Hello from New Zealand – It’s your friendly Kiwi here!

Welcome to this month’s Pretty Cards & Paper International Blog Hop.

Our Design Team is made up of Stampin’ Up! Demonstrators from throughout the world – one from each of the countries/markets that Stampin’ Up! has a presence in and I’m really honoured to be part of the Design Team! Love how Stampin’ Up! has brought us together!

Each month we will be featuring a different card or designer series paper (DSP)  in our projects but this month we are shaking things up a little. Our current catalogue finishes very soon ((June 2nd) and a new one starts on June 3rd.  As we say goodbye to our current DSPs and hello to new ones, this month we can use ANY Designer Series Paper.

Covid-19 Product Giveback

Stampin’ Up! is also currently running a “Product Giveback” Promotion – The Share Sunshine Covid-19 pdf – and some of us are featuring that in our projects too!

covid product giveback

Anyone in the world can purchase for $US12 – ALL of that goes to charities – see below.

This digital stamp set is packed with both lighthearted and thoughtful sentiments and imagery relevant to the unique COVID-19 and social distancing situation we are currently in. You can use the download in your cardmaking and papercrafting projects. Simply print the imagery on cardstock and cut it out using Stampin’ Up!’s Paper Trimmer, punches, or dies. Since we are physically distanced from each other, now is a perfect time to share sunshine with our friends and family by sending cards!

As part of Stampin’ Up!’s Making a Difference program, 100% of the Share Sunshine PDF Download proceeds will go to COVID-19 efforts through these organizations:

  • The World Health Organization’s COVID-Solidarity Response Fund
  • United Way Worldwide’s COVID-19 Community Response and Recovery Fund

Help us make a difference today!

I have two projects to share with you today – each featuring a different DSP – and one featuring a sentiment from the Share Sunshine pdf.

Our Design team has created a bundle of 12 tutorials using Stampin’ Up! products and all featuring products from the Best Dressed Suite

Blog Hop Project – Parfum Card

Best Dressed

Project Details

Paper/card: Purple Posy, Blackberry Bliss, Thick Whisper White, Best Dressed DSP,  Silver Foil Sheets

Stamp sets: Dressed to Impress

Ink: Highland Heather, Blackberry Bliss, Black Stazon

Blends: Basic Black Light, Daffodil Delight Dark

Accessories: Best Dressed Tassels, Window Sheets

Tools: All dressed up Dies, Paper Snips

More Project Photos

This is the inside of the card where I’ve stamped a bottle directly onto the card, and then added the layers of DSP and Purple Posy that have been stamped and fussy cut to make the label.Best Dressed… here’s a close up of the bottle made with the window sheet.Best DressedI’ve stamped the perfume bottle image using Stazon, and then turned the window sheet over and coloured the bottle & lid on the reverse side using Blends. Doing this on opposite sides prevents the Blends ink and the Stazon Ink (both of which are solvent-based) from bleeding into each other and blurring the image.

Hello Reverse Masking- Totally Techniques April Blog Hop

Hello Reverse Masking

Hello Reverse masking

totally Techniques

Hello and Welcome to the Totally Techniques Blog Hop!  I’m Jackie Noble from Porirua in New Zealand.

This month, our featured technique is Reverse Masking – thanks for the great theme Shannean!

Hello Reverse Masking!

I love how Reverse Masking provides a focal point on a card that provides an “anchor” for all the stamping and draws the eye towards the scene.

On my card today I’ve used a hexagon shape as my mask. Into the masked area, I have added colours using a brayer to create a waterscape.

Hello Reverse Masking

I haven’t added any other stamps other than the trees as I really wanted a clean uncluttered scene to give an impression of how vast the ocean is.

Project Details

(Note: see the Product List below for images & links to more information about the items)

Stamp sets: Timeless Tropical

Paper/card:

  • Whisper White – 14.3cm x 10cm
  • Crumb Cake – 14.8cm x 21cm, scored at 10.5cm on long side.

