25 March 2013 – It’s Tea Time!!

I can’t believe that Easter is almost here!! The year is just flying by!!

At Stamp Club earlier this month, we had a play with the new Borders Scoring Plate in the Seasonal Catalogue. You can score gorgeous borders and patterns on to cards and scrapbook pages.

I found a lovely card on Pinterest by Suzette here. I thought it was gorgeous and that we could give it a go. I didn’t have the same paper, so I went with Tea for Two DSP. I love this floral paper in it!!

We had fun doing the embossing around the cut out shape. It’s something that is going to take a bit of practice to do, I think!! We dyed the very vanilla ribbon by wetting it with water in a spray bottle and then scrunching it up and rubbing onto the certainly celery ink pad. We then used the heat gun to speed up the drying process. To colour the flower trim, I didn’t wet them but just rubbed them on the ink pad. (My fingers looked a bit pinky on the ends!!)

When I stamped the flowers from Just Believe stamp set onto the background, I actually stamped off first and then stamped it, so that it was only just a shadow of an image.

I hope you like it! Please leave me a comment below.

28 September 2012 – Christmas Gift Box

There are lots of interesting new items tucked away in the new 2012-2013 Catalogue.  Each time I look through, I find something new!  I recently discovered the Kraft Gift boxes on page 161.  They are $4.95 for 4 boxes which is a great price!

I watched Patty Stamps video here as inspiration for my box.  I have used one of the new sticky rounds to attach the rosette to the top of the box which made it really easy to stick it firmly to the box.  I have stamped the box using Snowflake Soiree stamp set.  The greeting on the front of the box is Heart of Christmas and I have used the Apothecary Accents framelits for the shape.  You can’t see it well in the photo but I have put a Vintage Faceted designer button and place a pearl jewel in the middle.

Stamps:  Heart of Christmas, Snowflake Soiree

Paper:  Candlelight Christmas Specialty DSP, Very Vanilla

Ink:  Cherry Cobbler, Gumball Green

Accessories:  Simply Scored, Kraft gift boxes, Scalloped Tulle Ribbon, pearls, vintage faceted designer buttons, Big Shot, Apothecary Accents framelits.

26 September 2012 – More Christmas Ornaments

There are so many gorgeous Christmas ornaments at the moment just waiting to be made!!  And covered in glitter!!

I saw this first one at Stamp with Callena and thought it looked lovely but not too hard to do.  I was so excited to see the Snow Flurry die in the Holiday catalogue as snow flakes are so pretty!!  Just because we have a stinking hot summer doesn’t mean that we can’t appreciate snow flakes!!

I used my new silicone craft sheet to help make the rosettes whilst I used my hot glue gun.  You fold up the strip of scored paper and then put hot glue on one side and press it onto the craft sheet until it has cooled.  Then fold the paper into a circle, put a dob more of hot glue to join the two ends and there you have it, a lovely rosette!

I think these will definitely be a project for Stamp Club!  I think they would look lovely made with DSP as well.

Paper:  Cherry Cobbler, Silver Glimmer paper

Accessories:  Simply Scored, Silicone craft sheet, Big Shot, Snow Flurry Die.

25 July 2012 – Card Chest

I recently visited one of my downline and she showed me some of the amazing 3d items that she has made.  She gave me a template for a card chest by Jenny Moors, an UK Stampin’ Up! demonstrator.  Here’s a link to her blog, http://stampingmoments.blogspot.com.au/.  As it was the birthday of one of my other downlines, I thought I would give this a try.  I’m happy with the result, I hope you like it!!  Here’s the chest.

Here’s the cards.  For the small cards, I made the envelopes using the new Diagonal Scoring plate for the Simply Scored.

Paper:  Mocha Morning DSP, Cherry Cobbler, Black, Crumb Cake, Very Vanilla
