Project Tutorial

Hello and welcome to my blog.

Today I have made a super elegant layered card using the Abstract Impressions Stamp Set.  Now the colours I have chosen to stamp with are:  Blushing Bride, Rococco Rose and Rich Razzleberry.  I two part stamped the images and fussy cut them out by hand. For the leaves I used Mint Macaron which compliments the card very well.

I used a whisper white card base and cut a piece of Petal Pink Card Stock using the scalloped edge die from All my Love Dies Set. 

My sentiment layer was made using the pretty label punch which I haven’t used in quite a while.

IMG_20190806_200551_wm.jpg

I finished off the card by wrapping a piece of whisper white bakers twine around the scalloped edge (hint – only apply tear and tape to the inner edge, leaving enough room to tuck the twine under :))  My leafs were punched out using the Leaf and the Sprig punches but you can use whichever you have to hand.

Measurements:

Card Base measures:  4 1/8″ x 5 3/4″
Scalloped die cut piece measures: 3/4″ x 5 3/4″

Products Used:

Now, although I fussy cut my images out, we do have matching dies (Springtime Impressions Dies) for this stamp set and I have linked these below also:

Annual Catalogue 2019-20, Die-cutting, Tutorial

Praiseworthy Prose Bundle – Handmade Card No 2!

Hello everyone,

Thanks for visiting my blog today – this is a follow on from yesterday’s card using the Praiseworthy Prose Bundle Stampset and Dies.  Yesterday I die cut out the thank you sentiment and used the the card I cut from and today, I’m utilising the other parts that were the actual die cut letters.

edf

 

And here is yesterdays card

edf

 

Basically, when using these dies you really do get two cards from one die cutting process.

I used the gorgeous combination of very vanilla cardstock, mossy meadow ink, mossy meadow vellum and the gorgeous Garden Lane DSP! I also used Very Vanilla Bakers Twine.

The hand lettered prose dies just make this card go WOW!   Now although I did CASE the catalogue in my original card, this one I did not but I did base it around the same colour schemes.

I absolutely adore the sentiments and printed image you get from this stamp set….. very modern so thank you Stampin’ Up! x

Look how easy it is to line up the letters on your die cutting machine…

My measurements and YouTube tutorial are linked further down the page.

… and here is the bundle just look at those fabulous sentiments.

My card consists of very vanilla, blackberry bliss and Basic grey colour combinations. These colours compliment each other so well!  So if you want to try this card, you only need the stampset and a few pieces of cardstock and co-ordinating ink 🙂 easy peasy !

I used a few punches in this project but if you don’t have these you can use your dies or even just fussy cut.

Annual Catalogue 2019-20, Die-cutting, Tutorial

Team Scrimpy You Tube Hop 15th June 2019

Welcome to a special blog today as I am taking part in my Mentor’s (scrimpingmommy’s) YouTube Blog Hop!

IMG_20190612_151858_wm.jpg

 

 

Top Footer

 

Welcome to this special blog episode and thank you for taking the time to visit my blog.

In this project make I am showcasing my favourite new Annual Catalogue DSP which is from the Bird Ballad Suite.  I hope to show you how many ways you can be creative with this paper.


 

edfI used a whisper white card base layered with a piece of petal pink cardstock. My top layer is one of the many gorgeous DSPs in the set. I love the rainbow type feel of this DSP and I especially love how all of the colours compliment each other.  This allows for easier co-ordination when making up the rest of your card, so many co-ordinating colours to choose from.

I cut out two circles using the largest circle die in the stitched shapes dies set, the first a piece of whisper white the second a piece of petal pink vellum from the perennial  essence suite.  I added a pre-cut image from another piece of the bird ballad DSP and adhered to the top

I also made a banner section using another piece of dsp and layered this with pool party cardstock.

For the sentiment I used Mossy Meadow and finally added some clear epoxy shapes to finish the front of the card.

For the inside I adhered a die cut circle in pool party, stamped with a further sentiment and added to fussy cut images to add to the pizzaz of this card! Beautiful!

