Design it with Designer Series Paper – and All My Love at Christening time!

All My Love at Christening time

Design it With Designer Series Paper

Welcome to this month’s Design it with Designer Series Paper 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. We have come together to share projects focusing on the beautiful Designer Series Paper (DSP) in the Stampin’ Up! Catalogues.

Each month we will be featuring a different paper and in January we are featuring a brand new DSP – All My Love. This paper is the first DSP you will see in the recently released Occasions Catalogue. 

All My Love DSP

The All My Love product suite may seem like a suite designed just for Valentine’s Day – it is soooooooo much more. Think weddings, friends, birthdays – there are lots of possibilities. 

I’ve made a gorgeous Christening card for a special wee girl using the All My Love DSP paired with the Cross and Hope framelit Dies and the Hold onto Hope stamp set.

 

My card base is a product I was so pleased to see on the Carry Over List from the Holiday Catalogue – the Silver-Edged Notecards & Envelopes.  If you’re not sure what is still available from the Holiday Catalogue you can check out all the Carry Over items HERE

The pattern I’ve chosen from the All My Love DSP pack has a Flirty Flamingo with cute little hearts in Whisper White and Lovely Lipstick. This pattern co-ordinates perfectly with both ribbons from the All My Love Combo Pack as these are Flirty Flamingo and Lovely Lipstick with white stitched edge.. So I wrapped a piece of each around the DSP before adhering the DSP to the Silver Edged notecard and then tied a bow.

Another of the co-ordinating products from the All is Love Suite was used to cut the Whisper White heart-shapes which have the sentiment stamped in Lovely Lipstick onto them. The Be Mine Stitched Framelits Dies include 16 dies – including nesting die sets and two different shaped hearts – some of which even cut out the hearts on the DSP!

Be Mine Stitched Dies

You can see another of the Be Mine Framelits on the envelope in the photo below – the group of hearts. While I haven’t used them in this project, this dies also cuts out 21 individual little hearts.

This photo of the card and envelope also shows both of the dies I have used from the Cross of Hope Framelits Dies. These were cut from Silver Foil sheet to tie in with the silver edge of the card base. The sentiments are from the Hold onto Hope stamp set which co-ordinates with the Cross of Hope Framelits.

Our gift to the wee whose Christening we were so blessed to be part, came in a beautiful Navy box. I didn’t want to wrap this box – but I did want for it to match my card so added Flirty Flamingo diecuts, tied Silver Metallic Edged White Ribbon around the box and added a bow made with the All My Love Ribbon Combo.

As always, I’ve carried a design element through to the inside of my card – this time the multi-heart die in Flirty Flamingo.

Love how so many of the elements tie in with each other in the card, envelope and gift box.

The Flirty Flamingo and Lovely Lipstick work so well with the silver and the navy.

Tutorial Bundle Design Team January Hop – Just Because


Tutorial Bundkle Design Team Blog Hop

Hello from New Zealand and welcome to this month’s Blog Hop with the Tutorial Bundle Design Team where I share a trio of cards featuring a new stamp set (Just Because), new framelits (Rectangle Stitched Framelits), new Stampin’ Blends (Mossy Meadow & Balmy Blue) and a carry over favourite (Buffalo Check).

Just Because Trio

 
The team is ready to help you create beautiful handmade projects featuring Stampin’ Up! products. We have a Tutorial Bundle and a Blog Hop for you.

The Tutorial Bundle  

 
Our Design team has created a bundle of 12 tutorials using Stampin’ Up! products. 
This month the bundle contains tutorials for traditional style cards, bags, boxes, and lots of paper crafting techniques! It’s full of fabulous projects, many featuring new products from the Occasions Catalogue and Sale-A-Bration brochure which both went live yesterday!!! The tutorial bundle has so many ideas to inspire you.
 
Here’s a Sneak Peak of what you will receive in the bundle.
Tutorial Bundle January 2019 Sneak peek
 
 
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!
 
You can purchase the Tutorial Bundle for $NZ20, 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.

The Tutorial Bundle Design Team Blog Hop

 
To celebrate the release of the January Bundle, the Design Team is holding our monthly Blog Hop.
Remember, these Blog Hop projects are not the same projects as in our tutorial, as the projects in the Tutorial Bundle are exclusive and not shown anywhere else.
I have a trio of cards featuring the Just Because Hostess Stamp Set and the Stitched Rectangle Framelits to share today. My Tutorial Bundle project also uses the Just Because stamp set and the Rectangle Stitched Framelits Dies. But it is a different card than those here in the Hop!
We often overlook the Hostess Stamp Set. But I fell in love with the imagery of the Just Because Hostess Stamp set. This set is in the Occasions Catalogue that went live yesterday.
(Note: If you live in New Zealand and would like a copy of the new catalogue then please email me jackie@creativejax.co.nz )
 Here is the stamp set
Just Because
The only way to purchase Hostess stamp sets is with Stampin’ Rewards. Anyone can earn Stampin’ Rewards – you can host a party where the orders total over $300 – or you can place your own order of $300 – gather orders from your friends which total over $300. 
 
