A little tease

My new stamp platform arrived today and I have been playing. OMG, not only is it the perfect size for a desk to just sit on there to be used. But stampin multiple images, multiple step stamps, and just stamping onto a page is just so easy....

I just love it...

 

Casing Thursday - 2015

Today we are going to create a masculine card…

While a lot of people struggle with masculine themed cards, Stampin’ Up! has made it real easy to create such wonderful projects. Stampin’ Up! has a suite called True Gentleman this is located on page 44-45 of the Occasions catalogue 2018 (Spring/Summer). Here is the link to the suite online, I just love how this is very classic. With colours like Chocolate Chip, Crumb Cake, Crushed Curry, Night of Navy, Tranquil Tide, and Very Vanilla, matching to Neutrals and Regals are just so easy.

My personal thoughts about masculine themed is to keep it simple, keep embellishments to a minimum. Some thing that I really like is how the punch and stamp set match and you can save 10% if you purchase the bundle (Click here)

So, I had a poll on my personal Facebook page and asked if we wanted butterfly’s or bow ties, and you guessed it, bow ties won.

Today’s inspiration is from the Occasions Catalogue 6 Jan-2 Jun (Click here to have a look), on page 12 there is a Happy Birthday card with 3 bows’. However, I wanted to create a masculine card, so I took the punch as in the video below and created some bow ties.

Final thoughts please don’t forget that it is Sale-A-Bration, and it is a great time to either join my team and get almost $500NZD worth of product for only $189NZD and you can simply maintain your account or even let it lapse. I have no issues either way, or if you wish to just purchase products please use Andre Gordon (Me) as your demonstrator. the Host code is NWKJEY9M this month, please make sure that you use this as you will receive a portion of the rewards early next month.

Emboss resist

Hi everyone, hope all is well with you,

Todays technique is Emboss Resist, this is when once you have laid down colour you then stamp in versamark ink, then cover your paper with a dark colour in this case black. Once you have done this you then simply buff off the extra ink to reveal your embossing.

 Don’t forget that SAB is still going so you have time to still earn free product, I have just placed my last order for this quarter and will receive the last of my free SAB items by the end of the week. So watch out next week when I will be showing you some amazing projects with those.

I did and edit some of it, but alas I still have some learning to do, thus it is not done. 

Please head over to Stamin' Up! and have look, and remember to choose me as your demostrator. 

Here is today video below

Casing Thursday 2007-2008

Welcome to casing Thursday, today we travel all the way to the 2007-2008 brochure page 36.

 I just the tulips and how it was laid out, now remembering the rules for this, I decided to use the host set called Tranquil tulips. The only way to receive this set free is to place a $300NZD order either by your self or with friends. This is one of the host sets that I just love, and it was one of the free stamp sets that I just had to have in my collection. Remember we are coming up to a new Annual Catalogue in a couple of months so you better be in quick as we have no idea what is going to be kept and what is going to be retired.

If you would like to order from me, please use the host code: 43FYU43T and all the rewards will be split between all those who order.

As always, I have attached the video below with a list of products that I have used to create this wonderful card.

Technique Tuesday - Big Shot

Welcome to my second Technique Tuesday,

In todays blog I will be showing you how to use the big shot, like to big shot?

Did you know that you can get this much cheaper if you decide to join my team? Click here for more information.

 

Well until the 31 March 2018 you can get a great deal.

FIRST: Choose $285 In Stampin' Up! Products For Just $189!

SECOND: Choose TWO Additional FREE Stamp Sets*-- That's Up To A $210 Value in addition to the $285 worth of products.

Total value = $495 NZD worth of product for only $189NZD and you get free postage!!

 

Your Kit could look like this.

Big shot (143263) - $190NZD

Plus $95NZD worth of product to make up your $285NZD (I bet you already have some dies)

Choose your two free stamp sets – I suggest the most expensive one’s

Plus you will start earning a discount on all your product that you purchase ongoing though your own store.

 

So what is stopping you??

  1. I don’t want to sell
  2. I don’t want to make video’s or blogs
  3. I’m not business minded
  4. I don’t know where to start
  5. The quarterly minimum’s (yes, we have minimum’s, I won’t lie)

 

Remember I am only a hobby crafter, and I do not do this for a business, I am doing this as I have a passion to teach and craft for myself. I can also help you to start a business if this is what you want to do, and I can help you with both online parties and face to face parties if you want.

Or simply help you with your orders over the quarter to meet your minimum’s, which is actually very simple.

Anyway, todays video is all how to use the big shot and to use it, why it is better than the Cuttlebug (Yes, I started out with one of these).

If you wish to purchase any products please use this link and seach for Andre Gordon and don't forget to use the host code: 43FYU43T and all rewards will go back to you and everyone else that purchases product though me, this will be sent out early the following month.
