Handmade Cards, New Product Preview :)

Project Make – Piece of Cake – easy, fun and gorgeous cards

dav

 

Good morning and welcome to another project make blog and youtube video 🙂

I decided to use the Piece of Cake stamp set that is current AND carrying over into our new catalogue launching 4th June.

In these cards I am using the current in-colour 2018-2020 stampin pad colours as well as the A4 cardstock.  All of these cards measure 4″ x 4″ with the stamping layer of whisper white measuring 3 7/8″ x 3 7/8″  How pretty is this card

I used the cake stand stamp and then stamped two cake base images on top of each other, topped off with a stamped heart image, and fussy cut to make this beautiful image. I coloured the stamped images with some of my Stampin’ Write Alcohol Blend Pens.

dav

I added a couple of sentiments to the inside of the card too – I think the lovely lipstick card base is perfect for this card.

dav

Here is another example of a simple stamping card using different stamps from the set. I used Call Me Clover as a card base – what a fun card!

dav

These incolour packs are a fanstastic way of starting off your Stampin’ Up! craft supplies.  There are five colours:  Blueberry Bushell, Pineapple Punch, Call Me Clover, Grapefruit Grove and my favourite… Lovely Lipstick

This suite consists of the following elements:

  • Double sided DSP
  • Bird Ballad Laser-cut Cards with envelopes and Tin (look at those cards!)

Annual Catalogue 2019-20

Product Showcase – Carry over item “Beautiful You” Stampset :)

Hello and welcome to another blog post and youtube showcase video 🙂

edf

Today I am showcasing this gorgeous stampset named “Beautiful You” which is a current catalogue product (featured on page 132 of the annual catalogue, item number 143637 which I have linked below).

I really just wanted a little bit of relaxing craft time to myself last night so I had a play around with this set using various shades of my Stampin’ Blends Alcohol Markers and Stampin’ Pads.

For this gorgeous lovely lipstick themed card I used a mirror image stamping technique using memento black and coloured with the lovely lipstick blend markers.  I added three separate sentiments – just for something different, I think it turned out super girly 🙂

edf

Now this card is very similar the the first one but I stamped the image the same way round on this card.  I coloured with Mango Melody and added some stamped areas to two opposite corners to take away from the whiteness of the stamping layer.

edf

I used the lady with the hat for this gorgeous bit of crafty stamping using my new Bermuda Bay blends and ink pad.  Again I used a number of sentiments – I’m not sure what I will do with this stamped layer – I’ll probably make it into a card.

edf

For these little (yet to be finished tags) I mixed and matched the three colours used in the first three projects.  I love how they turned out…

If you click on the images below it will link you directly to my Stampin’ Up! shop page, should you fancy grabbing this (these) lovely product(s).  Why not check out my 5 minute video below to hear me talk about the product a little more.
