Stampin’ Up! Gold Sequin Trim Glamour & Mothers Day wishes

Happy Mothers Day to all you wonderful Mums.  I hope you got a sleep in and lots of love and hugs.    This is my FAVOURITE part of Mother’s Day – the big all in the bed cuddle (after they eat my breakfast in bed). 🙂

This is me this morning enjoying the Autumn sun and trying out my Mothers Day gifty – gumboots. *love*  It sure does get wet up here in the Adelaide Hills and these beauties will get a good workout.

Why not treat yourself to a little gift and swing by my online store? Check out the Weekly Deals and of course the Clearance Rack which is always being updated.

I was up to the wee hours last night working on a project for a presentation I’m doing a Stampin’ Up! South Pacific Convention… It’s now next week!!!  eeeeekkk! I got a great idea yesterday- at least I thought it was a great idea but then while I was working on it, like most of my ideas it turned into something completely different from what it started as. Am I going to show you???? Nope. Sorry I’m bound to secrecy until after Convention on the 20th to the 24th of May. But if you see me between now and then, I’ll be the one with the bags under my eyes burning the midnight oil.

Here is a little something I can show you. A card I made using my LOVE the Stampin’ Up! Gold Sequin Trim. Who doesn’t love bling right? I’ve teamed it up for a modern feel using the watercolour stamp from the Happy Watercolor stamp set in the Occasions mini. I know, I know, I’m totally wearing that set out!!! Here I’ve used my all time favourite Crumbcake card stock – oh Crumbcake how much do I love The? Let me count the ways.

Sketched Birthday & Weekly Deals…………and Moo Moo is back!

carolynbennieink.wordpress.com

 

Moo Moo is back!!! This was an AMAZING day in the Bennie Family. Moo Moo is my middle son Macauley’s very special toy that he’s had since he was a baby. One day late last year we realised that Moo Moo was gone. I mean really really gone. At first we thought he’d just fallen under the bed or was in a toy box but after a few weeks when he didn’t show up we all started to get worried. I turned the house upside down looking for Moo Moo, I would have brilliant idea in the middle of the night and be found digging through the linen cupboard (was he trapped inside a fitted sheet???) and to be honest the kids room got a super big clean out as I crawled under beds and riffled through wardrobes. But to no avail. Moo Moo was just plain gone.

Life without Moo Moo was hard. Macauley was in tears when Moo Moo missed Christmas and then our summer beach holiday – the pain of loosing this little fella was very hard for a loving 6 year old. I was a mess too…… I hated seeing my little man so sad. So after a lot of Googling I found another New Moo at a toy store in Queensland. Macauley was excited to have a ‘New’ Moo and the order was placed.

So with ‘New’ Moo now taking pride of place in Macauley’s bed we tried to move on and hoped that one day Moo Moo would come back to us – but to be honest I thought he was never going to come back, perhaps he somehow had been thrown out 😦 . Until………… My oldest son Finn was playing in the sand pit outside and let out a huge shout  “MOO MOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!”  Yep, Moo Moo was found under a bush at the side of the sandpit. After us all dancing the happy dance,  Moo Moo was carried straight into the laundry and washed, and washed, and washed, then washed with fungal wash three times and scrubbed.

Below is a photo that shows pure happiness…….

Now Moo Moo AND New Moo take turns in Macauley’s bed at night and life is peaceful and happy for my little man again. But you might ask how did Moo Moo find his way out to the sandpit…….. see below the culprit ………

Fudge our 3 year old cavoodle.

Here she is looking very guilty watching Moo Moo in the washing machine. How do I know it was Fudge? Well that fact that the very next day I found her burying Moo Moo in a pile of the (now clean) washing AND just yesterday I could hear Moo Moo’s bell as Fudge carried him down the hall way!!! So naughty!!! While it would seem Moo Moo and New Moo have a stalker we now have to be put them up high every day for their own protection. LOL.

Now for a bit of creative inspiration. I made these two birthday cards using the Sketched Birthday stamp set for a couple of kids birthday parties my boys attended. Lots of sponge daubing and a little watercolouring made me very happy.

Which colour way do you prefer? I love this set as it’s great for adults or kids. It’s a stamp set that gets a big all round work out not just a few images. I’ve also used the fab paper stack from the Occasions Mini Catalogue -Fresh Prints designer series paper. It’s really good value with 48 sheets of 11.4 x 16.5cm paper. There are 4 of 12 double sided designs so you have lots of different designs to mix and match.

I think I like this one on the left but I’d love to hear your thoughts.

Photopolymer Stamps (completely clear stamps) now available

demoheader_photopolymer_demo_5-1-2014_sp8ff411583795661a8962ff0000f7f0e6

 

Stampin’ Up! searched long and hard for just the right material to be able to introduce completely clear stamping. They’ve found it! I’m excited to announce that with the release of the upcoming 2014-2015 Annual Catalogue, will have wood-mount, clear-mount AND photopolymer stamps. Our top-quality photopolymer stamps stick extremely well on our acrylic blocks, are durable, and the transparent nature of these sets makes it easier to line up your images without the need of a guide. This is a feature that is particularly helpful with alphabets, borders, and backgrounds! Photopolymer is clearly a great choice.

Will you want to wait until the catalogue comes out to try this great new product? Of course not! So, beginning 1 May, Stampin’ Up! are introducing two exclusive photopolymer stamp sets: Show & Tell 1, and Show & Tell 2.

These great new photopolymer sets are designed to be used together. Even better, you can order both sets in a bundle that comes with an amazing online class-featuring tons of great project ideas using Show & Tell 1 and 2.

Card in a box – are you on trend or like me?

Are you the sort of person that has to follow the latest trend? Did you buy bubblegum jeans or hypercolour t-shirts 5 mins after they arrived on the shop? You’re always so cool and on-trend, right? OR are you like me and fight the good fight about NOT being a conformist …….but then end up joining in anyways…. usually when the trend is on the way out?  Yep that’s usually me – but not any more!!!!! Today I’m bringing you the latest trend in the paper craft world now – when it’s HOT – that’s right -Card in a box. IMG_5120So how cute? It folds down for easy postage and then pops up and reveals something really special.

IMG_5118

Next time I’ll make sure the sentiment is a little smaller so it doesn’t hang over the edge when folded.

Here’s a few of the items I used to make this little cutie:

Stamp Set:

Flower Shop # 130939 Wood mount #130942 Clear mount

Happy Congratulations # 133044 Wood mount #133047 Clear mount

Card Stock: Sale-A-Bration Designer Series Paper (free with purchase of $90 or more) #133521  Sweet Sorbet 

Email if you have any questions about any other items used 🙂

 

IMG_5122

I was thinking this was going to be a really challenging card to make but guess what? Easypeasy. I followed this tutorial from UK Demonstrator Monica Gale who is simply amazing and an all round sweet heart. (If you’re not following her blog you totally should.) Here we are at last years Stampin’ Up! Grand Vacation in Utah showing the love.

IMG_3397

So this card is actually for my beautiful niece Courtney and her wonderful new fiancée Michael who are starting out their lives together and who got engaged on New Years eve. I wanted to make her something special and therefore this card has taken a little longer then expected (*yikes*) but it is now on it’s way to her in the mail – along with a little gift. 😉 Congratulations Hon!!

Remember it’s Sale-A-Bration time.. any order of $90 or more will earn you a FREE product from the exclusive Sale-A-Bration range. You can either order by emailing me or just head on over to my online store and order there.

Now, I’m off to buy those bubblegum jeans and a hypercolour t-shirt- they’re still trendy aren’t they???? LOL.
