Dainty owl notecards

Good afternoon everybody. Hope everyone is having a lovely day?

Over the weekend I made a set of notecards using Stampin Up products.  I used the owl builder punch, black cardstock, blushing bride & crumb cake cardstock, and the white is from my stash.

The die I used is one from Tonic, (can’t remember the name right now…oops), and finally the background stamp is from the Stampin Up timeless textures set.  LOOOOVE this set!

I even made a small bag to pop them into.  The note cards measure Uk A7, approx  4x 2 3/4 inch, or 7x10cm. which means they are super cheap to produce, as you get 4 from one sheet of A4 card.  Happy days :)).

They’re cute & tiny, but just the job to send a heartfelt hello to someone, I find it’s such a nice gesture in today’s tech savvy world.

happy crafting

Watercolour wings gift tags

In addition to the watercolour wings cards I have been making, I also added in a set of gift tags, (just for good measure).

I punched the top of my card with the Tag Topper Punch, to create a lovely shaped edge.  I then layered Rich Razzleberry card stock below white cardstock to add a pop of colour.  A butterfly was made using the baby wipe technique, and this was adhered to the tag.  The butterfly was finished off with stick on gems to create the body, and the greeting was added using Bermuda Bay ink.

Simple yet effective.  I think it will look fab tied to a gift.  Maybe you could stamp the butterfly onto some tissue paper for gift wrap, add the tag and matching card and hey presto!!  A beautifully presented gift that cost pennies to make.

Until next time 🙂

Baby wipe butterflies

Good morning everybody!  Today I bring you a lovely technique that’s so easy, yet so effective.  I have been playing with this for days, and thought it was high time I share it with you all.  My Stampin Up upline showed us this at our training session, and I’m sure you will love it as much as I do.

To begin you will need a saucer (small plate), a baby wipe folded into quarters, a selection of Stampin Up re-inkers, and I used the large butterfly from the Watercolour wings stamp set.

Place your folded baby wipe onto the plate, then drop a variety of dye based inks randomly over the baby wipe.  Try not to overdo the darker inks though, as they may make it a little muddy looking.

Next press your stamp firmly onto the baby wipe to get a multi coloured ink effect on your stamp, now stamp this image onto your card.  You may need a few tries to get a good impression, but this is entirely personal preference.

This is such an easy technique that you could be producing these in large batches in no time. Quick and easy cards stamped and ready to go, in minutes.  Gotta love these ideas.

 

Until next time,  carry on crafting !!
