Enjoy the Moment Team Swap.

Enjoy the Moment Team Swap.

Today I have with monochrome themed card to share with you. Every so often I participate in a card swap between my extended Stampin’ Up! team members. I love doing them! It is a good way to be able to have a wide range of products and crafting styles to display for my inspiration.

To make this card I started with a Misty Moonlight card base and lightly sponged the front. Doing this simply broke up the block of colour, and blended the panel and the card base together. The images in the Enjoy the Moment stamp set are super trendy right now, and feature a cool sketched style. I wanted to create a focal point around the poppy centers, and just love White Emboss Powder on coloured cardstock.

I created the Very Vanilla panel using a mixture of images from the stamp set, stamped in Misty Moonlight – stamped off. I then sponged the edges, scrunched up a corner, and embossed the panel using the Scripty 3D Embossing Folder.

I adhered the poppy centers onto a piece of Seaside Spray, die cut using the Stitched Nested Labels Dies. The edges were sponged using Misty Moonlight. A Braided Linen Trim bow just finished off the focal piece.

Ornate Thanks Card.

Ornate Thanks Card.

Today I have a quick yet effective card to share with you. Some extra touches like an embossing folder and a heat embossed sentiment are great ways to add some wow factor to any card design. I hope you enjoy this tutorial. You’ll find the link to the YouTube video below.

To complete this project you will need:

  • Whisper White Thick cardstock – 14.9cm x 21cm
  • Mint Macaron cardstock – 14.4cm x 5cm
  • Ornate Garden Specialty Designer Series Paper – 14.4cm x 7.5cm
  • Basic Black cardstock – 8cm x 5cm
  • Braided Linen Trim – 25cm

Begin by embossing the piece of Mint Macaron cardstock using the Scripty 3D Embossing Folder. Adhere this to the Whisper White Thick cardbase using Seal or Multipurpose Liquid Glue. Keep an even border around the top, left-hand side, and the bottom.

Use the scalloped edge die from the Ornate Borders Dies to cut the left-hand side of the Ornate Garden Specialty DSP. Adhere this to the Whisper White Thick cardbase so that it overlaps the Mint Macaron layer using Seal or Multipurpose Liquid Glue. Keep an even border around the top, right-hand side, and the bottom.

Die cut the piece of Basic Black cardstock using the third up from smallest rectangle in the Stitched So Sweetly Dies.

Stamp the sentiment ‘Thanks’ and ‘from all of us’ from the Ornate Thanks stamp set using VersaMark ink into the center of the die cut Basic Black piece. Cover this with White Stampin’ Emboss Powder, and set using the Heal Tool.

On the reverse of the sentiment piece, adhere two strips of Seal+ or Tear & Tape. Zig zag a length of Braided Linen Trim to these strips. Adhere the sentiment piece to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

NOTE: This is different to the ribbon picture. I made my sample in the YouTube video before I had realised that the ribbon I had used was retired! Oops… :).

To finish off the card, place three Champagne Rhinestone Basic Jewels around the card front, making a triangle.

Jar of Flowers Happy Birthday.

Jar of Flowers Happy Birthday.

Hello! Welcome back to my blog. I have a fun peek through card to share with you using the Jar of Flowers bundle. If this is your first time visiting my blog, feel free to check out my other posts. Also, leave a comment to let me know you have stopped by!

To complete this project you will need:

  • So Saffron card base – 14.9cm x 21cm
  • Whisper White cardstock – 13.9cm x 10cm
  • Petal Pink card stock – 1cm x 6cm
  • Whisper White scrap pieces
  • Very Vanilla Scalloped Lace Trim – 20cm

Begin by stamping the large jar and a flower bouquet in Tuxedo Black Momento onto scrap pieces of Whsper White cardstock. NOTE: Stamp these images apart as one will be punched out and the other will be fussy cut.

Place the small jar image in reverse onto a stamping block. Stamp this solid image in Balmy Blue stamped off to fill in the large jar stamped image. Colour the stems using an Old Olive Stampin’ Blend. Punch this image out using the Jar Punch.

Colour the bouquet of flowers using Stampin’ Blends. Colours I used in the pictured card were: Old Olive, Poppy Parade dark, Pumpkin Pie, Daffodil Delight and Flirty Flamingo. Once you coloured the image, fussy cut it using Paper Snips.

Place the Whisper White layer on the card front while the card base is open, and line it up with the right-hand side edge. Place the floral die from the Ornate Borders Dies along this edge of the card front. Run these through your die cutting and embossing machine forward and back. Remove the Whisper White layer and line up the floral die again. Use a piece of washi tape to hold the die in place. Run this through your machine again, forward and back.

Emboss the Whisper White layer using the Scripty 3D Embossing Folder. Be mindful that the words will be running in the correct orientation. Adhere this piece to the So Saffron card base. Use the die cut edge to line up the two layers.

Adhere the jar to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue or Tear & Tape. Adhere the bouquet on top of the jar using Stampin’ Dimensionals. NOTE: Be sure to place the adhesive where it won’t go over the holes in the detailed edge.

Stamp the ‘Happy Birthday’ sentiment in Poppy Parade ink onto the Petal Pink strip of cardstock. Punch the ends to fit the sentiment using the Tailored Tag Punch. Adhere this to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Tie a bow with the Very Vanilla Scalloped Lace Trim and adhere it using a Glue Dot.

Finally, place three Pearl Basic Jewels around the card front, creating a triangle.
