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.

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.

MAGNOLIA HALF-FOLD CARD!

Today I have a Magnolia Card for you.  I shared a card recently with the Magnolia Blooms set.  This is another card I made at the time.

The Magnolia flower was coloured with the Petal Pink and the Mossy Meadow Stampin’ Blends.

This is a Half-Fold Card.  The front of the card base is cut in half. I used a strip of the Magnolia Lane Designer Series Paper down the left hand edge of the card base.

There is a smaller panel that is placed off the edge of the front flap with the magnolia image.  It’s simple but adds another dimension to your card.  See the inside below.

I should have coloured the inside leaves.  I forgot about them.

 

I’m really liking this Magnolia Blooms set.  Why?

  • It’s simple to use.
  • It’s easy to colour. The simple lines and shading makes it easy to follow when colouring to get the depth of colour on it.
  • It’s great for a Beginner stamper starting out in stamping but great for the Avid stamper who can step it up with other products they have.
  • It has great sentiments for any occasion.  I love the font too.
  • It’s affordable.  $24 AUD people! How great is that.

So have you got this set?? Really.  It’s one of THE most affordable sets in the catalogue.  You won’t find it in the Annual Catalogue.  It is in the Experience Creativity brochure.

Available to order in my store now -> HERE.

Please use the Host Code: 3JU96AZN

Receive a gift with your order so be sure to not mark it anonymous.

SUNDAY SUITES – TOILE TIDINGS!

Today’s Sunday Suite is the Toile Tidings Suite in the Holiday Catalogue.  Lots of lovely products in this suite and all in the traditional red and green for Christmas.  Let’s check it out.

The Toile Tidings Suite Bundle. One Item code and it makes it easier than picking each item. $252 AUD It seems a lot but look at all you get.

The Toile Christmas Bundle.  I have to say I wasn’t sure about the Cardinal.  It is very popular in the US and perhaps in other parts but we don’t have them in Australia.  They are apparently a very symbolic bird though.  Which is interesting.

There is also another stamp and die bundle.  The Tidings All Around Bundle. I love that wreath.  Isn’t it gorgeous?

Toile Tidings Designer Series Paper in the traditional red and green – Garden Green and Real Red.

In addition to the 12″x 12″ paper there is the Toile Tidings Gift Wrap.  This is 4 sheets in total.  2 Sheets each of 2 designs.  Each sheet is 24″ x 36″ or 61cm x 91cm.  Great for those larger gifts.

I have to say I love these Toile Tidings Glitter Enamel Dots.  So sparkly!

Let’s see some more projects.

Do you like the Toile Tidings Suite?  Do you have Cardinals in your area?  It would be interesting to see.

The Toile Tidings Suite is available now in my store -> HERE.  When ordering please use the Host Code: 3JU96AZN

Receive the Tutorial Bundle free of 12 projects with your qualifying orders.  (Projects not including the Toile Tidings Suite)

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.

SUNDAY SUITES – MAGNOLIA LANE!

It’s Sunday Suites time.  Since I have been talking Magnolias I thought it was good opportunity to talk about the Magnolia Lane Suite.  It has been very popular and I don’t know about you but I have been seeing these magnolias popping up everywhere.

What about those big punched flowers though?? They are made with the Hot Air Balloon Punch.  Clever right!

The Magnolia Lane Suite Bundle gives you a coordinating selection of products with one simple purchase. It includes the stamp set and tool bundle at 10% off plus one each of the other items listed.

In total it is $234.75. You do get a lot in that bundle.  See it in my store -> HERE.

The Magnolia Lane Suite Bundle includes
* Good Morning Magnolia Cling Stamp Set
* Magnolia Memory Dies
* Magnolia 3D Embossing Folder
* Magnolia Lane Designer Series Paper
* Magnolia Lane Large Specialty Memories & More Cards & Envelopes
* Magnolia Lane Memories & More Card Pack
* Magnolia Lane Ribbon Combo Pack
* Magnolia Lane Cork Embellishments
* Stampin’ Blends Combo Pack

You need to have a closer look at the paper though.  The colours in it are Basic Black, Early Espresso, Mossy Meadow, Petal Pink, So Saffron, Whisper White.

