Sale-a-bration Product of the Week: A Happy Thing

Published by under cards | Feb 24 2015

A Happy Thing stamp set is another of the Sale-a-bration gift options for this year.

With every AUD $90 purchase during Sale-a-bration (ends March 31), choose a FREE item such as a stamp set, accessories or colouring tools.

.

Here are some of the lovely samples that Stampin’ Up! shared with us recently. So sweet.

A Happy Thing - Sale-a-bration stamp set

A Happy Thing is a cheerful stamp set that uses line art imagery. It’s perfect for colouring so you can explore your favourite colouring methods with this set, and let your inner artist go to work! Try the Blendabilities or your Aqua Painters. The result is gorgeous artwork that is deceptively easy.

Have you tried the Masking Technique? This stamp set is a perfect one to try this handy technique. Learn more about it in the video below:

Don’t forget to check out the current Weekly Deals and stop by the Clearance Rack for a bargain.

Remember: purchases of $90 or more (includes sale items) will earn you a free Sale-a-bration product of your choice – such as the A Happy Thing stamp set.

Sale-a-bration Product of the Week: Lotus Blossom

Published by under cards | Jan 31 2015

So Sale-a-bration has been going for a few weeks now, and I’ve noticed a trend among my customers who have earned a Sale-a-bration freebie: the Lotus Blossom Sale-a-bration stamp set is a very popular choice! This 3-step stamp set is beautiful and cleverly designed.

Check it out in this video:


Stampin’ Up! shared these samples with us this week on our Demonstrator site. I love them all, they are so beautiful.

Coastal Cabana Lotus Blossom

The sponging of Crumb Cake ink around the Naturals Ivory card base is a beautiful touch to this card. The burlap ribbon and tea lace doilies finish it off perfectly.

Cobbler Lotus Blossom

I love the bold red on this lotus blossom, over a layer of Typeset Specialty Paper.

Calypso Lotus Blossom

The soft Crumb Cake seam binding ribbon and Venetian Crochet Trim add a feminine touch to this card.

Blushing Bride Lotus Blossom

And here we have a touch of Blushing Bride in the chevron ribbon and patterned paper from the Subtles designer series Colour Collection.

Did you choose this as your free Sale-a-bration item or is it still on your wishlist?

Bloom For You + Fun Flower Punch = Perfect Match

Published by under cards | Dec 07 2014

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 | Nov 04 2014

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,
