INCOLOR FEATHERS WITH TASTEFUL TOUCHES!

We have talked about the new Stampin’ Up! Incolors for 2020 and you have probably seen them a little around your travels on the internet.

This card I am sharing today uses the 5 new colours together.

I have used the feather from the Tasteful Touches stamp set and stamped them on each In color card in Basic Gray. Then they were diecut with one of the rectangle dies in the Stitched Rectangles.  Rather than adhere them in a straight line I thought it would be fun to stagger them on the card.

The sentiment is from the Itty Bitty Greetings set.

A fun little card perhaps?? 🙂

Have a great week,

Jenny

WEDNESDAY’S WOW! #101- CREATING DEPTH WITH COLOURED IMAGES!

Wednesday’s WOW #101.  Today I wanted to show you a little tip with colouring your images and how to create depth.

Firstly though.  Last Wednesday I had a little Giveaway.  Congratulations to Lynne C for winning the Little Ladybug Stamp set.  I will be in touch with you soon.

Back to our WOW!

I recently created this card with the retiring Accented Blooms set.  I wanted to give this a little ink up one more time before it retires.  It’s been a while since I have played with it.

I coloured it with the Stampin’ Blends.  I cut the white card with the Stitched Rectangles Dies But I added a little “new” with the Ornate Layers Dies by cutting the Calypso Coral card mat.

But this is what I wanted to show you.  You can give the appearance of depth to your image in a very simple way. Take a closer look below.

When I finished colouring I outlined the image with a lighter colour Stampin’ Blends.  This one I used the Light Pool Party.  I have used Light Smoky Slate at times too and even Petal Pink.  It just depends on the look you want.

I hope you try that trick next time you colour your images.

Thanks for visiting me.

Have an awesome day wherever you are.

WEDNESDAY’S WOW! #99 – ORNATE LAYERS DIES + STITCHED RECTANGLES DIES!

Wednesday’s WOW! #99 (Can you believe we are that far!).  Today I wanted to show a little discovery I have made.  Maybe you have noticed already.  I have been using the new Ornate Layers Dies a lot lately and I discovered that some of the Stitched Rectangles Dies fit with these new Ornate Layers Dies.

Check them out.

There are 3 different rectangles that fit the Ornate Layers Dies.  How cool is that! You can layer them up.  The stitching that you would get on the white card mats from the Stitched Rectangles Dies will give you that extra texture for your cards.

So if you have got the Stitched Rectangles Dies already be sure to pull them out when you get the Ornate Layers Dies and layer them up.

Have fun creating with them.

Next WOW! is our BIG #100.  I might just have to have a Giveaway for this milestone.

What would you like to see me show you? Drop me a comment to let me know.

See you again soon,

Jenny

POWER OF HOPE SWAP CARD!

I can now share you my card I created for our recent Team Shoebox Swap.  I have shared the other cards recently.  This card was also the card I created for a group swap I was in.

I have used the Power of Hope stamp set and the 3D Stone Embossing Folder.

The black card was embossed with the embossing folder and you can’t tell in the photo but I swiped over the Versamark inkpad over the raised embossed parts on the card and it gave a little shine.

The Petal Pink card was stamped with the tree from the Power of Hope stamp set and the “Dots” were from the Beauty Abounds set.

The lady she was stamped in Memento and coloured with the Rich Razzleberry, Petal Pink and Black Stampin’ Blends.  The white card was cut with the largest die from the Stitched So Sweetly dies.  The sentiment was a bit bare just in white so I also cut a small piece of Gold Foil both diecut with the small rectangle from Stitched Rectangles Dies.  I finished the card off with a little of the Petal Pink Metallic Edged ribbon.

Hope you like it.  I have made this card quite a few times now.

This Power of Hope set is available Free as a Bundle with the Embossing Folder for Sale-A-Bration with orders over $180 AUD.  I hope you be sure to get your set before the end of March.  I think it’s a beautiful set and just a little different to others we have.

Have a great day,

Jenny

BEST DRESSED – LIPSTICK STREAK!

Another card for you today with the Best Dressed Suite.  This was another project I shared at Onstage last November with this suite.

The Dressed To Impress stamp set has some cute images and some really fun “wash” type images.  These washes are great to add colour to the cute images as an alternative to colouring them with the inks or the Stampin’ Blends, or you can use them as background stamping.