You can see in the image above that the three botanical images in the Just Because set have words that are very close. In fact each of these images and words are one stamp as you can see below. 
But if you look closely at the stamps you may notice something…

 … I’ve cut the stamp so I can use the images without the words. I decided I would often want just the images. Or I may wish to swap the sentiments. So rather than masking or colouring the stamps each time, I would simply cut them apart!
But if i want to use them together, they easily line up again.
 
Back to my cards!
Using Early Espresso Classic Ink, I stamped each of the botanical images from Just Because onto a square of Very Vanilla cardstock.I then coloured the images with Stampin’ Blends.
For the image above I used the Crumb Cake Light Stampin’ Blend along with the newly released Mossy Meadow Light Stampin’ Blend. I also used another new Stampin’ Blend – Balmy Blue Dark while creating my card trio.
S

After colouring, I used two of the Stitched Rectangle Framelits to cut out three panels on each image.

Just Because

Stitched Rectangle Framelits

Stitched Rectangle Framelits

I cut out three panels from each of my three botanical images. 

Next I inked up a returning favourite from the Holiday Catalogue – the Buffalo Check Stamp – with Crumb Cake and Mossy Meadow Classic Ink using sponge daubers to apply the ink to the stamp.

For my first Just Because card, I simply popped the panels onto the card front using dimensionals.

Just Because

For my second Just because card I wrapped some Old Olive Linen Thread around the card front before attaching the panels with dimensionals.

Just Because

And the last card in my Just Because trio also has some of the Old Olive Linen Thread – this time as texture behind the panels.

Just Because

I’ve chosen not to include ay sentiments on the cards – Just Because!

Here they are together again.

 

I hope you’ve enjoyed my Blog Hop trio this month – I sure had fun making them!

Design it With Designer Series Paper – Delightful Sunny Days

Delightful Sunny Days

Delightful Sunny Days in Daffodil Delight.

Design it With Designer Series Paper

Welcome to this month’s Design it with Designer Series Paper 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. We have come together to share projects focusing on the beautiful Designer Series Paper in the Stampin’ Up! Catalogues.

Each month we will be featuring a different paper and we’ve got lots of choice in December for our Designer Series Paper (DSP) – anything from any of the DSP  6″x6″ colour collection packs – Brights, Neutrals, InColor, Regals or Subtles.

brights 6x6 colour collection

You may not realise it- but you can “Shop by Colour” in the Online Shop. This is where you can easily explore all the products that are available as individual colours – as well as bundles containing all the colours in one of the collections e.g. DSP, InkPads, Ink Refills, Stampin’ Write Markers.

For this month’s Design it With DSP project, I’ve chosen Daffodil Delight from the Brights 6″x6″ DSP pack. The Pack contains the following:

  • 10 colours – Poppy Parade, Melon Mambo, Flirty Flamingo, Mango Melody, Daffodil Delight, Granny Apple Green, Coastal Cabana, Bermuda Bay, Pacific Point, Gorgeous Grape
  • 40 sheets: 2 each of 2 double-sided designs 
  • 6″ x 6″ (15.2 x 15.2 cm)

I’ve made a bright summery card in Daffodil Delight using the Beach Happy stamp set.

Sunny Days in Daffodil Delight

On top of a card base of Whisper White, I’ve added one of the Daffodil Delight DSP patterns as a background. 

The images and sentiment in my card are a sneak peek of a fun, summery stamp set in the about-to-be-released Occasions Catalogue called “Beach Happy”

The umbrella and deck chair image from “Beach Happy” reminded me so much of my childhood summers.

As a child, I was so Blessed to spend each summer at Mahia Beach with my extended family – grandparents, cousins, aunts, uncles as well as Mum & Dad and my brothers & sisters. They were Happy times. We even had umbrellas and deck chairs in the style of those in the stamp set and was keen to recreate some of my childhood Happy Beach memories using the DSP piecing technique. 

Paper Piecing – Here’s how:

  • Using the Tuxedo Black Momento Inkpad, I stamped the image onto the Whisper White panel, and then again onto the spotty Daffodil Delight DSP paper which had Multipurpose Adhesive Sheet stuck to the back..
  • I fussy cut the umbrella top and deck chair seat out from the DSP, removed the Adhesive Sheet backing and stuck them to the image on the Whisper White panel.
  • Taking the Momento InkPad, I stamped the image a third time – onto Crumb Cake cardstock with Adhesive Sheet attached.
  • The Crumb Cake frame of the chair was also fussy cut, the backing removed and stuck onto the image on the Whisper White Panel. The Multipurpose Adhesive Sheet makes adhering these narrow pieces very easy. No messy glue involved!
  • To make the bag, I stamped the image onto some more of Adhesive Sheet backed Daffodil Delight DSP paper and fussy cut the image out. 
  • Taking the Momento InkPad again, I stamped another bag image onto a small scrap of Whisper White cardstock – with the Adhesive Sheet on the back.
  • Only the handle and trim were needed in Whisper White. These parts were fussy cut and stuck onto the bag.

