Technique Tuesday

You've-Got-This---Close-Up

G’Day Stampers,

It is Tuesday & that means a new technique for you to download & play with.  Remember, if you don’t have the product I’ve used on my card, use what you have on hand.  This week we are highlighting Bleaching.  What I love about this technique is that it is always changing.  My card has changed a lot since I first created it & not every petal is the same.

This is one of the cards we created a couple of weeks ago in our class.  I am happy to say the ladies loved it.  They also enjoyed playing with the technique too…..  I keep forgetting to take photos to share with you as their cards turned out beautiful.

These techniques appear on my blog every 2nd & 4th Tuesday of the month, along Technique-Layoutwith 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.

G’Day Stampers,

I don’t usually write about personal stuff here but I feel that I have to spread the word about organ donations.  It is very important to register, no matter which country you A-Little-Wild---Amberreside in, get yourself & family members talking about it.  Let your family members know your decision.  In Australia & if possible register your wishers online.  You can find out more information by clicking here.

I have been playing a lot with the A Little Wild Bundle & must say I am loving it.  I will be honest & say that it has been sitting on my shelf for a little while now, but so glad that I have finally inked it.  You will love it too.

I saw this card on Pinterest sometime ago & it sort of stuck in my mind.  So thank you Lorri for your inspiration.  I loved the card so much that I created 2.

A-Little-Wild---InsideI’m happy to say that my card went off in the mail at the beginning of the week so my neice should have received it by now.  She loves Poo Bear & this set reminds me of her.

Until next time, Happy Stampin’

Oh-So-Eclectic---Rose-Red--

I’m sharing with you a card I created for a game we had on our Facebook Page last week.  I am a little late in posting this as I had to make a quick trip to Brisbane on the weekend.

I love the Oh So Eclectic Bundle & as it was sitting on my desk from another project I decided to go with it  I’m really happy with the way it turned out, especially the flowers as I’ve added Perfect Plum to the inner petals to highlight them a little.  Never be afraid to play & experiment with colours.  You will be surprised at how they turn out!October

Colourful-Seasons---Close-U

Today’s card is another we created in our Cards @ Toogoom class a couple of weeks ago.  You can see the 1st card here.  Both cards use the Emboss Resist Technique which you can find Technique Tutorials here.

For some reason I love Christmas baubles.  Don’t know why, but I especially love that they can come in all sizes & colours.  I don’t have a bauble set so I set about creating some of my own.

We used the Colorful Seasons Stamp Set to create our card by randomly stamping the Colourful-Seasons---Insidesnowflake images onto a piece of Whisper White CS, using the Emboss Resist Technique & punching out 3 different size circles.

To hang the baubles we die cut a “branch” from the Seasonal Layers Thinlits, & Silver Foil before being attaching Silver Metallic Thread.  The Whisper White background has been embossed using the Softly Falling EF & then layered onto a piece of Dapper Denim CS.

Basic Sponging meets…

… the beach & the Hometown Greetings Edgelits.

Hearts-Come-Home---Close-Up

Our card today is one we created in our class a couple of weeks ago.  You may have seen the 1st one I shared with you already.   I love it when I can get multiple uses from my Stamps & Dies & this is just one of those occasions where I am doing a happy dance & created Beach Huts.  You can see another card I created using the same Edgelits here.

In our classes we have started on Techniques & the ladies are loving them.  I have a list that they would like to try out so that saves me trying to think of new ones to teach.

Don’t forget you are able to download the Technique Tutorials for FREE by clicking on the Free Techniques Tutorials Page.  Yes, SU! Demos are able to use them for their classes too.  The page will be updated every 2 weeks with new techniques.

Christmas with Painted Harvest

Painted-Harvest-Christmas--

G’Day Stampers,

I was wide awake at about 3.30am the other morning & this idea sort of popped into my 4-februaryhead, so of course I had to try it out immediately.  I’m happy to say it worked & that I am more than excited that I can now use the set for multiple occasions.  Gotta love it when you can get multiple uses from your products.

I’ve taken the layout for the card from a sketch that I gave to my team sometime ago & thought it would be good to revisit the same sketch but with different supplies.  You can see the original card by clicking here.  I think I’ve hit the mark with this one.  Don’t you?

Painted-Harvest-Christmas-I

The “berries” are from the same stamp set & randomly stamped in Berry Burst.  The Tranquil Tide Ribbon was layered across the top of the Painted Autumn DSP & then the Lemon Lime Twist Ombre Ribbon (it’s so pretty) across the middle of that.

The stamped wreath was die cut with the circle from the Stitched Shapes Framelits before being layered onto a scallop circle die cut from the Layering Circles Framelits.

The sentiment is from the Hearts Come Home set & was stamped direct onto Whisper White in Berry Burst.

The card was layered onto Lemon Lime Twist & then to the Base Card – Tranquil Tide.

My card today is one we created in our class a couple of weeks ago.  We don’t have snow at Christmas in Australia so I tried to create a bush Christmas.  I’ve use the “Hearts Come Home” Bundle, Page 39 of the 2017 Holiday Catalogue.  The Bundle includes the “Hearts Come Home” Stamp Set & the “Hometown Greetings” Edgelits Dies.  I teamed it up with the “Hearth & Home” Thinlits to create my theme.  Santa racing through the sky finishes off the scene.

Stampin’ Dreams Blog Hop

G’Day Stampers.
Thanks so much for joining me today.  I am participating for the first time in the Stamping Dreams Blog Hop for September.  The theme this month is “Something Different”.  It could be a fun fold, a shaker card, a spin card or even a technique.

I decided to go with Scrapbooking & share one of my pages we created last week in our Memories & More Scrapbooking Class.  We used the “Pick a Pattern” DSP along with the “Pattern Pieces”,Blender Pens, Stampin’ Write Markers & more to create our page. Pattern Pieces1 (2)

The page could be used for a boy or girl.  In this case, my page is going down to my niece for her son.  Once my page/s have been used for a class I post them off to Bon to add to her albums.  I have been doing this for some time now, she enjoys getting the parcel in the post & I enjoy creating them.

Sometimes, I will add photos & journaling to page, other times Bonnie adds her photos & journaling.  I think the surprise is not knowing what she will receive in the mail but the albums are slowing growing.

If you click on the link below you will be able to download a free tutorial which includes the product used to create the page plus measurements (metric & imperial).

Thank you so much for stopping by & checking out my project today.

By clicking on the links list below, you will be able to check out the other lovely creations in the hop

Until next time, Happy Stampin’
