Little Twinkle - Eclipse card

Our Annual Catalogue is always a great resource for inspiration, and I simply CASEd (Copy and Share Everything) from within its pages for this card.  It comes from the Twinkle Twinkle suite on a double page spread on pages 82-83 of the 2018-19 Annual Catalogue.

I think their sample was a lot smaller, but I made mine into a full size card to make use of that gorgeous paper.

To see what I did for inside the card, you'll have to watch the Video to see what surprise is in store.  I hope you like it.

Petal Promenade - Lantern Card

My upline, Amanda, sent me some materials to make up samples for a Display at her team training on  Saturday 14th July,  and I haven't been able to share till after the meeting was done and dusted.

If you are a girlie girl and love flowers, then this pack of DSP is tailor made for you.  They're all floral designs with beautiful flowers.  I must confess that I'm not a flowery type of gal - so this presented quite a challenge for me to be inspired.  I will share what I made in the coming weeks, and I hope I rose to the challenge successfully.  At the time of writing, the meeting is still a fortnight away - so time will tell. 

Now if you look at the card, you'd think - hmm complicated - but I assure you, it's really easy and simple to assemble so long as you have the right tools and like gluing and sticking!  lol!  Are you ready for the challenge?  I've also listed both the Imperial measurements below and its metric conversions so you don't have to write it down whilst watching the video.  Enjoy!

Time for Tea?

This is one of the cards I made as Display Stamper for Amanda's Team Training Day yesterday.  I had a mixture of projects ranging from 10 minute wonders to things that required a plethora of products, all created from using a half pack of the Petal Promenade DSP.

The one pictured here is classified as quick and simple, using the Time for Tea photopolymer stamps bundled with Spot of Tea Framelits Dies.  I stamped the tea cup image and die cut that with the Big Shot to use as a "feature" popped up on dimensionals with Rose metallic thread looped behind as an accent.  

Some simple stamping in Mossy Meadow to "frame" the cup, gluing and sticking the layers together and you're done!

To finish, I tied a flat knot with Petal Pink ribbon from the Combo Metallic Ribbon pack.



Petal Promenade DSP happens to be one of the choices of DSP on the selection list for July's Buy 3 get 1 free promotion which expires on 31 July.  You can view the papers in my blogpost HERE .

Lilypad Lake Bundle - pocket card

I thought for a change that I would do a pocket card so I could make use of the circle tab punch.  Some items just don't see the light of day and I've been meaning to take a look at the Lilypad Lake Bundle.  Instead of doing the obvious which was with the heron and lilypad, I opted for a nautical theme.

In a previous life, we were stationed in Hong Kong and being an island we were surrounded by water and I'd forgotten how much I love to be by the sea.  It calms me and I love hearing the lapping water and breaking waves.

Did you see those lovely Delicate Lace Edgelits in the catalogue?  They make such nice finishes to a card.  Hope you like it!

Love You To Pieces - Part 2

Following from last Friday's Love You to Pieces - Part 1 where I made four mini puzzles in four separate boxes with their own colour coordinated "mat" as party favours, I thought it would be cool to create a box which housed all four puzzles as a set in a bigger box.
