Stamp Review Crew - Bubble Over

Welcome back to another Stamp Review Crew blog hop. The Stamp Review Crew is a group of Stampin' Up! demonstrators from around the world that get together on the 1st and 3rd Monday of each month for a blog hop. Each hop we showcase one stamp set and show you just how much you can do with it. Get ready for lots of inspiration and lots of reasons to use (or buy😊) this stamp set! Currently you are visiting Lou Kitzelman on the Sunshine Coast, Australia. Hi!

For this hop we are featuring Bubble Over.

This is such a fun bundle. Both the stamp set and thinlits have so much to offer. I love the labels and decided to feature them on my cards.

I've used the smaller label die to cut out a window and both to make this delicate frame. If you want to make one at home, die cut the smaller one first then add the larger one around the 'hole' created. I'd also missed this cute 'For You' stamp and matching die. Adorable!

To make it look like there was liquid in the bottle, I inked the stamp and then grabbed a piece of paper towel (because it was closest) and dabbed off some ink from the neck of the bottle.

Then it all got raised with foam adhesive strips. Everything looks better jacked up on foam adhesive strips I think! Do you?

For the inside I added the sentiment and some bubbles floating up. I love how this gorgeous sheet of DSP from the Eastern Palace pack shines. You have to love it when the paper does all the work!

I was really happy with this layout so thought I would try it using a different label to make the cut out and frame. I really do love Lemon Lime Twist teamed with black.

The label on the bottle has a tiny die that you can add to it to cut out the little handles. Such a versatile little piece!

And the inside got a bottle cap - because it was lying on my craft desk forlornly begging to be used!

Make sure you hop around to see what all the crew have done with this gorgeous stamp set. Next up is the super creative Tanya Boser. She works so hard organising our hops behind the scenes. I can't wait to see what she comes up with each time. I love how her mind works!

Online card making and stamping classes for beginning and novice stampers - video one launched today!

Hi Everyone. Happy Saturday!

Just a quick post to let you know that my new online class modules that I am running with my talented friend Kelly Kent are ready for launch! Our first module for Stamp In Confidence - Module One - Stamping Basics is all finished. We are kicking off at 6 pm Queensland time (AEST) today with the first video in the module, with the rest rolling out each day after that. Check out the launch time in your area here.

We've been working really hard on this module and have 6 videos - 4 information and 2 tutorials - plus written material to support them. So much is packed into this module - all for $6 AUD. Plus you get to interact with others learning the same content as you in a private Facebook group.

In Module One we share with you the basic products, materials and skills you need for basic stamping and card making.

This is just like a class - except you get to watch it in the comfort of your own home at a time that suits you. You can create along with us, pause and re-watch the videos. Oh and did I mention that this online class module is packed with content? If you haven't registered yet, head over to the Online Class Modules page. You'll find all the information you need here so you can be registered and ready to watch and learn.

It is a great way to get started in card making and stamping. No experience required!

I am so exciting about this new venture. There is something special about teaching someone how to make a fabulous card and seeing the look of pride and excitement on their face. I hope you can join us in this program. If you know anyone who you think would be interested in our modules please feel free to pass on this information.

Just Add Ink #400 - Just Add Inspiration

Welcome Just Add Ink's 400th challenge! What an amazing achievement! I am so happy to be part of this amazing group of talented people. There are some amazing prizes up for grabs to celebrate our 400th challenge so make sure you head on over the the Just Add Ink page to check them out.

This week we have an inspiration picture to help spark your creative juices.

I was inspired by the colours and shapes .... plus it gave me the perfect opportunity to get my Apron of Love bundle inky. I am ashamed to say this is it's first time out of the packet. So little time!

I used the tiny circle stamp from the Text Ya Later stamp set to create this polka dot apron. I gave them a glossy finish by stamping in Versamark and heat embossing in clear.

How have I left it so long to use this bundle???? I can't wait to get some time to create lots more aprons in trendy designs.

The pocket has a double stack of dimensionals under the middle and glue dots around the edges to give it the 3D effect.

Make sure you pop on over to the Just Add Ink page to see how all the other Design Team members were inspired by this great pic. Why not enter your own creation? We always love seeing them!
