Painted Kindness

Good Evening … today I have something a little different for you using the Painted Harvest Stamp set – my Painted Kindness card.

Painted Kindness
Painted Kindness using Painted Harvest by Leonie Schroder Independent Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Sydney Australia

I really enjoyed making this card and I wanted it to be something you could give anyone – either male or female. I also wanted the sentiment to be the main focus.

I had originally intended to use the acorn paper from the Painted Harvest Designer Series Paper pack but it was way too busy so opted to make my own patterned background using the stamps.

Now when I was doing the background I stamped off first then one of my images didnt come out too well so I stamped over the top which gave me the darker image around the edges of the acorn.

I quite liked that look so I stamped over all of them to get the shading and depth around the edges.  Sometimes those mistakes turn into cool techniques!

This card also shows how perfectly the Stitched Shapes and Layering Squares framelits coordinate.

I love too how using vellum can give a card more depth just by using it here with the leaves.

This was a favourite at my Painted Harvest class and I hope you like it too!

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 …

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!

Lift Me Up

It’s another rainy day here today and the opportune time to dream about floating away in a Hot Air Balloon.  A little like the one’s I’ve used on today’s card from the Lift Me Up Stamp Set.

Lift Me Up Stamp Set from Stampin' Up! - Leonie Schroder Independent Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Australia

This is such a fun set to create with and you can create anything from quirky and cute to old fashioned and vintage.

Today’s card was one from my Any Occasion – Birthdays class last month …

Lift Me Up Birthday Card by Leonie Schroder Independent Stampin' Up! Demonsrator Australia

I really love how this card turned out and it’s perfect for male or female friends and family. I also love that I could make this card with just using the Lift Me Up stamp set!

The colours I’ve used are Sahara Sand, Tip Top Taupe and Dapper Denim.

Now dont forget Tip Top Taupe will be retiring at the end of May along with the other 2015-2017 In Color’s.  So if you have ink pads and need the reinkers or markers please dont delay in ordering as they tend to sell out before the retirement list even comes out. If you are running low on Cardstock then maybe grab some of that too!

Retiring In Colour Products …

Why not purchase them now and earn more free Saleabration Products?  Remember Saleabration finishes tomorrow …

I’m home all day tomorrow to take your orders!

High Tide

Good Morning!  Today I have for you one of my High Tide cards that I’ll be teaching at this week’s class on Sunday.

I love how quick and easy this card was to make.  The elements go so well together and easily to create this card which is suitable for both males and females alike and a great one to encourage a friend in a time of need.

Take a look at this set …

It’s got 16 stamps which includes 4 sentiments/sayings and the rest can be used to make up many and varied scenes.   It’s going to be great for many male cards and for all those people who, like me, have a thing for Lighthouses.  Not sure what the attraction is but I just love them!

I do hope you like today’s card and would love for you to join us on Sunday for Class – I still have some seats available so just let me know by commenting on this post or via email and I’ll reserve your spot.

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!

Moroccan Notes

Welcome to this week’s Latte Time Out … on a Saturday!

It’s been a busy hectic week so my apologies for not getting this Free Project to you during the week.   I am still trying to catch up!

This week I thought I’d share a little card I found in the Annual Catalogue using the Moroccan Suite

moroccanenvysquare

This card is so sweet and so easy to do and the finished size is 10.5 x 10.5 or 4×4 square.  The Moroccan Designer Series Paper pack has some great design and also makes this card perfect to give to guys too!

I love it so much I decided to make it in a regular Tall card as well …

moroccanenvytallYou’ll find the Free Tutorial on my Latte Project Sheets Page and it also includes the changes you need to make it into a tall card!

Happy Stamping and thanks for stopping by …
