Create a Quick Set of Perfectly Plaid Cards

I’ve got some cards to show you today with the Wrapped in Plaid suite which is probably my favourite suite in the catalogue. What I love is the traditional  colours and the simplicity of the punch. My cards use the same simple layout and are very quick to create. 

Create 3 cards with a simple layout for Christmas. Great for stamp a stacks

I used the Pine Tree Punch from the Perfectly Plaid bundle (Item #151143) to punch out the trees from the Designer Series Paper. These were then mounted with Dimensionals onto a 2″ circle from matching cardstock (colours I have used here are Night of Navy, Cherry Cobbler and Shaded Spruce). Then I added a 2 1/4″ Gold Foil circle.

I stamped the sentiment in the coordinating ink on Whisper White cardstock 14.2 cm x 9.9 cm. The strip of Wrapped in Plaid Designer Series Paper (Item #149596) has been cut to 14.8 cm x 5.2 cm.

These cards took me minutes to make and would be great to mass produce. The addition of the Gold Foil adds an extra festive feel to match with the gold on the DSP.

Stampin’ Dreams Blog Hop – Holiday Catalogue Sneak Peek

Hello Stamping Friends,

It’s great to have you visiting me today at Stamping Flair. I’m so excited to be participating in the Stampin’ Dreams blog hop and to be able to share with you a sneak peek from the brand new Holiday Catalogue.

Stampin' Dreams Blog Hop July Designer Series Paper

With so many products to choose from, it was really hard to work out what I wanted to highlight today. I have chosen the Most Wonderful Time Product Medley to feature in my projects. 

Christmas card with Most Wonderful Time of the Year Product Medley

This Product Medley is a bunch of beautiful products in a box and when I opened it, it was like a Christmas present. There are so many things in the box. Here’s what you get. 

  • 48 sheets 6″x6″ Designer Series Paper (8 sheets of 6 double sided designs)
  • 12 gold foil card fronts (4 each of 3 designs)
  • 7 sticker sheets
  • 9.1m gold/white tinsel trim
  • 58 adhesive-backed gold faceted stars
  • 6 dies
  • 11 piece stamp set

So you can make a LOT of cards with this Product Medley. 

The tree has been stamped with the new Delicata Golden Glitz Metallic ink. This ink range also comes in Silvery Shimmer and Celestial Copper. These inks are beautiful and I love the metallic look of them. The tree is stamped on Shimmery White cardstock. I then inked up a clear block with Pear Pizzazz and Old Olive and used an aqua painter to pick up the colour for the tree. 

Ice Glitter on Christmas tree, Holiday Catalogue 2019

Then I poured Ice Stampin’ Glitter over the tree by applying liquid glue in the areas I wanted covered with glitter and poured the glitter over. 

To coordinate with the card I also made this cute mini Curvy Keepsake box. It’s a die that cuts this out in one piece and it is so easy to assemble. What a cute little package to give with this card at Christmas. I embellished it with the ribbon and sticker from the Product Medley.

Krea8tors August 2019 Blog Hop – Color Challenge Farms

Kre8tors Blog Hop August Color Challenge

Hi Friends,

So glad that you have stopped by today. I’m excited to be participating for the first time in the Kre8tors Blog Hop.  This month’s theme is The Hood River Fruit Loop. It’s a collection of farms in the Hood River Valley in Oregon, USA that offer fresh fruits, vegetables, flowers, and other items straight off the farm. 

We had to select 3 of the 5 featured colours beneath this beautiful photo. I have chosen Early Espresso, Petal Pink and Cherry Cobbler. Kre8tors Blog Hop August 2019 Color Challenge Stampin' Up!

The Whisper White layer has been stamped in Early Espresso with the script from the Very Versailles stamp set. Then I added the flourish from Leave a Little Sparkle in Cherry Cobbler. 3 leaves were stamped on top with Early Espresso. To complete the background, I used the Cherry Cobbler Stampin’ Write marker and created the splatter effect by flicking the brush side against the cap of the marker. This creates the subtle splatter look.

