Petals And Paisleys 3D Home Decor Wall Art - FREE PDF Tutorlal

by Joanne James26. April 2017 20:13

Today I'm sharing a project that I made in an all-day class last November, but didn't share at the time on my blog. Do you remember the 3D home decor piece featuring the Paisleys and Posies stamp set and co-ordinating Paisleys Framelits that featured on page 46 of the Autumn-Winter seasonal catalogue? Here's a reminder:

 

I thought this was a lovely and unusual piece of wall art, so decided to use it as the basis for an all-day class where the ladies attending would each make their own version of this project and also stamp a stack of cards using the remaining papers in the Petals & Paisleys Specialty Designer Series Paper pack, which they each received in their kits.

Here's my finished framed piece - I originally framed it in white, but have since had it professionally framed in a beautiful copper-coloured wood frame similar to the one in the catalogue, which has much greater impact:

 

I like this piece so much it is now hanging on the wall in my dining room. The photo above really doesn't do it justice - just look at the lovely shine on the foil and embossed copper against the navy: 

 

So very pretty! The finished piece measures 12" x 12" unmounted and unframed. The Petals and Posies stamp set and co-ordinating Paisleys Framelits were carried over and are still available, however the paper was discontinued. Good news though: I decided to share this project today because those lovely Petals and Paisleys Specialty Designer Series Papers are now available again on the Clearance Rack for only £4.70 per pack - bargain!

I ALSO HAVE A SPECIAL OFFER FOR YOU - A FREE PDF TUTORIAL!

For everyone who purchases the Petals and Paisleys Specialty Designer Series Papers on the Clearance Rack along with the Petals and Posies stamp set and co-ordinating Paisleys Framelits from me through my online store before the end of this month (Sunday 30th April) using the current hostess code Y2MKPTP6, I will send you a copy of my PDF tutorial for the above home decor wall art project, containing full written and photo step-by-step instructions FOR FREE, so that you can recreate it too! Instructions will be emailed separately following purchase - please ensure you include your email address and check the box that allows you to be contacted by me as your demonstrator following your purchase to send them on to you.

Paisleys Framelits Thankful Card

by Joanne James10. November 2016 08:05

Today it's time for a new challenge over at Create With Connie and Mary and this week we have a colour combination for you:

 

I was immediately drawn to the Petals and Paisleys Specialty Designer Series Paper as all of these colours can be found in this pack. I ended up only using a small piece of it though - here's my card:

 

Here's the low-down on today's card:

Copper Specialty Banner - I chose to use a piece of my favourite paper, the beautifully navy with copper-embossed pattern for the banner accent on my card. So pretty!

All About Copper - There are so many copper elements to my card: the foil die cuts and mat, the designer series paper and the copper-embossed sentiment - they all go together beautifully and I love them!

A Paper-Pieced Trio -  I die cut my shapes - not sure whether they are supposed to be leaves, feathers or fans...answers on a postcard! - and having die cut two in Mint Macaron and another in Night of Navy, I carefully paper-pieced the outer elements and in-filled the pattern. This is fiddly with such small pieces, but worth the effort I think. I then finished each shape with an enamel dot.

Here is the visual summary of the key products used on today's project for you to pin for easy reference:

 

I love the simple design of today's card, with the small details adding real interest.

Enjoy your day and I'll be back tomorrow with another project. Until then, happy stampin'!

Petals and Paisleys Thankful Card

by Joanne James6. November 2016 09:00

It's Sunday and time for a new challenge over at The Paper Players! It's the turn of the lovely Laurie to host this week and she has a timely theme challenge for you to work with:

 

 Ultra clean and layered today (no surprise there then!) - I chose to showcase a wonderful sentiment and some fabulous paper on my card today - here it is:

 

Here's the low-down on today's card:

Petals and Paisleys - I chose to use one of the 'busy' papers from the Petals and Paisleys Specialty Designer Series Paper on my card today - a bold colour scheme with lots going on, so definitely a paper that needs to be allowed to shine on its own. 

I Am Blessed - Some lovely paisley stamps in the Paisleys and Posies stamp set, however it also contains great sentiments and this one is perfect to make a statement of thankfulness. I cropped mine with the Layered Ovals Framelits and backed with a scalloped oval, and a simple folded ribbon detail to tie the whole thing together.

