Distinktive Healing Hugs

Good Afternoon and thanks for joining us on another Freshly Brewed Projects Blog Hop with the Latte Girls.  This week we are creating with the gorgeous Distinktive Stamps. 

Freshly Brewed Projects with the Latte Girls BLog Hop

Distinktive Healing Hugs

I do love the new Distinktive Stamps from Stampin’ Up!  This new design of stamps results in a perfect realistic stamping every time.  They were designed by taking an image from a photograph. 

For my card today I’ve used the gorgeous Healing Hugs Stamp Set. 

I love how easy it is to get such a lovely image from these stamps. The rose has so much depth and definition just from inking it up and stamping it.  Same with the leaves.  

I stamped my main rose in Blackberry Bliss and the leaves are done in Old Olive. 

My background piece was stamped in Highland Heather and the leaves in Pear Pizazz.  The rose on the background piece is 2nd generation stamping. 

I wanted to give my card a vintage feel so I ran my background piece through the Big Shot with the new Subtle embossing folder after stamping. 

You can see the definition this new embossing folder gives.  It’s like an antique piece of linen! 

Thanks so much for stopping by today and hope you’ll give these new Distinktive Stamps a try. 

Bonus Days

Dont forget that we still have Bonus Days happening.  You’ll earn a $9 coupon for every $90 you spend during August.

Dandelion Wishes

Good Evening and what a day it’s been!  Today I have for you a sweet card we made in my Dandelion Wishes Class before my trip.

Dandelion Wishes Card by Leonie Schroder Independent Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Australia

Dandelion Wishes Card

I did enjoy making this card.  Starting with the Bokeh Dots Stamp which I stamped in Blushing Bride. Now I do love the Distinktive Stamps and how all the work is done for you – it’s simply a matter of inking it up and stamping it onto cardstock. 

I then stamped my Dandelion and Sentiment stamp in Versamark Ink. I then covered it in Copper Embossing powder, shook of the excess and heated the powder with my Heat Tool till it melted. 

Dandelion Wishes Card by Leonie Schroder Independent Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Australia

There is something about Heat Embossing cards that make you want to touch and feel the embossing!  

To finish off my card I added a few of the Basic Adhesive Backed Sequins.  They just added to the softness and charm of this card. 

Today has been full of all sorts of stresses and one where I should have just gone out and found a dandelion and blown them all away!  It’s a good thought now the day is done.

Firstly, we’d arranged to change providers for our NBN and I’d been advised it was happening Thursday. This was good as it meant it wouldnt interfere with me registering for On Stage or doing my Facebook Live Video this morning. 

Well they switched us over at 12.30am this morning and I go so stressed I feared I’d miss out on On Stage!  Thankfully hubby is a IT Guru and managed to get me connected! The new modem has now arrived so hubby can hook it all up when he gets home. 

Now the only thing with the changeover is I no longer have my home number, which I’ve had for over 30 years, so if you want my home number please message me and I’ll give you the new one.

Colour Your Season

Colour Your Season

I love this Bundle! It’s full of lots of elements for all Occasions … or Seasons!  For today’s project I’ve opted to go with an Autumn theme …

Blended Leaves card using Colour Your Season Bundle by Leonie Schroder Independent Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Australia

This card was lots of fun to create.  I loved colouring the leaves in all the different Autumn colours using the new Assortment of Watercolor Pencils.

My card is quite easy to pop together.  I love ‘easy’ and love to show crafty friends how to create something lovely with a minimum of fuss.

Falling Leaves Card Step by Step 

  1. Cut your card base, score and burnish.
  2. Cut your top layer slightly smaller than your card base front.  Then cut the large stitched frame from this top layer.  Using the Leaves stamp and your Soft Sea Foam Ink Pad in the top right and bottom left corner.
  3. On a piece of Shimmery White Card stock stamp the Leaves stamp twice in Jet Black Stazon.  Colour the leaves with the water colour pencils using 2 or 3 colours on each leaf. Blend colouring with an Aqua Painter.  Cut Leaves out with Paper Snips.
  4. Using your Soft Sea Foam frame as a guide place it upside down on the card base.  Stamp Sentiment in Cajun Craze Ink.
  5. Flip frame over and adhere to card base with dimensionals.
  6. Using Tombow Multipurpose Adhesive affix your leaves in and under  the frame.

Yay your card is done and ready to send!

Stitched Vases

Good Morning!  It’s a lovely sunny day here in Sydney and I thought today I’d share with you my Stitched Vases card using the Varied Vases Stamp Set and he Stitched Seasons Framelits 

Stitched Vases

Stitched Vaes card by Leonie Schroder Independent Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Australia

I love the little Varied Vases Stamp Set and this card was one from my Varied Vases Class before I left for the Cruise.  

