I’M CRAZY ABOUT YOU!

Today I am looking at the Crazy About You set that is retiring.  I have had fun with this set over it’s time.

This one we did as a Stamp A Stack card back a few years ago.  In Night of Navy and Calypso Coral with Crushed Curry for the sentiment piece.    I added a little strip of Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Paper too.  I think we did this in another colour combinations but I can’t seem to find that one. I think it was Daffodil Delight instead of the Calypso Coral. I do like this colour combo though.

I think this one was a Make and Take at a few workshops.  This one was in Primrose Petal and Pear Pizzazz.  Having the diecut words for these cards just gives it a little more dimension.

This one was a card sample.  This was quite some time ago with Lost Lagoon and the 2 step Bird Punch for the leaves.   The background is the Hardwood background stamp which is inked in Crumb Cake.  The sentiment is from Butterfly Basics. 

The flower stamp matches so well with the Flower Medallion Punch (also retiring, $31 AUS). No hand cutting this baby. 🙂

The words in the Crazy About You set are very versatile for so many different occasions. You can also get the ‘Hello You’ Thinlits ($41 AUS).

You have less than one week now to get any of these retiring products.  Be quick now!  Stop on by my store to order.  Please use the HOST CODE: 2WNURG3N

PARTY POP-UPS ARE GOING!

The Party Pop-Up Thinlits have only been around for a short time – and now they are going!  I thought I would show you a few cards I have made with them over the months.

The Thinlits make cool Pop-ups inside the card.  It’s such a WOW!

But you could add them to the front of the card.

The other Pop Up Die in the pack is the Happy Birthday.

For this one I cut the words out from Watercolor Paper and then coloured them with the Aquapainter and Inkpads.  I did add the Wink of Stella to the “flames” although that is hard to tell.

This card below is a Flap Fold.  I hadn’t shown you this one yet.  I made this last year for our nephew’s 40th birthday.

To make this cut your card vertically in half on the short side so you have a long card strip.  On an A4 sheet that would be at the 10.5cm mark.  Then score on the long side at 7.4cm and then at 14.8cm (ie at 1/4 of the card and half way). Fold on the score lines at the half way score line and then back on itself at the first score line.

This is the inside for you to see it.

I cut a circle in the Crushed Curry and placed adhesive on half of the circle at the back and adhere that half on the front flap.  The Designer Series Paper is the Moroccan DSP and the card base is Dapper Denim.

It needed something on the birthday and without making it to bling-y I added a strip of Silver Foil and just one Adhesive Rhinestone in the centre.

You can see the Thinlits set in my store HERE.  Now these are reduced down to $40.  I think they will be a useful addition to your cardmaking not just to make the WOW cards but to add them to card fronts as well.  Grab them now.

 Have a good day,

THE VERSATILE AVANT GARDEN!

The Sale-A-Bration set ‘Avant Garden’ was one of my early choices.  I loved how versatile it was and I have seen so many different ways with it over the last few months.

Here are just a few more that was shared by Stampin’ Up! this morning.  I thought I would share them with you.

Create a wreath, or clear emboss them and give the card a wash with watercolour, or what about some Palm Trees?  I have been wanting to give that a go for a few weeks but time has been a bit short.

Only 3 days left for Sale-A-Bration.  Don’t miss out on getting your free choices.  If Avant Garden is not your choice there are so many other options and even some catalogue products.

Check them all out HERE.

CATALOGUE REVIEW UPDATE!

Finally I can share some of the fun from my Catalogue Review last weekend for the Occasions and Sale-A-Bration Catalogues. I had a session on Friday night and Saturday afternoon. Lots of laughs and creativity was involved I can assure you. 🙂

Firstly, I always like to make little gift bags up for my lovely guests and spoil them with some “bits” from the new catalogue.  (Also a chocolate treat is a must in the bags!). These are the little bags this time.

