Here is a sneak peek of what we will be creating in tomorrow’s Saturday Anything Goes series at 3 pm EDT/2 pm CDT on my Facebook Page – Cards by Wynnie. Hope you will join me!
One of my favorite things to come out of this year’s Occasions catalog is the slim note cards and envelopes. Sometimes it’s nice to have a quick little note that you can send to someone just to let them know you are thinking of them. A set of 4 decorated and put into a cute box makes a great gift too! Creating this boxed set also gave me the opportunity to play with the Remarkable You stamp set – I just love coloring in the flowers and leaves, so many possibilities! So I thought I would put together some quick instructions to show you how I made them.
The box is made using the die from Lots to Love Box Framelits Dies (145653). You will need to cut two pieces of Whisper White cardstock (100730). I then stamped the magnolia and the sentiment from Remarkable You Stamp Set (139894) in Memento Tuxedo Black ink (132708) and colored the floral image using the Pink Pirouette Stampin’ Blends (144604) using both the dark and the light markers. I then gave it the old splatter treatment using a Basic Black Stampin’ Write Marker (100082). Then it was time to adhere them together with Fast Fuse (129026). There are lots of great YouTube videos that show how to put it together if you need help.
I grabbed four of the Whisper White Narrow Note Cards & Envelopes (145583) and stamped each with an image from the Remarkable You stamp set (info listed above) using Memento Tuxedo Black Ink. Each image is colored using Prismacolor Colored Pencils because the Stampin’ Blends do tend to bleed through to the back. This gave a nice softness to the floral images. I tucked the cards with their matching envelopes into the box and that as they say was that!
Such an easy project, especially if you like coloring! I hope you will give it a try. Let me know if you have any questions at all. You can purchase the products by clicking on the Shop Now button in the upper right corner, or simply click here if you are on your mobile device.
Have fun and Ta for now!
We have done so much traveling that I haven’t had much time to craft (no wonder I have been grumpy LOL). So this past weekend I locked myself in my craft room and had lots of fun as well as learned something new!
My first project was a scrapbook layout. This was a totally new method of crafting for me but I have wanted to do something with the pics of my DIY wedding for years. Pink and white and floral all over, just like our decor on the big day!
Then I moved on to a couple of 3D projects – the more I do these, the more I really enjoy them! The penguin box was inspired by a crafter who made lovely treat boxes using the Windows Thinlits dies. And since I was up to my elbows in Hershey’s and Reese’s this seemed like the way to go. The second project – a lovely post-it note holder with slot for short pen – is one I make frequently. They are perfect as little gifts and Christmas is a great time for them.
And you know I couldn’t leave my craft room without making at least a few cards, especially since I just received the Remarkable You stamp set. This first one uses the calla lilies against a die cut background (yup, not even winter and I am ready for spring).
Of course, Ms. Bella had to make an appearance. This is such a fun birthday card and gave me another opportunity to use my much loved Stampin’ Blends!
This last card is just for me – again using an image from the Remarkable You stamp set. I love magnolias, especially the pink ones you see in spring on the tulip magnolia trees. I also used a different card size than usual – tall and skinny. I love it!
Well, I hope you enjoyed seeing how I spent my weekend. Hope you found a little time amidst all the hustle and bustle of the season to sit down and decompress through crafting. If you would like instructions on any of the above, leave a comment and I will be happy to do that one in an individual post.
Ta for now!
