My daughter got married last weekend. It was a perfect day, exactly what she wanted...
A mix of casual, fun, relaxing, rustic and vintage.

Danielle's husband-to-be liked antlers so we made an antler stamp, using the undefined stamp carving kit from Stampin' Up!
We used it on the envelopes (above) and the also on the paper serviettes the afternoon tea.

Cake topper using the retired pennant parade stamp set...

Old suitcase (it used to be Danielle's great grandfathers!) for cards...
We  used the retired bigz dies; Perfect pennants and Big alphabet simple letters.

Seating plan...
Uses sponging, hardwood stamp and heart framelits.

Mason jar favours. (These had wrapped chocolates inside). The tag is punched from the new note tag punch and the stripped heart is from the retired hearts a flutter stamp set.

To finish, here a few photos of the wedding...
Danielle asked for both her parents to walk her down the aisle...

Wet Wipe Ink Pad

I'm back!
Two months ago my daughter arrived home from 3 years overseas. She is getting married on the 8th of March to a guy from Norhtern Ireland. I have been making the most of my time at home with her and helping to plan her wedding. It's been great but the downside is that I have let my blogging slide by...

So today I have some cards for you that I made for a class last year. It revisits an old technique of using a wet wipe folded into a square, with different coloured inks dropped onto it. The whole area that you will be pressing your stamp into needs to be covered with ink. Just make sure that the drops of different colours are not overlapping, you don't want to mix your colours. Then just press your stamp into the wet wipe as you would a normal stamp pad.

And viola...


This multicoloured stamped image was taught at our Christmas team training by Bev Poultney.

And finally, some variations of the card that I taught in class...

Covered Diaries

Friday, 05 December 2014

Covered diaries are a good stocking filler.
They don't cost very much and you can easily brighten them up with our Stampin' Up! papers and stamps.
This cheerful flower one, I made for my sister. The diary letters are stickers from the "Everyday Adventure - Project Life Accessory Pack".

This second diary was given to me by my upline, Rachael Knight, at our recent training day. She gave us Stampin' Up! kraft wrapping paper to cover the diary with and we decorated it as we wanted.

Stamps used are Borderettes with white craft ink along the spine and Flower Patch with crumb cake ink.
The pattern on my die cut oval is a retired stamp from the Oh, Hello stamp set.
The numbers are from the Perfect Print Numbers Bigz Die.

Here are a couple of Christmas cards that I have made using the Bright and Beautiful Christmas stamps and matching star framelits:




Z fold cards using framelits

Today I am going to show you a couple of cards that I have made using some of Stampin' Up!'s framelits to create a simple version of the swing cards that are so popular right now. While my cards do not "swing", at first glance they look similar and are very easy to make using the framelits you already have on hand.

This was one of the cards that I taught at my regular monthly class.
Here is it opened up...

To make this card you need a 29.8cm x 10.5cm piece of card. In landscape position, score at 7.4cm and 14.9cm.
The 14.9cm score line folds the card in half and then the 7.4cm score line, folds back on itself to create the Z shape you see in the photo above. If you open the card up, you will see two quarter sections and one half section.

It is the front quarter section that you want to place the framelit on. Line the centre of the framelit with the 7.4cm score line and line the top plate of the Big Shot with this score line also...

Because the top plate only covers half of the framelit it will only cut out half.

Here is another Z fold card using the Bright and Beautiful stamp set. The finished card is 13.4cm square.

Here is the inside...



Curvy Keepsake

Gift Packaging Ideas

The curvy keepsake thinlit die can be used to make a quick and easy box like the one on the left.
I also made a 3 x 3 card to match (which will give you an idea of the size of the box - small but cute).

I wanted a bigger box as well and used the curvy keepsake die and one extra sheet of A4 card.
The rounded ends of the keepsake die became the handles and the pointed ends overlapped at the front.

To make the box, I scored an A4 card (in portrait position) at 5cm, 10cm, 15cm and 20cm.
Then I turned to landscape position and scored at 5cm and 20cm. I cut the end of the card off, at 25cm and used this piece to create a flap that wrapped around the box and fitted into the die cut slots to make a simple closure.

Paper piecing and punch art

Attention: open in a new window. E-mail

Sunday, 12 October 2014

I had fun making these punch art chickens. They use a variety of Stampin' Up! punches including a couple of retired punches.

This is a punch art that you may have seen before on my website, when I made some muppet card candy. Anyway I made I whole lot more muppets on cards recently and this is one of them...

Bob the Builder
This card is not really punch art but rather paper piecing as I drew the image I wanted on card and cut it out then pieced all the pieces together. The face and hat are both circle punches but the rest is all hand cut.