 

Ink: Pool Party, Pretty Peacock, Early Espresso, Crumb Cake (these were the colours in the Stampin’ Up! #keepstamping Creative Challenge that has just finished)

Accessories: Gilded Gems, Multipurpose Liquid Glue, Glue Dots, Stampin’ Dimensionals

Tools: Brayer, Stitched Nested Labels Dies, Subtles Embossing Folder

Non Stampin’ Up!: Rice

Additional Project Photos

The background is created by using a piece of Whisper White that has had one of the Stitched Nested Labels Dies cut from the centre. This was placed over the smaller piece of Whisper White and a brayer was used to apply layers of ink onto the card to build the scene. An additional piece of paper was used as the horizontal mask to create the horizon.

reverse masking

The mask was removed and trees were then stamped so it was partly on and partly off the background scene. After the stamping was complete, the coloured and stamped Whisper White was run through the embossing machine in the Subtles 3D embossing folder.

Here’s a close-up where you can see the texture from the Subtles Embossing Folder. I’m so pleased this folder is not retiring!

Hello Reverse Masking

The Gilded Gems add a little shine to the card.

I added a little stamping to the inside of the card.

Diagonally Opening Gift Box

My awesome upline Kristine McNickle recently shared a diagonal lidded gift box in our monthly team meeting/training. She had taken inspiration from a design by Julie Dimatteo. – altering the dimensions.

 Additional Project Photos

The daisies were fussy cut out and have those gorgeous Gilded Gems added to their centres. Of course, the DSP is carried through to the inside of the card!

Ornate Garden

The layers of white and gold were made using the Ornate Layers Dies. For the card I used the diecuts at the actual size of the dies but for the gift box I adjusted the size – making each a little smaller to fit.

Ornate Layers Dies

Ornate Layers Dies

For the box, I wrapped the layers over one edge of the box.

Te box is held closed by the ribbon around the side, and then opens diagonally to reveal the box base inside.

The box lid is all made from one piece of DSP.

Here are the measurements for the Box (base and lid) with cutting and scorelines marked.

Botanical Prints Medley – Tutorial Bundle Design Team Blog Hop

Botanical Prints  – a Kiwi Twist

botanical Prints feijoa

All Star Tutorial Bundle Design Team

Hello from New Zealand – It’s your friendly Kiwi here!

Note: Orders currently placed with me will be packed & stored in the Stampin’ Up! Warehouse (Sydney) until New Zealand is out of our national Alert Level 4 and allowing the delivery of non-essential items. 

ORDERING AND SHIPPING UPDATE (1.15 pm, Wednesday, 1 April):

To comply with the New Zealand Government request to only ship essential goods, Stampin’ Up! have decided to hold all Stampin’ Up! shipments into New Zealand during our Alert Level 4. That means that you can still place orders, which will be prepared for shipment and stored in the distribution centre until shipping into New Zealand resumes.

I would like to very clearly state my FULL support for this decision. In addition, during Alert Level 4  I personally and business-wise will NOT be using the mail or courier services – except for essential items – so no cards or class kits or classes-to-go will be shipped at the moment.

All Star Tutorial Bundle Design Team

It’s great to be hopping with the All Star Tutorial Bundle Design Team – we are ready to help you create beautiful handmade projects featuring Stampin’ Up! products. It’s time for a new Tutorial Bundle and Blog Hop for you.

All Star Tutorial Bundle

Our Design team has created a bundle of 12 tutorials using Stampin’ Up! products and all featuring the Botanical Prints Medley.

This month we have a special treat – the tutorials in our Bundle are videos! Exciting!

Here’s a Sneak Peek of the projects you will receive in the bundle.

April Bundle Sneak Peek

All Star Tutorial Bundle

The Tutorial Bundles are based on currently available supplies from Stampin’ Up! and will have both metric and imperial (inches) measurements. So no matter where you live in the world, you can purchase these tutorials and use them to create great projects!
The Tutorial Bundle is $N22.50 – or place an order over $NZ50 this month with me to receive this month’s tutorial for free. See the details at the end of the post to find out how you can get this exclusive bundle of tutorials.

All Star Tutorial Bundle Design Team Blog Hop

Remember, the projects in the Blog Hop are not the same projects as in our tutorial – the projects in the Tutorial Bundle are exclusive and not shown anywhere else.

While the project being shared today and my project in the Tutorial Bundle are both made using the Botanical Prints Product Medley – they are different projects.

