Banners for You

This was another set that I just had to have when the Annual Catalogue first came out. I can't believe that it has taken me this long to crack it open. I guess that happens when there are so many wonderful new goodies to use.

The bonus with this stamp set is that it comes as a bundle. So there is a 10% saving straight up. Stampin' Up! have teemed up the Banners For You stamp set with the Bunch of  Banners Framelits and  offered them at a discount. 

I am loving all the bundles, there is something for everyone. And everyone likes a saving, right !

This is the first card I made with this bundle.

This was a quick and easy card to make. I just stamped the flowers and leaves in the centre of the card, then stamped the banner, cut it out and adhered it to the card. The longest part of making the card was deciding on the colours to use.

If you haven't seen the stamp set, here it is, with the bundle below it.

Does that card look familiar? Yep, I cased it to make mine. Why reinvent the wheel, right. I just love that samples are provided in the catalogue.

Masking

Today I wanted to share with you a couple of cards I made recently using the masking technique.

Blooms & Wishes - Masking Technique - Narelle Fasulo - Simply Stamping with Narelle - available here - http://www3.stampinup.com/ECWeb/ProductDetails.aspx?productID=141784&dbwsdemoid=4008228


Here is a quick overview of how I used masking on these cards.

First of all I got a scrap piece of paper. Not a piece of card stock as that is too think, instead I used a scrap piece from old printed documents. I cut it to the same size as the front of the card. Then I cut a circle out of it. I made sure the circle was where I wanted my flowers to be on the first card. This piece of scrap with the hole in it is now my mask for the first card. I kept the cut out circle and used it as a mask for the second card.

I then used washi tape to hold my card front and the mask in place. I then stamped the flowers and leaves making sure that I got good coverage in the hole.

You truly don't get the whole effect until the mask is removed.
To complete the card, I just added a sentiment over the top and tied some ribbon around the card front, then mounted it onto a coordinating piece of coloured card stock.

I used the circle that I cut out from the scrap paper as a mask on the second card. The circle was held onto the card front using a loop of washi tape under the middle of the circle. Then I stamped all over the card front. I then removed the mask, added a sentiment and a few leaves in the blank space, then tied some ribbon before mounting onto coordinating card stock.

Masking is such a fun technique and gives you some amazing results. There are many ways to use a mask, and this is just one of them I have shown you today.

Why not try this technique soon.

Thanks for popping by.
Have a great day.

Cheers,
Narelle

Freshly Brewed Projects - Pockets

Welcome to another Freshly Brewed Projects from the Latte Girls. This week it is all about pockets. Can be anything pockets - pockets on a card, a pocket card or a card that looks like a pocket.

I have made a pocket card for you today. 

Floral Boutique Suite - Stampin' Up! - Narelle Fasulo - Simply Stamping with Narelle - available here - http://www3.stampinup.com/ECWeb/ItemList.aspx?categoryid=31007&dbwsdemoid=4008228

I decided to do a wedding pocket card, mainly because I was dying to use some of the Floral Boutique Suite that I just had to have straight away but hadn't used yet. It is simply stunning and reminds me of old english china.

Floral Boutique Suite - Stampin' Up! - Narelle Fasulo - Simply Stamping with Narelle - available here - http://www3.stampinup.com/ECWeb/ItemList.aspx?categoryid=31007&dbwsdemoid=4008228

So here are some more images of my pocket card. The card just slides out the top by gently pulling on the loop of ribbon. The inside of the card has been decorated as well. And the last picture shows you how I hid the loop of ribbon on the back of the card.

My daughter recently had her Confirmation, and being the organised mum that I am, I didn't get around to making her a card. This week I thought I would rectify that.

The stamp set I used is called All God's Grace. It is perfect for all your babies and children's special occasions.

I took the design from the Annual Catalogue. Stampin' Up! had made a gorgeous gift bag with the tags. I decided to case it and turn it into a card.  This is the project in the catalogue that I cased.