Here’s a closer view of the layering.

DSP paper piecing

The Whisper White panel was matted onto Crumb Cake and then popped onto the card front with dimensionals.

I stamped the sentiment (Wishing you Sunny Days) onto Daffodil Delight Cardstock in Versamark after rubbing the cardstock with the Embossing Buddy. I sprinkled on some White Embossing Powder and then set using the Heat Tool.

The sentiment is cut out using a Framelit from another Occasions’ Catalogue Sneak Peek – the Needlepoint Elements Framelits. The framelit is in fact symmetrical – I’ve just snipped one end off! I think this framelit set is going to be very popular as there are several really interesting background elements along with those that cut out images in the Needle & Thread Stamp set.

I’ve included the photo of the card so you can see what I’m describing.

Sunny Days in Daffodil Delight

The embellishments are the third sneak peek on my card. They are the Daffodil Delight coloured Gingham Gala Adhesive-backed Sequins. 

As always, I’ve carried some design element through to the inside of my card.

Greek Isles Achievers’ November Blog Hop

Snowflake Showcase

The Snowflake Showcase Promotion is running in November. I didn’t expect it to be quite so relevant to us in New Zealand at the moment from a weather perspective – but guess what – we had snow in parts of New Zealand yesterday!!!! 

 It’s summer!!! The weather is currently supposed to be a bit more like the images in our Blog Hop Header!!!

Greek Isles Incentive Trip Achievers Blog HopThose hopping today are all Stampin’ Up!® Demonstrators from all around the world who have met the requirements, and earned the amazing 2019  Stampin’ Up! Incentive trip – while everyone can try, only a limited number of demos achieve this trip. Of the about 50,000 demonstrators from throughout the world 445 earned this particular trip. I know there are some new faces who will be on the trip next year – Werhoo!!!

As Achieving Demonstrators, we hop together once a month to show you ideas and designs using current Stampin’ Up!® products.

We are a little later hopping this month as we have just had our biennial Stampin’ Up! event called OnStage.

OnStage & CentreStage

There is a three-day OnStage Live event each April and November in one location globally. At the same time there are several other OnStage Local events going on in numerous locations throughout the world. Attending OnStage events is one of my highlights of being a Stampin’ Up! demo – we get to meet up with team members we don’t often see, catch up with our crafty demo friends from around New Zealand (and some from overseas too!)

A couple of weekends ago I attended OnStage Local in Auckland and I was also invited to attend the Leadership event called CentreStage.

I’m sharing a few of pictures of these events before I share this month’s project.

CentreStage was on Friday evening and it is always so exciting to walk in for the first time and see how beautifully decorated the room and tables are.

CentreStage Decorations

As you can see from the above photo, CentreStage was a Black and White themed event – and we were celebrating an exciting anniversary – Stampin’ Up!’s 30th Anniversary!

I presented at the CentreStage event, what an honour to be asked – though a little nerve-wracking to do!

Jackie presenting at CentreStage

OnStage on Saturday was an exciting fun-filled day which I got to share with several of my thINK Creative Team Members – including two honourary members from Australia!

thINK Creative

… and I also spent the day with my Upline Kristine. We don’t see each often so we love that we can spend time together at OnStage!

Kristine and Jackie

One of the fun things that Stampin’ Up! is known for are their generous Prize Patrols – and this year was evening more amazing than usual!

Excitement

Stampin’ Up! is also generous in several other ways. The achievements of demonstrators are recognised and rewarded in many ways – including the Incentive Trip which this Blog Hop is based around. Five New Zealand demonstrators have earned the 2019 Greek Isles Incentive Trip, four were in Auckland to be recognised.

Celebrations

I had team gifts and swaps and crafting items to take to OnStage – so of course Belle got to come along too!!

Bell at On Stage

And I certainly needed her to carry home all the amazing gifts that I received at CentreStage and OnStage

Gifts

Can you tell that I had fun?!

What is even more exciting is that the next OnStage Live Event will be held here in New Zealand in April next year.

It is going to be incredible!

Any Stampin’ Up! demo from around the world is eligible to register – though of course there are not 50,000 places available! But you have to be a Demonstrator to get there – so if you’d like to join me at OnStage – join my team! Contact me to find out more – or click on the Join link below.

Now – my Blog Hop Project.

