Pretty Pattern Papers – October

G’day Stampers,

Today is the launch of our new “Pretty Pattern Papers” Tutorials.  This month we are getting ready for Christmas.

We’ve played with the lovely “This Christmas” Speciality DSP, Page 27 (Ideas) & Page 172 of the Annual Catalogue.  Along with the DSP, we’ve used lots of lovely Christmas Stamps – “Holly Berry Happiness Bundle” from the 2016 Holiday Catalogue, “Peace This Christmas” which coordinates with the DSP & “Reason for the Season“.

Don’t forget, in the Tutorial, you receive a Sketch, List of Products, Measurements (Metric & Imperial) & Instructions.  It is a way to get you to use up that lovely stash of Paper you have sitting in your cupboard. This is the perfect time to make a start on your Christmas Cards.

Throughout the month, I will be creating more cards using this lovely paper, so be sure to pop back to check them out.  You can also check out this Christmas Card I created last week using this DSP.

We hope you will join us this month.  To purchase your Tutorial, please click on the Pretty Pattern Papers Page.

Until next time, Happy Stampin’

Summer Note Cards

With summer being around the corner in Australia (well, we don’t really have winter where I am), I thought I would share with you a small sneak peek at one of the cute sets from the upcoming Stampin’ Up! 2016 Holiday Catalogue.  It is one of my favourite perks about being a Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator, being able to see and order new product before it’s released!  AND believe me, the new Holiday Catalogue will not disappoint.

The little Cards are about 3 1/2″ x 2 1/2″ in size.  Enough to write a small note to accompany the new Catalogues.

I sponged Crumb Cake onto a piece of Whisper White Card for the sand & then Soft Sky for the Sky.  I wanted the sponging to be very light so that I could still write on the card.

For all my little cards, I stamped the Umbrella from the “Day by the Beach” Stamp Set directly onto the card in Memento Tuxedo Black Ink.  I then stamped it again onto scrap Whisper White Card before colouring  with my Blender Pen, Watermelon Wonder, Daffodil Delight & Marina Mist Inks.  The top of the umbrella was fussy cut prior to layering onto the Sponged Card with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I then stamped the Starfish, Bucket & Spade, Thongs (love that we now have a pair of thongs in our collection) & Hat Images onto scrap Whisper White Card in Memento Tuxedo Black Ink & coloured with Marina Mist, Daffodil Delight & Watermelon Wonder Inks along with my Blender Pen.

The images were fussy cut & adhered to the Card with Multipurpose Liquid Glue or Stampin’ Dimensionals.

The cards were then layered onto a piece of Soft Sky Card.

I think they represent our Australian summer to a “T”, but would love to hear what you think?

Until next time, Happy Stampin’
