Freshly Brewed Projects - Thanks



Welcome to another Freshly Brewed Projects from the Latte Girls. This week it is all about giving Thanks.

We all have something to be thankful for, and someone to be thankful to. I know right now I am so thankful for my wonderful husband. Not only is he supporting me through some difficult times with my parents and their health issues, but he is now having to help out around the house more as I have been sick myself.  He is not only my husband, but my best friend. So I thought I might give him this card that I made for Stampin' Up!'s demonstrator gathering last November. 

Dragonfly Dreams - Simply Stamping with Narelle - available here - http://www3.stampinup.com/ECWeb/ProductDetails.aspx?productID=144728&dbwsdemoid=4008228


I was lucky enough to be chosen as a display stamper. This meant that I got to play with some of the products from the Occasions Catalogue before they were released, even to demonstrators. This is one of the cards I made for the display boards.

It uses the Dragonfly Dreams bundle which consists of beautiful dragonfly stamps and matching framelits. Not only are there dragonflies in this set but there is also this cute little bee.

Here is the bundle if you haven't seen it yet.

International Blog Highlight



Thanks for dropping by my blog today. Today a whole group of us demonstrators are being highlighted by Kylie Bertucci on her blog.You can even vote for my project and the top winners will get to be part of an international bog hop. How exciting. So I would appreciate some loving by you voting on my project. You can do that HERE.

The theme for this highlight is Travel. What places have you been and enjoyed, or what amazing places are on your bucket list. Hot air ballooning is on my bucket list, but first I need to pluck up a lot of courage to even consider making it happen. With that in mind, I made a card around that theme.



Aren't these hot air balloons just gorgeous. They are from the Lift Me Up stamp set. They were stamped on Whisper White and cut out using the Up & Away Thinlits Dies. Same with the clouds. You can get these as a bundle and save yourself 10%. Got to love a saving. The greeting is also from that set, but I used the Stampin' Trimmer and Paper Snips to cut that.

Do you like the variegated and ombre look background? Well I will let you in on a secret. I didn't sponge it or anything like that. Oh no, it was so much more simpler than that. It's a piece of paper from the Serene Scenery Designer Series Paper Stack. Just perfect for this card and so quick and easy.

If you live in Australia and want to purchase any of these items I have used on this card, then see the product list at the end. Each picture of the items will take you directly to that item in my online store.

Dragonflies

Today I have a little frame to share with you using the new Dragonfly Dreams bundle. I made it for the display boards at the last Stampin' Up! get together in November.


This was designed to be a little gift that you could give to someone special. I stamped a piece of whisper white card stock with the dotty pattern from the Dragonfly Dreams stamp set. It's a bit hard to see in the photo, but I used a variety of colours. Then a piece of vellum was placed over the top which has been stamped with the sentiment. Those cute dragonflies which are in several different colours were then glued to the top. To get the dragonflies in the different colours, I just laid several strips of cardstock down and stuck them together using double sided tape. Then I turned them over and cut out the dragonflies using the Detailed Dragonfly Thinlits Dies. The frame was so  easy to make. It is just a piece of card stock cut to the same size as the base with a window cut from it. The foam adhesive strips made it so easy to attach to the base and give that 3D popped up look.
