Kylie Bertucci's International Blog Highlights Top Ten Winners' Blog Hop

Hello Everyone

I was recently fortunate enough to to win Kylie Bertucci's November 2020 International Blog Highlights Blog Hop and I'm in the top 10 which I'm really excited about and here is the project that I made for her Top 10 Winners Blog Hop

I have two card bases for this card.  The first card base measures 11¾" x 5⅞" and is scored down the long side at 5⅞".  I've then taken a piece of Bermuda Bay card stock and trimmed that to 5¾" x 5¾"      and run that through my die cutting machine in the Bricks & Mortar 3D embossing folder just to give a bit of texture onto the front of a card.

Using a scallop circle die,  I cut I die cut a window at the front of my card 

I created a layered sentiment by taking three pieces of card measuring as follows:

Whisper White:  3⅞" x 1" and 3⅝" x ⅞"
Bermuda Bay:  3¾" x ¾"
I put each end of these pieces through the Triple Banner Punch and stamped a 'Thank You' sentiment on the smallest piece

I made a second card base in Whisper White card measuring 8" x 5" and scored on the long side at 4".  This card base (in portrait) opens on the left hand side of the card.  I stamped five flowers from the Gorgeous Posies stamp set in Pacific Point, Melon Mambo, Gorgeous Grape, Mango Melody and Bermuda Bay and fussy cut each of these.  I arranged these on my smaller cardbase by gluing down four of the flowers with liquid glue and the Bermuda Bay flower is stuck down using mini stampin' dimensionals to give it a bit of height.  I added another sentiment from the Tasteful Touches stamp set.

On the inside of the main card base, I layered the right hand side of the inside with a piece of DSP from the Brights DSP assorted papers in Bermuda Bay and then stuck my second card on top of that.

When the card is closed, the flowers appear through the window.  I finished the card off with a couple of rhinestones

The inside of the second car base is completely blank for a special message

Share It On A Sunday - Masculine Gift Box

For this week's Share It On a Sunday, the theme is Masculine Gift Box and Karen, Victoria and myself have been busy putting together gift boxes for the men in our lives.  Here's one of the boxes I made and I realised when my husband popped in to see what I was up to, that his shirt pretty much matched the box

I've created a YouTube video showing you how to put the box together.  You'll need a piece of cardstock measuring 11" x 6½" and 5 pieces of DSP measuring as follows:

3½" x 3⅜", 2 pieces measuring 3½" x 1¼" and 2 pieces measuring 3¼" x 1¼"

I've made another box

And here's the two together

Inspire Ink Blog Hop - Christmas Baubles

 Today I'm taking part in the InspireInk blog hop and today we have a Christmas theme.  I've used the Brightly Gleaming DSP pack.  Utterly gorgeous paper that requires very little else added to it.  Here's my card

The card base is in Very Vanilla and measures 4⅛" x 11¾" and is folded on the long side in half. My first layer of DSP measures 4" x 5¾" and the second layer of DSP measures 5¼" x 3½"

I used the Rectangle Postage punch for the sentiment and used the punch to create a background to the shape and stuck these four pieces to the back of my label.  The sentiment was stamped in Night of Navy ink and stuck to the card with mini stampin' dimensionals

I'm really pleased with how this card turned out bearing in mind I've had no time to craft this week.  This is the beauty of gorgeous papers - you really don't need to do too much to them.

I'm leaving a list of all the products I've used and clicking on these takes you straight to my shop.  In the meantime, please come and visit all of the other crafters in the blog hop and see what beautiful projects they've been making.

Arrange a Wreath Simple Card with Die Cutting or Fussy Cutting

 I'm trying to do more crafting and I've picked up the Arrange a Wreath stamp set tonight.  This is the card I came up with:

I started off with a card base in Garden Green measuring 11¾" x 4⅛" and folded this in half

My white card layer is 5⅝" x 3⅞" and I stamped the Wreath stamp in Garden Green ink

I stamped the flowers from the stamp set in Real Red and the leaves in Cajun Craze.  If you don't have the coordinating dies, you can fussy cut these shapes really easily

I stuck these on the wreath with liquid glue before finally adding the Best Wishes sentiment in Garden Green
