Year of Cheer Suite

Oh my gosh I do love this suite!  I love the copper, silver and gold foil in the designs.  The Stamp set is lovely and for more than just Christmas. Then there’s the snowflakes, metallic washi tape and metal embellishments.

Now the design and idea for these cards came from my lovely friend Connie Stewart.  It’s a take on the One Sheet Wonder and you can get 12 cards from one sheet of 12×12 paper.

Here’s how to make your panels …

  1. Cut your 12x 12 piece into three strips 10cm wide.
  2. Cut these strips into two 14.5cm wide
  3. Flip these piece over and mark at 8.5cm (3 3/8″) on the long side, rotate to mark the other long side then line up these marks in your trimmer and cut.
  4. Now from one piece of 12×12 you’ll have 12 pieces to pop on your cards.

They work well on tall cards too …

Freshly Brewed Heat Embossed Snowflakes

Good Afternoon and welcome to another week of Freshly Brewed Projects from the Latte Girls.  This week we are creating projects using Heat Embossing

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

Heat Embossing

Heat Embossing is that Technique that gives you your first WOW in stamping!  It’s magic how stamping with a colour-less pad and sprinkling powder over the top can magically transform into something metallic and special with the addition of a little heat!

Heat Emboss Snowflakes by Leonie Schroder Independent Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Australia

I’ve been wanting to get back to the Snowflake Sentiments to play some more and thought some Heat Embossed Snowflakes would be perfect for today’s theme.   Each of my snowflakes has a rhinestone in the centre.

I loved this card so much I decided to try it in another colour and it looks rather nice on the Island Indigo too dont you think?

Heat Emboss Snowflakes by Leonie Schroder Independent Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Australia

These Snowflakes have a small pearl in the centre of each snowflake for a little bling.  What’s a snowflake card without some bling?

I do hope you like what I’ve created today and would love to show you how much fun Heat Embossing is – simply contact me to arrange your party and I’ll bring everything we need for a fun Crafternoon!

Freshly Brewed Pizza Boxes

Good Afternoon and welcome to another Freshly Brewed Projects from the Latte Girls Blog Tour!  This week we are sharing projects using the gorgeous Mini Pizza Boxes

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

Mini Pizza Boxes

Have you seen these Mini Pizza Boxes in the Holiday Catalogue?  Oh my gosh they are so cute and so easy to put together!

You can dress them up as much or as little as you’d like! Colour them with your brayer or Spritzers , add a belly band to dress it up or decorate with a square panel on top or simply just tie a ribbon around and add a tag.  The ideas are unlimited!

You can use them for gifting all sorts of things – cookies, candles, gift cards, jewelry – the list goes on!  The boxes have a coating inside so they are food safe – you could even make  a cookie that looks like a pizza and pop that inside!

Here’s one we made at a recent workshop and also made in Sundays Merry Little Labels class …

Mini Pizza Box Gift Box by Leonie Schroder Independent Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Australia

This little box was so fun to make and while it has lots of elements to it with the belly band, snowflakes, ribbon, bauble and tag it’s still quite easy to do!  It’s just a matter of layering the pieces.  It will make a great box for someone’s Christmas Gift and using the Belly Band means they wont need to rip it all open!

Here’s the same box with the coordinating card …

Freshly Brewed Stampin Blends

Good Afternoon and welcome to another Freshly Brewed Projects with the Latte Girls Blog Hop!  Now I know the title sounds like I have a new coffee blend but I’m really talking about the new Stampin’ Blends Alcohol Markers!

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

Stampin’ Blends

Oh my gosh .. if you love to colour you are going to love these new Alcohol Markers from Stampin’ Up!  I have been colouring with them for a couple of weeks now and I really have to make myself stop and do other stamping!

buy your Stampin' Blends from Leonie Schroder Independent Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Australia

Once you start colouring with them you’ll notice how nicely the inks flow onto the cardstock.  Now I dont mean pour out as they dont do that and they arent wet but the ink just seems to flow onto the cardstock which makes blending so easy to do!

My card for you today uses the Just Add Colour Specialty Designer Series Paper (yes this is one of the packs in the Designer Series Paper Sale – Buy 3 and get the 4th free!)

Seahorses using Stampin' Blends from Stampin Up by Leonie Schroder Independent Demonstrator Australia

This card has a bit of a funny story to it.  See I struggle with insomnia. Sometimes it’s not too bad and other nights well I just have to get up and do something.  There was one of those nights where I had to get up and I remembered I hadnt unpacked my Blends so I unpacked them and popped them on the shelf.

Then thought I should try them out. So I grabbed this piece of Just Add Colour paper and started on the Seahorses.  I love Seahorses at the best of time but these just popped when I coloured them and no matter how much ink or how I blended the paper didnt pill – I was chuffed – so I kept colouring and then it suddenly became 4am! whoops!!