What I also really love in this suite is the Magnolia 3D Embossing Folder.  So gorgeous.  $17 AUD


You don’t need to do much more when adding it to a card.

Or you can colour it.  I think this is coloured with the Inkpads and Aquapainter.

I love this effect.  Stamp the flower on Crumb Cake card and colour it with a white pencil or the White ink.  Stunning!

It’s gorgeous using it for little gift boxes too.

Are you in love?  It is so nice.

You can order it now in my store.  Grab the full Suite Bundle with one item code or order just one or 2 individual products.

MINI MOSSY MAGNOLIA CARD!

You have probably seen a lot of Magnolia cards around the internet.  It’s quite a popular one and rightly so.  This Good Morning Magnolia bundle is very gorgeous.  But have you noticed the smaller version – the Magnolia Blooms set?  It is a very gorgeous little sister.  I have been playing with this set a bit recently.

I wanted to show you this Mini card we made last weekend.  I was at a Craft Show last weekend and this was the Make and Take card that everyone got to make that stopped by my stand.  It is a simple card with little stamping but very effective I think.

This mini card is about 10cm x 10cm (3″x 3″).  Each layer is 4mm (1/8″) smaller in size.

Being a quick card I didn’t want people to be colouring the flowers in.  There wasn’t time for that and for beginner’s that can be challenging.  The small magnolia flower was stamped on the Petal Pink card mat in Mossy Meadow twice on the left hand edge.  Reinking the stamp each time before stamping.  The sentiment is stamped in Memento Black ink.

The paper strip is from the Good Morning Magnolia Designer Series Paper Stack.  It was all adhered together and of course – add some bling. 🙂

Simple but sweet.

The Magnolia Blooms set is not found in the Annual Catalogue.  It can be found in the smaller Experience Creativity brochure which is aimed for new stampers.  It’s a great little stamp set and what else is great?? The price.  $24.  How awesome is that!

You can find this set in my store though too.  Find it -> HERE and add it to your collection. Please use the Host Code: 6F6336UW

You won’t be sorry.  It has a lovely simple flower and a smaller bud and the little leaf.  What I also love is the sentiments.  These are such useful sentiments for lots of different occasions.  I hope you grab it.  I will share more with it over the next days and weeks.

Thanks for visiting,

WHY I LOVE BEING A STAMPIN’ UP! DEMONSTRATOR!

I have a little personal post for you today.  Well kind of.  I celebrated 11 years as a Demonstrator last week.  That is just crazy!

It made me think about this journey I have been on.  I shared this with some people on my newsletter list but I thought I would share it with you – because you are all important to me too in this crazy, fun, unpredictable, messy, emotional (yes!) journey I am on.  (I have changed it a little just for you).

So I hope you will indulge me.

I joined Stampin’ Up! in August 2008. This 11 years as a Demonstrator has certainly flown.  I have to say there has been ups and downs along the way but overall I have loved it.

Most of all, I have loved meeting so many people and making friends just like you. Now I have so many friends close by and from around the world.  I wouldn’t have met all these lovely people if it wasn’t for Stampin’ Up!

It’s crazy to think that stamps and ink can bring people close together.

For me I had always set out to make this a business to add to the income for my family and to work it around time with them.  That was such a blessing at the time, and it still is great being so flexible.  Even now my children are adults it’s great being able to work around spending time with them when they are at home.

It has really built my self-confidence.  I struggle talking with people but it has helped me being able to connect with like-minded people and being able to encourage them in their creative endeavours.  For that I am so grateful for.

Whether it is face-to-face or through my blog or other social media I hope that I can encourage each of you to create and to share.  This is what brings a smile to my face and gives me great joy.

But how fun is to play with stamps and paper everyday! Just sayin’ 😉

I will tell you my biggest regret though – is that I didn’t start this journey earlier.  I deliberated for 18 months before I joined although there was some other personal reasons for the delay too.  but how many more people I could have met and to have so much more discount early on.  All the learning and exploring too.  But to finally take the plunge was so exciting.

