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.

3 December 2011 – New Mini and December Frenzy!!!

It’s sooo exciting!!!  We have a new mini catalogue and a sale!!  Woo Hoo!!!

The Summer mini started on 1st December and there are lots of gorgeous stamps, papers, punches and more!!  I love, love, love the glimmer paper!!  and you don’t end up wearing it when you use it (actually, that might be a bad thing!!).  There is also the very cute candy wrapper die, which I will show you below.  You can now purchase the stocking punch and matching stamp set again, if you haven’t finished your christmas cards, like me!!

If you are looking for male stamp sets, there is a great set called The Open Sea which is just perfect.  It has gorgeous matching paper which I will be using at one of my stamp classes soon.

It’s sale time!!!  Click on the photo to be taken to my Specials page, where you can check out the great specials on offer.  If you are interested in ordering anything, please do not hesitate to contact me.

I am having Christmas lunch with a few girl friends on Friday and I’ve made them each a little present using the Candy Wrapper die.  If you have ever thought that the milk carton die was cute, you haven’t seen the candy wrapper die!!  You can just fit 2 Ferrero Rocher’s in them!!  (and drat, there were none left!!)

Paper:  Wild Wasabi, Whisper White, Silver Glimmer Paper

Ink:  Wild Wasabi, Cherry Cobbler

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!!

Stamp set:  Four Frames, On Your Birthday

Ink:  Calypso Coral, Wisteria Wonder

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

Accessories:  Corner Rounder punch, Decorative label punch, oval punch, scallop oval punch, doily triple layer punch, finial press embossing folder

 

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

 

 

13 September 2011 – CASEing the Catalogue!!!

Have you ever copied a card from somewhere else?  I do this all the time as I often lack the inspiration to come up with an idea.  Well, our catalogue is a great place to start!!  After all, it’s an ideas’ book as well!!

I wanted to showcase one of the new Christmas stamps, Beautiful Season, so I used the catalogue (page 22) and here it is!!

This is a lovely set and I can’t wait to make more with it!!

Stamp Set:  Beautiful Season

Ink:  Basic Black

Paper:  Watercolour paper, Crumb Cake, Cherry Cobbler, Certainly Celery

Accessories:  Blender pens, Stampin’ Pastels, Curly label punch, pearls.

 

I also CASEd a card from one of the old Stampin’ Up! invitations for a workshop on the weekend.  The hostess, (hi Colleen!!), had requested a card from the invite but I didn’t have the stamp set or the papers, so I improvised!!  I love the Decorative label punch, so I punched it out twice, cut it in half both ways and then used the pieces to make a layer behind the sentiment.

Stamp Sets:  Button Buddies, Bring on the Cake

Ink:  Daffodil Delight, Wild Wasabi

Paper:  Just Add Cake DSP, Peach Parfait, Whisper White, Wild Wasabi

Accessories – Scallop circle punch, decorative label punch, pinking hearts border punch
