Technique Tuesday

You've-Got-This---Close-Up

G’Day Stampers,

It is Tuesday & that means a new technique for you to download & play with.  Remember, if you don’t have the product I’ve used on my card, use what you have on hand.  This week we are highlighting Bleaching.  What I love about this technique is that it is always changing.  My card has changed a lot since I first created it & not every petal is the same.

This is one of the cards we created a couple of weeks ago in our class.  I am happy to say the ladies loved it.  They also enjoyed playing with the technique too…..  I keep forgetting to take photos to share with you as their cards turned out beautiful.

These techniques appear on my blog every 2nd & 4th Tuesday of the month, along Technique-Layoutwith instructions for a card using the technique.  The Technique Tutorial is available for download by clicking on the Free Technique Tutorials Page, file in a folder & keep on hand to use or to refer back to at a later date.

Yes, SU! Demos are able to use them for your classes, workshops & demonstrations.  It just means that all the work is done for you, except of course your samples.

Flirty-Flowers---Close-Up

G’Day Stampers,

I hope you all had a lovely weekend & did heaps of creating!

Today’s card has been re-created from one I did a month or so ago & have never shared with you.  It is a simple little card but one that I am happy with.  I am not sure whether it is the colours or the cute little Flirty Flowers Stamp Set.

To create today’s card I’ve used the brand new Stampin’ Blends which will be available to everyone 1 November.  Believe me, you will want them in your collection.  They are just wonderful!

I randomly stamped the images direct onto a piece of Whisper White CS in Memento Tuxedo Black Ink before proceeding to colour the main flowers with the Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Blends.  The larger leaves have been coloured with the Old Olive Stampin’ Blends, but very light while the smaller ones I’ve left as they are.

For some of the smaller flowers I’ve used my Blender Pen & Melon Mambo Ink For some reason I love Daffodil Delight & Melon Mambo together especially when you add touches of Basic Black which is what I layered the Whisper White onto before layering onto a Daffodil Delight Base Card.

The sentiment is from Bunch of Blossoms & has been stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black.

Until next time, Happy Stampin’

G’Day Stampers,

I don’t usually write about personal stuff here but I feel that I have to spread the word about organ donations.  It is very important to register, no matter which country you A-Little-Wild---Amberreside in, get yourself & family members talking about it.  Let your family members know your decision.  In Australia & if possible register your wishers online.  You can find out more information by clicking here.

I have been playing a lot with the A Little Wild Bundle & must say I am loving it.  I will be honest & say that it has been sitting on my shelf for a little while now, but so glad that I have finally inked it.  You will love it too.

I saw this card on Pinterest sometime ago & it sort of stuck in my mind.  So thank you Lorri for your inspiration.  I loved the card so much that I created 2.

A-Little-Wild---InsideI’m happy to say that my card went off in the mail at the beginning of the week so my neice should have received it by now.  She loves Poo Bear & this set reminds me of her.

Until next time, Happy Stampin’

G’Day Stampers,

Have you heard the news?

Stampin’ Up!® are releasing new Stampin’ Blends come November 1.  They are alcohol based & come in sets of 2 (dark & light) but you are able to purchase them individually OR you can purchase the Colour Collection.  I love my Alcohol Markers so was pretty happy when I read they were bring back Alcohol Markers.  Once again Stampin’ Up!®  have created a gorgeous product which means you will end up with lovely projects & believe me you will want these Blends in your hands.

Not only are the Blends being released but you will also be able to purchase the Colour Me Happy Project Kit along with the Colour Me Happy Stamp Set which have been created especially for the Stampin’ Blends.  In saying this, the products (not the Stampin’ Blends) will only be available while stocks last.

How do I know this – well, being a Demonstrator gives you a couple of perks & one of them was being able to order the Blends at the beginning of October which gave me time to play & play I have done.  They are very easy to use & blend nicely.  You will surely be able to colour & blend just like an artist!

Colours available –

Crumb Cake, Smokey Slate

Bermuda Bay, Daffodil Delight, Old Olive, Pumpkin, Pie Rich Razzleberry

Calypso Coral, Pink Pirouette, Pool Party

Cherry Cobbler, Night of Navy

Ivory, Bronze

Colour Lifter

Check out the video to see how great they are –

Why Will I Love the Stampin’ Blends?

