Detailed Gate sneak peak

So here I was today, prepping for my upcoming classes, when my lovely box of yummy goodness arrived containing all my Holiday catalogue pre-order products.

Easily distracted was always a common line written on my school reports and I’m pleased to let you know not much has changed! Here is what I created during my distraction period.

Rose Packer, Creative Roses, Stampin' Up!, Detailed Gate Framelit

I’m not one to celebrate Halloween, but as soon as I saw that Detailed Gate thinlit… I had to have it. It’s just so beautiful and intricate. I always look forward to this section of the Holiday catalogue as it always some really cool product you can adapt for other occasions, they always appeal to my inner gothic side.

Here, I teamed it up with Floral Phrases stamp set and made a wedding card. The gate comes as one piece, but here I decided to make a gatefold front so I could decorate the rest of my card font.

First, I punched out my gate from Gold foil. I trimmed Gold Foil and Very Vanilla pieces of cardstock to size. I positioned the gate where I wanted it sit when finished to get a visual. This helped when stamping my flower, as I wanted it to sit just above the main bar of the gate. Same with stamping my sentiment at the top. I set the gate aside and stamped the banner twice, beneath the flower without inking in between so I had a tone effect. I left a gap between them, so that my ribbon wouldn’t cover too much of the images. I finished off the front with some some gold hearts from the Metallic Enamel Shapes, and some bows in the Gold 1/8” ribbon.

Next I went about assembling my card, adhering my vanilla piece to the Gold Foil and then my gate. This is when I sliced my gate in half, and folded the little wings around to stick to the back of the Gold Foil sheet, thus giving a nice neat wrap around. I adhered this on my Very Vanilla cardbase – it’s the new thick weight Vanilla which is just perfect for supporting heavier card front designs. I finished off with decorating the inside to match.

I’m sure I’ll be back with more sneak peaks soon.

Detailed Floral… for weddings

I have been focussing on these gorgeous dies over the past week. They are just so lovely and classy. They are specifically designed with special occasions like Weddings or Engagements in mind, but really the sky is the limit isn’t it.

I just love the water colour floral element used in my card in last post, it’s so delicate. The inspiration for that card and for today’s wedding card came from Stampin’ Up! latest catalogue – 2016-17 Annual Catalogue. It’s from the Everyday Occasions section on pages 76 and 77.

This stamp and die set comes with a series of coordinated products to help make your projects look amazing with minimal effort. Here I have made a Wedding card, using a gate fold. It’s so simple but elegant in white and touches of gold.

The inside has a little gold flower detail. I created this by punching out a flower from gold foil using one of the dies and placing the gold petals around the one of the gold circles from the metallic enamel shapes pack.

Finished off with a strip of gold foil at the top and bottom of my stamped section and some of that yummy Natural Trim with the gold stripe.

Case-ing the Catty blogspot

The Everyday Occasions section of the catalogue was featured over at CASEing The Catty this month, so I am entering this card in their monthly challenge.

I had this in mind when I designed this one for my Occasions Masterclass I hosted last weekend. All the class attendees loved it. Hope you enjoy the inspiration too.

Until next time… Stamp Creatively,

Happy Notes for a wedding

Recently I was asked to make a wedding card. Here is what I came up with.

Rose Packer Creative Roses Stampin' Up! Happy Notes

The stamp is from the Happy Notes stamp set, which is retiring in just one more week. It’s a rather large sentiment stamp so it’s perfect to use as the main feature like this. You know what I love the most – the line work design above and below the word Wedding – crazy I know! I love little details like that.

In this card, I highlighted the word Wedding with some gold embossing and layering it as flag over the top of the same image stamped in Blushing Bride ink. I was careful not to lose those cute little lines.

The rest of the card is made using printed vellum, Designer series paper, gold foil paper and finished with some ribbon. Hope you like it.

Until next time… Stamp creatively,
Rose.

2 great people… 1 great life…

I’ve been dying to use those two stamps from the Something to Say stamp set. So when I was asked to make a wedding card this week, I jumped at the chance. I just love those two stamps and what they say…. it brings up all kinds of visuals for me about the future.

CYCI111-300x226

With the any three colours challenge over at Can You Case it? CYCI#111 this week, it set the scene for this simple but elegant wedding card.

 

Rose Packer Creative Roses Bloomin' Heart Wedding

I really do like the Bloomin’ Heart die, it’s so great for weddings. The gold foil is very sparkly but when used in the background like this, it tones it down to a more stylish appearance.

Until next time… Stamp creatively,
Rose.
