Eclectic Expressions for Saleabration

Dear Crafters,

Today’s card was a quick throw together using the 2nd release Sale-a-bration stamp set, Eclectic Expressions. This set can be chosen for free with any $90+ order. Ask me how!

Don’t you think that circle image looks a bit like the moon? The way it is shaded just the reminds me of that! The sentiment is also from the same set and I stamped it in Dapper Denim ink.

I really like this colour combination: Berry Burst, Bermuda Bay, Dapper Denim & Peekaboo Peach.

Bird Banter on our 12th Wedding Anniversary!

Dear Crafters,

Today I share a card I made for my hubby. It’s our 12th Wedding Anniversary today and what better stamp set to use, than the Bird Banter! lol

Unfortunately he is working today, even though it is a public holiday here in Melbourne for Labour Day long weekend, but we will go out for dinner today to celebrate.

We aren’t the mussy, lovey dovey type, more typical of the bird banter type, so I got out my unloved Bird Banter stamp set and got to work. I really haven’t used this stamp set much at all, so it needed some love.

For a masculine card, I selected Lemon Lime Twist, Dapper Denim and added some Peekaboo Peach for a fun look.

On the inside of the card, I sponged the edges with a dauber with Lemon Lime Twist ink and stamped the sentiment in Smoky Slate ink. This sentiment is from the Best Birds stamp set.

I have coloured the images using a Blender Pen and inkpads. No surprises there, as I think you all know my love of shading that I get with this technique!

Now let’s get started!

Today I share my favourite Sale-a-bration product, and hands down, it has to be this bright and colourful Designer Series Paper, Bubbles & Fizz. Here are the colours:

Bubbles & Fizz DSP.jpg

I wanted to show you all the different designs, so what better way to do it, than with the herringbone technique!

I sliced the DSP into 1/2″ x 12″ strips. I took a piece of scrap card cut to 4″ x 5-5/8″ and covered it in Fast Fuse. Then I began placing the strips starting with the Lemon Lime Twist bubbles one across the centre. I kept adding strips in different directions, cutting them off at the edge of the card. This creates an amazing background!

The Stitched Shapes Circle Framelits, break up all the straight lines and helps take the eye to the feature of the bottle like a target.

I die cut the large bottle in white card from the Bottles & Bubbles Framelits dies. I used a sponge dauber to add some Lemon Lime Twist ink to it, applying more at the bottom and lighter at the top. Check out those gorgeous Glitter & Clear Epoxy Shapes on the bottle. I even used some of the extra strips to decorate the inside of the card!

For my next card, I have used the same Designer Series Paper with the Epic Celebrations stamp set from the Sale-a-bration brochure with the Trifold Shutter card technique.

I coloured the images using a blender pen and ink pads; Bermuda Bay and Smoky Slate. The Stitched Shapes Framelits were used to die cut the shoes image.

As you can see, this DSP can be used in many different ways, not just with the Bubble Over Suite!

Epic Celebrations in Triple Time

Dear Crafters,

Today I share a masculine kids card using the Epic Celebrations stamp set from the Saleabration brochure, which you can select for FREE with any $90 order!

I really struggle to create masculine cards, but when we used the Triple Time Stamping Technique in my last class, I thought this stamp set would be perfect.

The images are stamped in Basic Black ink and then coloured lightly with Watercolour Pencils and blended with Blender Pens.

Happy Valentine’s Day!

Dear Crafters,

Naturally today, I have to share a valentine’s day card, using product from the Painted with Love Suite, consisting of the Sure Do Love You stamp set and the Lots to Love Box Framelits dies from the Occasions catalogue. Purchase these as a bundle and you save 10%.

I don’t know if the man in your life is like mine and isn’t into too much fancy stuff on cards, so this card today is very simple. We actually don’t even celebrate Valentine’s Day, but what the heck, I have this bundle and so I’ve made something small.

I have also used the Painted Love Gold Vinyl Stickers, which coordinate with this bundle, on the front and inside of this card!

Let the Good Times Roll on Australia Day!

Dear Crafters,

Today I share this card using the Let the Good Times Roll bundle in the Occasions catalogue. You may remember I shared one earlier in January that was a feminine one, but today is my dads 70th birthday and I thought this was an appropriate card for him, as it brought back wonderful memories of the times he would take me on the rides at the theme parks while my mum & sister looked on in terror!!!! Dad & I loved them!!!

The base card measures 8¼” x 5⅞” and is folded in half.
The Whisper White insert measures 8″ x 5½”.

Stampin Up Let the Good Times Roll Masculine card

Are you ready to see the magic happen as you open up the card to reveal the 3D pop up inside?

Let the Good Times Roll Masculine inside card Stampin Up

Who wouldn’t get a thrill out of opening this card?!!!! Isn’t it just so cool?!!

This is a 14 piece photopolymer set, so it makes it super easy to line up the stamped images as well as using the coordinating dies to cut them out so no more fussy cutting! I have used lots of colour as I think it is such a fun card that screams colour!

Remember, here are the tips I found when using this bundle:

  1. use whisper white, not the thick whisper white card, it’s easier to fold the tracks
  2. do not score your white card all the way through. Only score each side about 1/2″, line up the die and then cut, then use a ruler to score across to the edge of the die cut
  3. Score along each edge of the tracks and the bottom edge before trying to fold them
  4. Add an extra layer over the framework of the roller coaster for strength
  5. it will fold flat, you just need patience in the manipulating of the tracks
  6. I made a quick 30 second video to show how it folds flat, view here. (I’m not into making videos, so no instructions with it, lol).
  7. You can also view the YouTube video by Brandi at the Stampin’ Up! home office here to see more about how to create the pop up section!

Bubble Over with a Birthday Brew

Dear Crafters,

Today I have a masculine card using the new Bubble Over Bundle. I love that we have a new masculine set available to us!

Check out that Designer Series Paper too. It’s called Bubbles & Fizz DSP and it is one of the FREE items you can choose with any $90 order during Sale-a-bration. I love that we can add this to our order and that it coordinates with a bundle.

And those Glitter & Clear Epoxy shapes are the perfect embellishment to finish off the coolness of these drinks. After the heat wave of over 40°C in Melbourne over the past few days, I sure could have done with some of these lol

The bottle caps are die cut in silver foil, which gives a realistic look to the tops. To see more on this bundle check out this short video.
