Frosted Vellum

Hi Everyone, I am sharing a card I cased from Tami White on the Frosted Vellum technique.  I just love this card, so I had to make it and share it with you.  Tami has a great video tutorial on how to do this technique that you can find here.


Someone special will be getting this card for Christmas this year.

Thank you for visiting.

Emerging Colour

Hi everyone, sharing a technique with you today called "Emerging Colour".   I have done my card in browns and blues as the ladies who attend my card classes wanted something for the "Guys", but it also looks really great in bright colours with a darker colour such as Elegant Eggplant for Basic Black over the top.


I used Tip Top Taupe and Sahara Sand as the colours to emerge, with Night of Navy ink over the top.   The stamp set is Painter's Palette.

Technique


Stamp the smaller paint strip stamp image in Sahara Sand and Tip Top Taupe onto a 9.5cm x 13.8cm piece of White cardstock. Stamp the dots stamp image in Sahara Sand onto the same White cardstock piece. Make sure it is dry before next step.

Stamp the larger paint strip stamp image in Versamark over the stamped piece checking placement each time to get an even spread. (You can see where you have stamped previously by holding it towards a light source – it will be a little shiny).

Cover the whole piece with Clear embossing powder and then heat set with a heat gun ensuring all the embossing powder has melted.

Using a sponge or brayer add Night of Navy ink all over the piece. Wipe off all the excess ink from the embossed areas with a tissue revealing the previously stamped images.

Cut a piece on the diagonal from the Emerging Colour piece you just created (You will have left over to make another card). Adhere this to the bottom of a 9.5cm x 13.8cm piece of Whisper White cardstock. Add a strip each of the 0.5cm wide pieces of Tip Top Taupe, Sahara Sand and Night of Navy cardstock on the diagonal just above the Emerging Colour piece.

Stamp the easel image using Night of Navy ink onto a 10cm x 7cm piece of Whisper White cardstock. Hand cut out.

Stamp the sentiment using Tip Top Taupe ink onto a 5.5cm x 5.5cm piece of Whisper White cardstock. Cut out using one of the small scalloped edge squares from the Layering Squares Framelits. Adhere this to the easel. Adhere the easel to the card front using dimensionals.

Adhere the piece to the card front and add three blue sequin stars to finish.


I decorated one of the white gift boxes available in the current Holiday Catalogue to go along with the card.  The sentiment is from the Confetti Celebrations stamp set coloured with Stampin' Write Markers.

A little bit of Chocolate Chip...

Hi everyone, I have been playing with the Irresistibly Floral Specialty Designer Series Paper.  You know sometimes when you have an idea but not the right piece of paper to make your project. This paper is perfect for this, you just need to add the ink or inks of your choice.


This is another card made using the Grateful Bunch stamp set and the coordinating Blossom Bunch punch.   I have gone with a monochromatic look for my card using Chocolate Chip as my colour of choice.  The leaves and flowers have been created using the stamp set, with the leaves being fussy cut out.  They were both coloured using the Clear Wink of Stella pen and the Chocolate Chip ink.

The sentiment is from the Thoughtful Banners stamp set, punched out using the Classic Label punch.

Country Livin'

Hi everyone, for today's card I am using some of my left overs from previous projects.  I seem to end up with all these little bits and bobs, especially if I am demonstrating various items for card classes.

The strip of patterned paper is from the Morroccan Designer Series Paper pack with the background stamped using Delightful Dijon ink and the Ghoulish Grunge stamp set and Early Espresso ink and the Timeless Texture stamp set.  The sentiment was made using the Labeler Alphabet stamp set.

Cupcake Anyone?

Hi everyone, a quick and easy card today using the fabulous Sweet Cupcake stamp set and the coordinating Cupcake Cutout Framelits dies.  The best bit is that you get a 10% discount if you purchase these together in the Bundle, cost is $73.75 AUD.


This is a three step stamping process for the cupcake and also the wrapper.  I stamped first with Blushing Bride, then Flirty Flamingo and finished with Watermelon Wonder.  A little Clear Wink of Stella was added to the Watermelon Wonder inked areas to give a little shimmer.  The wrapper was stamped with Crumb Cake, Soft Suede and then Early Espresso.

The background White piece is from the Fancy Frost Specialty Designer Series Paper.  I decided to leave it in the raw state as I liked the contrast with the piece of spotted Blushing Bride Designer Series Paper from the Subtles Paper Stack.  The card base is Watermelon Wonder and piece of the Watermelon Wonder Mini Striped Ribbon was added to finish off.

The sentiment is also from the Sweet Cupcake stamp set.

Grateful Bunch

Hi everyone, just an update why I have not been regularly posting to my blog the last 2 months.  My Mum was admitted to hospital 9 weeks ago and has been diagnosed with Dementia which means that she has to go into care. We are now just doing the copious amounts of paperwork to get her situated in a good nursing home.

My creativity has taken a bit of a dive lately, but I had a little time to play with the Grateful Bunch stamp set and Blossom Bunch punch.


The card base is Kraft card stock with the Irresistibly Floral Specialty Designer Series Paper sponged with Smoky Slate as the focal background.  

The leaves were stamped and coloured with Always Artichoke ink and the Clear Wink of Stella pen.    I then fussy cut the leaves and arranged then behind the flowers which were made using Daffodil Delight ink and the Clear Wink of Stella pen.   These were punched out using the Blossoms Bunch punch and then layered together to make the flowers.  A small basic black dot was put in the centre of the flowers (these were made using the 1/8" Handheld Circle punch).

The sentiment is from the Thoughtful Banners stamp set and Classic Label punch.
