    Freshly Brewed New In Colors

    Good Afternoon and welcome to another Freshly Brewed Projects Blog Hop with the Latte Girls. This week we are creating projects made with the gorgeous New In Colors coming in June.

    Freshly Brewed Projects with the Latte Girls

    New In Colors

    I am loving the New In Colors coming in June! Usually I love one or two and the others grow on me but not this year! I actually love them all!

    New In Colors from Stampin' Up!

    They are a bit pretty aren’t they? I’ll be offering a New In Color Share, Bundle and Club so be sure you are registered for my Newsletter so you get all the details!

    Here’s what I have created for you today using the New In Colors ..

    A Touch of Lace with the New In Colors by Leonie Schroder Independent Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Australia

    I was a little at a loss on what to do until I decided to look at what I’d got in the PreOrder and the Stitched Lace Die just jumped out at me! I am actually in love! This die is awesome! You can do full panels, like I’ve done today, half panels or even a gorgeous lacy border!

    I took a Terracotta Tile Base Card and attached my Stitched Lace panel in Very Vanilla. Cut a strip of the Terracotta Scalloped Linen Ribbon (this ribbon comes in all the new In Colors!) Stamped my sentiment from the A Little Lace Stamp Set in Terracotta onto a Vanilla Strip and trimmed with the scissors.

    A Touch of Lace with the New In Colors by Leonie Schroder Independent Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Australia

    I then cut the little flowers from the remaining in colours. This little flower is a die from the Budding Blooms Dies – another new Die pack coming in the new Annual Catalogue in June. These were affixed with a glue dot and each decorated with a small Pearl.

    Now you might like to check out this morning’s Facebook Live Video where I show a couple of tips using the Stitched Lace Dies.

    Start from 15:45 for the Stitched Lace Demonstration and Tips. It’s quite an easy card to make once you have your lace cut out.

    Remember, all die cutting machines are different and have different tension and such. You may need some adjusting to the shim depending on your machine. You may find you dont need any adjusting at all!

    Let’s go hopping …

    Now it’s time to hop around and see what the other Latte Girls have made for you today using the new In Colors …

    I do hope you enjoyed the projects included in today’s Blog Hop. Leave a comment for the girls and let them know you stopped by.

    Bloom by Bloom Moments Card by Leonie Schroder Independent Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Australia

    Bloom by Bloom

    Good Afternoon! It’s a bright sunny Autumn Day here today. It actually a little more like Spring than Autumn! So thought I’d share a bright ‘springy’ card using the retiring Bloom by Bloom Stamp Set.

    Bloom Moments Card by Leonie Schroder Independent Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Australia

    Bloom by Bloom

    When I first saw this Stamp Set it didnt really grab me but being part of an early Pre-Order I opted to get it. I am so glad I did! It’s a wonderful stamp set with bold and dainty blooms. There’s a couple of images for adding a few different effects as well.

    There’s a whole suite of products you can get to compliment this lovely stamp set …

    Happiness Blooms Suite

    All of the above products will be retiring on 3rd June so if there is anything here you’d like it’s best to get your order in as soon as possible and before 3rd June! Simply click on the item above to start shopping online or contact me with your order.

    Bloom Moments Card by Leonie Schroder Independent Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Australia

    This was fun to make and the girls enjoyed making it at the Stamp A Stack last weekend.

    Card Tips …

    • Cut out your Circle and Scalloped Circle pieces and trace around the white circle on your white layer. This will be your guide as to where to stamp your Blooms.
    • Use the Detailed Trio Punch to round two opposite corners for the unique shaped layers.
    • Add rhinestones to the centres of your smaller flowers for a little sparkle.
    • Test your inked stamps on a scrap piece of paper first. This way you’ll know how intense the colour is and you can stamp it off for a softer look if desired.

    I do hope you liked today’s card. It fits with the feel of Spring today dont you think?

    Golden Afternoon by Leonie Schroder Independent Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Australia

    Golden Afternoon

    Good [Golden] Afternoon! It’s a very lovely sunny Autumn day here today! Makes you want to sit outside and soak up the Vitamin D! Today I have a sweet card for you using the lovely Golden Afternoon Stamp Set from the Occasions Catalogue.

    Golden Afternoon

    This is such a lovely Stamp Set and as soon as I saw it I knew I had to have it! It’s got two trees in it – what else needs to be said? It also helps it has some really lovely sentiments in it as well!

    I do love a good tree stamp set and I’m a little sad that this one isn’t carrying over into the new Annual Catalogue.

    Today’s card is one I made a while back but never shared here and we’ll also be making it in today’s Stamp A Stack

    My card base is Soft Sea Foam. I created a little frame in Gray Granite using the awesome Rectangle Stitched Framelits.

