  • Cut a piece of Petal Pink Cardstock to 4″ squared and apply to the back of the card to hide the reverse images showing through the acetate.
  • Using your versamark ink and piece of cake stampset – stamp your images separately on to whisper white card stock – making sure your punch is able to reach your image
  • Warm up your heat gun
  • Apply silver emboss powder and heat set
  • Colour images with petal poirette stampin blend marker
  • Punch out images and fussy cut out your sentiment.
  • Cut a further piece of DSP measuring 1″ x 4″ and apply to bottom part of the front of your card.

  • Layer up your sentiment with petal pink card stock and fussy cut out
  • Adhere embossed images to card front – I placed mine to the right side.

10 Minute Stampin’Up! Card Tutorial – Needle and Thread Set

Tonight I bring you this super cute yet elegant Needle and Thread Co-ordinating Suite housed on a cute 4″ x 4″ card in Highland Heather 🙂  I had planned this card out in my head initially but as I was making it, my plans went in the opposite direction – but that’s the fun of crafting isn’t it? 🙂 I’m happy with the outcome..  A simple but elegant way to say “Thank you”.

Watch my YouTube Tutorial linked below for step by step tuition and if you make this card, please do share with me on any of my social media pages – let’s get crafty together!

Ten Minute needle and thread card.jpg

Instructions

  • Cut Highland Heather card stock down to 4 x 4 inches to create your card base
  • Cut DSP layer down to 3 7/8″ x 3 7/8″ and adhere to card base
  • Cut another piece from the Highland Heather measuring 1.5 x 4 inches and punch end with Triple Banner Punch (or fussy cut it yourself if you do not have this punch)
  • Punch out the Starburst Shape from the same DSP and add a layer of Highland Heather cardstock using the 2″ circle punch
  • Stamp sentiment onto whisper white card stock then punch out with your 1 3/4″ Circle Punch. I used the cute flower trio stamp but you can use a sentiment or image of your choice – adhere to circle layered section
  • Cut and adhere with glue, some whisper white baker’s twine to centre of banner layer before adhering circle section on top with dimentionals
  • Stamp your greeting sentiment onto whisper white cardstock and punch out (or fussy cut) using the everyday label punch. Adhere this to the same DSP and fussy cut around to give it 1/8″ border.
  • Do the same again with this piece but onto a piece of Highland Heather and fussy cut then adhere to lower section of banner piece

Thank you lovely…friend #Spring/Summer Project Make – Mini Gate-fold Card

photocollage_201911020449624

Tonight I bring you the……. Thank you lovely…friend #Spring/Summer Project Make – Mini Gate-fold Card. I really enjoyed making this “off the cuff” as it wasn’t rehearsed so I do apologise for the 18minute video…

I absolutely love the Needle and Nook DSP especially this Balmy Blue Coloured Design.  It co-ordinates fantastically with the Night of Navy Cardstock and Stampin Ink.  I also made use of my Everyday Label Punch, my Classic Label Punch and my Banner Triple Punch 🙂  I finished off the card with a fantastic sentiment (or three) from both the Thankful Thoughts Stamp Set and the Stitched All Around Stamp Set – not to mention the basic rhinestone jewels!

I just love how the products from various catalogues, sale-a-brations, and occasions catalogues can all be used together… this makes life so much easier for us crafters.  Now, whether you are a beginner, intermediate or avid crafter, you too could make this card. Watch my YouTubeTutorial below for some inspiration… and if you would like any of these products, as always, direct links to them are illustrated below.

Thanks and Happy Crafting! Love T x

  • DSP layer measures for inside card measures appx 3 7/8″ x 3 7/8″ and adhere to inside of card  (you may have to trim it a little further)
  • IF YOU USE NIGHT OF NAVY AS CARD BASE INSTEAD OF WHITE YOU WON’T NEED TO DO THIS STEP – Cut two pieces of  night of navy cardstock down to 2″ x  4″ and adhere to fronts of card.  Layer both fronts with the DSP which measures 1 7/8″ x  1 7/8″
  • Using the reverse side of the DSP cut a section down to 2″ x 4″ and punch with banner punch.Adhere this layer to a piece of Night of Navy cardstock and fussy cut around making sure you leave a quarter inch layer.
  • Stamp out “Thank You” and underneath it “lovely”
