Tag It Tuesday Stampin’ Up Daffodil Delight Treat Cup Favours

Last one I promise!! I had to break out the treat cups as these are super cute and I was gutted to see them on the retiring list, so if you want to stock up, be quick and have a look at the list HERE!

Daffodil Delight Treat Cup Favours

Daffodil Delight Treat Cup Favours

For my Treat Cup favours firstly I took some Daffodil Delight cardstock and cut it to 3 inches x 4 inches and some of the Daffodil Delight Background Designer Paper Stack cut to 2 6/8 inches x 3 7/8 inches. I wanted to prettify my DSP but didn’t want it to only 2 inches wide as this wouldn’t cover my treat cups!! So rather than sliding my DSP into the Ornate Tag Topper punch as usual if you see the picture below you can see I slid my DSP in over the feed and could still punch my tag and then just snip the edge off either side with some scissors.

So taking one of my Circle Treat Cups I peeled off the adhesive from around the edge and filled with yummy treats and popped it on to my cardstock.  I now need to make my circle in my DSP so it can pop on to my cardstock over my treat cup. I used one of my Circle Framelit Collection and my Big Shot and die cut a circle out of my DSP. I adhered this then to my cardstock and treat cup with some TonBow Mono Multi Glue.

Easy peasy!! To finish my treat cup favours off I attached one of the Something Borrowed Embellishments to some Linen Thread and popped this on to my favour with a Glue Dot. To cover this I tied a little bow with some 1/8 Silver Taffeta Ribbon and popped this on with another glue dot. Final touch was three Basic Pearl Jewels in the corner. Hope you agree fresh pretty and perfect for a summer wedding or a summer party!

Tag It Tuesday Stampin’ Up For Peep’s Sake Easter Tag

I am trying to introduce some themes to my daily posts to challenge myself to make different projects.  So Tuesday’s will now be known as “Tag it Tuesday’s”.  Well we all know Stampin’ Up do amazing punches including the tag punches which I love!  However, you do not always have to use them as plain tags, albeit at Christmas this is mighty handy!  But throughout the year you may not feel the need to break out your tag punches but they can be used for so many other things!

I decided to create a tag to adorn a bag of Easter yummies using my ever faithful Ornate Tag Topper punch.

For Peep's Sake Tag

For Peep’s Sake Tag

Taking a piece of Whisper White Cardstock and some Daffodil Delight cardstock I cut them both down to 4 1/2 inches x 2 inches and used my Ornate Tag Topper Punch to create two tags.  On my Whisper White tag using my favourite stamp set of the moment, For Peep’s Sake (love it, its so cute!!!), I stamped the main chick image in Daffodil Delight Classic Ink.  For my sentiment I partially inked my stamped with Daffodil Delight ink by covering the top half of my stamp with masking tape and then after removing this I used the Costal Cabana and Strawberry Slush Markers from the In Colour 2013 – 2015 Stampin Write Marker Set and with a little huff I stamped my sentiment.

On my Daffodil Delight tag in matching Daffodil Delight Classic Ink I stamped the row of Easter Eggs image from the stamp set all over my tag. On a separate piece of Whisper White cardstock I also stamped this image in Pistachio Pudding, Daffodil Delight, Costal Cabana, Crisp Cantaloupe and Strawberry Slush Classic Ink. I cut an egg out of each colour and popped these on to my Whisper White tag at the feet of my little chick with some Stampin Dimensionals. Using the Small Oval Punch I punched an oval out of some Daffodil Delight cardstock and lined this up with the hole in my tags and a punched a hole for my ribbon to go through.

To finish my tags I sponged all the edges with Daffodil Delight ink and popped some Daffodil Delight Candy Dots onto the front and then using some Crushed Curry Taffeta Riboon tied it round a Cellophane Gusseted bag filled with yummy chocolate eggs.