I’m featuring several products that are part of the Snowflake Showcase Promotion. These are a group of products only available in November – so that’s only for 10 more days – less if supplies run out! You can see them all HERE

Project – Black and White Sparkles:

Black and White Sparkles

When you first view the card it looks as if the image is stamped onto Sparkle Glimmer Paper – but when you look more closely the image is actually underneath the sparkle. That is achieved by first stamping your image, then applying a piece of Multipurpose Adhesive Sheet, removing its backing and then covering it with Dazzling Diamonds Stampin’ Glitter. After shaking off any excess glitter, you are left with a stunning sparkling surface with the image under the sparkle.

I loved teaching this sparkly technique at my technique classes and at the Wellington Paper Arts & Crafts Show in October.

Here’s a close-up of the sparkle.

Black and White Sparkle

 

Black and White Sparkles

This photo shows the inside of the card which features a snowflake cut from the Whisper White Velvet paper. The Velvet Paper not only looks luxurious – it also feels  luxurious! It’s been so popular that it hs already sold out in several other countries – and there is not much left in the South pacific – so if you want some – get in quick – order online HERE.

You can see all the products I used at the end of the post.

Here’s a summary of the technique.

The photo below shows the first few steps – stamp, apply sheet and remove backing. You can see the resulting adhesive on the surface in the bottom right image.

Dazzling Diamonds Sparkle

After covering with Stampin’ Glitter and shaking/tapping off any excess, this is the result.

Dazzling Diamonds Sparkle

As you can see this technique is not confined to black ink on white paper. Play with other combinations. I have found that pale cardstock gives the most striking results.

 

Below is the Stampin’ Up! video about the Snowflake Showcase.

Remember these products are only available until the end of November – and only while supplies last. Some have already sold out in some markets but are currently still all available in New Zealand, tough supplies are dwindling. Don’t wait if you want to get any of these – they’ll be gone before you know it.

 

 

Thank you for joining us today – we are so happy that you are taking part in our blog hop.

Make sure that you don’t miss out on one blog as there are some incredible designs you are going to see today to inspire you.

 

 

Remember that currently, you are at my blog Jackie Noble | creativeJax

Festive Farmhouse Gift Bag Satchel – Design it With Designer Series Paper Blog Hop

Festive Farmhouse DSP satchel Gift Box

 

Design it With Designer Series Paper

Welcome to this month’s Design it with Designer Series Paper Blog Hop. 

Our Design Team is made up of 11 Stampin’ Up! Demonstrators from throughout the world – one from each of the countries/markets that Stampin’ Up! has a presence in. We have come together to share projects focusing on the beautiful Designer Series Paper in the Stampin’ Up! Catalogue.

Each month we will be featuring a different paper and our Designer Series Paper (DSP) for November is Festive Farmhouse

Festive Farmhouse

 

The paper’s colours are Basic Black, Cherry Cobbler, Gray Granite, Mossy Meadow, Very Vanilla, Whisper White.   There are also lots of coordinating products as the paper is part of the Festive Farmhouse Suite which you can view HERE.

I’ve made a Gift Box in the Shape of a Satchel – a Festive Farmhouse Satchel.

With the same basic dimensions and construction from two 12×12″ sheets of DSP, the inspiration for this satchel gift bag is a bag by Ronda Wade. 

Festive Farmhouse DSP satchel Gift Box

I’ve included the basic instructions for the box below – but let’s look at the gift bag a little more closely first.

The coordinating products in the Festive Farmhouse Suite were perfect to decorate the bag and turn it into a container that holds items the size of a Stamp set. You can see in the photo below of the open satchel, that I’ve put a single stamp case inside – but it could easily fit more.

Festive Farmhouse DSP satchel Gift Box

The straps and handle are made from three pieces of 5/8″ Striped Burlap Trim – one for the strap at the top and two that wrap around the whole satchel and help hold the flap closed.

The photo below shows one strap open and one closed. On each strap, there is a magnet on the back of the ribbon (where the Cherry Cobbler Cardstock is wrapped around it) and one between the starry Mossy Meadow DSP and the Cherry Cobbler rectangle

Festive Farmhouse DSP satchel Gift Box

Here is a side view with both of the straps open and the top flap semi-open.

That top flap tucks in behind the Cherry Cobbler rectangle (see left image in the photo below). When I attached the Cherry Cobbler rectangle to the satchel with several dimensionals, I only placed the dimensionals on the lower half which allows the flap to tuck in underneath it. In both of these images, you can also see that the ribbon isn’t attached to the satchel all the way to the edge of the flap – again allowing the flap to tuck in and the ribbon straps to come down over the top. This fastening system means the satchel can be opened and closed repeatedly without any damage occurring. 

Festive Farmhouse DSP satchel Gift Box

The photo below shows the satchel closed.

