G’Day Stampers,

Once again, I am taking part in Kylie’s International Blog Highlights where our theme this month is our favourite Sale-A-Bration Or Occasions Catalogue Product.  This is the perfect time to celebrate, showcase & see all our lovely products!

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 was playing around with the lovely Petal Passion Suite the other day creating a couple of future classes when an idea sort of popped into my head & of course I had to go for it.  The Suite includes the lovely Petal Palette Stamp Set, Petals & More Thinlits Dies, Petal Passion DSP, Petal Passion Embellishments, Whisper White Organza Ribbon & of course the Petal Pair Embossing Folders.  I’ve used all the mentioned except for the Ribbon.Petal-Palette---Inside-Cher

I’ve kept my card all Whisper White except for touches of Cherry Cobbler which I think only highlights the Whisper White even more.

Don’t forget to pop on over to check out all the other lovely creations by visiting Kylie’s Blog.  While there, be sure to vote for your 5 favourites.

Amazing-You---Close-Up-Daff

G’Day Stampers,

I am sharing with you one of the cards we created in our class last Friday where we played with the gorgeous Amazing You Stamp Set.  You are able to earn this set for Free when spending $90AUD while Sale-A-Bration is on.  I’ve teamed it up with the gorgeous Petal Passion DSP which is from the 2018 Occasions Catalogue.  It is also one of the cards Amazing-You-Daffodil-Delighwe created in our Creative Class a couple of weeks ago.

The flower has been stamped onto a piece of Whisper White CS in Memento Tuxedo Black Ink & die cut using the Stitched Shapes Framelits.  Another flower was stamped onto scrap Whisper White, coloured using the Watercolour Pencils & Blender Pen.  It was then fussy cut before being adhered to the top of the stamped flower.

Petal-Passion---Close-Up

I’ve been playing with the Petal Passion DSP over the last couple of days.  All I can say is “WOW”.  Loving it!  I have even managed to create cards for 2 classes using the DSP & the coordinating Stamp Set – Petal Palette.  I’ve used the Watercolour Pencils to colour along with the Stampin’ Blends which is how I’ve coloured today’s card.

I cut a piece of the DSP & randomly colouring the flowers with Calypso Coral, Pink Pirouette & Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Blends Combos.  The leaves were coloured with a Petal-Passion-Colouring---Ilittle Light Daffodil Delight & then with Old Olive Combo.  The background has been coloured in Light Pool Party.  Colouring the background made the flowers seem like they are floating.

Candy Dots were randomly scattered around the card front to finish it off but you could easily replace them with current product, eg Pearl Basic Jewels, Faceted Gems, etc.

323. Happy Birthday – Petal Passion DSP

Celebrate You – SSC171

Beautiful-Day-Pink-Close-Up

G’Day Stampers,

Today I am playing along with a challenge over at Sunday Stamps.  The challenge this week is “Pops of Pink“.  As I’ve been playing with the gorgeous “Painted with Love” Specialty DSP ” it was the perfect choice.  SSC171

I’ve kept my layout fairly simple so that I could showcase the beautiful paper as well as the flower from the “Beautiful Day” Stamp Set.

The sentiment is from the same set & was stamped direct onto the Whisper White in Memento Tuxedo Black.  I’ve used both Pink Pirouette & Rich Razzleberry Stampin’ Blends Combos to colour my flower while the leaf has been Beautiful-Day-Pink-Insidecoloured with Old Olive & Daffodil Delight.

To lift the flower away from the DSP, I added a small amount of Gold Metallic Thread which I think ties it altogether. To finish it off I added a little touch of Clear Wink of Stella to the petals.

If you click on the link below you will be able to download a free tutorial to create your own card.  The tutorials includes measurements (metric & imperial) along with a list of supplies used to create the card.

Thank you ladies for a great challenge.  Do pop along to Sunday Stamps to check out all the other lovely creations.

