Happiest of Days – Team Training

Today I am sharing one of the cards which my team will be making at our Team Training session today. It was inspired by a card I saw on Pinterest designed by one of my German demonstrator colleagues Cornelia Janssen. I loved the simplicity of her card. I have to admit I completely missed the Happiest of Days stamp set when I looked through the catalogue; luckily one of my lovely ladies (thank you Ola) ordered it……..as soon as I saw it I knew I had to have it. I love the unfussy images which are great for colouring.

For my version I took a piece of Whisper White cardstock 5⅜” by 3⅝” and stamped randomly all over it using the cake image and Momento Tuxedo Black ink. Using my Lemon Lime Twist and Bermuda Bay ink pads and a Blender Pen I coloured in part of each cake, concentrating the colour on the right hand side of each image. I love these 2 colours together; they look so fresh and summery.

I mounted the whole stamped panel onto a layer of Lemon Lime Twist cardstock 5½” by 3¾” using Tombow Liquid Adhesive. I liked the look but felt the panel still needed something extra. So, I took a scrap of Night of Navy cardstock approx. 6” by ¾”and punched it using the Decorative Ribbon Border Punch. I added it to the left side of the panel with the small scallop edge showing and trimmed off the excess with my Scissors. I really felt the Night of Navy grounded the panel. I love that we have a couple of new border punches in the new catalogue.

Carrying on with the Night of Navy I took another scrap of cardstock, wiped it over with my Embossing Buddy before stamping the sentiment using Versamark ink. I covered the ink with White Embossing Powder and melted it using the Heat Tool. I trimmed the piece down and flagged the end using the Banner Triple Punch before adding the piece to the front of the stamped panel.

The whole piece was then added to a Thick Whisper White card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I love it, love the simplicity, the colours and summery feel of this card. Hope you like it.

Bloomin’ Love for 2 gorgeous rustic style wedding cards

I was lucky enough to be invited to 2 weddings over the last few days, how fortunate am I, love a wedding. Both couples had a rustic theme, kraft cardstock, very vanilla and a pop of colour. With that ‘natural look’ in mind I made a wedding card for each couple.

Both cards are very similar and start with a Crumb Cake card base. Next I took a Crumb Cake panel 5” by 3¼”and stamped randomly all over the upper two thirds in Crumb Cake ink using many of the small images from the Bloomin’ Love stamp set to create the effect I wanted and I was really happy with the result.

www.crafty-rootes.com – Bloomin’ Love by Stampin’ Up!

I took a small piece of Very Vanilla cardstock 3¼” by 2”and ran it through the Big Shot using the Ruffled Dynamic Textured Embossing Folder, love the effect this gives, and added it to the lower third of the panel with Tombow Liquid Adhesive. I added the whole piece to a Very Vanilla panel 5⅛” by 3⅜” then to a piece of Night of Navy cardstock 5¼” by 3½” to match the colours the bride had chosen for her theme. I used some of the lovely soft Very Vanilla Lace Ribbon to tie into a bow around the topper which gives the card a more finished look, tying the top and the bottom together.

www.crafty-rootes.com – Bloomin’ Love by Stampin’ Up!

The whole piece was added to the Crumb Cake card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals. The sentiment from the Dragonfly Dreams stamp set was stamped in Night of Navy ink onto a scrap of Very Vanilla cardstock and trimmed with scissors. It was added to the card front using Tombow Liquid Adhesive.

www.crafty-rootes.com – Bloomin’ Love by Stampin’ Up!

For the second card I substituted Old Olive ink and cardstock instead of the Night of Navy and added an extra Very Vanilla cardstock panel between the topper and the Crumb Cake card base.

I was really happy with the way the cards turned out, I hope you like them.

Banners for You makes lovely anniversary cards

It is my brother and sister-in-laws’ wedding anniversary later this week and today I am sharing the card I made for them using the Banner For You stamp set. My inspiration came from a card I saw on Youtube, designed and demonstrated by the very talented Dena Rekow  – click on this link https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=J1 to see her original project. I have changed the card base and the colour palette used for my version.

