EXTRA GORGEOUSNESS FOR SALE-A-BRATION WITH THE SPRINGTIME FOILS PAPER!

The gorgeousness just keeps on coming for Sale-A-Bration.  Yesterday was the 2nd release of fantastic, beautiful new free choices that you can receive with your qualifying orders. I think you will love them.  I do. 🙂  If you haven’t seen them yet then I will show them to you in the next couple of posts.

Today I want to show you the gorgeous Springtime Foils Specialty Designer Series Paper. To be honest it really doesn’t do it justice in the catalogue but you can see them in this image.

Last week I shared a video on my Facebook page showing the sparkle and shine of this paper.  It truly is just gorgeous!  If you didn’t see it head to my page -> HERE and scroll down a little to see it.  You really must.

Today I was playing around with it.  I have seen some images of it this past week inking it so thought I would give it a whirl.  I have to say it just lifts the gorgeousness to a whole new level.  This is the finished card I made.

I posted a video on Youtube of how to colour this gorgeous paper.  It was a very quick video but might give you some idea.

Here it is for you.

If you like a visual of this then it is simply a matter of rolling over it with your sponge roller and inkpad.  It does take some time but it is worth it.  I did dab some ink on with my inkpad too.  You can do that if you get a bit impatient. Then roll over it with the roller to smooth it.

On my card to finish I cut the “celebrate” from the Celebrate You Thinlits and added the “YOU” stamped on Powder Pink.  I found that a better match with the inked paper in the end.   I finished it off with some Black Baker’s Twine and cut a vellum leaf from the Flourish Thinlits.

Hope you like it? I really think you need this paper.  It is a free choice now added for Sale-A-Bration when you have a minimum $90 order.  It doesn’t take much to get to $90 by the time you grab a stamp set and stock up on your paper and adhesives.  What about the sponge rollers?  Do you have them?

I look forward to playing more with this paper so stay tuned.

Have a great weekend,

Jenny

THERE IS “LOTS TO LOVE” ON VALENTINE’S DAY!

I showed you in yesterday’s post the cute Flip Top Treat Box using the Lots To Love Box Framelits.  Here it is if you missed it but you can jump back to the last post though too and see more of it and the instructions.

        

This is actually a cute little Framelit set but there were parts that I wasn’t sure what they were used for.  Like those little tiny arch shaped dies down at the bottom of the image below???

I found this video from Stampin’ Up! explaining the pieces and showing some great projects.  I thought for my Wednesday WOW! #14 this week we will take a look at this set.  Very timely today being Valentine’s Day right. ❤  It does work well with the matching Sure Do Love You stamp set too.

That explains everything!

You can grab the Framelits in my store now -> HERE $57 AUS or grab the bundle and use them together.  Clear mount stamp set is $84.50 AUS  See that -> HERE.

Aren’t these projects pretty? These are from the current Occasions Catalogue and shows how gorgeous the products are especially with the beautiful Painted with Love Specialty Designer Series paper. SO much prettiness!

Thanks for visiting me today.  Always nice of you to drop by whether you are from near or far.  I hope your day has been a great one.

Until next time.

BRUSHO LONG WEEKEND DAY 3 – A SPECKLED BUTTERFLY!

I think this is my favourite card.  I really like how it turned out.  Can I say that??  Sometimes I am hesitant to say that about something I have made.  But I like the effect of it and I have to say it is just chance really.  When you use these Brusho Crystals you don’t know how it will work.

The butterfly is from A Beautiful Day set.  For the sentiment I masked the first word in the sentiment from the set to just stamp the “thinking of you” and heat embossed it in white.

To find out how to create this effect I have a video for you.

So what are your thoughts on the Brusho Crystals?  Have you tried them?  Do you think now you might give them a go?  Let me know what you think.  I would love to hear.

Just a reminder that my 15% off the Brusho Crystals ends at 8pm tonight. If you want to grab them and save money on then just drop me a comment or email me and I will get that sorted for you.  Included is an information sheet to help you use your set of Brushos.  I hope you will give them a try.  I don’t think it is the last you will see of these from me.

Thanks for joining me in this.  I hope you have had a great weekend.

BRUSHO CRYSTALS LONG WEEKEND – DAY 2!

What did you think of yesterday’s project??  I have a another project for you today.  

We saw yesterday creating a background with the background.  They are really fun to use them that way.  This is another type of background.  I don’t have a video for this one but I will walk you through it.

CREATING A BACKGROUND WITH THE BRUSHO CRYSTAL COLOURS

On this card I have used Shimmery White card and I have added the Brusho to dry card.

On your card sprinkle over your Brusho Crystals.  I added the Brilliant Red in the right hand corner, a small amount of the Gamboge in the centre section and the Yellow on the left.  Use the Spritzer and lightly spritz the card with water. It’s always magical watching the crystals dissolve and the colour emerge.  It’s one of those moments like heat embossing.  Do you feel that?? 🙂

Take your time and just play and watch what happens.  You may want to spritz more or you may want to add more crystals.  The “speckly” effect is created by sprinkling with the Crystals and only spritzing lightly so they are more spots than actually blended if that makes sense??

Leave your card to dry.

Once dry you can assemble the card.  For this one I stamped the flowers from Birthday Blossoms in the corner and the sentiment at the top.  I was going to stamp the sentiment and raise it up and I think I should have done that but never mind it’s more to see the Brusho effect.  I love the thin White Organza ribbon.  So soft and pretty to tie.  The base card is Flirty Flamingo.  It worked out a good match for it even with using the Red on the card.  The bird from Birds and Blooms Thinlits were cut in Silver Foil.

