Stampin' Up! Let's Get Away Project Life for SB102

Hello. Today's post comes to you from the (not so sunny) Gold Coast where the Australian Stampin' Up! Convention is starting today. Lots of unveiling of new products, lots of fun! I'll be bringing you some updates here, but make sure you like my Facebook Stampin' Up! Page  for up to the minute news.

Today is also Stamping and Blogging Design Team Day! I've gone for something a little different today, using one of the Project Life cards for a card front (it comes from the set appropriately named 'Let's Get Away'. I loved that bicycle card as soon as I saw it, and the pre-printed label was perfect to stamp a greeting into. I added

SB102 card

I just added a little extra stamping in Crushed Curry top right to add some more ink splotches to balance the design (Gorgeous Grunge stamp set is perfect for this) and some embellishments and some bling on the wheels.

I also added a small strip of Melon Mambo cardstock at the top and bottom before adhering to the base card (the Project Life card was a 6x4 card trimmed to size). Easy, quick and fun and there are lots more options in any of the Stampin' Up! project Life card sets.

Here's the sketch we had to work with this week.

Stampin' Up! Retiring List 2015: Chalk Talk for SB101

Hello friends.

Today we are saying goodbye to another favourite Stampin' Up! set of mine, Chalk Talk. This will only be available to order until June 2nd, or until sold out (also available in a bundle with matching Framelits). The wood mount set is 25% off. The Beautifully Baroque embossing folder I have used (which covers a whole card front) is also retiring and is 50% off. You can view all the retiring products (at discounts of up to 50% off) HERE in my online Stampin' Up! store.

The sketch is of course, this weeks Design Team sketch from Sandi for Stamping and Blogging. I love this sketch - very simple but leaves room for layers and texture. Embossing and using a range of trims is a great way to add texture to your cards. I have also popped a couple of the layers up with Dimensionals. My colours are Early Espresso, Baked Brown Sugar (retiring), Blushing Bride and Very Vanilla.

Here's the sketch we had to work with this week. It's a great sketch which could be used in many ways. You could use two coordinating DSP pieces for the background, or even turn it 90 degrees clockwise.

Stampin' Up! Watercolour Thankyou and retiring In Colours for SB100

Hello friends,

I'm back from my lovely family holiday in Perth, Western Australia (stay tuned for some pictures) and back into the swing of things with this weeks Stamping and Blogging DT Sketch Challenge - SB 100. What a great milestone for these wonderful weekly sketch challenges.

Here's my card for this week. It's very simple, but with such a large sentiment and a busy background paper, I felt the rest needed to be simple. SB 100 card

My background paper is the lovely DSP pack Something Borrowed which is a range of papers just in Sahara Sand and white, which are great for wedding stationery too. My cardstock is Pistachio Pudding and Crisp Cantaloupe, both of which are part of the soon to retire 2013-15 In Colours. If you haven't completed your collection of any of these colours, now is the time to order inks, refills, cardstock or markers as once the retiring list comes out (in April 21st) they go very quickly. These are the colours that are retiring:
