Every Lovely Word

Hello everyone,

I am back again today with another swap card.  This one is from Michelle Hornback in Glasgow, KY.  I love the paper she used for this card.  I ordered 3 packs of this paper and believe it or not, I have less than half a pack left!  It is gorgeous!

This card uses Night of Navy and Crumb Cake as it’s two main colours.  The stampset is from the Love & Affection set (and I didn’t notice the saying before, but it is so lovely!).  The paper pack is the Affectionately Yours Specialty Designer Series Paper (and I think I might just have enough left to do this card!).

You can find these supplies and more in my online store at www.lisahenderson.stampinup.net

Enjoy!

Welcome to the World

Hello Everyone!

I a back today with a super cute baby card.  And the best part–leave the inside blank and it could double as a Hello card, or a Birthday card!

welcome-to-the-world-front

welcome-to-the-worldOne of my favourite bundles in the new catalog is the Foxy Friends bundle.  The stampset is absolutely adorable, but the punch is so versatile!

To make the skunk, punch out the body, face and tail in Basic Black cardstock.  Then punch out the face mask (stamp the eyes and nose before attaching), the head stripe, and then to get the chest patch, punch a second face mask, and to get the stripe on the tail, punch another tail, all in Whisper White Cardstock.  Once the Whisper White pieces are punched, cut the tail using your snips, along the length (just make sure to create an S-shape).  At the base it will overhang, but that’s ok, as it will be behind the skunk body.  For the chest, simply cut the Whisper White face mask in half.  To assemble, I find the fine tip glue works best, but you don’t need much.  Just a few dots is plenty!

Supplies:

  • Happy Happenings Stampset
  • A Little Foxy Designer Series Paper Stack
  • Foxy Friends Bundle
  • Whisper White Cardstock
  • Basic Black Cardstock
  • Pool Party Cardstock
  • Smoky Slate Cardstock
  • Memento Ink
  • Basic Grey Archival Ink
  • Silver Glimmer Paper
  • Triple Banner Punch
  • Metallic Enamel Shapes

Thank you

Hello everyone!

A new catalog also means new swap cards!  And my swap cards finally arrived (thankfully before the impending postal strike!).  And I love each and every one of them!

This first one unfortunately didn’t have a name on it (if it’s yours please let me know–I’d love to give you credit!).  I love how it uses 3 of the new in colours: dapper denim, emerald envy, and peekaboo peach!

This card also uses the basic jewels rhinestones, thoughtful banners bundle and the Love & Affection stampset.  Cute isn’t it?

You can find all these supplies and more, in my online store at www.lisahenderson.stampinup.net

Flourishes Part 2!

Hello,

I am back today with a simpler mate to the card from yesterday.  This was also a part of the customer order I did.  I purposely made them match as they are going to a teacher and educational assistant.  The ones for the customer were also in french, but I didn’t take a picture of them with my good camera before I delivered them!

Supplies:

  • Thick White Cardstock
  • Pool Party Cardstock
  • Whisper White Cardstock
  • Flourish Thinlits
  • Basic Rhinestones
  • Silver Embossing Powder
  • Versamark
  • Heat Gun
  • Thoughtful Banners Bundle

One thing I would highly recommend with this thinlit set is the fine tip glue.  It is needle fine, and you will need it for these dies!  Once it’s unsealed, you don’t need to squeeze the glue, just add drops every once in a while.  And make sure to put the cap on–it is literally needle point thin, and once the glue dries in there, it is difficult to get out!

You can buy these supplies and more at my online store at www.lisahenderson.stampinup.net

Flourishes

Hello!

Welcome back!  I have another card that was created as a part of a custom order last week.  I had been admiring a card by Alyssa at Song of My Heart using the new Flourish thinlits, and I LOVED her colour combo of Pool Party and Basic Black!  I need a card for my custom order for a teacher thank you, and for an EA as well, and the customer wanted something feminine.  I thought pairing the Whisper White with Pool Party might fit the bill (it reminds me of Tiffany’s jewellery boxes for some reason!), and it did!flowering-flourishes

Supplies:

  • Thick White Cardstock
  • Whisper White Cardstock
  • Pool Party Cardstock
  • Basic Rhinestones
  • Flourish Thinlits
  • 1 1/4″ Circle Punch

  • Silver Embossing Powder

  • Versamark

I will be back tomorrow with the matching card!  You can pick up these supplies and more at www.lisahenderson.stampinup.net

Merci & Thank you

Hello!

At a craft fair I was recently at, I had a request for some thank you cards, in French.  I also needed some thank you cards for myself, and I wanted to play with my new Foxy Friends Bundle, so here is what I came up with!merci-and-thankyou

I made 12 of these, some in English, some in French.  I don’t have a lot of French sets yet, something I’m working on fixing, so I turned to my old rotary stamp which has been discontinued, but you could easily substitute the new Labeler Alphabet set!

Supplies:

  • Foxy Friends Bundle
  • A Little Foxy Designer Series Paper Stack
  • Thick White Cardstock
  • Pool Party Cardstock
  • Rotary Alphabet Stamp
  • Pumpkin Pie Ink
  • Memento Ink

Enjoy!
