Now let’s get started!

My chosen Sale-a-bration product to showcase tonight is the Happy Birthday to You stamp set, free with any $90 order. I just love the images in this 5 piece stamp set. The font of the sentiments is so feminine and it is so versatile for any occasion.

This card is a lovely monotone in Crumb Cake and White. The layer is a piece of Crumb Cake card, cut 5mm smaller than the card front. I used the stunning Parisian Flourish 3D Embossing Folder to emboss the layer before gluing it to the card front.

The image is stamped twice onto Crumb Cake card in Versamark ink, White Emboss Powder added and heat set. I fussy cut the entire image out and then the second one, I just fussy cut the flowers & leaves, so I could layer them on top for extra dimension.

In the past I would have coloured the flowers with the Craft White Ink and an AquaPainter, however, I used the White Chalk Marker. It was so much easier!

I added a few Rhinestones for some bling!

The inside I stamped the image in second generation stamping (stamped off once on plain paper before onto the card). The sentiment is stamped full strength.

This next card is created exactly the same way, however, I added some colour with Stampin’ Blends Markers to the flowers for a beautiful spot of colour. I changed up the Rhinestones with Champagne ones!

I even coloured the cake stand on this one to help it stand out more.

Occasions & Sale-a-bration, Stampin' Up!

The Stampin’ Up Sale of the Year has started and hello to the beginning of a new adventure!!!

Hello 2020 and the beginning of a brand new decade! However it has been a devastating end to 2019 and start to 2020 with the bushfires raging across Australia. I have family very close to the fires in East Gippsland, so I have been keeping a watchful eye on the news. I am trying to remain positive and staying indoors, as Melbourne is covered in a blanket of thick smoke, which is quite an eerie feeling. I can only image how bad it would be in the affected areas. In the hope that they are under control soon, I remain strong and want to share some inspiring news.

With Sale•A•Bration well under way and the release of the new Mini catalogue, what better time to start a new adventure with some of the awesome Art with Heart Team ladies.

Have you wanted to learn some new techniques, but don’t know where to begin? We have the answer for you!

We have created a series of written Tutorials, including instructions, measurements and full colour pictures, using current Stampin’ Up! products. These tutorial bundles are available free (for the month they become available) with any $50+ order from me or each bundle can be purchased for $15.

Memory Keeping/Project Life/Scrapbooking, Occasions & Sale-a-bration, Stampin' Up!

Rainbow Cake without the calories!

Reminder: today is the last day to purchase any last minute Holiday catalogue items as well as the Year End Clearance Close Out for retiring Holiday Catalogue items. The Clearance Rack also has some heavily reduced items, so check them out too!

Who doesn’t love cake?!!! Check out this amazing rainbow cake of glorious colour without the calories!!!

This white card fits into a DL business size envelope, so it is larger than the normal A5 card, but hey, it needed to be to fit all those layers of cake!

I took 7 colours of card stock and cut them into 1/2″ strips and glued them to a piece of scrap card, butting each one up against the other.  Then I cut off the overhanging pieces with scissors.

Once I had the right size, I then added some Snowfall Accents Puff Paint between each layer and used the Heat Tool to puff it up. How cool does it look, so realistic like icing oozing out!!!

Using the Leaf & Classic Label punches I was able to create the candles.
