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.

My card today is one I’ve cased using a number of different designs from Pinterest.  I took little bits of inspiration from 4 or 5 cards & put them all on 1 card.  I think it has worked & it is not too busy, but please let me know what you think?

I love the Holly Berry Happiness Stamp Set which is in the 2017-2018 Annual Catalogue.  I think it is one that has been missed but one with a bit of a WOW factor when you use it!  You are able to create simple, yet lovely creations using the set.Holly-Berry-Hapiness---Insi

I’ve actually used my Cherry Cobbler & Old Olive Stampin’ Blends to colour the images……  Love these!  Did you know you can purchase them individually or in a combo pack of 2?

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.

To grab your free tutorial, click on the link above the photo.  It includes all product used in the project along with measurements (metric & imperial).

Merry & Bright

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’

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.

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.
