25 March 2013 – It’s Tea Time!!

I can’t believe that Easter is almost here!! The year is just flying by!!

At Stamp Club earlier this month, we had a play with the new Borders Scoring Plate in the Seasonal Catalogue. You can score gorgeous borders and patterns on to cards and scrapbook pages.

I found a lovely card on Pinterest by Suzette here. I thought it was gorgeous and that we could give it a go. I didn’t have the same paper, so I went with Tea for Two DSP. I love this floral paper in it!!

We had fun doing the embossing around the cut out shape. It’s something that is going to take a bit of practice to do, I think!! We dyed the very vanilla ribbon by wetting it with water in a spray bottle and then scrunching it up and rubbing onto the certainly celery ink pad. We then used the heat gun to speed up the drying process. To colour the flower trim, I didn’t wet them but just rubbed them on the ink pad. (My fingers looked a bit pinky on the ends!!)

When I stamped the flowers from Just Believe stamp set onto the background, I actually stamped off first and then stamped it, so that it was only just a shadow of an image.

I hope you like it! Please leave me a comment below.

I’ve cased this one from here on Pinterest.  Once I’ve worked out how to put a link in, you can follow me on Pinterest too!  I’ve embossed the bigger framelit and then sponged it with Champagne Mist Shimmer Paint.  Gotta love sparkle!

I thought I’d have a play with one of my favourite stamp sets, Just Believe.  I had a look around Splitcoaststampers and found this lovely card which I cased.  I was really trying to not use my Big Shot (cos I was too lazy to get it out!!) but it really needed the butterflies.  I tend to use my Big Shot on every card so maybe I’ll try not to use it on the next one.  (I did say try!!)

Hi everyone, 

I hope you are enjoying the rain this week!!  Sadly, I am back at work again this week.  It already feels like I was never away!!

On Saturday, I attended the Brisbane Stampin’ Up! Regional training event, where we had presentations from different speakers, including Donna Griffiths from the US Home Office.  We also had a number of Workshop Wows by talented Queensland demonstrators and of course, the our head Aussie man, Aaron.

Part of the fun of any Stampin’ Up! event, is swapping!!!  You make a card front, using only current products and you include a project receipe on the back stating what you used.  I made 40 swaps of 4 different items.  Some demonstrators like to make lots of the one card but I get bored making them!! 

Here are the swaps that I made.
