Enjoy Your Special Day!

Dragonfly-Dreams---Close-Up

G’Day Stampers,

Today is I am sharing with you one of the cards we created in class last Friday.  I wanted to show the class that you could do more with your Embossing Folders then just emboss Cardstock.  We did a little sponging over the top of the embossed card.  It is only a little thing but it made our cards come alive!Dragonfly-Dreams---Inside

I originally created the card for one of our challenges some time ago & thought it perfect for a class as it involves a few different things including using the Blender Pen which is how we coloured our Bumble Bee from the Dragonfly Dreams Stamp Set.  We also used the Detailed Dragonfly Thinlits.

By clicking on the link below, you will be able to download your free tutorial to create your own card.

G’Day & welcome to the Stampin’ Dreams Blog Hop where this month’s theme is New Annual Sneak Peek!  Who doesn’t love seeing sneak peeks & what is coming up in the new catalogue?  I know I do!

My inspiration came from a couple of sources.  One being a challenge that our FB Group has going as well as a sample in the new catalogue.  Mind you, it wasn’t planned that way.  It is just the way things pan out sometimes.

For my card I’ve used the Bubble Over Stamp Set along with the Bottles & Bubbles Bubble-Over-4---InsideFramelits which are both returning.  I’ve teamed it up with the 2018-2020 In Colour 6″ x 6″ DSP.  Oh how I love this DSP with all the lovely dots & stripes!  I’ve also used lots of lovely In Colours – Lemon Lime Twist, Grapefruit Grove, Blueberry Bushel & Berry Burst Inks.

I hope you have enjoyed my creation today & it has inspired you to create your own.

By clicking on the link above the photo, you will be able to download a free tutorial to create your own version.  The tutorial includes a list of products used, measurements (metric & imperial) plus a tutorial for the card.

Please see the list below so that you can hop  along & see everyone’s creations. You wouldn’t want to miss any!

Until next time, Happy Stampin’

Global Stamping Friends Blog Hop

It’s been awhile but I decided to play along with the Global Stamping Friends Blog Hop.  The hop includes International Demos from all over the world.

This month they are having an extra hop to share sneak peeks from the Catalogue or to show something that is carrying over to the new catalogue.  I’ve opted to go with the Colourful Seasons Stamp Set & the matching Seasonal Layers Thinlits.  I have used the retiring Colour Theory DSP – love this stuff.

You may recognize the card as I’ve sort of case’d the one from the catalogue but changed things along the way – created a card, added a Whisper White layer onto a Crushed Curry Card Base, sponged the leaves with Crushed Curry & a Sponge Dauber as well as adding Thick Whisper White Baker’s Twine.

By clicking on the link above the photo, you will be able to download a free tutorial to create your own version.  The tutorial includes a list of products used, measurements (metric & imperial) plus a tutorial for the card.

Until next time, Happy Stampin’

Let’s Celebrate Your Day

Bunch-of-Blossoms-1---Close

I’ve been quite on my blog for a little – family stuff going on but hopefully I can find my creative side once again & get back into my regular blogging.

To begin with, I cased a sketch from a challenge, didn’t get it posted in time but thought I would share it with you anyhow.  It is a very simple card but one I hope will inspire you.  I’ve kept lots of white on the card as I wanted the colours to be the WOW factor.Bunch-of-Blossoms-1---Insid  In fact, the card could be used for a number of occasions.

I’ve used the lovely “Bunch of Blossoms” Stamp Set along with the corresponding Blossom Builder Punch.   I wanted to create something bright & happy which is why I’ve used Daffodil Delight & Old Olive Inks.  As I wanted lots of white to highlight the colours, I opted for Chocolate Chip & Whisper White CS – love these colours together.

By clicking on the link below you are able to download a free tutorial to create your own card or just use the layout.  It includes all the measurements (metric & imperial) along November-2017with a list of products.

When shopping Online, don’t forget to add November’s Host Code – JW27ZGPY.  Check out the Clearance Rack while you are there – it is always being updated.

A Note for You…

Wood-Words---Close-Up

Heya Stampers,

I’m not sure if you have noticed I’ve been missing in action the past week but fingers crossed I will be back to normal for a week or so anyhow.  I do post to my FB Page if I am not posting here so be sure to check it out.

What have I been doing?  Invitations!  My nephew is getting married in Argentina next year & I have been playing with invitations for him.  I am almost finished the English side of things & then I have to start on the Spanish side of it all.  A very long process but one that I am more than happy with.

My cards today have been created using the lovely Wood Words Stamp Set & have been created from a couple of different designs from Pinterest.   I wanted something quick, easy, simple yet elegant.  I think I have achieved that but would love to know what you think?

I’ve stamped the floral image direct onto Whisper White CS in Berry Burst Ink – love this colour towards the top of the Card & then repeated it again for the bottom part of the Card.

I stamped “A Note for You” direct onto a piece of Whisper White CS in Memento Tuxedo Black Ink, adhered a piece of Powder Pink CS top & bottom before layering over the top of the stamped flowers & trimming the edges.

The whole piece was layered onto a piece of Fresh Fig CS & then to the Base Card – Whisper White.

The star image was stamped onto scrap Whisper White CS, punched with the 1″ Circle Punch & layered onto a piece of Powder Pink CS which has been punched with the 1 1/4″ Circle Punch before being adhered to the Card Front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Until next time, Happy Stampin’

All the Best

Heya Stampers,

Today I am sharing with you a card we created in our “Cards @ Toogoom” class last week.  I wanted to try & see if I could use the Embossing Paste a different way.  Seaside-Shore---close-up

When I started, I wasn’t too sure how it was going to turn out but after some trial & error I think I  am finally happy with the outcome.  I love it when I can get multiple uses from my craft supplies.  I call this “Painting with Embossing Paste” – is that such a thing?

