14910341_1210796395630966_113327404274939171_n I just thought I should share a few more photos from On Stage Live, before the end of the month. This is Rich Jutkins the President of Stampin’ Up! saying he can sing and ‘performing’. He was so funny and he really shouldn’t give up his day job. He was stamping at On Stage Live too. A man of many talents.

This is Emma from the New Zealand Office. It’s been a while since Emma has been allowed on stage to stamp since she ironed some interfacing onto a table-cloth instead of the fabric. However, this time she stamped and did a great job, but had to keep reminding us her ‘boobs’ were in the way. Funny moments again at On Stage Live. Definitely worth attending.

This is the gorgeous card I received from my good friend, room-mate and Team Manager, Leonie Schroder. I just love the Very Vanilla and Smoky Slate combination and she’s used Awesomely Artistic as the stamp set. Just gorgeous.

Here we are next to one of the many decorations which were present at On Stage Live in Brisbane 2016.

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

I’m back to trying some challenges this week and thought this WWYS Challenge #92 // Star of Light would be a good one to do. I just love this stamp set but haven’t had much time to play with it. I shared a card yesterday and decided to make another using different colours.

Here’s my card today:

I’ve used Elegant Eggplant, Smoky Slate and Silver Glimmer Paper along with Whisper White.I’ve added a rhinestone to the centre of the stars. The background star trail is stamped in Elegant Eggplant and the sentiment is stamped with Versamark and then Silver Embossed.  As usual I have stamped on the envelope and on the inside of the card.

wwys92_star-of-light

Now this comes as a bundle for 10% off, so that’s a bargain. The Star Of Light Photopolymer Bundle #143508 for A$84.50. Star of Light Photopolymer Stamp Set. You can add elegance to your Christmas projects with the graceful designs and sentiments in this set. Combine images and thoughts to create classic cards and gift tags that have your personal touch.
* Quantity: 21 photopolymer stamps
The bundle also includes Starlight Thinlits Dies
* 7 dies
* Largest image: 3-1/16″ x 3-3/4″ (7.8 x 9.5 cm)

I hope you like today’s variation of Friday’s Freebie Friday Card. Make sure you check out the What Will You Stamp site to see the rest of the inspiration.

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

Remember, your creativeness is only limited by your imagination. Keep smiling and until next we share …

Freebie_Friday-001

This week’s Freebie Friday features The Star of Light bundle. This is a lovely bundle and is appropriate for many occasions, not just Christmas. However, today’s card is a Christmas Card.

star-of-light

So here’s all the important information:

measurements-001

  • Card base: Pool Party 4 ¼” x 11”, scored at 5 ½”
  • Pool Party: scrap about 2-1/2” x 2-1/2”
  • Layer #1: Smoky Slate 4” x 5-1/4”
  • Layer #2: Whisper White 3-3/4” x 5”
  • Glimmer Paper: scraps 4” x 3-1/2” plus two about 1” x 1”
  • Silver Metallic Thread: about 30”

My Album 1_2-001

 

  1. Using 3 of the Starlight Thinlits Dies, the Big Shot and the Magnetic Platform, die cut out of Silver Glimmer Paper. Set aside.
  2. Using Pool Party cardstock, die cut the star that will nest on top of the large glimmer paper star. Adhere together using Multipurpose Liquid Glue and allow to dry. Once dry, affix one rhinestone to center.
  3. Stamp starry swirl with Pool Party onto the Whisper White cardstock.
  4. Stamp sentiment beneath with Basic Gray.
  5. Adhere all layers to one another using SNAIL.
  6. Tie ends of Silver Metallic Thread together with a knot. Wind looped thread around fingers to create as many equal circles as you can that will be large enough to lay beneath the star and peek out. Carefully lay the ring of thread onto back of large Silver Star and adhere with tiny pieces of Scotch Tape or in any other manner that you prefer.
  7. Add Dimensionals to back of large Silver Star then position on top of starry swirl.
  8. Using SNAIL or a drop of Multipurpose Liquid Glue, affix the two remaining stars by putting the larger one on top left and the smaller on bottom right.

I hope you enjoyed today’s card and make a heap of them for Christmas.

Welcome to another ESAD Blog Hop and this one is in celebration of our favourites from the current Holiday Catalogue. There is so much to love about this catalogue and if you haven’t got yourself organised for Christmas yet, there will be some wonderful inspiration shared across all the blogs in the hop so make sure you look at them all.

My first project is a 12″ x 12″ frame using the Candy Cane Lane Designer Series Paper (D.S.P.).

20161124_160434

It was a little difficult to photograph but I think you’ll be able to see what I’ve done. The backing is a piece of 12″ x 12″ Whisper White card. I’ve then used 3 1/2″ squares of Real Red and the D.S.P. layered on top of that is 3 1/4″ squares. I’ve cut some pieces from the D.S.P. and used them to decorate the some of the squares and others are decorated with elements stamped and punched or cut from the Jolly Friends Photopolymer Bundle. Here’s the Candy Cane Lane Designer Series Paper (D.S.P.)

141981g

I also used the Holly Jolly Layers stamp set with the Layering Squares and Stitched Shapes Framelits dies for the centre square. It was quite easy to make. The only difficult thing is finding the frame.

esad-information

20161124_173122

My card also uses the Candy Cane Lane Designer Series Paper. The sentiment is from the Cookie Cutter Photopolymer Stamp Set. Photopolymer stamps are so great as you can see where you’re stamping and you can shape them as you wish. In this instance I’ve created a curve to coincide with the shape made by the houses which are all hand cut and adhered individually.

20161124_173145

Of course, if you’re giving a lovely card you also have a gift which will need a Gift Bag made with the Gift Bag Punch Board. This was a piece which was left over and measures 12″ x 8 1/2″ and I made a Large Bag.

20161124_173156

I punched the holes in the front and back of the bag after I’d completed the cuff which is about 1 1/4″.  The Real Red Satin Stitched Ribbon is just knotted on each end inside the bag/ If you put a cuff on your bag make sure you adhere it down at the join.

20161124_173238

 

Now make sure you take a look at all the other inspiration celebrating favourites of the Holiday Catalogue. Don’t forget to leave me a comment with your email address if you’d like to joing ESAD or want any more information on anything posted here.

Look at this wonderful gift from my friend and team member, Kay Jacob. Kay gave it to me at On Stage Live in Brisbane earlier in the month. Kay has used Peekaboo Peach Ruched Ribbon on the outside to make the package pretty.

There is a whole card on the front of this pouch which is beautifully made using the Rose Wonder Bundle and some ink and daubers. Kay has used the Kraft Rope Trim from the Holiday Catalogue.

This is the pouch open and inside Kay has tucked 4 beautiful cards. The Kraft Rope Trim serves not only to keep this pouch closed but to keep the cards inside as well.

Here are two of the lovely cards inside the pouch. One for birthdays and one to send to someone I’m thinking of. Just beautiful.

These are the other two cards included in the pack. Another birthday one and a Thank You. You can never have too many beautiful hand-made cards on hand and I’m going to find it hard to give these new homes as I know they’ve been made with love and much thought. Thanks so much Kay.

14962738_804086896397958_8581529211694725925_n

Now before I finish this post I just had to share the above image with you. Shelli Gardner and Sara Douglass  (Mother & Daughter) stamped at On Stage Live. Shelli is a bit innocent when it comes to throw away comments but Sara isn’t and the whole thing ended in fits of laughter and so much fun. These two amazing women are so free with their time and very sharing. It’s definitely a wonderful company to be part of.

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

Remember, your creativeness is only limited by your imagination. Keep smiling and until next we share …
