White Wash Technique

I have received the next circle journal. The theme for this journal is techniques and fun folds. I decided that I would showcase the whitewash technique.

Stamp and heat emboss your image onto a piece of crumb cake card stock.
Pick up white craft ink with your aqua painter and colour in the embossed image.
Allow the white ink to dry, and then use your colour to paint over it. I used blushing bride and pear pizzaz re-inkers, but you can squish some ink onto the top of your ink pad.


If you are in Australia and don’t have a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator, I would love to help you with your stamping.

Washi Flower

Welcome to our monthly Independent Stampin’ Up! Demonstrators Blog Hop, in which demonstrators from around the world share their latest projects. This month’s theme is ‘Ribbon and Embellishments.’ You may have arrived here from Shirley’s blog. She loves ribbons, so this is one of her favourite blog hop themes!
I don’t usually like working with washi tape, but have you seen how amazing the Pressed Petals Specialty washi tape is? You just peel off the petals and use as many as you like to make gorgeous flowers! The tape co-ordinates with the Pressed Petals Specialty DSP which is super pretty!

I used 6 petals and stuck them onto a 3/4″ circle. The gold faceted gems make the perfect centre for the flower.

Don’t forget to decorate the inside of the card. This is the second roll of washi tape that comes with the petal roll

These are the supplies that I used for this project.
All the supplies used can be ordered through my online store here.
If you are in Australia and do not already have a Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator, I would be happy to help you with your stamping needs. Ready to enjoy the demonstrator discount? Stampin’ Up! has an extra joining bonus for this month. Contact me for more information.

Daisy Lane

I often have ladies saying to me “I have this stamp set but I haven’t used it because I don’t know what to do with it”.
To get around this problem, I am going to focus on one stamp set every month, and make 4 different projects using that stamp set.

This month I have chosen Daisy Lane from the new catalogue. There is also a new punch (medium daisy) which goes with the stamp set. I have limited myself to three ink colours to use in these cards. I have stepped the cards up a bit and used the foil edged cards and envelopes.

I am going to offer this as a class. The cost will be $80, and with that you will get the Daisy Lane stamp set, medium daisy punch, 2 gold edged cards and 2 silver edged cards and envelopes, 18 gold and 18 clear faceted gems in different sizes and the additional card stock required to complete the cards, and the class will be free.

I will be holding the class on Saturday 30th June, please contact me by the 15th June if you would like to place your order and reserve your place.
If you want to attend the class but don’t want to own the stamp set and punch, you can come to the class. The cost of attending the class will be $30.
If you are unable to attend the class but would like to make the cards, you can order your kit and I will send you the instructions to make the cards (additional postage may apply).

Items not included in the kit which you will need if you don’t come to class are: Garden Green, Grapefruit Grove and Lovely Lipstick ink pads, blocks to mount the stamps and adhesive. If you need these items I can give you a price to include them in your kit.

I am sure that you will all love this stamp set as much as I do, so contact me as soon as you can to attend the class
