I am sharing with you a card we created sometime ago in one of our Friday classes using the Stamparatus. The class was actually divided into 2 groups with each group creating a different card. At the end of the class both groups had created the 2 cards.
Being Day 9, I get to share with you another line from the Aussie version of the “12 Days of Christmas”.
On the ninth day of Christmas, my true love gave to me –
A Cockie in a Bottlebrush Tree,
2 flying Doctors,
3 Drovers watching
4 working dogs
5 golden Ducks
6 Boomers hopping
7 Silos filling
8 Ladies baking
9 Nippers racing…”
My card is one we created in our class on Friday. I started to case the sample on Page 18 of the Holiday Catalogue, but as usual it sort of went off on its own, but the catalogues are always a great way to start.
By clicking on the link below, you will be able to download a free tutorial to create your own card & holder. The tutorial includes both the products used & the measurements (metric & imperial). Yes, Stampin’ Up! Demos are able to use the tutorials for classes.
Today’s card is another we created in our Cards @ Toogoomclass a couple of weeks ago. You can see the 1st card here. Both cards use the Emboss Resist Technique which you can find Technique Tutorialshere.
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.
Today I am taking part in an Anniversary Blog Hop happening over at Global Stamping Friendswhich is a group of Demonstrators from all around the world. We are celebrating 12 months since the group started & boy has it grown!
For the special Anniversary Hop our theme is ANNIVERSARY of course!
I was so undecided as to what I was going to use & how to create my card that I ended up totally confused, so I decided to keep it simple with lots of white.
The past week or so I have been experimenting with my inks & stamps, trying new ways of stamping & colouring. My image was inspired by a card sitting on my desk which I will share with you sometime in the future once it has been finished.
My image is from the “Floral Phrases” Stamp Set which was inked using Pink Pirouette & Pear Pizzazz Stampin’ Write Markers & stamped direct onto a piece of Whisper White CS. I then grabbed my Flirty Flamingo Stampin’ Write Marker, scribbled colour onto a Block & picking up small amounts of colour at a time with a Blender Pen, coloured over areas of the Pink Pirouette. I repeated the same technique for the leaves using Wild Wasabi Ink. I think it brings the flower to life.
The flower was die cut with the oval shape from the Stitched Shape Framelits by running through the Big Shot. As I wanted my card to be mostly all white, I decided to add a small scallop Whisper White frame behind the oval so I die cut another piece of Whisper White CS using the Layering Ovals Framelits & running through the Big Shot. This piece was adhered to the stamped oval.
I embossed a piece of Whisper White CS with the Softly Falling EF before layering onto the Base Card – Flirty Flamingo. The oval shape was adhered to the Card Front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
The sentiment is from the “Beautiful Bouquet” Stamp Set. I thought it suited the card & blog hop perfectly. It was stamped onto scrap Whisper White CS in Flirty Flamingo, cut each end into a Banner Shape & adhered to the bottom of the flower with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
I do hope you have enjoyed my card. Be sure to check out all the other wonderful creations joining the blog hop.
