Delicate thank you card using Touches of Texture

This is a sweet and simple thank you card made using the Touches of Texture stamp set.

I stamped the dainty flower image from the set onto a panel of Very Vanilla cardstock using Early Espresso ink. I coloured the flowers and buds using a So Saffron Marker and the leaves with an Old Olive Marker keeping it as simple as possible.

www.crafty-rootes.com – Touches of Texture by Stampin’ Up!

The Very Vanilla panel was added to a layer of Old Olive cardstock using Tombow Liquid Adhesive. I wrapped some Linen Thread 3 times around the topper and tied in a bow at the front before adding the whole panel  to a So Saffron card base using  Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a sentiment from the Banners For You stamp set in Old Olive ink. To finish the card I added some Old Olive Enamel Shapes from the Brights collection.

I hope you like today’s project.

Eastern Medallions in Lemon Lime Twist and Berry Burst

I am still loving the Eastern Beauty stamp set and co-ordinating Eastern Medallion Framelits , though I haven’t used it in a while – easily distracted by all the other goodies in the new annual catalogue. I have chosen to make some thank you cards using the set today, along with my 2 favourite new in-colors, Lemon Lime Twist and Berry Burst.

www.crafty-rootes.com – Eastern Medallion by Stampin’ Up!

I die cut one of the large medallions from Whisper White cardstock using the Eastern Medallion dies and my Big Shot. I then die cut the medallion using the Layering Circle Framelit dies, love that the 2 die sets work together. I did exactly the same with the inner medallion ring.

www.crafty-rootes.com- Eastern Medallion Dies by Stampin’ Up!

I stamped the sentiment in Berry Burst ink onto a scrap of Whisper White cardstock and die cut it out using the smallest Layering Circle die. I then die cut a circle from Berry Burst cardstock and Lemon Lime Twist cardstock and using Tombow Liquid Adhesive used these to back the large and small parts of the medallion. I love the pop of colour this gives to the image.

www.crafty-rootes.com – Eastern Medallion dies and Eastern Beauty stamp set by Stampin’ Up!

I stuck the largest (Berry Burst) medallion to the front of a Thick Whisper White card base using Tombow then added the Lemon Lime Twist medallion using Stampin’ Dimensionals on top. The sentiment was also added using Stampin Dimensionals for maximum impact.

Such a clean and simple card but so striking. I love it and hope you do as well.

Touches of Texture for a Team Challenge

I made this simple but elegant card for my team challenge this month.  The challenge was to interpret a sketch, something that I find quite difficult to do – sorry I can’t work out how to copy the sketch onto this page – I am not known for my IT skills…..

www.crafty-rootes.com – Touches of Texture – Stampin’ Up!

I chose to use the lovely Touches of Texture stamp set for this card. I stamped the lacy pattern stamp onto Whisper White cardstock using Rose Red ink, this is such a pretty, dainty stamp. The flower spray was stamped in Early Espresso ink and coloured in using a Blender Pen and the Rose Red ink pad and Crumb Cake ink pad.

www.crafty-rootes.com – Touches of Texture – Stampin’ Up!

I stamped the sentiment from the new Crafting Forever stamp set – love this set as well- in Rose Red ink onto a scrap of Whisper White cardstock. I die cut this out using my Big Shot and the Stitched Shapes Framelits and then die cut a scalloped circle from Rose Red cardstock. I adhered the 2 together using Tombow Liquid Adhesive and added them to the stamped piece using Dimensionals having added some Gold Metallic Thread to the back. The whole panel was added to a layer of Early Espresso cardstock, then a layer of Whisper White cardstock. The panel was then added to a Rose Red card base using Dimensionals. I added a Gold Faceted Gem to the circle topper for a bit of bling.

www.crafty-rootes.com – Touches of Texture – Stampin’ Up!

