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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Sunshine Wishes meets Jar of Love for an Anniversary Card

Today I am sharing a sweet card I made for my lovely friends, Lyndsay and Richard celebrating their wedding anniversary. I wanted to use the Sunshine Wishes dies for this card and teamed it up with the Jar of Love stamp set and Every Day Jars dies.

I used Thick Whisper White cardstock for my card base and burnished the crease using my Bone Folder. I cut a Whisper White cardstock panel 5” by 3⅜” and a Berry Burst cardstock panel 5¼” by 3⅝” and layered them together using Tombow Liquid Adhesive.

I die cut the gorgeous open heart shape using my Big Shot and the Sunshine Wishes dies from a piece of Whisper White cardstock and added it to the prepared panel using dots of Tombow Liquid Adhesive I then coated it with Clear Wink of Stella to add some glitter to the card.

I stamped the double flower from the Jar of Love stamp set in Fresh Fig ink and So Saffron ink using the 2nd or 3rd generation for the solid base layer and 1st generation for the detail on top. I stamped the smaller individual flower in Berry Burst ink, Dapper Denim ink and Powder Pink ink before die cutting all the flowers using the Every Day Jars dies. The leaves were stamped in the gorgeous Lemon Lime Twist ink and die cut in the same way. I then had a happy time arranging my flowers and leaves before adhering them down with Tombow Liquid Adhesive.

I stamped the sentiment from the Teeny Tiny Wishes stamp set in Berry Burst ink on a scrap piece of Whisper White cardstock and trimmed it out, flagging the end, using scissors. To finish off I added Basic Pearls to each flower centre and a scattering of pearls around the heart.

I am really happy with the card, it is so delicate and fresh looking and I hope Lyndsay and Richard like it.

Seaside theme for a Stamp-a-Stack

Thank you to the lovely ladies who joined me for my summer themed Stamp-a-Stack event this weekend. We had such a good time and made so many lovely cards.

All the projects for the day were seaside themed to get us into the mood for the fore-casted high temperatures later this week. On arrival each lady was given a clear wallet containing a pack of By the Shore dsp, 20 card bases in a variety of co-ordinating colours, a pack of Metallic Enamel Shapes, 20 Very Vanilla Envelopes and packets of pre-cut card stock layers to make each card. Mind you we all had a good laugh when we realised that I had only put 10 card bases in each pack………definitely a muppet moment. Luckily I only live 3 minutes away and was able to nip home and grab more cardstock to cut and score the missing bases.

As always the day whizzed by so quickly. Here is a picture of some of the ladies hard at work and of some of the projects they made.

Birthday Blooms – Tiled

Earlier this week I saw an amazing technique video on Youtube. It was posted by Tami White of stampwithtami.com. In the video Tami uses the What I Love stamp set, which is one of the Sale-A-Bration sets available for free with a £45 order in my online store until the 31stMarch. She stamps these lovely flowers onto a sheet of small stickers to give a tiled effect. The card she made looked amazing and I couldn’t wait to try the technique for myself.

I chose to use the beautiful Birthday Blooms stamp set for my card. I stamped the large rose image using Archival Black Ink onto a panel of stickers. I learnt the hard way that you need to leave this for at least 15 minutes to dry otherwise it will smear. Even then I tried hard not to touch the mage with my hands whilst colouring as the moisture on the skin can cause smudging.

Stampin Up! Birthday Blooms stamp set

I coloured in my images using the retired Stampin Up! Blendabilities but you could use Stampin Write Markers or a Blender pen and inkpads. I would not advise using an aqua painter as the label sticker backing sheet holds the water and everything runs …… trust me, I tried it and the result was not attractive.

1-DSCF7507
Stampin Up! Birthday Blooms

I coloured the first image using the Pink Pirouette and Wild Wasabi Blendabilities and mounted the tiled panel onto a piece of Pink Pirouette cardstock, then onto a card base of Thick Whisper White cardstock. The sentiment comes from the Teeny Tiny Wishes stamp set.

The second image is coloured using the Soft Sky and Wild Wasabi Blendabilities and mounted the tiled panel onto a piece of Marina Mist cardstock, then onto a card base of Thick Whisper White cardstock. The sentiment again, comes from the Teeny Tiny Wishes stamp set.

For the third card I changed the orientation to portrait and used the darker, Rich Razzleberry Blendabilities along with the previously used Wild Wasabi Blendabilities. I mounted the tiled panel onto Rich Razzleberry cardstock and added two strips of the Gold Glitter Tape which is another Sale-A-Bration item.

I love this technique; it looks amazing but is actually quite simple to do. I hope you like the projects.

Don’t forget Sale-A-Bration ends on the 31St March, so if you would like the what I Love stamp set or the Glitter tape, or indeed any of the other items go to my online shop at http://www.stampinup.net/esuite/home/crafty-rootes and hit the ‘shop now’ button. You can pick one free item for every £45 you spend.

Looking forward to seeing you again.

New Year Irresistible cards

Well, Christmas is over and the New Year is rapidly approaching. This year a group of us are gathering at a friend’s house to see in the New Year with a pot luck supper. Even better, we all live in the village so no one needs to drive. Happy Days…

To mark the occasion I decided to make each couple a New Year card.

1-DSCF7243

In my stash, I found some Irresistibly Yours dsp from the 2015, Sale-a-Bration brochure and although this dsp is now retired, you could substitute a pattern from the Color Me irresistible Specialty dsp, found on page142 in the annual catalogue. This lovely paper is amazingly versatile as it can be sponged, spritzed, water coloured or inked in any colour to match your project.

I chose the starry pattern for my cards as this reminded me of fireworks and long nights. I sponged each piece of dsp in either Soft Sky, Pool Party, Pear Pizzazz, Rich Razzleberry or Calypso Coral ink using Stampin sponges. I then stamped the sun image from the Kinda Eclectic stamp set with Crushed Curry ink. Using a piece of kitchen towel I wiped over the inked and stamped dsp to remove the excess ink from the embossed areas, revealing the glossy white stars.

1-DSCF7244

I die cut the 2016 using the Little Numbers Thinlits and Gold or Black Glimmer cardstock and added the HAPPY from the Crazy For You stamp set.

I mounted the dsp onto and added the panel to Thick Whisper White cardstock bases with dimensionals. Inside the card I stamped the happy new year greeting from the Teeny Tiny Sentiments stamp set. I tamped the sun image from the Kinda Eclectic stamp set inside each card and on the envelope as a finishing touch.

I am really happy with the cards, love the colours and a sparkly glimmer paper numbers. Really hope my friends like them. I hope you all have a happy and healthy New Year
