Today I can also finally share some of the excitement from the Sydney OnStage event held at Luna Park last Saturday. Here is a photo of Catherine and I at the entrance to Lunda Park and the stunning Ferris Wheel with the Harbour Bridge behind! We had perfect sunny weather for the 2 days we were in Sydney.

We were lucky enough to get a table right up the front and here are a few of us from our Art With Heart Team. We had a fantastic time and loved receiving new product and of course, the brand new annual catalogue!!!!

I was lucky enough to be chosen to be a display stamper and here are my projects!

A few weeks ago, I received a big brown box with 3 of the new In Colour Ink Pads, 2 stamp sets (Beautiful Bouquet & Paint Play), Lovely Laurel thinlits, ribbons, embellishments, In Colour card stock, Pretty Label Punch and the Wood Textures Designer Series Paper stack to name a few, to create these projects!

Over the next few months I’ll be able to show you more about my projects and better close up pictures, but what do you think of my display? Did you attended the event in Sydney, and did you see my display?

And here is the view from our hotel room which was absolutely stunning and I just had to share it with you!

Hey chicky, lets shake em!

Dear Crafters,

Happy Boxing Day!

Are you hitting the Boxing Day sales in town or are you staying clear of them like me, and enjoying the peace and quiet at home, stamping?!!!

Today I have a cute shaker card using the new Occasions and Sale-a-bration products available from 4th January!

I think this stamp set Hey, Chick is going to be very popular! These funny little chickens just make me smile 🙂

I love a good shaker card too, so I added some brown rice inside my shaker card. It just reminds me of chicken food lol.

To create the background, I added ink to the embossing folder before running it through the Big Shot. This gives the effect of chicken wire!

I coloured the chickens with our new Watercolour Pencils and used a Blender Pen to blend the colour. You will be totally amazed at how well it works on Whisper White card, Shimmery White card and even better, the Watercolour Paper!

And don’t forget to decorate the inside of your card too!

Pop up Slider Card

Dear Crafters,

Happy New Year to you all, I hope that your celebrations were safe and wonderful and your year ahead is full of love, laughter, happiness & of course loads of crafting!

Today I share with you, a new technique that has been around for many years, but I have not made until now. It’s the pop up slider card.

Slider Card Balloon Celebration Bouquet #stampinup

I love new products and today I have used a few of them lol. These are from the Occasions catalogue and a couple of the FREE sets from the Sale-a-bration brochure which goes live on 5th January 2016!

I used the Balloon Celebration stamp set and the coordinating Balloon Bouquet Punch. This punch has 2 size balloons on it, so it is fantastic value!  I also used the Hello stamp set and Perfect Pairings stamp set, both of which can be earned FREE during Sale-a-bration. All you have to do is spend $90 and choose 1 FREE item, spend $180 and choose 2 FREE items and so on.

Here’s how it works. As you pull the ribbon tab at the top, the middle section of the card opens up to reveal hidden messages.

Push the tab back in and the card closes up.

Colours I’ve used are: Mint Macaron, Pool Party, Melon Mambo & Whisper White.

How cute is this technique??!!! I don’t know why it took me so long to give it a go, but I can see myself making many more of these fun cards.

Love is Mother’s Day

Dear Crafters,

It’s only another week and half until Sale-a-bration ends for another year 😦

Today, I share a card using the Love is Kindness stamp in some of my favourite colours; Crisp Cantaloupe, Calypso Coral, Lost Lagoon and Sahara Sand.

Love is Kindness

The base card is Sahara Sand with another layer stamped with the Dictionary background stamp in coordinating ink and sponged edges.

I then added a layer of the Sahara Sand Lace Trim from the Occasions Catalogue. The next layer is Crisp Cantaloupe with Lost Lagoon and the top layer is Whisper White. On this top layer I stamped the Love is Kindness image in Black ink and coloured the stems with Lost Lagoon and the blooms with the Calyspo Coral Blendabilities. The wrap around the flowers was stamped again onto Sahara Sand card and fussy cut before adding to the white card.

I added some Crisp Cantaloupe sequins to the bottom with glue dots!

Love is Kindness

I even added a coordinating Calyspo Coral ribbon bow.

I stamped the inside of the card as well with the Dictionary background stamp, something that is a must in all my cards, as you know, along with the envelope!

Love is Kindness  Love is Kindness

Aren’t they just stunning colours together?!!

Blendabilities Update

I am VERY sad to share this news with you that the Blendabilties alcohol markers have been discontinued, as some have arrived dry to our customers. In a nutshell, the manufacturer is unable to correct the problem and provide Stampin’ Up! with a solution. Therefore the product line has been discontinued. The good news is that Stampin’ Up! is committed to ONLY selling the BEST products available, so rather than ship a defective product and continue to send replacements, they have made this decision.

The Memento Black Ink pad and refill will still be available (and that’s great news because it’s an awesome black inkpad!)

What should you do?

If you currently have a pack of Blendabilities on backorder that you purchased, do nothing, you will receive a refund from Stampin’ Up! within the next month.

If you feel you have a defective package of Blendabilities, please contact Stampin’ Up! Demo Support at 1 800 787 867.

If you need ideas for colouring your images, we still have our great Stampin’ Write Markers, our Blender Pens, and our AquaPainters to use with your Stampin’ Up! ink pads.

Note: due to the unavailability of the Blendabilities as part of the advertised Sale-a-bration offering, some of the other Sale-a-bration products MAY run out. Stamp sets will be available through to 31st March, but the other items MAY risk selling out.

There is under 3 weeks left of Sale-a-bration, so if you want your free gifts, be sure to add them to your order of $90+.

Have a wonderful day!

Sale-a-bration, 6th January – 31st March 2015

Best Day Ever

Dear Crafters,

How did you enjoy yesterdays blog hop? I thought there were some wonderful creations for our inspiring team members!

Well today, I continue the theme of my blog post and created another card using the same stamp set, DSP and colour combinations.

Best Day Ever

The base card is Calypso Coral stamped with the coordinating ink. The Soft Suede layer, I punched with the scallop border punch and added a piece of the Best Year Ever Designer Paper. I used the banner punch to add some interest to the side of the card.

The sentiment from the Best Day Ever Stamp set is stamped on Whisper White card stock in Coastal Cabana ink and mounted onto Calypso Coral Core’dinations card stock.

Best Day Ever  Best Day Ever

I added the ribbon, but wasn’t sure about a bow, I thought that it didn’t suit the style of this card, so I just made a very simple knot.

Be sure to decorate the inside panel of your card and even the envelope!

Best Day Ever

I would love you to comment below with your thoughts on this card.
