Stampin'Up! Remarkable You Card

The Remarkable You stamp set is another set I have had sitting on my desk awaiting ink since this time last year when I chose it as one of my free stamp sets for recruiting during Sale-a-bration. I decided to get it as I had an idea for one of my classes using this set but unfortunately that class never eventuated.

So my challenge continues -  to use all the stamps on my desk before the next new Annual catalogue is released. I have seen many versions of watercolour pencil backgrounds so decided to give that technique a try and incorporate the Remarkable You stamp set as well.


The aim is to randomly scribble the watercolour pencils across your neutral card then blend the colour with blender pen or aquapainter.  Once dry stamp your chosen image over the top using Staz -On black ink.

The added bling is the silver metallic shapes, my new go to for when I want a bit of something extra on my cards.

I will definitely be giving this technique another try in the future. Have you tried it yet?

Wishing you a terrific day!

Cheers!

Stampin'Up! Super Duper Cards

As demonstrators with Stampin'Up! one of the benefits we receive is a magazine titled Stampin'Success. This magazine comes out quarterly and is brimming with fabulous ideas on how to use Stampin'Up! stamps, dies and embellishments. I really enjoy reading it and trying out some of the card designs in each edition.

Last quarter there was a card featured using the Super Duper stamp set from the Occasions catalogue. Here is my CASE of it.


It is a great layout and very suitable for the boys in our lives. The colours are Dapper Denim and Peekaboo Peach. I then created the same card design in  different colours - Emerald Envy and Sweet Sugar Plum. This card design would look terrific in so many different colour combinations.


The enamel shapes add that little bit of extra pizzaz to the card. Did you know they are available in metallic like the gold ones on the first card and in the 2016-2018 In Colours as well as in the Brights, Regals and Subtles colour families. They come in packs of 100 shapes for the metallics and the other colour ways come in packs of 200 shapes.

The Stampin'Up! demonstrator publication is so helpful and full of so many brilliant ideas each month that if you made every item featured you would have over 30 new cards in your stash! This is another of the terrific perks of being a Stampin'Up! demonstrator!

Have a fun day creating!

Cheers,

Janine

Falling in Love Designer Series Paper Quick and Pretty Cards

My intention when I made these cards was to create congratulations cards for new grandparents. I have received some lovely cards from friends to celebrate the arrival of our new grand daughter. I love the Falling in Love papers, they are so pretty and the pink and blue prints are perfect for boy and girl congrats cards. As a bonus these cards are very quick and easy to create.




My last post featured the elegant Falling in Love embellishments and here they are again along with the Lace Doilies also from the Falling in Love Suite of products.  The doilies are versatile as they are Very Vanilla on one side and Whisper White on the other.

The Congratulations stamp is from the So in Love stamp set. All these products are in the Occasions catalogue.

Inks used are the co-ordinating colours from the papers for the girl card Blushing Bride and for the boy card Soft Sky.

I am now prepared for our next set of friends to become grandparents!

Cheers,

Janine

Sale-a-bration Delicate Details Card

Sale-a-bration comes to an end in days now, (March 31 actually) so if you have not made an order and recived your free Sale-a-bration items you still have time.

Here's a card I created using the Sale-a-bration stamp set Delicate Details. This set has the prettiest lace detail stamps. Stampin'Up! stamps have such detailed quality I love stamping with them as I know every time I will get a beautiful detailed image.


The pretty Falling in Love embellishments are available in the Occasions catalogue as part of the Falling in Love Suite. They are so pretty!

I added some real Very Vanilla lace trim to add extra detail to this card. The sentiment is from another part of the Falling in Love Suite  - the stamp set is called, you guessed it - Falling in Love.

Inks used are Sweet Sugar Plum, Pool Party and Sahara Sand. Card stock is Whisper White, Pool Party and Sahara Sand.

If you like this stamp set make sure you get to and make a $90 Aust order in my Stampin'Up! online store. You can find the details below.

See you again soon!

Cheers,

Janine

Stampin'Up! Hostess Stamp set Pun Intended Card

The Hostess sets on offer from Stampin'Up! offer amazing value. If you look in the Annual or Occasions catalogues you will see listed the regular price for the stamp set and the price you pay when you earn Stampin'Rewards. These stamp sets are only available to customers and hostesses who have sales over $250.

For today's card I have used the Pun Intended stamp set which has some cute images as well as some witty puns to go with them.


I've chosen to stamp the be image and I've coloured the images in using watercolour pencils, then fussy cut them out and popped them on Dimensionals to add some height to the card.

The background was stamped using one of the pun stamps in the set. I added some Wink of Stella gold spatter but it does not show up well in the photo.

Some gold sequins for some necessary bling!

Do have a look at the Hostess sets - they are there waiting for you and offer amazing value for money!

Cheers!

Stampin'Up! Mixed Borders CASE card

My last post was a CASE'd card and so is this one using the set Mixed Borders. I've CASE'd the card from page 122 of the Annual catalogue and used the layout and stamp set just changed the card stock and ink colours and the embossing folder.


Such an easy way to create a card - the majority of the thinking has been done for you!
This stamp set comprises of several long border stamps but there is an allowance in the border when you stamp it for you to then stamp your greeting.

So I have switched from a Whisper White card to a Pink Pirouette one and changed the embossing folder from Lovely Lace to Sparkle.

Cheers!
