Jar of Love and Nailed It for a masculine card

I have had an idea rattling about in my head for the last week or so, but no time to actually try it out until this morning. I knew that the Jar of Love and Nailed It stamp sets would make a fab shaker card and in the right colours it makes a great masculine card.

www.crafty-rootes.com – Jar of Love and Nailed It stamp sets by Stampin’ Up!

I stamped the largest jar from the Jar of Love stamp set in Archival Basic Black ink onto Very Vanilla cardstock. Using the Big Shot and Multipurpose Platform I die cut the jar out using the co-ordinating Every Day Jars framelits, also cutting out the centre leaving just the rim of the jar. From a scrap of Window Sheet I die cut the largest jar shape again and glued it onto the back of the rim of the jar using Tombow Liquid Adhesive and set it aside to dry.

www.crafty-rootes.com – Jar of Love and Nailed It stamp sets by Stampin’ Up!

While I was waiting I die cut a number of bolts and screws from the from Silver Foil cardstock using the Build It framelits, these will be the shaker pieces inside my jar. When the jar piece was dry I added the Foam Adhesive Strips to the back making sure to leave no gaps for the bits to fall through.

I chose a piece of Seaside Shore dsp with a love blue ombre pattern and adhered it to a piece of Basic Black cardstock with Tombow Liquid Adhesive.  I placed the bolts and crews onto the dsp in a single layer, removed the backing tape from the Foam Adhesive Strips and add the jar over the top pressing down firmly. I then added the entire piece to a Pacific Point card base.

The sentiment, from the Nailed It stamp set, was stamped in Archival Basic Black ink onto a scrap of Very Vanilla cardstock and cut into a small flag shape using Scissors. It was stuck to the card front using Tombow Liquid Adhesive. I really liked the card but wondered if it needed another pop of colour. With this in mind I stamped the jar lid from the Jar of Love stamp set in Real Red ink and die cut it out using the Every Day Jars framelits.

Which version do you like – with the Real Red lid or without? Let me know.

Moon Baby for a precious baby girl

Today the Moon Baby stamp set was out on my desk and I couldn’t resist having another play with my Watercolor Pencils. This is what I came up with, hope you like it.

www.crafty-rootes.com – Moon Baby stamp set by Stampin’ Up!

I stamped the cute floating baby image from the Moon Baby stamp set using Momento Tuxedo Black ink onto a layer of Whisper White cardstock. I added a sprinkling of stars to the top of the panel. I coloured the images in using the gorgeous Watercolour pencils and a Blender Pen. I used Melon Mambo, Bermuda Bay, Early Espresso, Daffodil Delight and Calypso Coral pencils.

www.crafty-rootes.com – Moon Baby stamp set by Stampin’ Up!

The Whisper White panel was mounted onto a layer of Melon Mambo cardstock using Tombow Liquid Adhesive. The whole piece was then added onto a Crumb Cake card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I die cut some clouds from Vellum cardstock using the Up & Away Framelit dies and added them using Mini Glue Dots. Then some stars punched from Gold Glimmer Paper using the Star Confetti punch to make stars.

Such a cute card, I just need to find a baby girl to give it to!

Papillon Potpourri for a Mother’s Day Box card

One of my oldest friends Jo Law – http://www.facebook.com/Jospapercrafts/?fref=ts – who is also one of my downline, has been on a roll making gorgeous box cards and I was inspired to make my own version for my Mum as her Mother’s Day card.

www.crafty-rootes.com – Papillion Potpourri stamp set by Stampin’ Up!

I chose Soft Sky cardstock for the box and cut a piece 12” by 6 ½” and scored it at 2¾”, 5½”, 8¼” and 11” the turned it 90⁰ on my Simply Scored Scoring Tool and scored at 2¾”. A second piece of Soft Sky 5¾” by 2” was scored on the long side at 1” and 4¾” then turned to the short side and cut into 2 1” strips. I cut some Rose Red cardstock into 4 pieces measuring 2½” by 2½” and 1 piece at 6¼” by 2½”. I stuck the layers together with Tombow Liquid Adhesive and added them to the Soft Sky panels.

www.crafty-rootes.com – Inside the Lines dsp and Papillion Potpourri stamp set from Stampin’ Up! makes a lovely Mother’s Day card

I chose to use the gorgeous Inside the Lines  dsp – one of the Sale-a-Bration free choices with a £45 order until the 31st March 2017 – for my decorative panels and cut 4 pieces at 2¼” by 2¼” and one at 6⅛” by 2¼” . I used Rose Red, Bermuda Bay, Soft Sky, Pink Pirouette, Island Indigo and So Saffron markers to partially colour the dsp before adding them to the Rose Red panels on the box.