I have used a couple of retired In ColoursLost Lagoon & Mint Macaron but you could easily create the same card using current colours.

My sentiment is from the “Better Together” Stamp Set which I masked off the bottom part with Sticky Tape, inked the top with Calypso Coral Ink, removed the mask & then stamped directly onto Whisper White Card.

The “frame” has been created by die cutting 2 different circles using the Layering Circles Framelits & running through the Big Shot.

Why not have ago at “painting” with your Embossing Paste.  I would love to see what you come up with.

Until next time, Happy Stampin’

Kylie’s International Blog Highlights

It is that time again where I am once again playing along with Kylie’s International Blog Highlights which is so much fun.  This month our theme is Gratitude inspired by Thailand!

What is Kylie’s International Highlights?   It is where Demonstrators from all around the world take part in a monthly Blog Highlight.  It’s a great way to get to know other Demonstrators & see projects using current Stampin’ Up!® product.  Each month Kylie has a different theme so we get to play with different product.

Vote for Me HereWhat is so different about this Blog Highlight?  YOU get to vote for your top 5 favourites.  The top ten will then get to take part in an international blog hop with Kylie & other talented successful demonstrators.

What do I do?  All you have to do is click on the “Vote for Me” photo at the side or head on over to Kylie’s Blog, click on the heart in the top right hand side of the picture.

Can I leave comments?  Sure you can.  Once you have voted, click on any picture & comment on those that you really love.  You know how bloggers love to read your comments.

My card was one I had started playing with a couple of weeks ago & has been sitting on my desk in bits & pieces for a couple of weeks now.  Instead of starting from scratch I challenged myself to use what I had started so I sat down & then bang, it hit me.  The Wood-Words---close-upflowers from the “Wood Words” Stamp Set were perfect as they remind me of Thailand.  The colours I didn’t have to change at all as I had gone with Berry Burst & Lemon Lime Twist Inks & Card & I think they are the perfect colours……

I do hope all the Demonstrators who have earned the Thailand Incentive Trip are enjoying themselves as it is such a lovely country.

There is a free tutorial on how I created my card by clicking on the link below.  It gives you all the product used plus the measurements (metric & imperial).

Don’t forget to head on over to Kylie’s Blog to check out all the lovely cards that have been created & to vote for your favourites.  I’m #17 (just in case you are looking).

Until next time, Happy Stampin’

Happy Anniversary

I was asked to create a card for a special 40th Anniversary so the first stamp set that 20170630_125601blog-insidepopped into my mind was the Number of Years including the matching the “Large Number” Framelits along with the Bloomin’ Heart Thinlits.  Of course being the 40th I had to use the “Red Glimmer Paper”. 

This was perfect timing as I am a member of “Joy of Sets (SU!)” FB Group & they are having their first challenge this month.  The challenge is “RUBY – let’s see red on your cards“.

Being for a very special occasion, I thought a 5” square card would be nice.

I die cut the heart into a piece of Thick Whisper White Card using the Blooming Heart Thinlits & running through the Big Shot.  A piece of the Red Glimmer Paper was then adhered behind the cut out shape.  I also die cut a number of flowers scraps of the Red Glimmer Paper & Thick Whisper White Card for later on.  I wasn’t too sure which ones I was going to use.

The die cut heart was inlaid back into the shape using the Fine-Tip Glue Pen before layering onto the Base Card – Thick Whisper White.

I die cut the “4” & “0” from the Red Glimmer Paper using the Large Number Framelits by running through the Big Shot.  I repeated it twice but using Thick Whisper White Card as I wanted the numbers to pop out a little.  The die cut numbers were layered onto each 20170630_125538blog (2)other before finally adhering to the Card Front.

After settling on the Whisper White die cut flowers, these were adhered to heart with the Fine-Tip Glue Pen.

I stamped “Happy” onto scrap Whisper White in Memento Tuxedo Black Ink, punched it with the Classic Label Punch, cut the left side straight & adhered to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  The “th” was stamped onto scrap Whisper White in Memento Tuxedo Black Ink, cut back to size & a Banner Shape into the left hand side before being adhered to the top of the “o”.

The Banner image was stamped onto Whisper White Card in Memento Tuxedo Black Ink as was the “Anniversary“, fussy cut & adhered to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

To complete the card, Pearls Basic Jewels were applied to the centre of the flowers & randomly scattered around the card front.

For the inside & the envelopes, I used the remainder of the die cut Whisper White flowers along with the Red Glimmer flowers.

I do hope you like my card today, I know the lovely couple who received it did!

Until next time, Happy Stampin’

You’re Sublime

Last week I shared with you a card I had created using the cute little Stamp Set – You’re Sublime.  Well, today I have another to share with you, but this time I’ve played with the frog from the same set.  I don’t know what it is about this set, but I love creating with it.  Is it the little creatures & their faces or is it the shapes……

Anyhow, my card went off in the mail last Monday.  Fingers crossed they like it too.

20170507_120148-(2)blog

As I’ve teamed the set with the bright & happy “Festive Birthday” DSP, I wanted the colours to be the same – bright & happy.  I used my Blender Pen to colour the frog & the water, but in saying that, I didn’t want it to be coloured nice & smooth, so I very roughly coloured both using Emerald Envy for the frog & Tempting Turquoise for the water.  It’s eyes are Daffodil Delight & the spots are Melon Mambo.

If you click on the link above the photo (below), you will be able to download a free tutorial for your own use.

Until next time, Happy Stampin’