Seahorses using Stampin' Blends from Stampin Up by Leonie Schroder Independent Demonstrator Australia

See how lovely they blend?  Now if you’d like to see them in action you can watch my Stampin’ Blends Sneak Peek Facebook Live Video here.

Blend your Embellishments

You can even use your Stampin’ Blends to coordinate your rhinestones (or pearls) to your project ….

Seahorses using Stampin' Blends from Stampin Up by Leonie Schroder Independent Demonstrator Australia

I coloured mine with the Dark Pool Party Stampin’ Blend Marker and they work so well on the card. You could even say they ‘blend’ in!

Now I love these Blends so much I’m doing two classes!

First is at my place this Saturday 28th October.  We will start at 2pm and class will go for approximately 2 hours.  Please be sure to contact me to reserve your place!

Second class is an online class on my  Stamp A Latte Creative Community group on Facebook.   It will be on 7th November at 10.30am and you’ll need to register early for the free class so I can get your class Kit to you in time.  You will need to order your Markers early in November to have them in time for class too!

Freshly Brewed Designer Series Paper

Good Afternoon!  Welcome to another Freshly Brewed Projects with the Latte Girls Blog Hop!  Today we are sharing projects using our gorgeous Designer Series Paper.

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

Designer Series Paper

I love our range of Designer Series Paper! I also love that this month you can get a pack for free when you purchase 3 packs in the Designer Series Paper Sale.

Today I have a couple of cards I’ve brewed up using the Coffee Break Designer Series Paper pack and the Coffee Cafe Bundle.

Coffee Break Notecards by Leonie Schroder Independent Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Australia

These cards were included in my Card Making Day Stack.  I love the note cards and envelopes for quick and easy cards – they use less Designer Series Paper too so you can more out of a sheet of paper for backgrounds and elements. Coffee Friend Card by Leonie Schroder Independent Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Australia

This one was fun to create and I could create my sentiment “Coffee Friend” by colouring  the words with my Stampin’ Write Marker and stamping it onto my strip of Designer Series Paper.   The little heart comes from the heart strip die from the Mini Treatbag Thinlits.

Latte Thanks Card by Leonie Schroder Independent Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Australia

This one was quick and fun and a great way to say thanks!   The doilly just adds to the card and gives it a little more depth.  I love the softness from using the Soft Sky cardstock for the cup.

Freshly Brewed 4 for 1 Masked Cards

Good Afternoon and welcome to another Freshly Brewed Projects from the Latte Girls Blog Tour.  This week we are making some 4 for 1 Masked Cards!

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

4 for 1 Masked Cards

I recently came across this technique from a video by Jennifer McGuire and thought how cool and decided to add it to our Freshly Brewed Projects.

4 for 1 Masked Cards using Beautiful Bouquet by Leonie Schroder Independent Stampin' Up! Demonstrator AustraliaYou really need to give this technique a go as it’s so quick and easy to make several cards at once. I just love how mine turned out!

4 for 1 Masked Cards using Beautiful Bouquet by Leonie Schroder Independent Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Australia

It’s so easy …

  • simply cut your card layer and cut out your shape.
  • Apply these two pieces to two card bases with repositionable tape/glue
  • stamp around the cut edge of your shapes
  • lift your pieces apart and assemble to make four cards

See so easy!  If you are a visual learner please take a look at  Jennifer’s video here and you’ll see how very clever she is and just how easy these  cards to do!

All the images and sentiments I’ve used today have come from the Beautiful Bouquet Stamp Stet.

Now it’s time to check out what the other Latte Girls have created for you today …

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.

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

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 …

Good Afternoon and welcome to another Freshly Brewed Projects from the Latte Girls.  This week we are using the gorgeous products from the Petal Garden Suite.

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

Petal Garden Suite

Today I’ve created a card that’s a little different.  I’ve made a pocket card using the Envelope Punch Board

Petal Garden Pocket File card by Leonie Schroder Independent Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Australia

I love the 6×6 Petal  Garden Paper Stack for it’s gorgeous colours and sweet feminine designs.  I’ve also used a couple of the adhesive die cuts from the Petal Garden Memories & More card kit.  The pocket is created by adhering two pieces of paper together and then tying ribbon around to create the pocket. Petal Garden Pocket File card by Leonie Schroder Independent Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Australia

The insert is just one of the 6×4 cards from the Memories & More Petal Garden card pack. Sentiment comes from Layering Love Stamp set and is designed perfectly for this card. Petal Garden Pocket File card by Leonie Schroder Independent Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Australia

As you can see combining the Petal Gard Designer Series paper Pack and the Memories & More Petal Garden Card pack makes for quick and easy cards.

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 …

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

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 ..

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

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.
