Daisy Delight And The Daisy Punch Bundle - A No Brainer!

by Joanne James7. June 2017 07:00

Today I've a couple more daisy cards for you - both the same design, just using alternative colourways. Here's the first one, featuring Pool Party, Calypso Coral, Emerald Envy and Gold:

 

Here's the second card I created using exactly the same stamps and layout, simply changing the colour palette - this time Peekaboo Peach, Wisteria Wonder, Old Olive and Silver:

 

 Here's the low-down on today's card:

Take A Strip Of Paper - Believe it or not, today's cards started out as a few designer series paper offcuts; literally leftovers from another project! I had been busy creating a bunch of customer thank you cards with full size cardfronts featuring the gorgeous patterns in the Delightful Daisies designer series paper packs to go out with this month's customer orders, and had a whole bunch of narrow strips leftover. I could have thrown them away - instead I used them to create the horizontal lines for my punched flower to rest on and to inspire the colour combinations for the rest of my card. Waste not, want not and all that!

Buy The Bundle - As my blog post title suggests, you could but the Daisy Punch alone - why would you though when you can get the Daisy Delight stamp set with it as a bundle with 10% off into the bargain? For me the bundle really is a no brainer: it has this lovely daisy stamp that I've used here to add detail and colour to your daisy petals and centres and it also comes with a number of other pretty florals that can be coloured or used for a tone-on-tone look as I have here to create my background. There's a couple of thank you sentiment combinations too. So many more creative possibilities and a great price point at £27.75. 

Add A Gem - In addition to some ribbon, I've also added one of the new faceted gems to the centre of each of my daisies - I love the sparkle these add to a card!

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

Two Ways To Create Clean and Simple Cards Using Stampin' Up's Daisy Punch

by Joanne James6. June 2017 20:00

I've been busy preparing samples for my forthcoming open house using one of my favourite suites from the new catalogue: the Delightful Daisies Suite. Today I'm sharing two clean and simple cards featuring the new Daisy Punch and just two of the ways it can be used.

My first card was inspired by one made recently by Mary Fish - you can see her original card here - a simple trio of punched daisies with banner sentiment greeting from the Happy Birthday Gorgeous stamp set:

 

I chose to use Night of Navy for my accent colour - I love how the simple yellow middles of the daisies - punched with a 1/2" circle punch - really pop with this crisp, fresh colour combination. My second card uses the daisy punch to make a feature of the negative space:

 

Here the daisies still take centre stage, however this time instead of punching out the flowers and attaching them to the cardfront, I punched the flowers out of my topmost navy card layer to 'reveal' the white daisies in the negative space below, then I added my yellow flower centres to each negative flower. I am a big fan of using negative space to make your punches and framelits work harder for you and I love the contrast that using the negative space provides with this classic colour combination. 

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

Last Orders And A Fairy Celebration!

by Joanne James31. May 2017 07:00

Public service announcements first today - bear with me, there will be a creative post below for those that are here for the pretty stuff!

Counting down now - only 1 day to go until the new 2017-18 Annual Stampin' Up! catalogue launches!

 

I have sent out copies to everyone on my catalogue mailing list who has purchased from me in the last 6 months - if you're not on this list but would like to receive one, then do give me a call on 07773 421446 or drop me an email and I will pop one in the post to you today.

This also means the following: 

Today is the last day that you can order from the 2016-17 Stampin' Up! catalogue - this includes any of the 'Bundle and Save 10%' bundles. Even though many of the products they contain are being carried over to the new annual catalogue, they will not be available as a discounted bundle.

Spring/Summer 2017

Today is the last day that you can order from the 2017 Spring-Summer Seasonal Stampin' Up! catalogue - a number of the products in this brochure are being carried over to the new annual catalogue, however we willbe saying goodbye to many items. There are still a number of stamp sets and accessories available at a discount on the Retiring List here - today is your last chance to grab a bargain!  they will not be available as a discounted bundle.

Eastern Palace Suite Bundles

Today is also the final day to purchase either of the special Eastern Palace Suite bundles. You can read more about these fabulous bundles in my blog post here which also contains the link to the store should you wish to purchase either bundle. Whilst all of the items contained in each bundle will be available to purchase individually once the new annual catalogue launches, the bundles along with the free gifts won't. So if you have been swept up in the Eastern Palace craze, get yours today!

This code will close this afternoon at 2pm, so be sure to have placed your orders online before this to benefit. If you are local to me and wish to save on postage, please ensure you have your order to me by midday to be included on this order.

