Happy Christmas

Merry Christmas to everyone,

This is my last Christmas card for 2016 using the beautiful Star Of Light Bundle (#p143508). This has been a very popular stamp set with matching framelits.

 

The Star Of Light stamp set (#p142110) has been used for the greetings and the flourish of stars. I have used Night Of Navy ink (#126970) and Daffodil Delight ink (#126944). The stars have been cut with the Starlight Thinlits Dies (#141840) using Night Of Navy card (#106577), Daffodil Delight card (#121680) and Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Paper (#135315). The base card is Night of Navy and the card front is Whisper White (#106549). I also added a little star from the Metallic Enamel Shapes (#141678) to the middle of the stars. The base star was attached with Stampin' Dimensionals (#104430) as was the top star. I glued the yellow star with Fine-Tip Glue Pen (#138309).

I would like to take this opportunity to wish you and your families a very Merry Christmas and thanks for all of your support during the year.

Till next time,
Happy Stamping!
Lesley.

Vintage Leaves

Hello and welcome,

I used the Rock and Roll method to stamp these leaves from the Vintage Leaves (#p138802), to give the different colours on the leaves.

 

For the rock and roll method, ink the stamp with the lighter coloured ink, then roll the edges of the stamp on the darker coloured ink. If you use the darker colour first you will get that colour transferred onto the lighter ink pad so best to use the lighter colour first. For these leaves I used Crushed Curry (#131173) with Cajun Craze (#126965), Mint Macaron (#138326) with Soft Suede (#126978) and Cherry Cobbler with Early Espresso (#126974). These leaves have been cut with the Leaflets Framelits (#138283). After shaping the leaves with a bone folder (#102300), I attached them to the card with Stampin' Dimensionals (#104430).
For You is stamped with Cherry Cobbler ink and is from the Birthday Blooms stamp set (#c140658, #w140655). The cardstock used is Soft Suede (#119982) and Very Vanilla (#106550 with the background from the Serene Scenery Designer Series Paper Stack (#141642). I added some Copper Metallic Thread (#141696) and a Metal Rimmed Pearl (#138394) to the stems of the leaves.

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

Fabulous Foil Designer Acetate

Hello,

The background on this card is the Fabulous Foil Designer Acetate (#141653). These acetate sheets are Gold on one side and Silver on the other. I have used the silver side. There are 3 different designs in the pack.

 

The cardstock is Whisper White (#106549), Night Of Navy (#106577) and Real Red (#106578). The butterfly was cut from the Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Paper (#135315) using the Bold Butterfly Framelits (#138135). Happy Birthday and the banner are both images from the Birthday Banners stamp set (#p141506) using Night Of Navy ink (#126970) and Real Red (#126949). The circles are cut with the Layering Circles Framelits (#141705). I used Stampin' Dimensionals (#104430) to attach the banner, the butterfly and circles to the card.

Bye for now.

Happy Stamping!
Lesley.

Birds and Blooms Thinlit

Hello again,

There are very few cards I make these days that I don't use Framelits. They are so convenient and easy to use. There is such a great variety available from Stampin' Up! and today I have used 3 different sets. I have had a sneak peek at the new Occasions catalogue that will be available from 4th January with more exciting framelits and a great range of products. Can't wait to show them to you.


 

For the bird I used Birds And Bloom Thinlits (#141477), the circles are from the Layering Circles Framelits (#141705) and the swirl from the Cupcake Cutouts Framelits (#141474). I have also used 2 embossing folders. The white circle was embossed with the Elegant Dots folder (#138287) and I embossed the side of the Whisper White base card (#106549) with one of the folders from Floral Affection (#141713). There are 2 smaller folders in this set. The Designer Series Paper is Flirty Flamingo from the 2016-2018 In-Colour DSP Stacks (#141408). For the bird and larger circle I used Rose Red card (#108613). Mint Macaron card (#138344) was used for the swirl. The swirl was glued with Multipurpose Liquid Glue (#110755) and the bird was attached with Stampin' Dimensionals (#104430). Oh,  yes, I almost forgot, I did do some stamping - Happy Birthday from Butterfly Basics (#c138816, #w138813, #p137154) was stamped with Rose Red ink (#126954).

Hope you are all organised for Christmas with only a few more days till Santa comes.

Till next time,
Happy Stamping!
Lesley.

Serene Scenery DSP Stack

Hello Ladies and Gents,

I have made a couple of cards this week using the Serene Scenery Designer series Paper Stack (#141642) and the Touches Of Texture stamp set (#141934) but with very different looks.

 

I have stamped the images directly onto this piece of DSP using Soft Suede ink (#126978), Tip Top Taupe (#138325), Early Espresso (#126974), and Sahara Sand (#126976). I then coloured the flowers with Peekaboo Peach ink (#141398) and the flowers with Garden Green (#126973). The colour for these were applied using a Blender Pen (#102845). The cardstock is Early Espresso (#121686), Garden Green (#108605) and Very Vanilla (#106550). Happy Birthday is from the Sweet Cupcake stamp set (#p141498) and stamped with Garden Green ink. The banners were cut using a framelit from the Bunch of Banners (#141488). The ribbon is Peekaboo Peach 3/8" Ruched ribbon (#141427). The greeting was attached with Stampin' Dimensionals (#104430).

