Day 4 & counting down….

…to the end of Sale-a-Bration!  Yep, there is only 2 days left so get those orders in now.  20170321_092233_resizedblog

Today’s card is one we are going to create in our class tomorrow morning.  It is using the “Hey Chick” Stamp Set from SAB.

I’m pretty happy with how this card turned out – completely different to what I started out doing, especially the middle chick.  She started out as a very subdued colour but she just looked very sad, so I spruced her up in the bright colours of Bermuda Bay, Melon Mambo & Daffodil Delight.  She loved it & instantly come alive.

I then decided to add a little bow on her neck.  As I have run out of the Melon Mambo Thick Baker’s Twine, I decided to use the Whisper White Baker’s Twine (retired) which I still have a heap & so it matched in with the card, I sponged Melon Mambo Ink over a piece of Twine with a Stampin’ Sponge.  Worked perfectly.

Day 2 of SAB Countdown

Only a very short post today as I am just about to head off into town, which I don’t do very 20170327_193832_resizedblogoften.

Today’s card is one I had case’d from the 2017 Sale-a-Bration Catalogue when I first received my order, but hadn’t gotten round to posting.

I am loving the “Carried Away” DSP free when you order $AUD90.00.  It has such lovely colours & patterns – so hard to decide which to use.

Don’t forget, only 4 days left of SAB.  To place your order, contact me or shop Online at my store.

Happy Birthday

Today’s card is one we are creating in our “Cards @ Toogoom” class this morning.  I hope 20170322_112448_resizedblogthe ladies like it!

I started by caseing the card from the 2017 SAB Catalogue but it sort of went off on its own.  I then found a card on Pinterest that I loved so I ended finishing my card by caseing it.  Thank you so much for your inspiration.

I’m loving my Blender Pen at the moment as the new smooth & improved Watercolour Pencils make it so very easy to use.  I also want the class to play with them as they are very interested in different techniques, so look out class, we will be doing lots of lovely techniques in our future classes.

Don’t forget that we only have 7 days until SAB ends for another year.  Grab your Free items when you spend $AUD90.00.  You can place your order by shopping Online or contacting me.  SU! have been very generous once again & added 8 new items to the list for the last 2 weeks.

Technique Treats #14

This month we are playing with the great techniques of Chalkboard & Shadow Stamping.  If you haven’t had a play with these techniques over the years, this is the perfect time to do so.  This month we have played with our format & made it a little easier for you.

We stuck with the 2017 Occasions Catalogue & teamed the techniques up with the lovely “Carousel BirthdayStamp Set which reminds me so much of the local show with the Ferris Wheel & when the circus came to town with the tent & that gorgeous horse.  In fact, we were always at the grounds of the circus every arvo after school so much so, that they gave us jobs feeding & cleaning the animals.

All 4 cards may be used for Female, Male or for the Kids.

Measurements for all Treats are in Metric & Imperial.  Yep, we cater for everyone no matter where you are in the world.  Supply List includes all Product used to create our cards along with the Item #.

Our Technique Treats are perfect if you want to create in the comfort of your home or if you are a SU! Demonstrator who would love to teach a Technique Class – all the work is done for you!  Just head over to the Technique Treats Page to purchase your Treat.

We would love to hear what you think of the Treats.

Kay (USA) says –  “Thank you so much for making such wonderful tutorials!!!”

Kris (Brisbane) – “Great card and the Technique Treats are really great”.

Until next time, Happy Stampin’

Happy Birthday

With the school holidays being on, I decided to hold a couple of classes each week until school returns at the end of the month & then we will be doing the adult classes once again.

Much to my surprise they loved it.  The kids were lovely & so happy to be playing with stamps, inks, papers, punches & of course the Big Shot.  I had 1 little girl say all she wanted was her cupcake to pop up like her Aunty……  She squealed with delight when we popped her cake up & just about fell over with excitement & couldn’t wait to show it to her Aunty.  The kids even had the names that they were going to give their cards too.

I saw this card on the internet sometime ago & thought it perfect for them to create.  A little bit of everything.  Unfortunately I am unable to find it again to link back, so a huge thank you for your inspiration.

The card may look a lot to create but breaking it down, you will have it created in no time.

Happy Birthday

I created my card about 2 months ago when I first saw the fantastic “A Day at the Beach” Stamp Set in the 2016 Holiday Catalogue.  It has images of a By Jingo (Icy Pole, Paddle Pop, etc), Thongs, Hat, Sunnies, etc all of which I think are very Beachy & Aussie!  I have so many ideas that I can’t seem to get them down on card quick enough.

Today’s card is one that sort of popped into my head immediately on seeing the Stamps.  It is a “Shaker Card” but with some of the stamps from the set – Sun, Thongs & By Jingo Images & represents our summers here in OZ.

I punched 3 circles into a piece of Whisper White Card with the 1″ Circle Punch before adhering a piece of Window Sheet behind each circle.

To create my Shakers I applied the great new Foam Adhesive Strips around each circle & filled them up with lots of bling, eg Sequin Trim, Sequins & even sand from the beach.

This piece was then adhered to a piece of Daffodil Delight Card & then to the Base Card – Whisper White.

I stamped “Happy Birthday” from “Crazy About You” Stamp Set in Rich Razzleberry Ink direct onto Whisper White, layered it onto a piece of Rich Razzleberry before adhering across a section of the Card Front.

For the images I used my Blender Pen, Shimmer White Card & Memento Tuxedo Ink.  The Sun – Daffodil Delight Ink, Thongs – Flirty Flamingo & Rich Razzleberry Inks & the By Jingo – Daffodil Delight & Rich Razleberry Inks.  Each image was fussy cut & adhered to the circles.

To complete the card I popped a couple of small Rhinestones to each of my Thongs as well as the Card Front.

I will admit it is a little different but I’m happy with it!  I would like to know what you think about it too!

Until next time,

Happy Stampin’

When I created my card I am sharing with you today, all the items were current.  In fact, it 3  Juneis one of the cards created for our Pretty Pattern Papers which sees the release of the new Tutorial tomorrow, so be sure to head on back to grab your tutorial.

For my card I used the “Go Wild” DSP Stack (retired) to create my bags.  These were adhered to 3 separate pieces of Melon Mambo Card, a piece of Silver Cording Trim (retired) was used for the hands & pieces of Tissue adhere to the top of each bag.

I embossed a piece of Whisper White with the Boho Chic Embossing Folder before layering onto a piece of Melon Mambo before layering onto the Base Card – Daffodil Delight.

The greeting from SAB 2016 “Hello” Stamp Set was stamped onto Whisper White in Melon Mambo, cut into shape before layering onto a piece of Basic Black & then across the card front.  The Bags were adhered to the Card with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

To finish the card I cut 3 small flowers from the “Botanical Builder” Framelits 1 x Whisper White, 1 x Daffodil Delight & 1 x Melon Mambo, adhered them to each bag & popped a small Rhinestone to the centre of each to finish the card.

A very simple card but one that shows you how to use those little pieces of DSP lying around but you don’t want to toss out.

For more ideas on how to use your DSP, pop on over to the Pretty Pattern Papers Page.

Until tomorrow, Happy Stampin’
