WEDNESDAY’S WOW! #52 – LOVELY LATTICE 3 WAYS!

Wednesday’s WOW! #52.  Today I thought we would take a look at this gorgeous stamp, the Lovely Lattice.  This is a Sale-A-Bration choice.  It’s such a beautiful image and so nice to colour but also as I show, you can leave it white.  I know I am not great at colouring in so I like that idea.

Isn’t this pretty?  I have a video below so you can have a closer look.  And had you noticed the little scallop type line image.  I had completely missed this stamp and it would really add extra detail to your cards.  Don’t forget the little single flower image too.  See the video below.

 

Let’s have a closer look at the cards.

This one above is so pretty coloured with the Stampin’ Blends.  You don’t need too much more with it.  The sentiment is from Healing Hugs from the Annual Catalogue. And,look at the white card – Stitched Rectangle Dies. 🙂

You know what I like about this card above?  I like that it isn’t coloured and looks so striking in white against the green.  On this one the flowers are fussy cut.  The diecut background and sentiment shape are from the Rose Trellis Thinlits Dies in the Occasions Catalogue.

This card above is so pretty coloured in Grapefruit Grove. See, the Scallop line stamp makes a nice background.  The sentiment is from the Well Written Framelits Dies and the Well Said stamp set.

The Lovely Lattice is a free choice for Sale-A-Bration with orders over $90.  This set could be yours. 🙂

Shop in my store now -> HERE.  It’s shipped directly to you anywhere in Australia. Once you have done your order select your Sale-A-Bration set.  These orders will also receive a Tutorial Bundle for 10 different projects FREE!

Thank you for your order.  Please be sure not to mark it anonymous as I can’t send your Thank You card to you.

WEDNESDAY’S WOW! #49 – INTO THE WOODS WITH THE WINTER WOODS BUNDLE!

Today for episode #49 on Wednesday’s WOW! I have a really cool bundle to show you. The Winter Woods Bundle.  Have you noticed it? You can find it on page 27 of the Holiday Catalogue.

Why am I showing you this today?  Well a few of reasons.

  • It’s a very versatile set that you could use for other occasions,  Think of those difficult Masculine cards.  You can also use it for a number of different techniques too.  So while it might be late for the Christmas cards it is great that you can use it for other times throughout the year.
  • You can layer up the tree dies to make some cool effect trees.  Add a few of those trees on the card and you wouldn’t need much more on it.
  • You can use it with other current stamp sets from the Annual Catalogue.  Just another great “co-ordination” on Stampin’ Up!’s part.
  • OK, I will be honest I haven’t got it yet but I really think I must add it because if I get it now then I can save 10% by getting the bundle.  Although the stamps and dies will carryover they won’t be at bundle price.

Check the Winter Woods Bundle in the short video below.  

 

As you saw in the video, the Winter Woods stamp set is a great stamp set with the different trees and the tree trunks.  That sentiment is so lovely.  Don’t think of that sentiment just for Christmas.  Mask off some of the words and make it a lovely “Thinking of You” card.  There are a few different tree dies too in the In The Woods Framelits and they layer together so well don’t you think.

This is available in Wood Mount and Clear Mount.  Clear is $87.25 AUS.  Wood mount is available there too. You can grab it in my store now -> HERE and save 10%.  Don’t forget to use the Host Code: BZ6KB7SU

Do you want some inspiration?  Head to my Winter Woods Pinterest board -> HERE. 

Thanks for visiting me today.

See you again soon,

Jenny

WEDNESDAY’S WOW! #46 – CHECKING OUT MY ONSTAGE SWAPS!

Something different for you for Wednesday’s WOW! today for #46.  Since I have just returned from Onstage in Melbourne I thought you might like to see the swaps I received.  I could show you photos – and I will but I have a video for you as sometimes you can see them a little better and especially see what the 3D ones are actually like.

So here is the video below.  Further down I have the still photos for you if you want to PIN them.

Such a selection. Aren’t they just lovely?? Thank you everyone who swapped with me.  I hope these give you some inspiration for your projects.

I will show you the swap card that I created shortly.

