Enjoy the little things

I just love the new Swirly Birds Bundle as it’s such a versatile set and today’s card uses the bundle. You can use this bundle for children, female and male cards a like. Juts experiment and use a little imagination and get inky.

It’s time for another Latte Girl’s Blog Hop and this time we’re featuring Painter’s Palette from the 2016 – 2017 New Annual Catalogue and Ideas Book. Did you love the inspiration Leonie shared? Make sure you see what Narelle shares too using this creative stamp set.

20160614_154941

I’ve made two cards today – a feminine and male version of the same card. This card uses Dapper Denim and Crumb Cake with Whisper White for the card base and fronts. I’ve made a tent style card.

20160614_154954

I’ve used a variety of Dapper Denim, Emerald Envy and Memento Tuxedo Black inks and just literally ‘splashed’ the images around. I’ve done the same on the inside of the card and the front and back of the envelope.

20160614_155038

Here’s my feminine version of the card featuring Flirty Flamingo with Dapper Denim and Whisper White. I’ve added some Peakaboo Peach and Sweet Sugarplum ink to the front of this card.

20160614_155051

I’ve used a few more ‘spots’ on the inside of this card. If you look at both cards again you can see the front panels are essentially the same except for the combination of inks used. Then I’ve just used different card bases and styles to change them. I hope you enjoyed my shares and I’d love to read your comments – please leave me one.

This is the last of the Drapery/Curtain or Skirt Fold cards we made in a recent technique class. Whilst this Designer Series paper is retired, the selection of Designer Series Paper in the new catalogue is awesome, so make sure you check it out.

As will all cards with this fold, you need to score lightly on the Designer Series Paper and using the Simply Scored and then the Stampin’ Up! Trimmer, makes life so easy.

20160506_174903

I’ve used the Whisper White Organza Ribbon across the top of the fold, added a bow and some Gold Sequin Trim. I find Glue Dots of great help when doing this.

If you’d like to do a technique class with me, you cn see more on my Classes/Events page. The classes are held the 1st Saturday of each month from 1pm to 3pm.

Thank you for stopping by today and I hope you come back again soon to see what else I have to share.

Here’s another Drapery/Skirt/Curtain Fold Card we completed in one of my recent Technique Classes. Just love this fold and how elegant it can make a card. There is quite a bit of scoring to be done when making a double fold and you need to score lightly when using the Simply Scored,on the Designer Series Paper and then burnish well using a Bone Folder.

There are some retired products in this card however you could easily substitute them with current product. I’ve added the retired Very Vanilla Satin Ribbon to the top of the fold and some Bermuda Bay Sequin Trim. The sequin trim and the bow on the ribbon are adhered with Glue Dots.

20160506_174300

I always stamp the sentiment first, then if it’s not quite straight or you’re not happy with it, you can flip the piece of card over and re-stamp. This sentiment comes from the Cottage Garden Stamp Set and I’ve used one of the small flowers to stamp on the inside of the card and the front and back of the envelope.

2016-17 Annual Catalogue Blog Hop Header

Welcome to another wonderful ESAD (Extra Special Australasian Demonstrators) Blog Hop. If you’ve come here from Barbara’s Blog, I’m sure you enjoyed the inspiration she shared. If you’ve just started here, then you can scroll down further in the post to see a full list of participants. We all love to read your comments. so please leave everyone some inspiration love.

Here’s my first card to share today using Playful Palette Designer Series Paper Stack.

20160611_114014

I’ve used the stamp set from the Oh Happy Day Card Kit, just to show you another great way to maximise these kits and another way of show others how to get more from what is already a fabulous bargain.

20160611_114050

I’ve used the Copper Metallic Thread, also, just behind the little banner to add a bit of pizzazz. The card base on this card is Sweet Sugarplum..

2016-17 Annual Catalogue Blog Hop ESAD Info

Here is my next card, which is a version of the first to show you how you can make one card in two ways – maybe a feminine and masculine version of the same card.

20160611_113916

This card uses Dapper Denim as it’s base. I’ve stamped the sentiment on Whisper White with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink. I also painted the candles with Wink of Stella for some extra birthday glimmer.

20160611_113926

On this version, I have changed the slope of the stamped and hand cut banner and added the Copper Metallic Thread behind. I wound about 4 rounds, around 4 fingers and twisted that into a figure of 8 then applied to the back of the banner with Glue Dots. I find that, then allows me to fiddle with the thread to get it where I want if.

Now make sure you visit all the blogs in the hop. You’re off to Rachael’s blog next. I’ve listed all the blogs below in case you get a bit lost. Don’t forget if you’re an Australian or New Zealand Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator and you’d like to join ESAD leave a comment below and I’ll be in touch.

Running a bit late with my post today. It’s time for another Global Design Project Challenge. This week’s theme is ‘Get Well’. We often unexpectedly need this type of card, so it’s always good t have a few in our stash.

I’ve decided Sweet Sugarplum is one of my favourite new In Colors. I’ve stamped the image from ‘Flourishing Phrases’ in Sweet Sugarplum and then used my Wink of Stella to give it some glimmer. Not sure if you can see it in the photo?? You can see the Copper Metallic Thread I added to the side of the sentiment piece though. Copper Metallic Thread is another lovely new product.

20160611_165914

Make sure you visit the challenge page and look at all the awesome inspiration the design team have made, plus look at all the entries in the challenge. Visit some of the blogs and leave a comment – we all love comments.

20160611_165938

I’ve also used Sweet Sugarplum and the same image as the front of the card to stamp on the inside of the card and the back and front of the envelope.

The little ‘dots’ stamped on the image piece come from ‘Timeless Textures’ and are stamped in Blushing Bride and Emerald Envy which I stamped off before stamping on the card.
