Merry & Bright

Hearts-Come-Home-1---Close-

This is one of the cards we created in our “Cards @ Toogoom” class last Friday.  The ladies loved it – simple but with a bit of a WOW when you open it, as it has a Pop Up Gift Card Holder inside.  We actually created one similar to this one a couple of years ago in our Technique Class.  It is always good to revisit older creations & revamp them.  Mind you, with the DSP we used on our card, you could use it for any occasion – just omit Santa, the trees & change out the sentiment.

Be Merry DSP is from the 2017-2018 Annual Catalogue while the stamp set “Hearts Come Hearts-Come-Come---Gift-CarHome” is from the 2017 Holiday Catalogue.  The stamp set is also available in a Bundle.

You can find the free tutorial for the card & the holder inside by clicking on the link below which includes all measurements (metric & imperial) as well as a list of supplies used to create by card.

Be sure to check back in a couple of days as I have another Gift Card Holder to share with you.

Until next time, Happy Stampin’

Let’s Celebrate Your Day

Bunch-of-Blossoms-1---Close

I’ve been quite on my blog for a little – family stuff going on but hopefully I can find my creative side once again & get back into my regular blogging.

To begin with, I cased a sketch from a challenge, didn’t get it posted in time but thought I would share it with you anyhow.  It is a very simple card but one I hope will inspire you.  I’ve kept lots of white on the card as I wanted the colours to be the WOW factor.Bunch-of-Blossoms-1---Insid  In fact, the card could be used for a number of occasions.

I’ve used the lovely “Bunch of Blossoms” Stamp Set along with the corresponding Blossom Builder Punch.   I wanted to create something bright & happy which is why I’ve used Daffodil Delight & Old Olive Inks.  As I wanted lots of white to highlight the colours, I opted for Chocolate Chip & Whisper White CS – love these colours together.

By clicking on the link below you are able to download a free tutorial to create your own card or just use the layout.  It includes all the measurements (metric & imperial) along November-2017with a list of products.

Stampin’ Blends are Here….

You've-Got-This-1---Close-U

By now you are probably aware that Stampin’ Blends are now available for everyone.  I have to say that I am loving them & so will you!

My card is one I sent off in the mail yesterday to thank a friend (one I went to school with & haven’t seen for many years) for a special service we attended a couple of days ago.  I do hope she likes it!

The card has actually been cased from Page 10I of the Annual Catalogue.  Mind you, it You've-Got-This-1---Insidedoesn’t look anything like the original but it was a good starting point as I wanted it to be happy & bright, plus I wanted to play with the Stampin’ Blends.

To create my card, I used the Light Calypso Coral to colour the flowers followed by the Dark Daffodil Delight & then the Light Daffodil Delight.  I’m loving how they turned out.  The leaves were created using the leaf image from Painted Harvest & punched with the coordinating Leaf Punch.  Both are available in the 2017 Holiday Catalogue & are available as a Bundle.

Although I have used a couple of items that have retired (easily replaced by current product) I’m very happy with my card today, but please let me know what you think.

If you click on the link above the card, you will be able to download a tutorial so that you can create your own.  It includes all the measurements (metric & imperial) along November-2017with a list of products.

G’Day Stampers,

My card today is the 2nd card we created a couple of weeks ago when we were playing with the Technique – Bleaching.  Once I start on techniques, I can’t seem to get enough of them.  Can’t you tell I love my techniques.

I love the card today – not sure why.  It could be the simple layout out or the way the Bleach has reacted to Melon Mambo or even the Basic Black behind the Melon Mambo.

Don’t forget to grab your Technique Tutorial, head on over to the Technique Page where you have 3 options for downloading.

Half Full

Half-Full-1---Close-Up

G’Day Stampers,

My card today is one we are creating in Cards @ Toogoom today using the Half Full Stamp Set which is available in the 2017 Holiday Catalogue.  It took me a little time to grab this one as I wasn’t too sure if I would like it or not BUT I LOVE it!  In fact I know quite a few ladies that would just love this set & card…..  Fingers crossed the ladies today do too.

I actually took my inspiration from a card I saw on Pinterest but made it my own, sortHalf-Full-1---Inside of!  Thank you so much Amanda for your inspiration.

The Whisper White is actually Shimmery White & has been embossed using the Holly EF before being layered onto a piece of Pool Party CS & then to the Base Card – Sahara Sand.  As I am a lover of non-traditional colours for Christmas, I am actually loving these colours together & may have to play more with them.  Pink Pirouette & Sahara Sand also spring to mind.

Half-Full-1

May Your Sorrow…

… be eased by Wonderful Memories

Birthday-Blooms---Close-Up

I created this card for a friend of mine lost her brother in a fishing accident a couple of weeks ago.  They are not the best cards to create but we do have to do them sometimes.

I’ve used the new Stampin’ Blends – Rich Razzleberry, Daffodil Delight & Old Olive to colour my flower & leaves.  The image is from the lovely Birthday Blooms Stamp Set.

The image has been stamped onto a piece of Whisper White CS in Memento Tuxedo Black, coloured with the Stampin’ Blends & layered to a piece of Basic Black CS before being adhered to the Base Card – Whisper White, which is in fact a Note Card.

The sentiment is from Better Together & has been stamped onto a scrap piece of Whisper White in Memento Tuxedo Black, punched either end with the Banner Triple Punch before being adhered to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

The card was completed by randomly adhering small Pearl Basic Jewels to the Card Front.

Until next time, Happy Stampin’

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.
