SPRINKLES OF LIFE WEEK!

I thought it would be fun to share some ‘Sprinkles of Life’ cards leading up to my Ronald McDonald House Fundraiser on the weekend.  I have been having a play with this set and the punch to make some samples. I have to say this is such a great set.  It is so versatile.  I hope to show lots of ways you can use this set.

Firstly,  this card I am sharing is a version of one shown at the South Pacific Convention back in late April.

Now I have to say when I made this card I didn’t look closely at the colours used in the original.  I was looking at it today and I think I missed the point.  Every cloud has a silver lining …… but I stamped my clouds in Tip Top Taupe ???????  Seriously, what was I thinking!!! I think I was so excited to use the new Incolors and new products then that I just went ahead and made it.  When I stamped the greeting I stamped it once in the Tip Top Taupe and then in Smoky Slate and cut the “silver” out and adhered it over the top. That’s my silver!!! I embossed the Mint Macaron mat with the Fluttering Embossing Folder.  I think now I see this card again I will go and add some Dazzling Diamonds to the bottom of the clouds.  That will give it a “silvery” glow right?? 🙂

I have some more cards to share so stop by again soon,

2015 CATALOGUE LAUNCH MAKE AND TAKES!

I thought I would show you the Make and Takes we made at my launch last weekend.  I shared some of the fun in an earlier post.

Firstly, we made a bookmark showing the new Incolors and using the cute new set “Sprinkles of Life”.

The top of a strip of Whisper White (5cm x 21cm) was punched with the Scallop Tag Topper Punch. One of the greetings was stamped in Memento Ink at the top.  How cute is this saying?? Right at the bottom the cone was stamped in Tip Top Taupe and then each ice-cream scoop stamped in a different colour.  There is a matching punch which we could have punched out the scoops but to keep it simple and quick they were just stamped directly on to the card.  Everyone could choose their colour of the new Incolor Dotted Lace Trim.

Now for the card. I changed my mind a few times with what we do leading up to this.  This card was inspired by a few cards I had seen on Pinterest.  Once again, each guest could choose their own colour.

This is using the set ‘I Think You’re Great’. The scallop lines were stamped in Delightful Dijon (or what they chose). The “hi” cloud was stamped in their matching base card colour and hand cut.The flowers were punched from Watermelon Wonder card using the small flower punch in the Itty Bitty Accent Punch Pack. A little bling and some white twine finished it off.  Now of course it’s nice to have a matching envelope.  So with the new Envelope paper we could make one using the Envelope Punch Board.

For some guests who didn’t like the “hi” on their card they could make an alternative in their chosen colour with the “Happy Birthday” from ‘Remembering Your Birthday’ set.  It was nice to have a matching envelope to go with it too. 🙂

Sorry if you missed my launch last weekend, I know for some people distance is an issue 😦  If you would like me to share some fun projects with you and your friends, why not invite me to come to your place and we can have some fun stamping together.  If you are further afield, then you can have a Catalogue Party yourself.  Collect some orders from your friends and send them to me.  I can have the orders sent back directly to you – and the bonus you still earn all the exciting little hostess benefits yourself.  You can check off some of those items on your Wish List – and get them for Free!! Do it!  🙂

Thanks for stopping by today.  It’s nice to have you visit me from near and far.  Have a wonderful day xx

CATALOGUE LAUNCH REVIEW!

I thought I would share some of the things from my launch on the weekend.  It was such a fun time and I am sorry if you couldn’t make it. 🙂

Firstly, I have to show you my butterfly wall.  It is a bit hard to photograph.  The lighting is not the best.  It is a bit overcast today when I took these photos.

I will show you some close-ups. I have used the Butterflies Thinlets and the cute new Incolor Blossom Accents.

These are some of the treat bags I made for my lovely guests.  Sorry I didn’t take photos of all the flower colours.  These were last minute things as my order didn’t arrive until the 11th hour. The glue was still drying when the first guests arrived 🙂

I used the large Cello bags. I added some of the sheets from the ‘Cherry on Top’ DSP stacks and added a doily.  I cut some Balloons and banners with the Balloon Framelits and added a chocolate treat and some post-it notes.

It is hard to tell in the photo but I ran the bag through the Big Shot with the Boho Chic Embossing Folder.

Here is a close-up of the pegs for the bags.  I punched out a flower with the Petite Petals Punch and adhered a flower onto it with the Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  This was then adhered to a little peg.  It was a simple, cute idea.  I got the idea from a lovely friend of mine 🙂

I thought I would share the Colour Comparison chart for the new Incolors.  It’s a good way to see how they fit in with other current colours.  (Once again sorry about the lighting!  I really have to do something about this). 🙂

Next post I will show you the Make and Takes we did.  I think that is enough photos for one day. 🙂
