SUNDAY SUITES – PRESSED PETALS SUITE!

It’s Sunday Suites time.  Today we are looking at the Pressed Petals Suite.  I have seen a lot of projects with this suite recently so I thought it would be timely to look at it.

The Pressed Petals Suite includes a sweet stamp set, Path of Petals, for those special encouraging occasions. (See it closer below).  I love the Petal Labels Dies.  They create some very detailed, delicate labels for your sentiments. 

This is the Path of Petals stamp set.

With these Suites you can use just one Item code to get all of these items together. The Pressed Petals Suite is #152193 and is $167.76 AUD

In the Suite it includes the Pressed Petals Journal.  I have only just noticed the embossed cover. Isn’t that gorgeous??  You can decorate the Journal with some simple decorations.  Not too much or you cover the lovely embossing. On this one it is using the Pressed Petals Specialty Designer Series Paper.

You have to have a closer look at the Pressed Petals Specialty Designer Series Paper.  It looks like pressed flowers on the paper.  Do you remember pressing flowers when you were younger?  Picking the flowers then pressing them in piles of books between paper.  It is just like it.

A couple more samples for you using this suite of products.

I have to show you the Pressed Petals Specialty Washi Tape.  It contains 2 rolls.  One roll is a Crumb Cake tape.  The other petal one is not your regular Washi Tape here.  The roll of tape actually contains individual petals.  You can use the petals on their own as an embellishment or you can peel one off at a time and build up your flower. It is $13 AUD  It is very clever.  I haven’t seen anything like that before have you?

If you want to have a closer look at this suite check the video out below.  It shows you in much more detail the journal and the gorgeous Washi Tape.

So there is the Pressed Petals Suite.

If you want to grab one of these products or all of them you can grab them in my store now -> HERE.  (Australian residents). Please use the Host Code: HCCFFCSU

Thanks for visiting me today on this Sunday.

WEDNESDAY’S WOW! #78 – TAKE YOUR PICK DIE BRUSH ADDITION!

Some months ago for a Wednesday’s WOW! I told you about the new Take Your Pick tool.  You can see that post -> HERE if you missed it.  It was way back at Wednesday’s WOW! #39.

Today for Wednesday’s WOW! #78 I thought I will tell you about a new addition for this handy, dandy tool.  The Take Your Pick Die Brush Tip.

This Die Brush Tip attaches to the Take Your Pick tool and can roll over your intricate dies to remove those tiny pieces that get stuck in your diecut.  It comes with 2 foam mats to use to roll your brush over, making it easier. 

You can see it working in the video below if you haven’t already seen it.

It’s pretty handy right??

You can grab the Take Your Pick Die Brush Tip in my store now -> HERE.  It is $15.75 AUS

If you haven’t already got the Take Your Pick Tool then be sure to grab that too.  You can find it in my store -> HERE.

Please use the Host Code: HCCFFCSU 

Thank You kindly. 🙂

WEDNESDAY’S WOW! #72 + BIRD BALLAD WEEK DAY 3 – COLOURING THE PRETTY BIRDS!

Today is a double Whammy for you.  We have Wednesday’s WOW!  and also we are up to Day 3 of my Bird Ballad Week.  Today I have a video for you. I have been colouring the little birds and the flowers from the Free As A Bird stamp set so thought I would actually share a video with you.

This is the card I will show you how to colour in the video.

See the video below.  Bare in mind that this is a new area for me so it’s a work in progress AND I have a bit of a cold so the volume might be a bit quiet.  Just turn up your volume and watch away.  And you can fast forward in parts of the colouring. 🙂  I will work on that too.  I do appreciate your feedback though.  Good or bad – I can handle it.   Thank You. 🙂

I really like the Stampin’ Blends for colouring.  They make it so easy to get the contrast in colours.  I love that a lot of the images with Stampin’ Up! have shading on different parts of the image so you can follow these to get the contrast as well with the Light and Dark Stampin’ Blends.

I hope you found this helpful?  Would you  like more videos like this?  Constructive criticisms welcome.

I still have more to show you with this bundle so be sure to stop by again tomorrow as we continue our Bird Ballad Week,

Jenny

Wednesday’s WOW! #70 today.  I could tell you so many things today with all the exciting new products just released, but for today I have a special project.  You have probably admired the gorgeous Magnolia flowers in the 2019 Stampin’ Up! Catalogue. They are even all over the front cover. You might have even seen them online. Well today I am going to share with you how to create your own Paper Magnolia Flowers.

You just need a few supplies – The Good Morning Magnolia bundle and the Hot Air Balloon Punch.  Check out the easy to follow steps in this video.

Very simple and very gorgeous.  I like that you can make the smaller flowers too.  Ok.  Are you off to make some Magnolia Flowers now?

