You’re sublime shaker frame card

Bussakorn Mpelasoka: Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator, Canberra

I have another quick shaker frame card to share.

You're sublime card 1b

I first stamped a submarine (from You’re Sublime stamp set, Annual Catalogue, page 45) on watercolour paper, water-painted outside the submarine using aqua painter brush, stamped the waves, and coloured the submarine, fish and little heart bubbles. I used Project Life page protector as a pocket for the shaker frame.

Easter Lamb treat bag/box

Bussakorn Mpelasoka: Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator, Canberra

I have a very quick post to share these simple Easter treat bags/boxes. While Easter is still about two months away, I just can’t wait to play with this cute Easter Lamb stamp (Occasions Catalogue, page 24).

The Whisper White one is the simplest.

I coloured this little lamb with white gel pen.

We can put Easter eggs straight into the box inside the bag OR first put the eggs in a cellophane bag and then place the cellophane bag in the box.

I embossed the back with Decorative Dots embossing folder.

Love U card

Bussakorn Mpelasoka: Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator, Canberra

I have made another Valentine card, a more adult looking one.

Love U card e

I made a pleated heart from Real Red DSP as a focal point of the card and added die-cut letters to spell the word ‘love u’, using Little Letters thinlits dies (Annual Catalogue, page 172) and Typeset Alphabet BigZ (retired).

Love U card a

Love U card b

I decided to make the red heart stand out more by adding flowers and little hearts. The card is huge (4 ½” x 8”), which is perfect for someone who has a big heart and is special to me (my hubby!). I made an envelope using Perfectly Artistic DSP (Sale-A-Bration, page 19).

Mini album – Japan

Bussakorn Mpelasoka: Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator, Canberra

I made this album for my work trip to Japan last October. I was only in Tokyo and took only a few photos during this trip so the album is really…really mini.

Mini album_Japan a

I used Timeless Elegance DSP and Very Vanilla cardstock from Stampin’ Up! and Paper Lover’s Book from Kikki K throughout this album. The word Japan on the cover is die-cut using Stampin’ Up! Little Letters thinlits dies in Soft Sky and Basic Grey.

I find adding tiny envelopes is a good way to increase space to accommodate more photos and notes.

Made with Love – Valentine card

Bussakorn Mpelasoka: Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator, Canberra

I am in the mood of making a love theme card as Valentine’s Day is around the corner. The only thing I had in mind before I started making this card was having some hearts partially die-cut, the rest I just went with the flow.

Made with Love Valentine card 1a

I used the heart die that comes with Mini Treat Bag thinlits dies (Annual Catalogue, page 171). The bunny, deer and kitten stamps are from Made with Love stamp set (Annual Catalogue, page 37). I added the heart smoke trail at the bottom of the card using a stamp from Sky is the Limit stamp set (sale-a-bration, page 16).

Loads of thanks

Bussakorn Mpelasoka: Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator, Canberra

Today I have a thank you card and gift box to share. I mixed and (tried to) matched a few different products for these two projects.

Loads of thanks 1a

For the card, I used a stamp from You’re Sublime stamp set (Annual Catalogue), Birthday Bouquet DSP (Occasions Catalogue) and Wild Flower Fields DSP (sale-a-bration). I used Dots stencil as a template to apply embossing paste on the Birthday Bouquet DSP.

Loads of thanks 1b

Loads of thanks 1c

For the gift box, I used Wild Flower Fields DSP (sale-a-bration) and added three flowers using Botanical Blooms stamp set and Botanical Builder framelits dies. The gift box is made out of 4 1/8” x 10 1/2″ cardstock; along 4 1/8” score at 1/2″ and 2 7/8”; and along 10 1/2″ score at 1/2″, 3”, 5 1/2″ and 8”. Connie Stewart made a video tutorial for this type/shape of gift box and her bag is so sweet. You can check her tutorial here.

Number of Years – copy cat

Bussakorn Mpelasoka: Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator, Canberra

When I looked through the Occasions catalogue, the Number of Years stamp set and its matching dies didn’t catch my eyes so I didn’t order them. After seeing beautiful cards Lynn, my dear friend and SU upline, made from this bundle and the Birthday Bouquet DSP I fell in love with them right away. As a hobby demonstrator with few and irregular customers I can’t afford to buy everything I like. I did order the DSP though (can’t resist). As I love the cards Lynn made very much I tried to CAS it using what I have.

Number of Years_copy cat 1a

Number of Years_copy cat 1b

For stamps, I used What I Love (leaves and flowers), Birthday Blooms and Cottage Greetings (sentiment). For numbers, I used Typeset Alphabet BigZ (retired).

Number of Years_copy cat 1c

Number of Years_copy cat 1d

I die cut numbers 2 and 4 using the Typeset Alphabet BigZ and the scrap of leftover rubber from other rubber stamp sets. I was amazed the BigZ could cut rubber easily like butter! I used these ‘made my own’ stamps for the envelope.
