Beachy Little Christmas

Hi Everyone, today I have used one of the new Christmas Stamp Sets and it's just perfect for our Australian Christmas, when it is our summer and very hot!! It is called "Beachy Little Christmas", don't you just love it. For my card I have sponged the background using my ink pads, a sponge brayer and some Eclipse Masking Tape. I then used the stamp set High Tide to add some stamped dimension for the water and the sand. I also used one image for my sun rays from the stamp set Wherever You Go. Finally I stamped my beach house image and cut it out and coloured it with some Chameleon Pencils, I just love these pencils they are so awesome to blend and very easy to use. Then I applied the beach house image to my card with dimensionals.

Crafting Forever

I have used the Triple Time Technique firstly, then using the Stampin' Up!® Sponge Brayer I have masked off sections and sponged in a diagonal stripe pattern using Powder Pink, Sweet Sugarplum and Crumb Cake Ink Pads. I then stamped images over the 3 Layers of the Triple Time Technique on my card. Then I stamped the images and coloured them and cut them out and adhered them to my card with Stampin' Dimensionals.

Santa Paws

Welcome back Crafters, I have been having a play with another one of the new Christmas Stamp Sets "Santa Paws". I think this one will be very popular for those Dog and Cat lovers and those that like something different when making your Christmas Cards. For my cards I have done some layering of cardstock and DSP with the Stitched Shapes Framelits and Stampin' Dimensionals. I once again have used the new DSP Merry Music and added some Jewel Rhinestones and a Sentiment.

Christmas In The Making

Welcome Back Crafters, so it's September already. Today I have used the stamp set Christmas In The Making, I absolutely adore this set as it reminds me of the 1950's and 1960's fashion.

With my card I have used the new DSP Merry Music, I have coloured each image and cut them out before applying them to my card. I have used the Softly Falling Embossing Folder on one of the cards, the Layering Ovals and the Stitched Shapes Framelits on the other two. Added some Rhinestones and a sentiment from the same stamp set and have made my first lot of Christmas Cards for this year.

Moon Baby

For my card I put a mat of Colour Theory on my card, then I used a piece of Cherry Cobbler Cardstock and embossed it and cut out 3 squares using the Stitched Shapes Framelits so you could see the Colour Theory DSP. I then attached the three squares that I cut out on the card also and then using Stampin' Dimensionals applied my images. I coloured my images with pencils and finally added the sentiment to my card.

Little One

For my card this week I have used the stamp set "Little One" such a cute stamp set for all those baby cards we need to make from time to time or even it would make a great birthday card. Firstly using the Stampin' Up!® Sponge Brayer I sponged the background on some Shimmery White Cardstock using Soft Sky, Pink Pirouette and Pear Pizzazz Ink Pads. I then stamped and cut out my image, added some colour with some colour pencils and finally stamped some stars and my sentiment. I also punched out a circle punch and made a mask for my moon before sponging using my Sponge Brayer.

Guy Greetings

I have been getting into making a few male cards this month, I never seem to have enough of them. This time I have used the "Guy Greetings" stamp set. Firstly, I coloured some embossing paste with a ink refill to match my card colours and using the brick wall stencil applied the embossing paste to the cardstock and left it overnight to dry. Then I cut it to size to adapt it to my card, using the car image from Guy Greetings I cut it out and applied it to the coloured brick wall. I then used the Stitched Shaped Framelits and the Eastern Medallion Framelits to adhere my sentiment to and then applied it to my card with some dimensionals.

Layering Love


Welcome back crafters to another Crazy Crafters Team Project Highlights, please click HERE  to see all the other cards and projects the team have created for you. Please vote for your top 5!

With my card this week I have used a lovely sentiment from the Layering Love stamp set and cut it out with the Stitched Shapes Framelits. I have put a side panel of DSP from the Petal Garden 6x6 pack, idea if you are a card marker. I have also used in the background of the sentiment the thumping technique using my ink refills and some alcohol blending solution. I have been using this technique for  years and didn't realise it had a actual name. 

Please check out my UTUBE CHANNEL AND TUTORIALS AS I WILL BE DOING A TUTORIAL ON THIS TECHNIQUE!!
