Label Me Pretty & Delightfully Detailed


Hi Crafters!

Today I thought I'd show you some cards using the Delightfully Detailed Note Cards with the Delightfully Detailed Laser Cut Designer Series Paper (DSP) which is Vanilla on one side & White on the other, so it's really versatile. It comes as a 12"x12" sheet & you cut it up into card fronts & strips. I've used the Vanilla side to match the Note Cards. The sentiments use the Label Me Pretty stamp set & Pretty Label Punch.

This first one has Gold Edged Ribbon (Vanilla) & Mint Macaron Ink on the sentiment. The backgrounds of the Note Cards come with the watercolour printed on them. They are really beautiful!


This one uses Black Glittered Organdy & Blackberry Bliss ink. I've also used the 1-3/4" Circle Punch.


This one uses Gorgeous Grape Striped Ribbon & Gorgeous Grape ink.


This last one is on a Whisper White Note Card. I have used on of the Delightfully Detailed DSP card fronts as a mask & sponged Grapefruit Grove over the top. I've then flipped the mask over & used it on my This Little Piggy card shown recently. I've also used the Grapefruit Grove Ribbon. I accidentally did a Vanilla sentiment... how's your OCD going? :P xx

Natures Inkspirations Challenge #NIC010 - Tranquil Textures


Hi Crafters!

Today I'm playing along with the 'textures' theme over on the Natures Inkspirations Challenge #10 on Facebook. You can click here to request to join the group - https://www.facebook.com/groups/NaturesINKspirationsChallenges

I'm entering the cards I made as part of the Tranquil Textures suite of samples for my recent Stamp Camp. And boy, do they have some lovely texture going on! I have cased these cards from a tutorial by NZ Demo, Jacque Williams.


I have used a Balmy Blue base with a layer embossed with the Swirls & Curls embossing folder - new from the Holiday Catalog. Then another layer of Balmy Blue & a thinner layer of DSP. I have also used the Sea of Textures stamps & Under the Sea Dies. The sentiment is cut with the Classic Label Punch. I have used cardstocks in Tranquil Tide, Soft Sea Form, Fresh Fig & Crumb Cake.


This top card uses the embossing folder the right way out & the bottom card uses it inverted. I really like the different textures you get just by flipping the piece over. The top card used the netting die cut & the Braided Linen Trim, while the bottom one uses Copper Trim, left alone for the bow & pulled apart for the netting. I have also added some of the Tranquil Textures Sprinkles to both cards as bubbles & I think I will be sticking these on everything lol I love them!


Here's the Natures Inkspirations Challenge #10 texture theme picture:

Stampin Dreams Sept Blog Hop - Favourite Technique - Blends - This Little Piggy


Hi Crafters!

Today I'm hopping along with the Stampin' Dreams Crew & we are showing you our favourite techniques. I have been having lots of fun learning how to use the Blends, so I thought I'd show you some samples of the This Little Piggy cards I made for my recent Stamp Camp. Everyone got a Petal Pink Blends Combo (light & dark) & a Granny Apple Green Blends Combo (light & dark). I'm relatively new to adult colouring & I've never used alcohol markers before the Blends, but these are so beautiful & easy to use!

These first two card bases use the light of the two colours to draw stripes on the background. We have used the Petal Pink & Silver Bakers Twine for the bows. All these samples use Whisper White Notecards.


All the pigs are stamped with Momento on Thick Whisper White cardstock. You need to remember that opposites attract when mixing products. Blends are alcohol based, so you need to use a waterbased ink. Likewise, when using watercolour, you need to use an alcohol based ink. If you use same with same, everything will blend. I have started with the lightest colour, added shadow & details with the darker colour & then blended with the lighter colour.


Here are some samples using the Tropical Escape Designer Series Paper. This is a 6"x6" stack.



Here is my 'happy as a pig in mud' sample, using the Swirls & Curls embossing folder on Soft Suede cardstock. This is a new embossing folder from the Holiday Catalog.


And our 3D project 'this little piggy goes to market', uses the Wood Words stamp set & Wood Crate dies, cut on Wood Textures DSP. I have used the 1-1/8" Scallop Punch in Petal Pink cardstock for the sign, which is on a toothpick. Tear & Tape adhesive works best putting these together. And I think they fit in the Gusseted Bags, but I don't have any at present.


The little crate holds three Ferrero Rochers... I'm not sure what happened to my third one though...


And lastly, a little sample using the Delightfully Detailed Notecards & Delightfully Detailed Laser Cut DSP, with the pig stamped in Petal Pink ink & the Petal Pink ribbon from the Metallic Combo Pack for an easy but pretty card!
