More Projects from the Southern Highlands Card Making Day

The first project I’d like to share with you today is a delightful card provided by fellow Avid Inker, Frances Searle. The card would be suitable for a new baby or a baby birthday. It could even be used for Mother’s Day.

The Wildly Happy Stamp set is a lovely line art set of mother and baby animals. Colours are Whisper White and Mint Macaron, with a hint of Gray Granite in the shading.

In the sample card, Frances also coloured the dots in the Tufted 3D Embossing Folder and the Polka Dots in the ribbon using a Mint Macaron Blend pen.

Whisper White ink was sponged onto the embossed petals of the magnolia. The bud was stamped, coloured, diecut and Wink of Stella’d before being tucked behind the ribbon and the label. The inside of the card was stamped too with Calypso Coral and diecut. Such a simple but beautiful card.

Roz Butterworth provided the kit for this card. To a Wild Rose is the two-step stamp set we used. The base is Melon Mambo and the flower was stamped (second generation stamp) in Rococo Rose, Melon Mambo and Early Espresso, with the leaves in Granny Apple Green. The background was splattered with Rococo Rose and a few gold metallic pearls finished off this gorgeous card.

Michele Jutrisa, our gracious host for the day, provided this cute scissor charm kit for us. We used the Free as a Bird stamp Set, stamping the wooden button in Stazon Jet Black Ink. When dry, the image was coloured with Pacific Point, Calypso Coral, Blushing Bride, Melon Mambo, Pool Party, Old Olive, Crumb Cake and Soft Suede markers, then clear embossed using a heat gun. This is such a CUTE charm, I love it.

Southern Highlands Cardmaking Day

Two weeks ago I travelled with 2 members of my Stampin’ Up! downline group (Avid Inkers) to Mittagong to share a day of cardmaking with 13 other Stampin’ Up! demonstrators from surrounding regions. They came from Canberra, Southern Highlands, Wollongong, South Coast, Western Sydney and even the Hunter Valley. The day was organised by Michele Jutrisa, and she did an amazing job. The theme for the day was the 2019-20 Annual Catalogue. It was held at the hall St Stephen’s Church where Michele is a parishioner.

GoodyBagStampinUpAnnetteMcMillan10082019

On arrival we each received a goody bag. Michele did a lovely job of decorating them using the Beautiful Friendship stamp set and the 2019-20 In-Colors, some sweet DSP and polka dot ribbon. The greeting comes from the Free as a Bird Stamp Set. Here is a closer look.

GoodyBagTagStampinUpAnnetteMcMillan10082019

Each attendee also received a decorated water bottle. Decoration was done by yours truly, using 2019-21 In-Colors, Free as a Bird stamp set, the Lace Dynamic Embossing Folder and Stitched Nesting Labels Dies. I used these dies to create a pocket shape into which I slid a name tag for each attendee.

The one below was mine. It is Rococo Rose, Crumb Cake and Rich Razzleberry.

FreeAsABirdBottleBandStampinUpAnnetteMcMillan10082019

The aim of the day was simply for us to get to know each other and have fun. Well , I think we achieved both. Each attendee prepared 16 kits of the same project for each of the attendees to make and brought all the supplies needed to make it in a shoebox or similar container.

Michele put together a folder containing all the Instruction Sheets. She decorated them to match the goody bags and stamped the SU Statement of the Heart on them as well. Aren’t they gorgeous?

Our goody bags also contained a new stamp set and a Mystery Bag Challenge!

I showed my card in a previous post here and the one made by my friend Vicki here.

Unfortunately, I didn’t get photos of anyone else’s or of the ladies themselves, which is a bit of a shame because they were all lovely. Donna Williams from the Stampin’ Up! Office also attended and brought a make n take for us. She was lots of fun and very generous with her time, answering any queries we had about products or current events.

Well, that’s it from me for now.

I’ll be back soon to show you the projects we made.

Southern Highlands Cardmaking Day

Welcome to my blog.

Yesterday I had a fun day with two fellow Avid Inkers and other Stampin’ Up! Demonstrators from the surrounding region. There were 16 of us in all and the day was wonderfully put together by Michele Jutrisa at St Stephen’s Church Hall in Mittagong.

It was a day for us to get together and have fun. We had Donna Williams (from Stampin’ Up! join us for the early part of the day, and lunch) and the lovely Cathy from the Church kept us well fed and lubricated. Others came from Jervis Bay, Windsor, Campbelltown and even the Hunter Valley.

I wanted to share with you the card I made as part of a challenge. We were each given A5 pieces of cardstock in Whisper White, Basic Black and 3 other colours, 1/4 piece of See a Silhouette DSP, some ribbon, and Epoxy Droplets. The challenge was to come up with a card. Below is the one I made.

EverythingAmazingCard1StampinUpAnnetteMcMillan28072019

I used Night of Navy, Crushed Curry and Whisper White Card and the DSP. I also used the Tailored Tag Punch which I had on hand.

EverythingAmazingCardStampinUpAnnetteMcMillan28072019

I decided to make a Bridge Card and although the photo at left is not great, you can see that I lined the back panel with the DSP and stuck a couple of punched out pieces across the opening. The card will still fold flat for posting.

I was quite happy with the resulting card. We each had to place a sticker on the card we liked the best and 3 winners were selected. Sadly, mine wasn’t one of them! But I got over it. Unfortunately, I didn’t get photos of the others, but I will ask Vicki for a pic of hers, and she was one of the winners! I will post it in the next few days.

I am sure I will be posting more in coming days, so stay tuned.

That’s it for now, thanks for popping by………………………………….till next time,
