Stash Busting Saturday - Dandy Designs 12" x 12" Designer Series Paper

Hi everyone, for this week's 'Stash Buster' I have chosen the Dandy Designs 12" x 12" Designer Series Paper pack.


I used the Create with Connie & Mary Sketch CCMC793 for the design of my cards.  I love this sketch as you can use small left over pieces or cut a 6" x 6" piece of patterned paper into 1 1/2" x 1 1/2" squares and make four cards with no scraps.  The Basic White mats are 1 5/8" x 1 5/8".

I elected to use a 6" x 6" piece of patterned paper that coordinated on both sides and made 4 cards, by flipping 8 of the pieces over to the other side so I got the different pattern.  Alternatively you can use 2 pieces of coordinating 6" x 6" patterned paper, this will make 8 cards in total.


I used the Hearts & Hugs stamp set and dies to create my cards.  This bundle is a favourite of mine and I just love the little critters in the set.

I hope you enjoyed this week's 'Stash Buster'.

Hi everyone, for this week's 'Stash Buster' I have used a card sketch from Splitcoaststampers #SC289.  I just turned the sketch on it's side.  The patterned paper is from the Take to the Sky 12" x 12" Designer Series Paper pack.

I cut the pieces of Designer Series Paper at 7.6cm x 10.2cm and the mat 7.9cm x 10.5cm.  The strip of Mossy Meadow Cardstock is 3.8cm x 12.1cm and was embossed using the Metal Plate 3D Embossing Folder. The centre panel is 7.6cm x 5.7cm.  

You will get 12 cards from the one sheet of Designer Series Paper.

Stash Busting Saturday - Birthday Sparkle Kit

Hi everyone, I must apologise being a day late in posting this week's Stash Busting Saturday cards.  I am holding a fundraiser event for the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation at the end of June, and I was merrily creating for that and forgot to do my post.

For this week's Stash Buster I have selected the Birthday Sparkle Kit. In the kit you get supplies to make 6 cards, 3 each of 2 designs and 6 tags, 3 each of 2 designs.  I made one set of the cards as per the kit, change one set up slightly and made the 6 tags into cards.

This is what I made.




The first card is as per the kit.  Super quick and easy and a great layout and design.  The middle pieces that are removed from the Kraft Cardstock frame I used on my next card.


For this card I used the cupcake tag.  I trimmed off the little tag piece and created the cupcake as per the kit.  I then used the centre pieces from Card 1 and trimmed these into three 1" x 2 5/8 pieces.  These three pieces were adhered to the embossed background, a piece of Gold Glimmer Paper (this is retired) cut at 4" x 1 3/4" adhered over this and then the cupcake adhered to this.  The sentiment I created using the leftover bits in the kit.   I just realised I forgot to put the bakers twine bow on the sentiment panel but I am sure you can picture what it would look like (lol).


For this card I added the little Rabbit from the Playing in the Rain stamp set.  I coloured him using Wild Wheat Dark & Light and Crumb Cake Dark & Light Stampin' Blends.  I also change the layout of the balloons slightly. 


For my final card I used the other tag in kit.  I made the tag as per the kit but added the little Rabbit from the Playing in the Rain stamp set and some Designer Series Paper from the Country Lace Designer Series 12" x 12" Paper Pack.

I hope you enjoyed seeing these alternative cards made using the Birthday Sparkle Kit.

York Camp Project 2

Hi everyone, sharing another card I made for my friend Pat's Stamp Camp at York this weekend.


It is a fun fold card using the Adventurous Sky Bundle and the Take to the Sky 12" x 12" Designer Series Paper.

The plane was stamped with Black Memento Ink and coloured using Copper Clay Dark & Light, Smoky Slate Dark & Light and Night of Navy Light Stampin' Blends.  This was then die cut.

The sentiment was stamped using Black Memento Ink on Basic White Cardstock and then die cut.

The circle was die cut using the Deckled Circles Dies and a piece of the Sky patterned paper.

I hope you enjoyed this card.

Stash Busting Saturday - Dandy Designs 12" x 12" Designer Series Paper

Hi everyone, for this week's 'Stash Buster' I cased myself from the card I made for my friend Pat's Stamp Camp at York this weekend.  This was one of the designs I was trying out for the York Camp however, used another similar design so I decided to use it for this week's 'Stash Buster' instead.

I have used the Dandy Designs 12" x 12" Designer Series Paper and the Hearts & Hugs stamp set and dies.  The card sketch I have used is from JessCrafts and is the 6" x 6" Paper Buster #4.


The Designer Series Paper is cut at 7cm x 4cm (2 pieces of the same pattern) and 7cm x 2.8cm (1 piece from another pattern).  The Basic White cardstock mat is cut at 7.5cm x 11.8cm.  You can then decorate how you like. I created a centre panel using the Nested Essentials Dies and the Hearts & Hugs stamp set and dies.

The colouring was done using Crumb Cake Dark & Light and Pretty In Pink Light Stampin' Blends.

The flower centres were finished with some Rhinestones.

I hope you enjoyed this 'Stash Buster'.
