Thinking of You

Heartfelt-Blooms---Close-Up

My post today is a very simple one but I think the colours of Fresh Fig & Flirty Flamingo make it pop!  I wasn’t sure how the 2 colours would work together but I think they compliment each other.  It is also one of the cards we created in our class last Friday.

This set is from 2018 Sale-A-Bration & is the new Stampin’ Up! “DistINKive” Stamp Set!  The floral image lays down your ink at different opacities giving the image of a photograph.  If you haven’t seen the video, check it out here –

Until next time, Happy Stampin’

Epic-Celebrations---Close-U

G’Day Stampers,

The start of the new year brings with it my very first card for a challenge.  It also gave me a chance to put together a piece of CS sitting on my desk waiting to be made into something.  This piece was one of the very first pieces I had created when playing with the new Brushos.  IT was too good to toss out.

I am playing along with the challenge over at Global Design Project where the we have to CASE (copy & share everything) the Designer.  This time round is the very talented Epic-CelebrationsKrista Frattin who just happens to be on the Team.  Thank you Krista for your inspiration.

As the background reminded me something from the 60’s & 70’s I decided to use the Epic Celebrations Stamp Set which you can earn FREE while Sale-A-Bration is happening.  Love this cute little set.

Along with the background I decided that I was going to use the guitar from the set but wanted to cut in 1 piece so I used the Inlaid Die Cut Technique – I think that is what it is called.

Thank you once again to the Design Team for your inspiration.  Don’t forget to head on over to their blog to check out all the lovely creations & while there leave a little love.

Today is Your Day

True-Gentleman-Suite---Clos

G’Day Stampers,

I am having a little trouble getting back into blogging at the moment so fingers crossed all will be back to normal.

I’m sharing with you one of the new suites from the 2018 Occasions CatalogueTrue Gentleman Suite.  Love it!  Mind you, I was in 2 minds as to whether I would purchase it but as usual once in my hands, it is totally different.  Lots of ideas.  I am actually in the middle of planning a class around it.

I wanted to create a very quick simple card but one with a bit of a wow factor showcasing the lovely DSP from True Gentleman DSP.  I took my inspiration from the Catalogue.January

Happy Birthday

Sheltering-Tree---Brushos-C

Today is the day you have all been waiting for!  Sale-A-Bration (ends 31 March 2018) & the 2018 Occasions Catalogue start today. This means that for every $90 AUD you spend, you get to choose product for free from the SAB Brochure.

I’ve been busy over the break & have planned heaps of classes using lots of lovely new product & lots of lovely techniques.  In the next couple of days, I will be posting all the classes, dates, times, etc.

Now, I am not sure if you have heard of the Brushos but these are my favourite from the 2018 Occasions Catalogue.  I just can’t get enough of them.  Each time I think I’ve played enough a new idea pops into my mind, so keep your eye out for more in the next coming weeks.

Today’s card has been created from my very first play with this fun product.  I didn’t want to toss it out once finished even though I thought it didn’t look any good, but I’m happy with the final result.  I suppose you could call it Emboss Resist with Brushos.

If you don’t have a Demonstrator & would like a copy of both the 2018 Occasions Catalogue & SAB Brochure, please do not hesitate in contacting me.  You can also click on the Catalogues on the right hand side.

Beachy Little Christmas

Beach-Little-Christmas1---C

I certainly hope you all had a lovely relaxing & happy Christmas spending time with family & friends.

I created the card today some time ago, originally for a blog hop but it completely slipped my mind.

When I first saw Beachy Little Christmas  in the 2017 Holiday Catalogue, I saw a wreath using the shells.  I’m quite happy with the result.  In fact, we eventually did it in one of our classes & the ladies loved it especially when they could see another way of using the images.  I must say the set suits our lifestyle down the coast of Australia.

The images have been stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black, coloured with the Watercolour Pencils & Blender Pen.

It’s a little different but one I’m happy with.

Gift Card Holder

Along with Christmas Cards, we have been creating Gift Card Holders.  Let’s face it, these Foil Frenzy Speciality DSP, Colorful Seasons, Gift Card Holderslittle things can come in quiet handy this time of the year.  In fact, they may be used throughout the year for all occasions.  I have created this Holder a few years back for another class but thought it time to revisit.

For our Holders, we went with the Foil Frenzy Specialty Paper – love, love this paper.  The week previous, everyone was give the option of choosing their favourite colour to create their Gift Card Holders.  I love it that everyone’s was different.

Once the Belly Band had been created, we used the snowflake from the Seasonal Layers Thinlits  to create our main focal point by sponging a die cut circle, die cutting the Gift-Card-HOlder1snowflake with the Seasonal Layers Thinlits & then inlaying it back in with a Stampin’ Dimensional.  We finished them off with a large Rhinestone (retired).

The ladies enjoyed their class & were tickled “pink” with their Gift Card Holders.

Stampin’ Dreams Blog Hop

19601397_10155538715426757_1438043095150980541_n.jpg

 Thanks so much for joining me today.  I am participating in the Stamping Dreams Blog Hop for December.  The theme this month is showcasing our favourite DSP.  This can be from the 2017-2018 Annual, 2017 Holiday Catalogue, the new 2018 Occasions Catalogue or the 2018 Sale-a-Bration Brochure.  So many options!
This means you are getting a sneak peek from a couple of the items being made available come the 3rd January 2018 as I went with the fun & bright “Bubbles & Fizz” DSP from SAB & which you can earn free when you spend $AUD90.00 (excluding P&H).
I then decided to team it up with the equally fun & matching Bubble Over Bundle which includes the Bubble Over Stamp Set & the Bottles & Bubbles Framelits.  I think these items are going to be one of my favourites from the Catalogues.Bubble-Over---Inside
I’ve kept the use of my DSP fairly simple as I didn’t want it to be overtaken by the bottles, which have been created by die cutting & sponging with Calypso Coral, Lemon Lime Twist, Bermuda Bay, Daffodil Delight & Basic Grey Inks.  I then spritzed the bottle with water to form “bubbles”.

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).

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

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

Until next time, Happy Stampin’

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’
