Thank you for dropping by today. It is always very much appreciated.
I am sharing with you one of 3 cards created sometime ago for the Beginner Stamper, through to the Avid Stamper. Today’s card is for the Beginner.
I am going to miss this gorgoeous Stamp Set. First Frost has been a great friend to me & one of my “go to” stamp sets. Have you grabbed your set while you can?
I’ve done a little bit of basic masking to create my card but only stamped with Night of Navy & Mossy Meadow Inks. I think this card proves that you don’t need a lot of product to create a lovely card. Don’t you agree?

I’m a little late in posting today – sort of got sidetracked on our walk this morning.
I have set myself a goal in that I am going to use every stamp I have from the catalogue this year. It is so easy to overlook some of our older favourite stamps in favour of the new ones from the Occasions & Holiday Catalogues. Don’t worry, I will be using my newer stamps too, but just wanted to dust off my older stamps.
Today’s card is one using “Remarkable You” Stamp Set but with a little bit of colouring, embossing & fussy cutting, not to mention a different layout, it can give the stamp a whole new lease of life.
I’ve kept my card very simple letting the flower speak for itself. Teaming it up with a bright Card Base & touches of Black, I think it makes the image “POP“, but I would really like to know what you think?

Our card we created in Crafty Creations yesterday arvo was using last year’s SAB products. Yep, I still have a heap of the gorgeous “Sweet Sorbet” DSP sitting on my shelf & it is the perfect time to use it, as this is my volunteer class.
I decided that to take the best advantage of this paper was to use the “Sunburst” Technique for our card. We had a full class yesterday which was great & everyone seemed to enjoy creating their card using this technique.
In fact, I gave each of the ladies a little bit of homework where they were given enough DSP to create another card using the same paper & technique. I will post mine in a couple of days.

In one of Technique Classes last month, we used the great stamp set “Swallowtail” & applied it to the technique – “Split Negative“.
I was really happy with the way this card turned out, as it is a little different to what I’ve seen using this technique. I wanted to try a couple of non-traditional colours instead of the black & white that is usually the ones used for this technique.
Today’s card is one with a bit of a surprise inside.
I am so far behind in my posts that I think I have enough cards to post for the next couple of months without adding any extras I’ve created in between posts. Where does the time go????
Our card today is one we created sometime ago in Crafty Creations. As most of the ladies have either a Big Shot or Cuttlebug, once a month, we concentrate on these products. It is usually a great way for them to learn how to use their tools. Included in this class we also concentrated on the Technique – Chalks or Pastels, including learning how to create a pleated skirt from paper.
I let the ladies know what we will be creating each week & what to bring along if they want. This way, they are using the “stuff” they may have & familiarising themselves with their own “stuff“. I took along a number of different Embossing Folders for the ladies who don’t have a machine or Folders.
I think this is another card I saw on Pinterest, but am not that sure. Please let me know if you recognise it, as I would love to give you credit for the inspiration.
… has been created using yet another retired Stamp Set from Stampin’ Up! In fact I’ve used 2! I lov e it when I can use some of my Retired Sets. In fact, one of them had never been used, while a couple of the images from Artfully Asian had only seen ink once.
I must admit I saw this card some time ago while surfing the internet & as usual I didn’t save it but filed it in my brain. I’m not even sure if I have created it the way I remember it, but hopefully the ladies in my volunteer Friday class will enjoy creating it.
After some deliberation, I decided to use my Stampin’ Write Markers to colour the delicate flowers. I was very careful not to spread the ink from Early Expresso around & mix it with the Markers.
To take away the blank canvas a little more & to bring the flowers to life, I then added tiny Pearls to the centres as well as randomly over the card.

I’m a little late in posting this which means the challenge is probably over. I have been unable to post photos to my blog. Have all the information entered but no photos – but I think I have finally found a way, fingers crossed. If this works, then I can actually catch up with my posts.
This week, I found a little time to play along with a challenge. It seems like forever that I’ve played along with any challenges. It also come at the right time as I needed a card for a birthday that is coming up in the next couple of weeks.
