cards, Catalogues, Sale-A-Bration, Stampin' Up!


The Rings of Love Paper available for Sale-A-Bration is quite a surprise really. I have been playing a lot with it!

Sharing two cards with you today as we are running out of time!

Firstly with some scraps of paper I had left I put this card together. and just added a sentiment and embossed the Mint Macaron card mat with the Brick and Mortar 3D Embossing Folder.

The sentiment is from the Go To Greetings stamp set.

Now to my second card.

With my class this week with the Adventurous Journey Stamp Set I have been having lots of fun creating with it. I thought this print from the Rings of Love paper looked like a watery background. I really liked the effect of it. And no mess with creating a watercolour piece!

The sentiment is from the Painted Poppies Stamp set stamped on a diecut circle from the Beautiful Shapes Dies.

This week Sale-A-Bration all comes to an end and you won’t be able to get this paper again. Don’t miss it … 😦

I have shared a few cards with it recently so head back a few posts if you missed it.

To grab your bonus paper place an order over $90 AUD and you can pick that as your choice. Or there are lots of other great bonus products too.

cards, Stampin' Up!, Techniques


Wednesday’s WOW! #140 – Ways to use the Embossing Paste.

Have you used the Embossing Paste? I have to admit I haven’t nearly enough. If you like adding that extra texture to your projects then this paste would be just the thing.

Let’s see how to use it.

The Embossing Paste comes in little tubs. 4oz or 1.18ml. You can get it in Matte finish or Shimmery White which has a little sparkle.

With a little spatula you can scrape on your paste. Use it directly on your projects to add texture or use it through a mask for an effective pattern. There are masks available but you could also use a diecut shape on Foil Sheet or acetate to apply the paste through it.

Leave it to dry for some time before completing the project or you can use the Heat Tool gently to speed up the process.

See the effect with the different masks available. Apply it all over or just in sections for your project. Be sure to wash off your masks straight away.

Try colouring the paste.

In a small container mix together drops of reinker to a little paste. The more reinker, the more intense the colour is. Then apply the paste as you would.

This project below uses a diecut shape using the Aspen Tree Dies. The shape was cut in Silver Foil as this is more rigid than card. Apply some Embossing Paste adding the coloured paste to the lower section and then add some plain paste to the top section. It adds some lovely texture.

It is hard to see in the photo clearly sorry. Project created by Stampin’ Up! artists.

You can find the Paste in my store.

For the Matte Embossing Paste ($14.00 AUD), See it -> HERE.

For the Shimmery Embossing Paste ($15.75 AUD), See it -> HERE.

Go and grab some and add texture to your next project.

Shop in store at the above links or contact me directly and I am happy to help you out.

Have a great day,

For today’s card we have the Hippest Hippos Stamp Set. I wanted to use the Picture This Dies.

With the Picture This Dies I added some different pieces of pretty Happiness of Hues Paper and also added texture with some co-ordinating card embossed with different folders (Bark 3D, Splatters and the Gingham Folders)

I like the fun, bright colours in this card. And that hippo … You can’t help but smile when you see him.

And … You really are the best too so don’t forget that.

cards, Catalogues, Stampin' Up!, Sunday Suites


Today’s Suite for Sunday Suites let’s check out the Rustic Harvest Suite.

Now we don’t have Thanksgiving or use pumpkins like this in Australia. And Autumn is behind us and nearly Spring. YAY! BUT, there are some little gems in this suite that you really want to see wherever you are. So let’s take a look.

This is the full Rustic Harvest Suite Collection.

This Suite includes:

  • Hello Harvest Bundle (Stamp Set and Rustic Pumpkin Dies)
  • Rustic Harvest Designer Series Paper (12 12″x12″ pack)
  • 12 sheets of 12″x12″ Black Cardstock
  • Leaf Label and Amber Gem Combo Pack
  • Embossing Additions Tool Kit

A Closer look at the Hello Harvest Bundle. You have the little vine dies features that add squiggles to any projects. And also swirly shapes in the stamp set. They make great additions. The flower and leaf images are gorgeous to create on your projects.

The Rustic Harvest Designer Series Paper isn’t all pumpkins. There are lovely flower images and pattern prints. Colours in this pack are Basic Black, Cajun Craze, Crushed Curry, Early Espresso, Merry Merlot, Mossy Meadow.

The Embossing Additions Took Kit ($47AUD) includes some great tools for your heat embossing. This includes the Embossing Buddy, Powder Pal Tray, Crafting Tweezers and Crafting Brush.

The Leaf Labels and Amber Gem Combo Pack includes – 25 kraft leaves: 6.4 x 5.7 cm (2-1/2″ x 2-1/4″) and 50 Amber coloured gems, 25 each of 2 sizes: 4 mm, 5 mm.

Let’s check out some ways of using all these lovely products.

(Projects created by Stampin’ Up! artists).

By stamping the flowers twice and layering they create quite a gorgeous display on this card. The extra addition on the card below is the chalkboard effect on the black card. It looks cool.

A way you can use the lovely leaf tags. They are a sweet addition to a gift or other project.

Such pretty paper you don’t need to do too much with it. And stamp the sentiment on some of the paper for an added touch.

Also check the side of the flower paper. It uses the Woven Ribbon. Cut the edge off the ribbon and pull the threads to get a fringed effect. It’s cool! And also it adds some Amber Gems.
