Magnolias anyone?

Good afternoon all my lovelies out there!

Oh boy have I had fun today creating some cards to share with you using some of our beautiful new products.  My current favourite being the Magnolia Lane Bundle.  I just love Magnolias and these stamps and dies are to die for!  Hahaha!!   The DSP is also extremely beautiful.  You can see one piece of the DSP in this pictures shown.

CARD NUMBER 1

The first card is using the silver embossing paste and the brick wall stencil to create a background for the large magnolia flower which I have stamped in Crumb Cake only very lightly and then lightly coloured using water in an Aqua pen and the ink pad (use the opposite side of the pad as a palette).  I have used Petal Pink and Old Olive to do the colours.  The sentiment is from the Painted Glass set and embossed using silver heat embossing powder.  I have added three Rhinestone Basic Jewels for a bit of bling.  The card front is on whisper white and is mounted on Soft Sea Foam cardstock

Magnolia Lane Dynamic Lace card

Check out this beautiful white embossed cardstock made by using the new Lace 3D embossing folder.  I have added a strip of some of the Magnolia Lane DSP and again I have coloured two smaller magnolias using Petal Pink and Old Olive.  The sentiment is from the Good Morning Magnolia Bundle and us mounted on an Oval Stitched die.  The Thanks is heat embossed in gold and the Petal Pink flourishes surround it is a stamp from the Magnolia Lane set as well.  A simple but elegant card.

Tea Light Flowers

Hi all,

Just a quick post today as I have spent most of the day in the craft room making these and thoroughly enjoyed every minute of it.  Apologies to the neighbours if my singing was too loud but it is so much fun crafting with my music blaring and me singing out of tune to my playlist

Don’t you just love these tea light flowers?  I was inspired by another demonstrator Kareth Sims in America who made some using the light bulb punch.  But as I don’t have the light bulb punch a light bulb moment occurred to me to use the Daisy Punch.  Maybe a little bit more tedious but so much fun to make.  Would make lovely table decorations for a special occasion don’t you think?  Let me know how you would use them!

The card in the background is a card that we did at a technique class recently using the embossing paste.  Loooooove this stuff, so much fun to play with and colour too!

The butterfly is water coloured in pastel tones similar to a card in a recent catalogue.  Do you know which one???

Couple of questions for you to answer here today!  Would love some of your feedback.

Well until next time, keep on crafting.

Heart Wreath Home Decor Piece.

Good afternoon my lovelies!

Well Hubby is out mowing the lawn so I have been in my craft room creating once again.  I recently did a succulent wreath class (with real plants) with one of my beautiful Daughters in law and I thought I could do a flower wreath from my punches and dies.  I have seen a lot on Pinterest etc but this is what I came up with.

I wanted to use up some DSP so used it to make some of the flowers. This added colours. I had a couple of injuries mind you!!  LOL, burnt myself on my hot glue gun, pierced myself with my paper piercer while unclogging an old glue bottle (not SU).  Then I ran out of hot glue so a trip to Bunnings and came back with not just the glue but a few plants for the actual garden.  Have you ever gone to the shops just to buy one thing and come back with just that one thing?    MMmmm never happens to me!

The wooden sentiment and the actual wreath are the only things that aren’t Stampin Up as I had some of these in my drawers to use.  I think it makes a nice home decor piece!

I used Wonderful Romance stamps and dies for most of the foliage and punches for the flowers.  The list of products is below if you would like to order any of the products.  Unfortunately the Pansy Punch is retired but you can use any of the new punches.

I will also take any orders for floral wreaths in a colour and theme to suit your occasion.  Costs start at $30 (Could vary depending on size etc).  Call me on 0419721561 to order.

Would love to know what you think!

Well back to the craft room to clean up my mess that I made!

Hope you all have a fabulous day!

Tea Time Mother’s Day Card

Good afternoon all my lovelies,

Mother’s Day is just around the corner so I thought I would share a lovely card I have done using the beautiful Tea Time Dies and Tea Together Stamp Set.  The stamp set is currently available in the Occasions Catalog, however I have it on good authority that these will be carried over into the new catalog.  How beautiful are they?  I like the easel style cards for these special occasions as they can sit up nicely and the recipient can enjoy for a long time to come.

If you are coming to my launch of the 2019/2020 catalog on 9th June you will be able to view these products and many more fantastic products and get to play with some.  Have you booked your seat or table yet?  Call me on 0419721561 to book a place or book a table with some friends for a fun filled day.  Lots of prizes to be won and also I will have some pre loved stamp sets for sale.

The Gingham DSP will be retiring so if you are after these gorgeous papers, be sure to get your orders in now!

A list of the products used in this easel card are listed below for your convenience.

Hope you like today’s card!  Let me know if you would like to order any of the products or hold a workshop where you can earn some for free!

