I am still not back to posting properly but fingers crossed that we will be back on track next week.
Today’s post are just some of the tickets I created for a Mad Hatter’s Tea Party which is happening next weekend. This event has been months in planning but I think we are just about there.
I’ve used the “Have a Cuppa” DSP Pack from the 2016 Occasions Catalogue. The paper was perfect for this event & seeing as though I had heaps left over including a full pack, it worked in perfectly.
As we are using bright greens, purples, oranges, yellows, pinks with black & white thrown in & nothing matching, I thought it would be a good idea to start the event off with having all different tickets. The ladies loved them, especially when they realised that they all had a different ticket.
We’ve kept the rest of the stationery & decorations a well guarded secret, but wil share with you the remainder of everything once the event is over.
My card today is one I created for a special friend who did a couple of things for me. I was very much taken back by her kindness so thought a nice card would show my appreciation.
I don’t have a tutorial for you today, but will try & remember how I did the card from the photo – the original has long gone in the post.
I’ve used the “Cups & Kettles” Framelits Dies (retired) for my card. I cut a piece of the “Have a Cuppa” DSP (retired) & adhered it to the bottom part of a piece of Whisper White Card. The “Pleated Skirt” has been created from the same DSP Stack. It was then adhered to the top of the DSP before layering a piece of Bermuda Bay Stitched Ribbon above the skirt & again across the top of the skirt.
The Teapot was cut from Melon Mambo Card using the Framelit Dies & adhered onto the Card Front. The lid was adhered above the Teapot with Stampin’ Dimensionals. The Heart has been cut from Melon Mambo Card & adhered to the Card. The wavy lines were cut from scraps of Whisper White Card & adhered across the Teapot.
I stamped the Sentiment from “A Nice Cuppa” Stamp Set (retired), direct onto the Card Front in Memento Tuxedo Black Ink. The Card Front was then layered to the Base Card – Whisper White.
I am in the process of creating a small package for a High Tea Cent Sale & thought I would share with you one of the cards that I’ve created using the “A Nice Cuppa” Stamp Set along with the matching “Have a Cuppa” DSP & of course the “Cups & Kettle” Framelits, al of which are now retired, but it has been great using them for this special event.
To be honest, I had created the beginning of this card when the items were current but it had gone into my unfinished pile. All I had to do was add the elements at the top of the card. Don’t ask me why I hadn’t done it previously as it took me all of about 15m to complete the card.
I actually did another one similar to this one which you will be able to find here, including a Tutorial. For the Cup I’ve used Melon Mambo Card, Lemons have been stamped in Daffodil Delight Ink onto Whisper White Card & then fussy cut. The Tea Bag was stamped onto Whisper White Card in Bermuda Bay Ink, while the Spoon was cut from Basic Grey Card. Looking at my Lemons I should have stamped them onto Daffodil Delight Card in Whisper White Ink but that is ok with me.
“Happy Birthday” is from “Thoughtful Banners” Stamp Set & was stamped onto Whisper White Card in Basic Grey Ink, while the Frame was stamped in Bermuda Bay Ink & punched with the Classic Label Punch.
Remember this is a great way to use some of that DSP you have stashed in your cupboards. To create more cards using DSP, why not head on over to thePretty Pattern Papers Page to view, purchase & create more cards.
I was playing around the other day creating cards for Crafty Creations & come up with my card I’m sharing with you today. It was originally intended to be a Valentine’s Day, but looking at it, you could use it for any occasion even an Engagement, Wedding or Anniversary!
I’ve used a couple of pieces of DSP from the “Have A Cuppa” Pack which is from the 2016 Occasions Catalogue. I wanted to use it in a different way.
I layered a piece of DSP to a piece of Melon Mambo Card prior to running through the Big Shot with Bold Butterfly Thinlits. A small border of Melon Mambo is showing all around the DSP.
I cut the word “Love” from the Expressions Thinlit (Retired) in Melon Mambo by running it through the Big Shot. I placed the Love Thinlit (retired) over the top of the Butterfly Shape & again run it through the Big Shot. When cutting it, be very careful to keep any small pieces that you may need to place back onto the card.
I then layered a piece of Window Sheet behind the cut out Butterfly & with the Fine-Tip Glue Pen, adhered the Love back into place including any cut pieces of the DSP. The whole piece was popped up with Stampin’ Dimensionals, layered onto another piece of DSP from the same Pack & layered to the Base Card – Basic Grey.
I cut XOXO from Crushed Curry Card using the Circle Card Thinlits which was adhered to a Heart Shape cut from the same set before adhering to the Card Front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
I do hope you like my card using Dies & Thinlits a little bit of a different way.
This card could easily be turned into a Shaper Card too. All you have to do is place Stampin’ Dimensionals around the outline of the Butterfly.
I’ve just realised we’ve done no stamping on our card!
I thought I would start showing you a couple of sneak previews over the new couple of days. You are going to be astounded at the gorgeous new product available in the new 2016 Occasions Catalogue, not forgetting the SAB 2016 too.
Today’s card is one I’ve case’d (Copy & Share Everything) from the “Stampin’ Success” Magazine that Demos worldwide receive. It is always full of helpful little tips & great samples.
To make it my own, I’ve added a couple of extra pieces of Card, eg Bermuda Bay & a Base Card of Whisper White.
