It's a scrap challenge !!

Hi there,

Did you think that Stampin' Up! was just all about making cards? Well today I have to show you this.

In my other life I am on several Design Teams for scrapbook blogs and Facebook groups. I can not use Stampin' Up! products all the time, but when I can, I do. This is one challenge that I was able to do the whole layout with Stampin' Up! supplies. Love that.  If you want to check out the other work I do then please visit my other blog here.

So I have to tell you about a wonderful new challenge over at Off The Rails Scrapbooking. It's a sketch and colour challenge.  Here is my DT inspiration for it.

Feminine Cards with Secret Garden

Today I have three cards to share with you from my Mother's Day/Feminine card class.

I realise not everyone has a Mother still with us, so I deliberately did not use Mother's Day sentiments on all the cards. But there is no reason these cards can't be used for that occasion. I think the Feel Goods was an excellent substitution, they are such uplifting quotes.

Gift Card Holder & A Gift For You

Today I have to show you a cute little gift card holder that I made. Someone showed me a video on these and I just had to make one. And can I tell you, they are sooo easy to make.

Simply Stamping With Narelle

I probably didn't capture very well in the photos how it works. Basically the white insert is glued to the top so that when you open the card it lifts up and reveals the gift card.

Now as you can see in mine, I have a little envelope in there. Do you want to see close up how these work AND get to see what's in that envelope?  Then all you need to do is place an order with me in the next two weeks, so thats before April 20, and one of these little gift card holders WITH a gift envelope in it will be on its way to you.

If you need the link to shop online, go here.

Supplies used:-
Stamps: Happy Day
Paper: Coastal Cabana, Whisper White, Baked Brown Sugar
Inks: Crisp Cantaloupe, Baked Brown Sugar
Accessories: Envelope Punch Board, Simply Scored, Stretch Ruffle Trim in Crisp Cantaloupe, Jewels Basic Pearl Large, Jewels Basic Pearl

Thanks for dropping by today.

Have a great day,
Cheers,
Narelle

Scored Background Saves You Money

Hi everyone,

Today I wanted to share with you a little technique that will add a touch of elegance to your cards AND save you money.

I will show you the card and then explain what I mean.

Simply Stamping with Narelle

Simply Stamping with Narelle


You may have seen embossing folders around that will give you the diagonal cross design as I have here in my card, but did you know that you don't need to go out and buy one to achieve this look. If you already have the Simply Scored tool and the Diagonal Plate then you can make this background. And the bonus of using the scoring tool is that you can customise it to the size you want. You aren't stuck just using a 6" x 4" embossing folder, AND you can make the lines as far apart or as close as you like. Plus you can make just single lines and all sorts of other designs by using the one tool. Now thats what I call versatile. To achieve that with embossing folders you would need to have one folder for every design. Don't get me wrong, I love embossing folders, but I also like saving money.... :-)

Doesn't it look elegant. Would be perfect for wedding and other special ocassions cards.

If you want to see a video of how I did this, then pop over to my Tutorials Page for the video.


Supplies used:-
Stamps: Papillon Potpourri, Delightful Dozen
Paper: Whisper White, Crisp Cantaloupe, Sweet Sorbet Designer Series Paper
Inks: Crisp Cantaloupe
Accessories: Simply Scored, Simply Scored Diagonal Plate, Streth Ruffel Ribbon in Crisp Cantaloupe, Jewels Basic Pearls,Elegant Butterfly Punch, Bitty Butterfly Punch, Dimensionals


I hope you have enjoyed this card and are keen to give this technique a try.

Thanks for popping by today.
Cheers,
Narelle