Hope you have a fantastic weekend!

Retiring Products!

Happy Easter Everyone!

Hope this finds you all well and happy on this beautiful Easter Long Weekend.

Just a quick post today so that it gives you time to get your head around all the wonderful products that will be retiring, (Sad face)!  Here are some pics of what will be going!  Cannot believe that some of my favourites will be going BUT and there is always a BUT, I have had a peak look at what is coming and you will have your mind blown away by some of the new products coming to Stampin Up.  I need to make room on my stamp shelf so will be selling some pre loved stamp sets soon.

I guess the biggest news is that a lot of the tools will be going like the Big Shot and Stampin Trimmer but we have been told that this is only temporary and that SU may be bringing in alternatives but all the dies and embossing folders will fit any new products they bring out so don’t despair!

If you have been wanting anything on these lists ensure you place your order with me as soon as possible to avoid disappointment as some items are starting to sell out already.

So check out these pics and start making your wish list!

Look forward to receiving your orders!

Have a great day!

Today’s Technique Class

Hello again my lovelies,

We had a fun and messy technique class today with Chris and Tina making some beautiful cards.  The techniques they learnt today were:-

  • How to use embossing paste and how to colour it using re-inkers and to apply the embossing paste as a background to your card or project.
  • Bleaching technique without bleach.
  • Flower making – two types of flower

Tina and Trina Brayering

Here are the cards we made.

Technique class 16-4-2019 - cards

The dragonfly card is using the embossing paste and we also used Stampin Write markers to colour in the dragonfly.  We also heat embossed the dragonfly in black embossing powder first and the sentiment also is black heat embossed.

The second card we did the bleaching technique (without bleach).  This technique is best used with dark colours.  The ladies first heat embossed the image with white embossing powder then brayered the card in their choice of ink.  Water is used to “bleach” the ink off the image.

The third card we learnt how to make the two different types of flowers.  A long process but a great effect in the end.

Hope you liked today’s cards and if you would like to come along to any of my classes check out my FB page for classes and events that are coming up or call me to find out more details  0419721561.  Remember all classes require prior booking and preferably payment prior as there is preparation required for all classes.

Thanks for stopping by today.

Hope to see you at one of my classes soon!

Cheers

Scrapbook Page Reveal!

Hello my lovelies,

Earlier today I posted a pic on my FB page when I first started this project.  I have spent ALL day in the craft room working on it while hubby outside in the garden!  Talking about living separate lives!  Anyway this is a photo of my gorgeous parents and my dad’s mum, my Gran who I have such beautiful fond memories of.  I’ve been wanting to do another scrapbook page for awhile and wanted to use all or mostly Stampin Up products (as I have so many!).  Well here is the result and I can honestly say there are only a couple of embellishments, that aren’t SU.  All the inks and stamps (oh the text stamp isn’t SU only as I don’t have the SU one which is similar).  I even made the bluish flowers using Brushos and water on paper and cutting them out so that they matched the brusho ink I used to add a little colour.  All the frames are cut out using stitched framelits and the sentiment is from the Well Said stamp set which I just love.  It has so many words and sentiments and is still available in the Occasions catalogue.  Well I hope you like this page, please let me know what you think.

I am not sure when I will be posting again as I am having a procedure done tomorrow and may be laid up in bed for a few days!  Hope you all have a great week and until next time,

Keep on craftin!!!

Simple Stamping

Good afternoon my lovelies,

Well we had the electrician here today so I hid myself in my craft room.  I woke up the other morning at about 3am and had a vision of a pattern and I remembered that I had to put into use.  Stampin Up have a Simple Stamping challenge at the moment and this design certainly meets that brief, I think.  If you don’t have much DSP don’t forget that you can use your stamps to create a beautiful pattern that mimicks DSP (Designer Series Paper).  The stamp set I used was one I haven’t used in awhile but is one of my all time favourites and is very versatile.  Its the Swirly Bird Stamp Set and is available in the Annual Catalogue.  Although I purchased this stamp set for the larger images and the framelits, I hadn’t used the smaller stamps.  So today’s card is using the little flowers and the stems and the background dot splotches!  The colours I used are Petal Pink, Mint Macaron and crumb cake and stamped randomly on Very Vanilla Cardstock.  I sponged around the edge of the card in Crumb Cake as well.  I added some pearls to give it a real Laura Ashley look!  I think it meets all the criteria for a simple stamping card.  The sentiment is using some wording from the Well Said stamp set which is just amazing for sentiments.  I hope they carry it over to the new catalogue.  I hope you like it.  Let me know what you think!

The products used are listed below and if you would like to purchase any of these please be sure to click on my 24/7 online shop.   I would love to see some of your simple stamping projects.  Share them here with me would love to see them.

Well hope you all have a great weekend!
