7 December 2012 – Candle Delight!

At the recent Stampin’ Up! Heartfelt event held in Brisbane, there was a gorgeous table setting display by a fellow demonstrator, Jacqui Crouch, using the Ornament Keepsakes stamp set and matching Holiday Ornaments framelits.

It was a setting to die for!!  I loved the candle that she had decorated so I took a few photos and got a candle and whipped it up!!

I made 8 petals for the base and attached each petal to a chipboard circle using my trusty hot glue gun.  I then cut 3″ pieces (or 3 scallops) of Crumb Cake Scalloped Tulle Ribbon and glued it between each petal and then the centre of each petal.

I then made a belly band to go around the candle using the Delicate Designs embossing folder.  I sponged it with Crumb Cake and cut out the scallops by hand.  I attached it to a Cherry Cobbler band and put two rows of crochet trim.  I used the Snow Flurry die to create the snow flake and sponged with Crumb Cake.  I then used the Boho Blossoms punch and added a large pearl in the middle.  See?  Easy Peasy!!

It’s so exciting, the new Stampin’ Up! 2012-2013 Catalogue is here!!!

There are so many gorgeous new stamps, designer series papers to die for, ribbon to drool over and Big Shot dies!!  My heart is happy!!  You will be excited to know that we have virtually the same catalogue as the US market, which is great news!

We are also launching the very first Seasonal Catalogue at the same time.  The mini catalogues have been replaced by Seasonal Catalogues.  They are available longer, (this one is here until 31 January), and are bigger.  I have to say that the Christmas range is fabulous!!  I’ve got some of it and it is great!!

14 August 2012 – July Stamp Club

Hi there,

It’s starting to get a bit warmer during the day now although it is a bit chilly at night time.  Here’s the cards that we made at July Stamp Club (yes I know I’m late posting!!)  I was inspired by swaps that I had received at Convention for all these cards.  The first one is from fellow Demonstrator, Cathy Clark.

Here is her card using the Spirelli technique.

And here is my card.  Yes, it’s time for a Christmas Card!!

Paper:  Letters to Santa DSP, Whisper White, Cherry Cobbler

Ink:  Cherry Cobbler, Old Olive markers

Accessories:  Big Shot, Perfect Pennants die, Boho Blossoms punch, White baker’s twine, Cherry Cobbler baker’s twine, Rhinestone.

The next card was inspired by Bronwen Cornish. I did virtually the same card that she did.  We made ours in Melon Mambo and Tempting Turquoise.  You can’t really tell from the photo but we put a multipurpose adhesive sheet over the centre panel and put dazzling diamonds over the top.  We were all a bit sparkly going home!!
