Harriet's Salon

Harriet's Salon

Hello and thank you for joining me today ...

I was asked to make a special 21st birthday card for a friends daughter.   Harriet has her own space at a Salon where does does make overs and can achieve some amazing results with her make up skills.   Harriet's mum Cath managed to take some sneaky photos of Harriet's work space and asked me to do something special.    Explosion boxes are perfect for this and that's what I decided to do ..... Here are  photos I worked from...

And here is what I made ....   I used nearly all Stampin' Up! card and DSP. I also used Dies from SU and Stampin' Blends ...

Hope you like what I made ,,

Thank you so much for stopping by, I'd love it if you could leave a comment for me please

Snowflake Christmas Decoration

Simple but Stunning Decoration

Hey thank you so much for joining me today ...

Stampin' Up! have this AMAZING snowflake die set that is available to purchase until the end of November 2018 .... then its GONE .... that makes me so sad as it is just the most stunning set I have ever seen ...
SNOWFALL THINLITS ..... 149692  
You get 20 dies .... which works out to £1.80 per die and as you can see some of them are huge ..... 

I decided to make a Christmas decoration with mine ....  I used a largish sized box frame from Ikea and used Basic Black card stock behind the square mount .

I cut a selection of the stars out from the Champagne Foil 144748 and the Copper Foil 142020 and WOW they look AMAZING and cut so beautifully. 

I Layered up the snowflakes starting with the largest and used Silicon Glue between each snowflake but don't squash it down flat as you want all the layers to stand out from each other.    When arranging the snowflakes I also decided to alternate the colours rather than sticking to just one,  this was to not only add some colour but it also helped to make each snowflake stand out from the one below.
Then to finish it off I used the snowflake swirl at the top of the frame mount. 

I am so pleased with how it turned out ....   Here is a LINK to the Video TUTORIAL on my youTube channel 
It is such a quick and simple project but is SOOOOOOO stunning ..
LINK to my shop ..... you only have till the end of November to purchase the dies so hurry while stocks last ...
  If you do make one please share it on Social Media and Tag me in it so I can see ..

Many thanks for stopping by

Hey everyone, 

Thank you so much for stopping by .....   The card I am sharing today is Card 1 of my Christmas card series for 2018..

For this card you will need .... Whisper White Card stock .... 106549
                                           .... Tufted Embossing Folder .... 146335
                                           .... Black Foil Sheets .....   147898
                                           .... Detailed Deer Thinlits .... 147915
                                          ..... Merry Christmas Thinlits .... 147912

Start by cutting an A4 sheet of Whisper White Card stock in half Portrait ( at 10.5cm or 4 1/8th" ) and score at   15cm or 5 7/8ths".... 

Now cut a piece of the Black Foil Card  14.5cm x 10.3cm or 5 3/4 x 4 1/16"  and put this in your tuffted embossing folder and run through your die cutting machine.

Using Whisper White Card cut out 3 or 4 of the jumping stag and glue them altogether .... Do the same with the word MERRY.

To assemble your card stick the embossed black foil to your card base ( if you want to add a ribbon around the bottom of the card do this to the black foil before gluing to your base card.

delightfully Detailed mask

Delightfully Detailed ..... mask

Here is the 2nd part to the blog from yesterday and the YouTube video also from yesterday ....  In fact this was the WHOLE reason I I did the technique in the first place and the Delightfully Detailed Paper which got coated in the STUNNING Silver Embossing powder was just a by product from what I am showing today.     Enough waffle from me .... here is the card
I achieved this effect but firstly coating a piece of card 12cm x 8.5cm with Versamark and then covered that with Stampin' Up! Bronze embossing powder ....... I then repeated this 3 more times so I had a lovely thick base .

Next I taped on my chosen Delightfully detailed small panel with removable tape and inked it up again with Versamark ... I then removed the paper "Mask' and sprinkled on some beautiful dark red embossing powder ....  I heated this up with my heat tool , waited for it to cool then repeated the process with the Mask .... the panel I used was very easy to match up over the already melted red embossing powder .

As the powder starts to melt it sinks into the Bronze and gets like a ceramic tile effect to it ... it is beautiful ...

i then put the card together Using Rich Razzleberry Card and Very Vanilla card stock.
I die cut the "Celebrate' Word from Stampin' Up! 3 times in Very vanilla and once in Rich Razzleberry and glued the VV together right on top of each other then off set the RR so you could see the VV beneath it (as above)

For the centre of the Daisy Punch flower I used a good size blob of Silicon Glue and then covered it with the Metallic Sequins ..
