Global Stampin’ Friends Blog Hop

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.

By clicking on the link above the photo, you will be able to download a free tutorial to create your own version.  The tutorial includes a list of products used, measurements (metric & imperial) plus a tutorial for the card.

Until next time, Happy Stampin’

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!

Magical Day #2

Magical-Day-1---Close-Up

Today I am sharing with you our 2nd card we created yesterday using the  Magical Day Bundle from the 2018 Occasions Catalogue.

The Bundle includes the Magical Day Stamp Set & the Magical Mates Framelits.  We Magical-Day-1---Insideteamed it up with the lovely & oh so gorgeous Myths & Magic Specialty Washi Tape.

This Bundle is retiring at the end of May so best to grab it while you can.

Magical Day

Magical-Day-Suite---Close-U

I created this card when the 2018 Occasions Catalogue come out.  It was planned for one of our classes but never thought we would get round to creating it.  Well today is the day as we are finally going to create using the Magical Day Bundle.

As well as the Bundle which includes the Magical Day Stamp Set & the Magical Mates Magical-Day-Suite---InsideFramelits, I wanted to showcase the gorgeous Myths & Magic Specialty Washi Tape which has lots of sparkle to it.   Unfortunately this is one of the sets retiring at the end of June so it is best you grab it now before it is gone & gone forever.

Be sure to check back in a couple of days to see the card for the girls using the same Bundle.

Just Getting Started Bundle

Love-what-You-Do-3---Close-

G’Day Stampers,

A couple of days ago I shared with you a card I cased from the Just Getting Started Bundle which is perfect for you for that exact reason – if you are just getting started!  Today is another card created using the same Bundle.  Don’t you love it when you can create different cards but using the same supplies except for a little change here & there?

Included in this Bundle is the Love What You Do Stamp Set, Old Olive Ink, Grapefruit Love-What-You-Do-3---InsideGrove Ink (new In Colour), Clear Block E, Very Vanilla Cardstock AND Very Vanilla Note Cards & Envelopes.  All I’ve done is scattered a few Pearl Basic Jewels around the front & added a small bow using Linen Thread.

The above products will be available once the new catalogue goes live, but the Bundle will not!

I have actually created this card as part of the CASEing Tuesday challenge which is new to me.  Last week it was the card on Page 37 of the Annual Catalogue.  Don’t forget to use your catalogues for inspiration.  You will be amazed at what you can create.

Birthday Blossoms

Birthday-Blooms-1---Close-U

Today’s card is one of the many we created over a month in our class when we played with the Retifom Techniquewhich you can find the tutorial here.

The class was split into pairs which mean we worked on 4 lots of cards at once.  I thought it would be utter chaos but much to my surprise it worked our perfectly & we seemed to fly through the classes in record time.Birthday-Blooms-1---Inside

We used a few of the retiring In Colours to create our card – Emerald Envy & Peekaboo Peach Inks & Cardstock.

This technique is a little addictive as each time you play you will end up with a different look which is what happened in our classes.

Love What You Do

Love-What-You-Do-2---Close-

G’Day Stampers,

I certainly hope all the mums in Australia had a lovely Mother’s Day yesterday.

Today’s card is one that I’ve cased from the Share What You Love Suite which is the Just Getting Started BundleOf course, I added my own spin on it but you could always add extras with what you have in your own stash.

This card & Bundle prove that you don’t have to have a lot of product to create pretty Love-what-You-Do-2---Insidecards.  Best thing about the Bundle is that the Love What You Do Stamp Set, Grapefruit Grove (new In Colour) & Old Olive Inks plus Very Vanilla Cardstock, Very Vanilla Note Cards (1 of my favourites) & even a Clear Block to get you started are all included.

Advantages of this Pre-Order include having one of the new In Colours early so that you can out the new style ink pad & new catalogue product early.  Who doesn’t love that?.

Although the products will be available once the new catalogue goes live, the Bundle will not!

I have another card to share with you using the same Bundle so be sure to pop back in a few days.