  • Each colour has a light & dark shade marker (except Ivory & Bronze)
  • Come in sets of 2 but as they are not refillable, you are able to purchase them individually when they need replacing (I love this idea)
  • Add the right amount of colour with the brush tip or fine-point tip
  • The lids are able to be stacked on each other & are a tight fit for long-lasting colour
  • A press fit seal prevents air from entering the barrel which causes evaporation

Yes, if you are thinking of joining Stampin’ Up!® you are able to add them to your Starter Kit.  Join here.October

Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions about the Stampin’ Blends as I am only too happy to answer them for you.

Oh Hello Friend

Oh-So-Eclectic---Rose-Red--

I’m sharing with you a card I created for a game we had on our Facebook Page last week.  I am a little late in posting this as I had to make a quick trip to Brisbane on the weekend.

I love the Oh So Eclectic Bundle & as it was sitting on my desk from another project I decided to go with it  I’m really happy with the way it turned out, especially the flowers as I’ve added Perfect Plum to the inner petals to highlight them a little.  Never be afraid to play & experiment with colours.  You will be surprised at how they turn out!October

Merry & Bright

Colourful-Seasons---Close-U

Today’s card is another we created in our Cards @ Toogoom class a couple of weeks ago.  You can see the 1st card here.  Both cards use the Emboss Resist Technique which you can find Technique Tutorials here.

For some reason I love Christmas baubles.  Don’t know why, but I especially love that they can come in all sizes & colours.  I don’t have a bauble set so I set about creating some of my own.

We used the Colorful Seasons Stamp Set to create our card by randomly stamping the Colourful-Seasons---Insidesnowflake images onto a piece of Whisper White CS, using the Emboss Resist Technique & punching out 3 different size circles.

To hang the baubles we die cut a “branch” from the Seasonal Layers Thinlits, & Silver Foil before being attaching Silver Metallic Thread.  The Whisper White background has been embossed using the Softly Falling EF & then layered onto a piece of Dapper Denim CS.

Just a Note…

Daisy-Deliht-Suite---WCMD--

G’Day Stampers,

Today, I am sharing with you another card that went in the mail last week celebrating World Card Making Day..  In fact I liked these so much that I actually created a couple of them which doesn’t happen very often.

I actually saw a card on Pinterest sometime ago similar to this one, but of course now I can’t find it.  If you recognise it, please let me know so that I can give you credit.  Thank you so much for your inspiration.

For my Base Card I’ve used the Note Card & Envelopes available in Whisper White & Very Vanilla.  Did you take advantage to purchase them when they were on special?  I know I did!

I die cut a piece of Whisper White CS using the Swirly Scribles Thinlits before adhering a piece of Window Sheet behind the top & bottom part of the card.  I then decided to add a piece of the Delightful Daisy DSP behind the see through section.  Once this was done, I then Inlaid the die shape back into the card & trimming the excess Window Sheet from the sides & bottom.

Just a Note… is from the set Better Together & was stamped on the top part of the Card in Night of Navy Ink as was the flower.  The leaf & flower are both from the  Daisy Delight Stamp Set & was stamped in Old Olive, stamping off once for the solid image prior to stamping the outline.

The whole piece was then layered onto a piece of Calypso Coral CS & then to the Base Card.

It’s a very simple little card but one I hope the receiver will like.October

G’Day Stampers,

I’ve been quite the last week, needed to take a little downtime but now I’m back.

As you are probably aware, Saturday was World Card Making Day but this year I’ve taken it 1 step further & decided to celebrate for the whole of October!  This means that I’ve created a pile of cards using the gorgeous Note Cards & Envelopes which are on special up to 10 October to post or hand out to random family, friends, neighbours, customers, etc.  Today’s card is using the Whisper White set.  These Cards & Envelopes are my “go to” supply!  Love them!

I’ve used the Daisy Delight Stamp Set & the Daisy Punch on my card.  Don’t forget the Stamp Set is on special up to 10 October.  The Bundle (yes, available in a Bundle) was teamed up with Night of Navy, Old Olive & Daffodil Delight Inks.  The circle was die cut with the Stitched Shapes Framelits  & then sponged with Daffodil Delight & a Stamping Sponge before being adhered to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I left the front blank as I wanted the receiver to be able to reuse the card for any occasion by forwarding it on.

If you click on the link “World Card Making Day” you will see what other product is on special BUT ONLY up to 10 October.

Until next time, Happy Stampin’