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

Sweet Cupcake

Hello and welcome,

This cupcake from the Sweet Cupcake stamp set (#p141498) is stamped using the Two-step method which allows you to get the different colours or tones.

 

The base of the cup cake was stamped onto Crushed Curry card (#131288) using Crushed Curry ink (#131173), then Daffodil Delight ink (#126944), followed by So Saffron ink (#126957). The stamps are marked 1, 2 and 3 and I find stamping them in this order is the easiest. The photopolymer stamps make it easy to align the images. The icing was stamped on Whisper White card (#106549) using Daffodil Delight and So Saffron inks. Then I stamped the last image with VersaMark (#102283) and Gold Embossing Powder (#109129). For the icing I stamped No 2 first, then 3, then 1. The base and top of the cupcake are both cut with the co-ordinating Cupcake Cutouts Framelits (#141474). Of course these are available as a bundle (#142232) with a 10% saving. The circles are cut with the Layering Circles Framelits (#141705). The greeting is stamped with Daffodil Delight ink and the banner with Crushed Curry ink. The Birthday Banners stamp set (#p141506) is where you will find these stamps. With these photopolymer stamps I have been able to curve the greeting to match the shape of the banner.   Tip: Stamp the banner first, then the greeting, then cut the banner with the Framelits. This framelit is from the Bunch Of Banners Framelits (#141488). The Fabulous Foil Designer Acetate (#141653) has been used for the background and attached to the Whisper White base card. Stampin' Dimensionals (#104430) were used to attach the banner and icing.

Time is running out the get some great products at discounted prices. Click here to see what's available until 3rd January or while stocks last in the Year-End Closeouts.

That's all for today,
Happy Stamping!

Merry Tags Framelits Dies

Hi,

I am sure everyone has their Christmas cards made by now, but just in case you have a last minute one to make, here is one in very traditional colours - red and gold.

 

I have used Real Red cardstock (#106578), Whisper White (#106549) and Gold Foil Sheets (#132622). I have stamped all the images with VersaMark (#102283) and Gold Embossing Powder (#109129), which then is heat set with the Heat Tool (#129056). The background behind the bauble and the 25 are from the Merriest Wishes stamp set (#c142066, #w142063). The sentiment and ivy are from the Embellished Ornaments stamp set (#c139759, #w139756). The bauble and circle were cut with the Merry Tags Framelits Dies (#141835). These can be purchased in a bundle (#c143520, #w143519) with the Merriest Wishes stamp set, but only till the 3rd January. The greeting was cut with the Banners Framelits (#132173). The edge of this banner was sponged with Real Red ink (#126949). This and the bauble were attached to the card with Stampin' Dimensionals (#104430). I used the Gold Metallic Thread (#138401) to "hang" the bauble.

Thats all for another day.
Till next time,
Happy Stamping!

Flourish Thinlits

Hello,

It's along time since I have had a chance to do any scrapbooking, so thought I would do a page today. Hope to get a bit more time next year for scrapping as I have so many photos I need to do something with.

 



 I have used the Flourish Thinlits (#141478) to cut the flowers, leaves and border. The Layered Letters Alphabet stamp set (#p138692) was used to stamp the title, then I cut each letter using the Lots Of Labels Framelits (#138281). These letters were stamped with Flirty Flamingo ink (#141397). The White card for the base page is from the Fancy Frost Specialty Designer Series Paper (#142014). This paper is white on white with a textured design. These designs can be highlighted by adding ink. The other cardstock is Flirty Flamingo (#141421), Wisteria Wonder (#124389), Pink Pirouette (#116203) and Mint Macaron (#138344).

Have a great day.
Till next time.
Happy Stamping!

Falling Flowers

Hello,

I had a piece of DSP from the Serene Scenery DSP Stack (#141642) left over from yesterdays card so have used it on the background for this card. It can't go to waste, can it!

 

The cardstock is Sweet Sugarplum (#141423), Very Vanilla (#106550) and Pear Pizzaz (#131290). The sentiment from the Mixed Borders stamp set (#p141932) was stamped with Sweet Sugarplum ink (#141395). This was cut with one of the framelits from the Layering Circles Framelits (#141705) then attached to the Gold Metallic Foil Doilie (#138392). The larger flowers were stamped with Sweet Sugarplum ink, and the smaller flowers were stamped with Rich Razzleberry ink (#126950). The leaves were stamped with Pear Pizzaz ink (#131180). These flowers and leaves can be found in the Falling Flowers stamp set (#c139556, #w139553) and cut with the co-ordinating May Flower Framelits Dies (#140276). I added Metallic Enamel Shapes (#141678) to the flowers. I used Stampin' Dimensionals (#104430) to attach the larger flowers, and Mini Glue Dots for the smaller flowers (#103683). The leaves were glued with the Multipurpose Liquid Glue (#110755).

