Kylie’s International Blog Highlights

It is that time again where I am once again playing along with Kylie’s International Blog Highlights which is so much fun.  This month our theme is Gratitude inspired by Thailand!

What is Kylie’s International Highlights?   It is where Demonstrators from all around the world take part in a monthly Blog Highlight.  It’s a great way to get to know other Demonstrators & see projects using current Stampin’ Up!® product.  Each month Kylie has a different theme so we get to play with different product.

Vote for Me HereWhat is so different about this Blog Highlight?  YOU get to vote for your top 5 favourites.  The top ten will then get to take part in an international blog hop with Kylie & other talented successful demonstrators.

What do I do?  All you have to do is click on the “Vote for Me” photo at the side or head on over to Kylie’s Blog, click on the heart in the top right hand side of the picture.

Can I leave comments?  Sure you can.  Once you have voted, click on any picture & comment on those that you really love.  You know how bloggers love to read your comments.

My card was one I had started playing with a couple of weeks ago & has been sitting on my desk in bits & pieces for a couple of weeks now.  Instead of starting from scratch I challenged myself to use what I had started so I sat down & then bang, it hit me.  The Wood-Words---close-upflowers from the “Wood Words” Stamp Set were perfect as they remind me of Thailand.  The colours I didn’t have to change at all as I had gone with Berry Burst & Lemon Lime Twist Inks & Card & I think they are the perfect colours……

I do hope all the Demonstrators who have earned the Thailand Incentive Trip are enjoying themselves as it is such a lovely country.

There is a free tutorial on how I created my card by clicking on the link below.  It gives you all the product used plus the measurements (metric & imperial).

Don’t forget to head on over to Kylie’s Blog to check out all the lovely cards that have been created & to vote for your favourites.  I’m #17 (just in case you are looking).

Until next time, Happy Stampin’

One of the perks of being a Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator is being able to pre-order items 20170530_143734blog-close-ufrom the new Catalogue which means my team was able to create swaps using new products.

Today I am sharing with you one of the lovely cards created by Naomi using the gorgeous “Happy Birthday” Bundle which includes the “Happy Birthday Gorgeous” Stamp Set & the matching “Happy Birthday” Thinlits Die.  Don’t you just love it?

The card also features the lovely new “Colour Theory” DSP Stack.  I can see this stack being very popular with everyone.

It’s Your Day” has been Heat Embossed using the Whisper White Emboss Powder.

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.

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’
