CAS(E) This Sketch | Challenge #390

 Welcome back to my blog! 

Today I am sharing a card I made for CAS(E) This Sketch Challenge #390. Here is the sketch:

When I saw the sketch I decided that it would be ideal for a Christmas card using my Poinsettia Place stamp set.


I have included a full list of supplies I used at the end of the post. (Glitter paper is from my own stash).

I wanted to create some bulk to my bouquet so in addition to using the leaf and berries from the poinsettia dies I also used the leaf die from Forever flourishing dies.

The poinsettia was stamped in Real Red and then I used the Poppy colour marker to create some contrast, then die cutting it out I decided to fussy cut it to remove any white outline. When I layered the petals together I bent them slightly to give dimension. 

Once I had the card all put together I couldn't fit the sentiment where it was in the sketch without covering up the lovely flocked vellum so I moved it up higher to balance out the card. 


I am so happy with how this card came out, it may be one of my favourites I have ever made!

Thanks so much for stopping by, hope you have a beautiful day!

CAS Colours & Sketches | Challenge #388 - Colours

Hello, 


Today I am sharing a card I have made for CAS Colours and Sketches Challenge #388

This week it is a colour challenge:


I was a bit unsure of how to use this colour combo but it has a very autumn feel so I decided to use the stitched leaf dies. 


Here is how I made the card (full list of supplies below - sequins are from my own stash).

  • I started with a white card base and very carefully flicked cinnamon cider ink using a slightly wet paint brush (not too wet, or it will go in huge splodges!). 
  • Next I stamped the leaf stamp from Beautful Autumn on a piece of white card cut to 2 inches wide in versa mark and heat embossed with white embossing powder.
  • I blended the inks over the top of the embossing and adhered to card front
  • The leaves are cut using the stitched leaves dies, the large in crumb cake, the smallest in cinnamon and the medium in gold 
  • I tied a piece of the gold twin in a bow and then layered the leave on top. 
  • I stamped the sentiment last and added sequins.


Thank you so much for stopping by!

TGIF Challenges | #TGIFC282 Inspiration Challenge

Happy Sunday!


Today I am sharing a card I made for TGIF Challenges. This week it is an inspiration challenge, using this image: 


The image reminded me of a stamp I had seen recently which I loved and wanted to recreate using my own Stampin Up supplies. 


A full list of supplies I used to make this card is below, the circle dies and sequins are from my own stash. 

How I made the card: 
  • Cut a piece of Whisper White card down to make the front panel, I made mile 1/2" smaller than my card base (card base is Blushing Bride in A6 size - half A4 card folded)
  • Emboss white card stock with Diamond embossing folder and adhere to card base
  • Stamp roses from All things fabulous stamp set - this is a layered stamp set. I stamped two larger flowers in So Saffron and Blushing Bride, then the smaller rose was 2nd generation stamping for all three layers in Flirty Flamingo. The smallest flower was second generation stamping in saffron. I then stamped a 3 leaf stem in Pear Pizzaz and then 2 leaf stems - one in pear and two in Soft Seafoam.
  • Die cut out the flowers and leaves plus use the brushed metallic to cut two sets of leaves. 
  • For the gold circle I used circle dies from my own stash, I ran two through together to make a hoop of brushed metallic card. 
  • Adhere the loop to the card using multi purpose glue, this glue has a small tip so it is easy to apply on fine areas. 
  • Stamp the sentiment on a piece of white card stock, use the banner punch to cut the end, layer on a piece of blushing bride (which has also been cut with banner punch)
  • Adhere the leaves and flowers. I placed the two larger flowers on dimensionals and then adhered the rose on top, added my sentiment and then I tucked in the smaller flower and leaves around to make the arrangement.
  • I finished off with sequins from my own stash.
