Thank You

G’day Stampers,

Today’s cards are the ones I created for my “Thank You” cards for my customers for July.  I love these simple, easy little cards.  All created in  the 005a2014-2015 In Colours of Baked Brown Sugar, Pistachio Pudding, Strawberry Slush, Coastal Cabana & Crisp Cantaloupe plus Whisper White.

I originally saw a card using the “Beautiful Wings” Embosslits on Pinterest & for some reason it stuff in my head.  I am not sure if I saved I to create at a later stage, but if you click on the link, it will take you to the one I got my inspiration from.  Thank you so much for sharing your lovely card.

SC 086/13…

Our challenge over at Sunny Challenges & Creations has been set by me.  Again, she has been very kind to us by only stating that we have to create a ” Shaped Card“.

My card this week is what is called a “Twisted Card“.  This have been around for some time, but had only sort of ever created half ones & never completed any. 

If you “Google” “Twisted Card“, all sorts of ideas will come up, including tutorials.  I didn’t take any tutorial to create mine, but preferring to do it my way.  I turned mine into a Gift Card Holder & added a piece for the writing on the left hand side.

Over the next week, I hope to have a tutorial for the card, but in the meantime, will give you my supplies for what I used.

I’ve decided to enter the card into the challenge over at LNS (Latenight Stampers) to which I belong to.  Their challenge this week is to use “Speciality Paper” on your card.  It isn’t really a “Speciality Paper“, eg Vellum, but seeing as though I hadn’t completed a challenge there in awhile, it would be fun just to enter. 

Supplies –
Stamp Set – Flower Shop, Itty Bitty Banners
Ink – Basic Black, Bermuda Bay
Cardstock – Basic Black, Very Vanilla
DSP – Modern Medley
Punches – Pansy Flower
Framelits – Bitty Banners
Accessories – Snail Adhesive, Stampin’ Dimensionals, Large Pearls, Tea Lace Paper Doily, Sponge


Be sure to check out what the other Design Team Members & our very talented Guest Designers have created by heading over to Sunny Challenges & Creations.  Create your “Shaped Card”, post to your online group, blog, facebook or forum & link back to Mr Linky.

Until next time, Happy Stampin’!

By the Tide 2….

Today’s card is our 2nd card we created using the stamp set “By the Tide” from the current Seasonal Catalogue.  Not only did we use this stamp set, but we used the Technique “Ghosting/VersaMark Resist” & the Ovals Collections.

In my classes I like to showcase different cards using the same stamp sets & supplies, eg Cardstock, Inks, etc.  I am a firm believer that you do not have to have a lot of cards to achieve great results.

When I first saw the Ovals Collections in the Seasonal Catalogue an idea sprung into my head.  Then when I flipped over to see this great stamp set “By the Tide”, I got more excited, as I could combine the 2…….

The Open Sea…..

… was the Stamp Set we used in one of our Technique Classes a few weeks ago.  I am so far behind in my posts that I think I will have something every couple of days for the next 2 weeks, so be sure to pop back to check them out.

With this class we concentrated on doing the Wax Paper or Faux Parchment Technique.  This turned out to be the perfect technique for creating male cards.  We got to use lots of different techniques with this card, including – Crimper, Sponging, Big Shot plus a different type of fold, which is what this card turned out to be – Twisted Easel.  They are such fun to create. 

Until next time, Happy Stampin’