Until next time, Happy Stampin’

G’Day Stampers,

It’s been awhile, but I’m happy to say that Technique Tuesday is back again this year.

We’re playing with Brushos today & showing you a basic way of using them.  Mind you, you will still have a fantastic result just the same.  Remember, if you don’t have the product I’ve used on my card, use what you have on hand.

This is one of the cards we created a couple of weeks ago in our class.  The ladies loved playing with them especially when they saw how the powders reacted to water & how everyone’s card turned out very different.  Have you tried them yet?Basic-Sponging---4-per-page

There is a little change this year in that they may only appear the 4th Tuesday of the month.  Yes, you will still receive the 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.

Oh, So Eclectic

Oh-So-Eclectic--Jenny---Clo

G’Day Stampers,

Today’s card is one I created for a friend who celebrated her 60th birthday last week.  Thanks to Jenni’s dress for the inspiration!

I must apologise for not having a tutorial for you to download but I will try & remember how I created it.  First up, I’ve used the Oh So Eclectic Bundle which includes the Oh So Eclectic Stamp Set & the Eclectic Layers Thinlits.

To create my card I sponged a piece of Whisper White CS with Crushed Curry, Night ofOh-So-Eclectic---Jenny---In Navy & Elegant Eggplant Inks using a Stamping Sponge.  This piece was then adhered behind a piece of Whisper white CS which had been die cut using the Eclectic Layers Thinlits.  It was then layered onto a piece of Crushed Curry CS & then to the Base Card – Elegant Eggplant.

The large flower was stamped onto a piece of Whisper White CS in Memento Tuxedo Black Ink before applying Elegant Eggplant Ink with a Sponge Dauber.  The inner petals were highlighted with Night of Navy Ink using a Blender Pen before finishing off with Clear Wink of Stella & die cutting with the matching die from Eclectic Layers Thinlits.

Oh-So-Eclectic-Jenny-Close-The 2 flowers were once again stamped onto a piece of Whisper White CS.  The first flower was lightly shaded with Crushed Curry Ink using a Sponge Dauber.  Again, the lower inner petals were highlighted with Crushed Curry & a Blender Pen before being die cut with the matching die from the Oh So Eclectic Thinlits & Clear Wink of Stella applied.

I used the same technique for the 2nd flower but this time using Night of Navy & Elegant Eggplant Inks.

The leaves were die cut with the Eclectic Layers Thinlits from a piece of Whisper White before Garden Green Ink applied with a Sponge Dauber.

The flowers & leaves were arranged onto the Card Front before being adhered with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  The sentiment is from the Bunch of Blossoms Stamp Set & has been stamped direct onto the Card Front in Memento Tuxedo Black.

To complete the card I scattered Regals Candy Dots (retired) around the Card Front.  You could easily replace the Dots with current products & colouring with the Stampin’ Blends.

I’m happy to say Jenni loved her card & hopefully you do too.

Until next time, Happy Stampin’

Let’s Celebrate Your Day

Bunch-of-Blossoms-1---Close

I’ve been quite on my blog for a little – family stuff going on but hopefully I can find my creative side once again & get back into my regular blogging.

To begin with, I cased a sketch from a challenge, didn’t get it posted in time but thought I would share it with you anyhow.  It is a very simple card but one I hope will inspire you.  I’ve kept lots of white on the card as I wanted the colours to be the WOW factor.Bunch-of-Blossoms-1---Insid  In fact, the card could be used for a number of occasions.

I’ve used the lovely “Bunch of Blossoms” Stamp Set along with the corresponding Blossom Builder Punch.   I wanted to create something bright & happy which is why I’ve used Daffodil Delight & Old Olive Inks.  As I wanted lots of white to highlight the colours, I opted for Chocolate Chip & Whisper White CS – love these colours together.

By clicking on the link below you are able to download a free tutorial to create your own card or just use the layout.  It includes all the measurements (metric & imperial) along November-2017with a list of products.
