Crafty Creations April 29th

Thanks to the inspiration from Stampin’ Up! promotion for #imbringingbirthdaysback, today at Crafty Creations we made these two card. Next week we will make the next two in the set and then create a card holder/purse to put them in as a gift set.

What a great idea Shannon West had to promote the delightful cards we all create. I agree never mind sending text messages, emails or online greetings on Facebook. Nothing beats a personal hand made greeting card. Lets all adopt the hashtag greeting.

Get your stamp here and add it to all your envelopes.

Some ladies weren’t able to be at Crafty’s today. Get well soon ladies! But those that were there enjoyed stamping and coloring the birthday cake from Endless Birthday Wishes.  Adding some DSP  scraps and greetings, a little bling and ribbon completed their cards.

Then they made matching envelopes.  Well done once again!

Crafty Creations Mother’s Day

Well what a week it’s been.

Just to cap it off, today the pressure was on with a surprise on the inside of our card. I created a real challenge, with the little butterfly floating above the card.  CC Mother's DayInside butterfly

We used the pretty flowers from Flowering Fields, (Retired)  and stamped them onto a 7cm circle then coloured  them in. The small butterfly was popped up.

A piece of Blushing Bride was scored in half for the base card.

Butterflies  from Papillon Pourri  were randomly stamped inside on Wisteria Wonder.  The Whisper White was scored at  1″ 3¾”and 4½”  folded then cut with smaller circle on the fold.

Two butterflies were stamped in Melon Mambo and glued back to back onto a piece of Window Sheet. This was inserted under the fold and glued at each end, to give the floating effect. The White card stock was then glued to the center of the Blushing Bride leaving a small gap either side of crease to allow card to close.

As you can see the ladies added various greetings and these were stamped onto Wisteria Wonder in Memento.  With a piece of Washi Tape across  behind the circle, a bow and found heart button  the card was complete.CC April22 Centre Pic

If you look closely you will see one lady chose her own design and a little heart from a chocolate. Well done Rose! Good to see individual creativity.
Till next week.

Crafty Creations Washi Tape

Well girls! That was fun and how exciting are these lovely cards.

I do have to credit Craftyperson for the first card idea.

Crafty Creations

Our first card was made by using the Large leaf  from  the Botanical Builder Framelit Die, to create a window in the Basic Black CS.  Washi Tape was layered on to a separate piece of card stock then glued behind the leaf. The Left hand side  was cut with the long leaf die.

This was then popped up highlighting the Washi tape. This was  then adhered onto Whisper White CS and  3 small flowers and Words from Expression Natural Elements glued with sticky dots to the front.

As I said to the ladies, you can take it to the next level by some sponging around the tree, or by colouring the grass and the leaves.  It would work well as a Sympathy card as well.

As this is my “off work week” I have included a tutorial  here for you to createone  yourselves.

Till next time. Enjoy!


Crafty Creations 18th March

Pleased to see our two new ladies enjoyed themselves enough to return this week.  Well done Ladies.

Having had a couple requests for other uses with the Envelope Board besides Envelopes and with Easter fast approaching it seemed an ideal time to make a box. There have been many examples of this bag in a box on  so I won’t name names today, just a thank you to all who post there.
We used the Have A Cuppa DSP and the Friends and Flowers Bundle for the Rabbit. Bunny feet were from Flower Flair Framelits  and the small oval punch. The tail is the tiny flower in the Botanical Builders Framelits. The 1” punch worked  for the head and rear end.
 The ears were colour in Pink Pirouette and the greeting just one I happened to have.
