SALE-A-BRATION SATURDAY – SUMMER SHADOW DIES!

For our Sale-A-Bration Saturday I thought we would check out the Summer Shadow Dies.

These dies co-ordinate with the Shaded Summer Stamp set available in the Annual Catalogue.

Check out some samples with these dies and with the stamp set too. Maybe you hadn’t noticed the stamp set that much in the catalogue. I know I hadn’t.

(These are created by Stampin’ Up! Artists).

The Summer Shadow dies have the outline die that works with the flower image in the stamp set. Then you can diecut some other flowers or leaf shapes.

You can create a simple leaf accent too shown on both these cards below.

The stamped images are heat embossed in white on 3 different colour card pieces and diecut with the flower shape.

These are the Summer Shadow Dies with detailed dies and the more solid shape for the flowers and leaves. They can be layered together.

Below is the Shaded Summer Stamp Set you can find in the Annual Catalogue. Or see it online -> HERE.

The Summer Shadow Dies can be chosen as your free choice for Sale-A-Bration with orders over $180 AUD. Why not include the Shaded Summer Stamp set in your order so you can use create with them together.

In Australia? You can order from my store -> HERE. Please use the Host Code: GS9S4AY9

Don’t forget to choose your Sale-A-Bration choice. You will be reminded a the end if you do forget.

Or you can contact me directly and I can help you with your order.

Enjoy your weekend,

THE DOUBLE LAYER DUO TECHNIQUE + VIDEO!

I recently came across a card idea in a magazine I was reading. I thought it looked cool. I wanted to replicate it with our inks and stamps. So I did! I put together a video for our Friday Flicks for you to see how to create it yourself.

These are the cards. I call it the Double Layer Duo Technique. It’s an interesting twist on the Double Layer Stamping Technique if you have tried that before.

I have used the gorgeous Delicate Dahlias stamp set. This works so well.

For this technique you will want a stamp set with a number of images. I can’t wait to try this with some other stamps.

Here is the video.

The Delicate Dahlias stamp set is available as a free choice for Sale-A-Bration with your qualifying orders over $180 AUD. There are only a few weeks left to grab this.

If you need to place an order and you are in Australia I would love to help you.

I hope you get to make one. Let me know.

Have a great day,

WEDNESDAY’S WOW! #128 – SENDING CARD LOVE!

This might seem an unusual one for a Wednesday’s WOW! But I think it fits nicely. We make cards so why not send them out.

Wednesday’s WOW! #128Send Card Love. Not only does it give us the warm, fuzzy feeling but it really makes others day. We need to send more cards.

I can vouch for this. I have received some gorgeous Card Love recently. I wanted to share them with you but also to make a point to send those cards out. It’s nice to know others are thinking of us.

So can I challenge you on this Wednesday. Grab a card or two you have in your stash. I know you have them. If not then make 2 of a card. Then send them out. I know that it will bring a smile to someone’s day. We need to do more of this.

Thank You to so many of my friends who have sent me some “love in a card” recently. It made my day. 🙂

Have a great day,

Jenny

STAMPIN’ UP! FEELS LIKE HOME WITH PENCILS!

On the weekend I had a Zoom Craft and Chat with some stamping friends. It was so nice to connect and chat and craft together. (You could join next time too) 🙂

I did some colouring during it. I’m not a big fan of colouring I will say. I find it hard to get the right shading. I coloured some images with the Stampin’ Blends and some with Watercolor Pencils.

The image from Feels Like Home stamp set was one I coloured. I do like colouring with Watercolor Pencils better.

I put the card together and used the paper from the Tidings of Christmas Designer Series Paper. It is a Christmas one but the colouring worked well with the image.

For the sentiment I masked some words with tape while inking it and then removed the tape to stamp just the “thank you”.

The Feels Like Home stamp set is one of the free choices for Sale-A-Bration with your orders over $90 AUD. It’s a sweet image. There are other free choices too with your orders. You can check them out ->HERE.

In Australia? You can order in my store (use the link just above) and don’t forget to add your Sale-A-Bration choice and if you add the Host Code: GS9S4AY9 too.

Or you can contact me directly.

Thanks for shopping with me.

Have a great day. Keep on creating. 🙂

BEAUTIFULLY PENNED PAPER WEEK – HAVE A COLOURED BACKGROUND!

Another card for our Beautifully Penned Paper Week. Are you getting lots of ideas yet for this paper?

On this card you can colour the paper to create a lovely background. Not much more is needed really. Add a sentiment and add some pretty ribbon.

I have coloured this one in Mint Macaron. I have to say very quickly too. Oops! And my Dark Stampin’ Blends ran out. You get the idea though right. I thought I would show you anyway.

How cool though that the Soft Succulent ribbon matches so well. Add a little sparkle with the Be Dazzling Paper and you are good to go. 🙂

What other colours could you see yourself doing?

You would have seen the Beautifully Penned Designer Series Paper a lot now not just on my blog here but elsewhere on your internet travels. It is available as a free choice with your orders over $90 AUD for Sale-A-Bration.

