Nature’s Harvest

G’Day Friends,

Thanks so much for popping in this morning.

I’ve been playing with the Harvest Meadow Suite, Page 54 of the July-December Mini Catalogue of late.  Sometimes, it can take me a little while to start playing with a new set but when I do, I then have to keep going as I discover how much i love it.  This Suite is no exception.

In fact, this was our November Challenge over in our #WCMG.

I have just realised that it is a Monochromatic Card in that it only uses Misty Midnight & Basic White with a slight touch of Night of Navy, so all blues & white.

The flowers were stamped onto Basic White Cardstock & die cut with the Harvest Dies.  The long reeds were die cut with the same Dies but from Night of Navy Cardstock.

The sentiment is from the same stamp set along with that lovely shape.  Isn’t it just a gorgeous shape?

The Card Front is a little different in that I cut part of it away prior to adhering the panel to the front.  I am not sure what it is called but I think it suits the Sketch Layout.

The card was finished off with a couple of Silver Metallic Pearls.

Now onto today’s card!

It is one I created during our 12 Days of Christmas – #12daysofchristmas – over in our World Card Making Fb Group.  We have just finished the 12 days & all in time for Christmas.

This is a fun technique that the lovely Annette from the Stampin with the Bees shared with us where we played with our White Craft Ink.  I haven’t played with this fun technique for so long & it was great to see how the White looked on our cards.

To create my simple & easy card, I dragged the White Craft ink over a piece of Night of Navy Cardstock, let it dry before adhering it to a Thick Basic White Card Base.

I then adhered a snowflake from the Wonderful Snowflakes Embellishments to the Card Front with a Mini Glue Dot.  I tied a large bow from the Silver Twine prior to adhering it to the centre of the snowflake with a Mini Glue Dot.

The sentiment was stamped onto a piece of Basic White Cardstock in Night of Navy Ink, die cut with the Layering Circles Dies & adhered over the bow & snowflake with a Stampin’ Dimensional.

To complete the card I randomly adhered Sequins from the Subtle Shimmer Sequins to the Card Front.

Easy peasy, right?

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

Happy Stamping!

Can you believe how fast Mondays come round?

My card today is one I created for a challenge in a FB Group – CASE-ing Tuesday

This time it was the 2021 July-December Catalogue, P30.

I decided to try & create a male card, although it could be for male or female.

I’ve used the lovely Harvest Meadow DSP for my strips.  They were adhered to a piece of Very Vanilla & then to a Misty Moonlight Base Card.A piece of the same DSP was chopped before being adhered over the top of the strips with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

The reeds were die cut with the Harvest Dies in Misty Moonlight prior to being adhered to the DSP panel.  The sentiment is from the Inspired Thoughts Stamp Set, stamped in Bumblebee Ink onto Very Vanilla, trimmed back to size & shape & adhere to the card front with Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Manly Monday with Friends are like Seashells

G’Day Friends,

Once again, its time for Manly Monday!

Today I have something a little different to share with you in that I pulled the Friends are like Seashells Stamp Set off my shelf.  Sad to say, this lovely stamp has not been used in sometime.

So now I have my Stamp Set, its Manly Monday, now to decide on the colours which is where Very Vanilla comes into play.

I have the both Cardstock & Stamp Set so its time to bring in colours that have not seen the light of day for sometime.  Out pops Cinnamon Cider along with Cherry Cobbler & Crumb Cake.  I’m not keen on Cinnamon Cider, Cherry Cobbler I will play with but Crumb Cake, now that is a keeper.  Well, that I have 1 colour that I love lol, I don’t want to make it too hard for myself.

Where to from here?  “Keep it simple”, I keep telling myself which is exactly what I think I’ve done.

The sentiment is from the Best Year Stamp Set, stamped direct onto the Very Vanilla in Cinnamon Cider Ink prior to being adhered to a Cinnamon Cider Base Card.

The shell was stamped in Crumb Cake Ink, again on Very Vanilla, die cut with the Seaside Seashells Dies & embossed with the Seashells 3D Embossing Folder.

The Cherry Cobbler DSP has been adhered to a piece of Crumb Cake Cardstock, then to Very Vanilla with Stampin’ Dimensionals & finally to the Cinnamon Cinder Base Card.

Sweet Ice Cream #2

G’Day Friends,

Today’s card is taken from the same sketch & with basically the same supplies I shared with you last week.  You can find the first card here.