I cut the 2nd largest Lots of Labels die from Whisper White cardstock using my Big Shot machine. Onto this Whisper White piece I stamped the flowers, randomly using Flirty Flamingo ink. I then added the leaves in Pear Pizzazz ink and the little circles in Wisteria Wonder ink. To fill in the gaps I stamped the cluster of 3 dots using Peakaboo Peach ink. Love these colours together, they look so fresh and summery.

www.crafty-rootes.com – Banners For You stamp set by Stampin’ Up!

I stamped the banner image in Pear Pizzazz ink before stamping the words onto the banner image and running it through the Big Shot with the co-ordinating Bunch of Banners framelits.

I ran a layer of Pear Pizzazz cardstock through the Big Shot using the Ruffled Dynamic Texture Impressions Embossing Folder to give it some dimension. These dynamic textured impressions folders are fabulous, they add such a wow factor to a project.

www.crafty-rootes.com – Banners For You stamp set by Stampin’ Up!

To assemble the card I used a Thick Whisper White card base and added the embossed Pear Pizzazz layer to the front using Tombow Liquid Adhesive. I layered the stamped label on top using Stampin’ Dimensionals with the banner added on top with another layer of Stampin’ Dimensionals. Love the clean and fresh look of this card. In fact I loved it so much that I made another version for my cousin and his wife who also celebrate their anniversary later this week. Let’s hope both couples like their cards. Which colour combo do you prefer?

Crafting Forever Pot of Brushes

I am loving the Crafting Forever stamp set from the new Annual Catalogue. There are so many fab images for all the crafty people in my life; I can see I am going to get a lot of use from this set.

I stamped the pot of brushes in Momento Tuxedo Black onto a piece of Whisper White cardstock and stamped the pot onto a piece of the Color Theory dsp and cut it out using sharp scissors.

www.crafty-rootes.com – Crafting Forever by Stampin’ Up!

Using Bermuda Bay, Perfect Plum, Rose Red, Crushed Curry, Pacific Point, Crumb Cake & Smoky Slate ink pads and a Blender Pen I coloured in all the brushes. I love how bright and colourful the image looked when finished. I added the paper pieced dsp pot to the stamped pot using Tombow Liquid Adhesive. And added some ‘ground’ beneath the pot using Crumb Cake ink and the Blender Pen.

I rounded the upper left corner before adding this layer to a piece of Bermuda Bay cardstock, with a rounded upper left corner, using Tombow Liquid Adhesive before adding the panel to a Thick Whisper White card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I rounded the upper left hand corner of the card base as well.  To finish off I added some Brights Enamel Shapes.

Love the fun colours in this card, so fresh. Hope you like it as much as I do.

Sneak Peek – Fabulous Flamingo

Whilst I was at Onstage Live in Amsterdam earlier this month I won a new stamp set called Fabulous Flamingo in a prize patrol. I have to admit, my first thought was ‘what on earth am I going to do with this’. I think my team mates were having very similar thoughts as well………..So today I got the Fabulous Flamingo stamp set out and started to play.

When I have a new stamp set I usually ink up all of the images and stamp them onto scrap paper or the fantastic Stampin’ Up! Grid Paper. This lets me see what the images look like and how they fit together, especially if the image is made of multiple layers. It took me a while to work out how the flamingo builds up and the various options available. Then I was ready to make a card.

www.crafty-rootes.com – Fabulous Flamingo by Stampin’ Up!

The first card was pretty straightforward. I stamped the ‘feathery outline’ image from the stamp set using Soft Suede ink onto a panel of Very Vanilla cardstock. I then inked up the ‘solid body’ image with Crushed Curry Ink, stamped it once on my Grid Paper and then onto the ‘feathery image’ give a paler golden shade.  Next I covered the legs of the ‘full flamingo’ image with a post it note, inked up the main body part with the Crushed Curry ink, I didn’t want yellow legs! I removed the post it note and stamped the image, full strength over the top of the images I have previously stamped. I then stamped the separate ‘leg’ image in Soft Suede ink. The flamingo was now complete and looked great.

www.crafty-rootes.com – Fabulous Flamingo by Stampin’ Up!

I added the water using Marina Mist ink, reeds using Garden Green ink and the leafy bough using Crumb Cake ink. I layered the stamped panel onto a strip of Delightful Dijon cardstock using Tombow Liquid Adhesive I took a Crumb Cake card base and stamped the ‘leaf’ image down the right hand side using Crumb Cake ink before adding the Flamingo panel using Stampin’ Dimensionals! It looked a little plain so, I added Clear Wink of Stella to the body of the Flamingo after all, everything looks better with a bit of bling.

