Colour Creations - Lovely Lipstick

http://whatcathymade.com.au/awh-colour-creations-blog-hop-week-26-lovely-lipstick/ 

Well here we are again with another beautiful colour. Lovely Lipstick is such a rich Pink colour I wouldn't mind having a lipstick that colour. Today I have kept it fairly simple with no sentiment on the outside, only the floral image and some red rhinestones.

 
I started out with my main card being Lovely Lipstick and layered with a Whisper White that I run through my Big Shot using the Quilt Top Embossing folder. Then I took 2 layering ovals and cut them out one in each of the 2 colours mentioned above and glues them together before adding Dimensionals and placing this on the centre of the front of the card.
I stamped my image from the Healing Hugs stamp set and 3 sets of leaves before fussy cutting them out and added to the ovals on the front of the card.



I did this using more Dimensionals for the rose and them gluing the leave into place after so the I could put them just were I wanted them. I then added 3 Red Rhinestone at the top on the right-hand side and another 3 at the bottom on the left-hand side just to finish off the front of the card.


I added a Whisper White insert to the card and stamped in Lovely Lipstick using the crosses stamp from the same stamp set and also the sentiment. I don't think the front of the card really needs a sentiment as the work on the inside say it all.
Everything used in this project can be found in the 2018-2019 Annual Catalogue, if you would like to purchase any or all of these items please give me a call or email so that I might help you with your purchase. Thank you.

Heart of Christmas - Week 15

https://clairedaly.typepad.com/sisterhood_of_the_travell/2018/11/heart-of-christmas-week-15-christmas-creations-bought-to-you-by-the-art-with-heart-stampin-up-team.html 

Well here we are again, Hello Everyone, Week 15 and now only 4 more Wednesdays before Christmas Scary Ah?
 I hope you have all finished your Christmas Shopping (Yes I have) and I have also sent all my parcels off around the world. So the only Christmas cards left to make are for my work mates. So this week I have made a really simple card, but I think it's very effective I love the way the tufted Embossing folder look on the Gold Foil Sheet.




So using up the last of the Joyous Noel DSP (which I love so much) I started with a gray granite Card base and added the Gold Foil Sheet and DSP at a 1/3 to 2/3 ratio and added the Merry Merlot & Copper Ribbon down the length to hide the join. I stamped the Christmas wishes from the Peaceful Poinsettia Stamp Set using Merry Merlot Ink and then mounted this onto another gold circle and attached this to the front of the card using Dimensionals.


Using the same stamp set I stamped the insert on Whisper White card and used Merry Merlot and Tranquil Tide ink.  All the items used for the project can be found in the 2018 - 2019 Annual Catalogue and the 2018 Holiday Catalogue. If you would like to purchase any or all of the product used in the project please give me a call or email so that I can help you with your purchase. Please be aware that the 2018 Holiday Catalogue finishes on the 2nd January 2019 so you will have to get in quick.

Colour Creations - Lemon Lime Twist

http://whatcathymade.com.au/?p=3085

Hi Everyone, how are you all doing? Well I hope?
This week the colour is Lemon Lime Twist, this is a very bright colour but I love it. I decided that this week my card would be very much a 2 colour card so I used only the Lemon Lime Twist and Black. I think the effect is really good. What do you Think?

I used the Daisy Delight Stamp set and punch along with the stars from the Christmas Pines Stamp Set. and Clear faceted gems. Placing layer upon layer and finishing with a strip for my sentiment.
I stamped and punch out 3 set of the daisy so that it was a very full flower and coloured in the petals using the marker pen in the same colour.





The only bit of White Card I used was the small square on the front as I thought it gave the flower a better look and the insert.


I kept the inside of the card very simple making the outside of the card the focal point.
All the product used in this project can be found in the 2018 -2019 Annual Catalogue, if you would like to purchase any or all of these items please give me a call or email so that I can help you with your purchase.

Hi Everyone, Here we are at week 14 of the Heart of Christmas Blog-Hop. With only 4 more Wednesdays before Christmas not counting this one there isn't long to go now.
This week I have gone for a simple but elegant look (or at least I think so).

