You will then be entitled to hostess benefits depending on your order total (min sales $300)

Thank you to all for a great launch party!

We had such fun today at the new catalogue launch. There were make and takes, a design challenge, a mystery door prize and goody bags for everyone. The weather was perfect for crafting. Rain, rain, and more rain :)
The new catalogue is gorgeous, and I had some sneak peeks to show to our crafters. I'm loving the washi tape! I have made several cards using just washi and a stamp and they go together so fast. I think these tapes will be my new go-to item.
My big de-stash sale will continue until Tuesday's class so if you couldn't make it today and would still like to come find a bargain there will be more on sale.
Happy crafting!

Stampin' Up! Australia - By The Tide Masculine Card

My friend Rob is having a birthday today, and he loves to do a bit of diving, so the "By The Tide" stamp set was the ideal choice. It was super fast to put together, using Marina Mist as the card base, with a Whisper White piece for the focal image. I stamped another fish in Marina Mist inside the card on the bottom right hand corner, then I added 2 tiny rhinestones for the eyes, and they look cute and fishy!
Here's your shopping list:
Inkpads: Marina Mist # 126962
                      Summer Starfruit # 126991
Cardstock: Marina Mist #121682
                     Whisper White #106549
Snail Adhesive #104332
Rhinestone basic jewels # 119246
Stamp Set: By The Tide # 129120 Clear Mount
                                        # 129117 Wood Mount

You can purchase all these items from my online store.

 If you’d like any of the supplies, or to get a catalogue, please feel free to contact me, and of course you can shop online with Stampin’ Up! directly through me by clicking the ‘shop online’ button above right.
If you live in Australia and you’re thinking of joining Stampin’ Up! and want to join my team of Aussie Stampers I’d most definitely like to hear from you!

Stampin' Up! Australia - Our Stamp -A-Stack Class.

These were the cards we put together in our Stamp-A-Stack Class. I have to admit, this is my favourite all-time stamp set and punch combo.
The colours for the cardstock were Daffodil delight, Pumpkin Pie, Rich Razzleberry, Tempting Turquoise, Gumball Green and Real Red, all stamped onto Whisper White. We stamped the envelopes as well.
Additional punches: Bird builder and Blossom builder for the leaves. The sentiments are from Word Play: a retiring stamp set. Get it while you can! Visit my online store to view the full retirement list.

Free Mixed Media Art Journal Tutorials

Here is the first mixed media art journal page using all Stampin' Up! products. This form of art journal is much less messy than using gesso and paint, and comes together much faster. I also show you how to draw a whimsical portrait using Stampin' Up! markers and watercolor paper.

 
 
This next page uses traditional stamped embossed images, markers and washi tape. I hope you give these both a try.
