Manly Monday with Sailing Home

G’Day Friends,

Today is Monday which means I get to share with you my 2nd card created from a piece of 6 x 6 DSP especially for #WCMD2021.

Sailing Home is one of my favourite Stamp Sets along with the Smooth Sailing Dies.  The colours are Balmy Blue, Basic White & Night of Navy.  The DSP is the Subtles 6 x 6 Pack.

You can see the 1st card created here.

Once again, it’s simple card but one that shows you a different way of chopping your DSP.

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

Happy Stamping!

Manly Monday with Sailing Home

G’Day Friends,

Today is Monday & I get to share with you a card created for the males that I created on Saturday during our World Card Making Day – #WCMD2021!  It was such a fun day but of course, the fun is still happening as we are all busy trying to create & catch up with or Make n Takes.

I decided to go with an one of my favourites – Sailing Home Stamp Set along with the Smooth Sailing Dies.  The colours are Balmy Blue, Basic White & Night of Navy.  Can’t go wrong with them, right?  The DSP is the Subtles 6 x 6 Pack.

It’s simple card but one that shows you a different way of chopping your DSP.

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

Happy Stamping!

 

Manly Monday with Biggest Wish

G’Day Friends,

Today is Monday & that means it is Manly Monday where I share with you a project created especially for the males in our lives.

I’ve been wanting to use the Stitched Triangle Dies for some time now & always seemed to find an excuse until I saw this card on Pinterest.  Thank you so much for your inspiration.  It has now opened up so many ideas & possibilities.

I then decided to go with colours that were a little out of my comfort zone – So Saffron & Garden Green.  Of course, I had to toss in Early Espresso along with Very Vanilla.

The DSP is the Packs of 6 x 6Subtles, Neutrals & Regals.  Don’t you just love how well they go together?

The sentiment is from Biggest Wish Stamp Set, stamped onto Very Vanilla in So Saffron & Early Espresso Inks.

The shapes have been die cut with the Stitched So Sweetly Dies.

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

Happy Stamping!

Manly Monday with Textures & Frames

G’Day Friends,

It’s been a little while since my last blog post but I have been posting on my FB Page.

It’s Monday which means its Manly Monday where I get to create a project just for the males in our lives.

I received my FREE Textures & Frames Stamp Set the other day & have been dying to bust it open & start playing.  I have lots of lovely creations to share with you this week with this particular Stamp Set.

I’ve used Night of Navy, Merry Merlot & Smokey Slate Inks.  The Cardstock is Very Vanilla, Merry Merlot & Night of Navy.

This Stamp Set calls for some quick & easy cards.  I can also see it creating lots of lovely scrapbook pages.

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

Happy Stamping!

Beautifully Penned DSP

G’Day Stampers,

Thank you for dropping by!

Today is Monday & that means it is time for Manly Monday where I get to share with you a project I’ve created mainly for the fellas.

I’ve used the Beautifully Penned DSP today from Sale-A-Bration & wanted to share that it can be used for both female & male.  Father’s Day is fast approaching in Australia & I wanted to create something for my Dad so that I could get it away in the mail in time for his day.

This lovely paper can be yours for FREE when spending $90 or more.  Check it out here.

The leaf has been die cut from Basic Black Cardstock with the Forever Flourishing Dies.  I tied a small bow with White Baker’s Twine before adhering to the stem of the leaf with a Mini Glue Dot.

The sentiment is from Best Year Ever & was stamped onto a piece of Basic White in Evening Evergreen Ink & adhered to the inside the Base Card allowing it to show through the front.

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

Happy Stamping!

Best Year Ever

G’Day Friends,

Thank you for dropping by!

This week I want to start a day each week where I will share with you a project created especially for the males.  Some of us have a hard time creating for the male.  I do hope you will join me & enjoy creating along with me.

Today is one that is fairly easy & simple but one that I am more than happy with.  PLUS it uses the FREE DSP from Sale-a-Bration – Peaceful Prints.  Do you recognise it?

A piece of the DSP has been randomly chopped into 3 pieces before being adhered to a piece of Sahara Sand Cardstock, then to a piece of Basic White & finally to a Basic Black Base Card.

The sentiment is from Best Year Ever Stamp Set, stamped onto a die cut shape in Memento Tuxedo Black Ink, adhered to a Basic Black die cut shape with Adhesive & then adhered to the Card Front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Both the shapes have been die cut with the fantastic Tasteful Labels Dies.

Male cards do not have to be hard, they can be as simple & easy as you like AND still look lovely.Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions.

Happy Stamping!

August Blog n Hop Blog Hop

G’Day Stampers,

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

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.

Thank you for visiting.  If you are starting from my blog all you have to do is click on the next arrow below to continue.  There is also a Roll Call at the end of this post in case you get a little lost.

For my card today, I decided to grab Sailing Home from my shelf.  It is one of my favourites but one that hasn’t seen ink in some time.

A piece of Basic White Cardstock was embossed with the Bark 3D Embossing Folder before being adhered to a piece of Night of Navy & then to a Thick Basic White Base Card.

The shape was die cut from Basic White with the Painted Labels Dies, the yacht stamped in the middle of the circle in Nigh of Navy Ink along with the birds & then adhered to the left side of the Card Front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

To finish it off, I stamped the sentiment onto a piece of scrap Basic White in Night of Navy Ink, chopped it back to size & into a banner shape before adhering it to the Card Front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

As I mentioned, a very simple & easy card but one that I am more than happy with.

Thanks again for visiting my blog today.

Be sure to click on all the links during this hop as it always interesting to see what everyone comes up with & how many ideas we can get from visiting.  Of course, a little love on the way of comments will surely be a lovely surprise to hoppers too.

You’re a Peach DSP

G’Day Friends,

Today I am sharing a small & easy card created with the lovely You’re a Peach DSP which is one of the selected DSP’s on sale this month.

I wanted to see if I could create a card for a male with the DSP & happy to say I think I achieved it.  In saying that, it could also be for the females too.

I’ve used the Happiest of Birthdays Stamp Set, along with Early Espresso Ink & Cardstock, Very Vanilla & Pear Pizzazz Cardstock and the lovely little Metallic Pearls.

As from today, Stampin’ Up! are having a DSP Sale on selected DSP for the month of July!  I couldn’t help myself as I placed an order this morning for the DSP that I didn’t have.

Not only is the sale happening but I will be sharing with you over the next month, simple & easy projects created with the selected DSP.

My first project has been created with the gorgeous In Good Taste DSP which just happens to be one of my favourites.

I’ve teamed the DSP up with the Whiskey Business Stamp Set, along with the Stitched So Sweetly Dies.

As I mentioned, very easy card but one that highlights the DSP & one that is perfect for male or female.