Blog Hop Project – Feijoa Card

Botanical Prints - Feijoa

 

The botanical images in this medley are really versatile – they could be a huge variety of different fruits, buds, berries or flowers! I’ve stamped and coloured the fruity image in Garden green to become a New Zealand favourite – the feijoa. As I say in the video that is in the bundle – you either love them or hate them – I LOVE them!

They grow on an evergreen tree that is part of the same family as our famous pohutukawa tree – their flowers ere even very similar – maybe that’s why we like them and their original and distinctive flavour!

Here’s an another view of the card.

Botanical Prints - Feijoa

Project Details

Paper/card: Garden Green, Shimmery White, Botanical Prints DSP

Stamp sets: Botanical Prints

Ink: Garden Green

Accessories: Coloured Metal Bee Embellishments, Old Olive/Pretty Peacock Reversible Ribbon

Adhesives: Multipurpose Glue, Dimensionals, Glue Dots

More Project Photos

The Reversible Ribbon is a great addition to the colours of the feijoa – and how cute is that bee!

Botanical Prints - Feijoa

This is the inside of the card where I’ve stamped a couple more of the images and used the Blender Pens to colour.

Botanical Prints - Feijoa

… and just so you can see the inside of those feijoas a little more!

Botanical Prints - Feifoa

My favourite way to eat them is simply cut in half like this and to scoop the flesh out with a spoon … mmmmmmmm

They also make very tasty muffins!

***Ordering and Shipping Update *** Create with Pip & Jax – By the Dock Online Class – April

Create with Pip & Jax

 

by the Dock

Updated:

A new month, a new Class from Create With Pip and Jax, and a new “normal” for us here in New Zealand and around the globe!

Shortly after posting about April’s Create with Pip & Ja Class, I received notification from Stampin’ Up! that they will be stopping shipping to New Zealand from 1.59am (NZT) on Friday for at least the following 3 weeks. However – ordering will continue to be available – the orders will be processed, packed and held at the warehouse until shipping recommences.

The following is from the email I have received:

“You’ve likely heard that Prime Minister Ardern of New Zealand has asked businesses to ship only essential goods into the country. In an effort to comply with this request from the government and to do our part to help stop the spread of COVID-19, we have decided to hold all Stampin’ Up! shipments into New Zealand for at least the next three weeks. Although orders will not be shipped into New Zealand during these next few weeks, you and your customers may continue placing orders, which we will still prepare for shipment.       …

All orders received by 11:59 pm (AET) on Thursday 2 April will ship as normal. Any orders received after that time will be processed, packed and stored in the distribution centre until shipping to New Zealand resumes.

We anticipate this hold on shipments to last at least three weeks. This timeframe aligns with the government’s current Alert Level 4 status, which is roughly one week into a four-week lockdown. ”

I am personally fully supportive of this decision by Stampin’ Up! I fully understand that it will impact the company as well as us Independent Demonstrators and the many people that purchase our fabulous products. I do believe that allowing us all to keep ordering – but holding those orders back from shipping at the moment is the right thing to do.

With this announcement, I am happy to resume placing orders after the 11.59 (AET) Thursday 2 April timeframe noted. This is 1.59am on Friday 3 April.    By placing orders from that time I know they will not be entering the New Zealand Postal/Courier Services

This does, of course, mean that any orders will not be shipped – so you need to be aware that it will be at least 3 weeks before they arrive in New Zealand. In the meantime, I will send the pdf electronically as you can use the projects as inspiration using products you may currently have.

I will continue to not be placing items into the mail/courier services until the restrictions on the use of these essential services have been revised.

So …

I’m delighted to share the details of April’s Create with Pip & Jax Online Class -a global collaboration between myself and Pip Todman (Queen Pip Card).

We are two good friends who met online, and then in person, and we just clicked.

Create with Pip & Jax – Positive Thoughts Online Class – March

Create with Pip & Jax

 

by the Dock

A new month, a new Class from Create With Pip and Jax, and a new “normal” for us here in New Zealand and around the globe!

For me here in New Zealand, at the moment I will only be offering this class for sale as a pdf tutorial – delivered by email.

Unfortunately, I will not be offering the option of purchasing the full online class which includes ordered product, the pdf and prepared kits to make the class projects – at this time.