2017-02-04-11-07-58_wm

These are using the Kraft Tag A Bag Gift Bags in the Annual Catalogue. You know I did mean to emboss these bags BUT …. Well that slipped my mind until afterwards.  I used a strip of the gorgeous Falling In Love DSP and flagged the end of the piece. From a square of the Sweet Sugarplum cardstock I cut the larger flower from the Stylish Stems Framelits and then layered it on some Whisper White cardstock.  I thought the centre was a bit plain so I coloured it with the Early Espresso Watercolor Pencil and lightly brushed it over with the Aquapainter. This lightened the colour a little so it matched with the Kraft bags. I went over it with the Clear Wink of Stella pen for sparkle, although you can’t see that in the photo sadly.

The sentiment is from the Dragonfly Dreams set which I had coloured the “thanks” with the black marker before stamping it. Then punched it out with the Duo Banner Punch.

These are the cards we made.  The first one using Dragonfly Dreams Bundle and the Falling Petals Embossing Folder.  I had Cased this off Pinterest changing the Embossing Folder and adding the touch of the Paper Doily behind it.

img_20170204_190537

The second card was Cased off Pinterest too using the Sale-A-Bration sets Avant Garden and Delicate Details.  I LOVE both these sets!  Sadly I lost my little stamens from the Avant Garden set so we had to add a little dot in the centre of the flowers.  Some were very clever and drew stamens in with the Smoky Slate marker.

2017-02-09-08-02-38

I always forget to take a photo of the groups as it gets pretty busy. I snapped one just as we were finishing up at the Saturday session. Some people had already started to leave. (sorry!) 🙂 There was lots of creative mess happening.

20170204_161636

You might have seen the card tin in the Sale-A-Bration catalogue? I have dressed this one up. Everyone who has a party in the next month or 2 with me goes in the draw to win one.

Maybe I could just give some extras away too. Mmm? If you want a party or your own private stamping event, let me know.  I only have a few dates available so you better be quick.

2017-02-09-08-04-05_wm

There you have it. We had a product playground too for everyone to test out the pencils and a few other new products. That’s always good to test those things out.

Thanks for visiting me.  Visit again soon,

Jenny

DELICATE DETAILS AND A DRAGONFLY!

The last few days I have been busy getting ready for my Occasions and Sale-A-Bration Review this weekend.  Lots of creating happening – even in the heat! I will get to share some of them shortly but I really wanted to share this one first.  I was happy with the result.

I have used the Delicate Details stamp set.  A free choice for Sale-A-Bration this year when you order over $90! This was my first pick for Sale-A-Bration but I have only just managed to ink it up.

Mint Macaron_dragonfly

I used one of the stamps to create a lacy effect by stamping in Memento ink onto Whisper White card. I lined each one up by eye.  I have to say that was a little nerve racking!  You could use a Stamp-A-Ma-Jig (SAMJ) or similar tool.  I always forget to pull my Stamp-A-Ma-Jig out. (or lazy!).

Once I stamped them –  and breathed a sigh of relief – I then inked up the card.  I haven’t got the sponge rollers yet so I used the brayer which is now retired. Funny that, my brayer is in the same box as my SAMJ. 🙂  I used Mint Macaron ink to add the colour gradually going from dark to light.

TO ASSEMBLE THE CARD:

A dragonfly was cut from the Copper Foil Sheet. It looks a bit more gold in the photo. The sentiment was stamped and heat embossed with Copper Embossing Powder on to a strip of Whisper White.  I cut a banner end with scissors.  It needed a little something underneath so I cut a thinner strip from the Copper Foil and cut the end of that too.

The inked piece was added to a Mint Macaron card base.  Before I added the Dragonfly I twirled around some Copper Thread and added some Pearls to finish.  The sentiment was raised up with Dimensionals.

You can check out the Dragonfly Dreams Bundle HERE at my store.  It is $81.25 AUS. Maybe grab an inkpad or some cardstock to take you over $90 and you can grab the gorgeous Delicate Details set from Sale-A-Bration FREE (or grab one of the other great Free products).  Check out the Sale-A-Bration catalogue by clicking on the link in the right hand side bar.

Have a lovely day/night.  It is a little cooler here today and rainy which is nice so I am off to my stamp room again. 🙂