I also love the stitched frames in the Stitched Seasons Framelits set.  They are great and have two uses.  Not only do they cut out the cut frame with stitching around the edge but they also leave a stitched border on the cardstock!  

On today’s card I ran it through the Big Shot with the blue Embossing Mat as I didnt want the centre piece cut out.  Then I cut my Soft Sea Foam frame from another piece of card to pop over the top.  I then just added my vase, flowers, leaves and sentiment to my frame. 

Stitched Vases Card by Leonie Schroder Independent Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Australia

I wanted to lift the card so I just added some iridescent sequins and a small Baker’s Twine Bow.   They finished it off perfectly dont you think?

Stitched Seasons Framelits

How cool is that little frame on the card?  Dont you love how it leaves the outside stitching on it?  

Check out the framelits .. 

You’ll get those frame in three sizes so you’ll be about to layer them or create your own little frame.  There’s also leaves, flourishes, flowers and a bow to use! 

You’ll want to get in quick to order these as they are only available during August and only while stocks last!

Painted Glass Butterfly

Good Morning …   Today’s card is a fun little card using the Painted Glass Stamp Set and reminds me of a Church window.

Painted Glass Butterfly by Leonie Schroder Independent Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Australia

Painted Glass

This stamp set is a fun one to create with and I love all the elements available in the Suite as it all coordinates so beautifully.

This was a card we made in my Painted Glass Class (say that 5 times quickly!) and while it looks involved it’s really quite easy to do.

Our round ‘window’ is created with a stitched shape circle, two of the half circle dies and a smaller stitched shape circle with the butterfly stamped inside.

I do love to put Bermuda Bay, Coastal Cabana and Pool Party together and it worked perfectly for this card.  Adding the Mango sponged edge just makes it all pop!  My card was inspired by this card by Ruth Trice – a Demonstrator from the UK

The ladies enjoyed making this card and I hope you like it too! Painted Glass Butterfly by Leonie Schroder Independent Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Australia

I’m still trying to readjust to the time and weather changes after our trip. It’s been chilly here in the mornings in Sydney – well compared to the glorious summer weather we had in Alaska and Canada!  Not sure how long before the body clock has readjusted – I still need afternoon naps and brain is a little mushy (probably nothing new really)!

Bonus Days 

Dont forget that all during August you can earn Coupons to spend in September with Bonus Days

Sponged Rooted in Nature

Good Afternoon!  I have my Sponged Rooted in Nature card for you today .. Sponged Rooted in Nature by Leonie Schroder Independent Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Australia

Sponged Rooted in Nature

I do love the Rooted in Nature Stamp Set! It’s so very versatile. Recently, in class, I shared how to created lovely backgrounds with the Sponge Brayers. To create my card I stamped my trees in Night of Navy. Then using the Sponge Brayers created the hill scene and sky.  Before sponging the Sky I popped a punched post-it circle to leave a void for my moon.  I used Coastal Cabana for the sky and Call Me Clover for the grass and hills. Sponged Rooted in Nature by Leonie Schroder Independent Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Australia Once the sky was done I removed the post-it circle and sponged over lightly so the moon had a soft look. I stamped the sentiment in Night of Navy onto Whisper White then cut it out with the Stitched Shapes Framelits.  To soften the edge of the sentiment I sponged with Coastal Cabana so it blends with the card. The sentiment circle is layered on the Shimmery Pool Party Ribbon to give this card a little more depth and texture. Looking at this card now it reminds me of many of the places we saw in Alaska and Canada.  I’d go back there in a heartbeat! This card could easily be adapted for many different Occasions. It would be great for Birthdays, Sympathy, Get Well, Christmas or to just say hello and to let people know you are thinking of them. Thanks so much for stopping by and see you latte ..

Freshly Brewed Projects with Pillow Boxes

Good Afternoon and Welcome to another Freshly Brewed Projects Blog Hop with the Latte Girls.  This week we are creating with the lovely new Pillow Boxes

Freshly Brewed Projects with the Latte Girls BLog HopPillow Boxes

I love the new Pillow Boxes!  They are cute and fun to create with.  They are perfect to decorate for all sorts of small gifts.  With them at just $8.75 for ten it makes it a very affordable way to give little gifts as well!

Now for today’s projects I’ve done something a little different.  I mean there are lots of ideas to decorate for gifts but I wanted to share a couple of other ways to use these little Pillow Boxes.

First up we have a Pillow Box Quick Shot

Pillow Box Quick Shots by Leonie Schroder Independent Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Australia

This is perfect for giving your friends a Quick Shot as a pick me up or just to say Thanks.

I snipped the front top flap off which gave me the ‘scoop’ top.  The “Thank You” comes from the Stitched All Around Stamp Set and I’ve layered it on Gold Fold and Basic Black Circles.  The Shimmery Black Ribbon is perfect for this Treat.

The second project I’m sharing today comes from the ‘I wonder if the Narrow Note Cards will fit in the Pillow Box‘ thought I had while creating the Quick Shot project.

Introducing my Pillow Box Quick Notes

Pillow Box Quick Notes by Leonie Schroder Independent Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Australia

Apparently the Narrow Note Card do fit in the Pillow Boxes! I made three little Narrow Note cards …

Pillow Box Quick Note by Leonie Schroder Independent Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Australia

Each card is stamped with a flower from the In Every Season Stamp set.  It’s stamped in Jet Black Stazon and then water coloured with the ink from the ink pads and an Aqua Painter.

Pillow Box Quick Note by Leonie Schroder Independent Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Australia

All the sentiments used on the Note Cards are from the Itty Bitty Greetings Stamp Set.  I do love the Lily of the Valley flowers and I’ve coloured the  leaves in Granny Apple Green. The flowers are coloured with the Clear Wink of Stella Brush so they remained white and are now all shimmery as well.

Pillow Box Quick Note by Leonie Schroder Independent Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Australia

I chose the Water Lily for my last card and coloured it with Lovely Lipstick.  I’ve created a little water using the Aqua Painter and some Coastal Cabana.

I wanted to keep the cards clean and simple and just the one layer. So to give it a little more character I created splats on each card using my Stampin’ Write markers.

I do hope you like the little projects I’ve created for you today and do apologise for my post being late.  I was trying the new format with WordPress and well lets just say it needs some work!

Let’s go hopping ..

Cheers with Varied Vases

Good Afternoon and welcome to another Freshly Brewed Projects with the Latte Girls and this week we are using the wonderful Varied Vases Stamp Set ..

Freshly Brewed Projects with the Latte Girls BLog Hop

Varied Vases Stamp Set & Bundle

I do love the Varied Vases Stamp Set and bundle.  It’s so fun to create sweet little cards with it and I’ve made a few as I recently had a Stamp A Stack using this bundle.

Now when we were creating with it one week we punched out a stamped vase and the way it fell on the table it looked like a goblet!  So what’s a girl to do?  Here’s my ‘Cheers’ card we made in class …

Cheers with Varied Vases by Leonie Schroder Independent Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Australia

Then it was time to create something for my Swap Card for the Alaskan Cruise.  I had so many ideas of different stamp sets and bundles to use but I wanted to do something a little different.  So I took my Cheers card as I hadnt seen any samples online using the vases as wine goblets and stepped it up a little …

Cheers with Varied Vases by Leonie Schroder Independent Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Australia

Using Artisan Textures I added some texture  behind my diamond layer – it looks a little like a wine label on a bottle doesnt it?  I then added the wine glass stain from Timeless Textures.  I do hope the ladies who received this as their swap liked it.

 

Now I had intended to get this card up in time for the Freshly Brewed Blog Hop but using the Internet on the Ship was just so slow I couldnt get anything to happen even though it said it was ‘streaming’ it didnt!  The Latte Girls were very understanding so please be sure to check out what they made for you.

Thanks so much for stopping by and be sure to contact me should you wish to grab this bundle and my Varied Vases Tutorial pack.

Freshly Brewed Projects with the Latte Girls BLog Hop

Colour Me Purple

When they announced the colours retiring with the Colour Revamp I was sad to see some of my favourite Purples go.  Then I saw the new colours and I just love all the new Purple hues.


How lovely are they all? It’s a little hard to decide which is my favourite … I think I’ll just say ‘all the purples‘ are my favourite!

Here’s what I’ve created for you …

Delicate Details with Blackberry Bliss by Leonie Schroder Independent Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Australia

  2. Lay your Delicately Detailed Laser Cut paper over the top and snip a section out to cover your Blackberry Bliss piece.
  3. Adhere the Laser Cut panel onto the Blackberry Bliss piece with either sponged Tombow Multipurpose glue or the Fine Tip Glue.
  4. Adhere this panel to your Very Vanilla Card Base.
  5. Stamp the sentiment from Detailed with Love Stamp Set in Blackberry Bliss Classic Ink and cut out with Layer Ovals Framelits.
  6. Cut a scalloped Oval from Layering Ovals Framelits from Very Vanilla.
  7. Layer your ovals and adhere with dimensionals. Adhere these to your card.
  8. Embellish with a bow made from the Very Vanilla Lace Trim and Basic Jewel Pearls.
