Celebrate Sunflowers

G’Day Friends,

Thanks so much for popping in today!  It is always very much appreciated.

Today I thought I would do something a little different & share with you a project with one of the Bundles I love – Celebrate Sunflowers!

In fact, you will be happy to know that I will be sharing projects I’ve created with this Bundle all week just for you.

I was playing around with my Blending Brushes the other day & had a spare piece of Cardstock left over.  So as not to waste it, I thought it perfect to create a simple card to share with you today.

A piece of Basic White Cardstock has been blended with Bumblebee Ink & a Blending Brush.

I temp adhered this piece to a piece of Basic White Card prior to stamping the large sunflower direct onto the blended area plus ensuring that part of the image stamped over onto the Basic White Cardstock too.

To create a mask, I stamped the same image onto scrap paper prior to fussy cutting along the stamped lines.

This mask was temp adhered to the stamped image prior to stamping the single leaf image around the sunflower in Early Espresso Ink.

I carefully removed the mask & the sponged Cardstock before adhering the panel to a piece of Early Espresso Cardstock.

I adhered this piece to the partially stamped Basic White ensuring that all images are matched in perfectly or as close as can be.

The sentiment is from the Peaceful Moments Stamp Set & was stamped straight onto the Basic White layer in Early Espresso prior to adhering to a Bumblebee Base Card.

The card was completed by adhering 5 x Bumblebee Enamel Dots to the Card Front.

Tip – You could always die cut a piece of Early Espresso Cardstock with the Sunflowers Dies & add to the top of the stamped sunflower.

If you have enjoyed my card today, be sure to pop back in a couple of days when I will be sharing my 2nd project with you.

A Little Lace #2

G’Day Friends,

Thank you for popping by today.

This is my 2nd card this week featuring the sweet A Little Lace Stamp Set.  So many ideas are now popping into my head including why haven’t I played with this set more throughout the year?

A little bit colouring with the Stampin’ Blends of Daffodil Delight & Petal Pink along with a little bit of random line drawing around the edge with my Pretty Peacock Stampin’ Write Marker & a little flicking of colour with the same Marker along with a few lines around the edge of the card for a little bit of a different look.  The Base Card is also Pretty Peacock.

I am loving the little Gold Metallic Pearls to complete the card.  They really make the whole card pop.

I actually took the layout from a challenge site on FB but now of course, can’t find it.  I thought the stamp set perfect for the challenge.

I hope you enjoyed this week of Anything Goes!  Don’t forget to pop back Monday for a week of a creating with a certain favourite bundle of mine but shhhhhhhhhh…….

A Little Lace

G’Day Friends,

Thank you for popping by today.

Today’s card has been taken from one I saw on Pinterest by Annette Elliot.  I just loved the colours & the simple layout, although I have changed mine a little as you do.  Thank you Annette for your inspiration.

I’ve used the sweet “A Little Lace” Stamp Set & one that I am wondering why I haven’t played with more as I am loving it.  I can see a few more projects coming with this set.

Did you know the Medium Daisy Punch fits the large daisy in this set?  Isn’t that fantastic?Did you notice I’ve used 4 of the retiring 2019-2021 In ColoursTerracotta Tile, Purple Posy Cardstocks, Purple Posy & Rococo Rose Stampin’ Blends plus Pretty Peacock Ink?  Oh not to mention the Terracotta Tile Butterfly Gems to complete my card.

Both the Classic Label Punch (one of my favourite Punches) & the Layering Ovals Dies are retiring too.  Check them out in the Last Chance Product List.

Actually, I’ve used a lot of retiring products to create my card today as I’ve just realised the Subtle 3D Embossing Folder is on the list too!

Game On – Day 2

G’Day Friends,

Thank you for popping by today.

Again my project is featuring the Game On Stamp Set but this time round it has been created with the females in mind.

Images have been randomly stamped onto a piece of Very Vanilla (you may notice lots of Very Vanilla this week lol), with Blushing bride, Rococo Rose & Crumb Cake Inks.

I then decided to chop the piece into 3 pieces before chopping each into 2 pieces to give it a bit more interest.  In fact I actually chopped 1 of the pieces into 3.

All pieces were the adhered to a piece of Blushing Bride Cardstock & then to a Crumb Cake Base Card.

