Tea and Cards

I hoping to make a regular time to go live on my Facebook page, and eventually to link it up to my YouTube channel as well, but one step at a time.

And I’m calling it Tea and Cards. I’m hoping you will make yourself a cup of tea and join me. Here’s what I will be making live on my Facebook business page.

I plan to go Live tomorrow morning, Monday 30th January at 10am Sydney time, for the first of my version of Tea and Cards.
Make yourself a cup of tea (or coffee) and join me for some crafting fun. You can choose to just sit back and watch, or have all your materials ready, and create along with me. Here are the measurements and materials you will need to create this easy fun fold card.
I hope I have the Imperial conversion correct.
The card I am making tomorrow will be in different colours to the one pictured.
I would love to have you join me for some crafting time together.
See you then,
Chris

Stampin’ Up! Abstract Beauty Card

My card today features a new Designer Series Paper called Abstract Beauty, available from 4th January 2022.
I made a similar card during my regular Wednesday morning Facebook Live, however the one I made live, I feel, needs an addition, so I will share that one with you soon. This card is the same layout and the same DSP, so you can get a feel for what I was doing in my facebook live. Or you can watch it here.

The card is very quick and easy to make, it also uses the Stockings Dies, which are unfortunately on the Last Chance list and are half price while stocks last.

The other thing to share with you today is that some of our Basic White items are back in stock, the Thick White Cardstock is now available, and also the White C6 Envelopes, so get in and order yourself some while they are available.

Happy stamping!
Chris


Masculine Monday Intricate Leaves Dies Card

Stampin’ Up!s Intricate Leaves Dies are a definite favourite of mine from the current mini catalogue, and are also on the Last Chance list, so will no longer be available after the 3rd January.

The combination of the Intricate Leaves Dies, with the Cork and the Blackberry Beauty Designer Series Paper, makes for an easy masculine card.
If you would like to order the products to make this card, you can use this link which will take you directly to my projects, where you will find this card. Simply click on the card and all of the products you would need will be listed.
Don’t forget to join me live every Monday morning (Eastern Australian time) on my Facebook page, for Masculine Monday. I am hoping that I might have some new goodies to use by then. Crossing fingers!!
Happy stamping

Stampin’ Up! Color and Contour Sponged Card

My card today features the flower outline stamp from the Stampin’ Up! Color and Contour Stamp Set. The card is quite simple and a great way to introduce beginner stampers to the joy of easy stamping. The white centre panel has been sponged using the Blending Brushes, using Polished Pink, Calypso Coral and Daffodil Delight. You can see the live demonstration of me making this card here.
And don’t forget you can place your order for any of your Stampin’ Up! necessities any time on my online store.

Happy stamping!
Chris
