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.

Sketch Card Challenge # 8 – Using the Sailing Home stamp set

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.
  • Using an oval frame die from my stash I die cut a black oval frame and attached to the front of the card.
  • 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.

  • 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.

Rainbow Unicorn Card

Hello and thank you for visiting my blog.

For this Unicorn card I decided to use the Bokeh background stamp. This was only a small stamp so I had to stamp four times to get the correct size.

How I made this card

  • For the base I used A4 Whisper White card cut in half to measure 21 cm x 15 cm scored and folded at 10.5 cm.
  • I cut a piece of Black card measuring 14.2 cm x 9.6 cm and adhered it to the card base.
  • I then cut a piece of Whisper White measuring 13.7 cm x 9.1 cm to do my stamping on.
  • Using daubers I place the rainbow ink colours onto the Bokeh stamp and stamped onto the white card – I repeated this 3 more times until the whole of the white card was covered.
  • I then stamped the Unicorn and Sentiment over the top using black ink.
  • Using the Highland Heather Stampin’ Blends I coloured the unicorn’s body.
  • Using a black Stamp and Write I coloured the main and tail.
  • Using Wink of Stella I covered the Unicorn.
  • I stuck all the layers together and finished the card with some ribbon and an rhinestone.

Good Morning Magnolia Card

Hello and thank you for visiting my blog.

Today I have made this lovely card using the Good Morning Magnolia stamp set.

How I made this card

  • For the base card I used A4 Crumb Cake card. I cut it in half then scored down the centre folded and burnished. This size card fits lovely into the C6 envelope.
  • Using the leaf stamp and Crumb Cake ink I randomly stamped leaves onto the base card.
  • I stamped the large flower onto Whisper White Card using basic gray ink. As this was a large stamp I decided to use my Stamparatus.
  • Using my Big Shot and the largest Nested Label die I cut out the flower.
  • Using my Stamping blends I coloured the magnolia flower, I find this part very relaxing and therapeutic.
  • Cut 15 cm of linen ribbon, then stick a strip of tear tape along the bottom of the card and place the ribbon on top. Trim the edges once placed on the card.
  • Using dimentionals adhere the flower to the card base.
  • Stamp the Hello sentiment onto Whisper White cut out and adhere to the card.

Hello and thank you for visiting my blog.

Today I am posting my 5th Sketch challenge card I am a bit late getting this done as I have had problems with the internet recently. For this challenge I am using the lovely Let it Ride Stamp Set.

How I made this card

  • For the base card I used whisper white 25.5 cm x 18 cm (10″ x 7″) scored and folded in the middle.
  • For the outside panel I have used Crumb Cake card 5.5 cm x 18 cm. Using Early Espresso ink I have stamped the tree images. I then cut the Early Espresso card 7 cm x 18 cm and leaving a thin gap in the centre of the card adhered the card to the base.
  • Using white card – I cut out a circle using the circle dies.
  • I then stamped the horse image onto the white circle and coloured with the Stampin’ Blends.

Card Sketch Challenge # 7 Using the Beautiful Friendship Stamp Set – Join My Stampin’ Up! Team

Hello and thank you for visiting my blog.

Today I am posting my 7th Sketch challenge card. I am using the Beautiful Friendship Stamp Set, I absolutely love this very pretty flower stamp set.

My sketch card challenge was inspired by this card.

How I made this card

  • For the base card I used Whisper White 25.5 cm x 18 cm (10″ x 7″) scored and folded in the middle.
  • I then cut a piece of Seaside Spray card cut to 12 cm x 17 cm and glued to the base card.
  • Using Soft Sea Foam I cut a strip which measured 12 cm x 8 cm . I then cut this piece into 2 leaving one side slightly longer than the other. I rounded the edges of the inside part only. I glued this to the front of the card.
  • I then cut some Whisper White card at 6 cm and then cut in two to fit the inside of the Soft Sea Foam rounding the inside corners to match.
  • I then cut a piece of Seaside Spray card at 7 cm x 4 cm and rounded all 4 edges. I then cut a piece of white card measuring 6 cm x 3.5 cm and rounded the edges and glued both pieces together.
  • Using my Stamparatus I stamped the large flower image onto the white pieces of card using Seaside Spray ink and then glued then to the inside of the Soft Sea Foam card.
  • I stamped the flowers and leaves on some scrap white card and fussy cut them out. I glued these to the white card centre piece. Using Tear & Tape I attached some ribbon to the back and then attached to the card using dimentionals.
  • I finished the card by stamping my sentiment onto a scrap piece of white card and attached to the card using glue.
