Twisted easel/ shaker card

Hi everyone
I hope you are all doing well.
This project is giving you a sneak peek of just a tiny bit of products available in the new Autumn/ Winter Stampin Up catalogue. The products I have mainly used is the Star of light stamp set and matching Starlight thinlet dies. These are available individually or together in a bundle and therefore saving yourself 10%.
I have also used the new Fancy frost sequins and the new Glitter ribbon duo pack.

Materials you will need to recreate this project is as follows:
Sweet Sugarplum cardstock measuring:
8 1/2 x 4 1/4", 4 1/4 x 4 1/4" and a scrap piece (big enough to cut out the outline star die)
Soft Sky cardstock measuring:
4 x 4" x 2 pieces
Whisper White cardstock measuring:
3 3/4 x 3 3/4" x 2 pieces
Sweet Sugarplum ink pad
Soft Sky ink pad
window sheet 3 3/8 x 3 3/8"
Sweet Sugarplum glitter ribbon
Fancy frost sequins
Foam adhesive strips

1. score the large piece of cardstock on the long side at 4 1/4" and fold to create the card base. Then on the front part score diagonally from the bottom left corner to the upper right corner and fold in on itself (this will create the twisted easel part of the card)
2. Attach the piece of Sweet sugarplum (4 1/4" x 4 1/4") to the front piece of the card base...only applying adhesive to the bottom half of the diagonal scoreline.
3. Next using a piece of whisper white use the outline star die to cut into the middle of the card,attach the window sheet to the inside to create the window, then do the same on the scrap piece of sweet sugarplum...fussy cut around the edge to create a frame and attach to the outside of the cut out.
4. using the cluster of 3 stars and one of the smaller stars from the stamp set, also both ink pads. Stamp a pattern around the star cut on on whisper white and also around the edges of the other piece of whisper white.
5. put the foam adhesive strips around the edge of the star (inner side) and put a pinch of the sequins inside. Take a piece of the soft sky card and carefully attach it to the strips. once this is done mat this onto the front panel of the card.
6. Mat the remaining pieces of soft sky and whisper white card onto the inner card base and using the smallest star die and co ordinating stamp attach to base part of card using a dimensional to form a stopper to keep the twisted easel standing once open
7. Lastly using the ribbon make a bow and attach to front of the card.

I hope you like this project as much as I do and hope you have fun creating it.

I hope to post another blog soon....happy crafting!!

Sunshine sayings and layering love card

Hi everyone Hope you have had a lovely weekend. Most of yesterday for me was spent shipping..oops. Finally found a beautiful unit to store all my stampin up goodies. Today I've been at work.
Anyway I love this card I've made which is strange for me as I'm normally my own worst critic haha.

Supplies you will need to recreate this:
Crumb cake cardstock 1 piece measuring 11 3/4" x 5 7/8" and 2nd piece 2 7/8" x 2 1/4"
Very vanilla cardstock 2 pieces measuring 
5 5/8" x 4 3/4" and 1 piece 2 3/4" x 2"
Sunshine sayings stamp set
Layering love stamp set
Crumb cake ink pad
Blushing bride ink pad
Gold embossing powder
Embossing buddy
Natural twine 
Button (I used a retired one from my stash)

1st score the biggest piece of crumb cake card at 5 7/8" then fold to create the Base. Attach one of the large very vanilla pieces to the inside of the card.
Using the stamps from sunshine sayings stamp onto the other large piece of very vanilla. Then put a little bit of snail or fuse on the back to wrap around your twine then attach it to the front of the card. I attached the button using a dimensional.
Next take the embossing buddy and wipe over the small piece of very vanilla and stamp the 'enjoy the little things' using the versamark. Sprinkle gold embossing powder over and use heat tool to set. Then mat this onto the piece of crumb cake and adhered to the front of card with dimensionals. 

I hope you all like this pretty card.
Happy crafting and I'll try and get back soon.

Easel card using floral phrases bundle

Hi everyone

1st fold the large piece on the score lines then layer one of the pieces of very vanilla on the inside to create a matt.
Then using the smallest of the floral thinlets I positioned it on the 2nd piece of very vanilla and die cut this out. Next I stamped the sentiment and hearts onto this. 
Then on the small piece of very vanilla I die cut out the same die as before and adhered it to some spare cherry cobbler. Then attach this panel to the Base of the card using dimensionals this creates the stopper once card is open. 
Last I stamped the floral image onto a scrap piece of card and then fussy cut around it, then attached it to card using dimensionals.

Waterfall card

Hi everyone sorry I've been missing for quite a while. I've been full of busy with work and then last weekend I was poorly 😢. Anyway back to full health now and thought I'd do a project to share with you all.

This is my take on a waterfall pretty and quite easy to do.
Above is a picture of the cardstock and dsp measurements that you will need to make the card like mine. I also used the items below...
Black ink pad
Lots of love stamp set
Garden in bloom stamp set
Project life corner rounder
1/8" handheld circle punch
Tombow multipurpose glue
and a bit of ribbon.

Take the panel of dsp and attach to the white panel of card, then I took the 1" x 4 1/4" panel of card and attached it to the top of the previous panel about 3/4 of the way down ( I used a couple of brads from my stash to attach it) now you can attach this panel to the Base card.
Next stamp your desired images onto the white squares of card and then attach these using tombow to the black squares. 
Using the 2" x 9" strip of card, score at the measurements shown in above picture. You then attach each of the layered squares placing each one just under each score line. 
Lastly I punched a hole in bottom of the strip we have just done and threaded some ribbon through to activate the waterfall feature.

Hope you like this project and hope to be back soon.
Happy crafting
