Simple card with Stampin’ Up! markers

By: Bussakorn Mpelasoka, Stampin’ Up! ® Independent Demonstrator, Canberra

I CASE this card, with a little twist, from the Sale-a-Bration catalogue. The 2014 Sale-a-Bration is starting after two more sleeps, so as the mini catalogue, yeah!

The only markers I have so far are the 2013-14 in-colours. I just realised (after making this card) that markers are actually a useful tool to have.

Steps for this card:
– draw coloured lines (free hand & anyhow) on white paper, using flexible brush tip of SU markers.
– stamp sentiment in bake brown sugar on white paper – for this card I used a birthday stamp from ‘Delightful Dozen’ stamp set
– thread Baker’s twine through holes on the sentiment piece, tie a ribbon
– add a little flower, made using ‘Simply Pressed Clay’ and ‘Simply Pressed Clay Molds’ (paint with strawberry slush ink)
– add flower stem and leaves, using the 5mm fine tip of the pistachio pudding marker
and…the card is done!

Draw coloured lines also on the envelope flap to match with the card.

Dresser baby card

By: Bussakorn Mpelasoka, Stampin’ Up! ® Independent Demonstrator, Canberra

Today’s card is for my friend in Margaret River, who has just got a baby girl.

Dresser baby card 1

I was so inspired by many dresser baby cards, both for boys & girls, I saw on Pinterest. Now is an opportunity for me to make one. I don’t know whose original idea it is, the credit is for whoever came up with this brilliant idea and all those who made the cards that inspired me.

The card is in Pink Pirouette, little characters are from the retired ‘Spring Samplers’ stamp set and dresses were made using the ‘Owl’ punch. I don’t have the ‘Decorative Label’ punch so I used ‘Label Collection’ framelits for the legs of the dresser. I used ‘candy dots’ for the drawers’ knobs, had to mix the colours as I don’t enough in the same colour.

Angel wall hanging & card

By: Bussakorn Mpelasoka, Stampin’ Up! ® Independent Demonstrator, Canberra

I made this ‘angel’ wall hanging (and card) as a Christmas gift for a dear friend, Deb Fearns. Since I joined Stampin’ Up! about a year ago, Deb has been very supportive to me. Visit Deb’s blog and I can guarantee that you will be inspired by her amazing work of art.

Angel card & wall hanging

For the wall hanging, I used the ‘Candy Cane Christmas’ fabric, which is unfortunately no longer available.

Angel wall hanging 1

The angel pattern is from one of a few ‘Art to Heart’ (by Nancy Halvorsen) books I have. Nancy created a beautiful table topper using 16 angels.

Since I have very little time I decided to make a small wall hanging using just one angel. I sew the writing ‘bless this home’ by hand, but use sewing machine for the rest.

I used the ‘Season of Style’ DSP for the matching card. I adjusted the angel’s size just a little to fit the standard card and add a tiny strip of silver glitter paper as a halo.

Dress up stationary

By: Bussakorn Mpelasoka, Stampin’ Up! ® Independent Demonstrator, Canberra

I have two super quick and easy projects to share.

The first one is a travel plan notepad I made for my husband.

Dad's travel plan 1

We have a trip of two and a half months coming up, to a few countries in Asia, Europe, Africa and Middle East. This will require lots of planning and organising. My husband often writes things on pieces of paper and then loses (or can’t find) most of them. This should help him keep all checklists, notes, etc. together in one place.

Dad's travel plan 4

I used the left over retired DSP I have in my stash, ‘Postage Due’ stamp set and ‘Petite Curly Label’ punch.

Dad's travel plan 3

The second project is just my work diary. Many of us have exactly the same diary (same brand, colour, size), so I dress mine up a little to look a bit different. I like to use pretty stationary since I was young.

I used the Silhouette Cameo to cut the butterflies and flowers.

Gift card holder etc

By: Bussakorn Mpelasoka, Stampin’ Up! ® Independent Demonstrator, Canberra

Life was a bit hectic for me during the past few months. I made a gift card holder for my daughter for Christmas on the night of Christmas Eve! I ran out of ideas that night so I look around the works created by others and chose to CASE the one Tania made.

This is what I made.

Below is Tania’s product – so bright and so beautiful! I didn’t want to change a thing, but because I don’t have a few tools/materials that Tania used so I was forced to modify it a little, using what I have.

Here is a box of Ferrero Roche I made.

I wrapped a ‘Dream, then Do’ journal (got from Kikki) for my daughter and added a bow I made using the envelope punch board, which I learnt from Jenny
Day
. It is amazing how clever and creative many SU demonstrators are, and they share their creativity so willingly. I am glad I am a part of the SU family.

My daughter wanted a certain nutrition book, unfortunately the book only arrived yesterday!

Little notepad covers

By: Bussakorn Mpelasoka, Stampin’ Up! ® Independent Demonstrator, Canberra

I finally got time yesterday so I crafted all day, starting with sewing in the morning and paper crafting in the afternoon… and evening… and night!

Here are the two notepad covers I made for my friend’s mum.

Apple notepad cover Mini-notead folder 1

I used the ‘Cheerful Treat’ DSP, which I got from the clearance rack a few days ago for the bigger notepad. Apple stamps are from the retired ‘Perfectly Preserved’ stamp set. I don’t know the name of the smiley fruits embossing folder, it is one of the Cuttlebug folders I have.

I did a quick decoration on the back as well.

Apple notepad cover 3

I thought it is cute, so I made a few more for friends.

My friend’s mum usually uses mini notepads. I made a folder for the mini notepad for her so she can keep re-using the same folder.

Mini-notead folder 4 Mini-notead folder 5

I used some of the 2013-14 DSP stacks and ‘Pansy’ and ‘Boho Blossom’ punches to decorate the ‘Raspberry Ripple’ folder. Again I used one of the Cuttlebug embossing folders (because they are quite large).

Mini-notead folder 2 Mini-notead folder 3

I also made some projects for my Avid_Inkers friends yesterday, which I will post/deliver them tomorrow. I will post those projects on my blog next time.
