    Best Ever using All Adorned by Leonie Schroder Independent Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Australia

    All Adorned

    I have some samples for you today using the very lovely and very versatile All Adorned Sale-a-bration Stamp Set.

    All Adorned Saleabration Stamp Set
    All Adorned Saleabration Stamp Set

    All Adorned

    At first look at this set you might think you dont need or like it. I was the same but I got it anyway in pre-order. I will tell you that this is a very versatile set for all sorts of cards. It was designed to be used with the Stamparatus and it works a treat!

    Best Ever using All Adorned by Leonie Schroder Independent Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Australia

    I watched the video from Stampin’ Up! for this set and just had to make this card. It was inspired by the one they made. It’s fun and easy to do with the aid of the Stamparatus. I’m not sure you’d want to do this without it as lining up the corners could be a challenge. I do quite like the Navy & Vanilla Combination.

    Lots of Love using All Adorned by Leonie Schroder Independent Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Australia

    Another favourite colour combination of Night of Navy, Balmy Blue and Gray Granite. This card can be used for any occasion or time you wish to tell someone you are thinking of them and sending them some love.

    Again, this was done with the Stamparatus and I know if I tried to line up the images freestyle then they would definitely not look as good as this!

    Like You using All Adorned by Leonie Schroder Independent Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Australia

    This is the same design as the previous card. I’ve simply changed the orientation to a landscape card, the colours and sentiment. I already had the stamps lined up on my Stamparatus Plates so it was easy to do!

    I’ve used Lemon Lime Twist and Blueberry Bushel for my inks and cardstock. The Sentiment comes from the Part of my Story Saleabration Stamp Set and I’ve included one of our little epoxy hearts over the Navy heart on the tag.

    Dont recognise the punch? it’s a new one coming in the Saleabration Coordination Special in March. It’s a gorgeous punch and one you’ll need to grab in March.

    Happy Valentine’s Day

    Good Morning .. today is Valentine’s Day so Happy Valentine’s Day! Whether your partner, spouse or secret admirer send’s you something or not know that I appreciate and love you!

    Happy Valentine’s Day

    Did you know that Valentine’s Day was originally started back in 469? It was to commemorate early Christian Martyrs – many of whom were named Valentine. It wasnt until the 14th century that it began to be associated with love. Then in the 18th century people started giving gifts to those they loved. This complete’s today’s History lesson!

    For today’s project I’ve used the gorgeous Meant to Be Stamp Set and All My Love Designer Series Paper pack …

    This card was a case from one of the projects offered in the quarterly magazine we get from Stampin Up! called Stampin’ Success. It’s just one of the many perks of being a Demonstrator.

    Their card had the ‘Just for You‘ over the floral heart but I thought it was way too pretty to cover up so I popped it lower.

    The card is super easy to make with the Meant to Be bundle …

    It’s a great bundle and when you purchase it during Saleabration you’ll automatically earn yourself a free Level 1 Saleabration reward! Plus we have new Saleabration offerings starting tomorrow so be sure you check back tomorrow morning for all the details!

    While it does have a Valentine’s Day Sentiment in the set you could use this for Anniversaries, Engagements or weddings. I am a sucker for hearts so did get this when the catalogue started. I love all the different hearts plus all the other lovely elements in the die pack.

    There’s so much to love in this sweet Bundle I know you’ll have lots of fun creating all sorts of projects with it!

    Thanks so much for stopping by and hope you were showered with lots of love on Valentine’s Day.

    See you latte ..

    Lasting Moments with Lasting Lily

    Good Afternoon and welcome to another Freshly Brewed Projects with the Latte Girls Blog Hop. This week we are creating with the gorgeous Lasting Lily Saleabration Stamp Set

    Freshly Brewed Projects with the Latte Girls

    Lasting Lily

    This is such a stunning stamp set and you can get it for free with a qualifying order. It is a Level 2 reward so you will need to place an order of $180 or more to get it. Trust me – it’s worth it!

    It’s such a gorgeous set and it includes 16 stamps – 6 images and 10 sentiments! It is one of our Distinktive Stamps and it’s a little different than our previously released Distinktive Stamps as it’s in Photopolymer. Being in Photopolymer it’s easy to see when lining up or perfect to use with your Stamparatus.

