DAISY LANE SMILE!

Another Daisy Lane card for you today.  Just a bit of stamping and punching a few daisies out but it is a very simple card.  The stripey paper from the Bird Ballad Designer Series Paper works well with it I think.  I went through my stack of current paper to see what would be best.

Here is the card.

Stampin' Up! Daisy Lane Smile card

The dots in Pool Party over the card are from the Birthday Backgrounds stamp set. Stamp the daisies (the large and the small one) in Calypso Coral on white card and punch them out with the Daisy Punches. You will need 4 small ones and 2 larger ones.  You use 2 daisies for each daisy flower.  I added some Gold Gems in the centres of the daisies.

You can get a pack of these Gold Gems or the silver ones as the free gift for this week.  Here are the details how to order your Daisy Lane Bundle, (or any other products).

SIMPLE BEAUTY ABOUNDS PAIR!

Stampin’ Up! is all about simple stamping at the moment.  I find that a bit hard but I needed to make some quick cards the other day so I went with some simple stamping.

This Beauty Abounds set is a lovely one.  I love the Bokeh style dots.  You can create some fun, whimsical cards with this.

Colours are Flirty Flamingo, Granny Apple Green and Memento Black.  I stamped a butterfly on scrap white and coloured it with the Flirty Flamingo Stampin’ Blends then fussy cut it out.

You could do a lot with this set.  I have seen some lovely samples online so I need a little more play with it I think. 🙂

It is available as a Bundle with the gorgeous Butterfly Beauty Thinlits for $97.  You can buy the stamps alone for $40.

Available in my store now -> HERE.

HELLO CUPCAKE CASE!

I have been having a little fun with cupcakes lately.  Hello Cupcake from the Sale-A-Bration Catalogue actually.  So I thought I would start to share some projects for you.

If you are not sure where to start with a stamp set, why not CASE (Copy And Share Everything).  The Stampin’ Up! Catalogues are great for inspiration.

This card is a CASE from p6 of the Sale-A-Bration catalogue.

Base card is Mint Macaron stamped with some sprinkles in Mint Macaron. The Blushing Bride strip is 9cm x 3cm (approximately 3 1/2″x 1 1/4″). On the white card (which is 7.5cm x 12.8cm – Approximately 3″ x 5″), I stamped the cupcake base in Early Espresso.

I positioned the Blushing Bride card strip temporarily above the cupcake base before stamping the Cupcake top.  Then I could stamp the cupcake top in the right place.  I just slid the strip away slightly to stamp. The Cupcake top is stamped in Blushing Bride and the Sprinkles in Berry Burst.  Some Linen Thread was wrapped twice around the strip.  I find it helpful to add a little Snail Adhesive on the back of the strip to hold the Thread in place to wrap it around.

Some more Cupcakes are on their way.

You can pick up your free Hello Cupcake set with your orders over $90 AUS during Sale-A-Bration.  If you are in Australia, Stop by my store to order -> HERE.  Please use the HOST CODE: FYQHM4CK

WEDNESDAY’S WOW! #49 – INTO THE WOODS WITH THE WINTER WOODS BUNDLE!

Today for episode #49 on Wednesday’s WOW! I have a really cool bundle to show you. The Winter Woods Bundle.  Have you noticed it? You can find it on page 27 of the Holiday Catalogue.

Why am I showing you this today?  Well a few of reasons.

  • It’s a very versatile set that you could use for other occasions,  Think of those difficult Masculine cards.  You can also use it for a number of different techniques too.  So while it might be late for the Christmas cards it is great that you can use it for other times throughout the year.
  • You can layer up the tree dies to make some cool effect trees.  Add a few of those trees on the card and you wouldn’t need much more on it.
  • You can use it with other current stamp sets from the Annual Catalogue.  Just another great “co-ordination” on Stampin’ Up!’s part.
  • OK, I will be honest I haven’t got it yet but I really think I must add it because if I get it now then I can save 10% by getting the bundle.  Although the stamps and dies will carryover they won’t be at bundle price.

Check the Winter Woods Bundle in the short video below.  

 

As you saw in the video, the Winter Woods stamp set is a great stamp set with the different trees and the tree trunks.  That sentiment is so lovely.  Don’t think of that sentiment just for Christmas.  Mask off some of the words and make it a lovely “Thinking of You” card.  There are a few different tree dies too in the In The Woods Framelits and they layer together so well don’t you think.

This is available in Wood Mount and Clear Mount.  Clear is $87.25 AUS.  Wood mount is available there too. You can grab it in my store now -> HERE and save 10%.  Don’t forget to use the Host Code: BZ6KB7SU

Do you want some inspiration?  Head to my Winter Woods Pinterest board -> HERE. 

