I am going to be showcasing this suite from our new ocassions catalogue at our up coming stamp camp. I have been having a lot of fun making a ton of cards and other items for display at camp.
Here is a sneak peak on some of what I have been working on. I will be able to show you more after camp (at the end of Feb.)

If you live in New Zealand and you do not have a demonstrator please contact me to receive your free copies of the latest Stampin' Up! catalogues.



Please check in again January 20

Nursery Rhymes featuring Mice were the theme of this pocket letter swap.
I had such fun making it earlier this year. It went to a pocket letter pal in Australia.

Cat Punch Art

Saturday, 21 October 2017

This was one of the cards that I taught at a recent Kids Holiday Class.
It uses the ovals framelits, two small circle punches and the blossom builder punch.

Here are the instructions:
Fold an Elegant Eggplant A5 card in half. Randomly stamp timeless texture grid stamp on background. Die cut and punch pieces you need as per photo below. Cut the smallest oval framelit from pink pirouette card. The other ovals are cut from pumpkin pie card. Dauber all pieces and stamp stripes on cat if desired. My stripes were made from a piece of cut off rubber. (See last photo).
Layer pieces together to create cat as per my finished card. Put long strings of baker's twine for the whiskers. Lay the long strings onto a small piece of exposed tape with equal amounts hanging on each side of the face. Add another piece tape on top of strings to secure. Add nose on top  of tape.
The sign measures 7.8cm x 3cm and the greeting is from the Lemon Zest stamp set.

This is a cute tri fold card that has a hidden magnetic closure.
It was one of the projects that I taught at our recent weekend stamp camp.

If you would like step by step written instructions for this project, just go to my tutorials and copy and paste from there.

Frozen Treats

Ice cream anyone?
I used the Frozen Treats framelits for this fun card but as I don't have the matching stamp set, I used a marker to add swirls and highlights to the ice-creams.
The sentiment is from an old "Happiest Birthday Wishes" stamp set.

I added extra shine onto the "swirls" with a Wink of Stella pen and onto the chocolate with the fine tip glue.



More Quilted Christmas

Ideas for using this set for cards other than Christmas...Do you like the tape measure at the bottom? It is made from a strip of grid paper and inked with crumb cake ink.
I like how a lot of the Stampin' Up! stamp co-ordinate with each other. The stitching at the top comes from the Pocketful of Sunshine Stamp set.

Quilted Christmas

The Quilted Christmas Suite is great for Christmas cards like this simple tree design. It features one of the stitched felt shapes embellishments in the middle.

I also love this Christmas card made by Rachael Knight. It features the quilt top textured embossing folder. This gives a subtle look of stitching to your card background.

Check in again in a few days time when I will post some pictures using this set for making cards for other occassions (other than Christmas).
Don't you just love the versatility of Stampin' Up! products. I do!