SOMETHING TO CONSIDER:

WEDNESDAY’S WOW! #69 – REATTACHING THE LOCK BUTTON ON YOUR STAMPIN’ UP! PUNCHES

Do you have this problem?  The lock mechanism on your punches pop out and you can’t get them back in.  I found this video on Youtube to help you get them back in and to stop it happening in the first place.

So for Wednesday’s WOW! #69 – how to reattach the lock on your punches. I tried it and it works.

Thanks Kat for this video.  It was very helpful.

Now you can go off and fix those little locks on your punches.

Have a great day,

Jenny

THE EVERYTHING IS ROSY MEDLEY WITH ROSE GOLD STREAKS!

I have just received the Everything is Rosy suite of products.  Let me tell you it is more gorgeous in real life.  I shared the video unveiling it on my Facebook page the other day but maybe you would like to see it here.

This was my first play with it.  I have to say it is so easy to put cards together with all these products.  Stamp a few images or you can use the diecut images in the set and cut some of that gorgeous paper.  Yes cut it – don’t just stroke it and then store it away. 😉

For this card below I stamped the leaves and a flower and diecut them out with the lovely dies. I added one of the Rose Gold embellishments for the centre of the flower. They are sticky back so you just peel it off the sheet and stick it on.  It has a clear coating on the top so you need to peel that off too. The Thank You was stamped in the diecut banners that is included in the set.

Just to remind  you what you get in this bundle of products.  There is a lot!  Another demonstrator added it up and there was over $180 in value.  There is nothing like this paper.  Have I said that already?? 🙂

Purchase in my store now -> HERE. (Australian residents only). Please use the Host Code: HQX47XHJ

Once you place your order I will email you a Tutorial Bundle of 12 exclusive projects (these are not using the Everything is Rosy Medley) but just as a Thank You for your order.

You will also receive a roll of Rose Gold Metallic Thread Free which will work beautifully with this medley of products.

Thanks for your order and Thanks for stopping by,

Have a great day,

Jenny

BUTTERFLY BLUE WITH BRUSHOS!

I have another card to share with you today using the Brusho Crystal Colours. I shared one yesterday. If you missed it just pop back a post.

This card was created a little differently to the one  I shared yesterday. Let me tell you about it.

Firstly on Shimmery White card you will heat emboss your butterfly.  If you are not familiar with heat embossing.  Rub over your card with the Stampin’ Buddy.  Ink up your image (I used the butterfly from Beautiful Day), with Versamark.  Stamp the butterfly on your card and tip over some White Embossing Powder.  Clear Embossing Powder would work as well.  Heat the image with the Heat Tool to melt the powder.  I LOVE heat embossing.  That is what drew me in to stamping all those years ago.  It never gets old.

With the Aquapainter, wash over the butterfly going outside the lines too.  Sprinkle over the Blue Brusho Crystal – and watch it dissolve and spread.  That’s almost as magic as Heat Embossing.  You may like to add some more Brusho to add more colour or wash over more water.  Just see what it looks like.  Let it dry.

** I made a similar card a little while ago and even did a video back then. (It’s not a great one – still learning in that aspect).  If you want to head back to see that card and maybe catch the video, then head back to this post -> HERE.

To finish the card, I layered it on a piece of the Gingham Gala Designer Series Paper.  Before adhering it down on to the Balmy Blue card mat I tied around some Black Baker’s Twine.  Then added the “friend” from the Well-Written Framelits.

Thanks for visiting,

Jenny

BOTANICAL BUTTERFLIES WEEK BONUS – W CARD!

I have a bonus project to share with you today for Botanical Butterflies week.  It’s a ‘W’ card.  I have seen a few of them around and was wanting to try one.  We made this one at our team meeting on Wednesday night and I thought it was good timing. So you get a bonus project.

Don’t look closely.  It was made in a rush at the meeting.  There are lots of parts to this card but it will give you an idea.  And can’t beat those pretty butterflies from the gorgeous Botanical Butterflies paper.

This is the card closed.  Tied up with some of the lovely soft Lemon Lime Twist Organdy ribbon.  The sentiment is from Incredible Like You and the paper on the front is from the Gingham Gala Paper. 

This is the inside of the card with more pretty butterflies.

I won’t give you the details of how to make one as you can check it out for yourself.  The card was CASED from Jan B cards.  HERE is the link to her Youtube video.  It’s long one.  It goes for 47 minutes so be prepared with a drink in hand and take notes.  The card is very easy though once all the cutting is done and you can decorate it anyway you like.

What could you do inside? Some stamped and cut images, a baby card, maybe a 4 letter name. Endless ideas to work with.

Have fun with it.

I hope you like the Botanical Butterflies week.  The ideas I have shared could work with any paper.  This gorgeous paper is Free though.  Can’t beat that. 

This is a Sale-A-Bration choice for orders over $90.  You could choose the gorgeous Painted Seasons paper or any of the other choices.  You only have one week left so get on it.

In Australia? You can order in my store -> HERE.  

Have a great weekend,

Jenny
