August Blog Hop - Technique

Hi all

Welcome to our monthly blog hop that I do with some lovely ladies. We are all Stampin' Up demonstrators, but more importantly we are all friends. Great thing craft does is you meet so many like minded people.

Anyway on to our blog hop. This month we are bringing you different techniques. You may have just hopped over from Di Dunks talented home of the web, if you havent and you are starting here, not to worry, keep following the links at the bottom of each page and you will do a complete circle seeing everyone wonderful work and end up back at the start. Feel free to leave a comment at the end of the page to let us know you have come for a visit.

The technique I am showing you today is bleaching, yes household bleach and cardstock. 
This is a card I have made using Growing Green(pg 66 of the 2011-2012 catalogue) by embossing the stamped image with gold embossing then using my aqua painter (pg 147) filled with everyday household bleach and painted the inside of the leaves. Once dried ou can see the colour it has become. Below is a before and after of the stamped image. I love this set, if you do too, you need to be quick as it is retiring at the end of this month, so let me know if you want this ordered or anything from the retiring list on the righthand side of the blog before they run out.

Each different colour cardstock gives you a different effect. I have quickly coloured some images from our Elements of Style(pg 94) set to show you the effects on other colours.
Well thats it from me today, dont forget if you want new catalogue or wish to order, feel free to email me or call (03) 8711 4401 (from anywhere is Australia) and I can get this straight to your door.

I cant wait to see what wonderfully talented friend Kathryn Ruddick has to show us, are you coming? Im going to grab a cuppa and enjoy the rest of the blog, I hope you enjoy it as much as I know I will.

Things to come

Hi all ,

Thought I would pop in here to say a quick hi and let you know what is coming up. I had a little time off to look after my daughter for a while but now but up and going. We had our very first Heartfelt Stampin Up day in Melbourne which was where we could bring our customers along to join in the fun and learn lots of new techniques and so many more ideas.

We have two AMAZING new catalogues coming out very soon - 1st of September actually. The first time our catalogues have been nearly identical to the American ones. Our main catalogue has some wonderful new items in it, and not all for the paper crafter, there is material, ribbons, buttons and even cookie molds!!!

If you want to get your hands on one of these catalogues feel free to email me or call me from anywhere in Australia on 03 8711 4401 and i can get one of these to you ASAP. Want to get some of the product for free??? Have a party, we can show your friends how to make a card and at end you will be able to choose product out of the catalogue or hostess only items for free (sales permitting). Its a great way to get together with your friends and show them what you love to do and get them to love it too.

Dont forget to click on the retiring stock on the right hand column if there is something you want, dont hesitate to contact me because once they are gone, they are gone forever.

We have a new blog hop starting on the 25th of this month with some lovely ladies, this month will be all about techniques. A great hop to learn so many new ideas.

Well until then keep creating and if there is anything at all I can help you with in your crafty world just email or phone and we can get it done together!!!
