{Sew Proud of You} CASE Study Challenge #43


It is so cold here in Sydney today, normally I like the cool weather however I am a little over it and looking forward to it warming up a little….just a little. Thursday brings a new CASE Study card from June’s muse Jill Foster, which you can see below:


Here is my spin on Jill’s amazing work of art, I have taken elements from Jill’s layout but flipped sides, I loved the circle coming off the edge of the card and the stitching around the edge of the card.


I made this card from my wonderful mum, who joined my Stampin’ Up! team a few months ago and is just doing so well. Mum is also like my “stunt” double as she fill in for me in I am unable to do a class or workshop, like the sweet thing needed to do last week as I quite sick but had “events” booked so I got everything ready and then she would go and do the “event” for me, it all worked fine until Saturday’s workshop rolled around and I packed her up with everything she needed BUT she left the stamps at home! OH no and it was a workshop on the other side of Sydney! If it was me I would FREAK out and maybe even cry! Not her, she just carmly re-designed the cards using stamps the hostess had….talk about thinking on your feet and still had a GREAT workshop. So I had to make her a card telling her how proud of her I am.


SEW I hope you liked my card, I would love to here your stories about leaving something like this at home and what did you do to fix it.

Butterfly Bow {Workshop Wow Card 1}


As promised here is the start of the cards I showed at Stampin’ Up! Convention in Melbourne last week. This card I showed how I cut my wide striped Grosgrain ribbon down and melt the edges with my lighter so they do not fray then showed how I tie my bow. You can view the video here.

I love the colours in this card, for the background I have clear embossed the Medallion on Autumn Spice DSP from the Summer Mini then brayered over the top with Pear Pizzazz ink to make the embossing pop a little. Along the bottom is just Rich Razzleberry cardstock that I have clear embossed with the blossoms stamp from Elements of Style then stamped a little script from “French Foliage” in Early Espresso. I have used Stampin’ Up! Watercolour paper cut out with the Sizzix Beautiful Butterflies die, I again used the blossom stamp from Elements of Style with Rich Razzleberry and Old Olive Markers to colour the flowers and leafs then I water coloured lightly with Watercolour Wonder Crayons. I like adding a little vintage feel by stamping the script and ink splat from “French Foliage” and sponging with Tea ink from the SU! Distressing Essentials kit.
