G’Day Stampers.  Once again I am taking part in Kylie’s International Highlights Hop For June.  This month is all about Friendship.

I am just scraping this in by the skin of my teeth as I thought I had already created this post so I am very lucky that I checked it before it went live.  Sometimes, things just seem to Detailed-with-Love---Insideget on top of you & you get carried away with doing other “stuff”.

I had a bit of a play with some new product – Detailed with Love Stamp Set & the gorgeous Delightfully Detailed Laser-Cut Specialty Paper.  Oh how I love this!

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 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.

Global Stampin’ Friends Blog Hop

Welcome to this month’s Global Stamping Friends Blog Hop & thank you for visiting.  logoWe are a group of card makers from all over the world who love to create.  This month the challenge is all about the spanking, brand new Annual Catalogue.  If you haven’t heard by now the new catalogue went live yesterday so be sure to contact your nearest Demonstrator for a copy.

You have come via the very talented Sharon who does amazing work especially with her scrapbooking.

Dragonfly-Dreams-1---InsideFor my card today I opted to go very simple & showcase a couple of the new In Colours – Lovely Lipstick & Pineapple Punch Inks & boy do they have a “punch”.   I will say I am not a Brights’ girl, but I am loving these colours.  I teamed the Inks with Basic Black, Whisper White & Lovely Lipstick Cardstock along with a set that has carried over – Dragonfly Dreams.

 

My dragonfly has been heat embossed using VersaMark & Clear Emboss Powder.  I love embossing my shapes this way as it sort of packs a bit of a “punch” to your projects.

By clicking on the link above the photo, you will be able to download a free tutorial to create your own version.  The tutorial includes a list of products used, measurements (metric & imperial) plus a tutorial for the card.

Seaside Shore

Seaside-Shore-1---Close-Up

Today’s card is the last of the Retiform Cards we created over a month in our Class a few weeks ago.  It is using one of the sets retiring at the end of the month.  I will miss Seaside Shore but of course SU! never seem to disappoint as there is always something to replace them by.

You can find the tutorial for the Retiform Technique by clicking on the Technique Page.  Be warned though it is very addictive & no 2 cards will ever be the same!

For You

c2ab7-international2bhighlights2bheader2bvote2bfav

I’m taking part in Kylie’s International Highlights Hop this month where it is all about Sarah which means we can share what we love with others.  She has demonstrators thinking of ways that we can make a difference in the lives of others.  Usually the people that get forgotten are the ones that are putting forth amazing ideas just like Sara.

My card is one we created in our colouring class a few weeks ago.  I have shared it on the Demos Page but not with you so I thought this would be the perfect card for Sara.Remarkable-You---Inside  I love the Remarkable You Stamp Set.  We used our Blender Pens & Pacific Point Ink to colour & blend our flowers while Old Olive was used for the leaves.

The colours are way out of my comfort zone but that is what teaching is all about – to take a risk & create something different.  Happy to report the class loved it.

Congratulations

Bold-Butterfly---Close-Up

I did mention a little while ago that I would be sharing with you lots of cards created with retiring product.  Today is one such card although we did create it in one of our classes a few weeks ago.

It’s a very simple card but I think the techniques speak for themselves – Sponging, Heat Embossing & Dazzling Diamonds.  We teamed the techniques up with the Butterflies Thinlits.

If you want to grab these Thinlits before they are gone, then please check out the Last-Chance Products – Occasions & Annual (which are selling very fast) before they are gone & gone forever..

Bubble Over

Bubble-Over-1---Close-Up

I seem to be so far behind in sharing with you so I am on a mission to share a heap of creations this week.  Fingers crossed that all goes well.

Today’s card is one we did for a class way back in February using the lovely Bubble Over Stamp Set from the 2018 Occasions Catalogue.  It is also available as a Bundle.  I wanted to show the class that we could use this set for male or female.  You can see the 1st card weBubble-Over-1---Inside created by clicking on this link.

The sentiment has been embossed in Silver Emboss Powder while the background was sponged in Daffodil Delight, Calypso Coral, Bermuda Bay & Lemon Lime Twist Inks.  The bottles were die cut with the Bottles & Bubbles Framelits & sponged with the same colours as the background.  They were flicked with a little water using my fingertips.

The Eclipse Technique is available to download by clicking on the Free Technique Christmas-InsideTutorials Page.  Print it out, 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.

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.

Oh, So Eclectic

Oh-So-Eclectic--Jenny---Clo

G’Day Stampers,

Today’s card is one I created for a friend who celebrated her 60th birthday last week.  Thanks to Jenni’s dress for the inspiration!

I must apologise for not having a tutorial for you to download but I will try & remember how I created it.  First up, I’ve used the Oh So Eclectic Bundle which includes the Oh So Eclectic Stamp Set & the Eclectic Layers Thinlits.

To create my card I sponged a piece of Whisper White CS with Crushed Curry, Night ofOh-So-Eclectic---Jenny---In Navy & Elegant Eggplant Inks using a Stamping Sponge.  This piece was then adhered behind a piece of Whisper white CS which had been die cut using the Eclectic Layers Thinlits.  It was then layered onto a piece of Crushed Curry CS & then to the Base Card – Elegant Eggplant.

The large flower was stamped onto a piece of Whisper White CS in Memento Tuxedo Black Ink before applying Elegant Eggplant Ink with a Sponge Dauber.  The inner petals were highlighted with Night of Navy Ink using a Blender Pen before finishing off with Clear Wink of Stella & die cutting with the matching die from Eclectic Layers Thinlits.

Oh-So-Eclectic-Jenny-Close-The 2 flowers were once again stamped onto a piece of Whisper White CS.  The first flower was lightly shaded with Crushed Curry Ink using a Sponge Dauber.  Again, the lower inner petals were highlighted with Crushed Curry & a Blender Pen before being die cut with the matching die from the Oh So Eclectic Thinlits & Clear Wink of Stella applied.

I used the same technique for the 2nd flower but this time using Night of Navy & Elegant Eggplant Inks.

The leaves were die cut with the Eclectic Layers Thinlits from a piece of Whisper White before Garden Green Ink applied with a Sponge Dauber.

The flowers & leaves were arranged onto the Card Front before being adhered with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  The sentiment is from the Bunch of Blossoms Stamp Set & has been stamped direct onto the Card Front in Memento Tuxedo Black.

To complete the card I scattered Regals Candy Dots (retired) around the Card Front.  You could easily replace the Dots with current products & colouring with the Stampin’ Blends.

I’m happy to say Jenni loved her card & hopefully you do too.

Until next time, Happy Stampin’
