Painted Harvest Stamp Set by Stampin' Up!

I wanted to share this beautiful card with you today as it's made with one of my favourite stamp sets from Stampin' Up's Autumn/Winter Catalogue.

It's called Painted Harvest and it's such a great stamp set and makes the prettiest cards it doesn't matter what colour you use the images always look so cute.

Click here to see the Painted Harvest Stamp Set
On this card I used a base layer of Powder Pink card stock and then I matted and layered Crumb Cake and Whisper White card stock.

I stamped on the Whisper White card with Powder Pink and Berry Burst Ink. I took the larger outer layer of the flower as this is a two step stamp and I stamped that in Powder Pink and then I stamped the second layer the smaller inner layer of the flower with Berry Burst. The inside of the flower I stamped in Smokey Slate and the little dots on the inside of the flower were also stamped in the Smokey Slate. I used the sentiment from the stamp set and stamped that in Memento Ink. I also went round the edges of the Whisper White card with my Sponge Dauber with the Powder Pink ink and just added some colour I call it smooshing or distressing the edges :).  

The last think i did was add some Shimmer Ribbon in Powder Pink and stick the card together and hay presto I had a super cute card in no time at all.

Hearts Come Home Christmas Card - Stampin' Up!

I wanted to share with you a super card I made recently using the Hearts Come Home Stamp Set it's one of the sets in the new Autumn/Winter Stampin' Up! Catalogue, and I really think its a lovely set with some cute images and sentiments.

I've been doing a lot of cards recently with a lovely technique that uses different colours to sponge on to the paper. I started with some Crumb Cake Card Stock as the base and then matted and layered that with Night of Navy, Garden Green and then Whisper White. ( the ribbon under the garden green layer is Stripped Grosgrain Ribbon in Dapper Denim)  

Hearts Come Home
I masked off a small circle in the right hand corner with a post-it-note using the 1 inch circle punch, I then stamped the houses in the bottom row in Night of Navy, I then covered the bottom row of houses with some scrap paper and stamped the next two row going up the page, I wasn't too precise but i just wanted the idea that the houses were behind each other. That's the fun thing about card making you don't have to be an expert you just try things and see where it takes you. I then stamped the little tree from the stamp set in between the houses in Old Olive.

After all that was done I used Night of Navy and sponged it all over the page except for about 1 inch round the circle which was covered with the post-it-note. I then went over it again at the top so it looked like storm clouds just this time slightly heavier, I went round the post-it-note with Daffodil Delight and Pumpkin Pie, so it looked like the moon was shining.  After taking off the post-it-note I stamped the image of the sledge with Father Christmas in Memento Black Ink across the moon and used the little tiny star to stamp in silver.  The sentiment is from the set and I stamped that in Night of Navy too. I loved the finished cards and wanted to share with you how easy it is once you get started.

I hope you like my card and if you would like the Stamp set you can click the link under this picture. This stamp set also comes in a bundle with co-ordinating framelits which would give you a super die cut image as well, click the link under the first picture of the card to go to that link and take a look.

Painted Harvest Christmas Card and Gift Box Envelope

I'm so sorry I haven't managed to post recently, I've a bit of a back problem and I've had such a terrible back ache that sitting at the computer for too long hurts :( but enough about me. I wanted to share with you lovely people a super cute little project I completed recently with the Painted Harvest Stamp Set. This stamp set is hidden at the back of the Autumn/Winter Catalogue on page 49. It's not one that jumps out at you at first but it makes the most beautiful cards and projects and not just for Christmas.

I made this little card 4cm x 4cm with layers of Crumb Cake, Cherry Cobbler and Whisper White. The base is 8cm x 4cm and folded in half at 4cm in Crumb Cake, the Cherry Cobbler is cut at 3.5/8cm x 3.5/8cm and the Whisper White is cut at 3 3/8 x 3.3/8cm . I layered the card stock one on top of the other and then I used the leaf stamp and stamped it all the way round in Old Olive Ink on the Whisper White card.  I used the little holly stamp from the Carols of Christmas stamp set and my Stampin' Write Markers in Cherry Cobbler and Garden Green i used the pens to colour the stamp in and then stamped them 6 times, I fussy cut them out and placed them on the leaf design as you can see below. The sentiment is from the Hearts Come Home Stamp Set and i stamped that out and placed that on the front of the card.

