A Twisted Christmas Card

This is what we also made at my card class the other week. This card is perfect for when you would like to give someone a voucher as there is a pocket inside to hold it and still room on the left hand side to write your message.

Here are two samples of the card design we made. 

The card on the left uses Cherry Cobbler, and the other card uses Gumball Green.  Both feature different sheets of Be of Good Cheer DSP.  The ornaments punched and then have been dry embossed with the Petals-a-plenty embossing folder to give some texture to them and the slightly spondged around the edges.  This is a different way to use your punch without having to stamp an image first. 

Here is the inside of the card and you can see the pocket, perfect for a voucher.

Stamps: Come to Bethlehem (sentiment) 
Cardstock: Gumball Green, Cherry Cobbler, Very Vanilla
Ink: Gumball Green, Cherry Cobbler
DSP: Be of Good Cheer
Other:  Ornament punch, Cherry Cobbler Twine, Petal-a-Plenty Embossing Folder, Big Shot

Come back tomorrow and I will show you a birthday card using the same card design.

The new Stampin' Trimmer is here!

Introducing the new and improved Stampin’ Trimmer! Although paper trimmers are a common crafting tool, this trimmer was designed exclusively by paper crafters for paper crafters—and because it was made by Stampin’ Up!, you know it’s a cut above the rest!

Features of the All-New Stampin’ Trimmer
  • An extra-wide 15.9 cm cutting base and an extended 39 cm ruler
    • The extra-wide cutting base provides a large work area and is marked in 4 mm increments, allowing for small measurements.
    • The right-side grid helps you measure and cut very thin strips.
    • The extended cutting arm has a stabilizing leg to provide a sturdy and steady cutting surface for longer cuts. 
    • When fully extended, the extended cutting arm sits flush with the trimmer base, providing more accurate and consistent measurements across the entire surface.
    • All rulers and measurements on the base are printed under a plastic cover so your measurements won’t wear off.
    • The base has nonskid feet, which keeps the Stampin’ Trimmer securely in place on your work area.
  • A full 30.5 cm (12") cutting and scoring track
    • The extra-long cutting track has space at the top and bottom so you don’t have to take the cutting and scoring blades out when you’re not using them. 
    • The track gives you enough space to cut or score a full 30.5 cm (12") without having to remove or switch out handles. 
    • The cutting track locks in place for secure storage or transport. 
    • The track includes an insertion point for cutting and scoring blade handles so you can easily insert handles into the cutting track.
  • Specially designed handles and cutting track to ensure straight cuts
    • The hook on the scoring and cutting blade handles keeps the handles stable so the cuts are as straight as possible.
    • Handles come in two colours: dark for cutting, light for scoring. 
    • The precision tip on the cutting blade allows you to pinpoint precisely where you’re cutting.
    • The point on the side of each handle shows you where the blade will cut, making it easy to see exactly where your cuts and scores will begin.
  • Storage compartment under base
    • The storage compartment holds scoring and cutting tools such as a Bone Folder, Simply Scored Stylus, extra scoring and cutting blades and even business cards. 
    • Separate compartments within the storage compartment keep your tools organised, and the clear cover makes it easy to see what you’ve stored.
  • Product details: item 129722; $59.95
I am placing an order this week, so if you would like to order this or something else, please contact me.  Order and payment needs to be into me by 8pm Wednesday 5th December please.  

Enjoy the rest of your weekend.

Simple but impressive Christmas gifts

Last weekend I had my final class for the year.  The ideas of these creations are not mine.  I was inspired by Jacque from Stamp Happy and what they made at the Hamilton Extravaganza weekend earlier this month.  My class had lots of fun and this is what we created.

We used the Petite Pockets die for the coffee sachet holder and the Labels Collection Framelit dies for the biscuit bag toppers.  To decorate and embellish both, we used the Scentsational Season stamps and dies and Be of Good Cheer DSP.  

The biscuits inside the bags also feature the designs from some of the Sweet Pressed Cookie Stamps - A great Christmas gift.

We also made a twisted card, perfect for a voucher. I will show you that one soon too.

Thanks for stopping by.

Pink, purple and cupcakes

Pink, purple and cupcakes is a great combination for a girl's card.  I made this card for my niece's 6th birthday.  This is a similar style layout to the card I made a couple of weeks ago with the ducks on it, but it looks quite different with a different image and colour combination.