I added a layer of Whisper White cardstock with Tombow Liquid Adhesive to the inside of the card having stamped the pretty lacy image along the bottom in Rose Red ink. I made 6 of these lovely cards to send out to people who have nit managed to get to a class in the last few months – just to say Hi, thinking of you.

This Little Piggy says Thanks

I am loving the new This Little Piggy stamp set, it is absolutely adorable and such fun to use. My upline Mikaela Titheridge  – https://thecraftyoinkpen.co.uk/ – nearly exploded with excitement when this set was demonstrated at Onstage Live in April, our team name is The Stampin’ STYlettes as Mikaela lives in a converted pig sty – this is therefore such an appropriate set for the team. One of my team mates was lucky enough to receive this set in Prize patrol at Onstage Live and for a minute we thought  there might be bloodshed, but luckily Mikaela manged to swap stamps sets with a girl from another team……..

I made this card for Mikaela as a little thank you for all the help and support she has given me over the last 2½ years and especially for her help with a recent order.

www.crafty-rootes.com – This Little Piggy stamp set by Stampin’ Up!

I stamped the adorable little piggy onto a layer of Whisper White cardstock using Archival Basic Black ink. Using an Aquapainter I coloured him in using the Powder Pink ink pad for the body, Blushing Bride ink pad for the snout and shading  and Crumb Cake ink pad for around the snout and the bottom. As I was using regular Whisper White cardstock I was careful to keep the brush as dry as possible and not to go over the image to often to stop the cardstock ‘pilling’. The ground was coloured using the Crumb Cake ink pad and some grassy tufts added in Wild Wasabi ink. I absolutely love him.

www.crafty-rootes.com – This Little Piggy stamp set by Stampin’ Up!

I pondered adding some ribbon at the top of the panel but decided against it and rounded the top left hand corner instead. I added three of the smallest Subtles Enamel Shapes in the Wild Wasabi colour. I really like all the white space on the panel. The stamped piece was added to a layer of Wild Wasabi cardstock using Tombow Liquid Adhesive before being added to a Powder Pink card base using Dimesionals. I added a layer of Whisper White cardstock to the inside of the card and stamped the pig using Powder Pink ink, the sentiment from the set was added in Archival Basic Black ink.

Daisy Delight June Classes

Thank you to the lovely ladies who came to my classes this month. We had a lot of fun making cards using the gorgeous Daisy Delight stamp set and coordinating Daisy Punch. I love the word ‘coordinating’ because I know that Stampin’ Up! will have made the products so easy to use.

www.crafty-rootes.com – Daisy Delight stamp set and daisy Punch by Stampin’ Up!

The 1st card was very straightforward. We randomly stamped the ‘large daisy flower’ 2 or 3 times using Old Olive ink, Calypso Coral ink and Daffodil Delight ink across a panel of Whisper White cardstock 5⅞” by 2½”.  We then added a ½” by 5⅞” strip of Old Olive cardstock to the top and bottom of the stamped panel using Tombow Liquid Adhesive. The sentiment from the Teeny Tiny Wishes stamp set was stamped in Calypso Coral ink onto a Scrap of Whisper White cardstock and punched out using the new Pretty Label Punch. We also punched out a label in Calypso Coral cardstock using the same punch and glued the 2 together using Tombow Liquid Adhesive, leaving a a small border of the Calypso Coral showing. This piece was then added with Tombow to the bottom of the stamped panel and the whole layer added to a Thick Whisper White card base using Dimensionals.

www.crafty-rootes.com – Daisy Delight stamp set and daisy Punch by Stampin’ Up!

