High Tide

I'm so pleased that the 'High Tide' set continued into the new annual catalogue.  It lends itself to some beautuful sea scenes.  Today's share is a card I taught earlier this year.  It is CASED from Tina Zinck 'The Serene Stamper'.  Her creation can be found here

The card is created by masking and sponging with a bit of heat embossing thrown in!  It's a great set for making cards for the men in our lives too.  The Stampin' Up! inks used for this creation are:
  • Whisper White
  • Cherry Cobbler
  • So Saffron
  • Crushed Curry
  • Watermelon Wonder (retired)
  • Perfect Plum
  • Night of Navy
  • Memento Black

I have two spaces left for my July 7th card class (10-12:00) if you are local to the Nelson/Tasman region.  Please contact me for more information.

Have a great weekend folks.  I'm looking forward to teaching a couple more masculine cards this afternoon.  Sally x

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!
