This card was a request, by the group, to try a reflection technique. Immediatley the “Lovely as a Tree’ stamp set came to mind.
One of the things with community groups is that there are always new members and others moving on so whilst some had used this technique for half it was new and the others happy to have a refresher.
We used Dapper Denim ink and card stock for the predominant colour, and created the image on Very Vanilla CS. After using the window sheet to transfer the image below the trees we then over stamped the top trees in Crushed Curry, to create Autumn tones and shadows. . Whilst waiting for the ink to be perfectly dry the greeting on a torn piece of vellum was stamped with Stazon.
The accents I created for the ladies before hand by punching out tiny dots from Dapper Denim then filling them with our retired Glossy Accents – called liquid glass in other products.
Then the sponging began. We used Old Olive, Dapper Denim, Soft Sky and Smokey Slate. The water was completed with the waves from High Tide and the sky with the birds from the same set. Add the sentiment, a touch of Wink of Stella on the water and all done. For a first attempt I think they have all turned out rather well.
Hi Fellow Crafters, ,
Glad you could come back and see what those ‘crafty’ ladies have been up too.
Aren’t their creations just lovely!
A simple card but so many possibilities and colour combinations available to ring the changes.
Original card with details posted on June 3rd here.
Well done everyone.
See you at the catalogue launch on Thursday!
This card was part of my Swaps for the New Catalogue and will also double as my class card this week. With so much happening in the Stampin’ Up! World this month it’s good to be able to get value and maximum time for effort expended, whilst at the same time creating beautiful cards and bringing smiles to my happy stampers.
I have a little sheet that is added with the swap which includes all the products used that I have included at the bottom of this blog. One great thing with this card is that the colours can be swapped around really easily. Next week I will show you how the ladies at class have done just that, thanks to the matching of Stampin’ Up! products and the Colour Theory DSP.
The Happy Birthday template is really easy to use and I have highlighted the bottom half with Wink of Stella but it doesn’t show on the image. The inspiration for this card, as I explained in a previous blog, came from the new Catalogue I just changed it about a bit.
Just loving the New Catalogue. Remember you can purchase from my store by clicking on the image and time of night or day, providing you reside in Australia.
Happy Crafting, Stay safe and thanks for stopping bye.
This little fella has been lingering in my stamping supplies for a while now and as there are no new babies on the way I had wondered when he would get some use. Then Elijah turned one and YES! I know what I can do.
He is filled with Love is Baby Bear. From the Falling Petals (very like little hearts) embossing folder to his Dapper Denim Heart of love at the front.
Teddy was first stamped with Soft Suede, then I stamped off with Early Espresso and finally just Early Espresso.
I must say it took me a couple practices to line him but am very happy with final results. His bow is a two step with Soft Sky followed by Dapper Denim.
The sentiment LOOK WHO’S TURNING, stamped in Emerald Envy is from the Number of Years stamp set, as is the number 1, which was stamped in Dapper Denim and cut out with the Large Number Framelit Dies.
The circle was cut with the large Stitched framelit Die. That way I get to use the circle on another project. Just located the name of the DSP — Blooms and Bliss.
The heart was from the snowflake Card thinlit die, now retired. Behind the heart is some Gold Metal thread. Apart from my Teddy practice this was a quick and simple card.
Hope you enjoyed him.
PS : This is really a post for my upline who gave me a challenge to post to some of the social media sites so always up for a challenge and here it is.!!
Sitting here looking at the streaming sunshine makes these cards just right. Unlike the Northern Hemisphere summer is officially here and what better way to express that summer feeling than with Fresh Fruit, which is also the name of the stamp set used on our Happy Birthday Cards last week.
Whilst I don’t have an image this card had a secret gift card holder inside similar to this one.
To fit an A6 card you will need 1 x 25cm x 14cm or 9¾” x 5½”. Scored at 10cm, 12.5cm, and 15cm or 37/8″ 47/8″ and 57/8″ across the shortest length. Create a mountain fold, and punch a small section from the middle,( Use a window punch, oval, or Decorative Label punch). Glue either side of the cut out, but not across the bottom. Insert into base card.
We used the Stitched Shaped Framelits and of course Pear Pizzaz outlined in Garden Green and Peeekaboo Peach outlined in Calypso Coral.
There was a choice of pears or branches for the background from the crisp, colourful and almost edible Fruit Stand DSP. Love how they have all turned out.
Our break up is Friday the 16th I will post some pics of all the goodies.
Cheers happy Stamping.
No post last week as we didn’t complete our cards. But we managed to get that finished and one more as well. Everyone fell in love with the cute Bambi from some retired Stampin’ Up! DSP.
We did use the Torn Paper Technique to create the snow drifts at Bambi’s feet, then highlighted it with some Dazzling Diamonds sprinkled on Liquid glass. The snowflakes, with the smaller one stamped off, were inked with Tip Top Taupe – a change for me from Crumb Cake – and came from the now retired Endless Wishes. The lovely bold sentiment is from Flurry of Wishes in the current catalogue, stamped in Chocolate Chip. The pine cones and needles are from Peace This Christmas, stamped in Chocolate Chip and Garden Green.
A Wink of Stella, and some pearls finished this card.
Our other card, from the week before, used the Totally Trees Stamp Set, Botanicals For You and The Botanical Builder Thinlits. The Whisper White was embossed with the Petal Burst EF,over laid with a strip of Irresistibly Yours DSP that was coloured in Pool Party. Some masking of the sun and water in Pool Party and Sweet Sugar Plum made the background with the island, leaves and flowers just finishing the scene.
It feels like we were at a Tropical Island, just waiting for the bar tender to bring us some Piña Coladas or Margarita by the waters edge. Ahhhh!
Of course like most people these days some of the inspiration was from Pinterest. Where would be without it?
We were zipping her and there on Friday. We had the bike out and off we went. I realised that not everyone is enamored by motor bikes so there were alternatives to choose from.
The motor bike is from the One Wild Ride in the Annual Catalogue and the Wedding Car and Truck are from retired Stampin’ Up Products.We used the Brick Wall EF on the Cajun Craze CS with some Basic black ink, then added some moss with the textured stamp from the One Wild Ride set. A little bit of twine was wrapped around it before using Stampin’ Up! Dimensionals to pop it up on the Basic Black Card Base.
The sentiments were stamped then cut with a die from the Bunch of Banners Framelit dies. I really like the addition of the black frame that can be created with the same Banner. Simply secure the Cajun Craze Sentiment in the frame with some Tear and Tape Adhesive at the back, before adding the Dimensionals.
Thanks to the Stampin’ Up! team for this card idea.
Next week we are making a beach themed birthday card.
Come back and check it out.
