Guest Blogger: Rachel Woollard and Brusho

Today we have the second of my guest bloggers for the week, Rachel Woollard (Handstamped by Rachel). Rachel is going to show you some fabulous creations using Brusho, which was a new product introduced in the Stampin' Up! 2018 Occasions Catalogue.

I met Rachel at a craft show in my very first year as a demonstrator. She soon became a regular customer, and soon after a demonstrator on my team. Rachel would have been with me 10 years in June this year. We love having Rachel in the team and she has become a good friend. We often get together and stamp and her little one (now her big one) used to sleep on my couch while we stamped! Rachel has built a great little team of her own and is now one of my Silver Elite Demonstrators. As well as being a great leader, she is very creative and runs regular Stampin' Up! classes in Ringwood East. Here's what she has coming up over the following months:

Occasions and Sale-A-Bration Class
$18.
 
Thurs 8th Feb 12.30-3pm

Rachel has been working hard on getting to know the Brusho products which we introduced into the Occasions Catalogue. I love all the fabulous effects she has achieved on these cards.

Hey there. Just a quick note about an upcoming project class I have coming up in Lilydale, outer East Melbourne.

Make up this fabulous project kit which contains a card storage box, 12 monthly dividers with room to record birthdays, and 16 cards to pop into the box (4 each of 4 designs). Everything supplied and I'll be on hand (with the coordinating stamp set and ink pad colours) to help you.

Great opportunity for some Friday night time out, to meet some new friends and to be creative.

Stampin Up Classes Outer East Melbourne Claire Daly

Cost: Just the cost of the project kit which is $45 - so less than $3 a card for an awesome quality handmade card. Teens (over 12) welcome if accompanied by an adult to help them.


Bonus: Additional kits can be stamped on the night if you want (one for you, one for a gift). Buy two kits and get a free stamp set, or card kit or paper pack (11 different things to choose from).

Stampin' Up! All Inclusive Lots of Happy Cardmaking Kit

All inclusive kits are one of the first things I always seem to be attracted to in new catalogues, and the lots of Happy Kit in the Stampin' Up! 2018 Occasions Catalogue is no exception. I think I love the kits because I can grab them and sit at the kitchen table, or even the lounge coffee table and have everything I need in the cute little box, rather than sitting away from the family while I craft. I also love the simplicity and the variety in the kits.

This kit contains everything you need to make 20 cards (envelopes included too) with 4 each of 5 designs. There is a full colour leaflet showing how each card is put together. It even includes the pencils for the colouring. You can also buy refills for the kits too.

Guest Stampin' Up! Blogger Ros Davidson showcasing Fabulous Flamingo

This week I am having a few days family time, so I have asked a couple of my long term Art With Heart team members to be guest bloggers. 

Today we have Ros Davidson, who celebrated her 10 year anniversary with my team and Stampin' Up! in September 2017. Ros is my longest serving team member and is a fabulous friend, as well as being super creative at both memory keeping and card making.  Ros has been running Stampin' Up! classes for many years in Skye (south east suburb of Melbourne). If you live close by, check out the fabulous range of classes Ros offers.

Make sure you also head over to Ros's blog to check out her amazing creations!

Here's Ros's guest post:

Hi, I’m Ros Davidson and while Claire is off enjoying some family time I have jumped at the chance to guest blog for you today. I am sharing a fabulous flamingo card which I really enjoyed making and had a go at making a stepped up version also. 

Using the palm tree leaf stamp from fabulous flamingo, I created my own designer series paper stamping in tranquil tide, emerald envy and lemon lime twist onto whisper white cardstock.


Stampin Up Fabulous Flamingo

The basic version of the card works great for many occasions as no sentiment has been added. I can see it as a new baby girl card, for you card, happy birthday card and much more.

The stepped up version has gold embossing for a touch of added class along with a birthday sentiment and metallic enamel shapes.

I’ve carried the hand stamped designer series paper inside the card and finished it off with stamps from confetti celebration stamp set.

Thanks Claire for the chance to share my creations with your readers.

Stampin' Up! Beautiful Peacock with copper embossing

Good morning everyone. Today's share is another take on the Stampin' Up! 2018 Saleabration stamp set Beautiful Peacock. I wanted to get a bit more elaborate with those beautiful plumes. Don't forget you can earn this stamp set free during Saleabration (or other choices instead) when you spend $90 during Saleabration. Learn more about Saleabration here.

I've combined Emerald Envy, Powder Pink and Copper Embossing plumes with the main Tranquil Tide stamping of the peacock. I also added in some copper embellishments, which I made by colouring adhesive pearls with the Bronze Stampin Blends alcohol marker.

Here's the colour combination I have used today (in addition to the copper embossing). The Tranquil Tide felt bow embellishment was a perfect finish for this card.
