Ahoy There

Have you heard the news?

Stampin’ Up! have given us 8 more items for the remaining of 2017 SAB.  How good is6.1 Ghosting - Juy that?

To celebrate the new release I thought I would share a card from our July 2016 Technique Treats using the “Seaside” Embossing Folder which is 1 of the FREE items when placing a $90.00 order up until 31 March 2017.

It is also showcasing the Ghosting Technique“.  If you haven’t played with this technique, you don’t know how much fun it can be.

I’ve actually used “By the Shore” Suite, Page 93 of the Annual Catalogue.  Don’t you love it when everything coordinates?  Along with the “Seaside” EF, there is the matching “By the Shore” DSP, Dapper Denim Ribbon, “By the Shore” CS Pack & not forgetting the lovely “Seaside Shore” Stamp Set.  Be sure to check them out.

To see another card using this technique, head on over to the Technique Page to purchase your July Technique.

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’

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’

I’m happy to say our next lot of Technique Treats are alive for you to purchase.  You will adore these cards.  We are playing at creating our own Marbled Paper using Shaving Cream & Marbles.  Well, in my case Sinkers, as I don’t have any Marbles, but I do have heaps of fishing gear. Just goes to show you can compromise with what you have on hand.

Thank you everyone for your patience, it has been very much appreciated & thank you to those of you who emailed me with your good wishes.  They were very much appreciate too.

I would also like to take the time to thank everyone who purchased our treats last month.  Naomi & I were blown away. I’m not sure whether it was the Techniques or Stamp Set but either way, thank you.

This month we are playing with the lovely “Falling in Love” Stamp Set from the 2017 Occasions Catalogue.  This set is perfect for all occasions, eg wedding, engagement, anniversary or just because.  As I’ve said, you will love the cards created using the Techniques & the Stamp Set.

Don’t forget all our Technique Treats are perfect if you want to play 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 Teats Page to purchase your Treat.

Wedding Wishes

I have been missing in action the last week or 2 but am feeling up to doing a little today.  While the going is good, I thought I would also try a little post.  It is also a challenge from our FB Page to do an extra blog this week.  Well, seeing as though I set the challenge, I felt I had to play along.

As I don’t have a card created (still not creating), I thought I would start sharing some of our cards we have created for our Technique Treats – #1 Collection.  In saying that I will only be sharing 1 or 2 from each collection.  You are still able to purchase the tutorials for the posted card along with the other cards in the collection by heading over to the “Technique Treats” Page.

My first card is one we did way back in February 2016 when the 2016 Occasions Catalogue come out.  It has been created using the lovely “Rose Wonder” Stamp Set along with the coordinating “Rose Garden” Framelits.  The technique is “Re-Inkers” – perfect for getting more use from your Re-Inkers.

I also used the Layering Squares Framelits along with the gorgeous Neutrals Paper StackBasic Black which pops the Flower.

Until next time, Enjoy!

Falling Flowers

G’day Friends,

It has seemed like forever since my last post, so fingers crossed, I will be posting again  as from this week.

I thought I would share with you a card I did for my friend & downline some time ago.20160911_103016_resizedblog  Naomi held her very first Workshop way back in early October & it was a huge success.  Good on you Naomi.  Bring on 2017!

Sorry there is no tutorial for you to print today as the card was rushed off in the mail the day I created it.  I am going to try & remember what I did from the photo, so please be kind to me.

I used the “Ghosting” Technique on the panel of my card which is Technique Treat #6.

I randomy stamped the large image from the “Falling Flowers” Stamp Set onto a piece of Whisper White Card in VersaMark Ink allowing it to dry a little. With a Stamping Sponge, I sponged a piece of Whisper White Card with Melon Mambo, Daffodil Delight & Pumpkin Pie Inks before adhering to a panel of Basic Black Card.  The piece was layered onto a piece of Whisper White before layering onto the Base Card – Basic Black.

I stamped the Flower Images & the Leaf Images onto scraps of Whisper White in Memento Tuxedo Ink, coloured them with my Blender Pen using Melon Mambo, Pumpkin Pie, Daffodil Delight & Old Olive Inks.  The were then die cut with the coordinating “May Flowers” Framelits by running through the Big Shot before adhering to the Card Front with Stampin’ Dimensionals & Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

From memory I may have even gone over the flowers with the Clear Wink of Stella to give it a lift.

It is a very simple card but I think with the sponged panel it gives it a “WOW” factor.

Until next time, Happy Stampin’
