"Create With Kathe" for Thursday 4th December 2014


 #CreateWithKathe #JorjaRoseFiles

This week we made 2 cards, the first a New Zealand themed Christmas Card, featuring the Pohutukawa flower, and the stamp sets “Ornamental Pine” and “That’s The Ticket”.
The second card, an “Emboss Resist” card, in colours of Elegant Eggplant and Wisterias Wonder, and featuring my new stamp set “Blooming With Kindness”, and the “Chalk Talk” framelits.

Project 1 "New Zealand Christmas Card"


The measurements are:
Base Pool Party 5 ½”x 8”, scored at 4”
Layer Pool Party 5, 3/8”x 3, 7/8”
Layer Naturals White 5, 3/8”x 3, 7/8”
Insert Naturals White 5, 3/8”x 3, 7/8”

Following on with last weeks stamp set of “Ornamental Pine”, we used this stamp set again this week {again with the Oval cut using he Big Shot and “Ovals Collection” Framelits}, however we coloured the pine needles with the Real Red and Soft Suede Stampin’ Markers, and created a Pohutukawa flower.
A Christmas Ornament hangs from the stem, stamped on Vellum with Black StazOn, and coloured with the Blendabilities on the reverse, and Stampin’ Glitter in Dazzling Diamonds and a Pearl Basic Jewel are added to the centre of the Ornament.


The ladies {and JorjaRose} got to choose from Calypso Coral, Coastal Cabana, Cherry Cobbler, Crumb Cake, Daffodil Delight, Melon Mambo, Night Of Navy, Old Olive, Pumpkin Pie, Rich Razzleberry, Smoky Slate, AND Wisteria Wonder Blendabilities.
Now here’s a head up … in the new Occasions brochure beginning 6th January 2015, Stampin’ Up! have released 4 new colours Bermuda Bay, Pink Pirouette, Soft Sky and Wild Wasabi!!!


NEW Occasions brochure beginning 6th January 2015

The sentiment “Christmas Wishes” are stamped in Real Red on to the Pool Party layer.
A sweet bow in Real Red Seam Binding Ribbon and Linen Thread are added.
The finishing touch are the 3 Pearl Basic Jewels added to the bottom right-hand corner.


For the card insert, the sentiment “May the peace and beauty of the season remain with you throughout the coming year” is stamped in Real Red.
Some tickets stamped from the “That’s The Ticket” stamp are stamped in Real Red, and punched with the “Ticket Duo Builder”, and adhered with a staple.
The top of the insert is punched with the Spiral Border Punch, and the finishing touch, a home-made Candy Dot, made with the Crop-A-Dile and some Real Red cardstock, and adhered with a Glue Dot, on the bottom right-hand corner.
Wah-lah … "New Zealand Christmas Card" done!

Project 2 "Emboss Resist “Blooming With Kindness” Card"


The measurements are:

Base Smoky Slate 4”x 11”, scored at 5 ½”
Layer Elegant Eggplant 3, 7/8” x 5, 3/8”
Layer Wisteria Wonder 3, ¾” x 5, ¼”
Insert Whisper White 3, 7/8” x 5, 3/8”

This card is all about the layering, and of course using one stamp set for the entire card, this time the stamp set used is called “Blooming With Kindness”.
The Wisteria Wonder cardstock is embossed with the “Large Polka Dot” Textured Impressions Embossing Folder.
Wisteria Wonder Seam Binding Ribbon is adhered along the length of the Wisteria Wonder cardstock.
A sweet little bow in “Crumb Cake” and “Wisteria Wonder” Seam Binding Ribbon, along with Venetian Crochet Trim are added, and finished off with a vintage safety pin.
The Wisteria Wonder cardstock is then adhered to the Elegant Eggplant layer, which in turn is adhered to the Smoky Slate layer.
The sentiment “Thank You” is stamped in Elegant Eggplant on to Whisper White cardstock, and then cut using the Big Shot and the “Chalk Talk” Framelits.
The border is drawn around the inside edge of the Framelit with the Elegant Eggplant Stampin’ Write Marker, and the sentiment is then adhered with Dimensionals.
The flower from the “Blooming With Kindness” stamp set is stamped in Versamark, and heat set with White Embossing Powder and the Heat Tool.
The flower is then sponged over using a ¼ ‘ed “Stamping Sponges” and the Elegant Eggplant Classic Stampin’ Pad. This technique is called “Emboss Resist” as the ink does not stick to where the image has been embossed, rather the colour seeps into the crevasses of the stamped image.
The flower image is then cut using the Bread Tag from the “Chalk Talk” Framelits.   The Tag is then adhered with DImensionals.
Venetian Crochet Trim is adhered in a V with a staple, and an Antique Brad is pushed through a Very Vintage Designed Button, and adhered over the Venetian Crochet Trim.


For the card Insert, the same Bloom is stamped with Elegant Eggplant, along with the sentiment “Your kindness makes such a difference”.
The Hearts Border Punch is punched along the edge, and then the card insert is adhered to the card base.
Wah-lah … "Emboss Resist “Blooming With Kindness” Card" done!
