RemARKably Created Blog Hop

Hello and welcome to the RemARKably Created Blog Hop!

You have hopped here from BFF Stampers and are now at Gather and Create.

The theme for today’s hop is to take something from the Annual Catalogue and pair it with something from the Spring/Summer Catalogue. For me, that seemed like too much fun to miss. The only difficult decision was to choose what I was going to use!



When Picture Perfect DSP met Window Shopping stamps and Window Box Thinlits.

Window Box Thinlits
Window Shopping Stamp Set
Picture Perfect Party

When you put them together you get great party packaging and cards.

 

Picture Perfect and Window Shopping from Stampin’ Up!

Instructions for the box

  • Die Cut box shape x2 from Lemon Lime Twist
  • Die Cut the the large top panel only from Picture Perfect DSP, trim to size – keep the remaining DSP for the card
  • Use trimmer to cut x7 squares in Berry Burst measuring 4.5cm x 4.5cm
  • Use Trimmer to cut x7 squares in Lemon Lime Twist measuring 4cm x 4cm
  • Die cut x Lemon Lime Twist squares using candle framelits
  • Keep on Candle square to use on card
  • Fussy Cut bow from DSP
  • Cut piece of Berry Burst card 23mm x 111mm and use the banner shape die at each end. Fold where scored to create the banner. Adhere with Multi purpose liquid glue on the banner tails. Adhere bow with dimensionals.
  • Cut tag shape in Whisper White, stamp sentiment and adhere Bermuda Bay enamel dot. Attach to banner with Silver Baker’s Twine.
Window Box Framelits

 

 

Instructions for card

  • Use trimmer to cut x1 square in Berry Burst measuring 4.5cm x 4.5cm
  • Stamp sentiment on Whisper White card 1cm wide – trim to desired length.
  • Cut DSP left over from the box. 1x 5.5cm x 2.5cm and 1x 5.5cm x 7cm. Adhere to front of card.
  • Wrap Silver Baker’s Twine around card and tie into a bow.
  • Adhere sentiment and candles using dimensionals.
  • Add x3 Bermuda Bay Enamel dots

The ‘flames’ on both projects were coloured with Wink of Stella.

 


 

Don’t forget the envelope! I stamped a bow on the front and used 2 1/4 circle punch to create a liner. These Narrow Note Cards and Envelopes are my fave!

 

Be sure to check out all the inspiration on the rest of the hop.

Happy stamping

New ways with Vellum and Patterned Paper

Fresh and Fruity

I’ve got a fresh and fruity project for you today! I used Vellum and Designer Series Paper (patterned paper) to create a jam jar drink card that’s bang up to date.

When Jar of Love meets Tutti-Frutti

I had one of those light bulb moments, the kind you have when it’s actually time to go to sleep! And thought the Tutti-Frutti DSP would look good paired with the Jar of Love set – so here is the end-result of that flash of inspiration.

 

Jar of love meets Tutti-Frutti

I’d love for you to tell which one is your favourite colour combo.


It’s possible that the little tear drop epoxy sticker on the ”lime” is one of my favourite things about this project 🙂

Give it a go

If you’d like to create your own fruity jar of love, everything you need is listed below.

Bubble Over and Wood Crate Cola Combo!

Hello!

I’m having an ‘all things cola’ day! Here’s the project I created:

 

Wood Crate and Bubble Over card

 

I wanted to make the Wood Crate and knew I wanted it to have with sweets in it so I went searching through my craft cupboards. every crafter has a stash of things to eat, right??

The only thing I found was 2 small bags of Haribo cola bottles and from there the whole project light bulb went off. The Bubble Over suite was a perfect combo to use with my little cola bottles find!

I made a video explaining how you can create your own mini card and sweetie crate. It could be made as a Valentines gift too, just add hearts 🙂

Happiest of days from Stampin’ Up! Pretty fancy fold card.

Hi everyone!

I made this pretty birthday card live on Facebook on Thursday. It’s so fun to do and uses every stamp in the Happiest of days stamp set!

The sentiments and images would lend themselves not only to birthdays but to lots of other celebrations too such as Wedding, Engagement and Bridal Showers.

The first picture shows the front of the card.

 


I kept the look soft with Sahara sand and coloured the images in using Watercolor pencils, no need to worry about staying in lines! The imagery is perfect for a more informal look and our blender pens work beautifully with the pencils for that. If you want to used aqua painters to change the card for shimmer, glossy or watercolour paper.

 

 

View from the top of the card showing all the internal panels.

 

I shared the measurements for this fancy fold on a previous post which you can see here

Close up of the panels.

 

I’ll be demonstrating a brand new project on Facebook Live, Thursday 1 February 8pm. You can find me here:

https://www.facebook.com/esthergatherandcreate/

I’d love for you to join me for chat and crafting 🙂

Below is the list of products I used to make this card, simply click on the picture to take a closer look or to purchase.

Picnic With You – Stampin’ Up!

Hi everyone!

 

I’ve made no secret of the fact that I am SO ready for Spring! Weather in the UK was particularly yuk yesterday and I want more light, more sun and less cold!

While I’m waiting I created my own but of Spring with ink, stamps and paper (and a few other bits and bobs)

The Picnic with You stamp set is so cute – it even has it’s own teeny weeny salt and pepper shakers 🙂

Obviously it has lots of picnic images but today I decided to focus on the flower basket element.  I would highly recommend the bundle so that you get the dies to cut out all those cute shapes. The basket also has an embossing die which gives a great texture to your project. The magnetic platform will really help when lining up the dies with your stamped images.

Picnic with you bundle

I embossed the card base with the  Simple Stripes embossing folder it makes me think of pretty flowers against a white picket fence.

Picnic with you bundle

I embossed the envelope flap too.

Picnic with you bundle

 

and we mustn’t neglect the inside!

Some of the flowers were raised up with dimensionals, as was the basket.