The sentiment was stamped onto scrap Very Vanilla, die cut with a shape from the Tasteful Labels Dies & adhered to the same shape but die cut in Rococo Rose with the same die before being cut into half long ways.

A piece of Blushing Bride Twine from the Snailed It Twine Combo Pack was adhered to the bottom of the sentiment shape.  Pearls were coloured with the Dark Rococo Rose Stampin’ Blend before randomly adhering to the Card Front.~~~~~~

Game On – Day 1

G’Day Friends,

Thank you for popping by today.  It is very much appreciated.

This week I am sharing projects created with the fantastic Game On Stamp Set.  I wanted to also show creations for both male & female with this Stamp Set.

I’ve cut a piece of the Peony Garden DSP, adhered it to a piece of Very Vanilla before embossing the whole piece with the Pinewood Planks 3D Embossing Folder & then adding it to a Just Jade Base Card.

The hand of cards image was stamped onto Very Vanilla in Just Jade, fussy cut & adhered to the Card Front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I then stamped part of the image again, fussy cut the “Ace” & adhered this piece to the top of the “Ace” in the hand of cards.

The sentiment from the same set was stamped onto scrap Very Vanilla in Basic Grey, trimmed back to side & shape before being  adhere to the bottom right of the Card Front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

A simple & easy 15 minute card but one that could be used for either males or females.

Snailed It – Day 1

G’Day Friends,

Thank you for popping by today.  It is very much appreciated.

This week I asked my group what Stamp Set they would like featured for the week.  There ended up being 2 chosen so today I will be sharing Snailed It which just happens to be one of my favourites from the 2021 Jan-Jun Mini Catalogue.

The card I am sharing with you was created in January as a bonus for my Stamp & Card Club.  It is a simple one but one that suits the layout.

I adhered a piece of Snail Mail DSP to a strip of Bermuda Bay Cardstock & then to a piece of Basic White Cardstock before being adhered to a Blushing Bride layer & finally to a Real Red Base Card.

The cute little snail was stamped in Tuxedo Black Ink, colour with Watercolour Pencils, die cut with matching die from Snail Dies before being adhere to the Card Front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.The sentiment is from the It’s Your Day Stamp Set, stamped onto Basic White, die cut with Snail Dies before being adhered to the Card Front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

The little Resin Hearts which are part of the Snail Mail Suite were coloured with the Dark Bermuda Bay Stampin’ Blend before before being adhered to the Card Front.

A I mentioned a very easy & simple card but sometimes that is all you need.  Perfect for kids of all ages!

This or That – Rooted in Nature

G’Day Friends,

Thanks so much for dropping by today!  It’s been a little while since my last post but hopefully I will be more consistent with the posting.

Over on my FB Page & in my VIP Group, I posted a This or That photo with 2 different Stamp Sets, asking which one they would like to see projects created for.  Rooted in Nature was the clear winner BUT that is not to say that I won’t be sharing projects for Sailing Home!

Today’s share is a simple one created with a very simple masking technique.

The sentiment is from the Happiest of Birthdays Stamp Set & was stamped in Night of Navy.

Purple Posy Day #2

G’Day Friends,

Thanks so much for dropping by today!

It’s Day 2 of showcasing the lovely soft 2019-2021 In Colour of Purple Posy.

When creating with this colour, I find it hard to go past the fun Playing with Patterns DSP.  I also love the cute little Moving Along Stamp Set which I used  Monday as well.  I think they are made for each other but I will let you decide on that one.

I cut a strip of DSP, adhered it to a piece of Basic white Cardstock before wrapping a piece of Night of Navy Ribbon down the edge of the DSP.  This Ribbon is from the Playing with Patterns Ribbon Combo Pack.

The layer of Basic White was then adhered to a piece of Night of Navy before being adhered to the Purple Posy Base Card.

I stamped the little chopper onto scrap Basic White in Night of Navy Ink, coloured & blended with the Purple Posy Stampin’ Blend Combo before die cutting a circle with the Layering Circles Dies.  I cut a scallop circle from Night of Navy with the same dies.

These pieces were adhered together prior to adhering to Card Front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

The sentiment was stamped with Night of Navy Ink, punched with the Classic Label Punch & adhered to the left side of Card Front with Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals.

In my photo I finished the card off with Night of Navy Rhinestones from the Holiday Rhinestones but have since changed them out to the Playing with Patterns Resin Dots of Purple Posy which softened the whole look of the card more.
