Stampin' Up! Ornate Garden Money Wallet by Helen Chapman Handmade Crafts

Are you ever disappointed when you buy a money wallet or gift voucher holder because it’s really flimsy and almost de-values your gift?! If so, why not make your own? This one is so easy to make, really sturdy and will certainly stand out from the rest!

Let’s make it…

The base of the wallet is created from Whisper White Thick cardstock. I have trimmed an A4 sheet to a length of 27 cm and then scored at 9.9 cm and 19.8 cm.

To decorate the panels you will need 4 pieces of Early Espresso measuring 20.5 x 9.4 cm and one piece measuring 20.5 x 6.7 cm. You will also need 3 pieces of Designer Series Paper (DSP) measuring 20 x 8.9 cm and one piece measuring 20 x 6.2 cm. I have used the Stampin’ Up! Ornate Garden DSP.

Layer three of the larger pieces of DSP onto three of the larger pieces of Early Espresso cardstock. Layer the smaller piece of DSP onto the smaller piece of Early Espresso cardstock.

Adhere the left over piece of Early Espresso cardstock onto the central panel on the inside of the wallet. Apply Stampin’ Seal+ to the edges of the small panel, fold up and press to adhere. This creates the pocket. Adhere the cardstock / DSP layers to the remaining panels.

To decorate the front of the wallet I have used the Stampin’ Up! Ornate Thanks Stamp Set and Ornate Layers Dies. I have used the three thinner rectangular dies – the largest is used to cut out a piece of Early Espresso cardstock; the next size down is used to cut out a piece of DSP; and the stitched rectangle is used to cut out the sentiment piece. The sentiment is heat embossed onto Early Espresso cardstock using White Stampin’ Emboss Powder.

These pieces are then layered together and adhered to the bottom right hand side of the wallet front. The final touch is provided by a length of Old Olive Ribbon (from the Ornate Garden Ribbon Combo Pack) which adhered into a loop using Tear & Tape. The ribbon is placed around the wallet and another small length tied around it for extra detail.

Ornate Garden Card

Hello and welcome! Today I would like to share with you a card I created for a sketch challenge hosted by Inspire.Create.Challenges – click on the link to find out more about these challenges, view the other entries or join in. The sketch for this challenge is shown below…

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

I decided to use the Stampin’ Up! Ornate Garden Suite and this is what I created…

Let’s make it…

The (standard A6) card base is created from Whisper White Thick cardstock. This is followed by a 14.6 x 10.2 cm layer of Old Olive cardstock.

I have used one of the Ornate Layers Dies to cut out a piece of Ornate Garden Speciality Designer Series Paper (DSP). Another piece of the DSP is cut out using the 2.25″ Circle Punch. These two pieces are adhered to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

A length of Terracotta Tile Ribbon (from the Ornate Garden Ribbon Combo Pack) is wrapped around the card front and adhered at the back using Tear & Tape.

The sentiment is from the Ornate Thanks Stamp Set and is stamped in Old Olive ink onto Whisper White cardstock. This is cut out using one of the Stitched Rectangles Dies and adhered over the ribbon using Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals.

The final touch is provided by a few Gilded Gems.

This is such a gorgeous Suite of products which all coordinates so well. You can’t help but make stunning cards!

SU Ornate Garden Card

Hello and welcome! Recently, Stampin’ Up! have been issuing weekly Colour Challenges to demonstrators. I’m a little bit behind but here is one I have taken part in…

The challenge involves making a project using any combination of the colours shown. I decided to use Lovely Lipstick and Gorgeous Grape. Here is my project…

Let’s make it…

The (standard A6) card base is created from Whisper White Thick cardstock. This is followed by a 10.2 x 14.6 cm layer of Lovely Lipstick cardstock. The main card front is a 10 x 14.4 cm layer of Whisper White cardstock.

Onto the card front I have heat embossed the gorgeous, large image from the Ornate Style Stamp Set using Clear Stampin’ Emboss Powder (white would work equally well). I have then used a Sponge Brayer to colour over the image; using both Lovely Lipstick and Gorgeous Grape inks to create a blended effect.

The sentiment is from the Ornate Thanks Stamp Set and is stamped in Gorgeous Grape ink onto Whisper White cardstock. This is cut out using one of the Stitched Rectangles Dies. The frame is cut out of Lovely Lipstick cardstock using one of the Ornate Layers Dies. These two pieces are layered together using Multipurpose Liquid Glue and adhered to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

The final touch is provided by a few of the Lovely Lipstick Happiness Blooms Enamel Dots.

Simple Ornate Garden Card

Hello and welcome to Part 4 of my Stampin’ Up! Ornate Garden Suite Showcase. If you have missed the previous instalments you can find them here… part 1, 2 and 3.

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.

It’s very tempting with this Suite to do as the name suggests and create ‘ornate’ projects. However, I wanted to showcase something simpler and was inspired by the latest CAS(E) This Sketch Challenge. You can find out more about these challenges, see the other entries and join in by clicking the link above. The sketch for the latest challenge is shown below…

I immediately thought about using strips of Designer Series Paper (DSP) as the focal point of my project…

Let’s make it…

The card base is created from Old Olive cardstock and this is followed by a layer of Whisper White cardstock.

I cut three different lengths from three different sheets of the Ornate Garden DSP and adhered them to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

The sentiment is from the Ornate Thanks Stamp Set and is stamped in Old Olive ink directly on to the card front.

This is such a simple card but I love the clean, fresh look. If you have any questions or comments please leave them below or email me at helen@papercraftlife.com

Next time…

Next month my Suite Showcase will be replaced by a Retiring Product Showcase! Normal service will be resumed in June!
