NATURE’S BEAUTY FOR WORLD CARDMAKING DAY 2019!

This weekend is World Cardmaking Day. A great day to celebrate what we love – to create cards and sharing them.

This weekend I am having a special class to celebrate World Cardmaking Day.  It is focusing specifically on the Nature’s Beauty stamp set. We are getting together not just to make cards but to raise money for Mental Health.  I will show you one of the cards we will be making but also tell you how you can help me raise money for Mental Health too, even it you can’t make the class. 

For this card I stamped the fox in Memento Black and coloured them with the Stampin’ Blends; Calypso Coral and Mint Macaron.  The white card was cut with the Stitched Rectangles Dies and trimmed off a little at the top to straighten it off.  The strip of paper is from the Mosaic Mood Specialty Designer Series Paper.  On top of that you wrap around some Linen Thread.

The trees were stamped several times in Mint Macaron on the card mat with some stamped snow drops along the top of the card.

I am so looking forward to this fun class this weekend.  BUT if you can’t make it you can support Mental Health too.  Let me tell you how.

  • Order the Nature’s Beauty stamp set, Stampin’ Up! will donate $4.25 to local Mental Health Organisations.
  • Place any order between October 3rd and October 6th and I will donate 20% commission to Headspace.

This is for Australian residents only sorry.

Here is the Nature’s Beauty Stamp set if you haven’t noticed it. It is tucked away on the very last page of the Holiday Catalogue. It is $37 AUD.

HOW TO ORDER:

Order directly to me by emailing or phoning me.

OR order Online -> HERE. Please use the Host Code: 3JU96AZ

Any order receives a small gift to say Thanks.  Orders over $78 will receive the Tutorial Bundle of 12 projects from a group of Demonstrators from around the world that I am a part of.

I appreciate your support. Thank You.

Have a great weekend and I hope that you get to make a card yourself this weekend.

WRAPPED IN PLAID CHRISTMAS GLEAMING!

Today I wanted to show you the second card everyone got to make at the Hot Chocolate Bar Holiday Catalogue Launch.  If you missed the other card head back a post.

This card is made using the Christmas Gleaming Bundle but I matched it with the Wrapped in Plaid Designer Series Paper. It gives it a totally different look.

I made this card for a swap group I have been in too.  I will show you the other cards I received in the swap in a later post.

So this is the card.  It’s a half-fold card.  That’s what I call it anyway.

The card was inspired by a card by Julie Davison.  It was using a totally different stamp set and paper but I liked the idea.

To create the card, cut your card vertically in half giving you a long piece of card.  Score that in half.  Then I cut one section of it in half.  It’s a very easy fold to do but something a little different.

I cut a length of the Wrapped in Paper and punched the end with the Banner Triple Punch.  You can create it any length you like.  The width though is 5cm (2″) so it can fit in the punch.

The ornament was stamped in Cherry Cobbler on white card and punched with the Gleaming Ornament Punch.  It was then layered on a Cherry Cobbler circle cut with the Stitched Circles dies.  The little flourishes were stamped in Shaded Spruce on the front of the card.

Here is the inside.  Adhere a piece of White card inside and you will see this from the front which I stamped the holly on. The little dots are stamped in Crumb Cake around the holly.

It’s a fun card and very easy layout.

Here are a few cards using different prints from the Wrapped In Plaid paper.

Try it sometime yourself with maybe even a different stamp set.

Happy Stamping,

Jenny

HOT CHOCOLATE BAR CATALOGUE REVIEW!

A few weeks ago now I had the catalogue launch for the 2019 Holiday Catalogue.  I decided on a Hot Chocolate Bar for it.  Since Christmas is so hot here it’s not the time for Hot Chocolate.  Actually it had been quite hot the days leading up to the weekend so it was a bit ironic.  On the day though the weather cooled down.  It was a lot of fun and always so nice for everyone to see what is out for their Christmas creating.

I thought I would share a little bit of it with you.

Firstly, since it was a Hot Chocolate Bar I made up the little gifts in take-away coffee cups.  I know they are not environmentally friendly but I had these sitting around so why not use them.

They were decorated with the snowflake from the Christmas Layers Dies from the Dazzling Glimmer Paper.  It is a bit hard to see the sparkle.  How gorgeous is that Cherry Cobbler Diagonal stripe Ribbon.

The sentiment is from the Itty Bitty Christmas set but check the frame.  You might actually miss these in the catalogue.  They are created with the Ornate Frames Dies from Shaded Spruce card and then a Cherry Cobber Scallop square from the Layering Squares Dies.

See it here closer.

In the cups I had some ribbon and little embellishments and of course the obligatory chocolate treat. 🙂

We made 2 cards on the day.  I will show you one today and then another tomorrow.

We used the Brightly Gleaming Suite for the cards.

The card above is quite simple really but it looks quite classy with the gorgeous shiny copper accents on the Brightly Gleaming Specialty Designer Series Paper and the sparkly Star Designer Elements. The Copper Foil was embossed with the Hammered Metal 3D Embossing Folder.  Doesn’t that look a cool effect.

