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!

Textures & Frames #4

G’Day Friends,

Thanks for dropping by today.  It is always very much appreciated.

Today is the 3rd card I’ve created with the Textures & Frames Stamp Set which could be yours when spending $90 or more while the August-September Sale-a-Bration is happening.

I’ve chopped into the glamorous Be Dazzling Specialty Paper from Sale-a-Bration too.  I think it goes really well with the colours I’ve used.

The circles have been randomly stamped in Polished Pink, Coastal Cabana & Daffodil Delight Inks, while the sentiment is in Memento Tuxedo Black Ink & die cut with the shape from Stitched So Sweetly Dies.

Have you noticed the sentiment?  It’s called In Your Words & is from the Sale-a-Bration Host Stamp Set which could be yours when hosting a Party or placing a personal order over $500.  I am loving the sentiments in this set.

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

Happy Stamping!

Textures & Frames #2

G’Day Friends,

Today is my 2nd card with the fun Textures & Frames Stamp Set which is one of the products you can earn for free during August-September Sale-a-Bration.

I will be honest & say that after playing with this set it is now one of my favourites.  So many possibilities!

I saw this idea on Pinterest & must admit that this is exactly what the circles in the set reminded me of!  Thank you so much for your inspiration.

I was given a colour challenge to use Pool Party, Very Vanilla, Night of Navy & Cinnamon Cider which I am not a big fan of so it proved a little hard for me.  I am also not a fan of colour challenges but I played & this is the final result.   Note the minimum use of Cinnamon Cider lol.

What do you think?  Did I manage to hit the brief?

What are some of your least favourite colours  you like to create with?

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.

To download a free PDF Tutorial, all you have to do is click on the link below.  It includes both A4 – Metric & Imperial plus Letter size measurements.  Of course we can’t forget the List of Products to create your project.

Happy Stamping!

Happy Birthday to You

I’ve been playing with new goodies from the Occasion Catalogue 2016, especially the new Sunburst Thinlit Die & the coordinating Stamp Set – Sunburst Sayings the other day & this is what I come up with.  I wasn’t too sure of it when I put it together but it has slowly grown on me.

To create my card I rubbed a little Daffodil Delight & Tangerine Tango Ink onto a A4 Plastic Sheet, spritzed a little water from a Stampn’ Spritizer & then rubbed a sheet of Shimmery White CS into the ink.

Once dried, I then run it through the Big Shot with the Die & layered onto a piece of Basic Black CS, followed by a layer of Whisper White CS & finally the Base Card – Tangelo Tango.

I stamped “Happy Birthday to You” onto scrap Whisper White CS, punched with 1 3/8″ Circle Punch before layering onto a punched piece of Basic Black CS which has been punched from the 1 1/2″ Circle Punch & then onto the Card Front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

To complete my card, I coloured a couple of Rhinestones with a Permanent Black Marker & randomly adhered to the front.

Until next time, Happy Stampin’

Happy Birthday Zoey!

Today is my niece’s 1st birthday!  Hard to believe she was born 5 weeks premmy & who has grown into a very healthy & happy little girl.Zoey-wma-blog

I aw this Punch Art Giraffe on Pinterest a few months ago by & had to recreate it. People are so very clever & imaginative .  Thank you so much for your inspiration.

Now I will admit I am not the best when it comes to Punch Art, but I was sort of happy with my card.  I think Zoey or rather her mum will love it.  I did change a couple of things, including Embossing Folders, Dies, Punches & Colours.

If I get a chance in the Christmas break, I will do a tutorial on how I created her.

Until next time, Happy Stampin’

I saw a lovely card on Pinterest & luckily I was able to find the original again.

For my colours, I went straight to my Colour Coach & ended up with Pool Party, Pink Pirouette & Always Artichoke.

Card #2 for the Males

Our card today is the 2nd one we did in our class last month.  Again, it is a very CAS – Clean & Simple Card, but one I am happy with.

I stamped the Globe Image onto a scrap of Very vanilla CS in Memento Black prior to punching out with Extra-Large Oval Punch.  I also punched a piece of Basic Black CS with the same Punch & adhered to the stamped piece but just showing a small amount of Black down 1 side.

A piece of Crumb Cake DSP from the Neutrals Stack was layered onto a piece of Basic Black CS before a strip of Basic Black CS was adhered across the middle.  The punched Ovals were adhered to the DSP with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I stamped “Happy Birthday” from “Crazy About You” onto a scrap of Very Vanilla CS, cut down to size, cut into a Banner Shape one end & adhered to the strip of Basic Black, tucking the end under the punched Ovals.

This piece was then adhered to the Base Card – Crumb Cake.

To finish the card, I adhered 3 Basic Back Candy Dots to the bottom right corner.

Until next time Happy Stampin’
