Video Tutorial: Falling in Love with the So Detailed Thinlit dies

We are down to the wire guys.... today is the very last day of Sale-A-Bration 2017... which means if you are still hoping to take advantage of the SAB specials you need to do it TODAY!  Orders can be placed through the ONLINE STORE until 11.45pm tonight, and then its all over!

But that doesn't mean I don't still have cute projects to show you!  Today's card doesn't actually feature any SAB products, but I have used a couple of current Occasions catalogue products that will still be around for at least a couple of months.  I just received the "So Detailed thinlit dies" this week and I couldnt wait to use them!  And of course I had to use them with the Copper Foil sheets...which is beyond beautiful with the Falling In Love Designer Series Paper.  Here's a closeup for you:

So I made a video to show how easy it is to make this lovely card, and I hope you enjoy it!  Dont forget if you decide you are ordering any time today that you will qualify for a free SAB item for every $90 you spend.  I have included a product list below which I hope is useful.

Have a fabulous day and an awesome weekend!

Last days of Sale-A-Bration 2017 - Celebrating in Style with the Birthday Blast Bundle

This was a fun card to make!  I used our "Birthday Blast" bundle to stamp the background with Versamark ink, and then embossed it in clear embossing powder.  Once heat embossed, I sponged over some Sweet Sugar plum ink in a circular motion.  The Sweet Sugar Plum glimmer paper part of our Glimmer paper Assortment pack in our Free Sale-a-Bration offering (item no. 143831). That means you can only order it free when you purchase $90 worth of StampinUp products here in Australia.  Here's a look at the colours in the pack:

Dont forget that tomorrow (March 31st) is the very LAST DAY to take up the Sale-a-Bration offers...whether that be to get free items with your purchases,  or even to join StampinUp as a demonstrator.  Right now you can get $235 worth of product for only $169 when you join.  PLUS, until tomorrow, you also get an additional TWO FREE STAMP SETS OF YOUR CHOICE when you join... but only until tomorrow. If you need more information EMAIL ME!  Or if you are ready now... just click on the JOIN MY TEAM button at the top of this page.

Enjoy today's card, and I will be back with a last SAB hurrah tomorrow!

Last Week of Sale-a-Bration 2017.... the Avant Garden Stamp Set

We are really getting down to it now.... there are only 2 DAYS of Sale-A-Bration left!  Today I had a stamp club gathering in my home studio, and we made some gorgeous egg cartons and used the glimmer paper and "Hey Chick" stamp set (you can see what we made HERE).  I also had an opportunity to demonstrate the Irresistibly Floral paper pack and how it works so amazingly with our Sponge Brayers to create stunning background pieces.

This is actually the piece I demonstrated for the girls, and I told them to make sure they checked out the blog later because they would be able to see a card I created with this piece..... so here it is!  I used it as a background for the flower from the Avant Garden stamp set, and added a little Sweet Sugar plum glimmer paper to make it sparkle just a little.  The truth is I've had a lot of fun with this stamp set over the past couple of months, but all good things must come to an end, and its time to say goodbye.

But there is still time!  If you have an order to place before the end of this month (March 2017) please keep in mind that every $90 you spend will earn you a free SAB item... and this lovely stamp set is just one of them (and the glimmer paper is another).  You can order through the ONLINE STORE or you can contact me by sending me an EMAIL.  Either way is fine... just do it before March 31st to get yourself a free set!

Here's a close up of this card.... I really love this type of background and Im sure you will more of them coming up!

Last week of Sale-A-Bration 2017... the Make-a-Medallion stamp set gets the embossing treatment!

Hello everyone!

We are in the final countdown to the end of Sale-A-Bration 2017... and so I am showcasing these awesome sets while I can, and I hope you are enjoying my posts!

Today's card features the Make a Medallion stamp set, which was part of the SAB 2nd release last month.  Its a 2-step stamp set, which means that there are 2 stamps which layer one upon the other to give a different look.  Here are the images in the set:

 and as you can see this is a FREE stamp set!  You can choose one free item for every $90 you spend, and this is one of your choices.  Who doesn't love free stuff???!

As you can see the two larger medallions in the set don't look like the one on my card... but when you layer them together they turn out like mine... isn't it cool?  I embossed the one layer in Silver, and then stamped the other in Island Indigo ink.  I've included a product link below should you wish to purchase these items for yourself.  You still have 3 days left of SAB to get what you need before it's  finished.  Click the "Shop Now" button above to order... orders are shipped straight to you, anywhere in Australia!

Here is a closer look at the embossing on this card:

I used the Classic Label punch to punch out the sentiment.. its the perfect size!

Enjoy the card and I'll be back with more tomorrow!