A Rich Autumnal Colour Combination - There are so many wonderful colours in these papers - I focused in on Delightful Dijon, Night of Navy and the addition of Rich Razzleberry to emphasise the rich colours of the season. Feel free to save this combination if it appeals to you too:

Grateful For Vintage Leaves

by Joanne James16. October 2016 10:00

It's Sunday and time for a new challenge over at The Paper Players! It's the turn of the lovely Nance to host this week and she has a great clean and simple challenge for you to work with:

       

What a great challenge for Autumn! I just had to dig out my old favourite Vintage Leaves for this one and my Leaflets Framelits along with the colours over at Color Throwdown for my card today; they are somewhat unorthodox for Fall yet they enabled me to try a fun inlaid die masking technique that I've been wanting to experiment with to add interest to my clean and simple card today. I used this week's sketch layout over at CAS Colours and Sketches - here's my card:

 

Here's the low-down on today's card:

A Vintage Leaf - Vintage Leaves is a favourite stamp set of mine at this time of year and is perfect for Fall cards. I used a single leaf, stamped in Bermuda Bay onto Pool Party cardstock, as the anchor for my sentiment banner. 

Inlaid Die Masking - The vertical strip on my card uses a fun technique called inlaid die masking. I made a stencil mask by cutting out a number of random leaf shapes using the Leaflet Framelit that corresponds with the leaf stamp I used, then sponged a combination of Pool Party, Smoky Slate and Pear Pizzazz inks through the mask, then over-stamping these sponged areas with the detailed leaf stamp in Bermuda Bay, Basic Grey and Old Olive respectively. This adds a soft hue of colour to each leaf which I really like. 

G is for Grateful - My sentiment from the Paisleys and Posies stamp set is perfect for the season and the challenge over at Just Add Ink this week where the theme is to 'Just Add G'. This is the time of Harvest Festivals here in the UK, with Thanksgiving for our American friends around the corner and celebrated by Canadians recently and as such is a time of year when we are reminded to be grateful. I enjoyed a school assembly on this very theme last Friday, where pupils expressed thanks for everything from the food they eat, to the opportunities given to them by their parents and their favourite footballer, amongst other things! We all have much to be grateful for and it is all too easy to take for granted those around us who enrich our lives and make the world a better place for the greater good.

I look forward to seeing what you create with this week's clean and simple theme. We are off for our usual Sunday morning of sport, followed by lunch with friends and an afternoon of crafting of a different kind - Rebecca has been working on some dolls clothes so some supervision of the sewing machine is in order! 

Enjoy the rest of your weekend as it will be over all too quickly; I'll be back tomorrow with another project; until then, happy stampin'!

Petals and Paisleys 'Blessed' Card

by Joanne James9. September 2016 21:52

Hurrah it's Friday - that was a week! Both James Juniors started at their new schools, so we are all change! New routines to get used to and we're all feeling tired and glad that we have the weekend to recharge and help us adjust to our new 'norm'. I have not had much crafting time this week, but ever since I saw this week's sketch over at Retrosketches I wanted to make a card using it and fortunately managed to squeeze in a crafty few minutes this evening to put my idea onto paper. Here's the sketch:

I'm taking a little break from Christmas cards and I knew this layout would be perfect with the new Petals and Paisleys set, in particular the designer series paper. Here's my card:

 

Here's the low-down on today's card:

Petals and Paisleys - The paper is without question the star of this card. The Petals and Paisleys Specialty DSP has some amazing colours and patterns that work well for fall but are not overly autumnal. The paper I use on my card today is one of the busiest in the pack and was a great choice for this simple layout, which really allows that vibrant, colourful pattern to shine.

Blessed Indeed - I chose to use the block letter sentiment from the Paisleys and Posies stamp set, inking it in Rich Razzleberry and Night of Navy, two of the accent colours in the DSP and stamping it onto my panel of Very Vanilla. I added a couple of the circle stamps from the same set, along with an enamel shape and a retired decorated rhinestone to frame the words.

Ribbon and Twine - I added three loops of Night of Navy twine, knotted at the side as per the sketch, with a piece of the Rich Razzleberry ribbon from the new trio that accompanies this product suite beneath it to finish my card.

Here is the visual summary of the key products used on today's project for you to pin for easy reference:

 

You can see all of my 'How To' summaries on my 'How To - Tips and Techniques' Pinterest board in case you've missed any. 

I just love this card! I am in the process of designing a set of stamp-a-stack cards using this product suite for an all day workshop I have planned for November and this card will definitely make the cut! 

That's all from me today. I'll be back tomorrow with another project but for now an early night is in order. Until then, happy stampin'!
