Freshly Brewed Projects – Retiring Stamps

Good Afternoon and thank you for joining us for another Freshly Brewed Projects from the Latte Girls Blog Hop. This week we are designing with Retiring Stamps

This year the Retiring List is huge so I had plenty to choose from!  You can check out all the retiring stamps here.  So with so many stamps I really couldnt go past Builder Birdcage and Gorgeous Grunge.

Builder Birdcage & Gorgeous Grunge ..

I love these two sets and I’ve had a little fun making today’s card for you …

Builder Birdcage & Gorgeous Gunge fun with Retiring Stamps by Leonie Schroder Independent Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Australia

How fun is this card?  It’s a little like those two little birds caused a wee bit of trouble with all those cages.  It’s always the ‘little things’ that cause the most trouble isnt it?

I’ve used the fine splatter stamp over the area the cages with Pink Pirouette and Pool Party as a soft way to break up the white background

The sentiment comes from Cottage Greetings – another retiring Stamp Set.

Now head over to see what Libby and Narelle have created for you this week

What Will You Stamp – That’s the Tag

Hello and Welcome to another What Will You Stamp Challenge – this week we are using the lovely That’s the Tag Stamp set from the Occasions Catalogue ..

What Will You Stamp #114 - Leonie Schroder Independent Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Australia

It’s great to be back designing for the What Will You Stamp Challenge Blog again! I needed the break with all the preparations for On Stage and such!

That’s the Tag …

This set is such a sweet little set and when you bundle it with the coordinating Framelits you have the tools to make some gorgeous cards and tags.

That's the Tag Bundle - Leonie Schroder Independent Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Australia

Now just so you know, this bundle is retiring so if you’d like to get it you’ll need to purchase it before the end of May as it wont be going into the new Annual Catalogue.  You can make sweet cards for all occasions with this little set!

Now I wanted to do something a little different with the stamps today and I thought a nice little wreath card would be perfect …

That's the Tag Wreath Card by Leonie Schroder Independent Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Australia

I must say I do love how this card turned out! Can you spy any sneak peek products on this card?  There are four – can you spot them?

While I was making this card a friend came to mind so I think I’ll be sending it to her – she’s a demonstrator friend in USA who’s just had her sister lose her battle with cancer.   Just so she knows I am thinking of her and praying for her family.

Now while I’m sending this as a sympathy card you could use it for any occasion as this set has over 8 different sentiments you could use!

So did you spot the  new products?  

Here they are …

  1. Powder Pink Cardstock layer
  2. Blushing Bride Double Stitched Ribbon
  3. Berry Burst Classic Ink Pad (sentiment and flowers)
  4. Powder Pink Stampin’ Write Marker (to colour the flowers)

I hope you like today’s little card and it’s the one we’ll be doing this Wednesday for Coffee & Card so be sure to pop from 11.30am to make yours!  $5 gets you this card and a cup of coffee – I may even pop something into the oven to go with that coffee!

Thanks for stopping by and dont forget to hop over to the What Will You Stamp Challenge Blog to see what the other ladies have created for you this week!

Delightful Daisy Sneak Peek

Good Afternoon and welcome to another sneak peek from the upcoming Annual Catalogue using the very Delightful Daisy Product Suite.

I had the huge honour of presenting this new Suite at On Stage in Sydney and while I was super nervous on stage in front of 500 or so other Demonstrators I did love the opportunity.

Delightful Daisy Suite

Delightful Daisy Product Suite -Leonie Schroder Independent Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Australia

You will love the Delightful Daisy suite!  The Delightful Daisy bundle includes a Stamp Set and Punch which is great for those on a budget or new to stamping. The Delightful Daisy Product Suite also includes coordinating Designer Series Paper Pack, Cardstock pack, ribbons and new faceted Rhinestones.  It’s all, as the suite is called, Delightful!

This was the make and take that everyone got to make …

It was quick, easy and fun to make and everyone got to try the Stamp Set, Punch, Papers, Ribbon and those gorgeous faceted Rhinestones.

Here’s another card I made using the make and take packet but just a little different ..

Freshly Brewed Projects – Backgrounds with Stamping

Hello and welcome to another week of Freshly Brewed Projects from the Latte Girls! This week we are sharing ways to create your own Backgrounds with Stamping.

I do love to share different ways to use your stamps and how versatile they really can be.   Creating your own backgrounds with your stamps is very quick and easy and makes matching projects easy!

Today I’m using a little of the old and a little of something new coming!   If you havent checked out the Retiring List you can download it here.

So the two stamp sets I’ve used for today’s card are Gorgeous Grunge (retiring – insert sad face ) and Crafting Forever (a gorgeous new set coming in the new Annual Catalogue)

Crafting Forever - Leonie Schroder Independent Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Australia

How gorgeous are those brushes?  This set is full of all sorts of crafty things and it’s our new Angel Policy Stamp Set and we got it as our gift at Centre Stage along with a gorgeous new Apron.

I used a few different splatters from Gorgeous Grunge to create my background. I just subtle colours so I could stamp the sentiment straight onto my card and it wouldnt get lost in the background.

I wont lie to you, I will miss Gorgeous Grunge very much as its perfect for making all sorts of backgrounds and adding a little here and there to your projects.  If you dont have Gorgeous Grunge and would like it I’d suggest you order it sooner rather than later so you dont miss out – so much has sold out already!

Now it’s time to head over to visit Libby and Narelle to see what they’ve created for you this week.

Remember to check out the Retiring List and get your orders in early so you dont miss out on the products you want.
