Stampin Up Awesome Bokeh

Hi guys

Stampin Up Awesome Bokeh

A new technique today,  in my Stampin Up Awesome Bokeh technique class.

Do you know what Bokeh is?  Its a technical photographic term and refers to the light bubbles seen in photographs.  This is a great technique to try and its one that gets very messy.  So there were lots of inky fingers around.  My perfect kind of day.

I will be doing a photographic tutorial on this in a future post so you can see how its one.  (One day I may pluck up the courage to do videos.  Would you guys like that?)

I just love the colour combinations used in these cards.  Adore how the awesomely artistic stamp set is ideal for this technique.  The ferns and dragonfly are just perfect for this kind of card.

Today is Wednesday, so the new Weekly Deals are launched today for this week.  Click this link to see what’s there and place you order through my online shop.

Stampin Up A Tissue

Hello peeps

Stampin Up A Tissue

A tissue, a tissue, we all fall down.  Memories of childhood nursery rhymes come to mind when I titled this one Stampin Up A Tissue.  But seriously today’s make is using the resist emboss technique.  Its a really cute tissue box cover to match the gift card I made yesterday.

Again I have used the lovely Tip Top Taupe from the 2015/17 In Colours and Blackberry Bliss from the 2014/16 In Colours.  These two sets of colours (10 in total) blend seamlessly together to give an amazing colour palette.

How gorgeous is that.  It fits over a standard size square box of tissues (available in most Supermarkets)  Again I have used the new labels thinlets dies to create my tissue hole and the surrounding trim.

I love the emboss resist technique and adore how the shading with the sponges highlights different ares of the box.  I have used blackberry bliss, tip top taupe and crumb cake to do this.  I have also stamped over the top as well.

Don’t forget to check back tomorrow for more inspiration.

Stampin Up Cucumber Crush Dahlia

Hi everyone.

STAMPIN UP CUCUMBER CRUSH DAHLIA

Stampin Up Cucumber Crush Dahlia is a combination of one of my new favourite 2015/17 In Colours combined with a gorgeous stamp.  This card is fresh and delightful to look at.

STAMPING UP CUCUMBER CRUSH DAHLIA

As you can see I have used a whisper white card base.  And have then matted some of the wonderfully versatile Envelope Paper, distressed and curled, ripped and rolled.  I then stamped my main image onto another piece of cardstock, before fussy cutting and them adhering to the front of my card with dimensionals.

You’ve now got your new catalogue,

grab yourself a coffee and settle down to enjoy a great read.   Its packed with lots of inspiring pictures and products, I just know you’ll be itching to get creative.

One of the perks of being a demonstrator (hobby or otherwise) is that we get to play with new products during the pre-launch month.  Last month was no exception.
