Hi Stampers!

 

Today I wanted to show you this beautiful card we made at our craft class last night. It is a very simple technique that results in a ‘braided’ edge.  Once I’ve got my head around video blogging I will post a video tutorial on it, so watch this space.

 

Basically…….

stamp front and reverse of folded card using the ‘Dictionary’ stamp (make sure to take note of which end of ‘writing’ is up and which is down)

overstamp that with ‘Gorgeous Grunge’ stamp.

stamp inside card with ‘Gorgeous Grunge’ stamp to get the stamped effect on the folded down parts of the ‘braid’

use braid template to cut braid along spine – cut off the very bottom slice of braid (carefully as this will then be restuck to top)

fold down and tuck in every other slice of braid to create the braid effect. take your little cut off piece and glue to the top section and tuck in.

use ‘Tag Topper Punch’ to create your topper – layered with ‘Strawberry Slush and Crumb Cake’ card stock. ‘Crumb Cake layer needs to be stamped with ‘Gorgeous Grunge’.

stamp ‘Perfect Blend’ coffee cup image on to very vanilla card stock twice – 1 for ‘Tag Topper’ and 1 to overstamp the label with Dictionary’ stamp. cut this out and adhere to cup image.

decorate with ‘Strawberry Slush Bakers Twine’, Strawberry Slush Itty Bitty Accents’ punched pieces and ‘Rhinestone Basic Jewels’ and you have one gorgeous little card. (picture doesn’t do it justice, believe me)

 

Any questions or comments, I would LOVE to hear from you. 🙂

Good Afternoon All,

Not such a nice day here this afternoon. How is it with you?

GIVEAWAY on Sunday 14th September.

As a Thank You to those who have chosen to follow my blog this week, I will have a GIVEAWAY on Sunday 14th September.

This will be one of my handmade Greetings Cards and some fab Stampin’ Up! (c) product.

So don’t forget to [ FOLLOW ] me before you leave today.

Winner will be notified on Sunday by email.

*****

As you have no doubt guessed, Vivid Vases is the Feature Stamp this month and I just love it!

I had a play around with it earlier this morning and thought I would go for ‘less is more’ this time. What do you think?

I haven’t put any colour on the flowers as I quite like the clean look of the line art however I did glitz it up a bit with my favourite Crystal Effects.

I’ve attached a quick brief if you would like detail on dimensions and products.

Good Afternoon All,

What a time I’ve had of it today. Technology (in particular my laptop and all matters connected to it) is conspiring to drive me insane!  Hopefully I will get it all resolved in the next few days and I will be able to post more regularly without constant technical issues.

The gorgeous little Vivid Vases Stamp is surprisingly versatile. I’ve only recently started using it and featured it at a recent Project Class and this was a hit with my class members.

The project featured today is a little card that I had noticed on Pinterest so credit for this clever little design goes to Heidi Baks.

I hope you like it. Do leave me some feedback or questions.

I’ve attached a quick brief for reference.
