FAREWELL AVANT GARDEN!

I have my last Sale-A-Bration class on tonight.  I needed 3 cards.  Two of them I already had from past classes but I needed one more card.  I have been a little time poor this week with a few things going on so I headed to Pinterest – and that’s OK. 🙂

I wanted to showcase Avant Garden one more time and found THIS card by Lyssa on songofmyheartstampers.com  It is such a pretty card.  I think I am loving Sweet Sugarplum lately.

So I CASED this for the class tonight.

So farewell Sale-A-Bration 2017.  You have been fun!

Have a great weekend,

Jenny

ANY OCCASION SITTING HERE!

Last day for Sale-A-Bration tomorrow.  Unbelievable!  I can’t believe that we are 1/4 of the way through the year either.  Crazy!

I have had in mind for a few weeks to do this card but I wasn’t sure how it was going to work.  I managed to grab a little time yesterday to put it together.

I wanted to hang the banners from the Sale-A-bration set Any Occasion across the “ropes” of the bench on the Sitting Here set.  I was pleased that they actually fit.

Colours are Watermelon Wonder, Mint Macaron and Tip Top Taupe.  Three colours that will be leaving us at the end of May.  😦  You better stock up on these colours now.

I coloured the bench seat with the Inkpad and the Blender Pen. The cushion was stamped separately and coloured, then raised up off the card with Dimensionals.  The card layout is based on a Freshly Made Sketches #179 sketch.  I added some Silver Glimmer Paper down the side but thought it still needed something.  I then added a Baker’s Twine bow and a Rhinestone on the cushion.

Hope you like it?

Last orders will go in tomorrow night for Sale-A-Bration so don’t delay.

Keep dry if you are on the East coast of Australia.  It is a little wet around these parts.

THE VERSATILE AVANT GARDEN!

The Sale-A-Bration set ‘Avant Garden’ was one of my early choices.  I loved how versatile it was and I have seen so many different ways with it over the last few months.

Here are just a few more that was shared by Stampin’ Up! this morning.  I thought I would share them with you.

Create a wreath, or clear emboss them and give the card a wash with watercolour, or what about some Palm Trees?  I have been wanting to give that a go for a few weeks but time has been a bit short.

Only 3 days left for Sale-A-Bration.  Don’t miss out on getting your free choices.  If Avant Garden is not your choice there are so many other options and even some catalogue products.

Check them all out HERE.

Order Online HERE for those last minute orders.

HEY CHICK IS A WINNER!

The Hey Chick has been a popular choice for Sale-A-Bration.  Everyone loves these chicks with personality!

I haven’t got a chance to play with this fun set but I thought I would show you the great cards from Stampin’ Up!.

What do you think of these chicks??

They are a great set to colour with the Watercolor Pencils or your inkpads.

You still have a chance to get this set with your $90 order but don’t leave it too long.  Friday is the end. That’s it and these chicks then head home. 😉

MINI SCALLOP SQUARE CARDS WITH ANY OCCASION!

I have been making these mini Thank You cards recently for all my lovely customers who have placed orders with me during Sale-A-Bration.   I used one of the Sale-A-Bration sets ‘Any Occasion’ which I think is overlooked in the Sale-A-Bration catalogue.

The cards are about 7.5cm square (about 3″). They are quite simple cards cut with the largest Layering Squares Framelits.  I will show you how to do that below.

The left one is Watermelon Wonder with a little Blushing Bride for some banners. The right one is Bermuda Bay with a little Mint Macaron.  I added a bow with White Baker’s Twine.  I really should have added some bling I think???

To create your own Mini Scallop Square Cards:

Place the largest Scallop Square of the Layering Square Framelits on your folded card base so as the top edge of the framelit is just off the edge of the fold of the card. This will mean that the top won’t be cut through. See the photo above.

Run the card and Framelit through your Big Shot as you would normally.  Below shows how the card looks after cutting it.

Decorate the card as you like.  I also added a piece of card inside to write on.  They make quick little cards to give with a gift.

CATALOGUE REVIEW UPDATE!

Finally I can share some of the fun from my Catalogue Review last weekend for the Occasions and Sale-A-Bration Catalogues. I had a session on Friday night and Saturday afternoon. Lots of laughs and creativity was involved I can assure you. 🙂

Firstly, I always like to make little gift bags up for my lovely guests and spoil them with some “bits” from the new catalogue.  (Also a chocolate treat is a must in the bags!). These are the little bags this time.

2017-02-04-11-07-58_wm

These are using the Kraft Tag A Bag Gift Bags in the Annual Catalogue. You know I did mean to emboss these bags BUT …. Well that slipped my mind until afterwards.  I used a strip of the gorgeous Falling In Love DSP and flagged the end of the piece. From a square of the Sweet Sugarplum cardstock I cut the larger flower from the Stylish Stems Framelits and then layered it on some Whisper White cardstock.  I thought the centre was a bit plain so I coloured it with the Early Espresso Watercolor Pencil and lightly brushed it over with the Aquapainter. This lightened the colour a little so it matched with the Kraft bags. I went over it with the Clear Wink of Stella pen for sparkle, although you can’t see that in the photo sadly.

