12 Weeks of Christmas – Week 10


G’Day Stampers,

How any of us have our Christmas Cards in the mail?  I’ve managed to post a few this So-Many-Stars-1---Insideweek only because I am a little restricted in what I do for the next 10 days due to eye surgery but happy to say that it is coming along in leaps & bounds.

Week 10 is all about stars, stars & more stars!  We teamed the So Many Stars Bundle with the Brightly Gleaming Specialty DSPfrom the 2019 Holiday Catalogue.

When I first saw the Stitched Stars Dies, the first thing that jumped into my head was an Interlocking Card & I am happy to say we did one in class a couple of weeks ago!  It’s been so long since I’ve created this type of card that I enjoyed the process.

Back on Your Feet

Today’s card is one that was created some time ago but never got to share with you.  It is Back-on-Your-Feet-1ausing the cute little set – “Back on Your Feet“!  I’ve combined it with a Dutch Fold.  I think that is what it is called!  It has been adjusted to suit the Australian size card.

I teamed the stamp set up with the gorgeous Mosaic Mood Speciality DSP which I think sites the image.  The lovely little sloth has been coloured with Watercolour Pencils.

12 Weeks of Christmas – Week 4


G’Day Stampers,

Toda is Week 4 of our 12 Weeks of Christmas & I am happy to say I have a Fancy Fold Winter-Woods-1---InsideCard for you to create over the weekend.  Oh, I also have a new video showing you how I created my card.

To create this card I’ve used the Winter Woods Stamp Set, along with the match In the Woods Dies.  In fact, you could use this set for an occasion!

I’m enjoying creating this fold that much that I’ve managed to create a few special Birthday Cards which I will share with you once they have been received.

This is the video to help you to create your card.

635. Thinking of You this Season – Winter Woods


Wish Big

I saw a card on Pinterest a little time ago & thought it would be ideal for a class.  So last007wm-blog Sunday was the class where we created this wonderful card.  Thank you so much for your inspiration.

I had the DSP & colours out on my desk ready to create & thought they would all go perfectly with the card while at the same time, highlight the fantastic “Garden Blossoms” Bundle from the 2016 Occasions Catalogue.

The card opens into the shape of a box & then folds down flat to fit inside a standard envelope for posting.  On the back is a panel for your greeting.

Until next time, Happy Stampin’

Lotus Blossom

Was again going to be used for our 2nd card last Sunday in our Technique Class, this time with a twist, ie a Tri-Fold Card, but I changed my mind at the last moment & created another card.

If you haven’t created one of these cards before, you need to have a go.  They are a fun little card – 3 1/2″ square in size, but041tc-blog one that packs a WOW!  A small box was created  with the Envelope Punch Board to fit this card.  The Envelope Punch Board makes it so easy to create.

The card uses the Stamp Set –Lotus Blossom” along with the “Best Year Ever” Accessories Pack & matching DSP – Best Year Ever.  All 3 items are from the SAB 2015 Brochure which are FREE products when you spend $AUD90.00 (excluding P&H).  Love, love, love all this gorgeous, bright product.

Until next time, Happy Stampin’

Everything Eleanor….

… was the stamp set we used way back in March for one of our Technique Classes – “Heat & Stick“.

As is the case with our Technique Class, we try & create a card that has a different fold.  Our card for this class was the “Box Card”.  I love how this turned out & surprise, surprise very easy to create.  I did originally see this card from Valita’s Blog.  From memory, I think I sort of adjusted the measurements to suit what I wanted to do.

Some of the products used to create our card have since been retired, but they can easily be replaced with current products.

Supplies –
Stamp Set – Everything Eleanor
Cardstock – Very Vanilla, Early Expresso, Lucky Limeade (Retired)

Cracked Glass…

…was one of the techniques we did back in October.  I decided to do a Christmas Card along with a bit of a different spin on the Step Fold card.

It is another non-traditional Christmas card but the ladies loved it, especially the fold.  The 2nd card we created for this class can be seen in this post.

Until next time, Happy Stampin’

Faux Leather…

…  What a fun technique & one we did a couple of weeks ago in our Technique Class.

Not only did we get to make a big mess with Embossing Powder, but we got to play with the Stampin’ Up! Wheels, which a couple of the ladies had not used previously. 

I did do a similar car to the one here sometime ago, so decided to step it up a bit using new products.  Of course, we had to create it using “girly” colours.  The best part is I think this colour – “Melon Mambo” really showcases the Faux Leather Technique to perfection.

Until next time, Happy Stampin’

SC 044/12…

Crikey, I can’t believe that we are 6 of the big 50!!!!  How time flies when you’re having fun.

Our challenge this week is brought to us by Kris & all it involves is a “Fancy Fold“.

If you google “Fancy Fold“, a whole heap of different instructions & Tutorials will pop up.  The hardest part of this challenge is to decide on what type of “Fancy Fold” you will do. 

I decided to try my hand at the “Free Standing Pop-Up Card”.  This type of card has been around for quiet some time, but will admit it is the first time I have attempted it.  I was really surprised at how easy it is to put together. 

To do all my score lines, I used the new & fantastic Stampin’ Up! “Simply Scoring Tool

Supplies –
Stamp Set – Cottage Garden

Back of Card…

Ink – Melon Mambo, Daffodil Delight, Wild Wasabi
Cardstock – Wild Wasabi, Daffodil Delight, Whisper White
Ribbon – 5/8″ Organza – Whisper White
Punches – Dotted Scallop Ribbon Border
Accessories – Sticky Strip, Snail Adhesive, Pearls, Stampin’ Dimensionals, Craft Knife, 2-Way Glue, Simply Scoring Tool

Prior to scoring the long piece of Whisper White Cardstock, I randomly stamped my images using inks of Melon Mambo, Wild Wasabi & Daffodil Delight.

For the part that pops up, I stamped 2 pieces of Whisper White Cardstock with Melon Mambo, Wild Wasabi & Daffodil Inks.  One piece is for the front which you see when it pops up, while the other piece is for the back to wirte my message.

Front of card…

The flowers for the front were stamped onto scrap piece of Whisper White Cardstock with Melon Mambo Ink, cut out & addplied to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I applied a Pearl in the middle of each flower with 2-Way Glue.

I punched 2 strips of Daffodil Delight Cardstock using the Dotted Scallop Ribbon Border Punch.  I have had this punch for sometime, but never used it.  I think I will be using it heaps more now, as it is such a beautiful punch.  When adhering these strips to the Whisper White Cardstock, I ensured that the punched pieces were on opposite sides.  Both pieces were then adhered to a piece of Wild Wasabi Cardstock with Snail Adhesive.

To complete the card, I wrapped a piece of Organza Ribbon around the body & tied bow just off centre.

Need more inspiration?  Pop on over to check out what Gwen, Kris & Leonie have created for their Fancy Folds.

This card is also for my group’s challenge, where we had have to use the colours of Daffodil Delight, Melon Mambo & Wild Wasabi.  We could create a card, scrapbook page, project or any other item as long as we used the above colours.

Until next time, Happy Stampin’
