SUNDAY SUITES – BEST DRESSED SUITE!

Sunday Suites are back for 2020.  This week since I have been sharing projects with the Best Dressed Suite let’s have a closer look at the whole suite.

I think the Best Dressed Suite is a really fun one and can be quite classy too.

This is what is included in the entire Best Dressed Suite Bundle.

The Best Dressed Suite Bundle includes:

* Dressed to Impress Photopolymer Stamp Set (10% off)
* All Dressed Up Dies (10% off)
* Best Dressed 6″ x 6″ (15.2 x 15.2 cm) Designer Series Paper
* Mint Macaron 1/8″ (3.2 cm) Sheer Linen Ribbon
* Best Dressed 3″ x 3″ (7.6 x 7.6 cm) Note Cards & Envelopes
* Best Dressed Tassels

Colours used in the suite are: Blackberry Bliss, Daffodil Delight, Lovely Lipstick, Old Olive, Petal Pink, Pretty Peacock, Purple Posy, Mint Macaron.

Let’s have a closer look at the Best Dressed Designer Series Paper.  It is gorgeous.  One side has stylish images, the other side has floral prints either large or small.

One thing I learned when preparing my projects for Onstage was that the larger floral prints have been designed with white spaces around the flowers so you can easily fussy cut them to add directly to your projects.  I will share more about that on another post.

The Best Dressed Notecards and envelopes make really quick note cards to give to others.  They have a partly printed “swoosh” on the front of the card and the envelopes are printed on as well.  There are 24 in total with the cards and envelopes and they come in Daffodil Delight, Purple Posy and Petal Pink.  They are really sweet.  They are little cards measuring 3″x3″ or 7.6cm x 7.6cm.

What about some samples with these mini notecards.  These are straight from the catalogue. The notecards fit nicely inside the bag too so that gives you an idea of the size of the bag.

The All Dressed Dies are really fun.  They make the sweetest little bags.  You can change them up anyway you like.  See the samples below.  I have created a few fun bags already that I will share with you soon.

Don’t forget the Best Dressed Tassels as well.  There are 18 in total. 6 each in Petal Pink, Pretty Peacock and Whisper White.  With the White ones too you can colour them with the Stampin’ Blends or sit them in a little dish with reinker and water.

In the dies set is the long stitched die.  It’s great for the handles on your bags or I have used it as an edging but what about this fun idea.  Add the strips to the front of a card to create added texture.  This card sample is from Stampin’ Up!

So what do you think of the Best Dressed Suite?? Fun hey??

WEDNESDAY’S WOW! #89 – TAGS, TAGS, TAGS!

Wednesday’s WOW! #89.  I have a cool new bundle to share with you today that I just discovered about.  It’s the Tags, Tags, Tags Bundle in the Holiday Catalogue.  Really I am a little slow sometimes.  Perhaps you haven’t noticed it yourself so I thought I would tell you about it.

The Tags, Tags, Tags Bundle is on p56.  There are 9 images in the stamp set on 3 stamps.  They are connected together. The 3 tags are cut at one time with the Trio die.  How cool is that! A bit of a time-saver.

Each tag die is a different shape.  And you could use these tags dies for any of your other sentiments that fit in the shape.  I love the shapes of them and one is stitched!

I really overlooked these dies. Did you?

Here is a closer look at how they cut.  These are using the Valentine’s stamps in the set but you get the idea.

While we don’t celebrate Halloween here or even Valentine’s Day all that much, the Christmas stamps are really sweet, but really those dies!!

What about some ideas from the catalogue of how to use these little tags.

Some more samples.  You could use these on cards not just tags.

If you want to check the Youtube video out to show these more clearly then head -> HERE.

If you want to see them in my store and/or order then head -> HERE.

If ordering please use the Host Code:3F2MRZYP

Also, Don’t forget there are only a few days left to go in the draw to win a new Stampin’ Up! Paper Trimmer.

Thanks for visiting me.  I love your visits,

Happy Stamping,

Jenny

WEDNESDAY’S WOW! #85 – REVERSIBLE CUP OF CHRISTMAS!

Wednesday’s WOW! #85 – Did you know there are reversible stamps?  That’s what we will check out in this post.  The Cup Of Christmas stamp set – which is reversible.

This is the Cup of Christmas stamp set. You can find it on p34 of the Holiday Catalogue. I love the font on the sentiments. The really clever part of this stamp set though is that the cups are reversible. You can stamp either side of the stamp.

I wasn’t sure how it would really work.  If you are like me check this video out to see it close up.

 

Here is a graphic taken from the Catalogue.  Pin it so you can have reference to it later.

How about some fun samples using this stamp set.  Have the cup facing either way.  How cool!

I wonder what other reversible stamps Stampin’ Up! might come up with??  We will have to see.

You can grab your Cup of Christmas set and experiment with the cups yourself.

Grab it in my store now -> HERE.

WEDNESDAY’S WOW! #84 – NEW PAPER TRIMMER REVIEW!

Back with another Wednesday’s WOW!  I have just received the new Stampin’ Up! Paper Trimmer and wanted to share it all with you.  So today’s WOW! is a review video of the new Paper Trimmer. You can check it out below.

Just a few of the highlights of the Paper Trimmer that I see –

  • Clearly marked measurements in both Metric and Imperial on the Trimmer base not only along the top but in the middle as well as along the bottom. This will enable you to line your  card up better to see that it is straight.
  • Measurements clearly seen in the “gap” where the arm moves out from the side. Previously they were not shown so it was a little guesswork of the measurements.  For me this is a BIG PLUS!
  • A wider cutting base to cut cardstock.
  • Blades are larger which I think will enable better cutting – and hopefully longer lasting blade wear.
  • The ability to cut tiny strips of card without any problem.

The Paper Trimmer is now available for Demonstrators.  You can include that in your Starter Kit when you join Stampin’ Up! this month.  It will be available Very Soon for customers.

I will be posting here further updates but if you would like to be notified personally then drop me a comment or email and I will advise you when it is released.

In Australia it will be available for purchase for $44 AUD.  Replacement Blades will be available to order also for $21 AUD for a pack of 4.

I will tell you more when this trimmer will be available as I know.

Thanks for visiting,

Jenny

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
