“Silent gratitude isn’t much use to anyone” G.B. Stern

The Latte Girls Team is looking at “Thanks” today. So let’s start out correctly and let me say ‘thank you’ for visiting my blog today and looking at my work. I’d also like to thank you for visiting the other blogs in the hop today.

Saying thank you – it’s everyday etiquette and a simple courtesy that takes just a moment. It costs nothing, not even effort. But it’s also one of the most important ways in which we interact with others, both those closest to us and those with whom we have contact for the briefest of times.

User comments

‘Thank you’ has something truly magic about it. Like sorry, it’s just words, but they act as shorthand for so much more. Thank you shows our appreciation and conveys our gratitude. But more than that, it is a sign of respect to the person who has helped you (or given you something). It is an indication you do not take them for granted, and an acknowledgement that they matter. And that is why saying thank you matters.

I also have a video today to show you how I made this card:

This is a card I did a Video Tutorial on for my Watercolor Bundle Class this month. It’s a great technique which uses Stampin’ Write markers, Aqua Painters and a masking technique.

I just love how many different ways you can alter the images in this stamp set and it’s so easy to make all the cards look beautiful.

I added some Fine Tip Glue Pen in various spots and then put some Dazzling Diamonds Glitter on to simulate rain drops.

This card uses the same technique but I’ve done it on Shimmery White card instead of Watercolor Paper. It makes a little bit of difference as you can’t go over and over on this card like you can with watercolor paper. I still like the effect though. Those ruffles you can get are special.

If you’d like to join my Watercolor Bundle Class or particpate in a Viewing Only Membership please contact me for details.

I made this card using the masking technique with one of the images from the new stamp set called Beautiful You from the Occasions Catalogue.

I actually made a video tutorial for my Watercolor Bundle Monthly Class and it seems to be quite popular, It’s an easy technique to do and the Aqua Painters and ink from the lid of your stamp pad.

I’ve used the metallic ribbon from the Sale-A-Bration Brochure. There’s one with gold and the other has silver threads running through it. It’s gorgeous ribbon and you can get the combo pack FREE when you spend A$90 or more.

Global Design Project 069 Colour Challenge

This project is for the Global Design Project 069 Colour Challenge. Make sure you visit to see the inspiration provided by the design team and the other participants in the challenge.

I CASed this from the Occasions Catalogue (page 50) and used it as part of the ESAD (Extra Special Australasian Demonstrators) Blog Hop last Sunday. You can see the original at the bottom of this post. I had so many comments on it and requests for measurements, I decided to do a Video Tutorial and show exactly how I came up with the measurements and made the card.

This would make a beautiful wedding or engagement card or invitation. It’s just stunning – thanks Stampin’ Up! for the idea. The catalogues are full of inspiration, sitting there ready for us to share. Here’s the video and below it I will share some more images and the measurements:

METRIC:
  • Backing card 15cm x 13.5cm score at 1cm on each side
  • Inside layer 1 12.5cm x 13.5cm
  • Inside Layer 2 12cm x 13cm
  • Ribbon approx. 1.2m (120cm)
IMPERIAL:
  • Backing card 6″ x 5 1/4″ score at 1/4″ on each side
  • Inside Layer 1 = 5″ x 5 1/4″
  • Inside Layer 2 = 4 7/8″ x 5 1/8″
  • Ribbon approx. 47″

Here’s a closer look at the Silver Foil flower added to the ribbon

It was so easy to cut it out and I think it really adds to the whole projects. What do you think?

This view shows the Silver Foil Flower added to the insert of the card. You could add more if you wanted to and add them anywhere on the card. There are so many possibilities with this bundle. Below is the original project I made:

It’s a simply gorgeous bundle and at 10% off when you buy the bundle it’s a real bargain!!

In a post I did this week for my Watercolor Bundle Class, I showed how I had some small pieces of Designer Series Paper left over and said I had a use for them. This card and today’s video show how I used them.
This is such an elegant stamp set with many, many uses. It also lends itself to a variety of techniques, not just water colouring
I hope you enjoyed this Video Tutorial which gave you a tip to use up your scraps of patterned paper and another way to use this gorgeous stamp set..

Well whilst Miss Leonie was away without her stamps she issued her team with a colour challenge. So I decided to play along – it’s not compulsory but it’s good to work outside of your comfort zone every now and then.

These were the colours in the challenge and these are the colours I used:

This is my eldest Grand daughter, Paige at her cousin Scarlett’s 1st birthday in 2015. There’s only 5 weeks between them and they’re both simply gorgeous.

It was a very quick layout once I’d decided on the photo and the colours. I’ve used a number of stamp sets.

Here you can see stamping from the following sets : Timeless Textures; Gorgeous Grunge and Suite Sentiments which is from the Occasions Catalogue

The new delicate Doilies which are Whisper White on one side and Very Vanilla on the other are perfect for many layouts. I’ve added one of the Falling In Love Embellishments which I had a video on how to change the colour with Stampin’ Emboss Powder the other day.

I used the stamp set Touches of Texture with Flirty Flamingo and really loved the look of it. What do you think?

I hope you’ve subscribed to my Newsletter as that’s where I share all the best news which Stampin’ Up! offers and specials and class information I have PLUS 2 FREE card tutorials every Newsletter.

Who doesn’t like ‘sweet stuff’? Of course we only have it included in a ‘balanced diet’

I decided to go with the Tasty Trucks set for this blog hop and I hope you like what I’ve come up with. I’ll be giving the tutorial to my Watercolor Bundle Monthly Class. You can see all the details here.

So here’s the set which you can earn for FREE when you spend A$90

 

Who didn’t like Mr Whippy when we were kids? My husband was told the music was to warn children not to line up with their money as he was out of ice cream!!

So my card is a Birthday Wish card using the Tasty Trucks images.

I’ve also used the Cupcakes & Carousels Designer Series Paper Stack, Black Archival Ink and the Watercolor Pencils with a Blender Pen on Shimmery White Cardstock.

Here’s another sample from the Sale-A-Bration Brochure.

So many sweet treat variations you can make using this bundle. It’s also quite a versatile stamp set as it’s photopolymer which means lining various elements up is super easy.

Wow, can you believe it’s been a whole month since our last  #Alaska2018 Blog Hop? Here in Australia we could do with some Alaskan cool as we’ve had temperatures consistently of up to 40°C or 104°F the last few days and yes, it is summer but we could do with a cool breeze.

Anyway I have 2 projects to share with you today. Here’s my first:

I’ve combined the new Beautiful You Stamp Set from the current Occasions Catalogue with some product from the Annual Catalogue. I’ve used Blooms & Bliss Designer Series paper for the background. I’ve simply cut a piece of it in half on an angle and used the reverse side. That’s what’s great about Stampin’ Up” Designer Series Paper, it’s double-sided.

I stamped and coloured the image with Watercolor Pencils first and allowed to dry whilst I put the rest of the card together before running it through my Big Shot.

Make sure you visit the other blogs in the hop for more inspiration. There’s a full list of participants further down in this post.
