Monday Crafternoon – Casing the Catalogue # 2

Hello and thank you for visiting my blog.

For today’s Case the Catalogue I have chosen to make this #simplestamping card. You can find this card on page 67 of the current annual catalogue.

How I made this card

  • For the base I used Whisper White A4 thick card cut in half 15 cm x 21cm scored and folded in half at 10.5 cm.
  • I cut another piece white card measuring 10 cm x 14.5 cm this was to stamp my image on. Using the stitched Nested Label dies – I used the 4th smallest label and cut out with Bermuda Bay.
  • On this label I wiped down with my Embossing Buddy then stamped my sentiment using Versamark ink and covered with white embossing powder. I then used my heat tool to set the embossing powder.
  • Using the Perennial Birthday stamp set I stamped my images onto the white card. Using daubers I inked up the flower with leaves, stamped onto some white card and fussy cut out.
  • I glued this flower onto the sentiment then attached the sentiment to the card using dimentionals.

Card Sketch Challenge # 9 – Free as a Bird

Hello and thank you for visiting my blog.

For this sketch challenge I have used a combination of different things, the Free as a Bird stamp set, with Magnolia Designer Series Paper (DSP). I have used a paper doiley and lace ribbon which I think give it a really pretty finish I am really happy with the results.

How I made this card

  • For the base I used an A4 piece of Whisper White I I cut the card in half at 14.8 cm, scored and folded at 10.5 cm.
  • I cut a piece of the Magnolia Lane DSP measuring 14 cm x 9 cm and cut into three 3 cm strips.
  • I adhered the strips to the base of the card.
  • Using the Free as a Bird Stamp set I stamped my bird image onto some white card, I punched it out using the 2″ circle punch. I painted the images using an Aqua painter with the inks.
  • I punched out a coordinating Early Espresso card using the Starburst punch and glued the bird image to it. I then layered it onto a doily.
  • I placed 2 widths of lace onto the card using tear tape.
  • I then placed my image on top towards the left hand side.
  • I finished the card by adding a lace bow and a sentiment.

Monday Crafternoon- Casing the Catalogue #1 – Butterfly Wishes

Hello and thank you for visiting my blog.

Today I am introducing a new series that I have called Monday Crafternoon were I bring you a project every Monday afternoon. I am going to start by casing the Stampin’ Up! catalogue.

How I made this card

  • For the base I used an A4 piece of Smoky Grey card ( according to the catalogue it should have been Sahara Sand, but until I came to make this card I hadn’t realised that I hadn’t got this in my collection – I have since ordered it!) I cut the card in half until it measured 21 cm x 14.8 cm, scored and folded at 10.5 cm.
  • I cut another piece of Smoky Slate measuring 14 cm x 9.5 cm. Using the Stitched Nested Dies I took the largest die and embossed the die into the card.
  • On this piece of card I stamped the smaller butterfly from the Butterfly Wished stamp set. Using the coordinating ink I stamped off the first butterfly and used the second generations stamp.
  • Using the second to largest Stitched Nested Dies I die cut using The Designer Series Paper (DSP) and as per the card from the catalogue I glued it to the grey card. I carefully ripped the opposite end.
  • I die cut he second to smallest stitched nested die in the Granny Apple Green card.
  • On the Whisper White card I stamped 2 yellow flowers, a green butterfly after stamping them off once. I then stamped 4 grey leaves and the sentiment and fussy cut them all out.
  • I took a length of the ribbon, folded it and secured it with the tear tape. I placed everything on the card and stuck into place.
  • I finished off the card by adding embellishments.

Hello and thank you for visiting my blog.

For this sketch challenge I have used the Sailing Home stamp set with coordinating Designer Series Paper (DSP). I am really happy with the results. This was my second attempt at the challenge

How I made this card

  • For the base I used Whisper White thick card measuring 25.5 cm x 18 cm (10″ x 7″) scored and folded at 12.7 cm.
  • I cut a piece of DSP measuring 12 cm x 17 cm and adhered it to the card base.

  • I then stamped a sailing boat image with one of the seagulls and die cut with a smaller oval die onto some Smoky Slate card using black ink.
  • I stamped a sentiment onto a 1.5 cm of the grey card and backed it onto a 2 cm strip of black card.

Card Sketch Challenge # 6

Hello and thank you for visiting my blog.

Today I am posting my 6th Sketch challenge card. I am using a couple of stamp sets, Budding Borders and Free as a Bird.

How I made this card

  • For the base card I used thick Whisper White 25.5 cm x 18 cm (10″ x 7″) scored and folded in the middle.
  • For the stripes at the bottom of the card I cut a piece of Designer Series Paper measuring 10.8 cm x 12.6 cm from the Come Sail with Me series. Adhere to the base card.
  • Using a strip of Whisper White card using my Stamparatus I stamped one of the flower borders, I then used the leaf border with seaside spray to do double stamping.
  • I then attached a width of Polka Dot Ribbon using tear & tape to the front of the card , I then attached the border over the top allowing the ribbon to show at the bottom. I trimmed along the edges.
  • Using the scalloped circle die I cut a circle using the blue card.
  • I then punched a white circle using the 2″ circle punch.
  • Stamp a bird onto scrap white card then fussy cut and adhere to the white circle.
  • Squeeze the seaside spray ink pad together to allow some of the ink to go onto the lid, then using an aqua brush use the ink to colour the bird.
  • Glue the bird to the circle.
  • Stamp the hello sentiment to scrap white card, attach to seaside spray card and attach to the front of the card.
  • I finished the card by adding a bow.
