Merry Mice and Stitched Shape Framelits Card

You have to love a special and wow there is a terrific special on at the moment with Stampin'Up! To celebrate the release of the Stitched Shape Framelits Stampin'Up! have discounted by 25% selected stamp sets. One of the sets is the cute Merry Mouse stamp set in the Holiday catalogue.

My big brown box of goodies arrived yesterday with my Stitched  Shape framelits and the Merry Mouse stamp set and fortunatley I had some time spare to have a play with them. I love the effect created with the new framelits and they work beautifully with the Layering Circles framelits.


The mouse stamp set is so sweet. It was on my wish list but after purchasing so many new Christmas sets I had to draw a line somewhere but then to have it come on special at 25% discount, well I just had to buy it!!!

For this card I watercoloured the mouse using my aqua painter and marker pens. To colour this way smooch some marker pen ink onto a plastic lid and pick up the colour with your aqua painter and colour away. I like to watercolour on Shimmery White cardstock especially for Christmas cards.

I can see so many uses for these lovely new framelits and the best news is they are available from now until the next Annual Catalogue and beyond.

As for the 25% discount sets, this special is only for this month so get your order in before November 30.

Presents & Pinecones Quick Christmas Card Class

I've added a couple of quick Christmas card classes to my calendar. It's a busy month for me and I had to see how my rosters worked in with family commitments before working out class dates. I am so sorry for the late notice about classes for this month.

In my Quick Christmas Card class you will make 6 easy cards all using the same layout. The cards are pictured below.


This class is a terrific way to get some cards made for those special people in your life who appreciate a handmade card at Christmas. If you are new to cardmaking these are easy cards to create and this will be a perfect class for you to come along to for a play at stamping.

Class dates - Friday November 18 at 10am
                     Saturday November 19 at 1.30pm

Class fee - $20

To book your spot email me jannic@bigpond.com

Hope you can make it!

On Stage Inksationals ATC Team Swap

One of the fun aspects of Stampin'Up! On Stage is taking part in swaps. There are general swaps where demonstrators attending On Stage make cards/items to swap with other demonstrators. Or there are team swaps where members of a team attending On Stage swap with each other in the team. I am so lucky to have a big team of lovely demonstrators attending On Stage and we always run a team swap at what used to be Convention but is now known as On Stage Live. This year our chosen theme was ATC's ( Artist Trading Cards ).

We will be trading these on Friday night at our Team dinner. Here is a sneak peek of my ATC. I have made 30 of them and I am excited to see what ATC's I will receive in return.


Now I have to confess this is my first attempt at and ATC. It took a few attempts to come up with one I was happy with and my On Stage roomies were a big help as we bounced ideas off each other in our Messenger group. Thanks Julia, Nicole, Fiona and Sandra!!!!

There was a heap of stamping to do to create these but once I got the production line going it all went smoothly. Fussy cutting 30 butterflies did take some time but you know what it becomes quite a mindful task and I enjoyed it. The same goes for colouring all the butterflies. Just goes to show us stampers were onto something long before it became the trendy new thing to do!

See below for stamp sets and colours I used to create my ATC.

When I get home from On Stage I'll post a display of all the other ATC's created by my team.

Cheers!

Pillow gifts for Brisbane On Stage Live

We are up in sunny Brisbane, Queensland. Such a warm change from the wet and chill weather we have had back home in Melbourne. Why are we here? For Stampin'Up! On Stage Live! My team and I have been looking forward to this trip and event for months! One of the highlights will be previewing the new Sale-a-bration and Occasions catalogues and better yet, getting to play with the products from these catalogues! You just have to love being a Stampin'Up! demonstrator!!!!

My pillow gifts are from a sample that my downline Simone Bartrum created for our stand display at Paperific a couple of months ago. I loved the sample as soon as I saw it and decided yes my pillow gifts for On Stage are sorted!

The cute little boxes are Clear Tiny Treat Boxes 141699 page 176 in the Annual Catalogue. They are easily missed in the catalogue but look how cute they are! Inside are eight Christmas gift tags made from Cherry Cobbler card.




The pretty paper used comes from a Designer Series Speciality Paper pack in the Annual catalogue - "This Christmas" 141628. Aren't the tags so sweet? The tag size folded is 5x5cm. 10x5 unfolded.


The Layering Square and Layering Circle Framelits were used to cut out the paper and silver foil pieces. The 1 3/8 circle punch created the stamped sentiment piece. The stamps are from Holly Jolly Greetings 139879 page 34 Annual Catalogue. Ink is Black Memento and Smoky Slate on Very Vanilla card.
To create a pop, the silver foil sentiment piece is raised with Stampin'Dimensionals.

Punch a hole for the tag strings with the 1/8 inch hand held punch and thread through Cherry Cobbler and Garden Green Bakers Twine from the Trio pack 141999 in the Holiday catalogue.

I hope my roomies love their cute pillow gifts!

Cheers

Corner Pop-up Card using Cookie Cutter Christmas Bundle

My classes are over for this month and we had a wonderful time creating six different projects. Here is one of them - a Corner Pop-up card using the reindeer stamp from the Cookie Cutter Christmas stamp set and matching Cookie Cutter Builder punch.



I love making these cards and customers are always fascinated and intrigued to see how they are made and then once they see the creation process they are amazed at how easy it is to create. So above you can see the card set up for display.

Below is the card unfolded. The idea for the window and reindeer was CASE'd from a tag I saw on Pinterest by Tracy Elsom Great idea Tracy - thanks! The die used to cut the window frames is from Hearth & Home thinlits in the annual catalogue. The snowfall effect is from the Softly Falling embossing folder. How effective is it!


The garland stamps and hanging ornaments are from the Forever Evergreen stamp set in the Holiday catalogue page 35. The hanging ornaments were inked using Crumbcake and Real Red markers, marker to rubber technique. You can purchase these as a pair in the Holiday catalogue. Great to be able to get markers without having to buy a whole set.



The sentiment is from Stampin'Up!'s Ronald McDonald House charity stamp set - My Hero. $3 from every sale of this set goes to Ronald McDonald House Charities. The ink used is Dapper Denim.
The belly band has been wrapped in the gorgeous Real Red Stitched Edge ribbon. This ribbon is beautiful!

Here is the card all folded up ready for giving. Card used for the card base is Sahara Sand. You would never guess what is inside!


See below for all the products used to create this card. Click on the items to be taken to my online Stampin'Up! store.

Hope you enjoyed my card.
Cheers!

Janine
