Make quick cards with this timeless bundle

 


Bundles are brilliant because you get a stamp set and tool to help you start your projects right away—and they come with 10% off! 

I’ve loved creating cards with the Beautiful Autumn Bundle and it’s been super easy and fast to make them with its Two-Step Stampin’ images and coordinating punches. 

I’ve used the bundle for some autumn-themed cards, and I plan to showcase the pinecone image in some Christmas cards too! I’ll also create some “anytime” cards for when I want to thank someone or simply say 'hello'. 

This bundle has a classic look with coordinating products that are a must have! The Beautiful Autumn Bundle is gorgeous with nature-inspired imagery and a coordinating punch pack. With its Two-Step Stampin’ images, you can choose the lined or filled-in images—or use them together to give your images more depth - artistic licence so it's your choice on how you stamp. 

Here are some more examples to spur on your creativity.



The punches are so cute!


Also, have you noticed that the images in the Beautiful Autumn Stamp Set are all on the small side? This is designed to give you the freedom to put the images together in a creative way that suits you. Create an eclectic background by stamping one image repeatedly or mixing it up with a few. Stamp them in an accent line. Or use your favourite image as the focal point of the project. What will you create?

Changes!

Stampin' Up! has a couple of conventions each year, and I try to get to at least one of them, but with the way that the world is at the moment, things had to change and so Stampin' Up! gave us an #OnStageAtHome event.  For those that attended, we had our own WhatsApp group so we could chat with other demos, and then settled down to some online fun.  And yes, we even had prize patrols!  

With the convention, we have fun and also a serious side, kind of 'what do you want to do with Stampin' Up!'? I've settled down with my notepad and have decided that rather than the online customer code, and having taken a look at the average order that my customers (you) place, I am going to change this to offering you FREE delivery on your orders that are over £55.  (I'm working on the Euro side of how to do this as obviously I work in £, so at this time this is for my customers who pay in £.  If my European customers have any ideas on how I can get this to work for both you and me, do let me know.

How does it work?  Visit my how to page <click here> for details, and any questions, do get in touch with me.  I will also work out an 'order' page, but at the moment, I am back with the Open University doing my Masters and have an essay that I know that I can write, but for some reason I am having brain freeze! I don't know why as it is Sophocles and Antigone + Anouilh's version.

As always, I am grateful for your support and that you choose to shop with me, who knows, one day I will be a name in the top 100 - now there's a goal eh!

Tag Time

 


A trio of tags.  You can keep them simply or step up and make them fancy.  I certainly love a homemade tag when giving my gifts, whatever the occasion.

Add a bit of yourself when you are giving gifts by making them handmade and heartfelt.  These three tags cover the Casual, Avid and Artfully Avid designs.

For the casual tag, making multiples is easy. Much your tag using the scalloped tag punch, give a rustic feel by ripping the paper.  Stamp your trees and sentiment on whisper white cardstock and simply add to the paper base.  A bit of twine and voila, your casual crafted tag.

Step to up to the AVID tag.  Stamp your images and run them though our Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine with the Warm Wraps Dies, then adhere the die cuts with Stampin’ Dimensionals. Add in some Real Red Cardstock trim along with open-weave ribbon and gold metallic trim from the Forever Greenery Trim Combo Pack for extra charm. 

Step it up even more with the ARTFULLY AVID tag.  Emboss your punched tag with the Wrapped in Texture Embossing Folder. Then spatter some ink splattering using your Aqua Painter before adding some pretty wreath sprigs. This tag is so festive you could almost hang it on your Christmas tree!

You can find the products in my shop at www.mystamporder.co.uk.

Snow many snowflakes

Nature has many ways of showing off her genius, and one of the most notable examples is found in the delicate patterns of snowflakes. Our concept artist decided to highlight the whimsical beauty of these fabulous ice crystals using the So Many Snowflakes Dies (item 153560), a variety of embossing folders, and subtle, pastel colour combinations to create truly breath-taking cards—which can be easily adapted to suit any winter occasion. 

