Bloom For You + Fun Flower Punch = Perfect Match

Published by under cards

Thank You For Caring card

The Bloom For You stamp (page 139 Annual Stampin’ Up! catalogue) and its matching Fun Flower punch (p219) are a match made in paper craft heaven!

With only two items you can make a range of cut Bloom For You flowers in any colour you want. Great for making 3D flowers and paper bouquets, as an element on a card or scrapbook page, and because these are a fairly decent size they make great gift tags too. Bloom For You stamp & Fun Flower punch

To make these Bloom For You flowers  I used a couple of extra co-ordinating punches that I had on hand, and they really helped to finish the flower nicely withOUT any hand cutting. Yay for that!

The other punches I used were the small (2.2cm) Scallop Circle Punch and the half inch circle punch, all available from my Stampin’ Up! online store. To assemble, it was simply a matter of stamping the flowers a number of times in the different coloured Stampin’ Up! classic inks and then punching out the required pieces. Layer the pieces with a Stampin’ Dimensionals in between or just some adhesive.

 

Stampin' Up! In Colors: 2014-2016

 

Don’t forget the amazing Year End Close-Out sale is on. Check out my online store Clearance Rack for details.

Note: The colours used on the card at the top of this page are from the 2014-2016 In Color range –  Lost Lagoon, Crushed Curry and Blackberry Bliss – all on a Crumb Cake note card. The panel of patterned paper is from the Park Lane Designer Series Paper pack.

Happy stamping,

Stampin’ Up! Get Your Santa On

Published by under cards

Get Your Santa On - Christmas cards (www.simonebartrum.com)Back in September our Stampin’ Up! team members were invited to join a Christmas card swap.

As always, it was incredibly inspirational.

I especially loved a design by Emma Calleja which featured the cutie Get Your Santa On set. I hadn’t bought it at that stage, but that soon changed after I saw Emma’s adorable card which featured little flags punched from the Trim The Tree paper stack using the Banner punch. This is my version of it:

Get Your Santa On It prompted me to continue the theme by using other feature images in the set, and different embossing folders. Get Your Santa On Get Your Santa On At only AUD$27.95 Get Your Santa On is not only a versatile stamp set, but great value too.   Get Your Santa On - www.simonebartrum.stampinup.net Images copyright Stampin’ Up!® 

 

I got my Cherry Cobbler Blendabilities out for this project. The shading which is part of the stamped image makes it SUPER EASY to colour. I just used the medium or dark Blendabilities marker where ever there were shade lines, and light for the rest. The Dazzling Details glitter adhesive finished off the ‘fur’ on Santa’s coat. That’s a great little product at only $4.50 and will last for ages. Get Your Santa On

 

How are you going with your Christmas cards?

We’re in November now… where is the year going! Happy stamping,

Stampin’ Up! Too Kind

Published by under cards

Too Kind stamp set by Stampin' Up!

Too Kind is one of my favourite stamp sets from Stampin’ Up!. But the funny thing is, I only bought it recently.

I loved it so much that I THOUGHT I had bought it but every time I went to use it I couldn’t find it.

Please tell me I’m not the only one who has ever done that?

Anyway, I was tickled pink when I finally got it because I’ve enjoyed using it every single time.

This two-step stamp set never fails to delight.

The full blooms were stamped in Pool Party ink, and the detailed stamps in Island Indigo. The base card, greeting and seam binding ribbon bow are all in Crumb Cake. The sentiment is from Sassy Salutations.

Happy stamping,

Simone Bartrum, Stampin' Up! demonstrator Australia, Victoria

2014 Holiday Catalogue NOW AVAILABLE – Christmas is Coming!

Published by under cards

Stampin' Up! Australia Holiday Catalogue 2014Yippeee! It’s coming up to my favourite time of the year.  I LOVE Christmas and (for us in Australia) the wonderful long summer holidays. Oooh I can almost smell the suntan lotion and BBQ’s.

While I’m not quite wishing the year away (still too much fun to be had in 2014 yet), I’m thrilled that the NEW Stampin’ Up! 2014 Seasonal Catalogue is here.

  • Or visit my ONLINE STORE to see all the products. You can easily add them to your shopping bag and you’ll be well on your way with this year’s Christmas preparations.

 

Don’t you love browsing through the catalogues and seeing all those clever and inspirational projects?

If you are in Australia and would like your own copy just send me an email or PM me via Facebook and I’ll be happy to pop one in the mail for you. (If you already have a demonstrator who helps you with your orders, please contact her for a copy.)

For your convenience you can download the supplies list which itemizes all the products used to make those inspirational sample projects. Download the SUPPLIES LIST here.

 

Curvy Keepsakes Box – Thinlits Die

I’ve been playing with the new Curvy Keepsakes Box Thinlits Die recently. Squeal!!!! I love this die!

You can find it on page 11 of the new Holiday Catalogue, along with some basic instructions. They make the cutest like boxes, and they even come with little tag dies too.

135853S_Curvy Keepsakes Box

To make the box you just cut out two shapes using the framelits, and adhere them together at the bottom. They have a great little closure mechanism so you don’t even need ribbons, tape, velcro or magnets to keep the box closed. See? Clever!

I added some stars cut out with the Stars Framelit dies to these boxes. The new sturdy Under The Tree specialty paper is just divine for making boxes, bags and totes.

 

Breaking News

We also have some big BIG news about an exciting hostess promotion available until the end of October. Check back from tomorrow for all the news on that one, but in the meantime you might want to go through your diaries and get a Christmas cardmaking workshop organised so you can earn this free bonus. It’s worth it!

 

And one last thing…

Before I go… if you are free this weekend, come to Paperific and say hello to us on the Stampin’ Up! stand. We’ll have Seasonal Catalogue showbags available, free make & takes and lots of lovely projects to inspire you. I’ll be working on the stand on Saturday and Sunday.

Happy stamping,