For the 2nd card we took a small panel of Whisper White cardstock to stamp a lot of the wild flower images included in the stamp set. The various stems were stamped in Old Olive, Pear Pizzazz or Garden Green and the flowers in Daffodil Delight, Calypso Coral and Berry Burst. Some of the stems and flowers were stamped in 1st,  2nd and 3rd generation ink to give some texture to the piece. We rounded the top left corner of the panel and added it, using Tombow Liquid Adhesive to a layer of Daffodil Delight cardstock having rounded the upper left corner. We stamped the sentiment from the Fabulous Flamingo stamp set in Old Olive ink onto a scrap of Whisper White cardstock and flagged the end either with scissors or using the Triple Banner Punch. We flagged a Scrap piece of Old Olive cardstock and added it with Tombow to the card front with the sentiment overlapping. The stamped panel was then added to the left hand side of the Crumb Cake card base using Dimensionals.

The most complicated thing about the 3rd card was the scoring and folding to get the great pop up diamond shape. My inspiration for this card came from a video by Heidi Smith aka flutterbyheidi – https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JvAK8m5_CcQ&t=307s.

www.crafty-rootes.com – Pop up diamond card template

We took a piece of Thick Whisper White 11” by 4” and using the Stampin’ Trimmer, scored on the long side at 1½”, 3½”. 7½” and 9½” we then slid the cardstock back to 5½” and made a small notch at the top and bottom of the cardstock to mark the mid-point. Using the cutting groove of the Stampin’ Trimmer we lined up the 5½” mark with the bottom 1½” score line and scored a diagonal line joining the two lines and repeated this from the 5½” mark to the top of the 1½” score line. We then repeated this scoring diagonally between the 5½” mark with the 9½” top and bottom. See picture for clarification or watch Heidi’s video. We then folded and burnished the vertical score lines using a Bone Folder, then the diagonal score lines, then folded and burnished the vertical score lines again back on themselves. A gentle push poped out the diamond (for most of the class) hurrah…….. After that decorating was a piece of cake.

www.crafty-rootes.com – Pop up diamond card using Daisy Delight stamp set and punch by Stampin’ Up!

We stamped the large daisy stamp twice using Old Olive ink onto Whisper White cardstock and punched out both daisies using the Daisy Punch. Using a Sponge Dauber, Daffodil Delight ink pad and a non-stick craft mat we sponged a little colour onto the petals of one of the punched daisies before adhering them together, offset, using Tombow glue. When the glue was dry we used a Bone Folder to curl the petals giving dimension to the project. The daisy was then added to a panel of Whisper White cardstock using Tombow and this panel was glued to a piece of Pool Party cardstock leaving a tiny border. The whole piece was then glued to the pop up diamond on the front of the card base. A Gold Faceted Gem was added to the centre of the daisy. We then stamped 2 daisy stems onto a panel of Whisper White cardstock in Old Olive ink and added the flower head in 1st and 3rd generation Daffodil Delight ink and repeated with a 2nd piece of Whisper White. Both of these panels were then added to a layer of Pool Party cardstock using Tombow before adding to the panels on either side of the card base. We finished the project by making an envelope using the Envelope Punch Board.

The ladies all loved this stamp set and I really enjoyed their company at this month’s classes. Oh, and I made some sweet little co-ordinating (there goes that word again) table gifts. Cute aren’t they.

Daisy Delight becomes Cone Flowers

I am sharing a gorgeous card today made using the Daisy Delight stamp set and co-ordinating Daisy Punch.

www.crafty-rootes.com – Daisy Delight stamp set by Stampin’ Up!

I stamped 2 of the large daisy images with Daffodil Delight ink onto a scrap piece of Whisper White cardstock and punched them out with the Daisy Punch. I cut each daisy in half, layered the 2 pieces together using Tombow Liquid Adhesive and turned them into Cone Flowers! Cool huh…….. I stamped 2 daisy flower centres using Chocolate Chip ink and punched then out with the ½” circle punch before adding them to the daisy flowers with Tombow Liquid Adhesive.

www.crafty-rootes.com – Daisy Delight stamp set by Stampin’ Up!

