Sneak Peek No. 6 - Frosted Medallions



It's not my first play with this gorgeous set of stamps that features this beautiful Medallion stamp!  But today I've given it the copper embossing treatment on a Dapper Denim background and I think it came up pretty awesome!  Very happy with this simple card.

One Wild Ride - Great for "blokey" cards - Father's Day, birthdays or for any man anytime!




This week one of the gorgeous girls in my team of demonstrators sent out a cry for help.... their school had an urgent need for 60 Father's Day cards on their school stall.  Could we help??  I am so proud of my team.... several of the girls jumped straight in to help... and we got the 60 cards she needed for the stall plus MORE!

I delivered my 10 cards today, and I thought you'd like to see them. They were made with a combination of new and retired products.  The stamps are new/current, but some of the paper was retired out of recent catalogues. Its always good to find a use for retired product!

Here are the current products I used.... if you wish to purchase them for yourself please click on the item you want to be taken to the ONLINE STORE.

Sneak Peek No. 4 from the 2016 Holiday Catalogue - Petals and Paisleys



Today is brought to you by another Sneak Peek from the upcoming 2016 Holiday catalogue!  This card features the Petals and Paisleys suite of products.  In particular I used the "Paisleys and Posies" stamp set combined with the matching Paisley Framelit dies.  The background paper is the beautiful "Petals and Paisleys" Speciality Designer series paper.... I used the Rich Razzleberry paper and cardstock, with a little Sweet Sugar Plum cardstock.  And the whole thing was finished off with a Copper touch.... introducing the new Copper Foil - perfect for cutting these beautiful shapes.  The sentiment is heat embossed with Copper embossing powder.

Don't these colours combine beautifully? It has a really rich feel to it!

Keep checking back for more sneak peeks ahead of the catalogue release on September 1st!  And if you would like to come along to the Catalogue Launch on the 10th September, you will get to play with these lovely products yourself!  Click HERE for more details!

Today I've used my Fox builder punch to create this happy little kitty,  The background is a bit of a sneak peek... I used the new Seasonal Decorative Masks to create it.  (I used Delightful Dijon ink with my sponge brayer over the mask).  This card seriously took just a few minutes to create!

2016 Holiday catalogue Sneak Peek No. 2.... Star of Light Bundle in Vellum and Silver


Today I am "sneak peeking" another card featuring new Catalog product!  Our newest Holiday catalogue will be released on the 1st September, and it is jam packed full of gorgeous sparkly products! I have some early favourites of course, and one of them is this "Star of Light" stampset and framelit bundle. Already I can see that they are going to be hugely popular!  There are some lovely Christmas sentiments in the set (always popular) and the framelits have an awesome mix of solid and intricate shapes.  I used 4 of them to create these two stars.  The larger stars behind in silver are two different solid star shapes, and the intricate designs on top are cut from Dazzling Diamonds glimmer with two different detailed dies. There are quite a few that I didn't use... so I'll have to show you those another time.

The sparkly tail of the star is another stamp from the set and I stamped it in Versamark and heat embossed it with Silver embossing powder.  Altogether it is a pretty simple card, but I think that its quite elegant, and I love the vellum with the smoky slate card base.

I hope you enjoy this card today... stay tune and check back right here for more. Or if you would like to see even more of my creations and musings, hop on over to my Facebook Business page and hit the "Like" button.  There's always something going on with Stampin'Up!

Holiday Catalogue 2016: First Sneak Peek!



Looking for a quick and simple card for your Christmas cards this year? Well, this could be it!  The new Holiday catalogue is heading your way on the 1st September, and I cant wait to show it to you!

Today I had my first play with just a few of the new products..... and its ALL GORGEOUS!  Loving so many things in there, and I know you will too!

I started with a piece of Whisper White thick cardstock (one sheet cut in half to form the card base).  I used the new Candy Cane Lane Washi tape (all red and white) for the background (and added a little  "Gorgeous Grunge" splatter too), then cut the new reindeer shape with the new Santa's Sleigh thinlit die from Dazzling Diamonds glimmer paper.  I've added a sentiment and just a few star sequins to finish it off.  Done!

Of course some of these items you won't be able to purchase until September 1st, but I am sure you are going to love them, and September is going to be a very fun month!  I've included links below for the items you CAN buy now, and the Reindeer thinlit (from a set called "Santa's Sleigh") and the washi tape you will be able to purchase next month!

Thoughtful Branches Gift Box



Today I spent some time preparing the class projects for next week's Thoughtful Branches class.  I haven't designed these projects myself this time... this is actually a class that Stampin'Up designers prepared and allowed us to run.  I did change the measurements around a little to suit our Australian metric system, but overall the projects are very similar.

Today's project is the box that we will be making in class. I love the classy look of the hydrangea on top of the box.  And the copper embossing really works well against the Kraft colour of the box. I am loving the Thoughtful Branches bundle.... it is so versatile!

This class will run next Wednesday 17th August at 11am... and the cost is $30.  However if you choose to purchase the bundle, your class is free!

To book your spot for next week's class (or any other class!) please click HERE and let me know you'll be attending!

If you are unable to attend the class but wish you could..... I have a proposal for you!  Everyone that orders the Thoughtful Branches bundle from me this month will receive the instructions for these projects (shown below) in their inbox.  So you still get to know how the projects were created...and you'll also have the bundle to make them with!
