Freshly Brewed Projects with Leonie Schroder Independent Stampin' Up! Demonstrator

Mini Pizza Boxes

Have you seen these Mini Pizza Boxes in the Holiday Catalogue?  Oh my gosh they are so cute and so easy to put together!

You can dress them up as much or as little as you’d like! Colour them with your brayer or Spritzers , add a belly band to dress it up or decorate with a square panel on top or simply just tie a ribbon around and add a tag.  The ideas are unlimited!

You can use them for gifting all sorts of things – cookies, candles, gift cards, jewelry – the list goes on!  The boxes have a coating inside so they are food safe – you could even make  a cookie that looks like a pizza and pop that inside!

Here’s one we made at a recent workshop and also made in Sundays Merry Little Labels class …

Mini Pizza Box Gift Box by Leonie Schroder Independent Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Australia

This little box was so fun to make and while it has lots of elements to it with the belly band, snowflakes, ribbon, bauble and tag it’s still quite easy to do!  It’s just a matter of layering the pieces.  It will make a great box for someone’s Christmas Gift and using the Belly Band means they wont need to rip it all open!

Here’s the same box with the coordinating card …

Introducing the Stamparatus!

As you know I’ve recently been in Melbourne attending the Stampin’ Up! On Stage Event.  One of the big announcements at this event was the new Stamparatus!

Stamparatus

New Stamparatus from Stampin' Up! - Reserve yours today!

Now I know there are a few Stamp Positioning tools on the market at the moment but I truly believe this new tool from Stampin’ Up! has been well designed and thoroughly thought out and has some extra features the other tools do not!

The Stamparatus will change the way you stamp, and before long, you’ll wonder how you crafted without it! Why do YOU need one? You’ll fall in love with stamping all over again when you learn everything you can do with it!

  • Make multiples with ease
  • Consistently stamp crisp, clean images
  • If you want a darker impression, apply more ink and restamp—no need to start over
  • Make fewer mistakes, saving time and money
  • Easily create 2-step, 3-step, and 4-step stamped images using reversible plates

Here’s a look at the Stamparatus …

It looks pretty amazing doesnt it?

The Stamparatus will be released in February 2018 and starting today you can reserve your own Stamparatus!  You’ll pay nothing until February 2018 but you will need a credit card to reserve yours.   The price of the Stamparatus will be $85 which is cheaper than the retail price of the other positioning tools on the market.

Also, as it will be released in February it will be during Saleabration so you’d only need to order a pack of dimensionals to earn a free Saleabration product!

Got questions?  feel free to ask me as I’m more than happy to answer them for you.

Remember to reserve your Stamparatus you’ll need a credit card and an Online Shopping account.  If you dont already have one Click here and open your Online Account today!

Click here for your step by step instructions to reserve your Stamparatus today! 

I am a tad excited about this new tool as I’ve been part of the group that has worked with Stampin’ Up! to develop the Stamparatus!

Freshly Brewed Shaker Cards

Good Afternoon and Welcome to another Freshly Brewed Projects with the Latte Girls Blog Hop.  This week we are making Shaker Cards.

Freshly Brewed Projects with Leonie Schroder Independent Stampin' Up! Demonstrator

Shaker Cards

Shaker Cards are always a favourite.  They are quick and easy and people love the interaction of them.  Even when I made this card my 20 year old had to pick it up to shake it and she had to do it more than once!  Even the big kids like them!

Here’s my card …

Shaker Card by Leonie Schroder Independent Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Australia

I am sure the Lovely Words Framelits were designed just for Shaker Cards!   This card was rather easy to do – well once I decided on the colours I wanted to use!  I wanted something fun and bright and I think these colours work with that theme!

The Lovely Inside & Out Stamp Set & Lovely Words dies come in a bundle so now is the perfect time to grab them and save yourself 10% – Shop Now & Save!

Shaker Card by Leonie Schroder Independent Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Australia

I also believe those Iridescent Sequins were made just for this card too!  I love the bright colours in this pack!

Now because my Technique Zone Tutorials have been so popular here’s another one for this week!

Now lets see what the other Latte Girls have made for you today …

Step it Up – Flirty Flowers

Good Morning! I hope you are having a wonderful day and the week is going well for you!  Today I have a quick and easy card using Flirty Flowers. I’ll show you how you can quickly and easily Step it Up!

Flirty Flowers 

Here’s a super quick and easy card done using the Flirty Flowers Stamp set …

Flirty FLowers by Leonie Schroder Independent Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Australia

This is a super quick and super easy card to make and it’s done on one of our lovely Note Cards & Envelopes.

I did trim 1cm off the right side so the strip of Colour Theory Paper shows when the card is closed.   The flower is coloured with my Stampin’ Write Markers then stamped on the card and envelope – they have to be matching right?

Flirty Flowers – Step it Up

Now while this card is sweet enough here’s a quick and easy way to step it up and make it a little more special …

Flirty FLowers Step it Up by Leonie Schroder Independent Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Australia

All I did to this card to Step it Up was to add some rhinestones and a sweet little bow using the Sheer White ribbon.  It took less than 5 minutes and just makes it so much prettier!

How nice would it be to receive this pretty stepped up card?  This card could be sent for any occasion and it’s a great one to let people know you are thinking of them.

I think in recent years we’ve moved away from sending cards in the post. We tend to send a text message or a pretty pic or meme on facebook instead.  We need to get back to creating with our hearts and hands and start sending cards in the post again!  I know I love receiving cards in the mail and I’m sure you do too!

Let’s start by making more cards and sending them in the post for no other reason than to say hello!  We could start our own #postacardtoday movement!

