Love & Happiness

Love and Happiness, a message of love for a young couple getting married on the weekend. It gave me so much pleasure to make this card for my Bible Study Group to give.

The stamp sets by Stampin’ Up! are Beautiful Friendship and Dandelion Wishes, they work so well together. I just love that font…don’t you!

This card I made with pages inside so there was plenty of room for everyone to leave a message. Along with a spot for the Gift Card to be slipped into.

The envelope decorated to match just finished the gift.

Wrapped in Plaid

This months Card Class we focused on the ‘Wrapped in Plaid’ Suite from the Stampin’ Up!® Holiday Catalogue. Trying out the different products in the suite and adding a few extra for some added fun.

In this class we make three cards learning different techniques or different card folds.

Card 1

This card is a very non-traditional card using Whisper White & Granny Apple Green in colour. With a little bit of Silver Metallic Thread and Shimmery White embossing powder to give it some ‘Bling”.

Card 2

Here we CASED the card from the catalogue, showing how the catalogue is a wonderful resource for card ideas and inspiration. We did make a few little changes to our card. Instead of using the Stitched Rectangles to cut the card front as in the catalogue, we used the Subtle Embossing Folder to add texture.

Card 3

This card was CASED from Lori Pinto. I found this card on Pinterest while looking for some inspiration. It’s a very simple card to make but fun to be able to make something that is not just your side opening card.

I hope you have also found some inspiration in these cards. All three of these cards were simple to make and a lot of fun.

All the products I used in these cards will be listed below and are linked to my On-Line Store. If you have any questions please contact me and I will get back to you as soon as I can. Please leave me a comment below so I know you have visited. Have a lovely day…Keep on Stampin!

You make me smile, Friend…Part 2

Thank you for visiting my Blog today. Back in October I shared with you a card I made using the Pigment Sprinkles by Stampin’ Up! Not long after making the cards I went to my 40yr School Reunion and I took with me two little presents for my best friends. I very quickly took photo’s before packing them away in my bags.

Since then I have made a video also showing how I made these cards. So today I thought I would share these with you.

The gifts I gave my friends were these lovely Key Chains, each one matched the box perfectly.

Here is the video on how I made the cards. I hope you enjoy!

 

 

 

Dino Days Cards

Look, at what we made in this October card class!

Aren’t these so cute….It was so much fun playing with Dino Days Suite by Stampin’ Up! Found on Page 99 in the Annual Catalogue.

Card # 1.

This Fun Fold card is simple to make. The only stamping is on the front panel and on a panel on the reverse side of the card to write on, the back panel we used the Dinorour Designer Series Paper.

You can find the instructions for this card by clicking HERE.

Card #2.

This card I CASE’ed from Sarahs Stampin Retreat found on Pinterest. This is such a cute Dino stamped in Lovely Lipstick, with Mango Melody spine onto a scrap of Whisper white cardstock. Then cut out using the matching Dino Days Dies. The Birthday sentiment is from Botanical Bliss stamp set and was embossing in White Embossing Powder onto Peacock Blue Cardstock..

Card #3.

Re-United!

Thank you for visiting my Blog today, I hope you enjoy my memories as much as I have in sharing them with you.

Re-United!…the story behind my page…..

On the 5th of October my husband and I went to Leeton for my ‘Leeton High School 1979 Year 10 Reunion’. It was great seeing everyone again.

There were 2 friends I was waiting to see and one of them was Coral, my best friend since Year 6 Primary School. We had not seen each other since my parents moved away from Leeton, approx. 20 years. It took a little while as we both stood back from each other, maybe a little shy, not sure on what the other thought. But before too long we were in each others arms hugging and crying together. The long awaited moment had come. We look a bit older, she is now a grandmother and my children now all grown up. But standing in our old school yard it felt like all those years had come back and we were together again.

My husband was talking photo’s for me and he captured the moment we hugged…no words were spoken, we didn’t need to say much we were so glad to be together again.

The idea for my page came from a monthly Challenge on Scrapbooking Gobal Stampin’ Up!.

Layout Sketches, Page Maps, Page Templates…

Layout sketches are great if your not sure where to start, they give you an idea to start designing from. You can turn them around, add different elements or just copy just like they are.

To find them search any of the names above on Pinterest. HERE is a link to ones that I have saved to my Pinterest Board – Scrapbook Page Ideas

The circle images were stamped using the Swirly Frames stamps and stamped with Craft Stampin’ Pad -Whisper White. Once dry the circles were coloured using Stampin’ Up!® Watercolour Pencils.

Monthly Team Blog Hop October 2019 – God’s Peace

Thank you for joining us for our Stampin’ Up!® Demonstrator Monthly Blog Hop! As you follow the hop I hope you find lots of ideas and inspiration. We are a group of Stampin’ Up!® Demonstrators from around the world taking part in a training program helping us to build a successful Stampin’ Up!® Business and reach some of our goals. Thank you, we really appreciate your support.

Christmas is fast approaching…have you started your shopping yet?…What about your Christmas cards?

I’m starting to get mine ready now, can’t wait to the last minute. I love giving hand made cards, it makes the gift of giving so personal even something as small as a card.

Stampin’ Up!® have some amazing Christmas stamp sets and bundles in their Holiday Catalogue this year. Sometimes its hard to choose which one you want or maybe you just want them all! One that I really wanted was ‘God’s Peace” because of the Biblical message it shares.

With this card I wanted the message from Luke 2:10-11 to be the focal point, so I kept the card design very simple.

The technique used is called Resist Embossed, its not hard to do and I think looks very effective. The Message isn’t lost or over powered by the image and the image is still there.

How do you do Resist Embossed Technique?

With all the stamping I used the Stamparatus, so I could make sure I got good clean images.

  1. Stamped the Bible Verse Luke 2:10-11 or background stamp you are using.
  2. Rub Embossing Buddy over the area where image was  to be stamped
  3. Stamp image in VersaMark, and heat emboss using  Clear Stampin’ Embossing Powder. * If you embossed the image first and then stamped the verse you would have parts of the verse missing where it goes over the embossing . As the ink resists the embossing. So by stamping the verse first and then emboss you still have the verse intact.
  4. With a sponge or dauber very lightly blend colour over the top of the embossed image blending the edges out to white. The embossed image then comes to life like magic. Use a soft cloth to rub off any excess ink stilling on the surface of the embossed area.

You make me smile, Friend

Have you ever had an idea, that just rolled around in your head until you tried it ?

I have had this idea rolling around in my head for a few weeks…..

Bright intense colours blending into one another, with some sort of design over the top. Well my head was spinning for a couple of weeks with these ideas, working out how I could do it.

The trick is when you get these ideas run with it, play and have some fun. It may not work the first time you try it, but then it just may.

This card was made using Stampin’ Up!® Products

  • Pigment Sprinkles
  • Basic Pattern Decorative Masks
  • White Craft Ink
  • Shimmery White Cardstock

I was so pleased with the way my idea came together I made another 2 cards.

The Stampin’ Up!® stamp sets and Dies used are

  • Bloom & Grow Photopolymer Stamp Set
  • Beautiful Day Cling-Mount Stamp Set 
  • Well Said Cling Stamp Set
  • Well Written Dies.
