Painted Petals & Butterfly Basics – Convention Swaps

May 25, 2015

I really enjoyed going to Convention at the Gold Coast at the beginning of this month. Life had been rather hectic and I only decided a few days before that I’d make some cards for swaps, so I didn’t want to choose anything too complicated to make. I decided on a variation of the fold over window card I’d made for a class, but used a couple of different stamps sets and different colours – they really didn’t take too long to make and because of the different stamps and colours I didn’t get bored with them like I sometimes have in previous years! I only had time to make 35, but it was the perfect number, and I received some lovely card swaps in return.

I made several of these (I had to get creative with two different orientations because I thought I had run out of Crumb Cake card – I found the whole pack I thought I’d ordered after I’d finished them!):

Card: Very Vanilla, Crumb Cake, Always Artichoke
Stamp Pads: Mossy Meadow, Crumb Cake
Stamps: Butterfly Basics, Gorgeous Grunge
Other: Circles Framelits

I used the beautiful Painted Petals stamps for my other swaps, in various colours:

(These were actually done with Daffodil Delight and Crushed Curry markers, but must have picked up some of the red stain on the stamps, because they came out this rather pretty apricot shade!)

Card: Crumb Cake, Very Vanilla, Elegant Eggplant/Perfect Plum/Blackberry Bliss/Daffodil Delight
Stamp Pads: Crumb Cake, Elegant Eggplant/Rich Razzleberry/Soft Suede
Stamps: Painted Petals, Butterfly Basics
Other: Framelits – Circles Collection, Stampin’ Write markers – Pear Pizzazz, Perfect Plum & Elegant Eggplant/Rich Razzleberry & Blackberry Bliss/Daffodil Delight & Crushed Curry

Various other colour combinations with the Painted Petals stamp:

Card: Whisper White, Real Red/Pool Party/Crumb Cake/Sahara Sand
Stamp Pads: Crumb Cake/Sahara Sand/Pool Party
Stamps: Painted Petals, Butterfly Basics/Wetlands
Other: Framelits – Circles Collection, Stampin’ Write markers – Pear Pizzazz, Real Red & Cherry Cobbler

Card: Very Vanilla, Melon Mambo, Soft Sky/Crumb Cake
Stamp Pads: Melon Mambo/Pool Party
Stamps: Painted Petals, Butterfly Basics/Wetlands/Itty Bitty Banners
Other: Framelits – Circles/Ovals Collection, Stampin’ Write markers – Pear Pizzazz, Blushing Bride & Melon Mambo


Circle Card Thinlits

March 12, 2015

The Circle Card and Label Card Thinlits make impressive but easy cards – I use them frequently.

This card was from my Annual Catalogue launch last year. I used Claire Daly’s tutorial on extending the thinlits to make a flap.

Card: Lost Lagoon, Whisper White, Shimmery White, photocopy paper
Stamp Pads: Lost Lagoon, Calypso Coral, Pool Party, Marina Mist, Perfect Plum, Versamark
Stamps: By the Tide, Tag Talk
Other: Thinlits – Circle Card, Framelits – Circles Collection, Label Bracket punch

Hello Doily

September 23, 2013

I CASEd this card from one I saw in our bi-monthly Stampin’ Up demo magazine; this is a beautiful stamp. My first attempt was stamping just with the Versamark ink, but it was too pale on the Pink Pirouette card – the heat embossed image worked much better.

Card: Pink Pirouette, Sahara Sand, Whisper White
Stamp Pads: Versamark, Always Artichoke
Stamps: Hello Doily, Wetlands
Other: Framelits – Circles Collection; clear embossing powder, 1 cm taffeta ribbon – Pink Pirouette
