Shimmery Spritzed Trees

I love how these trees turned out ..

Shimmery Spritzed Trees by Leonie Schroder Independent Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Australia

Working and creating with our Shimmery White Cardstock is so much fun and I’ve used it here to make my trees.  I cut a piece  9cm x 7cm  and spritzed it with my Stampin’ Spritzers with Tempting Turquoise and Lemon Lime Twist.

As I mixed my re-inkers with Rubbing Alcohol the cardstock dried fairly quickly then I simply cut my trees out with the dies and the Big Shot.   I managed to get 2 sets of trees from this piece so I had enough trees to make 2 cards!

Spritzed Trees with Splatter by Leonie Schroder Independent Stampin Up Demonstrator Australia

This second card I added a faint splatter from Touches of Texture to make some falling snow.

The sentiment I’ve used on both cards comes from the Star of Light Stamp Set.

I’ve got a sweet card for you today using the gorgeous Eclectic Layers Thinlits

The Eclectic Layers Thinlits pack is a great addition to your craft supply.  It’s got 13 gorgeous dies of which some cut images out, some have detailed cuts and some emboss. So much to add to all your projects.

Oh So Subtle Eclectic Layers

Oh So Subtle Eclectic Layers Card by Leonie Schroder Independent Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Sydney Australia

I’ve used the subtles family colours to cut my flowers and leaves using Pink Pirouette, Soft Sky and Pear Pizzazz.  I’ve stamped my sentiment from the Oh so Eclectic Stamp Set and cut it out with the Stitched Shapes Framelits.

I’ve done a little watercolour wash on my base card so you see a slight blue hue through the cutout.

I’ve embellished my card with the new shimmery pool party ribbon and some iddy biddy pearls in the centre of the flowers for a soft feminine touch.

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.

I hope you like what I’ve made for you today and be sure to stop by Libby and Narelle’s blogs to see what awesome projects they’ve made for you this week.

Ways to use Embossing Folders – Brick Wall

Good Morning and Welcome to another edition of my new Ways to Use Classes and this month it’s Ways to Use Embossing Folders.

This class was so much fun and the ladies all loved it and it will be available as a Class To Go for you to purchase this week – or you can also get it for free so keep reading on for those details!

Brick Wall Sponging …

I loved doing this card and making the background.  I’ve used the Brick Wall embossing folder with Very Vanilla Cardstock. I then sponged with blues, browns and gray inks to  get this effect.

I wanted to emulate those plaques and metal decor items you can get for the outside entertaining areas.  I chose the pots from Gift from the Garden Stamp Set and just coloured my stamp with my Stampin’ Write Markers before stamping.  The sentiment is cut out using one of the frames from the Project Life Cards & Labels Framelit pack.

I do love the way the bricks are vertical – it’s like one of those trendy new style feature walls.

How perfect would this card be to go with a plaque or plant for a housewarming present?

Be sure to check back later this week to get all the details for my Ways to Use Embossing Folders Virtual Class!

Special Reason with Daubers

Good Afternoon! I have another card for you today from my Special Reason Class and I even have a video to show you how you can use your daubers for more colour in your stamping.

Here’s today’s card …

I do love this bundle for all the elements you can add to your cards.   I love using daubers too to add colour and depth to my cards.

Today I’ve used the daubers on this card to add colour to the centre of the large flowers here and to colour a small square of cardstock to place behind the flower cut outs.   I’ve made a video for you to show you how I’ve done this …

It’s easy when you know how isnt it? and now that you do know how I do hope you’ll be able to incorporate this technique into your cards.  I’d love to see what you make too so be sure to share a link with me.

Here’s the finished card from the video ..

I quite like the look of the Linen Thread in place of the ribbon.

How would you like a free pack of daubers to try?  Simply place an online order by 15th February of $90 or more and I’ll send you a pack absolutely free!  Remember, spending $90 in one order will also get you a free Sale-a-bration item! So dont forget to make sure your order is in $90 increments so you can take advantage of the wonderful Saleabration specials!

Special Reason Art Frame

Good Morning – hope you have started Friday off well and the day is going well.  I have another card for you today from my Special Reason Class last weekend.   I really do love this bundle and want to show you it’s more than just another flower set.

This card has a few elements to it and I was concerned that the ladies at class would get frustrated but they got through it with out any tears so they must have loved it right?

