Beachy Little Christmas

Beach-Little-Christmas1---C

I certainly hope you all had a lovely relaxing & happy Christmas spending time with family & friends.

I created the card today some time ago, originally for a blog hop but it completely slipped my mind.

When I first saw Beachy Little Christmas  in the 2017 Holiday Catalogue, I saw a wreath using the shells.  I’m quite happy with the result.  In fact, we eventually did it in one of our classes & the ladies loved it especially when they could see another way of using the images.  I must say the set suits our lifestyle down the coast of Australia.

The images have been stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black, coloured with the Watercolour Pencils & Blender Pen.

It’s a little different but one I’m happy with.

Until next time, Happy Stampin’

Gift Card Holder

Along with Christmas Cards, we have been creating Gift Card Holders.  Let’s face it, these Foil Frenzy Speciality DSP, Colorful Seasons, Gift Card Holderslittle things can come in quiet handy this time of the year.  In fact, they may be used throughout the year for all occasions.  I have created this Holder a few years back for another class but thought it time to revisit.

For our Holders, we went with the Foil Frenzy Specialty Paper – love, love this paper.  The week previous, everyone was give the option of choosing their favourite colour to create their Gift Card Holders.  I love it that everyone’s was different.

Once the Belly Band had been created, we used the snowflake from the Seasonal Layers Thinlits  to create our main focal point by sponging a die cut circle, die cutting the Gift-Card-HOlder1snowflake with the Seasonal Layers Thinlits & then inlaying it back in with a Stampin’ Dimensional.  We finished them off with a large Rhinestone (retired).

The ladies enjoyed their class & were tickled “pink” with their Gift Card Holders.

It’s been awhile since I’ve participated in Kylie’s International Blog Highlights so I thought I would check it out & see what the theme for this month was & that is LOVE!  Of course, love is celebrated in sorts of ways, eg Weddings, Baby, Anniversary, etc.

I actually created my card for a new baby taking the layout from a sketch I saw on Pinterest.  Thank you for the inspiration so that I could create my card.

Stampin’ Blends are Here….

You've-Got-This-1---Close-U

By now you are probably aware that Stampin’ Blends are now available for everyone.  I have to say that I am loving them & so will you!

My card is one I sent off in the mail yesterday to thank a friend (one I went to school with & haven’t seen for many years) for a special service we attended a couple of days ago.  I do hope she likes it!

The card has actually been cased from Page 10I of the Annual Catalogue.  Mind you, it You've-Got-This-1---Insidedoesn’t look anything like the original but it was a good starting point as I wanted it to be happy & bright, plus I wanted to play with the Stampin’ Blends.

To create my card, I used the Light Calypso Coral to colour the flowers followed by the Dark Daffodil Delight & then the Light Daffodil Delight.  I’m loving how they turned out.  The leaves were created using the leaf image from Painted Harvest & punched with the coordinating Leaf Punch.  Both are available in the 2017 Holiday Catalogue & are available as a Bundle.

Although I have used a couple of items that have retired (easily replaced by current product) I’m very happy with my card today, but please let me know what you think.

If you click on the link above the card, you will be able to download a tutorial so that you can create your own.  It includes all the measurements (metric & imperial) along November-2017with a list of products.

G’Day Stampers,

My card today is the 2nd card we created a couple of weeks ago when we were playing with the Technique – Bleaching.  Once I start on techniques, I can’t seem to get enough of them.  Can’t you tell I love my techniques.

I love the card today – not sure why.  It could be the simple layout out or the way the Bleach has reacted to Melon Mambo or even the Basic Black behind the Melon Mambo.

Don’t forget to grab your Technique Tutorial, head on over to the Technique Page where you have 3 options for downloading.

May Your Sorrow…

… be eased by Wonderful Memories

Birthday-Blooms---Close-Up

I created this card for a friend of mine lost her brother in a fishing accident a couple of weeks ago.  They are not the best cards to create but we do have to do them sometimes.

I’ve used the new Stampin’ Blends – Rich Razzleberry, Daffodil Delight & Old Olive to colour my flower & leaves.  The image is from the lovely Birthday Blooms Stamp Set.

The image has been stamped onto a piece of Whisper White CS in Memento Tuxedo Black, coloured with the Stampin’ Blends & layered to a piece of Basic Black CS before being adhered to the Base Card – Whisper White, which is in fact a Note Card.

