WWYS #112

I found a new challenge blog (new to me) yesterday over at What Will You Stamp?  Theywwys_112_Carousel Birthday list a stamp set to use each challenge which I thought was a little different.  I am just scrapping this card in as the challenge closes in an hour.

This week they are asking that we create a project using the “Carousel Birthday” Stamp Set which is from the 2017 Occasions Catalogue.

For my card I decided to do the “Chalkboard” Technique which I hadn’t done for sometime.  I always love the finished look of this technique.

Thank you for a great challenge & a change to play with this fantastic set once again.  I have created a couple more cards using this set so don’t forget to pop on back to check them out in the next couple of days.

Day 3 – Any Occasion

Today’s post is a little late.  I can’t seem to get my act together even though my card was created way ahead of time.20170329_091110_resizedblog

I’ve used the “Carried Away” DSP along with the “Any Occasion” Stamp Set, both from Sale-a-Bration.   I did get my inspiration from a card on Page 15 of the Catalogue but then used our sketch we have for our team to play with.  I teamed the Stamp Set & DSP with the matching “Up & Away” Framelits from the 2017 Occasions Catalogue.

We only have 3 days left of SAB, so don’t forget to place your order for those goodies that you have been eyeing.  For every $90.00 you spend, you get to choose a FREE Product from SAB.  Contact me to place your order or head over to my Online Shop.  Don’t forget to use this month’s Host Code when placing an order online

Technique Treats #14

This month we are playing with the great techniques of Chalkboard & Shadow Stamping.  If you haven’t had a play with these techniques over the years, this is the perfect time to do so.  This month we have played with our format & made it a little easier for you.

We stuck with the 2017 Occasions Catalogue & teamed the techniques up with the lovely “Carousel BirthdayStamp Set which reminds me so much of the local show with the Ferris Wheel & when the circus came to town with the tent & that gorgeous horse.  In fact, we were always at the grounds of the circus every arvo after school so much so, that they gave us jobs feeding & cleaning the animals.

All 4 cards may be used for Female, Male or for the Kids.

Measurements for all Treats are in Metric & Imperial.  Yep, we cater for everyone no matter where you are in the world.  Supply List includes all Product used to create our cards along with the Item #.

Our Technique Treats are perfect if you want to create in the comfort of your home or if you are a SU! Demonstrator who would love to teach a Technique Class – all the work is done for you!  Just head over to the Technique Treats Page to purchase your Treat.

We would love to hear what you think of the Treats.

Kay (USA) says –  “Thank you so much for making such wonderful tutorials!!!”

Kris (Brisbane) – “Great card and the Technique Treats are really great”.

Until next time, Happy Stampin’

Today is suppose to be the release of our Technique Treats for February but with me being ill the last couple of weeks has put me behind in a lot of things, one of them being our 7-1-emboss-resist-augustTreats.

In the meantime, if you haven’t purchased any of our Treats, please click on the “Technique Treats” Page & do so.  We have lots of lovely techniques just waiting for you to have a play, like the sample shown using the lovely little Stamp Set “Gift from the Garden” or the one below – Watercolouring with Pencils using the gorgeous new “Beautiful You” Stamp Set.

It’s Your Day

I’ve moved & in my new home, but still not able to create at the moment.  Fingers crossed this will change towards the end of the week.

For my card today, I’ve used the Re-Inker Technique & the gorgeous Stamp Set – “Garden in Bloom” & of course the matching “English Garden” DSP.  Actually, this technique was one of our features in our Technique Treats #1 which is still available for purchase by heading over to the Technique Treats Page.

I really love how this card turned out, especially the pretty pink flowers highlighted by the touches of Melon Mambo.

Until next time, Happy Stampin’

Happy Birthday

This is a card created using the Watercolour Technique using Re-Inkers from our Technique Feb-TTTreats #1.  If you haven’t purchased this Treat, be sure to pop over to the Technique Treats Page.

I am loving this card especially with the touches of black with the pops of bright vibrant colours in the background.  No embossed background this time, just whishing the card around on my colour palette.  Not that you are able to see it, but the Tempting Turquoise Card has been Dry Embossed using the Fluttering Embossing Folder

For a little bit extra, I added a Tea Lace Doily down the left hand side & a couple of Basic Black Candy Dots.  The butterfly is all nice & glittery by using the Clear Wink of Stella Pen over the top.

Until next time, Happy Stampin’

Congrats

My card today is one I saw on Pinterest a couple of weeks ago & thought I would give it ago 4  May - TTusing all Stampin’ Up! products.  Thank you Julie for your inspiration.  I love the final result although it is very bright & way out of my comfort zone, but hey that is the great thing about creating & trying new things.

I’ve used Timeless Texture from the 2016 Occasions Catalogue which is due to retire at the end of the month so be quick to get in while you can.  The greeting/sentiment is from Perfect Pairings which was part of SAB 2016 where you could earn it for FREE.

Don’t forget, Sponging & Heat Embossing are our Technique Treats this month, so if you would like to learn how to do these techniques, then pop on over to the Techniques Treats Page to purchase them.  Even if you know how to do the techniques why not refresh your memory.

Happy Birthday

I had a play with the Water Colouring Technique a little while ago & this is the card I come up with.  It took me a little time to get use to the vibrant colour, but I am liking it a lot.

I actually Heat Embossed my Watercolour Paper first using White Embossing Powder & an image from “Birthday Blossoms“.  I then created a colour palette of Watermelon Wonder, Daffodil Delight & Pink Pirouette, sprayed the palette with Water & then dipped my Paper into the palette & whished (is that a word?) it around.

I really think this lovely set has been missed in the Catalogue.

Until next time, Happy Stampin’
