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.

BLOSSOMS IN BLOOM!

A few weeks ago I was playing around with the Blossoms in Bloom bundle.  I have had a lot of fun with it.  I have shared some cards already but thought it was time for some more.

The stamps are great just to simply stamp on your card.

I used Balmy Blue for the flowers.  Then it has the individual leaves stamped in Mossy Meadow, and flower centres stamped in Crushed Curry that you can add to your image.  There are so many different ways of building on your flowers when using this set.

You can give this simple card a little POP though.  For the card below I have diecut the ‘thin’ outline flower die in black card. The black outline highlights the flowers and really lifts it don’t you think??

Stampin' Up! Blossoms in Bloom

TIP: When creating the card using the outline diecut you might like to stamp the flowers first.  Then lay the black diecut outline on to the card and with a pencil lightly outline where the leaves and smaller flowers go.  Then you can remove the diecut and stamp in the leaves and flowers (if you are using them) so they will be in position where they would need to go to line up with the die.  NOTE: I didn’t do that on this card but learnt that’s what should be done when stamping it.  I will share another card later where I did this.

The Blossoms in Bloom Bundle is gorgeous. Do you have it yet? I think it’s a must have with these pretty flowers that you can layer together and there are sentiments for many of your regular occasions.

In Australia? If you would love to order this for your “collection” or any of the other fantastic Stampin’ Up! products I would love to help you out.  You can order online through my store or you can contact me directly on 0439 844574 and I will fix it all up for you with little stress.

WEDNESDAY’S WOW! #105 – LINING UP THE SUNFLOWER STAMP AND DIES!

If you have the Celebrate Sunflowers Bundle do you find it a little frustrating to line up the sunflower die with the stamp OR to even put the stamp back in the stamp case after you have finished?? I have to say I find it quite frustrating – and time consuming. 🙂

I came up with a little tip to reduce frustration – and save time.  I thought  I  would share it  with you today for our Wednesday’s WOW!

Wednesday’s WOW! #105 – Lining up the Sunflower Stamp with the dies and also how to get that stamp back in the stamp case. 

1. Getting the stamp back in to the case.

Firstly we will start with the stamp set. I keep the rubber surround for the stamp set in the case and put the stamps back in to the rubber when I have finished stamping.  It keeps them secure in the case AND you can quickly see if you are missing a stamp.  Which is really good.

With the large sunflower stamp I found it hard to find the position to put it back in.  You had to keep turning it until you thought it lined up.  It took some time.

So, once I had it in the case I placed a mark with a Black permanent marker on the rubber surround and on the edge of the sunflower stamp. Then it can easily slip in place in to the right position. 

I made the mark on the front of the stamp on to the side and then over the edge on to the back of the stamp.  So you can see it when you are stamping. 

2. The next challenge was to line the die up with the stamp.

You now have the mark on the stamp so you can now position the die and make a mark on the die. 

To do this you need to position the stamp face down as that is how will stamp out.  NOTE: I have  placed the sticker  on the back of the stamp. I know some people don’t add the sticker. I think for this type of detailed stamp it would be helpful to.

Then you can  line up the die with the image.  On this image  below I see the mark is fading.  It is up the top.  I will need to add another mark.  I didn’t use permanent marker on this one I think.

3. Now lining up the die with the stamped image to diecut it.

Before you stamp the image on white card make a pencil mark on the card.  Then ink up the stamp and stamp it on to the card with the mark on the stamp lining up near the mark on the card.

Then you can easily position the die on to the card as you line up the marks.  Then diecut that lovely sunflower out.

I hope these tips are clear for you.  I am sure they will save you a lot of time.  It certainly has saved my sanity.

Be sure to the PIN the images to save them for future reference.

In Australia? If you would like to order the Celebrate Sunflowers Bundle they are available in my store now -> HERE.

Or

Email me at jghayward@yahoo.com and I can place the order for you.

I will drop a little card in the mail for you to say THANK YOU. 🙂 I appreciate your orders.

Happy Stamping,

Jenny

People ask – What are my commitments?

– To remain active with Stampin’ Up! you submit orders (yours or with others) of about $480 per quarter.  If you can’t make that – no stress.  You drop as a demonstrator and continue as a customer.  But you have all those bonuses already. WINNING!

CELEBRATE SUNFLOWERS!

I have another card to share with you today using the Celebrate Sunflowers Bundle.  When I first start using a new bundle I “warm up” to it by CASE-ing some cards I find I Pinterest.  Which is what I did with this card.

This is my card.

The card I CASED from Beth can be seen -> HERE.

I didn’t have the In Good Taste Designer Series Paper that was used on the original card so I used Smoky Slate card and embossed it with the Pinewood Planks 3D Embossing Folder.  The sunflowers are coloured with the Stampin’ Blends.

The sunflowers are so bright and happy aren’t they?? 🙂

In Australia and want the Celebrate Sunflowers Bundle for your collection?  It is certainly a great bundle. You can see it in my store -> HERE.

Place an order over $100 and receive a card kit to create 2 cards using the Celebrate Sunflowers Bundle.

WEDNESDAY’S WOW! #104 – LAYERING THE TASTEFUL LABELS DIES!

I have been using the Tasteful Touches Bundle A LOT lately.  While I love the stamp set I really love the dies.  I love that you can use them for your sentiments or for small images and I love that they can be layered together to use on your projects.  I thought you might like to see how to use them more.

Our Wednesday’s WOW! #104 – Layering the Tasteful Labels Dies. 

Firstly, let’s look closely at the dies.  There are 10 dies in the set.  The largest die is 8.9cm x 6.4cm (3-1/2″ x 2-1/2″)

I know it may be a bit hard to tell in this image but with these dies some have a scored edge (top half) and others have a stitched edge (bottom half).  It’s great that there is the different looks in the one set.

Most of the dies can be layered together for your images or sentiments.  I have shown some below for you.  There are so many other options though.

How cool are they??

I hope you found the chart helpful to see ways that you can put your diecuts together. Be sure to PIN the image so you can refer back to it.

If you must have the Tasteful Labels Dies in your stash then they are now available in my store.  Grab them on their own or get them in the Bundle with the Tasteful Touches stamp set.

In Australia?  I would love to help you with ordering them. Visit -> HERE to order.

As a Thanks when you order them I will send you card kits for 2 cards I have created recently with them.  Some of the cards you can check back on the past posts.
