Foil Card - Day 3
Today's card colour was decided by my 8 year old grandson Jayden.
 I couldn't decide on a colour to use so he chose one.

Tempting Turquoise, Whisper White and Gold Foiled card.

I die cut the Flourish and edge pieces in the gold and embossed the White card with 
Sparkle Textured Impressions Embossing Folder.

The messages used were from Flourishing Phrases stamp set.

Today should be Foil card day 3 projects but I must apologise.
Yesterday was my birthday and I was kept very busy by my
 amazing friends and family well into the night!
However, some of the beautiful cards that I received were made by my Stampin' Up! 
friends. So I thought I would show some of them to you.

This first card was made by Cary. It's absolutely beautiful because as usual she make very 
creative cards etc. She used Falling Flowers stamp set and the Large Letter Framelits to make this.

 I've shown you the inside because of how lovely Cary has decorated it. 

The rest of the cards were made by some of our lovely ladies who join us in our classes.
This card was using the Beautiful You stamp set made by Debbie.

The next was made using Big Day stamp set and made by Debs.

This one is from Lizzie and made using Flower Shop stamp set and the Pansy punch.

This last card was made by Kate and she used the Birthday Blast stamp set and Star Blast Edgelits.

I consider myself to be a very lucky person to have such talented friends.
Thank you to everyone for the birthday wishes, xxx

Foiled Card - Day 2

Today's card has far less foil on than yesterdays.
When I cut down foiled sheets I usually keep the strips and 
so I decided to use them as an accent on this card.

This card is made using the Very Vanilla cardstock and the Washi Tape from the Urban Underground range of products, and once again the stamp set Urban District.

This time, I stamped the letters individually and cut them out using a craft knife and scissors. 
Then mounted them onto Delightful Dijon cardstock

The other accent on this card is a few of the embellishments from the same range Urban Underground.
There are screw heads, stars and nuts as above. 

There are the most mazing phrases in this stamp set.

 One of this month's classes, our ladies made these lovely cards. 

 All the products used were by Stampin' Up! 
The Night of Navy ones are from the Floral Boutique range
 and the Real Red are Sending Love Designer Series Paper packs.

As always, our ladies love to put their own ideas into their projects which we love to see.

Last but not least is the lacy effect on the following cards by using the 
Floral Boutique washi tapes and Detailed Floral Thinlits Dies.

The stamp sets used were Floral Phrases, Designer Tin of Cards, Birthday Blossoms, 
Cottage Greetings and One Big Meaning. 
I hope you'll agree that they have made some beautiful cards.

Weekly Inspiration

Hello, Well, what CAN I say?
 Cary really did loose it with her Marbles Technique last week didn't she?
For this week's inspiration I am showing you some projects made using 
Stampin' Up! Foil sheets.

This first card was made using the Silver Foil sheet as a main mat for the front of the card.

Using the NEW textured impressions embossing folder Hexagon, I embossed the foil.
The folder is a very thick folder and it's designed so to ensure the detail perfectly.

I believe this is called an easel fold card but this time I added an additional fold too.
I used Urban District and One Wild Ride stamp sets for this card.

The DAD was stamped onto Very Vanilla cardstock and then mounted onto Delightful Dijon.
I love the detail that has gone into the letters.

 The additional fold at first covers the message inside as above.

The finished image.

All things bright....

Today 'I've taken it just a step further in the marble marbling front.....I've added bling!!
Now everyone needs a little twinkle in their life now and then and for me one of the most elegant I've found is Stampin' Up!s Dazzling Diamonds.
To create the backgrounds for today's cards I used Versamark reinker in my box of marbles again but this time I applied Heat and Stick powder. Then once I'd heated the powder I sprinkled the gorgeous Dazzling Diamonds over and then gently tapped off the excess. I then quickly used the heat tool to set the glitter and using a soft brush to remove and remaining excess.
The first card shows the process on some soft mint macaron card stock. The second card I tried the process on Stampin' Up! vellum oh boy is it pretty! the photos really don't do either sample any real justice.

Well that it from me this week I do hope you've enjoyed the samples I've shared this week...I enjoyed making them !
Please join us next week when Gill will be sharing some more fab creation with us.
Have fun
Cary xx

pushing the boat out...

Well I had fun playing with the marbles Versamark and clear embossing powder .....So I just had to try other types of embossing powder!!! now my favourite metallic at the moment is the gorgeous copper especially when used with Night of Navy so this is the first powder I had a go with.
Here's the card I made using the copper and navy.

Then I had a play with another of my favourite combinations Crumb Cake and white embossing powder. For this card I also used vellum and layered it over the background to give it another dimension.