Here’s the card …

Looks involved right?  It has lace, it has ribbon, it has vellum, it has leaves and flowers,  it has a frame and, of course, it has grunge and rhinestones!

It’s not really as hard as it looks but it does take time doing each step and truly, once all the pieces are cut, it’s quite easy to put together.  My ladies did well and agreed it truly is a piece of art – frame and all!

My card was inspired by this card by Claudia Maser – a demonstrator from Germany

Elements …

There is literally two stamps on this card and that’s it.  The rest is just a matter ofcutting and layering the pieces before sticking them down in place.  When I do cards like this I lay all my pieces down and rearrangement them if I feel the need till it looks as I’d like it to and then I get out the Tombow Multipurpose Glue and the Mini Glue Dots and start adhering it all down.

Do you see the vellum leaves underneath?  My card just needed something and just something as subtle as vellum leaves gave it the depth it needed and now I want to put vellum leaves on everything!  Trust me – you’ll be noticing them over the next week or so!

Have you liked the Special Reason cards I’ve shared so far ?

I still have a couple more to show but want to do videos for them. If you have liked what you’ve seen so far maybe you’d like to host your own Special Reason Class with your friends?  We just need four people for the class to go ahead and if anyone decides to purchase the bundle they’ll get the class for free!

Maybe you work full time and dont have time for classes but would still like to do the class and maybe learn more then you may like to consider purchasing the Stampin’ Up! Starter Kit – you will receive $235 worth of products and pay just $169! You’ll also receive two bonus stamp sets of your choice for free when you join during Saleabration!  Plus, being a part of my team, you’ll have access to my Latte Girls team group, monthly team gatherings and you’ll also be able to choose one of my classes for free each month!  There’s lots of Perks to being part of my Latte Girls Team!

I do hope you like my card today and if you’d like more information about hosting one of my classes, or even a party in your home, or maybe you have questions about joining Stampin’ Up! and the benefits you’ll receive then please dont hesitate to contact me.  You can leave a comment on this post, give me a call or email me – whichever you prefer.

Sneak Peek – Lift Me Up

Good Afternoon

It’s a bit of a lazy Friday here today with Hubby home as his work has closed for Christmas and a quick trip to the shops early to get the food and last bits for Christmas.   I hope you are all ready for Christmas.

Today I have another sneak peek for you from the Occasions and Sale-a-bration Catalogues and one designed by my friend Libby for our recent Sale-a-bration Pre-Launch …

It uses the lovely new Lift Me Up Stamp Set which comprises of 16 stamps of sentiments, clouds and Hot Air Balloons.  There’s also a Thinlits set to coordinate and cut your images out easily with the Big Shot and yes they come in a bundle!

The Designer Series Paper pack is the Carried Away pack which is one of the new Sale-a-bration packs and includes 6 different designs and 2 sheets of each.   We’ve used two of the designs on this card.

This is another card that is quick and fun to make and a great birthday card for the guys dont you think?

Remember both the Sale-a-bration and Occasions Catalogues start on 4th January and if you dont have your copy let me know so I can get one of each off to you.

There’s so much to fall in love with in the new catalogues and I’ll be holding my New Occasions & Saleabration Catalogue Crafternoon on 8th January where I’ll have samples to see, projects to make and some refreshments to keep us going so be sure to register for that!

Pastel Flurry of Wishes from Stampin’ Up!

Good Morning!

Today I have my last class for the year … awwww!   I am looking forward to seeing the ladies today and have some sweet cards for the last Birthday Card Club of 2016.

Did you know it’s Christmas next week?  How does that happen?  you have weeks and weeks to shop and prepare and BOOM!  Just like that it’s one week away!

I hope you are prepared but just in case you are short on cards here’s a quick and easy idea using an old favourite – Flurry of Wishes …

I love doing some Christmas Cards in non-traditional colours and snowflakes just call for soft pretty colours dont they?

The colours I’ve used are Wisteria Wonder,  Pool Party and Blushing Bride.  They go so well together and just match the Frosted Sequins so well!

Now I have a tip for you today.  If you are sending out your cards this week please pop them into a plastic/cello bag that can be sealed to protect it from the weather.  If you’ve gone to all the trouble to hand make a card you dont want it arriving all water logged and washed out.

I had two arrive yesterday and while it is summer here we have more rain forecast this week.   One of the cards I received I couldnt really read the message they’d wrote inside which made me sad.   So .. go grab some clear envelopes or cello bags and protect your work!

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!
