Month: December 2017

Party Panda’s are here and ready to PARTY…….

Happy birthday Party Panda's

The Party Panda’s stamp set is Fab..U..Lous, so quirky and cute……I love it. As a demonstrator we get to order new product a month before the new catalogues go live, such a great perk. My pre order arrived on Friday and I couldn’t wait to start stamping with the Party Panda stamp set. This fab set will be available for free with a £45 order from the 2nd of January and there are lots of other items to choose from.

I started with a panel of Whisper White cardstock 4½” by 3¼” and stamped the sweet Panda with a Balloon using Momento Tuxedo Black ink. I stamped the sentiment from the same set using Real Red ink.

I coloured the balloon in using the light Cherry Cobbler Stampin’ Blends pen and added some depth with the dark Cherry Cobbler pen. I used the colour lifter pen to add a ‘light’ spot to the balloon.  I rounded the upper right corner with a Corner Rounder to add some interest.

I took a Real Red card base and added a 5⅞” by 1½” strip of Basic Black cardstock using Tombow Liquid Adhesive. I added the stamped panel using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I stamped the same Panda onto a panel of Whisper White cardstock 5⅝” by 3⅞” and added it to the inside of the card. I stamped the same image on a Whisper White Envelope to finish off the card.

That Panda is so cute, love it.

Rich Razzelberry Season Like Christmas

Multiple layered Christamas tree card

Today I have used the Season Like Christmas stamp set for a quirky last minute seasonal card.

I started with a panel of Whisper White cardstock panel 4⅛” by 4”. I stamped the ‘solid’ Christmas tree image using Old Olive Ink. I then over stamped it with the more ‘detailed’ tree image in Garden Green ink for a bit of depth. I then stamped the ‘tree trunk’ image in Early Espresso Ink. I love the way these three images work together to give a 3 dimensional look to the tree.

I added the ‘ground’ using 1st and 2nd generation Crumb Cake ink. For a final touch I added the sweet little star from the set in Crushed Curry ink onto the top of the tree.

I added a ½” strip of Gold Glimmer paper to either side of the stamped panel using Tombow Liquid Adhesive. Taking a 5⅞” by ¼” strip of Old Olive cardstock and stamped the sentiment from the Teeny Tiny Wishes stamp set onto the strip using Old Olive ink. I glued this strip to a card base of Rich Razzelberry cardstock and added the stamped panel using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Christmas projects

Thank you to all the lovely ladies who came to the Adult Education Christmas classes in November and December. They made a gorgeous Book fold box with pockets to hold the cards, tags and envelopes they made during the day.

There were 4 project tables set up and the ladies moved from table to table during the day making 2 cards and 2 tags at 3 of the tables and the Book style wrapper and pockets at the 4th table.

Here are the projects they made.

Picture Perfect Birthday for a Bookmark Challenge

Pretty Bookmark style tag

Picture Perfect Birthday stamp set makes lovely bookmarks ready to be inserted into the Spring/Summer Catalogues. I made the bookmark/tag as part of a business challenge set by my lovely upline Mikaela. This stamp set will be available in the new Spring/Summer 2018 catalogue from the 3rd January 2018.

I started with a piece of Whisper White cardstock 5½” by 2”. I punched one end of the cardstock using the Scalloped Tag Topper Punch before stamping the sentiment using Momento Tuxedo Black ink towards the bottom of the tag. I used the Stamp-a-ma-jig Stamp Positioning Tool to make sure I got it straight……always a challenge for me!

Business card and tag idea
www.crafty-rootes.com – Picture Perfect Birthday stamp set by Stampin’ Up!

I mounted the ‘bow’ image onto an Acrylic Block B and the ‘bow shadow’ image onto another Acrylic Block B and began stamping from the bottom up to the top using the following ink colours: Peakaboo Peach, Marina Mist, Pear Pizzazz, Flirty Flamingo, Daffodil Delight, Berry Burst, Bermuda Bay, Rich Razzelberry, Lemon Lime Twist. I inked up each colour, stamped it off onto my Grid Paper then stamped the 2nd generation ink onto the bookmark – every colour that is with the exception of the Berry Burst where I forgot…..ooops.

I inked the ‘bow shadow’ image in the same ink and stamped it full strength to give some dimension to the image. I really liked the soft colours for this book mark.

Multicoloured Bookmark business card idea

To finish I cut a piece of Berry Burst cardstock and a piece of Daffodil Delight cardstock to 5½” by 2” and punched one end of each using the Scalloped Tag Topper Punch. I adhered the Daffodil Delight tag to the back of the stamped piece, slightly off set, using Tombow Liquid Adhesive. The Berry Burst piece was then added in the same way and off set to the other side. I then glued on a business card with my details on it. I added a piece of Silver Metallic Edged Ribbon through the hole at the top and tied it together with a bow made from the Silver ⅛” Ribbon.

Happy with they way this turned out, now to make lots more ready to insert into my new catalogues when they arrive.
