Make It Monday #7: Petal Garden Designer Series Paper

Make It Monday #7: Petal Garden Designer Series Paper

Vellum is a beautiful, versatile and fragile type of paper that can add uniqueness to any project. There are lots of ways to use vellum and today I’m going to share with you just one idea.

I love the  Petal Garden DSP, but I find that it is bright and vibrant, and I sometimes struggle to use it.  So I’ve challenged myself to use it.

I’ve started by selecting different patterns from the Petal Garden DSP, the flowers seemed to be to vibrant and bright for me and took away from the greeting which was my main focus on this card. So I placed a piece of Vellum the same size as the floral piece to soften it a bit.

I stamped my greeting from Thankful Thoughts stamp set and cut it out using the Layering Circle Framelits.

Make It Monday #5: Clean & Simple Card Sets

Make It Monday #5: Clean & Simple Card Sets

What does it mean to be Clean & Simple?  Well, it’s all about the design.  Your project needs to be

  • Uncluttered
  • Lots of White or open space
  • One main focal point

My project today features the Heartfelt Blooms Stamp Set.  This design is first of the new Distinktive Stamp range coming soon to Stampin’ Up!.  You can earn this stamp set for free when you spend $90 or more in my online store before 31 March 2018.

How are the Distinktive Stamp range different from other stamp images 

The new Distinktive stamps lay down the ink at different opacities giving the finished image more depth – just ink the surface lightly for a perfect photographic finish.

As this stamp has so much detail, I’ve decided to keep it simple and only stamp in one colour of ink.  The image has been stamped with Sweet Sugarplum Classic ink the bottom left corner of a 4-1/4″ x 4-1/4″ piece of Whisper White Cardstock.

A created a border  1/4″ in from the outside along all four sides.  The greeting also comes from the same stamp set (there are 3 to choose from) stamped with Memento Black Ink.  My finished card is adhered to my 4-1/2″ x 4-1/2″ Sweet Sugarplum Cardbase.

Make It Monday #4: Adding Colour to Outline Images

Make It Monday #4: Adding Colour to Outline Images

I use to stay clear of outline image stamps.  Why?  Because they meant extra work, extra time to colour the images and I like to create quick and easy cards.  But I have since discovered a new way to use my outline image stamps, and today I’m going to share with you just one way to create quick and easy cards without colouring in your outline images.

I’ve used the Fallen Flowers Stamp Set and stamped in Versamark ink onto a variety of different colour cardstock.  Then heat embossed with Clear Embossing Powder.  The large flower I stamped twice and then cut out the center using a pair of paper snips and popped it up with a Stampin’ Dimensional.

All images have been die cutted using the coordinating May Flower Framelits alternatively you can fussy cut, be sure to leave a slight border around each image

The greeting was stamped onto Whisper White Cardstock using Birthday Blooms Stamp Set and cut out using the Stitched Shapes  Framelit Dies

Make It Monday #2: Valentine Treat Holder

Make It Monday – Valentine Treat Holder

I’m super excited you enjoyed the first edition of Make It Monday, if you missed it you can view HERE  This week for Make It Monday#2 we creating a Treat Holder.

While I was cleaning my craft area for the new year I stumbled across a box full of these treat holders and thought they would be a perfect gift for someone this Valentines.  I originally ordered these square tubes from ACherryOnTop.com 

To create my project this week I used the Painted With Love Specialty DSP,  this paper has gold foil accents and I love how it glimmers in the light.  I’ve selected my colours directly from the pattterned paper pack,

My greeting comes from Bloomin’ Love Stamp Set and die cutted it out with the Sweet & Sassy Framelits.  The treat tube is filled with chocolate M&M’s.

Make It Monday #1: Sunshine Wishes

Make It Monday – Sunshine Wishes

Sunshine Wishes

Welcome to our first Make It Monday series for 2018.  I’m excited to be sharing a new project tutorial each week, and I’m starting today with a Valentines project.  This project features the Sunshine Wishes Thinlits .  No Stamping.

To create my card this week, I’ve cut 10 x Love die from the Sunshine Wishes Thinlits in Whisper White Cardstock. I’ve adhered them to my Whisper White Card front using liquid adhesive.  Alternatively you can die cut them with the Adhesive sheets making for easy placement.

I’ve selected three (3) colours to draw the eye in, and these colours all work well together.  Powder Pink, Sweet Sugarplum and Melon Mambo.  Each of these colours have been cut 3 times and layered on top of each other for height.

To finish my card I added some gold thread under the coloured “Love” die cuts and randomly placed Metallics Sequins to finish it off.
