Class projects, Little Twinkle

August class projects

1564769503513.jpg

This month’s class projects were all star related! We used the Little Twinkle stamp set (which I LOVE!), along with Stargazing and Leave a Little Sparkle. I know I’m biased but I totally love all of them!

The unicorn is from Leave a Little Sparkle, and it’s white heat embossed onto shimmery white card. Then a watercolour wash of Pool Party over the top. We even added some Dazzling Diamonds glitter for the all-important sparkle!

Tip- use your silicone mat and add a little Tombow glue. Then take a sponge and dab it in, then dab it onto your card where you’d like your glitter to be. Sprinkle on the Dazzling Diamonds glitter and it will stick where you’ve added your glue!

The lucky stars card is from the Stargazing stamp set. Make a window using the stitched dies. We used the biggest square. Turn to the inside and pop tear and tape all around the edge. Now stamp the sentiment using Stazon, onto a piece of window sheet. Set aside to dry. Punch out stars from the matching punch from glimmer paper. Now adhere window sheet to inside your card onto the tear and tape. You have created your window!

Then I wanted to add our stars to make a kind of shaker card but not as thick if that makes sense. So instead of using foam strips or dimensionals, I just used more tear and tape all around edge again, onto piece we’ve just stuck down. Then you need to ‘sandwich’ the stars you’ve punched out in between the window and a piece of whisper white. Before adhering the whisper white, add a little Dazzling Diamonds glitter. Once adhered, you’ve made a little type of shaker card. It won’t move too much, which I like!

The last card is heat embossed with silver which looks stunning 💙 The two hearts along with the little stars just makes it💙 The sentiment is cut by hand and added to a piece of Pool Party cardstock which is die cut using the stitched rectangle dies. I added some silver metallic thread before popping up on dimensionals.

Well I hope I’ve inspired you today and you will make some star-tastic cards!!

Birthday, Class projects, Free as a Bird

July class projects- Free as a bird

Hey everyone. Here are my projects that we made in this month’s classes. 1562923336978.jpg

I am completely besotted with these little birdies 😍

First we made a simple version. A base of Coastal Cabana which we stamped the leaves randomly around. Then we stamped the birds onto whisper white, cut using the biggest rectangle, from the stitched rectangle dies set. This is part of a bundle, so when you purchase both the bird stamp set and the stitched rectangle dies you save 10%! Fabulous! 😉👍 Head over to my online store here

Colour them using the blends, choosing whatever colour you’d like. Of course I went for seaside spray!

Then stamp a few of the little flower from the set, colour and cut out, then pop up on a dimensional. I then stamped my sentiment and cut out, and using the same blend as the flowers, I coloured over, and popped up with a dimensional.

A few rhinestones in the centre of the flowers finished this card off nicely.

The next thing we did was the candle. We stamped on tissue paper and coloured using blends. Cut out around your image so there’s no sharp corners.  Place onto your candle and then use greaseproof paper to wrap around and grab hold at the back. Don’t burn your fingers!! Use your heat tool to gently heat all over until it looks wet. Gently peel the greaseproof paper away, and voilà a gorgeous candle. Will you give it away or keep it though?!!

The last card was a stepped up version. We used the fabulous new brick and mortar 3D embossing folder.(I LOVE THIS SO MUCH!!) It gives a wonderful texture, but I added extra by brayering on some grey granite ink to the folder before running through the big shot. This gives even more depth, …. and is like magic!

Glue this onto a layer of grey and then glue to your base card. As this was a stepped up version we added in 2 of the stitched rectangle die cuts, one slightly larger vellum behind a whisper white one. A hint of the new ribbon was attached with tear and tape, and then the two rectangle die cuts were glued on top. The birds were stamped and, again coloured using blends, but this time cut out and then popped up with dimensionals. 1562923695646

There was the option of adding some leaves and/or more flowers if they wanted, and these were a mixture of glued on or popped up on a dimensional. Then a choice of sentiment, or leaving blank.  A little bow from linen thread was added with a glue dot, and a few rhinestones completed the card. I must say I do love this card and I will definitely be making more!

Don’t forget, all the products I used to create these are available to purchase from my online store, just head over… I’d love to be your demonstrator!😊

Hope I’ve inspired you today, do let me know if you recreate anything you have seen!

