#6 remake it Monday Free standing pop-Up Card Using graceful garden

Hi Everyone,

Welcome to my Blog & project number 6 of my remake it Monday series!

Today i have chosen to remake a gorgeous po-up card that i did about 1 1/2 years ago. I love this card as it really is very quick & simple to make & one of the best things is that it folds flat for postage!

Here is the original card i made:

I made today's version in Petal pallet DSP & the Graceful Garden stamp set. The original was made using a now retired hostess stamp set called Gift of love. I loved that stamp set, it was one of my favourites.

I hope you like the project i have chosen today & will have a go at making one yourself, or even remaking one!!

As usual i have provided the link below for my YouTube tutorial & also the products i used to create today's card.
Please remember to use my hostess code if you place an order with me & it is below £150. This will enable me to send you some FREE stampin Up! products at the end of the month when i close the hostess code down.

#8 Sale-A-Bration Sunday-The Black Ice Effect Using Your SAB Stamp Sets.

Hi Everyone,

Welcome to my Blog & project number 8 of my Sale-A-Bration Sunday series.

I really hope you are enjoying all the projects that i have been bringing you. Its hard to believe that Sale-A-Bration will be over in a couple of weeks!!

Today i have some pretty cards for you that i made using a technique called 'Black Ice'. I have seen a couple of people use this amazing technique & if you have not tried it, you really need to! Its awesome.

I am really pleased with the way my cards turned out & this is really easy to do. I think these would make fab male cards.

To do this technique you will need a Black archival Ink pad, a Versamark Ink pad & some clear embossing powder. You will also need some Silver foil card stock.

The card in the picture above was made with Champagne foil and the Beautiful Peacock card was made with copper foil. So you don't just have to use silver foil. Have a play around and see which version you like best!! 

Please check out my YouTube tutorial for full instructions. You can find the link for it at the end of this post. Please make sure you subscribe to my channel for all new uploads.

I have also listed all the products i used to make these cards at the end of this post. Please remember to use my Hostess code if your order is less than £150. This allows me to send you some lovely Stampin Up! products for FREE.

Thank you for stopping by and i will be back tomorrow with my Remake it Monday tutorial.

Bye for now

Love Ann xx

Fold Flat, Heat Embossed Magnetic Closure Gift Box!

Hi Everyone,

Welcome to my Blog on this fantastic Friday!!

Today i have a really lovely box for you. These types of boxes are not 'new' in any way & they have been made by lots of people.
What i love about this box is that it folds flat and is really easy to make. Another great thing is that its also a very good size, you can get lots of goodies in here.

I used the beautiful Rose Wonder stamp set for this project & i thought it would be nice to stamp one of the gorgeous verses inside. I just thought it would be nice when the person opens it.

This box was made in Tranquil tide which is a gorgeous colour but i don't use it as much as i should. I think the silver embossing looks so nice with the Green.
