Balloon Celebration

Today my youngest turns 18!  Not sure how that happened when I’m sure just the other week she was 3!  So I’ve made this card for her using the Birthday Celebration Stamp Set and the Happy Birthday Thinlits

Birthday Celebration by Leonie Schroder Independent Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Australia

This was another card included in my Birthday Stamp A Stack on Saturday.  The ladies loved this card.

Birthday Celebration 

I used the small solid balloon from Balloon Celebration and stamped it randomly over my white layer in Flirty Flamingo, Pool Party and Peekaboo Peach.  I wanted the balloon layer to be soft and subtle so stamped off first before stamping onto my card.

shimmery black happy birthday by Leonie Schroder Independent Stampin' Up! Demonstrator

To make my Happy Birthday a little bit special I painted it with my Clear Wink of Stella Brush after cutting it out with the Happy Birthday Thinlit.   I did try to capture the shimmer in the photo but it’s a little hard to see.

Dont forget I have my Facebook Live Card Demonstration today on my Stamp A Latte Facebook Page at 11am (sydney time)  – click here to go to my page now.   If you miss it ‘live’ you can always watch the replay!

Afterwards I’ll be taking my girl out for a sweet treat at Oliver Brown Belgian Chocolate Cafe which opened recently here – I’ll be sure to share photo’s!

Now I wonder if there’s anything Weight Watchers friendly there for me?  hmm looking at the menu online I’m thinking probably not!

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!

Shimmery Spritzed Trees

Happy Thursday to You!  I have a very pretty card for you today using the Carols of Christmas and featuring some pretty, shimmery spritzed trees

Spritzed Trees using Card Front Builder Thinlits by Leonie Schroder Independent Stampin Up Demonstrator Australia

I love the Card Front Builder thinlits which are coming in the new Holiday Catalogue!  Did you know they are part of the Carols of Christmas Early Release this month?

Shimmery Spritzed Trees

I love how these trees turned out ..

Shimmery Spritzed Trees by Leonie Schroder Independent Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Australia

Working and creating with our Shimmery White Cardstock is so much fun and I’ve used it here to make my trees.  I cut a piece  9cm x 7cm  and spritzed it with my Stampin’ Spritzers with Tempting Turquoise and Lemon Lime Twist.

As I mixed my re-inkers with Rubbing Alcohol the cardstock dried fairly quickly then I simply cut my trees out with the dies and the Big Shot.   I managed to get 2 sets of trees from this piece so I had enough trees to make 2 cards!

Spritzed Trees with Splatter by Leonie Schroder Independent Stampin Up Demonstrator Australia

This second card I added a faint splatter from Touches of Texture to make some falling snow.

The sentiment I’ve used on both cards comes from the Star of Light Stamp Set.

Mini Pinch o’ Treat Bags

Good Morning .. I have a super cute project for you today.  They are Mini Pinch o’ Treat Bags and were featured in my July Latte Paper Club.

These bags are so quick and easy to make and would be great for any occasion at all …

Mini Pinch o Treat Bags by Leonie Schroder Independent Stampin' Up! Demonstrator

Now I made mine in two sizes and it’s quite easy to make them in different heights you just need to adjust one of the measurements for the Patterned Paper.

Latte Paper Club

I mentioned this was one of the projects included in my Latte Paper Club for July and I thought I’d share a little about my Latte Paper Club.   It costs just $35 and you’ll receive a pack of Designer Series Paper, Coordinating Cardstock pack, ribbon and embellishment pack and Tutorials for 4 projects to use your paper pack!  The Ribbon and Embellishment pack contains 1 metre each of 3-4 ribbons that coordinate with your pack plus some coordinating embellishments.  Pretty good value for just $35!

Check out my Latte Paper Club page for all the details and to subscribe.  There’s a different pack each month and the pack for August is the gorgeous Coffee Break Designer Series Paper pack!

Mini Pinch o Treat Bags

Here’s how I created these sweet bags …

  1. Cut a piece of Designer Series paper 76mm x 133mm (3″ x 5 1/4″)
  2. Score along the long side at 31mm, 63mm, 89mm and 127mm (1 1/4″, 2 1/2″, 3 3/4″ and 5″)
  3. Rotate 90° and score at 25mm (1″)
  4. Snip tabs up to score line and snip corner piece out (refer to pic below)
  5. Affix Tear n Tape to side piece and one of the bottom tabs and assemble.
  6. Pinch top and secure closed with a clip and a bow.

To make a taller bag simply change the first measurement of the piece of Designer Series paper. My taller bag I cut the paper 102mm x 133mm (4″ x 5 1/4″)

I do hope you have fun creating these sweet bags – they’d make great treats for Birthdays, Halloween or Christmas or even just as a table decoration.

Coffee Helps

Good Morning!  I dont know about you but these winter mornings are chilling me out and it’s definitely a case of coffee helps each day.

Coffee Cafe Bundle

I love the new Coffee Cafe Stamp Set and bundle and thought today I’d share a super quick and easy Notecard which I recently taught at my Weight Watchers meeting …

Sweet Coffee Helps Note Card by Leonie Schroder Independent Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Australia

I started Weight Watchers in March I have made many new friends and found most of us share a love of coffee. It’s comforing that we all feel that it definitely helps us get through the day so this card was perfect for one of our ‘feel’ meetings.

It’s also a great card to just share with a friend and let them know that you are thinking of them through those days that seem just a little harder than others or even just to let them know you care.

This card would also be perfect to do as one of the projects at a party – if you would like to book a party in August or September I’m offering some wonderful booking incentives for you!

Simply contact me to book and we’ll arrange your booking bonus – could be anything from a package of embellishments to an embossing folder or packet of Designer Series Paper!

Freshly Brewed Backgrounds

Good Afternoon and welcome to another Freshly Brewed Projects from the Latte Girls! This week we are creating Backgrounds with our stamps.

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

Backgrounds 

This week our theme is Background Stamps or using any of our stamps to create backgrounds for our projects.  Now we do have some really gorgeous Background Stamps in the Annual Catalogue but I thought for this week I’d share how to create a background using a smaller stamp.

Happiest of Days by Leonie Schroder Independent Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Australia

For the background on this card I simply used the 3 gifts stamp from Happiest of Days and stamped that on my Shimmery White card and then lightly coloured the images with my Blender Pen and Inks.

Happiest of Days is this month’s set for my Latte Card Club – click the image below for all the club details and registration link …

ReMarkable Carols of Christmas Blog Hop

Christmas in July - Carols of Christmas Blog Hop with Leonie Schroder Independent Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Australia

Carols of Christmas

Today I am hopping with 38 other Demonstrators from all over the world to share with you some products using the gorgeous Carols of Christmas Bundle which is coming as a special Holiday Catalogue pre-release for you in August.

I’ve made a card for you today in not so traditional colours …

I’ve done this card in two ways!  First for the new stampers or one you could make multiples of quickly …

The baubles are stamped quickly and easily when they are coloured with our Stampin’ Write Markers.  I’ve used Powder Pink, Sweet Sugar Plum and Pool Party for my baubles on Crumb Cake string.

Now for the stepped up version …

This is the exact same card and I’ve just stamped a few more baubles on a separate piece of Whisper White and cut them out with the coordinating framelits and popped them up with the awesome new mini dimensionals and embellished with our sweet Basic Pearl Jewels.

These simple steps take that pretty card to a WOW card and who doesnt want ‘pretty‘ for Christmas?

Check out what the other ladies have created for you with this gorgeous new bundle …
