Just For You (Birthday Blooms/Stampin’ Up!)

Hi Everyone, the Birthday Blooms stamp set is still one of my favourite in the current 2016-2017 Annual Catalogue. I have made a LOT of cards using this stamp set. I have posted some of my card designs in earlier posts but there are a lot more which are just variations of the same design. I’ve decided to share them all over the next few posts as I think they go a long way to showing how just a different sentiment stamp or a change in the colours used, creates variety. Don’t forget that we end up sending the cards to different people so it doesn’t matter how similar, or different, they are. Just do what you love!

So let’s get started.

Here’s the first card…

Materials used: Stamps – Birthday Blooms (140658), Watercolor Wings (139424); Cardstock – Knights Smooth, American Crafts; Memento Black Ink, Smoky Slate Classic Stampin’ Pad; Wink of Stella: Clear; Rhinestones and Copic Markers.

Materials used: Stamps – Birthday Blooms (140658), Endless Thanks (138796), Diagonal Stripe (141917); Cardstock – Knights Smooth, American Crafts; Memento Black Ink, Smoky Slate Classic Stampin’ Pad; Wink of Stella: Clear; Rhinestones and Copic Markers.

I hope the above cards have encouraged you to dig out your favourite stamp set and play. Vary a few features such as the colour or sentiment and just see where you end up.

The Retiring List is Here! (Stampin’ Up! 2016/2017 Annual Catalogue)

With the release of the 2017/2018 Annual Catalogue coming up very soon, it is regrettably the time of the year when Stampin’ Up! releases the list of retiring products. Whilst it is sad to see some of our favourites leaving, thankfully there is still enough time to stock up on items we might need (such as In-Color re-inkers) or just a few things which have been on our wishlist for a while now. Just remember, stocks are available only while they last so do not hesitate to get in quickly if you really need or want something. I’d hate for you to be disappointed. Some items may be discounted so you may also be able to snag a bargain!

Here’s a list of the retiring items – download the Retiring_List_SP.

You can order from my online shop at www.stampersworkshop.stampinup.net

Remember: All retiring items are available while supplies last and will be discontinued after 31 May.

Happy Stamping!

I Hope Your Day Is As Sweet As You Are (Cool Treats Bundle from the Occasions catalogue)

Hi Everyone,

A very quick and simple card to share today using the Cool Treats bundle, once again, from the Occasions catalogue. As you can tell I love this set! A little trick for spacing the ice cream evenly is to use a piece of Press’n Seal by Glad. Simply space the images across the card. When you are happy with how it looks, take a piece of Press’n Seal and lay it over the top. This will grab the images. Lift up. Add adhesive to the images and press them down again. Rub over the images to ensure they are stuck in place and gently remove the Press’n Seal. Voila! They are exactly where you placed them!

Here’s the card…
I Hope Your Day Is As Sweet As You Are
Materials used: Stamps – Cool Treats; Dies – Frozen Treats Framelits, Lots of Labels Framelits; Cardstock – Crumb Cake, Whisper White; and Stamp Pads – Chocolate Chip, Crumb Cake, Peekaboo Peach, Pool Party, Watermelon Wonder.

Thanks for stopping by today! If you are interested in any of the items used to create this card, please visit my online shop at www.stampersworkshop.stampinup.net.

Don’t forget Sale-A-Bration is still on – only a few days remain!

Happy Stamping!

You’re the Cherry to My Sundae (Cool Treats Bundle from the Occasions catalogue)

Hi Everyone,

The Cool Treats stamp set and framelits die bundle remains one of my favourite bundles in the Occasions catalogue (pages 32-33). The card I am sharing today uses products from this bundle and the coordinating Designer Series Paper. It is a simple card design. The only really fiddly bit was putting all the sprinkles on the top of the ice cream (and I’m sorry if you now want ice cream! lol).

Here’s the card…
You’re the Cherry to my Sundae
Materials used: Stamps – Cool Treats; Dies – Frozen Treats Framelits, Lots of Labels Framelits; Designer Paper – Tasty Treats Specialty Designer Paper; Cardstock – Crumb Cake, Whisper White; and Stamp Pads – Chocolate Chip, Crumb Cake, Peekaboo Peach, Pool Party, Watermelon Wonder.

If you would like to make your own version of this card, please visit my online store (www.stampersworkshop.stampinup.com) to purchase the items you need. Don’t forget Sale-A-Bration is still happening (until the 31st March, 2017) so every qualifying order of A$90.00 or more will enable you to choose a free item from the Sale-A-Bration catalogues.

