A small wonder

I don’t know about you but I enjoy doing easy projects every once in a while. I was feeling like exploring doing a One Sheet Wonder but didn’t really have the time to make 11 or 12 cards.

After spending some time (more than I care to admit!!) on Pinterest, I found a One Sheet Wonder for 6″x6″ dsp here on SMD Paper Arts, which creates just 3 cards.

I decided to use the Wood Textures DSP Stack as it’s already the right size! I then trimmed it according to the template.  I did have to trim a little extra as our Aussie cardstock is a little bit smaller than US.

Unfortunately, I’ve had to use a few of my sympathy cards lately, so I needed to make a few to have handy in my stash.  I’ve used the Heartfelt Sympathy stamp set and embossed the sentiments with gold.  The photos don’t really do the embossing justice.

I added a strip of the new black shimmer ribbon which has a little sparkle to it.  I then used the layering framelits and the stitched shape framelits for the sentiment piece.

Hopefully, I won’t need to use these soon but if I do, I’ll have them ready.

A one sheet wonder template is a great resource when you are short of ideas and you get to showcase our gorgeous designer series paper.

Leave me a comment and tell me which is your favourite dsp from the current catalogue.  I’ll feature the most popular one next week.

Happy Stamping

CTC132 – Birthdays

It’s so exciting!!  My new catalogue order arrived this week!!  I petted, patted and drooled over it.  But did I stamp with it?  Nope!!  I’ve had a busy couple of days and I’m working this weekend, so I’ll be playing next week.  Can’t wait!!

We are casing the Birthday section of the 2017-2018 Annual Catalogue, pages 68-85.

Once again, there are so many amazing cards to case in this section.  I realised that I haven’t used the Sweet Cupcake stamp set for ages, but I liked the sample on the page 85.

I decided to create the base layer on a separate piece of card so that if there was a mistake, I wasn’t wasting the whole card.  I started with the Happy Birthday stamp from the Sweet Cupcake set using Tranquil Tide.  I accidently had them a bit too far apart.  When I looked at the stamp set, it has a very handy belated stamp!  I stamped in it Powder Pink.

I stamped the cake base and the bottom layer of icing in Powder Pink.  I then did the top layer of icing in Berry Burst.  I also added some Clear Stella.  You always need sparkle on a cake!!  hehe!!

I used the Layered circle framelits for the base and the Birthday banner stamp set and matching Bunch of Banners framelits.

Actually I did use one of my new products!!  You’ll never guess, cos you can’t see it!!  I got the new mini dimensionals!!!  They are too cute!!

I also added some thick white twine.  I’m rather happy with the end result!!  Now who’s birthday did I miss!

Next up on the hop is the lovely Julia.

Don’t forget to pop over to our Facebook group where you can join in with the challenge.  And if you are an Australian or New Zealand demonstrator, we are looking for more Crew members.  Just participate in June’s challenges and we will consider you.

Happy Caseing!

Oh Happy Day

It’s the best day of the Stampin’ Up! calendar!!  Well actually it was yesterday but I had to work and didn’t get a chance to blog.

It’s a new catalogue!!  Woo Hoo!!  Have you had a chance to see this gorgeous new catalogue.  It will keep you quiet for hours whilst you check out all the new goodies.  If you want to see it online, click here, or I’m happy to post one out to you.  Just send me an email at stampinwithrebecca@yahoo.com.au and I’ll get one off to you.

I have had the catalogue since the start of April when I attended the Stampin’ Up! Onstage event in Sydney.  I’ve had my catalogue bound at Officeworks and had a spiral edge put on it.  I do this every year although it’s always hard to be separated from my catty!  But it’s worth it as it stops it getting tatty.

I was lucky enough to receive the Ribbon of Courage stamp set as a Prize Patrol at Onstage.  I think this is a great set and will be handy for fundraising events.

I didn’t receive the framelits, but you can bet they were one of the first things on my order!

My team did a swap after Onstage and I decided to use this set.  I was inspired by one of the amazing Artisan’s, Kimberly Van Diepen, with her lovely card highlight Autism Awareness.

I used the new Berry Burst In Colour which is quickly becoming one of my new favourites.  I also have to say that the Stitched Shape framelits are my favs as well!!

I just love this set and I’m sure I will be using it a lot.

If you need it too, you can order at my online store, here.  Make sure you use hostess code, T3PYE2CD, to go into the draw to receive a gift from me.

Happy New Catalogue Shopping!

I hope you enjoyed the last colour challenge.  It was so nice seeing everyone’s entries!!  Congratulations to the winners.

