SAILING HOME ONSTAGE CARD!

This weekend is my Sailing Home Classes, So over the next few days I am going to be sharing some of the cards I have been making with this suite of products.  I think we should call it a Sailing Home Long Weekend shall we.  Who loves to spend their free time sailing on the wide blue waters?? 🙂

Onstage was a few months ago now.  I have been a little slow in showing you some projects, apart from the fact that it took some time to finish off some of the cards I was waiting to share a few projects close together with the Sailing Home Suite. The first card is  one we made at Onstage in April.

Sailing Home Onstage card

In the suite of products is the Sailing Home Stamp set and the Smooth Sailing Dies.

First step in making this card was giving a light wash over a piece of Watercolor card with the Balmy Blue ink and an Aquapainter.  It dried while we stamped and cut the other pieces to the card.  I like the little Sail Away Trinkets.  They are very cute and you can dress them up with some Night Of Navy Baker’s Twine.  The easiest way of adhering these on to your projects is to use Glue Dots.

Some pieces of the Come Sail Away Designer Series Paper were layered on to a note card before assembling all the other elements.

Be sure to stop by over the next few days for some more projects with this suite.  It’s been lots of fun playing with them.

Have a good day,

Jenny

BIRD BALLAD WEEK DAY 4 – CATALOGUE KICK OFF MAKE AND TAKE!

Bird Ballad Week Day 4.  Have you liked the projects so far?

A few weeks ago I had my Catalogue Kick-Off event for everyone to come and see the new catalogue and have fun creating.  This was one of the cards that everyone got to make using the Bird Ballad Suite.

I have CASED this card from Angie’s blog -> HERE. I loved the simpleness of it yet it is still elegant.  Everyone who came to my Kick-Off loved the card too.

Bird Ballad card

I used the Stitched Nested Labels Dies and the gorgeous Bird Ballad Designer Series Paper.  The birds were coloured with the Petal Pink Stampin’ Blends.  I had never used Petal Pink until a few weeks ago.  Now I am really starting to love it – possibly.  They certainly work nicely with this suite.

You can grab the Bird Ballad Bundle in my store now -> HERE.  Please use the Host Code: H2BBRFTE

I really love those Stitched Nested Labels Dies.  You won’t be sorry you bought those. You can buy them as the bundle or individually.

Thanks for visiting today.  Have a great day/night wherever you may be visiting me from.

WEDNESDAY’S WOW! #68 – FAREWELL LOVELY AS A TREE!

Today is a special Wednesday’s WOW!

Today we take a moment to remember the timeless Lovely As A Tree set.  It is so sad that this set is leaving us.  Each year we scour the catalogue to see if it has made it in.  This year though I think we were all saddened to see that it’s time had finally come. 

This set started in the Catalogue in the US back in 2001.  I believe it was designed by Shelli Gardner’s sister who started Stampin’ Up! with Shelli.  This set has been like a much loved family member so it is a sad occasion.  I bought this set in my first Demonstrator order after I joined back in 2008. This set has had so much use and I think every Christmas it gets pulled out.  It is such a classic stamp set.

So today for Wednesday’s WOW! #68 we look back at some of my projects with this stamp set.  I am sad that I couldn’t find photos of some cards I had made but let’s have a look back at these projects I have kept. I have to say it is also a look back at my stamping style too.  Perhaps that is a little embarrassing but … anyway. Enjoy the nostalgic journey.  Apologies in advance for lots of photos.

May 2011 – See the original Post -> HERE.

I don’t know what I was thinking with that button.

Even the inside of the card was stamped with the trees.

From a Stamp A Stack Christmas 2011 with another classic stamp Dasher.  What a great combination these stamps were.  See the original post -> HERE.

These cards were some I received for Christmas 2013.  It included a couple of cards using the Lovely As A Tree set.  I like how the tree is used on it’s side to give the effect of branches.  Very cute.

This Tunnel card was a favourite at a Christmas Card class in 2013.  You can see that post -> HERE and I included a Tutorial how to make the Tunnel card there too in that blog post.  Go and check it out.

This one below was a real WOW! at class back in 2011.  Everyone loved this card. This was a Sparkly Christmas card. You can see it in this post -> HERE and I have a tutorial how to make it in that post. You can use this technique with any stamp set.

Now this next card we actually made at a team meeting like nearly 2 years ago.  I didn’t quite finish it at the time.  So I put it aside on my desk to finish.  All it needed was to be stuck together and a sentiment added.  Well I actually finished it a month ago.  Or actually my daughter finished it for me.

On this card I masked a section of the card and sponged in the section.  Then with the group of trees I heat embossed in Silver Embossing Powder.

This card below was the most recent one from last Christmas.  I realised I hadn’t shared this card with you before. We used the Copper Shimmer Paint and swiped it over the card mat that had been embossed with the Tin Tile Embossing Folder.

Then for more shine we added the Shimmer Paint directly to the tree stamp and also on to the sentiment stamp.  To do this use the Dauber and pick some Shimmer Paint from inside the lid of the Shimmer Paint bottle then lightly dauber over the stamp.  Then stamp it on your card.  Against the Merry Merlot colour it is quite classy.

So sadly the Lovely As A Tree stamp set has sold out now.  I hope you managed to get hold of one.

A new replacement might just be the Rooted in Nature stamp set.  Have you added that one yet to your collection? This set has a number of stamps AND dies.  I think this will be a good alternative.  Hopefully I will get to play more with that one again soon.

Thanks everyone for your patience as we wander down memory lane.

Farewell Lovely As A Tree.  You have been a reliable stamp set for all those special projects and festive occasions. You will be missed.  But I won’t be able to part with you just yet.  Enjoy your retirement.

TEA TOGETHER HAPPY MOTHER’S DAY!

I shared this card on my Facebook page the other day along with some other co-ordinating projects.  These were the projects we made at our Mother’s Day class this weekend.  I thought that I would show you a closer photo of the card.  You can’t beat Gingham.  It’s quite popular at the moment.  This was a popular card too.

This card is using the Tea Together stamp set with the Tea Time Dies.

For this card we used the sweet sentiment from the stamp set but there was the option for the Mother’s Day sentiment too.

A frame was cut on the Gingham Gala paper with the Rectangle Stitched Dies. The Balmy Blue stamped card was also cut with one of the other smaller Rectangle Stitched Dies.  The teapot and cup and saucer were stamped in Memento Black ink and coloured with the Stampin’ Blends.  We just did the edge with the light Smoky Slate.  You can’t tell but the flowers had Wink of Stella washed over them so they were quite sparkly.

For the class each person could choose the colours they wanted to from the Gingham Gala paper.  The Highland Heather looked gorgeous as was the Grapefruit Grove.  I should have taken photos of them.

Hope you like them.  Happy Mother’s Day to you wherever you are whether you are a Mum to humans or to animal babies.  Have a lovely day.  Hugs to you if you are missing your Mum or struggle with not being a “mum”.  It can be a hard day.  xx

Thanks for visiting.  See you again soon.
