Stampin' Up! Handsomely Suited

Hello crafty friends and welcome to my blog.

I am on a bit of a masculine theme at the moment as this month's Creativity Abounds Blog Hop is male projects and I usually find male card hard, but the Handsomely Suited bundle makes it easy. 

These ties are so much fun! You can stamp them and die cut them as I have here or you can use the die on its own with designer series paper for an outrageously colourful tie ... but for today, I have stamped on basic black with versamark ink and heat embossed with white embossing powder for the outer two ties. The middle tie, I stamped in basic gray ink on basic white cardstock.

  


I raised the ties with dimensionals and adhered the label directly on top. It is very hard to see, but the basic white layer on top of the card base is embossed with the Subtle 3D embossing folder. I think the picture above might give you better view of the embossing folder detail. I stamped the sentiment in basic gray ink and used one of the dies from Ornate Frames Dies to cut it out.

We just spent a lovely weekend with my family celebrating my youngest boys birthday, as well as my eldest niece, and my birthday. We are all within a month of each other and as my parents don't travel the 4 hours anymore, we go to them. I think our next trip will be in June for 3 more birthday's!

I hope you like today's project. If you have any questions, let me know.

Stampin' Up! Butterfly Brilliance

Hello crafty friends and welcome to my blog.

I am showing off some retiring products for the rest of this month before the new Annual Catalogue comes out next month. Today is the DSP - Playing with Patterns.


I'm sure you might know by now that I like this butterfly die - Brilliant Wings from the Butterfly Brilliance Bundle. The detail on these butterflies is amazing. The designer series paper is from the Playing with Patterns DSP pack. I added the matt black dots to the butterfly.


I love how the wings are floating. To make it stand out, I die cut two circles from the Layering Circles dies and placed the layers behind the butterfly. The sentiment is from Art Gallery Bundle.

Seeing as we missed Easter with my family due to the floods, we are off to see them this weekend. My kids are excited to see their cousins.

I hope you like today's project. If you have any questions, Let me know.

Stampin' Up! Art Gallery

Hello crafty friends and welcome to my blog.

I hope you had a great Easter break. We were without water for over 24 hours on Easter Sunday due to a burst pipe in the area - wasn't that fun! We did manage to get a lovely roast on the table for dinner. It is the first week of school holidays here and so far so good! LOL. Miss Kindergarten would like to go back to school to see her friends though.

The Art Gallery bundle from the Fine Art Gallery Suite is one of my favourite from the January - June Mini Catalogue. It is a two-step stamp set meaning there are two stamps that make up the flower head. The light blue is one stamp and the dark blue is the other and together they make the flower look so beautiful.

The basic white layer is from the Stitched So Sweetly dies and as you can see on the card base, I have stamped in 2nd generation ink the flower head but only 1 part of the two-step stamp. I raised the two flower heads using dimensionals.

I hope you like today's project. If you have any questions, let me know.
