I love this fun funky set!  Cake Crazy has 22 stamps that you can use to create your own Crazy Cake.  It’s so much fun to create with and being Photopolymer it makes it real easy to line up the stamps.

More Spritzed Marker Technique Cards

Good Morning!  Well today is going to be a full on day at On Stage Local in Sydney and I cant wait.  While I’m away I have another fun card using Balloon Adventures and the Spritzed Marker Technique.

Spritzed Marker Technique by Leonie Schroder Independent Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Australia

I love this technique and I love how these cards turned out!   I love how the colours mix and the Enamel Shapes (I sure hope those make it into the new Catalogue! If you hear tears and wailing in the distance it may just be me!)

Spritzed Marker Technique by Leonie Schroder Independent Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Australia

This one reminds me of the Australian Budgerigar with the Blue, Yellow & Green hues.  Maybe it’s because we’ve been looking at birds lately to replace the one my daughter had that died after a head injury.

This technique is super easy with the scribbling with the markers onto the block and then a spritz or two of water using our Spritzer Bottles then smoosh it onto the card, lift and you are done!

Sounds easy right?  Well here’s another Facebook Live Video I made recently doing this very technique ..

I know the video goes for a while but it includes two card tutorials and you can just drag the timer along to where you want to watch.

This second card I have for you uses Flirty Flamingo, Pool Party  and Blushing Bride. Again I’ve used the gorgeous Enamel Shapes plus I’ve also added the Balloon from the Party Animal Embellishment Pack.

Why dont you try it?

This technique really is very easy to do and gives such cool results.  Why not try it for yourself and use different colour combinations to see how they turn out?  Remember start with your lightest colour and work your way to the darkest!

I do hope you have lots of fun with this Technique and feel free to share your cards with me as I love to see what you make too!

Freshly Brewed Projects … with Numbers

Welcome to another week of Freshly Brewed Projects from the Latte Girls and this week we are sharing different ways to use Numbers in your projects.

There are lots of ways to use numbers in your projects and we have both stamps and dies to use.

Today’s card uses the Large Numbers Thinlits and was one requested by a customer wanting a 1st Birthday card for her Grand Daughter …

1st Birthday Card using LIttle Cuties created by Leonie Schroder Independent Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Australia

This was a quick a fun card done using the Little Cuties Stamp Set and the way it’s designed if could be used for a child of any age.

How cute is that little Puppy & Kitten?   It was so fun to colour these little cuties!

The number is cut from the Sweet Sugarplum Glimmer Paper which was available during Saleabration and I used the Large Numbers dies to cut the number out.

I’ve used the Candle Cut out die from the Window Box framelits to cut out my candles.  I’ve then cut strips of the Glimmer Paper to place behind the candles. The Saleabration pack was used for the Candle Sticks and the Gold Glimmer Paper for the flames.

Lift Me Up

It’s another rainy day here today and the opportune time to dream about floating away in a Hot Air Balloon.  A little like the one’s I’ve used on today’s card from the Lift Me Up Stamp Set.

Lift Me Up Stamp Set from Stampin' Up! - Leonie Schroder Independent Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Australia

This is such a fun set to create with and you can create anything from quirky and cute to old fashioned and vintage.

Today’s card was one from my Any Occasion – Birthdays class last month …

Lift Me Up Birthday Card by Leonie Schroder Independent Stampin' Up! Demonsrator Australia

I really love how this card turned out and it’s perfect for male or female friends and family. I also love that I could make this card with just using the Lift Me Up stamp set!

The colours I’ve used are Sahara Sand, Tip Top Taupe and Dapper Denim.

Now dont forget Tip Top Taupe will be retiring at the end of May along with the other 2015-2017 In Color’s.  So if you have ink pads and need the reinkers or markers please dont delay in ordering as they tend to sell out before the retirement list even comes out. If you are running low on Cardstock then maybe grab some of that too!

Freshly Brewed Embellished Projects

Good Afternoon .. it’s Wednesday so it must be time for another Freshly Brewed Projects from the Latte Girls and this week we are sharing ways to Embellish your projects.

Recently I’ve started doing Facebook Live videos on my Facebook Business page and on my Private Latte Girls Team group. While we’ve had a few hiccups they’ve been lots of fun which is a little surprising as I dont normally like being in front of the camera.

Last week I decided to pull out and ink up my Tie Dyed Stamp Set from the Occasions Catalogue.  I did this one live on my Stamp A Latte Facebook Page and these are a little fun as I dont normally go from a sample card – just an idea in my head …

Birthday Dude Card using Tie Dyed from Stampin' UP!  created by Leonie Schroder Independent Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Australia

It’s always nice when you do these things live and they actually turn out as you’d imagined them!  The one is done with Daffodil Delight, Tempting Turquoise and Wild Wasabi for a guys Tie Dyed card.

