Purple Window Frames with Welcoming Window

Today I feel like I’ve created a masterpiece! I’m in love with this card it has so many parts to it, let me take you through it. 

I haven’t used this bundle yet so I was super excited to crack it open. 

I started with an Old Olive frame and a Macrame embossed Very Vanilla panel. Next to create the window scene I used Fresh Freesia cardstock and the dies from the bundle. I have never seen a purple window before! I love it. The jug, flowers, pot plant and foliage you can stamp how you like I mixed it up by stamping full strength & stamping off (once).
The sentiment I ‘pieced’ together from the various verses in this bundle. Add dimension by lifting some pieces - take a closer look at the green shutters (one side is lifted the other glued to the base.

For the shutters I stamped off (once) with Old Olive ink and I did the same for the brick work in Cinnamon Cider ink. Usually we re-ink between stamping but stamping off is a way of creating a lighter image, definitely have some scrap paper handy to ‘stamp off’ onto so you can create that perfect shade or washed out look. 



Don’t forget the inside panel!

Such a beautiful Spring fresh pallet

Very Versailles for World Card Making Day #WCMD2021

Every Friday afternoon, my Stampin Mum Kylie, Crazy Crafters have a zoom get together to craft for a bit. Before the VIC lockdowns, I was hardly ever able to make them, but I have soooo enjoyed jumping on when I can to craft along. This card I made in record time! I joined the meeting late and in preparation for WORLD CARD MAKING DAY 2021 (the following day) I created this card. I think the final time was 33mins... which is actually quite fast for me.  LOL 

I picked an 'old' stamp set - Very Versailles and I challenged myself with my own colour challenge  - see my shirt below. I also finally baptised my Blending Brushes.. well lets not go crazy I used one. 
I tried to use the black - but it didnt go so I went with white instead. 

The girls online watched me make this and the GASPS as I ripped the cardstock was quite funny, but its so satisfying - like a stress relief.  My favourite parts to this card are the debossed background panel in Daffodil Delight and the layering/random stamping on the front white panel. 

When you emboss a piece of cardstock you can choose which side you want to showcase - the flower petals will either be RAISED (embossed side) or SUNKEN (debossed). I'm sure either way would look great but its a great tip.
Some light stamping and blending with the brush for the inside. 

I have quite the collection of Colour Combinations - check out my pinterest board for HUNDREDS of ideas - I recently celebrated my 10th Anniversary with Stampin' Up - so there's plenty ideas for you to use.

You’re the Best with Hats Off - Horizontal Gate fold card

I was challenged to create a masculine card with the below colour challenge. How did I go?? Did I pull it off? I'm also really digging the card fold - its a Horizontal gate fold.

Here's what I used to create this card, this bundle is getting lots of use -yay!

Lots of layers - starting with a stamped background, see the stars directly on the card base. The I cut a BIG banner in Blackberry Bliss, I also embossed this panel. Next was the So Saffron scalloped square/rectangle, it could be either depending on what angle you're looking at. Lastly the hat die cut in Mossy Meadow and the greeting... but wait theres more!

The inside is never bare

...using the mini cap die, cut in all the colours and stamped stars to add detail!



The colour challenges are really fun!  They're for everyone to join in- jump on facebook to check them out.

Pampered Pets - A Pet Sympathy card

Its always sad when you hear a friends pet has passed away. I like to have some pet sympathy cards on hand for times like these, when all you can really do is show you're thinking of them. As a young girl we never really had pets at home, as an adult I can see why mum and dad said no to pets. They both had their hearts broken when their pets died and were trying to save us the same heartache. 

Just a few supplies are needed to created this card. What you'll notice is that I have used the cat and dog dies as shadows. 

With a few circle punches (retired items) you can easily create a paw print. I have also seen it done with an upside down heart punch. 

We never forget the inside! The paw prints were die cut from the white panel which allows the Pacific Point Frame behind it to shine through. 

I was inspired by this card I saw by Alison Solven using the same bundle. 
I like how by adding Pacific Point we have a brand new look on this card
