Monday Makes features Fathers’ Day

Well we’re just under a week from Fathers’ Day here in Australia, so Leonie and I decided to feature Fathers’ Day cards this week. Make sure you pop on over and see what Leonie of Stamp A Latte fame has to share with you too.

I have 3 cards to share with you today and for a change I have photographed the insides of the cards to share with you as well. Now I must tell you all these cards are CASED from Pinterest which is a great source of inspiration. Here’s the first card:

Fathers_Day2

And the inside view

Fathers_Day3

I just love this Typeset DSP – it’s so versatile and you can use so many different colours with it. However, I’ve chosen to stick with Basic Black and Early Espresso with these cards. Here’s my second card:

Fathers_Day

And the inside:

Fathers_Day1 Both cards are very similar and use the same products. Now for something totally different. I’ve made this card so it can be for any occasion for a man, really. I CASED this one from a swap I received at Convention this year, I think. Now the original had just the front part of the card. However, I always think it’s nice to have a whole card so you have 2 places to write or place a sentiment if you want to.

Fathers_Day4

And the outside with the doors slightly ajar

Fathers_Day5

So, that’s it for my shares today. I hope I’ve been able to give you some inspiration to create a handmade card for that special Father in your life.

  • Card – Very Vanilla, Early Espresso, Basic Black, Soft Suede

Money Wallet Tutorial (VIDEO)

20140830_090942

Last Monday, for Monday Makes with Leonie from Stamp-A-Latte, we both featured projects using the Big Shot Bundles. Leonie featured the Daydream medallions bundle and if you haven’t seen her project, you really shouldn’t miss it. You can see it here. I used the Celebrating Chalk Talk Bundle and promised a video tutorial on how I created it. So a couple of days late, but here it is.

Now I mention in the video Australia’s paper/plastic type money comes in different lengths. The one in the video will fit in the longer denominations ($10, $20, $50 etc). The one pictured above fits our A$5 note. If your country’s money is a different length just adjust the length of the tag and the wallet accordingly.

Monday Makes meets Celebrating Chalk Talk

I love it when I can bring you not only a Monday Makes with Leonie, post but a bargain as well. We decided to use as our inspiration this week, the Big Shot Bundles that Stampin’ Up! has a promotion until the end of August. So, I have chosen Celebrating Chalk Talk. I love this bundle for its versatility. If you look back a few posts, you’ll see I used it on Mason Jars for Fathers’ Day Gift ideas – Sweet Jars meet Stampin’ Up!. Today I have made a card and a money Gift Card as my creative projects to share with you.

CelebratingChalkTalk3

I did CASE this card from Pinterest as I loved the idea. I love black and white and the ease with which they make a classy looking card. The Tag stamp and framelit team well with the effect and the bow has a place to sit neatly on the tag.

PRODUCTS USED:

  • Card – Black and Whisper White
  • Stamps – Everything Eleanor and Chalk Talk
  • Big Shot – Chalk Talk Framelits
  • Embossing – Embossing Buddy, Heat Tool, White Emboss Powder
  • Ink – VersaMark and Memento Tuxedo Black
  • Other – White Stampin’ Chalk Marker, Whisper White Satin Ribbon, Snail and Dimensionals

My other share with you today is a Gift Money Wallet or Card which fits paper money inside, quite nicely and looks like a card on the outside.

CelebratingChalkTalk2

I’ll have a video tutorial on how to make this and the elements on the front of the wallet, later in the week.  Again, I’ve used the large tag from the Chalk Talk bundle as it fits beautifully on the front of this wallet. You can see it would look great as just a card as well.

CelebratingChalkTalk4

You could easily change this up to make it suitable for a male. That’s another great thing about this bundle. There are more stamps and framelits to the set, so come back later in the week to see what else I come up with to share. Now, don’t forget to pop on over to Leonie’s Stamp-A-Latte page and see what she’s created with one of the wonderful Big Shot Bundles.

PRODUCTS USED:

  • Card – Blackberry Bliss, Whisper White and Hello Honey

Blended Bloom with Vellum Card

On Monday, Leonie and I shared our Blended Bloom cards. Whilst visiting the lovely Ann Craig, she showed us how to water-colour using Early Espresso ink and Leonie shared her beautiful card with that sample. My share was the Black and White with Vellum and I did say I would share the cards made using the 2 other Blended Bloom samples I shared with you.

Here is the one using Wisteria Wonder Blendabilities on the back of the Silver embossed Blended Bloom:

Blended_Bloom

I stamped the image with VersaMark ink and then used Silver Emboss powder and my heat tool on low. I’ve used Wisteria Wonder Blendabilities for the petals of the flower and Pumpkin Pie Blendabilities for the centre of the flower. I’ve attached it to the card front using Glue Dots.

PRODUCTS USED FOR THIS CARD:

  • Card – Wisteria Wonder, Whisper White and Vellum
  • Ink – Wisteria Wonder and VersaMark
  • Stamp Set – Bloom with Hope (Hostess Wood 133949)
  • Ribbon – Wisteria Wonder Chevron
  • Blendabilities – Wisteria Wonder and Pumpkin Pie
  • Emboss Powder – Silver
  • Other – Heat Tool, Glue Dots, Snail
