Truly Tailored

Truly-Tailored-Launch---Clo

You saw photos of my Launch Display a couple of days ago so today I am sharing a quick make & take we created on the day using product from the “True Gentleman” Suite, Page 44 of the 2018 Occasions Catalogue.  I’ve used different elements of the Suite – Truly Tailored Stamp Set, True Gentleman DSP, Night of Navy Corduroy Ribbon & the Tailored Tag Punch.

You may recognize the design as I’ve case’d it from the sample in the Catalogue except I’ve turned it into a greeting card using the Very Vanilla Note Cards & Envelopes.

I cut a piece of the Night of Navy Ribbon, adhered it across the middle of the DSP, tucking the ends behind.  I cut the ends of a piece of Emerald Envy CS into a banner shape before adhering to the top of the Ribbon.  You could also use the Banner Triple Punch to do this.

The sentiment was stamped onto a piece of Very Vanilla CS in Night of Navy before being punched with the Tailored Tag Punch & adhered to the top of the Emerald Envy Banner.

Five minutes later you have yourself the perfect card for the male in your life.

Until next time, Happy Stampin’

G’Day Stampers,

It’s been awhile, but I’m happy to say that Technique Tuesday is back again this year.

We’re playing with Brushos today & showing you a basic way of using them.  Mind you, you will still have a fantastic result just the same.  Remember, if you don’t have the product I’ve used on my card, use what you have on hand.

This is one of the cards we created a couple of weeks ago in our class.  The ladies loved playing with them especially when they saw how the powders reacted to water & how everyone’s card turned out very different.  Have you tried them yet?Basic-Sponging---4-per-page

There is a little change this year in that they may only appear the 4th Tuesday of the month.  Yes, you will still receive the 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.

Launch Party

G’Day Stampers,

I’m a little late in getting this post to you, but “better late than never”.Cat-Launch

Yesterday I had a Launch Party to celebrate the new 2018 Occasions & Sale-A-Bration Catalogues.  It was a fun afternoon, with lots of laughter, talking & drinking cups of tea & water – as it was quiet warm but not like it has been!

I showcased just some of the products available in these 2 catalogues including cards I had created ready for our upcoming classes.  I’m happy to say that I am about 2 months in front for ALL my classes.  I’m even more happy that I haven’t cased any of them as I had done them over the Christmas Holidays when I had received my preorder.  Gotta be happy with that hey!

I did have other areas showcasing different product & creations but forgot to take pics.

Until next time, Happy Stampin’

Heartfelt Blooms

Today I am again 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 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’m #21!

I created a simple set of cards using the lovely Note Cards & Envelopes using the gorgeous Heartfelt Blooms Stamp Set.  The set is from Sale-A-BrationHeartfelt-Blooms---Island-I & can be yours when you spend $AUD90.

Card #1 – The gorgeous flower was stamped direct onto a Note Card top left hand corner in Island Indigo Ink.  I then stamped it twice onto a piece of Whisper White CS in each corner before layering it onto a piece of Island Indigo CS & then to the Base Card.  The sentiment is from the same set (loving the font in this set) & stamped in Island Indigo.

Heartfelt-Booms---Rose-RedTo complete the card I scattered a couple of Pearl Basic Jewels around the front.

Card #2 – The card has been created the same way except I’ve used Rose Red Ink & CS.

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 –

Butterflies

G’Day Stampers,

If you remember I shared with you a couple of cards created using the flower from the  lovely Beautiful Day Stamp Set now available in the 2018 Occasions Catalogue.  Well today, I am sharing the remaining couple of cards created using the same set but this time round I’ve used the gorgeous butterfly.

Card #1 – I stamped the butterfly in Memento Tuxedo Black ink direct onto the Note Card.  I then stamped a 2nd butterfly onto scrap Whisper White & coloured with theBeautiful Day, Stampin' Blends, Washi Tape, 2018 Occasions Catalogue Stampin’ Blends – Pink Pirouette, Daffodil Delight & Night of Navy.  It is a little bright but I think the Pink tones it down a little.  The butterfly was fussy cut & adhered over the stamped butterfly with Stampin’ Dimensionals under the wings to pop them up a little.

I applied Basic Pack 2 Washi Tape down the left hand side & across the bottom of the card.

To finish the card I randomly scattered Pearl Basic Jewels.

Beautiful-Day-5Card #2 – Has been created exactly the same way except I’ve randomly stamped the small group of flowers in Pool Party, used the Basic Pack 3 Washi Tape down the left hand side & along the bottom.

The butterfly has been coloured with the Stampin’ Blends – Pool Party, Daffodil Delight & Calypso Coral.  Not as bright as the first card but I’m happy with it just the same.

Again it was fussy cut before adhering over the stamped butterfly on the Note Card with Stampin’ Dimensionals under the wings to pop them a little.  Pearl Basic Jewels were randomly scattered around the card to finish it off.

Global Design #120

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.
