Merriest Moments #1


Love love love this Merriest Moments bundle of dies, embossing folder and stamps... I really do! 

Which is of course... code for a long series coming your way... hope you enjoy these as much as I enjoyed making them...!

Starting off with a simple but stunning large A5 sized card... a real WOW for someone special... featuring gold embossed flowers... with Evening Evergreen and Very Vanilla... 

And seeing as this is the first post of the series...let me introduce you to the bundle...

Starting with the Merriest Frames dies... 

Along with the Hybrid Embossing Folder... emboss it... die cut it... add a die cut mat... mount it...  the options are vast!

As well as the Merriest Moments stamps... with such gorgeous greetings too... 

 You can get the stamps on their own... or the dies & folder... but they really do work so well together!

You're A Peach #1 - Side (aka Book) Fold Card


Well I promised you more... 

After 18 months without classes... my ladies weren't ready for just Christmas makes... so I did a set of Christmas and a set of All Occasions to top up their stash!  A dual format that will be repeated! Same cards, different papers/themes...

So here we have the All Occasion series with the focus on using 6x6 papers... again starting with a Side Fold card (aka Book Fold or Book Binding Fold Card)

In fact 2 Side Fold Cards...as I started off on white card... and then decided I wanted more of a colour pop...so out came the Calypso Coral...

Featuring You're A Peach papers ... bright, zesty and one to lift your mood!

Click HERE to see the alternative Side Fold card for Christmas... featuring Tidings of Christmas...

And/or click HERE to see all the You're A Peach Suite in action...

Small flowers and leaves fussy cut out from the papers... greeting and larger fussy cut leaves from the Sentimental Rose kit... and the greeting punched out again with the Label Me Lovely Punch...

Fun Fold Friday - Lock & Pop Card - Tidings of Christmas #3

Closed....

Another card in the series focusing on using the 6 x 6 papers...  featuring Tidings of Christmas and  Merriest Moments for Christmas makes... and using the Stitched So Sweetly dies for my all-time-favourite greeting label...

Definitely a favourite card fold at the moment... though it probably won't be when I finish the 60+ thank you cards I have on the go at the moment... but more on those another day....

Open... and on display...

Thursday Tidings of Christmas #2 - Multi Layer Card - with some tips...

Another in my series of Focus on Using 6x6 Papers... featuring Tidings of Christmas along with the Merriest Moments stamps for some Christmas makes...

This card is a great way to use the scraps left from another card....

But before I start... remember that today  is the last day you can order with the Sale A Bration promotion offers available to you.... In brief... a free gift for every £45 ordered... a free stamp set (In  Your Words) for orders over £275... AND wow! A free extra bundle when joining (see pg 19) our Stampin Up! family ...

Bit of a back story with this card... as it is a re-worked or CASEd version of a card I made 8 years ago for a Male Card series using Dapper Dad and Parkers Patterns... and that has been sitting on my "re-make me as I'm great" pile ever since... So now I have... though I changed the sizes of the top mat and papers to suit my leftovers from a card I will share soon!

And I couldn't resist decorating the inside with another of my paper scraps...

And a few tips for you....

(1) Reduce the amount of ribbon/thread you use when you are just going to cover it up... hopefully the picture says 1000 words....

(2) Feel free to "gut" the centre of your paper square... again hopefully the picture says 1000 words... I went round lining up and cutting at 3cm on all 4 sides... so I now have a smaller square of paper to use on another card...

(3) The poinsettia is a small flower layered (using a 3d foam Stampin Dimensionals pad) over a larger flower!

(4) The poinsettia leaves are from the large poinsettia flower inked up in the green! (Evening Evergreen in this instance) Perfect finish!
