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.

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’,

Lauren

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’,

Merry & Bright Brick Wall

At the beginning of November when I attended Onstage Live I participated in my teams ATC (Artist Trading Card) Swap.  These cards needed to be 3 x 4in in size and must use any current products.

This is my card that I came up with:

lm16-cc002

How I made this card:

  • Card base is Emerald Envy
  • Brick Wall layer is Whisper White, I inked up the Brick Wall Textured Impression Embossing Folder with Versamark and ran through the Big Shot and covered with Gold Embossing Powder (I used a dry brush to remove any excess powder)
  • The Merry & Bright sentiment (from the Stitched with Cheer Stamp Set) was stamped twice and cut out the a whole one banner and then one with just Merry & Bright, I used Stampin’ Dimensionals to attach the two piece together
  • The snowflake (from the Tin of Tags Stamp Set) stamped on Vellum in Versamark and covered with White Embossing Powder, I cut out the snowflakes with the 4.5cm circle from the Layering Circles Framelits Dies

This card can be reconfigured to create any sized card.

Until next time… Happy Stampin’,

Birthday Card, Global-Design-Project, Occasions 2017

GDP#061 // Colour Challenge

After the excitement that was Onstage Live I wanted to get into playing with the new stamp sets that were gifted to us during the event as well as the items that were apart of the PPP.  But unfortunately my BBB will be having a weekend stay at the mail centre. Boo!!

Anyway lets get onto the card which I made for this Global Design Project Colour Challenge.  Using Basic Black, Emerald Envy and Sweet Sugarplum.

gdp061

Here is my card:

lm16-bc026

I took inspiration from the guest designer Juana Ambida’s layout.  I used the brand new stamp set Birthday Bright from the new Occasions Catalogue coming in January 2017.

There are some great sentiments and ribbon looking stamps.  They also have a balloon stamp with two different fill in stamp sets to decorate the balloon with.

I can’t wait to show you more cards using this stamp set and other stamp sets from the new Occasions Catalogue and Sale-A-Bration Catalogues.

Until next time… Happy Stamping,

Lauren

Anniversary Card, Annual Catalogue 2016-2017, Case the Designer, Challenge, Global-Design-Project

#GDP060 – Case the Designer

This week I played along with the Global Design Project and their Case the Designer Challenge, Caseing Brian King’s card.

Here is the challenge card:
14054160_10155177520737222_4566461888469739046_n

I really liked the layout of Brian’s Card so that’s what I focused on when I created my card.

Here is my card:

lm16-ac001a

lm16-ac001b

My colour scheme used Wisteria Wonder, Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Paper and Whisper White.  I used the Perpetual Birthday Calendar and the Number of Years Photopolymer Stamp Set and the Large Number and  the Layering Circles Framelits Dies.

How I made this Card:

  • The card base is Thick Whisper White Cardstock A6 (210 x 148mm scored at 105mm);
  • Wisteria Wonder cut to 144 x 100mm;
  • I cut a circle into the centre of the Wisteria Wonder piece using the Circle frame lit that’s approx. 5.5cm;
  • Then I randomly stamped the hearts from the Perpetual Birthday Calendar in Wisteria Wonder and over the top in Whisper White Craft;
  • I stamped the Happy Anniversary from the Number of Years Stamp Set in Wisteria Wonder onto the Whisper White Piece that is 118 x 75mm;
  • I cut the numbers out with Large Numbers Framelits Dies out of the Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Paper, I adhered the numbers using Glue Dots onto that original circle that was cut out;
  • I used snail to attach the Wisteria Wonder piece, Stampin’ Dimensionals to adhere the Whisper White piece and finally the Wisteria Wonder circle adhered with snail.

I hope you enjoyed this quick and easy card.

Until next time… Happy Stamping,

Lauren