    I stamped the smaller tree and sentiment onto Very Vanilla in Memento Tuxedo Black. I then coloured the Tree with Stampin’ Blends . I also used Light Pool Party Stampin Blend to outline the leaves and then blended the edges out with the Colour Lifter.

    Once done I’ve cut the vanilla piece with the next smaller sized Rectangle Stitched Framelit so it fit snuggly into the frame I cut. It makes it look like a framed picture!

    I stamped the birds in flight in Soft Sea Foam on the card base so it looks like they are in the distance. The larger tree was also stamped in Soft Sea Foam so it peaks out from behind the frame. Stamping behind your focal piece in a lighter colour gives the card depth and dimension.

    If you’d like the Golden Afternoon Stamp Set it is available until 3rd June or while stocks last. It is still available at the moment (as I type) but this could change at any time!

    Brusho Resist with Lovely as a Tree by Leonie Schroder Independent Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Australia

    Farewell Lovely as a Tree

    Good Afternoon! Well the time has come … to say farewell to our longest serving Stamp Set – Lovely as a Tree!

    Lovely as a Tree

    For years we’ve joked about the sets the carry over into a new catalogue and Lovely as a Tree is one of those sets! The usual comment would be “looks like Lovely as a Tree has made it again”. However the time has come to retire this wonderful Stamp Set.

    It’s been a staple since Stampin’ Up! started here in Australia in 2006! It’s my last remaining set still in its original Clamshell Case. It’s shared many Christmases, Father’s Days and Birthdays with us. It’s been a ‘go-to’ when needing a Masculine card.

    I described it to a dear Demonstrator friend when making today’s cards as “it’s like the last original cast member of your favourite long-running TV show leaves the show!”

    It got to be rather emotional making these cards I’m sharing today.

    Not only are we saying goodbye to Lovely as a Tree but also to the Brusho powders …

    Brusho Resist with Lovely as a Tree by Leonie Schroder Independent Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Australia

    I really had lots of fun (and messy fun at that) in making these cards.

    Brusho Resist Technique

    1. Heat Emboss the trees onto Watercolor Paper using Versamark, White Embossing powder and your Heat Tool.
    2. Allow to cool. Spritz with water till water pools. Sprinkle Brusho powder over water pools and let it do it’s magic. Tilt cardstock to let colours blend.
    3. Leave to dry or dry with Heat Tool

    Remember, when using Brusho that ‘less is more’. You can always add more powder if you desire but it’s very hard to take it away and when using more than one colour it can get ‘muddy’ if you use too much powder.

    My first card I used just the Blue powder and this second card I’ve used Orange and Red powders.

    Brusho Resist with Lovely as a Tree by Leonie Schroder Independent Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Australia

    If you use the Heat Tool to dry your brusho/water you can manouvre the water to keep it intense in some areas and lighter in others.

    Now you might wonder why I didnt just do the Brusho on the Watercolor Paper first then just Stamp and Emboss over the top. I did it this way so that the crystals and some of the colour will stay inside the embossed sections of the image.

    You can get a cool Mosaic type look when doing it the way I did like this piece …

    Brusho Resist with Lovely as a Tree by Leonie Schroder Independent Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Australia

    If you look closely at this panel you can see that some sections are the red where some are blue and some are varying shades of those colours.

    Once your panel is done it’s easy to add a moon using a dauber and Whisper White Craft Ink. I did punch a circle from a piece of Post-It so my moon was nice and round!

    FYI: I specifically left the sentiments off these cards to show the full effect of the the Brusho Resist Technique.

    I will be sad to see the Brusho Powders retire. However we have our very own Watercolor Pigment Sprinkles coming in the new catalogue! They’ve been developed by Stampin’ Up! and in our own colours! So that’s exciting!

    Do you have your Catalogue yet?

    The new Annual Catalogue is just weeks away from launching! Do you have your copy yet?

    Scrapbooking Global Masculine Blog Hop

    Good Afternoon! Wow three Blog Hops in a row! Today I’m participating in the Scrapbooking Global Masculine Blog Hop!

    You may also have noticed that this is my second Scrapbook Layout in two days as well!

    Scrapbooking Global Masculine Blog Hop

    Today’s layout is one I created at one of my recent Scrap A Latte Crop Nights – it’s a new event I’m now hosting on the 2nd Friday of each month!

    On a previous visit of my Brother to my Dad’s place in Victoria he shared a couple of photo’s on Facebook of himself and Dad at Dad’s favourite coffee shop in Camperdown – The Loaf and Lounge. I promptly saved those pics from Facebook to use on a layout.

    I’ve framed one which I’ll take to Dad’s next time I’m down there and figured I may just have to find another frame for the Big Brother for his Birthday or House Warming Present!

