Christmas Pines and Pine Bough Stampin up ! May your Christmas Sparkle with Joy and Happiness!

"May your Christmas Sparkle with Joy and Happiness!" 

What a beautiful sentiment to put on your handmade Christmas Cards and indeed Handmade Packaging!

This is one of 8 Sentiments in the Christmas Pine Set of which has 22 stamp images in, I used this Set with the Die Set that co ordinates with it, as well as a co ordinating Embossing Folder called Pine Bough Textured.

I went for a yearly get together with some friends and we always make a little treat gift to hand out, and this year I purchased a fabulous slab of exquisite Chocolate from Aldi no less, the packaging is just like Fortnum & Mason pretty packaging in itself, But I wanted to pimp it up a bit,  To be fair I would not have used the colours I did but I was governed by the Chocolate Dressing and I think they turned out rather nice..

The colourways are Bermuda Bay, Whisper White and Gold....   I made a box and matching card and added some embellishments I picked up from Sainsbury, I came across some rather cute Wooden  Reindeers painted in white and some wooden Snowflakes, got my tiny little white bells from a Christmas Heart decoration I just snipped the white and pulled them off.

To make the box I cut a piece of Bermuda Bay 6 1/4 inches x 9 1/2  inches and scored on all side at 3/4 inch,   for the lid  in Whisper White the same but added 1/16th of an inch making it 9 1/2 plus 1/16th x  61/4  plus 1/16th and again scored at 3/4 inch on all sides, so that I could see some Bermuda bay , before cutting to the score lines to make tabs  I trimmed 1/8th off all round.
For Centimetres I would cut bermuda Bay at 16 x 24cm, for the lid 16.3 x 24.3 and score all round at 2cm.

Hope you like as much as I do!

Perpetual Birthday Calendar Stamp Set not just for Calendars ..... Stampin' Up!

Hello There,

Today I want to share with you the cards we made at my Card and a Cuppa session this morning at Finches Cafe in Orpington High Street.

These are simple creations, and the colour ways are inspired by the Moroccan Designer Papers, I think they go well with Crumb Cake and the Note Cards are the perfect size to say Hello and Thanks!

I inked up the images using Delightful Dijon Ink Pad stamped directly onto Very Vanilla Cardstock  and then stamped again without reining so that I got a lighter version of the ink, This is what's know as Second Generation Stamping, A great technique when you want too colours from the same Hue, but want stronger and lighter colours, ...

The hello was stamped using a sentiment from the Pop of Paradise Stamp set, and the inside was decorated too, using the same effect on the front, but I used a sentiment that was from Beautiful Floral Phrases Stamp Set.  Finished off the designs with our Fabulous Rhinestone to add that touch of class.

 Hope you liked, see you soon.....

Swirly Scribbles Thinlits Fancy Fold Pop Up Panel Card Stampin Up..........

Gosh hasn't it been super hot here in the U.K these last few days, I am getting ready to do a stand at the Sandown Craft show this weekend, I just know it's going to be super busy and whilst we all would like super weather too , I do hope it cools down somewhat

Today I would like to share another card I made for a demo Friend Caroline, aka Craftyhallett whom I am doing a joint weekend Craft Retreat in September, Caroline makes fabulous creations so again , I had to have something a bit out of the box. It's called a Pop Up Panel Card. It's a fantastic WOW card when t's opened for sure.

I had seen this construction on Facebook group somewhere it had German instructions so my demo friend Lesley aka Lelly Jelly and I got together and tried to fathom it out, Google translate did make us giggle somewhat but we got there in the end with the help off some fabulous Guinness Cake that Lesley had made.

I used Dazzling Diamonds Glitter card, Melon Mambo, Basic Black Card Stock and the Pop of Pink DSP, a couple of stamp sets, Pop of Paradise, Thoughtful Banners, and the flowers are made using the Blossom Builders Punch.

It has been a full on week here at the Fairie Sanctuary, having to make card for other card makers is a real challenge I must admit, I had a couple to make this week too, but today I will share with you a card that I made for my friend Elaine from Papercraft Button,  Oh yes this was going to be hard Elaine is amazing at making boxes and stuff her videos are fabulous, but how on earth was I going to work this one, ...

Elaine made me a fab card for my Birthday in May, and she loved it so much she wanted to take it back home with her, and I was really mean and shoved it in me bag toot sweet, Coz loved it too!

So there was only one thing for it, Case the card that Elaine had made for me, where Elaine had used my fave set Timeless Textures,  I used the new one  out in the Stamping Up Annual Catalogue called Touches of Texture Stamp Set,  I also swapped out the Tom Holtz dies Elaine used as we didn't have those kind at the time, for the Swirly Bird, I loved how it came out and hope that Elaine did too..  i used Tempting Turquoise , Basic Grey and Basic Black .

He loves me , He Loves me not !!! Showcasing Bunch of Blossoms Stamp Set Stampin Up!

Today I am sharing some creations I made for a product based class I held for two Lovely Ladies, Hello Lesley and Diane.....

I seem to be in the Black n White with a pop of colour mode at the minute, funny how that happens,  though I must say I do like effect makes for a very striking creation.

We made three cards using the Bunch of Blossoms Bundle and a Pop Corn Box,  the Pop Corn Box is super cute, and I have an order from Paul for 50 for his Disabled Club Christmas table sale, I am hoping they go down a real treat, what am I saying of course they will they are super cute!!

So today I am sharing with you the Popcorn Box and matching card... The creations I am sharing with you today reminds me of the saying he loves me , he loves me not!!

You can see very clearly, but I have used the small flower from the Blossoms punch on the centres and have used two, one is flat and the other is scrunched up for texture, it looks really pretty in real life...

I have used the Neutrals 12x 12 paper stack DSP, you could use any colour for your Pop of colour, Diane used Bermuda Bay which looked just as sassy as the Melon Mambo that I have used..

If you wish to purchase the Bunch of Blossoms Bundle or Stamp Set from my 24/7 online shop please be sure to use the current Hostess club code when you are ordering to be sure to get a fab product gift from me as a thank you, you will receive this gift the 2nd week of August when I have closed the July Hostess club code order off.  .. `July's Hostess Club code is AWNWJS9D

Welcome to another Stampin Creative Blog Hop,  It starts this month with myself though you may have arrived here from  the lovely Gina one our new team members HERE.

This months remit is On Trend,  Stampin Up have certainly pushed the boat out on that one,  there are flamingos everywhere, and whilst I love the Flamingo Stamp Set I have decided to go with what has caught my eye over the last month or so, and thats the in colours, I have daily seen on my travels , Emerald Envy and Dapper Denim, and I have taken my inspiration from this notebook in  my local Sainsbury's , I KNEW instantly what I wanted to make when I spotted it...

I have used two sets for my makes but only the Sentiments from one of them which is from the Floral Phrases Stamped in Basic Black,  the splats from Timeless Textures  the rest was stamped using the Penned & Painted using the Dapper Denim, Emerald Envy and Smokey Slate, the DSP is from the  Incolour paper stack...

This card I used the Three Steps of stamps using the same pad but using the 2nd Generation Technique,

This card I just used the 1st and 2nd step of the Three Steps

Well I hope you enjoyed my On Trend Inspiration, I would love to have your thoughts on them so please do leave me a comment before you hop of to the rest of the Blog Hop...