Enjoy your day.

Till next time,

Balloon Bouquet Punch

Hi Ladies,

This quick and easy card could be used for people of all ages, using the Balloon Bouquet punch (#140609).

 

The balloons were punched from Silver Glimmer Paper (#135314), Gold Glimmer Paper (#133719) and Red Glimmer Paper (#121790). There are 2 different size balloons in this punch and I have used both sizes for the gold and silver balloons and the larger one for the red balloon. The base card is Pacific Point (#116202). The strings and the sentiment were stamped with Pacific Point ink (#126951). These images are from the Balloon Celebration stamp set (#p140675). I embossed the Whisper White card (#1-6549) using the Confetti Embossing Folder (#140592), then added the balloons to the card. The banner for Happy Birthday was cut using a framelit from the Cupcake Cutouts framelits (#141474), cutting off a small piece on the right side, to line up with the edge of the white card. The full size of this banner fits exactly across this card.

Sweet Cupcake

Hello again,

We all have little pieces of card that we just can't throw away, so here on today's card I have used these pieces to make the background, the cupcake and greeting. This is a great way and so simple to make your own background.

 

I cut1cm pieces of Wisteria Wonder card (#124389) and Elegant Eggplant card (#108614), then taped them onto the Very Vanilla card (#106550). The base of the cupcake was stamped with Wisteria Wonder ink (#126985) and Elegant Eggplant ink (#108614). One of the images stamped with Elegant Eggplant ink was using the Stamping off method, to give a lighter colour. The top of the cupcake was stamped with VersaMark (#102283) and Silver Embossing Powder (#109131) which was then heat set with the Heat Tool (#129056). The stamps used for this card are from the Sweet Cupcake stamp set (#p141498). The  cupcake and "wish" are cut with the Cupcake Cutouts Framelits Dies (#141474). The label was cut using the Bunch Of Banners Framelits (#141488). Metal Rimmed Pearls (#138394) were added to the card and I attached Silver Satin Ribbon (#134548) between the Vellum (#106584) and the background.

That's all for today.

Till next time,
Happy Stamping!
Lesley.

Timeless Textures

Hello,

I have stamped the background for this card using the Timeless Textures stamp set (#c140517, #w140514).

 

Firstly I stamped around the edges of the Very Vanilla Card (#106550) using VersaMark (#102283) and Gold Embossing Powder (#109129) which was heat set with the Heat Tool (#129056). Then I stamped another image using Crumb Cake ink (#126975) over the top. Then I used Wisteria Wonder ink (#126985) with another image. I used Elegant Eggplant card (#108614) to matt the pieces of Very Vanilla card. Happy Birthday and the Banner are from the Birthday Banners stamp set (#p141506) and stamped with Elegant Eggplant ink (#126969). The Bunch Of Banners Framelits (#141488) were used to cut the banner.

Have a great day.

May Flower Framelits

Hi again,

The May Flowers Framelits (#140276) which co-ordinate with the Falling Flowers stamp set (#p139553) have been used on this card today. I used these sets a couple of days ago using different images to give a totally different looking card. 

 

I stamped the leaves onto the Whisper White card (#106549) using Wild Wasabi ink (#126959) and the buds were stamped with So Saffron (#126957). I then embossed this card with the Elegant Dots folder (#138287). Rich Razzleberry ink (#126950) was used to stamp the larger flowers and So Saffron for the 2 smaller flowers. Rich Razzleberry card (#119981) was used for the base card and one of the flowers. The flowers were cut using the May Flowers Framelits. The beautiful ribbon is from the Holiday catalogue. I used the Sweet Sugarplum from the Glitter Ribbon Combo Pack (#142015). There is also a silver ribbon in this pack. The sentiment is from the Mixed Borders stamp set (#p141932) and the framelit to cut this is from the Lots Of Labels Framelits (#138281). This was attached with Stampin' Dimensionals (#104430). I added a gold circle from the Metallic Enamel Shapes (#141678) to the Rich Razzleberry flower.

That's all for today.

Happy Stamping!

The card stock is Real Red (#106578), Whiper White (#106549) and Daffodil Delight (#121680). The silver star is cut from Silver Foil Sheet (#132178) and the red star is from Red Glimmer Paper (#121790). The framelit set to cut the stars is the Starlight Thinlits Dies (#141840). These framelits can also be purchased in a bundle (#p141840) with the Star Of Light stamp sets, which saves you 10%. The silver star was attached to the card with Stampin' Dimensionals (#104430) and I glued to red star with the Fine-Tip Glue Pen (#138309).
The sentiments were stamped with Real Red ink (#126949) and the star was stamped with Daffodil Delight (#126944). The Whisper White card on the base on the left and right panels were embossed with the Softly Falling embossing folder (#139672). The middle panel was left plain to allow for writing on.
I also made the envelope using the Envelope Punch Board (#133774) from 12x12" Whisper White card (#124302) This Board allows you to make 66 different size envelopes in 4 easy steps. The instructions are included on the board. It is great for the non standard cards or to co-ordinate your envelope and card. I also stamped on the envelope using the Star Of Light stamp set.

