Eastern Palace - I Love You More Each Day

In my team meeting recently I showed the ladies the new Eastern Medallion Thinlits Dies.  If you love crafty play, these are so much fun.  Our make and take for the meeting is pictured below.


I kept telling the ladies that the dies were so much fun by themselves, even without playing with the stamps!

Well since then, I have had a play with the stamps...

There are 21 stamps which can be combined with one another to make different patterns.  Have I said that they are fun??


 
I have combined two new In Colors - Lemon Lime Twist and Berry Burst for a fun contrast!  (See - that word 'fun again!)
 
 
 
 

During May, there are two bundle options available -  you can't buy things separately until the new catalogue.

There's the Eastern Palace Starter Bundle for $104.75 with FREE Very Vanilla Notecards and Envelopes (a new product).  And there are STICKERS!!  Please note that this bindle does not include the dies.




And the Eastern Palace Premier Bundle for $178.25 with FREE pack of thick Very Vanilla cardstock and Very Vanilla C6 envelopes (two more new products).  And there are TASSELS and STICKERS!!




And you may have spotted three new In Colours in these bundles - Lemon Lime Twist, Tranquil Tide and Fresh Fig.

Thanks for stopping by!

I Am In Trouble

I recently ran a class that was daytime only and masculine cards.  Everyone wants masculine cards, I have discovered and my night time ladies were sad to miss out.  So I am scheduling a class in June for more masculine cards.

In the meantime, here is what we made.



 
 

I run classes five times a month on the Gold Coast!  Check my class schedule in the classes tab at the top of the blog - I update it regularly.

Come and get inky!!

Congratulations Peta!

One of my team members has reached the title of Bronze Elite!!

This is a sales milestone and as Peta works full time in a non Stampin' Up! , a pretty special one to achieve!

For Bronze acheivers, I like to give them something as close to bronze as possible, so this card is made using our Copper Foil and Copper Embossing Powder.  The 'congrats' is made using Black Glimmer Paper.

 
 
The enamel dots are silver but I have coloured them with a brown Sharpie to give them a copper look.  That doily is made using the Eastern Medallions Thinlits.  These are SO much fun to play with.  They will be in the new catalogue but you can purchase them NOW as part of a bundle.  Details are below.

I am so excited about the new In Colours coming in the new catalogue on June 1st.  The more I see them the more I want them.  And as usual they come with a range of DSPs and accessories to co-ordinate.

These five cards are my Stamp Club bonus for this month.  The ladies in the Stamp Club receive all the bits and pieces to make up these cards - it's all cut, stamped and ready!


And the new colours are...(I know them by heart now!)

Stampin' Up!s Jar of Love

Last week we had our Jar of Love class.  This is one of my favourite sets and I wanted to show the ladies all the different ways to use it.


There are many fab videos on YouTube with Jar of Love ideas.  This card is from a tutorial by Dena Rekow.  It's a great mixture of stamping and cut outs.


This one uses the swirl cut out from the Swirly Scribbles Thinlits. The Jar of Love flowers are stamped and cut out and arranged on top.  The FOR YOU is also from the Jar of Love set.  It has a gazillion stamps (well...37!)

 
 
There are a few versions of this card online but my inspiration was from The Crafty Owl.  We watercoloured on Shimmer White then stamped over.  The stars are white gel pen.  


I wanted to make a couple of cards showing the ladies how effective the negative of the die can be.  Using the Mini Treat Bags we cut a hole in the front with the medium sized jar and then put an acetate square in behind it to make a window.  There's a fish in the jar...

 
But if you slide the card out, there's a lot of fish.

 
 
And even though this is not using the Jar of Love stamps or dies, I HAD to have everyone make this cutie.  This is a beautiful card I saw on Instagram.  Isn't it cute??


To finish off the class, I had a lucky door prize using the Jar of Love framelits.


Jar of Love is carrying over into the next catalogue but NOT as a bundle with the discounted price.  If you love it and would love to buy it, let me know!  OR head straight to my online store. 


Thanks for stopping by!

Sneek Peek er Punch....Stampin' Up!s Daisy Punch

For you lovers of punches, Stampin' Up! is bringing in some beautiful new punches.  Punches are great - they are easy to use and are quick for adding another dimension to your cards.
 
I saw a version of this card online, made by Tandra Boyer, and had to CASE.  I can only take credit for the colour choice!!
 
This card combines the Beautiful You stamp set with a punch called Daisy (and yes, there is a stamp set to match!)

 
I fell in love with the petal skirt and its layers.  So clever.  And the Rhinestone waist!  I covered the petals with Wink of Stella, which also helped to smoosh the ink around a bit.  I have since seen another version with vellum petals as another layer!
