WEDNESDAY’S WOW! #55 – TIPS WITH THE FLORENTINE FILIGREE BUNDLE!

For Wednesday’s WOW! #55 today I thought I would look at the Florentine Filigree Bundle in the 2019 Occasions Catalogue.  I have been fascinated with it every time I see it in the catalogue.

The Florentine Filigree Thinlits die is quite fancy and the Florentine Filigree stamp set has a number of different medallion style stamps.

When I looked at the samples though I was quite fascinated with them.  On the one on the left those flourish style images were stamped in the little gaps in the diecut .  How can you get them so lined up and so neat?

The smaller card on the right looked like it had Texture Paste used with the diecut.

I came across a video with some great tips and it shows you how to easily create these cards.  I thought you might like to see the video.

Here are you are below.

What do you think? Are you going to add this bundle to your wish list now? It’s a gorgeous one isn’t it.

You can shop for this in my store now -> HERE. Please use the Host Code: Q6XB6QR6  It is $69.25 AUS

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,

WEDNESDAY’S WOW! #48 – WAYS WITH THE TIN TILE EMBOSSING FOLDER!

I have been using the Tin Tile Embossing Folder a lot lately.  This Embossing Folder is so popular every time I use it in class too.  Everyone loves it.  You don’t have to just run it through the Big Shot with  a piece of card in the folder, Why not try some other cool ways to use it.

I found this video from Stampin’ Up! with a great tip for getting the best impression on your card but also some other fun ways to take your embossed card that extra step. So today for Wednesday’s WOW! #48 we are looking at ways you can use the Tin Tile Embossing Folder.  I have a card below that I had actually used this idea on it before I even saw this video so be sure to look below.

I have to say I have yet to try embossing the Foil Sheets but don’t they look just gorgeous.  (adding to my list to do …)  And they looked so spectacular lightly sanding them and inking over them in parts as it showed in the video.

I like the card inked too after it has been embossed with the folder, but sponging over it with the Shimmer Paint does take the card to the next level.  I shared that video a few weeks ago of how to do that.   You can see that video -> HERE.

I will share the shimmered card piece again for you here below.

Using the idea of adding the Shimmer Paint to your embossed card we used that on one of our cards for the Shimmer Class last week.  Everyone just loved this too and we dragged out the good and faithful set Lovely As A Tree.  It’s been a while since we have used this set but it never gets dated.  It lends itself to so many occasions and techniques. NOTE: If you don’t have this set yet do yourself a favour and grab it.  You can order it in my store now -> HERE.

Here is the card we made.  Using the Copper Shimmer Paint we lightly daubered over the embossed card in places to add some shine.  Just a note too.  For the tree we daubered over some Copper Shimmer directly on the stamp.  We also did that with the Sentiment which is from the Host Set Hung With Care.

So now you have some important items you need to be sure to get:

Tin Tile Embossing Folder, Shimmer Paint, Lovely As A Tree.  Head to me store now to grab them. (link above)

Have fun with it.  Thanks for visiting me.

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.

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!

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 #37 – COLOURING WITH THE STAMPIN’ BLENDS!

Today’s Wednesday’s WOW! #37 we are looking at some tips with colouring with the Stampin’ Blends.  I realise I talk a lot about colouring, and sharing videos and tips on colouring.  I hope you are not sick of this.  I think it is good considering there are so many stamp sets in the Catalogue that require colouring.  Plus, I think personally I need to get all the help I can with colouring because I am not great at it and I am always searching out for help. 🙂

I discovered you can create a great watercolour wash effect using the Stampin’ Blends shown in the card below.  I love the effect of the contrasting colours.  The images really “POP” when you heat emboss the image with white Embossing Powder after you colour the card.  This card uses the set You’re Inspiring but you could use any images.

Check out how to create this background effect in the video below but also in this video you can see how you can blend different coloured Stampin’ Blends together when colouring images.

 

What do you think? Why don’t you give this effect a try.  I think I will have to give it a try for sure.

Thanks for stopping by,

Jenny

WEDNESDAY’S WOW! #36 – WATERCOLOUR LIFTING!

I just discovered a fun new technique and I thought I would share it with you for this Wednesday’s WOW! Can you believe we are up to #36??  There are so many exciting techniques and projects to share with you each week.

This week I wanted to share with you the Watercolour Lift Technique. 

Here is a card from Stampin’ Up! to show you the technique. How pretty is it?

Basically, it is washing your Shimmer White cardstock with a wash of ink using the Aquapainter.  Let it dry. Then stamp your images in Versamark over the area.  Solid images work better.  Then clear emboss them.  After that, wash over the card with a clean Aquapainter to lift some of the ink.  It lightens it revealing the images.  How cool!

I have a video to show you how it is done.

What do you think?  Now I am going to have to go off and try this ASAP.  Share your samples with me too I would love to see them.

Thanks for visiting me today for another episode of Wednesday’s WOW!
