Party Pop Up Thinlits Technique Class #2



This is the second card we are making in my Technique Class next week. These pop-ups have a real wow, especially when you step them up a bit. They are so much fun to play with, and I love seeing the recipients face when they open their card....it elicits a 'wow' every time :)

Grateful Bunch Birthday Card


Last week I hosted our first team get-together for the year. It was a casual and relaxed "Come and Play" day (and night). Over the course of the day and evening, I managed to make 9 cards. It was lovely to sit and chat and create with no agenda.
Here's a quick and easy card I made using the Grateful Bunch stamp set and co-ordinating punch. The punch makes quick work of cutting out all those flowers!
My colour palette is Crumb Cake, Soft Suede, Lost Lagoon, Hello Honey and Whisper White.

Time for Tea


Do you ever see a stamp set and just know without question that you'll be buying it? When I saw "A Nice Cuppa" and the co-ordinating framelits, they went straight onto my "must have" list.
This was the first card I made using the set, but I have plans for many more!
I've paired it with the Birthday Bouquet Designer Series Paper - it's my favourite paper in the Occasions Catalogue. I can't stop using it!
I couldn't decide whether to use Mint Macaron or Pool Party for my tea cups, so I used both! It co-ordinates well with the watercolour look of the DSP, I think. To get this look, I just inked the lower half of the stamp in Mint Macaron, and the top half in Pool Party. Then I used a sponge dauber to blend the middle part so there was a gradual transition in colour.

Sky is the Limit Stamp-a-Stack


I'm so looking forward to getting back to classes next week...it feels like an age since I last saw everyone! It's always fun when we're using lots of new goodies. I have a few places available next Tuesday (9th) and Wednesday (10th) night if you'd like to join us!
I've combined some products from the Sale-a-Bration brochure and Occasions Catalogue on these cards. The Sky is the Limit stamp set has been the most popular Sale-a-Bration stamp set with my customers - perhaps because they know it's only available until February 15, perhaps because we all always need more masculine sets.
I thought the bi-plane image would also work well with the Going Places Paper Stack and World Traveler Embossing Folder.
The colours I've used are Mossy Meadow, Sahara Sand, Lost Lagoon, Delightful Dijon, Basic Black and Very Vanilla

Honeycomb Happiness Trio


I loved Teneale's sketch for the Global Design Project, so I decided to play along....just a couple of weeks late!! I've used the Sale-a-Bration Honeycomb Happiness stamp set and Perfectly Artistic DSP (both available for free during Sale-a-Bration with a $90 purchase). I liked the sketch so much that I used it 3 times!
Instead of colouring these images, I've stamped them onto the Perfectly Artistic DSP (the soft, watercoloured side) and cut them out.
 
 
 
Which one is your favourite? Much as I love balloons and icecream, I must admit I have a soft spot for the chick. I've given these the Wink of Stella treatment too. It's hard to capture in photos...Can you see the sparkle?

Razzleberry Birthday Blooms


Another New Year creation, and another CaSE from the Occasions Catalogue.
This one doesn't 'bear' much resemblance to the original:

See what I did there? hahaha I crack myself up.
I felt like doing some watercolouring. I find it very amusing that the world has just discovered the therapeutic benefits of colouring in. We stampers have known about it for years! I'd much rather colour a card to give away than fill in a colouring book though.
I got a little carried away and my flower came out a little darker than I'd intended. It's had the Wink of Stella treatment and is all sparkly in real life. Fussy cutting is another activity that I find therapeutic (am I the only one??)
I've used a piece of Love Blossoms DSP for my background panel, softened with a patterned vellum overlay. The vellum stack is available for FREE with a $90 purchase during Sale-a-Bration.

Back to blogging!

It's a new year, I have new toys and I thought it was about time I got back to blogging.
Normally I'm very much a routine kind of person. It's how I live and how I get things done. In January, that all goes out the window, which is lovely, but also not very productive!!
I've been having lots of fun with my new toys from the Sale-a-Bration brochure and Occasions Catalogue. I've been designing cards for upcoming classes, but also making some cards just for fun.
I kicked off my card-making for the year with a CaSE. I always like to make use of the lovely samples in the catalogue. I took this clean and simple card on page 47:

 and made my own version:


I've added an extra piece of DSP to mine, to bring in an extra pop of colour, and used a different stamp set.
When I haven't created for a while, I like to start off simple and work my way into it. It feels good to have one 'under the belt' and gives me confidence to tackle something more elaborate.
How do you get back into it after a long break?
