Glimmer Candles

Good Morning … hope you are well and having a good start to the week.  Today’s card is one from last month’s Window Shopping Class and uses the gorgeous Saleabration Glimmer Paper pack and the Window Shopping Bundle.

Window Shopping Bundle from Stampin' Up! buy now from Leonie Schroder Independent Stampin' Up! Demonstrator

This is such a fun bundle and makes this bright birthday card perfect for any age …

I’ve used the Candle Cut out die from the Window Box framelits to cut out my candles.  I’ve then cut strips of the Glimmer Paper to place behind the candles. The Saleabration pack was used for the Candle Sticks and the Gold Glimmer Paper for the flames.

Did you miss out on the Glimmer Pack during Saleabration?  Would you still like some?  Well it just so happens I have 3 packs here extra so it will go to you for free if you are one of the first three to place a $50 order this month!   They wont last long so be sure to get your order in quickly!

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!

Freshly Brewed Embellished Projects

Good Afternoon .. it’s Wednesday so it must be time for another Freshly Brewed Projects from the Latte Girls and this week we are sharing ways to Embellish your projects.

Recently I’ve started doing Facebook Live videos on my Facebook Business page and on my Private Latte Girls Team group. While we’ve had a few hiccups they’ve been lots of fun which is a little surprising as I dont normally like being in front of the camera.

Last week I decided to pull out and ink up my Tie Dyed Stamp Set from the Occasions Catalogue.  I did this one live on my Stamp A Latte Facebook Page and these are a little fun as I dont normally go from a sample card – just an idea in my head …

Birthday Dude Card using Tie Dyed from Stampin' UP!  created by Leonie Schroder Independent Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Australia

It’s always nice when you do these things live and they actually turn out as you’d imagined them!  The one is done with Daffodil Delight, Tempting Turquoise and Wild Wasabi for a guys Tie Dyed card.

Of course we need one for the ladies …

These cards are so quick and fun and just a little ‘hip’.  The colours I used on this one are Daffodil Delight, Pumpkin Pie and Melon Mambo.

Both the Sentiments come from the Birthday Blast Stamp Set.

Now for some super fun embellishing …

What Will You Stamp – Balloon Adventures

Welcome to another wonderful week of What Will You Stamp Challenges and this week we are creating with the lovely Balloon Adventures ..

WWYS109 - Balloon Adventures - Leonie Schroder Independent Stampin' Up! Demonstrator AustraliaThis stamp set is so much fun! When I first saw it at On Stage last November I thought ‘it’s nice but not sure I need it’.  It’s always amusing to think back on thoughts like these because it’s now ‘an awesome set’ and ‘everyone should have one’!

It also comes in a bundle so you’ll save 10% when you purchase the Stamp Set and Framelits together!  What a great way to earn free Saleabration products!

Here’s what I’ve made for you this week …

WWYS109 - Balloon Adventures - Leonie Schroder Independent Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Australia

I have made a few cards with this bundle already and this time I wanted to focus on the sentiments in this set.  It has some great sentiments and a couple, like the one I’ve used today, that work really well as stand alone sentiments.

I’ve use a couple of Stampin’ Write Marker techniques on this card. Firstly, I inked up my stamp in Bermuda Bay and then used my Island Indigo marker to go over the ‘full’ then stamped it on my Shimmery White cardstock.  I then used my Pool Party marker to partially colour the block words ‘Another Year’ for an ombre look.  It really makes the words pop.

WWYS109 - Balloon Adventures - Leonie Schroder Independent Stampin' Up! Demonstrator AustraliaI’ve punched the large balloon from my Balloon Bouquet punch in the Bermuda Bay Glimmer Paper (Saleabration item – free with a $90 order) and the Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Paper and added them with dimensionals.

The streamer stamp was stamped randomly on the Pool Party layer with Pool Party ink then sponged the edge for a little definition.

