A couple of weeks ago I shared a similar card which was created for my April Technique Class. The class participants learn a new technique, receive printed notes with coloured sample photos and make some card front or samples. The class typically goes for 2 hours. So, this class was learning to use the brayer. When I shared my cards on different groups I was surprised at the number of requests I received to do a video tutorial. Now, I’m sharing… Read more »

  I promised many people I’d do a tutorial on how to make this Stationary Box which would be suitable for many occasions, however this one I have designed as a gift for Mothers Day. I will give you the measurements in metric and imperial. You can change the Designer Series Paper and stamp set to suit your own needs. For everything to fit nicely into this case you need a Stampin’ Up! Wood Mount Case which can be purchased… Read more »

I have 2 versions of today’s card and I’m hoping if you haven’t bought this bundle yet, you will before the new catalogue comes out. The Watercolor Wings Photopolymer Set and the Bold Butterflies Framelit Dies are currently bundled for A$62.75. If you purchase them separately it would cost you A$74 so you save 15%. However these two products will not be bundled together in the new catalogue which commences 1st June. So my advice to you is to buy… Read more »

I made a similar card to this for a challenge recently and had so many comments and questions about it, I decided to make another one with a video tutorial. Card base is 1/2 and A4 sheet of Basic Black Layer 1 is a piece of Very Vanilla which is 5.5″ x 4″ or 14.3cm x 10cm. Use Memento Black to stamp the sentiment in the lower left corner of this piece. Layer 2 is the Designer Series Paper –… Read more »

On Wednesday, I told you Stampin’ Up! Weekly Deals will end in a couple of weeks. So for today’s Freebie Friday, I decided to feature the Stars Framelits Dies so you could make your own ‘star’ card. I’ve made a number of different ones and it depends on how many and the type of stars you use as to the number you need to cut out with your Big Shot. Here’s another sample: This one has the Silver Foil Sheet… Read more »

Welcome to another Freebie Friday and while you are reading this post I’m away at a Scrapbooking Bush Retreat. Not sure how much I’ll get done but you never know. So today’s card features Grateful Bunch Bundle which means you save 15% when you purchase it as a bundle. You get the Grateful Bunch Photopolymer Stamp Set and the Blossom Bunch Punch.  We’ll get started with today’s card. I haven’t put a sentiment on the card so it could be used for… Read more »

My apologies for this late posting. My scheduling went awry while I was away without internet and little telephone coverage. Nice to be back in civilization though. Welcome to another Freebie Friday. Have you ever made something you weren’t quite sure about? Well this card is one of those. However, the ladies at my March Technique Class really liked it, so it’s featuring today for Freebie Friday. Does it look like stormy seas? You can play with the colour until… Read more »

Hello and welcome to another Freebie Friday. I hope this post finds you well and ready to create a card or another project using this as inspiration. I’ve used a couple of new products from the Occasions Catalogue and one retired product from the Sale-A-Bration Brochure (however, if you’re quick with a $90 order you may still be able to get it free with your order). Cut a piece of A4 Basic Black card in half so you have your… Read more »
