Congratulations Card with Pansy Punch Vellum Flowers

Wouldn’t it be nice to go to the mailbox and instead of finding a bill, you found a card from someone telling you you’re great?  Sometimes women aren’t great at taking a compliment but I think a card is always accepted gratefully.

This is a congratulations card I made for one of my team members to celebrate her recent achievements.  Is it strange that I get so much more excited when my friends achieve their goals than I do for mine?

Stampin' Up! Congratulation Card by Angela Sargeant

I’ve been playing a lot recently with vellum flowers and this is another way that I’ve used them, by layering them onto plain white cardstock.

Close up of vellum flowers by Angela Sargeant

You can see how they look unlayered on another card I made using Stampin’ Up!’s Pansy Punch in a previous post.  And also see lots of vellum flowers layered on top of each other in a vintage style birthday card using Stampin’ Up!’s Blossom punch.

So back to today’s card, here’s how to make this card:

1.  Starting with the patterned paper, cut a piece of Modern Medley patterned paper to measure 13.8cm x 9.5cm.  Then stamp on the right hand half of the card with the leaves images from the Peaceful Petals stamps using Pool Party ink.

2.  Cut a piece of regular smooth Pool party cardstock to measure 14.2cm x 9.8cm and adhere the stamped patterned paper on top of it.  And adhere this whole piece onto a piece of 21cm x 14.8cm Pool Party Core’dinations cardstock which has been folded in half to form your base card.  I used Stampin’ Dimensionals (foam dots) to do this.

3.  Cut a piece of white cardstock to measure 7.8cm x 2.7cm then stamp the greeting “Congratulations” using Pool Party ink.  Then edge the piece of white card by dragging the Pool Party marker around the edges.

4.  Cut a piece of Pool Party Core’dinations cardstock to measure 8.5cm x 3.4cm and adhere your stamped greeting to the top using Stampin’ Dimensionals (foam dots) then do the same to the whole centrepiece, adhering it to the centre of your card as shown in the photo.

5.  Punch out three vellum flowers as shown in the photo below.

Vellum and Stampin' Up! Pansy Punch

6.  Punch out another three flowers using plain white cardstock and adhere the vellum flowers to the white cardstock flowers with a Stampin’ Dimensional (foam dot) under the gold dot to hide the adhesive.

7.  Again using Stampin’ Dimensionals, adhere your flowers around your card as shown in the photo.

8. Place a self adhesive Jumbo Pearl to the centre of a blue button and using Glue Dots, adhere that to the bottom of your card.  Add a medium sized self adhesive pearl to either side of the larger pearl/button to finish off your card.

Teenage Boy Birthday Card

A little change of pace from my usual girly cards!  With twin sons, I often have some masculine birthday cards to make.  This week though being tired after a horrible virus, I felt my “teen boy cards creativity” was asleep but I had to get the card made asap.  What to do?  I was flicking through the Stampin’ Up! Catalogue for some inspiration and I found a card I loved on page 53 so I decided to copy that.  Here’s the card I made, it’s almost identical to the one in the catalogue but instead of putting an image of a football in the centre, I’ve put the “13″ for the age of the birthday boy.  I have to say I was very happy to see that the number stamps I had were not only a perfect fit but also looked like they were made for the other stamp I used them with.

Stampin' Up! Teenage Birthday card

So there’s a little idea for you, if you’re feeling like your creativity is a bit asleep at the moment, have a look through the Stampin’ Up! catalogue, you just might find something to copy and get you going again.  Of course I did happen to have the products needed (although I changed the colours slightly) but there’s no reason you can’t copy the layout or colour combination as a starting point.

Quick instructions on how to make this teenage both birthday card:

1. Stamp the wings image from Great Sport stamp set in Marina Mist ink on Very Vanilla cardstock, and then stamp (at least the top part) again with Early Espresso on another piece of cardstock.

2.  Die cut the blue image by placing the cardstock onto the Big Shot along with the large die from the Apothecary Accents and run it through to cut it out.

