Year of Cheer Shaker Card

Sorry I have been away from the blog for a week, life just seemed to get into way this last week. I am now back with a metallic bang and have been playing with lots of Mixed Metallics so expect to see a few cards featuring this coming soon. I am participating the the Stampin' Dreams - Something Different Blog Hop and I have created shaker card for you featuring the Year of Cheer Speciality Paper from the  Stampin' Up! 2017 Holiday Catalogue.


I started this card by deciding to make a congratulations card and then choosing my favourite paper from the Year of Cheer Speciality Paper which features both Copper and Champagne Foil. Using a circle die from the Layering Circle Framelits in the Big Shot creating the window for the shaker. I added a Window Sheet behind the circle added Foam Adhesive Strips around the outside of the circle on the window sheet so the sequins can move. I filled the shaker with some of our Metallic Sequin Assortment and closed it with a piece of Champagne Foil paper. I added further adhesive strips to the back of the card above and below the shaker to make it all even. To finish the front of the card I cut the congrats word die from the Sunshine Wishes Thinlits in the Big Shot using the precision plate so you don't get embossed dots on the word from the die and Silver heat embossed a coordinating sentiment from the matching Sunshine Sayings stamp set onto Basic Black card stock flagging the ends using the Triple Banner Punch adhering both sentiments to the card front. Finally I adhered the card front to a Basic Black card base.



Please make sure to see what everyone else has been too

Watercolour Christmas with Year of Cheer Suite Christmas Card

I may have had a little too much fun mixing metallics with all the beautiful products from the Stampin' Up! 2017 Holiday Catalogue, using the Year of Cheer Suite which is full of foil and shine.


The Year of Cheer Speciality Paper is so beautiful with lots of foil and I started my card with a piece of the burst pattern. I wrapped it with 3 of the matching Year of Cheer foil Washi Tape to ground the focal embellishment. I started that embellishment with the Oh Joy sentiment from Watercolor Christmas stamp set which I Gold Heat Embossed on Whisper White Card Stock and punched out using the Everyday Label Punch. I matted this with a strip of our NEW Champagne Foil paper which has the most beautiful pink hue to it, I flagged the ends using the Triple Banner Punch. i finished the embellishment stack by using the Foil Snowflakes as a base, which I prefer to call Dollies as we don't have snowy winter or christmas where I live in Australia. I matted the card front to a piece of Smokey Slate card stock then a Thick Whisper White card base to finish the card.

Painted Harvest Stamp Set Kindness Card

So after making my wreath card using the Painted harvest stamped set from Stampin' Up!, I have finally made this card they way that stamp was indeed to be used to make a watercolored sunflower card. As a teenager I always bought a bunch of sunflowers at the shops, so this stamp set really brings back memories. 

\

I started by stamping the flower centres in Soft Suede ink as this makes it easier to line up the flower layers onto a piece of Very Vanilla card stock. Next I stamped the most solid flower in So Saffron twice twisting the stamp on the second stamping to make the flower look fuller.  For the second flower layer I stamped in PeekaBoo Peach ink. I added the detailed leaves stamps in Pear Pizza and Old Olive inks. To finish off the stamping I added the sentiment also from Painted Harvest stamp set in Soft side ink as well as the flower centre details. I wrapped some Linen Thread around the card front which I layered on vellum and finally onto a Soft Suede card front.

Watercolour Christmas Project Kit Christmas Cards

On Instagram recently I shared that I made the Watercolor Christmas Project Kit from Stampin' Up! in a few hours at a recently at a hospital visit. These really came together so easily and I needed no space at all. I only had a hospital table to use which is TINY!!


It really was as easy as using the coordinating Watercolour Christmas stamp set with our Archival Basic Black ink to stamp the sentiments on the die cut pieces, cutting the Mini sequin trim into the correct sizes and adhering them together. Making them certainly passes the time during my hospital appointment and now I have 20 cards ready to send out for Christmas, including Gold Foil lined envelopes!!!!

Beautiful Bouquet, Floral Phrases and Detailed Floral Thinlits Wedding Card

I attended a beautiful wedding on the weekend of my Cousin on the weekend and I has the opportunity to make a beautiful and flowery card which is quite unlike me. but I really did enjoy creating this card and trying a few new things.


I started this card by using the Detailed Floral Thinlits dies with Pink Pirouette card stock in the Big Shot the create the floral lace background. Next I did my stamping a piece of vellum the same size as the lace piece and stamped the some of the florals from Beautiful Bouquet, Floral Phrases and Flower Shop in Lemon Lime Twist, Berry Burst, Blushing Bride and Whisper White inks. I have mostly stamped off the images accept the white to create 2 clusters. I added the sentiment from the Beautiful Bouquet stamp set in Archival Basic Grey ink. I attached lace piece to a Shimmery White card base and attached the vellum using one small spots of glue behind the flowers so you can't see it.


To finish the card I stamped the inside of the card using the same flowers and sentiment from the Floral Phrases stamp set.

I am sharing a Christmas card that I made using the Season Of Christmas stamp set which is a 2 step stamping set from Stampin' Up! that creates this beautiful tree along with some lovely sentiments that I have not used here on this card but will hard with you in future projects.

I added the trunk in Soft Suede ink. Using Versamark ink I stamped the baubles on the tree, coated them in Gold Embossing Power and melted using our Heat Tool. I added the the star to the top of tree from the same stamp set in Crushed Curry ink. I added the Oh Joy sentiment from the Watercolor Christmas stamp set in Cherry Cobbler ink. I matted the piece into some of the Painted Autumn paper and finally Cherry Cobbler card stock before adding it to a Thick Very Vanilla card base
