Pretty Pattern Papers

As our next lot of “Pretty Pattern Papers ” Tutorial is coming up this Saturday, I thought I would share with you a card created from one of the sketches.

Pretty Pattern Papers is all about using that stash of DSP you have hiding in the back of your cupboard or sitting on your shelves just waiting to be used but your afraid to cut into it.

Let’s face it, we all have heaps of DSP in our stash just waiting to be used.  Some of us are 1.2  Aprilnot sure how to use it, but we love it!  Others of us just don’t want to cut into it, we love it too much!  The result – even though we keep buying it because it is just so pretty & we have to have it, it goes into that pile in the cupboard for a “rainy day”, never to be used or to see the light of day!

Well, Pretty Pattern Papers is what will help you to use that DSP Stash.  In the middle of each month, we release Pretty Pattern Papers  showcasing a sketch & 3 cards created from the sketch, all using your one lot of DSP.   The tutorial includes Measurements – Imperil & Metric plus Measurements for all 3 cards.  The sketches are able to be used over & over.

My card uses product from this year’s SAB – Wildflower Fields – BUT you are able to change it out with one of the new DSP from the current catalogue.  In fact, if you check back in a couple of days, you will see the same card created with different Papers.

For more information, be sure to check out our Pretty Pattern Papers Page.

Until next time, Happy Stampin’

Thinking of you at Christmas

Our 2nd card last Sunday was still playing with the new “Hearth & Home” Thinlits, but used in a different way.   So many ideas, so little time.  The ladies loved this card & thought it very different to the first one we created.

We played with our Heat & Stick Powder, along with Dazzling Diamonds Glitter by using it on our sky to create little, tiny sparkling stars.  Not sure if you are able to see the shine, but when the card moves certain ways, it lights up.  We also randomly scattered small Rhinestones around the card, just to give it a little more shine.

This class is going to be repeated in November, so be sure to check out the Classes/Workshops for dates & times.

Until next time, Happy Stampin!

Merry & Bright

In our Technique Class last Sunday we played with the fantastic Hearth & Home Thinlits  These are sold as a bundle which include the Stamp Set – Happy Scenes.  The stamps are small enough to go behind the window.  We used the fantastic all occasions “Lovely as a Tree“.

I will admit when I first saw these Thinlits Dies I saw an old bush gate……. and my mind started thinking……  I even managed to make it a little rustic & worn – just like the gate out home.  So of course, to go with the gate, I had to create a real bush Christmas Card.

I still think I went a little overboard on the stars but out home the stars are really that bright.  After I had completed the card, I then realised that I should have created the Milky Way!  Mind you, I went a little green with the green too as it is very dry out west & they are still in one of the worse droughts since the 60’s, so I’ve been told.  There isn’t even any dust left on the land for the wind to pick up.

Again, this class is going to be repeated in November.  Be sure to check back at a later for the dates.

Until next time, Happy Stampin’

Lovely as a Tree # 2

G’day Stampers,

This is our 2nd card using this great stamp set.

To create the scene, we created a mask for the slope & the moon.  We sponged the sky with Marina Mist, Soft sky & Night of Navy.  The masks were then removed & the tall tree was stamped in Night of Navy.  The trees were stamped direct onto the CS once & then again without re-inking.  The piece was the adhered to a piece of Whisper White CS.

Silver Ribbon was adhered across the bottom prior to adhering to Base Card – Night of Navy.  We stamped “Merry Christmas” onto a scrap piece of Whisper White CS using the stamp set “Good Greetings” – was on special & in Night of Navy Ink.  After randomly cutting around the wording, we adhered to the top of the Ribbon with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  A small bow was tied & adhere to the card with Glue Dots.

To finish the card, we randomly applied Dazzling Details to the sky so that it looked a little bit like twinkling stars.

Very simple card but one I think that has a bit of a WOW about it!
