27 August 2012 – Sneak Peak 1

Hi all,

I had my catalogue launch on Saturday for the new Stampin’ Up! 2012 – 2013 Catalogue this weekend and it was a great success!!  The girls had a great time and everyone walked away with a prize!  They also got a copy of the new Catalogue and the Seasonal Catalogue.  Yes, there are two catalogues coming out at once!!  So exciting!!!  The Seasonal catty is to die for.  So many amazing stamps and accessories.  Fortunately it goes until the end of January, so I should hopefully be able to get it all!! (But don’t tell my husband!)

This week, I am going to share with you a few of the cards that I made to display at the launch and also what we made.

Here are a couple made with Betsy’s Blossom Stamp set.  It is a cute set with a little bird just asking to be cut out.  This first card was cased here, from Ladybug Designs.  I’ve changed it to the new In-colour, Midnight Muse.  I love the new Bitty Banners Framelits as I am hopeless at cutting even ends on a banner.  I get one end just nice and the other is not.

Stamps:  Betsy’s Blossom, Loving Thoughts

Ink:  Midnight Muse, Wild Wasabi

Paper:  Midnight Muse, Wild Wasabi, Whisper White

Accessories:  Big Shot, Stripes Embossing folder, Adorning Accents Edgelit, Adorning Accents Embossing Folder, Bitty Banners framelits, Wild Wasabi stitched grosgrain ribbon,  2 3/8″ scallop circle punch, 1 3/4″ circle punch, rhinestone.

I found the next card on Pinterest here.  There are so many lovely ideas there.  You can spend more time just looking than actually making!!  This card uses the new Oval Accent Bigz die which is just lovely.  I love all the new dies that are coming out!!

Stamp Sets:  Betsy’s Blossoms, Kindness Matters

Ink:  Midnight Muse, Gumball Green, Early Espresso

Paper:  Midnight Muse, Gumball Green, Summer Starfruit, Whisper White

Accessories:  Big Shot, Oval Accent Bigz Clear Die, Bitty Banners framelit, Square Lattice embossing folder, Daffodil Delight stitched grosgrain ribbon.

Check back tomorrow for more sneak peaks!!

 

 

25 July 2012 – Card Chest

I recently visited one of my downline and she showed me some of the amazing 3d items that she has made.  She gave me a template for a card chest by Jenny Moors, an UK Stampin’ Up! demonstrator.  Here’s a link to her blog, http://stampingmoments.blogspot.com.au/.  As it was the birthday of one of my other downlines, I thought I would give this a try.  I’m happy with the result, I hope you like it!!  Here’s the chest.

Here’s the cards.  For the small cards, I made the envelopes using the new Diagonal Scoring plate for the Simply Scored.

Stamp Sets:  Sincere Saluations

Paper:  Mocha Morning DSP, Cherry Cobbler, Black, Crumb Cake, Very Vanilla

Ink:  Black, Cherry Chobbler

Accessories: Big Shot, Stripes embossing folder, Lots of Tags Sizzlets Die set, Black Satin Ribbon, Simply Scored, Diagonal scoring plate