Painted Harvest

The envelope was made using the Envelope Punch Board which is a super piece of equipment to have and is so easy to use.  I needed an envelope that was bigger in depth then normal so I just adapted the measurements to make it deeper.

Stampin' Up! - Christmas Cards Using Carols of Christmas Bundle

It's never to early to start with your Christmas Cards and Stampin' Up! are always on the ball with lovely on trend bundles like the Carols of Christmas Bundle which has a super 10% discount. The bundle has a great stamp set with 13 stamps, including 2 lovely large sentiments to make your cards super cute. The bundle also comes with a packet of 11 super dies that not only co-ordinate with the stamp set but there are two that give you the ability to add extra interest to your cards with a border effect. 

Carols of Christmas

This is the first card i made using the bundle as as you can see i have used one of the dies twice round the edge of the card to make this super boarder effect on the card. The large sentiments are so lovely with this 3d and shading effect on them. 

Carols of Christmas

On the card above I used another of the dies at the bottom of the card to give this sweet night time effect and can you see I added some Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Paper behind the moon to give it a wow factor. So easy to do and a super quick card to make.

Carols of Christmas

This card took no time at all as the sentiments are so great, I just used the sentiment and added some little holly leaves and berries round the edges and hey presto it was done.

The last card I made used one of the dies in the set to make these trees aren't they lovely and they sparkle so well in the light. I hope you can see the sparkly because they look so cute close up and anybody receiving one would love it.

Carols of Christmas

This is a great bundle if you want to make some super cards all ready for Christmas it's on an early release and you can get it NOW before the new Autumn/Winter Catalogue is released on the 1st September. Just click below this picture or below any of the cards to take a look online in my store.

Stampin' Up! Baby Card Using Moon Baby Stamp Set + Brand New Thinlits!!

I wanted to share with you a baby card I made recently using some brand new Thinlits from Stampin' Up!. The thinlits are called Card Front Builder Thinlits Dies and they come in the early release bundle called Carols of Christmas. The bundle comes with a super 10% off discount and is the only bundle that has been made available before anything else from the new Autumn/Winter Catalogue.

Moon Baby 

I loved making this card because the Moon Baby stamp set is so sweet and the image of the baby above the moon is super cute.

I made the card by layering Melon Mambo and Powder Pink card stock. Before I layered these colours together I used my brand new Card Front Builder Thinlits Dies to cut out the star shapes in each corner. I placed some Dazzling Diamond Glimmer paper underneath the Powder Pink Card stock so you would get a super cute sparkly effect from the front. I then stamped my image on Whisper White paper from the Moon Baby Stamp set and coloured it in using Watercolor Pencils and my Blender Pen. The colouring is so therapeutic and so lovely to do. I smooshed the edges that's a technical term :) with some of the Melon Mambo ink and layered that on some more Melon Mambo and Powder Pink Card and popped it on the front of the card using Dementionals. The sentiment is also from the Moon Baby stamp set. The last thing i did was punch a hole in the front of the panel with the image and pop some of the lovely new Powder Pink finely woven ribbon through and make a pretty tag top.     

Card Front Builder Thinlits Dies
The card came together very quickly and I think looks great, and the added dimension of the corners make the card look really lovely. You could make the card in any colour you liked.

The New Carols of Christmas Bundle is available right now through my online store and all you have to do is click on one of the pictures to go straight to the store, and if you get it as a bundle you'll get 10% off, making it a great deal.
Please use this months Hostess Rewards Code to get yourself the bonus of a Stampin' Up! gift and hand made card from me. The code is SK9WFRAW and you use when prompted by the site. It is for any order over £20 and under £150. If you spend over the £150 please don't use the hostess code as the hostess rewards go directly to you, to use on whatever extra goodies you would like to pop in your basket.    

Have fun and pop back soon to see what other cards I have been making.

Delightful Daisy Dsp

Stampin' Up'! Wood Words - Pinkies Weekend Swaps

I had the most fabulous weekend in Birmingham last weekend at the Stampin' Up! Pinkies Demonstrator Team Training Weekend.