Country Livin'

Hello,

Another masculine card today using the Country Livin' stamp set (#c141925, #w141922).

 

The boots have been stamped with VersaMark (#102283) and heat embossed with the Copper Embossing powder (#141636) on Very Vanilla card (#106550). This was attached to a piece of Copper Foil Sheet (#142020), then I wound some Copper Metallic Thread (#141696) around this. The base card is Early Espresso (#121686) and the DSP is from the Moroccan Designer Series Paper (#141645). Happy Birthday and the banner are both from Birthday Banners stamp set (#p141506). The banner was stamped with Early Espresso ink (126974) and the sentiment with Copper Embossing Powder. The banner was cut with the co-ordinating Bunch Of Banners Framelits (#141488). I used Stampin' Dimensionals (#104430) to attach the banner and the copper foil sheet to the card.

Hi Ladies and Gents,

Today's card is great for a male card using the old truck from the Country Livin' stamp set (#c141925, #w141922).

 

The truck was stamped on Very Vanilla card (#106550) with VersaMark (#102283) and Copper Embossing Powder (#141636) which is then heat set with the Heat Tool (#129056). The design on the Dapper Denim card is also stamped with the Copper Embossing powder. This stamp is from the Gorgeous Grunge stamp set (#130514). Happiest of Birthdays to You is from the Birthday Blossoms stamp set (#c140658, #w140655), and stamped with Dapper Denim ink (#141394). I sponged the edges of the Very Vanilla card with Soft Suede ink (#126978).


Well that's all for today.
Hope you have had a great weekend.

Happy Stamping!
Lesley.

Z-fold card

Hello again everyone,

It has been a while since I have posted a blog as I have been away enjoying a great holiday, but I'm now back and time to get ready for Christmas. I have been wanting to make a Z-fold card which is very popular at the moment, so here it is.

 

 

The size for the So Saffron base card (#108611) is 28cm x 15cm, and scored at 7cm and 14cm. Another piece is cut 28cm x4cm and also scored at 7cm and 14cm. This is for the piece attached at the bottom of the card. 2 pieces of Whisper White card (#106549) are cut 14.5cm x 6.5cm, 1 piece 14.5cm x 13.5cm, 1 piece 13.5 x 3.5cm and 2 pieces 6.5cm x 3.5cm. The So Saffron DSP from the Subtles Designer Series Paper Stack (#138437) was cut 14cm x 6cm and 14cm x 13cm.
The sentiment, bird, leaves and small flowers are all stamped using the Best Birds stamp set (#p141525). The other flowers are from the Flower Shop stamp set (#c130942, #w130939) and Petite Petals stamp set (#c133155, #w133152). The inks used are Crushed Curry (#131173) for the sentiment, the bird and the Petite Petals flowers. The other flowers were stamped using Rose Red ink (#126954) and for the leaves I used Crumb Cake (#126975). Stampin' Dimensionals (#104430) were used to attach the bird and larger flowers. Mini Glue Dots (#103683) were used for the other flowers. I added the smallest of the Pearl Basic Jewels (#119247) to the birds eye, and White Perfect Accents (#138416) for the flower centres. The punch used to cut the Flower Shop flowers is the Pansy Punch (#130698) and the Petite Petals punch (#133322) was used to punch the Petite Petals flowers. The bird and small flowers are cut using the Birds & Blooms Thinlits (#141477). I also added some glitter to the wings of the bird and the Crushed Curry flowers using the Clear Wink Of Stella Glitter Brush (#141897).

Till next time,
Happy Stamping!
Lesley.

The cardstock is Island Indigo (#124390), Real Red (#106578) and Whisper White (#106549). For the brickwork, I stamped VersaMark (#102283) to one side of the Brickwall embossing folder (#138288) before rolling through the Big shot (#143263), then I added Gold Embossing Powder (#109129) to the white card, then heat set with the Heat Tool (#129056). The banner from the Birthday Banners stamp set (#p141506) was also gold embossed. Happy Birthday also from this stamp set was stamped with Island Indigo ink (#126986). The banner was cut with a framelit from the Bunch of Banners framelits (#141488). The bird is from the Best Birds stamp set (#p141525), stamped with Island Indigo ink, then cut with the co-ordinating Birds and Blooms Thinlits (#141477).

The head was stamped a 2nd time and punched with the co-ordinating Fox Builder punch (#141470), then added to the card with a Stampin' Dimensional (#104430).

Falling Flowers & Flourish Thinlits

Hi and Welcome,

I think you all know I use a lot of embossing powder but I don't often use the White embossing powder (#109132) - not sure why. So I have used it here for the beautiful flourish from the Falling Flowers stamp set (#c139556, #139553).