Of course we need one for the ladies …

Birthday Card using Tie Dyed from Stampin' UP!  created by Leonie Schroder Independent Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Australia

These cards are so quick and fun and just a little ‘hip’.  The colours I used on this one are Daffodil Delight, Pumpkin Pie and Melon Mambo.

Both the Sentiments come from the Birthday Blast Stamp Set.

Now for some super fun embellishing …

What Will You Stamp – Balloon Adventures

Welcome to another wonderful week of What Will You Stamp Challenges and this week we are creating with the lovely Balloon Adventures ..

WWYS109 - Balloon Adventures - Leonie Schroder Independent Stampin' Up! Demonstrator AustraliaThis stamp set is so much fun! When I first saw it at On Stage last November I thought ‘it’s nice but not sure I need it’.  It’s always amusing to think back on thoughts like these because it’s now ‘an awesome set’ and ‘everyone should have one’!

It also comes in a bundle so you’ll save 10% when you purchase the Stamp Set and Framelits together!  What a great way to earn free Saleabration products!

Here’s what I’ve made for you this week …

WWYS109 - Balloon Adventures - Leonie Schroder Independent Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Australia

I have made a few cards with this bundle already and this time I wanted to focus on the sentiments in this set.  It has some great sentiments and a couple, like the one I’ve used today, that work really well as stand alone sentiments.

I’ve use a couple of Stampin’ Write Marker techniques on this card. Firstly, I inked up my stamp in Bermuda Bay and then used my Island Indigo marker to go over the ‘full’ then stamped it on my Shimmery White cardstock.  I then used my Pool Party marker to partially colour the block words ‘Another Year’ for an ombre look.  It really makes the words pop.

WWYS109 - Balloon Adventures - Leonie Schroder Independent Stampin' Up! Demonstrator AustraliaI’ve punched the large balloon from my Balloon Bouquet punch in the Bermuda Bay Glimmer Paper (Saleabration item – free with a $90 order) and the Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Paper and added them with dimensionals.

The streamer stamp was stamped randomly on the Pool Party layer with Pool Party ink then sponged the edge for a little definition.

Did you know … 

  • You’ll get a free limited edition Saleabration product when you spend $90 with me before the end of March
  • I’m running a Marker Club so with a small monthly commitment over 5 months you’ll end up with ALL our Markers and the Many Marvellous Markers Case plus the new In Colour Marker pack for free in July
  • I host a Live Video Stream on my Facebook Page every Tuesday and demonstrate a card and have a weekly giveaway – click here to go to my Facebook Page

Dont forget to head over to the What Will You Stamp Challenge Blog and see what the Design Team has made for you using Balloon Adventures.

Hope your Day is Sweet

Good Morning!  I have a sweet card for you today using the Cool Treats Bundle so I do hope your day is sweet …

Sweet Card using Cool Treats Bundle from Stampin Up - Leonie Schroder Independent Stampin Up Demonstrator Australia

This card was so much fun to make and the Ice Cream does come to life as you build it and pop that Chocolate shell on top!   Now I’m glad this is just a card ice cream as I’d hate to think how many points would be in a real one being on Weight Watchers!

The Frozen Treats framelits make this card super easy with all the scoops, topping, cherry & cone easy to cut out ..

Stamping Techniques 101 – Using Washi Tape

Hello and welcome back to another Stamping Techniques 101 Blog Hop!  This month we are sharing quick and easy ways to use Washi Tape in your projects.

I am not sure what it is about Washi Tape but everyone loves it right?  I know I do but why? who knows? but it’s cool and we all have to have it don’t we?

Is your supply overrunning like mine is?  Well I hope the Stamping Techniques Team give you some great tips and ideas on ways to use your Washi Tape.

You’ll need these products to make today’s card …
Product List

Here’s my card …

Here’s how to make it …

  1. You’ll need three pieces of Shimmery White – 297mm x 105mm, 80mm x 70mm, 77mm x 67mm. Fold the long piece in half and burnish with bone folder.
  2. Cut your patterned piece of Designer Series Paper to 100mm x 144mm and adhere to card base with Liquid Multipurpose Glue.
  3. Place the larger of the two white pieces into the Candle Border Punch and line up in the middle and punch.
  4. Now select three rolls from the Tasty Treats Washi pack. You’d want a yellow to go behind the flames but the choice of which to use are yours.   Using the top layer (the one you punched the candles from) as a guide stick three rows of washi tape down.
  5. Stamp Happy Birthday in Chocolate Chip Ink above your candles and adhere these two layers together with Liquid Multipurpose Glue.  Straighten as required.  If you have any of the bottom layer showing under the top simply use your snips to trim it off.
  6. Get a long piece of White and Blushing Bride Baker’s Twine and tie around these two layers and into a bow at the front.
  7. Affix the top layer to your card with Dimensionals.

How easy was that?  I hope you find time this week to sit and create some cards and I’d love to hear how you went with this tutorial.  It’s a fun and easy card to make!

Now it’s time to hop over to Carmen’s blog and see what she’s created for you today with Washi Tape
