Shoot For The Stars....

Kia ora koutou

Every now and then I check my thoughts and always try to steer them in a positive direction, sometimes it's not an easy task, BUT - I can tell you my world has changed for the better :)

Well, where to begin - as always my big curly hair days and nights are super busy, plus Stampin' Up! has a lot of great things going on at the mo; Pre-order of the new catalogue for 1st July 2013 - 30th June 2014, retired list, best of stamp sets, my digital studio discounts, new colours colour refresh... Don't worry if I've missed anything, further details and links will be listed at the end of this post :)

Monday Card Class.... 

Daffodil Delight Stippled Blossoms

I asked the lovely Monday class ladies if they would like to make stamped cards (stamping is my favourite way to decorate cards). We used a 'two-step stamp set' (3D stamped image, by stamping base image first then layer detailed image over top) - Stippled Blossoms.  The ladies learnt how to use a stamp-a-ma-jig (stamp repositioner), and how to stamp two tones using the same colour ink, we had spectacular results!

Stamps - Stippled Blossoms, Summer Silhouettes, Apothecary Art, (don't know what stamp set the greeting came from, might be from an old hostess or sale-a-bration set).  
Ink - Daffodil Delight, Gumball Green, Basic Black.
Card - Whisper White, Polka Dot Parade: Daffodil Delight, Old Olive.
Accessories - Labels Collection Framelits, Leaf Sizzlit, Rhinestones, Dimensionals.

Double Embossed - Stippled Blossoms

Stamps - Stippled Blossoms, A Fitting Occasion.
Ink - Primrose Petals
Card - White, Berrylicious, Kiwizest and Emma Bazzill
Accessories - Labels Collection Framelit, Lacy Brocade Embossing Folder, Designer Frames Folder, Lacy Border Punch, 1"Circle Punch, Itty Bitty Punch, Ribbon, Rhinestone, Dimensionals

This 'little pretty' is fun to make:  Center the framelit collection label and place your bigshot top plate halfway on the die (it will only cut out half of the framelit collection label shape). Emboss using the lacy brocade folder, take away one of you bigshot plates (all tabs closed on platform), place card in folder, using rectangle  template with an oval cut-out (window) cover the folder making sure the half cut framelit shape is centered in the oval window, then bigshot plate on top, emboss. Next, use the designer frames folder this time use the oval shaped template (only the oval frame will emboss the card) emboss the same way as before.

Double Dutch Gate Fold Card - Secret Garden

When I saw Graphic 45's beautiful paper 'Secret Garden'...just had to use it - added a bit of Kindy Glitz and Dimensional Magic here and there, voile! A masterpiece, thankfully the Monday class ladies loved this card and didn't mind making it :)
Stamp - Just Believe
Ink - Real Red
Card - French Vanilla, Arizona and Aqua Bazzill, Graphic 45 Secret Garden
Accessories - Lacy Brocade Embossing Folder, Perfect Polkadot Embossing Folder, Scalloped Circle Dies,  Fancy Label Punch, Corner Punch, Swirly Leaf Die, Fancy Rosette Die, Doily Die, Ribbon, Gold Corner Peel Craft, Kindy Glitz, Dimensional Magic, Dimensionals.

Shoot For The Stars...

Thank you Linda from The Paper Peacock for giving me the Kaisercraft pack called 'Blast Off'.  Wow, I had a ball designing two scrapbook pages and a card, especially since my two boys were the subjects of these bright, bold, fun layouts :)

Blast Off

My youngest son Bronson is the cute subject of this layout - he is lifting off, ready to blast off :)

Shoot For The Stars

This layout is intended for my autistic son Xavier, he is so bright, I believe he can achieve anything he puts his mind to - hence 'shoot for the stars' my son <3 (photo coming soon).