 

The Flourish was stamped onto Night Of Navy card (#106557), using VersaMark (#102283) and White embossing powder, then heat set with the Heat Tool (#129056). The banner from Birthday Banners stamp set (#p141506) was stamped with Real Red ink (#126949). The sentiment is from the same stamp set and I used Night Of Navy ink (#126970). With the photopolymer stamps you can curve them, which I have done with the Happy Birthday, so it fitted on the banner. The banner was cut with the Bunch Of Banners Framelits (#141488) then I used Stampin' Dimensionals (#104430) to attach this to the card. The Framelit for the flower is from the Flourish Thinlits (#141478) and I used the Red Glimmer Paper (#121790). I then glued this to a piece of Whisper White card (#106549) and handcut around the edges. The flower was attached with Dimensionals. Real Red (#106578) was used for the base card. 

Have a great day.

Happy Stamping!
Lesley.

Swirly Scribbles Thinlits

Welcome,

Today I have made  a wreath using the Swirly Scribbles Thinlits (#141497). It's great when you have a product that can be used for various cards, so here is a simple Christmas card using the swirls.

 

The cardstock I have used is Real Red (#106578), Whisper White (#106549), Mint Macaron (#138344), and Emerald Envy (#141420). The Designer Series Paper is Presents & Cones DSP (#141986). I embossed the Whisper White card using the Brick Wall folder (#138288). Merriest Wishes from the Merriest Wishes stamp set (#142063) was stamped with Real Red ink (#126949). I made the bow using the  3/8" Stitched Satin Ribbon in Real Red (#141693) and attached this to the wreath with a Mini Glue Dot (#103683). The wreath was glued to the card with Multipurpose Liquid Glue (#110755).

I hope it has been a great day for you.

Till next time,
Happy Stamping!

Lovely As A Tree Christmas card

Hello everyone,

This tree is from the Lovely As A Tree stamp set (#c127793, #w128655) and I have used the Emerald Envy Glitter Stampin' Emboss Powder (#142668), so makes it perfect for a Christmas tree. This beautiful embossing powder also comes in Real Red (#142635), so both are great for Christmas projects. This embossing powder is applied like all the other embossing powders, using VersaMark (#102283) and heat set with the Heat Tool (#129056).

 

The base card is Emerald Envy (#141420) and the other cardstock used is Whisper White (#106549). Happy Christmas from the Seasonal Bells stamp set (#c142107, #w142104) is stamped with Emerald Envy ink (#141396). The co-ordinating framelit for the sentiment comes from the Bunch Of Banners  Framelits (#141488). The ovals were cut using the Layering Ovals Framelits (#141706). The white card for the background was embossed with the Seaside folder (#141481). The Silver ribbon is from the Glitter Ribbon Combo pack (#142015) and Sweet Sugarplum is also included in this pack. I added 2 rows of ribbon to the card before attaching the sentiment with Stampin' Dimensionals (#104430). The ovals were also attached with Dimensionals.

Birthday Banners & Fancy Frost Specialty DSP

Hello ladies,

Have you seen the gorgeous Fancy Frost Specialty Designer Series Paper (#142014) from the Holiday Catalogue. It is the white background card I have used it on today's card. It is white on white textured design. You can use as is, which I have done here, or you can colour it with ink to emphasise the design. There are 6 different designs in the set.


 
 
The base card and flowers are Perfect Plum (#108615). I heat embossed the flowers and the banner using VersaMark (#102283) and Gold Embossing Powder (#109129). This is set with the Heat Tool (#129056). The flowers were punched with the Pansy Punch (#130698). The leaves are cut using a framelit from the Flourish Thinlits (#141478) and I used the Gold Foil Sheet (#132622). The sentiment and banner are from the Birthday Banners stamp set (#p141506). This stamp set is photopolymer which allows you to curve the stamp which I have done for the "Happy Birthday" as well as "it's your big day", so that it fitted on the curve of the banners. The banner was then cut with the Bunch Of Banners Framelits (#141488). The leaves were glued with Multipurpose Liquid Glue (#110755), and one flower was attached with a Stampin' Dimensional (#104430).

Have a great day.

Till next time,
Happy Stamping!

Fabulous Foil Designer Acetate

Hello again,

I'm back after a couple of busy days with a full day Christmas workshop. The ladies had lots of fun and I am holding another one next week. Now to today's card. I used the beautiful Fabulous Foil Designer Acetate (#141653) for the background. What I love about this Acetate, is that one side has gold and turn it over and the design is silver. There are 3 designs in the set.

 

The base card is Mint Macaron (#138344). The flower from Grateful Bunch (#p140691) was stamped with Mint Macaron ink (#138326). I then added the glitter to the petals using the Clear Wink Of Stella Glitter Brush (#141897) and a Gold Metallic Enamel Dot (#141678) to the flower centre. This was  stamped on Very Vanilla card (#106550) as was the sentiment. Happy Birthday is from the Birthday Banners stamp set (#141506) and also stamped with Mint Macaron ink. The banner is also from the Birthday Banners stamp set and stamped with VersaMark (#102283) and Gold Embossing Powder (#109129). The framelit to cut this is from the co-ordinating Bunch Of Banners Framelits (#141488) then attached to the card with Stampin' Dimensionals (#104430).

