Hearts And Flowers

Hello and Welcome to another Wednesday Wonders.

Having a play with some new products in the Occasions Catalogue.

How pretty is this card?!
Powder Pink
Heart cut with the new Be Mine Framelits. (such a great selection of hearts to choose from).



New Lace Embossing Folder is so pretty and delicate.
The words are from the Well Said Stamp Set.
Do you like how I have stamped them, cut them up and placed them down the heart instead of going across in a straight line?
This is a good tip for those times when your sentiments just don't fit the way you want them too. Try cutting them up and positioning them differently. 


 Inside using some more of the All My Love designer paper (the outside scalloped edge of my heart is dsp too.)


Happy Valentines Day... to all my crafting friends...sending you some love.

Wednesday Wonder.... Just a bit late!!

Greetings and sorry this post isn't on Wednesday.
I have been away and not near a computer so unable to post.


Sorry too (boy am I apologising a lot today!) for the terrible photo, but this is all I could muster up in a hurry.

This is a calendar Easel Card we made in class recently.

Super easy to make.




The Easel Card is 15cm x 10.5cm.
The Stand which you attach to both ends is 9cm x 10.5cm.
Score the stand along the 9cm edge at 1.5cm, 4.5cm, 7.5cm.
You will have a 1.5cm scored edge at both ends. Fold these up (valley fold) and attach to the ends of your Easel Card (back and front).
The middle score is a Mountain fold as shown in the photo below.
This allows the calendar to fold up and be posted if you wish.


Then decorate the front of your Easel Card with designer paper, stamps and or…

Bloom by Bloom simple stamping

Hello and Happy Wednesday Wonder,

Recently I was asked about stamping directly onto designer paper and I thought the Gingham Gala dsp would be perfect to highlight this technique.

Here is a little notecard I made.
I loved how it turned out so much I ended up making it in several of the gingham gala colours. But the yellow was my favourite.

Using Blueberry Bushel and Call Me Clover ink and the Bloom by Bloom stamp set.
Multiple stamping and stamping off to get lighter images in the same colour.


Then I took the idea a step further and made a simple Spotlight Card.
Here I stamped the flower directly onto the Gingham Gala and then using one of the new Rectangle Framelits I cut out part of the image.
I then layered it back onto the card but with a matt 0.3cm larger than the cut out piece.
This gives a nice little frame and "spotlights" the image.


I also used some of the new Gingham Gala adhesi…

Bloom Centre Step Card

Happy Wednesday Wonders!

How about a Centre Step Card using Bloom by Bloom stamp set and those awesome little punches on page 25 of the Occasions Catalogue?!


Did you know the punches actually match some of the designer paper Happiness Blooms?
All those little flowers on my card were just punched straight from the designer paper!!
How cute!
How easy!

have to show you the back of the card because that is where you can write your message.

I love the Happiness Blooms paper. Reminds me of the patterns and colours popular when I was little.
Bold and Bright and a little bit Retro don't you think?




A little bit like this Crepe Myrtle (Pride of India) tree.  Had one like this growing outside my bedroom window when I was a girl. Ahhh....memories...



Have a great week and I will catch you up again next Wednesday... for another Wednesday…

Bloom by Bloom and Gingham

Happy Wednesday Crafting Friends,

I am still having way too much fun with the Gingham Gala Suite and this week I have paired it with Bloom by Bloom Stamp Set.

In Highland Heather and Lemon Lime Twist.

 Look at all those gorgeous Gingham Gala Adhesive Backed Sequins! Gorgeous!

And another in Daffodil Delight and Call me Clover .
I fussy cut the flowers and stems and popped the flowers up on dimensionals.
Quick Tip: (remember to leave a small amount of 'white space' around the images you are cutting out. This helps to make them stand out from the background)
 A lovely pearlised doily to centre my flowers and butterfly, without hiding the beautiful gingham designer paper underneath.


Have a great day. See you next Wednesday.

Gala Gingham and Butterflies

HAPPY NEW YEAR FRIENDS!
and welcome to 2019 at my craft table.

The 2019 Occasions Catalogue and Saleabration have begun and my oh my!....
so many beautiful products.

But you have to start somewhere don't you? and my starting point just had to be with the Gingham Gala Suite p.35.
I loved everything on this page...and yes just had to have it all.

This card features nearly all the colours in the gingham (and I do love them all!).




Matched the butterflies with the gingham gala adhesive backed sequins.

Can you see the little cross stitching design around the edges? that is a framelit from the the Stitched Label Framelits set. I also ran the Balmy Blue card through the Bigshot with the Subtles embossing folder. Hard to see I know but it just softens any imperfections in the card stock made by the framelits.

Happy New Year to You All!!! Hope you had a lovely Christmas.
I am starting off the New Year and the 2019 Occasions Catalogue which starts tomorrow. Thought you might be 'eager beaver' ready to start checking out some of the new things coming.
Firstly though I thought you may like to see a piece of Home Decor I made. This is a Chalkboard Heart I bought at a discount store and decorated with Stampin Up products as a gift for my downlines for Christmas.

It has the Stampin Up Statement of the Heart which is a retired stamp.
I used Silver, black and white and a little touch of Flirty Flamingo pink as I wanted it to be fairly neutral.
There is also one little item on this heart that is from the new 2019 Occasions Catalogue...can you see   it????


...It is the little butterf…