That's the announcements and reminders done - now for the pretty! Today I'm sharing a card for this week's challenge over at Less Is More:

I haven't managed to play along with the lovely ladies over at LIM for a little while but having been perusing my depleted collection of stamp sets I came across another uninked one that I thought would be perfect for this week's challenge - take a look:

 

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

Fluttering Fairies - As with yesterday's card, I'm rediscovering sets that have been sitting unused on my shelf as we transition from one catalogue to another. The 'Fairy Celebration' stamp set is new to me - I love the little whimsical fairies that are perfect for colouring and as someone who often creates with and for children, I knew this set would have lots of appeal. I also love how for the fairy that I featured on my card today you can punch out the wings with the retiring Bitty Butterfly punch for a 3D effect. 

Shimmer, Shimmer - When I thought about the word 'shimmer', I immediately thought Shimmery White cardstock, clear Wink of Stella and Dazzling Diamonds glitter - and fairy wings of course! I used all of the above products on my fairy card, heat embossing the stardust trail and glittery fairy wings and adding additional Wink of Stella to the vellum wings to add further iridescence. Along with the Shimmery White card base, I must confess this is one of those cards where it is difficult to capture how very pretty and shimmery this card is in real life - you will just have to take my word for it!

No Line Watercolouring - I stamped the fairy in Powder Pink and watercoloured her using the no-line watercolouring technique as I wanted her to be rather undefined and allow the shimmer to take centre stage. 

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

We are off for a picnic in the park today with friends; the weather hasn't been as warm this last few days, but if it stays dry I'm sure plenty of fun will be had by all. Enjoy your day and I'll be back tomorrow with the official launch of the new 2017-18 Stampin' up! Annual Catalogue - how exciting! Until then, happy stampin'!

Layering Love New Baby Card

by Joanne James30. May 2017 19:00

Counting down now - only 2 days to go until the new 2017-18 Annual Stampin' Up! catalogue launches!

 

I have sent out copies to everyone on my catalogue mailing list who has purchased from me in the last 6 months - if you're not on this list but would like to receive one, then do give me a call on 07773 421446 or drop me an email and I will pop one in the post to you.

We are on the home straight for purchases from the current annual and spring-summer catalogue; there will be a full reminder of everything that is closing tomorrow, however meanwhile if you still have an order to place this month, don't forget to use the current online hostess code DXFJQZPN to receive a little thank you from me. This code will close tomorrow afternoon at 2pm, so be sure to have placed your orders online before this to benefit. If you are local to me and wish to save on postage, please ensure you have your order to me by midday tomorrow to be included on this order.

Today I'm sharing a card for this week's challenge over at CAS(E) This Sketch:

This sketch was perfect for an idea I've had in my head for a while using a stamp set from the annual catalogue - take a look:

 

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

Layering Love - A new catalogue often means much less current stock in the stamp room, as old makes way for new and new consists of some select pre-order items. This has its advantages though - it encourages a look through those stamp sets that are carrying over from one annual catalogue to the next with fresh eyes - and in some instances, as with today's card, results in a set that has been languishing to be inked up for the first time (yay!) I bought the set some time ago because I love the big, bold feature sentiments it contains. The one I've used on today's card was the clincher though - not only is this a sweet sentiment for a new baby card, but is perfect for memory keeping and scrapbook pages or even a framed piece of wall art. I just had to have it - shame it's taken me so long to ink it up! The sentiment stamps are also designed to fit perfectly inside the various layering shapes framelits - bonus!

Sneak Peeks Times Two - I've mixed the old with the new on my card today too: I used the heart from a new set called 'Wood Words' to create a tone-on-tone border along the bottom part of my card using my trusty stamp-a-ma-jig to get my hearts neatly lined up and for my embellishment I added a sweet bunny that I fussy cut from the new Pick-A-Pattern Designer Series Paper. Full of eclectic hand-drawn images and quirky animals - I love this paper!

A Modern Colour Combo - I was tempted to go pink all the way with my card today, but decided to introduce black to tie in with my fussy-cut outlined bunny and I think it makes for a fresh and modern colour combination and tempers the brightness of Flirty Flamingo - feel free to save it if you would like to try it out on your projects:

 

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

I'm a little later than anticipated posting today; the joys of having the James Juniors home for the half-term holiday! We spent the day running errands, posting and delivering catalogues and purchasing some things ready for one of them to embark on a Geography field trip next week. I'll be back tomorrow with another project, hopefully posted before our day begins. Until then, happy stampin'!

