Tri-shutter Card with Sale-a-bration Irresistably Yours Designer Series Paper

I love this time of year when Sale-a-bration is in full swing and we can earn free Sale-a-bration goodies for every $90 (Aust) spent on Stampin'Up! products. This year there is a great choice of exclusive stamp sets, papers. embellishments, Project Life kit and packs of Blendabilities.

One of the packs of papers is the Irresistibly Yours Designer Series Paper. To look at it the card/paper looks all white. On closer inspection you can see a glossy embossed pattern on each 12x12 card. The cool thing about this card is it is designed to be coloured over to create lovely effects like on my tri-shutter card below.

 This card will be one we will make in my class sessions this year. I will be commencing classes again in February.

Bow Builder Punch Card

January is birthday month in our household, so I'd like to share the card I made for my eldest son for his birthday. I used the new Bow Builder punch from the new Stampin'Up! Occasions Catalogue. It was so much fun to use and made all the more easier by watching the associated Stampin'Up! video.

Here's my card.

I based my card on the sample in the Occasions catalogue but decided I wanted the bows to look like mens bow ties so I added the extra side strips. These are just extra centre wrap punch pieces as you get an extra one left over after creating your bows.

To see how to use the punch and create your bows watch this video by Stampin'Up!

The paper is a great new Designer Series Paper Stack called Adventure Bound. This stack has a great variety of masculine and outdoor designs/photos.

Items used to create this card were - 

Stamps - Balloon Bash
Ink - Craft white inkpad
Card - Sahara Sand, Cajun Craze, Early Espresso
Paper - Adventure Bound Designer Series paper stack
Punch - Bow Builder punch

I hope you have some fun using this punch creating some great cards and gift wrapping embellishments!

Christmas Bauble Cards - No. 2

It has taken me awhile to get back on the computer and show you some more Christmas Bauble cards coloured with Stampin'Up! Blendabilities pens.  I went with a non traditional colour scheme with both of these. I rather like them!

The background stamps used were the background stamp I Love Lace on the Rich Razzleberry card and on the Pumpkin Pie card I used the tree branch stamp from the Holiday catalogue set Beauty of the Season.

I love my Gorgeous Grunge stamp set for creating spatter backgrounds!

Thanks for looking.

Fall Fest Birthday Card

Hi! Sorry I've been off the radar for awhile. I've been on holidays and settling into a new job so card creating has taken a bit of a back seat for a few weeks. I'm now back in the saddle so to speak as I needed a card for my F.I.L's birthday this weekend and I wanted to christen one of my new stamp sets - Fall Fest from the current Holiday catalogue.

It's a pretty basic card to create and quick and easy to do as well. The card size is 6x6 inches.

Colours used in card and ink are Hello Honey, Mossy Meadow, Cherry Cobbler, Early Espresso. The leaves were stamped onto Shimmery White for an added highlight to the card.

The Fall Fest stamp set has some lovely co-ordinating products to go it. On this card I added one of the cute Autumn Wooden Elements. You can see all the products on page 46 of the Holiday catalogue.

The sentiment comes from the stamp set Big News 134018.

Drop by again soon to see what we will be creating in my Christmas Extravaganza classes this month.

Christmas Bauble Cards - No 1

Time sure gets away from me sometimes especially when I am on holidays! I reckon it is alright to start showing off some of the
Christmas cards I have made. These Christmas Bauble cards are from a series I made for my display poster used at the past few papercrafting shows I have taken part in. I'll show you a couple each post.

This stamp is so lovely to use with the Blendabilities pens. I had a wonderful time colouring these cards. Here is the first one of my cards.

Do you like the silver "sprigs"? They are from untwirling the silver bakers twine. And here is the second card for this post.

Like I said you can have so much fun colouring this stamp!The sparkle does not show up well in this pic but the white areas have been glossed over with dazzling details glitter glue. The pic below shows the sparkle a bit better.

  You should come back again soon and see my other colour options!
