Beautiful Peacock

Beautiful-Peacock-1---Close

With Sale-A-Bration drawing to a close in the next week – 31 March, I thought I had better start sharing with you some of the cards we’ve been creating in our classes.

Today is such a card using the Beautiful Peacock Stamp Set.  It is a gorgeous set, especially as we have a family of them wandering around the streets where I live paying visits toBeautiful-Peacock-1---Insid different people.  They will sometimes come up to my door if I’m not out the front wanting to say hello & show off their babies.

I started off with a case of the sample in the Catalogue, but as usual it sort of took a turn & went off on it’s own.  But hey that is good, isn’t it?

The colours I’ve used are Emerald Envy & Night of Navy.  Teamed with Whisper White, Even with layers I think it is fresh & clean card.

Grab your free tutorial by clicking on the link below.  It includes a list of products, measurements (metric & imperial) plus the instructions.

This lovely set could be yours for free when you spend $90.00 but only while Sale-A-Bration is going.

Until next time, Happy Stampin’

Kylie’s International Blog Highlights

G’Day Stampers,

Today I am once again taking part in Kylie’s International Blog Highlights where this month it is all about “LOVE”.  Thank you so much for everyone who voted for me last month.  It was very much appreciated.Lovely-Words---Inside

Not sure of 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.

What 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 Vote for Me Heretalented 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.

I wanted to challenge myself to creating with older product & not something from SAB or the Occasions Catalogue.  I think I have done so except for the Brushos.  I really have to stop myself from using these all the time.  Although in saying that I’ve only used the Gamboge & Yellow on my card today.  Mind you, it is nothing what I started out to create but I’m happy with it especially the colours.

Lovely-Words---Close-UpDon’t forget to pop on over to check out all the other lovely creations by visiting Kylie’s Blog.  While there, be sure to vote for your 5 favourites.

Kylie’s International Top Ten February Winners Blog Hop

 

I was one of the lucky ones who made it to the top ten in Kylie’s International Blog Hop last month with this card using the Petal Palette.  Because of your vote, I get to hop along with 9 other lucky Demos.  Thank you to everyone who voted for me.  It is very much appreciated.

Once again our theme is “Sale-a-Bration and Occasions Catalogue Product”..

While creating this card for the hop, it suddenly occurred to me that it could go in the Springtime-Foil-DSP---Flowemail today for a friend who is celebrating her birthday.

I am loving the Springtime Foils Specialty DSP from the SAB 2nd release & available while stocks last.  It is perfect for colouring, fussy cutting, backgrounds & just about everything else you can think of.

I’ve coloured a couple of the flowers from the DSP with Stampin’ Blends, fussy cut & adhered to the card front.  The silver bling is actually Rhinestone Basic Jewels covered with VersaMark & heat set with Silver Emboss Powder.  I wanted something a little different & to match in with this gorgeous paper.

If you click on the link above the card, you will be able to download your free tutorial to create your own card.  It includes a list of products used, measurements (metric & imperial) plus the instructions..

Until next time, Happy Stampin’

Bubble-Over-3---Close-Up

I love it when Stampin’ Up! bring out fantastic products especially Bundles which is what I have used for my card today.  In fact it is one of our cards we created a couple of weeks ago in our Creative Cards Class.  The Bubbles Over Bundle is from the 2018 Occasions Catalogue & includes the Bubble Over Stamp Set & the Bottles & Bubbles Framelits.

We’ve water washed the background using Shimmery White CS.  I love the washed out Bubble-Over-3---Insidebackgrounds for my cards.  It is an easy way to create easy & simple ways to give a bit of a wow to your cards.  In fact, you can find a free tutorial for this Technique by clicking on the Free Technique Tutorials & download a choice of 3 including a tutorial for a card.

Yes, if you are a SU! Demo, then you 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.

Sheltering-Tree---Brushos-C

Today is the day you have all been waiting for!  Sale-A-Bration (ends 31 March 2018) & the 2018 Occasions Catalogue start today. This means that for every $90 AUD you spend, you get to choose product for free from the SAB Brochure.

I’ve been busy over the break & have planned heaps of classes using lots of lovely new product & lots of lovely techniques.  In the next couple of days, I will be posting all the classes, dates, times, etc.

Now, I am not sure if you have heard of the Brushos but these are my favourite from the 2018 Occasions Catalogue.  I just can’t get enough of them.  Each time I think I’ve played enough a new idea pops into my mind, so keep your eye out for more in the next coming weeks.

Today’s card has been created from my very first play with this fun product.  I didn’t want to toss it out once finished even though I thought it didn’t look any good, but I’m happy with the final result.  I suppose you could call it Emboss Resist with Brushos.

If you don’t have a Demonstrator & would like a copy of both the 2018 Occasions Catalogue & SAB Brochure, please do not hesitate in contacting me.  You can also click on the Catalogues on the right hand side.

Day 3 of showcasing our class Christmas Cards.

If you saw my post on Monday, I shared with you one of the cards we created in our Creative Cards Class showcasing the gorgeous Year of Cheer Specialty DSP.  Grab it while you are able as it is one of the items retiring from the 2017 Holiday Catalogue.

Once again, I’ve used the Peace This Christmas Stamp Set but heat embossed it with the Silver Emboss Powder.Year-of-Cheer-1---Inside

To compliment the lovely DSP & embossing,  we’ve used touches of Silver Foil both to the card front & to the inside of the card.

The snowflake on the front of the card is from Seasonal Layers Thinlits Die & has been die cut from Silver Foil.

To pick up the silver in the DSP, I’ve layered onto a piece of Smokey Slate CS & then to the Base Card – Thick Whisper White.

To finish off the card I scattered Rhinestone Basic Jewels around the embossed sentiment.

Until next time, Happy Stampin’

Good Morning Stampers,

Over the next 2 weeks I will be sharing with you the Christmas Cards we have been creating in our classes, all very different but all with a bit of a wow.  In fact, the ladies are loving them & keep coming back so that must be a good thing, right?

Today’s card is one I actually cased from Pinterest to get my creative juices flowing usingYear-of-Cheer---Inside the gorgeous Year of Cheer Speciality DSP..  Thank you to Connie for your inspiration.  Of course I’ve put my own spin on it.

The sentiment is from the Peace This Christmas Stamp Set.  One which I think has been a little overlooked this year.  It is so easy to do with all the new product to play with.

It has been stamped in VersaMark & then heat embossed using the Copper Emboss Powder.  I’ve randomly scattered a couple of the lovely White Perfect Accents to complete the card.

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.
