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.

Day 3 of showcasing our class Christmas Cards.

If you saw my post on Monday, I shared with you one of the cards we created in our Creative Cards Class showcasing the gorgeous Year of Cheer Specialty DSP.  Grab it while you are able as it is one of the items retiring from the 2017 Holiday Catalogue.

Once again, I’ve used the Peace This Christmas Stamp Set but heat embossed it with the Silver Emboss Powder.Year-of-Cheer-1---Inside

To compliment the lovely DSP & embossing,  we’ve used touches of Silver Foil both to the card front & to the inside of the card.

The snowflake on the front of the card is from Seasonal Layers Thinlits Die & has been die cut from Silver Foil.

To pick up the silver in the DSP, I’ve layered onto a piece of Smokey Slate CS & then to the Base Card – Thick Whisper White.

To finish off the card I scattered Rhinestone Basic Jewels around the embossed sentiment.

Until next time, Happy Stampin’

Good Morning Stampers,

Over the next 2 weeks I will be sharing with you the Christmas Cards we have been creating in our classes, all very different but all with a bit of a wow.  In fact, the ladies are loving them & keep coming back so that must be a good thing, right?

Today’s card is one I actually cased from Pinterest to get my creative juices flowing usingYear-of-Cheer---Inside the gorgeous Year of Cheer Speciality DSP..  Thank you to Connie for your inspiration.  Of course I’ve put my own spin on it.

The sentiment is from the Peace This Christmas Stamp Set.  One which I think has been a little overlooked this year.  It is so easy to do with all the new product to play with.

It has been stamped in VersaMark & then heat embossed using the Copper Emboss Powder.  I’ve randomly scattered a couple of the lovely White Perfect Accents to complete the card.

Hearts-Come-Home-1---Close-

This is one of the cards we created in our “Cards @ Toogoom” class last Friday.  The ladies loved it – simple but with a bit of a WOW when you open it, as it has a Pop Up Gift Card Holder inside.  We actually created one similar to this one a couple of years ago in our Technique Class.  It is always good to revisit older creations & revamp them.  Mind you, with the DSP we used on our card, you could use it for any occasion – just omit Santa, the trees & change out the sentiment.

Be Merry DSP is from the 2017-2018 Annual Catalogue while the stamp set “Hearts Come Hearts-Come-Come---Gift-CarHome” is from the 2017 Holiday Catalogue.  The stamp set is also available in a Bundle.

You can find the free tutorial for the card & the holder inside by clicking on the link below which includes all measurements (metric & imperial) as well as a list of supplies used to create by card.

Be sure to check back in a couple of days as I have another Gift Card Holder to share with you.

Until next time, Happy Stampin’

G’Day Stampers,

My card today is one we are creating in Cards @ Toogoom today using the Half Full Stamp Set which is available in the 2017 Holiday Catalogue.  It took me a little time to grab this one as I wasn’t too sure if I would like it or not BUT I LOVE it!  In fact I know quite a few ladies that would just love this set & card…..  Fingers crossed the ladies today do too.

I actually took my inspiration from a card I saw on Pinterest but made it my own, sortHalf-Full-1---Inside of!  Thank you so much Amanda for your inspiration.

The Whisper White is actually Shimmery White & has been embossed using the Holly EF before being layered onto a piece of Pool Party CS & then to the Base Card – Sahara Sand.  As I am a lover of non-traditional colours for Christmas, I am actually loving these colours together & may have to play more with them.  Pink Pirouette & Sahara Sand also spring to mind.

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.
