After the excitement of my little girl's christening last weekend I finally got some crafting time in this weekend hooray!
I will be doing a few craft fairs over the next few months and when I have done these in the past, sets of notecards always seem really popular!
I'm still slightly lacking on the new product front from the new catalogue but one of my favourite new stamp sets is called Happy Birthday Gorgeous!
These cards are made using the Notecards and Envelopes that are available to purchase in sets of 20. They come in Whisper White and Very Vanilla options and I have used Whisper White for these cards
These are the products that I used to make this Happy Birthday Gorgeous Notecards set...
Thanks for reading!
Looking forward to finishing off the Memories and More project sample to show you all ready for my taster class next week!
As promised, here is the 2nd class that we made at this month's card class.
If you missed yesterday's post, the cards this month all focus on the inside of the card, rather than all the detail being just on the outside! I make so may cards that are quick and simple, but it was really nice to do something a bit more involved and have that wow factor when the recipient opens their card!
When closed this card measures 4" x 4" and is made from a 4" x 8" piece of cardstock.
The arrows paper comes from the Naturally Eclectic Deigner Series Paper range and showcases some of the new 2017-2019 in-colours and previous 2016 - 2018 in-colours.
I have also used the Lovely Inside and Out bundle which includes the Lovely Words Thinlit Dies and Lovely Inside and Out stamp set. .
Now I will admit that this card doesn't photograph all that well and I'm still not confident enough to start videoing....but basically when you open the card it reveals diagonal folds with the diamond shape in the middle. It is very effective and provided some excellent sound effects from the ladies at class last night!
These are the products that I used to create this card...
Come back tomorrow to see the final of the 3 cards from this months card class...and my personal favourite!
So here we are...the final of the 3 card that we made at this month's card class all about Beauty on the Inside! It's always nice to make a really lovely card with just the front decorated but sometimes its nice to surprise your recipient with a little decoration on the inside!
This is my favourite of the 3 that we made....just saying!
Apart from the gorgeous colours on this card (Night of Navy and Daffodil Deilight) I have used the new Daisy Delight stamp set and matching Daisy Punch which is sold out across the whole of Stampin' Up! right now which just shows how much people are loving this set!
The papers come from the Delightful Daisy Designer Series Paper set and this is the one that jumped out at me first...and I found it really hard to cut (ha!) The sentiment comes from the Big on Birthdays stamp set and is such a nice size to use! I added the daisy's for that extra something!
And for the Beauty on the Inside...
So within this card, I have added an extra fold out panel with a window sheet used underneath the circle apperture and added another daisy as the centre piece. It doesn't fold well but the inside really is so pretty! It definitely looks more complicated than it was to put this one together but I think its quite effective! You could add anything to the centre...maybe for a christmas card, a christmas tree or a snowflake?! (Yes I'm starting to think about Christmas!)
These are the products that I used to make this card...
I can't believe it's been 3 weeks since I last wrote on here! It's been quite manic here at the manor with cars breaking, getting ready for a christening and general busy life! This card class was meant to take place in June but with the hubby being away for work, it didn't actually happen until July!
This month I chose to do a card class all about the inside of the card! We make so many cards where all the detail is on the outside, we often leave the inside blank or just add a sentiment.
At this card class we made 3 totally different cards where the front was pretty....but the insides are BEAUTIFUL!
This card measures 4, 1/8" x 5, 3/4" and uses DSP from the Medallions collection, in my fabourite new colour Lemon Lime Twist! I have kept it very simple by using the new Happy Birthday Thinlit cut in White & Basic Black then layered to give a shadown effect. As nice as this die looks when cut in one colour, I prefer to use it this way as it really does pop off the page!
The balloons and sentiment at the bottom come from the coordinating stamp set, Happy Birthday Gorgeous.
The inside is definitely more glamourous! This card is known as the "Twist and Pop" card as the centre of it lies flat when the card is closed (obviously!) and as you open the card, the centre part twists and pops out!
I have decorated the individual panels using the coordinating cardstock and ink, and used more stamps from the Happy Birthday Gorgeous stamp set.
This card was really fun to make, and looks alot more complicated than it actually is.
If you would like to learn how to make this card, or would like to order any of the items we used, please do get in touch.
Looking forward to showing you Part 2 tomorrow....!
