Ahoy There

Have you heard the news?

Stampin’ Up! have given us 8 more items for the remaining of 2017 SAB.  How good is6.1 Ghosting - Juy that?

To celebrate the new release I thought I would share a card from our July 2016 Technique Treats using the “Seaside” Embossing Folder which is 1 of the FREE items when placing a $90.00 order up until 31 March 2017.

It is also showcasing the Ghosting Technique“.  If you haven’t played with this technique, you don’t know how much fun it can be.

I’ve actually used “By the Shore” Suite, Page 93 of the Annual Catalogue.  Don’t you love it when everything coordinates?  Along with the “Seaside” EF, there is the matching “By the Shore” DSP, Dapper Denim Ribbon, “By the Shore” CS Pack & not forgetting the lovely “Seaside Shore” Stamp Set.  Be sure to check them out.

To see another card using this technique, head on over to the Technique Page to purchase your July Technique.

Until next time,

Happy Stampin’

Falling Flowers

G’day Friends,

It has seemed like forever since my last post, so fingers crossed, I will be posting again  as from this week.

I thought I would share with you a card I did for my friend & downline some time ago.20160911_103016_resizedblog  Naomi held her very first Workshop way back in early October & it was a huge success.  Good on you Naomi.  Bring on 2017!

Sorry there is no tutorial for you to print today as the card was rushed off in the mail the day I created it.  I am going to try & remember what I did from the photo, so please be kind to me.

I used the “Ghosting” Technique on the panel of my card which is Technique Treat #6.

I randomy stamped the large image from the “Falling Flowers” Stamp Set onto a piece of Whisper White Card in VersaMark Ink allowing it to dry a little. With a Stamping Sponge, I sponged a piece of Whisper White Card with Melon Mambo, Daffodil Delight & Pumpkin Pie Inks before adhering to a panel of Basic Black Card.  The piece was layered onto a piece of Whisper White before layering onto the Base Card – Basic Black.

I stamped the Flower Images & the Leaf Images onto scraps of Whisper White in Memento Tuxedo Ink, coloured them with my Blender Pen using Melon Mambo, Pumpkin Pie, Daffodil Delight & Old Olive Inks.  The were then die cut with the coordinating “May Flowers” Framelits by running through the Big Shot before adhering to the Card Front with Stampin’ Dimensionals & Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

From memory I may have even gone over the flowers with the Clear Wink of Stella to give it a lift.

It is a very simple card but I think with the sponged panel it gives it a “WOW” factor.

Until next time, Happy Stampin’

Ahoy There

I thought I would share with you one of the cards created from our Technique Treats #6 where we used the gorgeous Stamp Set “Seaside Shore” along with the coordinating “By the Shore” DSP and the coordinating Seaside Textured EF.  You can see more ideas on Page 92 & 93 of the 2016 Annual Catalogue.

For my card I used the Ghosting Technique along with the lovely new Dapper Denim In Colour.

Happy Birthday to You

My post today is only a short one – on my way out to appointments……

I’ve played with the Ghosting Technique to create my card & was also one of our cards in our Technique Class last month.  Mind you, the colours are not what I would normally use either but hey, it is good to get out of your comfort zone once in awhile.  The ladies seemed to like it, so that is the main thing.

Until next time, Happy Stampin’