3.  Hand cut the little stars from the image stamped in Early Espresso and adhere them to the main image with Stampin’ Dimensionals (foam dots) which you cut down to fit behind the stars.

4.  Punch out a circle with the 1 3/8″ circle punch and the Wild Wasabi cardstock and adhere it to the centre of your stamped image.

5.  Stamp the “1″ and “3″ (or whatever birthday it is) with the Memorable Moments stamp set and Early Espresso ink then cut the numbers out.  Adhere to the circle with Stampin’ Dimensionals (foam dots).

6.  Stamp the banner image in Early Espresso on a scrap piece of paper then stamp over the top the Happy Birthday greeting with Marina Mist.  I used a clearmount stamp which made it very easy but if you have woodmount you might want to use a stamp-a-ma-jig to help with placement.

7. Put your greeting through the Big Shot with the Bitty Banners framelit dies to cut it out then adhere to your card with Stampin’ Dimensionals (foam dots).

8.  Cut a piece of Modern Medley patterned paper to be a bit bigger than your centrepiece.  Using a sponge dauber, sponge around the edges with some Crumb Cake ink to ‘vintage up’ the edges.

9.  Cut a piece of Marina Mist cardstock to be a little taller than your ‘newsprint’ paper (as shown in the photo) and adhere the newsprint paper to the Marina Mist cardstock.  Do the same with some Crumb Cake cardstock so that you have a border of blue and crumb cake at the top and bottom of your newsprint paper.  Rough up the edges of the Crumb Cake cardstock with a distressing tool (or your thumb nail!).  Adhere your centrepiece to your layered papers using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

10.  Cut a piece of Early Espresso Core’dinations cardstock so that it’s a little larger than your layered cardstock after you’ve folded it in half.  Sand it down a little to “vintage it up” then adhere your centrepiece to the base card.

Chevron Embossed card

I’m having a little love affair with vellum flowers at the moment.  I think it’s delicateness of them along with the versatility that I’m attracted to.

I’m not sure if you do this, but when I’m punching out a shape, I like to punch some extra ones and set them aside in a little box on my desk so that next time I’m making a card, I have something quick to dip into for an embellishment.  Do you do this too, or maybe the same thing but with die-cuts or embossed pieces?

Stampin' Up! chevron embossed card

In this card I’ve punched out some vellum flowers from Stampin’ Up!’s Gold Foil vellum and left them as is to create a light and pretty card.  If you like a more vintage style, then you’ll want to look at this card I made using Stampin’ Up!’s Blossom Punch to get another card idea for using vellum flowers and to see the effect of layering them.

Back to this card, I’ve added a photo for you to see what the vellum looks like as I’m punching out the flowers:

punching out flowers from vellum

And a close up of the details on the card:

close up of Stampin' up! Chevron card

Here’s some instructions on how I made this card:

1.  Start with half a piece of A4 white cardstock and fold it in half to make your base card.

2.  Trim down the other half of your white cardstock so that it’s slightly smaller than the front of your base card then place it into the Chevron Embossing folder and run it through the Big Shot to emboss.  Mount the embossed card onto your base card using Stampin’ Dimensionals (foam dots).

3.  Punch out five flowers using Stampin’ Up!’s Pansy Punch, positioning the punch so that the gold dots on the vellum are in the centre of the flower (as shown in the photo above).  Adhere these flowers onto your card using Dimensionals (foam dots) placed under the gold centre so that the adhesive isn’t showing.

4.  Stamp your greeting then die cut it into an oval using The Big Shot and Oval Framelits.

5.  Pierce holes around the oval using the Paper Piercing template then adhere to your card and add a small bow to the top using a length of Seam Binding.  You can adhere the ribbon with a glue dot.

That’s it! your card is finished :D  This card is also great as a birthday card, just change your stamped greeting.

