Happy Birthday Wishes

This card was created for a friend of mine for her birthday early last month.  Yep, I’ve just gotten round to posting it.  Where does the time go?

I did see the card on Pinterst & thought I would have a go.  Thank you so much for your inspiration.

I run a piece of Whisper White through the BS using Decorative Dots EF.  This was he adhered to a piece of Soft Sky Card & finally to the Base Card – Whisper White.003---blog

The vase was created by using a Framelit from the Ovals Collection & then embossing with the Beautifully Baroque EF prior to adhering to Base Card.

I stamped 3 x large flowers from Flower Shop & 3 x small flowers from Petite Petals in Pink Pirouette, punched with the corresponding Pansy & Petite Petals Punches.  The smaller flowers were adhered to the centre of the larger flowers with Stampin’ Dimensionals prior to adhering to card with Stampin’ Dimensionals & placing Pearl Basic Jewel to the centre of each flower.

The leaves were punched using the Bird Builder Punch from Wild Wasabi Card & randomly adhered to the card.

Happy Birthday Wishes” from Petite Pairs, was stamped straight onto Wisher White Card in Melon Mambo Ink, punched out with the Extra-Large Oval Punch prior to adhering to card with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I do apologise for not having any measurements or instructions for today’s card, but the list of supplies I used may be found below.

Until next time, Happy Stampin’

Our current challenge over at Sunny Challenges & Creations is to create something using the fantastic “Framelits” from Stampin’ Up!

I decided to create a Christmas Card for this challenge.  I am in the process of creating these cards for my next market coming up first Sunday in November, so this was the perfect opportunity for me.

Truth be told, I didn’t really know where I was going with this card, but knew that I wanted to use the “Ornament Keepsakes” with the dotty DSP from “Season of Style” which is in the current “Holiday Catalogue“.  Of course I had to used my favourite EF – Perfect Polka Dots!

    Sending Sympathy….

    Our card today is a Triple Layer Card we created in Crafty Creations at the Caloundra Community Centre this afternoon.   The ladies loved it, although we did have a few accidents – ink accidents, ie….

    Not only could your imagination go wild thinking of different placements for the front, but they are an easy card to create as well as having a every effective card at the end.

    I don’t usually create bright cards, but tend to use the Neutral & Subtle Colour Families.  When doing classes I like to think “outside the square“, so to speak which means I tend to take into account what each person likes including colours & styles. It would be a very boring world if we liked all the same, wouldn’t it?

    Supplies used to create this card –
    Stamp Set  –  Stippled Blossoms (C) – 126747, Petite Pairs(C) – 122497
    Ink  –  Pink Pirouette – 126956, Primrose Petals – 126858, Old Olive – 126953, Wild Wasabi – 126959
    Cardstock  –  Whisper White – 106549, Old Olive – 106576
    Punches  –  Large Oval – 119855
    Ribbon  –  3/8″ Stitched – Primrose Petals – 126844
    Accessories  –  Big Shot – 113439, Snail Adhesive – 104332, Stampin’ Dimensionals – 104430, Glue Dots – 103683

    Birthday Wishes….

    I’ve been a huge fan of Silke Leglow way before I started Stampin’ Up!  I love her clean crisp cards.

    Today’s post is one of the cards we did in a class way back in May but of course I changed it to suit Stampin’ Up! products.  Thank you so much Silke for your inspiration!

    It was my turn to create the challenge this week over at Sunny Challenges & Creations & thought seeing as though it is now July – a Christmas Challenge would be in order.  Along with the sketch, we had to create a card, 3-D item or scrapbook page.

    I don’t know if you have noticed in the new catalogue that there are NO Christmas/Holiday Stamp Sets or Accessories, BUT there is the Carry Over List from the Autumn/Winter Catalogue.  In saying that, there is no reason as to why you could not use a retired Stamp Set to create your card or even a non-traditional stamp set!!!! You may surprise yourself with what you can come up with!