Stampin’ Up! Ink Colour Swatch

Hi Everyone, If you are like me, you *try* to keep your supplies as organised as possible. It isn’t always easy, though, is it? In an attempt to keep track of the ink pads I have purchased (and make it really clear as to which ink pads I still need to get), I created a colour chart. It is a two-page pdf which I printed up on whisper white cardstock. Taking a small solid stamp, I stamped out each of the ink colours I currently own. As well as providing me with a catalogue of my inkpads it also gives me a pretty visual reference. If I am unsure of which colour I might need for a particular project I can grab my colour swatch and see all the ink colours at a glance.

I have uploaded a copy of this colour chart in the Resources section of my site. Please feel free to download it and use it for your own reference.

Stampin’ Up! Colour Swatch Chart -2016/2017

And finally, just a quick reminder that Sale-A-Bration is coming to an end on 31 March, 2017. If you have been thinking of joining the Stampin’ Up team, now is the time! And don’t forget that every purchase over A$90 entitles you to a free item from the Sale-A-Bration catalogue. So many lovely things in that catalogue too. Please check out this page for more information, or email me if you would like to join my team.

Thanks for stopping by today! Have a great day!

Happy Stamping!

More Cards using the You’ve Got This Stamp Set (2016/2017 Annual Catalogue)

Somebody stop me! I just cannot stop using the You’ve Got This stamp set from the 2016/2017 Annual Catalogue. Today’s cards are, once again, variations of the same theme but I hope you will enjoy seeing the different looks you can create. The cards are very simple to recreate and if you like colouring, you will love this stamp set! You might notice some of the cards are similar to cards I’ve previously posted. That’s okay! Don’t be afraid to try card designs you’ve previously tried but mix up the stamps you use, as well as the colours and embellishments. Okay, let’s get started!

Here’s the card…
You've Got This
You’ve Got This
Materials used: Stamps – You’ve Got This, Diagonal Stripe Background; Stampin’ Write Markers – Melon Mambo, Wild Wasabi, Soft Suede; Black inkpad; Cardstock – Whisper White, Black; Wink of Stella and Rhinestones.

By changing the sentiment and the colours used to finish the card, you have a “same, but different look”.

Here’s the card…
Good Things are Going to Happen
Good Things are Going to Happen
Materials used: Stamps – You’ve Got This, Diagonal Stripe Background; Stampin’ Write Markers – Tempting Turquoise, Wild Wasabi, Daffodil Delight; Black inkpad; Cardstock – Whisper White, Black; Wink of Stella and Rhinestones.

Let’s change things up slightly. This time, let’s highlight the flowers with Smoky Slate. You could use a softer shade of gray or even a blue shade to highlight the images. You could also soften the edges to have it fade away. I also decided not to centre the stamped panel just to be a little different.

Here’s the card…
I'm Here for You
I’m Here for You
Materials used: Stamps – You’ve Got This; Stampin’ Write Markers – Melon Mambo, Wild Wasabi, Soft Suede, Smoky Slate; Black inkpad; Cardstock – Whisper White, Melon Mambo, Black; and Rhinestones.

 

Next up is a super simple card! I’ve used one stamp pad to ink all the images, including the sentiment. Then I’ve used just one marker to colour all the flowers. By adding a little of the clear Wink of Stella to the image you give it a little shimmer to make it a bit more interesting. So simple! You can certainly add additional colours, shading, embellishments, etc, but don’t ever feel like you have to!

Here’s the card…
Wishing You A Very Happy Birthday
Wishing You A Very Happy Birthday
Materials used: Stamps – You’ve Got This, Big on Birthdays; Stampin’ Write Markers – Melon Mambo; Classic Stampin’ Pad – Chocolate Chip; Cardstock – Whisper White, Melon Mambo; and Wink of Stella.

The next two cards are based on other favourite designs of mine and I will have many, many more cards like this to share soon. Once I get started colouring, I usually end up making lots of these cards.

First up, let’s change up the colour palette.

Here’s the card…
Happiest of Birthdays to You
Happiest of Birthdays to You
Materials used: Stamps – You’ve Got This, Birthday Blooms; Stampin’ Write Markers – Wisteria Wonder, Wild Wasabi, Smokey Slate; Black inkpad; Cardstock – Whisper White, Wisteria Wonder; and Rhinestones.

And last card for today, is one I have just finished. I LOVE it!

Here’s the card…
You've Got This
You’ve Got This
Materials used: Stamps – You’ve Got This; Stampin’ Write Markers – Melon Mambo, Chocolate Chip, Smoky Slate; Classic Stampin’ Pad – Chocolate Chip; Craft Stampin’ Pad – Whisper White; Embossing Powder – White; Cardstock – Whisper White, Black; and Rhinestones.

I hope this inspires you to dig into your floral stamp images and colour away!