Thanks for visiting,

SNOWFLAKE SHOWCASE WEEK – DAY 3 – AND A VIDEO FOR WEDNESDAY’S WOW!

Day 3 of our Snowflake Showcase Week.  Half-way through.  Today’s card is simple really but I think effective – and they can turn out differently each time.

The background for this card is a Watercolour wash.  I have used Bermuda Bay and of course the Snow is Glistening stamp set and Snowfall Thinlits.

The large snowflake is cut from the White Velvet Paper. Have I told you how soft and furry it is?  So nice and adds such a lovely texture to your projects.  I have also used the Silver Glimmer Paper and the tiny snowflake is from the White Velvet Paper too.

Do you want to see how I have done the Watercolour Wash background?  Since it is a Wednesday and time for Wednesday’s WOW! #45 I thought I would combine the two.  How about that. 🙂

You can see the video below. (NB: If you receive the blog updates by email and the video hasn’t shown then click on the title at the top to go to the blog post and watch it there). 

I am just starting out more with videos.  They are not easy let me say … 🙂 I would love to know your thoughts and if you have any suggestions to improve them, please drop a comment and let me know.

How are you liking the Snowflake Showcase products?  Have you bought any yet?

Just a reminder what these products are as you couldn’t see them well in the video.

If you are in Australia you can order these now from me.  Remember these are only available in November AND only while supplies last, so don’t delay with them.

Order in store -> HERE.  Please use the Host Code: KGQKCBA4

OR email me to arrange an order.

Thanks for watching.  Now go and try that wash technique.

WEDNESDAY’S WOW! #44 – IT’S SNOWING!

It’s Wednesday YAY! I have an exciting new product suite to share with you today.  The Snowflake Showcase begins tomorrow.  I know I am a day early BUT since it’s time for some WOW! For Wednesday’s WOW! #44 I thought it would be a good time to stop by and show you the products and see the video.  These are gorgeous products.  I know I have mentioned them already but you will love them.  (Be sure to stop by for my Snowflake Showcase week coming soon here).

What do you think? Gorgeous or what??  I wish you could feel that Velvet Paper if you haven’t seen it already.  So soft and furry!

Snow is Glistening stamp set

Happiness Surrounds stamp set

Snowfall Thinlits.

I have been creating with these a lot and I will share them with you soon but here is one of the cards Stampin’ Up! have created.

You will see lots of snow around in November with these gorgeous products.  I will share some more projects myself soon too.  You can order these from tomorrow in my store so watch for details.

WEDNESDAY’S WOW! #43 – ONE STAMP, ONE DIE = 16 TAGS!

How can you make 16 tags from One Stamp and One Die?? I have to say this intrigued me.  For Wednesday’s WOW! #43 this week I wanted to check out this Tags and Tidings Bundle and see how it worked.  I found the video from Stampin’ Up! to share with you.  Maybe you are intrigued by it yourself??  The stamps are very small so how can you use them on your projects? How can you line the stamps up so easily with the die so they cut?  So many questions.  So if you are the same check out the video below and don’t miss out on the end to see their cute projects.

Here are some of the Stampin’ Up! projects.  So these might be small but they are cute.  I like even how the background is stamped on the card with them.  I had considered cutting the stamps up as I thought it might be easier. (SHAME ON ME).  I think I will leave it as one stamp.  Much easier to use and great for that background.

What do you think now?  Have you got this bundle? I would love to see your projects with it.

You can see it in my store -> HERE now.  $71 for the bundle.

Thanks for checking this out with me today.  Have a wonderful Wednesday.

WEDNESDAY’S WOW! #42 – QUICK CHRISTMAS CARDS WITH TIMELESS TIDINGS KIT!

Last weekend at my World Cardmaking Day class we focused on making easy, quick cards by using Kits.  There are so many lovely Stampin’ Up! kits available.  One of them we focused on was the gorgeous Timeless Tidings kit.  Everyone loved the beautiful watercoloured look to the cards and and they were very easy to put together.  If you haven’t noticed them they are on page 33 of the Holiday Catalogue or you can see them below.

