SUNDAY SUITES – POINSETTIA PLACE SUITE!

Today’s Sunday Suites is the Poinsettia Place Suite. It’s about time I checked this suite out. It is so gorgeous and has been so popular. So let’s look at it.

This is all that is in the Poinsettia Place Suite Collection.

The Poinsettia Place Suite Collection includes:
– Poinsettia Petals Photopolymer Stamp Set
– Poinsettia Dies
– Poinsettia Place Designer Series Paper
– Plush Poinsettia Specialty Paper
– Beaded Pearls
– Real Red 3/8″ (1 cm) Sheer Ribbon

The paper itself is just so gorgeous. Check it out below.

This is the Poinsettia Petals Bundle with the stamp set and the dies.

Some of the dies cut the stamped flower shape and some create an embossing on the leaves. Check it out.

We need to look closer at the Poinsettia Place Designer Series Paper.

You get 12 sheets of 6 different designs. The colours in the prints are Bumblebee, Garden Green, Old Olive, Real Red, Soft Suede, Whisper White. Some of these flowers on the prints you can cut out and just have that on your projects.

BUT, how gorgeous is this Plush Poinsettia Specialty Paper. I have shared some projects with this recently. The flocked designs are on white vellum and look so beautiful as a background or layered over patterned paper. Ooh! And they feel so good.

You need to see some products with this gorgeous array of products. Pretty papers and pretty stamps. These are created by Stampin’ Up! artists.

Some of that gorgeous Plush Poinsettia paper on these projects. Also in this suite of products are these beautiful Beaded Pearls. They make lovely centres for the projects.

And another project using completely different colourings to the suite but still showing the gorgeousness.

Not much time left to get the Poinsettia Place Suite of products. You can see them and order in my store -> HERE.

Or you can conact me directly to place your order.

Have a great Sunday,

Jenny

ONSTAGE @ HOME TEAM DAY!

Last weekend was the Stampin’ Up! Onstage event @ Home. It was sad not to meet together but a few from my team got together which was a lot of fun.

It was lovely of Sarah to open her home up to us and we could watch the big TV screen together with all the sessions and chat about them. There is always lots of ‘oohs’ and ‘aahs’. 🙂

We had a card display and I made up some gifts for my team.

Here are the little gifts. I included a Stampin’ Up! file folder with some Stampin’ Up! hand-outs, a clipboard (great for all those sessions notes), and I made up a little pack with a highlighter, sticky notes and a Stampin’ Up! magnet. These were all gifted in past Stampin’ Up! convention bags.

These were little table gifts for the tables. I made them up using some retired pillow boxes and decorated them with the new Dandy Garden suite. These are some gorgeous new products coming in the 2021 Occasions Catalogue starting in January. I thought this sentiment was good as we start out on a new Stampin’ Up! year.

Of course one needs to be hydrated at these events so I made up some bottle tags using the cute Zany Zebras.

Just some of the name tags. Sarah created these which were great!

And then you must have Prize Patrol right. We had drawings over the 2 days for some fun prizes. And that was in addition to the Stampin’ Up! giveaways over the weekend.

Some card displays with the Curvy Celebrations and the Curvy Christmas stamp set, the Dove of Hope and a few other stamp sets.

The Dandy Garden Suite. I will share closer views of the cards over the next couple of weeks and months. I think you will love this suite.

The Poinsettia Petals card samples created by Sarah.

Getting some creating going on with the Dandy Garden project. I will share those with you very soon.

WARM AND TOASTY POLAR BEAR

A quick post for you today with this cute little Polar Bear. He is from the Warm and Toasty stamp set from the 2020 Holiday Catalogue. Don’t you just love his happy face. 🙂

I used the ‘Tis The Season Designer Series Paper. (This is one of the paper packs for 15% off this month so you might want to grab some of this. It has some great patterns in the pack).

The polar bear is stamped with Memento black ink on white card that has been diecut with the scallop rectangle die from the Stitched So Sweetly Dies. It was then coloured with the Stampin’ Blends. The sentiment stamped on Balmy Blue is also cut with one of the Stitched So Sweetly Dies. I love the variety of shapes in this die set.

In Australia? Any of these products can be ordered through my store or contact me directly and I will help you with your order. Visit my store -> HERE.

If ordering online please use the Host Code – 9J63PU4C

Hope you like this Polar Bear card. The Warm and Toasty stamp set is just so cute.

Happy Stamping,

Jenny

PLUSH POINSETTIA TEAM CARD FOR WORLD CARDMAKING DAY!

Last weekend you might know was World Cardmaking Day. For a little different challenge/activity for my team I sent them all a card kit containing the same materials. I asked them to create a card with the kit and share it on our team Facebook page. They could stamp, cut, emboss, add to it any way they liked. It’s been interesting to see everyone’s cards all with the same basic materials.

I hope I can share some of them with you soon if they don’t mind. Today I thought I would share you my card I created. Of course I had to create one too. 🙂

Firstly, this is the card kit I sent out. It has a basic card base in Cherry Cobbler and a smaller card mat. The white card is slightly smaller than the card mat. The piece of Plush Poinsettia Specialty Paper is slightly smaller than the card base.

This is the card I created.

