A Quick Card

Posted by Jeannette on 9 May 2011

Here’s another Wheel card, this one is Clean and Simple and so quick to make if you need a card in a hurry. The layering is raised off the card by dimensionals which you can’t see in the photo. I ran an Aqua Painter over the leaves and flowers which is very subtle.

Supplies Used: (All Stampin’ Up! Unless Otherwise Stated)
1. Card – Crumb Cake, Whisper White and Rich Razzleberry
2. Papers – None
3. Stamps – Very Vintage Jumbo Wheel and occasional Quotes (L3 Hostess Set)
4. Embellishments – Brights Brads
5. Dies – None
6. Embossing Folders – None
7. Punches – None
8. Tools – Piercing Tool and Aqua Painter
9. Mediums – Rich Razzleberry Classic Stampin PAd

1. Card – Crumb Cake, Whisper White and Vellum
2. Papers – Subtles DSP
3. Stamps – Basic Phrases and Four Frames Four

I must admit that I made this card quite a while ago and haven’t actually played with my Wheels for some time now.  I think that perhaps this weekend I’ll get them out and see what I can come up with.  I stamped the individual letters onto card and then punched them out using the 3/4″ Circle punch and then cut off the ends to get the letters closer together.  I always use the Crystal Effects after I have added the letters/images/chop board etc to the base card.  You just need to be careful at the edges if they aren’t raised like these ones are. 

Supplies Used: (All Stampin’ Up! Unless Otherwise Stated)
1. Card – Perfect Plum and Pear Pizzazz
2. Papers – Subtles DSP
3. Stamps – Friendly Words Wheel and Just Perfect Alphabet
4. Embellishments – Basic Pearls
5. Dies – None
6. Embossing Folders – None
7. Punches – Scallop Border, 3/4″ Circle and Large Corner (Not SU)
8. Tools – None
9. Mediums – VersaMark Pad, Basic Black Classic Stampin Pad, Clear Stampin’ Emboss Powder and Crystal Effects

I just love these sentiments!  I made Christmas Card with much the same layout as this one and it had the hearts too.  They have been “Crystal Effected”.  I’ve used the Nursery Suite Speciality papers here but there is nothing babyish about this card.

Supplies Used: (All Stampin’ Up! Unless Otherwise Stated)
1. Card – Early Espresso, Baja Breeze and Whisper White
2. Papers – Nursery Suite Speciality
3. Stamps – Heard from the Heart
4. Embellishments – None
5. Dies – None
6. Embossing Folders – None
7. Punches – Heart Small and Corner
8. Tools – None
9. Mediums – Early Espresso Classic Stampin Pad and Crystal Effects

Card Labels

Posted by Jeannette on 2 May 2011

 I did this when I first started with Stampin’ Up! but with the colour renovation I just never got round to updating it all, till now.  I store my card stock in a Brown Archive box (landscape)  When I first started crafting I bought some card stock that I thought was a bargain, well I found out why once I got home with it.  But true to Crafters style I just couldn’t throw it away, I knew it would come in handy one day, and it did!  I use it for the dividers.  For my 12×12 card I use the piece of card that is packaged with the Designer Series Papers.  I used the Round Tab Punch to punch them out and if you space them correctly (slight overlap of the base) then you fit 10 of them perfectly along the landscape edge of the card divider.

 If you would like the labels, just drop me an e-mail jeannette.eames@me.com.
