Wood Words – Thank You

Wood-Words---Close-Up1

I created a couple of Thank You Cards last week for my customers of which most have already been posted (forgot to take photos) but I do have a couple that I will use for the remainder of September.  I’ve used the Wood Words Stamp Set.

Wood-Words---Lemon-Lime-TwiThey were all created with the 2017-2019 In Colours & the lovely fantastic Note Cards & Envelopes – Whisper White, Page 195 of the Annual Catalogue.  Along with the In Colours I also used Sahara Sand which worked perfectly with the colours.  I am loving these for quick & simple cards.

The first lot of cards sent out were stamped directly onto the Note Card itself while the next lot of cards had a layer of contrasting In Colour CS.  My samples today have Lemon Lime Twist & Berry Burst.

All I did was randomly stamp my images in Sahara Sand & Lemon Lime Twist onto a piece of Whisper White CS.  The sentiment is from the same set & stamped direct onto the Card in Lemon Lime Twist.  I then layered it onto a piece of Lemon Lime Twist CS beforeWood-Words---Berry-Burst adhering to the Note Card.

My 2nd card I am showing you is the Berry Burst one which was created exactly the same way.

I repeated the same process for the other cards but substituting the In-Colours each time.

I’m not too sure which one is my favourite as I am loving these In-Colours.  Which is your favourite?

Until next time, Happy Stampin!

Kylie’s International Top Ten August Winners Blog Hop

Top 10 Winners

Welcome to the Top Ten Winners Blog Hop!   Do you remember my post from a couple of weeks ago asking for you to vote?  Check it out by clicking on “Teacher’s Gifts”.  Thank you to every one of you who took the time to vote – it worked!  Because of your votes, myself & other lucky talented Demonstrators get to hop along with Kylie (Australia’s #1 Stampin’ Up!® Demonstrator).   I feel very honoured to be among this group, so thank you once again!

You are visiting from Corinne Blake who is from the USA.  I do hope you enjoyed Connie’s lovely creation.

Last month the theme was Teacher’s Gifts.  Well, for this blog hope, it is the same themeDelightful-Daisy-Crate---Em but creating a new item.  I did started out with butterflies in my head but now that I’ve finished it, they do look like funny sort of butterflies.  Yep, I picked up the wrong item, but never mind, I am happy with the project & more than happy with the colours.

To create my crate, I die cut a piece of the Thick Whisper White CS using the Wood Crate FramelitWood Crate Framelit As I wanted to try something different with my create, I mixed a small drop of Bermuda Bay Refill into a dab of Embossing Paste, placed  one of the Pattern Party Decorative Masks over top & spread the Paste over the crate shapes prior to putting it together.   I repeated the same process onto a piece of Whisper White CS which I was going to be using for my card.

Delightful-Daisy---FlowerThe flower was created by punching 2 daisies from a piece of Whisper White CS with the Daisy Punch, sponged with a Sponge Dauber with Daffodil Delight, Pumpkin Pie & then Daffodil Delight on both shapes prior to layering onto each other.  The centre was created by sponging a piece of scrap Whisper White CS using the same process, stamping the centre from the Daisy Delight Stamp Set, punching with the 1/2″ Circle Punch & adhering to the centre.  To complete my flower, I added a Gold Faceted Gem to the middle.

The leaves were stamped onto a scrap piece of Whisper white CS, first with Lemon Lime Twist, then with Old Olive, punched with the Leaf Punch, scored down the middle to give them dimensional before adhering to the flowers.  They are from the Painted Harvest Stamp Set.  Sorry the photo doesn’t really do them justice.

I placed 2 Ferrero Rochers into a Cello Bag, stamped the sentiment from Wood Words Stamp Set onto scrap Whisper White CS in Bermuda Bay, die cut using the Wood Crate Framelits & tied it to the Cello Delightful-Daisy---EmbossinBag with Whisper White Baker’s Twine (retired).  I finished the bag off by tying a small bow from the Daffodil Delight Double Stitched Ribbon

For my card, I created another flower using the above steps, layered the embossed Card onto a piece of Daffodil Delight CS & then to the Base Card – Whisper White.  The leaves were created the same way as the crate.

I’m pretty happy with the end result even though the flowers were meant to be butterflies.  A happy mistake in this instance.

Next up is Karen……

Until next time, Happy Stampin’

Kylie’s International Blog Highlights

It is that time again where I am once again playing along with Kylie’s International Blog Highlights which is so much fun.  This month our theme is Gratitude inspired by Thailand!

What is Kylie’s International Highlights?   It is where Demonstrators from all around the world take part in a monthly Blog Highlight.  It’s a great way to get to know other Demonstrators & see projects using current Stampin’ Up!® product.  Each month Kylie has a different theme so we get to play with different product.

Vote for Me HereWhat is so different about this Blog Highlight?  YOU get to vote for your top 5 favourites.  The top ten will then get to take part in an international blog hop with Kylie & other talented successful demonstrators.

What do I do?  All you have to do is click on the “Vote for Me” photo at the side or head on over to Kylie’s Blog, click on the heart in the top right hand side of the picture.

Can I leave comments?  Sure you can.  Once you have voted, click on any picture & comment on those that you really love.  You know how bloggers love to read your comments.

My card was one I had started playing with a couple of weeks ago & has been sitting on my desk in bits & pieces for a couple of weeks now.  Instead of starting from scratch I challenged myself to use what I had started so I sat down & then bang, it hit me.  The Wood-Words---close-upflowers from the “Wood Words” Stamp Set were perfect as they remind me of Thailand.  The colours I didn’t have to change at all as I had gone with Berry Burst & Lemon Lime Twist Inks & Card & I think they are the perfect colours……

I do hope all the Demonstrators who have earned the Thailand Incentive Trip are enjoying themselves as it is such a lovely country.

There is a free tutorial on how I created my card by clicking on the link below.  It gives you all the product used plus the measurements (metric & imperial).

Until next time, Happy Stampin’
