Pootler’s Blog Hop Flurry of Wishes Tri-fold Card

bog hop-001

Well its time for another Pootler’s Blog Hop. This is the third blog hop and my fellow Pootler’s and I have put together a series of projects showcasing some of the amazing new products from the Autumn and Winter Catalogue that was released on the 1st of September.

For my card today I am using the gorgeous Flurry of Wishes Stamp Set. I then used a piece of Whisper White Thick A4 Cardstock cut to 5 7/8 inches x 8 2/8 inches scored at 3 7/8 inches and 7 6/8 inches to make a tri-fold card. On the front (left hand area) I punched a hole using my 2 1/2 inch circle punch. On the right sided fold I lined up the punched hole and stamped the medium snowflake from the Flurry of Wishes set and stamped this through my punched area with Night of Navy Classic ink. Then taking my ink pad and a Stampin Up blender pen I coloured some areas of my snowflake.

Then taking some Vellum cardstock I stamped the image again with Versamark ink and heat embossed with my heat tool and Stampin Silver Embossing Powder. I then cut this out and adhered this to my card lining it up on top of my original stamped image. I then stamped the two smaller snowflake images on to some vellum cardstock and again embossed in silver embossing powder. I stamped the two images again on to some Whisper White cardstock in Marina Mist Classic Ink. I punched both pairs of the stamped images with the matching Snow Flurry Punch. Taking the larger image stamped in Marina Mist and the smaller embossed snowflake I popped these on to the card with some Stampin Dimensionals. I then added some Basic Rhinestones to sparkle up my snowflakes.

Going back to the front panel of my card I stamped one of the sentiment stamps in Versamark ink again and embossed in the silver embossing powder and again added some more Basic Rhinestones.

For the inside (middle) of my card I stamped another sentiment in Marina Mist Classic Ink and adhered the two remaining stamped and embossed snowflakes.

Stampin’ Up Mum’s Love Mother’s Day Gift Tag

So you have seen my Mother’s Day card and Curvy Keepsake Box, now its time for my gift tag.  I am certainly getting my money’s worth out of my Mum’s Love Stamp Set from the Spring and Summer Catalogue .

Mum's Love Gift Tag

Mum’s Love Gift Tag

I took a piece of Whisper White cardstock and cut it at 5 1/2 inches (13.9cm) x 2 inches (5cm) and a piece Marina Mist A4 Cardstock measuring the same and using my Ornate Tag Topper punch I punched out two tags.  I then took a piece of my leftover embossed vellum from Sunday’s card (from A4 Vellum and the Something Lacy background stamp) cut this down and punched this into a tag piece.

On my Whisper White and Marina Mist cardstock I stamped images from the Mum’s Love stamp set.  I began by stamping images using the stamping off technique onto some paper first and then stamping on to my tags, I then stamped the main image and the sentiment in solid colour with the Marina Mist Classic Ink .

To bring my tag pieces together I threaded some Silver Baker’s Twine through one of the ever so pretty Something Borrowed Embellishments and tied it off.  I then used some sheer ribbon to tie my three tags and my embellishment together.

Make It Monday Stampin’ Up Curvy Keepsake Mother’s Day Gift

Make it Monday! I am hoping to post regularly with some creative projects that are not cards to try and push myself out of my comfort zone and showcase the versatility of Stampin Up products.  Don’t get me wrong I love my cards and would say its my “thing” but I love all the inspirational projects I see on other blogs and Pinterest and want to recreate them so Monday’s posts will be where I will share my makes with you!

So following on from yesterday’s Mother’s Day theme I wanted to create a little collection of matching gifts that could be given together so for my first Make it Monday I cracked open my Curvy Keepsake Thinlit Dies for their first outing!

Curvy Keepsake Box

Curvy Keepsake Box

I took a piece of Marina Mist A4 Cardstock and popped it and the dies through my BigShot but what I also did was add a circle die from the Circles Framelits Collection to create a window (I saw this on a YouTube video by Creations with Christina).  I did this to both sides of the box.  Using the next size up of the Circles Framelits Collection I die cut two pieces of Window Sheet to cover my die cut holes.  While I had my BigShot out I die cut a tag with one of the coordinating tag dies out of Marina Mist cardstock and out of a piece of some left over embossed vellum from yesterday’s project, you never know when left overs like this can come in handy!

I then glued my two circles of window sheet over my die cut windows in my cardstock and using some Fast Fuse adhesive I stuck my two die cut pieces of the keepsake box together.  Such a cute little box!

I took my Marina Mist tag piece and stamped the small “just for You” sentiment out of the Mum’s Love Stamp Set in Marina Mist Classic Ink and offset layered this in top of my embossed tag with Stampin Dimensionals .  I threaded some Silver Baker’s Twine through and added one of the ever so pretty Something Borrowed Embellishments and tied it off.  I used some sheer ribbon to tie a poor excuse for a bow through the handle of my box feeding my tag loop through before typing my bow.

Then all there was left to do was fill it with goodies mmmm……!!

I can’t believe how super simple and quick this is to create, its perfect for a little gift or for mass producing favour boxes! I can’t recommend it highly enough, it was carried over from the Autumn & Winter catalogue to the Spring & Summer catalogue but who knows if it will make it in to the Annual catalogue so be warned!

Seasonal Sunday Stampin’ Up Mum’s Love Mother’s Day Card

Happy Sunday!! I thought I would use my Sunday posts to showcase my projects I make for the current season or any upcoming holidays, hopefully I can inspire you by using some of the current seasonal products in the currents catalogues.

So as next Sunday is Mother’s Day I broke out my Mum’s Love Stamp Set from the Spring and Summer Catalogue and made a couple of cards using the same stamp set and techniques just in different colours.

I took a piece of Marina Mist A4 Cardstock and cut it at 5 7/8 inches (14.8cm) and scored it at 4 1/8 inches (10.5cm).  Then I took a piece of Wisteria Wonder A4 Cardstock and cut it at 4 1/8 inches (10.5cm) and scored it at 5 7/8 inches (14.8cm) for my card bases.  I then took two pieces of A4 Vellum measuring 5 3/8 inches (13.4cm) x 3 5/8 inches (8.8cm) and with the Something Lacy background stamp and Versamark Ink  I stamped both pieces.  I heat embossed this using my heat tool and Stampin Up White Embossing powder.  I adhered these pieces to my card bases.

I took two more pieces of Marina Mist and Wisteria Wonder cardstock measuring 4 3/8 inches (10.9cm) x 2 3/8 inches (5.8cm) and two pieces of Whisper White cardstock a 1/4 inch smaller on all sides.  On my coloured cardstock pieces I stamped some of the flower images using coordinating Marina Mist Classic Ink and Wisteria Wonder Classic Ink.  On the whisper white piece I stamped some more images and the main sentiment from the Mum’s Love stamp set.  I popped all these together and on to my card base with Stampin Dimensionals and on to my card fronts.

On the Wisteria Wonder card as I had positioned my sentiment piece up to the top left corner I felt the bottom right corner needed something so I punched 3 flowers with the four petal flower punch from the Itty Bitty Accent punch pack, sponged the edges and added some Basic Pearl Jewels to the centres and popped these on to my card.  I finished both cards off with some basic pearl jewels.

For the inside I popped a piece of whisper white cardstock measuring 5 5/8 inches (13.9cm) x 3 7/8 inches (9.3cm) in and stamped the remaining half of my sentiment and some of the coordinating images in the matching inks.

So two lovely Mother’s Day cards for all the lovely mothers out there!!
