Decorative Masks

G’Day Stampers,

Thanks for dropping by today.

I’ve been playing with our Decorative Masks in the past few weeks prepping for a Technique Class.  After creating my background, I was sort of stuck for ideas, so Pinterest to the rescue.  Thank you so much for your inspiration.  Would you believe the colours were the same as I had selected for my sponging!!!!!

I haven’t changed anything except for the sentiment which is from the Peaceful Moments Stamp Set.

Don’t forget to download the tutorial by clicking on the link below.  It includes all Measurements – imperial & metric plus a list of products used to create this card.

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.

To see more inspiration, be sure to visit all the other blogs in the hop – click on the Next arrow or the links below the photo.

Until next time, Happy Stampin’

Half Full

Half-Full-1---Close-Up

G’Day Stampers,

My card today is one we are creating in Cards @ Toogoom today using the Half Full Stamp Set which is available in the 2017 Holiday Catalogue.  It took me a little time to grab this one as I wasn’t too sure if I would like it or not BUT I LOVE it!  In fact I know quite a few ladies that would just love this set & card…..  Fingers crossed the ladies today do too.

I actually took my inspiration from a card I saw on Pinterest but made it my own, sortHalf-Full-1---Inside of!  Thank you so much Amanda for your inspiration.

The Whisper White is actually Shimmery White & has been embossed using the Holly EF before being layered onto a piece of Pool Party CS & then to the Base Card – Sahara Sand.  As I am a lover of non-traditional colours for Christmas, I am actually loving these colours together & may have to play more with them.  Pink Pirouette & Sahara Sand also spring to mind.

Until next time, Happy Stampin’

283. Merry Christmas – Half Full

Half-Full-1

Merry & Bright

Colourful-Seasons---Close-U

Today’s card is another we created in our Cards @ Toogoom class a couple of weeks ago.  You can see the 1st card here.  Both cards use the Emboss Resist Technique which you can find Technique Tutorials here.

For some reason I love Christmas baubles.  Don’t know why, but I especially love that they can come in all sizes & colours.  I don’t have a bauble set so I set about creating some of my own.

We used the Colorful Seasons Stamp Set to create our card by randomly stamping the Colourful-Seasons---Insidesnowflake images onto a piece of Whisper White CS, using the Emboss Resist Technique & punching out 3 different size circles.

To hang the baubles we die cut a “branch” from the Seasonal Layers Thinlits, & Silver Foil before being attaching Silver Metallic Thread.  The Whisper White background has been embossed using the Softly Falling EF & then layered onto a piece of Dapper Denim CS.

Until next time, Happy Stampin’

G’Day Stampers,

It is Tuesday & that means a new technique for you to download & play with.  Remember, if you don’t have the product I’ve used on my card, use what you have on hand.  This week we are highlighting Emboss Resist.

This is one of the cards we created last Friday in our class.  I am happy to say the ladies loved it.  They also enjoyed playing with the technique too…..  I think in future I am going to have to take photos as everyone’ cards turned out so different which is fantastic.

These techniques appear on my blog every 2nd & 4th Tuesday of the month, along Technique-Layoutwith instructions for a card using the technique.  The Technique Tutorial is available for download by clicking on the Free Technique Tutorials Page, file in a folder & keep on hand to use or to refer back to at a later date.

Yes, SU! Demos are able to use them for your classes, workshops & demonstrations.  It just means that all the work is done for you, except of course your samples.

After a couple of requests, there are now 3 options available for you to choose from – .  Basic-Sponging---4-per-page

Option 1 – Detailed tutorial in the full page pocket & the tips & tutorial in the 2 pocket page.

Option 2 – Shorter tutorial & sample side by side using the 4 pocket page.  There is also a sheet of Products used plus Measurements (Metric & Imperial) that you are able to print & tuck behind your tutorial if you wish.

Option 3 – A4 size which fits into a standard A4 folder.  Yes, it includes all the Product used plus Measurement (Metric & Imperial)

You can find the Technique Tutorials by clicking on the Technique Tutorials Page.

277. Colorful Seasons – Happy Birthday

Colourful-Seasons---Birthda

 

Basic Sponging meets…

… the beach & the Hometown Greetings Edgelits.

Hearts-Come-Home---Close-Up

Our card today is one we created in our class a couple of weeks ago.  You may have seen the 1st one I shared with you already.   I love it when I can get multiple uses from my Stamps & Dies & this is just one of those occasions where I am doing a happy dance & created Beach Huts.  You can see another card I created using the same Edgelits here.

In our classes we have started on Techniques & the ladies are loving them.  I have a list that they would like to try out so that saves me trying to think of new ones to teach.

Don’t forget you are able to download the Technique Tutorials for FREE by clicking on the Free Techniques Tutorials Page.  Yes, SU! Demos are able to use them for their classes too.  The page will be updated every 2 weeks with new techniques.

272. Celebrate – Hometown Greetings Edgelits

Hearts-Come-Home---Beach

Happy Retirement

Hometown-Greetings---Close-

G’Day Stampers,

Once again I’ve been playing with the Hometown Greetings Edgelits Dies & have been wanting to use them other than for Christmas.  We created 2 cards in our class on Friday using the same Dies but both very different which I will share with you later on in the week.

For my card today, I cut 3 of the houses from Whisper White CS using the smaller Die & then cut them back to the size & shape I wanted before colouring with the Watercolour Pencils so that they looked like beach huts.

For my scene, I masked off a circle for the sun punched using the 1/2” Circle Punch & then coloured with the Watercolour Pencils.  Once the mask was removed I lightly coloured the sun with the Daffodil Delight Pencil & carried it through onto the ocean.  The sun was highlighted with the Clear Wink of Stella.

A circle has been cut into a piece of Whisper White CS overlapping on the left hand side of the Card using the Layering Circles Framelits.

The chair is from Colourful Seasons (available in a Bundle) & has been stamped direct onto the same Whisper White in Bermuda Bay & the seat in Crumb Cake Inks.  The drink is in Pumpkin Pie.

The branch has been stamped in Crumb Cake while the flowers are in Daffodil Delight.  To pop them a little more, I then added Pumpkin Pie to the centres & blended with the Blender Pen.

The piece of scenery was then adhered behind the stamped Whisper white & trimmed from the left hand side before layering onto a piece of Crumb Cake CS & then to the Base Card – Bermuda Bay.  The beach huts were then adhered in place with Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals.

The sentiment is from Teeny Tiny Sentiments & stamped direct onto the Whisper White in Memento Tuxedo Black.  To finish the card I randomly adhered Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the front & flower centres.

Why not give it ago & check out your stamps & Dies with new eyes.

Until next time, Happy Stampin’
