2020 ANNUAL CATALOGUE SWAPS – ROUND 2!

Yesterday I shared some Card Swaps that I received recently.  That was Round 1 of the Swaps.  If you missed that be sure to head back a post.

Today is Round 2.  I think the Forever Fern Bundle was a popular choice for this round. Once again I am not mentioning individual names for each swap but Thank You to those who swapped with me.

Lots of flowery cards.  The card on the top left on the photos above is a Dutch Fold card which is cool.  The one below that is a shaker card with the Celebrate Sunflowers Bundle. My swap for this round is the card on the bottom right in the photo just above with the Tasteful Touches Bundle.

I will share more details on my swaps in next post so be sure to stop by.

Happy Stamping,

Jenny

PS  Don’t forget it’s Bonus Days time.  Every $90 you spend in July you receive a $9 voucher to redeem in August.  If you need help to place your order I am happy to help you.

2020 ANNUAL CATALOGUE SWAPS!

Recently I joined a Card Swap with some other Australian Demonstrators using products from the 2020 Stampin’ Up! Annual Catalogue.  Card swaps are great as you get to see projects with other stamps you may not have or using colours or techniques that you don’t normally see.

I joined in 2 rounds in the swaps so I got LOTS of cards.  It meant I created 2 different cards for these but that’s OK. 🙂

I am going to share Round 1 cards today and Round 2 tomorrow.  I have included my card swap but I will share more detail of these in a later post.

I’m not posting individual names on these cards but for those who swapped with me – Thank You.

If you would like more information on any of the cards or would like a close-up photo of any please drop me a comment.

POWER OF HOPE SWAP CARD!

I can now share you my card I created for our recent Team Shoebox Swap.  I have shared the other cards recently.  This card was also the card I created for a group swap I was in.

I have used the Power of Hope stamp set and the 3D Stone Embossing Folder.

The black card was embossed with the embossing folder and you can’t tell in the photo but I swiped over the Versamark inkpad over the raised embossed parts on the card and it gave a little shine.

The Petal Pink card was stamped with the tree from the Power of Hope stamp set and the “Dots” were from the Beauty Abounds set.

The lady she was stamped in Memento and coloured with the Rich Razzleberry, Petal Pink and Black Stampin’ Blends.  The white card was cut with the largest die from the Stitched So Sweetly dies.  The sentiment was a bit bare just in white so I also cut a small piece of Gold Foil both diecut with the small rectangle from Stitched Rectangles Dies.  I finished the card off with a little of the Petal Pink Metallic Edged ribbon.

Hope you like it.  I have made this card quite a few times now.

This Power of Hope set is available Free as a Bundle with the Embossing Folder for Sale-A-Bration with orders over $180 AUD.  I hope you be sure to get your set before the end of March.  I think it’s a beautiful set and just a little different to others we have.

Have a great day,

Jenny

CHRISTMASTIME IS HERE SWAPS!

Christmas is fast approaching.  I have just time to show you these 2 cards I received for swaps recently.  These are using the Christmastime is Here suite. 

This first card was created by Peta one of my team members.  I received this as a swap for Onstage in early November but hadn’t shared it with you yet.  The copper makes it very classy.  She used the Stitched Rectangles Dies to create the card mats for the gorgeous array of flowers.

This next one is just a mini card.  It is about 7.5cm x 5cm (3″ x 2″) – roughly anyway.   The flowers are cut from the gorgeous Christmastime is Here specialty Designer Series Paper.  This one was a swap from my upline Vanessa. She added a little stamping too.

This Christmastime is Here Suite of products are still available in my store -> HERE.  Just because Christmas is over don’t think you can’t use them.  They are beautiful, elegant products for a birthday or wedding.

If ordering online please use the Host Code: REKK2FW4

Wishing you all a wonderful Christmas time however you spend it.  I hope it is filled with love and special people around you.  For some I know Christmas can be a difficult time.  Know that you are loved and I pray that God’s grace and strength will fill you at this time.

Much love to you.

SAILING HOME MINI CARD!

Today I have a mini card for you using the Sailing Home bundle.  I received this one in a Team swap last month I think.  I am not sure who it was from sorry. 🙂

This is a mini Card measuring about 7.5cm x 7.5cm (3″x3″)

From what I can tell with this card the sky was sponged in the top part of the card using Pool Party ink. The water was created using the lines in the High Tide set.  It’s great when the stamp sets co-ordinate with each other. I think it was given a light wash with the Aquapainter to blend out the colours. The lighthouse was stamped separately and then diecut and coloured in small sections of it.

It’s a sweet card so Thank You to whoever made this card.

Come back tomorrow so you can see more cards using the Sailing Home stamps and the co-ordinating Smooth Sailing dies.

WILDLY HAPPY MINI THANKS!

I have been having some fun with the Wildly Happy Stamp set lately.

I made a number of mini cards to have for our team swaps and also to have for Customer Thanks. As I had to make quite a few I didn’t have time to colour them – and you don’t have to all the time.

Stampin' Up! Wildly Happy

These are mini cards measuring 10cm x 10cm (or 4″x4″). To get 3 out of 1 sheet of A4 card I cut the card at 9.9cm and 19.8cm. Then cut each piece at 19.8cm and score at 9.9cm.

I made a few of each of the 2019 Incolors with the different cute animals in the stamp set. The card mats were embossed with the Swirls and Curls Embossing Folder.

The sentiment tag is actually from the Smooth Sailing dies.

Hope you like them.

Have a great weekend.

ONSTAGE SWAP #1 – GEARED UP GARAGE!