Tag it Tuesday Stampin’ Up Sale-a-Bration Irresistibly Yours Thinking of You Cards

I am trying to introduce some themes to my daily posts to challenge myself to make different projects.  So today is “Tag it Tuesday” LOL.  Well we all know Stampin’ Up do amazing punches including the tag punches which I love!  However, you do not always have to use them as plain tags, albeit at Christmas this is mighty handy!  But throughout the year you may not feel the need to break out your tag punches but they can be used for so many other things!

I decided to create a couple of cards incorporating the Ornate Tag Topper Punch as an embellishment piece on my  card front.

So I took some Pistachio Pudding and So Saffron A4 Cardstock and I cut the So Saffron piece to 8 2/8inches x 5 7/8 inches and scored it at 4 1/8 inches and cut the Pistachio Pudding piece to 11 6/8 inches x 4 1/8 inches and scored this at 5 7/8 inches for my card bases.  I took some of the gorgeous Irresistibly Yours Designer Series Paper, free as part of the Sale-a-Bration promotion with every £45 you spend, see more details below, and cut two pieces to 5 5/8 inches x 3 7/8 inches and a further two pieces to 4 inches x 2 inches.  I then sponged on some Pistachio Pudding Classic Ink on to one of the larger pieces and some So Saffron Classic Ink on to the other larger piece of DSP.  Taking the two smaller pieces I sponged on Pink Pirouette Classic Ink on to one piece and some Wisteria Wonder Classic Ink on to the other piece.

Taking my Ornate Tag Topper punch I punched the two tag pieces from these smaller pieces of DSP.  To embellish the Tag I used the floral stamp image from the For The New Two Stamp Set.  I stamped this in all four colours and fussy cut this out.  I then took a small strip of Pistachio Pudding Cardstock and So Saffron Cardstock and stamped my sentiment from the Sheltering Tree Stamp Set in Memento Black Ink.  I thread some Pink Pirouette Seam Binding Ribbon through my pink tag and some Crushed Curry Ribbon through my Wisteria Wonder tag and then popped these up on some Stampin Dimensionals and adhered them to my card front.  I then adhered the stamped images and my sentiment banner.  I also took my Four Petal Flower Punch from the Itty Bitty Accent Punch Pack and punched 3 flowers from some Pistachio Pudding cardstock and some So Saffron cardstock.  I added some Basic Pearl Jewels to these and added them to my card front with some Mini Glue Dots.  I popped both card fronts onto my card bases with more Stampin Dimensionals and finished off with a few more Basic Pearl Jewels.

For the inside I just popped in some Whisper White Cardstock cut to 5 5/8 inches x 3 7/8 inches and stamped the floral images again from the For The New Two stamp set in coordinating colours.

I had no idea how these cards were going to turn out, I didn’t have a plan going into them only that I wanted to use the Ornate Tag Topper Punch!

Stampin’ Up Mum’s Love Mother’s Day Gift Tag

So you have seen my Mother’s Day card and Curvy Keepsake Box, now its time for my gift tag.  I am certainly getting my money’s worth out of my Mum’s Love Stamp Set from the Spring and Summer Catalogue .

Mum's Love Gift Tag

Mum’s Love Gift Tag

I took a piece of Whisper White cardstock and cut it at 5 1/2 inches (13.9cm) x 2 inches (5cm) and a piece Marina Mist A4 Cardstock measuring the same and using my Ornate Tag Topper punch I punched out two tags.  I then took a piece of my leftover embossed vellum from Sunday’s card (from A4 Vellum and the Something Lacy background stamp) cut this down and punched this into a tag piece.

On my Whisper White and Marina Mist cardstock I stamped images from the Mum’s Love stamp set.  I began by stamping images using the stamping off technique onto some paper first and then stamping on to my tags, I then stamped the main image and the sentiment in solid colour with the Marina Mist Classic Ink .

To bring my tag pieces together I threaded some Silver Baker’s Twine through one of the ever so pretty Something Borrowed Embellishments and tied it off.  I then used some sheer ribbon to tie my three tags and my embellishment together.

Stampin’ Up Sale-a-Bration Best Day Ever Card

Well I said I liked to get inky and I chose to focus on one of the colours in the Best Day Ever Designer series paper, Calypso Coral, and yes I got into a mess but that is what crafting is all about and I love messy especially when you can produce something that you love at the end of it all!!