I stamped 2 of the longer flower stems in Old Olive ink onto a panel of Whisper White cardstock and added the cone flowers overhanging the sides. I added a layer of Old Olive cardstock behind the Whisper White panel using Tombow Liquid Adhesive. The sentiment from the At home With You stamp set was stamped in Old Olive ink before  adding the whole panel to a Thick Whisper White card base.

Such a simple, clean looking card, I love it.

Colorful Seasons for a beautiful Summery card

Playing with another new stamp set today it is called Colorful Seasons and as the name suggests it has images which cover the whole year from Spring flowers, through Summer deck chairs, Autumn leaves and Winter snowflakes. What great value for money. There is also a co-ordinating die set called Seasonal Layers which I am not using today.

www.crafty-rootes.com – Colorful Seasons stamp set by Stampin’ Up!

I cut a panel of Whisper White cardstock and stamped the frame of the deckchair from the Colorful Seasons stamp set in Archival Basic Gray ink. Using Sahara Sand ink I stamped the ‘swooshy’ stamp from the Touches of Texture stamp set to give the illusion of ground under the deckchair. I used the ‘kissing technique’ to add the fun pattern to the cloth of the deckchair. To do this I inked up the solid deckchair cloth image in Blushing Bride ink and inked up the intricate floral stamp from the Awesomely Artistic stamp set and ‘kissed’ the 2 together before stamping the deckchair cloth image onto the stamped frame. Absolutely love this effect, it looks fabulous.

www.crafty-rootes.com – Colorful Seasons stamp set by Stampin’ Up!

I stamped the small branch in the upper left hand corner using Sahara Sand ink and added the buds in Watermelon Wonder ink, sadly now retired. I rounded the upper right hand corner of the stamped piece and added it, using Tombow Liquid Adhesive to a layer of Basic Gray cardstock. I stamped the sentiment from the Eastern Beauty stamp set in Watermelon Wonder ink onto a layer of Whisper White cardstock, just over half way up and added the stamped piece on Stampin’ Dimensionals just below. This panel was then added to a card base of Watermelon Wonder cardstock.

Such a cool looking card, all ready for a long hot summer………….we can but dream……

Beautiful You with an Embossing Paste background

When I saw Embossing Paste in the new Stampin’ Up! Annual Catalogue which launched earlier this week I jumped up and down with excitement. This is something I have been dying to try out and I couldn’t wait to get it in my hot little hands on it. Unfortunately it wasn’t available on the demo pre-order – yes, we can get our hands on product a month before our customers – whoop, whoop – perks of being a demonstrator. I planned to use it at our recent team training event so had to borrow another brand from a fellow team member to play with. This is one of the cards I demonstrated at that event.

I cut a piece of Whisper White cardstock 5⅜” by 3⅝” and taped it down, to a non-stick craft mat, on all 4 sides using some washi tape. I then placed my Happy Patterns Decorative Mask over the top and taped it down in the same way; you really don’t want either the cardstock or stencil to move. Next I took a heaped tsp of Embossing Paste from the jar and popped it onto the craft sheet in one corner before adding a couple of drops of Lemon Lime Twist Re-inker and mixing together, all I can say is WOW, it looked fantastic. I didn’t have the proper Embossing Paste Tools so made do with small, cake decorating palette knife and an old credit card.

www.crafty-rootes.com – Beautiful You meets Embossing Paste by Stampin’ Up!

Taking a dollop of the coloured Embossing Paste, I spread it over the stencil, starting at the top of the Whisper White cardstock and scraping it down towards the bottom. I then, carefully lifted away the stencil and set the Whisper White panel aside to dry – it took about 15 mins but I could have sped that up if I had used my Heat Tool.

www.crafty-rootes.com – Beautiful You meets Embossing Paste by Stampin’ Up!