Did you know … 

  • You’ll get a free limited edition Saleabration product when you spend $90 with me before the end of March
  • I’m running a Marker Club so with a small monthly commitment over 5 months you’ll end up with ALL our Markers and the Many Marvellous Markers Case plus the new In Colour Marker pack for free in July
  • I host a Live Video Stream on my Facebook Page every Tuesday and demonstrate a card and have a weekly giveaway – click here to go to my Facebook Page

Hope your Day is Sweet

Good Morning!  I have a sweet card for you today using the Cool Treats Bundle so I do hope your day is sweet …

Sweet Card using Cool Treats Bundle from Stampin Up - Leonie Schroder Independent Stampin Up Demonstrator Australia

This card was so much fun to make and the Ice Cream does come to life as you build it and pop that Chocolate shell on top!   Now I’m glad this is just a card ice cream as I’d hate to think how many points would be in a real one being on Weight Watchers!

The Frozen Treats framelits make this card super easy with all the scoops, topping, cherry & cone easy to cut out ..

What Will you Stamp – Delicate Details

Welcome to another What Will You Stamp Challenge. This week we are all designing with the very lovely Delicate Details Saleabration Stamp Set …

This set is just so pretty and I love to create with it.  I’ve had many grab it for free with their qualifying orders with Saleabration.  You just need to place a $90 order to get this sweet set for free!

Everyone loved this card I made with Delicate Details last week . For this week I wanted to do something different than just covering the whole card with the lace images.  I did a little thinking and decided on stamping half the card front …

My colour combination was inspired by the new Saleabration Glimmer Paper Pack. I love how Mint Macaron goes with Sweet Sugarplum!  Such a pretty colour combination. It’s going to be a sad day of mourning when Mint Macaron retires on 31st May.

I’ve also included a 5mm (3/8″) strip of the gorgeous Sweet Sugarplum Glimmer Paper which is from the 2nd Release of Saleabration Products.  In the Glimmer pack you get 12 sheets of 6×6 Glimmer Paper – 4 each of Mint Macaron, Sweet Sugarplum and Bermuda Bay.  It’s a must have!

Do you always have lots of the larger Basic Pearl Jewels leftover?  This is a great way to use them up!

The sentiment comes from the Bookcase Builder from the Occasions Catalogue.

Bookcase Builder Stamp Set

This set is so versatile for all sorts of cards (Baby, Travel, Booklover) and I think it will be very handy in Project Life too!

Dont forget to hop over to the What Will You Stamp Challenge Blog and see what the rest of the Design Team has created.  I’m sure they will wow you with their creativeness! You’ll be able to pop your link in for the card you make with Delicate Details as well!

Freshly Brewed Projects – Delicate Details

Good Afternoon and welcome to another Freshly Brewed Projects from the Latte Girls. This week we are designing with the lovely Saleabration Set Delicate Details.

I love this set and love that you can earn it for free during Saleabration with a $90 order. The set includes 5 different lace images and are a great way to give your projects that vintage feel.

I’ve had this card in my Design Journal for a while and glad to finally get it onto cardstock and share it with you  …

How did she do that?

  1. The card base and top layer are Very Vanilla Cardstock and the middle mat is Pink Pirouette.
  2. Stamp the lace images in Soft Suede.
  3. Using Crumb Cake ink stamp the dotty stamp from Avant Garden all around the lace and up the right corner.
  4. Stamp the Flower Image from Avant Garden in Basic Black.
  5. colour the flowers with Pear Pizzazz, Pink Pirouette, So Saffron and Blushing Bride Stampin’ Write markers.
  6. Fussy cut the flowers with my Paper Snips.
  7. The sentiment from Avant Garden is stamped in Rose Red and cut out with one of the labels from the Project Life Cards and Labels framelits.
  8. I sponged around my sentiment and top layer first in pink pirouette then in Soft Suede.
  9. The bow is made from three lengths of Linen Thread and adhered with a Glue Dot.

Download the printable instructions here.

I do hope you liked my Flowers & Lace card today.  The other set I used for this card is Avant Garden which is another set free through Saleabration.  You can grab both of these sets for free with an order of $180 or more.
