Happy Birthday

I have a couple of customers who are starting to purchase our Ink Refills so I thought it would be 20170622_090035blog-insideperfect to start showcasing ways we can use our Refills instead of just for our Ink Pads.  Gotta love it when you can get multiple uses from products.

I actually cased (copy & share everything) this card from Pinterest & thought it the perfect way to use the “Shaving Cream” Technique on our card.  Thank you Jan for your inspiration.

You may have noticed that Stampin’ Up! have brought out a new Background Stamp in the new Catalogue called “Marbled”.  It gives the marbling effect on your cards, but as I said I wanted to showcase the Refills to create the same effect.

I am still loving the Best Bird Stamp Set & will admit with all the new product being showcased I haven’t played with this set for a little while.  It has the coordinating Birds & Blooms Thinlits to match it & does make like so much easier.

The sponged circle is from a small piece of left over Textured Whisper White that has been sitting in my drawer for so long that was driving me crazy so I just had to use it…….  The bird was coloured using our Sponge Daubers.

To place your order from the Catalogue or to Junepurchase items to create this card, pop on over to my Online Shop.  Don’t forget to use June’s Host Code to receive a gift from me.

Until next time, Happy Stampin’

Technique Treats

Today I am sharing with you one of the cards created for our Technique Treats way back in March 2016.  It is using the lovely little “Easter Lamb” Stamp from the 2016 Occasions

March 2017 Technique Treats

Catalogue.  You could easily swap it out for a more current stamp set along with a different sentiment or greeting & it would be a whole new card.

 

To create my background I used Pear Piazzazz & Soft Sky Re-Inkers, but again you can easily change your colours to suit your card.  Spray shaving Cream onto a Paper Plate, Alfoil or Photo Copy Paper before randomly adding drops of Pear Pizzazz & Soft Sky Re-Inkers into the Shaving Cream & swirl through with the Simply Scored Tool being carful not to mix too much.

Place a piece of Shimmery White CS into the Shaving Cream until all CS is covered.  You could do more pieces if you want so that you can use them at a later date.  Wipe excess off with a Tissue.  Use the piece for your card background or run it through the Big Shot with a Die.

If you head on over to the Technique Treats Page, you will find another Tutorial using the same Technique along with heaps of other fun Technique Tutorials.  You also receive separate instructions for your Techniques which means you are able to file in a folder & keep for later.

Until next time, Happy Stampn’

I love Techniques.  I love doing Techniques!  I love playing & creating different effects from Techniques!  Yep, I love my Techniques!

My card today is one I created using one of the Techniques from the “Technique Treats” from last month – Shaving March-TTCream.  If you are not sure what this is all about, be sure to head on over to our page by clicking on “Technique Treats“.  We’ve had a lot of positive feedback about these Treats & the ladies seem to love them!

I created my card from a piece of Card (with the Shaving Cream Technique already done) which has been sitting on my desk for about a month.  I was determined to use it.

Until next time, Happy Stampin’
