CTC60 – Caseing a Design Team Member

CTC Holiday header-001

It’s our last project for 2015!! Can you believe that we are nearly ready to start a new year? I can’t!!

Our task this week is to Case another CTC Design Team Member. I was lucky to get my amazing friend, Emma at Vintage Graffiti. She is so talented and does the most beautiful work!!

It was hard to decide which project to CASE!! I ended up going with her Project Life case, which you can read about here.

Isn’t that a cute card? I didn’t want to use a Project Life card (as I might NEEED it for scrapping!) so I had a look at my stamp sets for a large quote. I found the Friendly Wishes stamp set had just the sentiment I needed to share my sentiments about my lovely friend!

Now unlike Emma, my sewing machine isn’t sitting on my desk but is miles away at the bottom of my craft cupboard (Well, not miles but maybe 1 metre away) but I can’t be bothered to get it out to sew on a card. That is pushing the limits of friendship way too much. So I decided to create a shaker card instead.

I stayed with a similar colour theme, although I used Bermuda Bay as my base, and the black polka dots is from the Neutrals DSP stack.

I stamped the sentiment with White Staz on and cut out the squares using my square framelits. I cut out the inside of the Bermuda Bay Square and added a window sheet behind it. I then used the edges of a pack of dimensionals around the edge of the square on the back to create the space to add the sequins in. I added a few pinches of sequins and then a few more to make sure I had enough.

At the recent Onstage Local Stampin’ Up! event held in Melbourne, I was lucky enough to be able to have a girls’ weekend with my stamping besties, Emma and Jess. We had such a fun time catching up and also finding out about the new Occasions catalogue! Love you girls!!

It’s a Pennsationals Colour Challenge

We are back with another blog hop with my amazing team, the Pennsationals!! You may have come from the lovely Emma at Vintage Graffiti or be starting the hop here with me.

This time, we are doing a colour challenge and I have to say, it was a bit of a challenge for me!! I was quite stumped for a while.

But then I found my mojo and got going!! I used the Friendly Wishes stamp set and coloured it with the Pacific Point and Blackberry Bliss markers. I then used a combination of circle punches and framelits to create the layers around the sentiment.

I used the Go Wild DSP stack (have you seen this, it’s great if you love animal prints!!) to add a some detail in the background. I added a silver layer to the background and used the silver satin ribbon for the final touch.

I just love my team and the support that we give each other. We have a facebook group to keep in touch as we are spread out over a few states, which makes it easier to feel a part of the team. We love to share our latest projects with each other, and asking questions when we need help, either with a technique or when it comes to our Stampin’ Up! business. One of the things I love the most is when we can get together at Stampin’ Up! events which is actually happening in less than 5 weeks time at the very first Onstage Local event in Melbourne. I can’t wait to catch up with the girls in person!! If you would love to be a part of the team, all you need to do is join up with me!! Just go here, and select your starter kit today! If you want to come to Onstage Local, you need to be a demonstrator, so what are you waiting for! LOL

We have just a short hop today. If you get lost on the hop, here is the list of participants.

I hope you have been enjoying the 2015-2016 Stampin’ Up! catalogue!!  I lurrvve it!!  There are lots of fabulous new stamps, punches, ribbons, kits and big shot accessories.

My amazing stamping team, Eureka Stampers, is having a blog hop tonight, to celebrate the arrival of the new catalogue.  You may be starting with me or have come from the talented Janine’s blog. (She’s my stamping great grandma!!)

I always love a sketch challenge to get my creative juices flowing, and my friend Emma pointed out the Sweet Sunday Sketch blog to me.

I decide to try Sketch 271 as I felt I could do something with it.

I wanted to play with the new Brights Designer Series Paper stack as I think the new flower print is really cute.

I wanted to make a card for my sister, as she has had a difficult time this year with depression, and I wanted her to know that I’m here for her. So the Friendly Wishes stamp set had the perfect stamp for me to use!! I also used the new Lots of labels framelits. I am going to be using these a lot!! And the smallest one is sooo cute!!

I love doing paper piercing and used the new updated essentials paper piercing pack to do the circle around the sentiment. I hope you like it too!

I couldn’t stop at just one project though! I also got the Bakers box thinlits and the matching stamp set, Homemade for You. As this was my first play with the die, I kept it simple. It’s very easy to put together and doesn’t it look cute! And can you see the bling!! Silver sequins!! My sequin wishes are now complete!!