Festfarmhouse Satchel Gift Bag

You can see I have decorated the satchel straps with DSP and the Co-ordinating Galvanised Button where the magnets are. There is also some Mossy Meadow twine from the Festive Farmhouse Cotton Twine threaded through each button. 

 

On the front panel, I’ve added another rectangle of DSP (matted onto Very Vanilla), a strip of Very Vanilla with “Christmas” stamped in Mossy Meadow and a wooden word element (Festive Farmhouse Elements). The stamp is from the Merry Christmas to All stamp set. 

Merry Christmas to All

Such a versatile set that works with so many other sets.

To the satchel handle, I’ve tied a small gift tag. Made from Very Vanilla cardstock matted onto DSP, I’ve used the Mossy Meadow Cotton Twine to attach it. The  “To:  From:  ” sentiment is from Sincerely Santa – the stamp set that coordinates with the Sincerely Santa Project Kit (Christmas Tags)

Sincerely Santa

One last look at the completed bag. 

Festive Farmhouse DSP satchel Gift Box

How to :

The bag is constructed from two pieces of 12×12″ DSP. The images below show the inside of the bag/satchel.

Bag Front (top image in the photo below): Cut 4″ off side of one sheet, score at 2″ on the two short sides and on one long side.  With the scored edges to the sides and at the bottom, cut along the vertical score lines at the bottom – up to the horizontal score line.  Place Tear and Tape along edges as shown

Bag Back (bottom image in the photo below): Score at 4″ on one side, and 2″ on the other three sides. With the 4″ scoreline at the top, cut along the vertical score lines at the bottom (up to the horizontal score line) and then cut out rectangles at the top as shown. Place Tear and Tape along bottom flaps as shown.

Festive Farmhouse DSP satchel Gift Box

Remove tape backing, fold along scorelines and construct the front and the back of the bag/satchel as shown below.

Festive Farmhouse DSP satchel Gift Box

The front of the satchel is on the left and the back on the right. To complete the satchel, join the front and back together by turning one section over, and carefully placing the back section inside the front section. The bag sides and bottom will be a double thickness. 

Decorate as you wish.

November Hop with the Tutorial Bundle Design Team

Hello from New Zealand and welcome to this month’s Blog Hop with the Tutorial Bundle Design Team where I share an illuminated Home Decor Project made with the Snowflake and Takeout Thinlits Die sets!

Tutorial Bundkle Design Team Blog Hop
The team is ready to help you create beautiful handmade projects featuring Stampin’ Up! products. We have a Tutorial Bundle and a Blog Hop for you.

The Tutorial Bundle  

 
Our Design team has created a bundle of 12 tutorials using Stampin’ Up! products. 
This month the bundle contains tutorials for traditional style cards, 3D packaging, Memories & More cards, home decor items, and paper crafting techniques! It’s full of fabulous projects, many featuring the gorgeous products in the Catch a Snowflake Promotion which started yesterday!!! You really don’t want to miss out on these limited time products – they’re only here till the end of November. And with the tutorial bundle you have so many ideas to put them to great use.
 
Here’s a Sneak Peak of what you will receive in the bundle.
November Tutorial Bundle Sneak peek
 
 
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!
 
You can purchase the Tutorial Bundle is $NZ20 – 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.

The Tutorial Bundle Design Team Blog Hop

 
To celebrate the release of the October Bundle, the Design Team is holding a Blog Hop.
Remember, these Blog Hop projects are not the same projects as in our tutorial, as the projects in the Tutorial Bundle are exclusive and not shown anywhere else.
I have a home decor project to share today. My Tutorial Bundle is also a Home decor item – but a different one!
 
Snowfall Thinlits meet Takeout Thinlits
There are two thinlits die sets used to make this project. 
Takeout Thinlits Dies
 
I think this stunning wee box has gone under the radar here in New Zealand as it’s among the Halloween products – and we don’t really do Halloween! But trust me – it is soooo much more than Halloween!
 
The second Thinlits Dies set I have used is the Snowfall Thinlits Dies.
Snowfall Thinlits
 
Again – another set that may not seem very relevant to us in the Southern Hemisphere as we head into summer.
But it is more than snowflakes … and of course, winter will roll around again – but this set won’t be available then. The products in the Catch a Snowflake Promotion are only available until the end of November.
 
You can check out all the goodies online by clicking this image.
Catch a snowflake Promotion
 
I have used three of the Takeout boxes, stacked together with a small string of seed lights threaded through all three boxes.
Here a side-by-side view with and without its lights on.
 It’s a bit hard to see what the Takeout box looks like in these photos – so here is one as the box is designed to be made – with the opening on the top.
 

Takeout Box

We made this little cutie at a Team Training day with Jacque Williams.
 
