13 May 2013 – Tri-fold Shutter card – So Gorgeous!!

The yearly Stampin’ Up! convention is almost here and I’m so excited that it is in my home town of Brisbane!! I can’t wait to welcome all my team members to Brissie!! Only 9 more sleeps to go!!!

It’s been very hectic here getting all my swaps ready but I wanted to share this gorgeous card that we did at Stamp Club recently. I came across a tutorial by fellow SU! demonstrator, Tanya Bell, who does the most amazing work and creates fabulous tutorials. You can purchase Tanya’s tutorial here.

As it was so lovely, I didn’t really change very much. It was a fairly challenging card to do as a class but the girls took up the challenge and they all finished their card (although I’m not sure if they’re going to make another one!!).

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

I hope you are enjoying winter!!  It has certainly hit with a vengence!!

I’ve just finished a couple of cards that I had left over from a workshop.  I’ve had the pieces on my desk for ages, so it’s nice to finally get them done!!  At our last stamp class, we made an easel card using the scallop squares duo die from the latest mini catalogue.  It inspired me to make one with the bigger scalloped square die from the summer mini.  These cards are so easy to make but look very impressive!!

Here’s the side view!!

And here’s the inspiration!!  (The pumpkin pie card was actually inspired by a card that I received as a swap at Convention, so thanks to Sharon Turnbull for a great swap!!)

Stamp sets:  Bring on the Cake, Scribble This

Paper:  Melon Mambo, Daffodil Delight, Tempting Turquoise (thanks, colour coach!!)

Ink:  Daffodil Delight, Tempting Turquoise

7 June 2011 – Challenge!!

Hi everyone!!  Hope you are having a great week.

I visited my grandparents and aunty today.  We had a lovely lunch together, thanks Pop!!  My Aunt is getting ready to head off to the Scrapbooking convention this weekend.  I’d love to go but I’d be tempted to buy too much!!!  We had a look through my swap cards from the recent SU! convention and it inspired me to make a card this afternoon.

I thought I would try a couple of challenges to get me going.  I found the Inkspirations Colour Challenge here and the Sunday Sketch and Stamp here.

At the moment, my favourite embossing folder is the new lattice one!  I just love it.  I thought it would make a nice background to my stamps.  I think this would make a good male birthday.  (Hmm, who’s is next!!)

Paper:  Pear Pizzazz, Peach Parfait, Not Quite Navy and Whisper White

Ink:  Not Quite Navy

Accessories:  Big Shot, Lattice embossing folder, Birds and Blooms Scallop circles sizzlet, Regals buttons.

30 April 2011

I’ve had a busy couple of weeks since I last posted!!  I’ve been so busy crafting and getting my swaps ready for convention, that I forgot to post on my blog!!  Woops!!!

I don’t want to post photos of my swaps yet (don’t want to spoil the surprise) although they are just about finished.  I’ve already posted 80 down to Melbourne, cos they were too big to take as luggage but I’m working on another 20 to share with my team, Eureka Stampers.  I’ll be finishing them during the Royal Wedding, fun fun!!!

Here is a card that I made recently from a tutorial that I purchased from Julia Leece, a fellow Stampin’ Up! demonstrator.  Here’s a link to her blog.  It’s a stepper card using the top note die for the Big Shot. I did make a slight booboo but I know where I went wrong (I’m just too lazy to take another picture of the good one!!)

Stamp Set:  Strength & Hope, Bring on the Cake

Ink:  Rose Red

Cardstock:  Very Vanilla, Rose Red

Accessories:  Big Shot, Top Note Die, Decorative Label Punch, Hodgepodge Hardware, Chantilly crochet ribbon.

Enjoy!!
