Reflection Technique

A little while ago I attended a class taught by my friend Adriana Koch and she taught the reflection technique using 'Beautiful You'.  I had seen cards made using this technique but it was great to try it out for myself.  'Beautiful You' is a lovely set that lends itself to a variety of techniques, such as this one.

These cards are for sale at 'Little Shop on Alabama' in Blehheim NZ.  If you would like supplies to make your own cards please contact me

Daisy Delight

A couple of weeks back I had fun making some customer thank you cards using the new 'Daisy Delight' bundle.  The stamp set and punch are proving very popular!  I had fun playing and trying a few different ways of using the new products.  Come and see..
All of the 3"x3" cards use the daisy punch and Whisper White cardstock.
Sponging the petals created a sweet, soft look.  Applying fine tipped adhesive and sprinkling dazzling diamonds glitter worked a treat.

The DSP across the bottom of the cards is 'Fresh Florals' and the pack contains all of the new in-colours.

From left to right:  The first daisy is stamped, then sponged and fine tipped adhesive is then used over the flower centre.  The middle daisy is made using 'vellum' along with a faceted gem centre.  Strips of the Floral DSP make up the background, .  Envelopes are made with the envelope punch board in coordinating DSP.

The sentiment 'thank you' is also from the Daisy Delight stamp set.  Shown here in 'Berry Burst' (new).

I appreciate my customers.  Thank you to you all. x

'Oh So Eclectic'

Introducing 'Oh So Eclectic' a brand new stamp set which is in the 2017-2018 annual catalogue.  In fact samples feature on the front cover of the new catalogue.  I was lucky enough to win this set at On-Stage Auckland and I really like it! 
Today's share is the swap I made recently for our wider SU team.  The colour combo is:  Powder Pink (new), So Saffron, Soft Sky, Berry Burst (new) and Basic Gray.   

I fussy cut the leaves (as the matching dies weren't available when I was making the swaps).  The dies will be very useful for future projects! 

A final note of thanks to the ladies who came to my class this morning.  I really enjoy our mornings together!

Tranquil tide and Seasons

The brand new catty is really lovely.  Contact me for your copy ($5 or free for existing customers):

'Colorful Seasons' is a new set and it is just stunning.  I throughly enjoyed making these cards, which are CASED from Jessie Holton.  The sympathy sentiment comes from Rose Wonder.

I have to say that the five new in colors are my most FAV in colors since I became a demo 3 years ago.  'Tranquil Tide' and 'Powder Pink' feature here accompanied by the neutral 'Sahara Sand'.

I have two spaces left in my class next Friday.  Bookings essential

'See' you soon!

Wood Crate Party Favours

It's Birthday central at our place at the moment with two of our sons sharing the same special day.  I had so much fun making these party favours for my 'baby's' fourth birthday party. 

The monster stamp is from 'Yummy in My Tummy'- retiring soon.  The sweet crate is from a new set 'Wood Crate Framelit Dies' which will be available for purchase come June the 1st.  I die cut the crates from Crumb Cake Cardstock and stamped them with the 'Hardwood' stamp before assembling. 

There is room in each crate to add a few treats for the little people.  I'm thinking a small bouncy ball and balloon to take home.

Like the fresh greeny colour?  It's the new In-Colour 'Lemon Lime Twist'.  It sure is yummy!  I've used 'Tempting Turquoise' and 'Tangerine Tango' on the other monsters. The paws are coloured in 'Powder Pink' (also new),

Not long now until these furry guys will go to their new homes AND in just over a week the new Stampin' Up! annual catalogue goes live.  Exciting!

Moon Baby and introducing Powder Pink

Moon Baby is a super cute stamp set.  Thank you to Paula Dobson as she inspired these sweet baby cards.

The clouds are from the 'Lift me Up' set and I have heat embossed them in white. 

The new in-colour 'Powder Pink' is just gorgeous.  This will be available June 1st.  To colour the images I have stamped on Shimmery White cardstock and used an aqua painter with SU ink.  My favourite method of colouring!

The stitched framelits are so useful.  Quite possibly my most used dies.  I love them.  The set has four squares, four circles and four ovals.  The scalloped circle is from the 'Layering Circle Dies' set.

These little babys are heading off for sale in the Little Shop on Alabama, Blenheim NZ.

Have a lovely weekend!

Tiny Treat Boxes

Today's share is some tiny treat boxes I made for my lovely mum to sell.  I believe there are still some for sale at the 'Little Shop on Alabama' in Blenheim.  
I am pleased that the 'Bow Builder Punch' and 'Clear Tiny Treat Boxes' will still be available in the next Annual Catalogue!

Each clear box contains two beautiful handmade in NZ soaps that are simply divine!  The little tag is attached with 'Linen Thread' (a staple in my stash!).

I made futher boxes inspired by my friend Brenda's design.  These kraft boxes are retired but the following supplies are continuing into the new catalogue:
  • Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Paper (bow)
  • Bow Builder Punch
  • 5/8" Burlap Ribbon
  • Very Vanilla 1/2" Lace Trim
  • Birthday Blossoms Stamp set (sentiment)
  • Foil sheets in Gold, Silver and Copper

It's a dreary day here in Nelson.  Stay warm!
