January 2019 Card Class Animal Expedition

Welcome back to my card classes for 2019!

This month we made four cute cards using the super cute Animal Expeditions Suite. I used the happy birthday greeting form the new Amazing Life stamp set, I thought this worked really well with the images.

These cards are suitable for girls and boys of any age.

Rhino card

We stamped the rhino and coloured the bird using Stampin’ Blends, then cut it out with the matching Thinlits  ‘Animal Friends‘ die.

The cobbled path was run through the big shot using the embossing plates! I love these as the double the use of my dies! I can now cut or emboss.

Products used to make this card:

Kangaroo Card

I was inspired by a card in the Stampin’ Up catalogue. It’s lovely to have one of our Australian native animals to play with too 😀

The base of this card is on berry burst card stock and the kangaroo is cut out of the cute Designer Series Paper. The leafy cut out is using the dies in the bundle. The wooden elements ad a nice finishing touch.

Products used to make this card:

Giraffe card

I love how the giraffe is poking out of the circle. This was also cut out of the DSP. The frog on the branch was stamped and cut out with the matching framelits and… there’s a die for the old olive branch too!

Don’t you just love all of the coordination that Stampin’ Up! provides for us to make projects so much easier 😀

Products used to make this card:

 DSP Card

This one I totally cased from the annual catalogue. I just used a heart instead of the button and changed the greeting and the DSP pattern.

It features a full card front of the really cute DSP!

I love the leaf ribbon and the wooden elements, do you? They add a different element to the card.

Handy Hint: The easiest way to attach the leaf ribbon is using glue dots.

Alaskan Achievers Blog Hop June 2018 – Highlight New Catalogue Products

Welcome to our Alaska Achievers Blog hop for June!

Once again I have the privilege of taking part in this fabulous Blog Hop. Demonstrators from all around the globe have earned the incredible Stampin’ Up!® incentive cruise to Alaska this year including myself!

It’s now less than a month until our amazing cruise and EEEKKKK now only 3 days until Wade and I leave for our incredible adventure. Time to start thinking about packing!


This month we are highlighting the Stampin’ Up! ‘New Catalogue Products’

I have to be organised for my August class before I leave so I planned my class around the gorgeous Tea Room Memories and More card pack. Not only are these cards beautiful but they are also so versatile! They are fabulous for memory keeping as well as making cute, super quick and easy cards. I will share a couple with you.

As I will be really short on time upon our return,  I wanted to keep my class prep to a minimum. I am using the brand new Whisper White large Memories and More Cards and Envelopes. This will save me time cutting the cards down to fit our standard size card here in Australia.

The co-ordinating Tea Room Copper Vinyl Stickers will add a lovely embellishment to the cards too.

I used the Petal Pair Textured Embossing Folder for a little bit of texture using Rich Razzleberry card stock and stamped the image with a greeting from Picture Perfect Birthday. The little copper butterfly and a few rhinestones adds the finishing touch.

I used Calypso Coral on this card and combined a large and small card with Calypso Coral card stock behind the smaller card. Because the card base is white and the colours are very vanilla, I sponged the edges of the card to soften the white look. The greeting is out of Perennial Birthday and is stamped on a gorgeous new Stitched Labels Framelit. The embellishment is a copper lace strip and some new Artisan Pearls.

Products used to make these projects:

June 2018 Class – Climbing Orchid

A big THANKYOU to all who came to my classes last week.

We made four cards using the Climbing Orchid stamp set and  Orchid Builder matching Framelits. This beautiful set has carried over from the last catalogue. I bought it a long time ago but only got the chance to play with it recently.

The first card I cased from “Short Cake Scraps”. We used the double layered stamp to create this lovely card. The card base was made using Fresh Fig card stock and card front was on Very Vanilla. The branches were stamped using the new Stamparatus positioning tool.

Products used to make this project:

 

The second card was inspired by a card in the new  2018-2019 Stampin’ Up! catalogue (pg. 24). I used blushing bride for the card front and stamped the orchid in Melon Mambo ink. The Ruffled 3D dynamic embossing folder created a beautiful background.

Products used to make this project:

 

The third card is my design. I think the Old Olive matches so well with the new in-colour Grapefruit Grove. Everyone had their own choice of greetings. ‘Thinking of you’ covers a lot of occasions.

Products used to make this project:

 

The fourth card was inspired by a card on pg 21 of the 2017-2018 catalogue. We distressed the edges of the card front for a little extra texture. The branches were stamped using the new Stamparatus positioning tool.

Products used to make this project:

 

Everyone loved the cards they created and are looking forward to the next class. If you would like to join us, please see the class schedule. There won’t be a July class as I will be away but we’ll be back on deck in August.
