Beautiful Bouquet from Stampin’ Up!

Look at the beautiful array of flowers in the Beautiful Bouquet Stamp Set from Stampin’ Up!  It pairs beautifully with the Jar of Love stamp set which I wanted to use as we are casing Steffi Helmschrott at the Global Design Project this week.

Beautiful Bouquet from Stampin Up

I really enjoyed stamping and die cutting several of the flowers from the Beautiful Bouquet set and then arranging them in the jar from Jar of Love.  I stamped the jar with versa mark and heat embossed it in white embossing powder and heat set it in vellum which was over laid onto a stamped grey jar to add a little dimension.

It meant I could also tie a bow around the top of the jar and secure it in place.

I stamped the greeting using a berry burst marker and a base grey marker and used the Berry Burst to pick out the words picked and friend.

I added a hand drawn line around the edge and a little strip of patterned paper to add some interest.

Easter Project for the Creative Hearts Blog Hop

Creative Hearts Blog Hop Spring Jitters

Thank you Caroline and the Creative Hearts for asking me to join you on this fun Spring themed blog hop.  I decided to play along using an Easter theme.  I have been dying to use the Mini Egg Cartons from Stampin Up and they team up perfectly with the Basket Bunch Bundle.  I can see so much potential with this cute Basket Bunch Set and matching Basket Builder Framelits and not only for Easter.

Basket Builder Framelits from Stampin Up

I created the flower basket and filled it with daffodils and flowers.  I added it to a stitched square framelit and backed it with a scallop square from the layering square framelits.Mini Egg Cartons from Stampin Up

I then coloured my mini egg carton with a spray bottle, rubbing alcohol and a good few drops of Mint Macaron Ink.  As I used rubbing alcohol the carton dried pretty quickly.  I then added some chocolate eggs (from M&S which fit perfectly) and wrapped a belly band around the carton using the Neutrals Designer Series paper pack.

Basket Bunch Easter Treat from Stampin Up

I wrapped some striped ribbon in mint macaron around the belly band and adhered the stamped panel over the top.

Some of the enamel dots were perfect flower centres and a little mint macaron sheer linen ribbon and a vellum sentiment finished it off perfectly.

I would recommend you snap these mini egg cartons up quickly as they are sure to be popular.  All the supplies I have used to create this project are available to buy via my stampin up shop.  Simply click any of the images at the bottom of my post to go direct to my shop and place you order 24/7.

Window Box Thinlits from Stampin Up

I am sharing a card I have made today using the Window Box Thinlits for the Global Design Project case the designer challenge!  This week we are casing Krista Frattin who is a Canadian Stampin Up Demo who is uber talented and a past Artisan Design team member.

#GDP072 Window Shopping Thinlits from Stampin Up

I have used a combination of products to make this card including the Irresistibly Floral design er series paper which is white and has an embossed design on it so I used the sponge brayer to add Daffoldil Delight ink to make it background yellow and the diamond pattern pop in white.

I then cut the small square die from the Window Box thinlit dies and cut around the pattern using the stitched shapes framelits. The scallop circle is from the circle framlits nesting dies and the vellum piece has been stamped and heat embossed with the little flower from the Window Shopping stamp set which coordinates with the window shopping dies.

I added a little circle of dazzling diamonds glimmer paper behind the die cut to add some sparkle.

The card we cased is shown below.  Beautifully simple or simply beautiful, either way so easy to case and make your own creation.  So why not join us this week and case Krista and upload over at the Global Design Project?

Whilst you are there check out what the other design team members have made using Krista’s card as inspiration.

Sympathy Card using Flourish Thinlits from Stampin Up

I made a lovely simple sympathy card using (guess what?) Copper foil sheets, I cannot seem to stop using them!

I die cut the flourish using the Flourish Thinlits and the Affectionately Yours designer series paper and then cut some flowers from the copper foil.

Sympathy Card made using-flourish-thinlits

I stamped the sentiment in copper embossing powder onto vellum and laid it over our doilies and wrapped some linen thread.

So delicate and pretty which catches the light beautifully.

All the supplies I used to make this card are available from Stampin’ Up! and are available from my online shop.  Click the items below to go to my shop and place your order.

Sketch Challenge from Global Design Project

This week over at the Global Design Project we are creating with a really simple sketch.  I could not resist using the copper foil sheets and a new embossing folder.

gdp062-pretty-paisley-embossing-folder

I embossed the copper foil sheet with the pretty paisleys embossing folder and layered it over the copper foil sheets from Affectionately Yours Design Series Paper and added some vellum flowers.

I got the sentiment from endless thanks (one of my faves) and embossed it with copper embossing powder as you can never have too much copper 🙂 Maybe you are wondering where those pretty little copper flower centre’s are from?  They are simply our pearls coloured with a sharpie, it looked like a light brown sharpie but perhaps it was copper?  Either way they matched perfectly.

Are you going to join us and make a card using this sketch?  Please pop on over to the Global Design Project to see what the other design team members have created and enter your project to be in with a chance of being one of the 3 winners!