Do you need to order any supplies to get creating??

BEAUTIFULLY PENNED PAPER WEEK – COLOUR THE FLOWERS!

Another project for you for Beautifully Penned Paper Week.

With the black and white paper prints you can colour the flowers like I have on this card. These were added to a different print of the Beautifully Penned Designer Series Paper.

The card base and ribbon were Pale Papaya but the flowers were actually coloured with the Light Pumpkin Pie Stampin’ Blends. (I think it was the light one anyway). The sentiment label was diecut with one of the Scalloped Contours Dies.

You would have seen the Beautifully Penned Designer Series Paper a lot now not just on my blog here. It is available as a free choice with your orders over $90 for Sale-A-Bration.

WEDNESDAY’S WOW! #127 – BEAUTIFULLY PENNED SWEET PAPER NOTES!

It’s Wednesday WOW! #127 and Beautifully Penned Paper Week. What a double bonus!

What about making some cute little Paper notes with pretty papers. I used the Beautifully Penned Designer Series Paper for these. They are so easy – and sweet!

These are little Customer Thank You notes for those of you who ordered this month. Are you getting one?

HOW TO CREATE YOUR OWN

Cut the paper to 15cm x 10cm. Score at 7.5cm. (6″ x 4″ score at 3″). It’s that easy!

I added a white card insert inside to write on. The small flower from the Delicate Dahlias stamp set (another Sale-A-Bration choice) was stamped inside to match the sentiment tag I added on the outside.

The sentiment is from the Many Messages stamp set and diecut with a die from the Tasteful Labels Dies.

This Beautifully Penned Designer Series Paper is a free choice for Sale-A-Bration with orders over $90.

You can see more of the prints on this paper -> HERE.

BEAUTIFULLY PENNED WEEK – DAY 1!

We are featuring the Beautifully Penned Week all week this week. Because it is so lovely and so versatile. Be sure to check in each day. (Better still be sure to follow my blog if you haven’t already so you don’t miss out).

I did start last post with our Sale-A-Bration Saturday so go back to that one if you missed it.

Today’s project.

For this card I used the Delicate Dahlias stamp set which is another free choice for Sale-A-Bration with orders over $180 AUD. It is very pretty with the detail you can get.

I used 2 prints of the Beautifully Penned DSP on this card and went with an angle on the floral pattern.

The scallop rectangle is diecut with one from the Stitched So Sweetly Dies and used some Highland Heather Grosgrain Ribbon.

The Beautifully Penned DSP is available as a free choice with your orders over $90 for Sale-A-Bration.

You can contact me directly to order OR head to my store -> HERE. Please use the Host Code: 2N2FPKZB

SALE-A-BRATION SATURDAY – BEAUTIFULLY PENNED DESIGNER SERIES PAPER!

We have so many lovely papers for Sale-A-Bration this round. The Beautifully Penned Designer Series Paper is just one. I thought we should take a look at this one today.

This paper has 12 sheets of patterned paper: 4 each of 3 double-sided designs in 12″ x 12″ size. It comes in varying black and white patterns. You will notice that many of the patterns are similar to the Hand-Penned DSP in the Annual Catalogue.

You can choose to colour the papers or leave them as they are. I have been using them a lot recently. Some I have coloured and some I have left as they are. I have too many cards to just share in one post so I think this will be a Beautifully Penned Week! Watch out for this in the coming week.

Just to get your started I will share a few projects.

These cute pillow boxes (made by Stampin’ Up! artists) are created with the Pretty Pillow Box Dies.

For this card (also created by Stampin’ Up! artists) several patterns of the paper was used. The paper was diecut with the floral background and the white card piece was matted on the stripy pattern. Some little flowers were fussy cut out and added.

Here is a card I created recently with the papers. Don’t wasted even the little strips. They will all co-ordinate together on one card.

I love black with POPS of pink. This is Polished Pink. You could use any colour though to make it POP. What colour would you use??

The stamp set is from the Color and Contour stamp set.

This Beautifully Penned Designer Series Paper is a free choice for Sale-A-Bration with orders over $90.

You can see more of the prints on this paper -> HERE.

POCKET CONCERTINA BOOKLET WITH YOU’RE A PEACH PAPER!

Yesterday I shared the Concertina Card that I made for my daughter’s 21st. Today I wanted to share with you this special little booklet I made. Of course using the You’re A Peach Designer Series Paper.

It was just a little booklet with some inspirational sentiments for her.

It’s small in size and tied up with some Pale Papaya ribbon. The peach is cut from the You’re A Peach paper.

When you open it there is a little concertina piece. I have held it down here in the photo with the Bone Folder so I could take the photo.

Folding out the strip of card there is a special sentiment on each section. I used a number of different stamp sets for the sentiments and for the images.

This was really fun to create (and made from the heart to my gorgeous girl).

I will share the dimensions for it another time. I only have them in metric at the moment.

Hope you like it.

Hope your week is going ok wherever you are in the world. Thanks for visiting me and take care.

Jenny
