Tiny Word with One Big Meaning

I am so lucky to have this little business of mine with wonderful customers.

To say thank you to those who have placed orders with me recently, I made this card.  Each card has a handwritten note from me too.

Stampin' Up! One Big Meaning with HIPPOFROG Designs

This card is made using the One Big Meaning and Blooms and Wishes Stamp Sets.

I really like the soft combination of Rich Razzleberry, Blushing Bride, Pear Pizzazz and Smoky Slate.  All set against the Whisper White background with a thin Silver Ribbon accent.

Last Week’s Card & Cuppa – Inspired by Wimbledon

As Wimbledon started last week, it seemed appropriate to create a Wimbledon inspired project for Card & Cuppa.

Stampin' Up! Blooms & Wishes

As the nod to Wimbledon, this card uses greens, purple and a flash of yellow.

Thin Daffodil Delight Washi Tape from Pack 2 creates the thin yellow tramlines.  Next, we added the leaves using various green shades of Tranquil Tide, Old Olive and Wild Wasabi.

Rich Razzleberry is our purple tone and we’ve used it for the sentiment and flower.  The flower is stamped twice and cut out by hand, before being layered over the leaves.

All of the stamps used are from the Blooms & Wishes Stamp Set.  You can easily replicate this design with different stamp sets or colours.

The finishing touch is bling using the largest Rhinestone Jewels from the newly configured packs.

Join us next week at one of our three Card & Cuppa venues.  Book your place by 18:00 the day before.

Last Week’s Card & Cuppa – One for the DSP Hoarders

Happy Monday!  I hope you’ve had a good weekend.

I’ve a question for you.  Who can’t bear to cut into their DSP and sits there stroking it instead?  Come on, own up!

Well, for all you DSP hoarders, last week’s Card & Cuppa project is perfect for you.

Blooms & Wishes Stampin' Up! UK

Isn’t it fun?  It uses the Blooms & Bliss DSP and the sentiment from the Blooms & Wishes Stamp Set.  This DSP is now no longer available, but you could use any DSP for this project.

By cutting the DSP into thin strips,  you can place the pieces in any pattern you like.  I used a herringbone pattern for this one, but you could let your creativity go wild!

Here’s another project using a slightly different pattern.

Blooms & Wishes Stampin' Up! UK

The bonus of using DSP in this way is that you can make loads of cards from a pack and show off all sides of the paper at once.  I used 6 strips measuring 6″ by 1.5cm, 3 each from two different pieces of DSP, so it’s really economical.  It also looks really effective and you can change the DSP, colours and sentiments to suit almost any ocassion, or use cardstock instead.  What’s not to love?

By taking a colour from the DSP, I added a sentiment, a strip of card and made a bow with the Bow Builder Punch for the finishing touch.

So, get out that Designer Series Paper and start cutting it into strips.

I’d love to see your creations.

To join us for a Card & Cuppa session, book your place by 18:00 the day before.
