Blooms & Bliss 102 Card

Hi Crafters!

Today I have been requested to make a card for a lovely lady who's turning 102! What an amazing life she must have had so far & how many changes in the world must she have witnessed? I'm still playing with the Blooms & Bliss set lol I just love this paper & colour combo! It's so pretty!


I have used the Large Number Framelits to die cut the 102 & the banner on my Big Shot. I have layered these with a Silver Metallic Doily & a Delicate White Doily plus two layers of the gorgeous Blooms & Bliss Designer Series Paper. I have heat embossed the sentiment & banner with Silver heat emboss powder, Versamark & my Heat Tool. The sentiment is from the Fairy Celebration stamp set. The cardstock base is Thick Whisper White & the envelope is also Whisper White.


I have stamped the inside of the card with Sweet Sugarplum, Blushing Bride & Mint Macaron, which are all coordinating colours from the Blooms & Bliss DSP. The sentiment & images are all from the Number of Years stamp set. I have also stamped the front of the envelope to match - see top photo.

Crazy Crafters Blog Hop with Wendy Cranford - Jars of Love


Hi Crafters!

Some exciting news for you today! It's Blog Hop time!! Today we are CASE-ing (Copy & Selectively Edit) Wendy Cranford, who is also joining us on this hop!

I hope you find great inspiration from all the projects in this hop. You may be starting the hop here at my blog (Jessie Holton) or you may have come from the previous person on the list. Be sure to click on the next person in the list to continue your blog hop adventure casing Wendy's work.

I am so excited to show you Wendy's card & my case!Here's Wendy's card:

http://www.luvinstampin.com/2016/08/jars-of-love-capture-a-lightening-bug.html

Oh I just melted I thought it was so sweet! Here is my case of it & Wendy, I hope I've done you proud! Click here to go to Wendy's blog post for this card & she's also got a YouTube video there for you to watch.


I started off with a Night of Navy cardstock base, layered with Elegant Eggplant & Whisper White. I have sponged the bottom quarter of the Whisper White cardstock with Crumb Cake & the rest of the piece with Daffodil Delight. I have then used the largest splotch from the Gorgeous Grunge stamp set & the stars from the Made with Love stamp set all over the top half with Versamark & set Clear Heat Emboss Powder with my Heat Tool.

Next, I have added the sponged layers of Flirty Flamingo, Elegant Eggplant & Night of Navy up to the top. I have also added the bush in the bottom corner from the Jars of Love stamp set in Crumb Cake. 


For the jar, I have used my Big Shot to die cut the fireflies in Daffodil Delight & the jar  in Whisper White, both stamped with Momento Black. I have also used the jar framelit to cut a Window (acetate) sheet and a piece of Vellum for the back of the jar. I have heat embossed the lid with Gold before die cutting that, too. I have added the fireflies & Gold Sequins (pulled off the Trim) inside the jar & sealed with a single strip from the Foam Adhesive Strips.

I have also heat embossed the Gold sentiment onto Elegant Eggplant & used the Sweetheart punch before layering it with some Flirty Flamingo Ruched Ribbon. And I have added a few dots here & there with the Gold Wink of Stella pen all over the front of the card.


I have also flicked the inside of the card with the Gold Wink of Stella pen & stamped the sentiment in Elegant Eggplant & the bush in Crumb Cake & then sponged over both with Flirty Flamingo. The inside of the card is also layered with Elegant Eggplant & Whisper White cardstock to match the front.

All of these products are from Stampin' Up! and are available on my Online Shop - please see below for the link & more info on how you can get freebies from me.

Father's Day with Guy Greetings

Hi Crafters!

Father's Day came two weeks early at our place this year lol - Dave's lucky I just got the dates mixed up & didn't completely forget! I do have a good reason for that, though... see further below *insert suspense building antics here* :P


I have used the Birthday Fiesta DSP with Tempting Turquoise cardstock & Emerald Envy ink. I have kept this card pretty simple as I really wanted the DSP to shine here, cos Dave is such a fun dad. I have used the now retired Curvy Corner Trio Punch for the corners of the sentiment, which I have propped up on Dimensionals.


I have used the same Tempting Turquoise & Emerald Envy colour combo on the inside, with the 'no one else could fill your shoes' sentiment. I thought this was fitting with my little boy's footprints on the other side. All the Emerald Envy came off in the bath afterwards! And I promise, Luke does have 5 toes on each foot, but he just mustn't have pressed them all down lol so it looks like he's only got 4 :P


And a close up of Luke's adorable little feet!

Now, for the reason I'm forgetting everything & also for being absent on here a month or so ago... I'm now 4 months pregnant with our second bub! I had terrible morning sickness this time around, but luckily it's all passed now, so I'm back on the bandwagon! Expect another MIA in February next year when the new baby comes :)

I have entered this card into the CASology #212 Fun Challenge - cos Dave is so much fun! We really are a lucky little family xx

A World of Thanks for GDP050

Hi Crafters!

Today I have a gorgeous set of cards that I've made using the Global Design Project #050 Challenge layout.

