Glitter Window Elementary Elegance Card

 Here's another lovely idea for the Sale-a-bration stamp set Elementary Elegance. I've used a technique which I have shown before on my blog - glitter windows.

To create the window, stamp your image on your card, then punch or cut out the shape/window. Turn over the card and apply sticky tape across the cut out area. Turn it back over and sprinkle Dazzling Diamonds glitter over the sticky area and tap off excess. Your glitter window is created! Stamp the images you want to view through your window on card bigger than your window and attach underneath the window. Finish your card!

Colours used here are Tempting Turquoise, Pacific Point and Whisper White.
Stamps are Elementary Elegance, Clearly For you and Artistic Etchings.
Embossing folder is Finial Press.

Hope you have fun trying out this technique!

Triple Treat Flower and Sale-a-bration DSP

I saw a card similar to this somewhere on the net and I am sorry but I cannot remember where, but thankyou to the creator for the inspiration to make this card.
 The Triple Treat Flower stamp is one of the a la carte stamps from Stampin'Up! so what this means it is a single stamp for you to buy and you can do so much with it, check out the post here. For this card I first stamped the flower in Poppy Parade and punched it out using the Fancy Flower punch, then I restamped the flower in Pool Party and punched out the inner flower using the 5 Petal flower punch. Then a Sale-a-bration Everyday Enchantment brad in the middle, adhere it all to a 2.5 inch circle punched out using that size punch and mounted onto Everyday Enchantment DSP.  The background matts are Pool Party and Very Vanilla.
The words come from Fabulous Phrases.

I'd be very happy to show you how to create this card in your workshop if you would like to book in having one with me. You can email me at jannic@bigpond.com to make a date with me.

Sale-a-bration - Sprinkled Expressions Set

Here's another set of samples for you this time using the Sprinkled Expressions Sale-a-bration stamp set. For my first play with this set I decided to try using them with the rockn'roll technique. I used Pink Pirouette and Poppy Parade inks on the heart stamp and Calypso Coral and Poppy Parade on the flower stamp.

Thanks for looking!

Fabulous Florets 21st Birthday Card

Today I'd like to show off the pretty card I made for my daughter's 21st Birthday. I used a lovely stamp set from the current Summer Mini catalogue called Fabulous Florets. This is such a versatile set as it can be left as an outline image or coloured or mixed with the solid stamped images depending on the look you desire for your card/page.

The centre image has been created using the gorgeous glimmer paper from the mini catalogue. The red and silver paper/card is great for lots of projects and it doesn't shed glitter when put through the Big Shot as I have done here to cut out the numbers. The numbers come from Timeless Type Junior Alphabet dies for the Big Shot.

Colours used are Real Red, Tangerine Tango and Certainly Celery for card and inks.
The added bit of bling comes from a Basic Jewels pack - love these for adding that little added extra touch to my cards!

Thanks for looking!

Fresh start for 2012!

As mentioned in my last blog some big changes have been happening in our household. One of the bonuses of these changes was I was forced to redo my stamping space and storage areas. So here is the proof that I commenced 2112 with a clean and tidy stamping space!!!!

All my spare supplies have had to move from the study into the dining room, our bedroom and hallway so that has been a bit of a juggling act trying to work out where to store my most required stamping goodies and business needs, time will tell if I have it right!

My stamping space is now well cluttered with Sale-a-bration creations, which if you would like to create some of them yourself, how about coming along to my Mystery Hostess Sale-a-bration workshop on January 26th at 7.30pm here at my place in Mt. Waverley. I'd love to have you come along and join in the fun and you never know you might get to be the Mystery Hostess and win all the Hostess benefits - yay free Stampin'Up! goodies!!!! Hope to see you here!

Happy New Year!

Hi Everyone!

Happy 2012! Life has been very busy in our household what with preparing for Christmas, moving eldest son and girlfriend back into our home (fitting another house full of furniture in has called for some creativeness) and in the process I lost my stamping/business room,all while preparing for a 21st Birthday party here for our daughter last weekend. So things have been hectic and stamping has had to take a back seat. Today I reorganised my stamping areas and while I did so my daughter made her thankyou cards for her birthday gifts. It is lovely to see my stamping gear used and she uses my retired goodies so all good! So here are her terrific creations - she made an original for each person!

She took inspiration from the current Idea Book & Catalogue for some of her cards. Check out the closeups! I hope to get back into some stamping this week as need to prepare for Sale-a-bration!