For Wednesday’s WOW #42 I thought we would have a close look at this kit. I have the video below to see them and you can see how easy it is to put them together.

What do you think?  Aren’t they gorgeous?  The fun thing with kits too is that you don’t have to make them exactly as they are.  You can change them around little.  Just a note on them,  we found that when we peeled off some of the gold strips and trim not all of them came out clean so you need to use a paper piercer or similar to pick out the little “bits” left behind.  That is probably the longest part to putting the cards together.

**Grab your Timeless Tidings Kit in my store now -> HERE  $35 AUS.  (Australian residents only).  Please use the Host Code: SGXSEFMS

**You might want to grab the Timeless Tidings stamp set too. -> HERE  $35 Clear mount or $49 Wood mount.

Of course, you can contact me directly to order too.

WEDNESDAY’S WOW! #29 – EMBOSSING MATS!

Today for Wednesday’s WOW! I have an exciting new product to show you.  I don’t know if you have noticed these in the catalogue.  I know I missed them the first time (or even the fifth time!) I went through the Catalogue.  This is the Big Shot Embossing Mats.  You can see them on p221.  Have you noticed them?

They consist of 2 different Silicone mats and an impressions mat.  These mats will enable you to emboss with your cutting dies to create a totally different effect on your cards.  I will let the video below show you how to work them. If you receive this post via email and don’t see the video, head to my blog directly by clicking on the post title above and see the video there.

What a great effect it can give. What do you think?  Think of all your current dies that would work well with this???

I had a go with some of my dies.  I still have the older style Embossing Mat from a few years ago.  I used some acetate instead of the silicone mat. See how they turned out.

I used the Detailed Dragonfly Thinlits and the Detailed Floral Thinlits.  

      

Here are the layers for the Big Shot again to emboss with your dies –

Big Shot Platform

Cutting Plate

Die (facing up)

Cardstock

Silicone Mat

Impressions Mat

——

You can find the Embossing Mats in store now -> HERE.  $26 AUS.  They are certainly a worthwhile investment and will really extend the use of your current dies.  Grab them now.  Please use the HOST CODE: PUB9TYMG

WEDNESDAY’S! WOW # 27 – THE POPULAR ROOTED IN NATURE BUNDLE!

With so many wonderful new products in this catalogue I thought I would focus today for Wednesday’s WOW! on a very popular bundle.  This is the Rooted In Nature bundle.  Have you seen it yet?  I think it is one that will rival the long lasting Lovely As A Tree stamp set.

The stamp set has a number of different trees and leaves and it also has some lovely sentiments.  You get 16 stamps all up.  The matching dies cut out most of the trees and leaves.  In addition there are a couple of leaf dies that will emboss the leaves.  Here is the bundle below.

Here are a couple of projects made by Stampin’ Up! artists using this bundle.   You can see the diversity of projects with it.  Not just for the masculine cards but suitable for anyone.  I think this will be great for Christmas cards too.  What do you reckon??

Do you want to see it in action?  Check the video below.  (If you receive these updates by email be sure to go directly to the blog post by clicking on the blog title above so that you will be sure to see it).

This bundle is available now in store -> HERE.  Please use the Host Code:  FRS6ZZ6G ($126.75 clear mount – you get a lot in this bundle).

OR you can contact me directly to order.  Australian residents only.

Thanks for stopping by,

SEE THE SHARE WHAT YOU LOVE UP CLOSE FOR WEDNESDAY’S WOW! #24!

I told you about the gorgeous Share What You Love Suite yesterday.  You saw photos but that really doesn’t show the shine in these products.  So today for Wednesday’s WOW! #24 I have a video for you from Stampin’ Up!  Be sure to catch that shimmer in the paper and those doilies.  They are really just stunning!

After you catch the video.  Head back to yesterday’s post so you can see all the contents again in each bundle.  And there is the ordering information there too with a bonus tutorial for 2 cards if you order any of these bundles this month.  So sit back and watch for that shimmer.

 

Before you head off I just wanted to show you another card with this gorgeous suite.  This card is one of the cards we made at Onstage early last month.

Thanks for visiting today.  I will be back again soon,

Jenny
