Christmas

Feels like frost

This is a great Idea to show off the new Christmas catalogue enjoy x welcome to our blog hop

Feels like frost these papers are stunning there is no other way to describe them 30 papers and they are all double sided they certainly have the wow factor this was a very simple card using whisper white to create a 6×6 blank  for my base then trimmed the paper down to fit on this and simply added  a little  shimmery  crystal effects and some ice stampin glitter. I used the stamp set Merry Moose stamped him  with soft suede and crumb cake  punched him out and punched a pretty label for my sentiment and stamped with blushing bride ink  and put onto some whisper white ribbon .

I hope you enjoyed reading this and please feel free to copy x thanks for popping by x

valentines

Hello everyone, I am so sorry for my short absence I have been Poorly it is not often I get whisked into hospital but it does sometimes happen 😦

So this was a card for valentines but could be done for an anniversary or to a wedding this was so easy to make see what you think. i just really wanted to show the technique of the ribbon weaving.

  1. Whisper white card score and cut to 6 x 6
  2. mat /trim real read card to 5 3/4 x 5 3/4
  3. Cut a piece of whisper white card down to 5 1/2 x 5 1/2  now cut a heart out of this on a slant , cut some strips of ribbon in whisper white that will cover the hole in both directions .
  4. Next turn this over and start on the wrong side and stick the ribbon across one way with tape then weave the ribbon through the other way till all gaps are closed I raised this layer.
  5. I then used two heart dies to create a frame one was the same that I cut the heart out and the second was a next size down and then I raised this.
  6. The next think I did I took some real red thin ribbon and platted this and glued down from the top.
  7. I then used red enamels and dotted around the card.
  8. you may stamp a sentiment of your choice using real red ink.

 

The heart dies I used are stampin up but are retired I do not know what they were called.

Enjoy Life

  • Most of my ladies state that they always struggle to make mens cards, I think this is because for most of us it is because we love making girly cards or we have more female friends and family than the men ( sorry guys ) the type of cards we love to make are usually easy because we know who we are making them for we can look at a stamp and the idea is born. I do hope you like this card it is so simple to make go on have a go !                       
  • Take a piece of whisper white card score and fold in have mine is 4×6 inches
  • take a basic black card matt onto the white card reduce size by 1/8th of an inch
  • take a piece of whisper white and matt this down by 1/8th of and inch to fit onto the black do not stick down yet this is the piece we are going to work on.
  • Using water brushes and brushos ( Orange and yellow ) I put some brushos onto two  large stamping block and dropped water on to these then as if I was painting I simply brushed the colour across the card in an arch shape first the orange then the red randomly once i was happy with the result I dried off with my heat gun thoroughly.
  • Using black memento /archival inked up the grass stamp  I used the stamparatus as this has a hinge which will allow the stamp to be moved along at exactly the same height  all along the bottom of the card.0
  • Using the same black ink i then stamped my cyclist and the sentiment and finally I stamped a little bush in the corner .
  • The items are listed below which I have used if you would like to order them pop onto my stampin up shop or drop me a line I will order for you and post out Free if you are interested in joining my stampin up class or joining my team  then please get in touch or would you like a catalogue

Very Vintage Triple Stamping

I love this lovely technique it’s so different every time I attempt it and it is sooooo easy just follow my step by step, I also have a video tutorial on my blog somewhere regarding triple stamping.

 

 

  1. Step one score and fold a sheet of A4 whisper white card this is now the base card  C5 size
  2. Mat and layer in 1 Highland  Heather  then 1 whisper white then 1 more Highland heather then finally another whisper white. the gap the you want is up to you small or wide it is down  to personal preference, I prefer a small aperture.
  3. Remove the coloured card put onto one side for now
  4. Layer all the white card on top of each other largest is the  base then the next smaller and finally the smallest white on top.
  5. Now ink up stamp and make sure it is well inked while holding white layers down ink and stamp around the outside randomly all around and make sure the stamp is inked up for every attempt at stamping.
  6. stamp sentiment in the middle
  7. Now it is time to mat all the  white and highland heather layers together.you can put tape on or mounting foam the choice is yours start with the base  and work up to the smallest layer.
