Technique Treats

Today I am sharing with you one of the cards created for our Technique Treats way back in March 2016.  It is using the lovely little “Easter Lamb” Stamp from the 2016 Occasions

march

March 2017 Technique Treats

Catalogue.  You could easily swap it out for a more current stamp set along with a different sentiment or greeting & it would be a whole new card.

 

To create my background I used Pear Piazzazz & Soft Sky Re-Inkers, but again you can easily change your colours to suit your card.  Spray shaving Cream onto a Paper Plate, Alfoil or Photo Copy Paper before randomly adding drops of Pear Pizzazz & Soft Sky Re-Inkers into the Shaving Cream & swirl through with the Simply Scored Tool being carful not to mix too much.

Place a piece of Shimmery White CS into the Shaving Cream until all CS is covered.  You could do more pieces if you want so that you can use them at a later date.  Wipe excess off with a Tissue.  Use the piece for your card background or run it through the Big Shot with a Die.

If you head on over to the Technique Treats Page, you will find another Tutorial using the same Technique along with heaps of other fun Technique Tutorials.  You also receive separate instructions for your Techniques which means you are able to file in a folder & keep for later.

Until next time, Happy Stampn’

Mad Hatter’s T Par T

I am still not back to posting properly but fingers crossed that we will be back on track next week.

Today’s post are just some of the tickets I created for a Mad Hatter’s Tea Party which is happening next weekend.  This event has been months in planning but I think we are just about there.

I’ve used the “Have a Cuppa” DSP Pack from the 2016 Occasions Catalogue.  The paper was perfect for this event & seeing as though I had heaps left over including a full pack, it worked in perfectly.

As we are using bright greens, purples, oranges, yellows, pinks with black & white thrown in & nothing matching, I thought it would be a good idea to start the event off with having all different tickets.  The ladies loved them, especially when they realised that they all had a different ticket.

We’ve kept the rest of the stationery & decorations a well guarded secret, but wil share with you the remainder of everything once the event is over.

Until next time, Happy Stampi’

Wedding Wishes

I have been missing in action the last week or 2 but am feeling up to doing a little today.  While the going is good, I thought I would also try a little post.  It is also a challenge from our FB Page to do an extra blog this week.  Well, seeing as though I set the challenge, I felt I had to play along.

As I don’t have a card created (still not creating), I thought I would start sharing some of our cards we have created for our Technique Treats – #1 Collection.  In saying that I will only be sharing 1 or 2 from each collection.  You are still able to purchase the tutorials for the posted card along with the other cards in the collection by heading over to the “Technique Treats” Page.

My first card is one we did way back in February 2016 when the 2016 Occasions Catalogue come out.  It has been created using the lovely “Rose Wonder” Stamp Set along with the coordinating “Rose Garden” Framelits.  The technique is “Re-Inkers” – perfect for getting more use from your Re-Inkers.

I also used the Layering Squares Framelits along with the gorgeous Neutrals Paper StackBasic Black which pops the Flower.

Until next time, Enjoy!

It’s been  few days since my last post.  I have been creating plus cleaning my craft room.  Hopefully, I will be sharing lots of new cards over the next few weeks.

Today’s card has been created for a challenge over at Freshly Made Sketches.  I love their challenges & try to play along as much as possible but it doesn’t always work out that way.20161231_100935_resizedblog

I don’t have a tutorial as such so will explain how I created my card.  I also decided to go with colours that are not normally female, but I do like the finished result.

I embossed a piece of Soft Sky CS with the Seaside EF & adhered to the Base Card – Early Espresso.  I then decided to emboss a piece of Whisper White CS with the same EF but going in the opposite direction before layering onto a piece of Sweet Sugarplum CS & then to the Card Front.

The smaller piece of Whisper White CS was randomly coloured towards the bottom with the new Watercolour PencilsEarly Espresso & Pool Party before blending with the Aqua Painter & allowing to dry.  I randomly stamped the “footprints” from the “Totally Trees” Stamp Set in Early Espresso Ink.

The tree trunk was stamped in Early Espresso Ink while the frons are in Pear Pizzazz Ink.  The coconuts are Early Espresso but I’ve had to colour around them with the Early Espresso Pencil as I’ve lost 1 of my little images, but hey, it worked.

I took the “Happy Birthday” from the “Sunburst Sayings” Stamp Set & stamped direct onto the same card in Early Espresso Ink.

To complete my card & to make it a little more female, I added a couple of Pearl Basic Jewels.

There is still a few days to play along with this challenge.  I do hope you find the time to do so.

Until next time, Happy Stampin’

Best Wishes

…for the Season.

I was asked to create a card sometime ago in traditional colours which I’ve done but with a modern twist to it.  In fact this is the card we created at the hall last Friday.

I’ve used the “Detailed Ornament” Framelits, “This Christmas Speciality” DSP & the Softly Falling EF to create my card.  I also played with Dazziling Diamonds which I haven’t done in some time.

Until next time, Happy Stampin’

Hello

I am sharing a card today that was created for one of our Technique Treats #8 – “Faux Linen” – 2 ways where we used the lovely stamp set “A Day at the Beach” which is from the 2016 Holiday Catalogue.

I’ve done lots of sponging – moon, waves & sand.  The dolphin, thongs & ball have been coloured with Inks & Blender Pen. I’ve adhered them to the Card with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I’ve used the Faux Linen Technique on the Basic Black Background.

There is so much potential with the lovely little stamp set.

If you want to create more cards using this great technique, be sure to head on over to the “Technique Treats” Page.

Don’t forget, tomorrow is the release of our November Treats.

Until next time, Happy Stampin’

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’
