Post-It Notes

A part of the small gift I posted off to Kathy (new Downline), were Post-It Notes which I thought would be very handy for her.

Again, I’ve used the lovely “Falling in Love” DSP but teamed it up with a piece of Sweet Sugarplum which was embossed with the “Falling Petals” EF & is part of the “Falling in Love” Suite, Page 51.  The base of the Holder is Soft Sky.

I also punched a Butterfly from the Blushing Bride Glimmer Paper with the Bitty Butterfly Punch.

2017 Calendar

I thought I would share with you something a little different today.20160809_134304_resizedblog

I am getting ready for a Christmas Fair which will be held in December.  I am excited about this as I’ve never done one since moving here but have been told it is well attended by the community.

I created a sheet of small calendars on my pc before cutting them down to the size I wanted.  They actually measure 7cm x 7cm.

I adhered a piece of “Have a Cuppa” DSP Stack (Retired) to a piece of Whisper White before adhering to a Bermuda Bay Base.

The Calendar was layered onto a piece of Melon Mambo & then onto the DSP.

For the inside, I adhered a piece from the same Stack onto a piece of Melon Mambo & then to the Base – Bermuda Bay.

Until next time, Happy Stampin’










Post It Notes

I created Post-It Notes for my last Christmas Market, which surprised me as they proved to be popular.  You can never tell month to month, so I only do a few to showcase & then take orders.

I wanted to try & create them like a card instead of just using DSP for the backgrounds.

I don’t have photos of all the ones I created but did take a photo of a couple.  Along with the photo of each one, I’ve listed what I used – that I can remember!

Post-It Notes #1014bb-blog

I stamped the “Swallowtail” image onto Whisper White CS with Chocolate Chip Ink.  The image was stamped so that once the Post-It Notes were adhered to the Frame, it would not be covered up.  I then randomly coloured the image with a Blender Pen, Pink Pirouette, Pear Pizzazz & Calypso Coral Markers.

A piece of Crochet Trim (Retired) was adhered to the top part of the card, ends tucked under.  I didn’t adhere the Trim across the Card as I wanted the trim to be tied on the top of the Frame.

The whole piece was then adhered to a piece of Pink Pirouette CS prior to sliding inside the Frame.  The Post-It Notes were adhered to the top, a knot tied at the top with the Crochet Trim & a small Biro attached to the top of the Notes.

I randomly tamped a piece of Very Vanilla CS in Crumb Cake Ink using the large Rose from the “Stippled Blossom” Stamp Set.  I again stamped 2 images onto scrap Whisper White CS in Crumb Cake & Early Espresso Inks prior to cutting out the images & adhering to the stamped Very Vanilla CS.  Leaves were punched from Early Espresso CS with the Bird Builder Punch prior to adhering to the card.

The piece was then layered onto Early Espresso CS.

A piece of retired Early Espresso Ribbon was adhered across the frame & a bow tied to the side.  The Post-It Notes were adhered to the frame front along with a matching Biro – not seen in photo.

Post-It Notes #3

Leaves from “Kinda Eclectic” Stamp Set were randomly stamped onto a piece of Very Vanilla CS with Pear Pizzazz Ink and the splash image from the “Gorgeous Grunge” Stamp Set in Calypso Coral Ink.  This piece was layered onto a piece of Calypso Coral CS.

A small butterfly from the same set was stamped in Calypso Coral & punched with the corresponding “Bitty Punch” prior to adhering to the card, Pearls adhered to the centre prior to inserting into the Frame.

Post-It Notes were adhered to the front of Frame along with a small Biro.
