Chat & Create – Stamping for Ava

G’Day Friends,

Card #3 is the show today!  Are you ready?

In case you have just joined me, I am showcasing the cards we created for our Charity morning for Ava.  You can read all about Ava’s Journey here.

Lots of yummy handmade food from our many volunteers around the community. Thank you so much.

Of course you can’t have yummy food without tea & coffee to wash it down.  This was our Coffee & Tea Station for the morning, where everyone could help themselves until lunch when we all played ladies with proper china!

Card #3 uses lots of pretty retired product but a perfect way to use up all the lovely DSP & to get 1 more use from the Stamp Set prior to selling.

Again, very simple & easy but one that proved very popular!

Card #3 – It’s Your Day!

Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions.

Happy Stamping!

Chat & Create – Stamping for Ava

G’Day Friends,

Today I am sharing something a little different with you.

Last Friday, we had a very fun morning of chatting, drinking cups of tea & coffee, with lots of laughing, eating, singing, dancing & crafting!  All with little Ava & her family at the backs of our minds.  You can read all about Ava’s Journey here.

The event was sort of spur of the moment about 1 month before the day so we just went with the flow – if it can happen this way!  Happy to report it went off without a hitch & with a handful of volunteers to help us make the day so successful & fun.  Of course, you can’t forget all the many volunteers behind the scenes who never let us down with their yummy homemade sweets & entrees.  Thank you so much!

We had 9 tables which seated 6 to each table except for 2, which seated 8.  You can imagine the designing, cutting & prepping for each card.  I also had to bear in mind that 99% of the ladies had never stamped before the event!  Each table had 2 different designs.  That’s 18 designs!!!!!

Anyhow, we got there with each of them creating 2 cards each with lots doing 3, 4 & 5.  A lot of them shocked themselves with what they created.  I will say the imagination on some of the projects was fantastic.  No 2 were alike.  They loved walking around for show & tell, shocked to find that each table had completely different cards – lol!

We even had a little 4 year boy who was with his Nana & created 2 cards – 1 for mum & 1 for his Daycare Teacher!  He was so proud.  He then found me later on to have a little twist on the dancefloor with him.  He had dumped his Nana!!!!

Card #1 – Darling Donkeys

Happy Stamping!

Butterfly Brilliance

G’Day Stampers,

Today I am sharing with you a card I created sometime ago but have never gotten round to sharing it with you.

Butterflies!  I love seeing them in my garden, flying out & in the flowers & plants  Some of them bright while others not so but all very beautiful just the same.

The butterflies have been stamped onto Basic White in Bermuda Bay, chopped into 3’s prior to adhering to a piece of Blushing Bride.  I didn’t go how these colours would suite but I am liking them.

Randomly chopping my layers & DSP into pieces is one of my favourite ways of creating my cards.  So what do I do this time round after stamping my image?  Chop into 3’s, of course.

The central butterfly is from the now retired Butterfly Bijou DSP.  I love that we have images on some of our DSP that also coordinate with our Dies.

To download a free PDF Tutorial, all you have to do is click on the link below.  It includes both A4 – Metric & Imperial plus Letter size measurements.  Of course we can’t forget the List of Products to create your project.

950.  Birthday Wishes – Butterfly Brilliance

Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions.

Happy Stamping!

Dragonfly Garden

G’Day Stampers,

Today’s card is an idea I’ve had in my head for a couple of days so of course, I had to try & recreate the idea onto a card.  I’m happy to say that it worked out how I was one seeing it.

I die cut 4 different stitched rectangle shapes from a piece of Very Vanilla Cardstock with the Stitched Rectangle Dies before randomly stamping 3 of the shapes with images from Dragonfly Garden Stamp Set.   The 4th one I stamped a sentiment from the same Stamp Set.  All images were stamped in Night of Navy Ink.

The shapes were then arranged & adhered to a mat of Smokey Slate Cardstock.

A piece of Merry Merlot Cardstock was embossed with the Tasteful Textile 3D Embossing Folder, adhered to a Night of Navy Base Card before the Smokey Slate panel was adhered to the centre of the embossed Cardstock with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I punched 3 x small dragonflies from scrap Merry Merlot Cardstock with the Dragonflies Punch prior to randomly adhering to the Card Front.

To complete the card, I adhered a Silver Metallic Pearls to the centre of each dragonfly & randomly to the panel.

I hope you like it as much as I did creating it.

Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions.

Happy Stamping!

Snail Mail Suite

G’Day Friends,

I’ve used a piece of the gorgeous Snail Mail DSP along the bottom, wrapped a piece of the Whisper White Twine from the Snail Mail Combo Pack, adhere it to a layer of Real Red & then to a Basic Grey Base Card.

The mushrooms have been die cut from the DSP with the Snail Dies – love these Dies – before being adhered to the Card Font with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I’ll let you in on a little secret – To make my DSP shapes more stable, I always cut another shape in Basic White or similar & adhere the DSP shape to the Basic White shape.  This way it makes your DSP shape a little more stronger.

The little envelope was die cut from a piece of Basic White Cardstock again with the Snail Dies, folded into shape before being adhered to the Card Front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

The sentiment was stamped onto a piece of Basic White in Memento Tuxedo Black Ink before being die cut with the shape from the Snail Dies & adhered to just the inside of the envelope with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

The card was then completed by randomly scattering 3 of the cute little Resin Hearts from the same Suite.

Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions.

Happy Stamping!

Enjoy Every Moment

G’Day Friends,

Thank you so much for visiting today.  It is always very much appreciated.

Today I am sharing a card I created from a piece of A5 Basic white Cardstock.

Some of the images from Enjoy Every Moment Stamp Set were randomly stamped direct onto a piece of A5 Basic White Cardstock before being chopped down to size.

I matched the Ink colours with the Cardstock Colours of – Misty Moonlight, Mossy Meadow, Crumb Cake & Pumpkin Pie.

The sentiment is from the cute Pretty Perennials Stamp Set.

I will admit that these aren’t colours that I would normally go for but I am happy iwth the final result as they are perfect for the males.

Celebrate Sunflowers #3

G’Day Friends,

I do hope you all had a lovely weekend.

I am a little late in sharing my 3rd project with you featuring the Celebrate Sunflowers Bundle.

I am not normally a green person but I am loving the colour combination with this one.  I’m not sure if it is the touch of Pumpkin Pie in the sunflower or what it may be.

I’ve teamed Mint Macaron, Old Olive with touches of Pumpkin Pie & Soft Suede to create this one.

Sometimes we don’t know where our creations are heading but we keep pushing on with them so that the end result is as much a surprise to us as it is to you.

I’ve completed the card with a couple of Holiday Rhinestones.
