New Summer Mini Catalogue

The spring catalogue is coming to an end but fear not the new summer mini is about to start. Orders finish the end of November for the spring but here is a sneak preview of what you can look forward to in the summer catalogue.

Summer Mini Catalogue

I had fun making these two cards with the new sweet treat cups. I tried jelly beans first but they are a little big. Next time I will try jelly bellys which I almost bought but decided not to but I think they will fit better.

Jelly Beans

So then my husband went out and bought mini m&ms for me and they work much better but not sure how they will go in the post.

Choo Choo

I love this year’s In Color colours and I have been enjoying mixing and matching them with each other and with other Stampin’ Up Colours.

I also love the spring mini and combining the colours and the new stamp sets has been lots of fun.

This is a card I have been working on. I have wanted a train stamp set for … well since I had a baby son and his first birthday was spent at the trains. Finally it is here!!!!

Choo Choo Colour Train

Card: Baja Breeze, Whisper White
Ink: Riding Hood Red, Tangerine Tango, Pacific Point; Basic Black
Stamp Set: Choo Choo; Right On Track Stampin’ Standard Wheel
Accessories: Stampin’ Around Standard Handle; Paper Snips; Stampin’ Dimensionals
I rolled the Right on Track diagonally along the card (there is a Stampin’ Around Wheel Guide if one needs to or wants it straight but I didn’t mind if this wasn’t straight along the page)
I then stamped the carriages and engine in different colours, cut them out and used stampin’ dimensionals to place them along the track. I stamped one puff of smoke on the card and then layered the next two with stampin’ dimensinals.

Lots of fun..

Ooops I realised I never published this page… Here is something added to one of the carriages.

More cards

I might calm down on my postings but just putting a few more of my card designs up.

The first one is the original design which I got from the Stampin’ Up Website.

It is on Pink Passion.
I trimmed 1/2 an inch off the front and then tore some more off and bent up the torn edge. I used Fun and Fast Notes. I stamped the bird of a square of 7cm x 7cm and then used my slip of pink to restamp the “thanks.. I needed that”. Then I inked up the bird’s flower in pixie pink and stamped that down the left hand side. I used Brilliant Blue and Pixie Pink and Green Galore with my blender pen to colour in the bird and flower. I roughed up the edges with my 7-sided distresser tool and then wrapped the slip of card with the words off centre.

The next cards are a variation on that one using wheels as I had a request from an upcoming hostess that she needed ideas for using hers.

I’ve had a friend give birth recently and have some others who are pregnant so these cards are inspired for them.
I used summer sun for the card stock.

I prepared the card as above by trimming off 1/2 an inch and then tearing the rest. I used my jumbo wheel “Wash Day” in versa mark on both the inner part of the card and the outer (but tore off most of the outer)
Using my blender pens I used Brilliant Blue and Real Red on the Happy New Baby from Fun and Fast Notes and I used Pixie Pink and Green Galore on the other baby carriage. On one I inked up the Happy New Baby in Brilliant Blue and stamped on the edge of my strip of card and after roughing up the edges used my everywhere glue on the square and then my snail adhesive on the strip across the card.
For the other I used Spring Pictograms though I think next time the strip will have to be wider and wrapped the strip using SNAIL adhesive around the white square and then glued down.

Last but not least…

Same prep as before – on real red. This time I inked up watercolour joy stampin’ wheel with real red and rolled along bottom inside.

I also used real red and brilliant blue and green galore with my blender pens on the pictures. I chose different statements to go with the pictures from the same set.

First Workshop Part B

I had my first workshop yesterday and it went ok.

A few things went off the plan. Alexander decided to choose his own nap time so he was awake during the workshop.
Vanessa had laryngitis but she did marvelously well supporting me with a fading voice.
And as I know with teaching I definitely had room for improvement in my demo-ing.

Here are some of the cards that were made yesterday – it is interesting to see people’s different takes on it all.

Erika used her spiral punch outs to further decorate the card which I thought was pretty funky.

Then Jenny did her take – I like the two giraffes in the middle – 1 being 3D and I hadn’t thought of doing the lion’s tail 3D.

3D animals

Last was Rebecca who split her giraffe which looks cool and she went wild with the greeting which I think looks great and might have to case.

Wild About You

I think everyone enjoyed themselves.
