Happy Birthday Thinlits

Welcome again,

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




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


Up & Away Thinlits

Hi,

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


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

I hope you having a great weekend.

Mini Pizza Boxes

Hello and welcome again,

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


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

Have a great weekend.

Quilt Top TIEF & Quilt Builder Dies

Hi,

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

The scalloped square was cut with the Layering Squares Framelits (#141708) from Gold Foil Sheet (#132622). I used the Quilt Builder Framelits Dies (#144673) to cut the Basic Black card and DSP from the Bundle Of Love Specialty Designer Series Paper (#144143). I glued the black card and DSP with the Fine-Tip Glue Pen (#138309) to the gold square. This was then attached to the card with Stampin' Dimensionals (#104430). Happy Birthday is from the Birthday Banners stamp set (#p141506) and stamped with VersaMark (#102283) and Gold Stampin' Emboss Powder (#109129) and heat set with the Heat Tool (#129056).

Quilt Builder Framelits Dies

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

The base card is Cherry Cobbler (#121681). The beautiful design on the Whisper White card (#106549) is cut with a die from the Swirly Snowflakes. I stamped the baubles from the Carols Of Christmas stamp set (#c144804, #w144801) using Crumb Cake ink (#126975), then stamped again on a small piece of card using VersaMark (#102283) and Gold Stampin' Emboss Powder (#109129). This was heat set with the Heat Tool (#129056). I then cut these with the co-ordinating die from the Card Front Builder Thinlits Dies (#144674) and attached them over the originally stamped image on the white card, using Mini Stampin' Dimensionals (#144108). The Foil Tape is the Year Of Cheer Specialty Washi Tape (#144644). The sentiment is from the Snowflake Sentiments stamp set and this was stamped Cherry Cobbler ink (#126966).

Move Me Thinlits

Hi,

This butterfly is cut with the Move Me Thinlits (#143732) from Tangerine Tango card (#116206). Doesn't it look great with the black and white.



The base card is also Tangerine Tango, and the other cardstock is Basic Black (#121688) and Whisper White (#106549). The white card is embossed with the Layered Leaves 3D Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder (#143704). These dynamic folders create deep dimensional embossed impressions. When using these folders, because of the extra thickness, you only need one of the standard cutting plates in the "sandwich". So the sandwich consists of the Big Shot Platform on the base, followed by the Folder with a single sheet of card, then the standard cutting pad on top. The beautiful black and white Ribbon is the 7/8" Striped Ribbon (#144624). This ribbon has wire in the sides which make it easy to make beautiful bows. The butterfly was attached to the ribbon with Mini Stampin' Dimensionals (#144108) and I added some Rhinestone Basic Jewels (#144220) to the butterfly and sentiment. Congratulations is from the Colorful Seasons stamp set (#p143726), stamped with Tangerine Tango ink (#126946) and punched with the Classic Label punch (#141491). This was also attached with Mini Dimensionals.

Firstly I stamped the baubles onto Whisper White card (#106550). I stamped them again onto some offcuts of white card using VersaMark (#102283) and  I embossed them with the Gold Stampin' Emboss Powder (#109129) and heat set them with the Heat Tool (#129056). I then used the die from the coordinating Card Front Builder Thinlits Dies (#144674) to cut out the baubles.

The sentiment is from the Snowflake Sentiments stamp set (#144817), and stamped with Cherry Cobbler ink (#126966).
