Delicate Details #CYCI141

This week I am playing along with Can You Case It? sketch challenge.   I loved the sketch because there was so many ways to play it and take inspiration from it.

Here is my card:

lm16-bc032

This card uses Delicate Details Stamp Set from the SAB Catalogue and Party Adventures Stamp Set from the Occasions Catalogue,  both catalogues are coming in the New Year.  I have used my go to colour combo Rich Razzleberry and Sweet Sugarplum.

How I made this Card?

  • Card base is Thick Whisper White (Cut at 210 x 148mm, scored at 105mm);
  • Sweet Sugarplum piece is 142 x 100mm, I stamped the largest lace stamp from Delicate Details Stamp Set in Rich Razzleberry Ombre Ink Pad;
  • The sentiment is from Party Adventures, I used Rich Razzleberry and Sweet Sugarplum Stampin’ Write Markers to ink the stamp;
  • Then I used the second largest circle Stitched Shapes Framelits to cut out the sentiment;
  • I used Snail Adhesive to attach the Sweet Sugarplum piece and Stampin’ Dimensionals to adhere the sentiment;
  • I finished it off with Rose Red Enamel Shapes from the Regals Collection of Enamel Shapes.

Here is the sketch from Can You Case It?:

Up & Away

I think this is one of my favourites from the new Occasions Catalogue and the matching DSP in the Sale-A-Bration catalogue.

This card was made for my Cousin who is off overseas in America for the next month… I wanted a card that quick and simple.  I instantly thought of the Lift Me Up Stamp Set and coordinating Up & Away Thinlits Dies.  This thinlits set has the detailed balloon plus the solid pieces to layer in the back to create filled in images.

lm16-gac001

I chose Real Red, Dapper Denim, Soft Sky and Whisper White.  I randomly stamped the bigger cloud from the Lift Me Up Stamp Set in Soft Sky to create the background.  I stamped the sentiment using the Labeler Alphabet Stamp Set in Dapper Denim.  I used Mini Glue Dots to attach the pieces of Real Red to the Dapper Denim balloon and then Tear & Tape to adhere the whole balloon to the card base.  I finished it off Pearls.

This card is great because you can just change the sentiment and the colours and it’ll be perfect for anyone.

Until next time… Happy Stampin’,

A bit of Birthday Magic

At the recent Onstage the they demonstrated the Magic Card as an example.  I decided to give it a go with the stamp sets we received.  I watched the video from Stampin’ Up! to get an understanding of how to make it.

lm16-bc029b

How I made this card?

  • The card base is Very Vanilla 210mm x 5.5in, I scored it at 2in from either end plus 1/4in outside of that.
  • The DSP is from By the Shore which was cut fit the middle section of the card base.  I adhered it around the edges and cut out the middle 1.5cm from each edge.
  • I cut out a separate piece of Very Vanilla that was slightly smaller then the centre section of the card base.
  • The two pieces with the sentiment on it use Window Sheet and Very Vanilla, both are cut to the same size and are cut to be slightly bigger then the hole cut in the centre of the card base, making sure that it’s tall enough to be even with the top of the card.
  • Stamping the sentiments onto the Very Vanilla piece first then matching the Window Sheet on top and stamping what you want seen first onto the Window Sheet with Black Stazon.
  • To assemble the card base I used Stampin’ Dimensionals and Tear & Tape, to get an easier explanation I would suggest to watch the video.
  • I used the smallest framelit in the Cheerful Tags Framelits Dies to create the Dapper Denim tab to hold together the two pieces.
  • I adhered the tab using Mini Glue Dots to the front of the Window Sheet and the back of the Very Vanilla piece.  To help secure it a bit better I used the Handheld Stapler and stapled the tab making sure not through the two pieces.  (The Handheld Stapler is on the Low Inventory List and will be retiring once it’s gone!!)
  • Because the wrap around is not quite wide enough to hold together I attached I solid piece to the back of the card.

I hope you give this card a go next time your making a birthday card.

Until next time… Happy Stampin’,

In Love With Letterpress

So lately I have been playing around with using Versamark on my embossing folders and have had some great results on the Brick Wall Embossing Folder.  This card I made for my cousin.

lm16-bc028a

How I made this card:

  • The base is half an A4 sheet (210 x 148mm, scored at 105mm)
  • The embossed layer is 100 x 144mm
  • I inked up the Brick Wall Embossing Folder with Versamark and ran it through the Big Shot
  • I covered it with Copper Embossing Folder, I used a dry brush to remove any excess powder
  • On separate piece of Whisper White I randomly stamped (and double stamped) the big and small balloons in Night of Navy and Marina Mist, then fussy the cluster
  • Then I separately stamped three smaller balloons, fussy cut them out
  • I used the Number of Years Stamp Set to stamp the 21 in Night of Navy and the Large Numbers Framelits Dies to cut out, added a bit of Clear Wink of Stella (Men like a bit of sparkle right?, haha)
  • I used the same stamp set and framelits die to create the banner, I used the Thoughtful Banners Stamp Set to stamp the Happy Birthday sentiment
  • Then I stuck everything down with Snail and popped up the separate balloons and the banner with Stampin’ Dimensionals

Here’s a close up of the card:

Birthday Blast Two Ways

I was lucky enough to attend Onstage Live at the beginning of November and I received the Birthday Blast Stamp Set as part of Prize Patrol (Demonstrator receive a coloured badge, well this time they changed to letters, and when they call out your badge you receive the a stamp set).

These two cards I made in about 10 minutes whilst waiting for my computer.  The first card  I made on the right uses Watermelon Wonder, Night of Navy, Crushed Curry.  The card on the left uses Rich Razzleberry Ombre, Rich Razzleberry, Sweet Sugarplum.

How cute and simple are these cards?  And I don’t even mind that they stamped a bit patchy…

There will be more cards coming that feature products from the Occasions and Sale-A-Bration Catalogues…

Until next time… Happy Stampin’,
