Stampin' Up! Inlaid Embossing Mosaic Birthday Cake Card

Hope you are wearing your sunglasses lol.  This week in stamp club we focussed on embossing folders & their many wondrous uses.  This card uses the inlaid embossing technique & we got to use some sneak peek products from the NEW 2013-2014 Catalogue which goes live July 2nd, 2013.

Mosaic Inlaid Embossing Card
It is very bright and fun - perfect for the 10year old I originally designed it for.  I used quite a few embossing folders including the *New* Modern Mosaic embossing folder, Perfect Polka Dot & Square Lattice embossing folders.  The sentiment is from Bring On The Cake one of my go to birthday sentiment sets.

Quick Stampin' Up! Birthday Card

Here is a quick card using up some scraps on my desk & a little sneak peek!  I was demonstrating how to use ink in your embossing folder at a class last week & was left with a Daffodil Delight chevron embossed piece of card stock.  I like the look of Basic Grey & Daffodil Delight so made a little card 10cm x 10cm.  I used a new stamp set called Label Love & the new coordinating punch called Artisan Label Punch.    Only 4 days to go until you can order this set for yourself.

Stampin' Up! Secret Garden Flower Wallet Featuring 2013-2014 In Colours

I recently held a class where we made a card wallet & created 4 matching cards & envelopes.  We used the Secret Garden Framelits combined with some of the new 2013-2014 In Colours.  If you are wanting to save 15% off this bundle, you have only one week left to purchase the Secret Garden set in a Bundle (131099 clear, 131100 Wood).  They are only available in the new catalogue individually.  This goes for all the bundles in the mini catalogue that ends 30th June.   

I am currently working on a PDF file for this class for those that are interested in the class for themselves.  

The Card folder is made from an A4 piece of cardstock, scored to create a holder for the cards. FOr this project I used Wisteria Wonder as the folder base & used the Quatrefancy Specialty DSP window sheet on top of Strawberry Slush.  We also got to make some clay flowers using the new Buttons & Blossoms Simply Pressed Clay Moulds. 

Secret Garden In Colour Flower Wallet.

For the cards I chose Pistachio Pudding (2013-2014 In Colour) as the card base & we used the new Modern Mosaic( New catty sneak peek) & the Honeycomb embossing folders.  As I could only use preorder items I could not get my hands on any In Colour Ribbon so I made do with the retiring Wisteria Wonder Ruffled ribbon.

Stampin' Up! Annual Catalogue 2013-2014 Sneak Peak Tag A Bag Box & Birthday Card

Whilst at the Stampin' Up! Convention a few weeks ago, I got to create a few Make & Takes.  I wasn't feeling all to well that day so I partially created some of them & the rest I left for when I got home.  A few days ago I got out my Make & Takes & finished a few off.  I love the new colours, particularly the new In Colours so I tried to make a coordinating birthday card for the box we created.

Here is the box we created at convention(I actually made mine at home as I wanted it to get home in one piece).  It was made using the new Tag A Bag Gift boxes.  The coordinating colours of Bermuda Bay, Calypso Coral, Coastal Cabana, Whisper White & Crisp Cantaloupe.  All tied together with a Summer Starfruit stitched satin ribbon.  Feathers are the trend right now so I have created those with some paper snips & some circle & oval punches.  There are 2 new stamp sets used here.  Gorgeous Grunge & Hello Lovely.

 A friend of mine actually helped out with the make & takes at convention so I thought as a surprise for her Birthday I would make her a card using some of my scraps left over from the make & take kits.  I don't have any of the new colours yet so I made do with Pool Party DSP, Calypso Coral & Naturals White cardstock.

In the next few weeks you will see a few exciting sneak peak projects here, using some lovely items from the New 2013-2014 Annual Catalogue.

Stampin' Up! By The Tide Masculine Birthday Card

I created about 45 swaps for convention & wanted to make a masculine card using By The Tide stamp set.   As it was a swap it had to be super quick to make & relatively simple, without bling, ribbon etc.  This sort of card would make a great beginner class card or a make & take at a party.  My favourite colour at the moment is midnight muse so I based my card around that.
