G’Day stampers,

Today I am not only taking part in the very first Blog Hop – Scrapbooking Global – Stampin’ Up! but it is Day 4 of my DSP Showcase.  It is a FB Page for anyone who love SU! Products & who scraps.  There are over 3500 members.  If you love Stampin’ Up! & you love to scrap then why not join us.

Thank you for visiting.  You have just arrived from Jessica’s page which means you are36518126_10216049000962426_604109715940573184_n now half way through the hop.  I do hope you are enjoying the pages that everyone has created & getting lots of ideas.

Our Challenge this month was to create our page using the Sketch Layout.  Easy, right?  Well, I thought so to but for the life of me I’ve had heaps of trouble coming up with a page that I liked.  I think I may have been overthinking things which then creates all sorts of hassles.

Those of you that visit my blog, know that I do layouts for my niece & post them down to her.  Sometimes, they include photos, other times they are just the layouts & she selects the photos.  The journaling is mostly all left blank as I love her to write in her own handwriting.  I think it means more this way.

Anyhow my photo is one of Bon & her brother Jesse who was married in Argentina in April this year.  They are very close which I tried to capture in the layout including the colours in Bon’s dress & the black of Jess’ suite.  I’ve kept my page very simple as I didn’t want to take away from her gorgeous lace dress.  I have been a little loose with my layout Scrapbook---Fun-Times---Cloas it is a little different to the sketch.

I lightly sponged Balmy Blue onto a piece of Whisper White Cardstock before randomly stamping the image from Touches of Texture & a piece of the Delightfully Detailed Laser-Cut Specialty Paper was adhered top right hand corner.  This paper suited her dress perfectly!

The photo was mounted onto a piece of Whisper White Cardstock. The journaling area is a piece of Whisper White with a piece of the Specialty Paper adhered to the top & let hang over a little.

The 2 hearts were die cut from Balmy Blue & Basic Black Cardstock using the Sunshine Wishes Thinlits & adhered to a piece of Whisper White Cardstock.

The “love” was die cut from Basic Black using the same Framelits & adhered to a piece of Whisper White.  All 4 pieces of Whisper White were then adhered to a square of Basic Black & then to the sponged Whisper White.

The letters were cut from Balmy Blue & Whisper White, adhered onto each other but off centered a little before adhering to the Basic Black Square.  The little butterfly was die cut from Balmy Blue & Whisper White while the subtitle was typed & printed onto a piece of Whisper White, mounted onto a piece of Balmy Blue & then adhered to the page.

Amazing You

Amazing-You---Close-Up

G’Day stampers,

Today I am sharing with you the cards I posted off to my team last week.

A couple of each cards were created using the Celebrate You Thinlits.  They were teamed up with the Delightfully Detailed Laser-Cut Specialty Paper which was randomly cut & Celebrate You Thinlits, Delightfully Detailed Laser-Cut Specialty Paper, Stampin' Up! #celebrateyou #sponging #delightfullydetailedlasercutpaper #teammembers #vickywright #makeacardsendacard #loveitchopit #stampinupadhered to a piece of sponged Whisper White Card.

The Whisper White Card was sponged with Grapefruit Grove & Mango Melody Inks using the Stamping Sponge & adhered to a Base Card of Night of Navy.  All I did to make them a little different was turn the sponging upside down before adhering to the Base Card.

The words were die cut in Night of Navy, Grapefruit Grove & Mango Melody Card before adhering over the top of the Specialty Paper.

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”.

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.

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!

By clicking on the link below, you will be able to download your tutorials to create your own card.

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.

Until next time, Happy Stampin’

Yesterday I shared with you a card using the Eclipse Technique.

Well today, I am sharing another using the same technique but this time round it is a Christmas Card which was created in one of my classes back in February.  Is it too early to make a start on our Christmas cards?

 

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.
