Note Cards

G’day Stampers,

Today I thought I would share with you a couple of Note Cards I have created for my customers.  I am trying something a little different this year, so fingers crossed it works.  I will fill you in only IF it works!!!!!!

For my cards, I stamped the ladies from “Beautiful You” Stamp Set (available from the 2017 Occasions Catalogue) onto a piece of Whisper White CS using Memento Tuxedo Black Ink.  I coloured them in using the lovely new Watercolour Pencils & Blender Pen.  Love my Blender Pen!

The Whisper White Cards were then layered onto a piece of Melon Mambo or Pacific Point CS which highlights the colours.

Only a short post today as I am still recovering, so fingers crossed things will be back to normal in a couple of days.

Until next time, Happy Stampin’



5 Min Gift Card

Today’s post is a quick 5 minute Gift Card I created a couple of weeks ago for someone who placed an order with me.  This card went in with their order.

I actually had “Garden in Bloom” sitting on my desk along with the ink colours from another project, so .  I stamped the flower outline image in Melon Mambo & then filled it with the same colour but stamping off once or twice to get the lighter colour.  The middle was stamped in Daffodil Delight Ink, while the stem is Wild Wasabi.

I cut the “Thx” from Melon Mambo CS using the Die from Circle Card Thinlits.

I really like the size of this card, so will be doing more of them in the future.

Until next time Happy Stampin’



Gift Card Holder

“Look Mum, no stamping!”

I finally used the Mini Treat Bag Thinlits & must say “love, love, love it!”  So easy to create cards, Boxes, etc.  My head is swimming with ideas.

I actually used some of the new Bohemian DSP, along with the matching Washi Tape (from my pre-order), along with some of the accessories included in the Thinlits.  I’m not a Brights’ person, but hey it is good to get out of your comfort zone every now & then.  In fact, I actually enjoyed playing with these colours.

As I mentioned, no stamping on this one.  I actually didn’t realise it until I went to take a photo.  Amazing how much we get to rely on out stamps?

003bbwm-blogTo create my holder I cut a piece of Very Vanilla using the Thinlits & then recut a piece of DSP for the front & adhered it to the front ensuring the top edges matched.

For the Belly Band, I cut a piece of Bermuda Bay, adhered a piece of DSP to the centre & wrapped it around the card.  This Band can slip on & off very easy, although you could just adhere a piece to the front.

For the centre piece adhered to the Band, I punched a piece of Very Vanilla with the 1 3/4″ Circle Punch & adhered it to the Bermuda Bay Scallop Circle.  To create this scallop Circle, I punched a couple of pieces of Bermuda Bay Card with the 1 3/4″ Scallop Circle Punch, cut it into pieces & adhered the pieces around the Very Vanilla Card prior to adhering to the Belly Band with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

For the card itself, I adhered a piece of Bermuda Bay Ribbon (Retired) to the back of a piece of Very Vanilla Card.  I cut another piece of Very Vanilla Card, adhered 2 x strips of Washi Tape prior to adhering to the bottom of the larger piece before layering onto a piece of Rich Razzleberry.  “For You” is from the set & I cut it using Rich Razzleberry & running through the Big Shot.

To finish it off, I adhered a Bermuda Bay Candy Dot to the top so that it looked like a brad.

I then decided it needed just a little something, so I cut a piece of Rich Razzleberry Card, along with the “Enjoy” & run it through the Big Shot before adhering it to the Pocket.

Because the size is not Australian Standard, I created an envelope with the Envelope Punch Board.

I hope you like today’s project.

Until next time, Happy Stampin’
