BIRD BALLAD WEEK DAY 4 – CATALOGUE KICK OFF MAKE AND TAKE!

Bird Ballad Week Day 4.  Have you liked the projects so far?

A few weeks ago I had my Catalogue Kick-Off event for everyone to come and see the new catalogue and have fun creating.  This was one of the cards that everyone got to make using the Bird Ballad Suite.

I have CASED this card from Angie’s blog -> HERE. I loved the simpleness of it yet it is still elegant.  Everyone who came to my Kick-Off loved the card too.

I used the Stitched Nested Labels Dies and the gorgeous Bird Ballad Designer Series Paper.  The birds were coloured with the Petal Pink Stampin’ Blends.  I had never used Petal Pink until a few weeks ago.  Now I am really starting to love it – possibly.  They certainly work nicely with this suite.

You can grab the Bird Ballad Bundle in my store now -> HERE.  Please use the Host Code: H2BBRFTE

I really love those Stitched Nested Labels Dies.  You won’t be sorry you bought those. You can buy them as the bundle or individually.

Thanks for visiting today.  Have a great day/night wherever you may be visiting me from.

WEDNESDAY’S WOW! #68 – FAREWELL LOVELY AS A TREE!

Today is a special Wednesday’s WOW!

Today we take a moment to remember the timeless Lovely As A Tree set.  It is so sad that this set is leaving us.  Each year we scour the catalogue to see if it has made it in.  This year though I think we were all saddened to see that it’s time had finally come. 

This set started in the Catalogue in the US back in 2001.  I believe it was designed by Shelli Gardner’s sister who started Stampin’ Up! with Shelli.  This set has been like a much loved family member so it is a sad occasion.  I bought this set in my first Demonstrator order after I joined back in 2008. This set has had so much use and I think every Christmas it gets pulled out.  It is such a classic stamp set.

So today for Wednesday’s WOW! #68 we look back at some of my projects with this stamp set.  I am sad that I couldn’t find photos of some cards I had made but let’s have a look back at these projects I have kept. I have to say it is also a look back at my stamping style too.  Perhaps that is a little embarrassing but … anyway. Enjoy the nostalgic journey.  Apologies in advance for lots of photos.

May 2011 – See the original Post -> HERE.

I don’t know what I was thinking with that button.

Even the inside of the card was stamped with the trees.

From a Stamp A Stack Christmas 2011 with another classic stamp Dasher.  What a great combination these stamps were.  See the original post -> HERE.

These cards were some I received for Christmas 2013.  It included a couple of cards using the Lovely As A Tree set.  I like how the tree is used on it’s side to give the effect of branches.  Very cute.

This Tunnel card was a favourite at a Christmas Card class in 2013.  You can see that post -> HERE and I included a Tutorial how to make the Tunnel card there too in that blog post.  Go and check it out.

This one below was a real WOW! at class back in 2011.  Everyone loved this card. This was a Sparkly Christmas card. You can see it in this post -> HERE and I have a tutorial how to make it in that post. You can use this technique with any stamp set.

Now this next card we actually made at a team meeting like nearly 2 years ago.  I didn’t quite finish it at the time.  So I put it aside on my desk to finish.  All it needed was to be stuck together and a sentiment added.  Well I actually finished it a month ago.  Or actually my daughter finished it for me.

On this card I masked a section of the card and sponged in the section.  Then with the group of trees I heat embossed in Silver Embossing Powder.

This card below was the most recent one from last Christmas.  I realised I hadn’t shared this card with you before. We used the Copper Shimmer Paint and swiped it over the card mat that had been embossed with the Tin Tile Embossing Folder.

Then for more shine we added the Shimmer Paint directly to the tree stamp and also on to the sentiment stamp.  To do this use the Dauber and pick some Shimmer Paint from inside the lid of the Shimmer Paint bottle then lightly dauber over the stamp.  Then stamp it on your card.  Against the Merry Merlot colour it is quite classy.

So sadly the Lovely As A Tree stamp set has sold out now.  I hope you managed to get hold of one.

A new replacement might just be the Rooted in Nature stamp set.  Have you added that one yet to your collection? This set has a number of stamps AND dies.  I think this will be a good alternative.  Hopefully I will get to play more with that one again soon.

Thanks everyone for your patience as we wander down memory lane.

Farewell Lovely As A Tree.  You have been a reliable stamp set for all those special projects and festive occasions. You will be missed.  But I won’t be able to part with you just yet.  Enjoy your retirement.

Jenny

MELON MAMBO ROSY!

I have some more Everything is Rosy cards for you today.  I have been smashing them out lately.  They are all such gorgeous products and it really doesn’t take much to put a card together.  Such pretty papers … 🙂

These diecut labels make it very easy – and fancy.  Simply stamp on the sentiment and you are good to go.  Perhaps the longest part is diecutting the detailed border trim but a couple of runs through your machine and the card pops out of the die really easily.

It is hard to catch the shine in the paper with the embossed Rose Gold details.  Just gorgeous though.

Thanks for looking.  Have an awesome week. I will be back soon with more.

THE EVERYTHING IS ROSY MEDLEY WITH ROSE GOLD STREAKS!

I have just received the Everything is Rosy suite of products.  Let me tell you it is more gorgeous in real life.  I shared the video unveiling it on my Facebook page the other day but maybe you would like to see it here.

This was my first play with it.  I have to say it is so easy to put cards together with all these products.  Stamp a few images or you can use the diecut images in the set and cut some of that gorgeous paper.  Yes cut it – don’t just stroke it and then store it away. 😉

For this card below I stamped the leaves and a flower and diecut them out with the lovely dies. I added one of the Rose Gold embellishments for the centre of the flower. They are sticky back so you just peel it off the sheet and stick it on.  It has a clear coating on the top so you need to peel that off too. The Thank You was stamped in the diecut banners that is included in the set.

Just to remind  you what you get in this bundle of products.  There is a lot!  Another demonstrator added it up and there was over $180 in value.  There is nothing like this paper.  Have I said that already?? 🙂

Purchase in my store now -> HERE. (Australian residents only). Please use the Host Code: HQX47XHJ

Once you place your order I will email you a Tutorial Bundle of 12 exclusive projects (these are not using the Everything is Rosy Medley) but just as a Thank You for your order.

You will also receive a roll of Rose Gold Metallic Thread Free which will work beautifully with this medley of products.

Thanks for your order and Thanks for stopping by,

Have a great day,

WEDNESDAY’S WOW! #67 – USE THE LINE!

Wednesday’s come around quickly.  I have another Wednesday’s WOW! for you.  It was a recent revelation to me.  (OK, I am slow!).  This little tip might be a revelation to you too.  Although you are probably more cleverer than me. 😉

Wednesday’s WOW! #67 – Use the line on your Embossing Folder to keep your card straight.

Let me show you.

That black line on the Embossing Folder is not just a detail on the folder to go with the Logo. 🙂 It serves a purpose.  Use that line as a guide to see that your card is straight in the Embossing Folder.  The card might be longer than the line but you can still use that to see that the edge of the card is parallel with it.  These lines are on the more recent folders.

TIP: If you have some older folders that don’t have the line.  Draw one in with a ruler and black permanent marker.

On another note – when using folders you don’t want to position your card right up in to the top of the folder on the fold line.  You will get an edge on your card when you emboss it as the pattern doesn’t quite go right up to the top.

Hope that is helpful, or just confirming what you already knew.

Have a great day,

Jenny

Here are some photos of the cards so you can save them for later reference.

Birds and Sentiments
