Two out of three FREE cards made ….

These were two of the cards three cards we made on Monday night.

This first card was the trickest of all the cards but I had a few talented cardmakers attend and I wanted to challenge them a little (I hope I did!!).  The new rhinestone brads are stunning and I think the Turquoise brad really made this card.  Of course, I rarely make a card for people that doesn’t have Dazzling Diamonds too.  So you can see the flower sparkling away!   This card was inspired by another card on Splitcoaststampers … check out the other card here.  Thank you for the inspiration!

Time Well Spent, Think Happy Thoughts

The second card was my own design.  I came up with it by deciding I wanted to use our new Wild Wasabi Textured card stock, my new En Francais background stamp (I love it!) and my scallop circle punch (I love it the most!).  Plus I knew I wanted a gift card size card.  I only needed to add Boho Backgrounds, Priceless and Everyday Flexible Phrases to the mix to finish off the card!  phew!

It may sound full of everything, but it was really easy to make … and everyone had the chance to play with my new brayer and my new scallop punch!

Boho Backgrounds gift card

Watch my blog over the next few days and I’ll post the third card we made too.

What a night! Free stuff everywhere …

Wow!  I think we all had a great night last night at my New Catalogue Launch Party.  If you came along, what do you think?

These were the three free gifts I made for everyone who came along …

Paperclips

Aren’t these paper clips cute?  They are so easy to make … you simply need to have the Stampin’ Up! 1″1/4″ and 1″3/8″ punches and an image to stamp in the smaller circle punch.  Then you stick together with Stampin’ Up! Dimensionals with some matching ribbon … and there you have it!

2-4-6-8 Box

I love the new Stampin’ Up! In Color – Groovy Guava!  It really looks stunning with Ballet Blue, don’t you think?  The background stamp is the ever popular Scribble jumbo wheel … these were so easy to make with the jumbo ink cartridge for Ballet Blue.  I saved so much time 🙂

I must also thank my awesome upline, Joanna Wassens, for the design behind this box.  One of the great benefits of being a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator are the fabulous resources you have access to for inspiration.  And Jo’s creation was my inspiration behind this box.  Thanks Jo!

Punch Candy

Do you like the Punch Candy I’ve made?  I adore our new Stampin’ Up! punches … in particular the scallop circle.  It is the best $30.95 I’ve ever spent!  These can be stuck to any project you are working on, be it a card or a scrapbook page.   And this Punch Candy is made using three of the new Stampin’ Up! In Colors … Wild Wasabi, Purely Pomegranate and Groovy Guava.  The paper cut out with the scallop circle punch is the new textured card stock, too.  Oh, it is lovely!

Watch this space and I’ll post the cards we made at the party too …

Would you like to purchase a new punch?  If you would, you could make your own Punch Candy.  Contact me today!  Remember, you can place an order with my from anywhere in Australia 🙂

Have a great day!

Invitation to New Catalogue Launch Party

What do you think of my invitation I made for my New Catalogue Launch party?  Do you like the butterfly or the flowers best?  I love it all!  That’s because I love the stamp set ‘Time Well Spent’ used to make it.  It is a Level 3 Hostess set in the new Catalogue, but it was our Christmas present from Shelli at Stampin’ Up! for all demonstrators last year.   So generous of Shelli!

This is a close-up of the butterfly coloured in with Tempting Turquoise and Dazzling Diamonds.

My invitations are in snail mail today.  Please do consider this your invitation to come along as well.   You need to book in Monday 14th April 2008, 7.30pm onwards in your diaries at 7 Parklea Drive, Parklea, NSW, Australia.
