30 August 2012 – Sneak Peak 4

I hope you are enjoying the cards that I made for my Catalogue launch.  This next one was inspired from this one here.  I have used the gorgeous Summer Smooches DSP.

Paper:  Midnight Muse, Summer Smooches DSP, Whisper White,  Daffodil Delight

Ink:  Midnight Muse, Daffodil Delight

We made the next card at the launch.  It was a bit challenging but all the girls were up to it!!  I cased this one from here.  I love using markers to ink up the stamp.  Looks so pretty!  I hand cut the stamped image as we don’t have the matching framelits yet.

29 August 2012 – Sneak Peak 3

As a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator, I have access to a demonstrator only forum which links all demos from around the world, Stampin Connection.  It has a great gallery of images for inspiration.  The first card that I am sharing today is by Melissa Stout, The Stamp Doc.  Check out her website here for a video on how she made this cute card.

This card is using the Festival of Prints DSP from the new Seasonal Catalogue.  This pack gives you 48 sheets of gorgeous papers that are 11.4 cm x 16.5 cm.  I think this is the first time that I have used the pennant part of the Perfect Pennants die!!

Ink:  Early Espresso

Paper:  Festival of Prints DSP, Early Espresso , Very Vanilla, Old Olive

Accessories:  Big Shot, Holiday Collection framelits, Silver Glimmer paper, rhinestones, Perfect Pennants Bigz Die, Dotted Scallop ribbon border punch, Scallop trim border punch and scallop edge border punch.

This card is from fellow Aussie demo, Ellen Woodbridge.  It uses the Papaya Collage stamp set from the New Catalogue.  You can see what I mean about needing the framelits for banners!!  Never mind, it’s the thought that counts, right?

Stamp Set:  Loving Thoughts, Papaya Collage

Ink:  Midnight Muse, Raspberry Ripple, Gumball Green, Summer Starfruit

Paper:  Whisper White

Accessories:  Pearls, Organza Ribbon

19 March 2012 – Journal

Hi everyone!!

I didn’t realise it had been so long since I last posted here.  I’ve been meaning to but I haven’t made much new stuff lately.

This weekend I went to the Hillsong Colour Conference in Sydney with my sister and friends.  We had a great time and I learnt a lot from the word of God with inspring speakers Beth Moore and Priscilla Shirer.  I made all the girls a journal so that they could take notes during the sessions.

I used a journal from a $2 shop and covered them with the Berry Blossoms DSP.  I love the glimmer paper and the Perfect Pennants die, so I had to combine the two!!

Here’s a close up of the lower portion.

Stamp Set:  Broadsheet Alphabet
