Stamp out Autism Blog Hop


Hi and Welcome to the Stamp out Autism Blog Hop!

You may have come from Cynthia’s  Blog.  Be sure to make your way around the whole hop, we have some exciting projects to share.

My project is a great Gift Box created from the Mini Treat Bag Thinlits Dies, Painted Blooms Designer Series Paper and the Butterflies Thinlits Dies.

Stamp out Autism Blog Hop

The box is a great size at around 9cm x 11.5cm – you can fit loads of goodies into this box.


I’ve also used the Spiral Flower Die to give a big of fullness and height to the top of box.


Close up of the top, only now you can see the Baking Paper I used when cutting out the Butterflies! *Blush*

Stampers across the US have raised over $23,500 with nationwide charity events.
Together with my Aussie friend and stamper, Louise Sharp, we are raising funds for Autism Australia. We would love it if you could even donate a small amount to help us raise $1000.


I’ll also be donating my 20% Commission made from Sales through my Online Store between the 18th and 25th April.  If you’d like to help out this way, click below to head to my Online Store, just remember to make sure you select Alisa Tilsner as your demonstrator.

Around the World Stampin’ Up! Challenge 39

I have a really quick and simple card design for the Around the World Stampin’ Up! Challenge.  I feel like I’ve missed so many of the challenges and I really wanted to get back into them…. so I’ve pulled out my Stampin Up Flower Frenzy Die and used the photo as inspiration.

Here’s the Challenge:


I’ve taken the purples, whites, yellows and greens in photo to use as my colour base.  I used the Embossing Folder Zig Zag to act as the brick path, and the Flower Frenzy Bigz Die for the flowers.  Really quick and simple for those running short on time, (read Alisa here!)

Head on over to the Around the World Stampin’ Up! Challenges and have a go yourself :)


Hawaii Grand Vacation 2015

Woohoo!!  It’s all getting really real now :)

These are the Luggage Tags that arrived in the mail along with our name lanyards and documents.  They were all bundled in a big zippered bag with a shell imprinted on it.  (you can see it just under the tags)  My eldest son has already asked if he can have it for his pencil case!

Hawaii Grand Vacation 2015

Hawaii will be my 9th Trip with Stampin’ Up! in 9 years.  I’m aiming for 10 :)

Here’s a closer look at the panel.

Now I have stamped on the Window Sheet with Stazon.  You can do this as long as you clean it IMMEDIATELY after you’ve used it, and give it a really really good scrubbing.  Mine came up sparkling :)

Here’s the sketch we played with, very simple this week.

Stampin Up Hello You Thinlit Dies

I’ve been playing with the same style of rainbow card as I did for Monday’s Blog Hop Challenge, but this time I’ve used Stampin Up Hello You Thinlit Dies in a new way.

I have to say first that this was soooooo fiddly, but kind of worth it. Stampin Up Hello You Thinlit Dies

I taught this at Linc n Learn today, and it’s probably best that there was only one student this week!  You need to keep all those little pieces in the die and it’s not good when you lose them!.

After I’d finished, I’d noticed I had lost a tiny piece of the Y grrrr.  I took my card over show my friend Bev what we’d been making, and she pointed out that I needed to be looking for a green sliver!  I raced back over to my area, and sure enough, there was a tiny sliver of green card on the floor…. It’s the little things in life *grin*

Here’s a closer look.

Stampin Up Hello You Thinlit Dies

It’s an interesting look, that’s for sure.

I’ve also just opened up a Facebook Event for anyone who has joined in with my $1000 Workshop Event, or anyone who would like to :)

Hooray It’s Your Day Kit Card 4

I nearly forgot to show you the final card from the Hooray It’s Your Day Kit.

This one is a gift card holder, and is super cute.

The kit comes with a whole heap of Bermuda Bay coloured number stickers, so your card can say Look who’s turning 40 for example.  I’m not sure who is going to get this card yet, so I’ve not put the stickers in place.

