Birthday Girl

When I created my card I am sharing with you today, all the items were current.  In fact, it 3  Juneis one of the cards created for our Pretty Pattern Papers which sees the release of the new Tutorial tomorrow, so be sure to head on back to grab your tutorial.

For my card I used the “Go Wild” DSP Stack (retired) to create my bags.  These were adhered to 3 separate pieces of Melon Mambo Card, a piece of Silver Cording Trim (retired) was used for the hands & pieces of Tissue adhere to the top of each bag.

I embossed a piece of Whisper White with the Boho Chic Embossing Folder before layering onto a piece of Melon Mambo before layering onto the Base Card – Daffodil Delight.

The greeting from SAB 2016 “Hello” Stamp Set was stamped onto Whisper White in Melon Mambo, cut into shape before layering onto a piece of Basic Black & then across the card front.  The Bags were adhered to the Card with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

To finish the card I cut 3 small flowers from the “Botanical Builder” Framelits 1 x Whisper White, 1 x Daffodil Delight & 1 x Melon Mambo, adhered them to each bag & popped a small Rhinestone to the centre of each to finish the card.

A very simple card but one that shows you how to use those little pieces of DSP lying around but you don’t want to toss out.

Until tomorrow, Happy Stampin’

Pretty Pattern Papers

As our next lot of “Pretty Pattern Papers ” Tutorial is coming up this Saturday, I thought I would share with you a card created from one of the sketches.

Pretty Pattern Papers is all about using that stash of DSP you have hiding in the back of your cupboard or sitting on your shelves just waiting to be used but your afraid to cut into it.

Let’s face it, we all have heaps of DSP in our stash just waiting to be used.  Some of us are 1.2  Aprilnot sure how to use it, but we love it!  Others of us just don’t want to cut into it, we love it too much!  The result – even though we keep buying it because it is just so pretty & we have to have it, it goes into that pile in the cupboard for a “rainy day”, never to be used or to see the light of day!

Well, Pretty Pattern Papers is what will help you to use that DSP Stash.  In the middle of each month, we release Pretty Pattern Papers  showcasing a sketch & 3 cards created from the sketch, all using your one lot of DSP.   The tutorial includes Measurements – Imperil & Metric plus Measurements for all 3 cards.  The sketches are able to be used over & over.

My card uses product from this year’s SAB – Wildflower Fields – BUT you are able to change it out with one of the new DSP from the current catalogue.  In fact, if you check back in a couple of days, you will see the same card created with different Papers.

For more information, be sure to check out our Pretty Pattern Papers Page.

Until next time, Happy Stampin’

Sweet 16

G’day Stampers,

I’ve just had my new lounge suite delivered – very exciting as I now have something to sit on, but still have to unpack the lounge room boxes.

I saw today’s card on Pinterest some time ago & it just stayed in my mind for some reason.  It could be the colours or it could of been the pleats, but anyhow I loved it.  It was also a good excuse to use up some of my DSP sitting in boxes (yep, not unpacked as yet) & to remind you of our Pretty Pattern Papers .  Thank you for your inspiration.

I’ve used the “Cherry on Top” DSP which was in the Occasions Catalogue, now retired, but you could change it out to a current DSP or even what you have in your “stash”.

Included in the Free Tutorial below, is a template showing you how I did my pleat.  Click on the link to download your Tutorial.

Until next time, Happy Stampin’

Happy Birthday To You

Today’s post is sort of a case from another I shared 2months ago.  It is also to remind youApril-TT that Technique Treats this month is Sponging & Heat Embossing which we’ve paired up with “Lovey as a Tree“.  Two very easy techniques but 2 with a very big WOW!

I’ve used 2 colours that I would not normally put together & are way out of my comfort zone, but you know what – I am loving them.  Just a small reminder that Hello Honey is one of the In-Colours that will be retiring at the end of the month along with Timeless Textures Stamp Set from the 2016 Occasions Catalogue.  I will be honest with you as I am not a big fan of Hello Honey but each time I use it, especially with Black, I love it!

Anyhow, I would love to hear what you think about my card today.  Don’t forget to click on the link below to grab your free tutorial to create your own card.

Until next time, Happy Stampin’

A Little Thanks

Today is the last day of 2016 SAB!  Yep, it is over for another year!  I do hope you enjoyed receiving your free products during SAB!  I’m not sure what was my favourite but if I was pushed, I think I would have to steer towards “Sky is the Limit”  What was your favourite?

As a way of saying a huge Thank You to everyone who took advantage of 2016 SAB I created these little Thank You Cards.  You may think it looks familiar & yep it does.  I’ve cased it from Page 15 of the SAB Catalogue.  I’ve added my own small spin onto it.

Be sure to keep an eye on the post Ladies!

Card #2

Our card tody is the 2nd card created at our Technique Class a couple of Sundays ago.

We used the lovely “Sky is the Limit” which was available for a limited time during SAB 2016.   Along with this stamp set we used “Timeless Texture” on our card, a little bit of Heat Embossing, coloured with our Aqua Painters & then turned it into a Shaker Card.  These cards are very addictive.

Until next time, Happy Stampin’

You are made of Wonderful

Last month Bronwen brought in a yummy Pistachio cake she had made for our Technique 002wmm-blogClass.  I am a lover of Pistachios so this suited me down to the ground.  Thanks so much Bron.  We all very much appreciated it, but even more appreciated would have been her girls as she managed to take some home with her.

I thought I would send her off a small card to show my appreciation, so created a very easy card using the limited “Perfectly ArtisticDSP which was in the 2016 SAB.  I teamed it up with the “Picture Perfect” Stamp Set from the 2016 Occasions Catalogue.

Don’t forget, you only 2 weeks to earn & grab FREE items from the 2016 SAB.  This ends 31 March 2016.

My “Claytons” Shaker Card

When is a Shaker Card not a Shaker Card?  When it’s one I created & forgot to add my glitter & bling!!!!!  It wasn’t until I got it together that I realised I had forgotten to add all my shaker bits.

I’ve used the FREE “Widlflower Fields” DSP which is available through SAB.  The Scalloped Edge has been created using the Scallop Edge Framelit (Retired).  The window was created using the Word Bubbles Framelits (Retired).  Any of which can easily be substituted for different Framelits, Dies or Punches & Ribbon.
