Say Sorry with Tulips by Leonie Schroder Independent Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Australia

When I first saw the Sorry for Everything Stamp Set I thought what a wonderful set for so many occasions or to just simply say ‘Sorry’.

Check out all these sentiments  ..

Colorful Season for Christmas

Good Afternoon – hope you are keeping warm where you are! Today I have another share from my Colorful Season class for your and today’s ‘season’ is Christmas … or winter.

Colorful Season for Christmas

Colourful Christmas Season Card by Leonie Schroder Independent Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Sydney Australia

I am currently in Victoria visiting family and it’s freezing here.  I know it’s winter but boy they do get the wind’s off what feels like the winds are coming straight off the polar ice caps in Antarctica!  So thought it fitting to share a card with snowflakes on it with you today!

A Little Christmas Spirit Card using Colorful Season by Leonie Schroder Independent Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Australia

I love snowflakes and soft colours for Christmas even though our Christmas weather is sweltering.  The Seasonal Layers Thinlits was perfect to pair with the Soft Falling Embossing Folder and the sentiment from the Star of Light Stamp Set for this card.

Our Dazzling Details Glimmer Paper makes the perfect Snowflakes!

The sentiment comes from the Star of Light Stamp sent and is stamped in Dapper Denim.

Colorful Season High Tide

Happy Monday!

Today I have a lovely card with a view using Colourful Season and High Tide from my Colorful Season Class.

Colorful Season High Tide ..

Seasonal High Tide Card by Leonie Schroder Independent Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Australia

I love how this card turned out – it’s like looking out your window onto a beach scene.  You can just about hear those waves crash cant you?

To create the ‘window’ on my card I cut a piece of copy/printer paper the same size as my top layer.  Then using my trimmer I cut a rectangle mask out …

Seasonal Mask by Leonie Schroder Independent Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Australia
Layer 95mm x 135 mm

Once you have cut your mask simply lay it over your top cardstock layer that’s the same size and use your sponge brayers to brayer on Crumb Cake for the sand and Bermuda Bay for the Sea & Sky.  Stamp your Sea/Water stamp before removing the mask so you keep the nice clean edges to your ‘window’.

Remove your mask and complete your stamping.  The Adirondack Chair is cut from Shimmery White using the Seasonal Layers Thinlits and adhered to your top layer with mini dimensionals.

This is a great card that can be given for any occasion and another card totally perfect for giving to the males in our lives.  You could even swap the chair out for some sea shells, birds or even a small boat!

Colorful Season Bundle Class To Go – coming soon

I do hope you like today’s card and if you’d like to purchase the Colorful Season Class To Go the Tutorials will be up later in the week in my Classes to Go Store.  Again, you’ll get it for free when you purchase of the stamp set or bundle from me.

Annual Catalogue Favourites ESAD Blog Hop

Welcome to another ESAD Blog Hop – this hop is to share our Annual Catalogue Favourites with you!

Annual Catalogue Favourites ..

Now when it says favourite I am sure that many would be expecting me to be sharing projects using the Coffee Cafe Suite.  Sorry if I disappointed you but today I’m using the gorgeous Just Add Color Specialty Paper pack ..

Just Add Color by Stampin' Up!

I love this pack and held a class last weekend and we had lots of colouring therapy making our cards!

In the class we made five cards ..

Just Add Color Card by Leonie Schroder Independent Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Sydney Australia

Softly coloured Tea pot and Cup coloured with Watercolor Pencils and Aqua Painters.  I coloured inside the line of the pot and cup and just used my Aqua Painter to drag the colour in.  Sentiment comes from Bookcase Builder Stamp Set.

Just Add Color Card by Leonie Schroder Independent Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Australia

I love this leaf paper.  You can colour it for any season!  I opted to use different tones and colours in my Watercolor Pencil pack and tried some blending with different colours.  Sentiment is from Colourful Season and I’ve also used some complimentary coloured ribbons and trim to pop behind the saying. I used the Copper Trim, Linen Thread, Mini Black Sequin Trim and the Old Olive Sheer Ribbon.

Just Add Color Card by Leonie Schroder Independent Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Sydney Australia

More fussy cutting for this Watering Can Card.  I’ve also used both Watercolour Pencils and my Stampin Write Markers for colouring on this card.  I wanted the can to look like one of those metal painted cans so just coloured with my pencils along the edges and blended with the Aqua Painter.  The flowers are all coloured with my Stampin’ Write Markers.  The hello sentiment is from Eastern Beauty Stamp Set.

Just Add Color Card by Leonie Schroder Independent Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Sydney Australia

This is another favourite .. the page of the rows of houses reminds me of my trip to San Francisco in 2013 and the tour along the streets lined with the old houses.  I sponged the inks on the top layer using pear pizzazz and soft sky. The houses are coloured using the inks from the lids of the ink pads with the Aqua Painter.  I then touched up my doors with markers.  The sentiment is from the Oh So Eclectic Stamp Set.

This next card is my favourite … Dreamcatcher using Just Add Color Card by Leonie Schroder Independent Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Sydney Australia

I was a little unsure what to do with the feathers then this idea popped into my head!  I did  a watercolour wash on my top layer of Shimmery White using Lemon Lime Twist and Berry Burst.

The centre of my Dream Catcher is cut from Vellum and stamped in Soft Suede – the centre stamp and the sentiment is from Eastern  Beauty.  The three feathers are coloured in Lemon Lime Twist with Island Indigo highlights, Berry Burst with Fresh Fig Highlights and Peekaboo Peach with Pumpkin Pie Highlights.

Which is your favourite?

Do you know anyone who loves to colour in?  Why not grab them a pack of this paper and a set of our gorgeous Watercolor Pencils?  Perfect gift for under $50 – it could be the start of your Christmas Shopping!