As you might know I went to New Zealand recently for the Stampin’ Up! Onstage Live event.  It was a fantastic time.  You know what I love the most about these events?? Sure we get the new catalogue and we get to see the awesome new products BUT, THE BEST part of it is catching up with my Stampin’ Up! friends and meeting many for the first time.  Especially when you have chatted online.  It’s a fantastic time.

I will share more about Onstage shortly and show you some photos but for now I thought I would show you my Swap cards.  With swapping you create a number of a card and swap them with others. Swapping is a great time to meet up with other Demonstrators too. You get to come home with lots of different cards and ideas.

I made 2 different cards.  This is one of the cards I made.  It uses the Geared Up Garage Bundle.  I have shared lots of cards with this bundle over the last week or 2 while I was away.  It’s fitting that I share you this one first.

I made 3 different versions of this card.  Good to mix it up a bit when you make so many.  I embossed the card mat with the gear dies in the Garage Gears Thinlits and used the Classic Garage Designer Series Paper.  The sentiment was stamped and cut with the Bunch of Banners dies.

See the background?? I created this with the smooshing technique.  You can see how to create this effect in this post -> HERE.

I will share the other swap card next post so stay tuned.

ONSTAGE – BUDDY GIFTS AND SWAPS!

Did you catch the video in yesterday’s post with the swaps I received from Onstage?  If not, head back to the last post. I have the still photos there too.

Today I wanted to share with you my buddy gifts and the swaps I made to share.

BUDDY GIFT PACKS

I made up little Gift Packs – or Onstage survival kits. 😉 I made up 4 of them.

These packs contained a notebook.  I loved these notebooks.  Two had on the front “Don’t Forget To Be Awesome” and the other two were “My Awesome Book of Brilliant Ideas”.  I thought these would be great to write notes in at the Onstage sessions.  In the packs there was some mini Tic Tacs, Tea Bag, Kit Kat Chocolate and of course Mini Post-It notes for the new catalogues.  I will show you a close up of the tags I made.

THE TAGS

A scallop square was cut with the Layering Square Framelits and also a larger black square.  On the white card I stamped the sentiment from the Around The Corner stamp set.  Then stamped the small “flowery” centre shape on to Mango Melody Card and punched it out with the 3/4″ circle punch.  Then I diecut a flower in Mango Melody Card from the Flourish Thinlits and layered them together.  Before adhering the flower to the card with Dimensionals I stamped the leaf from the Around The Corner set in Granny Apple Green.  The Black Glittered Organdy Ribbon was adhered between the white scallop square card and the black card.  They are simple but I loved how they turned out.

MY SWAP

I didn’t have a lot of time to make swaps but I really wanted to and I knew I wasn’t going to have a lot of time to swap on the Saturday as I was helping with registration in the morning. So I kept the card simple and only ended up making 15 of them.

This was my swap card.

I have used the Rooted in Nature Bundle.  The tree and the leaf were heat embossed in Copper and diecut out. The sentiment is from Wood Words stamp set.  I wanted to go for an angle look so angled the paper from the Love What You Do Specialty Paper.  Underneath the paper there was a strip of the Copper Foil Paper. To finish I tied a knot using the Copper Trim.

Now since I hadn’t made many swaps I had a few doubles of cards from recent classes so thought I would add those to the swap mix.  These are the group of cards.  I had 2-3 of each card. These were received well too.

Thanks everyone for swapping with me.  I hope you liked your card you received from me.

A SPECIAL THANK YOU CARD

Earlier I mentioned that I was helping on the Saturday.  This was the special card I received from Stampin’ Up! to say Thanks.  Totally unexpected.  It was signed by all the staff that were there.  How lovely.

This uses the Tropical Escape Designer Series Paper.

Thanks for visiting me.  I hope you like them.

Tomorrow is another 12 Weeks of Christmas Edition so see you then.

TROPICAL CHIC PAIR!

Here are 2 more cards from our Shoebox Swap a couple of months ago.  I think I am nearly caught up. 🙂

These 2 cards use the Tropical Chic Bundle.  I don’t have this Bundle so it is good to get to use these.  I can’t remember who shared these cards. Sorry.  They were 2 members from our clever Inky Fingers team.

I love the effect of the diecut palm fronds especially the double one on the right.  For that card, diecut the “frond Square” from the Tropical Thinlits dies in both Lemon Lime Twist and in Shaded Spruce.  Snip off 2 of the thinner palm leaves on the Lemon Lime Twist diecut and then adhere the 2 together.  How clever!  On this card two some of the palm leaves were stamped in Petal Pink on Petal Pink card to create a subtle background.

There is a bit of cutting and assembling so they are not quick cards but they are fun to put together.

TEAM SHOEBOX SWAP – DAY 3!

Some more cards today from our Team Shoebox Swap.  Really we have some amazing talent in our Inky Fingers Team.

Today I will share the cards using the Rooted in Nature Bundle.

This one below is using a number of different patterns from the Nature’s Poem Designer Series Paper. I like how the words are cut apart.

This one below is just gorgeous.  A white card mat is embossed with the Pinewood Planks Embossing Folder.  I hadn’t seen this folder used before.  I like it.  You should see those leaves in real life.  They are heat embossed in Copper on to Vellum.  So nice.  The other leaves are embossed with one of the leaf embossed dies in the Nature’s Roots Framelits set.  The sentiment is heat embossed in copper too.  This is such a striking card.

I hope you like these ones.  Yes still more to come.  It was a busy day at our team meeting. 🙂