I have made the personal, and difficult decision to not to place any orders for Stampin’ Up! product while the current restrictions of  Alert Level 4 are in place.

Some background

New Zealand is currently in at Alert Level 4 due to the Covid-19 Global Pandemic. That means our whole country is in lockdown for at least 4 weeks except for essential services. Like many places, we have gone through limitations and then bans on social gatherings which, of course, meant  I have previously canceled all in-person events.  At Alert Level 4 our postal and courier services are classified as Essential Services and the current guidelines are that those services are only to be used for essential services.

https://covid19.govt.nz/government-actions/covid-19-alert-level/essential-businesses/?fbclid=IwAR0JHn7YJLO15dLdOJZPHgjmlpqPhwDNlkhjqcPEf7WwOMMCMhBk6FysmU4

If the guidelines change regarding non-food essential services, then I will relook at my position – but I do truly believe the fewer items coming into, being sorted and being moved around our country, and the fewer trips being taken by deliverers will not only help break the chain of transmission but also help ensure the transport of essential items continues.

So while I know my decision affects not only me and my business but also my wonderful customers – crafty friends who place orders with me and purchase other items like classes to go and kits, I have decided to not place any order for Stampin’ UP! product (for myself or others) non mail/courier any items under Alert Level 4 and the current associated guidelines.

But I am still delighted to share the details of April’s Create with Pip & Jax class -a global collaboration between myself and Pip Todman (Queen Pip Card).

Anniversary Shaker Card – Totally Techniques March Blog Hop

 

Wedding Shaker Card

Anniversary Shaker card

totally Techniques

Hello and Welcome to the Totally Techniques Blog Hop!  I’m Jackie Noble from Porirua in New Zealand.

This month, our featured technique is Shaker Cards – thanks for the great theme Nadine!

Anniversary Shaker Card

Tomorrow is Roy’s and my 34th Wedding Anniversary. We were supposed to be celebrating that in Tonga this weekend – but of course that has been put on hold for the moment.

I’m hoping Roy won’t see this post until tomorrow and his card will still be a surprise, but I really wanted to make a shaker card for him so I’m taking the risk.

Wedding Shaker Card

Today (it’s Saturday 28th here in New Zealand) we are at Day 3 of Alert Level 4 – a total Nationwide lockdown.

As well as the affect this is having on my small business, we’ve had a few personal things canceled – or postponed.  Last night we were booked to go to the Book of Morman Musical in Auckland before we flew out to Tonga this morning. The show was canceled as soon as restrictions were placed on mass gatherings. And sadly my Christmas present – a  Meerkat Close Encounter Experience at the Wellington Zoo – was also postponed earlier in the week. But I should be able to rebook that at some stage.

But … in the scheme of things – these things pale to insignificance of what we are facing globally – let’s all do our bit to break the chain of transmission. 

It will be a memorable Anniversary  – the first one we’ve had during a National Emergency!

Background

The Snow Globe Scenic dies and Snow Domes were Roy’s favourite items in the 2019 Holiday Catalogue and I was delighted when they were on the Carryover List as I hadn’t managed to make him a card with them when the Holiday Catalogue ended. Given a reprieve, an Anniversary card is the perfect reason to make something special for him!

And as I’ve mentioned before – Roy has said he thinks the Meerkats are the cutest set that Stampin’ Up! has ever made! So, of course, I decided to use them on my card as well!

These photos provide some visual background to my card. This is us outside the church we were married at ( St Peter’s Catholic Church in Wairoa) on our wedding day with our wedding party, and then again on our anniversary a couple of years ago when we were home for a visit.

              St Peters CHurch Wairoa

The colour palette came from our wedding day – White for the dress, flowers and church, Garden Green for the Church doors and Real Red for the bridesmaids’ dresses, my flowers and the ties the groom and groomsmen wore.

And the shaker card has rice in it of course!

Project Details

(Note: see the Product List below for images & links to more information about the items)

Stamp sets: The Gang’s All Meer, Well Said

Paper/card:   Garden Green, Whisper White, Peaceful Poppies DSP

Ink: Versamark, Black Momento, Blends – Soft Suede, Crumb Cake, Real Red

Accessories: Snow Globe Shaker Dome, Whisper White Polka Dot Tulle, Foam Adhesive Strips, Multipurpose Liquid Glue, Glue Dots, White Embossing Powder

Tools: Well Written Dies, Snow Globe Scenes Dies

Non Stampin’ Up!: Rice

Additional Project Photos

Here’s a close-up so you can get a better look at that handsome Groom and gorgeous Bride – what a cute couple!!!