Magnolia, Simple stamping, Thank you

Blue magnolia

Hey everyone. So I had to do it. I just HAD to create a blue version!

The magnolia stamp set is gorgeous, but as you know I love blue, I thought I’d give it a go in blue! I really love the outcome and actually made 2😂

1561130890394

The first card I made by stamping in Balmy Blue onto whisper white cardstock. I then coloured using blends. I used Balmy Blue for the flower and old olive for the leaves, leaving a tiny amount of white which I blended out. This gives the effect of highlights. I then added the sentiment ‘thanks’ which I heat embossed in white, over a ‘background’ of Balmy Blue (scribbled with a blend!!) on some whisper white- very complicated lol😉 I put a piece of ribbon behind and added a little bow made from twine. A few sequins finished it off😊

The second card is a great example of simple stamping! I stamped in Balmy Blue -both the magnolia and the sentiment- onto whisper white, which I mounted onto a Balmy Blue card base. I then took my light Balmy Blue Stampin’ blend and coloured all around the outside edge of the image. I love the simplicity of this card and it’s sooo easy!!

I hope you like my blue cards (as much as I do!😉)

Magnolia

More magnolia!

Hey everyone. I’ve been having a great time with the magnolia suite. I’ve created a few here using the DSP and the stamp set. I also used the little cork embellishments, which I ‘coloured’ with a chalk marker, and then blends.

1561132067630.jpg

I did a bit of fussy cutting of the little magnolias. The flowers on the DSP are truly stunning and make such amazing features!

1561131016346

With this pretty pink card I used the sentiment from Lovely Flowers along with a few die cuts from the coordinating dies. I love how the magnolia can compliment so many other stamp sets. Also love how you could just use the DSP and then use whatever stamp sets you already have, and make some gorgeously magnolia cards, without necessarily having the stamp set!! Nifty👍😊

Hope I’ve inspired you today. Don’t forget to head to my online store to purchase any of the products I’ve used in my projects Here

Class projects, kit, Notes of Kindness

June class projects

Hi everyone. Thought I’d share the projects we made at class this month.

1560081136564.jpg

I’d been asked to do a masculine card so I used a similar idea to the thanks card in my previous post. -I’d also been told someone hadn’t done heat embossing so I knew I had to rectify that!! Cue lots of embossing!!-

My attendees could choose the sentiment father’s Day or birthday. We heat embossed this with white embossing powder onto black card- I love this effect so much! Everyone agreed! It really makes the words pop!

The happy die was from the ‘well written’ set and the sentiments were from the matching stamp set ‘well said’. These are such useful sets I use them so much! The background was from the All-inclusive kit ‘notes of kindness’. Which lead us into the other card, which was one of the kit cards! (Nice link there😉!)

We also did a bit of heat embossing with silver, using the little crosses stamp from the kit. 

The kit is so gorgeous and I just love how you can re-use all the stamps once you’ve made up all the cards! Everyone got to choose one of the cards from the kit. This meant not everyone had the same card, which was nice. See my previous post to see more on the kit.

We also made a cute little box with a magnetic closure which had a box of mints in. Again I tried to do a more masculine theme on this and used the little crosses stamp from the kit again. This was heat embossed with silver which again looks stunning on the black card.

kit, Notes of Kindness

I love a kit!!

Hey everyone. As you are probably aware, I do love a kit! You get stunning cards already planned out for you-all you have to do is put them together! Then once you’ve made them all, you are left with a gorgeous stamp set that you can re-use and get creative with!

I like to show you different ways you can use the stamp set, and just by using these stamps, with a few extras, you can make even more beautiful cards- what’s not to love??!!

Today’s kit is from the Notes of Kindness All-inclusive kit. It makes 20 cards with matching envelopes (5 each of 4 designs) and like I say once you’ve made all the cards you are still left with the stamp set to make your own designs! The kit costs £33 and is carrying over to the new catalogue- yippee! 🤩 Order number 148266 head over to my online store  now to get yours!

IMG_20190515_175757.jpg

Here are the cards you can make with the kit, you get 5 each of the 4 designs. Absolutely gorgeous 💙

Then once I’d made up all my cards I got to play with the stamp set!!

