27 October 2012 – Blue Christmas

I have been having great fun making different ornaments.  I have also been having fun with the glue sticking to my fingers!!  Just one of the hazards of the job, I guess!!

I love all the new framelits that are in the Holiday Catalogue, espeically the Holiday Ornament framelits.  I have found that you can cut 4 layers of DSP at a time, although less with cardstock as it is a bit thicker.  This makes it quicker to make ornaments as each ornament needs about 20 pieces cut out.  Once it is folded and glue together, it comes together pretty quickly.

 

Paper:  Bella DSP, Very Vanilla

Accessories:  Big Shot, Holiday Ornaments framelits, Snow flurry die, subtles button, twine.

28 April 2012 – April Stamp Club

Last weekend we had stamp club, so I thought I would share our cards with you.  I focused on some of the new stamp sets and fabulous new tools available in the latest Autumn Winter mini catalogue.

This first one focuses on the Adorning Accents edgelits and the matching embossing folder, including the co-ordinating stamp set, Bordering on Romance.  Once you get the hang of the edgelits, they are very easy to use and look absolutely fabulous!! I did case this one but I can’t find where.

Stamps:  Bordering on Romance, Party Time

Ink:  Blushing Bride, Rose Red, Staz on Black, Pear Pizzazz

Paper:  Blushing Bride, Pear Pizzazz, Whisper White

Accessories:  Adorning Accents Edgelits, Big Shot, Adorning Accents Embossing folder, Basic Pearls, blender pens, organza white ribbon

The next card is cased from here.  I used it as my inspiration but I used different colours and different stamps.  I made the rosette using the new Simply Scored which is great.  It makes making rosette’s so easy!!

 Stamp Sets:  Word Play

Ink:  Versamark

Paper:  Beau Chateau DSP, Soft Suede, Pink Pirouette, Marina Mist

Accessories:  Lace Ribbon Border punch, 1 3/4″ scallop circle punch, 1 1/4″ circle punch, Scallop Circle #2 die, Very Vanilla Seam binding ribbon, subtles buttons.

I had some issues with the single photo that I took, so the next card is in a group of three.  I couldn’t decide on which colour combination to go with, so I had a couple of attempts.  I went with the card in the middle, using the gorgeous new Twitterpated DSP.  Love it!!  I also used the new Tea Shoppe stamp set which is so cute!  I did case this card but again, can’t find the link!!

Stamp Set:  Tea Shoppe

Ink:  Riding Hood Red,  Pear Pizzazz, Blushing Bride, Baja Breeze

Paper:  Riding Hood Red, Baja Breeze, Whisper White, Twitterpated DSP

Accessories:  Pear Pizzazz pleated satin ribbon, Adorning Accents edgelits, 1 1/4″ square punch.

9 September 2011 – Fabric!!!!!

I’m so excited that Stampin’ Up! have introduced fabric to their range of fabulous products!!!  As an occasional patchworker, I love all the fabrics that they have on offer.  I also love my big shot and I’ve been able to use it on this project.

I’ve made a bag using the Scallop Square die and the Beau Chateau fabric range.  It was really easy to put together, and so easy to cut out using the Big Shot.  I was able to put 6 layers of fabric through in one go which I was really impressed with!!!  I also used the flower folds die to cut out the flowers, which I attached with the subtles buttons.

Here’s a close up of the flower.

Fabric:  Beau Chateau, calico

Accessories:  Big Shot, Scallop square die, flower folds die, subtles buttons.

13 July 2011

I hope you are enjoying winter!!  It has certainly hit with a vengence!!

I’ve just finished a couple of cards that I had left over from a workshop.  I’ve had the pieces on my desk for ages, so it’s nice to finally get them done!!  At our last stamp class, we made an easel card using the scallop squares duo die from the latest mini catalogue.  It inspired me to make one with the bigger scalloped square die from the summer mini.  These cards are so easy to make but look very impressive!!

Here’s the side view!!

And here’s the inspiration!!  (The pumpkin pie card was actually inspired by a card that I received as a swap at Convention, so thanks to Sharon Turnbull for a great swap!!)

Stamp sets:  Bring on the Cake, Scribble This

Paper:  Melon Mambo, Daffodil Delight, Tempting Turquoise (thanks, colour coach!!)

Ink:  Daffodil Delight, Tempting Turquoise

Accessories:  Big Shot, Clear Large Scallop Square die, Subtles buttons, Melon mambo pom pom trim, pastels, mini glue dots, word window punch, Decorative label punch.

7 June 2011 – Challenge!!

Hi everyone!!  Hope you are having a great week.

I visited my grandparents and aunty today.  We had a lovely lunch together, thanks Pop!!  My Aunt is getting ready to head off to the Scrapbooking convention this weekend.  I’d love to go but I’d be tempted to buy too much!!!  We had a look through my swap cards from the recent SU! convention and it inspired me to make a card this afternoon.

I thought I would try a couple of challenges to get me going.  I found the Inkspirations Colour Challenge here and the Sunday Sketch and Stamp here.

At the moment, my favourite embossing folder is the new lattice one!  I just love it.  I thought it would make a nice background to my stamps.  I think this would make a good male birthday.  (Hmm, who’s is next!!)

Stamps:  Bring on the Cake, A Slice of Life

Paper:  Pear Pizzazz, Peach Parfait, Not Quite Navy and Whisper White

Ink:  Not Quite Navy

Accessories:  Big Shot, Lattice embossing folder, Birds and Blooms Scallop circles sizzlet, Regals buttons.

21 March 2011

I’ve been trying to post more regularly but sometimes life just gets in the way!!!  Never mind, here’s a card that I have made as part of a swap with my team, Eureka Stampers.  One of the great benefits about being a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator is being a part of a team and learning and sharing with fellow demonstrators.  One of the ways we do this, is by swapping cards.  You make, say 6 card fronts, and then post them to 5 demonstrators, keeping one for yourself.  Then you end up with 6 gorgeous card fronts to get inspiration from!!!

If you’re interested in becoming a demonstrator, and enjoying the wonderful benefits, please contact me.  If you join prior to the end of March (and Sale-a-bration), you will be able to choose another stamp set from the main catalogue as part of your starter kit for free!!  How great is that!!!

This month’s theme for our swap is Male cards which I always find a bit of a challenge.  I’m currently getting “happy” mail every day and it’s great to see different ideas!!.  Here’s my card.  I used a sketch from Utah Divas International for inspiration.

Stamp Sets:  Word Play, Hodgepodge Hardware

Ink:  Not Quite Navy, Sahara Sand

Paper:  Blueberry Crisp DSP, Not Quite Navy, Pacific Point, Sahara Sand

Accessories:  1 3/4″ circle punch, Bitty Buttons

Here’s all my swaps!!!  I don’t enjoy making lots of the same card but I can do 10!!
