Double Twisted Easel Card Tutorialblog hop banner-001

Welcome! If you didnt arrive from Kathe Oldham at The JorjaRose Files then make sure you click all the way through to see all the great projects featuring our Favourite Products that are retiring from the Stampin’ Up! catalogue.

My projects feature the retiring set Today and Everyday which is one of my favourites. I used it to make my Mum’s Mothers Day Card and try a new Fancy Fold called a Double Twisted Easel.


I used the super word set Crazy About You from the  Occasions Catalogue for the sentiments and leaf stamping. The DSP is also from the Occasions catalogue and is called Painted Blooms. The card colours are Crisp Cantaloupe and Baked Brown Sugar.  I’m quite sad to see these 2013-2015 In Colours going as they were real favourites with me. And it’s too late now to get any more as the Cardstock is all gone : (

Take a closer look at the two display fronts. One is very clean and simple but the other has been coloured, fussy cut and layered to make it 3D and Crumb Cake seam binding threaded through some punched holes. I was this technique on a card by Sandi Hartka


I also added a touch of gold with my Stampin’ Dazzle Gold Marker (retiring) and used my Stampin’ Write Markers to colour the lanterns.

I’ve put together a tutorial for you for the Double Twisted Easel Card so give it a go. Double Twisted Easel Card Tutorial

Here are some wee Notecards I made too

Occasions Creative Inkers Blog Hop

Here we are again with another Blog Hop but this time concentrating on products from the new Occasions Catalogue! There are so many gorgeous things in there that I had trouble picking AGAIN. Then I had an idea for a card using Cheerful Critters and that was the choice made for me. Here are the Card and inspired by Ria’s scrapbooking efforts from our last hop,  a scrapbook page!


How cute is this! Quick and Easy and lots of fun. I love the bright colours.

And here is the Scrapbook page which I also used another new set on to create the background, Petal Potpourri. This set coordinates with so many of our other sets because of the variety of styles in it and it has a matching punch too. And you gotta love the flower Centre spot. So useful!


I used that spot stamp to jazz up the DSP background strips (from the new Painted Blooms DSP p 19) too


Using the Banner Punch I punched out a line of Banners from coordinating cardstock stamped with the 3 different animals. The wee punch fitted perfectly sideways to get the stripes dots and checks. The Banners are finished off with some Early Espresso faux stitching and buttons from the SAB pack with some Whisper White Bakers twine threaded through it.


Now pop along and see what Heather has whipped up for you