1559206287562.jpg

So this card was made with a watercolour wash of Mango melody and Daffodil Delight onto watercolour paper. Once dry I flicked some ink from my Mango melody marker, and to add a little something extra, I flicked some Champagne shimmer paint on using a little paintbrush. Then I used the little crosses stamp before adding my sentiment, which I stamped in Mango melody onto a rectangle stitched die.

1559205929281.jpg

 

The next one I used the same sentiment -Thanks- and this time I used Grey Granite. As a background I used the ‘swoosh’ line repeatedly across the whisper white layer in first and second generation. (This means inking and stamping=first generation, then stamping again without re-inking=second generation) I used a piece from my Twinkle Twinkle DSP (retiring so go get it now! 146284) and then added velum which I cut with a rectangle stitched die, before popping up my sentiment on with dimensionals. To finish I flicked some Champagne shimmer paint on using a little paintbrush, and added some sequins.

The next two cards are using the You’re so Kind sentiment. I created the background using the ‘swoosh’ line again.

1559206140175.jpg

I used the same sentiment for this card, but created a background using the ‘sprig’ stamp, and went around in a sort of circle shape. I used Gorgeous Grape, Coastal Cabana, Granny Apple Green and Pacific Point. The sentiment was stamped in Flirty flamingo to match the base card. A few rhinestones were added to finish it off.

1559206020602

This card was made with Gorgeous Grape. I used a piece of cardstock to make a banner piece. Before gluing down I used the crosses stamp to stamp down the middle, peeking out from behind the cardstock. I used the ‘swoosh’ line again on the card to create some texture. I stamped the little Thank You stamp in Gorgeous Grape and I cut it in half and popped up with dimensionals onto a circle of whisper white, which I layered onto Gorgeous Grape and then some rose glimmer paper cut with the starburst punch. A few rhinestones completed my card.

1559206628171.jpg

To finish off I just made some super simple 3×3 cards, using a little Twinkle Twinkle DSP.

IMG_20190515_194632.jpg

On this one I created the background with the ‘swoosh’ line again, but using different colours- Soft Sea Foam, Balmy Blue, Petal pink and Pool party.

SUCH easy little cards to make but look so great! I hope you agree😊

Well I hope you’ve enjoyed my creations today, and I’ve inspired you to get creative. If you haven’t got this kit yet, I really recommend it as the stamps are so gorgeous and you can create such a lot with them. As always,  I’d love to be your demonstrator so head to my store now to get your products.

Celebrate

Celebrate the retiring products!

Hey everyone. So as the new catalogue is approaching, it’s time to get excited for all new products 🤩, but also a time to say farewell to some retiring ones😥

I have been showing some love to a few of the retiring products! I really love the celebrate die from the Amazing You die set. I have used this in a few different ways to show how you can use this one die, but in so many ways. 1559058392401.jpg

First up I die cut the word from whisper white and used my blends to colour from Balmy Blue, to Pool party, to Soft Sea Foam. I had a Pool party base with a layer of whisper white which I stamped lots of the little star, from Little Twinkle set ( not retiring- YAY!!!) using the same three colours as before. To this I used a little DSP from the Twinkle Twinkle DSP, before adding my die cut Celebrate. I finished with a bow made from the Pool party, silver and white twine from the Little Twinkle suite- but I removed the pool party colour- I am sooooo going to miss this twine😥 I love how this card looks💙

1559058984829.jpg

For my second card I have die cut the Celebrate word again from whisper white but I then sponged on some Champagne shimmer paint. This gives it such a shimmery shine I just adore it!💙 For the background I used the Swirly Frames set inking up once, then stamping 4 times, achieving a random faded pattern. I then used the little star from before and inked in Balmy Blue, and a few with the shimmer paint. I added some silver metallic twine and then my Celebrate word. To finish I added some adhesive stars. You cannot beat these!! 🤩 I use them all the time! 1559059262792.jpg

The last card I used different colours to my usual. I tried to make a more masculine one? What do you think? I die cut from black and added a black mat behind my whisper white. I used some of the wood texture DSP along the centre and also a thin line of whisper white and silver foil, before adhering my Celebrate word. I used the gorgeous stamp set Bubble Over to make some bottles with Grey Granite, and silver foil lids. The background bubbles are also from Bubble Over. Such a great set I will be sorry to see it go😥

Hope you like what I have created and if you haven’t got any of these products, head over to my online store  as they are retiring very soon!!!
