Fabulous Flamingo Thanks Card

Hello,

While searching for different idea's on ways to use the Embossing Paste, I saw a tutorial where she used the our Embossing Folders to create texture in the embossing paste. I was thinking "Will that will work" Of, course I had to give it a try!

  DSC_0010

I first cut out a large circle using our thick Whisper White card stock, the big shot machine, the magnetic platform and the Layering Circle Framelits. 

For the embossing paste, I mixed a few drops of Bermuda bay re-inker into my embossing paste and mixed the paste till I had the colour that I wanted. Once, I had the colour that I was looking for, I apply the paste to my circle, making sure to add paste to the whole circle. 

Using the Seaside Textured Impressions Embossing Folder, I open the folder and press half of the folder into the paste and press down on the folder to ensure that the emboss images would transfer to my paste. Pull up the folder and voila, you now have the seaside embossing folder images in your paste. Let dry for about 10 mins before adding to your project!!

I kept my card simply as I wanted to focus on the technique on this card. My leaves behind the flamingo are leftover leaves from the June Paper Pumpkin kit called "One in Melon". I love when you can use our kits on your everyday projects!!

Coffee Cups Merry Wishes Card

Hello,

It's an exiting day for us Demonstrator's!!! Today is the day that we can order from the new Holiday Catalogue. This new catty is filled to the brim with tons of fun and exciting new products. I can' wait to place my pre-order and get those new goodies in my hands to start playing with them!! 

Last week at our Christmas Stamp a Stack, we had fun creating this fun Rustic Card. I really want to create a card with the Coffee Cups Framelits. All I could think about was those fun Holiday cups we get from Tim Horton's or Starbucks during the Holiday Season!

DSC_0024

I was looking for a greeting to put on the wrapper of my cup but none of my Christmas stamp would fit. Then I remember I had the Ribbon Of Courage stamp set, and knew that the "Sending Love and Hugs to you" would be a perfect fit for my card!!

I used the Coffee Cups Framelits, the Big Shot Machine and the Magnetic Platform to cut out my coffee cup from the Be Merry Designer Series Paper pack. This designer series paper is perfect for your Holiday Projects as it has the traditional colours of Real Red, Whisper White and Garden Green. 

Out of the cards that we made last week at class, this was their top pick as their favourite!! I always like to ask my stampers which one is their favourite from the night!

Hooray, it's your Day!!

Happy Monday!!

Today, I'm sharing one of the cards that we made a few weeks ago at our Demo Slizzin' Day! I had challenged my community of stampers to some goals, and those that achieved those goals were invited to an afternoon of stamping with me! We had lunch first, and then spent the day stamping, learning a few tip and tricks, and of course what is an event without prize patrol!! The ladies were pretty excited about their day and all the goodies that they went home with!!

I wanted to share with them how you can take a stamp set and use if for different occasions. I used the Wood Words stamp set to create this masculine card. I always find that we struggle with making these ones!!

DSC_0018

The perfect accent to this card was the Wood Texture Designer Series Paper Pack. This fabulous pattern paper is the right size for projects as you get 48 double size 6 by 6 sheets. I just love all the different wood grains in the pack!!

The stars are stamped in Dapper Denim and Smoky Slate ink onto a piece of whisper white card stock. Then using the Big Shot machine, the magnetic platform and the Wood Crate framelits, I was able to cut these out ease!! That is my kind of stamping and cutting out!! 

Today is the last day to take advantage of the HO, HO, HO Christmas Promotion. Not only do you get the stamp set Carols of Christmas for FREE but you also get an Essential Gift pack value at $94. Now that is a steal of a deal!!

Coffee Cafe Card

Happy Monday!!

Wow, what a fabulous time we had on Saturday at my 1st Demonstrator Training Event. I had 14 ladies join me for a fun filled day of business training, lots of stamping, goody bags, food and of course prize patrol. What is a Stampin' Up! event without prize patrol..that is always our favourite part!!

One of the class that we did at our training event was designed around the Coffee Cafe Bundle. This is my number one go to bundle! And the funny thing...I don't even drink coffee. But I do love a good cold Vanilla Bean Frappuccini from Starbucks!!

