SU Morning Star Card

Hello and welcome! Today I would like to share with you a card which is the latest addition to my Card Kit offering. These card kits are perfect for those who have a few stamp sets and ink pads but don’t necessarily have lots of colours of cardstock, die sets, embellishments etc. Each kit has a blog post and video tutorial to help you and the blog posts list the products used so you can purchase anything you don’t already have in your stash! You can browse the available card kits and PDF tutorials here.

Today’s project features the Stampin’ Up! Morning Star Stamp Set. This set really enables you to build your own scenes and they can be as simple or complicated as you want.

If you would prefer to watch me create the card simply scroll to the end of this blog post where you can watch my video tutorial.

Let’s make it…

The card base is created from Whisper White Thick cardstock and this is followed by a layer of Whisper White cardstock. I have used the foliage stamps to create a background using Pear Pizzazz ink. The small flower is then stamped in Gorgeous Grape ink.

The foliage star is also stamped in Pear Pizzazz ink onto Whisper White cardstock and the large flower is stamped in Gorgeous Grape ink. This is then cut out using the coordinating Stitched Stars die. This is adhered to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

The sentiment is stamped in Gorgeous Grape ink onto Whisper White cardstock and cut out using one of the Stitched Rectangle dies. The small foliage stamp is used to decorate the sentiment piece and it is adhered to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

Real Red Colour Challenge 3

Hello and welcome to Week 3 of my Stampin’ Up! Real Red Colour Challenge. If you missed the first two colour challenges you can find them here… Week 1 and Week 2. This week the required colour combination is: Real Red, Highland Heather and Crushed Curry.

If you would prefer to watch me create the card simply scroll to the end of this blog post where you can watch my video tutorial.

I decided that it was time to revisit the Stampin’ Up! Butterfly Gala Bundle for today’s project…

Let’s make it…

The card base is created from Whisper White Thick cardstock. I have then used two pieces of the Regals DSP and layered these on to the card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I have used a strip of Whisper White cardstock and adhered this to the DSP. Butterflies are cut out of all three challenge colours using the Butterfly Duet Punch.

The sentiment, from the Butterfly Gala Stamp Set, is stamped in Highland Heather ink onto Whisper White cardstock. This is cut out using the 2″ Circle Punch. A piece of Highland Heather DSP is cut out using the 2.25″ Circle Punch and these are layered together using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. The sentiment piece is adhered to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

The butterflies are shaped slightly and adhered around the card using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

Next time…

I hope you have enjoyed this blog post. Join me next week for the final instalment of my Stampin’ Up! Real Red Colour Challenge when the combination will be: Real Red, Soft Suede and Pear Pizzazz!

Clean & Simple Sketch Challenge

Hello and welcome! Today I’d like to share a card I created for a Clean & Simple Sketch Challenge. You can find out more about these challenges here – you can view the other entries or take part yourself. The sketch for the challenge is shown below.

I decided on a simple colour scheme of Very Vanilla and Petal Pink, and used a combination of different products.

Let’s make it…

The card base is created from Very Vanilla Thick cardstock and this is followed by a slightly smaller layer of Very Vanilla cardstock. Instead of using two different patterned papers or colours of cardstock to split the background, as indicated in the sketch, I decided to use a die cut. I used one of the Ornate Borders Dies to cut out a piece of Petal Pink cardstock and adhered this to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

For the angled panel I used the Stitched So Sweetly Dies and cut one piece of Very Vanilla cardstock and one piece of the Petal Pink DSP, layered them together and adhered them to the card using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

To decorate the panel, I cut the three single flowers from the Ornate Borders Dies, layered them together and added a Petal Pink Basic Adhesive-Backed Sequin.

The final touch was the sentiment, from the Ornate Thanks Stamp Set, which is stamped directly onto the card front in Petal Pink ink.

I hope the like my project! If you have any questions or comments please leave them below or email me at helen@papercraftlife.com

Painted Poppies Watercolour Card

Hello and welcome to the Stamptastic Friends Blog Hop! This month we are creating projects using our three favourite Stampin’ Up! Colours. For me, these are: Highland Heather, Seaside Spray and Rococo Rose. It’s so hard to choose though! What are your favourites?

If you would prefer to watch me create the card simply scroll to the end of this blog post where you can watch my video tutorial.

For my project I decided to use the Painted Poppies Stamp Set…

Let’s make it…

The card base is created from Basic Black cardstock and this is followed by a layer of Fluid 100 Watercolour Paper.

Six of the images from the Painted Poppies Stamp Set are stamped in Stazon Jet Black ink. Water was applied to the images using the Large tip Aqua Painter and then ink applied using the Medium tip Aqua Painter. I use small Clear Blocks as make-shift palettes!

Once the water and ink is dried (use a Heat Tool if you’re in a hurry but don’t forget it may move the ink a little), I used a Basic Black Stampin’ Write Marker to create splatters all across the card front. This is a great technique if you feel you have a little too much white space but don’t want to distract from your focal images too much.

The sentiment is from the Label Me Bold Stamp Set and is stamped three times in Stazon Jet Black ink onto Whisper White cardstock. These are cut out using Paper Snips and adhered to the card using Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals (even these tiny ones need cutting in half for this!).

I hope you like my project. Don’t forget to carry on hopping to see what inspiration my Stamptastic Friends have for you…

Happy crafting, h x
