Storybook Gnomes

Thanks for joining me on another Creativity Abounds Blog Hop, I have created a great card using the Storybook Gnomes.

I only received this in my order a couple of weeks ago and it is so much fun, I don’t know why I didn’t get it sooner. I have so many ideas running around my head and I just want to play…LOL!

You can find the Storybook Gnomes in the Stampin’® Up! July- December Mini Catalogue on pages 42 & 43. It is a suite Collection so you can order everything on one number – Storybook Gnomes 159630 or you can order by each product… REMEMBER order the Stamps and Dies as a Bundle and get the 10% discount Kindest Gnomes Bundle 159626

I have put together a PDF Tutorial on this card because I knew you would be asking me for it. All the measurements are listed in both Imperial and metric. You can just down load and use.

You may be starting here or have come from someone else’s blog – either way there is a list at the end of this post to help you move around all the different blogs and get many amazing ideas. We all have our country listed – so if you are looking for a demonstrator in your country, these demonstrators would love to look after you with your Stampin’ Up! ® shopping or if you would like to join our Stampin’ Up!® teams.

Storybook Gnomes – Live with Michele

So tell me, what do you think of the Storybook Gnomes Suite Collection by Stampin’ Up! ® ?

This is such a simple suite to use….if your not sure on how to colour the images. Then the Storybook Gnome DSP is already done for you and the dies that come in the Kindest Gnome Bundle will cut the Gnomes and Mushroom houses. It makes card making so quick and simple. But of course if you want to step it up…stamp the images onto Basic White cardstock and colour them in with you Blends.

For my card I kept it simple and die cut my DSP…see the video linked below.

Measurements Used for my Storybook Gnomes Card…

  • Card Base Balmy Blue – 10.5 x 29.9cm, score @ 14.9cm
  • Card Mat Basic White – 10 x 14.4cm
  • Card Front DSP – 9.7 x 14.1cm

Tree Lot Dies

On ‘Live with Michele’ this week I created a card using Stampin’ Up!® Trees for Sale Stamps (mini Catalogue) and Tree Lot Dies (Sale-A-Bration).

Sale-A-Bration finishes this week on Wednesday 31st August….and these dies will no longer be available.

They are so cute and great for building a scene. Here I have tried to create a scene on the beach at Christmas….a lot of families in Australia spend Christmas and Christmas holidays on beaches or near water, eating seafood and playing beach cricket.

Building scenes and telling stories with dies are so much fun.

If you enjoyed also enjoy making story scenes using Dies then come along to my Birthday Piggy Class in September.

The Birthday Piggy

Weeeee!….these were so much fun to make!……..So I have decided to share them with you

The Birthday Piggy was so much fun to play with and I have made three cute little easel cards using nearly all the dies that come with the bundle. They are all so cute, I don’t know which is my favorite.

So I have decided to do an Online Class, giving you a step by step instructions via a Zoom Meeting. I hope you can join me, as I want to share the fun with you.

To Purchase…CLICK the BUY NOW…check for shopping card in the bottom right hand corner of your screen

We will be using Stampin’ Blends to colour our pigs and Blending brushes to colour the backgrounds. The dies that come in the bundle add all those extra details.

The Birthday Piggy stamps can be found in both the Annual and Mini Catalogues but ONLY as a stamp set- No Dies

On the 1st September to 30th September you will be able to purchase The Birthday Piggys as a Bundle -With Dies, along with another 5 bundles to choose from. (See below)

This is a special promotion – Perfect Partners and all the details are below. If you already have the stamps, you will be able to purchase the matching dies. If you don’t have the stamps then buy them as a BUNDLE and get a 10% discount. This is a one off special, so don’t miss out.

So PLACE YOUR ORDER on the 1st September and get the “The Birthday Piggy Bundle” and Join my Class on the 23rd September

Perfect Partners

Some things are great on their own but become epic when they are paired with something else: cereal and milk, toast and butter, Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers. We may be biased, but our favorite combo is our stamp sets and dies—and that’s what the Perfect Partners promotion is all about! 

We created six new dies that coordinate with stamp sets in the 2022–2023 Annual Catalogue and the July–December 2022 Mini Catalogue. These coordinating dies will only be available during this promotion and will not be offered in any catalogue.  
These stamp sets and dies are available separately or as a bundle. By buying the bundle, you will save 10% off the retail price. 

Put these wonderful stamp sets and dies together for more paper-crafting fun! Order now!

Brightest Beauty Simple Scrapbook Page

Last week on ‘Live with Michele’ I created a stamped scrapbook page using Stampin’ Up! ® Brightest Beauty Bundle, Pretty medallion stamp and Crane of Fortune (Discontinued from Jan-Jun 2022 Mini)

This week I used my created sheet of DSP and completed a scrapbook page for my Wedding Album. This is a simple layout, with lots of layers in mats surrounding the photo’s. I wanted to keep it simple as there is a lot going on the stamped page.

A layer of vellum was added under the photo’s to give a little separation between the photo’s and printed cardstock. The back ground is busy and I wanted to tone it down slightly but still see the images coming through.

Both photo’s are the same size and I wanted to give the impression that one was larger than the other. To do this I did larger mats and decorated one so it stood out from the page more.The second photo i extended the bottom mat in depth to allow area for jornalling.

Brightest Beauty- Creativity Abounds Blog Hop

Welcome to Creativity Abounds Blog Hop.   We are a group of very keen Stampin’ Up!® Demonstrators from all around the world that are coming together to share our creative ideas with you.  We are happy that you can join us and hope that we can Inspire you to make creations of your own.

Our theme this month is Anything But Christmas. This is where we can use any product from the Stampin’ Up! ® Catalogues and make a card that doesn’t have a Christmas theme and as we are now getting closer to Christmas and the Stampin’ Up! ® Mini Catalogue is all about the Holiday Seasons it’s good to just make something not holiday related.

My cards in both the Blog Hop and the Tutorial focus on….

Brightest Beauty

Last Friday on my ‘Live with Michele’ I created a stamped 12 x 12″ Designer Series Paper(DSP) to be used in my Wedding Scrapbook Album. I also created a piece on A4 Basic White Cardstock and decided to use this piece to create this card.

The base of my card I used Sahara Sand Cardstock and made a mat using the Split Card Textures Dies. The mat piece I used the Blending Brushes and Soft Suede Stampin’ Pad to go around the edges and die cut areas to add a little colour.

The DSP I cut down slightly smaller than my mat and tore down one side at a angle giving me a rough edge. I again added Soft Suede ink to all my edges….I just wanted to give it a earthy sort of tone.

The sentiment is from the Go to Greetings Stamp Set. This is such a great set using four basic greetings like – Happy Birthday, Just a Note, Thank You and Thinking of you and 3 different fonts. This will be my go to set for sentiments. The sentiment was die cut out using the frame die from the Brightest Beauty Bundle.

I finished of the card by adding a generous triple bow, and the sentiment just sits below but with parts of the bow under caught under it. Some Rustic Metallic Adhesive Backed Dots

On the inside of my card I have added an insert using a piece of DSP where I hadn’t stamped all the way. So if you don’t like adding lots of writing it’s perfect.
