Retriform Technique

All you need is some Post-it-Notes and Stampin' Up! Sponges and Ink Pads to create all sorts of different patterns and effects.

Here's two cards I've made. For the 3rd card, head over to my FaceBook Page here Join me on Facebook

My Style Info

  • For this first card I wanted a more lighter and open stamped design than my second card below, where I've gone with darker shading and fuller stamped design.
  • I've left the cards fairly unadorned because I didn't want to cover the Technique up.

  • I love the different effects you can create with this Technique.
  • Add some Sparkle to the Greeting with Stampin' Up!'s beautiful fine Glitter.
  • Gold Cording gives a little bit of Glamour!

  • This Technique would be great for a Scrapebook Page too!

Shaving Cream Technique

Such a fun technique! You only need cheap Shaving Cream and Stampin' Up! Re-Inkers.

You can create lots of different patterns. We did this card in one of my Card Making Classes and the different patterns and colours my ladies achieved were terrific! And we all used the same ink colours, yet each colour combo came out differently!

Click Here to View Stampin' Up! 2015 Holiday Catalogue
   

Here's my first Card I created with some of the gorgeous new products from the Holiday Catalogue. 


My Style Info

One of the most common questions I get asked at my Catalogue Launch Parties, (and generally for that matter), is 'How do I decide on what to buy?'

My answer is:
  • I go for products that I love! That way I know I'll get lots of use out of them!
  •  I go for products that are versatile and that I can mix and match to extend their usage. 
  •  I go for Bundles to save dollars, but only if I love it! 

Over the next few days I will add products that are my 'Absolute Favourites' from the 2015 Stampin' Up! Holiday Catalogue to hopefully inspire and help you in your own decision making. So Stay Tuned!!!