When I go to these events we all have to take along a card front or a 3d project to swap with the other ladies/gentlemen and this time I had to make 54 swaps, wow!! It was fine as I love these events and it's great to get back 54 different swaps to use in my business. These are my swaps below made with the Stamp Set Wood Words which is a one of the brand new stamp sets in the 2017 - 19 Annual Catalogue.

Wood Words
This is the stamp set and matching framelits that I used and it comes as a bundle with a saving of 10%. I used Rose Red Card Stock and Blushing Bride and Rose Red Ink. The sentiment is from the stamp set and the cute little heart is one of the small framelits from the bundle.  

Wood Words Bundle
All the ladies that belong to the Pinkies Team were invited to go along and join in the event. We got to make lots of projects, enjoy each other company and mainly eat cake and crafted together.  This is one of the highlights of the year for me and one of the best bits of being a Stampin' Up! demonstrator and being of the Pinkies Team. These ladies are so much fun to be around and we did so much talking it's a wonder we got any crafting done. Here are some of the lovely projects we got to make. Each project was designed by one of the lovely Pinkies and we got to make all three. Plus a couple of other i will share with you next week.


And here are some of the lovely ladies that I got to share my weekend with such a great bunch of ladies and they all love crafting just like me.

and here are all the ladies that I shared the weekend with what a happy bunch of ladies we are

I'm so happy that i work for such a fun company and i get to meet such great ladies and enjoy crafting with them. That's what I love about Stampin' Up!.

Stampin' Up! Nailed It Father's Day Card

I wanted to share with you another lovely card that I have just made. I loved using the Nailed It Stamp Set for my class last week so I decided to use it again for my Daddy and his Father's Day card. My dad is always in his garage doing something or other and is such a great DIY person that this set was perfect, I think all dads lovely their garages if not to just get away from their kids:) and the wife!!!

I started by getting a piece of the lovely Cucumber Crush Card Stock and cutting it at 10.5cm down the middle. I then folded it in half and scored at 14.9cm I used some of the super cute Urban Underground DSP at the top and I then stamped using Memento Ink, the hammer, Screwdriver and Saw and coloured them in using my Watercolour Pencils and Blender Pen. I love the Watercolour pencils they are so easy to use and I love the result.

Nailed It

I then fussy cut out the tools which is easy to do and stuck them on the card using some dimensionals.
The sentiment is from the same stamp set but I will share a secret I just used the Stampin' Write Maker in Cucumber Crush and just coloured the words in, as i didn't want the lines either side of the words. (if you see the stamp set you will see what I mean, hopefully :)) The punch I used is a little sneak peak of a brand new punch called  Pretty Label Punch and it's available from the 1st June.
The other little sentiment is from the stamp set also and I used the Banner Triple Punch to cut that out.

I loved the way it turned out and it really didn't take long to do. 

If you like the stamp set why not get one for yourself and make some super men's cards to. You can click on the Picture above and It will take you to my online shop or you can click on the highlighted purple items and this will also take you to my website. All supplies can be purchase through my online shop and if you use my online Hostess Code  ZKZAEPYF I send out a handmade card and Stampin' Up! Free Gift. I'm always happy to help so get in touch if you would like any further help.

Have a great weekend

Stampin' Up! Nailed It Men's Cards by Tracy Abrahams

I just wanted to share with you a fab class i held on Wednesday night using the super cool Nailed It Stamp set by Stampin' Up! This is my new favourite stamp set, well for this week anyway, it makes the cuties men's tools and when you colour them in they come alive.  As you can see below we made 3 cards all using the stamp set.  

Nailed It Stamp Set
The cards were made to show off how versatile the stamp set is and that you can not only make a fab background like in the spanner card which we heat embossed but with just a little bit of the matching dsp from the Urban Underground suite you can make a Fathers Day card in minutes.

Nailed It Stamp set

The card below with the tools was coloured in using the Watercolour pencils which all the ladies enjoyed doing. Colouring is such a therapeutic thing after a hard day and you can just feel the tension melting away,

Nailed It Stamp Set 

This one was made by one of the ladies and she decided she just wanted to colour it in using the basic grey watercolour pencil and some of the Wink of Stellar Clear to make it a little sparkly,

and here's all the ladies enjoying the evening. It was such a fun night and everyone went home with 3 men's cards.

I love sharing my passion for Stampin' Up! as there stamp sets, framelits and inks always give a great result.