The sentiment is from Better Together & has been stamped onto a scrap piece of Whisper White in Memento Tuxedo Black, punched either end with the Banner Triple Punch before being adhered to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

The card was completed by randomly adhering small Pearl Basic Jewels to the Card Front.

Until next time, Happy Stampin’

Technique Tuesday

You've-Got-This---Close-Up

G’Day Stampers,

It is Tuesday & that means a new technique for you to download & play with.  Remember, if you don’t have the product I’ve used on my card, use what you have on hand.  This week we are highlighting Bleaching.  What I love about this technique is that it is always changing.  My card has changed a lot since I first created it & not every petal is the same.

This is one of the cards we created a couple of weeks ago in our class.  I am happy to say the ladies loved it.  They also enjoyed playing with the technique too…..  I keep forgetting to take photos to share with you as their cards turned out beautiful.

These techniques appear on my blog every 2nd & 4th Tuesday of the month, along Technique-Layoutwith instructions for a card using the technique.  The Technique Tutorial is available for download by clicking on the Free Technique Tutorials Page, file in a folder & keep on hand to use or to refer back to at a later date.

Yes, SU! Demos 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.

Flirty Flowers

Flirty-Flowers---Close-Up

G’Day Stampers,

I hope you all had a lovely weekend & did heaps of creating!

Today’s card has been re-created from one I did a month or so ago & have never shared with you.  It is a simple little card but one that I am happy with.  I am not sure whether it is the colours or the cute little Flirty Flowers Stamp Set.

To create today’s card I’ve used the brand new Stampin’ Blends which will be available to everyone 1 November.  Believe me, you will want them in your collection.  They are just wonderful!

I randomly stamped the images direct onto a piece of Whisper White CS in Memento Tuxedo Black Ink before proceeding to colour the main flowers with the Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Blends.  The larger leaves have been coloured with the Old Olive Stampin’ Blends, but very light while the smaller ones I’ve left as they are.

For some of the smaller flowers I’ve used my Blender Pen & Melon Mambo Ink For some reason I love Daffodil Delight & Melon Mambo together especially when you add touches of Basic Black which is what I layered the Whisper White onto before layering onto a Daffodil Delight Base Card.

The sentiment is from Bunch of Blossoms & has been stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black.

Until next time, Happy Stampin’

G’Day Stampers,

I don’t usually write about personal stuff here but I feel that I have to spread the word about organ donations.  It is very important to register, no matter which country you A-Little-Wild---Amberreside in, get yourself & family members talking about it.  Let your family members know your decision.  In Australia & if possible register your wishers online.  You can find out more information by clicking here.

I have been playing a lot with the A Little Wild Bundle & must say I am loving it.  I will be honest & say that it has been sitting on my shelf for a little while now, but so glad that I have finally inked it.  You will love it too.

I saw this card on Pinterest sometime ago & it sort of stuck in my mind.  So thank you Lorri for your inspiration.  I loved the card so much that I created 2.

A-Little-Wild---InsideI’m happy to say that my card went off in the mail at the beginning of the week so my neice should have received it by now.  She loves Poo Bear & this set reminds me of her.

Until next time, Happy Stampin’

Just a Note…

Daisy-Deliht-Suite---WCMD--

G’Day Stampers,

Today, I am sharing with you another card that went in the mail last week celebrating World Card Making Day..  In fact I liked these so much that I actually created a couple of them which doesn’t happen very often.

I actually saw a card on Pinterest sometime ago similar to this one, but of course now I can’t find it.  If you recognise it, please let me know so that I can give you credit.  Thank you so much for your inspiration.

For my Base Card I’ve used the Note Card & Envelopes available in Whisper White & Very Vanilla.  Did you take advantage to purchase them when they were on special?  I know I did!

I die cut a piece of Whisper White CS using the Swirly Scribles Thinlits before adhering a piece of Window Sheet behind the top & bottom part of the card.  I then decided to add a piece of the Delightful Daisy DSP behind the see through section.  Once this was done, I then Inlaid the die shape back into the card & trimming the excess Window Sheet from the sides & bottom.

Just a Note… is from the set Better Together & was stamped on the top part of the Card in Night of Navy Ink as was the flower.  The leaf & flower are both from the  Daisy Delight Stamp Set & was stamped in Old Olive, stamping off once for the solid image prior to stamping the outline.

The whole piece was then layered onto a piece of Calypso Coral CS & then to the Base Card.

It’s a very simple little card but one I hope the receiver will like.October
