Petal Pizzazz Flower Pot Pocket Card......

Wow! That was a mouthful of a Title..... Hee! I saw this card design last week but didn't have time to play, but I had stamped so many flowers for yesterday, I decided that I would cut a few more out. The colours and stamp set are the same as yesterdays post - Petal Pizzazz. You can find the Tutorial here.
You pull up the flower spray to reveal the sentiment. I added some Sizzilet Scribbles in the flowers which I brought from the Craft Bug.

I added some So Saffron brads for the centres and some Kraft Taffeta Ribbon around the top of the flower pot. The sentiment on the front is from Wow Flowers which was punched out using the Oval Punches.

My Mum is off to Florida on Friday for her Birthday. She is so excited that she is going to be swimming with the Dolphins, Bless her. Mum has been using lots of bits and bobs I have been giving her when I have been sorting out my Craft Room and her Creations are beautiful. So if you are reading this Mum - Hope you have a Fantastic Time - MISS YOU xxxxxx

Anyway Thanks for looking,

Stampin' UP! Appreciation Day..........Today.

Hello Everyone!

I have been so busy since last tuesday getting ready for My Appreciation Day Today. This was for my ladies who regularly come to my Stampin' Up! Classes every week. We made 3 Projects, 2 before Lunch and 1 after. After Lunch we had a quick game of Stampin UP Bingo!! Great Fun!

The above card is what we made after Lunch. I saw this sort of card on Dawns Stamping Thoughts, she also has a Video. Its called a Diorama Box.
The Stamp sets used were Petal Pizzazz and Happy Everything. The cardstock is Rose Red, So Saffron and White Whisper.
It folds flat to fit in a long envelope ready for posting.

Appreciation Day.......

The first Project was to make a spray of stamped flowers in a Vase with Rub ons. We started by cutting out the Flowers - My Ladies LOVE Cutting out!!! - They will miss this next week as there isn't any cutting out!!! Hee!

The Stamp set used is Petal Pizzazz and the colours used were Rose Red, Regal Rose, Pretty in Pink and Certainly Celery. The stems were brought from the Florist.

The Rub ons were from Hidden Garden Blossums in the main catalogue but in the Mini the Planter Box Rub Ons actually match this stamp set.
These are the flowers close up.
The next project was Stamping on Candles. We used the same Stamp set Petal Pizzazz. You need white tissue paper. After stamping the images on the tissue paper, cut out and lay over the candle. Wrap the candle in some grease proof paper and heat with a Heat Gun.

We gift wrapped it in some florist spotty wrapping and added a Oval All label which was punched out using the Oval Punches.

I made everyone a Goodie Bag to take home, inside was a Project to do at home, the Stamp Set Thank You Kindly and some Chocolate!!!!

I really appreciate the ladies that come regularly to my little old Stampin' Up! Classes and this is just a little way of showing them all how much I appreciate.

Hopefully I will get back to regular Blog Posts soon,

Pocket Silhouette Class No. 3 - Origami Box......

Morning Everyone! We had brilliant weather on Holiday, it was like a Summer Holiday.... Although I packed all Winter Clothes Doh! It was so easy taking Sid with us. He was so well behaved and we really enjoyed him being with us. Although after his experience at the Vets before we went away, he went completely flat at the French Vets and we had to pick him up to get him in the door. On the Examining Table he went flat again like a flat Frog - Bless him. His passport was stamped and all was OK when we went through Customs with Him.

When we got back home, I had to finish off the Payroll Year End! Yes Jo I did have a difference and it took all of Saturday and most of Sunday to find it. Thankfully I found it and its all finished for another Year! Unfortunately this meant I haven't been in my Craft Room for nearly 2 Weeks.

The Class Today is using the Pocket Silhouettes Stamp Set. The Box is an Origami Box with a Lid using the backing sheets that come with the Paper Packs. The papers are Haiku. As there are only 2 sheets of the same paper in the paper packs the boxes will be different. You can see the Original Box in as Earlier Post.

This is one of the cards to match the box.
This is the other one.
You can see inside the box and the ribbon wraps all around the box and finishes with a bow.

Must Run but hope to be back later,

Scene in a Garden - Perfect for Hubbie......

I made this for my Lovely Hubbie Roy for his Birthday tomorrow. We took him up to the Allotment last night to show him his birthday pressies. He loved the bench with the plaque on it and the flowers and painted potted shed. Even Sid like the bench as he christened it!!!

The stamp set is Scene in a Garden and the cardstock is Note Quite Navy, Old Olive and watercolouring paper. I used the watercolour crayons to colour the images in (which I really enjoyed using, much better on watercolour paper)and the new label nestabilities to cut it out.
Sincere Salutations is the sentiment and the Oval Punches to cut it out!

The aquapainter is brilliant to use with the crayons. I just went over the end of the crayons to pick up the colour.

Anyway must run,

Scandinavian Season - Christmas has come EARLY!

Wow! Can you believe its April today?????? I made these to show some samples using the Scandinavian Season Stamp Set for my Workshop on Monday. All the papers used are Ski Slope Designer Series paper.
This is a Gable Box. Its quite a size really, I'm not sure if the photo show this or not.
I used the Scallop and Large Oval Punches to make the actual handles.
This shows up the handles and I punched two tiny holes using the crop a dile and ran the ribbon through to close the box.

Scandinavian Season?

I just knew this tree in the Stamp Set would look nice Embossed in Silver. All the papers used are from the New Ski Slope Paper Series.
The snowflake was stamped 3 times on Not Quite Navy and embossed in Silver. It fits perfectly inside the Scallop Square Punch, Don't you think?
When I made this card I embossed a tree with clear powder on Chocolate Chip card. I finished it up but just kept looking at it.......

Not happy with something about the card - I whipped the tree off and added this one. I think it matches the wheel, that I ran down each side in Chocolate Chip, better.
There is a wheel to match, Called Scandinavian, I used it on the inside down each side in Chocolate Chip which matched the outside card.
Had to make a couple of Diddie Cards and I decorated the envelopes to match as well. They even have pretty inserts.

Well back at Tonight with the Blog Candy......