I found the colours for this next challenge to be, well, challenging!!  Definitely not colours I would put together myself but that’s the point of doing a challenge.  To try different combinations!!

In case you can’t read the tiny writing, the colours are Delightful Dijon, Tip Top Taupe, Soft Suede, Early Espresso and Very Vanilla.

I decided to make my background using the Paisleys & Posies stamp set.  I hesitated to buy this set when it first came out in the Holiday catalogue but I liked all the samples I saw, so when I found it was carrying through, I purchased it along with the matching framelits.  But I haven’t used it until today!!!

Two of my favourite framelits at the moment are the Layering Circles (oh and the squares and ovals) and the Stitched Shape framelits.  They just go so nicely together.  My sentiment is from the Birthday Blooms stamp set.

I hope you have enjoyed my card.  Please leave a comment and let me know.

Oh and make sure you check out the clearance rack as lots of new products have been added.

Next up on the hop is Monique.  I can’t wait to see what she has created.

Happy Stamping

CTC119 – Sale-a-bration

ctc_header

I can’t believe that we are halfway through March already!!  Last year seem to go so slow waiting for my trip to New York and now it’s been nearly 5 months since I returned!

It’s finally starting to get a bit cooler here in Queensland.  Bring on Autumn, I say!!

This week we are casing the final section of the Sale-a-bration catalogue, pages 16-19. But don’t worry, Sale-a-bration isn’t finished yet and neither are we!

This section includes the Hey Chick set and I have to admit this is not my favourite set although all the creations I have seen look amazing.  So far, it is actually the most popular SAB stamp set in all the Stampin’ Up! markets.

I decided to case the chicken card on the right on page 15.

I’m having a market stand on the day before Mother’s Day so I’m planning on making a few Mother’s Day cards for all those last minute shoppers.  I went with Rose Red, Pink Pirouette and Sahara Sand as my colours and used the Double Take stamp set for the sentiment.  I kept the same Large Polka Dot embossing folder as the original.

I just love the Make a Medallion SAB stamp set and made my circles.  I am slightly addicted to the layering circle framelits at the moment so this set was perfect for me!  To create the banner, I tried the solid love image in Pink Pirouette but it didn’t stand out very well on the Sahara Sand card stock so I used Rose Red and stamped off first then onto the cardstock which turned out much better.  I then stamped the second thin love without stamping off for a darker colour.

It needed a bit of bling, so I added a few rhinestones to the centre of the medallion.

I was then drawn to the Designer Tee samples on page 18 and decided to case the t-shirt card on the right.

 

I like the sentiments in the Designer Tee stamp set although I don’t have the matching framelits.  I had a flip through my DSP and decided to use the Cupcakes & Carousels DSP stack.  I’ve been practising my watercolour technique and I seem to be getting the knack of it.  Being patient and just waiting for it to dry before adding more colour helps a lot!!

Once again, the layering circle framelits with their complimentary Stitched shapes framelits make an appearance!  I’m pretty happy with how this card turned out!!

Time is running out to earn your favourite sale-a-bration products, so place your qualifying $90 order with me today.  Here’s a link to my online store.  Don’t forget SAB ends on 31 March!

Next up on our hop today is the lovely Kathryn.

I hope you are enjoying all the amazing Sale-a-bration stamps and products!  Especially given the fact that they are all free!!

We are caseing the Sale-a-bration catalogue again this week, pages 12-15.

ctc117-fb-2

I was inspired by the card in the middle on page 12, featuring the Tasty Trucks stamp set.

ctc117-bec-c

I decided to use the new Sale-a-bration stamp set, Make a Medallion as I hadn’t inked it up yet.  I also wanted to use the Sweet Sugarplum glimmer paper (which is also a new SAB freebie).  I went to the My Creak Ink site and put in Sweet Sugarplum and Whisper White and it came up a few suggestions.  I decided to go with Sweet Sugarplum, Mint Macaron, Whisper White and Island Indigo.

I used the same Sparkle embossing folder as it’s cute.  I then stamped the medallions using Island Indigo and Mint Macaron and the sentiment in Sweet Sugarplum.  To cut out the circles, I used the Layering Circle famelits.  I just love the scallops!!

Here’s a close up of the circle. It’s so sparkly!!

I decided to use a sketch to help me along, so I went to my favourite sketch site, Mojo Monday.  I liked their current sketch, 482,  so decided to use that one.

I love the Pretty Kitty stamp set and I thought the kitties would be perfect for the squares.  I love all the layering framelits and that the Stitched Shapes framelits match them perfectly.  Without further ado, here’s my card!

I even made an envelope!!  Here’s a close up of the kitties.  I used blender pens to colour them in.