That's all till next time,
Happy Stamping!

Pretty Pines Thinlits with Presents & Pines DSP

Hello ladies,

I find that I am using more and more Framelits when making my cards and they certainly do make creating cards easier. I have used 4 different sets of framelits on this card.

 

Firstly, I embossed the Whisper White base card (#106549) with the Softly Falling folder (#139672). The DSP is from the Presents & Pinecones Designer Series Paper (#141986). The pinecone and leaves were cut with the Pretty Pines Thinlits Dies (#141851) using Early Espresso card (#121686) and Whisper White card. I used Emerald Envy card (#141420) for the leaves. For the bird, I used the Red Glimmer paper (#121790) and this was cut with the Birds & Blooms Thinlits (#141477). The circles were cut with the Layering Circles Framelits (#141705) and the sentiment was cut with one of the Bunch Of Banners Framelits (#141488). This framelit allows you to cut the inner banner (white card) as well as the outside which I cut from Real Red card (#106578). Merry Christmas was stamped with Real Red ink (#126949) and is from the Flurry Of Wishes stamp set (#p139732). The bird, pinecone and sentiment were all attached to the card with Stampin' Dimensionals (#104430). The leaves were glued with the Multipurpose Liquid Glue (#110755).

That's all for today.

Till next time,
Happy Stamping!

I stamped the flower with VersaMark (#102283) and Gold Embossing Powder (#109129) which was heat set with the Heat Tool (#129056). The cardstock I used for the flower is Cajun Craze (#121683). The card for the leaves is Emerald Envy (#141420) and I stamped the veins with Emerald Envy ink (#141396). The leaves were punched with the Festive Flower Builder punch (#139682). The flower was cut by hand. The DSP is from the Moroccan Designer Series Paper (#141645). The sentiment from Butterfly Basics stamp set (#c138816, #w138813, #p137154) was stamped with Cajun Craze ink (#126965), then cut with the Layering Ovals Framelits (#141706). The flower and sentiment were attached to the card with Stampin' Dimensionals (#104430).

Santa's Sleigh Bundle

Hello,

The Santa Sleigh Bundle (#p143499) is one of many of the bundles available in the Holiday catalogue and has been used for this beautiful Christmas card. 

 

I cut the Whisper White card (#106549) 28 x14cm and scored in half to give me a a square card. I embossed the card with the Softly Falling Embossing folder (#139672). The tree, sleigh, reindeer, presents and teddies are all images from the Santa's Sleigh stamp set (#p142057). Merriest Wishes is from the Merriest Wishes stamp set (#c142066, #w142063). The inks used are Cherry Cobbler (#126966) for the sentiment and presents, Daffodil Delight (#126944) for presents and Soft Suede (#126978) for the teddies. The tree was heat embossed with VersaMark (#102283) and White Embossing Powder (#109132) on Wild Wasabi card (#111850).

Pretty Pines Thinlits Dies

Hello again,

The Pretty Pines Thinlits Dies (#141851) have been used to cut these leaves, pine cones and bow. There are 13 dies in this set, and it is advised to use the Precision Base Plate (#139684) when cutting these detailed images.

 

I embossed the Very Vanilla base card (#106550) using the beautiful Cable Knit Dynamic Impressions Embossing Folder (#143537). This folder creates deep, dimensional embossed impressions. The folder is much thicker than the normal folders so you don't use the top standard cutting pad when rolling through the Big Shot (#143263). The circles were cut with the Layering Cirles Framelits (#141705) from Real Red card (#106578) and Very Vanilla. The cardstock used for the leaves are Garden Green (#108605), Always Artichoke (#108610) and Early Espresso (#121686). I used Crumb Cake (#121685) and Early Espresso card for the pine cones and Real Red card was used for the bow. Happy Christmas from the Seasonal Bells stamp set (#c142107, #w142104) and stamped with Real Red ink (#126949). The co-ordinating framelit to cut this is from the Bunch Of Banners Framelits (#141488), then this was attached with Stampin' Dimensionals (#104430).

Enjoy your day.

Till next time,
Happy Stamping!

Time Of Year

Hi again,

The are times when you just want a simple card and this one would be perfect for many occasions.

 

The card is Whisper White (#106549). I scored some diagonal lines in the top right corner and bottom left corner of the card front.

 

Thinking Of You is from the Time Of Year stamp set (#p141790) and is one of the hostess products. This was stamped with VersaMark (#102283) and heat embossed with Gold Embossing Powder (#109129). I also used this for the butterfly from the Papillon Potpourri stamp set (#c123759, #w132058). The butterfly was punched with the Bitty Butterfly Punch (#129406) and attached to the card with Stampin' Dimensionals (#104430).