The image on the left in the photo below shows an empty box the right way up with the top open. The image on the right shows it upside down – how I’ve used it in my home decor piece. 
You cut two of the large die to make each box.
I’ve used one of the extra pieces from the set to cut out one side of the box. There are several different shapes that can be used to do this.
   
I stacked three of them on top of each other.
The top two were completely sealed, while the opening at the bottom box had two of the flaps stuck together and two left so they could be opened. That way I can get tot he battery for the seed lights.
 
   
While I have adhered the boxes together, I’ve also wrapped a piece Whisper White Dotted Tulle Ribbon around all of them and tied it off with a bow on top.
 
I punched holes in the top and the bottom of the boxes to thread the seed lights through. 
To help with reflecting the light, there is a piece of Sparkle Glimmer Paper in the base of each box.
The top and bottom boxes have one side cut out and closed off with a piece of Window Sheet, while the middle box has both front and back cut out and these openings have no cover. 
You can see in the photo below that I’ve decorated the boxes with some of the gorgeous snowflake shapes cut from Sparkle Glimmer Paper with three different dies from the Snowfall Thinlits Dies.
   
There are some stuck to the outside and I’ve suspended three on Whisper White Baker’s Twine inside the middle box among the seed lights.
The image below shows the ribbon wrapped around along with the snowflake decorations.
Snowfall Thinlits meet Takeout Thinlits  And one last pic!
Snowfall meets Takeout
I hope you’ve enjoyed my Blog Hop Project this month – I sure had fun making it!
Here’s a Sneak peek of my tutorial project. The tutorial Bundle contains all the details to make another home decor item using the Takeout Thinlits Dies.

Design it with DSP – All is Bright Fancy Fold

All is Bright DSP and Snowflake Showcase

Design it With Designer Series Paper

Welcome to this month’s Design it with Designer Series Paper Blog Hop. 

Our Design Team is made up of 11 Stampin’ Up! Demonstrators from throughout the world – one from each of the countries/markets that Stampin’ Up! has a presence in. We have come together to share projects focusing on the beautiful Designer Series Paper in the Stampin’ Up! Catalogue.

Each month we will be featuring a different paper and our Designer Series Paper (DSP) for October is All is Bright.

All is Bright - Design it with DSPThe paper’s colours are Call Me Clover, Cherry Cobbler, Crumb Cake, gold, Real Red, Shaded Spruce and Whisper White and the artwork is a mixture of photo type images, graphics and backgrounds. There are lots of coordinating products as the paper is part of the All is Bright Suite which you can view HERE.

Here’s my All is Bright card.

All is Bright - Design it with DSP

While part os a great suite of products, today I’ve paired one of the botanical patterns with products from the Snowflake Showcase – a limited time promotion called “Catch a Snowflake” that is running in November. These are three products from the promotion that I’ve used in my card.

Snow is Glistening

Snow is Glistening

Snowfall Thinlits

Snowflake Trinkets

Snowflake Trinkets

I’ll include all the details of the promotion towards the end of my post, but you can contact me to pre-order these now – ready for their release on 1st November.

While you may not know it from the photo above, my project is a Fancy Fold card made using the All is Bright DSP. The card is like a little book – there is a page to turn in the middle! The advantage of this fold is that you get to see both sides of the DSP!

All is Bright - Design it with DSPI’ve taken a 12″x6″ piece of DSP and with the inside of the card facing up, I’ve scored it at 2″, 5″, and 8″ on the Simply Scored Tool. I then folded the paper so I could glue the two parts that are 3″ wide together to form the middle “page” of the card.

Here is the first view after opening the front of the card.

All is Bright - Design it with DSPI’ve decorated the with two snowflakes cut with the Snowfall Thinlits. There are 20 dies in this set – including 15 snowflakes! The large snowflake is cut from the Gold Glimmer Paper, the smaller snowflake from the Gold Foil Sheet and there is a piece of Gold 3/8″ Metallic-Edge Ribbon between the snowflakes. 

Next up, the layout after I turn the middle “page” of my card.

All is Bright - Design it with DSPThe Very Vanilla card liner is matted onto Gold Foil Sheet and the Sentiment is stamp in Shaded Spruce. Some more glimmery snowflakes decorate the inside pages. 

All is Bright - Design it with DSPThe front of the card also has Very Vanilla Cardstock matted onto Gold Foil Sheet.

The Tree is stamped in Shaded Spruce while “Joy” has been heat embossed in Gold. I love the way the gold snowflakes on the inside pages peek out and can be seen when the card is closed.

Did you notice the gold embellishment in the top left hand corner of my card? Here’s a closer view.

All is Bright - Design it with DSPThe snowflake Trinkets are silver but I’ve painted this one with Vegas Gold Shimmer Paint! Now it’s a perfect match with all the other Gold Elements.

And if you’re wondering, this is the back of my card – which is the back of the DSP seen in the inside of the card.