The sentiment is from the Dragonfly Dreams set which I had coloured the “thanks” with the black marker before stamping it. Then punched it out with the Duo Banner Punch.

These are the cards we made.  The first one using Dragonfly Dreams Bundle and the Falling Petals Embossing Folder.  I had Cased this off Pinterest changing the Embossing Folder and adding the touch of the Paper Doily behind it.

The second card was Cased off Pinterest too using the Sale-A-Bration sets Avant Garden and Delicate Details.  I LOVE both these sets!  Sadly I lost my little stamens from the Avant Garden set so we had to add a little dot in the centre of the flowers.  Some were very clever and drew stamens in with the Smoky Slate marker.

2017-02-09-08-02-38

I always forget to take a photo of the groups as it gets pretty busy. I snapped one just as we were finishing up at the Saturday session. Some people had already started to leave. (sorry!) 🙂 There was lots of creative mess happening.

20170204_161636

You might have seen the card tin in the Sale-A-Bration catalogue? I have dressed this one up. Everyone who has a party in the next month or 2 with me goes in the draw to win one.

Maybe I could just give some extras away too. Mmm? If you want a party or your own private stamping event, let me know.  I only have a few dates available so you better be quick.

2017-02-09-08-04-05_wm

There you have it. We had a product playground too for everyone to test out the pencils and a few other new products. That’s always good to test those things out.

Thanks for visiting me.  Visit again soon,

DELICATE DETAILS AND A DRAGONFLY!

The last few days I have been busy getting ready for my Occasions and Sale-A-Bration Review this weekend.  Lots of creating happening – even in the heat! I will get to share some of them shortly but I really wanted to share this one first.  I was happy with the result.

I have used the Delicate Details stamp set.  A free choice for Sale-A-Bration this year when you order over $90! This was my first pick for Sale-A-Bration but I have only just managed to ink it up.

Mint Macaron_dragonfly

I used one of the stamps to create a lacy effect by stamping in Memento ink onto Whisper White card. I lined each one up by eye.  I have to say that was a little nerve racking!  You could use a Stamp-A-Ma-Jig (SAMJ) or similar tool.  I always forget to pull my Stamp-A-Ma-Jig out. (or lazy!).

Once I stamped them –  and breathed a sigh of relief – I then inked up the card.  I haven’t got the sponge rollers yet so I used the brayer which is now retired. Funny that, my brayer is in the same box as my SAMJ. 🙂  I used Mint Macaron ink to add the colour gradually going from dark to light.

TO ASSEMBLE THE CARD:

A dragonfly was cut from the Copper Foil Sheet. It looks a bit more gold in the photo. The sentiment was stamped and heat embossed with Copper Embossing Powder on to a strip of Whisper White.  I cut a banner end with scissors.  It needed a little something underneath so I cut a thinner strip from the Copper Foil and cut the end of that too.

The inked piece was added to a Mint Macaron card base.  Before I added the Dragonfly I twirled around some Copper Thread and added some Pearls to finish.  The sentiment was raised up with Dimensionals.

You can check out the Dragonfly Dreams Bundle HERE at my store.  It is $81.25 AUS. Maybe grab an inkpad or some cardstock to take you over $90 and you can grab the gorgeous Delicate Details set from Sale-A-Bration FREE (or grab one of the other great Free products).  Check out the Sale-A-Bration catalogue by clicking on the link in the right hand side bar.

Have a lovely day/night.  It is a little cooler here today and rainy which is nice so I am off to my stamp room again. 🙂

DAPPER AVANT GARDEN!

This card is one I created for a Private Card class last week using the Sale-A-Bration set Avant Garden. This card was adapted from a couple of cards I have seen around.  You might have noticed a similar design on page 4 of the Sale-A-Bration catalogue??

dapper-denim-avante-garden

Colours used are Dapper Denim, Marina Mist and Mint Macaron.  The Smoky Slate base is at a bit more of an angle than it appears in the photo.  I added some Silver Ribbon to the card.

I have to tell you a funny story.  When I went to the class I forgot to take the Marina Mist inkpad. Minor panic! Never mind I got them stamping off the Dapper Denim to create a lighter effect.  It turned out OK. 🙂

avant-garden

The Avant Garden is such a versatile stamp set – and it is Free! Even better!  With your $90 order you can choose this set or any of the other choices for Sale-A-Bration.

You can head to my store HERE to order. Please use the Host Code for this week. SS7JW4QQ  You can then pick up your Free set of Avant Garden or choose one of the other great choices.  Check the items in store under Sale-A-Bration or look at the catalogue in the right side bar here.
