Designer Series Paper Card Ideas

This month Stampin'Up! have an amazing offer on their beautiful Designer Series Papers. Buy any three packs of Designer Series paper and receive a fourth pack of your choice for FREE! Now that is a very cool offer!

I have a stand at Picture to Page Papercrafts Show coming up on October 15 - 16 so I created these cards to show off a few of the lovely papers on offer and also to offer a quick and easy card layout. Here are the first five.

Above is the Candy Cane Lane Deisgner Series paper 141981

This is Presents and Pinecones Designer series Paper 141986

Number three is Blooms and Bliss Designer series Paper 141654

 Number four uses By the Shore Designer Series Paper 141640

Lucky last for this post is Moroccan Designer Series paper 141645

The card size is A5 folded in half and the strips of Designer Series paper are 3.1 x 14.3 cms. I've added a bit of something to each one to jazz them up a bit. Some washi tape or a punched image or some enamel shapes. All Stampin'Up! of course!!!!

I hope you like them and get good use from such a quick and easy layout.

Pop of Pink DSP Stampin'Up! Card

When stuck for inspiration I will often look back at cards I have created in the past to see if I can rejig them with current Stampin'Up! products. I made a card last year using the hexagon punch and layering different DSP pieces on the card front around a punched out hexagon. I really wanted to recreate this card using some of the lovely new Designer Series Papers in this years annual catalogue.

After a bit of experimentation I was finally happy with the result I got from using the Layering Squares framelits and Pop of Pink Speciality Designer series papers. What do you think?

 Here is a closer view of the punched out section. The folded card base is Basic Black with a Whisper White layer under the popped up Melon Mambo card front layer.

The sentiment came from Perfectly Wrapped stamp set. The size of the framelit I used was 1 1/2 inches.

You can see my hexagon version here.

Thanks for stopping by my blog and I hope to be back with more creations soon.

Paperific Opens Tomorrow!

Today members of my team and I spent a lovely time setting up our Stampin'Up! stand at Paperific Paper Expo at the Melbourne Showgrounds. The show opens tomorrow and runs until Sunday.

We are running three different classes, a make and take table PLUS we have our very own Shop selling retired stock that is all brand new. Us stampers are notorious for buying lots of beautiful products that we never get around to using. So now you can benefit by coming along to our shop and bagging yourself a bargain or finding that elusive stamp set or papers that you wish you had bought when they were available but left your run too late!

Here is our stand, an amazing creation built by my team girls Lorinda and Rose. Awesome job ladies!

Oh and we have the brand new Holiday catalogue available as well! Looking forward to seeing you at Paperific at some stage over the next three days.

Thoughtful Branches - August Only release from Stampin'Up!

It has been awhile since I have even opened my blog let alone made any entries. My absence has been due to my Mum passing away in May and with her leaving us my creative spirit left as well.

However it did resurface this week after I had completed a day on my Inksationals Stampin'Up! team stand at the Melbourne Craft & Quilt Show. Being surrounded my lovely downline and all their fabulous creations I felt the need to get inky again. As we needed some card samples on the stand to show off the new upcoming Stamp set "Thoughtful Branches" I made that my mission. Create a card from scratch, no CASEing allowed and I did! I enjoyed being creative,doing something I love and playing with a totally new stamp set.

Here it is! What do you think?

It's a bit of a rushed photo as I was so pleased to be stamping again I had to fire off a photo to my Facebook Team page. I did paint the petals with a clear coat of Wink of Stella but the pic does not show it up very well.

This pretty new stamp set and matching thinlits are an exclusive August only release from Stampin Up! Be sure to check in in August to see more of this bundle. You can order it from me by email or go to my online store and create your order there.

Products used for the card are Emerald Envy, Sweet Sugarplum and Whisper White card.
Sweet Sugarplum, Emerald Envy and Early Espresso inkpads.
Thoughtful Branches  and Beautiful Branches Thinlit dies, Big Shot
1 1/4 inch circle punch
Wink of Stella Clear Glitter pen
Playful Palette washi tape

I can't guarantee when the mojo will resurface completely but hopefully it will be soon.

Best wishes
