277. Colorful Seasons – Happy Birthday

Colourful-Seasons---Birthda

 

Happy Birthday

I was asked a couple of weeks ago to create a card for a friend of mine who turned 89, 2 weeks ago.  We all call him “Pop” & my dog Belle, just loves going down to their place for 20170605_095253blog-insidevisits but I really think it is the treats they give her.  I often come home alone as Belle is happy sitting on the mat at their feet & in the company of their little dog, Friday.

I did case this card off Pinterest that I had seen a little time ago & loved the simple easy design of the card.  Thank you so much for your inspiration.  It suits Pop as he is always out in the garden or shed playing & building stuff, with Belle always at his heels.

I stamped the images onto a piece of scrap Whisper White Card with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink & die cut them using the matching “Build It” Framelits by running through the Big Shot.

The background from the stamp Set “Awesomely Artistic” was stamped direct onto a piece of Whisper White Card in Marina Mist Ink while the small accessories were all stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black Ink.  The card was then layered onto a piece of Marina Mist & then to the Base Card – Night of Navy.

The tools were coloured & blended with Soft Sky, Marina Mist, Smokey Slate & Basic Grey Inks using a Blender Pen before being adhered the Card Front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Until next time, Happy Stampin’

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.

Until next time, Happy Stampin’

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 – FMS 276

It is not often that I post on a Saturday as I usually have the day off from crafting but I’ve20170225_073820_resizedblog issued a challenge over on our FB Page that this weekend, we had to find a challenge, create a project & post it somewhere including our Page.

I’ve had my head going around the past couple of days thinking of a way to create a card using the challenge over at FMS.  Once I sort of set my mind to what I wanted to do, I was surprised at how easy my card came together.   As I hadn’t created a male card in some time, I also challenged myself to creating one for the males & think I have succeeded.  Although I will admit that I wanted to emboss the background but completely forgot about that part until after I put it together.  Oh, well!

Thank you once again to the team over at FMS for a great challenge – loved the layout!

Until next time, Happy Stampin’

FMS 273

The challenge this week over at Freshly Made Sketches is simple & easy.  You can make it fms-final-273-001what you like.  I decided to keep mine fairly simple with a little Water Colouring thrown in.

To create my card, I coloured a piece of Shimmery White CS with my Aqua Painter, Pear Pizzazz Ink for the grass, Soft Sky & Pool Party Inks for the Sky.

Once dry, I then stamped the Grass Image from the “Glamper Greetings” Stamp Set over my “grass” in Pear Pizzazz Ink.  A couple of small clouds from the “Life Me Up” Stamp Set were stamped in the sky (very had to see) in Soft Sky Ink.

I then cut the piece into 3 equal pieces before layering onto  piece of Basic Black CS leaving small edges showing around all pieces.  I originally had it layered onto Whisper White, but it did nothing for the card.  The Black makes the piece pop & the soft Water Colouring stand out a little.

The piece was layered onto a piece of Whisper White CS & then to the Base Card – Basic Black.

I have had an idea in my head about using this image after seeing Balloons in a certain way, so I set out & inked the large Balloon from “Lift Me Up” Stamp Set with Bermuda Bay Ink & Daffodil Delight using a Sponge Dauber.  I love how it turned out with the 2 colours. This was then die cut with the matching “Up & Away” Framelits & adhered to the Card Front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

The small Balloon was inked in Bermuda Bay, cut with the matching “Up & Away” Framelits before it too, was adhered to the Card with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I masked off the top part of the “…..Happy Birthday” Image from the same set with Sticky Tape, inked it with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink, removed the mask & stamped it onto a scrap of Whisper White CS.  I then cut it into a Banner Shape 1 end before adhering to the Card Front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

To complete the card, I tied 2 small Bows from Whisper White Twine & adhered to the Balloons with Mini Glue Dots.  The birds were hand drawn with a Project Life Journaling Pen.

Thank you once again FMS for a great sketch.  You still have time to play along.

Until next time, Happy Stampin’
