Royal Peacock Suite using the Noble Peacock Stampset

Hello everyone thank you for visiting my blog. Today I have made my first card using the Nobel Peacock Suite. This is my favourite suite in the new 2019 – 2020 catalogue.

How I made this card

For the base I used Pretty Peacock card measuring 6″ x 12″ scored and folded in half . For the side panel I cut of a foil rectangle 5.5 cm x 14 cm and using the Speciality card I cut a rectangle 5 cm x 13.5 cm . Glue both rectangles together then attach some ribbon to the bottom using tear & tape.

Stamp the Peacock onto Whisper White Card using Blueberry Bushel ink. I used my Stamparatus to do this. Colour the bird using Stampin’ Write pens then die cut using the Peacock die. I fussy cut the white boarder off so that I would have more foil showing. Using the same die cut the Peacock out of the Old Olive foil card and glue the coloured bird onto the foil bird. Adhere to the base card.

I stamped my sentiment onto white card and punched out with the 2″ circle punch, I then punched a starburst circle with contrasting foil card. I die cut some leaves and attached to the back of the sentiment and attached to the card using dimensionals.

I finished off the card with a co-ordinating rhinestone.

Unicorn Birthday Card Using the Leave a Little Sparkle Stamp Set

Hello everyone thank you for visiting my blog. Today I have made my first card using the delightful unicorn stamp set called Leave a little Sparkle. What little girl wouldn’t love to receive this lovely card.

This is a lovely stamp set for that little angel in your family. For all of the parties she goes to. Or even that little crafter.

How I made this card

For the base card I used Whisper White 25.5 cm x 18 cm (10″ x 7″)card scored and folded at 12.7 cm. I cut the card by eye so I didn’t follow any measurements, however I did measure the card afterwards. The pink card measured 10.2 cm x 12.2 cm, I stuck this to the base card. I then cut the Basic Grey card at 9.4 cm x 11.7 cm.

Punch a grey Starburst and a pink 2″ circle.

I wiped the card before stamping with my embossing buddy then stamped the unicorn image using Versamark ink onto the grey card, this stops the embossing powder sticking to areas of the card where you don’t want it. I then covered the stamped image with white embossing powder. I then stamped my sentiment with Versamark and onto the circle and covered with silver embossing powder.

Using the heat tool embossed the image and sentiment. I love watching this part of the process.

Using my Stampin’ blends I coloured the mane and tail and then coloured with Wink of Stella to give it that special sparkle.

I stuck the two circles together and before attaching them to the card I stuck some silver metalic thread to the back using tear & tape. I think this gives that extra element of sparkle. Finish the card with a few rhinestones.

Today is my birthday (4th July) My gorgeous husband John took the day off work and took me to York for the day. We had a lovely picnic on the river bank, it made a real change just taking the time to enjoy each others company.

On the way home I went on a little trip down memory lane visiting the village where I grew up near Millington Pastures x When I got home I made a birthday card using the Beautiful Friendship stamp set with the note card and envelope set. For the demonstration please see the video below.

Card Making Classes in Cherry Burton – East Riding of Yorkshire

Hello and thank you for visiting my blog. Today I am launching the details of my up and coming Card/Papercraft Classes to be held in Cherry Burton, which is in the East Riding of Yorkshire, England. Cherry Burton is a small village about 2.5 miles from Beverley.

I plan to hold these classes on a weekly basis on Thursday afternoons and evenings.

Here’s a sneaky peek at one of the first cards we are going to make

The first class will be on Thursday 11th July 2019. I plan to do 2 classes each week the first one on Thursday afternoon starting at 1pm until 3pm. The class will be repeated again on the same evening 7pm until 9pm. Initially while the classes are small I plan to hold them in my home. I may progress to larger premises in the future depending on the interest.

These classes are for adults only 16+ however I may hold classes for children and an accompanying adult at a later date.

This class is suitable for all levels from beginner to avid crafter. I will start by introducing the basic’s, introducing simple stamping cards and progressing each week learning new techniques. The main aim of the classes are to gather and meet new friends, take up a new hobby and relax and have fun.

How I made this card

Base card whisper white 25.5 cm x 18 cm (10″ x 7″) scored and folded at 13cm. Petal pink card 16 cm x 11.5 cm adhere to the card base. Crumb Cake card 15cm x 10.5 cm adhere to the pink card.

Stamp the Magnolia flower onto Whisper White card and heat emboss using white embossing powder. Colour the flower using Aqua Painter and Petal Pink ink and the leaves with Coastal Cabana ink. Fussy cut the flower and adhere to the card.

Stamp the sentiment using Crumb Cake ink and die cut using the Stitched Nested Labels Dies. Attach the twine and the sentiment to the card using Dimensionals.

Card Sketch Challenge # 4

This is my fourth card for Tricia Smiths card sketch challenge –

I loved this challenge and I am really happy with this card I think it is really delicate and pretty. I used 2 stamp sets from the new Stampin’ Up! annual catalogue Beautiful Friendship and Budding Borders. I have used Seaside Spray Card which is my favourite new In Colour with the coordinating gingham designer series paper (DSP).

Card base 18 cm x 24.5 cm, sore and fold in half. Layer with Seaside Spray card 11.5 x 17 cm and coordinating ginham DSP 10 x 15 cm. Stamp a border on whisper white 17 x 1.8cm glue to the gingham tucking in a length of lace ribbon.

I cut two blue and one white squares 4.5 x 4.5 cm. I then cut three more squares two in white card and one in blue card they measured 4 x 4 cm. On the smaller white squares I stamped 2 flowers then on the small blue square I stamped my sentiment using white ink.

I glued the flowers onto the blue squares and the sentiment onto the white square and attached them to my card using dimentionals.

Card Sketch Challenge # 3 – Using Floral Essence Stamp Set and various punches

I just love a sketch challenge to get my creative juices flowing. I really enjoyed this card sketch challenge. I used a coupe of stamp sets and a number of punches.

First of all I made my own Designer Series Paper (DSP) using the Perennial Birthday stamp set mixed with a small flower stamp from Free as a Bird. I stamped with Whisper White ink onto Balmy Blue card which measured 12.1 cm x 17.5 cm. I stuck this onto my base card which measured 25 cm x 18 cm scored and folded at 12.5 cm.

Using the Floral Essence stamp set I stamped a flower onto onto Balmy Blue card and punched out using the star burst punch. I stamped the Happy Birthday sentiment from the Butterfly Wishes over the top of the flower.

I stamped and punched 4 flowers and coated with punched velum. I made a banner from Whisper White card – this measured 3 cm x 12.5 cm. Using the tear tape I adhered the white satin ribbon with the silver trim. I stamped some leaves and fussy cut them, I punched out some sprigs and arranged around the card before sticking the arrangement to the card. To give the card that pop of colour I stamped and fussy cut a couple of flowers using melon mambo ink.
