Happy Birthday

I have a couple of customers who are starting to purchase our Ink Refills so I thought it would be 20170622_090035blog-insideperfect to start showcasing ways we can use our Refills instead of just for our Ink Pads.  Gotta love it when you can get multiple uses from products.

I actually cased (copy & share everything) this card from Pinterest & thought it the perfect way to use the “Shaving Cream” Technique on our card.  Thank you Jan for your inspiration.

You may have noticed that Stampin’ Up! have brought out a new Background Stamp in the new Catalogue called “Marbled”.  It gives the marbling effect on your cards, but as I said I wanted to showcase the Refills to create the same effect.

I am still loving the Best Bird Stamp Set & will admit with all the new product being showcased I haven’t played with this set for a little while.  It has the coordinating Birds & Blooms Thinlits to match it & does make like so much easier.

The sponged circle is from a small piece of left over Textured Whisper White that has been sitting in my drawer for so long that was driving me crazy so I just had to use it…….  The bird was coloured using our Sponge Daubers.

To place your order from the Catalogue or to Junepurchase items to create this card, pop on over to my Online Shop.  Don’t forget to use June’s Host Code to receive a gift from me.

Until next time, Happy Stampin’

Congratulations

Before we get into my card today, I just wanted to say that I created it for 2 challenges but then forgot to post it.  As a result, 1 of the challenges closed which is the layout of the card,Challenge but that is ok as I am still happy with the card & it made it easy for me to create my card.

The challenge over at Sunday Stamps was to use “Shades of Blue” along with a pop of green & grey.  I will admit that I don’t use these colours together very often but when I do, I love them!  It is always good to create outside your comfort zone, so thank you Sunday Stamps for a great challenge..

Don’t forget, if you click above the photo you will be able to download a free tutorial to create your own card.  The tutorial includes Supplies & Measurements (Imperial & Metric).

Until next time, Happy Stampin’

Congratulations

G’day Stampers,

Today’s card is one I created using one of the sketches from our Pretty Pattern Papers (check out the Page above) Tutorials.

Last week I shared with you a card using the same sketch & as it turned out, I was asked to create card using Pinks, White & Browns for a special occasion.

As I wanted to use the same layout from the one I shared last week, I decided to go with the Bloomin’ Love Stamp Set along with the Bloomin’ Heart Thinlits & of course the matching Love Blossoms DSP (retired).

I updated it by changing out the circle to squares by using the Layered Squares Framelits (loving these…), embossing a piece of Blushing Bride Card & adding Pearls.  Actually, to be truthful, I found the piece of Blushing Bride already cut to size & embossed so it was sort of easy to go from there.

For a Free Tutorial, along with Measurements – Imperial & Metric as well as Supplies, please click on the link above the photo.

Until next time, Happy Stampin’

Happy Birthday

For today’s card I’ve used the “Best Birds Bundle” again!  I just can’t seem to get enough of this gorgeous Bundle.  There are so many gorgeous Bundles & Dies in Stampin’ Up!’s new #1---JuneCatalogue that I just can’t seem to decide which to purchase.  It is a case of wanting it all NOW!!!!!

I started off taking my inspiration from P52 of the Catalogue but then started to go along with the Sketch from last month.

If you haven’t tried using this simple sketch to create any cards, be sure to give it a go.  I am having heaps of fun using the sketch AND it has helped me get back into creating once again.

142315SWhen I first saw this Stamp Set, it reminded of Cherry Blossoms for some reason .  After using it a number of times I am now seeing small Frangipanis too.  Is anyone else seeing this?

Until next time,  Happy Stampin’

Bloomin’ Heart

I saw a card when looking for something else on the internet the other day & loved the way the card had been created using DSP & Card in a Mosaic way.  After tracing it back to the original post, I would like to thank Kelly for sharing it her wonderful card.

This is a perfect way to use some of your DSP.  You can have as many pieces of DSP or Card as you like to create your own version of the card.  I decided to use just 2 pieces of DSP along with 1 coordinating Card for my mosaic.  Creating your card this way, you are able to create 3 more cards using the same Card & DSP.

The Mosaic Card fits in perfectly with our Pretty Pattern Papers whereby we encourage you to use all that gorgeous DSP you have sitting in your cupboard & not a game to cut into it.  Be sure to click on the link to purchase any of the tutorials available.

Don’t forget, by clicking on the link below, you are able to download a Free Tutorial to create your own card.  It also includes all the supplies I’ve used plus the measurements.

Until next time, Happy Stampin’
