Pop Up Cards

Here are some pop up cards that I have been teaching in my classes recently.

Birthday Surprise
Simple pop up card using the Sketched Birthday stamp set and banner punch.

Pop up surprise is three presents stacked up inside.

Big Butterfly
I wanted to make a special card for a friend's 50th birthday. My friend is very creative and has been to art school, so it had to be something that had a wow factor for her.

For the front of the card, I chose a collage style, using Gorgeous Grunge and Daydream Medallions stamp sets.

Inside, I chose to do this Swallowtail pop up card that was taught to me by my talented downline, Juanita van Winkel.

Do you like it?

As promised here are some more cards made with the "Hey Valentine" stamp set...
Birthday Boy:
Stamps used - Hey Valentine, A Dozen Thoughts, World Map  Horray, Its Your Day stamp sets and the Undefined Kit for making an X stamp

Birthday Fishes:
I had fun making this diarama card which includes two of the stamps from the Hey Valentine stamp set.

Because it was too wide to fit in a regular envelope, I made a pizza style box to put my card into...

Here is the lid of the box...

Hey Valentine Stamp Set
I brought this stamp set from the new/current occasions catalogue and used it once to make a valentines card. I was going to pack it away but then had second thoughts. Maybe I could use it for other occasions such as my up coming extravaganza....

So after making my little treat bags using brown packing paper and the mini treat bag thinlits (you can find them on page 9 of the occasions catalogue), I used the "hey valentine" stamp set to make gift tags...

I also made some treat bags, using one rasberry chocolate log for each cellophane bag. My kids (who are nearly adults now) both wanted one!
The one with the yellow bird was made for my grand-niece for Easter.

Making a Easter bird treat holder, got me inspired to make little Easter cards...

Which then led to making birthday cards...
But I will save them for next week!

Thanks for visiting, happy crafting,
from Rhonda

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...

Wet Wipe Ink Pad

Attention: open in a new window. E-mail

Tuesday, 03 March 2015

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

Attention: open in a new window. E-mail

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.
