Floral Statements Note Cards and Matching Tote Bag

I am really enjoying making these Tote Bags and Matching Notecards, with this set I have used Naturally Ecletic Designer Series Paper and Night of Navy Cardstock for the handles and first mat on the Note Cards. I then have stamped the Thanks Stamp from the Floral Statements stamp set and cut them out before adhering them to the Note Cards. I have wrapped my notecards in some of the lovely new ribbon - 1/2"Night of Navy Gingham Ribbon. Then finally added some 3/8"Metallic Edge Ribbon to the Tote Bag, I chose to use the Gold.

Notecards and Matching Tote Bag


Welcome to another Crazy Crafters Team Project Highlights,  I have made some Note Cards with a matching Tote Bag. I have used Coffee Break Designer Series Paper for my Tote Bag  and the trim on the top and bottom of the bag with Early Espresso Cardstock handles. With my note cards I have used Stampin' Up!® precut and prescored notecards and envelopes (the most cost effective way). I then have my first mat of Early Espresso Cardstock, second mat is Whisper White. I have stamped the image from the Heartland Stamp Set on the front of the notecards and the envelopes. This would make a lovely present or gift of appreciation. Finally I tied a piece of the 1/8" Copper Ribbon on the Tote Bag.

Please check out the other Crazy Crafters Cards/Projects HERE  and please take the time to VOTE FOR YOUR FAVOURITE 5!

Guy Greetings Congratulations

I have continued this month to show you different ways to create a male themed card using the Guy Greetings Stamp Set. This stamp set is so versatile for those male themed cards. Over on my UTUBE CHANNEL you will also see some tutorials using this stamp set. If you 
SUBSCRIBE TO MY CHANNEL you'll never miss another tutorial again.

With this card I have used two of the techniques I have shown you in my tutorials, one being how to colour the Embossing Paste and also how to colour your Hearts and Stars Elements to fit the colour scheme of your card. I have used the  brick wall stencil to create my background, added some Bermuda Bay Stitched Satin Ribbon, Stars and Hearts Elements, Jewel Rhinestones and used Stampin' Dimensionals to add my water coloured car and finally added the sentiment.

Graceful Garden


Welcome to Kylie's International Stampin' Up!® Blog Highlights for this month, I would appreciate your vote for my card HERE!!!!!! I am number 2 the top 10 chosen will be taking part in the International Blog Hop next month.

With my card I have chosen to use the beautiful new stamp set "Graceful Garden", I have made 2 using different colours. For my base on both cards I started with Early Espresso, then the next layer of cardstock for both cards was: Pear Pizzazz or Perfect Plum. I then added a mat of Basic Black so the rose would really be showcased on the card. I stamped the rose in Stazon Jet Black Ink and cut it out, I then used my Stampin' Up!® Ink Pads and my Aqua Painter to colour the rose. I finally added a sentiment and some of the lovely new ribbons available in the new annual catalogue. Finished off just with a scatter of rhinestones on the Basic Black.

Guy Greetings - To A Classic


Welcome back everyone to another Crazy Crafter's Team Project Highlights, I hope you will take the time to CLICK HERE TO SEE ALL THE OTHER CARDS AND PROJECTS!

I decided to make a few male cards as I always seem to have an array of cards for all ocassions but seem to lack a supply of male cards. So don't forget to check out my UTUBE CHANNEL as I publish 3 tutorials every week. If you take the time to subscribe to my channel you won't miss another tutorial.

With my card I have used the Guy Greetings stamp set, I have started with my base of my card with some Soft Suede Cardstock, then the next mat is one of the new DSP "Wood Textures" this comes in a 6"x6" paper pad and is just perfect for those male themed cards. I then did a mat of Bermuda Bay Cardstock as a panel on the left hand side with a panel of Wood Textures DSP. On this final mat of Wood Textures I stamped the car image with Soft Suede ink pad, added some of the lovely new Stitched Satin Ribbon in the colour of Bermuda Bay and finally added my sentiment. With the car I stamped it on some watercolour paper in Stazon Jet Black Ink, cut it out and coloured it with a Aqua Painter and my Ink Pads as my pallette. In my pallette for the car I used Bermuda Bay, Basic Black and Pear Pizzazz. I adhered the car to my card with dimensionals so it would pop off the card.

Business Card Holder

After designing the Gift Card Holder I decided to do one for my Business Cards, so instead of just handing someone a Business Card they will receive it in a lovely pocket. This is a lot more personalised and more likely to be kept. I have tutorials with all the measurements for this Business Card Holder and the Gift Card Holder coming up on my Utube Channel very soon so make sure you subscribe so you don't miss it.

My Business Card Holder has Very Vanilla Cardstock as it's base, then some lovely Bundle of Love DSP, this is just georgeous DSP with Gold on every piece and an alternate colour on the other side. I didn't want a lot of embellishing for my Business Card Holder so I have just finished it off with one of the lovely new ribbons "1cm Metallic Edge Ribbon" in Gold.

Gift Card Holder

I started having a play to design a gift card holder, this can be given just as shown in my picture below or you could adhere your Gift Card Holder to the inside of your card. What a awesome gift two in one. I have made two as shown below, one for a male and the other for a lady.

The male themed one I have used Early Espresso as my base card and then the new DSP "Wood Textures" a great combo. Then finished it off with some of the new crumb cake ribbon and stamped images from the Guy Greetings stamp set. My go to stamp set lately when I'm doing male cards. The female themed gift card I have used Cherry Cobbler as my base card and then also another new DSP " Birthday Memories" also a great combo. I then embellished it with some of the new Cherry Cobbler ribbon and embellishements diecut from the Flourish Thinlits.

Guy Greetings Double Take


Hi Crafters, Welcome to our first Blog Hop for July with our very special talented guest Tanya Boser. Please visit Tanya's Blog HERE!!!!! to get some inspiration from her beautiful cards and projects. The theme this hop is to CASE one of Tanya's Cards/ Projects. Case: Copy and Selectively Edit.

Tanya's Card using the Guy Greetings Stamp Set



I have been making some male cards with this wonderful stamp set "Guy Greetings", it has become my go to stamp set for my male cards. I love the versatility of the stamp set using different techniques. Check out my UTUBE CHANNEL for some tutorials coming very soon on this set.

With my card I started off making my base card with Night of Navy Cardstock, next layer was Cherry Cobbler Cardstock and then the third layer was the new DSP Wood Textures (this is a great DSP for all your male cards). Using my Stitched Shaped Framelits I cut a piece of watercolour paper with the largest oval and sponged it with my brayer using Soft Sky, Blushing Bride and Pear Pizzazz Ink Pads to create a background. I then using the two largest oval shapes together created a border around the cut out oval on the front of the card. I stamped and coloured the image of the car and watercoloured it with my Aqua Painter and Ink Pads and adhered it to the sponged background. I then used dimensionals to adhere the second car. Finally added some other images with dimensionals from the same stamp set and some of the lovely new 3/8" Basic Black Shimmer Ribbon.