The Best Day Ever stamp set and the Best Year Ever Designer series paper is the Sale-a-Bration product of the week so I took the challenge of using those products to demonstrate how these “Free” products can produce beautiful things, and yes you heard me “Free”.  Both the stamp set and designer series paper are part of the SAB promotion where you can choose a “Free” product from the SAB catalogue for every £45 you spend on Stampin’ Up products, Bargain!!

Best Day Ever SAB Card

So I took some Calypso Coral Classic Ink and A4 Cardstock, which I cut in half (length ways) and scored it to make a top folding portrait card base. I then used two of the smaller image stamps to build my background using tone on tone stamping with the Calypso Coral ink.  There are several little images in this stamp set that you can use to build up loads of gorgeous backgrounds!  I took a piece of Whisper White cardstock 2 inches x 4.5 inches (5cm x 11.4cm) and used my ornate tag topper punch to create my tag and focal piece on which I stamped my sentiment and added some, yes you guessed it, Calypso Coral ribbon from the Best Year Ever embellishment kit and yes this is also “Free” as part of the SAB promotion!!

I used some Whisper White and Calypso coral cardstock and the Petite Petals punch to create some flower embellishments to which I sponged the edges (love sponging lol, I literally want to sponge everything!) and added some Pearl Basic Jewels.  I popped all this onto my stamped card base with some Stampin’ Dimensionals and the final piece I added a trio of Pearls on my tag and its all done and I was very inky (orange fingers!).

The inside was simple just a piece of Whisper White card stock 1/8 inch smaller on all sides than my card base and a couple of strips of the Best Year Ever designer series paper and a couple of the left over petite petal flowers that I had left over.

Stampin’ Up Sale-a-Bration Big Day Birthday Card

Since I received the Sale-a-Bration Big Day stamp set and the Best Year Ever Designer Series Paper , which are both free as part of the Sale-a-Bration promotion (details below), I have been dying to experiment with them and there is nothing like Stampin’ on a Saturday!!

SAB Big Day stamp set

So I chose two of the papers from the designer series paper and a sheet of Pool Party cardstock for my card base measuring 11 6/8 inches x 4 1/8 inches (A4 cardstock cut in half), which I scored at 5 7/8 inches with my brand spanking new Simply Scored Scoring tool, which I am so excited about (it is like Christmas every time I get a delivery!!).  I then cut a piece of Whisper White cardstock to 5 1/2 inches x 3 6/8 inches as my front panel, to which I adhered two strips of designer series paper measuring 5 inches x 1 1/2 inches and 4 1/2 inches x 1 1/2 inches length ways with snail adhesive.

Then on to another new toy (eek) I cut a piece of Whisper White cardstock to 2 inches wide and used my Ornate Tag Topper Punch to create a tag which I cut down to 2 1/2 inches long.

Then came out the lovely Sale-a-Bration Big Day stamp set and with Bermuda Bay Classic Ink I stamped the largest sentiment in the set on the tag.  I then used the Costal Cabana ribbon, part of the Best Year Ever embellishment pack (free with SAB), to tie through the tag as an embellishment.  I used the star punch from the Itty Bitty Accents punch pack to punch out 3 stars, 1 from the DSP and 2 from the Pool Party cardstock.  Using Stampin’ Dimensionals I adhered the tag and the stars to the front panel of Whisper White cardstock and used some Basic Rhinestones to add to the stars and the tag.  Once all adhered I used Stampin Dimensionals to pop my front panel to my card base.

For the inside of my card I took the matching sentiment to the one I stamped on the front of my card and in the Pool Party classic ink I stamped this on to a strip of Whisper White cardstock measuring 3/4 inch x 3 1/2 inches and another strip of DSP measuring 1 inch x 4 inches and adhered these to the bottom of the inside of my card.

To finish my card off I used a piece of the DSP measuring 8 7/8 x 8/78 inches and my envelope punch board and created a matching envelope.

I hope you like my latest project, I love the colours of this card very Springtime!!
