Stamp ‘N Hop Blog Hop

G’Day stampers,

Today I am hopping along with the June Stamp ‘N Hop Blog Hop.

We are a group of SU! Demos from all over the world sharing their love of Stampin’ Up! June-2019---Hello-to-the-ne You are free to join us if you like, but we do ask that you be a current SU! Demo & that you use current SU! products.

Oh boy, do we have a real treat for you this month as it is a great big hello to the brand new 2019-2020 Annual Catalogue!  I sure hope you are inspired with all the fantastic projects you will see as you hop along with us.

You may have arrived from Stacey’s blog where I’m sure you would have seen her fantastic project.

I chopped & changed my mind so many times  I ended up confusing myself with all the lovely new stuff I could pre-order.  In the end I decided to keep it simple & showcase the gorgeous new Magnolia Lane Memories & More Card Pack along with the Magnolia Lane Large Specialty Memories & More Cards & Envelopes.  I can see myself using these a lot during the year & are already on my list for re-ordering.

Card #1

I adhered a small card from the Memories & More Card Pack onto a piece of Petal Pink Magnolia-Lane-Card-Pack---ICardstock before adhering it to the centre of the large Card.  The sentiment has been adhered to a piece of Whisper White Cardstock for more support, cut back to size & then adhered to a piece of Mossy Meadow Cardstock which has been punched with the Classic Label Punch before adhering it to the card front with Mini Stampin’ Dimenisonals.

I wrapped a piece of Mossy Meadow Twine which is from the Magnolia Lane Ribbon Combo Pack, around my fingers & adhered it the back of a die cut flower using a Mini Glue Dot.  Once again, I adhered the die cut flower to a piece of scrap Whisper White for more support & fussy cut around the flower.  The flower was then popped over the Twine with a Stampin’ Dimensional.

It was finished with a couple of Pearls to the Card Front.


Card #2

Again a small card from the Memories & More Card Pack was adhered onto a piece of Petal Pink Cardstock before adhering it to the centre of the large card. The sentiment was again adhered to a piece of whisper White, cut back to size & adhered to the Card Front with Mini Stampin’ Dimenisonals.

It was finished with a couple of Pearls to the Card Front.

For the insides of the cards, a decorative strip from the Card Pack was adhered onto a piece of Whisper White prior to adhering inside the Base Card.

The cards are very easy to create but oh boy, are they gorgeous in real life.

I will be sharing the remainder of the cards created during he week so be sure to pop back to see them all.

Scrapbooking Global July Blog Hop


G’Day stampers,

Today I am not only taking part in the very first Blog Hop – Scrapbooking Global – Stampin’ Up! but it is Day 4 of my DSP Showcase.  It is a FB Page for anyone who love SU! Products & who scraps.  There are over 3500 members.  If you love Stampin’ Up! & you love to scrap then why not join us.

Thank you for visiting.  You have just arrived from Jessica’s page which means you are36518126_10216049000962426_604109715940573184_n now half way through the hop.  I do hope you are enjoying the pages that everyone has created & getting lots of ideas.

Our Challenge this month was to create our page using the Sketch Layout.  Easy, right?  Well, I thought so to but for the life of me I’ve had heaps of trouble coming up with a page that I liked.  I think I may have been overthinking things which then creates all sorts of hassles.

Those of you that visit my blog, know that I do layouts for my niece & post them down to her.  Sometimes, they include photos, other times they are just the layouts & she selects the photos.  The journaling is mostly all left blank as I love her to write in her own handwriting.  I think it means more this way.

Anyhow my photo is one of Bon & her brother Jesse who was married in Argentina in April this year.  They are very close which I tried to capture in the layout including the colours in Bon’s dress & the black of Jess’ suite.  I’ve kept my page very simple as I didn’t want to take away from her gorgeous lace dress.  I have been a little loose with my layout Scrapbook---Fun-Times---Cloas it is a little different to the sketch.

I lightly sponged Balmy Blue onto a piece of Whisper White Cardstock before randomly stamping the image from Touches of Texture & a piece of the Delightfully Detailed Laser-Cut Specialty Paper was adhered top right hand corner.  This paper suited her dress perfectly!

The photo was mounted onto a piece of Whisper White Cardstock. The journaling area is a piece of Whisper White with a piece of the Specialty Paper adhered to the top & let hang over a little.

The 2 hearts were die cut from Balmy Blue & Basic Black Cardstock using the Sunshine Wishes Thinlits & adhered to a piece of Whisper White Cardstock.

The “love” was die cut from Basic Black using the same Framelits & adhered to a piece of Whisper White.  All 4 pieces of Whisper White were then adhered to a square of Basic Black & then to the sponged Whisper White.

The letters were cut from Balmy Blue & Whisper White, adhered onto each other but off centered a little before adhering to the Basic Black Square.  The little butterfly was die cut from Balmy Blue & Whisper White while the subtitle was typed & printed onto a piece of Whisper White, mounted onto a piece of Balmy Blue & then adhered to the page.

Next up on the hop is Michelle.  Just click on the “NEXT” button or from the names below 36476330_10155548748437694_8153268887673110528_nin the Blog Roll.  When visiting the blogs, please don’t forget to leave a little love by way of a comment.  I’m sure they will appreciate it.

Global Stampin’ Friends Blog Hop

Welcome to this month’s Global Stamping Friends Blog Hop & thank you for visiting.  logoWe are a group of card makers from all over the world who love to create.  This month the challenge is all about the spanking, brand new Annual Catalogue.  If you haven’t heard by now the new catalogue went live yesterday so be sure to contact your nearest Demonstrator for a copy.