Hooray It's Your Day Kit Card 4

Once again I’ve sponged rather than spritzed.  This card has the awesome resist finish on it, very much like the Designer Paper in the Sale a Bration collection.

So once again, here’s a quick look at the kit itself and the stamp set that matches.

Hooray It's your day

Hooray Its your day

Don’t forget that you can also choose this kit as an extra freebie to your Stampin Up Kit when you join my team, there’s plenty of other kits to choose from if you prefer.



Only 7 days left of Sale a Bration, don’t forget that I’m also running my $1000 Workshop Event, where everyone gets to share in the rewards.


The Artful Stampers Blog Hop Challenge 25

Soooo…. I’m going to be a little late with my challenge today, but I promise I’ll get there.

In the mean time, here’s the challenge I set.

Team Challenge

Okay, I’m back :)  That didn’t take too long!  AND I made two cards.  Only because I couldn’t decide on whether do to a thick band of colour or a thin one, so I did both!

Rainbow Card

and my second one:

Now we can move onto Anna Foster :)


Hooray It’s Your Day Project Kit Card 3

Yesterday was Linc n Learn Day for me.  We made the last two cards from the Hooray It’s Your Day Project Kit.

This one involves sponging over a stencil, well we sponged instead of spritzed.  You can see it has a matchbox opening to give a little interest to the card.

One of the ladies laid the stencil over the whole card while the flap was tucked under.  This gave a little extra detail along the edge when the card is closed.  Of course we all had to add that to ours then :)

Hooray It's Your Day Project Kit Card 3

Another great bright and happy card.

If you’re looking for a gift, I’d highly recommend this kit.  It’s been very enjoyable putting the cards together.

Don’t forget we now have under two weeks till the end of Sale a Bration, and only 9 days left for my $1000 Workshop Event, where EVERYONE earns more again :)


Stampin Up Hooray It’s Your Day Project Kit Card 2

I’m back with the second card from the Stampin Up Hooray It’s Your Day Project Kit that we made last week.  Today at Linc n Learn, we’ll be making the next two.

Hooray It's Your Day Project Kit

In the Project Kit you get a couple of awesome stencils that you’ll be able to use over and over again.  This one shows rays, behind the balloon is a big yellow sun :)  Again we just sponged on the colour instead of spritzing it on (and I have added some Wink of Stella for extra sparkle).  I didn’t have my stencil positioned on my card correctly, and ended up with a white border down the spine, but I don’t think it’s too bad.

If you love the balloons, you can actually cut more of them from the Thinlit dies that has the balloons in them, at the moment the name of them are escaping my mind!  And I LOVE the little wooden stars that come with the kit.

I’ll come back with the next two cards in a the next couple of days.

LOVING this kit! If you’d like to purchase it, head on over to my ONLINE STORE, you might also like to take part in my $1000 Workshop Event and earn a FREEBIE from me :)


Stampin Up Hooray It’s Your Day Project Kit

At Linc n Learn last week and this week, we’ve been making the cards from the Stampin Up Hooray It’s Your Day Project Kit.  We have been LOVING them!!

The kit makes 20 Cards all up, being that there are 5 of us, we’ve been able to make one of each.

Here’s the first card we made.

Hooray It's Your Day

We stamped an extra Hooray on the file tab for the insert.  I decided that instead of using the Spritzer to add the colour, we would just sponge the colour on.  It was a little cleaner for the environment we were in.

We also sponged the back of the card, and also the insert.

Hooray It's Your Day

Each card also comes with it’s own pre cut and scored coloured envelope (which we also stamped some Hooray’s on)

Over the next few days, I’ll share the remaining 3 cards.

Here’s the kit which you can purchase for just $35.95

Hooray It's your day

And the matching Stamp Set for just $23.95

Hooray Its your day

Or instead of buying the kit, you could receive them for FREE by joining my team :)

Running this kit as a class where everyone buys a kit, could be your first gathering.
