Blossoms in Blooms

G’Day Stampers,

Thanks for dropping by today.

Last Sunday I had a friend over for the arvo & we played with a few of her new products including the gorgeous Blossoms in Bloom Bundle. I knew what I had wanted to create as soon as I saw this Bundle in the new Catalogue & this was the perfect opportunity to do so.

We swiped Coastal Cabana, Gorgeous Grape, Pacific Point & Melon Mambo Inks onto a piece of Window Sheet & sprized heaps of water over the top with our Stampin’ Spritzers. We then laid a piece of Shimmer White Cardstock over the top & sploshed it around to pick up the colour. You could also use Watercolour Paper if you wish.

Once dry, we then die cut it with the Many Layered Blossoms Dies prior to adhering to a piece of Whisper White Cardstock. A piece of Whisper White Cardstock was die cut with the outline die & adhered over the top of the die cut sploshed flowers.

This was then layered onto a piece of Gorgeous Grape Cardstock before adhering to Thick Whisper White Base Card.

The sentiment was stamped in Gorgeous Grape Ink onto Whisper White, cute back to size & shape prior to adhering to the Card Front with Stampin’ DImenisonals.

To finish it off we then tied a small bow from the Polka Dot Tulle Ribbon & adhered to the sentiment with a Mini Glue Dot.

This Bundle is now on my wish list as I have so many ideas but of course, can’t put them into action until I purchase the Bundle.

Thanks for a lovely arvo Marnie.

Back on Your Feet

Today’s card is one that was created some time ago but never got to share with you.  It is Back-on-Your-Feet-1ausing the cute little set – “Back on Your Feet“!  I’ve combined it with a Dutch Fold.  I think that is what it is called!  It has been adjusted to suit the Australian size card.

I teamed the stamp set up with the gorgeous Mosaic Mood Speciality DSP which I think sites the image.  The lovely little sloth has been coloured with Watercolour Pencils.

Hang in There

I’ve had a bit of a play with one of the 2016 SAB sets – “Honeycomb Happiness“.  This is 002ewm-blogsuch a cute little set with lots of possibilities.

I did start to case a card from the current Catalogue, but it sort of went off on its own, although I am happy with it.

I wanted my chick to look like it was poking it’s head out from behind a hole in the wall which is why I embossed the card with the Brick EF & added a circle around the chick.

I’ve used my Blender Pens to colour the Chick & Balloon Images.  I also applied Clear Wink of Stella, although you can’t see it in the photo.  It is very hard to capture a good photo of the lovely soft shimmer & sparkle it adds to your cards.

Until next time, Happy Stampin’

Card in a Box

A couple of weeks ago I had a request to create a card for someone who was in hospital.  Janet especially asked for the type I012wm-blog had given her for her birthday.  Mind you, I had to put my thinking cap on as to what one she was talking about.

After talking for a few minutes, I was told the lady loved singing, was a member of a local Musical Group, had written about 60 songs & could paly a couple of instruments.  After hearing how talented this lady was, it could only be one type of card.  One with lots of music notes, etc  & somehow include flowers.

Not only had it to be a Card in a Box, but big enough for about 20 people to sign, so I sat myself down & played around until I was happy with a template that fitted into an A4 Envelope (Aus).  There are heaps of tutorials on how to create these cards, but none the size I wanted.

For the back, I adhered a Treble Clef to a piece of Whisper White Card – enough room for everyone to sign or write a small message.

For the notes, I printed them direct onto Whisper White Card & fussy cut them 001a-wm-bloguntil I thought I had enough.  My piano keys were created by drawing lines with the Basic Black Marker, punched so many pieces of Basic Black Card using the Word Window Punch, cut off the tops & adhered to the Whisper White Card.  Not being  musical person, I had to actually check out the layout of a piano prior to adhering my keys (I did learn the piano when a kid, would you believe).

After adhering all my notes & flowers I decided it looked a little funny so I took the flowers down & cut some grass from Old Olive Card using the Fringe Scissors.  I then repositioned the flowers along the top of the piano & a couple throughout.  Much better!  The flowers 011wm-blogwere cut from Real Red & Daffodil Delight Card by running through the Big Shot using the Blossom Party Originals Die (Retired).

On the back of the card I typed “Wishing you a Speedy Recovery” & left it blank so that there would be more room for messages & signing.

I’m really happy with the card, especially the pops of Red & yellow.  Janet said the Music Group couldn’t believe it when they saw it – they loved it!  I only hope the lady that received it loved it too.

Would love to know what you think?

Until next time, Happy Stampin’

Today’s card is one we will be creating in my Volunteer Class this afternoon. 
 
As with most of Friday’s card, it has been CASEd (Copied & Shared Everything) from Pinterest.  L.O.V.E this site!  Thanks Vicki for your inspiration!
 
It does use one of my favourite retired stamp sets, but that is the beauty about my Volunteer Class – I get to play with some of my retired products again.  The card can easily be recreated with current products.

Technique Classes…

Our classes for the new year are now back up & running.  It was great to catch up with everyone, have our normal “Show & Tell” & hear how everyone did at Christmas & New Year. 
 
To showcase some of the gorgeous SAB products you can earn this year, our 1st card was created using the DSP – Sweet Sorbet.  To earn FREE products during SAB, all you have to do is append over $90.00 excluding P&H.  SAB begins Tuesday, 28 January, but as a Demonstrator I get to pre-order.
 
To start the new year, we did a little bit of “Heat Embossing“.  I like to go over techniques every now & then so that we can familiarise ourselves with them and it helps with the new crafters who have joined our group.

Feel Better Soon…

I found out that one of my ladies & friend who comes to our Technique Class spent some of the school holidays in hospital.  I created this one especially for her. 

In fact I’ve add the “Swallowtail” Stamp sitting on the shelf for some time, but just couldn’t get an idea in my head to use it.  I have seen some lovely work using this stamp, but I don’t usually use a stamp until an idea pops into my head. 

Determined to use the stamp & not really knowing what I was going to do, I grabbed the stamp, a couple of colours & played.  I’m happy with the result.  It is a very simple, easy card, but effective at the same time.

Thanks Bronwen for getting me to use this lovely stamp & hope you are feeling much, much better.
