I had a workshop recently and the hostess wanted to do a thank you card as she gives out plenty of them.
I found a card on Pinterest by Klompen Stampers, here, which was the inspiration for my card.
I have a couple of packets of the Typeset DSP, so I wanted to use some of that on my card. We stamped the flower from the Choose Happiness stamp set on the DSP in Rose Red and the leaf outline in Crumb Cake. I added a strip of gold glimmer paper down each side of the dsp for a bit of sparkle.
I stamped the sentiment from the Me = Grateful stamp set and cut it out using the new Lots of Labels framelits. I also cut out the next size framelit and did some paper piercing using the updated essentials piercing kit. Love that look!!
Here’s a close up of the paper piercing.
If you would like to host a workshop and make a cute card like this one, I’d love to have one with you!! Just contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org and we can make a date!!
Stampin’ Up! Product List
I’ve had a busy couple of weeks and didn’t get a chance to join in with last week’s Case-ing the Catty challenge. I was still preparing for Saturday’s class on Friday night and having a bit of a blank, so I thought I would check out what my talented friend, Jess had made at The Paper Caper.
Her card is simply stunning!! She has cased a card from the Love and Sympathy section of the catalogue but put her own special “Jess” touch on it!! Click here to check out her card.
Now I’m not a fan of fussy cutting but there are some occasions where it is simply necessary. And how lovely does it look? Like Jess, I used the Timeless Love stamp set. Using my stamp-a-ma-jig to line it up, I stamped the flower twice with Staz-on ink. I then cut it out and started to colour using my aqua painter and Perfect Plum, Pink Pirouette, Mint Maccaron and a little touch of So Saffron ink. I used the Circle of Spring stamp set for the sentiment in the middle.
Add a doily (love), some of the new Tip Top Taupe dotted ribbon, a strip of silver glimmer paper and a linen thread bow and it’s all done. Pretty, isn’t it!!
By the way, it’s not too late, you can still get 2 set of stamps for free when you purchase the starter kit!! This fabulous offer ends tomorrow evening, 30 June. Click here to join my team today!!
Stampin’ Up! Product List
I’m excited to share with you that I am a part of the Design Team of a new challenge blog called CASE-ing the Catty. You can check it out, here.
Every Friday, we will be sharing projects which we have cased (Copy and Share Everything) from the latest Stampin’ Up! catalogue. We will be working our way through the different sections of the catalogue, starting with Gift and Packaging.
There are so many great projects to choose from! I decided to case the cute Tag a Bag Gift box on the top left hand corner of page 14 of the Aussie catalogue.
I love these boxes!! They are easy to assemble and all you need to do is add a few bits and pieces and you’re done!! I haven’t bought much Designer Series Paper from the new catalogue yet but the first one I did get was Gold Soiree. Every sheet features Metallic Gold Ink!! Bring on the bling!!!
And what goes with gold dsp but gold sequins!! A paper doily and gold sequins is a match in heaven. I also tied it with some whisper white cotton ribbon.
And of course, I had to stamp my greeting (from Label Love) in gold ink. You know, you can never have too much gold!!
Let me know what you think!! and make sure you join in with the Challenge.
Check out what the rest of the team has created, here.
Where is the year going!!! It seems to be flying past already!!
We had stamp club on the weekend and I wanted to share a project using the gorgeous Winter Frost Specialty Designer Series Paper. I really love this DSP and wanted to show how it could be used in a non-christmassy way. I had not used all the shimmery paper in the pack (shock, horror, I know!!), so I decided to use that one as the background.
I was inspired by Dani Dziama, here. I loved her card, especially with the doily.
I gave the girls a sneaky peak at a new product being featured in the Sale-a-bration catalogue, the mini banner punch!! Is that not the cutest punch you’ve ever seen!! I am hopeless at making the ends of banners even so this is perfect for me.
