Customer Thank You Cards with Beautiful Butterfly Gala!

Hello and welcome! Today I’d like to share with you my July Customer Thank You Cards. These were sent out to everyone who placed an online order using my July Host Code. I decided to use the Stampin’ Up! Butterfly Gala Stamp Set because of the gorgeous images and fabulous ‘Thank You So Very Much’ sentiment.

Let’s Make It…

Start with one of the Whisper White Note Cards and stamp the sentiment, in the bottom left corner, in Memento Tuxedo Black ink.

Stamp the double butterfly outline image such that it goes off the edge of the note card (also using Memento Tuxedo Black ink). Also stamp the bodies and antennae.

Use the infill stamps to colour the butterflies – I have used Blushing Bride and Petal Pink on the small butterfly and Soft Sea Foam and Mint Macaron on the larger butterfly.

What do you think to my July Customer Thank You Cards?

I hope you like my July Customer Thank You Cards. They are quick and simple to make but I really think that the two-tone butterflies look gorgeous and the sentiment is perfect!

Simple Stamping with Comfort & Hope

Hello and welcome to the June edition of the Stamptastic Friends Blog Hop! This month our theme is ‘Simple Stamping’. Simple Stamping is a phrase used a lot in the Stampin’ Up! world and it means just using Stamps, Ink and Paper (Cardstock). These projects are great for beginners, those without a die cutting machine, or for times when we need a beautiful card quickly! For my project I decided to pair Simple Stamping with Comfort & Hope, a brand new Stamp Set from the Stampin’ Up! 2020-2021 Annual Catalogue. I hope you like it!

Don’t forget to carry on hopping once you have read my blog post, the list of participants can be found below.

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.

Simple Stamping Comfort & Hope Card by Helen Chapman Handmade Crafts

Let’s make it…

The (standard A6) card base is created from Crumb Cake cardstock. This is followed by a layer of Whisper White cardstock measuring 10 x 14.4 cm, which forms the main card front.

I have stamped the ‘twine loop’ in Crumb Cake ink onto the right hand side of my card front. The ‘grass’ image is then stamped repeatedly around this to form a loose wreath. I have used Mossy Meadow and Pear Pizzazz ink and used multiple generations of stamping to get a range of colour tones.

The sentiment is stamped in Mossy Meadow ink onto Whisper White cardstock which is trimmed to 2.1 x 7 cm. I have also decorated the sentiment piece with the ‘grass’ image and the ‘gems’ image, both stamped in Pear Pizzazz ink. This is layered onto a piece of Crumb Cake cardstock measuring 2.6 x 8 cm.

The final touch is provided by the ‘rhinestones’ image which is stamped in the bottom left corner in Mossy Meadow ink.

What do you think to my Simple Stamping with Comfort & Hope?

I hope you like my card. I love the Stampin’ Up! Comfort & Hope Stamp Set. It contains a wonderful mix of background stamps, some gorgeous sentiments and great focal images. I think the inclusion of stamps which look like rhinestones and gems is inspired! They are a fabulous finishing touch without adding thickness or weight to your project!

Lovely You Simple Stamping Card

Hello and welcome! Today I would like to share with you this Stampin’ Up! Lovely You Simple Stamping card. ‘Simple Stamping’ cards are those which require only stamps, ink and card, and as such, are great for beginners or for when you are short on time. This Stamp Set will be available in the upcoming Stampin’ Up! Annual Catalogue. To request your copy click here.

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

This card was created for a CAS(E) This Sketch Challenge. The sketch is shown below. You can find out more about these challenges, see the other entries or join in here.

Here is my project (and card making doesn’t get much simpler than this)…

Let’s make it…

The (standard A6) card base is created from Whisper White Thick cardstock. The three different foliage images are stamped directly onto the card in Shaded Spruce, Garden Green and Pear Pizzazz ink. The flowers are stamped in Highland Heather ink.

The sentiment is stamped in Highland Heather ink onto Whisper White cardstock and trimmed using the Paper Trimmer. This is simply adhered to the card using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

This is such a quick and simple card to create but still manages to pack a real punch! You could even produce it using only two ink pads if you only have one shade of green!

What do you think?

Do you enjoy Simple Stamping? I find these types of project are great when I am short on time or if I am batch making cards. They are also perfect for introducing friends or family to card making if they have never done it before.

Absolutely Fabulous!

Hello and welcome! Today I’d like to share with you a card I created for the latest AAA Cards Challenge. Click the link to find out more about these challenges, see the other entries or join in. The guidelines for the challenge are shown below…

You may have guessed which TV show inspired my card from the title of my post! Here is another ‘clue’…

Source: Wikipedia

Here is my card…

Let’s make it…

The (standard A6) card base is created from Mango Melody cardstock and that is followed by a 13.9 x 10 cm layer of Whisper White cardstock.

The sentiment is from the Stampin’ Up! Stitched All Around Stamp Set and is stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black ink.

Although only a single image was allowed I wanted to get more colour onto the card so I decided to ink up the stamp using Sponge Daubers to get a multi-colour effect. The image is from the Stampin’ Up! Birthday Backgrounds Stamp Set. I tried to match the colours from the TV show’s title image and used: Mango Melody, Melon Mambo and Pineapple Punch.

What do you think?

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