    For those that know me, I tend to steer away from traditional Christmas Colours & like to go more with non-traditional colours, as in today’s card – Very Vanilla, Soft Suede & Pink Pirouette.  I love these colours together & not just for Christmas.  Of course, how could I not create a card without using my favourite Embossing Folder – Perfect Polka Dots!

    Supplies –
    Stamp Set Ornament Keepsakes – 128051, Petite Pairs – 122497
    Ink  Pink Pirouette – 126956
    Cardstock  Very Vanilla – 106550, Soft Suede – 119982
    Framelits  Holiday Ornaments – 127816
    Punches  Large Oval – 119855, Scallop Oval – 119856
    Embossing Folder – Perfect Polka Dots – 117335
    Accessories  Big Shot – 113439, Snail Adhesives – 104332, Multipurpose Liquid Glue – 110755, Stampin’ Dimensionals – 104430, Rhinestone Basic Jewels – 119246, Stampin’ Write Marker – Neutrals – Soft Suede – 131261

    Last Day…

    … to order from the Retiring List

    To celebrate the current Stampin’ Up! Catalogue, I thought I would share with you the box of cards I created again using Retiring Products.  The idea come about after creating my card for the current Sunny Challenges challenge, which still has one more week to run, so it is not too late to link your creation with Mr Linky.

    If you remember I created a box of 3 x 3 Gift Cards using Nature Walk & the Regal Inks which are retiring, a couple of days ago, so this time I thought I do would a similar sort of thing using the retiring Subtles Colours.

    I created 4 cards – 2 x Regal Rose & 2 x Pretty in Pink.  All cards have a different greeting/sentiment on them. The box has touches of Pretty in Pink.  The word “Cards” on the box was created in MDS & printed in Certainly Celery.

    Regal Rose & Pretty in Pink

     
    Until next time, Happy Stampin!

    Our challenge over at Sunny Challenges is to create a project using the sketch as well as retiring Stampin’ Up! product.  To play along, all you have to do is check out that long Retiring List.

    As the sketch is wide open, I thought I would try something a little different with my card this week.  In fact I enjoyed this fun technique that it is going to be included in our Technique Class next month.

    I remember seeing a card which was using a tile technique on Pinterest, but as usual didn’t take much notice or didn’t save it, thinking I would not be using it, but it did stick in my mind.  Thank you so much for your inspiration.

    After playing around for a little time, I eventually come up with something that I was happy with.

    Not only did I do this for the challenge, but I also created a couple to post off to a couple of customers this month – different colours of course, but will show you them at a later stage.

    Retiring Products I’ve used included –
    Stamp Set – Nature Walk
    Cardstock – Baja Breeze
    Ink – Baja Breeze
    SU! Write Markers – Baja Breeze, Certainly Celery

    I am really going to miss the Stamp Set – Nature Walk, but no doubt SU! will have something better.

    Baja Breeze
     
    Bashful Blue
     
    Don’t forget to pop on over to Sunny Challenges & check out what both Kris & Carole have created using the sketch & retiring products.
     
    You have 2 weeks to create your project.  We love seeing your work & leaving comments, so be sure to link it back with Mr Linky.
     
    Until next time, Happy Stampin’

    Pleated Skirts….

    I am so far behind in my posts that I think I have enough cards to post for the next couple of months without adding any extras I’ve created in between posts.  Where does the time go????

    Our card today is one we created sometime ago in Crafty Creations.  As most of the ladies have either a Big Shot or Cuttlebug, once a month, we concentrate on these products.  It is usually a great way for them to learn how to use their tools.  Included in this class we also concentrated on the Technique – Chalks or Pastels, including learning how to create a pleated skirt from paper.

    I let the ladies know what we will be creating each week & what to bring along if they want.  This way, they are using the “stuff” they may have & familiarising themselves with their own “stuff“.  I took along a number of different Embossing Folders for the ladies who don’t have a machine or Folders.

    I think this is another card I saw on Pinterest, but am not that sure.  Please let me know if you recognise it, as I would love to give you credit for the inspiration.
