Have a Birthday Brew

Bubble-Over-3---Close-Up

I love it when Stampin’ Up! bring out fantastic products especially Bundles which is what I have used for my card today.  In fact it is one of our cards we created a couple of weeks ago in our Creative Cards Class.  The Bubbles Over Bundle is from the 2018 Occasions Catalogue & includes the Bubble Over Stamp Set & the Bottles & Bubbles Framelits.

We’ve water washed the background using Shimmery White CS.  I love the washed out Bubble-Over-3---Insidebackgrounds for my cards.  It is an easy way to create easy & simple ways to give a bit of a wow to your cards.  In fact, you can find a free tutorial for this Technique by clicking on the Free Technique Tutorials & download a choice of 3 including a tutorial for a card.

Yes, if you are a SU! Demo, then you 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.

G’Day Stampers,

I’m a little behind in sharing my class cards with you so over the next couple of days & weeks, I will be posting our cards we’ve been creating in class.

My card today is the 2nd one we created a few weeks ago using the cute Party Pandas Stamp Set from Sale-A-Bration.  You can see the 1st one by clicking here.  I took myParty-Pandas-Bermuda-Bay-In inspiration from a number of cards found on Pinterest.

The background has been created with Bermuda Bay, Lemon Lime Twist & Daffodil Delight Inks along with the Aqua Painter & Watercolour Paper.

Magical Day

Magical-Day-Close-Up---Brus

Last week I challenged our FB Group to create a male card using the sketch provided.  I thought it would be a great way to get their creative juices flowing & even use it for a class or demonstration.  This is my take on the sketch.

I love the Magical Day Stamp Set in the 2018 Occasions Catalogue.  The set could be used for so many different occasions, big kids & little kids.  I teamed it up with the #12---2018coordinating Myths & Magic Specialty DSP which is nearly too lovely to cut into, but cut into it I did!

The dragon has been die cut from the Specialty DSP using the Magical Mates Framelits, highlighted a little with the Old Olive Stampin’ Blends before being adhered to the circle with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

The background was created with the Gamboge & Yellow Brushos – love these Powders – by spritzing Shimmery White with water & tapping Brushos directly over the CS, allowing it to spread & setting aside to dry.

The circle is Very Vanilla & was sponged with Daffodil Delight & Tangerine Tango Inks.  I Magical-Day-Inside---Brushospritzed a tiny amount of water over the sponged area before tapping very lighting with the Gamboge Brusho.

The sentiment was stamped onto Very Vanilla in Memento Tuxedo Black Ink, fussy cut & once again sponged with Daffodil Delight & Tangerine Tango Inks.

Congratulations

My post today is one I did for a challenge but forgot to post AND I actually forgot the challenge it was meant for but thought I would sharePetal-Passion---Powder-Pink with you anyway.  Does that ever happen to you?

 As I’m a little hooked on the Petal Passion DSP from the 2018 Occasion Catalogue & I had a half finished project on my desk, I decided to continue with it & see what it ends up like.  I teamed the DSP with the coordinating Petal Palette Stamp Set along with Powder Pin CS & Stampin’ Blends of Old Olive, Rich Razzleberry & Pink Pirouette.

Best Wishes for the Season

Holly-Berry-Happiness-1---C

My post today is going to be short (on the way out the door) but a card which was created a little while ago but never shared.  Anyhow, it is always to get an early start on your  Christmas cards.

It is using the gorgeous Merry Little Christmas DSP from the 2017 Holiday Catalogue (retired).  I’ve teamed it up with the Holly Berry Happiness Stamp Set along with the Holly Berry Builder Punch.  I must say I used this set a lot last year & seemed to be my go to set for Christmas.

If you click on the link below, you will be able to download a free tutorial to create your own card.  The card can be used for any occasion so all you have to do is change out the stamp & DSP.

Until next time, Happy Stampin’

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 –

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.

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.