    Here’s my Layout …

    Now I know some of my Australian friends may get a giggle from the title on my page. We had an old radio comedy here that was called Dad & Dave from the 1930’s so you can imagine how corny it must sound now. You can read more about it here

    For my layout I wanted it more about the pictures and the look they both give each other when the other isnt looking at them. Such love and admiration a Father and Son can have.

    My background paper comes from the Floral Romance Specialty Designer Series Paper Pack. It may sound odd for a sheet from a ‘romance’ pack for a Masculine layout but the wood grain paper worked perfectly.

    I then used the Artisan Textures Stamp Set to create some interest and ‘texture’ behind the photo’s

    I added a strip of darker wood grain paper as a trim and to position my letters on. This paper comes from the Nature’s Poem Designer Series Paper Pack. The letters were stamped using the Letters for You Photopolymer Stamp Set and Stamped in Gray Granite and then die cut using the Large Letters Framelit Dies. I finished them off by adding some mini silver brads to each end of the strip.

    These are all awesome products to have for your Scrapbooking and Crafting needs. You will need to purchase them this month as they will all retire on 2nd June.

    I do hope you like today’s Layout. It was fun and easy to make and while some scrappers fill their pages with embellishments and layers, and there is nothing wrong with that, I tend to have mine more simpler and more about the photo’s.

    Let’s go Hopping …

    The next blog on the hop today is Sara Levin’s Blog

    Here’s a complete list of all the Scrapbooking Global Blog Hoppers today …

    Thanks so much for stopping by and please be sure to leave a comment for all the Scrapbookers in today’s Blog Hop so they know you’ve stopped by.

    Happiness Blooms 12x12 Layout by Leonie Schroder Independent Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Australia

    Retiring Designer Series Paper Packs

    Good Afternoon and welcome to another Freshly Brewed Projects Blog Hop with the Latte Girls. This week we are creating projects made with the gorgeous New In Colors coming in June.

    Freshly Brewed Projects with the Latte Girls

    Retiring Designer Series Paper Pack

    There’s been lots of excitement recently with news and sneak peeks of the new Annual Catalogue. Now it is exciting when we have new products to play with and share however this also means some of our favourites will be retiring. Awww! Today the Latte Girls are sharing ways to use their favourite Retiring Designer Series Paper Packs.

    The pack I’m using today is the lovely Happiness Blooms Designer Series Paper pack from the Occasions Catalogue.

    Happiness Blooms DSP

    Today’s project is a 12×12 Layout designed for my Happiness Blooms Stamp Camp which was held last Saturday. My Stamp Camps are a full day class where we make oodles of projects and it also includes Lunch and Afternoon Tea. The projects we make in a Stamp Camp are usually cards, framed items, gift boxes and gift bags. I thought this time I’d throw a little curve ball and include a 12×12 Layout.

    I keep telling myself I need to do more scrapbooking and this was a way of introducing it into a class. Even those who dont normally scrapbook can still do a 12×12 Layout and have it framed to display on a wall or give it as a gift.

    I did have one lady adamant that she didnt, or wasnt, going to make it. In the end she did complete her page. I even printed a photo from her phone on my printer for her to pop on the layout. She was rather happy with how it turned out. So that was a bonus!

    Here’s my layout they copied …

    At the Stamp Camp the girls also created 10 other cards using the products in their Stamp Camp Kit.

    The Stamp Camp Kit included …

    • 6 sheets 12×12 Happiness Blooms Designer Series Paper,
    • 12×12 Whisper White,
    • 12×12 Sleeve,
    • 12×12 Memories & More Pocket Sleeve,
    • Memories and More Card Pack,
    • 10 Memories and More Notecards and envelopes.
    • 6 sheets of A4 cardstock from the Happiness Blooms A4 Cardstock Pack
    • 1/2 pack Happiness Blooms Enamel Dots

    In all the day is great value with all that product to use and take home plus lunch and Afternoon Tea! Keep an eye out for my next Stamp Camp in July!

    Let’s go hopping …

    Now it’s time to hop around and see what the other Latte Girls have made for you today using the new In Colors …

    Kelly’s Birthday Blog Hop

    Good Afternoon … it’s that time of year again … Kelly’s Birthday! What better way to celebrate than to participate in Kelly’s Birthday Blog Hop!

    Kelly’s Birthday Blog Hop

    Kelly is a sweet friend that I’ve met through Stampin’ Up! She’s a Demonstrator in Western Australia and always love catching up with her at Stampin’ Up! Events.

    Funnily enough the theme for today’s Blog Hop is “Birthdays”!

    My card today uses the lovely Climbing Roses Stamp Set and the Rectangle Stitched Framelits.

    I loved making this card. THe roses are Copper Embossed on Shimmery White then watercolored with our Classic Inks and an Aqua Painter.

