Window Sheets - Day 5

This very simple straight forward card was made using some of the left over from the day 3 card.
I kept the negative from the Glimmer paper.

I diecut another Celebrate from a piece of Copper Foiled card and 
placing it on the reverse of the acetate, stuck it to the Night of Navy cardstock so that
it will show through.

I love the way that the glimmer paper and foil are set off so well on the dark cardstock. 

A simple message from Amazing Congratulations on the front and inside...

 ... along with the Congratulations which was a 3 step stamping effect.
I am really pleased that this very simple card.
Honestly, it is very simple.
Thank you for joining me this week but please pop by next week to see
what amazing creations that Cary has designed.
Thank you, Gill

Window Sheets - Day 4

For this card I wanted to scallop the edges so using the Seasonal Layers Framelits Dies, some Dazzling Diamonds glimmer paper, Calypso Coral, Pool Party and Whisper White cardstock and inks.

I used the Sweet and Sassy heart shaped framelits too in layers to get this colourful effect.

This time I made the card with the Calypso Coral cardstock but only a very small piece at the front.
I added the Window Sheet then the other 3 layers on top.

The blue on the scalloped edge is a piece of DSP from the Petal Garden DSP range.

The message and the flowers are from Happy Birthday Gorgeous and the LOVE is
from the Sunshine Wishes Dies.

Window Sheets and a sneak peak - Day 3

Today I have only used dies and no stamps.
Can you see or recognise the sneak peak?

The first one is the ever so lovely Detailed Floral Thinlit Dies.
These were stuck onto the Window Sheet at the centre fold with some tape.

I made a card base with the acetate then stuck a panel inside on the back of the card. 

Then I used the Celebrate You thinlits which were available during Saleabration recently.
Yes, they're going to be in the New catalogue on 1st June.

I die cut these in Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer paper.
Have you spotted the other sneak peak?
It's Coastal Cabana cardstock that was an In Colour a good few years ago!

Window Sheets - Day 2

Back to cards today and my first one reminds me a little of Christmas.
I'm sure you can see why.

I have used Lovely as a Tree. One of my all time favourite stamp sets.
The image was stamped in Versamark then White embossing powder.

I heat embossed the image onto Old Olive cardstock.
I have also stamped onto the Window Sheet and heat embossed them the same way.

The little leaves are made with the Leaf punch, then I added several Rhinestones to
adds some bling.

 The message is from the Special Celebrations.
A very versatile stamp set which I am glad to say will be in the new catalogue.

Weekly Inspiration

Window Sheets

This week I will be showing you some ideas using the Stampin' Up! Window sheets 
also known as thick sheets of acetate.
Here are my first projects.

Surprise, surprise, I've made 3D gift containers! I NEVER make this kind of project!
Why? I have NO idea!
This one is using Lemon Lime Twist cardstock, Fresh Floral DSP and coordinating ribbon. 
I've also added the daisy using the daisy punch.

A few weekends ago, Cary and I, along with several thousand other Stampin' Up! Demonstrators,
met up all over the world. 
We went to Telford and one of the swaps I saw was a container similar to this one.

I'm sure that you've possibility seen the shape before. I hadn't!
A simple rectangle sealed at one end
and creased and folded to form the shape here.
Much easier than I thought it would be and I'm rather pleased with it too.

This one I made using the envelope punch board. The window sheets are extremely strong and 
they need to be well creased to give the shape.


I used the lovely Fresh Florals Dsp and Berry Burst cardstock and some of the coordinating ribbon 
for this one. 
I have placed a small square of card in the base of the box.

This last package is ideal for a gift card. 
To conceal anything in the containers you can always wrap the item in some tissue paper.
This was made using the envelope punch board this time.

I have used Pool Party cardstock and ribbon along with the Floral Phrases stamp set.

Some very simple and straightforward packaging to enhance any small gift that you may want to give.
That's it from me for 3D items. 
Cards using the Window Sheets tomorrow. I hope you can pop by to have a look.

Sketches - Day 3

Today's card is a much simpler one.

Using the Score board, I scored lines across the mat in a criss-cross style.
I added a piece of the lovely quarter inch, Island Indigo Ombre Ribbon. 
Sadly it's retiring as is the lovely Birthday Blossoms stamp set.
Retiring is good as it makes way for all of the gorgeous NEW products to come. 

I used some pieces of paper from the Birthday Memories DSP adhered them to Soft Sky mats.
Then using the half inch punch, punched out the corners.

I raised the squares with Dimensionals then added some of the lovely mini bows.


This is the card that I was inspired by.

 So thank you to Debby.