Thanks for visiting me today.

See you again soon,

NATURE’S POEM CARDS FOR YOU!

I have my classes on this weekend using the Nature’s Poem Suite.  This has become a popular bundle for many people.  I wasn’t sure about it at first but I have recently got them so I thought I would share a few cards with you that I have made.

I have shared a few cards with this bundle before.  If you want to check on those be sure to click on the tag for “nature’s poem”.  Here is one post -> HERE to get you started on though.

Here are a couple more cards.

For this first one I stamped some of the leaves over white card to create a background.    I added a short length of the Burlap ribbon behind the oval sentiment and then added one of the diecut leaves stamped in Early Espresso.  I am really not sure of this though.  I think it is too heavy.  What do you think?

For this one below I was trying a few different things.  I liked the words separated.  I really like this sentiment. I know a few people who I could use this saying for.  If you notice the white background there are some embossed leaves on it.  In the Nature’s Roots Framelits set there are some leaves that don’t cut but emboss your card.  That’s pretty cool.

The rest of the card is fairly simple with a strip of the Nature’s Poem Designer Series Paper, Grapefruit Grove twine and the tree stamped in Early Espresso and die cut out.

I hope you like them.

Thanks again for visiting me.  I love that you stop on by. Please visit again. 🙂

Have a great day,

Jenny

CATALOGUE SHOWCASE EVENTS!

I had my 2018 Catalogue Showcase over the weekend.  I still have one more to go tomorrow. I thought I would show you just some photos from it.

With all the new changes I wanted to feature many of the new colours.

Below is a display with some new products. I will show more of these cards in later posts.

Some Delightfully Detailed Laser-cut paper samples. I have been sharing some of these samples recently. (some things get a little messy over the time with lots of touching and feeling.  It’s nice everyone enjoys them).

Some serious concentration from one of the groups while they create and study the catalogue. (They were having fun).

Tomorrow I will show you the projects we made.

SWEET SUGARPLUM DAISY!

Another Daisy Delight card for you today.  This one was CASED again (from Anne’s blog HERE).  Time was running out to get my samples made for the Craft Show.

This was my version. I made a few changes to the original.

I like how some of the other flowers from the set are used.  For my card I matted the white on black and the base is Sweet Sugarplum.  I stamped and punched out 2 Daisy flowers in Sweet Sugarplum.  I like the fuller flower.

Along the bottom I stamped the little stems and flower heads.  I was a bit worried how they would line up but really that is they style and it doesn’t matter if they are a little off-set.  I have sponged Pear Pizzazz (I am pretty sure it was) along the bottom and up into the flowers.  I like the softness it brings.

Have you got this set yet?  I have to say I really didn’t need this at first.  I have lots of flower stamps. Then I just bought the punch because you know, I saw some great cards with it. But….Well it’s great having the punch but there are so many options to the flowers. So I had to buy the stamp set then. Don’t be a silly nong like me (an Aussie term for being a twit or an idiot).  Get the bundle straight up and save 10%.

Here is the Daisy Delight Bundle for you if you haven’t already checked it out.

If you are in Australia you can buy the bundle (don’t resort to just the punch!!) by contacting me directly or see it in my store HERE now for $54.75 in Photopolymer.  Please use the Host Code: YN7BVYYQ

ALSO, I always seem to neglect to tell people that you can collect one punch out on my VIS (Very Important Stamper) Loyalty card for every $50 order.  Once you collect 10 you get free products up to the value of $24.95.

Thanks for visiting today.  I hope your weekend is going awesome.

See you again tomorrow,

Jenny

CAROLS OF CHRISTMAS – DAY 3!

 

DAY 3

This card was inspired by a card I saw on Pinterest using a different Christmas set.  I like the idea of the “negative” cut trees.  Check this out!!! The Designer Series Paper is from the Delightful Daisy DSP.  It’s not even a Christmas paper!  It looks like falling snow though doesn’t it.  🙂  The other trees are cut from the Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Paper.

The sentiment on this card is from the Holly, Berry Happiness set.  Such a nice sentiment.  It is stamped in Smoky Slate.  Sometimes I like stamping in the grey.  It is just a little softer.

CAROLS OF CHRISTMAS

Order the Carols of Christmas this week and receive double Loyalty points – and receive a small gift to say Thanks too. 🙂

ORDER ONLINE HERE. (Australian residents only)  Please use the HOST CODE:  KDEM49NG

See you tomorrow,