Get Well Card for a child

The other day my daughter was looking through a box of cards that I made her over the years and she pulled out a couple of Get Well cards.  “You used to make me cards when I was sick? why don’t you do that anymore???”  Oh dear.  Yes, even though it was something like a quick bout of tonsillitis, I’d make a card to cheer her up.  Why did I stop?  I don’t know, I guess because I never realised how much a card meant to the kids.  Ironic for a cardmaker right?  Mental note to self: make more cards for the kids!

Today I’m sharing a Get Well card I made for a young boy.

Stampin' Up! Get Well Card

This card started out with me choosing the stamp I wanted to use then I chose what patterned paper I wanted to use which gave me my colour scheme (just a little bit of the thought process of how I got going).  Oh, before I get started, just a quick note to say that Stampin’ Up! Australia donate $3 from the sale of every “Tag It” stamp set (the one I used here) to Ronald McDonald House.  Love it!

Here’s how I made the card:

1. Colour straight onto the rubber stamp using markers: Use a brown marker to colour in the brackets, blue to colour in the stethoscope, orange to colour in the ‘get well soon’, then stamp straight onto the paper.

2. Punch out the image using Stampin’ Up!’s Decorative Label Punch then run the orange marker around the edge of the punched out image to highlight

3. Adhere a Retro Fresh Journalling Tag to some orange cardstock cut to be a bit bigger than the tag.  Then using Dimensionals attach the ‘get well’ punch to the centre of the tag to give it a bit of a pop.  Set aside for later.

4.  Cut a piece of Retro Fresh Designer Series Paper to be a little smaller than the front of your base card and adhere three strips of Washi Tape as shown in the photo. (all these Retro Fresh products are in Stampin’ Up! Australia’s Occasions Catalogue)

5.  Adhere the patterned paper to your base card and then attach the centrepiece to your card using Dimensionals to help it stand out.

6.  Time to embellish!  My embellishments came about because of some little errors on my part – as they sometimes do!  I always think a mistake is an opportunity to embellish ;)  I placed two strips of Washi Tape over a little wooden arrow embellishment.  And don’t you love how everything matches with Stampin’ Up!?  Even the Washi Tape was the perfect width for the wooden embellishment so I could put two strips of it and it matched perfectly.  The embellishment was glued down with glue dots to cover the little smudge I managed to make on the card.  The three little Candy Dots were added at the end – I found I hadn’t cut the Washi Tape straight enough and it was bothering me.  No matter how I tried to fix it, it was still a bit crooked so I covered the end with the Candy Dots.  I think it ended up balancing the card out nicely though, so all’s well that ends well!

A simple watercolour wonder card

Sometimes you just want to enjoy a bit of cardmaking, creating some cards for friends without spending two hours on each card.  This is the card that I created today, it was quick, it was definitely fun and I’ll be making a heap more.

stampin up watercolor wonder card

If you’re wondering how I made this card quickly, I had a little help from Stampin’ Up!’s Watercolor Wonder Notecards.

stampin up watercolor wonder notecards

You can see I used that card on the right as my base to start the card then I just added my greeting and embellishment. Great for some fun but easy cardmaking.  Here’s a quick rundown of how I made the card.

1. Stamp the “You make me happy” greeting with Night of Navy ink

2. Die cut the greeting using the Big Shot and Oval Framelit then run the Crisp Cantaloupe marker around the edge of the oval to give it a nice finish.