**Warning! I'm in love with the colour combo from the Blooms & Bliss suite!! Sorry if you get sick of them haha! #sorrynotsorry


I've made two cards virtually the same, but with alternating colours. The colours I have used a Sweet Sugarplum, Island Indigo & Mint Macaron. I have used the Blooms & Bliss Cardstock pack for these as it contains 8 sheets of each colour. The two stamp sets I have used are the A World of Thanks background stamp & the sentiment is from the Watercolor Wishes stamp set.

I have also used Mint Macaron Sheer Linen Ribbon & the Bold Butterfly framelits on my Big Shot to cut them out. I have also used the now retired Washi Label Punch for the sentiment.


I have matched the insides using the images & sentiments from the Watercolor Wishes stamp set.

I have created a tutorial for these cards. Subscribe to my YouTube Channel so you get all my tutorials!




I have entered this Island Indigo card into the GDP050 Challenge

 
I have also entered this card into the Crazy Crafters International Blog Highlights. You can see all the entries & vote for your favourites from 6:30pm AEST, Friday 26 August 2016.

Blooms & Bliss Class Projects Made

Hi Crafters!

Today I have a follow up from my previous post with the Blooms & Bliss Class I was teaching. After a couple of last minute cancellations, here are Amy's projects from the class & I think she did a wonderful job! And I just couldn't help putting my new mint mugs into the pics! Don't they match perfectly! Hehe!


Amy chose to make her butterfly card in Island Indigo & Sweet Sugarplum & the window card in Mint Macaron. She has used the cut out on the back of the tag.


And her last card is in Sweet Sugarplum with a Silver Metallic Doily. Those Doilies are just the right size for the card! Doesn't it look pretty!

If you're a local to Clifton Springs, I am having another class next Saturday for the Thoughtful Branches Bundle & I would love to have you there. Please email me for more information. Otherwise, keep an eye out for the pics! I'll share them soon after the class.

Blooms & Bliss Suite Class

Hi Crafters!

Today I have a bunch of cards for you, which I have prepared for my Blooms & Bliss Suite Class that I have on tomorrow. Most of my product list comes from the Blooms & Bliss Suite from page 138-139 of the 2016 Annual Catalog, including the Blooms & Wishes Photopolymer Stamp Set, Mint Macaron Sheer Linen Ribbon, Blooms & Bliss Cardstock Pack (Mint Macaron, Sweet Sugarplum & Island Indigo), Blooms & Bliss Designer Series Paper & the Delicate White Doilies. I have not used any other stamp sets or DSP. I have done a couple of cards in each style with slightly different colours.



I have entered this set of cards into the Crazy Crafters Project Highlights. You can see all the entries & vote for your favourites from 6:30pm AEST tonight, Friday 19 August 2016.

http://www.craftykylie.com/2016/08/crazy-crafters-team-project-highlights_26.html

For this first set, I have used the Mint Macaron & Island Indigo cardstock & DSP. I have used the Bloomin' Heart Thinlits to cut out the lace heart & then I have gone over the top with the Bold Butterfly Thinlits, using a full Butterfly behind & the Bloomin' Heart Butterfly over the top - it is recommended that you use a Precision Plate on your Big Shot for the Bloomin' Hearts Thinlits as they are so delicate.

I have also used the Delicate White Doilies, Fabulous Foil Designer Acetate sheets & Mint Macaron Sheer Linen Ribbon. I have used the now retired Washi Label Punch for the sentiment, which is stamped in Island Indigo. I have stapled the sentiment to the ribbon & some torn DSP.


For this next set, I have used the design from Mojo Monday Sketch Challenge & the colours from Pootles Colour Challenge (particularly the first card). The cardstock colours I have used are Pool Party & Sweet Sugarplum. I have used the now retired White Tea Lace Doilies, which are slightly smaller than the Delicate White Doilies. I love the print I have used for the middle circle, it reminds me of all the cherry blossom trees which are blooming at the moment. I have inked the flowers around the outside in the same colours as the cardstock.


 For this next set, I have used Island Indigo, Sweet Sugarplum & Mint Macaron carstock. I have cut out the center of the cardstock with the Lots of Labels Thinlits & I have used these on the tags below. I have stamped the sentiment with Versamark & used Copper Heat Embossing Powder & the Heat Tool to set it. The leaves are stamped in the same ink colours as the cardstock used. I have stapled. the Mint Macaron Sheet Linen Ribbon & a length of Blushing Bride Sequin Trim - I find stapling ribbon & trim is the easiest & least fussy way to attach them.


Finally, I have some small tags I made with the Lots of Labels thinlits. I have stamped the sentiment in Sweet Sugarplum & the flowers in Mint Macaron, Blushing Bride & Island Indigo. I have also added some Mint Macaron Sheer Linen Ribbon. I have added the hole at the top of the tag with the now retired Curvy Trio Punch but you could get a similar look by using the Scalloped Tag Topper & I think that's what they used for the tags in the Blooms & Bliss Suite photos.


And the back of the tags, so you can see where I used the bits I cut out of the DSP on the above cards. Waste not, want not! This print from the DSP is really pretty & you can recreate it with the stamps that are in the Blooms & Wishes stamp set, although I'd still get the DSP for all the smaller prints, cos I think they're really pretty, too!

Limited Edition Thoughtful Branches BundleI'm in love!! This set is only available 2-31 August or until stocks run out! Not only will you get the monthly free stamp set, but everyone who places an order for this Bundle via my Online Shop also goes in the draw to win a $50 Voucher!