The Sweet Ice Cream Stamp Set is such a fun set with lots of fun images.  Again, the paper is the Pansy Petals DSP.  I am having so much fun creating with these papers.

The colours are Old Olive. So Saffron & Rich Razzleberry along with Soft Suede.

It was finished off with the Holiday Rhinestones – one of my favourites & “go to” embellishments.

All I’ve done is changed out the colours & it looks a completely different card.  What do you think?

Blog Roll –


Happiest of Birthdays

G’Day Friends,

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

It’s Monday & that means its Manly Monday!  This time round I decided to recreate a card that popped up in my Pinterest Feed.  It is one that I created last year during Sale-a-Bration, so I thought why not try & re-create it & do it for the males.

You can see the original card HERE if you wish.  There is also a PDF Tutorial that you are able to download.

I just changed out the colours to Merry Merlot, Night of Navy, Smokey Slate & Basic White.

The sentiment is from the Happiest of Birthdays Stamp Set while the images are from the Tasteful Touches Stamp Set.

Looks totally different, don’t you think?

In fact I enjoyed creating this card again that I may do a few more this way so be on the lookout for more “throwbacks”.

Daisy Lane meets November Stamp ‘n Hop Blog Hop

G’Day Friends,

Welcome to the Stamp ‘N Hop Blog Hop for November!

We are a group of SU! Demos from all over the world sharing our love of Stampin’ Up! 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.

This month we get to CASE (Copy & Share Everything or Copy & Share Selectively) each other.  I couldn’t decide so I went with another Demo with the same name lol.

You may have arrived from Karen’s blog where she shared her lovely creation.  If you are starting from my blog, all you have to do is click on any of the photos below to visit & comment on all the other lovely creations.

So as I mentioned I decided to case card from Vickie Littlewood who is a SU! Demo from the UK.  This is not the card I decided to go with but loved that this card on her blog as it was a Fun Fold & it actually used one of my favourite Paper’s from the last current catalogue.  You can see Vickie’s original card by clicking HERE.  To top it all off Vicki actually had mesurements for her card.  How good was that?

I grabbed the pack of 2021-2023 In Colour 6 x 6 DSP Pack & went for Pale Papaya.  Not sure why but I did want to use the Daisy Lane Stamp Set.

Now the hard part, what colours to team up with Pale Papaya.  After much toing & froing, out popped Merry Merlot, So Saffron Old Olive & a touch of Coastal Cabana in the Artistry Sequins.

I stamped the long stem onto a piece of Basic White in Old Olive Ink prior to stamping the medium daisy above the stem in So Saffron Ink, as well onto a scrap Basic White prior to punching the 2nd daisy with the Medium Daisy Punch.  This daisy was then adhered to the stamped daisy with a Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals off setting the petals.

The sentiment was stamped in Merry Merlot Ink, adhered to a piece of Mery Merlot & then adhered to the Card Front with the fold on the right hand side.  You should be able to close the DSP flap over the top of the Merry Merlot flap.

I wasn’t too sure about the colour combination but once I added the touch of Coasta Cabana, the card sort of popped!  What do you think?

Sweet Ice Cream

G’Day Friends,

If you are in Qld, I do hope you are receiving some of this much needed rain.  I know we had lovely soaking rain last night & there is nothing better than listening to it on a tin roof while lying in bed!

My card today is from a video I did yesterday – you can see that here if you wish.  It’s using the Sweet Ice Cream Stamp Set along with the Pansy Petals DSP.  Are you sick of this paper yet as I’ve been using it lots lol.

The colours I’ve used are Calypso Coral, Pale Papaya & Early Espresso Inks, along with Calypso Coral, Basic White & Early Espresso Cardstock.

The Basic White panel & the sentiment shape have both been die cut with the Stitched Rectangles Dies.

Brilliant Wings

G’Day Friends,

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

I created my card today for a challenge but of course, promptly forgot to post it before the challenge closed, but I thought I would share it anyhow.

I’ve just rediscovered the gorgeous & oh so rich Rainbow Glimmer Paper along with the Artistry Blooms Sequins.  Once again both items are fast turing into my favourites.

The butterfly has been die cut from the same Glimmer Paper with the Brilliant Wings Dies before being adhered to a Basic White circle.

The sentiment is from the Art Gallery Stamp Set, stamped onto Basic White Cardstock in Memento Tuxedo Black Ink, trimmed back to size & shape prior to being adhering to the card front with Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals.