Best Dad Ever Masculine Card And A Frog Story

by Joanne James29. May 2017 08:00

Happy Bank Holiday Monday to all my UK readers today and to all those in the USA - Happy Memorial Day. I hope you've all been enjoying the long weekend and perhaps have even been able to squeeze in a little extra crafting time too. Today I'm sharing a couple of cards - the first one using this week's sketch over at Freshly Made Sketches:

I still need a couple of Father's Day cards so decided to use up a few more retiring products and 'go masculine' - perfect for the challenge over at SUO Challenges too. Here's my card:

 

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

Best Dad Ever - This sentiment is from the 'Everyday Tags' stamp set, whilst designed to co-ordinate with the Cheerful Tags Framelits Dies, also makes a great focal sentiment for my card. 

Layered Squares - I can't seem to put down my Layering Squares lately! Here I adapted them slightly to create a rectangle that would frame my sentiment better and used a piece of Urban Underground Specialty Designer Series Paper for my background. 

Nailed It - I paper-pieced three tools from the 'Nailed It' set for my embellishments and cut them out by hand as I didn't want a border around the edge. I also used the 'Happy Father's Day' stamp inside 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. Is your Dad a tools man into DIY or would you choose an alternative theme for your card? Do let me know in the comments below - I would love to hear your thoughts.

My second card today is a super quick clean and simple card that uses this week's sketch over at CAS Colours and Sketches and just so happens to use this week's palette over at the Color Throwdown:

    

Here's my card:

 

No real explanation required here - some retired washi tape, a sentiment from 'Greatest Greetings' and that sweet frog from the retiring 'Love You Lots' hostess set - but there is a funny story that goes with it: Rebecca was playing a game with her friends at school this week where they were Googling the song that was number one in the charts the day that they were born. I must confess I had no idea what was at the top of the hit parade when Rebecca was born, however I was mildly amused when she informed me it was 'Crazy Frog' by Axel F (yes, that irritating tune that was little more than a mobile phone ringtone!) and that everyone else was really jealous as theirs was quite boring by comparison! I must be getting old as I don't even consider 'Crazy Frog' music!!! Anyway, after this fun revelation I had the urge to make her a frog card; I sometimes make little notes to go into the James Juniors pencil cases as a little surprise and this is where this notelet is headed!

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

The Very Hungry Caterpillar Birthday Card

by Joanne James26. May 2017 06:00

Happy Friday everyone! Today I'm sharing a fun card that I cased from one I saw on Pinterest by Belinda Neil a while ago but haven't got around to sharing - take a look:

 

You can see Belinda's original card here. I thought this was such a fun card, especially for those of you out there with children who have read Eric Carle's classic 'The Very Hungry Caterpillar' story book - probably, like me, many, many times!

This fun card is made using nothing more than inks, stamps and paper - specifically, the Balloon Builder stamp set. I made you a super simple, speedy video to show you how I created this card from start to finish:

 

Isn't that easy? Who would have thought that the Balloon Builder stamp set could be used to create something so fun? This is another one of those stamp sets that is retiring next week, so if you want to recreate this card, you'll need to click on the link below and hop over to the online store and put it into your basket!

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

Enjoy your day; I'm spending mine at Rebecca's Sports Day watching javelin-throwing and the 200m sprint amongst other things and hopefully enjoying a picnic lunch and the glorious weather we have been blessed with here in the UK this week. I'll be back tomorrow with another project. Until then, happy stampin'!

So In Love Concertina Wedding Card

by Joanne James25. May 2017 06:00

Today I'm sharing a card from this month's technique class which featured the So In Love bundle and the beautiful Falling In Love designer series paper - take a look:

 

 Here's the low-down on today's card:

So Detailed Thinlits - The main feature on the front of these cards is the pair of diecut panels cut using the Big Shot and the largest of the So Detailed Dies. They really are so beautiful! I backed them with some of the Falling In Love designer series paper - these papers have some lovely subtle images, some of them photographic, that make a perfect background for these detailed diecuts. Unfortunately both of these items are now sold out here in the UK - I love this card though and just had to share it so hopefully for those of you who already have these items this will still serve as useful inspiration.

So In Love - I used the So In Love stamp set to stamp my greeting on my label wrap and to decorate the inside of my card. This card is larger than usual at 6" square and opens in a concertina style - this really shows the diecuts off to full advantage. 