While the Embossing paste was drying I stamped the image from the gorgeous Beautiful You stamp set onto a scrap piece of Whisper White cardstock and onto a scrap piece of Pop of Pink dsp – now sadly retired, but any dsp would work. Using my Big Shot I die cut the Whisper White piece using an oval from the Stitched Shapes Framelits before die cutting a slightly larger scalloped oval from the Layering Oval Framelits from Melon Mambo cardstock. I layered to 2 ovals together using Tombow Liquid Adhesive. Taking a sharp pair of Scissors I trimmed out the dress and the hat from the lady stamped on the scrap of dsp. Using Tombow Liquid Adhesive I added the dress and hat to the Whisper White stamped panel, love the effect this paper piecing gives. I coloured under the brim of the hat with a Lemon Lime Twist Marker and used a Chocolate Chip Marker to colour her hair. I really like using the Calypso Coral Water Color Pencil and a Blender Pen to add a soft skin tone.

www.crafty-rootes.com – Beautiful You meets Embossing Paste by Stampin’ Up!

I took 2 pieces of Whisper White baker’s Twine and attached them to the back of the embossed panel and taped them in place. I brought the ends over the top of the panel and adhered them to the front of the panel using tape where they would be hidden by the oval piece.  Using Tombow Liquid Adhesive, I added the now dry embossed panel to a layer of Lemon Lime Twist cardstock, having used the We Are Memory Keeper Corner Chomper to round the upper left corner of both pieces. The whole panel was then added to a Melon Mambo card base. The sentiment was stamped using Momento Tuxedo Black ink. Finally I placed the oval on Stampin’ Dimensionals over the top of the Whisper White Baker’s Twine ends. Gorgeous, if I say so myself……..

I really enjoyed playing with embossing paste and have loads more ideas to try out.

Daisy Delight for my Mum

It was my Mum’s birthday earlier this week and this is the card I made her using the gorgeous new Daisy Delight stamp set and co-ordinating Daisy Punch.

www.crafty-rootes.com – Daisy Delight stamp set and Daisy Punch

I stamped the large ‘daisy’ image twice on Whisper White cardstock using Berry Burst ink and punched both flowers out using the new co-ordinating Daisy Punch. I layered the daisies, one on top of the other, offset to give a full daisy flower and stuck them together with Tombow Liquid Adhesive. I used my Bone Folder to curl the petals adding dimension to the flower. I added one of the sparkly new Gold Faceted Gems to the centre for a bit of bling.

www.crafty-rootes.com – Daisy Delight stamp set and Daisy Punch

I cut a layer of Chocolate Chip cardstock 5⅛” by 3⅝” and die cut the branch from the Seasonal Layers dies using my Big Shot, making sure that the die was well away from the edges of the panel. I ran a 5” by 3 ½” panel of Whisper White cardstock through the Big Shot with the Petal Burst Embossing Folder and added it to the layer of Chocolate Chip cardstock I had used to die cut the branches. This is a great trick for making the most of our lovely cardstock and no-one will ever know……..except you………. Before adhering the panels I used my WRMK’s Corner Chomper to round the upper right corner of both panels and the card base.

www.crafty-rootes.com – Daisy Delight stamp set and Daisy Punch

I placed my daisy in the lower left hand corner and added the branches behind, trimming them down until I was happy with the look. I thought it still needed something so rummaged through my spare die cut leaves and found 2 from the Botanical Builders dies cut from Wild Wasabi cardstock and again cut them apart to fill the space around the daisy. When I was happy with the placement I carefully glued everything down using Tombow Liquid Adhesive leaving the flower until last. Finally I stamped the sentiment from the At Home With You stamp set in Berry Burst ink on a scrap of Whisper White cardstock and trimmed it out using scissors.

www.crafty-rootes.com – Daisy Delight stamp set and Daisy Punch

I was really happy with this card but thought I would try making it using a more open embossed background. I chose the new Oh My Stars Embossing Folder and also changed the leaves by stamping the leaf from the Daisy Delight stamp set in 1st and 2nd generation Wild Wasabi ink. Let me know which one you like better.