To make the watercolour snowflake accents featured on the Happy Hanukkah and Snowflake Wishes cards:

Apply Blushing Bride and Misty Moonlight ink to the die-cut snowflakes using Sponge Daubers (item 133773)—replicating the soft hues of a wintry, twilight sky. 

Enhance the texture and beauty of these cards using the Winter Snow (item 153577) and Evergreen Forest 3D (item 153576) Embossing Folders, respectively. 

To create the Thank You Snow Much gift bag:

Emboss Brushed Metallic Cardstock (item 153524) using the Woodland Embossing Folder (item 152881) and add peek-through snowflake die-cut pieces for extra charm. 

Who wouldn’t love to receive this darling gift bag, tied with a 1-1/2" (3.8 cm) Metallic Mesh Ribbon (item 153550)? 

Do share your projects showcasing the beauty of snowflakes with your cards and 3D projects, I'd love to see them.

Wednesday Challenge & don't miss more savings!

Welcome to Wednesday, as I call it, 'hump day' as we are in the middle of week.  So, let's get some creativity going and fire up the mojo.  I'd love to see what project you come up with the sketch below.  Post in the comments, or if you are Facebook, over on my page @Esellekpapercraft

Here's this week's challenge, challenge 1, use the sketch as a framework for your project, be inspired:



The paper sale ends on 31 October, I shared a saving on my Facebook page, but here it is also for my dear blog readers.

Do you want to save some ££? I love helping you save and here's a saving if you want it - but after the 31 Oct, the chance will have gone. Here's an example using the Whale of a Time product suite which costs £61.

Now, while the paper is on sale, get what's in the bundle separately and save!

Click on the shopping link >> https://s.tamp.in/GA2tUm to have a shopping cart waiting for you - note that the stamp set bundle is in English so if you want the French or German version, just remove it and add which one you want. You can add to the order (as in you might need more of the paper while it's on offer), or make use of the other product suites that include the 15% off papers!

Loving the plaid!

I am in love with the plaid paper, even more so since it's on sale until the end of October!  If you have a box of scraps, give this challenge a go.  The cards shown below are made using:

  • A Crushed Curry card base
  • A 3-3/4" x 5" (9.5 x 12.7 cm) piece of white cardstock
  • A 4" x 3/4" (10.2 x 1.9 cm) piece of Cajun Craze Cardstock
  • A 5-1/2" x 2" (14 x 5.1 cm) piece of Plaid Tidings Designer Series Paper
  • Life Is Beautiful Stamp Set 



{Click the image below to see the card dimensions}


 
I love the card with the three panels 1-5/8" x 3-3/4" (4.1 x 9.5 cm) panels. It shows the seasons where the first image has the late summer/early autumn, then the second image has a tree in full autumn glory, and then the final third panel has the tree preparing to cosy up and hibernate for the winter. Check out the build-up of leaves on the bottom of the card, which gets bigger with each panel.  

When you get creative, come on over to my Facebook page @EsellekPapercraft and share your projects, I'd love to see what you create.

I'm having a whale of a time!

It's sharing time again!  I just don't want you to miss out on the promotions that are running.  And, also, here's George from the Home Office to help me share this adorable suite with you...


I love this suite so much, and it is great for making tall slimline cards, visit Pinterest for ideas on creating our own masterpieces.

Seriously though, if you want to save some £/€ then do look at getting the bundles, the product suite is just full of crafting happiness, and with the paper sale, maybe add some more paper {just saying}!

The blue ridge mountains of Virginia...

...on the trail of the lonesome pine.

This song popped up in my head when I saw this card and video, which may show my age!  Also, I just love the mountains and have been to the Rocky Mountains in Canada, it's just an amazing sight to see these huge pieces of the Earth rising up.  

Anyway, I want to share with you the In the Pines set, another set on my wish list and not yet in my hands as I space out my wants from the catalogues over the lifetime of the catalogues.  Although, saying that, having seen the video, there may be a sneaky little order going in so I can play.

Watch this video for a couple of ideas of how to get creative with this bundle.