Check back to see what else I make with this set, I have some great ideas.

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!

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.

Beautiful You for February Classes

Thank you to the lovely ladies who came to my classes this month. We had a great time using the fantastic Beautiful You stamp set with the three gorgeous ladies.

The colour palette I chose was influenced by a card we made at our January team training session. I loved the Daffodil Delight, Melon Mambo and Bermuda Bay colour combination. So bright and summery for these cold and gloomy days.

www.crafty-rootes.com – Stampin’ Up! – Beautiful You

For the first card we used the lovely Water Colour Pencils along with the Blender Pen to colour in the lady. I chose to add a sentiment from the Weather Together stamp set as ‘wishing you brighter days’ seemed to go so well with the image of the lady with her umbrella.

www.crafty-rootes.com – Beautiful You – Stampin’ Up!

The ‘dancing lady’ was stamped onto Shimmery White cardstock as we were going to water colour using ink and an Aqua Painter and the Shimmery White stands up to the water better than regular Whisper White.

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

One of the ladies said the third lady reminded her of the stunning Audrey Hepburn and I have to say I agree. This lady was paper pieced, another fab technique, using a piece of the Bermuda Bay dsp from the Brights Paper Stack. The background was created using the Star mask from the Hearts and Stars Decorative Masks. Gorgeous.

I loved all three cards this month, these ladies are so elegant.

Thank you so much for visiting my blog today, come again soon.

A Whimsical Moon Baby

I have been itching to play with the Moon Baby Stamp set from Stampin’ Up! ever since I spotted it in the Spring/Summer catalogue. There are some really cute images in the set and I knew I would love colouring them in. Let me tell the set didn’t disappoint.

www.crafty-rootes.com- Moon Baby – Stampin’ Up!I started with a Shimmery White cardstock layer and stamped the gorgeous baby sleeping on the moon image using the Momento Tuxedo Black ink pad. I added the sentiment from the same stamp set in the right hand corner using the same ink pad and stamped a scattering of little stars around the baby image.

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

I used an Aquapainter and the inkpads to watercolour the images opting for Delightful Dijon and Daffodil Delight for the moon and stars. Marina Mist for the babygro, Crumb Cake for the baby’s hair and Blushing Bride for his skin. I added some Gold Wink of Stella to some of the stars for a little extra shimmer.

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

The stamped layer was added using Tombow liquid adhesive to a panel of Marina Mist cardstock which was then added to a Delightful Dijon layer. This whole topper was then added on dimensionals to a Thick Whisper White card base.

Love the card……..now I need to find someone having a baby boy that I can give it to.

Lift Me Up for a birthday

I have been making a birthday card today for a friend using the Lift Me Up stamp set from the new Spring/Summer catalogue. I wanted a very clean cut look using some sort of watercolouring technique. After a bit of trial and error this card is what I came up with. 

www.crafty-rootes.com – Stampin’ Up! – Lift Me Up stamp set

I took acrylic block H and pressed it into a So Saffron inkpad making sure that it was well covered with the ink. I then spritzed the inky block lightly with a Stampin’ Spritzer filled with water. I stamped the inky, wet block onto a piece of Thick Whisper White cardstock leaving it for about 10 seconds to allow the ink to soak into the cardstock. I left the panel for 10 minutes to dry, it was too dark. So I sprayed the acrylic block with water again, luckily I hadn’t cleaned it, and stamped it down onto another Thick Whisper White panel and left it to dry.  This was much better. 

www.crafty-rootes.com – Lift Me Up Stamp set – Stampin’ Up!

The medium balloon was then stamped in Chocolate Chip ink onto Whisper White cardstock and die cut using a Big Shot and the co-ordinating Up & Away Framelit Dies. The smallest balloon was stamped in Perfect Plum and Melon Mambo and die cut using the smallest balloons from the same die set. The sentiment from the Designer Tee stamp set – 1 of the Sale-A-Bration items available until 31st March with a £45 order – was stamped in Chocolate Chip ink. The whole panel was added to a piece of Chocolate Chip cardstock with Tombow Liquid Adhesive. This piece was then added to a Thick Whisper White panel using Dimensionals.
