Eclectic Layers

I have finally had a play with the Eclectic Layers Thinlits and the Oh So Eclectic stamp set. 




I have used a piece of Wood Textures Designer Series Paper behind the Whisper White cardstock piece.  The flowers have been stamped with Cajun Craze and the leaves with Old Olive.  A Copper Trim bow was added to finish along with some Copper sequins from the Metallics Sequin Assortment.

To make this card you need to the following pieces:

Measurements

A4 Thick Whisper White cardstock cut in half lenthways to create the card base
A piece of Whisper White cardstock 8cm x 14.8cm
A piece of Wood Textures DSP 10.5cm x 14.8cm
Scraps of Whisper White cardstock to stamp the flowers and leaves

Technique

Fold card base.

Adhere the piece of Wood Textures DSP to the card base.


Stamp 2 large flowers (one for the inside) and 3 small flowers (one for the inside). This is a 2 step stamping process, no need to stamp off as the stamps have a watercolour effect to them.

Stamp 3 sets of leaves (one for the inside). Cut out the stamped images using the matching Eclectic Layers Thinlits.

Using the diamond decorative die cut out the diamond decorative centre on the piece of 8cm x 14.8cm Whisper White cardstock.   Stamp the sentiment using Old Olive on the top right corner. I have used the Rose Wonder stamp set for the Thank You sentiment.  You can use any sentiment that you wish.  Adhere this panel to the card front on top of the Wood Textures DSP.

Arrange the flowers and leaves on the card front and adhere in place.  Add the Copper Trim bow and the Copper sequins to finish the card front.

For the inside arrange a small floral arrangement in the bottom right corner and adhere in place.


I had a 4.9cm x 14.8cm piece of the Wood Texture DPS left over from the 1st card, so using the same card sketch, some texture paste I created a second card.  This way I did not have any small strips of DSP laying around. The measurements for this card are the same as the 1st card.

The stamp sets used are Label Me Pretty and Oh So Eclectic along with the Label Punch and the Eclectic Layers Thinlits.

Eastern Beauty

Have you ever had the problem when you wanted to use a special piece of paper in your design but no other paper or card stock seemed to work with it?  I recently had this dilemma when I wanted to use the Soft Sky striped pattern from the Foil Frenzy Specialty Designer Series Paper.  So what did I do to solve my problem, I stamped my own background patterned paper using an image from the Eastern Beauty stamp set and Soft Sky ink.



To make this card you need to the following pieces:

Measurements

A4 Soft Sky cardstock cut in half to create card base
Whisper White cardstock 14.3cm x 10cm (for the inside)
Whisper White cardstock 14.4cm x 10.1cm
Copper Foil Sheet 14.1cm x 9.8cm
Whisper White cardstock 13.8cm x 9.5cm (for stamping)
Foil Frenzy DSP 10.1cm x 5cm
Scraps of Whisper White and Soft Sky for the sentiment circle

Technique

Fold card base.

Stamp the 13.8cm x 9.5cm piece of cardstock using Soft Sky ink and the image from the Eastern Beauty Stamp Set.

Cut out the Medallion from the middle of the Copper Foil Sheet.  The remainder of the Copper Foil Sheet is the mat behind the stamped Whisper White cardstock piece.

Adhere all the layers together and then add the Soft Sky ribbon before adhering to the card front.

Stamp the sentiment onto a piece of Whisper White cardstock and cut out using the Circle Stitched Shape framelit.  Cut out a scalloped circle using the Layering Circle Framelits.  Layer together and then adhere to the Copper Foil Medallion using dimensionals.  Adhere the Copper Foil Medallion to the card front using dimensionals

For the inside of the card stamp the bottom right corner with the image used on the card front and the Soft Sky ink.

Daisy Delight Treat Box

I love it when you have a matching punch and stamp set that go perfectly with the designer series paper.  I have used products from the Delightful Daisy Suite on page 127 of the Annual Catalogue for this gorgeous little Daisy Delight Treat Box.  I did sneak the sentiment in from the Wood Words stamp set.