I cut up each of the smaller, square panels and removed the small tab at the end. I folded and burnished 3 of the 4 cut squares leaving one intact to act as the back of the box. I then folded and burnished all of the side panels using my Bone Folder and adhered the box together using Fast Fuse Adhesive.  I then folded the ends of the two 1” strips and added them to the inside of the box using Tombow Liquid Adhesive.

I stamped lots of butterflies from the Papillon Potpourri stamp set in Rose Red, Bermuda Bay, Pink Pirouette and Soft Sky onto Whisper White cardstock and punched them out using the Elegant Butterfly and the Bitty Butterfly punches.

I cut some thin strips of Window Sheet and stuck the butterflies on using Mini Glue Dots and added them to the supporting strips inside the box so that they appear to be flying out. I added some Basic Rhinestones to give a bit of sparkle to this gorgeous card. The sentiment comes from the Thoughtful Banners stamp set and was stamped in Rose Red ink and punched out using the Classic Label Punch. It was added to the front panel with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I am really pleased with this card, it looks fabulous. I hope Mum likes it.

Large Number Dies meets Botanical Blooms

It was a beautiful, crisp sunny day when I created a 50th Wedding Anniversary card for my Aunt and Uncle who celebrated over the weekend.

I cut the 50 from Gold Foil Paper using the Large Number Framelit Dies and added it to a 3” by 3” square of Whisper White cardstock. I rounded the top right corner with the Project Life Corner Rounder and added the Whisper White layer to a 3¼” by 3¼” to a panel of Cherry Cobbler with the top right hand corner also rounded.

www.crafty-rootes.com – Stampin’ Up! Large Number Dies and Botanical Builder dies

I couldn’t find any designer Series Paper (dsp0 I liked and ended up using a piece of retired Winter Wonderland dsp 5½” by 5½”. Love these thick gold stripes which give a really luxurious feel to the card. I added the topper piece I had created, with Stampin’ Dimensionals to the top right hand side of the dsp panel which I had adhered directly to the Whisper White card base using Tombow Liquid Adhesive.

www.crafty-rootes.com – Stampin’ Up! Botanical Builder dies and Large Number dies

I then die cut some of the flowers and leaves using the Big Shot and the Botanical Builders dies in Cherry Cobbler, Gold Foil and Chocolate Chip cardstock and layered them to give some added dimension and interest. I added them using Stampin’ Dimensionals and Mini Glue Dots around the bottom left hand corner of the topper. They looked lovely, very elegant.  I finished them off by adding White Perfect Accents to each of the flower centres.

www.crafty-rootes.com – Stampin’ Up! Large Number dies and Botanical Builder dies

The sentiment from the One Wild Ride stamp set was stamped in Cherry Cobbler ink then  hand trimmed out and added with Stampin’ Dimensionals. At the last minute I added a small Vellum butterfly punched out using the Bitty Butterfly punch and decorated it with a Cherry Cobbler Enamel Accent. I made an envelope using some retired Cherry Cobbler dsp and my Envelope Punch Board.

Beautiful Dragonfly Dreams for March classes

I’ve had a lot of fun at my classes this month using the Dragonfly Dreams stamp set and co-ordinating Detailed Dragonfly Thinlits Dies by Stampin’ Up!  This bundle (save 10% if you buy the 2 together until the end of May 2017) creates the most beautiful projects as you can see below.

www.crafty-rootes.com – Dragonfly Dreams by Stampin’ Up!

The 1st card was relatively simple and included a great but simple technique.  I love the reaction I get when I ink up a clear block, using a Pink Pirouette ink pad on this occasion, spray with a light mist of water using a Stampin’ Spritzer before stamping  down onto a piece of Whisper White cardstock. The lovely thing is that everyone’s stamped image comes out slightly different. After it dried we stamped the speckled image form the Avant Garden stamp set using either Mint Macaron or Basic Gray ink. We stamped the detailed dragonfly image using a Wisteria Wonder ink pad onto Whisper White cardstock and die cutting using the Big Shot and Magnetic Platform. A bit of bling was added using the Basic Rhinestones and a coat of Clear Wink of Stella. The dragonfly was added to tiny pieces of Stampin’ Dimensionals under the thorax. The sentiment was stamped in either Mint Macaron or Wisteria Wonder ink and the whole stamped piece was added to a Wisteria Wonder Layer then onto a Thick Whisper White card base. Lovely……

www.crafty-rootes.com – Dragonfly Dreams stamp set and Detailed Dragonfly dies by Stampin’ Up!

