So for the final week of the December design team I wanted to do another 3D project but keep it simple.

temp

I made this bag using one piece of Designer Series Paper. I chose the Pick a Pattern set and used the sheet that had an art theme to it.

I scored the paper at 3″, then turned the paper 180 degrees and scored again at 3″. I turned the paper 90 degrees and scored at 3/4″ and 4 1/2″ and as before turned it at 180 degrees and scored at 3/4″ and 4 1/2″. I folded the 3/4″ line backwards and glued it into place on both sides.

Then using the side panel I folded it back to the edge so I could create a diagonal line and then repeated this on the other 3 sides. I then glued the sides together at the top and punched holes through on both sides. I threaded ribbon and tied it together to create handles.

I stamped the sentiment on Whisper White cardstock and cut it out with Everyday label punch and then cut another out of Flirty Flamingo cardstock. I glued these together and added Rhinestones to the front. I punched a small hole at the top and threaded Whisper White Bakers twine through and tied this onto the ribbon.

Well that’s it, I hoped you liked my project for this week, dont forget to check out the other designs from my team.

Until next time…

This week I decided to do a 3D project. With christmas coming up its perfect for a little stocking filler.

temp

The box size is 5 1/2″ x 2 5/8″

I used a piece of Bermuda Bay cardstock that I cut to 6 1/2″ x 6 3/8″. On the long edge I scored it at 1/2″, 3″, 3 1/2″ and 6″. On the short edge I scored it at 1/2″ and 5 7/8″.

I cut a piece of Whisper White cardstock to 5 1/4″ by 2 3/8″. Using the scissor stamp I repeatedly stamped using Memento ink in Tuxedo Black. I adhered this to the box with Fast Fuse.

I took a scrap piece of Whisper White cardstock and stamped the scissor image with the same ink as before. Once dry I coloured it in with Bermuda Bay and Smoky Slate Blends. I fussy cut it out and added cut up Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I cut a scalloped oval from Bermuda Bay cardstock with Layering Ovals Framelits and a smaller oval from Whisper White which I stamped a sentiment on to it & added the scissor topper.

I tied a piece of ribbon around the box with a bow and added the completed topper to just the ribbon with more Stampin’ Dimensionals.

This box is perfect for Stampin’ Up! Snips but can also be used for lots of little things including a few notecards and envelopes.

 

Well that’s it, I hoped you liked my project for this week, I’m really looking forward to sharing next weeks project with you.

Until next time…

This week I wanted to use a colour that I hadn’t used very much so I chose Fresh Fig. I love this colour but its not my ‘go to’ colour (after this it will be moved into that category)

I decided on a simple design this week. I chose to use the Stitched Shapes Framelits as I thought it would give a ‘creative’ touch. I used the Layering Circles Framelits to cut the image out and the corresponding size and shape of the Stitched Shapes to layer behind it.

I made a card base from Fresh Fig and added a layer of Whisper White which was cut slightly smaller than the card base. I added the stamped images to the card base with Stampin’ Dimensionals and then I stamped the sentiment with Basic Black archival ink.

To complete the card I coloured a few rhinestones with the Rich Razzleberry Blends pen in the dark shade and added them to the card.

Well that’s it, I hoped you liked my project for this week, I’m really looking forward to sharing next weeks project with you.

Until next time…

Pootlers Design Team – Crafting Forever – Week 1

14088395_10153745365531603_281310922678395855_n

I’m so excited to be a part of the Pootler’s Design Team again. Every Thursday throughout December, myself and 9 other ladies from our team will be showcasing projects made with the Crafting Forever stamp set.

When I saw this set in the annual catalogue I loved it but never got around to actually buying it so when it arrived on my doorstep I was so excited! When I started playing with it I realised I had losts of ideas, however when it came to doing the actual project I had lost my crafting mojo as I was, and still am, full of cold. This isn’t the project I had planned but I’m really pleased with it and what I’ve learned is don’t give up if you are struggling. So here’s my project for week 1.

temp

I started this card using Stampin’ Markers but then remembered I still hadn’t used my Stampin’ Blends. So I redid it and preferred the final look of the pens.

I used a piece of Whisper White cardstock, which I stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black ink, using the trio of pens image.

I coloured them in using the dark and light Night of Navy and Old Olive pens and then I used the dark Cherry Cobbler and dark Pink Piroeutte pens for the final pen. For the ‘metal work’ of the pens I used dark and light Smoky Slate pens.

Using the Lots of Labels Framelits I cut the pen image from the third largest die, then using the next two larger dies, I cut out one from Smoky Slate and Basic Black cardstock respectively.

On the Basic Black cut out, I adhered a piece of Silver 1/8″ ribbon to the front. I added Stampin’ Dimensionals to the back of the stamped image and adhered this to the Smoky Slate layer. I then used Fast Fuse to adhere to the Basic Black layer.

I cut a card base from Melon Mambo and then added a mat from the Naturally Eclectic Designer series paper. I chose to use the blue design as I thought this would compliment the colour scheme best. I adhered this and the topper to the card base with Fast Fuse.

For the sentiment I used Flourishing Phrases stamp set. I used a scrap of Basic Black and heat embossed the sentiment with Versamark and white embossing powder. I used the Everyday Label punch to cut it out and then punched it again further down to make a smaller image, again I adhered this with Fast Fuse and added a bow with a mini glue dot.