I adapted the treat box tutorial on Splitcoaststampers to make the box from a piece of A4 cardstock and so that it was more compact. This size suites the 7.6 x 15.2cm Gusseted Cellophane Bags filled with treats and tied with a piece of Daffodil Delight Stitched Ribbon.


To make this treat box you will need the following:

A piece of Night of Navy card stock 8 1/2" x 8"
A piece of Daisy Patterned Paper 2" x 7 1/2"
A piece of Striped Patterned Paper 3 1/4" x 3 3/4"

Score the Night of Navy card stock on the 8" side at 1/4", 2 1/4",
5 3/4" and 7 3/4".  Score on the 8 12" side at 2 1/2" and 4 1/2".

Follow the template below for the cutting lines etc.  There is a tutorial at Splitcoaststampers here that shows how to put the box together and where to adhere the patterned paper.


Stamp the Daisy image twice using Daffodil Delight ink, punch out using the Daisy punch and layer together to form the flower.  Add a Gold Faceted Gem for the flower centre. 

Stamp the sentiment using Night of Navy ink and cut out using the small oval in the Stitched Shapes Framelits and layer onto a Daffodil Delight scalloped oval made using the Layering Ovals Framelits.  Adhere this to the box front using dimensionals.

Amazing You

I cased myself for project No. 8 for the JDRF fundraiser.  I have used the Grown with Love stamp set and the matching Garden Grown Framelits.




This stamp set is one where you colour the image with Stampin' Write Markers before stamping.  This gives you the pretty finished flower image.  I have used a colour scheme of Fresh Fig, Berry Burst, Old Olive, Alway Artichoke, Crumb Cake, Basic Black and Whisper White.  Once the floral image has been stamped, stamp the images again to cut out the raised flowers using the matching Garden Grown Framelits (the small flower is hand cut).  Stamp the flower pot in Crumb Cake and cut out using the matching die.  All the pieces cut out using the dies are layered onto the card using dimensionals. 

The patterned paper is from the Wood Textures Designer Series Paper Stack.

The measurements to make the card are:
  • Fresh Fig Card base - A4 cut in half then folded in half
  • Crumb Cake mat - 13.8cm x 9.5cm
  • DSP - 13.5cm x 9.2cm
  • Crumb Cake - 13.8cm x 3cm
  • Fresh Fig - 13.8cm x 2.8cm
  • Fresh Fig - 10.8cm x 7cm
  • Crumb Cake - 10.3cm x 6.5cm
  • Whisper White - 10cm x 6.2cm

Vintage Gift Bag

For project No. 7 I cased the Annual Catalogue on page 143 and made this gorgeous vintage style gift bag.  To create the floral display the Falling Flowers stamp set and matching May Flowers Framelits was used.


To make the base bag use a piece of thick Very Vanilla cardstock cut to the 11" length.  I left the width of the bag at the width of the A4 cardstock.  This was punched and scored using the Gift Bag Punch Board and the instructions for the medium bag size.  Tip - the instructions and sizes are detailed on the Gift Bag Punch Board.

Note - All the edges of the pieces have been inked with Crumb Cake.

Before putting the bag together, the flourish image was stamped using Soft Suede ink and the small leaf stamped with Early Espresso.  The background was then sponged using Crumb Cake ink and the Pattern Party Decorative Masks.  You can also spritz this with a mix of Isocol Alchol and Crumb Cake reinker.

Stamp and colour the floral images and cut out the pieces using the May Flowers Framelits.  Also cut out a Very Vanilla large open flower piece as the base for the floral arrangement.  A 20cm piece of Copper Trim was teased apart and adhered on top of the large open flower before the final floral arrangement was adhered in place.

The closure for the bag is created using the word 'Celebrate' from the Tabs for Everything stamp set punched out using the Classic Label Punch.  This was adhered onto a corrugated oval from the Corrugated Elements and then adhered to the Gold Binder Clip with a couple of Glue Dot.  A Linen Thread bow was added to finish the closure.