All is Bright - Design it with DSPThis shows on the front of the card too and here is the whole card front again so you can see that.

Greek Isles Achievers’ Blog Hop

Holiday Catalogue Acheivers Blog HopAs well as a new Holiday Catalogue – it’s a new year at Stampin’ Up!®. That means the timeframe to earn the 2019 Incentive Trip has now finished. Congratulations to everyone who met the criteria and who will be cruising the Greek Isles next July!

Greek Isles Incentive Trip Achievers Blog HopThose hopping today are all Stampin’ Up!® Demonstrators from all around the world who have met the requirements, and earned the amazing Stampin’ Up! Incentive trip – while everyone can try, only a limited number of demos achieve this trip. We haven’t heard how many of the approximately 45,000 demonstrators from throughout the world have earned this particular trip – but it is usually about 450. I know there are some new faces who will be on the trip next year – Werhoo!!!

As Achieving Demonstrators, we hop together once a month to show you ideas and designs using current Stampin’ Up!® products and this month we are featuring products from the 2018 Holiday Catalogue.

I have three cards to share today and each uses some of my favourite things in the new catalogue – I say some because there are many, many items I fell in love with!

I’ll keep things simple by sharing the projects followed by a list of the products I used when creating it. I’ll mark anything from the Holiday Catalogue with an asterisk and include a link for you to check the product out in my online shop. The shop is a great place to get more information and images of products – so it is worth looking at the links even if you are not purchasing.

Project One:

First up a card I made for an US based swap. I enjoying joining these international swaps but do find it hard to wait for all the wonderful swaps to arrive back to me in New Zealand.

Holiday Catalogue swap Tag & Tidings

 

Project Two:

Up next is another swap card. This one was for my thINK Creative Team swap.

Holiday Catalogue Swap Great Joy and Shimmer Paint

Holiday Catalogue Swap Glimmer PaintA closer look at all that golden shimmer!

Project Three:

My third and final card is the one that uses some of the products that I received on the Alaskan Incentive Trip. I think of this as a very “Kiwi” Christmas card – bright and summery!

Holiday Catalogue Making Christmas Bright

Holiday Catalogue Making Christmas BrightLove how the Finetip Glue dries shiny!

 

There’s just one other ting I want to share with you today – a video of an about-to-be-released, limited time product suite – Snowflake Showcase. And yes – as a demonstrator I already have these goodies and am enjoying creating all sorts of projects. Keep an eye on my Blog for more inspiration!

 

These products will be available to purchase from 1st – 30th November.

Contact me now if you live in New Zealand and would like to pre-order them.

 

Thank you for joining us today – we are so happy that you are taking part in our blog hop.

Make sure that you don’t miss out on one blog as there are some incredible designs you are going to see today to inspire you.

October Hop with the Tutorial Bundle Design Team

Hello from New Zealand and welcome to this month’s Blog Hop with the Tutorial Bundle Design Team where I share Christmas cards inspired by the Pohutukawa Tree (The New Zealand Christmas  Tree) and made with the Detailed Leaves Dies!

Tutorial Bundkle Design Team Blog Hop
The team is ready to help you create beautiful handmade projects featuring Stampin’ Up! products. We have a Tutorial Bundle and a Blog Hop for you.

The Tutorial Bundle  

 
Our Design team has created a bundle of 12 tutorials using Stampin’ Up! products. 
This month the bundle contains tutorials for traditional style cards, 3D packaging, fancy fold cards, and paper crafting techniques! It’s full of fabulous projects featuring lots of product from the new Holiday Catalogue EXCITING!!! you don’t want to miss out on.
 
Here’s a Sneak Peak of what you will receive in the 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!
 
You can purchase the Tutorial Bundle is $NZ20 – 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.

The Tutorial Bundle Design Team Blog Hop

 
To celebrate the release of the October Bundle, the Design Team is holding a Blog Hop.
Remember, these Blog Hop projects are not the same projects as in our tutorial, as the projects in the Tutorial Bundle are exclusive and not shown anywhere else.
I have two cards to share today – both using the same framelits and technique as my card you’ll find in the tutorial.
Detailed Leaves Thinlits Dies
But rather than being in neutral shades – these two were inspired by our beautiful Pohutukawa Tree – “The New Zealand Christmas Tree”. 
The reds and greens are perfect for Christmas and one of the framelits in the Detailed Leaves Thinlits Dies reminded me of the shape of the pohutukawa flower.
 
These photo of my cards were taken in front of one of our pohutukawa trees – not yet in bloom though!
pohutukawa tree inspired cards
The first card is on a Cherry Cobbler based and I have cut the leaf from a piece of Designer Series Paper (DSP) – the Grey Granite woodgrain from Festive FarmHouse. It is matted onto another piece of DSP – the Tranquil Tide spots from Joyous Noel – which has a detailed edge from the border die in the Detailed Leaves Thinlits. I’ve carried that edged through to the inside of the card and onto the envelope too.
 
