Here is another card from our launch event last weekend. This colour really appealed to so many of our guests, it is the gorgeous new Sweet Sugarplum. This card is pretty much a full case of one by Tracy May, you’ll find more of her stunning work here on her blog, I recommend you check it out.
I made my version of her card by cutting a mask of the Swirly framelit (I recommend you cut yours from acetate so that you can just keep reusing it.) I then made a mix of isocol and reinker in one of our spritzers and sprayed it over the mask. I don’t recommend water with reinker if you are using Whisper White cardstock as the paper will absorb too much of the water and start to swell and feather. If extra splotches were required I used the splotch from “Gorgeous Grunge”. I used our new Blossom punch to add the flowers, I punched a hole in the centre of them before I punched the flower, I found it was easier that way. The sentiment is from “Balloon Celebration” and has been stamped in versa mark and heat set with White Embossing Powder.
I think “Confetti Celebrations” will become my ‘go to’ stamp for many of my birthday cards this year. It is so versatile and I’ve seen so many awesome cards made with it. I couldn’t resist using it for one of our recent Catalogue Launch cards.
Here I have used Dapper Denim (love this new colour), Crumb Cake and Very Vanilla. The balloons have been stamped in Marina Mist and Crushed Curry. The embossing on the banner is the new folder “Festive”.
On Saturday I celebrated our new Stampin’ Up! catalogue with a fun launch event, I’ll share a card each day starting with this one.
This cute card is so simple. I have used the stamps from “Love and Affection” which I was lucky to receive at the Stampin’ Up! On Stage Local event. My card was inspired by one by Melissa Davies, you can check her card out here. I changed the colours to Melon Mambo and Old Olive on my version. There is a little bit of fussy cutting, I don’t mind doing the cutting, especially with the Stampin’ Up! Paper Snips (if you don’t already have a pair you NEED them, they are a beautiful tool to use.) The sentiment is from “Thoughtful Banners”.
Hope you like it!
Phew, another launch day done and dusted! They are always such a lovely day, a great chance to catch up with friends and fellow Stampin’ Up! enthusiasts.

I’d love to see more people on my team, my business is very genuine and structured to the needs of my team. It is built on my love of Stampin’ Up and craft in general. More importantly I love the relationships that a love of craft nurtures and the difference kindness makes to another person’s life.
I love vellum and was so pleased when one of my customers asked for a technique class to help her to help her to use her vellum stash.
These classes will be Tuesday 14 June at 10am or Saturday 18 June at 7pm. $30 in my home on Brisbane’s northside, address on request.
I will post more information about how I made these cards after the classes. I hope you can join me!
Believe it or not I’ve been super busy (I will need to share more details here on the blog), in the meantime here’s my June schedule….
