Red Dalek

Okay occasionally I come up with an idea in my head and it turns out to work lol. I was playing with the Coffee cup framelits (143745) for another card and turned it around and went ooh that looks like a Dalek!

Here’s what I came up with!  The Background is the shaving creme technique and I have stamped it with the new gorgeous Marbled Background Stamp set.  I coloured 12 of the largest pearls with a sharpie marker and used a plain one for the antenna. The Stamp set is my go to alphabet stamp set -Labeler Alphabet (141936)

Here’s a picture of all you need to recreate it yourself.

I’ve started up my Te Puke Card Technique Classes again (near Tauranga, New Zealand) and here is one of the cards I’m teaching this later this month!

I’m so excited to finally being able to use this Embossing Paste.

I’ve been working with Non SU pastes for years so its wonderful to be able to teach this technique! P.S there are lots of Techniques you can use this paste with and I cant wait to show my card technique classes some of them!

Isn’t this stamp set gorgeous? (You’ve got style 143898)

It was one of the first new stamp sets on my list for our New Annual Catalogue ..which is out now.

Here is the inside.

New Catalogue Goodies!

Our new Annual Catalogue comes out on the 1st of June!One of the perks of being a Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator (well there are lots of perks) is having access to a range of products beforehand.

My Sister and I had a play date over Easter (wasn’t working a couple of days for a change) and I got to play with some new goodies.

Here’s some cards I made using the Eastern Palace Suite. This one has a clear through window and is actually embossed. (Having a little problem with my editing programme I use at the moment..sigh)

IMG_7404-001

I’m not usually a sticker fan(except for alphabet ones) but these gold stickers are just gorgeous, good quality and easy to use. I teamed it up with the must have Eastern Medallions Thinlits…seriously you got to get them! Also showing some new in Colors with these samples…Love them all but especially Fresh Fig, Lemon Lime Twist and Tranquil Tide.

IMG_7405-001IMG_7406-001

This next one was in my head as soon as I saw this DSP (Designer Series Paper) as it reminded me of a Maori Cloak.  I used Labeler Alphabet to customise.

IMG_7407-001

The Mini Tassels are ever so cute …I just want to horde them but I’m trying to be good and actually use my embellishments this year lol.

The Happy Birthday thinlit was the first thing on my order. I’ve actually embossed this card with the Softly Falling embossing folder. IMG_7409-001

This stamp set is another new one of three free stamp sets I scored at our recent SU Onstage Demonstrator event. Its called Tabs for Everything. This set might be a new favourite of mine as its very versatile.

IMG_7410-001

Finally…more stickers..this time as a background on the card. Stamp set is Eastern Beauty.

Been AWOL

But had a death in the family..been a long drawn out affair.

Anyway..I have been creating with the fab Occasions Catalogue ..Ive just recently taught at a wider team event recently and my theme was a vintage theme.

I just love vintage! I do other styles too but do love a vintage card or Scrapbooking LO.

Here is the first project Im showing using the Vertical Garden Project Kit tray and ribbon. The rest I used as accents for boxes at a local market I have coming up.

tray

I used Kraft 12 x 12 CS for this project and a lot of stamps and dies from the new Occasions Catalogue.

What I love about these events ..is that we are one big family and its a chance to inspire others so I hope Ive done that with this and my other samples (check back to see more!)

I have a team of 20+ demonstrators in New Zealand and would love to share our close team with more crafty ladies so if you are looking for a close knit team with Stampin’ Up! Then contact me for more details on signing up at cramfamily@xtra.co.nz. Saleabration is the perfect time to sign up to be a Demonstrator as you get more freebies in an already awesome and custom built kit. This extra promotion ends 31st March 2017

Creating up a Storm!

Fist pump..YES! .. After Christmas, I’ve had some time to create with some new goodies from the Occasions Catalogue and Saleabration Catalogue ..which go live on the 4th January!

Here’s what I’ve been making…

display-stamper-projects-2017

First up is actually a White gift box from our Holiday Catalogue (142000) which is returning for this catalogue..which is just as well as had only used one of them for my Christmas markets. I am doing a few markets now and often get asked for masculine/boy boxes etc ..so I came up with this ..a rubik cube!

So pleased how this turned out!  I haven’t worked out what I’m putting in this box yet ..got any ideas for me?

img_6820-001

Next up ..another 3D project and using the Cupcakes and Carousels Designer Paper stack, Pyramid Pals and the Popcorn box Thinlits.

My little Circus tent!

I absolutely adore this 6×6 Paper stack and is my sort of colours I love to covet in my stash hehehe..

I’ve filled the top with fairy/candy floss and the bottom with gobstopper lollies/candy. I get to eat the rest ..or make some more circus tents..

I’ve used the coordinating embellishment kit on this item and some of the following creations. All I need is some circus animals!

img_6837-001

A scrapbook Layout I made…I just love the Lace Doilies and have used up all 24 in the pack already and I’ve ordered 2 more packs!

I am busy making a project for my Sister for her Birthday (which has passed BTW but she understands lol) and I’m using ALL of the Urban Underground Specialty DSP ..but had some scraps leftover …

This LO is a tribute to George Michael with the title but it was so apt with what our daughter was going through at that age….girls and boys can be vicious these days and it was a learning curve for us all to deal with the negative. I’ve recycled a SU backing board for the background for this LO as just love the texture. I plan on teaching this as a class but using Kraft 12 x 12 instead.

The tassel tag pulls down to show the journalling.

img_6840-001

As you can see, I’ve sponged with whisper white craft ink over my doilies to achieve that look.

This carried onto a card I made ..

img_6825-001

Not sure if I want to have a sentiment for this card.  I started with a piece of Cupcakes and Carousels paper and altered it using different ink colours and finally Bermuda Bay ink and Whisper White Craft ink with the doilies as a stencil. This is part of a new technique class I’m setting up in Te Puke this year. Contact me if you’d like to know more?

 

Another technique card using Crumb Cake, Whisper White craft ink and the Beautiful You stamp set. I love this set!  I needed a few of these cards this week unfortunately  so these were simple..but love this sentiment too. This set is very versatile I reckon?

img_6830-001img_6828-001

My final card is another simple one ..and again using white craft ink.

Its using Lift Me Up stamp set..which I think is very versatile too!

I used water colour pencils with this one!  So happy that we have watercolour pencils back in this new catalogue..so easy to use!

img_6842-001

These projects are for my entry to be a display stamper at Onstage in Auckland (A Stampin’ Up! event) this year. I was lucky enough to be picked last April and loved the experience.

Hope you enjoyed my little play! Now off to finish my Sisters Gift.

Check out my events on my Facebook Business Page that are coming up soon.
