Stampin' Up! Time for Tea

There's something about a cup of tea isn't there? I think it makes me instantly thing of relaxing, soothing and happy catch ups. I think it's because of this association that I always tend to be drawn to any creative supplies with a tea theme too.

Here's a card I created using the Time for Tea bundle in the 2018/2019 Stampin' Up! Annual Catalogue.

Stampin' Up! Reverse Words for Saleabration 2017 - Four Ways!

Hello there. Today I am showcasing one of the recently released extra Stampin' Up! Saleabration items, the Reverse Words stamp set. Here's four ways to use this stamp set. 

For the first two cards, I have teamed it with the Mixed Drinks stamp set (see links below) - it has some great images and sentiments which match the cheers theme! I particularly love this sentiment. My colours here are Smoky Slate and Sweet Sugarplum with Basic Black. I love how the Reverse Words stamp sets so cleverly combines the watercolour wash look with the crispness of the reverse word.

For this card, I have made a cocktail using lots of stamps from the Mixed Drinks stamp set (so easy to line up with the photopolymer). Another great greeting to match the cheers theme. My reverse word is stamped in Sweet Sugarplum and I have used Mint Macaron, Melon Mambo and Crushed Curry on the cocktail.

This one is a birthday card which was super easy to make. I just punched a couple of balloons from the Bermuda Bay Glimmer Paper using the Balloon Punch. The greeting is from the Custom Tee stamp set. I just made the balloon strings using a Project Life marker. My ink colour here is Mint Macaron.

I've needed lots of these cards for my awesome team and their promotions this month. It was quick and easy to create. The sentiment is from the Mixed Drinks stamp set and the reverse word is in Mint Macaron again. I used the Medium Star Punch to cut a star from the Sweet Sugarplum glimmer paper and attached some silver sequin trim.

Stampin' Up! Saleabration 2016 card - Botanicals For You

Hello there.

Finally starting to feel like I'm settling back into routine. It's the start of my boys second week back at school, and I think I've mastered the book covering, term sports signups / payments, the getting back to waking up at a decent hour (OK, so not quite mastered that one, lol).

On Friday night I exhaled after the first week back and did some creating. So nice to just spend some 'me' time doing something I love.

Stampin' Up! Remarkable You for SB114

I LOVE a good floral image to colour, so I was all over the new Stampin' Up! set Remarkable You when it appeared in the 2015 Annual Catalogue. Today's card features one of the flowers (which we think is a lotus flower or waterlily) water coloured, along with a greeting from the set. It's based on this week's Stamping and Blogging Design Team sketch SB114.

Here's the colour combination I have used today.

Stampin' Up! RemarkableYou by Claire Day Melbourne Australia for SB114

Tips for recreating this card:

  • I water coloured the floral image using an Aqua painter (see all supplies below) and the ink inside the lid of the Rose Red ink pad.
  • Stamp your image in Jet Black Stazon so you can watercolour without the image outline smudging.
  • Use our high quality Watercolor Paper for a great result. It really does make a difference as you can blend over and over without the paper pilling.
  • The Triple Banner Punch makes cutting the banner ends on this card a breeze.
  • Both flowers were cut out using our super sharp Paper Snips. The left hand flower is popped up with Dimensional foam dots (not the stem though).
  • Stamp an extra bit of the leaf pattern onto Cucumber Crush and cut out a few leaves to layer over the greeting banner.

Here's today sketch that the lovely Sandi MacIver has given us to play with this week:
