Delightfully Detailed Suite

This is one of those Suites that you fall in love with the very first time you see it!   When I first saw the Laser Cut Specialty Paper it truly was love at first sight!

We had lots of fun last weekend at my Delightfully Detailed Class.  We made a few different cards and this sweet layout …

Delightfully Detailed Layout by Leonie Schroder Independent Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Australia

This was a fun layout to create using the gorgeous laser cut Designer Series Paper.   I cut a couple more sections of flowers and placed one under and to the left of the main layer.

Also, to the bottom right of the main layer I placed it on top of the corner.  The beauty of this paper is one side is white and the other side is vanilla so you can choose what works best with your project.

I’ve used the white side on the top of the Grapefruit Grove piece and flipped the flowers for the vanilla on the white sections.  This helps the flowers to pop a little and not get lost in the white of the background.

The layout was inspired by this sample in the catalogue ..

I do hope you like what I’ve done for you today as much as the ladies did making their layouts on Sunday.

Thanks so much for stopping by today and see you latte ..

Floating Petals

Good Morning – I hope you are keeping warm. Winter is surely here and my poor body is feeling it – Winter and Fibromyalgia are not a good mix.  Let me warm you up with my sweet Floating Petals card ..

Floating Reinker Technique with Beautiful Day by Leonie Schroder Independent Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Australia

Last Month for my Stamping Technique Basics Classes we covered Heat Embossing. Each Wednesday we covered a different Heat Embossing Technique with one being the Floating Reinkers Technique.

Floating Reinker Technique

The Floating Reinkers Technique is such a fun technique to do and while it can take time to try you can speed up the drying time by using your Heat Tool.

Floating Reinker Technique steps

  1. Choose a good lined image with sections that will pool water easily
  2. Stamp your image in Versamark on Water Colour Paper, cover with embossing powder, shake of excess and heat set till all areas are melted.
  3. using an Aqua Painter drop water into the sections of your image till it ‘pools’
  4. using your Aqua Painter pick up ink from a reinker and drop into pooled sections and let the ink flow naturally.
  5. Add more colours to get a variegated look.
  6. Leave to dry or use your Heat Tool to speed up the drying
  7. Cut out image (if desired) and complete card.

Freshly Brewed Nature’s Poem

Good Afternoon and thanks for stopping by for today’s Freshly Brewed Projects from the Latte Girls Blog Hop.  Today it’s all about Nature/Outdoors and I’ve created a card using the Nature’s Poem suite

Freshly Brewed Projects with the Latte Girls BLog Hop

Nature’s Poem

Nature’s Poem is a wonderful suite full of many elements to create gorgeous projects and home decor.

Today I’ve created for you a Triptych Card using the Rooted in Nature Stamp Set ..

Triptych Leaves using Nature's Poem by Leonie Schroder Independent Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Australia

This card was rather fun to create and I love the spread of leaves – reminds me of walking in the bush.  Hmm I should diffuse some Idaho Blue Spruce or Australian Blue Oils for the full forest experience!

The ladies at class really loved making this card and were very impressed at how easy it was to create and how lovely they all turned out.

To create your Triptych …. 

  1. Cut your Very Vanilla 9.5cm x 13.5cm and randomly stamp your four different leaves in four different greens – I used Soft Seafoam,  Pear Pizzazz, Old Olive and Mossy Meadow.
  2. Using the end of a marker flick against cap to create random splatter on your card.
  3. Cut your vanilla piece into three 4.5cm strips and layer onto your Mossy Meadow Layer ( 14.3cm x 10cm)
  4. Adhere this panel to your Old Olive card base with dimensionals
  5. Add Sentiment and Twine to finish card

This is such a great card that you could send for any occasion and you could also use different colours as well.  I’m thinking blues, greys and even autumn colours!  You could even make a whole set and give them as gifts.

Here’s what you’ll need to make this card … 

 

The Triptych Technique is a fun one to make and you could even use some of our patterned papers.  I’m thinking this may also look good with three small canvases lined up as well.  You could hang them side by side or even adhere them to a board or in a frame!

I hope you enjoy doing today’s Freshly Brewed Projects with the Latte Girls Blog Hop and seeing what the girls have made for you this week.

Thanks so much for stopping by and see you latte

Embossed Flourishes

Good Afternoon! I have Embossed Flourishes card for you today using the new Embossing Mats with the gorgeous Flourish Thinlits Dies …

Embossed Flourishes

Embossed Flourishes by Leonie Schroder Independent Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Australia

Today is my Aunt’s birthday and she’s recently also had heart surgery so I wanted to make her a pretty card to celebrate her and cheer her up so I made her this Embossed Flourishes card.

It was also the perfect opportunity to use the new Embossing Mats with our Thinlits dies. To share how I made this card  I demonstrated how I made it today on my Facebook Live Video on my Stamp A Latte Business Page.

Here’s the Video for you …


In my video I show some tips on how to put the layers together to emboss the Flourish Thinlit instead of cutting it out.

These new Embossing Mats are going to be a great addition to your craft supply! You’ll now be able to emboss with any die that normally cuts an image or frame out.  You’ll get so much more from your dies now and be able to make many cool projects with them.  There are 3 mats in the pack and a bargain at just $26! Click here to order yours today!

If you’d like to learn ways to get more from your Big Shot Machine be sure to check out my Big Shot 101 Class on 30th June!

Now I didn’t just emboss that flourish.

Embossed Flourishes by Leonie Schroder Independent Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Australia

To make the card a little special I painted the clear Wink of Stella over the flourish so it’s now all shimmery and pretty.  I also flicked some more shimmer on the the blank areas and added some Pearls.

I do hope you my Embossed Flourishes card and you give the Embossing Mats a try.  Remember when you shop on-line with me during June and use the Hostess Code you’ll receive my bonus Thank You gifts

Free gift with order ….
