Lift me Up Customer Thanks you's, Freshly Made Sketches #280

Today's card is my Customer Thank you cards, using a sketch from Freshly Made Sketches

Freshly Made Sketches #280 


The colours are Denim Dapper and Emerald Envy, very striking together, as well as using the Lift me Up Stamp set I used the Floral Phrases for the sentiment , I trimmed the first part off.. 


The Masking Technique for the Balloons was used on this card.

 I used the 2016-2018 Incolour DSP stack to match the Denim Dapper, and finished off with Linen Thread and Rhinestones.  Oooooh I forgot the Little splats  from Timeless Textures they are stamped in Smokey Slate just to add that little extra that I thought was missing...

Jar of Love, Stampin Up! #GDP079

Over at Global Design Project#GDP079 HERE this week the theme is Amusement Park.

When I saw this challenge I was a bit perplexed but the more I thought about it the more it brought back memories of when my Dad used to take me to the fairs when I was a little un. 
I always came home with a Gold Fish or Two, and a face full of Candy Floss, the poor little Fishes must have been dizzy on the journey back home, with me swinging the bag excitedly. 

I used scraps that I made whilst playing with the Bubble wrap Technique, Using Pool Party and Bermuda Bay ink pads on to Shimmery Card Stock.
 I made a Jar for the Jar of Love Bundle, a little acetate window , and I coloured the Fishes with marker Pens, So Saffron, Daffodil Delight, and Crushed Curry, Pumpkin Pie  with splashes of Wild Wasabi. the sliver of DSP is from the Tasty Treats pack which is now on offer for Free with the Sale- A-Bration offers until the end of this month. I sprinkled a few tiny sequins from the Cool Treats Suite and a few Rhinestones .




The sentiment is from the Bookcase Builder Stamp Set and is very apt indeed.
  
 I really didn't know we were making memories, I did just think we were having fun!!

Global Design Project 078 | Sketch Challenge

Global Design Project 078 | Sketch Challenge


Today's Card is using another Sketch this time the Global design Project Teams Sketch HERE #GDP078. 
The Stamp Set I used today is the That's the Tag Set, The sentiment is from the Iconic Occasions Hostess Set, and the DSP from the Sale- A - Bration selection , only available when you spend £45 by the end of March 2017.

I used the Bubble Wrap technique where you colur the Bubble Wrap with watered down ink using a water Brush not Shimmery White Card Stock, shame you can't see the shimmer in the photo's.

I used the Stiched Shape Framelets that are coming in the June Annual Catalogue but are available NOW in my online shop item code 145372.


The Colours I used are Watermelon Wonder and Basic Black.  Firstly I stamped the stiched circle from the Stamp Set, and I stamped the pretty flower from  the That's the Tag set, and stamped again onto DSP and used the ball of my embossing tool to manipulate the petals so that they curled. and adhered to the stamped flower on the circle, I cut the circle out using the Stitched Shape Framelits, you get three different shapes and four sizes of each shape, all for £27

Here is another Using Pool Party and a splash of Bermuda Bay, and the DSP is from the Sweet Treats This one is winging itself to a good friend that just loves Blue.
Have to say though I very nearly kept it, lol.
Edited to say I am pleased to say I am winner with this card over at GDP Soooo pleased.

I wanted to use a technique I came across on an American demo's blog (My Pink Stamper,  this Lady is amazing, ) called Bubble Wrap Watercolour Background, its a fab fun and not so messy technique using Household tat, namely Bubble wrap...


I used watercolour Paper, Flicked splashes of Clear Wink of Stella you can barely see this in the photo's but it just finishes it off all lovely and sparkly, Basic Rhinestones Jewels, Sequins and Brights Enamel Dots add to the textures.



I stamped the sentiment in versamark and threw White Embossing Powder on top for my Free choice Colour,  Ooooo and I spaltted a few bits of Gold Wink of Stella too as I have now run out of the Clear one, Must remedy that!!

Lift Me Up Interactive Card, Stampin' Up! ........

I am always on the look out for interactive cards to make my family members, and one of our Stampin Up family members did a sample share at On stage in Telford last November,  Sanjay from Mitosu Crafts,  made a fabulous card and I just couldn't wait til he shared how he made the construction of it,  I loved it,...  recently he shared it on our  Stampin Up Demonstrator facebook group run by Stampin Up!  I was excited I have to say, ..

I had an image in my head of what I wanted to do,  Sanjay shared a video  HERE on the construction in which he used the Window shopping Die, ..  I will be doing my own video on how to make mine, so if you wish to view it be sure to subscribe to my you tube channel or my newsletter.








I wanted to use the Lift me Up Bundle,  and wanted the large Air Balloon to look like it was flying high through  the Air,  So I used the Balloon Pop Up Dies to get this effect,   Each Die bundle is worth is money in Gold, and it just goes to show how they all really do Co ordinate with each other one of the things I love about Stampin Up!

This Card I made for my Mum's Birthday,  this time I made a second below one using a different colour so I can use as a sample to keep, ...


The colours are the same as my previous post,  I wanted to come away from the colours of the Co Ordinating DSP that's Free at the moment for every £45 you spend with me,  for a more feminine touch,.
I used Wink of Stella to make the clouds and balloon glisten and rhinestones to finish it off.

Global Design Project 075 Theme Challenge, Dragonfly Dreams Stampin' Up! #GDP075

Dragonfly Dreams, What a beautiful set,  I needed to make a card for my friends Birthday, and I had this on my table, along with some cardstock and DSP that I had been using to make my Mum a Card, I will show you that in the week,   I then went onto Global Design Project Blog, and saw that their theme was WINGED... 

Global Design Project 075 | Theme Challenge



Well from there then the card was created,  The stamps to this set I was lucky enough to get for free  (The perks of being a demo) when I went to Telford Onstage in November last year, So all I had to purchase was the Dies, ...

I used a technique I hadn't used in a good while called the Baby Wipe Technique with Perfect Plum and Pool Party Re inkers for the Dragonflies. 




The DSP is from the Tasty Treats Specialty Paper.


I finished it off with some sequins,  and splashes of Clear Wink of Stella,  I did this by flicking the brush tip on the lid. What a pretty Effect!

Cupcakes & Carousels Suite - Stampin' Up!

Hello There,

Today I want to share with you a Birthday Card I made for my lovely Friend and Downline Annette, It uses the DSP and the Embellishment Kit from the Cupcakes & Carousels Suite it super prettilicous.

I absolutely love this suite, and the Samples in the Spring Catalogue are just so inspiring, Whilst I used the suite for most of the card , I used a sentiment thats at the back of the catalogue called suite Sentiments, it has something for every occassion and works perfectly with the suite...

I just love the colour ways of the papers I used Pool Party, Bermuda Bay and So Saffron, Yummy!





Look at that cute Bow and Tassle... LOVE IT!!
