Swaps for OnStage

Dear Crafters,

Now that I am in Brisbane for the OnStage Live Stampin’ Up! event for 3 days, I can share with you my swaps!

When we attend live events, we make card fronts only to swap with our demonstrator friends for the hour or so before it all begins. The excitement is rich and full of chatter as we meet new people and swap to gain ideas that we may not have thought of creating.

Anyway, here is what I created for this year’s event.

I am not a confident creator of the vintage style, but I do love it and wanted to have a go seeing as this stamp set has the lacy style stamp.

The floral image is coloured with Stampin’ Write Markers and the white flowers are coloured using the AquaPainter filled with bleach and dipped into a little White Craft Ink just for something a little bit different!

Basket for You

Dear Crafters,

Is your product list growing as fast as mine with the excitement of the 2016-2017 Annual Catalogue going live on Wednesday?

Here is a card that was created using one of the Hostess stamp sets, Basket for You.

Basket for You, #stampinup, Elegant Dots TIEF, #stampinupaustralia, 2016-2017 Hostess set, DIY, Feminine Handmade card

The image was stamped and die cut with the oval framelits, before water colouring with an Aqua Painter and ink pads in the new 2016-2018 In Colours. The basket is coloured using Sahara Sand and Tip Top Taupe.

The card base is the new Sweet Sugarplum, embossed with the Elegant Dots Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. The next layer is a piece of Marina Mist Designer Series paper and a layer of Silver Glimmer paper edged with the Banner Triple punch.

Basket for You, #stampinup, Elegant Dots TIEF, #stampinupaustralia, 2016-2017 Hostess set, DIY, Feminine Handmade card

The sentiment was stamped in coordinating ink and seeing as I don’t have the new Bunch of Banners Framelits yet, I had to fussy cut the sentiment! Poor me!!!!

I added the oval and the sentiment with dimensionals.

Anyone for a cuppa?

Dear Crafters,

Today’s card uses the Cups & Kettle Framelits dies from the Occasions catalogue which are on the Retiring products list, so get them before they are gone.

My colour scheme: Bermuda Bay, Melon Mambo, Wisteria Wonder & Whisper White.

Cups & Kettle Framelits, Feminine Handmade Card, stampinup, Occasions2016

Can you believe there is no stamping on this card?  Only on the envelope!

I love how there are so many colours, but using card stock and Have a Cuppa DSP is such a quick and easy way to create with these coordinating Stampin’ Up! products.

Some simple banners using the Banner Triple Punch layered over the card make for a fun background over the embossed card base (Large Polka Dot TIEF).

Cups & Kettle Framelits, stampinup, Feminine Handmade Card, Occasions2016

I die cut the teapot and teabag and added them with dimensionals and some White Baker’s Twine for the teabag string! Also some Venetian Crochet Trim under the teapot.

Don’t forget to stamp #imbringingbirthdaysback on the envelope!

Cups & Kettle Framelits, DIY, stampinup, Occasions2016

I think this is such a fun card that you could use for Mother’s Day, thinking of you, birthdays, anything at all!   What do you think?

Christmas

A Rudolf Christmas

Rudolf Christmas #stampinup

Dear Crafters,

Well, it is the last day of November and I have nearly finished creating my Christmas cards. Here is one final card for a very special friend who is going through a lot of challenges in her life and I know this will cheer her up immensely.

Rudolf Christmas #stampinup

Rudolf is made using the following punches:

  • 1/2″ circle punch (nose & feet)
  • 3/4″ circle punch (nose)
  • 2″ x 1-3/8″ oval punch (body)
  • Pansy punch (chest)
  • Owl builder punch (head & eyes)
  • Tree builder punch (antlers & ears)

I used smoky slate, sahara sand, whisper white, cherry cobbler and basic black cardstock.

The Merry Moments DSP Stack banner is cut with the Banner Triple punch, as is the silver glimmer card.

The sentiment is from the Holly Jolly Greetings stamp set.

Isn’t it just the cutest?!!!!
