Butterfly Basics Thanks Cards

I have so many projects that haven’t been shared, I just haven’t had the time at the computer to sit and write my posts.  It’s scary to see how much time has passed since my last post…and hope that it won’t be quite so long between this one and my next post!

Anyways, today I am sharing some cute little thank you cards I made a while ago…

Butterfly Basics 001

Super quick and easy, I was having a play with what was then our new In Colours, Watermelon Wonder and Tip Top Taupe.  They have been around for quite a while now!

June SCS Creative Crew DSP/Colour Focus

SU-Creative-CrewThe Splitcoaststampers Creative Crew June Challenge theme is Anything Goes!  For our Colour Focus challenge we want you to show us your favourite colour.  Try it in a colour combo you haven’t used before!

I actually had a really hard time choosing a fave colour!  I love so many of the Stampin’ Up! colours…..they are all my favourites!  But I had to choose, and in the end I settled on Wisteria Wonder.  I consulted my Colour Coach for advice on what colours to team it with, and got to work.

Regarding Dahlias 001 - Front

I was so happy to see the Regarding Dahlias stamp set return in the 2014-2015 catalogue!  This is the first time I have used it, and I’m in love!

Regarding Dahlias 001 - Inside

I am loving Sahara Sand, Soft Sky and Wisteria Wonder together too…..I think you will be seeing this colour combo pop up a bit more often!

Are you ready to show us your favourite colour?  Upload your project to Splitcoaststampers using the keyword CCREW0614DF.  Don’t forget to check out the amazing creations by my fellow design team members in the June Creative Crew Gallery too!

Can’t wait to see what you create using your favourite colour!

My swap for Inspire Create Share Convention 2014

Last Thursday, Friday and Saturday I attended the Stampin’ Up! Inspire Create Share Convention 2014.  It’s such an amazing experience, with plenty of new products to play with, the upcoming 2014-2015 catalogue to drool over, stamping, swapping, laughing, crying, stage walks, cheering, singing, dancing, prize patrols, all attendee give-aways, reunions with old friends and meeting new friends!  The event kicked off with Glinda singing “Popular” from the hit musical Wicked, which was fabulous, and it just got better from there!

While I haven’t yet managed to go through all of my photos from Convention, I have got photos of the card I made to swap while I was there.

Flower Shop 003 - Front

I have embossed one of the gorgeous flowers from the Flower Shop stamp set in Whisper White Embossing Powder onto Crumb Cake cardstock, and then coloured them all in with my Real Red Stampin’ Write Marker.  So time consuming, and I didn’t get anywhere near as many made as I would have liked, but I still got to swap with some super talented demonstrators, so I was happy.  Remind me next year to start earlier, or do something a little less time consuming!!

Flower Shop 003 - Inside

My swaps didn’t include the inside of the card, but I couldn’t post a card where the inside wasn’t as pretty as the outside!

I’m looking forward to making this card with my ladies this week 🙂

May SCS Creative Crew Holiday Focus


Holiday Focus:  National Photograph Month

Create a card that looks like a photograph by putting a border around your image and making the image glossy.  Use your On Film Framelits, or make your own frame.  Use Window Sheets to add your glossiness, or cover your image in Crystal Effects.

I haven’t caved in and purchased the On Film Framelits yet, so I pulled out my Squares Collection Framelits to create my own frame.

Wetlands 003 - Front

I stamped the Hardwood background onto Soft Suede cardstock, and die cut my squares to create my frame.  It doesn’t show in the photo, but I have added my Window Sheet in behind my frame, and popped that up on Stampin’ Dimensionals over my sponged Wetlands image.

Wetlands 003 - Inside

Are you ready to show us your photograph card?  Upload your creation to Splitcoaststampers with the keyword CCREW0514HF. Don’t forget to check out the May Creative Crew Gallery for inspiration while you are there!

May SCS Creative Crew DSP/Colour Focus

SU-Creative-CrewThe Splitcoaststampers SU Creative Crew have kicked off May with some fantastic challenges.  We have 24 super talented stampers in the design team for this round, so there’s lots of gorgeous projects in the May Creative Crew Gallery for you to check out!

Your theme this month is to be “Anything But Average”.  Take inspiration from the past and show us something new!  Stretch creatively through different folds and other creative projects, and leave “almost boring” at the back door.  We are focusing on non-traditional sized cards (anything BUT an A2), shaped cards, scrapbook layouts and 3D projects.  Go beyond the obvious and ordinary, and make it extraordinary!

DSP/Colour Focus: Daffodil Delight, Island Indigo, Gumball Green, Smoky Slate.

Use a technique of your choosing that imitates our Watercolor Wonder designer series paper.

I pulled out my Circle Card Thinlits for the very first time to create my flip card.

Flower Shop Flip Card Front

I love how easy this card was to make!  I knew exactly which sheet of Watercolor Wonder DSP I wanted to imitate, and pulled out my Flower Shop stamp set and got busy.

I stamped my flowers onto Whisper White cardstock using Gumball Green, Island Indigo and Smoky Slate ink.  Before stamping each flower I stamped onto scrap cardstock twice before stamping on my white to soften the colours.  I am so pleased with how this turned out!

Flower Shop Flip Card Side

I can’t wait to make this card with all my ladies!

Are you ready to show us your anything but average card?  Upload your card to Splitcoaststampers with the keyword CCREW0514DF.  Don’t forget to check out the inspiration in the May Creative Crew Gallery!

Butterfly Gift Cards

I was wasting time researching on Pinterest the other day and came across these gorgeous 3×3 cards by Jill Franchett, and knew they would be perfect to pop in with some orders I needed to deliver.

Express Yourself 001 - Group

I whipped up a bunch of them in no time at all, and my ladies LOVED them!
