Team training night


I recently had another team training night and after many requests we focused on the brayer. We were all very inspired by Kerry Bunting's beautiful cards at Regionals. I taught them 3 different techniques using the brayer, first one was emboss resist (that's the baby card) then we did brayered sky (sunset card) and finally brayered embossing. They all loved it and couldnt wait to get home and try out what they learned. There are a few sneak peeks here you may notics. The baby card uses a new stamp set and matching wheel called Baby Boutique. And the card in the front uses a new embossing folder called Lacy Brocade from the new Holiday Catalogue. I have also used some of the new In Colors, more about them in a minute....


We always do swaps at my training nights and here are some of the girls swaps. The first two are from Jacki.

The sail boat card comes from Jeniece and the bird from Judy.
 These two cute Christmas cards come from Jenny and Liz.

Here is is my swap. Another sneak peek too. I have used all the new In Colors here and they are just beautiful together I think. Plus I have used a new set called Papaya Collage which is just gorgeous. I have finished it off with some new stitched ribbon and the sentiment comes from Tiny Tags.
I am working on a special project at the moment for the upcoming Paperific Expo this weekend, stay tuned for pics soon.

Melbourne Regional Event

On Saturday I was thrilled to be asked to demonstrate some new products for the Stampin' Up! Melbourne Heartfelt Event. I jumped at the opportunity to showcase the gorgeous new Petite Purse Die. I designed a couple of these myself but found lots of inspiration online as I only had a week to get my display collection done.

The first pic I call my 'designer collection' LOL. When I saw the new Holiday Catalogue and the cute Halloween Designer Series Paper called Howlstooth & Scaringbone I instantly saw a Burberry inspired handbag in my mind, I ended up creating two different styles using the new Designer Ribbon Slides. The two black ones were inspired by some I found online. The top left one comes from the very talented Patty Bennett and she has a great tutorial for that one. I found the Chanel one here. For mine I used the Houndstooth embossing folder and the Silver Glimmer Paper. I used the 1/2" Circle and 3/4" Circle punches to create the logo.
This collection features the new Natural Composition Specialty Designer Series paper plus a purse done with fabric. I have used a new Naturals Designer button on the left one and an Antique Brad for the one on the right.The fabric used is the Spice Cake range. The one at the back was inspired by this one and the one on the right came from talented Frenchie, she also has a tutorial here.

These two come from Frenchie again. She does great tutorials. You can check them out here.

I love this group. The one on the left features the new Candlelight Christmas Specialty Designer Series Paper. This is the 'special' sheet inside it. It's probably a little hard to see in the pic but it's a window sheet with red flcoking - just GORJUS!!! The one at the back was inspired by talented LeeAnn Greff and she also has a great tutorial for this one here. I have used a different sheet from the same DSP pack for this one with some Real Red Carstock and embossed it with the new Lacy Brocade Embossing folder. I finished it off with some Very Vanilla Taffeta Ribbon and a new Vintage Faceted Button. The wagon on the right was inspired by this one.

Here are some cards using the die, see how versatile this die really is! The card on the left was inspired by this one. I have used the new Summer Smooches DSP and the new Large Scallop Edgelit. The one on the right was inspired by this one here. I have used the new Elegant Butterfly Punch with the framelits using the new Festive Piercing Pack. The sentiments on both are from the Itty Bitty Banners Stamp Set, it has coordinating framelits to make cutting these out super easy!.The purse in the front uses the new Delicate Designs Embossing folder.

Finally here are my fun ones. The backpack on the left was inspired by talented Mary Fish's backpack. The one in the middle features the new Comfort Cafe DSP and cute new In Color Dahlias as well as the new Fancy Fan Embossing folder. The watering can was inspired from this one where there is also a great tutorial.
See now I know you just have to have this cute die becasue there is just soooooo much you can do with it right! Well from September 1st you can order it and get creative as well with its possibilities. Call me on 0414400841 or email me at felic77@hotmail.com to place your order.