The holly from the Christmas Gleaming stamp set was coloured with Stampin’ Blends. Be sure to stamp these in Memento ink before you colour with the Blends. Then fussy cut them with scissors. No dies for these.

The card mats were diecut with the Stitched Rectangles Dies. It is hard to tell but I heat embossed the sentiment with Gold Embossing Powder. The card was finished with some of the gorgeous Gold Ribbon and a Gold Gilded Gem.

What would you create with these same pieces? If you create one drop me an email and share it with me. I would love to see.

If you would like to join the fun of my JEN’s INK team, you can join the Stampin’ Up! family. Select $235 of products and pay just $169. You can quickly do that -> HERE.

Apart from lots of fun you get a discount every time you order. You have access to products EARLY!! You get to attend some great Stampin’ Up! events. And so much more. Totally great value. 🙂

WEDNESDAY’S WOW! #111 – CHECK THE SWEETEST TIME FOR CHRISTMAS!

Wednesday’s WOW! #111. I wanted to share a sweet bundle with you today – and I mean sweet. It’s the Sweetest Time Bundle. (You can find it on p21 of the Holiday Catalogue)

This is a great one for your Christmas projects with such detailed dies. The Sweetest Time Bundle includes the Sweetest Time stamp set and the Sweetest Borders Dies.

The Sweetest Time stamp set contains some ‘classic’ Christmas images with the holly, the candy cane and the 3 candles. I have to say I don’t normally go for these ‘classic’ style images.

It’s the Sweetest Borders Dies that I particularly wanted to look at today though.

With these dies you diecut the holly border. There are some positive and negative parts to it. The holly creates a great border that you can layer on your projects. By diecutting the border twice in different colours you can use part of the diecut within the negative of the other. You can see it in the sample above. That’s so fun isn’t it? What a great way to add dimension to your Christmas projects.

Check this sample out below. (created by Stampin’ Up! Artists). Let me explain it as I think it is.

CREATE A SPONGED HOLLY BORDER

Add colour to your piece of white card which is the same size as the white card base. This could be by sponging or watercolouring over it, however you like to add the colour. Diecut the holly border from the piece. Adhere the half diecut card to the white card front.

Diecut some holly. I love that you have the scored lines in the holly already. So great. Stamp the other images and the sentiment and diecut them. Adhere them to the front of the card.

Isn’t this a great Bundle? Why not add it to your Wish List.

If you are in Australia and “need” to buy this bundle now to get your Christmas creating on then I would love to help you with your order. Head to my store -> HERE.

Please use the Host Code: 9J63PU4C or you can contact me directly at jghayward@yahoo.com and I will get back to you ASAP.

Thanks for shopping with me,

WARM AND TOASTY REINDEER!

Are you loving the Warm and Toasty Stamp set? It is so cute.

I have a sweet card for you today with the Reindeer.

I have to say I was a little nervous colouring this reindeer.   I am not the greatest at it but I was pleased how this turned out in the end. I used the Stampin’ Blends.

The paper is from the ‘Tis the Season Designer Series Paper.  You don’t need much more to the card really. I added a little  loop of Red Sheer Ribbon.

In Australia? Grab the Warm and Toasty stamp set in my store -> HERE

I think you will really enjoy this set.  Even in Australia here where we don’t have snow for Christmas you just can’t help but love these happy characters for your Christmas projects.

LIFE IS BEAUTIFUL – SPOTTY BACKGROUND

I wanted to share this card with you today using the Life Is Beautiful stamp set found in the 2020 Holiday Catalogue.  It is a sweet one.

This card was one we created in class a few weeks ago.  I found the idea on Pinterest BUT I didn’t save it so I don’t know the original creator so sorry about that.

I love the idea of using the “dots” in the set as a background.  These dots give a Bokeh effect too which is cool.  That is where there is different tone to the stamps, so  a light and dark effect.

I used Calypso Coral, Bumblebee and Granny Apple Green.  The words are from the Well Written Dies. It’s all layered on to a mat using the Ornate Layers Dies.

You can see the Life Is Beautiful set -> HERE in my store. 

In Australia? You can order there or contact me directly and I will help you out. If ordering online please use the Host Code: TAWWBMRC

Thank You for your order.  I appreciate each and every one.

Happy Stamping,

Jenny

TIS THE SEASON DOVE!

I’ve told you how much I love the Dove of Hope Bundle right … 🙂  It’s a gorgeous set.

I have shared a few cards already.  This one uses the Tis The Season Designer Series Paper. 

It’s simple in design but the dove is heat embossed in Gold and diecut.  Great to have the matching Detailed Dove Dies.  The gorgeous Real Red Sheer Ribbon is beautiful and soft and so easy to tie bows.  The ribbon was wrapped around the card mat and paper piece before adhering it to the Garden Green card base. 

Here is the beautiful Dove of Hope stamp set.  What do you think?? Are you liking it??

In Australia?  It is now available in my store -> HERE.  

Please use the Host Code:26MVE4MV  I appreciate each and every order.  Thank You. Be sure you don’t mark it anonymous when you order or I can’t send out you a little Thank You.

If you would rather me add the order for you please phone me on 0439 844574 or email jghayward@yahoo.com

Have a great weekend and keep on crafting!!
