Global Stamping Friends Blog Hop

It’s been awhile but I decided to play along with the Global Stamping Friends Blog Hop.  The hop includes International Demos from all over the world.

This month they are having an extra hop to share sneak peeks from the Catalogue or to show something that is carrying over to the new catalogue.  I’ve opted to go with the Colourful Seasons Stamp Set & the matching Seasonal Layers Thinlits.  I have used the retiring Colour Theory DSP – love this stuff.

You may recognize the card as I’ve sort of case’d the one from the catalogue but changed things along the way – created a card, added a Whisper White layer onto a Crushed Curry Card Base, sponged the leaves with Crushed Curry & a Sponge Dauber as well as adding Thick Whisper White Baker’s Twine.

By clicking on the link above the photo, you will be able to download a free tutorial to create your own version.  The tutorial includes a list of products used, measurements (metric & imperial) plus a tutorial for the card.

To see more inspiration, be sure to visit all the other blogs in the hop – click on the Next arrow or the links below the photo.

Until next time, Happy Stampin’

Pieces-&-Patterns---Close-U

Today’s card is a suite that is retiring – Pick a Pattern.  It includes the cute little stamp set Pieces & Patterns, along with the Pick a Pattern DSP.

I actually took the idea from the one of the samples on Page 40 of the 2017-2018 AnnualPieces-&-Patterns---Inside Catalogue & changed it around a little, well a lot.  The sentiment has been stamped in VersaMark onto Basic Black CS & heat embossed with White Emboss Powder.

Best Wishes for the Season

Holly-Berry-Happiness-1---C

My post today is going to be short (on the way out the door) but a card which was created a little while ago but never shared.  Anyhow, it is always to get an early start on your  Christmas cards.

It is using the gorgeous Merry Little Christmas DSP from the 2017 Holiday Catalogue (retired).  I’ve teamed it up with the Holly Berry Happiness Stamp Set along with the Holly Berry Builder Punch.  I must say I used this set a lot last year & seemed to be my go to set for Christmas.

If you click on the link below, you will be able to download a free tutorial to create your own card.  The card can be used for any occasion so all you have to do is change out the stamp & DSP.

Until next time, Happy Stampin’

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.

Don’t forget if you click on the link below, you can download your own tutorial to create your card.  The tutorial includes a list of supplies plus measurements (metric & imperial).

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.

Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star…

 

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.

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’m #3!

For my card today I’ve used the cute little “A Little WildStamp Set , Page 108 of the 2017-2018 Annual Catalogue.  It is also available as a Bundle.

You could use it for a newborn, birthday, etc.  The set is perfect for all occasions as well as Tags to attach to presents.

I have a couple of other cards in the process of being created using this same set in time for an  Expo that I will be attending in a couple of weeks.  I will post them as soon as they are completed so be sure to pop back & check them out.

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.

275. To a Wonderful Mother – You’ve Got This

You've-Got-This

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’
