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.

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!

Masked Leaves using Paisley and Posies from Stampin’ Up!

Good Afternoon

I have another card for you this afternoon using the Paisley and Posies Stamp Set.  This time its for the guys and I’ve done some more masking.

This will be one of the cards that we’ll be doing in tomorrow’s Paisley & Posies Class plus it’s today’s free Latte Project Sheet!

As you can see, today’s masking is a little different to the masking I did in my last post.  Masking cards the way I’ve done today is quick and easy and gives more dimension to your cards.

I hope you like today’s project and make sure you grab that free download!

Miss You ….

Good Afternoon!

Well after a day and a bit with no internet at home I am back!  I hope you liked both the Blog Hops I was in yesterday and clicked through to see what the other ladies had made – if not, it’s ok – you can do it after you’re finished with this post!

Do you have friends that have moved away or maybe their circumstances have changed and you just want them to know that you miss them and are thinking of them?  Well there’s no better way to do that than to send a handmade card and today’s card is perfect to tell someone you miss them …

treesplatter

This is one of the cards included in my Totally Trees Stamps To Go Kit.   It’s quick and easy and suitable for both female and male friends and family.

I am loving the Totally Trees stamp set and creating with it – there’s lots of elements as well as the trees in the set and it actually has 27 stamps in that set so it’s great value at just $45 – that’s less than $2 per stamp!

I know when you get this set you’ll love it too!

World Card Making Day

Good Evening 🙂

Yes I know yesterday was World Card Making Day but I’ve spread it over the whole long weekend to ensure we cover all the timezone! My story and I’m sticking to it!

Today I hosted my first Card Buffet and I must say we all had fun creating and chatting and searching for a small photopolymer stamp!

One of the cards that was a favourite today was this one 3leavebdayThis was one of the cards from September’s Birthday Club Class and uses the Flourish Thinlits and the sentiment is from Butterfly Basics.

It’s a great card for the guys although I do know some ladies that would like this for their birthday too!

It’s rather quick and easy and the little touch of Copper Metallic Thread gives it a little pizzazz.

3leavebday2Now I have another Card Buffet Session tomorrow which starts at 11am and would love for you to come along and make some cards to send for World Card Making Day plus help raise some funds for Ronald McDonald House Charities.

Don’t forget the bonus World Card Making Day specials – hurry they finish 5th October!
