Old World Gifts of Kindness

It hasn’t been my intention to continually use the Soho Subway DSP but it certainly has become that way though hasn’t it? On this card I have chosen yet another design of this range to punch out hexagons.

Old World Gifts of Kindness

At the top of the card I used some sticky strip to create a ruffle appearance with the beautiful Very Vanilla 1/2″ Seam Binding Ribbon (more has been ordered so if you forgot or missed out with the first allotment, email me today…), adding some Large Pearl Basic Jewels for some extra ompf!

Then onto the sponged and arranged hexagons I’ve layered (surprise!) the Very Vanilla cardstock onto Early Espresso which I’ve then trimmed with Crisp Cantaloupe 3/8″ Ruffle Stretch Trim. This ribbon ties into the layers on the base card which is Natural Ivory then is layered with Early Espresso, Crisp Cantaloupe with the Very Vanilla cardstock on top!

The stamp of the teapot and flowers came from the Tea Party stamp set and was stamped in Baked Brown Sugar Classic Ink. The sentiment was stamped in Early Espresso from the Gifts of Kindness stamp set (yes, another of my current favorites for sentiments…)!

Oh Hello all that Glitters!

Oh my, I look at this card now and I feel like that Swedish cook from the Muppet’s who was always saying “layer upon layer upon layer”, or was that an old Australian television commercial I was thinking of? Either way, when I look at this card now all I see are layers!

Whisper White base with a Black layer to border what was once  a Whisper White pieces of cardstock until I spritzed it with Rich Razzleberry. Isn’t it incredible how it dilutes to a gorgeous soft pink? Onto this I’ve then spritzed some of the Vanilla Shimmer (page 164 – check it out!).

Oh Hello you Primrose Petal Rose you!

Then to these layers I’ve added two different sets of layers. The first being the stamped rose in Primrose Petal from the Oh Hello stamp set which had just the smallest amount of Dazzling Diamonds glued to the petal edges. The edges of the Whisper White cardstock have been inked directly from the sponge pad before being adhered to a border of Basic Gray on top of the Black. Pearl jewels adding a smidge of elegance.

Then to each edge of a strip of Sliver Glimmer Paper (page 156 – my current favorite!) I’ve used Strawberry Slush 3/8″ Ruffle Stretch Trim and a Large Pearl Jewel on either edge. So simple yet effective!

OOh hello you glittery thing!

A very girlie card so perhaps having loads of layers then is apt… perhaps!

Last minute birthday!

Yes, there’s nothing quite like a last-minute birthday party announcement. I fear Master Eleven was in-fact advised of this event earlier in the week but decided to only advise me only the day prior, at which point he wasn’t interested so the said information was immediately released from my advice-vault. What can I say, if it doesn’t involve me I say… “catch and release“!

Anyways, that was the “day before” wasn’t it? The day of the event at 3pm it was decided he’d go for the intended start time of 6pm but only stay until 10pm at which time I would be required to collect him. Fine… one last-minute card and gift coming up… grrrr, children, grrrr 🙂 This is what eventuated and fortunately, I promised myself at the time that next month, next week, I would leave this particular DSP alone and I now I have!

Anyways… for a last-minute card I think I did okay don’t you?!

Shapes and Numbers

I tell you, I’m lovin’ this new hexagon punch, so much so I’ve now gone through the new Annual Catalog and found every matching stamp-set and ordered them… yikes! As this hexagon stamp felt a tad girlie I used another stamp and punch to cover some of the sentiment for a more masculine feel.

Shapes and Numbers - Sentiment

And for the “you” I made a letter “U” from the XL and L Oval stamps, added Stampin’ Dimensionals and adhered over the top of some of the fabulous Washi Tape which just happened to have a HEXAGON pattern on it, yea baby!

Just Thinking… again!!!

As promised, here is my girlie take on the Just Thinking stamp available now in the Stampin’ Up! Spring Catalog but only until the end of next week, May 31!

Inkee Fiddlings - Just Thinking of You - Raspberry Ripple

On a background of Whisper White I’ve adhered some Print Poetry DSP layered onto Raspberry Ripple. Still in the Raspberry Ripple I’ve used the heart adorning accent folder to emboss an inch-wide strip which has been gently rubbed with Champagne Mist Shimmer Paint then centered on the card. To this on either side I’ve added some of the 5/8″  Flower Trims.

Inkee Fiddlings - Just Thinking - Raspberry Ripple

For the stamp I used Raspberry Ripple Classic Ink on Whisper White, cutting close to the edge. Using Stampin’ Dimensionals, this was centered on a frame die-cut from the Window Frames Collection Framelits Dies in Raspberry Ripple. This too had Stampin’ Dimensionals added to it along with the Dazzling Details before being centered onto the inch embossed strip.
