Simple Washi tape card and the "Festival of Trees"

Keeping it simple today… I wanted to show you something new from our brand NEW Holiday catalogue that was released today!  I love these colours!  This is a super quick card made with the All is Calm DSP, the Festival of Trees stamp set (and matching punch) and I added a little heat embossing and some splatters from the Gorgeous Grunge stamp set.  Cute huh?  Here is the full card for you below…

Star Shaker Card

Today is little gift card made with our Star Framelits and matching Bright and Beautiful stamp set.  It was actually a little difficult to photograph… all that shiny silver foil reflects the bright pink iPhone (which is what I photograph all my projects with) a little too well.  But by putting the card on an angle I was able to minimise the reflection. If you look VERY closely you might still be able to see a hint of pink….

We have only a couple of days left to take advantage of the Big Shot bundles this month. Until the 31st August you can purchase selected bundles of stamps and matching framelits at 15% off. But what is probably more special is that these bundles are only bundles this month… which means normally you would have to purchase them separately. So if you own a Bigshot and would like to get yourself some great bargains, this is the time to do it! You can see the specials HERE, or go directly to the ONLINE STORE and choose them there and have them sent directly to you, anywhere in Australia.

You might notice a bit of a sneak peek in this card too… see all those lovely star-shaped confetti that is inside the window? They are made with an exciting new Star border punch that is coming out in our brand new Holiday catalogue that will be launched TOMORROW!!!  So check back here tomorrow and I will make sure there is a link posted for you to click on to see it.. or if you want your own please click HERE to email me and have one sent to you for free.   There's also a star embossing folder.. and I think I'll have to get that out too so that I can emboss the foil on a card like this one and make it even better.

I've also updated my class schedule over on the right hand side of this blog, so check out whats coming up!

Here's a closer pic of the card…

This class is for you if…

  • you just want some "you time" and to spend it creatively
  • you've never seen Project Life up close and want to know what the buzz is all about
  • you've already played with Project Life before and you're already addicted! (So you just want to come and play some more)
At this class I will be showing some new products (that I didn't show at the previous class) and I'm looking forward to completing some more of my own pages too :-)

Cost of the class is $25. You'll get your page protectors, use of Card kits and all other products that you wish to use on your pages too. You'll go home with several completed pages.  And of course supper/lunch too!

Today's card is to give you a taste of the cool things you can do with the Owl punch…. we'll be making a thinlit card like this one… its very simple but how cool is it??

If you'd like to come along to the class, the cost is $25 and you will make 3 different projects. However if you have already purchased the owl punch from me, then your class is only $15.  For those that are coming.. if you already own the Owl punch please bring your punch with you to the class.  At the moment I do have spots left.. so if you would like to come let me know by clicking HERE.

Flower Patch and New Colours!

I thought you might like to see one of the cards I was creating last month with my workshop and party groups :-) Such a simple idea, but I LOVE the way these colours look together!  I've used only the new Incolor range on this card… stamping flowers from the "Flower Patch" photopolymer stamp set, and punching the tag shape with the Scalloped Tag Topper punch. The background is embossed with the new Large Polka Dot embossing folder in my Big Shot.  And the ribbon at the top of the tag is some of our new stitched satin Incolor ribbons.  Super easy!  I never cease to be amazed at the whole colour co-ordination thing that makes Stampin'Up the easiest products to use.

And the best bit is that the Flower Patch set is also sold as a bundle with matching framelits.. which means that if you purchase them together you get a 15% discount! Right now we have (just until August 31st) extra BigShot bundles at 15% off… but some of these will only be available as bundles this month. After the end of the month they return to their regular prices as separate items. If you would like to see what's on offer, click HERE and then choose the "Big Shot and Bundles" category.

Looking forward to showing you more of the bundles this month :-)
