Masculine Grunge Rock Birthday

This is the birthday card I made for my brother’s birthday last year.  I just love the new stamp set in the Summer Mini – Grunge Rock – there just isn’t enough time in the day to play with it!

I based the card around the colours Basic Black, Crumb Cake and Very Vanilla.  I used the Textured Impressions Embossing Folder, Square Lattice, through my Big Shot with some Very Vanilla cardstock.  I stamped that embossed cardstock randomly with the diamonds from Grunge Rock.  And then I used the new Gold Glow Smooch Spritz to finish off the background.


For the centre piece, I used the standard wheel, Music Notes stamped in Crumb Cake, and rolled in randomly across the Very Vanilla cardstock.  I stamped the guitar from Grunge Rock in Basic Black and cut it out.  I stuck it on the Music Notes using dimensionals.  For the sentiment, it was stamped in Basic Black on Crumb Cake cardstock, and I sponged the edges in Basic Black ink.

Birthday Bag in a Box

I was really inspired by my Secret Santa gift from Rachel Jackson before Christmas.   In case you didn’t see her gift, click on this link to see her wonderful creation.  I loved it so much, I made a copy of it for a birthday gift, which you can see below.  And for another birthday gift, I made a taller version using SU’s Lap of Luxury Designer Series Paper.

For both boxes I used Basic Black textured paper and the stamp set Well Scripted (only available in the current Summer Mini until 31 March 2011) for the sentiment.  I also used a vintage brad on each sentiment and the Round Tab punch to tie on the Basic Black Satin Ribbon at the top.

For the sentiment tag on the Lap of Luxury Bag in a Box, I also used a scrap leftover from my sister’s wedding invitations.  So it was already embossed with the Big Shot and the Vintage Wallpaper embossing folder.  And I sponged the edges of the tag with Concord Crush and sprayed it with my new Gold Glow Smooch Spritz – which I adore!  Here is a close-up of the sentiment.

For the other box, I used, of course, the same paper as Rachel – Love Letter DSP with a Very Vanilla tag, which I had sponged the edges with in Basic Black.

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!

Sale-a-bration Summer calendars

These are the calendars I made as free gifts to all my guests who were kind enough to join me for my Sale-a-bration Summer mystery party.  Thanks again to everyone who came along – it was lovely to create with you!

I made these calendars with the Kaleidoscope DSP paper (available in the Summer Mini) and based the calendars around the colours from this bright DSP.  So I based my gifts largely around the Bold Brights colour family, even though Kaleidoscope colours are Tempting Turquoise, Green Galore, Summer Sun, Only Orange, Pink Passion and Pixie Pink.  I really love this flower paper from Kaleidoscope!

I also used the so so so versatile Sale-a-bration stamp set, Vintage Labels, for the calendars.  This is my new favourite stamp set!  If you too would like to own Vintage Labels, then email me today with your order over $100 and you can have it for FREE!  Check out all the Sale-a-bration stamp sets you earn for FREE here – you only have to spend over $100 to earn one – NO LIMITS!

Haitian Disaster Relief

Help Haiti!

On 12 January, 2010 a magnitude 7.0 earthquake struck Haiti, leaving in its wake devastation so overwhelming that the Haitian people and their leaders can only look for help from the outside to cope. Stampin’ Up! is a company that has a heart and they have a plan to help Haiti too.  We can help make a difference in the lives of those who continue to suffer from the effects of this earthquake by purchasing the I {Heart} Hearts stamp set (available in the Summer Mini).

From now until 28 February 2010, $2 from every I {Heart} Hearts stamp set you purchase will be donated to the American Red Cross’ Haiti Reflief and Development Fund. The Red Cross is already well-established in Haiti, and this money will be used to provide immediate relief and long-term support through supplies, technical assistance and other support to help those in need.

To help raise lots of money and encourage you to help as well, I will be removing my demonstrator discount. That brings the stamp set to only $34.36 (plus P&H).

And, with Sale-a-bration starting on Monday, this set can count towards your $100 order.

Card in a Box Valentine

Last week, Jo had her team’s usual holiday get together at her house.  All we had to do was bring along a “card in a box” and a part of the yummy lunch we enjoyed.  So this was my “card in a box”.  We made 6 cards each on the day (not including our own) and had 7 kids running around and playing, so nicely together, around us.  It was a lovely day!

For this card I used the stamp set Hello Again, available in the Summer Mini, and also the Hostess Level 2 stamp set, Occasions for All.  The colours are, naturally, white, black and red!  And although you can’t see it in the picture, the white and black card stock is textured.
