Delicate Doilies birthday card

This was a card I made last year when I first played with stamp set Delicate Doilies. I just love this stamp set! 

To make this card I stamped the images from Delicate Doilies in Crumb Cake, Soft Suede and Wisteria Wonder first before I put the paper through the Perfect Polka Dots embossing folder in the Big Shot.  I sponged the edges of all but the bottom strip of Very Vanilla with Soft Suede ink including the strip of Very Vanilla punched with the Lace Ribbon border punch and the strip of Wisteria Wonder (also stamped with Delicate Doilies in Soft Suede) which has been cut with Tasteful Trim Bigz XL die with the Big Shot.

The sentiment was stamped using the stamp set Bring on the Cake.

2011 Stampin’ Up! Retirement List (Australian)

I simply cannot believe how time flies by – it’s been a year since our new catalogue came out (well, really, our soon-to-be-old catalogue) and now it’s time to say goodbye AGAIN!  As always happens on the eve of every new Stampin’ Up! catalogue I’ve seen, hundreds of products from the 2010-2011 Idea Book & Catalogue will retire.  Now is your opportunity to buy the “must-haves” on your wish list … before they’re gone!

You can check out the list HERE, and you’ll see some items are 25% off and a few are 40% off.  So sit down with a cuppa and peruse the list with pleasure 🙂  Remember too, items on the Retired List are only available while stocks last OR until 31 August 2011 (whichever comes first).

I’m sad to see some of my favourite stamp sets on the list – Friends 24/7, Eastern Blooms, Pun Fun and the Extreme Guitar/Extreme Surfboard stamp sets. 

But if you like Designer Series Paper and want to be prepared for Christmas this year – be excited!  Check out Jolly Holiday DSP – only $10.17 – that’s only $0.85 a sheet for 12 double sided sheets – BARGAIN!!  But hurry, this one is bound to fly off the warehouse shelves.

I’m also surprised to see some of the punches going 😦  and the Sanding Blocks (nooo!!) …

Anyhow, once you’ve made up your mind with what you “must have” (go on, you know you must!) – email me with your order at rachel.capps@yahoo.com.au.

Happy stamping 🙂

Belated Happy Mother’s Day

I hope all mum’s had a lovely day yesterday and were spoilt royally! 🙂  This is a card I made for my Mother-in-Law’s Mother’s Day card.  We had a relaxing day at home with my MIL and the kids 🙂 

I was inspired to make this card by the talented Michelle Le-Breton.  You can see Michelle’s elegant card here.  This card was also one of the make-and-takes my guests made at my Autumn/Winter Mini Catalogue launch.  I had a small group of lovely ladies (much smaller than usual), so I was able to spoil my guests with some extra nice accessories.  It was a fun night!

To make this card, we used the colours Rich Razzleberry, Kiwi Kiss and Whisper White.  The WW background was textured using the Big Shot with the Perfect Polka Dots Textured Impressions Embossing Folder.  The damask stamp is from Friends 24-7, and the sentiment from Teeny Tiny Sentiments (I love this versatile stamp set!). At the centre of the damask, we’ve punched out some Bella Rose DSP and then adhered it to a Build-a-Brad.  I love the touch of Kiwi Kiss with the Rich Razzleberry, don’t you?!  Here is a close up:

Last day of Sale-a-bration & Summer Mini

Well, today is the last day of Sale-a-bration and the Summer Mini.  If you haven’t yet received all the Sale-a-bration stamp sets you want, then today is your last chance to purchase $100 worth of product to earn one more Sale-a-bration stamp set on your wish list.  Please email me before 10.00pm today with your last Sale-a-bration order!

As promised, this is another card I made using the emboss resist technique.  I love the birdcage from Happy Moments that I’ve used on this card!  The birdcage is sooo sweeeet 🙂  And I also love the “hello” sentiment, from the Hello Again stamp set.  Today is also the last day of the Summer Mini Catalogue, and so it’s also the last day you can purchase Hello Again.  The flowers on the background were sparkled up with a touch of Tombow glue and some Olive Fine Supernova glitter – I love bling!

This is another card from the same class – I encourage trying different images and products in classes from what I have available.  In this card, I changed the Fine Supernova glitter to Orange.  Naturally, the Orange coordinates perfectly with this card!

Skater 16th birthday

This is another card I made for my God son’s birthday.  Skater boy!

I used by Wide Oval punch with a strip of DSP from the Simply Scrappin’ Kit Hoppy Memories for the skateboard.  I used diamond shaped brads (retired) for the skateboard trucks and Brilliant Blue buttons (retired) for the wheels. 

The colours are Brilliant Blue and Basic Grey.  The DSP is Kaleidoscope from the current Summer Mini catalogue.  The “look who’s turning” is from the stamp set On Your Birthday, and the “16” is from Best Friends Numbers (retired).

Stamp-a-Stack – Birthday cards

These are a set of cards made for a recent Stamp-a-Stack.  Gosh, we had a ball!  There was even a unique bloke gracing our presence.  I say, “gracing”, as he was an awesome cardmaker!  His creations wowed us all.  LOL!

I love this set of cards.  The layout for the Regal Rose, Pink Pirouette, Riding Hood Red and Lovely Lilac card worked well with the Big Birthday stamp set.  The variety of cards everyone made on the night excelled all my expectations.  And, the Dazzling Diamonds rivalled the sun’s sparkle.

The other card was inspired by Lin Mei.  Thanks for your wonderful idea, Lin Mei!  I think the Kiwi Kiss/Tangerine Tango combination does solid justice to Funky Forest.  And colouring in the trees with marker pens is so much fun!  The best thing about this card is that everyone could tailor their cards to suit the sentiments from either Short & Sweet or Sincere Saluations.

Why not book a Stamp-a-Stack class with me and make 10 cards (of 2 different designs) for only $20 (envelopes $3 extra)?  That’s only $2 a card (or $2.30 including the envelope).  Does the idea appeal to you?  Then, what should you do?  First, make sure you live not too far away from me!  Then, you organise a minimum of 4 people to come around to your house and have some fun making cards.  I come to you and provide everything, including a hostess gift for you.

Thanks for looking.

Classic Stars

Do you have the Classic Stars jumbo wheel yet?  If you don’t, you should!  Well, I will qualify … particularly if you have kids!  I think it makes great boy and girl birthday cards.  Together with the coordinating star punches, it’s a must have at only $AUS15.95.

This is a card I made to demonstrate heat embossing, using silver embossing powder.  The SU silver embossing powder is gorgeous! You must try it.  Really.  You must.  Together with the silver, I’ve made this card using the colours Lovely Lilac, Rose Red and Whisper White.  The wide grosgrain ribbon is in coordinating Rose Red.  And the lovely patterned paper under the ribbon?  Well, that’s from the Sweet Nothings Simply Scrappin’ kit.

The sentiment is from the stamp set Think Happy Thoughts.  The little star stamped in Lovely Lilac ink is from Seasons of Joy – what a versatile stamp set!  There is a neat little trick to the punched out “outlined” star.  Why not sign up to receive my monthly newsletter today?  Then you’ll learn the tip in my June newsletter.
