Still Scene Bundle

Hi everyone, 

It is that time of the year where we start thinking about Christmas Cards. In fact I’m probably a bit late.  However I conducted a class on Saturday using three Christmas stamps. 

One of those stamps where the Still Scene Bundle.  The stamps and dies consist of a variety of scene within a snow globe.  I just love snow globes. It seems that I love Snow Globe Scene cards also.  I was so happy with the class card that I made 10 using the different scenes available. 


This above card is the class card.  I used Shaded Spruce Cardstock as the card.  Wrapped in Plaid Designer Series Paper is the second layer.  This DSP is really lovely.   There is a little gold used on the DSP. Beautiful, absolutely beautiful DSP. 

I also used Whisper White Cardstock and Gold Foil Sheets. Blenders were used to colour the scene.  The scene was also touched up with the Glitter Pen.

The cards below are example of different scenes, different DSP and different Cardstock combinations. 



I hope you like them. 


All of the products using the first card can be purchased from Stampin Up. If you live in Australia and you would like to place an order over $250-00 (before shipping) you will receive 10% in Stampin Up Rewards.  Click here to place your order.

Royal Peacock Bundle

Hi everyone,

My mum recently turned 91.  She makes cards herself.  So I wanted to challenge myself and try something different for her.  

This is called a Diamond Fold Card. 




I love the new Designer Series Paper in the Nobel Peacock Suite.  Blueberry Bushel, Old Olive and Pretty Peacock. The colours are fantastic and I love the patterned papers with matching foil sheets. 
I used Whisper White Card stock with Blueberry DSP and Old Olive and Blueberry Foil Sheets. I also used Old Olive, Pretty Peacock Blender Pens and Gold Embossing Power for this card.  I am really happy with it. 






Mum was also very happy with it.  As expected she asked me to give her a copy of the pattern.  


Here is the instructions:

Commence with 11” x 5 1/2” Whisper White Card stock.
Score at 2 3/4”, 5 1/2” and 8 1/4”.
Make 2 3/4 “ point at both short ends.
Cut diagonally between 2 3/4” point and 2 3/4” score point. Do this on both sides and both ends. 
Cut 3 3/8” square, (green). Cut 2.
Cut  3 5/8” square, (blue). Cut 2.
Cut 5 1/2” x 2 1/2” Whisper White 
Cut 2 1/2” square then cut diagonally. (Patterned blue).

I saw something similar to this on Pintrest.  However I find most of the the patterns used slightly different Card stock to us in Australia.  So recently I have be converting them to Australian measurements.  

These products can be purchased from Stampin Up. If you would 
like to place an order over $250-00 (before shipping) you will 
receive 10% in Stampin Up Rewards.  Click here to place your order.

Lovely as a Tree

Hi everyone, 

Here is a quick and easy stamp for the man in your life.  However it is a retired stamp set.  Sometimes it is really good to bring out a favourite retired stamp set. I get so used to using the current stamp sets that is lovely to used an old favourite. 

I also find it hard to used these light sheets of Wood Texture difficult to use. 

I used Chocolate Chip and Crumb Cake Card stock and Chocolate Chip Stamp Pad.

Beautiful You


Hi everyone,

Several weeks ago, our daughter, who also makes cards, asked me about watercolour pencils and how to use them.  Oh dear, it sounds like she gave me a challenge.  How do I use them.  
My first port of call was Youtube.  You can find answers to most questions on Youtube.   So I found the following sites:

 





They both helped me. They both made the task of using watercolour pencils look so easy.  The card above is my example.  I tend to make something similar for my first card to learn the technique. When I am confident I play around a bit. 

I hope you like the card.  I enjoyed learning the technique.

Blessings.

We have just celebrated two 70th birthdays.  My husband is a triplet.  He and his sister are the only two that remain. 
 
Everyone had a great day.  Above are the cards that I made them. Similar to the birthday people, the cards are retired dies and retired designer series paper.
 
Enjoy your day,