You have come via the very talented Sharon who does amazing work especially with her scrapbooking.

Dragonfly-Dreams-1---InsideFor my card today I opted to go very simple & showcase a couple of the new In Colours – Lovely Lipstick & Pineapple Punch Inks & boy do they have a “punch”.   I will say I am not a Brights’ girl, but I am loving these colours.  I teamed the Inks with Basic Black, Whisper White & Lovely Lipstick Cardstock along with a set that has carried over – Dragonfly Dreams.


My dragonfly has been heat embossed using VersaMark & Clear Emboss Powder.  I love embossing my shapes this way as it sort of packs a bit of a “punch” to your projects.

By clicking on the link above the photo, you will be able to download a free tutorial to create your own version.  The tutorial includes a list of products used, measurements (metric & imperial) plus a tutorial for the card.

Stampin’ Up! Retiring Products Blog Hop

retiringproductsbloghopThank you for joining me today.  I’m pretty excited as this is the first time I’ve been a part of the RemARKably Created Blog Hop which is open to all SU! Demonstrators from around the globe.  I have looked at the hop for a while now & thought this the perfect time to hop along.  This month it is all about Retiring Products!  Thank you so much Janet for making this possible.

As always at the start of a new catalogue year, there is so much that I THINK I am going to miss, but seem to get over very quickly as all the new “stuff” starts to arrive & before I  know it I am once again, busy playing with my new “stuff” that the retired product is long forgotten. 

Rose-Wonder---Close-UpI thought I would share with you one of my all time favourite Sets – Rose Wonder along with the matching Rose Garden Thinlits.  I am sure going to miss these items, but no doubt Stampin’ Up! will have much bigger & better things available for us to purchase.

To start off with I stamped the flower onto a piece of Whisper White Cardstock, coloured with Pink Pirouette & Old Olive Stampin’ Blends (available once again in the new catalogue) before die cutting the rose outline & adhering over the top of the stamped image.

In case you get lost on the hop, there is a list below that you are able to click on to follow along.  Please leave comments to any that you may visit as I’m sure they would appreciate it.

Stampin’ Dreams Blog Hop


 Thanks so much for joining me today.  I am participating in the Stamping Dreams Blog Hop for December.  The theme this month is showcasing our favourite DSP.  This can be from the 2017-2018 Annual, 2017 Holiday Catalogue, the new 2018 Occasions Catalogue or the 2018 Sale-a-Bration Brochure.  So many options!
This means you are getting a sneak peek from a couple of the items being made available come the 3rd January 2018 as I went with the fun & bright “Bubbles & Fizz” DSP from SAB & which you can earn free when you spend $AUD90.00 (excluding P&H).
I then decided to team it up with the equally fun & matching Bubble Over Bundle which includes the Bubble Over Stamp Set & the Bottles & Bubbles Framelits.  I think these items are going to be one of my favourites from the Catalogues.Bubble-Over---Inside
I’ve kept the use of my DSP fairly simple as I didn’t want it to be overtaken by the bottles, which have been created by die cutting & sponging with Calypso Coral, Lemon Lime Twist, Bermuda Bay, Daffodil Delight & Basic Grey Inks.  I then spritzed the bottle with water to form “bubbles”.

If you click on the link below you will be able to download a free tutorial which includes the product used to create the page plus measurements (metric & imperial).

By clicking on the links list below the photo, you will be able to check out the other lovely creations in the hop.

Thank you so much for stopping by & checking out my project today.

Until next time, Happy Stampin’

Global Stamping Friends Anniversary Blog Hop


Today I am taking part in an Anniversary Blog Hop happening over at Global Stamping Friends which is a group of Demonstrators from all around the world.  We are celebrating 12 months since the group started & boy has it grown!

For the special Anniversary Hop our theme is ANNIVERSARY of course!logo

I was so undecided as to what I was going to use & how to create my card that I ended up totally confused, so I decided to keep it simple with lots of white.

The past week or so I have been experimenting  with my inks & stamps, trying new ways of stamping & colouring.  My image was inspired by a card sitting on my desk which I will share with you sometime in the future once it has been finished.

My image is from the “Floral Phrases” Stamp Set which was inked using Pink Pirouette & Pear Pizzazz Stampin’ Write Markers & stamped direct onto a piece of Whisper White CS.  I then grabbed my Flirty Flamingo Stampin’ Write Marker, scribbled colour onto a Block & picking up small amounts of colour at a time with a Blender Pen, coloured over areas of the Pink Pirouette.  I repeated the same technique for the leaves using Wild Wasabi Ink.  I think it brings the flower to life.

Floral-Phrases---InsideThe flower was die cut with the oval shape from the Stitched Shape Framelits by running through the Big Shot.  As I wanted my card to be mostly all white, I decided to add a small scallop Whisper White frame behind the oval so I die cut another piece of Whisper White CS using the Layering Ovals Framelits & running through the Big Shot.  This piece was adhered to the stamped oval.

I embossed a piece of Whisper White CS with the Softly Falling EF before layering onto the Base Card – Flirty Flamingo.  The oval shape was adhered to the Card Front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

The sentiment is from the “Beautiful Bouquet” Stamp Set.  I thought it suited the card & blog hop perfectly.  It was stamped onto scrap Whisper White CS in Flirty Flamingo, cut each end into a Banner Shape & adhered to the bottom of the flower with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I do hope you have enjoyed my card.  Be sure to check out all the other wonderful creations joining the blog hop.