The stamp set is below so you get an idea.

I wanted to show a different way of using one of the longer “wash” streaks.  As you can see in the card below, use it as a nice long lipstick steak.  Make it any colour you like, BUT – Be as Bold As Your Lipstick. 🙂

For this card a piece of the Best Dressed Designer Series Paper was cut with a large Stitched Rectangles Dies and then one was cut on white card with a smaller of the rectangles.

On the Lovely Lipstick base card stamp some of the smaller flowers in the top left corner and the bottom right corner with Lovely Lipstick ink to give just a subtle background stamping.

On the white card stamp the “streak” across the bottom of the white card. I used Lovely Lipstick. Stamp your lipstick at an angle.  This one was coloured with the Smoky Slate Stampin’ Blends on the base of the lipstick.  The lipstick colour was stamped with the small circular “wash”.

Stamp the sentiment in Memento black and punch that out.  Add a few loops of the Silver Thread behind it before raising it up off the card.  Of course add some bling with the Rhinestones to finish.

Now go and streak that lipstick. 🙂

You can see this set and buy in store now -> HERE.

Don’t forget with every order with me you receive a Tutorial Bundle of 12 different projects as a little Thank you.  Plus I send out a little card and small gift to say Thanks so be sure to not mark it anonymous when you order. AND with orders over $90 you receive your choice of Free Sale-A-Bration set.  

Thanks for visiting me today.  Have a great weekend,

SOME SPECIAL CUSTOMER THANK YOU CARDS!

I can show you these cards now.  Recently I made these Thank You cards for a special group of customers.  This group has been with me for 10 years now supporting me, encouraging me and attending my events.  I wanted to mark the special occasion.

I made a couple of different variations but using similar products.

Paper: Perennial Essence Designer Series Paper,

Card: Whisper White, Flirty Flamingo, Petal Pink, Calypso Coral, Balmy Blue.

Stamps: Butterfly Gala, Magnolia Blooms.

Inks: Balmy Blue, Granny Apple Green, Flirty Flamingo, Daffodil Delight,

Dies: Stitched Rectangles Dies, Stitched Nested Dies.

Other: Butterfly Duet Punch, Adhesive Rhinestones, Adhesive Pearls.

I wanted to tell you how I created the butterflies.  I stamped the butterflies from the Butterfly Gala stamp set on white card.  Before I punched them out I sponged over them.  Firstly with a colour in the centre and then around the outside with another colour.  The butterflies were all different colours. I punched them out with the Butterfly Duet Punch. To add some highlights I sponged around the edge of the butterfly with the colour I used on the outer edges.

I really appreciate these lovely group of ladies.  They changed the direction of my business and continue to support me.  They have become lovely friends.

Now let me just take this opportunity to thank each and everyone of you.  Thanks for all your support, your comments when you can, your pinning and Thanks for visiting my corner of Blog land.  It’s because of you I post often hoping to inspire you.  I hope I do that.  Thanks for your support.

I’m looking forward to a new year of creating and sharing.

Happy Stamping,

Jenny

CHRISTMASTIME IS HERE SWAPS!

Christmas is fast approaching.  I have just time to show you these 2 cards I received for swaps recently.  These are using the Christmastime is Here suite. 

This first card was created by Peta one of my team members.  I received this as a swap for Onstage in early November but hadn’t shared it with you yet.  The copper makes it very classy.  She used the Stitched Rectangles Dies to create the card mats for the gorgeous array of flowers.

This next one is just a mini card.  It is about 7.5cm x 5cm (3″ x 2″) – roughly anyway.   The flowers are cut from the gorgeous Christmastime is Here specialty Designer Series Paper.  This one was a swap from my upline Vanessa. She added a little stamping too.

This Christmastime is Here Suite of products are still available in my store -> HERE.  Just because Christmas is over don’t think you can’t use them.  They are beautiful, elegant products for a birthday or wedding.

If ordering online please use the Host Code: REKK2FW4

Wishing you all a wonderful Christmas time however you spend it.  I hope it is filled with love and special people around you.  For some I know Christmas can be a difficult time.  Know that you are loved and I pray that God’s grace and strength will fill you at this time.

Much love to you.

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.
