Occasions Catalogue 2015 - Big On You

Hello Again!
Well I am getting slack - not blogging everyday, I do have a good excuse. I have been extremely busy with classes, wedding invites & debutante invites.
I had a free hour so I thought I would make a quick card.
I have only used this set once and thought I better have another go at it.
I love Blues and Black so I stamped onto Vellum with Versamark then heat embossed in White. I adhered this panel to a piece of Whisper White stamped using the Something Lacy background stamp in Black.
For the base I have stamped the Something Lacy with Versamark and Clear Embossed.

I hope you like this card.


Guess What!!
There are four new products being released in the Saleabration Catalogue on March 1st.
Remember to get these FREE products all you have to do is spend $90 on anything in the Occasions or Annual Catalogue.

Occasions Catalogue 2015 - Guy Greetings

Hi All!

Do you find making cards for the men in your life hard? Well I certainly do but with this new set "Guy Greetings" from the occasions catalogue I am finding it a lot easier. There are 22 stamps in this set and I find they are awesome.
Check out this standing Z fold card which amazingly created in about 1/2 an hour, now how great is that.


Measurements for this card:
Base:
One 4-1/4" x 11" piece of Always Artichoke card stock for base
One 4" x 5-1/4" piece of DSP for inside base
One 4" x 3-1/4" Very Vanilla card stock for inside sentiment
2 x 1-3/8 circles punched out & glue together for strength
Front Panel:
One 4-1/2" x 3-3/8" Lost Lagoon card stock
One 4-1/4" x 3" Early Espresso card stock
One 4" x 2-3/4" Very Vanilla card stock


Base Score lines:
Score at 5 1/2" then flip over and line up at the 1/4" mark on score board an score at 3" to create your Z Fold

To add the circle, line up to the middle at the top and add a brad to hold to base.
To make car stand up, first layer - Adhere Lost Lagoon to lower part on folded base, then with the Earl Espresso adhere using dimensionals that way there is a gap to slide circle into.
Decorate as you wish


I hope you like this card

Oh I was excited about this one as I LOVE making Exploding Box Cards!!!
I have been busy the last few day's on Debutante & Wedding invitations, also getting ready for markets on Sunday. When this lovely lady requested A Wedding Exploding Box card I was more than happy to do something different to what I had been doing all week.
I knew I had to use the new stamp set "For the New Two" on it. Also featured on card is the gorgeous "Cheers to Love" from the annual catalogue.
And yes I have been slack not blogging everyday but my customers come first sorry!

Anyway I hope you like my creation and will see you all tomorrow

Occasions Catalogue 2015 - Artisan Embellishment Kit

Morning all!

Quick post today as I am meant to be getting ready for a class, it's like me to leave things till the last minute.
On these cards I have used the little Die cut panel from the Artisan Embellishment Kit available from the Occasions Catalogue. You get 2 in the pack and I previously used one on a card and new I was saving this one for some reason. 
Credit for this technique goes to Patty Bennett which I seen her post on Stampin Cafe.

Lay the Die cut on to surface you want covered and lightly sponge over to get the beautiful Rose's background.

I hope you like these cards!

Shabby Chic Flower Shop

Hi again everyone!
Today I wanted to make a shabby chic card and started out making the flowers in Blushing Bride, I actually don't know how it came about but it switched up to Marina Mist.

I so love playing with flowers and when a great company like Stampin Up have matching stamp sets and punches it makes it so much easier!

Below you will find a brief product list of the main items used to make this creation.

I hope you like this card.

Occasions Catalogue 2015 - Love Is Kindness

G'day!
Yes I have been MIA for a couple of day's sorry, but I wasn't feeling the best. Well I am certainly back on track this morning and have made three different cards for you today using the same stamp set. 
With Mother's Day coming up I thought I would make these cards, can also be used for Birthday's. 
Love Is Kindness is a gorgeous stamp available from the Occasions catalogue till 31st March 2015 so be sure you don't miss out!

I hope you like these cards!

On this card I have stamped two images and fussy cut around both, coloured with Blendabilities. I then layered one behind the first to add extra flowers. Background is stamped using the Dictionary stamp on a piece of Basic Gray for main card and Smoky Slate for flower piece.



On this one I have heat embossed in White, background for main card is Something Lacy heat embossed in Black




I love how this turned out. I have heat embossed in White then coloured the outline with Blendabilities

Occasions Catalogue 2015 - Hello You Thinlits

Hello You!

Well I never want to buy any sort of word thinlits or intricate dies as I always have trouble getting them to release and they end up wrecked.  
I had seen youtube videos about the Dryer Sheet technique and yes it worked a treat but here in my part of the country I could only find scented ones and they tend to leave a film on both card stock and acrylic plates. 
Then I heard about using bubble wrap and oh my goodness this is super easy.
Hence I am not deterred in buying these "Hello You" thinlits and I love them!

I hope you like this card


These are the words in the pack

Occasions Catalogue 2015 - Berry Basket


Hi All, me again...Who likes Hot Air Balloons, me but I wouldn't go up in one - scared of heights lol

I wanted to make to something thing different and when I seen the Berry Basket from the Occasions catalogue I knew exactly what I wanted to make. I love how my Softer tone Hot Air Balloon turned out - although someone will eventually make a better version ;) Here you will find my first and second attempt - second is better


I did cheat a little by using my Brother scan & cut machine to cut the balloon shapes as Stampin Up don't have framlits the size I wanted. You will need 8 of these shapes, sponge then fold all of them in half. Glue each half together leaving the last one open to thread ribbon through, then glue together. Punch a small hole half way up on every second fold to thread ribbon to connect basket.


Cut out and assemble the Berry Basket. Stamp & cut all the balloons from the Balloon Bash stamp set, using clear acetate adhere to bottom of basket using mini glue dots. Now decorate as you wish.


I hope you like this project!



This is the first attempt!  Arghh




Second attempt turned out much better, also figured out how to get a better 
shape for the balloon

You want to make some really quick easy cards get your hands on this paper stack "Stacked with Love" it's just gorgeous. 
Then throw in the "Big on You" stamp set and you are all set.
To be truthful I find it hard to do quick cards (and male ones lol) but this was so easy and it had to be because I didn't want to miss a day of blogging.
I have lot's in the works at the moment and really want to get back to it so I can show you guys!

Don't forget to check back on Sunday for our Crazy Crafters Blog Hop