Anniversary Shaker Card

Doesn’t the tule ribbon make a cute wee veil?! The Groom’s tie was hand-drawn and coloured with the Dark Real Red Blend. The bouquet flowers are from the top of the Cacti and also coloured with the Real Red Stampin’ Blend. The Meerkats themselves are coloured with Soft Suede and Crumb Cake Blends.

As I usually do,  there are some elements from the front of my card carried through to the inside. This time the matting is repeated and there are more die cut words from the Well Written Dies.

Wedding Shaker Card

In the photo below you can see the shaker dome a bit more clearly with the DSP behind it.

Anniversary Shaker Card

Snow Globe Shaker Domes

I love how easy these domes are to work with.

Die-cut the dome shape (in Whisper White on my card), peel the adhesive off the front side of the dome, poke through the die-cut opening and adhere it, add your shaking things (rice for me) to the dome, peel off the adhesive from the other side of the dome and stick to the backing cardstock  (mine was the Garden Green and DSP layer) to seal.

Now it’s time to see what projects the other blog hop participants have shared today.

Monochrome Blossoms – Stampin’ Creative March Blog Hop

Monochrome Blossoms

Monochrome Blossoms

Welcome to March’s Stampin’ Creative Global Blog Hop. 

Our Design Team is made up of Stampin’ Up! Demonstrators from throughout the world and we love blogging together each month to share new Creative projects with you all. You’re currently with Jackie Noble – aka CreativeJax – in Porirua, New Zealand.

This month our theme is one of my favourite styles – monochrome and my project is in one of my favourite colours – Night of Navy.

Monochrome Blossoms Card

Monochrome Blossoms

Project Details

Stamp sets: Forever Blossoms

Paper/card:

  • Night of Navy
    • Card Base 29.7cm x 10.5cm scored at 14.8cm on the long side
    • Front – 11.2cm x 7.5cm
    • scrap for sentiment
  • Very Vanilla
    • 14.3cm x 10.3cm – inside & outside
    • Front – 12cm x 8.5cm

 

Ink: Night of Navy, Night of Navy Blends, Versamark

Accessories: Basic Rhinestones, 1cm Denim Ribbon, White Embossing Powder, Wink of Stella

Tools: Parisian Flourish 3D, Blender Pen, Embossing Buddy, Heat Tool, Nature’s Thoughts Dies, Classic Label Punch

 

 Additional Project Photos

 

The background was created by swiping the Night of Navy Classic Ink Pad across the embossing folder before placing the Very Vanilla cardstock into the folder. The folder was well covered with ink and then the cardstock placed into the folder and run through the Embossing machine.

Once removed from the folder, any areas that were raised had no ink on them. A Blender Pen was used to spread the colour over these areas from the flat areas of the cardstock where there was lots of ink. it sort of reminds me of oldfashioned wallpaper!

Once dry, the coloured, embossed cardstock was stuck to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. The ribbon was wrapped around the card front and a bow tied to the left.

To achieve the monochrome blossom image, I stamped the large blossom image in Night of Navy ink onto the smaller piece of Very Vanilla. Taking a Blender Pen, I gently used the brush to “pull” the colour from the stamped image into areas where there was no colour.  A bit like colouring-in using the ink that was already there.

Once completely dry, the cardstock was run through the cutting machine with the rectangle shape from the Nature’s Thoughts Dies. Love the detail around the edges. The rectangle was matted onto the Night of Navy mat and then onto attached to the front of the card with dimensionals.

Monochrome Blossoms

I added some Wink of Stella onto the flowers, along with Basic Rhinestones which had been coloured with Night of Navy Blends.

Monochrome Blossoms

 

On the inside of the card, the bottom of the Very Vanilla had the same technique applied as the on the card front – but only to the bottom portion.

Now it’s time to see what projects the other members of the Design Team have chosen to CASE – and what they’ve created!