    Here is what I’ve created for you today …

    When I think of these gorgeous Lilies I see them laying down. I haven’t seen many cards with them this way so opted to do them like that.

    Cutting out the Lilies was a snap as I used the upcoming Lilies Framelits Dies you’ll be able to purchase in March!

    One of my friends and team members passed away on the weekend after a long battle with Cancer so this card will be going to her family. It’s so heartbreaking as she had only recently celebrated her 35th Birthday. So there really are no words as the sentiment says.

    I wanted something bright to reflect Yasmin’s spirit so went with the Daffodil Delight for the flowers. I also used the little texture stamp in Soft Sea Foam to give it a subtle background.

    I finished off my card with the Silver Edged White Ribbon for that perfect touch.

    Thanks so much for stopping by today and please hug those close to you and never pass up a chance to tell them you love them!

    See you latte ..

    Especially for You using Botanical Bliss created by Leonie Schroder Independent Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Australia

    Especially for You

    Good Morning! I’ve got one of my Botanical Bliss cards for you today. It’s one that we made a few months back but too pretty not to share it here with you!

    Especially for You using Botanical Bliss created by Leonie Schroder Independent Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Australia

    Botanical Bliss

    This is such a sweet card and perfect for those special people in your life and for any occasion. I do love this sweet little Botanical Bliss Bundle – with all the elements in the stamp set and the framelits pack it makes for many great projects and scrapbook layouts.

    The rose image is stamped onto my stitched oval in Versamark and then embossed in Gold. The sentiment is stamped in Blushing Bride.

    Especially for You using Botanical Bliss created by Leonie Schroder Independent Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Australia

    My cut out pieces were done in Blushing Bride and Pear Pizazz. They both use the same die so cut it twice then just layered my pieces from the back of the oval.

    To give my card more depth I stamped another rose image on my top layer using my oval piece as my guide for placement. One to the top left and one to the lower right.

    I finished my card off with a simple bow using the gorgeous Vanilla Ribbon from the Tea Room Ribbon Combo Pack.

    It’s the perfect card to send to a close friend just to say hi or to include a birthday or anniversary sentiment. It would also be the perfect accompaniment for a gift.

    Earn Free Products

    Purchase the Botanical Bliss Bundle and add some adhesives, ribbons, cardstock or Designer Series papers and take your order to $90 or more and you can then select a free Saleabration Level 1 product for free!

    Simple Stamping Technique – Blends Marbling

    Welcome to another Simple Stamping Techniques International Blog Hop! This month we are sharing the fun Stampin’ Blends Marbling Technique.

    Simple Stamping Techniques International Blog Hop

    Stampin’ Blends Marbling

    I stumbled across this Stampin’ Blends Marbling Technique in December and knew I had to share it with you and the Stamping Techniques Design Team!

    I did a trial run with my technique club and they loved it. It was fun to do and every piece came out different even with the same colours and the same tools.

    Now depending on the colour you choose you’ll find that the colours dont always ‘appear’ as you think they will. Using darker colours doesnt mean your piece will have them prominently up front. My ‘arty’ daughter explained that when you use a colour with a ‘heavy’ pigment they tend to sink to the background when doing a technique like this. The lighter colours will always come to the top/front of the the piece. This explains while even when using dark blue or red the pinks and yellows seemed to come out more.

    Here’s a few of my pieces I made with varying colours …

    As you can see you can get lots of different pieces with the same colours and technique. Here’s my card I’m sharing with you today …

    I didn’t want to take too much from my background piece so I simply added a sentiment and flower frame using the Forever Lovely Bundle. The colours for my flower frame were taken to match my background.

    Blends Marbling How To …

    1. You will need Stampin Blends Markers, Gloss Cardstock, ziplock bag, Isocol or Rubbing Alcohol and Paper Towels.
    2. Using your markers scribble or colour over your ziplock bag.
    3. Spritz with Isocol/Rubbing Alcohol
    4. Lay Gloss Cardstock piece down on spritzed ziplock bag and smoosh all over the back to ensure your piece is totally covered.
    5. Remove cardstock from bag and set aside to dry – wipe bag over with Paper Towels & clean up.
    6. Once your piece is dry you can use is at a background or to die cut for a pretty frame or with your favourite die cut flowers, borders and images.

