People Like You Tutorial

When I saw this stamp set I just had to have it, the sentiment on it is just so lovely!  So here's the card we're going to make.

A very simple card with some colouring and a little bit of decoupage. I saw a card similar to this on pinterest.

You will need
People like you Stamp
Whisper White Card
Basic Black card
Cherry Cobbler Chevron Ribbon


Start with a 6"x6" base card in whisper white

Cut two black layers of 5 3/4" square and two white layers of 5 1/2" square.
Mat and layer one of the black and white layers to the inside of your card.
On your 5 1/2" square layer that you have left stamp the image 'people like you'. Stamp it out twice more on a separate piece of card so that you can use these layers for your decoupage.
Colour as desired.  If you are colouring using stampin write markers please remember to stamp in black stazon ink.  I used Spectrum Noir pens to colour using CR11, DG2 and CT4.
Cut out the pieces as shown and layer on to your card using foam pads
Before layering up your sentiment add a piece of chevron ribbon.
Layer your stamped image on to your remaining black layer and then onto the front of your base card.  Add three gems to the top left hand corner of your card.  You could also add a sentiment to the inside of your card if you so wish.

Remembering Birthdays

I don't know about you but I have a terrible time remembering birthdays.  A friend had seen a type of banner that you could list all your birthdays on and asked me if I could make one for her.  It was such a good idea and so easy to do that, I, of course had to make one for myself.

Whats even better is it's made from the sweet sorbet papers you get free during Sale-a-bration!!

The word birthdays was cut out using stampin ups Typeset Alphabet die
The dates where made using another freebie from Sale-a-bration both the banner stamps and the punch where free!!

To finish it off little butterflies with names and birthdays on.

Hope you like it

Hardwood Tutorial

Hi there dear readers, today I have another tutorial for you this time using the hardwood stamp.  I wasn't keen on this stamp until I saw all the beautiful cards that were being made with it.  This one I got the lovely Julie Kettlewell.

So this is the card;

You will need;
Soft suede card and ink
Crumb cake card
Very Vanilla card
Bermuda Bay Ink
Crumb Cake Seam binding
Hardwood Stamp
Petite Petals stamp and punch
Candy dots in Bermuda bay,
Circle Framelets.
See ya later stamp set


First make a base card of 6"x6" in soft suede (if you are unsure on how to do this look on my post for 24 February it explains how to do this)

Cut out two 5 3/4" x 5 3/4" Squares in crumb.  Glue one of these pieces to the inside of your card.  Stamp the other with the hardwood stamp in soft suede ink.  I used my stamp-a-ma-jig to help line it up as the card you're using is bigger than the stamp.
Then glue this layer to the front of your base card
Cut a piece of soft suede card stock measuring 4 3/4" square, stamp this in soft suede using the hardwood stamp.
Using the circle framelets cut a circle in the middle of your soft suede 4 3/4" square card.  I used the 7th circle from the middle.

Using one size bigger circle cut out a circle from very vanilla card stock. Stamp this with your sentiment, I used the See Ya Later stamp set for this which is free during sale-a-bration with any order of £45 or more.

Glue the sentiment to the middle of your card.
Add your layer of 4 3/4" square of soft suede card with foam pads

Stamp out some petite petals in soft suede and Bermuda Bay, punch these out and attach them with foam pads around the circle on your soft suede card.
Add a crumb cake bow to the top right hand corner and some candy dots to the bottom left hand corner.  I also made this one for valentines day;

Burlap and Blooms Wreath

I'm really not one for buying crafting kits really but this burlap and blooms wreath from stampin up I just could not resist.

Now the wreath comes with a spool of burlap but I wanted mine to look more spring like so instead I wrapped some chevron crushed curry ribbon around it instead.  All the blooms you see on the wreath also all come in the kit.

These are already frindged for you, you just have to wrap them up to make the bloom. 

Theres different sized flowers in a range of colours and see those little brads, they also come in the kit.
You also get those lovely buttons in the kit too!!

Hope you liked todays post

Flowering Flourishes Tutorial

I've had some requests from readers on how to make some of the cards I showcase on my blog.  With this in mind I'm going to try, where possible, to pop little tutorials on here so you can remake the card should you so wish.  Here is the first.

Here is the card we are going to make, it's a 6 x 6 and it uses Flowering Flourishes, Petite Petals and Teeny tiny sentiments stamp sets.

You will also need;
Crushed Curry Card
Whisper White Card
Gumball Green Ink
Crushed Curry Ink
Word Window Punch
Modern Label Punch
Petite Petals Punch
Crushed Curry Candy dots
Paper Trimmer
Score board

Make a base card measuring 6" x 6", you can make this from A4 card by cutting one piece of card 6"x8"

Score this card on the long side at 2"
Fold along the score line
Then cut a piece measuring 6"x6".  Glue this to the flap of your 6"x8" piece of card and you'll have your 6"x6" card base.
Cut two pieces of whisper white card measuring 5 3/4" x 5 3/4"
Glue one of these to the inside of your base card
On the second square of whisper white card stamp out the large and medium Flourishes corner to corner in gumball green.
On a separate piece of whisper white stamp out five petite petals in crushed curry and punch these out using the petite petals punch.
Using foam pads add these along your flourishes, add a few pearls to the centre of your petite petals and along some of the flourishes as shown above.
Stamp out the sentiment using the Teeny Tiny sentiments stamp and punch out using the word window, punch out a modern label in crushed curry and glue your sentiment to this.
Place the sentiment using foam pads to the bottom right of your card.  To the top left hand corner add 3 candy dots, then stick the whole thing to the front of your base card.
