Rose Wonder

Hello again . I'd like to share with you some cards I created using the Rose Wonder stamp set and matching thinlits set , Rose Garden . 
This card was heat embossed in White and then watercoloured using Soft Sky and Wild Wasabi inks . It is a relatively easy card to put together and I love the soft colours .

I have also watercoloured this card using Rose Red and Old Olive and die cut in thick white cardstock , placed this over the card and cut around it . It may be helpful to trace around the shape first . Take care with placement , ensuring that the leaves are placed at each edge as shown or your card will be a little wonky - ask me how I know !

This is the card front I began with  when I attemptied to create the card above but I didn't realise how important placement was so not to worry l salvaged my beautiful watercoloured piece  by cutting it out using paper snips and adhering it to a Kraft card front . I have used Watermelon Wonder and Old Olive for this card . The card base is Watermeon Wonder . 

This card was cased form the very talented Patty Bennet . I have sponged onto the crushed Curry SAB DSP , Perfectly Artistic . Then I have placed the Calypso Coral and Mossy Meadow die cut over the top 
Last of all could well be my favourite ! I cased this from the Artisan design team and I really love how it turned out . Colours used are Balckberry Bliss , Mossy Meadow and Craft cardstock .😀

So happy !

Hi again I'm back with some more samples from the O . C . When I saw the array of dies in this catalogue I immediately remembered how much fun it was too dry emboss with the ornaments die from the Holiday Catalogue . I couldn't wait to see what I could come up with and here are two cards created using this technique .

It was just a matter of placing the flowers and leaves until I was happy with the layout . You need your crease pad to achieve this effect - place it on top instead of your top plate and use the platform in the closed  position . I then die cut some leaves and a flower to complement my card .

The next card uses the Bloomin ' Hearts die and is fairly self explanatory . I die cut some extra flowers that come with this die from Black glimmer paper from the H. C - get some quick before the catalogue ends !

 Then I had a play around with the hearts die and paper stack and created the next two cards . 

Lastly I started to copy Kylie Bertucci 's card which puts a different spin on this set when I discovered a card front I'd decided didn't match my previous design so used it instead because it suited this card just fine ! I hope you like my designs . 😀

Occasions Catalogue and SAB

Hi Stampers ,
I guess everyone is busy preparing for the festive season . I was surprisingly well organised this year , managing to have my cards posted out about 2 weeks ago . I have received some lovely hand made Christmas cards from friends and clients which I will be showing on my blog after Christmas . My ladies are so creative it's  so lovely to see !
I have had the opportunity in the last few days to have a play with some of the products form the new catalogue which begins on 5 th January along with SAB . Don't know what I mean by SAB ? Sale-a-Bration is the one time of the year when S. U bring out a mini SAB catalogue filled with exclusive products you get to choose one for free with every $90 you spend , before postage . Pretty cool right ?
This year's products are awesome and I had so much trouble trying to choose because I wanted them all ! Why do I get to play before you do ? It's one of the many benefits of becoming a demonstrator ! I get to order from the new catalogue one month before the catalogues go live so that I can create samples for my customers to see at the next workshop or class . If you'd like to join my fantastic team contact me for more information . Also if you don't have your new catalogues yet I have plenty on hand so just contact me to organise to collect your copy .
Now to the cards , today I'm going to showcase cards created using the Going Global and Sky Is The Limit stamp sets along with the World Travler TEF and Going Places DSP stack . These sets work really well together along with some of the sets in the AC including the Project Life Lets Get Away set. 
This card was easily put together using the Watercolour Wash Background stamp . I love how it turned out .

Then I played around with inking the embossing folder which turned the sea blue ! I've used Lost Lagoon here onto Sahara Sand CS . A quick and easy male card ! That's what we like right !
I love it mounted onto our Red Foil paper too !

For this next card I've combined the SAB set The Sky is the Limit with the TEF . this time I've inked the other side of the TEF so that the land parts turn black and I've also again used Sahara Sand C. S. Then I just stamped the plane image using Memento Black ink into Sahara Sand and cut it out with my circle framelits along with a B. Black Matt ! Done ! Another quick and easy card !

Now for a feminine touch see how I prettied this one up ! The Crumb Cake DSP is from the Love Blossoms DSP stack in the O.C and also available in the O. C is that gorgeous Blushing Bride new glimmer paper !  Card base is Blushing Bride and I've use Blushing Bride and Crumb Cake inks . A few gold sequins and some tiny drops of glue using the Fine Tip Glue Pen then a sprinkle with gold glitter added a final touch of class .

These next two cards use the  Going Places DSP and are cased directly from the catalogue . I've substituted some retired Crushed Curry ribbon as I did not have the ribbon used in the cattie .

 So there's you little sneak peak for today and I'm getting right back into it now ! So many new toys so little time !
Remember classes resume on Thursday January 7 th at 9.30 am until 12 pm and next class is at 1.30 pm until 4 pm . After this first class we will be going back to Sunday classes , Scrapbooking begins on the 17 th January at 1 pm  and I'm taking bookings now .
Off to play !
