Using Delightfully Detailed Laser-Cut Specialty DSP As Masks/Stencils

I have really been enjoying using the Delightfully Laser-Cut DSP for a variety of projects.   Its so pretty for using as backgrounds, overlays, and also as stencils.

I cut myself a piece of one of the more robust designs (the majority of the pack is of an exceptionally fine and lightweight quality).



I used Very Vanilla card stock as my base layer and used a blending tool to apply a rainbow of colours working them gently across my Delightfully Detailed "stencil/mask".  I did unwittingly sneak a retired colour in there - Watermelon Wonder (finding it hard to let go !!!!)

When finished, I cut my layer down to 3 1/4 x 4 3/4 inches and adhered it to a piece of fun foam cut slightly smaller, then stuck this to a Very Vanilla Note Card.  Adding a foam base really does make it feel like a quality card.



I rather like how it turned out.

Thanks for looking - and have a nice day.

Beautiful Flower Toppers Using the Daisy Punch


These beautiful flower toppers are super for decorating your box projects.


They are really sturdy and eye-catching and can be made in a matter of minutes too.  For mine I also used a scallop circle die-cut to stick the layers of petal to the base, in order to give the flower a little more depth and to make it stronger.

I also used the leaf punch to add some leaves which I curled around my simply scored stylus to give the leaves more dimension.

This quick video demonstration provides step by step instructions on how to make them:-



Hope you like them and feel inspired to have a go at making some.

Thanks for looking.   Have a lovely day.

Pop Open/Self-Closing Sour Cream Carton Style Treat Pouches in Petal Promenade DSP

These sour cream carton style treat pouches pop open and snap shut and are perfect for holding little treats.  The supplies needed to make them are minimal and mine are decorated with just a simple bow and a subtle sparkly trim - making them understated but quite sophisticated.



They are super quick and super easy to make, and you can get four of these out of just one sheet of 12 x 12 inch DSP (48 out of one complete pack).

I made mine using Petal Promenade DSP.  I have made loads of projects with it this week and think it is just beautiful.

The pouches would make brilliant Wedding Favours, Pillow Gifts, and Dinner Party settings, etc.

Below is my video tutorial giving you step by step instructions on how I made mine.



Hope you like today's project and I hope you have a lovely day.  Thanks for looking.

Petal Promenade DSP With Delightfully Detailed Overlay

Today's card uses the beautiful Petal Promenade Designer Series Papers, which I have used throughout most of this week for my projects. 



This time I have added a really pretty laser-cut overlay.  The overlay is from the Delightfully Detailed Laser-Cut Specialty Papers which are proving to be just as popular as the Petal Promenade papers.

I think the two work especially together in creating a very feminine little card.

The laser-cut frames which form part of the designs in the pack are the perfect size for using with Stampin' Up!s Note Cards and Envelopes.  One side of the papers is white, whilst the reverse is more creamy like Very Vanilla card stock.




The Delightfully Detailed Laser-Cut papers are exceptionally delicate to work with, as the paper has a very lightweight fine quality.

Hope you like my project today - I have another Petal Promenade project coming up next week.  I can't get enough of those papers.

Thanks for looking - and have a lovely weekend.

Gifts for my Team Members - Easy Gift Cases with Video Tutorial

This month has seen a little "joining" frenzy as customers and fans of Stampin' Up! products have been taking advantage of the July joining offer, whereby you pay £99 to join and select your own customised kit worth £130 PLUS you can select one complete colour family of inkpads (10 per colour family) COMPLETELY FREE (worth £63) !   However, time is fast running out as this promotion ends on 31st July.

Anyway, I was very honoured to have been joined by Maddy this week, which was a lovely surprise.


Like all members who join my team, Maddy will be receiving a Welcome Gift from me as a little "Thank You".   My Welcome Gift is one of these gorgeous gift cases which I customise by adding these cute little handles (I buy mine from B&Q).  I love the Petal Promenade Designer Series Papers and decided to use it for Maddy's case.   I think it looks really pretty and feminine.   I like to add a few little extras such as a covered notepad in the same DSP and a prettily packaged chocolate bar (in this case a Ripple).

These handy little cases make great stocking fillers at Christmas, sweet birthday presents and also brilliant items to sell at Craft Fayres.  So lots of possibilities for them.

I have put together an updated video tutorial for this case which you will find below:-


Hope you like my little cases and that you may be inspired to have a go yourselves.

Thanks for looking - and please pop back.

Bye for now,

Linda xx
