Above the Clouds Make-and-Take

This is the other make-and-take from my Launch Party Open House. It's another simple one, but still hopefully with enough of a 'wow'!

For this one we used the new Above the Clouds Bundle and some new In Colors too - Seaside Spray and Terracotta Tile. I've paired them with Night of Navy and Grapefruit Grove.

I'm loving this new Night of Navy/Sahara Sand twine....it's the perfect finishing touch!

I hope you're having a lovely week!

New Beginner Brochure

Have you had a chance to check out the new Experience Creativity Beginner Brochure? This is a supplement to the Annual Catalogue with beginner stampers in mind, but there's plenty to love for more experienced crafters too!

As we probably all know, sometimes the whole catalogue can be a bit overwhelming...that is especially so for new stampers, so this year Stampin' Up! have also introduced a Beginners Brochure. In this brochure are a couple of catalogue items, but also some exclusive items which are perfectly suited to simple stamping for beginners. You can also find these beginner projects in the Experience Creativity Section in the Online Store.

If you are a beginner stamper and would like to receive a copy of the Beginner Brochure, just contact me and I would be happy to send you one (Australian residents only).

Magnolia Make-and-Take

Last weekend was my New Catalogue Launch Party Open House. I designed 2 make-and-takes for all the ladies to do on the day. I had to make them simple enough that they didn't require too much instruction, but still 'wow' enough. Hopefully I achieved that!

We made this card using the Good Morning Magnolia set...an absolute fave of mine! If you love this set too, then I highly recommend it's sister set, Magnolia Blooms. This set appears in our new
Beginner Brochure. Some of the items in this brochure feature in the Annual Catalogue, but there are other items exclusive to this brochure.

To make this card, we stamped the Crackle background in Versamark ink (TIP: use the Stamparatus for perfect positioning!). Next the large magnolia bloom was stamped in Early Espresso on the Crumb Cake cardstock. The small magnolia flower has been cut from the Designer Series Paper. I was very nice and pre-cut 30 of these for my ladies!! I popped a Vellum circle behind it for a touch of softness. The sentiment has been punched using the new Timeless Label Punch (this one is a must have!). Some of our prettiest ribbon and a few adhesive sequins finish off this card.

Thanks for popping by!

Craft Sale Next Weekend!

This weekend the main job on my to-do list is to sort through the piles of retired Stampin' Up! products that I have accumulated over the past few years. Next Saturday 22nd June our Team Craft Sale is happening again. Note the new time - we are having an afternoon time slot this year. If you arrive early, you will find a Martial Arts Class instead of Craft Bargains!

There will be 16 of us, with tables full of Retired Stampin' Up! stamps, inks, tools, papers and embellishments. We are busy cleaning out our cupboards in preparation, and have lots of products in need of a good home. Everything will be priced to sell, so there will be lots of bargains to be had!

Hope to see you there!

June Blog Hop

Welcome to another Stampers Anonymous Team Blog Hop! This month we have a Colour Challenge. You can make the complete circuit and see all the lovely creations by following the links at the end of each post.

Here is what I made with these 3 new In Colors:

After much deliberation, I decided to go floral with these colours. I've used the Floral Essence stamp set, and used sponge daubers to apply the ink to add some depth. I fussy cut and layered the flowers but happily, the Leaf punch fits the leaves in this set, so no fussy cutting required there!

I've used the Woven Threads Designer Series Paper and stamped some more flowers on the background piece. I used the Subtle 3D Embossing Folder on the Seaside Spray piece. The sentiment is from the same stamp set. I snipped the corners with a 1/2" Circle Punch, just to soften the edges.

A few Rhinestones for some bling and we are done!

Well, that’s it from me. Thanks for stopping by! Click on the button below to move to the next stop:

CCMC565 New Wonders

It's Thursday, and that means it's Challenge time again over at www.createwithconnieandmary.com. This week is a colour challenge, and these are the colours we had to work with:

I think this New Wonders stamp set would have to be one of the cutest sets in the whole Catalogue. It's a Stampin' Rewards set, so can't be ordered like regular sets. However, once you reach an order of $250 (can be a group or individual order), it can be ordered as part of your Stampin' Rewards. I totally think it's worth saving up a couple of orders to qualify for this adorable set!
I love this colour combo for being girly without being pink. The two purples are so pretty together and the Daffodil Delight adds a splash of freshness. I cut out the little fairy and popped her on a Stitched Circle. I used Blends to colour my image and also sparkled it up with some Dazzling Diamonds. I just popped little dots of Multipurpose Glue where I wanted some glitz and sprinkled the glitter on. I've used the Tin Tile Embossing Folder for the background and the Subtle embossing folder on the Gorgeous Grape piece.
The Polka Dot Tulle ribbon adds just a touch of whimsy!
I hope you like my card! Check out what the other talented stampers have come up with HERE. Don't forget you can play along over on the facebook page

Delightful Day Stamp-a-Stack

This is the other set of cards we are making in class this week. We are playing with all the new In Colors!
I love how well they all work so well with Crumb Cake...and that Scalloped Linen ribbon is to die for.
The new Delightful Day bundle makes super easy tags...in 3 different widths! This is the largest size on these cards. I just popped a piece of the In Color DSP behind each tag for a quick and simple card.

Thanks for stopping by!
