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!

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.

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!

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.

Celebrate Sunflowers #2

G’Day Friends,

I have another project for you today using the Celebrate Sunflowers Bundle.

In fact it is one I took from the brand new Catalogue due to go live 4 May.

Again, I’ve used my Blending Brushes to blend Polished Pink Ink over a piece of Linen Cardstock – both new products in the Catalogue Cardstock left over.

It was then layered onto a piece of Basic White & then to a Mint Macaron Base Card.

The sentiment was stamped in Evening Evergreen Ink – new In-Colour – direct onto a piece of Mint Macaron before being die cut with the Tasteful Labels Dies.

A piece of Soft Sea Foam Cardstock was randomly stamped in Soft Sea Foam Ink with the small leaves from the Celebrate Sunflowers prior to being adhere to the back of the sentiment shape.

A piece of Flowers for Every Season Ribbon was then adhered to the back of the panel with Mini Glue Dots.

The sunflower shape was die cut from a piece of Basic White with the Sunflower Dies & then adhered to the centre of the Card Font before the panel adhered over the middle of the sunflower shape with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

The card was completed by randomly adhering Pearls to the Card Front.

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.

Seaside Spray Day #2

G’Day Friends,

I am well & truly playing catch up now as this is my 2nd post for today!

It’s Day #2 of Seaside Spray In Colour which is one of my favourites.  Do you have a favourite?

I’ve been digging out a few neglected Stamp Sets from my shelves & playing with them once again.

Today it is To a Wild Rose’s turn.  It’s been teamed up with Blushing Bride, Just Jade plus Seaside Spray.  Not forgetting Basic White of course.

I must admit, I am loving these colours & may have to play some more with this colour combination.

The flower is a 3 step image & was stamped onto a piece of Basic White in Seaside Spray Ink, stamping off twice, once & then direct onto the Cardstock.  I filled in the gaps with the little image from the same set which I must admit has been stamped in Petal Pink BUT only because I picked up the wrong colour.  This will teach me not to put Inks away when I have finished stamping with them, but it does blend in.

I then randomly chopped this stamped piece into 3’s prior to adhering to a piece of Blushing Bride Cardstock, Basic White & then to the Seaside Spray Base Card.

The sentiment was stamped in Seaside Spray Ink onto Basic White, die cut with the small oval from Layering Ovals Dies & adhered to a Just Jade scallop oval which was die cut from the same Dies prior to adhering to Card Front with Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals.

To complete the card, I randomly adhered 3 x Seaside Spray Butterfly Gems to the Card Front.
