Silent Night with Dazzling Diamonds

This was one of the projects that I taught in last week's card class.  Cynthia Millan's creations were the inspiration behind this card. 

First we stamped the trees and sentiment and sponged the background using blushing bride, soft sky and night of navy.  Then we applied versamark ink all over the panel, sprinkled heat and stick powder and heated.  Finally 'dazzling diamonds' glitter was sprinkled and then heated.  This glitter is so yummy and sparkly!  LOVE.

Please contact me to order S U products:

All orders placed before Christmas will receive a small gift.

Blessing.  Sally

Rudolph Tags

I was inspired by a card made by Billie Moan to make these fun tags.  What a great way of using the antlers from the 'Wonderland' stamp set. Quick, easy and fun!  Have a lovely weekend.

Festive Flower Punch

Here's a couple of projects that I made for a good friend using the 'Festive Flower Punch'.  I was inspired by Laurie Wilson to make this fun sunflower.  It was a cool topper for a pack of seeds.  The bee is fussy cut from English Garden DSP.

To make the tag I used fewer petals with Typeset DSP and curled them in with a bone folder.  The corner detail on the punch is made using the 'Curvy Corner Trio Punch'.

Thanks for looking!  Have a wonderful weekend.  :)  Sally

Hearth and Home Part 5

You may be wondering how many parts there are to my Hearth and Home series.  Well that's the million dollar question!  LOL. 
This window scene was created by using a piece of vellum (Winter Wonderland Designer Vellum Stack) over 'Old Olive' to create a lovely muted green (greener IRL). 

The banner has been fussy cut and is from the 'Endless Thanks' stamp set.

Hearth and Home: Part 4

The Hearth and Home dies are versatile.  Why wouldn't you look out the window and see a pink dinosaur stomping about a flower bed in the rain? :) 

The stamps are 'No Bones about it' (dino) and 'Sprinkles of Life' (rain, flowers and sentiment).  The window die teams up nicely with the brick wall embossing folder.

If you need a demonstrator (NZ) please contact me to order Stampin' Up supplies.  All orders between now and Christmas 2015 receive a free gift. 
Blessings.  xo

Hearth and Home: Part three

I can't claim this card as my own.  Ria Kaire created this beauty.  I like her clever use of the die to create a double window.  Isn't the scene she created neat and I just LOVE the cat in black shimmer paper.
Stamp sets used:  Cozy Christmas and Happy Scenes
Dies used:  Hearth and Home, Festive Fireside and Christmas Greetings 

Thanks Ria for permitting me to share today.

Hearth and Home: Part two

In today's project I used the Hearth and Home window die to create a sweet envelope topper for a friend.  The envelope punch board is a very cool tool and here I have used a sweet print from English Garden DSP.

The stamp sets used are 'Sheltering Tree' and the wee dog comes from 'Jingle all the Way'.  I have used this dog quite a few times in a variety of projects.

Hearth and Home Series: Part One

I have been enjoying the Hearth and Home dies from Stampin' Up!  Welcome to part one of a series focusing on this die set.
This first card is super simple, using Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Paper for the window.  I love how this die adds a quick and easy layer.

The stamp set used is 'Festival of Trees'.  To achieve the brown trunks I used an aqua painter and Crumb Cake ink.

Thanks for looking!  For a supply list to make this card please see below.

Hello Squirrel: Scrapbooking with Into the Woods

On my recent trip to Canada I made a point of keeping a close eye out for furry little creatures.  When I was sitting with a friend and her son at the park, I enjoyed this little guy scampering along the grass and up a tree.  As we don't have squirrels in New Zealand they are a novelty.  I'm sure my Canadian friends must think I'm bonkers!!

The squirrels (non SU dies) have been cut with Black Glimmer Paper.  I have fussy cut a tiny acorn from 'Into the Woods' DSP for two of them to munch on.  The poor little guy on the left is searching LOL.

My background consists of Hardwood and Awesomely Artistic (again!) stamps.

I was pleasantly surprised when I received the 'Into the Woods Elements' as they are soooo lovely IRL.

Have a great weekend.  Off to a scrapbooking class this afo.  Can't wait. xo
