SUNDAY SUITES – CHRISTMASTIME IS HERE SUITE!

I mentioned the Christmastime is Here Suite last post but since it’s Sunday Suites I thought we would look a little closer at it.

Firstly, let’s look at what you get in this suite.

You can purchase the complete Suite with one item code ($195.25) or select the products individually that you like.

The Christmastime is Here Suite includes:

* Christmas Rose Stamp Set (10% off)
* Roses Dies (10% off)
* Christmastime Is Here Specialty Designer Series Paper
* Gold 1/4″ (6.4 mm) Shimmer Ribbon
* Gold Glitter Enamel Dots
* Charming Rose Bracelet

To see them better check out this video about them.  You have to have a close look at the papers.

Below is the Christmas Rose Bundle with the gorgeous Christmas Rose stamp set and the Rose Dies. $106  The Rose stamp would work make a lovely birthday card or even a gorgeous Wedding card.

The Christmastime is Here Specialty Designer Series Paper has gold accents on the beautiful floral images on one side, with more “Christmas-sy’ prints on the reverse.  This makes them great to use any time of the year. They come in 12″ x 12” size and you receive 2 each of 6 double-sided designs.  $25

Here is a closer look at some of the projects from the video.

This first card uses the stamps to fill-in the rose and leaves outlines.

This one below the rose and leaves are heat embossed in white embossing powder and then watercoloured with the inkpads and Aquapainter.

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.

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 – CREATING THE PAPER MAGNOLIA FLOWER!

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?

If you need any supplies to make this project then you can head to my store online -> HERE.

Please use the Host Code: EUEAGC3N

OR

You can contact me directly.

Orders over $78 AUS receive an exclusive 12 project Tutorial Bundle free.  Or you can purchase the Tutorial Bundle for $20

   

SOMETHING TO CONSIDER:

The Good Morning Magnolia Bundle is $111.50 AUS.  The Hot Air Balloon Punch is $31 AUS.  TOTAL $142.50  If there are a couple more items you like you would be better off joining Stampin’ Up! and pay $169, but you get $235 of products in total of your choice which could include these items.  That makes it so much more affordable AND can check items off your LONG wish list.  Ask me more about it.

Thanks for visiting today,

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
