If this card looks a little familiar, thats probably because I made a very similar card last year that I really loved. That one was in Red and White washi, with a Dazzling Diamonds glimmer reindeer... click HERE
to see it. This year I've redone it with the Mixed Metallics trend.... so my washi tape is all kinds of metallic bling, and I've paired it with a copper reindeer this time. I have to say Im pretty happy with the result.... Mr Reindeer looks very shiny and regal in copper don't you think??
Let's just say that the best cards are often the simplest :-)
I've included a product list below for you should you wish to purchase any of these items for yourself. I also used the Timeless Textures stamp set for the little dotty grunge background stamp. The sentiment however came from the "Merry Patterns" stamp set... which is a current "gift with purchase" when you are putting an order through of $450 or more (or a workshop hostess would also receive that set for free for group orders over $450 aud.
Im still having technical difficulties with uploading videos to my computer, so I'll be doing something live over on my Facebook business page
in the next day or so. If you haven't already... head over there and hit the "like" button so that you see when I am live!
Enjoy! Product List
Today I was preparing for a larger class that I will be running in the Hunter Valley later in the week and I chose this little silver and grey card as one of my designs. I've done a few cards with this "Feeling of Christmas" stamp set, but my favourite thing to do with it so far is to get out my white gel pen and colour it in! Not only does the white pen highlight the design, but it looks so soft against this Smoky Slate grey. Add a touch of silver and you have a simple but beautiful card! I've included a product list of what you need to make this card at the bottom of this post. The white gel pen is not from Stampin'Up however.. you can buy it at your local craft store. It is a Uniball Broad Tip pen.
I did a video recently showing how to do white gel pen colouring and you can watch it HERE
. And below are a couple of other cards that I did a few weeks back, with the same Feeling of Christmas set but in different colours. As you can see, they all look great... its up to you to decide how you want to do it. Enjoy!
Today we are making quilted pizza boxes! I actually created this video earlier this week as a Facebook Live video... I do these on my Facebook Business page from time to time (if you are not a follower of my page click HERE
to visit and then make sure you hit the "like" button), and they seem to be very popular. But this week I became even more reliant on the Facebook videos because I've been unable to upload videos from my phone to my computer.... so I used the Facebook live format instead.
Technology is a wonderful thing..... when it works..... sigh.
But I simply HAD to show you how to make these cute little boxes. I love them! Today's version shows off the gorgeous Quilted Christmas suite and you will love it too!
So check out the video... its a little longer than I would normally do, but I'm sure you will enjoy the project. And don't forget to make yourself a cuppa to share with me whilst you are watching!
It's the second week of the month and that means we are doing Technique classes this week. The technique this month is the "Eclipse Card technique". If you've been checking out blogs and Pinterest boards of late you may have notice these cards.... they really are quite stunning and are yet quite simple to create.
So this week we will be making 3 lovely projects and you are seeing one of them here on this page. I've used the Night in Bethlehem stamp set as my focus set, and I love how it turned out. I actually borrowed this idea from a card I saw online by the very clever Randi Collins who is a demonstrator in the US. My card is quite similar to hers although I've put my own spin on it of course :-)
Class times are as follows:
Tuesday evening @ 7.30pm
Wednesday daytime @ 11.15am
All materials, tuition and refreshments provided for a cost of $25
If you would like to join us click HERE
to reserve your spot. At time of writing there are still a couple of spots available in each class.
I hope to see you there!
If this card looks familiar... it was inspired by the previous card on my blog (click HERE
to see it). Same colours, same simple embossing. However this card has been given the "Eclipse" treatment.... and I really like the result! This card would be great for a wedding or anniversary... and it really does have that "wow" factor!
The Eclipse Technique is all the rage right now... I am seeing these cards everywhere! And there is no limit to the different ways you can do them. But they are LOTS of fun to make... so much so that I decided to make the Eclipse technique our class technique this month. I have two classes (details and times below) and you can choose between the evening and the daytime time slot.
If you would like to join us for one of my classes please contact me by clicking HERE
and book your spot. Classes are held at my home in Narara, and the address will be supplied after booking.