Apart from celebrating my 11 years I wanted to let you know why I have joined Stampin’ Up! and why I am still here even with the challenges that come with products and supply.  That’s not what it is entirely about.  But have you considered joining Stampin’ Up! and still have reservations??  What are you waiting for??

If you are in Australia you can join in this with me and – get the discount for yourself. (Don’t put it off like I did). Even if you don’t plan to work at it as a business. And don’t feel once you sign up you are “stuck” in it for ever. You can leave anytime.  (And BTW if you are overseas and considering it why not seek out a local demonstrator for you to start enjoying this too).

Even if being part of Stampin’ Up! is not as a business for you, the discount is such a blessing to off-set those stamping purchases.  Maybe more stamping supplies with it … 😉  And meeting all those new friends. Don’t forget that part of it.

There is a great opportunity this month so I wouldn’t delay it any longer.  There is only one week left. Read about it all below.EXTRA, EXTRA!

During July and August there has been an awesome promotion inviting others like yourself to join Stampin’ Up!  I want you to have all this opportunity yourself.

I want you to experience that discount and to have the opportunity to connect with others too.

With this promotion time is running out.  You have less than one week.  Don’t be like me and put it off.  Seriously.  You can’t lose.  Just give it a go.

Stampin’ Up! are giving away so many free products at the moment. (In fact $111 of free products and then an extra $16 voucher!). (This is Australian figures).

Really you need to know about this.

I am sure you have a long Wish List yourself of Stampin’ Up! products.  Is it more than $169? Why pay more than $169 right!!

Come and join the Stampin’ Up! family. Come and join the JEN’s INK team and get so many extra products PLUS an extra $16 voucher to use in September.

***In total you are getting $127 of free products. Seriously! are you going to knock that back??

When you join the Stampin’ Up! family you are not just getting LOTS of extra free products.

Just like I have already mentioned. You make so many great new friends,  You are inspired by amazing projects in the quarterly Demonstrator magazine, you get to travel to different events throughout the year if you like to, and even get free products along the way… And, you can leave at any time.

Are you up for it??

You can find out more ->HERE.

Or if you have your $280 shopping list ready to go you can join my JEN’s INK team you can head directly -> HERE now.  ‘Click on Join The Fun’

Thanks for sticking with me.  I can’t wait to share more with you in this fun, inky journey.

Have a great day,

Jenny

SUNDAY SUITE – COME SAIL AWAY!

This weekend it’s all about the Sailing Home Bundle in my classes and on my blog here.  So I think it’s a good time to have a closer look at the full Come Sail Away Suite for Sunday Suites today.

This is a really great suite for those hard-to-make men’s cards.  Let’s face it.  We all struggle with them.  While it might be boats and sailing there are some other fun elements.  Let’s have a look.

You can make some of the samples above and lots more with any or all of the Suite products below.

The Come Sail Away Suite can be ordered with just one item code making shopping so much easier. #152175  $165.25 AUD

or you can pick just one or 2 of the items.

I wanted to show you a couple of the products in closer detail.

The Memories and More Card pack features maritime images.  It has 50 double-sized cards and they come in 2 different sizes. 3″ x 4″ (7.6 x 10.2 cm) and 4″ x 6″ (10.2 x 15.2 cm) sizes.  I love the single-sided laser-cut specialty cards.  See them below.

There is also some sticker sheets included too.  Don’t just think of the these card packs for scrapbooking.  They are great for cards as well.

You have to check out the Come Sail Away Designer Series Paper. 

The prints show really don’t show it justice to be honest.  There are some great nautical prints.  Check the video below the paper image.

Now you need to see this High Seas 3D Embossing Folder closer.  It is like waves.  Great with this bundle.  Available now for $17 AUD #149577 (You can order it in store in the link below)

You get a really good idea of this embossing folder in the Soft Suede sample below.  And by the way the card above that uses one of the diecut cards from the Memories and More pack.

What do you think of this bundle.  I can tell you everyone has loved using them in class this weekend.  … And they may have added it to their orders. 🙂

You can grab the Come Sail Away Suite with just one item code or grab one or two items.  Shop in my store now -> HERE.
