Stampin' Up! Thankful Crafty Cupcakes Team Blog Hop


Welcome to the Crafty Cupcakes Team Stampin' Up! Blog Hop for November 2017.
 Each month members of the Team take part in our Team Blog Hop to share with you our cards and projects made using the fabulous Stampin' Up! products. 

You are currently visiting Jenny Dowding in UK and below you will see the full list of everyone taking part. To move to the next blog just click the name after mine in the list.

This month our theme is "Thankful" and as we have just had Remembrance Day in UK, I felt that I had to made a Remembrance card.

Thank you for visiting my blog today.


Making the card

For the card I have used Wild Wasabi and Very Vanilla cardstock and water coloured with Real Red and Wild Wasabi ink and my Aquapainter. I used Birthday Blooms, Thankful Thoughts and the small T in the Back to Basics stamp set for the Crosses. I cut out the matts for the front using the Layering Squares Framelits dies and added an edge of the Vintage Crochet Trim.

I felt quite sad and emotional when making this card, as I feel that we should not just say "Thank You" on Remembrance Day, but should always have the sacrifice of those Servicemen of yesteryear and today in our hearts. 




Thank you once again for visiting my blog and taking part in our blog hop, there are so many amazing ideas and inspiration you don't want to miss so make sure you carry on hopping through the list.

Star of Light and Starlight Thinlit Card - Weekend Blog 4/11/17

Hi and Welcome to my Weekend Blog  

As of this week I will be showcasing Xmas cards using Stampin' Up! products. Today I am using the Star of Light Stamp set and matching Starlight Thinlit Dies, and the Merry Music Designer Series Paper 



I have made this card after seeingone made by Joanne Dibb on Pinterest.
I started with a sheet of Black cardstock, half an A4 sheet folded in half and burnished

I have stamped the sentiments on the front of the card using Versamark ink and Silver Embossing powder. Remember to used your embossing buddy as you do not want bits of silver embossing showing up on your back card



(Apologies for this "gray" black photo)

Once embossed, cut a piece of Merry Music DSP 10.5 x 8cm and then rough tear the edges to give you an angled piece. I then dragged the raw edges over the Versamark pad and embossed it with the silver embossing powder.
Attach these to your card front



Now the star.
Cut out the large plain star in Vellum and cut out the fancy star using Silver Foil paper. Attach the silver star to the vellum with the fine tip glue pen and then add to your card with dimensionsals. I have added a piece of silver thread behind the star with double sided tape.


Use a piece of white card for your insert and stamp it with a sentiment and a flourish of stars in black ink



I hope you like this card.

Happy Stampin'