    I love the Dimension you can get with frames using the Rectangle Stitched Framelits. I slipped a section of the Rose image behind the frame on the top left and popped the whole image at the bottom right. It gives the card more dimension with an inside/outside type frame.

    My card is finished off by adding the sentiment and a sweet little Silver Bakers Twine bow and some Basic Adhesive-backed sequins.

    Let’s go hopping …

    Last Chance Tools

    Good Afternoon and welcome to another Freshly Brewed Projects Blog Hop with the Latte Girls. This week we are creating projects made with the gorgeous New In Colors coming in June.

    Freshly Brewed Projects with the Latte Girls

    I’m not sure if you’ve noticed the tools that will be retiring on 3rd June when the current catalogues finish.

    Last Chance Tools

    There’s been lots of talk about the Big Shot and Stampin Trimmer retiring but have you noticed some of the other tools retiring?

    • Gift Bag Punchboard
    • Envelope Punchboard
    • Paper Piercing Tool
    • Die Brush & Mat
    • various punches (circles, builder, banners and more)

    With so much going it was hard to decide which tool to highlight today. I’ve opted to highlight the Envelope Punchboard as its such a versativle tool. It can do so much more than just envelopes with it!

    For today’s project I’ve created this sweet card using the Envelope Punch board, Stampin’ Trimmer and the lovely Needlepoint Nook Designer Series Papers.

    Retiring Tools Used …


    Here’s my card for today …

    This Spool Card is fun and easy to make and it’s perfect for any stitchers or quilters you know. I love how it looks just like a cotton spool!

    Cotton Spool Card Steps …

    1. Cut a standard Card Base.
    2. Using your Envelope Punchboard line up to the 1 3/8″ mark and punch, You may have to stand to do this as you need to cut through two layers of cardstock. Do this on both sides, top and bottom.
    3. Use your Stampin’ Trimmer to cut on each side between the punches.
    4. Cut a piece of patterned paper 8.5cm x 8.5cm and adhere in centre section. For my American friends measure the width of your card centre and cut a square of DSP that size – approximately 3 7/8″.
    5. Decorate and embellish to your liking!

    All my flowers on the card were fussy cut from the Designer Series Paper pack. It makes for a quick and easy card and I didnt have to think about what colour inks to use!

    I do hope you like my ‘Spool Card’ using some of our Last Chance Tools. I would love to see yours when you make one!

    The Envelope Punch Board is one of those tools that always comes in handy! Whether it to be to make your own envelopes, pocket cards, envelope cards, boxes, pouches or even a Spool Card for your favourite stitcher!

    Simple Stamping Techniques – Easel Card

    Welcome to another Simple Stamping Techniques Blog Hop! This month we are creating Easel Cards.

    Simple Stamping Techniques International Blog Hop

    Easel Cards are one of those extra special cards to make and send and the receiver is always delighted by them! They may look tricky but they really are quite easy to make.

    Easel Cards

    Easel Cards are purely ones that have an extra fold, or two, to allow them to ‘stand up’ and be displayed.

    For this month’s card I’ve used the awesome Classic Garage Suite to make this cool Easel Card ..

    This card was a lot of fun to make and one we made in my Classic Garage Class last weekend. It has a few different elements in the card but still achievement for all levels of stampers and crafters.

    Easel Card – simple steps ..

    1. Cut a piece of A4 in half lengthways. Like you would to create a tall card (105mm x 297mm)
    2. Fold in half and burnish. Fold front in half again and burnish. This becomes your base card.
    3. Cut a piece of the Classic Garage Designer Series Paper Pack (102mm x 144mm) and adhere to ‘inside’ or ‘base’
    4. Next cut a Basic Black Mat 102mm x 102mm and adhere to bottom/right panel of card front.
    5. Cut Vanilla Layer 98mm x 98mm. Use your large cogs die with the embossing mat in your Die Cutting Machine to create the embossed cogs. Stamp oil splatter stamp around edges and cogs embossed image with Gray Granite stamped off. Adhere to basic Black matt.
    6. Cut cogs out in Basic Black and adhere to Patterned Paper Piece at base with mini dimensionals. Adhere Jute Ribbon and Let’s Celebrate You on top of cogs.
    7. Cut more single cogs in Basic Black and adhere randomly to vanilla piece with multipurpose glue.
    8. Stamp All Geared Up on vanilla strip, add some splatters and adhere to top left of vanilla panel.
    9. Stamp Tool Box and Oil can in memento Tuxedo Black Ink and Colour with Stampin Blends. Cut out with dies and adhere to card front.
    10. Admire your work!

    Your card can stand up as designed by propping the front panel behind your black cogs on the inside of card. You can also lay it flat for easy posting to your favourite car nerd!

    I do hope you like this Easel Card and if you have any questions in recreating this card from the steps above please dont hesitate to contact me.