Well you can't get much simpler than that, and very quick as well.

Till next time,
Happy Stamping!

Birds & Blooms Thinlits

Hello,

There are 3 different sets of framelits used here on this card.

 

The bird is cut with the Birds and Blooms Thinlits (#141477), the leaves with the Botanical Builder Framelits (#140625) and the ovals with the Layering Ovals Framelits (#141706). I embossed the Whisper White base card (#106549) with the Pretty Paisleys Embossing Folder (#141833). I stamped the background on the Whisper White oval with Crumb Cake ink (#126975) using an image from the Best Birds stamp set (#p141525). Real Red card (#106578) was used for the larger oval and. I used Always Artichoke card (#108610) for the leaves. The flowers from Petite Petals stamp set (#c133155, #w133152) were stamped with Crushed  Curry ink (#131173). These flowers were punched with the Petite Petals punch (#133322) then I added Pearl Basic Jewels (#119247) to the flowers. The Gold Foil Sheets (#132622) were used for the bird. The bird and the flowers were attached to the card with Stampin' Dimensionals (#104430). The leaves were glued with the Fine-Tip Glue Pen (#138309). I didn't add a sentiment as I am often asked for cards without one, so it can be used for any occasion.

That's all for today. I can't believe the weekend is here again. Where do the weeks go?

Till next time,
Happy Stamping!

Botanical Builder Framelits

Hello,

I have used 2 of my favourites products on this card (although I do have a lot of favourites) - the Botanical Builder Framelits (#140625) and the Timeless Textures stamp set (#c140517, #w140514).

I stamped on the Whisper White card (#106549) using Crumb Cake (#126975), Soft Suede (#126978) and Daffodil Delight (#126944). These images are from the Timeless Textures stamp set. Happy Birthday is from the Birthday Banners stamp set (#p141506) and stamped with Tangerine Tango ink (#126946). The White Perfect Accents (#138416) were added to the flower centres. The flowers were attached to the card with Stampin' Dimensionals (104430) and the leaves were glued with the Fine-Tip Glue Pen (#138309).

That's all for today.

Till next time,
Happy Stamping!

Paisleys & Posies Bundle

Hi again,

Yes, another bundle - the Paisleys & Posies stamp set with the Paisley Framelits Dies (#p143515) making a very pretty card. It's great to have so many products that co-ordinate and it certainly makes crafting so much easier.

 

The cardstock is Flirty Flamingo (#141421) and Whisper White (#106549). I embossed the white card with the Pretty Paisleys Textured Impressions Embossing Folder (#141833). I stamped the flowers with Daffodil Delight ink (#126944) and the leaves with Mint Macaron ink (#138326) then cut them with the framelits and glued them to the card using Multipurpose Liquid Glue (#110755). I cut 2 "flowers" from the Flirty Flamingo card also using the Paisley framelits Dies (#141849). I added a silver Metallic Enamel Shape (#141678) to these cutouts. Thank You is from the Thoughtful Banners stamp set (#p141614) and I cut this with the smallest framelit from Bunch Of Banners Framelits (#141488). This was stamped with Flirty Flamingo ink (#141397). Stampin' Dimensionals (#104430) were used to attach the sentiment to the card.

Enjoy your day.

Happy Stamping!
Lesley.

Falling Flowers with Bold Butterfly Framelits

Hello,

I didn't have a lot of time to make a card today but was pleased with how this one turned out. I already had the gold butterfly cut so didn't take long to put it together.

 

The cardstock is Mint Macaron (#138344) and Very Vanilla (#106550). The butterfly is cut from Gold Glimmer Paper (#133719) and I used the Fabulous Foil Designer Acetate (#141653) at the bottom of the card. This Acetate has gold on one side and silver on the other so very versatile. The pack also has 3 different designs. The flourish and sentiment were stamped with Mint Macaron ink (#138326). The stamp sets are Falling Flowers (#c139556, #w139553) for the flourish and Time Of Year (#p141790) for the sentiment. The framelit to cut the birthday banner is the Bunch Of Banners Framelits (#141488) The gold butterfly was cut with the Bold Butterfly Framelits (#138135) and the Mint Macaron butterfly was cut with the Butterflies Thinlits (#137360). I added the Gold 1/4" Natural trim (#131484) at the top and bottom of the acetate. This covers the tape that can be seen through the Acetate. The banner and butterfly was attached to the card with Stampin' Dimensionals (#104430).

That's all for today.

Happy Stamping!

Flourish Thinlits

Hello,

I was asked to make a Thank You card so here it is. I made a large one as there are a number of people to sign it, so I used a piece of A4 Elegant Eggplant card (#108614) and folded it in half.