A New Favourite - Yes, it's here again - I used the Pretty Label Punch for my sentiment panel on the front of my card, backed with a pinched circle - can you tell how much I LOVE this new punch?!

This card is subtle in colour, using only Very Vanilla and Sahara Sand - perfect for a wedding that doesn't have a strong colour scheme. It would work well and could be adapted as an invitation too, so lots of creative possibilities and it really is the Big Shot that does all the work on this one (a die brush is essential to poke all those little pieces out cleanly!)

Perfectly Wrapped Gift Packaging Made Easy

by Joanne James24. May 2017 06:00

Today I'm sharing a reminder of some of the kits that will be retiring from the current annual catalogue. You can read my previous posts about the Watercolour Wishes and Oh Happy Day all inclusive card kits here and here. The catalogue also includes some fun project kits too, including the Perfectly Wrapped product kit.

This kit contains everything you need to create 8 bags (4 each of 2 different designs) and 8 boxes (4 each of 2 different designs). Here's a picture of everything the kit contains:

 Perfectly Wrapped Project Kit

This little lot makes a whole ton of cute boxes and bags that are perfect for gifting treats:

Perfectly Wrapped Project Kit

You can use it with the co-ordinating Perfectly Wrapped stamp set or find your own creative uses for it - you choose! 

In addition to the photo of one of the bags above, here's one of the boxes that I made up:

These would be great for party favours and are also proving popular with my daughter's almost teenage friends due to the trendy packaging and are a great size for jewellery, makeup or a good supply of chocolates!

The nice people at Stampin' Up! have also produced a video that show how this kit comes together:

Label Me Pretty Homemade Jam #GDP087

by Joanne James20. May 2017 11:00

Happy Saturday everyone! A mix of old and new today and not a card but some cute packaging which is perfect for this week's Global Design Project challenge:

Many of my readers know that the James family are keen vegetable growers and we have a small kitchen garden which keeps us supplied with fresh vegetables through the summer months. We also have a collection of fruit trees and last year for the first time I started making my own jam. one of my James Juniors is an absolute jam addict - given the choice, Ben would live on jam on toast  - so much so, that his big sister once declared we should have called him 'Jam-in-Ben' rather than 'Ben-jam-in', something that sticks to this day!

Anyway, I digress - making my own jam is a great way to make the most of our fruit and meet demand. I also love to give it away as a gift occasionally too and that's where today's project comes in; whilst Ben is all about the jam itself, if I'm gifting it I like to pretty up the packaging somewhat and there is a stamp set in the new catalogue that is perfect for me  - take a look:

 

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

Label Me Pretty - The new 'Label Me Pretty' stamp set is just perfect for me and anyone else how likes to preserve or cook and pretty-up their gifts for giving; the label I've used today works for any kind of produce. The set includes lots of other stamps too, that would work for other types of gift giving or on cards too - look out for more featuring those another day. Wondering how I got it so beautifully cut out too? That would be the co-ordinating Pretty Label Punch  - love this! I will have my jams labelled in no-time!! 

Fruit Stand - I paired my label with a band of strawberry-patterned Fruit Stand paper; a great pack with images of apples, pears lemons and peaches too. This is retiring 31 May though so if you want to add this to your jam jars you need to stock up soon!

Add A Spoon - Lastly, I wanted to add a little something to my jar and added a little wooden spoon, stamped with a strawberry from the 'Cool treats' stamp set. This is a simple way to add a 'wow' to a plain spoon - and in the words of Ben, a great way to enable someone to tuck in to their jam as soon as they receive it! I simply tied it to my jar using some of the retiring Cucumber Crush 5/8" mini-striped ribbon - here's a close up of my spoon detail: 

 

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

Given the recent addition of four chickens to the James Household, my next challenge is to use some of our eggs to create homemade lemon curd, one of Rebecca's favourite treats. Watch this space for some lemon-inspired packaging at some point later in the year! Oh and if Stampin' Up! could provide some raspberry-patterned paper it would also be much appreciated!!

I'll be back tomorrow with another project for this week's new challenge over at The Paper Players. We have a busy day today - Rebecca has a big swimming meet and is racing all day (at the time of writing, she has already achieved two 100m personal bests for her breaststroke and individual medley, so that is great news) and Ben has a football-themed birthday party to attend followed by his swimming lesson. Enjoy your day and until tomorrow, happy stampin'!