Measurements:

Card Base 4.1 x 5.7″
Cardstock Layer 4 x 5.6″
DSP layer is 3.7″ x 5.5″

(All Layers are .1″ smaller on each edge than the prior layer)


Sentiment Layers – 1/2″ strip of DSP and .7″ of cardstock
I banner punched using my triple banner punch 🙂

Annual Catalogue 2019-20, Tutorial

Male Card Inspiration – Project Tutorial Sail Away

IMG_20190605_182552_wm.jpg

Well would you look at this handsome male themed card! I am so chuffed I managed this with no planning or practising! Go Me! And you can make this too. This is a z-fold card project. The main products used in this card is the Come Sail Away Suite which is just stunning.  The co-ordinating colours are really easy to work with as are the stamps in the Sailing Home Set! These have a rustic vintage type feel about them – remarkable.

 

Top Footer

Directions

I decided to use one of the sheets of DSP from the Come Sail Away Suite that I was unsure of – there was the first challenge. For the card base I used Basic Black Cardstock.

I took a piece of A4 cardstock and positioned it long edge to the top of my simply scoreboard. I scored at 3 and 6 inch markers.

Then, using my trimmer with the shortest edge to the top I cut off x2 1″ strips and put them aside. I then trimmed the remaining cardstock down to 6″

I folded and burnished all pieces of cardstock.  The two inch strips were flipped opposite to the scoring on the cardstock – please see my YouTube tutorial for next steps.

Layering the card with DSP was easy as was the simple stamping methods used on to some Grey Cardstock.  I fussy cut out the images and arranged them on the zfold card.

Just look at the detail in this card.

 

 

Products Used:

All of these products are made to co-ordinate with each other taking the stress out of planning your cardmaking! Makes sense doesn’t it.

Now there are other co-ordinating parts to this set which I have detailed below for your information.

Other Co-ordinating supplies:

Project Tutorial


Hello and Happy Friday! So glad it is almost the weekend – and I have Monday and Tuesday off of my part-time other job too! 

For this project I decided to Case the catalogue – what I mean is that I was unsure of what to make so I picked a random photo from the current catalogue and have tried to recreate it to my own standards.

 

Directions and Measurements:

The card base is an A4 sheet cut in half down the longest side (4.1″) and then scored at 5.7″  The top grey layer is 4.1″ x 4.3″. I left it shorter for a reason which you can see in the youtube tutorial near the end of this blog.

I used both my Tufted Embossing Folder and my stitched shapes framelit dies.  I’ll link all of the goods used below. I also layered some stamps up to create gorgeous floral images and leaves which I then fussy cut out and placed eloquently around my sentiment layer.

 

Products Used:

I used the lovely Abstract Impressions Stamp Set as well as some grey granite and merry merlot cardstock and ink. These colours compliment each other really well.

Annual Catalogue 2019-20, Die-cutting, Tutorial

Use the Scan n Cut to make this elegant Bird Ballad Handmade Card

Wow – this is such a beautiful card!

Project Tutorial


Hello and welcome to another project make this time incorporating the use of my Scan N Cut Machine to fussy cut some gorgeous DSP images.

This card was based on a Pool Party Card Base with a Whisper White Top Layer.

I used a separate piece of the DSP to die cut out the largest stitched circle from my Stitched Shapes Framelit Dies.  I then added a die cut of the same pool party cardstock using my starburst punch. Again, I layered this with whisper white which I stamped on using Calypso Coral (to compliment the DSP Circle die cut shape)

edf

I added a second sentiment area using a piece of cardstock and whisper white stamp layer and punched out banner shape using my triple banner punch – you can do this by hand easily enough if you don’t have the punch.

Measurements:

Card Base 4″ x 6″
Top Layer 3 7/8″ x 5 7/8″
Sentiment Layers – Largest Circle Shape Die, Starburst Punch Circle, 1 3/4″ Circle Punch
Banner – Bottom Layer 3/4″ thickness and Stamping Layer 1/2″ thickness

Quick Handmade Card (just for fun)

Thanks for stopping by my blog.  I have made a quick card using the Floral essence Stampset as well as very vanilla cardstock and a few of my stampin’ pad colours.

IMG_20190516_072757_wm.jpg

I added a layer on the front of this card with a die cut oval using my framelit dies.  I fussy cut a piece of the perennial essence DSP and added it to the front for some dimension.  I really love the sentiments in this stamp set.  I’m not too sure about the finished card but this is a new stampset that I am still getting to grips with 🙂

Links to all products are further down this page.

I hope you like todays tutorial and hope to see you back here soon!