Year of Cheer

Hello and Welcome to another Merry Monday!  Today I have a lovely little gift idea for you using the Year of Cheer Suite.

Year of Cheer Suite

gift box using Year of Cheer Suite by Leonie Schroder Independent Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Australia

This is one of our sweet A6 Acetate Boxes I’ve embellished to create a sweet gift box with some cards in it for a gift.

This gift box is super quick and easy and is done by running it through your Big Shot with the Wonderland Embossing Folder.   Then to dress it up I’ve simply tied the gorgeous new Metallic Edge Ribbon around it.

This gift box will hold 4 cards and envelopes so it makes the perfect gift!

Cheers to the Year by Leonie Schroder Independent Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Australia

This card is quick and easy and just uses a few circles pieces of Champagne Foil,  Specialty Designer Series Paper and the Winter Wonder Embossing Folder and some Shimmery White Cardstock.

Sparkle using Year of Cheer Suite by Leonie Schroder Independent Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Australia

This card is fun and sparkly and just what you need for Christmas!  The sentiment comes from the Add a Little Glitz stamp set and goes so well with the gorgeous foil paper from the Year of Cheer Specialty Designer Series Paper pack and a gold foil snowflake.  I’ve also used the wonderful Year of Cheer Specialty Washi Tape.

Winter Wonder Greetings by Leonie Schroder Independent Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Australia

I love this card! I’ve embossed the Winter Wonder Embossing Folder onto Champagne Foil cardstock then layered with vellum, specialty Year of Cheer Designer Series paper and Gold Foil cardstock.

Year of Cheer Card of Joy by Leonie Schroder Independent Stampin Up Demonstrator Australia

The fourth card in my boxed set is this Joy card I shared previously.  How sweet is that paper from the Year of Cheer Specialty Designer Series paper pack?

Maybe you’d like to dress up your gift box a little differently to the one above?

Boxed Set using Year of Cheer Suite by Leonie Schroder Independent Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Australia

Simply use a strip of the Year of Cheer Specialty Designer Series Paper to make a belly band and tie the Metallic Edge Ribbon around and add some Gold Mini Sequin trim and you are done!

How about a special bundled price for the products you’ll need to make this set?

Technique Zone – Black Emboss Resist

Good Morning!  I have another technique for you today and it was a new one to me and it’s the Black Emboss Resist Technique.

Black Emboss Resist Technique

I hadnt seen or heard of this technique until it was tasked to me and after a couple of goes I mastered it and made it my own.

Here’s my card …

Black Emboss Resist Tranquil Tulips by Leonie Schroder Independent Stampin Up Demonstrator Australia

Dont those tulips look striking against that black background?

Now I will admit that this was a technique that when I first saw how it was done I wasnt sure I’d like it and to be honest looked a little too fussy for me.  I persevered and after refining it I ended up loving it!

THe original tutorial I saw used a Black Marker to colour the background but every time I tried that it looked horrid.  Then I tried the Memento Jet Black Ink Pad direct to the card and yes that gave a lovely smooth finish to my card and those tulips just popped!  I was happy again and now this technique and I are good friends!

Please dont be turned off but give this technique a try.  I even had this as one of the techniques for my technique class and the ladies loved it. Like me they were dubious at first but were pretty impressed with their finished cards.

Want the free Tutorial? 

Here it is …

I do hop you give this technique a try and please be sure to share your creation!

Freshly Brewed Christmas Trees

Good Afternoon!  It’s time for another Freshly Brewed Projects from the Latte Girls and this week the theme is Christmas Trees

Freshly Brewed Projects with Leonie Schroder Independent Stampin' Up! Demonstrator

Christmas Trees

The thing about Christmas is we all celebrate it different ways yet we all have a Christmas Tree and sometimes we dont all have Christmas Stamps but most of us will have a stamp set that includes a tree image in it.  So I thought I’d use a regular stamp set to do a Christmas Tree card  …

Topiary Christmas by Leonie Schroder Independent Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Australia

My card today uses the super versatile Vertical Greetings Stamp Set.  I love this little tree and it really wasnt hard to turn it into a Christmas Tree with the help of In Color Glitter Acrylic Shapes and the Iridescent Sequin Assortment.  Those little sequins really make that tree sparkle!

Stampin’ Up! On Stage

Today is the day we left for our Road Trip and are hopefully are settling into our Apartment in Melbourne as this post goes online.  I will be checking the blog and email for messages over the next week but not as often as I would when I’m home.  So if you do need to ask anything or need me for anything else please email me here and I’ll get back to you as soon as I can.  You could also text me on my mobile if it’s important.

I will be back late on 15th November so back working at my craft desk from the 16th November.

Now lets head over and see what Libby and Sandie have made for us this week …

Grateful for You

Good Afternoon!  Today was my Stampin’ Blends Facebook Live Class.  In the class I showed how to do some simple blending with the Stampin’ Blends and made this Grateful for You card using Remarkable You Stamp Set.

Grateful for You

Grateful for You Card by Leonie Schroder Independent Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Australia

I stamped my leaves in Memento Jet Black and then coloured with the Old Olive Light & Dark Stampin’ Blends Markers. Then to add some highlights on the leaves and coloured sections in the light Daffodil Delight Marker.

I love the Remarkable You Stamp Set and will be a great one for using your new Stampin’ Blends on with the lovely big flowers …

Remarkable You Stamp Set from Stampin' Up!

Now I must get back to sorting, packing and lists!  It’s a busy day here today as we are off to Melbourne in the morning for Stampin’ Up! On Stage on Friday and Saturday.

Have a great week and remember to contact me if you have any question or need any help.