DSC_0056

One of the tips that I shared with the ladies at the event was how to create the pool party background along with the black splatter on it. They were all amazed that you could do this with our markers!! 

DSC_0058

I think my favourite part on this cup is the vellum lid as I feel it just finishes off the cold drink!!

Thanks a Latte!!

Happy Monday! 

It was a wet and rainy weekend here which meant it was a great time to stay indoor and stamp! I have been busy prepping for a few events that I have coming up in July! One of the bundles that I was playing with was the new Coffee Break Suite! I'm not a Coffee drinker but this bundle is at the top of my must have from the new Annual catalogue!!

IMG_7092

One of our favourite drinks to get when we head to Starbucks is a yummy cold frappuccino! We love that is comes in different flavours and the extra topping on the top is the best!! 

I have listed the colour combination that I used below for you! I pulled these colours right from the Coffee Break Designer Series Paper pack. Did you know that Stampin' Up! lists the coordinating colours for you on the back on the paper pack?

To create my cup, I stamped the cup image in Pear Pizzaz and stamp it onto a piece of Whisper White scrap. Then using my Big Shot machine, Magnetic Platform and the Coffee Cups Framelits Die, I die cut the cup out. Then I stamp the whip topping in Smoky Slate onto a piece of Whisper White scrap and die cut it out with Big Shot machine and the Coffee Cup Framelits. 

To create the lid, I die cut the lid by cutting it out with a piece of Vellum Card stock, a Big Shot machine and the Coffee Cup Framelits. My straw, I stamped in Real Red and cut with out the Straw Framelits, then I took my Real Red marker and just went around the edges. 

I add a little bit of splatter with my Early Espresso Marker! 

IMG_7095

Love, love, the new Corrugated Elements! This adds that little extra detail to your project!! I can't wait to share the other project with you but you will have to wait a little longer to after my event in July!!

Freshly Made Sketches 292

Hello,

Over the weekend, I had a chance to play along with last weeks sketch over at Freshly Made Sketches. This sketch was designed by Cécile and it was a fun one. At first, I was like "what am I going to do with that sketch?" After playing around with a few different colour combinations, I finally came up with this!!

IMG_7110

I had some new product on my table and I thought why not use them! LOVE, LOVE the new Pinewood Planks 3D Dynamic Texture Impression Folder! The impressions are so deep and real!!

I went with the colour combination of Berry Burst, Basic Black and Whisper White. These colours together are so rich and stunning!! 

My pattern paper is from the Color Theory Designer Series Pack and the Pick a Pattern Designer Series Paper pack!! 

Doesn't this chair look so inviting? Makes me just want to sit outside with a nice cold glass of Ice Tea!! I used the Colorful Seasons stamp set!! The greeting is from the Happy Birthday Gorgeous stamp set!

I hope that you will head over to Freshly Made Sketches to give this sketch a try!!

High Tide Swoosh Technique

Hello,

Last week, while checking out my friend Patty's blog, I came across this cool technique that she showed cased. I thought it really cool and wanted to give it a try. When I saw the technique, I vision a card made with the High Tide stamp set and the swoosh technique behind it. 

IMG_7057

The swoosh technique was done to create my water in the background behind my lighthouse!! This is such a cool technique and I can't wait to share the other card with you!! 

The colours that I used were: Soft Sky, Pool Party and Marina Mist! I love how it looks like the tide is rolling in towards the shoreline.

I stamped the Highlight in Real Red with the solid image and Smoky Slate with the outline image. This creates the shadow effect on the lighthouse! My sand was stamped in Soft Suede and then I add some Old Olive grass randomly over the sand.

Want to recreate my card, you will need the following products: 

  • Pool Party Card stock - 5 1/2 by 8 1/2, score at 4 1/4
  • Pool Party Card Stock - 4 by 5 1/4
  • Dapper Denim Card Stock - 1 by 4
  • Eastern Palace Specialty Designer Series Paper Pack - 3 by 4
  • Watercolour Paper - 3 by 4
