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.

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

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.

Butterflies, feminine, Flowers, Handmade Cards, Mother's Day, Stampin' Up!

Floral Wings

Dear Crafters,

Today I use the Hostess stamp set, Floral Wings which also coordinates with our Bold Butterfly Framelits.

I have no idea what this style is called, but I find it quite effective. I cut down a piece of Whisper White card by 5mm on each side. I stamped the butterfly image in the centre and then measured in the same distance from each side towards the centre and drew a line down, but not across the wings. I then cut out that centre portion leaving the butterfly intact.

My colour scheme: Blushing Bride, Melon Mambo, Mint Macaron and Whisper White.

Butterflies Thinlits, Foral Wings,Feminine Handmade card, Farewell, Stampin Up

I then stamped the floral images along each edge and added the sentiment.

I embossed the base card with the Elegant Dots TIEF using the Big Shot machine, before adhering the stamped piece.

What do you think?

Sleigh Ride

Sleigh Ride #stampinup

Dear Crafters,

Today I used the Sleigh Ride Edgelits & Delicate Ornament Thinlits dies to create a non-traditional coloured Christmas card!

The base card is Blushing Bride with a piece of Very Vanilla embossed with the Elegant Dots Textured Impressions Embossing Folder on the top.

Sleigh Ride #stampinup

I die cut the Sleigh Ride Edgelits in Pool Party and Blushing Bride, layered them onto some Very Vanilla cardstock and die cut the Delicate Ornament Thinlits to create the Bauble.

 

Sleigh Ride #stampinup

I added some retired Pool Party ribbon and tied a bow in a piece of Pool Party Twine to add to the top of the bauble.

Holiday Catalogue is almost here!

Dear Crafters,

Today I share a Sneak Peek card using some of the brand new goodies from the Holiday Catalogue that goes live tomorrow!!!! Be sure to check back in the morning to view the catalogue online and write up your Christmas Wish List. There is sure to be plenty of products that you are going to love!

Anyway, here is my first card to share with you.

#stampinup Christmas Cuties

This stamp set is called Christmas Cuties, and this little angel was the very first one from the set that I had to ink up!

I used the brand new Black Archival ink which is also new in this catalogue. It can be used to stamp and then water colour the image and it doesn’t bleed. Wahoo, it’s amazingly awesome!

The next product is the Designer Series Paper stack that I have used for the banners. This pack is called Merry Moments DSPS.

I layered the DSP banners (made using the Triple Banner Punch) and then embossed the whole front of the card using the Elegant Dots TIEF before adding the glitter banner.

#stampinup Christmas Cuties

The Angel was die cut using the Lots of Labels Framelits and the next largest framelit for the Cherry Cobbler layer.

I coloured the image using the Aqua Painter and ink pads, before adding some Dazzling Diamonds to her wings and some Gold Metallic Thread behind.

Babies First

Dear Crafters,

Today I share a baby boy card. Who doesn’t love making baby cards and this was no exception.

I have used Marina Mist and Soft Sky as my colours with some So Saffron for the ducks.

The Babies First Framelits make it so easy to create and there is very little stamping, only the sentiment!

#stampinup Baby Boy

How cute is the background? I layered some of the ducks onto the Soft Sky card and embossed it with the new Elegant Dots TIEF for some added texture.

You’ve Got This

Dear Crafters,

You've Got This #stampinup

Today I share a card I made using our Art with Heart Team Challenge!

Being stuck at home with this fractured ankle, what else am I to do, but spend my days crafting. So that is what I did!

I used the middle column as my starting point, seeing as my favourite colour is blue, I love flowers and embossing gives such an amazing texture to my cards.

I have used Pool Party and Island Indigo as my colours, along with some Whisper White.

You've Got This #stampinup

I stamped the image in Island Indigo and then used the ink and Aqua Painter to colour it. I fussy cut the image and mounted it onto two of the Lots of Labels Framelits, one embossed with the Elegant Dots TIEF.