 

Thanks for stopping by for this one.  Come on by tomorrow.  I think I have left my favourite until last.

WEDNESDAY’S WOW! #13 – HEARTFELT BLOOMS!

Watch It Wednesday’s and Wednesday’s WOW! are back for 2018.  I have decided to combine them both in to Wednesday’s WOW! Each Wednesday I will bring you a stamping WOW! It might be a video, a tip, a product that has caught my attention or a special project.  I hope you enjoy these episodes.  You never know what I might uncover.

Today we have Wednesday WOW! #13. 

Do you find sometimes you go through a catalogue and see a stamp or maybe a die set and think Mmm? Maybe? But it doesn’t really do it for you.  I found that with the Sale-A-Bration set Heartfelt Blooms.  Another flower set and the flowers weren’t all that exciting.  What do you do with a stamp like that??? 

Well! I have been watching this little sleeper over the last few weeks and I have to say I am quite surprised with what this stamp can do.  Firstly, this stamp is a different type of stamp.  It is a “distinktive” stamp.  Meaning that the stamp lays down the ink at different opacities.  So you get different depths of colour.  It gives a Photographic finish.  Clever!

Stampin’ Up! have recently released a Youtube video highlighting this stamp.  I was impressed.  I thought I would share it with you if you hadn’t noticed it.

What do you think of this stamp?  I would love to see some of your cards using this set.  Why not email them to me and I might just share them here. (I might event send out a random prize of some handmade cards).  I have just got this set so I look forward to playing with it.

There are so many different ways that people have used this set.  Some people have coloured it with pencils, or with ink and daubers.  They have cut and layered the flowers.  If you want some inspiration, I have put together a Pinterest Board with this set.  Head on over -> HERE to see them.

Now this stamp is a Free one.  Really! Grab this as one of your Free Sale-A-Bration choices when your order reaches $90 AUS.  Available in Wood and Clear Mount. See it in store now -> HERE.

Have a great day,

Jenny

SILVER GABLE BOXES!

Have you seen the Silver Gable Boxes in the Occasions Catalogue?  These make really quick gift boxes in no time.

I shared in the last post the boxes I made up for the Lucky Door Prize for my launch. Head back to see those.  I made a few more up to show ideas with them.  Let me show you.

Firstly, a simple one with the Hedgehugs set.  Cute!  The paper strip is from the Eastern Palace Specialty Designer Series Paper pack.  I stamped the hedgehog in Dapper Denim and coloured the centre of the flower with the Lemon Lime Twist marker.  I added a bow with Lemon Lime Twist Mini Striped ribbon with a glue dot.

Here is another Gable Box.  This time decorated with the Sweet Soiree Specialty Designer Series Paper.

 

The sentiment is from the Birthday Blossoms set.  I love the Metallic Edge Berry Burst Ribbon.

Here is another version of the boxes.

This time I cut off the top of the Gable Box. So the handle section along the scored line.  Then created a wrap using the Sweet Soiree Specialty DSP.  I added a strip of the Berry Burst cardstock and then tied some Lemon Lime Finely Woven Ribbon.

You can grab the boxes in store now -> HERE and decorate them how you like.  They are $14 for a 12 pack.

Grab some and give a little treat to someone to brighten their day.

CHARMING CAFE MAKE AND TAKE!

Last weekend I had my Catalogue Kick Off for the year.  It was so great to get back stamping with my lovely class ladies.  We do have fun.  This is our “therapy”.  I am sure you can relate to that.

We looked at a lot of the new products in the Occasions Catalogue and the excitement of Sale-A-Bration.  Of course we did do some stamping surprisingly. 😉

I thought I would share you some of the fun.  If you are on my Facebook page you might have seen the video I shared.  I am not able to share it here but you can check it out -> HERE if you like.  Just scroll down a bit and you will come across the video.  By the way, Have you LIKED my page yet.  You can keep updated there on some of the excitement.

One of the Make and Takes we did was using the Charming Cafe Bundle.  I shared some tips with using this bundle on a post or 2 back.   You can head back there to check it out.

I kept the card fairly simple for the class.  The images were stamped in Memento Black and coloured with the Watercolor Pencils.  They weren’t watercoloured so it was OK just to use the Memento.   The paper is from the free Bubbles and Fizz Designer Series Paper from Sale-A-Bration.  Just a tip:  Adhere your piece of DSP to the card base BEFORE you cut the window with the Framelit.  Much easier. 😉

The sentiment is from the Thoughtful Banners set.  I love the gorgeous Whisper White Organza ribbon. So soft and beautiful.  It ties so easily too.  You need to get yourself some of that.

The other project we made was using the new Whisper White Narrow Note Cards and Envelopes. You can find these on page 19 in the Occasions catalogue.

I have used the Bubbles and Fizz DSP on these and of course added a cute hedgehog from the Hedgehugs set.

These little cards don’t take long to decorate and they are great for that little note to someone or a good size for a Gift Card. Don’t forget to stamp the matching envelope when you make these.

I made up little gift packs too to thank everyone for coming.  They were a mix of the Bubbles and Fizz paper and the Petal Passion paper.  I added some diecuts from the Celebrate You Thinlits.  The sentiment on the front is from Epic Celebrations.

Of course there is the Lucky Door Prize.  I made up little gift boxes using the Silver Gable Boxes and decorated them with the Bubbles and Fizz paper.  I had some of the new Glitter and Clear Epoxy Shapes, an ink spot and some ribbon.

I will share some samples over the next few posts too so stop by again.