You can see in this close up that the bow is made from lots of crinkly strands. This is from one of Stampin’ Up! Ribbons – the Cherry Cobbler 1/4″ double-Stitched Ribbon
To get the strands – cut your ribbon and then loosen the individual threads from the edge. You’ll end up with lots of cool strands you can use on your projects. I love deconstructing ribbons to get extra texture options.
Here’s the second colour-way of my Pohutukawa Tree inspired cards. 
This card is on a Tranquil Tide base, with the leaf cut from the same Grey Granite woodgrain. It is matted onto another piece of DSP – the Merry Merlot poinsettia pattern from Joyous Noel. I’ve kept all the detailing the same as in the first card above. This time the threads come from the Tranquil Tide 3/8″ mini Ruffled Ribbon.
Pohutukawa Inspired Cards
The texture is slightly different from with the Cherry Cobbler ribbon. It is always a surprise to find out what exactly you are going to get when you first deconstruct a ribbon – it varies!
 
 
Here they are side by side! 
The greeting is from the stunning Timeless Tidings stamp set. I’ve used my Stampin’ Write Markers directly on the stamp to get the different colours.
Don’t overlook this set just because it co-ordinates with the Timeless Tidings Project Kit. The kit is fabulous and the set is perfect for making the cards in the kit – but the sentiments in the set are some of my favourites in the Holiday Catalogue.
Timeless Tidings
 Definitely a set you will want to add to your Christmas crafting collection!
 
I hope you’ve enjoyed my Blog Hop Project this month. Here’s a Sneak peek of my tutorial project which contains all the details on how to make an elegant neutral card.

A Flash Sale & New Stamparatus Accessories

October has kicked off with THREE exciting pieces of news – make sure you read right to the end!

#1.  There is a Flash Sale on now – it ends 7th October – don’t miss out!

Celebrate World Card Making Day

The first Saturday of every year is World Card Making Day and this year we are celebrating with a Stampin’ Up! sale for ONE WEEK ONLY.

The list of items on sale is limited – but it does have some essentials for card making – a few stamps, card kits and some adhesive to hold everything together! You can click on the list to enlarge it, or there are some images.

Sale items

To learn more about any of these items, and to see them in my online store, just click on the images below.

Just click on any of the images below to learn more about the item in my online store. There are additional images and even some videos in the store so it is well worth checking the items out there.

 

If you do make a purchase online – the Hostess code is 4JTK4GNW. 

YAY – Card Kits are in the Sale!

 

It is great that four card kits are in the sale – and the first three on the list are All-Inclusive Kits – even better! Throw in a pair of snips and some adhesive and everything you need is there – including stamps and ink!!!

Kits make great gifts! Is there anyone on your Christmas Shopping List who would enjoy a kit? They could already be crafters, or they could be a beginner! The Kits are suitable for all levels of crafting experience.

They are also perfect for crafting on the go – especially the All-Inclusive kits! Having one or two while you are away on holiday means you can quickly make a card if you need one, or just do a spot of cardmaking while you relax!

#2.  Ready, Set Starter Kit available NOW!

Stampin’ Up! have introduced a BRAND NEW alternative Starter Kit to the South Pacific market for a limited time.

Ready Set Starter Kit

Until the end of December, anyone wanting to join Stampin’ Up! has TWO OPTIONS to choose from – the regular kit or the new “Ready Set Starter Kit”.

The regular Starter Kit remains fully customisable, while the alternative Ready Set Starter Kit includes predetermined products aimed at helping get your business off to a great start!

So whether you’re thinking of taking advantage of the regular discount you get as a Demonstrator, or if you are wondering about starting your own Business (big or small!) – there an option to suit!

You can read more about joining HERE 

#3.  New Stamparatus Accessories are Here!

STAMPARATUS Accesories

 

I’m excited to share that Stampin’ Up! have introduced three new Accessories to use with the fabulous Stamparatus! 

  • Small Grid Paper (Inches one side, centimeters on the other. Fits the Stamparatus)
  • Foam Mats (Used with photopolymer stamps. These will wear and it’s great to have replacement mats available to ensure even stamping)
  • Plates (While it is possible you may need to replace your plates – it is way more likely you will love having an extra set. These will be so handy when using multiple stamps as you’ll be able to have several set up ready to go without swapping the stamps)

You can buy these three items individually – or get them all together as a group – so much easier than adding three product codes!

Replacement magnets also continue to be available in case you misplace or break the ones that come with your Stamparatus.

These products are not part of any promotion – they’ve been added to the ongoing product listing. 

You can click on any of the images in the table below to find out more information 

 


 
 Whew you’ve made it to the end!

Contact me if you’ve got any questions. 

If you order online, please use the current Hostess Code:
