Here’s today’s Freebie Friday card. It has no sentiment so it would be suitable for all types of occasions. It uses a Photopolymer Stamp Set from the current Occasions Catalogue and will be carried over to the new Annual Catalogue. I’ve used the co-ordinating punch, Blossom Bunch Punch which is currently bundled with the stamp set saving you 15%. It won’t be bundled in the new Annual Catalogue so my advice would be to buy it now and take advantage of… Read more »

I’ve done a video tutorial for today’s Freebie Friday. It uses the Stampin’ Up! Brayer and the Lovely As A Tree Stamp Set. This is the card I made using the card front from the video. I’ve also used Teeny Tiny Sentiments for the sentiment and punched it out with the Washi Label Punch. Now the current Brayer and the Washi Label Punch are retiring on 31 May or while stocks last, so if you want them you’d better get… Read more »

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 »