3. Place Sticky Strip around the back of the oval then adhere the ribbon to the back of the oval so that only the ruffles show

4. Adhere the finished centrepiece to the folded base card.

5. Thread the gold Bakers Twine through the button and make a knot.  Use glue dots to adhere to the card.

That’s it! Five easy steps.  I think making a bunch of these cards and tying them up with some ribbon would make a lovely gift for someone :D

A Sweet Little Project

Dessert bars, candy buffets, lolly buffets, call them what you will – they’re all the rage right now and no surprise why, they look amazing and never fail to impress.  I always wonder though if those people who style dessert buffets try one of each lolly?  I mean, they’d want to make sure it’s all perfect right?  Clearly not a job for me because many M&Ms went missing during this little creative project!

stampin up lolly bags for candy buffet

 

I had a lot of fun making these little bags and I hope the girls receiving them will enjoy them.  Creating these bags is super easy!  Just follow these instructions:

1. Half fill cello bags with coordinated candy (try not to eat too many then having to run out and buy more!)

2. Fold a little piece of pink cardstock in half and cut a piece of patterned paper to fit the front and glue it on

3. Add a little tape to both sides of the inside of the cardstock and place over the cello bag to secure it

4. Stamp your ‘Thank you” image in pink (or you could do ‘Happy Birthday’ or ‘For You’)

5. Die-cut the “Thank you” image using the Big Shot and coordinating Framelit (Bitty Banners)

6. Attach your greeting to the front using Dimensionals (foam dots).

Quick, easy, fun :)  Also fun finding all the coordinating lollies/candy to go in these bags.

Card for a friend – Stampin’ Up! Peachy Keen Retro Fresh

I think I’m lovin’ this new Retro Fresh suite that Stampin’ Up! has brought out.  Usually I prefer vintage, simply because anything that’s on the ‘clean’ looking side is just screaming for me to put an inky thumb print on or mess it up in some way.  But the fun retro feel of this polaroid die and the paper is fun and fresh.

IMG_6625

I made this card for a new friend who is very much into taking photos so the little camera that I cut out with the Big Shot was the perfect embellishment for this card.

Do you want to make this card? It super easy :)  Here’s some quick instructions:

  1. Emboss a piece of white cardstock (slightly smaller than your base card) using the Arrows Embossing Folder and adhere to your base card.
  2. Die cut Costal Cabana cardstock using the Polaroid die and glue patterned paper behind it.
  3. Run some Washi Tape over the bottom of the Polaroid then tie Bakers Twine around it.
  4. Place a little Washi Tape over a wooden heart shaped embellishment and trim around to neaten up (super quick to do!) then adhere to the polaroid as shown in the photo.
  5.  Stamp “Hello Friend” in Costal Cabana ink on a small piece of scrap white cardstock. Layer onto Silver Glimmer Paper.  Stick it on the patterned paper using Dimensionals (foam dots).
  6. Cut out a little camera embellishment with the Big Shot using the On Film Framelits and Silver Foil sheet and attach as shown in the photo.
  7. That’s it!  Attach your finished Polaroid onto the front of your card using Dimensionals (foam dots).

So what do you think?  Do you like the retro look?

Valentine’s, Anniversary, Just Because I Love You!

So it’s Valentine’s Day next week and I’ve made a bunch of Valentine’s Day cards (because I love a lot of people!).  But I was thinking these cards would also be great as Anniversary cards or even “just because” cards.  Just because?  Sure, there’s times when someone has gone through a hard time but you don’t want to do a “thinking of you” or “I know you’re feeling crappy” card.  A greeting card that simply says “I heart you” can mean a lot.

So this is the first card I made in the set.  Retro Card Style Tip: I’ve gone for the retro look and to pull that look together I’ve used a film strip die (very retro!), slightly distressed/shabby patterned paper and a cute button to match.

IMG_6614

And here’s a group shot of a few of the cards I’ve made.  All the background papers are from the Fresh Prints Designer Series Stack – very hand for a crafter like me who doesn’t want to fuss… just peel off a sheet and trim down a little.

IMG_6618

These were really quick & easy and super fun to make.  Just trim down some white cardstock to the size you’d like to go on your card.  Add some patterned paper (trimmed down a little smaller than the white cardstock) on top.  Tie some bakers twine around the card.  Die Cut silver glitter paper with the film strip die.  Die Cut the “I heart U” in red cardstock and stick it all together.  The button was attached with some glue dots.  Finishing touch is a little rhinestone in the heart.
