Male cards seem difficult to make however Stampin’ Up! have this fantastic new designer Series Paper Stack called Adventure Bound and it’s just perfect for male cards I think.

20150319_171401

The brick wall piece comes from the stack and is just great for this card. The Big Day stamp set is available free when you spend A$90 on product from either of the current catalogues (see side bar for links). I inked the stamps with Versamark and then heat set White Emboss Powder.

20150319_171420

I’ve used two other layers of card stock on top of the base card and then the designer series paper. The inside has a layer of Whisper White and it slips neatly inside a C6 White Envelope. I just love the quality of the Stampin’ Up! envelopes.

Not strictly Stampin’ Up! but lots of fun to make and great decor items. A couple of weeks ago I did a post called Pom Poms with Thick Baker’s Twine. Well I had so much fun making them I made some more however this time I used acrylic yarn. It’s not an item I normally use however seemed to work well for these decor items. I have tried to match Stampin’ Up! colours as best I can. See if you can pick the like colours.

20150319_183423

Make sure when you’re trimming them you do it over a bin or some paper which can easily be tipped into a bin. I had little bits everywhere and the colours seemed to meld together. The patterned milk bottles are from Typo.

20150319_183445

I’ll share various views of the one jar so you can see the colours and the combination. These would be great to get the children to make during school holidays and not that messy either.

20150319_183453

All you really need is some yarn and a piece of stiff card board to wind the yarn around. You do need some sharp snips to cut the yarn, so some supervision would be needed.

20150319_183517

I think I have Strawberry Slush, Pistachio Pudding, Daffodil Delight, Crisp Cantaloupe and perhaps Marina Mist. Lots of fun. Give it a try.

Do you love beautiful things? Well the Sheer Perfection Designer Vellum available as a free product through Sale-A-Bration when you spend A$90 on products from either of the current catalogues and the vellum is just gorgeous. Look at it on the flyer below:

SAB2

Now I will share with you some of the samples made by Mary Ellen Byler and Lynsay Mahon:

SheerPerfectionDesignerVellum

A combination of vellum used above to create an interesting background over the embossing.

SheerPerfectionDesignerVellum1

The butterflies on the vellum can be coloured on the wrong side using Stampin’ Write Markers, reinkers or using an Aqua Painter and ink pads. Great look.

SheerPerfectionDesignerVellum2

Used here, the vellum forms a beautifully classy lid for a box, together with the Artisan Embellishment Kit

SheerPerfectionDesignerVellum3

Here the vellum is used over a background piece of Designer Series Paper and stamped on in Versamark and heat set with White Emboss Powder.

SheerPerfectionDesignerVellum4

What a fantastic background the vellum makes for such a striking flower? Machine stitching onto the card adds an extra element to the card.

SheerPerfectionDesignerVellum5

On the above card, the vellum has been used to cut a Butterfly and added to Whisper White card which makes it quite striking and beautiful.

SheerPerfectionDesignerVellum6

The vellum has been used to make a cute Curvy Keepsakes Box with added embellishments for Easter.

SheerPerfectionDesignerVellum7

A vellum envelope to hold a small card with a gold embossed sentiment on the front too. Great idea.

SheerPerfectionDesignerVellum8

Again some water colouring or colouring with Stampin’ Write Markers has added another dimension to the card above with the vellum layered on Whisper White card.

SheerPerfectionDesignerVellum9

This last card uses the vellum for a balloon on this great birthday card.

As you may already know, Stampin’ Up! has made the hard decision to discontinue with immediate effect, Blendabilities.  There was a manufacturing defect that wasn’t going to be fixed in a time line which Stampin’ Up! were happy with, so they decided that rather than have a substandard product it was better to remove them completely.So Stampin’ Up! brought out some extra product you can get free when you spend A$90. Now one of the stamp sets For Being You is a great stamp set to have. The Artwork below is by Winona Semler and Stampin’ Up!

Last Sunday we had a Latte Girls Team Meeting. It was a lot of fun. I learnt a new technique that I have known about for sometime but haven’t actually tried. So we used the new stamp set in the Sale-A-Bration Brochure only available in March. The set is called For Being You.

20150318_143647

Now since Blendabilities are now off the market, we used an Aqua Painter and Inks to colour the letters in graduated tones. We used Whisper White card and stamped in Stazon and I think it worked out quite well.

20150318_143655

It’s similar to the sample in the Sale-A-Bration brochure. However I added extra rows of hearts. You could also punch out some hearts using the Bitty Accents Punch Pack – Heart – add them in Glimmer Paper or stamp them in Coastal Cabana on Whisper White and add stamped ones to your card.

Just before I finish, I thought I’d share just one of the photos taken at the Team Event – it was such a hoot.

Don’t you just love versatile products. the Bow Builder Punch and Tiny Treat Boxes are two such products. Look what happens when you combine them with some lovely Designer Series Paper:

20150318_143709

We made this at our Latte Girls Team Meeting last Sunday as well. Just assemble the Tiny Treat Box, add some Best Year Ever (or your favourite) Designer Series Paper and punch out enough for four complete bows for the lid. You only need Multipurpose Liquid Glue to get it all done.

20150318_143719

By placing the bows at an angle, you get this fantastic look on top of the box. As it’s close to Easter, out lovely Team Leader, Leonie Schroder, filled the boxes full of Easter goodness.

20150318_143749

Fun and inexpensive to make ans don’t hold too much chocolate to over indulge upon.

We have this great Designer Series Paper Stack called Adventure Bound and it’s terrific for Male Cards, however I have used it to make some Winter Love cards. Just getting ready for the change in seasons and the cooler months ahead.

20150318_160234

I just love the warmth these two particular sheets convey and with the sentiment from Sheltering Tree Photopolymer Stamp Set, they just seemed to go together well.

20150318_160251

This card uses Marina Mist as its base and I added the Red Glimmer Paper Heart to just give the card a bit of a lift in colour.

20150318_160300

The buttons are from the Subtles Designer Button pack and are tied with Whisper White Baker’s Twine which I feel adds to the ‘wool’ effect.

20150318_160320

Unfortunately the photo doesn’t do this one justice. I felt the sentiment would look a bit lost on this background so decided to add the Decorative Label as an added feature.

20150318_160328

As the stamps are photopolymer, it makes it easy to see where you ink thus easy to ink the sentiment twice to make two lines on the Decorative Label which was then sponged with Tempting Turquoise and a sponge dauber.
