Sympathy Cards

Today I have two cards for you.

First up this card is for someone you need to send a Sympathy card ‘to’

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

I love the painted harvest stamp set from the new Holiday Catalogue – it’s great for all sorts of cards and you can get such different looks with it just by using different colours.   I also love the Flourishing Phrases Stamp set for its two part sentiments.  Two part sentiments meaning you have a sentiment for the front of your card and one for inside …

My second card today is for is you’re needing to send a thank you for receiving Sympathy cards and support …

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

This card is the same as my previous card – I’ve simply stamped a couple more flowers on the front panel.

Again I’ve used Flourishing Phrases for the sentiments on the front and inside of my card ..

How perfect is this sentiment for thanking someone there for you in your time of need?

You can grab these sets now from my online store or contact me to order them.  I’ve popped the supplies list for these two cards at the end of the email so be sure to click there to start shopping.

Now it’s time to hop over to Libby and Narelle’s blogs to see what they’ve created for you today.

Bee-utiful Texture

Good Afternoon!  I hope you’ve had a lovely day and have a great weekend planned. I have a Bee-utiful card from my Cards with Texture Class.

Bee-utiful Texture

Bee-utiful Texture using Embossing Powder and Dynamic Embossing folder by Leonie Schroder Independent Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Australia

I’ve love the Hexagon Dynamic Texture Embossing Folder since it was released and when I was designing this class I knew I had to use it.

I’ve teamed the embossing folder with some gold heat embossing – I suppose it’s a bit like double dipping – well double embossing at least.

It was hard to picture to gold in the embossing so had to angle it perfectly.  I’m amazed I managed such a clear photo with my shaky hands!

Bee-utiful Texture using Embossing Powder and Dynamic Embossing folder by Leonie Schroder Independent Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Australia

How did she do that …

  •  I ran the tag through the Big Shot with the embossing folder after lightly spritzing the cardstock with water
  • once embossed i used my versamark pad applied it direct to the embossing then sprinkled over embossing powder
  • before heating I tapped off the excess powder and used a soft paintbrush to dab the powder so it would look uneven and speckly in places then heat set the gold powder.

The honeycomb stamp on the background was from Butterfly Basics Stamp Set.  The sentiment and bees come from the Dragonfly Dreams Bundle.

I had so much fun making this card with all the texture and elements.  So glad the ladies at class loved it too.

Be sure to check the end of this post for the products you’ll need to make this card.

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

I do love Christmas and all it’s meaning and the season of giving and I love being able to share a gorgeous new Catalogue with you.  Now the Holiday Catalogue doesnt start till Friday (1st September) but I do have a little preview today for you.

Holiday Catalogue Sneak Peek … 

When I say Holiday Catalogue we immediately think Christmas however there’s so much more than just Christmas in this Catalogue! There’s products for ‘gifts’ so can be used for any occassion you need a gift for plus there is New Year’s, Wedding, Hanukkah, Thanksgiving, Halloween and Autumn/Fall themed products as well.

If you know me you know I’m a sucker  lover of Snowflakes so really couldnt go past sharing some lovelies using the new Snowflake Sentiments bundle with you today.

Emboss Resist Snowflake Sentiments by Leonie Schroder Independent Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Australia

First up is my Emboss Resist Snowflake card which I demonstrated on this week’s Facebook Live Video (click here to watch it).  This was another Latte Card on the go – meaning that I had the design in my head and just had to get it onto cardstock!  I love how the embossed images just pop when you use the sponge brayer over them!

Snowflake Sentiments Tags by Leonie Schroderr Independent Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Australia

These sweet little tags were created today to show the versatility of this stamp set and that I thought the card wasnt enough for today’s blog tour.   These tags are super quick and easy and you’d get 10 tags from one sheet of A4 cardstock!  The tiny pearls were the perfect accent for the tags!

Now it’s time to head over and see what Libby and Narelle have created for you today!

Freshly Brewed Projects for the Guys

Good Afternoon and welcome to another Freshly Brewed Projects from the Latte Girls Blog tour.  This week we are creating projects for the Guys  

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

I have heard many say they really struggle to make cards for their male friends and family.  They can be hard to create for however with a little bit of thought you can make all sorts of lovely cards for them.

Recently I made a card for the Technique Zone Design Team and I was tasked to use the Soot Stamping Technique.  This technique is quite easy and makes really great cards for men.

For the Guys ..

Here’s what I made using Vintage Leaves ..

Sooty Vintage Leaves for the Guys by Leonie Schroder Independent Stampin Up Demonstrator Australia

How cool does this look?  I was a little concerned I’d burn the house down doing this technique but we all survived without having to make any insurance claims!  It was also a lot easier and cooler than I thought it would be.

Stampaversary Day 1 – Daisy Delight Giveaway

Good Afternoon … well today is a special day to me –  on this day in 2006 I joined Stampin’ Up!  I loved the products and the kit was such great value and if I thought I’d enjoy the demonstrator discount for as long as I could.  Not expecting much as I’d never had much success with other Party Plan/Direct Selling companies.  Little did I know that I’d grow a wonderful team, earn trips to travel the world and still be doing this 11 years later!  But here I am!  Check out today’s awesome Daisy Delight Giveaway to celebrate my Stampaversary!

Daisy Delight Giveaway 

Here’s a card I made for my Cards with Texture Class yesterday using the Daisy Delight bundle …

Daisy Delight Wall by Leonie Schroder Independent Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Australia

By shopping with me this week not only will you earn free gifts and bonus products you’ll also help me to earn the Stampin’ Up! Incentive Trip – an Alaskan Cruise!

Incentive Trips … 

I’ve earned a trip to the USA to celebrate Stampin’ Up!’s 25th Anniversary and went to places I only dreamed of going – San Francisco and Sea World at San Diego were two dreams I thought I’d never see myself but we added those onto our Utah trip in 2013 with no expense to use except accommodation, food and touring.

In 2014 I earned the West Caribbean Cruise!  I really wasnt sure what to expect as the only cruise I’d been on was the Ferry from Circular Quay to Taronga Zoo!  Yeah I know not really a cruise and wow what an adventure was the West Caribbean Cruise.  We stopped in Jamaica, Haiti and Mexico – places I would never have thought to visit myself and to do it in such style was wonderful and to be surrounded by my Stampin’ Up! friends was awesome.  I took my oldest daughter on this cruise and she didnt want to leave the boat – or maybe it was the buffet!

Already have the Daisy Delight Bundle but still want to help me get on the boat?   Simply click the shop now button below and go shopping.  All orders of $100 or more will receive a free 6×6 Designer Series Paper Stack plus go in the draw for some super prizes ..

Shop with Leonie Schroder Independent Stampin' Up! Demonstrator for extra rewards

Depending on what you buy you’ll also receive free tutorials from me!  It’s my way to say thank you for your support!
