Whole Latte Love - a Sale-a-bration Sneak Peek

My favourite time of the Stampin' Up! year has almost arrived, Sale-a-bration Time!  It's the time when you can earn some gorgeous, free stamping goodies and accessories and it runs in Australia from the 22nd January until the 22nd March.  It's an awesome time to be a customer, a hostess or SU Demonstrator.  With Stampin' Up! also turning 25, there  a lot more surprises in store.  I can't wait!

As a demonstrator I have been able to earn freebies in our pre-order time and today I wanted to share just a snippet of some of the goodies I have been playing with over the last few days.

I had already cut this coffee cup gift card out several months ago and it has been waiting for the right stamp to put on the 'cozy'. The little coffee cup stamp is from the SAB set called, Patterned Occasions.


The DSP in the background is another SAB item from the Designer Series Paper Pack, Sycamore Street and the pattern on the reverse has been used on the coffee cup cozy.  There's a ribbon and button pack to match the DSP too.  As Miranda would say, "Such fun".

Wow! this is my second post in a day.  If you're looking for my post for still addINKtive challenges, please scroll down one.


PS:  In answer to the many emails - "This is a silhouette cutting file so I can't share the template.  However, there are two SU demonstrators that I know of that have similar tutorials/templates for sale on their blog".  Here are the links -

PPS:  15th January 2013 -  I decided to go ahead and make my own Coffee Cup Card.

Doily Cards

I was going a little stir crazy so decided to end my 'blog fasting' today. I lasted 2 weeks which isn't the entire month of March that I was aiming for but I have severely cut down my Internet usage and spent my 'free' time getting my priorities a little more in order :)

Here are some doily cards I wanted to share with you on this beautiful March Long Weekend Holiday. Inspiration came from a very CAS Card I found through Pinterest.

For a Stampin' Up! ® version of this card, please check out what I made using the Butterfly Basics Stamp Set and co-ordinating die.

Pop-Up, Z-Fold, Card in a Box

Hi there.  I've been eying off some great examples of Z-fold, pop-up cards on Pinterest and thought it would be fun to make one.  I tweaked the basic design a little by adding some inserts; the ones you use in card-in-a-box style cards.  So I've called my take on this fun fold, a Pop-Up, Z-Fold, Card in a Box! - It's a crate full of summer strawberries with some home-made strawberry jam sitting on the kitchen bench.

Summer Strawberries
This card was made for a dear friend's birthday and I'm also entering it into two card challenges -
JAI #318 - "Just Add S"

S is for ... strawberries, strawberry jam, straw and summer!
Thanks, JAI!

Here's a bird's eye view before I added all the stamped strawberries etc. -

Scallop Circle Easel Card Tutorial

Punch Potpourri Scallop Circle Easel Card
in the Dynamic Duo of
Melon Mambo and Pretty in Pink

1. Score a piece of card stock through the middle (which is double the length of your die) and line up the folded piece over the Scallop Circle Die (SCD) leaving 4 scallops at the top to form the base of your card.

This is how it should look after you run it through the Big Shot Machine.

2. Score a line through the middle of the top Scallop Circle and fold upwards.

3. Apply Sticky Strip or glue to half the Scallop Circle as shown above.

4. Cut out a single Scallop Circle in the same colour (Melon Mambo) and stick it to the folded half so the top layer sits up like an easel (The top half that is facing will now be a double layer and the bottom half, a single layer of card stock).

5. Cut two circles using the lighter shade (Pretty In Pink) and attach one to the base of the card. Sponge around the edges with the darker shade of ink before gluing the other circle to the front of the card.

6. Stamp…