I started with a Gray Granite card base and added at Cherry Cobbler layer before adding 3 strips of Joyous Noel DSP. I then added a copper foil strip and a Cherry cobbler strip across the front of the card before Layering my sentiment onto Copper Foil and Cherry Cobbler.


I stamped my sentiment using the peaceful Noel Stamp set and Cherry Cobbler ink. I mounted the 3 layers together and then added dimensionals before placing this on the front of the card.


Using the same stamp set I stamped the insert using Cherry Cobbler and Tranquil Tide ink on Whisper White card.

Colour Creations - Highland Heather

http://whatcathymade.com.au/awh-colour-creations-blog-hop-week-week-week-24-highland-heather/

Hi Everyone, here we are again with another colour creations blog for you. Today our colour is Highland Heather a beautiful lilac colour I love it.

I have chosen a stamp set that I think works really well with this colour and I have kept it very simple. I will be adding a tutorial for this card on my Facebook group so keep and eye out for it at Di's Den for Stamping Crafting and Tutorials I post a new tutorial every Sunday morning.


I started out with a Very Vanilla card base and added to large triangles using the Highland Heather card. I then layered 3 cards together starting with Very Vanilla followed by Highland Heather and lastly another Very Vanilla. I stamped the image using the Accented Blooms stamp set and coloured in the flowers using  my marker pens.


I attached dimensionals to the back of these layers before adding this to the front of the card.
I used the White organza ribbon (retired) and run it through my Highland Heather ink pad to colour it I had to wait for it to dry and then tied the bow and glue it to the front of the card. Still looking a little plain I went though my stash and fount this pretty butterfly to finish off the top of the card. I then stamped the Hello using the Highland Heather ink and again attached this to the card using dimensionals.


I kept the inside of the card simple using the Highland Heather ink to stamp the sentiment and then coloured in the small flowers using my marker pens.
All the item except the Ribbon and Butterfly can be found in the 2018-2019 Annual catalogue. If you would like to purchase any or all of these items please give me a call or email so that I can help you.

Hi All, Well here we are at week 13 of the Heart of Christmas Blog-Hop. This week I have chosen to used Items that are in the both the Annual and Holiday Catalogue.


I started with a  Cherry Cobbler card base and added a Whisper White Layer that I had run through my Big Shot using the Quilt Top Embossing folder then I Added another Cherry Cobbler layer along with a Whisper White layer for my stamped image from the Holiday Catalogue called "So Santa" I borrowed this set off of a friend's mother. I then stamped my Sentiment on some more Whisper White and using the die from the "Merry Christmas"Thinlits I cut it out and then cut another one in Cherry Cobbler and placed behind.


I mounted both my image and sentiment onto dimensionals and then place them on the front of the  card.  Oops I did colour in the Santa image using my markers first.

I kept the insert simple by just stamping on some more Whisper White the greeting and two rows of holly. I was really happy with is card and I don't want to give the stamp set back......boo hoo
I might have to get this one as well.

Colour Creations - Gray Granite

http://whatcathymade.com.au/awh-colour-creations-blog-hop-week-week-23-gray-granite/

Hi Everyone, Well we are at the end of the G's with Gray Granite, and I love it.
I have chosen to used the Beautiful You stamp set as I think it just sets it off. I started with a Gray Granite card base and add the copper foil sheet before added another layer using the Joyous Noel DSP. Even though this DSP is classed as Christmas I thought it went really well in my theme.


I then added a Early Espresso layer on an angle before adding my Whisper White Layer stamped with my lady image. I copied this over to the sentiment tag and using my White Gel pen I added a stitch line on the dark layer and on the White layer I used the Gray Granite Marker for the stitching. I finished off the front with metallic pearls.





I kept the insert very simple stamping on more Whisper White card in Gray Granite ink.
All items in this project are in the current 2018-2019 Annual Catalogue, if you would like to purchase all or any of these items please give me a call.