    Check out the video here on how to do this awesomely addictive technique!

    Let’s go hopping …

    Check out what the Simple Stamping Techniques Design Team has created for you using the Blends Marbling Technique …

    I do hope you like all the projects the Design Team made for you using this Technique. Now with all those pieces I made I’ll need to make a few more cards!

    Just Because

    Good Afternoon and welcome to another Freshly Brewed Projects Blog Hop with the Latte Girls! Today we are creating ‘Just Because’ cards …

    Freshly Brewed Projects with the Latte Girls

    Just Because …

    In all honesty you really shouldn’t need a reason, or an occasion, to send a card. You are entitled to send a card just because you want to!

    Now to keep with the theme I’ve used the Just Because Hostess Set from the Occasions Catalogue.

    Just Because Hostess Set

    How sweet is this set? It’s so sweet I’m doing a Stamp A Stack this Sunday using it! If you’d like to come along be sure to contact me for all the Class Details.

    Here’s what I’ve made for you today …

    I love this little stamp set with the different images and sentiments. It’s the perfect set for colouring with my Stampin’ Blends! The pot is coloured with the Pumpkin Pie and Cajun Craze Blends Combos and just love how it turned out! It looks like someone else coloured it!

    Then I went onto colouring the leaves. They are done using Old Olive and Granny Apple Green blends. The shading and blending is all done with the light and dark markers of those two colour combos.

    I love how these blends can turn anyone into an artist! I’m starting my Stampin’ Blends club this month where I’ll show you how to blend like this as well as many other Blends Techniques. All the details for my Stampin’ Blends Club can be found here

    Now lets see what the other Latte Girls have created for you this week with the ‘Just Because’ theme …

    I do hope you like today’s projects and remember if you’d like to come along on Sunday to contact me before Friday or click here to RSVP

    Botanical Butterfly Note by Leonie Schroder Independent Stampin' Up! Demonstrator AUstralia

    Botanical Butterfly

    This card was one of my make and takes for my Sale-a-bration Launch earlier this month. It’s fun and easy and just has the sentiment that is stamped on the card.

    I do love these papers!

    Such pretty colours in the pack and I love how Stampin’ Up! designed these with colour designs on one side and black and white on the other. I’ve made a few more cards with this pack so I’ll be sharing them over the coming week.

    Good Afternoon and welcome to another Freshly Brewed Projects Blog Hop with the Latte Girls! This week we are creating with the Butterfly Gala Stamp Set.

    Butterfly Gala

    How sweet is this little Butterfly Gala Bundle

    I love that this bundle includes a punch as it makes it affordable for all budgets. Did you notice that the stamps are aligned together so they’ll easily line up in the punch every time! How cool is that?

    Now … as a word of warning … if you want this bundle it is on Low Inventory so you will need to order it sooner rather than later. As once our supplies are depleted the Bundle and the Punch will not be order-able again until April! Click here to order yours today!

    Here’s my card for today …

    Butterfly Gala Faux Embossing by Leonie Schroder Independent Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Australia

    This was one of the cards we made last week at my Weekly Technique Class on Tuesday. We did the Faux Embossing Technique. The Technique is done easily by simply punching out the butterflies from the same coloured cardstock as the base card (Powder Pink) and then affixing them straight down to give an embossed look. It’s quick fun and easy to do and gives the card lots of dimension!

    For my top panel I stamped the sentiment and small butterfly in Lemon Lime Twist. The little butterfly is surrounded by one of our Butterfly Elements available for free during Sale-a-bration. Now if you want these you’ll also need to add them to that quick order as they too are on the Low Inventory list!

    Butterfly Gala Faux Embossing by Leonie Schroder Independent Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Australia

    The wooden Butterfly Elements are so fun to work with and give your projects lots of dimension. You wont want to miss out on those!
