Ok it’s Mother’s Day on Sunday and if you haven’t made your cards here’s a couple of quick and easy ones that anyone can make before Sunday!
Both of these cards are used with stamps alone, no designer series paper or fancy techniques both can be done very easily with products you have at home and not necessarily Stampin Up products. Use your imagination to improvise with what you have. Why not just use a paint brush and brush some ink from your ink pad onto the cardstock to form a background??
Card number one is using white cardstock for the card, Mint Macaron (new colour in Stampin Up) but you can use any colour ink and cardstock you wish. Even if you don’t have the cardstock to match just use the white cardstock and ink still looks lovely!
I have inked an acrylic block with the ink (use piece of plastic of some sort if you don’t have an acrylic block) ink it up and then spritz it with some water (use a water spray bottle that’s all). Then stamp the inked up block onto your white cardstock and it gives a mottled effect. I did this one twice and it has come out a bit dark but still got a water mottled effect in the background. I then just stamped a flower stamp, this one is from the Petal Palette set but you can use any flowery stamp you have and stamped it in black memento ink over the top. I then stamped the sentiment directly onto the card front and added three little pearls at the bottom. Very easy.
Although I have heaps of designer series paper here in the craft studio, I wanted to show how easy it is to create your own backgrounds without the special papers.
Take some small stamps – the ones in sets that you may overlook – these are great for backgrounds! Randomly stamp the card front. In this one I used three little stamps from the Swirly Birds stamp set (flower, stems and dots) and believe it or not I haven’t used these little stamps before and I think they make a great background. For the dots I stamped them off once so that they are a lot lighter in colour. I used Balmy Blue ink and cardstock another new colour in Stampin Up but as I said if you don’t have this colour use any of the colours you have at home.
I tied some white baker’s twine around the card and silver embossed the sentiment in silver embossing powder but if you don’t have any embossing powder just stamp it in black or the same colour ink you used to do your card. I only have the one Mother’s Day sentiment and you know you don’t have to just say Happy Mother’s Day, I thought always thinking of you is just as appropriate. You always write happy mother’s day inside the card anyway! I adhered it on with dimensionals. Another very simple card when you don’t have a lot of time!
Hope you get some ideas from these cards today and I would love to see your Mother’s day cards you have made.
Cheers for now!

I have had a bit of fun lately trying some new projects I have discovered, just in time for Christmas. I have just sent out my newsletter if you haven’t signed up for my monthly newsletter please click on the link on this page so I can get you all the latest news from Stampin Up.
Here are some great little projects I have been working on. I know I promised a youtube video and that is coming, I assure you some time this week!
I was especially proud of the Christmas Orb ornament which I cased from my demo website. They are all the rage at the moment and so simple to make, really, if I can do it so can you. They don’t just have to be used for Christmas either, depends on how you decorate them they could be used for any occasion and can hold treats. The chocolate coins demonstrated in the pic are great to put inside for that someone special. (These ones didn’t last that long, yum!!!) I can fit classes in between now and Christmas on these ornaments if you wish!! Just contact me to book.
Well I hope you are all ready for the festive season. Looking forward to a great Christmas and an even better 2018.
Merry Christmas and a very happy new year and thank you all for your continued support with Wynning Creations!!!
Had a fun day in the craft room yesterday creating and crafting in all my glory, that is in between chasing Tilly the dog to stop her from barking at the neighbours!!!
I had been wanting to make a shaker card for a long time now and decided now was the time. I had all the supplies, I had an idea in mind of what I wanted not sure about this one but it was, as I said my first attempt. So many things you can do. Have you ever made a shaker card? Let me know what you think. The foam strips are great to use around the shape of the window to create the space you need to hold the sequins inside. Yes there are silver sequins inside, the picture doesn’t really do it justice.
Note to self: I really must stop talking to myself and the dog while I’m crafting, Tilly has nothing constructive to say!!!
These are great ideas for the kid’s birthdays and Christmas etc.
I also got on the Christmas cone wreath bandwagon which was also great fun to make and will hang this in December when I put the Christmas decorations up!
Don’t forget any of these products you can purchase from my secure online 24/7 shop. Just click on the link at the side. The current catalogues are also only a click away!!
Or if you would like to come and do a class, just give me a call 0419721561 or an email firstname.lastname@example.org would love to share these techniques with you.
Thanks for stopping by today and have a great day!
Hi all, well don’t know what happened to the beautiful sunshine this morning but it has come over a bit cloudy here in Brissy!! Good time to head to the craft room to have a play with my new products. Today I have made a card using the bunch of blossoms stamp set which was on my wish list. Hope you like it. I have also used the new border punch around the edge but used the bottom section of the punch so it looks like a scallop border. This card would be good for any occasion, birthday, friendship or even a sympathy card, just add whatever sentiment you would like.
Cheers for now.
Love love love the new Birthday Delivery set with the beautiful designer series paper. I think the bright colours with a touch of the old world is just delightful. Could not wait to make a card using this wonderful set. Hope you like it.
