Dragonfly dreaming...

I know its Christmas but i have received a few christmas presents early this year and just have to share.
We will be launching the new Occasions catalogue in January along with the Saleabration special deals. Let me know if you'd like to be one of the first to receive one of the new seasonal catalogues and SAB brochure too.
I showed you a sneakpeek of this stampset last week, this one shows the framelits that go with it in gold foil and how you can cut them up to fly across your cards.
So, are you excited for Saleabration 2017?
You know the deal... Buy $90 worth of product and get a free stampset, or a free paper pack from the saleabration catalogue.
I've used the new water colour pencils with an aqua painter to blend ... I am still playing with my blending technique.
And heres the christmas projects I've made this week for the music and piano teachers.
Merry Christmas ! Ok off to write a few cards and check off that list :)

ESAD 2017 Occasions Catalogue and Saleabration blog hop

Are you ready for a sneak peek of some amazing gorgeousness that is the Stampin' up! Occasions catalogue? It doesn't actually go live until 4 January 2017 but you can get a sneaky glimpse of what I've been creating with my pre ordered stampin'up! goodies.
This is the ESAD blog hop so at the end of the page you will find a list of other lovely Australian demonstrators who have beautiful products to show you... I can't wait, can you?
Here's my first sneak peek - Dragon flies!!! 
The Dragonfly dreaming stamp is stamped directly in basic black ink on to new Designer series paper (DSP) called "Falling in love". Oh, I am, it is full of photographic images of that bokeh effect when the light creates out of focus patterns in the background! 
And I've stepped it up with a shimmer papered Blushing bride dragon fly thinlets die.
How gorgeous will these look in the sunshine?
But don't forget the negative piece of the die cut. This glimmer paper is too precious to waste.
This time I have stamped the dragonfly image through the cut out on to the DSP.
Look at this one with a bee and a dragonfly hovering over the silver foil doily. You can never have enough bling right? I've painted the bee with my gold wink of stellar pen and placed a sequin on the dragonfly's body. Ooooh, the things I want to do with this stamp!
As soon as I saw this stamp I wanted to put it on velum. And it looks great over the new "Cupcakes and carousels" DSP stack. 
And then, I thought to colour the back of the velum with our new... Watercolour pencils!
Burmuda bay and Pacific Point go together perfectly.
So there's your lot of sneak peaks from Stamping Joy, now pop on over to Rachael Lewsley's blog for some more creativity and start your New Year's wish list now.

ESAD 2016 holiday catalogue Favourite Products blog hop

Welcome to the Holiday Catalogue "Favourite Products" Blog hop!
The holiday catalogue has been live for a while now, and I have a lot of favourite stamp sets and tools and accessories, it is really hard to choose just one!!!!!
Can I narrow it down to three? Here's a start ...
My latest discovery in the catalogue is the Tin of Tags stamp set and Tin of tags kit!
I spent less than an hour, putting together one set of tags with silver stars, sequins, red tassels and wooden snow flakes and stamping the words: With Love, Surprise, All wrapped up, Joy to the world, and warm wishes on each of the tags.
It was quick and easy, now I am definitely in the Christmas mood... Where's the Christmas carols on CD?
This set has not just words but a snow flake image and a single star and a string of stars. Great for background stamping as I have on this Burmuda Bay card. 
And, this is the first time I've used the Natural and silver trim ribbon for a bit of texture and dimension.
I've made up a second version of this card in real red, stamped with the sentiments and snowflake image from the stamp set and added two of the tags.
All wrapped up with love!

A Christmas card file box.

Often I am asked to make a bundle of cards and a box to put them in, to give as a gift or just a way to store a stack of cards on a shelf. 
That sent me to my favourite go to place for fabulous ideas - Pinterest!
And I looked and looked until I found the amazing Pootles, who has made a tutorial on this very thing.
So in short, I have cased (copy and share everything) her basic design and am sharing how I made this one.
All you need is a piece of A4 cardstock (this one is Cherry Cobbler). 21 X 29.7 cm.
The long side is scored at 10 cm and 15 cm. Then turn and score 
the short side at 3.5 cm and 17.5 cm.
Cut a piece of designer series paper 13.5 cm X 9.5 cm to decoate the front panel.
1. After scoring, fold along all the crease lines and make two cuts up to the 3.5 cm line on either side to form the inside flaps of the base. 
2.Trim two corners off from the fold to a point 5cm down each long side.
3. Add tape to the inside of the front panels.
And tape to the outside of the side panels.
4. Fold the back panel up first and adhere the tape.
5. The front panel will close over the outside and give a neat edge.
6. Place the patterned paper onto the front panel and decorate with stamped images on cut Framelits shapes. I've used the just released " Stitched Shapes Framelits" that I just can't put away without thinking of new ways to use them.
Here's a file box I made earlier...
And a close up of the first one I made using Candy Cane lane DSP. (Designer series paper).
Do you like making handmade cards, boxes and creating with the latest tools, ink and paper?
I run regular card making classes at Gosford on the Central Coast.
Contact Nerida to book into our next event or class 0468877125.
At this stage I have a limited number of places available at my class on Wednesday 23rd November.

Christmas Cards and coffee on a wednesday.

We had a very productive and fun class this morning. What did we make ?
Three cards and a file box to put them in.

We used the "Greetings from Santa" stamp set on a couple of the projects. Which is on sale at 25% off for the month of November. ( $33 reduced to $24.75).

It's a very versatile set with tree, reindeer, Santa's list and star images with lots of useful Christmas greetings.

There's nothing complicated on this white card with layers of simply falling snow. Two colours just the Garden green on the tree stamp and Cherry cobbler on the greeting stamp. With a bow of red bakers twine for balance.
The second card boldly features the Cable knit embossing folder, Presents and pine cones Patterned paper and new Stitched Framelits With an Emerald envy ruched ribbon bow. So easy to tie!
Our third card uses the Christmas specialty paper on page 172 of the Annual catalogue and the reindeer Framelits from Santa's sleigh thinlit dies on page 24 of the Holiday catalogue with some more of that Cherry cobbler bakers twine. The simply falling snow gives this little copper reindeer the textured look that I love so much.

We played with a new set of Framelits that I am a little bit obsessed with!
The Stitched Framelits are a set of circles, ovals and squares with a faux stitched edge they are available through November, returning again we hope in the 2017 June catalogue.

During November, there are nine stampsets on sale at 25% off. 
Greetings from Santa is reduced to $24.75
Hang your stocking $27.25
Christmas pines $45.75
Merry Mice $22.50
Tin of tags stamps $27.75
Suite Season $26.25
Oh What fun! $27.25 (p.31 AC)
Baby Bear $33.75 (p.61 AC)
Blooms and Wishes $27.75 (p139 AC)
