No-Cut Cards

Here are a couple of the cards I did for one of my Paperific Show posters. We had to do a theme for each poster so for one of mine I made a whole range of No-Cut cards. They get their name from the fact that there is no cutting involved in putting the actual card together! I love doing these cards when I need a card in a hurry. I first saw them on Marelle Taylor's webpage a long time ago. You can see Marelle's lovely blog at this address . I do love her work and style of stamping.
These cards are very quick and easy to do - I made 15 for my poster and it was amazing how many different combinations I came up with using my stamp sets. I also had lots of fun coming up with slight variations on the same theme by changing where to put the greeting or how I tied the ribbon. I must say it was one of my most productive sessions ever!
For the two on show here I used Seaside and stamped them in More Mustard, Sahara Sand and Close to Cocoa on Confetti White card cut to A6 size. For the other card I used Fifth Avenue Floral stamped in Kiwi Kiss, Riding Hood Red and Tangerine Tango. To put the cards together you tear off the front of a folded A5 card and slide your stamped A6 piece under the flap created and adhere it in positon. I like to stick the ribbon in place and stamp the greeting before I tear off the flap.

Hope you have some fun coming up with your own No-cut cards!

Paperific Paper Expo

Hi Everyone,
Here are a couple of shots of our setup at Paperific at the Melbourne Showgrounds. We are ready for a big day of promoting Stampin'Up! From left are Susan Byers, Coral Powell, myself and Jenny Roberts. The rest of the day team were still negotiating Melbourne traffic!
We had 90 minutes to get setup and I reckon everyone did a smashing job. The team card posters look fantastic and created so many comments from customers.
Well done girls!!!!

Hi Everyone!
The last month has been soooo busy with workshops, classes and that other thing I have to do every week....... work! So sorry for being very slow in getting around to posting on here.
However I am off to a great start this month as I already have a sample made of one of the techniques I am going to teach in my Technique classes this month! The three techniques we will do this month are :- Emboss resist / Emerging Colour; Faux Shaving Cream; and Flooding Using Reinkers.
The card on the left is a sample of Emboss Resist/Emerging Colour. We will do this card or another design in the class.