 

I stamped on the border of the Very Vanilla card (#106550) with Wisteria Wonder ink (#126985) using the Timeless Texures stamp set (#c140517, #w140514). The sentiment was stamped with VersaMark (#102283) and Gold Embossing Powder (#109129) and heat set with the Heat Tool (#129056). The sentiment is from the Mixed Borders stamp set (#p141932). This was attached to the gold Metallic Foil Doilies (#138392) with Stampin' Dimensionals (#104430). The flowers and leaves are cut with the Flourish Thinlits (#141478) from Elegant Eggplant card, Wisteria Wonder card (#124389) and Always Artichoke card (#108610). I glued the flowers to a piece of Very Vanilla card and cut these by hand as I wanted to add these to the card with Dimensionals and that would have been difficult without doing this. The Fine-Tip Glue pen (#138309) is ideal for these delicate cutouts. I added some gold Metallic Enamel Shapes (#141678) the the flowers and sentiment.

Till next time,
Happy Stamping!
Lesley.

Vintage Leaves

Hi everyone,

The Vintage Leaves stamp set (#p138802) has 6 beautiful leaf images and has the co-ordinating Leaflets Framelits Dies (#138283).

 

I heat embossed the Mint Macaron card (#138344) using VersaMark (#102283) and Copper Embossing Powder (#141636). I cut this with the Leaflets Framelits Dies. I also cut a piece of Copper Foil Sheet (#142020) with the same framelit. I stamped on the Very Vanilla base card with an image from the Touches of Texture stamp set (#c143251, #w141934) using Crumb Cake ink (#126975). The Very Vanilla square was embossed with the Woodgrain embossing folder (#127821) and attached to a piece of Copper Foil Sheet. The sentiments from the Gift Of Love stamp set (#p141796) were stamped with Mint Macaron ink (#138326). I used Stampin' Dimensionals (#104430) to attach the leaves to the card. 

Have a great week.

Till next time,
Happy Stamping!
Lesley.

Foxy Friends

Hi,

The Foxy Friends stamp set (#p141549) is so cute and there are 29 photopolymer images in the set. It also has the co-ordinating Fox Builder punch (#141470) and of course is available as a bundle (#142326) which means you save $$$$.

I made this card for our grandson. He loves to look out the window to watch what's happening in the neighbourhood, so I thought having the fox look through the window was appropriate for him.

 

The base card is Very Vanilla (#106550), and I also used this to stamp the fox and the greeting on. The DSP is Moroccan Designer Series Paper (#141645) and the window is from Delightful Dijon card #138345). I stamped the trees from the Lovely As A Tree stamp set (#c127793, #w128655) using Garden Green ink (#126973) onto Soft Sky card (#131292). The window was cut out using the Hearth & Home Thinlits (#139666). The fox was stamped with Pumpkin Pie ink (#108601) and the eyes and nose were stamped with Archival Basic Black ink (#140931). Happy Birthday and Banner are from the Birthday Banners stamp set (#p141506) and the banner was cut with the Bunch Of Banners Framelits (#141488). The inks used are Delightful Dijon (#138327) and Garden Green. I used Stampin' Dimensionals (#104430) to attach the banner and the window to the card.

Till the end of October Stampin' Up! have a fantastic offer on Designer Series Paper - buy 3 get one free. The specialty papers or stacks are not included. For more information please contact me.

Till next time,
Happy Stamping!
Lesley.

Merry Tags Framelits Dies

Hello and welcome,

These Merry Tags Framelits Dies (#141835) make it so easy to create a variety of tags. They are also great to add to a card.

 

 

For the card I used Real Red card (#106578), Daffodil Delight (#121680) and Whisper White (#106549). I embossed the Whisper White card with the Softly Falling embossing folder (#139672). The squares were cut with the Layering Squares Framelits (#141708). I stamped on the white square with the image from the Merriest Wishes stamp set (#c142066, #w142063) using Daffodil Delight ink (#126944). Merriest wishes was stamped with Real Red ink (#126949). The tag was attached with Stampin' Dimensionals (#104430) and the ribbon is 1/8" Gold Ribbon (#134583).

The tags were made with a variety of papers and inks, using the Merriest Wishes stamp set and Merry Tags Framelits Dies which come in a bundle (#c143520, #w143519), which means you will make a saving of 10%.

Enjoy your weekend.

Till next time,
Happy stamping!

Star of Light Bundle

Hello,

Another variation using the Star Of Light stamp set (#p142110) and the Starlight Thinlits Dies (#143508). The bundle is #143508.

 

For the base card and star I used Cherry Cobbler card (#121681). The card front is Whisper White (#106549). I stamped the star flourish with VersaMark (#102283) and embossed this with the Silver Stampin' Emboss Powder (#109131), which was heat set with the Heat Tool (#129056). The star was glued using Multipurpose Liquid Glue (#110755) directly to the card. The sentiment was stamped with Cherry Cobbler ink (#126966).

As I usually like to add dimension to my cards I then made a second card with a slight variation.

 

I cut a piece of Whisper White card using the plain framelit and glued the Cherry Cobbler star to this. This then allowed me to add Stampin' Dimensionals (#104430) to the star, then attach it to the card. I also glued a small star cut from Silver Glimmer Paper (#135314) to the card.

That's all for today.

Happy Stamping!
Lesley.