We stepped it up with the 2nd card by stamping the watercolour looking blossom from the Avant Garden stamp set in alternating Pink Pirouette and Wisteria Wonder onto a Whisper White panel before adding some leaves in Mint Macaron and the centre of the flowers in Basic Gray. The sentiment was added in either Wisteria Wonder or Mint Macaron and the whole piece added to a Mint Macaron layer after corner rounding the upper right corners with the Project Life Corner rounder. We die cut the solid dragonfly from Whisper White cardstock and the detailed dragonfly from Basic Gray cardstock before adhering them together with Tombow Liquid Adhesive. Using Pink Pirouette, Mint Macaron and Wisteria Wonder markers we coloured the white spaces on the dragonfly before adhering it to the stamped layer using small pieces of Stampin’ Dimensionals. The whole piece was then added to a Wisteria Wonder card base.

 

The 3rd project was the gorgeous box die cut using the Window Box Thinlit dies. We stamped around the edge with the same flower we’d previously used from the Avant Garden stamp set in Pink Pirouette and Wisteria Wonder with Basic Gray centres. The Basic Gray dragonfly was backed by Vellum for this project and coloured using the same markers. Such a pretty box.

High Tide for a monochromatic birthday card

Yesterday was my husbands’ birthday and today I am sharing the card I made for him. He really likes clean and simple cards, so with this in mind I hit Pinterest and did a little searching. I wanted an outdoor, wildlife theme for the card and found a link to a video by a lady called Esther of Stampin Star Creations – https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qqKkyG59UeE – . She used the High Tide stamp set to make a beautiful, understated card which was just what I was looking for.

www.crafty-rootes.com – High Tide stamp set by Stampin’ Up!

I took a panel of Whisper White cardstock and die cut a circle from the upper half of the panel using the Layering Circle Dies and the Big Shot. I left the die cut circle in-situ and stamped the ‘sandy bank’ image in Basic Gray ink overlapping both the circle and the layer from which the circle was cut. I added some texture by stamping over the sandy bank with the smaller sand image in the Basic Gray ink which also covered the indent where the lighthouse stamp fits.

www.crafty-rootes.com – High Tide by Stampin’ Up!

I lifted out the die cut circle and, using a Sponge Dauber, inked around the edges in Basic Gray bringing the colour around the top of the circle to give the look of a cloudy sky. Using the Basic Gray ink, I inked up and stamped off the ‘sea’ image before stamping it onto the circle above the ‘sandy bank’. The grasses were also stamped in Basic Gray onto the ‘sandy bank’. Next I added the birds using the Basic Black Ink to give them more depth…….I think they look amazing. I added the ‘birds in flight’ image to the top of the Whisper White panel creating the frame frame. At  this point I notice a small smudge above the birds and to disguise it I cleaned my ‘birds in flight’ image really well using my Stampin Scrub and Stampin Mist, inked up the last, smallest bird in flight and added it over the smudge, it looked fantastic though I say so myself……… I added the sentiment from the Balloon Adventures stamp set to the lower left corner using the Basic Gray ink pad.

www.crafty-rootes.com – High Tide by Stampin’ Up!

I adhered the Whisper White panel to a layer of Basic Black cardstock and then to a  Thick Whisper White card base using Tombow Liquid Adhesive and added the stamped circle using Stampin Dimensionals.

I am really happy with the card and my husband loved it, I hope you do too. Thanks you for visiting my blog today, come back soon.

Dragonfly Dreams Sympathy Card

I have been making a sympathy card for my dear friend Lyndsay who lost her father this week and the beautiful Dragonfly Dreams stamp set and Detailed Dragonfly Thinlit Dies seemed appropriate.

www.crafty-rootes.com – Dragonfly Dreams by Stampin Up

I stamped the gorgeous detailed dragonfly in Night of Navy ink onto a piece of Very Vanilla cardstock and die cut the dragonfly using the co-ordinating Detailed Dragonfly Thinlit Dies – save 10% if you buy them as a bundle until the end of May. I then die cut the filigree dragonfly from Vellum Cardstock and adhered the vellum piece – using Mini Glue Dots – on top of the stamped dragonfly, love the effect of movement this gives. Even a sympathy card deserves a little bling so I added a couple of Basic Rhinestones to the dragonfly’s thorax.

 

www.crfty-rootes.com – Dragonfly Dreams by Stampin’ Up!

