This week the class was divided into two groups, with each group working on a different card. I decided to do this as the stamps from the Sale-A-Bration Catalogue are so beautiful but some take a while with double stamping and showcasing different techniques. Our class time was running out and nothing spoils a good crafting session than feeling under pressure to hurriedly stamp and pass things on.
One group worked on the Lots of Lavender and one with the Epic Celebration, both from the S-A-B catalogue and available FREE with purchase of $90.00 worth of products from here.
They made an Eclipse card using the Happy Birthday Die and the Epic Celebrations. Quiet a delicate operation as there are many little pieces to glue back into the card and as sometimes happens it didn’t all go to plan. But as you can see all the cards look great. One has the Happy Birthday removed and not replaced and one has the Happy Birthday recut in Bermuda Bay.
This was the original and so much fun to make.
Our second card featured the Lots of Lavender and 3 ladies made this one.
It required some double stamping and embossing with the Petal Pair Textured Embossing Folder which is tucked into the side of page 23 in the Occasions Catalogue.
They will all swap next week, so come back then and see what the two groups have done.
Even though I email images to each member before the class sometimes just seeing the real article gives off more ideas of how the stamp set can be used so we will see if we have any new creative ideas appear next week.
Till then Naomi.
One thing that hasn’t changed for 2018 is my Crafty Creations Classes at the Caloundra Community Center in Queensland Australia. We are a small group, with one new lady, of 11 women who meet every Friday to have fun, make a card or craft item and then share a cuppa at Myrtles Pantry.
Tomorrow is Australia Day so no cards but these are our creations for last week. We used the free stamp set Heartfelt blooms from the Sale-A-Bration Catalogue.
The stamp was inked up with Cherry Cobbler before randomly stamping on Whisper White CS. Then we cut it into 3 unequal parts and mounted it on to Basic Black CS. A piece of Emerald Envy Ribbon was tied across the front with matching bow before being adhered to Emerald Envy CS.
To complete the card the sentiment from the same stamp set was inked in Emerald Envy then run through the big shot with the Stitched Oval Framelit and using Sticky dots tucked under the bow. Just a few pearls finished the card.
This stamp set is the first for Stampin’ Up! using their new line of Distinktive Stamps (Patent Pending) which are stamps that lay down the inks at different levels to get a photographic image.
Some tips on using these stamps can be found here, just click the words Stamping With Photo Realistic Stamps(1)
The last few days have been all out of wack, to the point where I was about to create a new blog and remembered I hadn’t posted my lovely class ladies wonderful achievements for Friday.
We made a card with a difference and tapped into the current craze for colouring. Stampin ‘ Up! as usual are right on trend and have offered this paper free with any order over $90 AUD. They aptly called it Inside the Lines.
Whilst it may look a simple card, Side Easel Card, we had some fun precisely lining up the little squares.
Whilst it is hard to see in the image there is a trail of Olive Green under the butterflies (Now retired) taken from One Wild Ride. Most of the sentiments were courtesy of Rose from Teeny Tiny Sentiments. The original card was an Easter card with sentiment from Suite sentiment.
On the inside we made a space for some words. I plan on something like “Now the Easter Holidays are here just grab yourself some Watercolour pencils and just relax!! ” and a piece for more colouring.
Measurements and tutorial can be found here.

So much to do and so little time, so a quick post hoping that you have all had a safe and Happy Christmas. Crafty Creations are on holidays but just to keep in touch and keep your creative juices flowing I’m sharing this little toddlers card.
Can you identify which stamp set the little nest is from? How many guessed the Swirly Birds Set. Well done you!
The papers are Whisper White and Flirty Flamingo. Inks used Blushing Bride, and Flirty Flamingo and Basic Grey for the nest.
The embossed background used the Seaside EF, a versatile folder, not just for sea themed cards!! Love the Layering Oval Dies, makes framing so quick and easy. The sentiment was from a free retired Sale-A-Bration Stamp Set, Party Pants. Getting these free stamps sets is a quick way to build up your supply. You are all so lucky to be able to do that soon.
Number 2 is a Large Number Framelit and the little suit Something for Baby SS and Baby’s First Framelits. All topped off by some flowers using the Blooming Heart Thinlits and dotted with some black pearls.
Get ready for the NEW YEAR.
I am, lots of organising and sorting so can have a super year. Cheers Naomi