This card features a trick I have learnt from Dawn T.  She taught me to sponge white paper with ink to get the right colour to match.  Usually this isn't an issue when using Stampin' Up products as the card, inks and markers match each other perfectly, but it is a good trick to know if you run out of matching card.  I didn't have any pink card in the colour I wanted, nor did I have the ink pad, but I did have the pink marker, so I coloured a strip of white paper in ink, let it dry and then punched it with the scalloped trim border punch.  Also, one of the cupcakes didn't stamp too well, so rather than having to stamp all three again, I stamped another one on a blank piece of paper, coloured it, fussy cut it and mounted it over the top with dimensionals and it looks like it was always meant to be like that and adding dimension to the card too.

Stamps: Easy Events
Cardstock: Whisper white, 
DSP: In colours 2011-2013 - Wisteria Wonder
Other: Stampin' Up markers, dimensionals, scalloped trim border punch

Thanks for dropping by and for your comments.

Pyramid Christmas Tree Card

This was the other card we made at my card class last Sunday afternoon.

The pyramid Christmas tree card can be used as a card, or as a Christmas decoration with a safety tealight underneath which shines through the holes making twinkly fairy lights when it isn't so light. This card was inspired and CASED from Heather Stewart.

Below is a photo of it taken at night with the tealight.   Not the greatest photo, but it gives you some idea of how it can look.

Cardstock: Gumball Green, Very Vanilla
Ink: Gumball Green, Cherry Cobbler (marker pen)
Other: Simple Scored Scoring Tool, Petal-a-Plenty Embossing Folder, Star punch (Merry Minis Punch Pack) Piercing mat, piercing tool, Big Shot

Thanks for stopping by.

Delightful Ornaments

In a couple of weeks I will be doing a workshop with some elderly people and so I thought we would make a small Christmas card (3 1/2" x 3 1/2") using the new ornament stamp set and punch I bought recently.  I have made a few different ones to see what I like the best.

Here are all three:

Stamps: Delightful Decorations, Come to Bethlehem
Ink: Cherry Cobbler, Gumball Green
Cardstock: Whisper White, Very Vanilla, Crumb Cake, Cherry Cobbler
Punches: Ornament
Other: Markers, Lacy Brocade Embossing Folder, Dimensionals

Here they are in more detail.

First card:
This first one uses very vanilla cardstock, although it is probably hard to tell in the photo.  This is probably my personal favourite as I think it is a bit more elegant with just the very vanilla and cherry cobbler and without the gumball green.

Second card:
With this card I thougth I would include two different colours of ornaments and use whisper white card.

Third card: 
This final card also uses whisper white and has the ornaments the opposite way around.  I have also added the the string to hang the ornament from with matching markers.  I wonder if it spoils it a bit.  I think adding some Baker's Twine would be good, but I don't have it in gumball green and it would be a bit fiddle to do with the elderly group, but probably effective.  I will have to try that one too sometime.

Which one is your favourite?

Three Little Ducks

This is a made a card for a little girl who has just turned one.

I used the cute duck stamp from the Easy Events set.  I didn't want the sentiment below the image, so I used my basic black marker to ink the image part of the stamp and then stamped it.  I did it three times to have them swimming in a row.  I was trying to line them up, but it didn't quite work.  In the end I think it looks quite effect like this.  I also coloured them with markers.  I love the way the embossed background gives texture to a card.  I would really have liked to include the number 1 on this card to show that it was for a 1st birthday, but I didn't have anything I could use.  Memorable Moments would be perfect for this and is on my wish list.

Stamps: Easy Events, Itty Bitty Banners
Ink: Lucky Limeade 
Markers: Basic Black, Wisteria Wonder, Daffodil Delight, Pretty In Pink
Card stock: Wisteria Wonder, Whisper White
DSP: Lucky Limeade from In colours 2011-2013 DSP
Other: Petals a Plenty Embossing Folder, Bitty Banners Framelits, Scalloped Edge Punch

Framelit Shaped Card

Today I held my montly card class and we made a shaped card using the Framelit Dies.  We did paper piercing around the edge and used a marker pen to draw on the "stitches". I think everyone enjoyed making the card and they really liked the new core'dinations paper which we embossed with the woodgrain embossing folder and then sanded. My card featured a bird, others in the class prefereed to have owls.  All the cards were all a little different and everyone was pleased with their efforts.