I cut a panel of the lovely soft blue paper from the Falling In Love dsp pack and glued it to a Very Vanilla panel using Tombow Liquid Adhesive.  I added ½ a Lace Doily, Very Vanilla side up to the back of this panel, just peeking out. I love that these doilies are Whisper White on one side and Very Vanilla on the reverse. I stamped the sentiment from the Rose Wonder stamp set in Night of Navy ink onto the dsp and added the whole panel to a card base of Night of Navy. The dragonfly was added to the front using Stampin Dimensionals under the thorax to lift it up.

I am really happy with how the card turned out and I hope Lyndsay and her family like it as well.

Custom Tee and T-Shirt Builder go military

Yesterday was my son’s birthday and as he is an Officer Cadet at Sandhurst Military Academy I wanted to make him a card with a military theme. After scratching my head and trying out a few ideas, this is what I have come up with.

www.crafty-rootes.com – Custom Tee by Stampin’ Up!

I decided on the T-Shirt Builder Framelits dies as main element of the card. The regulation issue T-Shirts are a dark brown so I stamped the large T-Shirt from the Custom Tee stamp set in Chocolate Chip ink onto Chocolate Chip cardstock and die cut using the co-ordinating T-Shirts Builder Framelit dies.  Although this looked OK I really wanted to add a camouflage element to the card. So, I got out the ‘splodgy’ stamp from the Perpetual Birthday Calendar stamp set and set to with Chocolate Chip, Crumb Cake, Sahara Sand, Always Artichoke and Wild Wasabi ink and a piece of Very Vanilla cardstock. I also used the oval stamp from the Beetles & Bugs stamp set to add a different texture to the camo. I die cut a T-Shirt using the same die from the stamped panel.

www.crafty-rootes.com – Custom Tee by Stampin’ Up!

I stamped the sentiment from the Designer Tee stamp set in Chocolate Chip ink onto a panel of Very Vanilla cardstock. Both T-Shirts were then mounted onto the Very Vanilla panel, the camouflage one glued on with Tombow Liquid Adhesive and the Chocolate Chip one added over the top with Stampin Dimensionals. A layer of Wild Wasabi was added behind. This whole piece was then layered onto a Crumb Cake card base.

I am pleased with how the card turned out and really hope my son liked it.

Swirly Bird makes a gorgeous congratulations card

Great excitement over the weekend when 2 of my team members promoted to Bronze Elite. I just had to make them a card each and send them a package of goodies to celebrate their achievement.

Over the weekend I came also cameacross a Youtube video by Rose Castillo – https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g9jFRn7S0L8 – using the Swirly Bird stamp set. I have to confess this is a stamp set that I bought last year after I saw so many amazing projects made with it on Pinterest…………and I have never used it! Shame on me…… I loved Rose’s idea of stamping on letters to give them some interest and definition and thought I would give it a go.

www.crafty-rootes.com – Swirly Bird and Large Letters by Stampin’ Up!

For my take on her card I die cut the letters using the Large Letters Framelits Dies and Whisper White cardstock. Using the smallest of the stamps from the Swirly Bird stamp set I added the flowers in Sweet Sugarplum ink, the leaves in Wild Wasabi ink and the stems in Perfect Plum ink. I was really happy with the way they looked. I also die cut 3 more of each of the letters from the Whisper White cardstock and glued them together with Tombw Liquid Adhesive to give a 4 layer stack with the stamped piece on the top. This gives lovely dimension to the letters without the hassle of cutting up Stampin’ Dimensionals.

www.crafty-rootes.com – Swirly Bird stamp set and Large Letter Dies by Stampin’ Up!

I stamped the sentiment from the One Wild Ride stamp set in Versamark ink after using my Embossing Buddy on a Whisper White panel. I covered the sentiment with Copper Embossing Powder and heat set it with my Heat Tool. Love the shine this gives and copper is the nearest we have to a bronze colour.

www.crafty-rootes.com – Swirly Bird Stamp set by Stampin’ Up!

I lined my letters up above the sentiment and stuck them down with a little Tombow Liquid Adhesive. I decided to back the Whisper White panel with a layer of the Copper Foil Paper adding to the luxurious look of the card. The whole topper was then added using Stampin’ Dimensionals to a Crumb Cake card base. I added a Whisper White panel to the inside and stamped the same images down the side of the inner panel and also on the envelope.

I really love the clean and simple look of this card and the pop of shiny copper really works. I am so glad Rose’s video inspired me to use this great stamp set.