When I made the card originally I made a small gift tag up with some “bits” left over.  It’s good to have a matching tag.

The Classic Weave Ribbon is gorgeous with the embossed copper words on it.

I will show you the other card next time.

Until then, why not stop on by my store and check out all the Brightly Gleaming items in the suite. HEAD -> HERE.

If you want to order any of these please use the HOST CODE: 3JU96AZN

Or you can contact me directly to order. (Australian residents only).

Thanks for visiting.  Be sure to stop by again to see the other project. And By the way, If you live in Wollongong be sure to come along to a class sometime.  We are a friendly bunch.  It will be great to see you.

DAISY LANE GIFT CARD HOLDER!

I can now share this project with you as I know it has been delivered.  I recently had a request for a Gift Card for one of my customers.  It was ordered by her Sister In Law who contacted me.  Of course one doesn’t provide just a Gift Card.  It must be dressed up.  So here is the Gift Card packaging.

It’s just a simple style.  I will share more about that further below.  The front is decorated with daisies.  2 large Daisies were stamped and punched with the Daisy Punch.  2 smaller Daisies were stamped and punched with the Medium Daisy Punch.  They were all layered together and curled up a little.  A Clear Gem was added in the centre.

The leaves were punched with the Leaf Punch.  See the leaf?  I ran a score line down the centre of the leaf and folded it slightly.  This adds a little dimension to your leaf.

The Sentiment is from the Itty Bitty Greetings.  I stamped it on a little strip of white card and sponged the edges with the Petal Pink ink.

The paper is from the Magnolia Lane Designer Series Paper.

This is the inside of the holder.  I stamped some of the fern leaves inside.

The colours look very different in the photos to each other. I can say they are both the same one but the lighting changed effecting the colour of the holder.

To make your own:

Cut your card to 10.5cm x 15.5cm.  Score at 6cm and 13cm.

4 1/8″ x 6 1/8″.  Score at 2 3/8″ x 5 1/8″

I stapled the small flap down but you could adhere it with strong tape.  Be sure the tape is not too wide so you have enough room for the card to fit. Decorate it as you like.  Card mat for the front  and paper piece is slightly smaller on each layer (4mm or 1/8″).

Hope that helps.

Are you in need of a Gift Card?  Maybe for yourself (because it is the perfect gift for you) or it is for a friend or family.  You can order it to any value.  I have Christmas Gift Cards too so keep that in mind as Christmas approaches.

Thanks for visiting,

WEDNESDAY’S WOW! #80 – KEEP YOUR DIES SAFE WITH THIS MAGNETIC DIE BOARD!

Wednesday’s WOW! #80.  I have a very useful tip for you today with this Magnetic Die Board.  I thought I had shown you this tip already but apparently not.

In my classes I found that the dies we were using kept going missing.  They would get buried under papers or bits.  They would drop on the floor and disappear.  We spent a lot of time in class looking for them.  Some months ago I came up with this idea.  Since then – no more missing dies.  Everyone knows when they use them they go straight back on the board.  It is such a time-saver and has reduced the stress. 🙂

You might find it useful yourself.  I have it standing near the Big Shot machine and have all the dies on it that we will use in the projects for that class.

How to make one yourself

It’s very easy to make yourself.  I picked up a cheap photo frame from a discount shop.  Opened it up and took out the glass. I cut Magnetic sheets to size and adhered them to a piece of card.  Then inserted them back in the frame without adding the glass though.

Place it near your diecut machine and put the dies on it that you are working on.  For a single project you may not need it but if you are making a large project or a couple at a time then you can store all your dies on it while you are working.

I hope you find this tip useful.

Thanks for visiting me today wherever you are in the world.  I love having you visit and I love sharing my little crafting world with you. ❤

Have a great day,

Jenny

SAILING HOME LIGHTHOUSE!

A very quick card for you today using the Sailing Home Bundle. 

For this card I had some “bits” left on my table from creating lots of cards with the suite.  So we don’t want them to go to waste right?

The Night of Navy card mat was embossed with the Subtles Embossing Folder.  I was going to use that on another card and didn’t end up using it so it worked for here.  I had the strip of paper from the Come Sail Away paper pack leftover and even the diecut ship wheel.  So a little stamping and sticking together and the card was done.

But wait, what about that cute little stitched sentiment diecut.  I think I sold a few sets this weekend just with this little banner alone.  Don’t we just love the stitched dies?? 🙂

FLIRTY DAISIES!

This week I am sharing some Daisy cards with you using the Daisy Lane Bundle.  

I am sharing this card with you first.  I am not sure about it still but, well … I am still putting it out here as it may inspire someone – in some way.

We are just keeping it simple with this one with a little stamping of the daisies in Flirty Flamingo and Rich Razzleberry.

Just one stamped and punched daisy on one of the daisies to highlight it.  Add a little Clear Faceted Gem to the centre.

Sometimes you can just do simple right. 🙂

I will share more daisies with you again next post,

Jenny