Next I drew 2 lines in pencil to indicate where I was going to cut through. The vertical line was 2.5 cm from left edge at top and 4.5 cm from left edge at bottom. The horizontal line was 11.5 cm from top on left side and 7.5 cm from top on right side.

I trimmed about 1/2 cm on either side of the pencil mark which forms the gap so the Early Espresso can show through. 

I used the new Daisy Lane bundle and stamped and punched 3 daises, layering and curling the petals with a bone folder to create the flower.

Fab Friday 169 – True Love has Four Paws

Hello everyone,

My inspiration today is  a sketch challenge from the Fab Friday Challenge Blog and … wait for it…. International cat day. We have a rescue cat, Toulouse and she’s been with us 2 years now. 

Fab Friday 169 Sketch Challenge

I picked Smoky Slate as my base card and created a layer on top with the Button Button embossing folder. I chose this folder because it reminded me of Toulouse as sometimes she can be a bit nuts and loves to get in my box of ribbons and craft stuff. 

The cat was punched out of Rococo Rose Designer Series Paper.

Create a handmade card with a cat, easy to punch out

I die cut the circle and stamped the sentiment. Then I layered the gingham cat on top of the ribbon and felt border from the Follow Your Art Embellishment Kit. The cute felt flower around kitty’s neck is also from this kit which comes with several embellishments in Blushing Bride, Calypso Coral, Coastal Cabana and Crushed Curry.

Kylie Bertucci’s International Blog Highlights August – Encouragement

Thank you for stopping by my blog, Stamping Flair, today. Demonstrators from around the world are being highlighted internationally by Kylie Bertucci and the theme this month is Encouragement.

I chose hues of greens and blues for this card to make it bright and cheery and perfect for our theme. 

Oh Darling, you are fabulous ….I love this sentiment and think it would really lift someone up. 

The background was created by stamping the leaves in Soft Sea Foam and Granny Apple Green. I love the bright, summery feel of these shades of green. I then added the heat embossed, Gold leaves which really add to the cheering up sentiment of my card. 

To create the double colour on the sentiment, I used the Stamparatus. First I stamped in Pretty Peacock. Then moving the cardstock a tiny bit to the right, I masked the sentiment with washi tape and inked the stamp with Granny Apple Green. Then I stamped the sentiment which creates the pretty double colour on the word ‘darling’. 

I mounted the sentiment on another oval die cut from Pretty Peacock Cardstock and embossed with the Tufted Embossing Folder. This has then been adhered onto a Soft Sea Foam oval to create a pretty, focal mage. 

The bow was formed by snipping a section of the linen ribbon apart. I created a mock bow using glue dots to secure in place. 

With card making, we have the ability to brighten someone’s day by giving them a handmade card. Who could you encourage and share your beautiful cards with today? A birthday, congratulations, anniversary, thinking of you or just because… the recipient will love it.

Perennial Essence Easy to Make Butterfly Card

Hand Painted and Timeless

What’s the next best thing to having one of Claude Monet’s painting hanging in  your home? Stampin’ Up! Perennial Designer Series Paper! One of our product designers, Julie Alusa, went to New York and was so inspired by Monet’s works of art, she decided to paint her own masterpiece.

In her own words: ‘While I was admiring Monet’s massive water lily paintings at the Museum of Modern Art and Metropolitan, I was inspired to do a Monet-esque page in the Designer Series Paper of impressionistic water lilies.’

My card today uses a very simple layout and to showcase one of these beautiful papers. 

Create a handmade card with simple layout using Monet type Perennial Essence paper with butterfly

I attached the ribbon with Tear & Tape then adhered the Designer Series Paper onto card base. The butterfly is part of a large die which has a group (or a kaleidoscope!) of butterflies, I cut one of these off to be the focal point of this card and layered the silver on top of Blushing Bride to make it stand out.
