Cottage Wall Revisited

Standard

One of the most viewed posts on my blog is one that I wrote almost 2 years ago.  It features a set of cards I made for a class using the gorgeous Cottage Wall Designer Series Paper.  I still have quite a bit of that paper left (I bet you’re surprised 🙂 ) so I decided to make up another set of cards using it.

Card #1 features a Confetti White base, a layer of Rich Razzleberry and some gorgeous striped Cottage Wall DSP.  I’ve stamped the main image from Field Flowers in Rich Razzleberry ink, and it has been layered onto a piece of Old Olive cardstock.

Card #2 has a Rich Razzleberry base.  I’ve stamped the entire base using the thong image from Sunny Fun and Rich Razzleberry ink. The main image (also from Sunny Fun) has been coloured using Stampin’ Up! markers.  I die cut the brackets using the Hearts and Brackets die.  The greeting ‘Celebrate’ is from the Topsy Turvy Celebration set.

Card #3 has an Old Olive base, topped with a layer of Certainly Celery cardstock.  A Top Note die cut in the white/green polka dot print from the Cottage Wall pack is a perfect accent layer.  The cute hot air balloon images are from Up, Up and Away and have been stamped in Peach Parfait ink.

And finally, card #4 has a Certainly Celery card base.  I’ve stamped the Fine Flourish image in Certainly Celery ink.  A piece of the cute butterfly and flower Cottage Wall DSP accents the base of the card.  I also added 4 butterflies which I cut using Rich Razzleberry cardstock and the Beautiful Wings Embosslit.

Hope these provided you with some inspiration to dig out some retired paper and actually make something with it! lol!  I’ve added these cards, along with some kits to make them, to my etsy shop.

Card kits for sale

Standard

I came up with this set of cards the other week when I was trying to see just how far I could stretch the remnants of my pack of Hand Drawn Designer Series Paper (from the last Stampin’ Up! catalogue).

As luck would have it, I had more than enough DSP to make up 10 kits for these cards. I’m selling the kits for just $10 each, including postage within Australia.  The Hand Drawn DSP is perfect for either female/male cards and looks great with a large variety of stamp sets.

Each card kit includes precut cardstock, embellishments (like the die cut butterflies and scallop edged border), ribbon, envelopes and brads.  You will also receive a sheet of basic instructions, and you’re free to email me if you have any further questions regarding the assembly.  The kits DO NOT include any stamped images because of copyright restrictions.  You will also need your own basics like adhesives and scissors to finish up the cards.

I have just 10 of these kits available – if you would like to get your hands on one, please email me or give me a call on 0425 815 857!

Thanks,

June Christmas Card Kit

Standard

It’s that time of the month again – time for June’s Christmas card kit!

Card Kits are a super easy way to create a variety of cards without a huge outlay on embellishments from you.  Each card kit that I offer will be displayed on the Card Kits page (see link above), and I’ll feature them in a post of their own when first released.

Card Kits may be posted anywhere within Australia for only $1.50, and include all of the supplies you will need to create your cards excluding stamps, adhesive, scissors etc.  Please note that due to copyright restrictions the kits do not include stamped images.

I NEVER get around to making and sending Christmas cards (pretty slack, hey?), so I thought it would be great to get a head start on them for this year.  I’m sure many of you are just the same way.  We have the best intentions, but late November hits and no cards :-)

As you can see I have used a couple of stamp sets on this card ~ Winter Post and Le Jardin Botanique (for the tree).

These cards are easy to create, with the kit you will receive a sheet of instructions and of course you can call or email me if you have any troubles.

The June Christmas Card Kit is just $10, plus postage of $1.50 anywhere within Australia.  Alternatively you may pick up the card kit from my place.

Introducing Card Kits

Standard

Card Kits are a super easy way to create a variety of cards without a huge outlay on embellishments from you.  Each card kit that I offer will be displayed on the Card Kits page (see link above), and I’ll feature them in a post of their own when first released.

At this stage I will be offering 2 card kits per month, one a Christmas kit and the other will be for a variety of occasions.

Card Kits may be posted anywhere within Australia for only $1.50, and include all of the supplies you will need to create your cards excluding stamps, adhesive, scissors etc.  Please note that due to copyright restrictions the kits do not include stamped images.

My first Card Kit is a Christmas set.  I NEVER get around to making and sending Christmas cards (pretty slack, hey?), so I thought it would be great to get a head start on them for this year.  I’m sure many of you are just the same way.  We have the best intentions, but late November hits and no cards 🙂

As you can see I have used the Holiday Lineup stamp set for my sample cards.  This particular card layout suits a large number of Christmas stamp sets, and it’s really easy to adapt it for what you have on hand.  Below is a sample using the exact same supplies as my elf card, but I’ve used the Winter Post stamp set (it was much quicker to make than the elf card too!).

The May Christmas Card Kit is just $10, plus postage of $1.50 anywhere within Australia.  Alternatively you may pick up the card kit from my place.

To order this kit, call me on 0425 815 857 or you can email me.
