Global Design Project 084

I thought I would have a play with one of our 2017-2019 In Colours - Lemon Lime Twist for this weeks project.

I have used the Touches of Texture Stamp Set, Thoughtful Banners Stamp Set and the colours Melon Mambo combined with a touch of the new In Colour Lemon Lime Twist for my interpretation of  Michelle's design

Below is a list of the products I have used with links to my online shop. (Just a little sneak peek of Lemon Lime Twist as this colour will not be available until this June.)
Thank you for visiting my blog.

Happy stamping.

Global Design Project #gdp 083

I'm playing along with the Global Design Project #GDP083 and the theme for this week is Sparkles/ Bling.
As soon as I saw the theme Sparkles/Bling I immediately thought Yay! a chance to use the stamp set 'Ribbon of Courage' I won in Prize Patrol at Onstage with some product I was able to preorder from our upcoming 2017-2018 Annual catalogue.

Global Design Project 083 | Theme Challenge

For my card I have used the stamp sets Ribbon of Courage and Label Me Pretty, the new punch called the Pretty Label Punch and a must was the new 'In Colour' Powder Pink cardstock, ink and the very pretty new Fresh Florals Designer Series Paper Stack.

My card has been inspired by a very close relative and some treasured friends who have had to face a diagnosis of Breast Cancer. It is only due to early detection on their behalf and their courage that I am lucky enough to still have them as part of my life. I have included a link for the convenience of those who are unsure of how to perform a self breast examination in the hope that it may save either your life or the life of somebody near and dear to you.

The products I have shown above will not be available for purchase until June 1st 2017 with the release of the new annual catalogue. I have added the other products used in this card below which are now available in my online store.

Thank you for coming to visit my blog and happy stamping!

Stampin' Up! Onstage Local 2017: Sydney

Hello and thank you for visiting my blog. Even though Onstage Local: Sydney 2017 was held well over a week ago I am still reeling from the excitement of this amazing event. Luna Park on Sydney Harbour it was such a fun venue, with magnificent views of not only the harbour itself but our iconic Opera House & the Sydney Harbour Bridge.
I spent the day with Denita, my team member being amazed by the many talented presenters, we poured over our copies of the new catalogue, played with some new products and chatted to lots of the lovely people involved with Stampin' Up!

Below are photos of the mini explosion boxes I created as swaps for the event. I have been asked for the recipe so I have included instructions also.

You will need:
Cardstock colour of choice 14.85 cm x 14.85 cm for box bottom
Whisper White cardstock 9.2 cm x 9.2 cm for box lid
Coordinating DSP 4.5 cm x 4.5 cm x 5
Whisper White cardstock 4.5 cm x 4.5 cm x 1
1 piece of Whisper White cardstock for paper lace insert
Bloomin' Heart Thinlits

Score and burnish coloured cardstock square at 5cm on all four sides
Cut diagonally across outside corners and fold over opposite corners to meet in centre
Remove the remaining triangles
Cut 2 DSP squares in half corner to corner
Glue DSP to inner sides of box bottom
Secure folded triangle with a fine line of Tombow adhesive
For lid score and burnish Whisper White square at 2cm on all four sides
Snip corners to form a tab, fold and glue each corner tab inwards to form box lid
I used the Elegant Butterfly punch and the Pansy punch  to cut shapes in the centre of the 4.5 cm x 4.5 cm Whisper White cardstock
I trimmed a piece of paper lace I had cut with the Bloomin' Heart Thinlits and glued it under the punched out area on the Whisper White square. I then adhered it to the top of the box.
The flowers on the Ferrero Roche chocolates were punched with the Tree Builder punch with a spot of Wink of Stella to add some bling. I have added a product list for you below which will take you straight to my online store.

I am now looking forward to planning my first projects with the new products. Attendees of Onstage are able to order extra early so I have a few goodies already.
 I love being a Stampin' Up! demonstrator! Why not join us!

Happy Stamping!
