Happiest of Birthdays to You

Welcome to another Freshly Brewed Projects from the Latte Girls and this week we are creating for Birthdays

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

September is my busiest month for Birthdays so it was great to get some cards made last month for my Latte Card Club using the Happiest of Days Stamp Set.

Happiest of Birthdays 

The Happiest of Days Stamp Set is such a fun set to create with and here’s a fun and quirky card perfect for both male and female …

Happiest of Birthdays to You by Leonie Schroder Independent Stampin Up Demonstrator Australia

I do love to watercolor and this set is perfect for that! I even had some fun blending from the Lemon Lime Twist to the Emerald Envy to the Night of Navy. To do your blending you will need to use either Watercolor Cardstock or Shimmery White as I’ve used here.

I love the touch of vellum behind the sentiment – it give the illusion it’s floating and you can still see the present behind it.

Now I cant wait to see what Libby and Narelle have created for you this week! Let’s go look …

Happy Celebration Embossed

Do you have a particular month where you have oodles of birthdays?  I do and for me that month is September!  I have a card for you today I created for the Card’s for Guys class last month using the Happy Celebration Stamp Set and Celebrations Duo embossing Folder.

Happy Celebration

Embossed Happy Celebration by Leonie Schroder Independent Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Australia

This card was a bit of fun to make with the triangles and colours.  The colours I’ve used are Pool Party, Bermuda Bay and Lemon Lime Twist.

To create my embossed Happy I used the Celebrations duo folder.  I ran a piece of Shimmery White through the Big Shot with the embossing folder then used my sponge brayers over the embossing with the Pool Party – dont press too hard when doing the brayering so you get the white in the debossed party of the letters.

Embossed Happy Celebration by Leonie Schroder Independent Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Australia

I love how the Happy Celebration Stamp Set and the Celebrations duo Embossing folders were designed to go together!  It made designing this card super easy.

To add a bit of pop to my card Iadded some metallic sequins to the card randomly.  My brother has already received this card and loved it … it also reminded him there were some birthdays he needed to send cards for in September!  No doubt to some of the same people I did!

Hope you’ve sent all your September cards – if not now is the time to do so!

Dotty Celebration

Thank you for stopping by today!  I have one of my cards for you from my Cards for Guys class last month.  We had lots of fun with shapes and this Dotty Celebration is a great one!

Dotty Celebration 

I love being able to show another use for a Stamp Set you’d probably not give a second look to in the catalogue and for this card we used the Tabs for Everything to create our dots on our card.

It's a Dotty Celebration for the guys by Leonie Schroder Independent Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Australia I’ve used the half circle solid stamp to create my dots and it’s quite easy to do with the stamps being photopolymer so you can see where you are stamping.

Tabs for Everything

Now I’m sure that if you aren’t into journaling or planners you will have not given this set a second glance.  There are lots of projects you can use this set for – in Memories and More Albums, Baby Cards, and for sending Love Notes and so much more!

The sentiments come from the Happy Celebrations Stamp Set.  I have used this set before and it makes lots of great cards.

Balloon Celebration

Today my youngest turns 18!  Not sure how that happened when I’m sure just the other week she was 3!  So I’ve made this card for her using the Birthday Celebration Stamp Set and the Happy Birthday Thinlits

Birthday Celebration by Leonie Schroder Independent Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Australia

This was another card included in my Birthday Stamp A Stack on Saturday.  The ladies loved this card.

Birthday Celebration 

I used the small solid balloon from Balloon Celebration and stamped it randomly over my white layer in Flirty Flamingo, Pool Party and Peekaboo Peach.  I wanted the balloon layer to be soft and subtle so stamped off first before stamping onto my card.

shimmery black happy birthday by Leonie Schroder Independent Stampin' Up! Demonstrator

To make my Happy Birthday a little bit special I painted it with my Clear Wink of Stella Brush after cutting it out with the Happy Birthday Thinlit.   I did try to capture the shimmer in the photo but it’s a little hard to see.

Dont forget I have my Facebook Live Card Demonstration today on my Stamp A Latte Facebook Page at 11am (sydney time)  – click here to go to my page now.   If you miss it ‘live’ you can always watch the replay!

Afterwards I’ll be taking my girl out for a sweet treat at Oliver Brown Belgian Chocolate Cafe which opened recently here – I’ll be sure to share photo’s!

Now I wonder if there’s anything Weight Watchers friendly there for me?  hmm looking at the menu online I’m thinking probably not!

Cards with Texture Class

This week’s class is Cards with Texture!  We’ll be doing all sorts of embossing …. heat embossing, embossing folders and embossing paste!  Contact me today to register – Class is on Sunday at 2pm.

Happy Birthday Honey … with a Twist

Yesterday was my hubby’s birthday so he had the normal Happy Birthday wishes in the morning … well mostly!  It was Happy Birthday Honey … with a Twist – you see I’d made his card however he couldn’t have it till after my Birthday Stamp A Stack class!  I’m sure he was fine with that!

Actually this card has a couple of ‘twists’ …

Happy Birthday with Twist by Leonie Schroder Independent Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Austrlalia

The first twist being of the Lemon Lime variety! I cant tell you just how wrong I was about this colour when I first saw it back in April.  My first impression was ‘what were they thinking’ but I’m now finding it hard not to use it in my projects!  It goes with most colours, adds a pop when needed, and if you look around you will see it everywhere!

So, once again, Stampin’ Up! is in the know and knows what will be trending!

Another twist on this card is how I did the framelit sentiment …

Happy Birthday with Twist by Leonie Schroder Independent Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Austrlalia

I’ve cut out the sentiment twice – in Lemon Lime Twist and in Whisper White.  I then popped the Lemon Lime Twist onto the Whisper White with our Liquid Multipurpose Glue and gave it a ‘twist’ to offset it a little and give like a drop shadow effect to the sentiment. This also adds a little depth and dimension to the card.

If you look closely you’ll see a sneak peek from the upcoming Holiday Catalogue (have you requested your copy yet?  click here to get yours).  Yes it’s the gorgeous new Black Rhinestone Jewels – my gosh they are gorgeous and the perfect embellishment for this card!

I hope you also noticed the Gold Metallic Thread I used – it’s not one of my favourite trims to use so it needs noticing when I do! 😉

Happy Birthday Thinlits

You’ll want to grab the Happy Birthday Thinlit for all your Birthday cards – it’s one of those ‘must have’s’ plus you can purchase it to coordinate with your Stylized Happy Birthday Stamp or in a bundle with the Happy Birthday Gorgeous Stamp Set … 

Dont forget August is my Stamp-a-versary and  you will get a free 6×6 Designer Series Paper Stack when you place an order of $100 or more plus be entered into the Birthday Prize draw … It's my Stampaversary - dont miss out on your free gifts - shop with Leonie Schroder Independent Stampin' Up!

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.

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

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.

This card also uses the Faux Frame, Watercolouring and Masking Techniques.