Well that’s it, I hoped you liked my project for the first week, I’m really looking forward to sharing next weeks project with you.

Until next time….

Pootler's Birthday Club, Stampin' Up!

Pootlers Birthday Blog Hop

I decided to take part in this month’s Birthday Club as it had been some time since I last did it.

The card I’m sharing with you today was made for my mother-in-law’s birthday.

IMG_4263

I absolutely love the Whole Lot of Lovely DSP and I chose one of my favourite designs for this card. I thought the Tranquil Tide and Pool Party combo worked really well together with this design.

I used the Stylized Birthday stamp for the sentiment and Lots of Labels Framelits. I stamped the image onto Whisper White cardstock, using Pool Party ink and cut out the sentiment. I moved the die further along the die cut and cut it again, giving me a smaller layer so that I could use the same size die for a Pool Party mat.

IMG_4264

I then used Wink of Stella to go over the sentiment, although it doesn’t show on the photos.

I adhered the DSP onto the Tranquil Tide mat and added Pool Party ribbon then adhered this to a Pool Party card base. Using Stampin’ Dimensionals, I raised the sentiment on the front of the card and added a bow. I also added hearts from the Subtles Enamel Shapes.

I hope you have enjoyed this blog post, I would love you to check out the other birthday themed projects on this blog hop.

Pootlers Design Team – Flirty Flowers – Week 4

14088395_10153745365531603_281310922678395855_n

Thank you for joining me for the final weeks design. Every Thursday throughout September, myself and 4 other ladies from our team will be showcasing projects made with the Flirty Flowers stamp set.

For the final week I wanted to do something a little special and showcase nearly all of the images in the collection, now I used a lot of products but you could stick to one stamp set and one die set or punch to give you a similar effect.

IMG_4106

For the box I used a simple ‘pizza box’ style box and used Thick Whisper White cardstock cut to 5 1/2″ x 10″. I scored this on the long side at 1″, 4 1/2″, 5 1/2″, 9″. On the short side I scored it at 1″, 4 1/2″. This will create a 3 1/2″ square box once completed.

I assigned each stamp to a colour from 2017-2019 in-color collection and stamped on the unassembled box with each stamp/colour in a random pattern. Then I folded and burnished my score lines, cut up the score lines. Using the 3/4″ circle punch I cut out a half circle from the front of the lid help with opening the box. Then I glued the tabs to complete the box. I decided to add a layer to the top of the box, I cut Berry Burst cardstock to 3″ square and glued that on. I stamped an image onto a 2 3/4″ Whisper White square and glued that to the coloured cardstock layer.

 

 

I made five card blanks from each of the in-color collection cardstock measuring 3″ x 6″, scored at 3″. Using the Fresh Florals DSP I made envelopes with the envelope punch board by following the instructions printed on the board. You could use the mini white envelopes from the Autumn/Winter Catalogue to save on this part of the project.

IMG_4108

I cut Whisper White cardstock to 2 3/4″ square for each of the card fronts and using the stamp/ink combo from before, I stamped the images onto the card front. Using the Layering Circles and Layering Ovals Framelits I cut out Whisper White cardstock and the in-color collection cardstock for the sentiments, I glued these to the card bases using Snail and dimensionals and then I added a range of embellishments to the finished notecards. I also used the Classic Label and the Banner Triple punches as well as the Thoughtful Banners stamp set for extra sentiments.

If you haven’t got the all the die sets you could use the Stitched Shapes as this set will give you circles, squares and ovals in one. I also used the Classic Label and the Banner Triple punches as well as the Thoughtful Banners stamp set for extra sentiments.

 

So that was my project for week 4, please stop by and see my fellow team blog posts and thank you so much for joining me this month for the Pootler’s Design Team, I hope to see you on here again soon.

Pootlers Design Team – Flirty Flowers – Week 3

14088395_10153745365531603_281310922678395855_n

Thank you for joining me for this week’s design. Every Thursday throughout September, myself and 4 other ladies from our team will be showcasing projects made with the Flirty Flowers stamp set.

So for this week I wanted to do something simple and I wanted to create my own DSP. I stamped the little flower several times onto a piece of Whisper White cardstock I then had to colour each one in by hand.

IMG_4078

I used a range of colours including, reds, pinks, purples, yellow and blue for the flowers and two shades of green for the leaves. I then cut this to 4 1/2″ square. Using the layered circles framelits, I die-cut a circle in the centre.

I took a piece of scrap Whisper White cardstock, I stamped the sentiment and cut it out so it was larger than the hole I’d created in my DSP. Then with a scrap piece of Daffodil Delight cardstock, I cut a circle using the same die I’d used for my DSP and then with the co-ordinating scalloped die, I turned it into a frame.

Using Wink Of Stella, I added some shimmer to the DSP layer by going over the coloured flowers and then I attached the frame to it using multi purpose liquid glue.

I made my card blank from Daffodil Delight cardstock that I cut down to 5″ x 10″ and scored it at 5″ to make a square card. I glued the sentiment to the centre of the card front and using dimensionals, I adhered the DSP over the sentiment.

So there you have it! A super simple and fairly quick card that you can make if you are in a rush.

So that was my project for week 3, please stop by and see my fellow team blog posts and don’t forget to check in next week.
