A recent Stamp-a-Stack

These are the cards I designed for my last Stamp-a-Stack.  One of the ladies coming along wanted to make a wedding card, so I tailored the SAS around Tempting Turquoise and Basic Grey.  I thought the Tempting Turquoise lended a real “Tiffany’s” feel to the card … what do you think?

And the second card was designed for boys 🙂  And, so, you can see how a simple layout and colour scheme can be used for two entirely different cards.

The stamp sets I used for the wedding card were Fun & Fast Notes, Together Forever and Sincere Salutations.  Although you can’t see the Sincere Salutations, it was an option for anyone who wanted to make another type of card with Fun & Fast Notes and Sincere Salutations.

The boy’s card used the stamp sets Choo Choo (available in the Spring Mini), Short & Sweet and Fun & Fast Notes.

Choo Choo … the Spring Mini is here!

Well, today is the first day of Stampin’ Up!’s Spring Mini Catalogue.  You can view it online here.  I think the Mini is inspirational this year, with lovely colour combos, stamp sets with a reasonable price tag and exciting accessories!

One of the things I love about being a Stampin’ Up! demo is getting together and sharing ideas and tips with the team I’m lucky enough to be a part of – the Creative Stampers.  During school holidays we have a ‘Card in a box’ day, and this school hols, the cards were beautiful!  This was my contribution to the day (sorry I took so long to post it, Christie! Happy making!) …

This card uses the new stamp set, Choo Choo, a must for anyone with little boys!  But, as you can see, it is also a great Christmas card.  To add a Christmas element, I’ve used the stamp sets, Spotlight on Christmas, Best Yet, and Short and Sweet.  The colour combo is Old Olive, Chocolate Chip, Real Red and Baja Breeze – inspired by the new DSP in the Spring Mini, Ski Slope.  Of course, a little touch of sparkle makes a great Christmas card, and to do this, I used Tombow glue and SU White Chunky Sprinkles.

If you would like to place an order from the Spring Mini from anywhere in Australia then email me today.
