19 May 2012 – May Stamp Club – No. 3

Here’s the last card that we will be making today.  I cased this one from here.  This card looks much nicer in the flesh.  I’ve glittered the flower in the middle (and myself and the desk!!) using Dazzling Diamonds.

Did I mention that Stampin’ Up! have changed the starter kit?  It’s now even better to join SU!  It’s only $169 for the starter kit and you can choose whatever products you like up to the value of $235.  So if you already have a few Stampin’ Up! products, you don’t have to double up on them now.  If you join in May, you can also receive a pack of Designer Series Paper every month from June to December.  How great it that!!  Please contact me if you are interested.  stampinwithrebecca@yahoo.com.au or 0408 193 792.

9 November 2011 – Brisbane Regional event

Last Saturday I attended the Stampin’ Up! Brisbane Regional training event with some of the girls in my team and a few of my customers.  My upline, Tracy was also able to attend.  It was a great day of catching up, swapping, sharing, learning and laughs!!!  This is why I love Stampin’ Up!  They are such a generous business!!  They had door prizes during the day (I didn’t win one but one of my team members did, Yay Carolyn!!) and gave everyone who attended a container of Champagne glitter glass. Gorgeous stuff!!!

Some of the girls in my team, Carolyn G and Mary R.

 

Here are my guests, Me, Jan S, Lynn W and Sandra (aka Super Mum!!)

One of the best parts of any Stampin’ Up! event, is the swapping!!!  Generally, you make a card front, include a project recipe and make lots of them.  I don’t enjoy making 50 of the same thing, so I usually do a couple of different cards.  This year, I did two card fronts and a bookmark.

I cased this one from another SU demonstrator, Elizabeth Dyson.

Stamp Set:  Elizabeth, It’s Your Day

Ink:  Early Espresso, Rose Red

Paper:  Early Espresso, Rose Red, Regal Rose, Whisper White

Accessories:  Vintage Wallpaper embossing folder, Whisper White organza ribbon, pastels, blender pens.

This one was cased from Heather Klump.  I really love this paper and the colours!!

Ink:  Calypso Coral, Wisteria Wonder

Paper:  Berry Blossoms DSP, Whisper White, Wisteria Wonder, Calypso Coral

Now when I saw this on Splitcoaststampers, I just knew that I had to make it as a swap.  It’s by Snowteach.  I have to admit that I am addicted to Angry Birds!!!  These were very popular!!

Paper:  Real Red, Basic Black, Whisper White, More Mustard

Accessories:  Two Tags Die, Scallop circle punch, owl punch, bird punch, 1 3/8″ circle punch, 1 1/4″ circle punch, slot punch

 

 

4th March 2011

I had a lovely craft day last week with two lovely ladies (Hi Michelle and Lynette!!).  We had a great day of crafting and chatting and having cups of tea!!

I did actually manage to make a few cards using the free stamp sets from Sale-A-Bration.

I’ve cased this card from Michelle Le Breton, a fellow SU! demonstrator.  I thought it was simply gorgeous, and although I tried to pick different colours, pink just seemed to be perfect for this one.  I hope you enjoy!!

4 February 2011

I’m getting used to have a few days off and I’m starting to get lazy, I think!!!  It’s been pretty hot the last couple of days and it’s been very tempting just to sit in the air conditioning and read (or play with my new iphone!!)

I’ve finaly got around to taking some photos of a few cards that I have made when it wasn’t as hot!!  I’m getting in early for my sister-in-laws birthday in March.  She loves all things asian so here is a card from the Kimino Kids Stamp Set which I cased from here.

Stamp Set:  For your birthday, Kimino Kids

Paper:  Poppy Parade, Baja Breeze, So Saffron, Whisper White

Ink: Black staz-on, Poppy parade marker, Baja Breeze marker, So Saffron marker

Accessories:  Big Shot, lattice embossing folder, Finial Press embossing folder, Small oval punch, large oval punch, basic rhinestones

Here’s a photo of the detail of the embossing.

I’ve also been playing with the new Sale-a-bration stamp sets.  I really love Punch Bunch as it goes with all the punches (funny that!!)  Here’s one that I cased from here but I turned it around a bit.  I inked up the stamp and then sponged around the edges with the platinum shimmer paint before stamping on the cardstock.  The photo doesn’t really do it justice but it looks great!!
