December 2018 Christmas Card Class

For the last class of the year we made eight lovely cards using the Festive Farmhouse Designer Series Paper with matching card stock. 

The red distressed card tin is perfect for storing them in or can be used as a gift.

We use various techniques to create these gorgeous cards and everyone enjoyed the class thoroughly.

Thanks to everyone who comes to my classes I look forward to creating with you all again next year.

Tip Of The Week – Heat Emboss Vellum

Here’s my tip of the week. Did you know that you can stamp and heat emboss on Vellum?

Vellum gives a great effect when layered and can be stamped and heat embossed.

The Merry Christmas To All Bundle has a great range of Christmas sentiments and shapes for your enjoyment.

Beautiful Baubles Card Make

I made a beautiful Christmas card using the Beautiful Baubles Bundle and Foil-edged Cards and Envelopes.

I created my own stamp pad using wet wipes and re-inkers to create a multi-colour look.

The foil-edged cards and envelopes give the finished card a premium look

Alaskan Achievers Blog Hop September 2018 – Holiday Catalogue

Welcome to our Alaska Achievers Blog hop for September

This is my last Alaskan Achievers Blog Hop that I have the privilege of taking part in. I’ve been humbled to participate in this along with many Demonstrators from all around the globe.

Once again, a huge thank you to all of my team and customers who helped me achieve this incredible reward. I wouldn’t have been able to do it without you. #alaskasu2018 #stampinup30

This month we are highlighting Stampin’ Up! new Holiday Catalogue  product.

I’ve had fun playing this weekend and creating samples for my upcoming Holiday Catalogue Launch Fundraiser. I’ll share a few with you today.

I created this cute set of cards using the Festive Farmhouse Suite on page 12 in your new catalogue. The Festive Farmhouse Cardstock Pack co-ordinates beautifully with this suite keeping the colours simple by just using Very Vanilla, Old Olive and Cherry Cobbler with a touch of silver on the accents.

The lovely versatile Festive Farmhouse DSP and Elements are the feature on my cards.  I cased a catalogue sample for inspiration and changed it up to make it my own.

I love stitching on cards but usually find it too much trouble. I had the time and I’m glad I got the sewing machine out as this added a cute touch to the cards too.

I used the gorgeous new Striped Burlap Trim for as an accent through the centre of the card and I enjoyed layering. The little sprigs are from the new Sprig Punch.

I separated the Cherry Cobbler twine into a single strand to add a little extra texture.

I had my first ever play with shimmer paint and I am in love! I put a few drops into some Isocol alcohol solution using my spritzer and just sprayed a fine mist over the finished cards to give it that little bit of sparkle.

If you’d like to learn how to make cards like these and have some creative fun, come to my classes, I would love for you to join us!
