Thank You

I’m not sure but some of you may recognise this card.  I have cased it from the current catalogue, page 67.  It has been changed a little, including the stamp set, but I’m happy with it.

The card has been used for my “Thank You” cards for August.  I loved the soft colours used in the card.  I’ve used one of my 010a---blogfavourite stamp sets – Kina Eclectic.  Are you sick of it yet?  I’ve also used a piece of the beautiful Venetian Crochet Trim.  If you haven’t purchased it, I would say do it, as it is simply gorgeous.

As with all my “Thank You” cards, I’ve created them in C6 size (Australian size).  I love this size for this purpose!

I found a lovely little card on Pinterest with the colours of Pistachio Pudding & Smokey Slate. I have spent a 20140715_143507acouple of hours trying to find it but do apologise for not being able to give you credit. I have put my own spin on it & well, looking at the card now, it doesn’t resemble the one I took my inspiration from.  Strange how that can happen hey.

I love this stamp set & am so very glad it didn’t retire. I ended up posting this to a good friend of mine the other day who is having a bit of a hard time. I just thought it would be very different to flowers, etc.  I only hope she likes it!

20140715_143545aIt would make for a very good male card too by just changing out the colours.

For the inside of the card, I stamped the images direct onto a piece of Very Vanilla CS using Crisp Cantaloupe, Pistachio Pudding & Smokey Slate Inks, prior to attaching with Multipurpose Glue.

Swallowtail…

In one of Technique Classes last month, we used the great stamp set “Swallowtail” & applied it to the technique – “Split Negative“.

I was really happy with the way this card turned out, as it is a little different to what I’ve seen using this technique.  I wanted to try a couple of non-traditional colours instead of the black & white that is usually the ones used for this technique.

Today’s card is one with a bit of a surprise inside.

SC 085/13…

I am a little late in posting my card for our challenge over at Sunny Challenges & Creations was given to us by Kris.  We have the Sketch only!

Not only am I late in posting, but unfortunately I don’t even have any measurements for you as I sold the card at the Handmade Expo last Sunday.  I didn’t realise it had been sold until I just went looking for it…..  Always the way.

I will try & remember what I used on it from the photo & memory.  I originally found a lovely card created using this Origami Dress.  I then traced it back to the Website.  Me being me, I did alter the measurements to suit the card.  Laura is one talented stamper.  Click on the word “Laura” & it will take you direct to the video.

Lately I seem to be creating a lot of cards with Early Expresso & the Regal Colour Family.  Since Stampin’ Up! revamped their colours, I am loving the Regals AND I am not a Regal Lover.

Supplies –
Stamp Set – Express Yourself
Ink – Rose Red
Cardstock – Early Expresso, Whisper White, Rose Red
DSP – Designer Series Paper Stack – Regals
Punches – Scallop Oval, 1 3/4″ Circle, Modern Label, Word Window
Embossing Folder – Perfect Polka Dots
Accessories – Stampin’ Dimensionals, Snail Adhesive, Gel Pen – White, Tea Lace Paper Dollies

Card & Envelope

Thank You….

… to my lovely customers. 

This is one of the Thank You Cards created for my customers this month.  I’ve used the gorgeous new “In Colours” to create the cards.  Mind you, they are all in different colours, but will show the remainder in the next couple of days.

I am really loving the new colours as they are right up my alley, ie being subtle & not too bright.  

The cards this month are a little smaller than the standard size, in that they are down a size & I am loving this size for small Thank You Cards.  No extra for postage either!

When I added the Ribbon, I hadn’t realised it had retired, so you are able to replace the ribbon with a current one.  The secret is out – Yep, I haven’t gone through my “stuff” as yet & sorted out the retired products.  That will have to be done today, so I don’t do it again!

Measurements –
Base Card – Soft Suede – 5 1/2″ x 7″ or 14cm x 18cm
Layer 1 – Crisp Cantaloupe – 5 3/8″ x 3 3/8″ or 13.5cm x 8.5cm
Layer 2 – Very Vanilla – 5 1/4″ x 3 1/4″ or 13cm x 8cm

Supplies –
Stamp Set – Field Flowers – 122762, Express Yourself – (Hostess)
Ink – Baked Brown Sugar – 131174, Crisp Cantaloupe – 131176, Pistachio Pudding – 131177
Cardstock – Soft Suede – 119982, Crisp Cantaloupe – 131303, Very Vanilla – 106550
Edgelits – Adorning Accents – 125595
Embossing Folder – Adorning Accents – 125601
Ribbon – 1/8″ Taffeta Ribbon – Very Vanilla (Retired)
Accessories – Big Shot – 113439, Snail Adhesive – 104332, Multipurpose Liquid Glue – 110755

Tutorial –
1.  Stamp random images onto Very Vanilla Cardstock using Pistachio Pudding Ink for the leaves & Crisp Cantaloupe for the flowers
2.  Stamp sentiment/greeting in Baked Brown Sugar Ink
3.  Place Edgelit along bottom of the longer piece of Crisp Cantaloupe Cardstock & run through Big Shot
4.  Line Embossing Folder with shaped edge from Edglit & run through Big Shot
5.  Adhere Very Vanilla to top part of Crisp Cantaloupe prior to adhering Ribbon along edge where 2 pieces meet.  Tie bow
6.  Adhere to Base Card – Soft Suede

How easy to create a lovely Thank You.  Don’t you love the names of the new “In Colours“?

Feel Better Soon…

I found out that one of my ladies & friend who comes to our Technique Class spent some of the school holidays in hospital.  I created this one especially for her. 

In fact I’ve add the “Swallowtail” Stamp sitting on the shelf for some time, but just couldn’t get an idea in my head to use it.  I have seen some lovely work using this stamp, but I don’t usually use a stamp until an idea pops into my head. 

Determined to use the stamp & not really knowing what I was going to do, I grabbed the stamp, a couple of colours & played.  I’m happy with the result.  It is a very simple, easy card, but effective at the same time.

Thanks Bronwen for getting me to use this lovely stamp & hope you are feeling much, much better.
