Flower Medallion (#137417). The circle is cut with one of the Circles Collection Framelits (#130911). The Cardstock is Night of Navy (#106577) and Whisper White (#106549). The snowflake is attached to the circle with Stampin' Dimensionals (#104430). The sentiments are also part of the Flurry Of Wishes set and using Night of Navy ink.

A quick and easy card after another busy day.

Till next time,
Happy Stamping!

Awesomely Artistic

Hello friends,

When stamping this card, I temporarily attached the smaller piece of Whisper White (#106549) to the base card. Then I stamped the image from the Awesomely Artistic stamp set (#c138816, #w138813, #p137154) using Wild Wasabi ink (#126985). This allows the images to match on both pieces of card.



The base card was embossed with the Honeycomb folder (#129378). I then taped the Perfect Plum card (#108615) under the smaller white card and attached this to the base card, ensuring the images lined up. I then stamped the flowers with So Saffron ink (#126957), cut these by hand and attached with Stampin' Dimensionals (#104430). The butterfly was stamped with Perfect Plum ink (#126963) and punched with the Bitty Butterfly punch (#129406). Happy Birthday Wishes is from the Petite Pairs stamp set (#c122497, #w128706). I punched this with the Scallop Oval (#119856) as well as the Perfect Plum card.

I have been way for the past 2 weeks (that's why I haven't done a blog every day). I am now home after a relaxing holiday to Moruya on the south coast of NSW, ready for a busy few weeks leading up to Christmas.

Till next time,
Happy Stamping!

Birthday Blossoms

Hello,

The beautiful DSP is from the Winter Wonderland Specialty Designer Series Paper (#139588). It may be part of the Christmas designs but still can be used for other occasions as I have done on this birthday card.




The other Cardstock is Whisper White (#106549) and Real Red (#106578). The stamp set for the flowers, leaves and sentiment are from the Birthday Blossoms set (#c139471, #w139167). The flowers are stamped with Real Red ink (#126949) and punched with the Pansy Punch (#130698). The leaves and sentiment are stamped with VersaMark (#102283) and Gold Embossing powder (#109129) and heat set with the Heat Tool (#129056). I punched the small flowers for the centre of the flowers using the Tree Builder Punch (#138295) from the Gold Glimmer Paper (#133719). These were glued to the flowers with the 2-way Glue Pen (#100425). The red card and DSP were cut with the Lots of Labels Framelits (#138281).
