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.

I love it when Stampin’ Up! bring out fantastic products especially Bundles which is what I have used for my card today.  In fact it is one of our cards we created a couple of weeks ago in our Creative Cards Class.  The Bubbles Over Bundle is from the 2018 Occasions Catalogue & includes the Bubble Over Stamp Set & the Bottles & Bubbles Framelits.

We’ve water washed the background using Shimmery White CS.  I love the washed out Bubble-Over-3---Insidebackgrounds for my cards.  It is an easy way to create easy & simple ways to give a bit of a wow to your cards.  In fact, you can find a free tutorial for this Technique by clicking on the Free Technique Tutorials & download a choice of 3 including a tutorial for a card.

Yes, if you are a SU! Demo, then you 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.

G’Day Stampers,

I’m a little behind in sharing my class cards with you so over the next couple of days & weeks, I will be posting our cards we’ve been creating in class.

My card today is the 2nd one we created a few weeks ago using the cute Party Pandas Stamp Set from Sale-A-Bration.  You can see the 1st one by clicking here.  I took myParty-Pandas-Bermuda-Bay-In inspiration from a number of cards found on Pinterest.

The background has been created with Bermuda Bay, Lemon Lime Twist & Daffodil Delight Inks along with the Aqua Painter & Watercolour Paper.

Magical Day

Magical-Day-Close-Up---Brus

Last week I challenged our FB Group to create a male card using the sketch provided.  I thought it would be a great way to get their creative juices flowing & even use it for a class or demonstration.  This is my take on the sketch.

I love the Magical Day Stamp Set in the 2018 Occasions Catalogue.  The set could be used for so many different occasions, big kids & little kids.  I teamed it up with the #12---2018coordinating Myths & Magic Specialty DSP which is nearly too lovely to cut into, but cut into it I did!

The dragon has been die cut from the Specialty DSP using the Magical Mates Framelits, highlighted a little with the Old Olive Stampin’ Blends before being adhered to the circle with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

The background was created with the Gamboge & Yellow Brushos – love these Powders – by spritzing Shimmery White with water & tapping Brushos directly over the CS, allowing it to spread & setting aside to dry.

The circle is Very Vanilla & was sponged with Daffodil Delight & Tangerine Tango Inks.  I Magical-Day-Inside---Brushospritzed a tiny amount of water over the sponged area before tapping very lighting with the Gamboge Brusho.

The sentiment was stamped onto Very Vanilla in Memento Tuxedo Black Ink, fussy cut & once again sponged with Daffodil Delight & Tangerine Tango Inks.

Congratulations

My post today is one I did for a challenge but forgot to post AND I actually forgot the challenge it was meant for but thought I would sharePetal-Passion---Powder-Pink with you anyway.  Does that ever happen to you?

 As I’m a little hooked on the Petal Passion DSP from the 2018 Occasion Catalogue & I had a half finished project on my desk, I decided to continue with it & see what it ends up like.  I teamed the DSP with the coordinating Petal Palette Stamp Set along with Powder Pin CS & Stampin’ Blends of Old Olive, Rich Razzleberry & Pink Pirouette.

My card today is our 2nd card created last Friday using the same set Amazing You, which you re able to see here.  I still have another to share with you in the next couple of days so be sure to pop back.

Amazing-You---Lemon-Lime-TwFor this card I’ve teamed Lemon Lime Twist with Basic Black & Melon Mambo.  I am loving these colours together – so vibrant!

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.

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’

Narrow Note Cards

G’Day stampers,

I have been playing with the cute little Narrow Note Cards along with the Petal Passion DSP both from the 2018 Occasions Catalogue.  They are perfect for quick, easy cards.

I cut a piece of the DSP, coloured with Stampin’ Blends Combos of Rich Razleberry, Old Olive & Daffodil Delight (leaves). cut the DSP back to the size, adhered to a piece of Rich Razzleberry & then to the front of the Note Card.  I didn’t worry about a sentiment on the front as I like them the way they are.

How easy is that?  Do you have them on your wish list?

Until next time, Happy Stampin’
