Single Fold - Simple Stamping Class

This week's Simple Stamping Class was stepped up a little with added die cut pieces.
Card 1 uses the Touches of Texture stamp set and then we added the die cut frame, punched leaves and greeting to add dimension and interest.
Card 2 uses the Jar of Love stamp set and then we added die cut flowers using the co-ordinating Everyday Jar framelits.  The die cut flowers are raised on mini dimensionals, which again adds interest to the card.

Chalkboard Brush and Poppin Brusho Techniques

I had an idea to see if the Brusho Crystals would work as a Blackboard technique and/or Poppin Pastels, but use Brusho instead.....  and YES they work a treat!
Here are the cards I made using my new found idea...

Side Waterfall Layout

I finally did a video to show how I made my Side Waterfall card.  Here I used the Animal Outing stamp set, but of course you could use any stamp set and decorate it for any occasion.

Weekend Play Date

Over the weekend, I got together with some of my team to watch OnStage Online.  For those of us who couldn't make it to the 2 1/2 day event in New Zealand, Stampin' Up! broadcast some of the content for demonstators to watch at a later date.   It was great seeing some of the new products in the 2019-20 Catalogue which will be available to customers at the begining of June.  We were then inspired to get creative.  Here is what I made.....  2 Floating Frame cards and a case of a layout from one of the Onstage Swaps that another demonstrator showed me.

Welcome back !

It's been a long while since I posted on here, but I've got my mojo back and want to get back into inspiring others.....

Last week was busy with the first week of school holidays.  My regular class on Monday was a Keep It Simple Stamping or #simplestamping class.  The girls made 2 cards that don't require lots of product or tools.
This one features the Half Full stamp set.  If you like this set, then get in quick as it is retiring from the 2018-19 Annual Catalogue and is only available while stocks last.

Here we have used the Beautiful You stamp set which is continuing into the 2019-20 Annual Catalogue.

At Wednesday's class, I designed a Pop Up Accordion fold card which I engineered from a advertising brochure I saw online.  This class was for the "avid crafter" as it involves precision cutting, scoring and folding. 
Finally on Thursday I ran a class designed for kids who want to get a little creative. The girls who attended made a cute puppy dog card and as Mother's Day is just around the corner they made a Mother's Day card and Gift Box.
